Pre-weekend Weekend Lunch Invite 56. Give Lady Liberty Back Her Cupric Sheen
I find it remarkable that nobody noticed that it's been January 1999 all last month. Yeesh! Where's my editors?
I have yet to see the play Kelly Gunter is in at RIT. It's called The American Clock, a series of vignettes about the Great Depression.
I did get a chance to see The Neo-Futurists from Chicago perform Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind last week with Kage and Anita at Nextstage at Geva (75 Woodbury Blvd.) They sort of sub-title it "30 plays in 60 minutes" because the audience gets to yell out suggestions from a menu of vignettes. Although it could have been a better here and there, overall it was great entertainment. I'm planning to go again sometime this week to see it again to see what they've added.
You know, I was just watching that new IBM commercial for their e-commerce crap with the guy swiping all the stuff at the grocery store. I realized the (presumably) elderly (presumably) people scooting around on their Rascal'sTM where a knod to the nerd in all of us. I mean, what harm could those kindly but nozy scooting non-ambulatory individuals do, unless of course, they were Daleks! That's right, those pepper-shaker devils with their photo-negative death ray are menacing the poor stereotyped deviant, puttering around like a bunch of Davros'esses on a quest of absolute domination.
Movies this week:
Tonight at 8:30 p.m., The Neo-Futurists from Chicago perform Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind at Nextstage at Geva (75 Woodbury Blvd.) which is "30 plays in 60 minutes" where the audience gets to yell out suggestions from a menu of vignettes. Oh yeah, and it costs $10 for the tickets plus the number rolled on a six-sided die in dollars (i.e. $1 to $6) when you get there.
As everyone has probably heard, an Evening of Jazz featuring Bobby McFerrin with the Eastman School of Music faculty and students will be at Eastman Theatre (60 Gibbs St.) at 8:00 p.m. Be sure to get tickets in advance.

Links of the Week:
Computer Geeks: You get the idea from the name. Basically, this is an online store that sells all the best junk that any nerdy pack rat would want. How can you resist $1.75 CD-RW's, right? Their site is a little clumsy to get around, but they're cheap, honest (so far) and reliable (so far).
(Maybe the link of the week will just fade away if I can't get the archive set up ... and I've got "book reports" to do!)
