Joining the Occupy Movement, Not Joining the Illinois House, Joining Theater Goers, and Not Joining Fencebuilders.

As Halloween is here, with the help of an Occupy protester and Stu Gotz, I try to decide if I’m going to join the cause after this episode of our “Weekend Wrap-Up!” podcast. Maybe I should, especially since, as Stu says, I’ve joined the Pussification of America Army during my judging of a Halloween costume contest. To redeem myself I should have, at least, impersonated a member of the Illinois House of Representatives, but alas, I stuck to a bit of honesty when asked if I were Tom Cross. Stu, meanwhile, thinks he has found out how many workers it takes to put up a fence.

Neither of us saw the #1 movie at the box office, “Puss in Boots,” but Stu made it to the theater with Mama Gotz and thought “50/50″ was a decent flick. Me, however, I preferred the safety and security of the Dude-Pad, really liking “Captain America.” We both are still fans of “The Big Bang Theory” and “Beavis and Butthead,” Stu is a new fan of “Grimm,” Stu is excited because the McRib is back (for a limited time), and we both recommend backing up important pictures and hope Apple’s iCloud will also do the job for us because sometimes we can’t remember crap.

Joining things, not joining things, and more!

Excitiment is in the air for Stu Gotz and me during this “Weekend Wrap-Up!” podcast as we eagerly await the return of “Beavis and Butthead” this Thursday, and another Harold & Kumar movie in a couple of weeks! We also eagerly await the return of the TV season as a lot of shows are on hiatus for the World Series even though it’s having some of the worse ratings ever.

TV and baseball aside, Stu’s weekend was one filled with pumpkins and lacrosse, while I ate something called shawarma and liked it. Yup, The Gotz’s visited a fall festival farm, complete with pumpkin launcher, and I learned that his kids also play lacrosse, but not football. Me, thanks to my wife who likes to intruduce me to different foods, I tried this stuff called shawarma from a place called Naf Naf Grill, complete with fresh pitas, and I listened to most of the Chicago Bears trouncing of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (which is what you put under you Buccenhat), and yes, I know, it was pretty much just a victory, but it was fun to hear them win. I also spent my weekend contemplating the new changes coming to the Catholic Mass that is supposed to get us closer to God, or at least spent my weekend wondering why the church was making said changes.

Stu witnessed a stupid janitor that I thought was a genius, I had a great experience with a Genius at the Apple Store, Stu thought Bridesmaids could have been a little better, and I explain to Stu to expalin to Mama Gotz how to make sure she doesn’t miss a minute of “The Good Wife” with her DVR, as apposed to watching episodes online, that seem to be here even though Stu said he couldn’t find them.

Stu Gotz and I haven’t gotten together for a couple of weeks for a “Weekend Wrap-Up!” podcast, and maybe that’s why the swear words are a-flyin’. That, or maybe it’s just our way of trying to convince MTV that it’s finally time to really get edgy and not bleep out anything during the VMA’s. Yup, I give Stu my breakdown of wasting a few hours and watching the Video Music Awards, and yes, I did like Lady Gaga’s performance. Stu, meanwhile, has seen a couple of movies on DVD, namely “Cedar Rapids” and “Source Code,” and he gives his analysis. Both of us are looking forward to the return of “Beavis and Butthead,” although TiVo issues might be issues for both of us in maintaining our fix.

Stu is happy that “Doctor Who” is back on the air, I’m very handy, the tee pee is down for the season, and we don’t talk about the Chicago Bears because, well, it’s still preseason and no one really cares. And, oh yea, I like Skinnygirl Sangria. There, I said it.

Thanks for listening!

That’s a Lot of Rain, He Says His Wife is Smokin’ Hot, Who is Doctor Who, and Cars, Cars, and More Cars!

I’m becoming a mall walker, and Stu Gotz is becoming a “Doctor Who” nerd – It’s another “Weekend Wrap-Up!” podcast episode!

Yup, my weekend was pretty uneventful, as I did some analysis of Woodfield Mall here in Illinois, I cleaned my balls, and I wondered if I should change churches or start following NASCAR again thanks to the rousing Pastor Nelms getting the racers ready for a race over the weekend. And speaking of auto racing, Stu and Mama Gotz are quickly becoming demolition derby aficionados, if one can be a demolition derby aficionado, and on the same note, sort of, Stu breaks down “Cars 2” for everyone.

Neither of us saw “Captain America” yet although a lot of other people did, there were obscene amounts of rain over the weekend in the Chicago area and I was oblivious to it, Stu is building a tee pee, and both of us are looking forward to the return of “Beavis and Butthead” this fall, thanks to a reminder from Comic-Con. And hey, if things go well, I’ll also see “Cowboys and Aliens” this weekend, though I’m not holding my breath.

Thanks for listening!

Beavis and Butthead Do America

MPAA Rated – PG-13
It’s 1:20 Long
A Review by:
– Stu Gotz

Beavis and Butthead
Do America
Movie Stats & Links
Starring: The voices of Mike Judge, Robert Stack, Cloris Leachman, and what sounds like Demi Moore and Bruce Willis.
MPAA Rated: PG-13
Released By: Paramount Pictures
Kiddie Movie: I’m mature enough to understand these guys, the Three Stooges, and the old unedited Bugs Bunny, but I still don’t think Beavis and Butthead is cool for little kids.
Date Movie: You should be so lucky as to have a girl that likes Beavis and Butthead, and if she does, bring her out for this one.
Gratuitous Sex: Nope. Beavis and Butthead don’t score.
Gratuitous Violence: Car crashes, floods, Beavis being thrown from a car, and general mayhem.
Action: No, dammit. The boy’s don’t get any! Ohh… Action like in adventure? Sure. A little.
Laughs: Lots and lots.
Memorable Scene: Lot’s, but when the boy’s run into two former Motley Crew roadies who passed through Highland almost 16 years ago, “did it” with two sluts, and look remarkably like the boy’s, comes to mind. That or when Butthead makes a pass at Chelsea Clinton.
Memorable Quote: Again lot’s, but the dam, as in Hoover, jokes seem to stick out.
Directed By: Mike Judge

What is it about them that can, on a Friday 1:30pm showing, nearly fill an entire theater. About two thirds of the people were the type one would expect to show up, you know… The MTV generation, all those 16 year olds to the Twenty/Thirty Something’s. But the other third I could not explain nor did I expect to be there. What was with the business people dressed in suits? How about the mid-thirty’s moms and dads there with really small children? And lastly, what was with all the geritol’s? Could Beavis and Butt-head have charm and appeal to unite the generations? I would have never figured on that, I just thought they appealed to all us dysfunctional family bred slackers.

Before meeting the Dude on the Right at the show, I got to read the reviews in the papers. Most critics didn’t rate the movie too high and some other critics were just down right mean. What shallow minds? But let’s face it, you either like B&B, or you don’t. For you B&B fans out there I’m sure you’ve been waiting for this movie, and no matter what the critics say you’ll go out and see it. Good for you! Well let me add to your anticipation by saying this is one funny movie.

Beavis and Butt-head may be up to the same old shit, but it’s still funny. Be it inadvertently getting Anderson’s body cavity searched, to Van Dereasen’s ass kicked, or to Beavis spazzing out and becoming Cornholio. I laughed through it all. As we all already know Beavis and Butthead live for two things, TV and to someday “do it.” Well, when their TV is stolen, they set out to find it (sort of reminded me of Snoopy Come Home). As usual when the boys are out and about they get themselves in some trouble. This time they stumble across an arms dealer who mistakes them for hit men that he wants to hire to “do” his wife. He’s even willing to pay the boys to “do” his wife. Boy-o-boy have these guys hit the jackpot. Speaking of jackpots, it just so happens that the wife is out in Las Vegas (my favorite town next to Calgary). Herein comes the “Do America” part of the movie. Our friends head out to LV, but before they get to “do it” they get tricked by the wife into holding a secret weapon and taking a bus to Washington DC. Along the was they wreak havoc on Hoover dam (was it built by God thereby making it a “God dam?” Hey don’t get mad at me for that one. It was Beavis’ line). Then, amid the splendor of Old Faithful, they discover a cooler natural wonder – automatic flushing toilets. From there it’s taking confession at a Catholic mission, doing Peyote in the desert, and running amuck in the White House. At the finish, Anderson and not our heroes, gets it in the end, both literally and figuratively speaking. I could tell you more and with greater detail, but I don’t want to spoil all the fun for YOU.

“Beavis and Butt-head Do America” was all I expected it would be. Just plain, silly, and stupid fun. I would have like to have seen an appearance by Stuart and Buzz-Cut, but I guess I’ll have to wait for the next movie. “Next movie?” you say? Well I haven’t heard anything, but let’s face it, this movie should be big and make tons of money, and where there is money there is always a sequel. Look at the Police Squad, Star Trek, and Die Hard movies etc. And like good brain-washed lemmings I’m sure we’ll go out and see “Beavis and Butt-head Return,” “Beavis and Butt-head First Contact,” “Beavis and Butt-head – The College Years,” “Beavis and Butt-head Forever,” “Beavis and Butt-head – The Final Chapter,” “Beavis and Butt-head – One Last Time,” and so forth and so on. I liked “Beavis and Butt-head Do America” and I, without hesitation, recommend that if you’re already a B&B fan that you go out and see the movie.

I give “Beavis and Butt-head Do America” 3.5 stars out of 5 and I’m Stu Gotz. Penis. Aahhh, huh, huh, huh, huh… I said Penis.
