I headed out today on my morning run and decided I'd expand it a little to see if I could participate in the 10 kilometer part of The Medved Lilac 10K and 5K Family Fun Run rather than the 5K I did last year. Well, things didn't go so great. The bottoms of my feet were sore, I abraded one of my toes, and I was getting some rash-like feeling where my clothes were rubbing. I'm not sure it was due to the 3/4 mile I added to the course as much as it was just a bad run. Since the wet morning we had earlier in the week (the one with the snow, hail, and graupel — thanks, Gerry for reminding me of the word), my feet have been more tender and generally a bit out of whack. Hopefully the two days of not running on the weekend will be enough, but I may take a "sick day" on Monday as well. No sense adding, well, injury to injury.
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.
The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing ¡Viva Zapata! starting at 8 p.m. From the Eastman House calendar: "inflamed by the unfair agricultural practices of corrupt officials, illiterate peasant Emiliano Zapata (Marlon Brando, in his second of three collaborations with director Kazan) reluctantly becomes a revolutionary Robin Hood in the mountains of Mexico."

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing La chatte à deux têtes,(Porn Theater) starting at 8 p.m. Again from the Eastman House calendar: "in this compassionate look at clandestine sexual encounters among homosexual Parisians from writer-director-costar Jacques Nolot, Porn Theater depicts moments of intimacy within the confines of a sleazy adult movie theater."

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
Jake's World or JakesWorld which is a site of a Rochester animator.
