Weekly Rochester Events #581 Starting Thursday, February 25, 2010
There are no new blog posts this week, but you can review the blog for older posts.
At today's Thursday Thinkers, Maria Thomas Fisher will present Retain the Brains: Keeping College Grads in Rochester from 12:12 p.m. to 12:52 p.m. in The Kate Gleason Auditorium at The Rochester Public Library (115 South Ave.) My suggestion: stop calling smart people "brains".

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Panique aux village(A Town Called Panic) starting early at 6 p.m. and again at 8 p.m., and then on Saturday and Sunday at 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. According to the Eastman House calendar, "the impetuous Cowboy and Indian, eager to buy a birthday gift for their more mature roommate, Horse, accidentally set off a chain of events that destroys their residence and places their innocent neighbor behind bars." I think it'll be pretty cool.

Today at The Baobab Cultural Center (728 University Ave., formerly on Gregory St.) is another discussion in their Community Dialogue Series titled A Single Story: Representation of Africa in the Media facilitated by Dr. Hussain B. Ahmed and featuring Anthony Jordan, and Chojy Shroeder starting at 7 p.m.
Tusedays at Boulder Coffee Co. (100 Alexander St.) starting around 8 p.m. is A.K.A. Paul Burke Presents featuring Paul Burke and other people, perhaps performing.
At his show on February 25, Seth Faergolzia did not mention the show originally scheduled for tonight with Boulder Coffee Co. (100 Alexander St.) with Kimya Dawson and I'm very sure it is not going to happen ... check out tomorrow if you can make it, though.

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Körkarlen(The Phantom Chariot) starting at 8 p.m. From the Eastman House calendar: "one of the towering achievements of silent cinema, director Sjöström's (The Wind, He Who Gets Slapped) allegory is based on a Swedish legend that the last person to die each year must drive the chariot that collects the dead. When an inebriated brawler dies at midnight on New Year's Eve, he is given the chance to review and correct his life's errors." Live piano accompaniment by Philip C. Carli.

This page is Jason Olshefsky's list of things to do in Rochester, NY and the surrounding region (including nearby towns Irondequoit, Webster, Penfield, Pittsford, Victor, Henrietta, Gates, Chili, Greece, and Charlotte, and occasionally other places in Monroe County and the Western New York region.) It is updated every week with daily listings for entertainment, activities, performances, movies, music, bands, comedy, improv, poetry, storytelling, lectures, discussions, debates, theater, plays, and generally fun things to do.
Music events are usually original bands with occasional cover bands and DJ's with musical styles including punk, emo, ska, swing, rock, rock-and-roll, alternative, metal, jazz, blues, noise band, experimental music, folk, acoustic, and "world-beat."
Events listed take place during the day, in the evenings, or as part of the city's nightlife as listed.
Although I'm reluctant to admit it, it is a Rochester blog and I'm essentially blogging about Rochester events.
I also tend to express opinions, review past events, make reviews, speak of philosophy or of a philosophical nature, discuss humanity and creativity.
Oh, and it's spelled JayceLand with no space and a capital L, not Jayce Land, Jaycee Land, Jace Land, Jase Land, Joyce Land, Jayce World, Jayceeland, Jaceland, Jaseland, Joyceland, Jayceworld, Jayceeworld, Jaceworld, Jaseworld, nor Joyceworld. (Now if you misspell it in some search engine, you at least get a shot at finding it.)
It's also not to be confused with
or JakesWorld which is a site of a Rochester animator.
While I'm on the topic of keywords for search engines, this update includes information for Thursday, February 25, 2010 (Thu, Feb 25, 2010, 2/25/2010, or 2/25/10) Friday, February 26, 2010 (Fri, Feb 26, 2010, 2/26/2010, or 2/26/10) Saturday, February 27, 2010 (Sat, Feb 27, 2010, 2/27/2010, or 2/27/10) Sunday, February 28, 2010 (Sun, Feb 28, 2010, 2/28/2010, or 2/28/10) Monday, March 1, 2010 (Mon, Mar 1, 2010, 3/1/2010, or 3/1/10) Tuesday, March 2, 2010 (Tue, Mar 2, 2010, 3/2/2010, or 3/2/10) and Wednesday, March 3, 2010 (Wed, Mar 3, 2010, 3/3/2010, or 3/3/10).
