The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Enter The Void starting at 8 p.m. — a "first-person POV head trip par excellence, Enter the Void seemingly violates the laws of physics as its camera glides and swoops through the strip clubs, back alleys, and love hotels of the Tokyo underworld."

The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Ibun Sarutobi Sasuke(Samurai Spy) starting at 8 p.m. "After fourteen years of rule by the Tokugawa clan, trouble stirs when a spy for the shogunate threatens to defect to the opposition. Unwittingly drafted into the conflict, neutral samurai Sasuke Sarutobi sets out to find the defector, making his way through a maze of double agents, corrupt officials, and persecuted minorities.

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.

(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.
