For this podcast it is a Thanksgiving Weekend Wrap-Up. Stu Gotz went shopping and saw a parade, while The Dude on the Right explains why he is a bad Uncle and eating capon vs. turkey.

Holiday Priorities: Christmas Displays, Website Postings, or Porn and the Computer Industry.

By: The Dude on the Right
I seem to have painted myself into a dilemma corner of prioritizing.  It's early Saturday evening and I've recently gotten back from visiting the old country and an interesting Capon Day holiday.  I would say Turkey Day, but instead of turkey for Thanksgiving, Mom decided to revert to the old days when we always had a capon for Thanksgiving instead of turkey.  Back in those days turkeys tended to come out very dry, or at least I think I remember that is what Mom told us, so we had capon instead. We didn't care that a capon was a castrated rooster, mostly, maybe, because we didn't really know what a capon really was, but it was always tasty and moist, like chicken (duh).  Then, for whatever reason (I guess man perfected the turkey so that when cooked, it was juicy instead of dry), we switched to turkey.  And for the past bunch of years, turkey was the meal, and I always butchered the shit out of it while trying to do my best at carving.  This year my butchering the shit out of the capon was no different than my butchering of our turkeys, although the capon seemed to come out a hell of a lot more greasy than juicy than I remember.

But that's not having anything to do with my dilemma of prioritizing...

My dilemma of prioritizing comes because of things like this:

-  Stu wanted me to take a picture while I was at home, sort of a homework assignment, and instead of one I took a few, all having to do with this picture at the right.  Now I'm supposed to write a blog about my photos.  But when?

-  I would like to get in the Christmas spirit by getting my display and tree put up, but do I do that and sacrifice postings to Entertainment Ave!?

-  I would really like to do some cleaning around the Dude-Pad.

-  I have to do some Christmas shopping.

-  My movie-viewing is all screwed up because of both Thanksgiving Day weekend and this upcoming weekend when some of my friends are having a Christmas Party Weekend.

-  I came up with a blog idea about a funny story at home this past weekend.

-  I also came up with a blog idea about porn and the computer industry, over 25 years old.

-  I also came up with a blog idea about when you play a "bad photo" trump card.

-  I also have some consulting work to do before the end of the year.

-  And Lord knows with everything else getting in the way, I'm wondering when I'm going to find the time to catch up on my TV watching.

-  And, oh yea, I have a blog about how I'm a bad Uncle.

-  And, oh yea again, there are the Chicago Bears to watch.

So many things to do, so little time, and that's not even bringing up the fact of trying to write a review of "The Pick of Destiny," let alone doing a Stu & The Dude Movie Review of the movie, nor I have a couple of new CD's to review.

November and December are so complicated.  I just don't know where to start.

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

What's New? Stu & The Dude's Weekend Wrap-Up Podcast: Stu's Done with "The Family Guy" and "Happy Feet," The Dude Does "Casino Royale" and Wonders About a "Food Source Not Known."

For this podcast Stu Gotz is back in town and The Dude on the Right is happy. Stu talks of times at Disney and at "Happy Feet," while The Dude on the Right talks of "Casino Royale" and informs Stu that their favorite resaurant is clean, at least in the City of Chicago's eyes, while one restaurant is closed for a food source. The Dude still wonders when he will catch up on his TV watching even though "Dancing with the Stars" done.

Turkey Day Week Plans Already Are Going to the Birds.

By: The Dude on the Right
With Turkey Day being this coming Thursday, this is always a weird week to actually try to accomplish anything as planned.  Most people either take off the entire week, realizing nothing substantial will get accomplished, or go to work because they have to only to worry most of the time about how this Thanksgiving will turn out and if there will be any fights.  Me, my Turkey Day week of trying to accomplish things but not sticking with my game-plan has already started.

First off, this weekend, I actually had four movies I wanted to see.  "Casino Royale," "Shut Up & Sing," "Happy Feet," and "Let's Go to Prison" were all on my list.  I even had the schedule planned.  I would see the first showing of "Casino Royale" on Saturday, followed immediately by "Happy Feet" and I would still be able to catch the end of the Ohio State/Michigan football game.  Then there was a 10AM showing of "Let's Go to Prison" on Sunday morning, which would have worked perfectly to see the Chicago Bears game, and I could go and see "Shut Up & Sing" after the Bears' defeat of the New York Jets.  I also figured I could fit in cleaning my bathroom and maybe even some exercising during the weekend.  And, oh yea, I was going out Saturday night to top it all off.

Then I remembered I should probably get the brakes on my car looked at, and my self-diagnosed OCD kicked in at getting all of our IMDB links fixed so I could re-design our Movie Theater review archives (the re-design hasn't happened as of this blog typing).

With my plans now in flux, I go and see "Casino Royale" on Saturday, just as planned.  Skipping "Happy Feet" I head to the place I've always gone to when having my brakes looked at, only to find they changed their hours on Saturday, closing at 1PM.  So I head to the local Midas, only they are already filled for the day.  So much for my brakes.  Those plans screwed, I went home to watch Ohio State beat Michigan, while feverishly updated our IMDB links because I was heading out Saturday evening.

Then of course I stayed out too late.

Yup, oversleeping on Sunday morning blew "Let's Go to Prison" out of the movie viewing schedule, the Bears did beat the Jets, but by that time I could see "Shut Up & Sing" or continue with my OCDing of our IMDB links, especially since I was so close to being finished, so I opted for my OCDing.

So, lets' see.  This weekend I wanted to see four movies and I saw one.  I wanted to clean my bathroom but at least I did do  laundry. I wanted to exercise, but sadly only my fingers and mouse hand got any exercise.  At least I did get all of our IMDB links finished, if only I could catch up on some of my TV viewing right now instead of typing this blog and watching the Dallas Cowboys play the Indianapolis Colts.

So much for getting anything I really want to get done during Turkey Day week so far, and I haven't even brought up when I might get some time to set up my Christmas display.

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

What's New? A Movie Review of "Casino Royale."

For this movie review of "Casino Royale," The Dude on the Right was surprised to find that he really liked a James Bond film without any totally wacky gadgets. He liked Daniel Craig in the role of James, wishes his accountant looked like Eva Green, but just thought most of the scenes dragged on just a little too long.

What's New? A Podcast of: Congrats Emmitt, Poor Karina, Zubrowka and the FDA, and A Challenge.

For this podcast The Dude on the Right is happy that Emmitt Smith won "Dancing with the Stars," wonders about Karina's pissy attitude, wishes the FDA wouldn't ban some substances, and wonders if his niece or sister will participate in a podcast for Thanksgiving. All in good time.

Emmitt Smith, You Can't Touch Him, and I Re-Found Zebrahead.

By: The Dude on the Right
Much like I can figure most people watching the "Dancing with the Stars" finale, you've already got your favorite, and that favorite can fall on their ass, drop their partner, or even stare at the camera and say something like "This show is the dumbest-ass show I have ever been on."  Fine, the last one will definitely not happen, but we've all got our favorites, and I'll be voting for Emmitt Smith, or at least try to vote.

I am happy this season of "Dancing with the Star" is almost over because I do need to free some time to catch up on my TV viewing, and actually getting some real stuff done, but after last week, I am suddenly rejuvenated and my multitasking abilities seem to back, better than ever. (You see, as I type this, Emmitt just got a "perfect score").  And with my TiVo, tomorrow's result's show should be a breeze since I don't need to see all of the filler stuff, just who wins.  And nothing against Mario, GO EMMITT!!!!!!!!!!!

TV aside, as I work to get back into the concert and music thing, sometimes I have to thank my Sirius Satellite Radio because today I re-found a band I really liked, one I sort of fell out of touch with except when some of their songs popped up on my iPod during my exercising, and that band is Zebrahead.  I found them during their "Playmate of the Year" days, but on the road today, I heard their latest single, "Anthem," and I'm right back being a Zebrahead fan.  Music re-finds yourself sometimes, in different places, because the only reason I heard them today was due to a traffic accident (not mine, but I was stuck in the resulting traffic).  I have to thank those who got in the accident, I just hope nobody, well, was seriously hurt.

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

My Male PMS is Over (I Hope.) Now I Have TV to Watch.

By: The Dude on the Right
Thank God "Lost" is going on hiatus because I have too much TV to watch, and too much I need to catch up.  Hell, I'm trying to catch up on last week's "Heroes" as I type this, want to watch the "60 Minutes" special about Ed Bradley which is recording now, the Chicago Bears' game is starting in about an hour, and now that the NBC folks say they aren't going to cancel "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" I suppose I should try to catch up with last week's episode, and I'm not even going into my still needing to catch last week's "Survivor," "Battlestar Gallactica" or the meerkat show.

But next week things slow down even more because it's the finale of "Dancing with the Stars," pitting Mario Lopez vs. Emmitt Smith, and I'm an Emmitt fan so I might actually vote this week.

I think part of my backlog was having a crappy week, which I think caused me to lose some of my concentration skills, and just as important, my ability to multitask.  This weekend, though, I think I am starting to get back in the groove. I got over my writer's block and wrote my concert review of seeing "Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers," saw "Stranger than Fiction" and got that review written.  I was also able to do some cleaning of the dude-pad while still watching Brett Favre and the Packers beat the Minnesota Vikings.

Maybe it was male PMS, maybe it was the Chicago Bears' losing to the Miami Dolphins that got to me, but last week was a challenge.  We all have those weeks.

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

What's New? A Movie Review of "Stranger than Fiction."

For this movie review of "Stranger than Fiction," The Dude on the Right is getting tired of male nudity. That's not saying anything bad about "Stranger than Fiction" because he did like the movie and doesn't want to give the ending away - he thought it was pretty cool. He is just looking for some new female boob-age, but might have to wait until "Apocalypto," but then it will probably be National Geographic boobs. In any case, The Dude says to go and see "Stranger than Fiction," but for the funny and not for boobs.

What's New? A Concert Review of Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers.

For this review of Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, The Dude on the Right, again, forgot some rules about seeing some concerts. He had a great time, looks forward to the band's next CD, but wishes he had worn more comfortable shoes, and realized he should have gotten there a few minutes earlier.

What's New? Stu & The Dude's Weekend Wrap-Up, Less Stu: The Chicago Bears Sucked, "Borat" Didn't, "Flushed Away" Did, and Election Ads Are Almost Done.

For this podcast The Dude on the Right is left alone for the weekend wrap-up, with Stu Gotz being out of town. The Dude is happy elections are almost over, liked that "Borat" movie, and wonders about Kirstie Alley in a bikini on Oprah. There's also a new review of "Flushed Away" posted, but The Dude's accountant fell asleep during the film and The Dude thinks that might give you an idea about the movie.

What's New? Movie Reviews of "Borat" and "Jackass Number Two."

The Dude on the Right see "Borat:, something, something, something about Kazakhstan" and wonder if you find it offensive or if will make you laugh. He like. He also like "Jackass Number Two," and got video review finally done. It took too long, but he did stunt. Ooops.

What's New? A Podcast of: The Dude on the Right is in a Pissy Mood. He Counts the Ways.

For this podcast The Dude on the Right has been in a pissy mood the past couple of days, and for the podcast, he tries to break it all down. He's not sure if it might be the political ads, missing Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers, or smashing his hand in a car door. Then again it might be Bob Barker.
