Weekly Rochester Events #229: Saskatchewan Settled
Thursday, May 29, 2003Ok, we are definitely back at O'Bagelo's (165 State Street) this Saturday for lunch.
Now that that's out of the way, I thought I'd mention that I'm writing this from the Henrietta New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (2199 E. Henrietta Rd., Suburban Plaza) See, I got this little trailer last winter and registered it, but I need to get it inspected. I dug through all the crap in my house but couldn't find the stupid registration card. So, I decided to go get a replacement registration. I thought it would be short-term quicker to get it in person. So, on Tuesday I went down to New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (2199 E. Henrietta Rd., Suburban Plaza) but the lines were huge ... like probably an hour. I didn't have my computer so I thought I'd just head back.
I'm also looking for CATV distribution amplifiers and such for the in-home system I'm working on so I stopped at Radio Shack to see if they had any. The only things they sell now are overpriced satellite dish boosters, so I tried Target then Best Buy Frustrated, I went home empty handed. I'll have to wait until the end of the week to go to the Rochester Hamfest (which, by the way, is this weekend.)
So on Wednesday I figured I'd just pop out of work and go to the office in Victor. Well, the closest office is in Canandaigua so I thought I'd stop at the mobile office in Highland Park (Reservoir Dr.) on Wednesdays. Well, I underestimated that since it was raining or something that it would take me an extra 20 minutes to get home, so by the time I get there (and step in a big puddle in a downpour) they're already closed ... 3:06 p.m. and they're packing up. I figured, "Fine. I'll just go to Henrietta because I've got the laptop today." So here I am ... #A320, waiting for my number to come up. When I got in they were on A295 or so, and after a half hour they're up to A308. Great. Just another hour or so.
Anyway, like I mentioned, Rochester Hamfest at the The Dome Center (E. Henrietta Rd. and Calkins Rd.) is this weekend. I have a big list of crap to get, but I'm not selling this year. I really seriously thought that it would rain this weekend when they put the advance tickets on sale in March which is why I opted out. I guess it might rain, but it's a pretty good shot.
As for activity, I got practically nothing done. On Tuesday night I did get out to Rochester Visual Studies Workshop (31 Prince St.) to see the noise band show. Nothing too new ... 50% Beam Splitter played very very loud. I thought they were interesting because they were right on the line between noise and non-noise, background and foreground ... I couldn't really get anything from their sound as far as music but I also couldn't let my mind drift either and treat them purely as noise. Next was Pengo who played loud and rumbly ... I didn't think it was one of their best performances. Next was Mystery Brinkman who was one guy who did this atonal grinding ... it was slightly interesting because it made me feel a little angry. Finally was Nautical Almanac who were kinda okay I guess. They do guttaral vocalizations over distorted electronics.
