Love this article. I'm an avid motorcyclist (it is the main part of my identity as a human being), and am also a bicyclist - whenever I can't ride my motorcycle, I take my bicycle - and this is a fascinating look into a few strident bicyclists' lives. Very similar to a look into the lives of lifestyle-motorcyclists.
I'd have to say that Rochester's bicyclists, pedestrians, *and* motorcyclists are indeed treated as second-class citizens here. We need more accommodations and respect toward those 3 classes of commuters/people.
gt: We actually use New York Time style as the basis for our own house style, and it uses the apostrophe for dates.

Dates aren't possessive. 1850s is correct, 1850's is not.
Alex, how did I not know this? This is critical information.
Don't forget that H.P. Lovecraft, commonly considered the father of modern horror, has many paternal ancestors that were buried in Mt.Hope before the family moved to Rhode Island (his father was born and raised in Rochester).
Great article and event summary, Rebecca.
Swiveltam - I hope so. Because the dancing really was varied, plentiful and really terrific! If you like Lindy Hop, definitely check out http://groovejuiceswing.com/. The group offers lessons and free monthly events that are really a blast.
Sounds like an amazing buffet of dance. I would have loved to see the lindy and tap. I'm a big fan of lindy hop and wrote a fictional novel : girlinthejitterbugdress.com. Too bad it wasn't better organized, but perhaps they can build on this and next year make it better?
I was in attendance and I agree with the reviewer above. "Make'em Laugh & Make'em Cry" was a well-balanced suite of dances that delighted and moved everybody sitting in Kilbourn Hall Thursday night. A 2013 Fringe Festival highlight moment-- congrats to choreographer Anne Harris Wilcox and Present Tense Dance and Friends for putting on such a beautiful concert.
Great show..but..was anyone else put off by the comment early on by one of the performers about matters of "dubious veracity" or something along those lines: the moon landing, the economic recovery and.... The Holocaust?
Not only in bad taste and insensitive to say the least, there's enough falsehoods about a topic like this to add another layer of confusion.
Alan Frost: I checked the program from the show and it was indeed labelled as "Henry VI" by the Shakespeare Players. However, a quick Google search suggests that you're right, that scene was indeed from "Henry IV, Part 1." Thanks for pointing that out!
I'm so glad I went down to this event last night. The gang from CITY really pulled it off and the Speigelgarden was beautiful on a cold Fall night. I would have scored a Zero had I played, but drinking beer, eating crab cakes while snug and warm by the chiminea was the prefect way to enjoy the hilarity that ensued. Kudos
I think you meant to identify one of the Shakepeare plays as “Henry IV Part 1” not “Henry VI Part 1.” While Falstaff was still alive and appeared in Henry VI, young Prince Hal (aka, Henry V) was already dead and gone by that time.
Nuts and Bolts has it's own 60 minute show this friday night at RAPA at 9:30. you should come out to see the whole thing
Thanks, I appreciate the feedback! Sorry for the confusion, I talked to someone at the box office desk, which is where I've asked for information about shows in the past, Hence my reference to an "info desk."
The actors did a great job, I just thought it was a shame that no cast information was available at the theater during the festival. And yes, that was my understanding about the show, which is why I was perplexed by the response I received. It was a busy night, maybe I just caught the person at a bad moment. It happens.
Not sure who you talked to Adam since Geva doesn't have an "info desk" and we would not have said we aren't involved with the production since its actually a Geva show and will have its own run here after Fringe ( at which time I'm sure there will be programs with cast info). But glad you like it!
“One lasting effect of the actions of empires is that it can be difficult to locate the voices of the underdog, unmitigated by the interests of the victor. For this reason, it's critical that we support the endeavors of those who are the keepers of these arcane histories.:
Agreed ! But the application of this concept to the Seneca always seems to stop half way. We are asked to support efforts to collect and evaluate the Seneca’s side of their relationship with the Europeans, but never to do the same for the Seneca’s victims among their fellow Native Americans. Certainly the Senecas never ask that we listen for the “voices of the underdog” or look for the “arcane histories” when those underdogs
were the tribes attacked, decimated and driven off their traditional lands by the Senecas in their role as the assault troops for the Haudenosaune.
Could it be that hypocrisy, double standards and selective memory has worked to ensure that broken treaties and stolen land where the evil whites are the offending party is a more sympathetic role for the Seneca to play than that of blood stained aggressor?
For example, Where do we now hear the voices of the Hurons, Neutrals, and Eries? Great Lakes tribal confederacies attacked and in some cases destroyed with thousands killed or taken prisoner by the Seneca during the Beaver Wars of the mid -17th. Century? What efforts to resurrect the Ganondagans of those tribes are we being asked to participate in? What “history told by the survivors” is there when the Senecas made certain that there were no survivors?
It seems clear that while there was obviously effort put forth to write this article, it flowed smoothly as if the terminology and facets of the game were well understood. Just goes to show the nature of the sport in general.
