John Montgomery's Creep of the Week
CNN Almanac: 1999-Oct-28
Internet Movie Database
On this day ... October 28
Diluting your word power:
Mennonite is any of a number of natural countertop surface materials, such as wood or marble.

Pre-weekend Weekend Lunch Invite 42. Oh freddled gruntbuggly . . .
I thought I'd do a scary Halloween theme, so I picked the scariest company I could find and copied their web page style. For those of you with a brave heart and those of you who have stayed, look into my face and note: to look into my face is to look into the face of evil. Sorry...sometimes I slip into a Kids in the Hall sketch by accident.
Movies this week:
Karaoke at Drinks by Mary Dawn (535 S. Clinton) starts around 10:15 or so and starts to fill up around 9:00. Last week I gave it a second shot--as it turns out, two weeks ago was the first time the talent brigade* didn't show up. Rob and Steve just weren't there and Meghan and Marianne were in NYC. They were back last week, so I took some more pictures.
For those curious about the tender underbelly of the
George Eastman House
(900 East Avenue)
they're giving you your chance. It's creatively called the
"Photography Vault Open House" and it offers tours
of the photo vault (imagine that). Tours start at 7 and 9,
included with museum admission.
Julia's Star will be playing at Red (171 St. Paul.) They're an alternative band, most similar perhaps to Portisehead in that they use a couple keyboards, a DJ, and have sort of an etherial sound. I'm not sure how this works, but Global Groove with Lino will be there from 10 to 2, then Rob Morley & Junkie B. from -- get this -- 2am to 5am.
Booo...Woooo...OooohBagelo's. Scary. 165 State Street. Noon.
This afternoon, I figure we can all pop over to the Sony Theater at the corner of 68th and Broadway in New York to see Being John Malkovich. We can probably catch an 8:00 show if we leave at 1:00 and be back before dawn. Damn you limited release!
Night brings many Halloween options...
First is a Halloween party featuring White Cotton Panties with Sedona & Sweatin' Like Nixon at Richmonds (21 Richmond St.)
Next is the Snmnmnm concert -- the last show in Rochester. It's at Java's at 16 Gibb Street. Of course, some character named Seamus Kennedy is playing at Milestones (170 East Avenue) on November 14. His name is interestingly the same as the lead singer of Snmnmnm.
Also, at the Village Rock Cafe (213 Main St., East Rochester) will be a Halloween party featuring Breakfast Club, a retro-80's band which I've yet to see. However, being an eighties junkie, I must. Someday.
For more movie-like entertainment, the
is showing the Curse of the Blair Witch, a documentary about
the "real" Blair Witch.
Remember to get up early this morning to set the 2:00 a.m. clock back to 1:00 a.m. so that you too can celebrate the end of the last daylight savings time of the 1900's. Be sure to only do it once, despite the second occurence of 2:00.
For another to-do, remind Tom Pierce incessantly that he is now thirty years old. Refuse to understand anything that he says and simply reply, "You just don't understand me, old man!"
But the event of the day is Perette's Halloween Party. It's at her house starting around 1:00 p.m. See the link for details.
Once again, new Simpsons. Two episodes...first, Homer causes an
incident at the nuclear power plant; radiation from X-rays gives Bart
and Lisa superpowers; and Flanders is killed (Guest voices: Lucy Lawless,
Tom Arnold and Dick Clark.) Next, the rerun: Treehouse of Horror IX
... Homer uses a dead convict's scalp as a toupee; Itchy and Scratchy
chase Bart and Lisa; "The Jerry Springer Show" (Guest voices:
Regis Philbin, Kathie Lee Gifford, Ed McMahon and Jerry Springer.)
Today's "Camera Rochester" meeting (once again at Atonement Lutheran Church at 1900 Westfall Road) from 7:30 to 9:30. Since this is a first Monday, they're doing another contest. With a little effort, I should be able to throw together a couple pix and give it a shot.
I had forgotton about this since Token Joe's open mic comedy
used to overlap, but Java's at
16 Gibb Street
hosts an open mic poetry read each Tuesday. I saw it in City then
decided to check it out. It's not nearly as lame as Barnes & Noble
because the people are tougher (al dente), yelling over the espresso machine
Just South Park at Rohrbach's at 315 Gregory Street. Showtime at 10:00. Another new episode? You betcha...The boys fall prey to the Chinpoko Mon craze, which drives their parents to come up with a way to win back their attention.
For those who want a little culture in your life, the "Real World" Reunion Tour will visit SUNY Brockport featuring David from Seattle, Kaia from Hawaii and Puck from San Fransisco.
*The talent brigade is of course Meghan and Marianne from White Cotton Panties and Rob and Steve from 5Head. Aren't you glad you clicked.
