Nitrate at the Museum

May 6th, 2017 · Comments Off on Nitrate at the Museum

In part as a matter of convenience for FIAF Congress attendees, the third Nitrate Picture Show was scheduled right on the heels of FIAF L.A., so after a very brief return to New Haven, allowing enough time to surprise the girls and take Lucy to school, I headed to Rochester. Nothing like a six hour […]

Nitrate Picture Show

May 8th, 2015 · Comments Off on Nitrate Picture Show

The first Nitrate Picture Show was a good excuse to return to Rochester for the first time in seven years, now “only” a six-hour drive from New Haven. I drove with a couple of Film & Media Studies grad students also heading to the festival, and it wasn’t too bad. Rochester seemed the same as […]

40 Days until 40: Day 32, 2006

January 28th, 2015 · Comments Off on 40 Days until 40: Day 32, 2006

Not long after returning from the honeymoon, we moved to Rochester so I could begin school at the Eastman House. Rochester was a great place to spend our first year together: small, cheap, and full of plenty of stuff to do (for a year). We found a nice apartment on Park Ave., where I am […]

GB House 2010

November 28th, 2010 · Comments Off on GB House 2010

It’s that time of year again… We got the gingerbread house going yesterday, and ended up with a nice, understated approach that didn’t have any significant construction disasters (except for the the mistake of using multi-colored candy balls on the roof line, which required tweezers to remove and be replaced with red and green only). […]

50 States: New York (10)

May 10th, 2008 · Comments Off on 50 States: New York (10)

I was talking to Aimee last night about what I was going to write about New York, and she suggested I almost needed two entries for the state, one for the year when we lived in Rochester, and one for everything else, the fifteen years of visits to New York City. She’s right; New York […]

Lightening the load

December 4th, 2007 · Comments Off on Lightening the load

Goodbye, Wegmans card; I’m finally coming to terms with the fact that we don’t live within a few thousand miles of a Wegmans, and it’s time to ditch the keychain card. Same with the flimsy Amherst fob, which was some sort of gift I got at some point, but just takes up space. As for […]

Film history

October 4th, 2007 · Comments Off on Film history

The trip to Rochester was a nice break, and a good chance to catch up with old friends, but it was completely exhausting at the same time, and I’m glad to be back home. Sessions started at 8:30, which isn’t so bad, but when we were staying in a hotel in downtown Rochester and the […]

Back at GEH

September 29th, 2007 · Comments Off on Back at GEH

It’s been a lot of fun being back in Rochester this week for the AMIA conference, seeing old friends and colleagues and visiting the old haunts. A drink at the Old Toad, some BBQ and cajun corn at Sticky Lips, and some gelato at the GEH cafe – though that last one is a new […]

Saying our goodbyes

July 17th, 2006 · Comments Off on Saying our goodbyes

Never a dull moment here in moving-land… We returned from Los Angeles Wednesday night, and after a brief spurt of packing on Thursday, we headed to Boston to be with Aimee’s family for the weekend. Friday and Saturday were spent hanging out with the kids in Portsmouth, as well as with lots of family friends […]

The boxes that ate Park Ave.

June 30th, 2006 · Comments Off on The boxes that ate Park Ave.

It’s been a weird week here so far, rising early and packing all day, then trying to do something we’ve either waited all year to do, or wanted to do one last time before we left. We’ve got a pretty good handle on the stuff in the apartment, except for all of those last items […]

Another graduation

June 26th, 2006 · Comments Off on Another graduation

This weekend saw a busy whirlwind of activity, beginning on Thursday with the arrival of my parents and my introduction of a screening of The Lost Weekend on the 100th anniversary of the birth of Billy Wilder, which was a nice event. The next day, Aimee had her last day at work and we had […]

June 9th, 2006 · Comments Off on Developments…

It’s been awhile, once again, but it’s been a busy while. The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of job applications, interviews, and somewhat agonizing decisions. The net result of all of the phone calls, emails, pro/con lists, and heartfelt conversations with family and friends is that next month, we’re moving to Los Angeles. […]

Summer moves in

June 1st, 2006 · Comments Off on Summer moves in

It’s already/finally June, and our year in Rochester is swiftly coming to a close. Last week, I returned from my last trip of the year for school, an exciting week in Dayton, Ohio – maybe an overstatement – visiting the Library of Congress film facilities as well as the National Museum of the United States […]

Magnolia Week

May 6th, 2006 · Comments Off on Magnolia Week

The magnolia trees that line the center of Oxford Street near our apartment have blossomed and gone nearly bare again in the span of a week. They certainly were nice while they lasted, and brought out the photographers in droves. I was a little late in snapping my photo, but it gives some idea of […]

Something fishy

March 13th, 2006 · Comments Off on Something fishy

Or perhaps squirrelly, or something worse… The house is currently filled with the sound and vibration of walls and ceilings being sawn apart in search of the source of a smell which has gotten increasingly worse over the past four days. Last week, our downstairs neighbors asked us if we smelled anything funny, but we […]
