The Dude on the Right
Stu Gotz’s delay in getting back to the Chi-Town area after an RV-ing adventure
(complete with a trip to
Herkimer N.Y.) led
"Weekend Wrap-Up!" podcast being a day late, but even with an extra day of
preparation, I somehow manage to screw-up our opening. Oh well! We
don’t do a lot of movie talking, just a quick thought about
"Wanted" from me, some quick thoughts about
"Wall-E" from both of us, but the movie clip that actually had all of us
laughing, from Stu and Mama Gotz to the Little Gotz’s, and from myself to my BFF,
was the animated short, "Presto," that preceded "Wall-E," about a cute little
rabbit, just wanting to get fed, and a magical hat.
Stu did manage to catch up
on some of his Netflix viewing, loving "Letters from Iwo Jima," while I regale
Stu with my loving the new season of
"Penn & Teller: Bullshit,"
especially their take on "New Age Medicine," the magic of a kazoo, and I can’t
believe I forgot to tell Stu about the toilet plunger therapy and how Penn &
Teller seem to know their audience is a bunch of men because suddenly their
booby quotient is a lot higher than in past episodes. I do advise Stu that
now might be the time to get Sirius Satellite Radio, and no, not because of the
merger with XM, an approval decision that has so far lasted longer than it takes
for a baby to be conceived, born, and eating solid food, but because for a
couple of weeks they are going to have "ABBA Radio," all ABBA, 24/7, in
celebration of the upcoming
"Mamma Mia!" movie. We also have some tattoo and piercing talk, and as
I tell Stu to go and look for
there was a fight during the one of the latest Chicago White Sox/Chicago Cubs
Crosstown Classic games, and nope, it’s not about rival fans beating each other
up, but rather about joining together in the love.
And, go figure, Stu has
toilet paper issues.
That’s it for this one! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
