Re: “VOTE NOW: Best of Rochester 2018 Primary Ballot

It is totally shitty that you never include bookstores but so many crappy salon categories, dopey frivolous stuff, etc.

Local bookstores:

1) Greenwood books
2) North Star books
3) Before Your Quiet Eyes
4) Small World books
5) Rick's Recycled books
6) Yesterday's Muse books - Webster
7) Mood Makers
8) Comics Etc.
9) Bartertown collectibles
10) Abacus bookstore - Pittsford
11) Books Etc. - Macedon

And many others locally.

No idea why you ignore bookstores in the Best of Roc thing every year. But it sucks. And you could really lend them and the community a hand by including them.

Re: “Ask a punk

Most rock music has always been fundamentally about rebellion. It seems like lamenting that punk music is dead is the same as lamenting that New Wave is dead or that disco is dead or that the Ramones are gone. Music and people keep evolving. Punk music came and went like a lot of other things. Its legacy is safe.

There's a lot of great rock and roll music still. As far as people in punk clothes, rock and roll and art don't require a uniform or leather or denim or gelled spikey hair. And it always seems like punks then & now often don't like being around anyone who isn't dressed like them. That just seems a little bit shallow and too exclusive. That kind of belongs mostly to a high school setting, to group according to threads and styles, to not want to be seen talking to someone "uncool".

Punk isn't dead. Nor is New Wave. Listen to it when you want to. Recordings are still there at Bop Shop, Needledrop, Hi-Fi Lounge, the Archive, HOG. No uniform required. And there's no shortage of good music in Rochester and beyond.

Re: “The year full of news about Donald Trump

In summation:

Trump is the predictable apotheosis of a world that knows only profiteering.
And that the Democrats squander every opportunity to improve the world when they have the reins should be noted.
Centrism, Mary Anna:
None of this is shocking or surprising at all.

Re: “Recap: CITY's top movies of 2017

Tour de force. In so many ways.

You have Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Last Jedi on the list. But not 3 Billboards. That's really odd.

Re: “Recap: CITY's top movies of 2017

No 3 Billboards on the list anywhere, Adam? Damn. Major omission.
