The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing The Others starting at 8 p.m. and again on Sunday at 7 p.m. The only way I'd attend if it were free ... which it is for Eastman House members on tonight's screening. Hopefully the quality of the film and its suspense does not hinge on a silly plot twist.

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing También la lluvia(Even the Rain) starting at 8 p.m. Having seen the trailer, I'm fascinated by this dark tale of "a cocky young director whose political sympathies run a distant second to his all-consuming passion for filmmaking. Shooting a revisionist account of Columbus's conquest of the Americas in the cheap-labor mecca of Bolivia, [the director] soon learns that history isn't the only thing that needs revising: rising opposition to corporate theft of local water resources becomes difficult to ignore. A film that questions the sincerity and priorities of monied movie producers invading the third world — that is, an ongoing critique of itself."

Dave Wetzel will be at Lori's Natural Foods (900 Jefferson Rd.) today from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. to discuss Cod Liver Oil — It's History, Manufacturing (Past and Present) and the Health Benefits. Smells like snake oil pseudoscience to me ... and, naturally, Wikipedia's article has a heavy talk page discussing whether the main article is factual. Personally: just show me the links to the peer-reviewed studies that demonstrate positive effects. And if there are benefits, are they better than just eating fish?

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.
