    JayceLand Pick The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Last Train Home starting at 8 p.m. Here's what the Eastman House Calendar has to say: "the annual mass migration of millions of Chinese factory workers, who return to their provincial villages from large cities at Chinese New Year, provides the stirring backdrop for this documentary look at one couple's dramatic journey to be reunited with their children. Because their jobs require being separated, the Zhangs have only seen their son and daughter once a year since they were born. Now a teenager largely being raised by her grandmother, the elder Qin is hoping to leave school and find a factory job herself, despite the protests of her parents, who believe that education is the only way out of this tragic cycle. With a visually poetic style and an observant eye, director Lixin Fan builds to a series of heartbreaking scenes that place a very human perspective on this epic-sized movement of people." [source: Dryden Theater calendar] [all ages]

When the promise is broken years later, it unleashes a curse that leads to a young maiden becoming possessed by an evil spirit.

    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. While I'm on the topic of keywords for search engines, this update includes information for Thursday, October 21, 2010 (Thu, Oct 21, 2010, 10/21/2010, or 10/21/10) Friday, October 22, 2010 (Fri, Oct 22, 2010, 10/22/2010, or 10/22/10) Saturday, October 23, 2010 (Sat, Oct 23, 2010, 10/23/2010, or 10/23/10) Sunday, October 24, 2010 (Sun, Oct 24, 2010, 10/24/2010, or 10/24/10) Monday, October 25, 2010 (Mon, Oct 25, 2010, 10/25/2010, or 10/25/10) Tuesday, October 26, 2010 (Tue, Oct 26, 2010, 10/26/2010, or 10/26/10) and Wednesday, October 27, 2010 (Wed, Oct 27, 2010, 10/27/2010, or 10/27/10).
