The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Being Human starting at 8 p.m. From the Eastman House calendar, "in one of the most intriguing and underrated films of the 1990s, writer/director Forsyth takes us through several thousand years of history to illustrate the eternal human struggle to find peace and happiness. Robin Williams stars in five separate episodes: as a caveman in prehistorical times, a slave to a Roman citizen (John Turturro), a Medieval wanderer, a Portuguese shipwreck survivor, and a divorced father in contemporary Manhattan. 'This being a Forsyth movie, everything is scaled down to human proportions. The movie leaves you feeling there's more to it than meets the eye.'—Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader"

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.
