Pre-weekend Weekend Lunch Invite 48. Round Round Valentina Vladimirovna Tereshkova, Baby Right Round

You really should stop eating those Thanksgiving leftovers by now.


But not seriously, I decided to cut down the repeat stuff to a minimum 'cause everyone has already heard it.

Oh, and to finish a series of one-sentence paragraphs, be sure to get over to the WBER website to vote for your favorite alternative songs of the year and your favorite alternative albums of all time. I'd love to hear them have to play Thomas Dolby, Kate Bush, Baltimora, Blondie, The Dream Academy or Pink Floyd.

So much for having four one-sentence paragraphs.


Movies this week:

  • Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo: Rob Schneider plays a ho. One word: eww. However, l though the scenes with Amy Poehler as the girl with Tourette syndrome looked pretty funny.
  • The Green Mile: Tom Hanks plays a slightly-less-racist-than-everyone-else in this touching story about an impossibly selfless and humane contrived character who happens to be a gigantic black man accused of murdering a child.


I'm not sure how much I'll miss of the world today, but today is the Beers of the World Party at Sun (aka work) and then I've got to get rid of "the" truck and get my car back.

As a general rule, if you've got nothing to do, Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is a great bet for a good band. I've never seen them, but tonight is Snaggletooth.

Karaoke at Drinks by Mary Dawn (535 S. Clinton.)

WBER's Alternative Music night at Red (171 St. Paul.)


If you see John B. today, tell him he's old.

More car stuff tonight...hopefully the new tires will be done lickety split.

Karaoke at Boston Brew Company (251 Exchange Blvd.)


O'Bagelo's at 165 State Street at noon.

Treehouse Cinema's Movie Night, 9:30 p.m., The Treehouse 693 East Ave.) This week: A Brief History of Time. As Carl from the Monroe County Baha'i Mailing List put it:

    Steven Hawkings, considered to be the most brilliant living physicist, illustrates in everyday terms fascinating implications of his theories. What if the expansion of the universe slows to a stop, and then begins to contract...Will time and events replay in reverse?


Happy Paper Anniversary to Sue & Stan.

FOX's Sunday Night Animation:

  • King of the Hill - To Kill a Ladybird - Dale has a hallucinatory experience after he is scratched by Bobby's pet raccoon.

  • Futurama - A Head in the Polls - While a couple of clones campaign for the presidency, Bender sells his robot body to Richard Nixon.

After all that, skip The X Files and learn about the cast of "Gilligan's Island" on The E! True Hollywood Story on E!. Of course it'll be on a slew of times through the week as well. There will be a quiz later.


In lieu of nothing on Mondays, Matthew Sweet will be at Milestones (170 East Avenue.)


Open mic comedy at the Colosseum Caffe (262 Park Ave.) starting around 9:00.

The Forest or The Trees
If a tree falls in the forest and there's nobody there to hear it, does it make a sound?
