Rubblebucket’s un-quiet riot There’s no pure rock ’n’ roll anymore. But it could be argued that there never was any in the first place; that the genre was the bastard offspring of mismatched parents looking for kicks in the backseat of America. If you insist on seeking out some semblance of purity, you have to look to bands that adhere to rock’s attitude and non-conformity. Modern bands that may not immediately fit your definition of “rock,” but which sprang and continue to spring from the loins of the music’s seminal rebellion.

Brooklyn-based Rubblebucket is a frenzied eight-piece rock ’n’ roll phenomenon, and a perfect example of what I’m going on about. Its influences are diverse, its lineage is deep, and its sound is epic. The band’s polyrhythmic world-beat thunder and wailing wall of soulful brass is countered by elements of New Wave, synth-pop, and funk. It’s all topped off with a vibrant vocal quirk and an element of unconventional indie-pop sweet and sour, resulting in a band of remarkably impure purity and a uniquely indefinable sound.

Guns, controls and America

We all deplore and mourn the loss of innocent lives. Children! Twenty! Now everyone is up in arms (no pun intended) to institute stronger measures of gun control. I wonder how many youth have been gunned down daily on the streets of our urban communities throughout the nation. Does anybody have a count? We can have some ideas of those killed where we live by listening to the local news. The impact seems minimal because the carnage is not geographically concentrated, the victims are not seen to be genteel, and in many cases they not regarded as innocent. But, these are our children, too. These, too, could have been America’s future, had their innocence not been destroyed by the hostile social environment into which they were born, in which they were forced to live, and in which they had to try to survive. Where has the cry for gun control laws been up until now? The bells tolled on Friday. Let us hold in our hearts and minds, they tolled for all.

“But only a small percentage of people with mental illness become violent.” True, but only a (very) small percentage of gun owners become violent also. As for your goal of banning all guns from civilian use: good luck with that. There’s the pesky Second Amendment to contend with. ROCHESTER MUSICIAN

Posted on rochestercitynewspaper.com So we are to give up the ONLY thing keeping the federal government from total tyranny? With the Patriot Act and NDAA along with the Political Protest bill just passed, we already live in a pseudo fascist state. The only thing keeping the corporate fascist state-run government from putting us into camps is our right to bear arms. Your statements are the most ignorant ones I have come across in a very long time. With all this legislation passed in the last 10 years, we are near the same point Germany was right before the Nazi’s took power. The last right to go was the citizen’s right to bear arms. A mentally sick person was armed and probably fulfilled some promise he made in anger to his parents. We need real mental-health care, not a gun ban. We need to mandate insurance companies to provide coverage for medicine, mental-health care, and therapy – now! PAUL SCHRAMM

Posted on rochestercitynews.com

On Urban Journal’s commentary on the Newtown killings, “Our Legal WMD’s: This article just bleeds uneducated ignorant filth: “Mental illness did not kill the 20 little children and six adults in Sandy Hook school. A gun did.” Guns are incapable of anything unless handled by a human who is willing to inflict harm on whatever that gun is pointed at.

“So we are to give up the ONLY thing keeping the federal government from total tyranny?” I’m not anti guns, but I have never understood this argument. A bunch of relatively untrained citizens with a mishmash of firearms is supposed to be a threat to the most powerful military in the world? This might have been feasible in the 1800’s, but come on. We live in a time where a drone can take you out while you’re doing your weekly shopping. Your gun collection isn’t protecting you from the government at all.

The rifle looks like a piece of military hardware, yes, but that really doesn’t matter. It’s about as tame as rifles get. Practically every rifle and handgun in this country is semi-automatic and capable of firing as fast as one can pull a trigger (one shot fired per pull). Contrary to what the media seems to push, we are NOT dealing with fully automatic weapons (holding the trigger-continuous fire) on our streets. The focus on guns is really useless. Over 300 million guns in this country, and they are basically equivalent when it comes to killing things. They aren’t going away. This shooting was the result of extremely, criminally poor parenting; a severely mentally ill man/ child was trained to shoot by his mother, and lived in a home with many firearms. SYLPH

Posted on rochestercitynewspaper.com The point is that there are many mentally ill people out there with possible dreams of horrific acts, and the gun gives them a VERY easy way to carry out this fantasy. Guns make killing someone an instant, emotional response to a bad situation. To people who say “he could have done this with a knife”: show me the knife that can be thrown around a room and hit 10 people in 10 seconds. Killing someone with a knife is a close-up personal act that requires thought; a gun allows the person to just shoot everything in sight. HAHVAHD ST.

Posted on rochestercitynews.com I guess I am the only person in the universe who is not shocked or surprised by what happened in Newtown. It was clear many years ago that this country had a serious problem with violence, yet guns remain freely available, “entertainment” grows even more horrific, mental health is entirely ignored, and we continue to express our complete disdain for life by making health care a profitmaking endeavor.

Our government is representative of whatever corporations or individuals can finance political campaigns that are run via television ads and is therefore composed by a group of immature selfserving people who appear completely unable to delay gratification. So when someone whose frightened family has been unable to obtain any help picks up a freely available assault weapons and mows down those who are incapable of any defense at all and who cannot be motivated by a desire to remain alive, I frankly don’t see why no one expected it. KBARSZ

The path to meaningful change

A list of US foreign policy “achievements” since World War II is enough to explain why the United States, unquestionably the darling nation of people the world over after the war, is now widely despised. Arrogant US stonewalling at the recent Doha Climate Summit is only the most recent (though possibly most catastrophic) example. In cultures less zombified than our own by consumerist addiction, social movements not only occur but often bring about meaningful change. Iceland in 2008 had the worst financial collapse ever suffered by any country to date with the market cap of their stock exchange dropping 90 percent. Between one and two percent of the entire Icelandic population showed up to protest the greed maniacs and crooks in government and banking. This helped awaken Parliament to its duties, and it passed legislation that helped Iceland make a full recovery, unlike the US or the EU. And the prime minister, Geir Haarde, has been indicted for negligence in the financial collapse. The US Savings and Loan crisis of the 80’s and 90’s resulted in 1000 felony convictions. After

our own multi-trilliondollar collapse of 2008, Obama’s attorney general is batting zero after one failed prosecution of the notoriously scurrilous Goldman Sachs. But Obama is funding-dependent on the Banking Brotherhood, and Holder was, in a prior incarnation, one of Big Banking’s many lawyers. So while poor Eric Holder was ever so frustrated in his failed prosecution, he and his boss got the desired result: nada. And that is what the American public got as well: no accountability, lots of continuing criminal impunity. If three or six million (1 or 2 percent) of us just showed up, could change happen? It obviously won’t otherwise, since in addition to the Great No Accountability Administration, there is the Congress about which Senator Dick Durbin accurately remarked: “The banks frankly own this place.” It is difficult to see why banks will clean up their act, or why business practice generally will become more ethical in our land of fraud with impunity. It is clear that citizens are angry with the banks. The Rochester Band of Rebels (200 members) protests this very impunity every week on Monday in front of one of the big banks. But where are the other 2,000 to 4,000 Rochester residents or 8,000 to 15,000 Monroe County residents? “Mad as hell” but taking it on the chin anyway? Still? Expect global warming to end life in a civilization near you soon.

MIKE CONNELLY, ROCHESTER

This was very disappointing, as I usually enjoy City’s editorials. It sucks, but you cannot prevent every tragic event like this just through legislation. You really need to have a way to defend yourself, and guns are a citizen’s best hope to do that. WAVE RIDER

GUEST COMMENTARY | BY JOHN KLOFAS

INDIA CUISINE

Guns, criminal justice, and a national agenda On January 21, Barack Obama begins his second term as president. While for many Americans that milestone brings a sense of optimism and anticipation, there is also concern, growing out of a disappointment over opportunities not addressed in his first term. In this space in the weeks leading up to that milestone, three Rochesterians will address key issues that need to be on the agenda of the president and Congress. There are things that are simply too terrible. The shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, qualifies. The nation, and the world, now wrestles with how to make sense of it and what to do. I choose to be optimistic, largely because there seems to be no other choice. To think that the world we live in will not change now is simply unbearable. The only question to be considered is how we move forward. Nothing in the long presidential campaign that we just closed would seem to prepare us for this question. There was almost no mention of crime and justice. How could candidates who sat through a string of mass shootings avoid any mention of the problem of guns in the United States? Between the end of 2010, when the Republican primary came into full swing, and the November election, there were nine mass shooting incidents in the US, including the one in a Colorado movie theatre. In the wake of Sandy Hook, the candidates, the press, and the rest of us should all feel shame for the failure of our democratic process. But presidential campaigns may be the wrong place to look to for sound policy proposals. Ever since Republican presidential candidate Barry Goldwater added crime to the national political agenda in 1964, Republicans and Democrats have fought for the title as toughest, not smartest, on crime. Our brand of political discourse has almost always meant more crime laws, more drug laws, more prisons, longer sentences, and of course, flirtation with state-sponsored death. As a result, the population of prisons and jails grew from 350,000 to over 2 million in less than 4 1/2 decades. Today, with budgets in mind, we are now trying to undo those indulgences. So the question remains: How do we move forward? There is reason for optimism. As in the past, forces outside electoral politics can drive the agenda. It happened with drunk driving. On that issue, there has been sea change in American attitudes and behavior. It started with victims, their family members, and concerned and sensible citizens demanding to be heard, and it began with the death of a 13-year-old girl and the founding of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) in 1980. Since then, yearly drunk driving fatalities have fallen by more than half.

Our guest columnists: RIT Criminal Justice Professor John Klofas, on the issues of gun control and criminal justice; Rochester Mayor Tom Richards on the needs of cities; and the Rev. Marvin McMickle, president of Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School, on poverty. Mary Anna Towler’s Urban Journal column will return in mid-January.

It also happened with domestic violence, something only whispered about until the early 1970’s. The feminist movement changed that, and the battered-women’s movement grew from a handful of shelters across the country to producing major legislative changes in social policy, criminal justice, and health care. Although the concept of “legitimate rape” did make its way into the recent political campaign, that ended well enough, with electoral defeats of its defenders. In important ways, our problem with guns looks like those two issues before the public outcry. Domestic violence advocates and drunk-driving reformers created change that overcame longstanding culture and tradition. While there was little political will at the start, that deficit was eventually overwhelmed by public will. There are also other, even more current reasons to be optimistic. Crime policy has almost always been promoted as a statement of unimpeachable values, just like gun values. It has been especially true when it comes to drugs. Yet in the same election season where the pols sat still on crime, two states voted to legalize marijuana for recreational use, and others joined the now 18 states where laws support its medical use. Regardless of how the US Department of Justice responds to this state-by-state insurrection, it is a powerful statement of disaffection. It says loudly that marijuana is the people’s business in the same way tax increases, spending cuts, and guns are. There is also other evidence that a populist push can take on the toughest, most complicated issues. The concept of “mass incarceration” has moved out of the specialized lexicon of left-leaning academics and into the mainstream. With that has come a growing awareness, and, for some, deep concern, that the US leads the world in the rate at which nations imprison their own citizens. That, in turn, has forced many to confront the raw fact that incarceration rates for minorities are more than seven times that of whites. This may turn out to be the first time since the Attica aftermath that the clash of criminal and social justice has come under such wide public scrutiny. Intolerance for the idea that the cure for crime can have toxic side effects, just as our Second Amendment rights may, is

How could candidates who sat through a string of mass shootings avoid any mention of the problem of guns?” also behind the ongoing controversy over stop-and-frisk policies in New York City. There the issue is brought sharply into focus by the reality of urban violence and its devastating effects in poor, largely minority neighborhoods. It is mostly in those neighborhoods where police made nearly 700,000 stops in 2011. Ninety percent of the time, those stopped were black or Latino, and only two percent of the time were guns or other contraband seized. Opponents argue that those outcomes don’t justify the practice. Supporters say the neighborhoods want it; it is crime prevention that matters, not arrests; and on that, NYPD has led the nation. But increasingly the case is being made to look beyond both versions of the policeman’s view of the world. A human rights issue is being raised in which the exigency argument is itself biased – an unacceptable-under-any-circumstances compromise applied only in poor neighborhoods. If the public dialogue can handle that issue, there is certainly room for a vision beyond the narrowest interpretation of the Second Amendment. So optimism in the wake of Sandy Hook need not grow only out of the need for psychological comfort. It does not take a leap of faith to be optimistic. Perhaps electoral politics do not show a way forward, but we have done it before, and we have continued to demonstrate our ability to deal with the most complex and difficult questions. Guns cannot be the American exception to sensibility and reason.

New owner for power plant

EDUCATION | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

Kodak has found a buyer for the utility system at Eastman Business Park, and as a result, the park’s dedicated power plant will get upgrades. Recycled Energy Development has agreed to buy the park’s utility system for $10 million, according to a press release issued by Kodak. RED will also operate the system. In addition to the power plant and electric system, the utilities include steam, compressed air, refrigeration, wastewater treatment, and nitrogen. The park’s power plant is an attractive asset for some businesses, but it needs costly upgrades to meet looming state and federal emissions standards. Officials have been working behind the scenes to find a way to make the upgrades.

Kodak spokesperson Christopher Veronda says government officials will remain involved in the deal. The sale requires the approval of the state Public Service Commission, which regulates utilities. Veronda says Kodak’s bankruptcy case should not affect the sale. As part of the deal, Recycled Energy Development will invest $40 million to $80 million to convert the coal-fired power plant to natural gas. “This will increase the cogeneration system’s efficiency, allowing us to continue to supply reliable and economical utilities services to the 37 tenants at Eastman Business Park, along with Kodak,” said Sean Casten, Recycled Energy Development CEO, in a press release.

Several years ago, students staged a mini revolt over the food they were being served in the Rochester school district. To prove their point, they brought a hamburger from a district cafeteria to a school board meeting, but couldn’t find a board member willing to take a bite. The district subsequently began an ambitious effort to improve the quality, nutritional value, and taste of the food it serves. There are five components to each meal, says Jerome Underwood, the district’s senior director of operations: grain, protein, fruit, vegetables, and milk. Students have to pick at least three, and one has to be a fruit or a vegetable.

The district partners with Wegmans, through a federal grant, to provide students with more choices of fresh fruits and vegetables. Many students may not get berries, melon, and kiwi at home, Underwood says, because of the cost. And the district has just received a farm-to-school teaching and learning grant that will allow students to grow and harvest some of their own vegetables. But some of the biggest nutritional improvements have also been a bit of a challenge for students and teachers, Underwood says. For example, the

district replaced white bread and pasta with healthier whole wheat versions. “A lot of kids were not used to seeing pizza with whole wheat crust or brown pasta,” Underwood says. Vending machines, including those in central office, are no longer stocked with sugary soda drinks, candy, and pastries. Students also tour the district’s central kitchen and participate in menu planning. From an operational standpoint, the district’s food services department is an extraordinary undertaking. The

An incident involving a Brockport teen has multiple flash points: threats of violence, racism, and social media. And they’ve come together in a confusing and heated series of events. Earlier this month, Greece police charged Nicholas Robare, 18, with aggravated harassment. Robare, who is white, allegedly posted a disturbing video to the Facebook page belonging to Alex Hare, 16, of Brockport. The video, which shows a hoodie being burned, contains racial slurs directed at Hare, who is African American. Though Robare was the only person charged with a crime, the voices of two males and one female can be heard on the video. “This is the remains of your hoodie, you fucking nigger,” one of the voices says. Hare is taunted for not meeting to fight. “Next time it won’t be a hoodie,” a voice says. “Next time it will be your fucking face.” The racial slurs are offensive, but that alone doesn’t constitute a crime, says Captain Patrick Phelan, a spokesperson for the Greece Police Department. Threatening or harassing someone through electronic media is criminal, however, Phelan says

The section of Route 31 extending from Brockport to Albion traverses relatively flat land, with occasional dips and rises. But the topography changes at the Murray-Albion town line. There, on the near horizon at the back of a farmer’s field, a hill rises to just above the tree tops. But this is not a natural hill; it’s a landfill. The Orleans Sanitary Landfill has been closed since 1993, approximately the same time its owner declared bankruptcy. For Albion residents and government officials, the site has been an on and off source of controversy. And right now, with a proposal to build a new landfill on the site, the controversy is definitely on. In 2003, the Albion Town Board rejected Waste Management’s request for a local permit to build a new landfill at the site. The company pursued the expansion for several years, actually receiving a state permit to open and operate the proposed landfill. The permit is valid through November 2013. The public and local officials were strongly opposed, however, and after state courts upheld the Town Board’s denial, many residents hoped that would be the last attempt to open a new landfill in Albion. Enter Richard Penfold, former owner of a landfill and a waste-hauling business in the Buffalo area. Penfold wants to open a new landfill on unused portions of the 204-acre site of the Orleans Sanitary Landfill. To do that, he needs four out of the five Albion Town Board members to vote to overturn a town law banning new landfills as well as expansions of existing ones. But in public comments, at least one town board member, as well as town Supervisor Dennis Stirk, said they don’t support overturning the ban. Penfold is trying to get town officials to discuss a host community agreement. Typically, the agreements specify operating conditions for the landfill while providing substantial payments to the local government, in some cases enough to eliminate property taxes. Penfold has spent $67,000 paying back and current taxes for the Orleans Sanitary Landfill. He also has an agreement with the current owner giving him the option to purchase the site as long as he keeps paying the taxes. He says an operating landfill would be a benefit for Albion by providing jobs and revenue. “You have to get past the point that landfills are pollution centers,” Penfold says. “They’re not pollution centers. In all the [communities] that have them, they’re actually income centers.” In October, Penfold began pitching his proposal to the Albion community. Since then, opponents have mobilized. Anti-landfill signs dot front yards along Route 31, and the antilandfill citizens group, Stop Polluting Orleans County, is pressuring town officials to keep the ban. The organization formed in the 1980’s and has been a consistent presence in the town since.

DECEMBER 26, 2012 - JANUARY 1, 2013

The Town Board’s 2003 rejection of Waste

Management’s proposed landfill was the result of a political long-game by Albion residents. Kim Remley, chair of SPOC, served on the town Republican committee in the mid1990’s. It was at those committee meetings that she first heard talk about Waste Management’s plans for a new landfill, so she and other committee members began organizing primaries against pro-landfill Town Board members. They won a majority of seats on the board and in 1996, the Town Board moved to block the Waste Management proposal. (Eventually, the town adopted zoning laws prohibiting landfills.) Waste Management sued, though town officials settled the matter by promising to give a fair review of the company’s local permit application. When the board rejected the company’s application, Waste Management sued again, but the town prevailed in court. Many residents still object to the idea of an

active landfill in Albion, SPOC’s Remley says. Traffic was always a big concern. When Albion Central School District officials analyzed the previous Waste Management expansion proposal, they concluded that hundreds of landfill-bound trucks would have driven past the district’s campus on Route 31 each day. (Penfold says he’s open to negotiating the daily solid waste intake with the town.) Remley says that she and other residents are also concerned that the landfill could take in Marcellus Shale cuttings. The state doesn’t bar landfills from accepting the cuttings, which are considered industrial nonhazardous waste. On his website, Penfold says the landfill won’t take the cuttings. The landfill is also positioned next to the Erie Canal, and opponents say that an operational landfill conflicts with state and local efforts to emphasize the canal as a recreational and historic asset. The Orleans Sanitary Landfill has another

complication, which Penfold stresses as part of his pitch. It’s what’s known as an orphan: a landfill with no one to take care of it. Until 2009, Orleans Sanitary Landfill was being maintained through a dedicated post-closure fund. But the fund ran out of money and maintenance of the landfill has

languished. That means that leachate, which typically would be hauled off-site on a regular basis, has built up for several years. The liquid could eventually begin leaking out of the landfill. In an extreme case, it might burst out of the landfill’s side. (The DEC does periodic visual inspections of the site.) The landfill’s status highlights a bigger issue: the state and federal governments do not have funding to maintain orphan landfills, unless the landfill contains hazardous waste or is contaminating water supplies. Penfold frames his proposal as a way to take care of the maintenance. If the town lets him open his landfill, he’ll assume the maintenance of the existing landfill and, he says, turn a liability into an asset. Some county officials have proposed another idea: they say the leachate from both the Albion landfill and the neighboring McKenna landfill — a state Superfund site — could be piped to the Village of Albion’s wastewater treatment plant. The state is looking into the idea, says Don Allport, an at-large Orleans County legislator. Remley says reopening the landfill shouldn’t be the community’s only option. State officials ought to be prepared to step in to care for orphan landfills, she says, before they become environmental and public-health problems. SPOC’s current focus is making sure the Town Board preserves the existing ban. But Remley says it’s clear that Albion residents have to be careful about who they elect to future town boards. And she says she’ll always ask about a candidate’s position on landfills in the town before anything else.

RCSD serves about 40,000 meals daily throughout the school year, making it the largest daily provider of meals in the county. And number is expected to increase, Underwood says. “The main reason we’re up is that kids are actually eating the food,” Underwood says. “The fact is free food doesn’t increase consumption. Better quality drives consumption.” All city students now fall under the federal government’s eligibility guidelines for free meals due to poverty. “Probably the main meals they’re getting that day are served here,” Underwood says. “What we’re doing is really, really crucial for students and their families.” Underwood says the district still has some problems with food service, including logistics. Most of the district’s

high schools have fully functional kitchens for food preparation. But most of the elementary schools were built without kitchens, so the food is prepared in the district’s central kitchen and then distributed. The elementary schools will eventually get their own kitchens, but it could take as long as 10 years. The kitchen installations are part of the district’s massive, 10-year facilities modernization program. Critics also question the partnerships between large school districts and food service giants like Aramark, since the students can be a captive audience. Aramark is the district’s food service contractor. But Underwood dismisses those concerns. A big company like Aramark has purchasing advantages the district doesn’t have, he says.

Dining

The meat and the bones Grinnell’s 1696 Monroe Ave. 244-3710, grinnellsrestaurant.com Monday-Thursday 5-10 p.m., Friday-Saturday 5-11 p.m., Sunday 4:30-9 p.m. [ review ] by JAMES LEACH

In the world of restaurants, a place is “old” when it manages to last a decade. At 20 years, people start calling it an “institution.” At 30, the word “beloved” is often bandied about. Almost no restaurant survives to the half-century mark, and those few that do have more often than not long since abandoned their original concept, and their original owners for that matter. Normally, a 50-year-old restaurant would be unrecognizable to diners who ate there when the restaurant was new. Grinnell’s on Monroe Avenue is the exception that proves that rule. At 51 years old, Grinnell’s is still very much the restaurant that it was when brothers Al and Fred Grinnell opened it in 1961. Sure, the place is bigger than it originally was, and the interior has had a few updates (the most recent was about a year ago). There are even a couple of flat-screen TVs above the bar. But as Al’s son David Grinnell (who has owned the place with his cousin Rick DeMetri since 1979) will tell you, “the meat and bones” of the original restaurant are still there. Here, lamb chops are still served with mint jelly, pork chops come with a side of apple sauce, and the vegetables are really just garnish on plates full of meat. Grinnell’s is a chophouse of the old school, a throwback to the days

just before those pesky French guys arrived in New York with their nouvelle cuisine — a place to indulge in strong drinks and steaks in an approximate two or three to one ratio. No dinner at Grinnell’s starts without at least

one cocktail. Martinis, manhattans, maybe a couple of collinses, and glasses of wine are about the extent of what the bar offers, and the bartenders pour with a very generous hand. The gin and tonic I ordered to sip while I looked at the menu on my first visit was so strong that I wondered if the bartender had simply held the tonic tap next to the glass before sending the drink out rather than putting any in it. The same was true for other drinks I had on my second visit. Given how strong the drinks are, it’s perhaps a good thing that you could order at Grinnell’s without ever looking at the menu. Steaks and chops (pork and lamb) are the centerpiece of the menu with chicken and veal — served both French and marsala style — playing a supporting role. The appetizers are equally old school: shrimp cocktail, broiled shrimp scampi, artichokes French, beans and greens, and stuffed mushrooms, along with soup du jour, and a small selection of salads. On my first visit, I was initially unaware that my spinach salad — nice emerald leaves tossed with food-service croutons heaped attractively on the plate and drizzled with a warm bacon dressing ($3 as a side, plus $1.75 for warm bacon vinaigrette) — was going to be the high point of my meal. The salad was wonderfully fresh, and the dressing was just hot enough to wilt the leaves without leaving them soggy.

I used a piece of the restaurant’s signature garlic bread, which had no discernible garlic taste, to mop the plate. Casting a wide net, I ordered the mixed grill: a lamb chop (ordered medium rare), a pork chop (medium), and a grilled Italian sausage with Lyonnaise potatoes ($24.95). My companion requested veal French with a baked potato ($18.95). No one could ever fault Grinnell’s for its portion sizes. My mixed grill overwhelmed my plate, pushing the tiny serving of green beans, wax beans, and carrots so far over to the edge of the plate that I didn’t even see them at first. The lamb chop was fully 1.5” thick with a very pleasant looking char on the surface. It was, unfortunately, cooked well past medium with almost no pink (and no juice) left in it at all. Still, sliced thin with a dab of mint jelly it wasn’t half bad. The pork chop, though, was almost inedible, even with a generous bit of applesauce to rehydrate each desiccated bite. The sausage, with its faint fennel and crushed red pepper zing, had a good flavor and the skin had been expertly cooked to the point of crispness without splitting open, thus retaining the juice inside the sausage rather than spilling it over the fire. My companion’s veal French was equally disappointing, the veal paper thin but still somehow a bit tough, the eggbatter coating sliding off of each piece rather than cleaving to the meat as it should have. The sauce, however, was very pleasant, even fragrant, with lemon and butter tied together with white wine. On my second visit, thinking that Grinnell’s

could be the sort of place where a couple guys could go drink manhattans and toss back a big ol’ steak, I opted to sit at the bar. I enjoyed my first gin and tonic with a plate of mushrooms stuffed with Italian sausage and breadcrumbs and then broiled ($6.95) — a nice savory, meaty counterpoint to a strong cocktail. My companion and I ordered strip steaks, one rare, the other medium rare, both with baked potatoes ($27.95). Calling either steak medium on delivery would be generous. Bloodless and tough, my steak was shot through with strings of gristle. I ate only 6 oz. or so of the 14 ounces of meat, turning my attention to the perfectly baked potato it was situated next to on the plate. It seems odd to call attention to the starch, but the art of baking potatoes has largely been lost in the microwave age. A properly baked potato acquires an almost papery thin, pleasantly earthy skin with the flesh underneath rendered sweet and fluffy — positively aching for butter and sour cream, which Grinnell’s thoughtfully provided lots of. I probably shouldn’t be eating so much meat anyway.

Can the dead breathe in space? [ review ] by WILLIE CLARK

Though Friday may have been one of the first snow-flurry-filled nights of Rochester’s winter season, inside Monty’s Krown the musical temperature was anything but low. RoarShark opened up the night with a set of surefire surf rock, filled with that genre-defining wet, splashy reverb and tonal riffs that call to mind everything great about the beach (waves, babes, and sunny days) without forcing you to actually go there and deal with the sand and seaweed. The group forgoes a singer (except for a few screams here and there); this is a guitar world, and by God the guitars are going to rule it. Normally when a band goes without a singer I find that it’s hard to latch on to a specific sound, but RoarShark’s licks were meaty enough to sink your teeth into. The group’s dual lead guitar/bass guitar solo lines easily filled the spotlight. Then it was the Moon Zombies’ turn to rise and take the stage. This group is funk, funk, funky, but with a heavier and solidified rock architecture that makes it a little louder and fiercer than you might expect from a funk band. The group shifted from one planetary genre to the next, sampling some

straight-up ska-skank tunes (Reel Big Fish’s “Beer” was in there), to rhythmic and soulful systems, and even to heavier rock explosions. Most of the flow was seamless, but there was still a little disconnect from song-to-song with so much genre shifting — some people may find the band’s grabbing of so many sounds divisive rather than inclusive. The keyboard managed to tie things together a bit, but tended to get a little lost in the more rock-laden pieces. The band shied away a bit, especially vocally, on some of the songs where it seemed a little unsure of itself. But boy, when the group was on, it was firing all cylinders. It created a totally different vibe when it let loose, like on the closer for the roughly two-hour-long set, “Zombie Dance.” The world may not have ended on Friday night — too bad, Mayans! — but if there were any dead people in the room, I’m pretty sure even they made it up on their feet for the last dance. And since the undead never really die, Moon Zombie has time to continue to flesh out and trim the fat from its set, making everything all the juicier for the living, the dancing, and the dead.

Rubblebucket’s un-quiet riot

[ PROFILE ] By Frank De Blase

It’s a creative process that Toth sums up esoterically: “Synapses into little idea bursts, sending executive orders to the brain to press an instrument’s keys, or sing or just visualize music. Maybe you play around with it for a while and then you do your best to capture it.” his is probably most evident in the

ace it — there’s no pure rock ’n’ roll anymore. But it could be argued that there never was any in the first place; that the genre was the bastard offspring of mismatched parents looking for kicks in the backseat of America. Even the purest forms of rock music, by anyone’s definition, are mash-ups or halfbreeds at best. But if you insist on seeking out some semblance of purity, you have to look to bands that adhere to rock’s attitude and non-conformity. Modern bands that may not immediately fit your definition of “rock,” but which sprang and continue to spring from the loins of the music’s seminal rebellion. Brooklyn-based Rubblebucket is a frenzied eight-piece phenomenon of pure rock ’n’ roll, and a perfect example of what I’m going on about. Its influences are diverse, its lineage is deep, and its sound — a combination of bass, guitar, drums, B-3 organ, horns, percussion — is epic. The band’s polyrhythmic world-beat thunder and wailing wall of soulful brass is countered by elements of New Wave (to be exact, 17 percent of the sound is New Wave, according to bandleader and horn player Alex Toth), synth-pop, and funk. It’s all topped off with a vibrant vocal quirk and an element of unconventional indie-pop sweet and sour, resulting in a band of remarkably impure purity and a uniquely indefinable sound.

“Not to be cheeky,” says singer/ saxophonist Kalmia Traver, “but we don’t really call our style anything. We don’t walk around discussing what our sound is.” Toth doesn’t cop to what Rubblebucket’s sound is either, but is willing to shed a little light as to what the members do to arrive at it. “It’s a dangerous world to be too articulate at this stage of the game,” he says. “What’s the saying, ‘Like dancing about architecture?’ I will say that if I have a straight soul or rock song or pop song in front of me, I think, ‘How can I fuck this up a little?’ But usually it isn’t that simple.” ubblebucket’s dynamics, though conventional to this mortal coil, are

ensconced in arrangements that are about as focused as a 5-year-old with ADD and a box full of chocolate crayons. Forget lines; Rubblebucket frequently colors outside the pages. Born in Burlington, Vermont in 2007, the band’s chemistry was immediate — to the band, originally known as Rubblebucket Orchestra, as well as to audiences. By 2009 it had established itself throughout the Northeast and Midwest, and was earning nods from national press like Relix and SPIN magazines. Rubblebucket has since gone on to accolades from more big-time rags

12 City DECEMBER 26, 2012 - JANUARY 1, 2013

like Rolling Stone and Paste, as well as the independent media of the towns du jour. Not bad for a band that considers itself still somewhat larval. “With art and music, it’s always a work in progress,” says Toth. “If you knew how it was going to sound before you thought of it or started working on it, there would be no point. It’s a constant search for poetry, answers, sounds, and dance beats in life, I guess.” Toth and Traver are both collegeeducated musicians — they can read the dots — which flies in the face of Rubblebucket’s impish joy and attitude. The band supersedes convention in spades…or, well, buckets. “It’s real fun to try and break the rules,” says Traver. “That’s what rules are for. I don’t really try, I just follow my ears a lot and, I don’t know… That can lead me down bad roads, too. But if it sounds good and I’m enjoying it…I think across the board it’s danceable music, or music you want to move your body to. And it’s harmonically exploratory, thinking outside 1-4-5.” “Writing music is a lot of fun,” says Toth. “Sometimes you get stuck and it can be frustrating, but I feel absolutely grateful for having the opportunity to do what we do. If something’s messed up but it sounds cool, then it’s ‘right.’ Right is right even if it’s left or messed.”

band’s live show, as it plays before the swirling throngs Rubblebucket draws night after night. Live, though the songs are already written, a spontaneity still prevails. The result is music that is tight but not torqued, polished but with a patina that persists. The driving rhythms drive the whole affair while still leaving room for the more gentle lilt of the band’s melodic textures. “We started out being into funky, Afro beat, sprawled-out jams,” Traver says. “We’ve gotten a lot more into writing songs with pop-music structures and rock ’n’ roll textures. We’ve started writing more ‘song’ songs. But it’s still the same in a lot of ways. I think that we’re just trying to express ourselves more and more and we’re evolving. I know more about rock ’n’ roll than I ever did.” Early 2013 will provide some down time for the band to hit the studio and squeeze out another album. This will be No. 6 — an impressive feat for a band with an exhausting tour schedule that hinders uninterrupted stretches in the studio to a certain degree. Traver can’t wait. “We’re going into a period of writing and recording, which we’re really excited about,” she says. “We haven’t had pure time off to be creative. We have a bunch of new songs we haven’t been playing. We haven’t really had time away from the road.” Rubblebucket wraps up its touring insanity with its Rochester show this weekend. It won’t be the first time the band has had the chance to drive Rochester fans bananas. “Lovely people,” Toth says of our local crowds. “Screaming, singing, dancing, freaking. We love Rochester so much.”

ALTERNATIVE/FOLK | Mr. Boneless

What I remember from my undergraduate days at Fredonia State University is limited to the approximate number of gin mills, watering holes, bootie bars, and what-have-you in a one-block radius of the campus — the total being somewhere around a dozen. Mr. Boneless, and the band’s collection of freaky folk songs, is right at home in any of these joints. Literally. This foursome met in the summer of 2010 in this small college town west of Buffalo and began to bludgeon the ears of unsuspecting house-party-goers. The band is heavily influenced by the likes of Tom Waits, The Misfits, Neil Young, and the Pixies, leaving the group’s sound to generally fall somewhere between punk and folk, with an alternative, bluesy edge. A penchant for the intriguing and unexpected transitions makes for impulsive and adventurous live performances.

ALTERNATIVE | The World is Already Over Show

CLASSICAL | Baroque Organ Concert

It’s time to reset your doomsday clock and squeeze in a preNew Year’s Eve bash that features four epic bands. The Absolutes (pictured) is a young group with an old soul. I mean that in a good way. The quartet has 60’s garage rock down pat and is a comfortable fit among like-minded bands. Guitarand-drum duo Routine Involvements stays loose and focused at the same time. The group has been compared to the White Stripes and the Black Keys, but I hear some Pavement and Nirvana, too. The Ginger Faye Bakers create intense and hypnotic songs on digital album “Feast” by blending equal amounts of power and melody. Grunge quartet Anchorage Nebraska is gaining traction like a big-load pick-up with snow tires. Lead singer/guitarist Dusty West and company are rock ‘n’ roll lifers and the road goes on forever.

Every Sunday afternoon during the school year, a student from the Eastman School of Music gives a 25-minute presentation and mini-recital on the Italian Baroque organ at the Memorial Art Gallery. On December 30, organ graduate student Anne (Cheuk Bun) Lam will perform. Lam graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a bachelor’s degree in music, and was awarded her master’s degree of music from ESM. She has garnered several prizes at organ competition. Lam is the current music director at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church (Fairport) and organist of St. Joseph’s Church (Rush).

abstraction of geometry and abstraction of rule of perspective to create work that speaks to a duality,” he says. “We both embrace chaos as aggressively as we can, but from opposite angles,” says Maurer of the works produced by himself and by Dugan. But while Maurer’s chaosseeking work is tight, Dugan is a chaoticist seeking the essential forms within the disorder, whose stark works contain a certain debased, brokendown decadence, imbued with abstract philosophy and yearning. “I’ve been focusing a lot on

Art and history in East Rochester “Lost Infinity” Works by Brett Maurer and Matthew Tully Dugan Through January 11 Art and Vintage on Main, 101 E. Main St., East Rochester 348-9017, artandvintageonmain.com Wednesday-Saturday noon-7 p.m., and First Fridays [ REVIEW ] by Rebecca Rafferty

The trains that thunder by every dozen or so minutes just a few yards from the oldest standing building in East Rochester are part of the history of the place, which was originally a boarding house off the railroad tracks. The space houses East Rochester’s young gallery, Art and Vintage on Main, which is managed by Rosa Arnone, who seeks to make the space into a kind of “mini Hungerford” in the suburbs. The gallery is currently exhibiting its fourth show, featuring young local artists Matthew Tully Dugan and Brett Maurer. Arnone is a Pittsford native who attended school in south Florida and RIT. When Arnone’s family bought the building in East Rochester about a decade ago, her artist mother intended to renovate the place into an artists’ space, but day jobs got in the way, Arnone says. The family worked together on renovations for 10 years while renting it

out to small businesses, but in January 2012, Arnone decided to move forward with the art-space plans. In March, Arnone left her corporate job to manage the space full time, and opened the gallery on June 23 with a show featuring 23 local artists. The two featured artists in the current

show have worked together for about three years, and have shown work at AVoM from the start. Brett Maurer is a graphic designer and RIT graduate. His works in this show range in style from mixed-media collages to a series of stylized ink renderings that show off his illustration skills. “Denmark Sunset” is a large piece of vibrantly hued fabric hung on the wall, a relic from Maurer’s time studying abroad and designing textiles at Marimekko, a Finnish factory favored by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, who commissioned seven dresses from it. Maurer’s independent artistic interests include pursuing a “system of distilling things down, like a cubist,” he says. A series of abstract works in the show were created by taking photos while jogging, simplifying the striated, blurry, “nondescript landscapes down into rigid geometric shapes,” he says, and painting those in acrylic. Maurer adheres to the golden ratio in his breakdown of spatial quadrants, but uses angular perspectives in order to confuse the eye. “I try to use

16 City december 26, 2012 - january 1, 2013

appropriation of artworks that have influenced me the most,” says Matthew Tully Dugan. Each work in this show seeks to explore the essence of various artists he respects. One piece, inspired by Matthew Barney, is a plastic garbage bag pulled over stretcher bars, the diamond texture of the reinforced plastic made more evident by coats of white acrylic paint. Slits open to the wall where Dugan has slashed through the makeshift canvas, and the work resembles snakeskin, like something violently shed. Each piece shows off Dugan’s raw way of working with fine and basic materials. Another work, inspired by James Lee Byars, is a massive canvas covered in squares of gold leaf, corners or quadrants overlapping and peeling up. A large pine panel painted with matte black paint has been covered with an indecipherable, manically scripted pattern in chalk, and is a nod to the late Cy Twombly’s drawings. A stack of pages with a type-written poem by Dugan, set on a low bench, is a tribute to Felix Gonzalez-Torres’ minimalist stacks of paper, which deplete as viewers take pieces of the sculpture away. A shattered window suspended from the ceiling alludes to Duchamp, the clear-painted word “MESSIAH” visible, backward, as a shadow on the wall. Dugan has been using this word to sign his work recently, he says, in reaction to the Platonic school’s dismissal of artists as merely grasping at the forms. Artists seek the essence of things and aim to produce it in a material way, says Dugan.

On Saturday, December 29, at 10:30 a.m. Nia instructor Jane Pagano will host “Dancing 4 Walls” to raise funds and awareness for the 4 Walls Project/Proyecto 4 Paredes at the Tango Café Dance Studio (389 Gregory St.). In 2008 Bonnie Yannie and Meghan Haslan founded the organization, and have since built more than 50 homes in Rochester’s sister city of El Sauce, Nicaragua. This winter Yannie will return to the city for the sixth time to spend six weeks building homes. The hour-long Nia class will draw on martial arts, dance arts, and healing arts all to the sounds of soul-stirring music to connect body, mind, emotions, and spirit. The event is pay-what-you-will, and 100 percent of proceeds will go toward building materials.

KIDS EVENTS | School Break Activities

With no classes, homework, or teachers in sight for a week due to holiday break, children will be looking for things to do. This break be sure to explore all the exciting activities local organizations have to offer. Though they won’t be doing arithmetic problems or writing essays, children can still exercise their brain power while having fun at Seneca Park Zoo’s “Book and Beast” on Wednesday, December 26. At 11 a.m. in the Z.O.T. Zone, join the zoo to read a book and meet an animal from the animal collection. Free with zoo admission, $5-$10. 2222 St. Paul St. For more information on the zoo, including additional schoolbreak activities, visit senecaparkzoo.org. Stay active at the National Museum of Play’s “Let’s Move! School Break Week.” Through Monday, December 31, kids can become mountaineers on the climbing wall, move to the beat on “Dance Dance Revolution,” or climb, crawl, and jump through rainforest environments in the “Dora & Diego” exhibit. These activities are presented as a collaboration with the “Let’s Move! Museums and Gardens Initiative” launched by First Lady Michelle Obama and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The museum is located at 1 Manhattan Square. Activities are included in general admission, $13. For more information and other events, visit museumofplay.org.

2013

N E W Y E A R ’S E V E G U I D E [ EVENTS ] COMPILED BY LILLIAN DICKERSON

In retrospect, 2012 was a pretty monumental year. Just within the past few months, we grappled with Superstorm Sandy, witnessed the reelection of the nation’s first African-American president, learned how to work it “gangnam style,” and managed to survive the Mayans’ predicted end of the world. For those of us still standing, I’d say we accomplished quite the feat. Going into 2013 you probably have a variety of resolutions to pursue. Lose weight, study more diligently, make time for family, volunteer, resist texting during a conversation, save the world one reusable bag at a time, etc. Sounds like a work-out to me, and we’ll get back to that topic next issue. But before you tackle another beastly year, give yourself a break and check out the events in our 2013 New Year’s Eve Guide. Whether you’re looking for a rager at which to let loose all that holiday stress, a chill place with good food and music, or somewhere to take the kids, there’s a lot going down on Monday, December 31, and you’ll find the highlights below. If we missed an event please add it to this article at rochestercitynewspaper.com.

RECREATION | Moonlight Snowshoe

If you’re looking for a little peace post-holiday madness, and could use a little exercise after the yuletide binge, join the guided Moonlight Snowshoe event, held at Helmer Nature Center (154 Pinegrove Ave., Irondequoit) on Friday, December 28, 7-9 p.m. The moon will be full and will light up the crystalline woods — provided that we have a winter wonderland at that point. This event is just for adults, and the cost to partake of the trek is $5 for members and $7 for the general public. The price includes snowshoe rental, basic instruction, and refreshments. If the weather doesn’t cooperate on the 28th, be sure to check out one of the walks on the nights of the full moon in January and February.

THEATER | “An Evening of Andrew Lloyd Webber”

In the realm of modern-day musical theater few have created as great an impact as Andrew Lloyd Webber. He touched our hearts with the tragic story of a deformed, reclusive musical genius in “The Phantom of the Opera,” stirred us to political action in “Evita,” and inspired us to follow our dreams in “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” He’s known for working with greats like Patti LuPone, Sarah Brightman, Michael Crawford, and more. Rochester audiences will have the opportunity to experience these shows and more at Blackfriars Theatre’s “An Evening of Andrew Lloyd Webber,” running Friday, December 28, through Monday, December 31. A sextet of talented local musical actors will perform some of Webber’s best-loved songs. Blackfriars Theatre is located at 795 E.

The better (not necessarily best) movies of 2012 [ YEAR IN REVIEW ] By George Grella

Gertrude Stein once said, “Remarks are not literature,” and I would add, opinion is not criticism. The best movies of 2012, those I believe possess genuine merit for a number of reasons, not coincidentally, are also the ones I personally liked — a fusion, I hope, of personal judgment and objective analysis. The brevity of the list results in part from the fact that most of the time, despite the reviewers’ romance with those dreadful “10 Best” lists, there simply are not 10 “best” films, whatever that may mean. Readers who believe that a review, like most reviews, should simply praise the product,

concluding with the easy shorthand of stars, numbers, letter grades, or smiley faces, and consequently think that I write too harshly of films, often ask me what kind of movies I like. Well, I like good movies, whether thrillers, horror flicks, gangster films, Westerns, “serious” dramas, or documentaries about the bumper alfalfa harvest on the banks of the Riga, narrated in the original Finno-Ugric. Not surprisingly, the cinema of 2012 consists of a mixed bag, a cornucopia of titles that trace the usual trajectory, with some excellent works, a number of lousy ones, and a vast middle area, with its own wide array from almost bad to almost good and everything in between. Two of the best movies of the year, though quite opposite in style and substance, involve some form of international intrigue, and both reflect in their own ways the heritage of the Cold War, demonstrating two distinctive approaches. “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy,” based on

a cause, a relationship — in a complex film that moves through layers of introspection and silence. Much simpler, the James Bond blockbuster “Skyfall” owes its origin to the same era as “Tinker, Tailor,” but launches its action with the familiar series of explosions, pursuits, stunts, and spectacular location shooting, a wildly different and totally incredible version of British intelligence work. Even though its conclusion was a matter of public record, another Cold War thriller, “Argo,” a fantastic story paradoxically based on actual events, maintained a remarkable level of tension and excitement; the sheer process of the daring rescue of some of the Iranian hostages in 1980 made for surprisingly compelling viewing and some instructive history. “Argo” also featured some terrific performances from its supporting cast, notably Alan Arkin and John Goodman. Although it did not achieve the critical and financial success it deserved, “The Cabin in the Woods” broke new ground in horror, basing its superficially simple story on a witty, complicated puzzle and providing a remarkable anthology of the genre along the way. It really should become a classic text in contemporary horror, up on the top shelf with “Nosferatu,” “Psycho,” “Night of the Living Dead,” and “I Dismember Mama” (just kidding on the last one). The usual end-of-the-year flood of Oscar hopefuls produced two important movies, both of them, coincidentally, set in the

19th century. Because of its significance, the historical accuracy of its subject, and the enduring timeliness of its protagonist and his cause, “Lincoln” will no doubt contend for a batch of awards, deserving just about every nomination, especially Tommy Lee Jones for his bravura performance as a dedicated Abolitionist. It matches its dark cinematography with a consistent underplaying, providing an impressive atmosphere of authenticity. Quite the opposite in its lush stylization, sometimes bordering on affectation, the 28th visualization of Tolstoy’s great “Anna Karenina” is surely the most beautiful adaptation of that novel and perhaps the most beautiful film of the year. The movie captures some of its epic sweep, its cultural context, and its romantic story of a grand passion, a doomed love, and a tragic consequence. It will also certainly win a number of nominations, especially for its unusual sets and brilliant cinematography. Finally and sadly, possibly the most ambitious movies of the year also proved most disappointing. Despite grand visions, elaborate sets, and daringly unusual concepts, neither “Prometheus” nor “Cloud Atlas” fulfilled the promise of their original premises, or even of their trailers, another instance of the distance between dream and reality, both the challenge and the joy of the cinema.

It’s one of those unfortunate but unavoidable facts of life that even the most responsible, mature, put-together adult can, in an instant, regress back into the role of petulant child when in the company of their parents for any extended period of time. It might take just a look, or a single judgmental comment, but inevitably, the fragile house of cards that is adulthood will come crashing down. This is a phenomenon that “The Guilt Trip” understands all too well. The new family-friendly comedy from director Anne Fletcher (“27 Dresses,” “The Proposal”) is about a son (a tame Seth Rogen) and his mother (a surprisingly well-cast Barbra Streisand) on a cross-country road trip together. As a result, the central mother/son relationship is welldefined and often relatable. Sadly, the movie built around that relationship is a shapeless, largely unfunny, mess. Struggling inventor Andrew (Rogen) has a secret motive when he

extends the invitation to his mother, Joyce, to accompany him on his drive from New Jersey to Las Vegas as he meets with various corporations to pitch them the new all-natural cleaning product he’s developed. Inspired by a conversation he has with his widowed mother, in which she reveals that before she met Andrew’s father she was deeply in love with another man, he decides to add an extra stop in San Francisco to try and reconnect his mother with her long-lost soul mate. As much as his overbearing mother may infuriate him, Andrew still loves her and doesn’t want her to spend the rest of her life alone. Though skeptical about why her son would voluntarily spend eight days with her in a car, Joyce jumps at the chance for some family bonding time. The odd couple set off on the road, and wacky-ish hijinks ensue as they fight, argue, and eventually learn from one another. While the film is sporadically amusing, it never revs itself up enough to reach the level of laughout-loud funny. Rogen and Streisand themselves are funny as a duo, and work together convincingly as mother and son. There’s a tenderness around the relationship at the film’s core that remains likeable. But it’s worth noting that I laughed more during the clips that run over the film’s end credits, where the two actors ad-lib and play off of one another, than at any exchange that made its way into the finished film. Rogen works well as the mildmannered straight man of the film, apparently having no qualms about ceding most of the spotlight to his costar. The film’s screenplay is credited

to Dan Fogelman (“Crazy, Stupid, Love”), supposedly based a real-life road trip he took with his mother, but I couldn’t help wondering what this pair of actors would have done with a snappier, wittier script. There’s too much time spent setting up situations — a stop at a strip club; Joyce deciding to enter a food challenge; gambling in Vegas — and most fail to provide any sort of payoff. One compliment I can pay it is that there isn’t too much of a reliance on the Jewish mother schtick. It’s there, to be sure, but it’s not overdone so that it grows obnoxious. The talents of the cast are also ill-served by Fletcher’s flat, bland direction; her previous box-office hits relied mostly on the charms of their stars (less so “27 Dresses,” I guess — I don’t know that there’s anyone who actually finds Katherine Heigl charming). I wish I knew who made up the rule that American comedies aren’t allowed to have any sort of style, so I could knock some sense into them. Still, the movie will likely be a hit, coming out during the season when families are looking for innocuous entertainment that won’t be painful for any single member to sit through. I suppose the movie meets the rather low bar it sets for itself in that, when I paid my mother a visit just after watching the film, I realized that I was kicking myself for not bringing her along to the movie with me. Instead I just told her that there was a movie out in theaters now that I thought she’d really enjoy.

Proudly serving the Rochester area.

Located in the Maplewood area, Clay Avenue is a quiet residential street that features houses constructed between the 1880s and 1920s. Just a short walk from Maplewood Park and Lake Avenue, this American Foursquare house at 248 Clay Avenue displays the pride of ownership so typical of homes in this northwest city neighborhood, much of which is listed in the State and National Registers of Historic Places. In 1911, when this house was built, the neighborhood featured some of Rochester’s most distinctive homes, as well as the scenic Genesee River gorge and the remarkable Seneca and Maplewood Parks, both designed by nationally renowned landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted.

Often described as “the most amount of house built for the least amount of money,” the American Foursquare home was a popular and practical design during the 1890s to 1930s. Thousands of these houses are found in Rochester and Monroe County neighborhoods that were developed during this time period, often along street trolley routes that extended from downtown out to the suburbs and beyond. Retaining all its early 20th-century design and architectural details, this charming house has received the best of care from its three owners over the past 100 years. It boasts hardwood floors throughout, extensive varnished woodwork, and the original walk-in pantry with chestnut cabinetry. The spacious front porch provides a place for summer relaxing and leads to the original front

door. In the foyer, the handsome main staircase includes an Arts-and-Crafts-inspired railing with square newel post and balusters. The light-filled living room to the left is entered through a pair of wood-and-glass French doors. The handsome dining room is enhanced by plaster-and-wood paneled walls, as well as a coffered ceiling. The eat-in kitchen features stainless steel counters and all modern appliances, as well as the walk-in pantry, whose extensive chestnut cabinets and drawers provide additional storage. Built in the early 20th century, the house seems much larger than its 1,332 square feet. This is due to its abundant natural light, pleasant layout, extra potential living space in the huge attic, and clean, dry basement. A generous second floor hallway opens to the three bedrooms, all of which retain their varnished woodwork. The original linen cupboard and drawers are located in the central hallway. The large master suite includes a dressing room and a large, walk-in closet. The three-season, enclosed sleeping porch overlooks the backyard, which features a pocket garden and two-car garage. This exceptional property is listed for $55,500 through Roy Tompkins, RE/MAX Realty Group, 748-0708.

FORECLOSURE OF TAX LIENS BY THE CITY OF ROCHESTER STATE OF NEW YORK SUPREME COURT COUNTY OF MONROE

IN THE MATTER OF THE FORECLOSURE OF TAX LIENS PURSUANT TO TITLE 4 OF PART E OF ARTICLE IX OF THE CHARTER OF THE CITY OF ROCHESTER.

LIST OF DELINQUENT TAXES AS OF JULY 1, 2012 PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that on December 12, 2012, the Corporation Counsel of the City of Rochester filed in the office of the Monroe County Clerk a list of parcels of property on which the City of Rochester holds a lien for taxes, assessments, fees or other charges which is at least one year old and which the City of Rochester intends to foreclose by an action in rem pursuant to Title 4 of Part E of Article IX of the Charter of the City of Rochester. A copy of that list was published on December 12, 2012. The foreclosure list contains as to each such parcel: 1. The tax account number and address; 2. The name of the last known owner; 3. The amount of each tax lien, except for a $155.00 charge which has been added to each tax lien pursuant to Section 9-123(A)(3)of the City Charter but which is not reflected on the printed list. All persons having an interest in the real property described in the foreclosure list are hereby notified that the filing of the list constitutes the commencement by the City of Rochester of an action in the Supreme Court, Monroe County, to foreclose the tax liens therein described by an action in rem and that the list constitutes a notice of pendency of action and a complaint by the City of Rochester against each parcel of land therein described to enforce the satisfaction of such tax liens. This action is brought against the real property only. No personal judgment will be entered in this action for the delinquent taxes, assessments, fees or other charges.

A copy of the foreclosure list has been filed in the office of the City Treasurer and will remain open for public inspection up to and including February 19, 2013, which is the redemption deadline date. Any person may on or before that date redeem any parcel on the foreclosure list by paying to the City Treasurer the amount of all delinquent taxes, assessments, fees and other charges stated on the foreclosure list, plus the $155.00 charge referred to above, plus accrued interest and late payment charges. Any person having any interest in any parcel on the foreclosure list may, at any time up to the redemption deadline date, serve a verified notice of interest or an answer upon the Corporation Counsel setting forth in detail the nature and amount of his interest or any defense or objection to the foreclosure. The notice of interest or answer must also be filed in the office of the Monroe County Clerk. Where a valid notice of interest is served, the parcel will be held for a foreclosure auction pursuant to Section 9-143 of the City Charter. Any person who fails to redeem or to serve a notice of interest or an answer by the redemption deadline date shall be barred thereafter from asserting his interest in the pending foreclosure action, and judgment in foreclosure may be granted without regard for, and in extinguishment of, the interest of any such person.
