What's New? Stu & The Dude's Weekend Wrap-Up: "Miami Vice" and "John Tucker," It's Hot Out Here, and "What Time Does the Carnival Start?"

For this podcast of "Stu & The Dude's Weekend Wrap-Up," The Dude gives his take on "Miami Vice" and "John Tucker Must Die," Stu finally got to see "Clerks II," and it is really hot in Chicago lately which doesn't make a family trip to a carnival a good thing. The Dude is happy a song has reached #1 on Alt Nation - Sirius Satellite Radio Channel 21, and Stu is looking for a clean copy of "Beep Beep" by The Playmates. Songs sure are different between the days when "Beep Beep" was fun, and well, now, when folks write a song about what living in Connecticut is good for, a song that really can't be played on FM radio, by a band with one of the longest names ever, Jesus H Christ and The Four Hornsman of the Apocalypse.

The Body and The Mind are at Two Different Ages.

By: The Dude on the Right
I don't know why, but for all of my life I have liked high school-themed films.  They can be the one's geared at the dudes, the one's geared for the dudettes, or those geared for everyone.  So I guess I shouldn't have been that surprised when this morning came around and as I was deciding whether to see "Scoop," the Woody Allen movie, or "John Tucker Must Die," the high school movie, I opted for seeing if John Tucker would find an untimely demise.  I have to admit that I feel kind of silly, and I'm sure I get some weird looks, going to the local gigaplex box office, alone, and asking "One for 'John Tucker Must Die' please."  But there I sat, in the theater, myself, about ten, teen girls, and a mom.  I got some of the jokes the girls didn't, the girls got some of the jokes I didn't, so I guess it worked for all of us on some level.

And as much as going to see the "John Tucker" film sort of made me feel old, it was seeing the Chicago Cubs game on Friday that again reminded me that those days of college are way behind me.  Sure, it was like 93 degrees, sun blazing down, and humid, but back in those college days, drinking water at a ballgame never even came around as a little bit of a thought.  Granted I don't think they were even selling bottled water back then, but in those days, even with the heat, it was all about beer.  Sure, I was driving home from this Cubs' game, so drinking a lot of beer wasn't an option, but even after having the few I had before the game, and one at the ballpark, all I wanted was water, and lots of it.  So there you have it - I think my body has officially decided it has grown-up, but I suppose my mind and sense of humor have a long way to follow, especially choosing a high school flick over a Woody Allen movie, even if the Woody Allen flick did have Scarlett Johansson in it, whom I want to stalk.  I guess I'm kinda hoping my mind never catches up with my body.

That’s it for this one! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!

What's New? A Movie Review of "John Tucker Must Die."

For this movie review of "John Tucker Must Die," The Dude on the Right still can't explain why, but he likes high school-themed movies. He might have liked the movie more had John Tucker actually died, but also feels John might have a great career in politics.

What's New? Movie Reviews of "Miami Vice," "Monster House," and "My Super Ex-Girlfriend.

For these movie reviews of "Miami Vice," "Monster House," and "My Super Ex-Girlfriend," The Dude on the Right has finally gotten off his ass and actually done some movie reviewing. He was disappointed with "Miami Vice," liked "Monster House" but thought the 3-D thing needs some work, and doesn't think you should really spend the movie money for "My Super Ex-Girlfriend," but it might make a fun DVD rental.

What's New? Happy 80th Birthday Mom!, Chicago Doesn't Like Wal-Mart, Veteran's Can't Use Swear Words, and Congrats to ExxonMobil! And Some New Previews.

For this podcast, The Dude on the Right wishes his Mom a Happy 80th Birthday, wonders what is wrong with the City of Chicago Aldermen, and is still boggled because people are letting the FCC back-door censor a PBS program. The Dude also congratulates ExxonMobil because they really deserve it, and outside of the podcast, there are a few, new movie previews posted for your previewing pleasure.

What's New? More of the Dude's CD's: Orff, GWAR, and John Scofield.

The Dude on the Right is still trying to review all of the CD's he has, and here are a few more. He's got a great CD of Carl Orff's Carmina Burana, done by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, his secretary was mostly worried that GWAR's CD had giraffes in the lyrics, and he's sort of sorry for giving the John Scofield CD a lower rating. The Dude on the Right still really doesn't get jazz.

What's New? Stu & The Dude's Weekend Wrap-Up: Lots of Movie Talk, The Dude's Fly Infestation, and Stu Gets Some Culture.

For this podcast of "Stu & The Dude's Weekend Wrap-Up," there's a lot of movie talk about The Dude on the Right trying to see four movies over the weekend. The Dude only saw three, thanks to some flies and a girl named Whammy, and only got to review "Clerks II" so far. Stu, on the other hand, got cultured and got to see two girls getting it on in a park. There was a marriage proposal this weekend, but The Dude still likes all of his stuff, and not just half of it, so he's not getting married yet.

What's New? A Movie Review of "Clerks II."

For this movie review of "Clerks II," The Dude on the Right loved the movie, but will understand reasons why you might not. In any case he's giving the movie his highest rating, 5 stars, partly because he sometimes likes the sentimental, understands people have to grow up, and one scene will live in his mind to give him laugh forever. And he also loved Jay's t-shirt.

Three Movies in Two Days, but Flies and a Dinner Got in the Way. Only "Clerks II" Got Done.

By: The Dude on the Right
I had a great plan, it was simply to see four movies in two days, those movies being "Clerks II," "My Super Ex-Girlfriend," "Monster House," and "The Lady in the Water."  In the immortal words of Meat Loaf, no, wait, he was a little short of this, he only had "Two Out of Three Ain't Bad."  Me, I had three out of four.  But the bad part is this weekend, I was only able to get one review done, and this might sound weird, but it was because of flies, and I'll also blame Whammy, but I suppose, really, it's not her fault.  Nope, it was my fault asking her if she wanted to see a movie in 3-D with me losing a couple of hours of valuable reviewing time, stuck at a great Italian restaurant and great good, with interesting conversation as only Whammy seems to come up with.  In a nutshell, who the hell would try to set her up with a "Metal-Head" and a hunter?

So this weekend that was supposed to be full of movie reviews became about trying to see movies, killing a lot of flies, and having some really good food, although I did get an offer Stu will wonder why I turned it down.  All I got done was one movie review, a lot of flies killed, and this blog.  Dammit, there were a lot of flies.  And I still don't know why.

That’s it for this one! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!

What's New? All of The Dude's CDs: The Who & Corrosion of Conformity.

The Dude on the Right is trying to get back to reviewing all of the CD's in his CD collection. He has many CDs, but a few reviews already "in the can" as it would be, so he'll be trying to get them out as quickly as possible. In any case, this time he's got a review of something from "The Who" and another from "Corrosion of Conformity."

Our President Might Have Lost a Year's Pay.

By: The Dude on the Right
Much of my life is about dilemmas, or at least the dilemmas I personally create in my life.  My latest dilemma is coming up in trying to see four new movies opening this weekend in a span of two days.  If I accomplish this feat I will have spent a lot of time sitting on my ass between seeing the movies, driving to the theater, and writing my reviews.  Man, my dilemma's are tough.  But what kind of dilemma would the FCC have found themselves in if our Congress had passed the original version of the "Broadcast Decency Enforcement Act," President Bush had signed it, and our networks were covering said President Bush's attendance at the G8 summit lunch, live, with his discussion with British Prime Minister Tony Blair being aired with an open microphone, and, well, President Bush saying the word "Shit."

The original version of the "Broadcast Decency Enforcement Act" looked for a two-fold fine - One against the company who aired it, and the other against the person who said it.  Congress, later, removed the portion fining the individual (although some companies seem to be trying to make individuals sign agreements saying that if there is a fine levied, the individual will have to pay the company back, but that's another story for another time. I'm sorry, I digress), but Congress did raise the fine to something like $325,000 with some kind of cap.  But if that original bill went through the process of "I'm just a bill, Yes, I'm only a bill, and I'm sitting here on Capitol Hill," to "He signed you Bill!  Now you're a law!", right now The President of the United States should be faced with a fine nearly wiping out one year of his salary.

For me, I don't know if that is irony, or a bummer.  I seem to get those things confused ever since that Alanis Morrisette song, because I think all of her ironies are actually bummers, but in this case, would the FCC actually, under that original version, fine "The President of the United States?"  The second question is this:  Even if the Big Four Broadcasters, over the open airwaves, namely CBS, ABC, NBC, and FOX, had been airing that luncheon, live, without delay, because, well, who would assume that the S-Bomb would be aired at this summit, and they let the "shit" word fly, would they all be subject to a fine, in all of their markets, if I set up a campaign of complaints via e-mail?

I've written a few blogs about my thoughts on the FCC and what their role in indecency should be, and my thought is that they should have no authority over indecency because the airwaves regulate themselves, via their ratings and their advertisers.  But right now had Congress approved that first proposal, and President Bush signed it into law, our President might be out nearly a year's pay.

How fucked up is that?  And do any of our lawmakers actually realize this?

That’s it for this one! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!

What's New? Stu & The Dude's Weekend Wrap-Up: A Song Adds a Star to a Movie Review, Stu Has a Car Question, and a Rumored Frank Sinatra Story.

For this episode of "Stu & The Dude's Weekend Wrap-Up," Stu got to see The Indigo Girls but missed any fun girl-on-girl action. He also went to a wedding with a kick-ass band, but he can't remember the name of the band. The Dude saw a couple of movies, one he really liked, (You, Me and Dupree) especially with a song played during the film, and another that had more potential than he thinks the film-folks could see (Little Man). The Dude is also looking for someone who knows who gave Ozzie Guillen his sensitivity so he can pass their name over to his sister. Not that his sister needs the training, but maybe someone else in his family.

It's Hot Out Here, but Maybe We Lost Our Ability to Adapt, or Just Don't Give a Damn About Our Neighbors.

By: The Dude on the Right
It's hot here this weekend in the Chicago area, so of course all of the local news stories are about drinking a lot of fluids, checking on the elderly, and creative ways to beat the heat.  Some try to blame global warming, and I'm not dismissing the notion of global warming because I do think we are messing up our environment, but for the most part, lost in all of these stories, is the fact that there have always been hot spells from time to time, but maybe we have just lost our ability to adapt as the weather changes,  maybe lost some of our connection as family because we no longer necessarily live near our loved ones, and we also no longer really give a damn about our neighbors.  I for one thank, I mean blame, one man for this, and his name is Willis Carrier, and he is considered the man who invented air conditioning.

There was a time, and I don't remember it, when air conditioning in your home, in your car, at work, at the store, didn't exist.  You didn't live your life to be at a comfortable 70ish degrees, you adapted as the temperature outside got higher.  You learned how to get a breeze through your house when it worked to your advantage, you kept the windows closed for a time because the coolness of the night was still trapped inside.  But your body knew things were getting warmer, because, well, it had been doing so in the weeks leading up to a hot spell, it didn't have the benefit of getting out of the heat for most of the day, and you adapted.  And if you were older, your kids probably lived nearby.  Nearby so much that they, or at least your grandkids, stopped by to say "Hi Grandma!" at least once a day.  And when they did, and Grandma didn't have her fan on, they would say, as kids are want to say, "Grandma, can we put on the fan?"  And when they also came over Grandma would offer them something to drink, probably lemonade, and you know what, Grandma would have one, too.  Getting the elderly to put on a fan and have something extra to drink were done because we were close enough to visit.  Everyday.

And you also probably knew your neighbors because, in a worst case scenario, at the end of the day, when it was cooler outside of the house rather than inside the house, you went outside, and constantly reunited with your neighbors.  And back then, neighbors always being nosey yet still being friendly, they would wonder why "Mrs. Thompson" hasn't come out of her house yet, and would actually go over to her house, knock on the door, and politely ask, in that nosey kind of way "Emma, are you all right in there?"  If Emma didn't answer, well, her door wasn't locked, and they might find her crying in the kitchen because her husband..., well, in any case, they would get her outside of the house, into the cooler night air, and not to get her out of the stifling hot house, but to just get her out of the house.

This is how I, a Dude who doesn't know life without air conditioning, sort of sees how lots of people in your city didn't die because of the heat, because, back then, I bet it wasn't news that told you to keep cool.  You just learned to adapt, and you either had children or grandkids close enough to visit, or at least neighbors who cared to do the same.  And you always had some lemonade and stoop to sit on in some cooler night air.

And as much as I like to think of those simpler times, thank you Willis Carrier, because it was 100 degrees here outside the dude-pad today, but inside it was nicely in the 70's.  And I even picked up some lemonade at the grocery store because, well, it's summer, and what is summer without lemonade?  And you know what, maybe I should get to know my neighbors?

That’s it for this one! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!

What's New? A Movie Review of "Little Man."

For this movie review of "Little Man," The Dude on the Right finds another Wayans' movie that had so much potential to be a comedy treasure, but again lost it in the direction it decided to take. He thought it would have been better in a PG mode, geared at the kids, but he did enjoy the bouncing boobies, even with the clothes on.

What's New? A Movie Review of "You, Me and Dupree."

For this movie review of "You, Me and Dupree," The Dude on the Right admits that the movie is really about a 3 1/2 star film out of 5. He gives it 4 1/2 stars not because of nudity, not because of action, and not because of the great shots of Kate Hudson's butt, but because of a song from his "Heartland" that was in the film. It's from The Michael Stanley Band, and he couldn't believe he heard it, but thought it was way-appropriately included in the scene. Song aside, he still thinks it's a good movie for both the dudes and dudettes.

The FCC Might Hurt Your Sports TV, Congress Might Hurt Your Online Betting, but at Least Comedy Central is Back on Board.

By: The Dude on the Right
I know blogs are usually supposed to be short, so I apologize now, because I think this one will be a long one.  Here we go...

For those of you oblivious to how the government continues to take control of our lives by dictating itself as the deciding body on what you can see, hear, and how you might want to have fun, in the past two days there have been a few stories that probably didn't make your headlines, maybe didn't even make your newspaper, and if they did, were buried so far that you didn't even realize it was happening.  Pretty soon, it might be too late.  These stories have to do with a group we should be afraid of, namely the FCC (and Congress too), another group that just seems to bring menial matters up when it will help them at election-time, them being Congress, but at least one group of folks are going to re-air something on TV that got pulled in controversy, namely Comedy Central.

First the FCC (and Congress).

A little while back Congress passed, and The President signed into law, that the FCC now has the ability to fine broadcasters something like $325,000 if they, meaning a handful of appointed folks at the FCC, decide a complaint about something aired on local TV or on the radio is indecent.  That's the simplest of ways to put the fine increase.  But today I found a headline on the internet that troubled me, especially after reading the subsequent story:  "FCC combing air tapes for dirty words."  Pretty much, as the story goes, the FCC has requested from a bunch of broadcasters tapes from mostly sports' broadcasts where someone, whether it be a fan, superstar, or anyone, seemed to have uttered a "dirty" word.  The question I have is "Why?"  One of the quotes from the story stated that "I don't know how they are going to rule, but they asked us for tapes with a specific emphasis on crowd noise," said another TV executive, who also requested anonymity. "If some bozo in the crowd calls the ref an asshole, the commission is asking for a copy of the tape."  If the FCC decides that said bozo in the crowd yelling "you're a lazy shit-head" is indecent, and since a TV station aired it (as well as maybe the covering radio station), that the TV and radio station should be fined, well, $325,000 (or more), if you thought your TV was getting more tame all of the time, think again.  You might be able to still watch live events on TV, but don't count on any audio.  Most people don't seem to notice and just seem to want to let our government be the babysitter for their kids, but for Christ's sake, you seem to have no idea where this path is leading.  Five people have the decision to decide if the word "shit" is indecent, and they decided it is.  No one seems to want to notice, and there doesn't seem to be many Congress folks with enough balls to say something like "I'm not for indecency, but I this is bullshit."

Next up, Congress and Gambling.

For this story the House of Representatives has passed legislation pretty much eliminating online gambling in the United States, unless, of course, you want to still play the lottery or bet on the horses.  The story isn't done, yet, because it still has to pass the Senate, but this is a bad sign.  For those of you putting money down in poker games online, trying your hand at blackjack, or maybe you just think that Ebert & Roper will give a movie "Two Thumbs Up!", well, your Congress is working to say "Screw you, you can't blow your money on someone we can't tax, but if you want to throw it all away on the lottery or better yet, the horses, go right ahead!"  How are they doing it?  Well, they are trying to make it illegal for United States banking folks to transfer money to offshore gambling sites.  I'm sure there are ways around this, but really, it's a hassle you don't need, but you also don't seem to be fighting for your right to gamble.  The Senate hasn't taken up this debate yet, but if they do, this is where, you gambling folks, better get off your collective asses and write your Senators.  The problem with the United States on this, and I think this is what really pisses them off, is that they didn't figure out a way at the beginning to make this legal in the U.S., and how to make the bucks off of this.  What to do now?  Make it really illegal until they can figure out how to make a buck.  In any case, by now, most of the online gamblers have figured that the big name internet gambling sites out there in the world aren't out there to steal their money, because that doesn't let them be there for the long haul.  The big names work to be legitimate because, well, the gamblers keep coming back.  Sometimes someone will win big, but gambling has always been in favor of the house, so that is why there are there.  If anyone is really pissed off at Congress it has got to be the casinos in Vegas because they could easily set up online gaming sites for all of the United States, make them totally legit, and even give the government their cut.  But the United States missed that boat, and a lot of these off-shore companies are making billions of bucks without having to give a cut back to US, I mean the U.S.  But Congress doesn't want you to gamble, unless someone in the United States is making money, and thus, the United States is making money, so online gamblers beware, it might get a hell of a lot more difficult for you to put you bet on the next "American Idol" or think you can actually win a Texas Hold-em Poker Match with a bunch of people you can't even see.

And Finally, Comedy Central.

There was a controversy a little while back when Comedy Central pulled an episode of "South Park" called "Trapped in a Closet," around the time when "Mission Impossible: III" came out."  Many news reports stated that it was pulled at the request of Tom Cruise, who gets made fun of in the episode, him and Scientology, but the Comedy Central folks gave their own reasons for pulling the episode.  But, as weird things go, the "Trapped in a Closet" was nominated for an Emmy award.  How can you not put an episode back on the air when it has been nominated for an Emmy Award?  Well, Comedy Central has decided to re-air the episode, so set your episode for July 19th, check your local listings for times, but this is one, really, funny episode.  At least someone in the TV entertainment side seemed to have gotten their balls back.

I guess for this blog my words of warnings are these:  Pay attention to the restrictions our Government continues to place on us.  Five people are deciding what is indecent, a bunch of people looking to get re-elected think an easy way to get votes is to eliminate gambling on the internet, (and don't get me started on gay marriage, abortion, how this manipulates your elections) and if you think this doesn't effect you, or things you like in your life, you are wrong.

That’s it for this one! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!

What's New? A Movie Review of "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest."

For this movie review of "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest," The Dude on Right has already fallen in love with all of the characters of the movie from the first film, and is planning on stalking and professing to Keira Knightley his love for her. But as far as the movie, The Dude was a little disappointed that the story lacked a lot even though the effects were great. He's looking forward to the third part of the trilogy because it seems to show a better story.

The Dude on the Right is Back to Wondering About his History.

By: The Dude on the Right
This past week or so something came back up in my life that I would really like to research, really would like to find out the answers to, and would really like to figure out a great way to document things, both the good and the bad, but sadly the time to find these things are slipping away.  It's my Dude genealogy.  I got into it a bunch of years back, but it started again over the 4th of July weekend, when I was starting to clean the Dude-Pad, and I found a place to hang some older paintings of some of my elders that would actually sort of work in the decorative scheme of my Dude-Pad.  I was pretty sure the one picture was of my Grandma, but didn't really know who the other dude was.  So I e-mailed my mother, and for the photo to the right I was able to confirm that the painting of the girl was my Grandma, at age 16, and that the painting of the dude is my Great Uncle Edward.  From my Mom's memory, he died in World War I, was declared missing, then my Great-Great Grandma went to France to see what is his grave.  I have never known the man, but we are related, and thanks to my Mom, I have a story to tell about him, the man in the painting.  And that's the thing we seem to miss about our ancestors, accurate stories to tell.

The sort of bummer side of this is that my Grandma always had stories to tell, and I was a lot younger at the time, so most of them are in fragments.  I remember her stories about her coming over on a boat, and the boat had trouble getting here, and still remember that she made the best toast, with the pat of butter that didn't melt so when you got to the middle of the toast you got squished bread with a big pat of butter.  My Grandma aside, in the grand scheme of things, my mother had a plan to record our history, especially since this was the donning of the age of cassette tapes:  Visit Grandma and let her record her stories.  But my Grandma was not really one for technology, didn't want to "tell her stories to a tape recorder," and for most of the times, unless those memories pop up for whatever reason, most of her stories are lost.  As I'm writing this blog, two of her stories pop back into my head, and they are two of my favorites, never to be forgotten, but my dilemma in this blog is how to start to record these things I find, or remember, and try to find the best way to document them.  And now my self-diagnosed OCD kicks in because as much as we don't want to admit it, all of our families are fascinating, from the good to the bad, and in this day and age, when we can easily record our history, we still forget to.

71ish years ago a woman named Miss Burrell put a simple quote in an autograph book of my Aunt's.  Back then, girls kept autograph books, and my Aunt had a book, which I now have.  The quote was this:  Happiness is an excellent remedy and keeps people in better health than any other medicine.  I don't know where Miss Burrell got this quote, or whether she made it up on her own, but it's a quote that still fits with life today.  The autograph book I have isn't that big, but it is filled with lots of other quotes, sayings, things, that shouldn't be lost.  And as I hold it, it is at least 71ish years old.

And as my OCD continues to kick in, the oldest thing that I know I have is a silver dollar coin from 1878.  It's not worth much money because most of all of it is worn, but the date is there, a mere 13 years after Abraham Lincoln was assassinated.  My Grandma on my Mom's side was born a mere 20 years after that coin.  And I'm not even going to get into my Dad's side right now because otherwise this blog will get really too long.

I guess I got sort of melancholy over the last weekend, but realized again that all of our lives are fascinating, and should be shared, to at least our families, and it shouldn't just be the good, but it should also be the bad, so that we can, and our siblings can, know where we come from, and learn.  I guess I'm such a dork sometimes.

That’s it for this one! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!

What's New? A Movie Review of "Superman Returns."

For this movie review of "Superman Returns," The Dude on the Right enjoyed that they kept the story a little more serious than those of the Christopher Reeve time. He also loved Kevin Spacey's take as Lex Luther, and wishes Kate Bosworth, umm, Lois Lane, would cover him the was she did Superman.
