What's New? Stu & The Dude's Weekend Wrap-Up Podcast: Academy Award Talk, "Reno 911!: Miami," and a Children's Museum.

For this podcast of "Stu & The Dude's Weekend Wrap-Up!", The Dude on the Right gives his Oscar/Academy Award show wrap-up, since he was stupid enough to watch the entire show, while Stu Gotz was smart, and didn't. The Dude also saw "Reno 911!: Miami," while Stu went to an aquarium and a Children's Museum.

The Academy Awards are Boring Me Right Now.

By: The Dude on the Right
Well I survived our ice storm, and now I'm just trying to survive The Academy Awards.  I have to admit that I have been in the midst of finishing up animating our next episode of "Stu & The Dude Reviewin' the Movies for You," our review of "Ghost Rider," and at this stage all I have left to do is let the computer do its work and render all of my work into something I can post for all of you to see, which hopefully will get finished tomorrow night.  But in that midst, The Academy Awards have been on, and I have to say other than the slightly entertaining musical number about comedians not winning anything, it's been a bore-fest.  The un-surprise has been that Eddie Murphy didn't win for best supporting actor, which most people will blame his latest work in "Norbit" as the cause, or worse, that the Academy is racist.

The odd part for me is that this is probably the first year that I haven't seen any of the films nominated for Best Picture.  I know, I suppose I'm a lousy reviewer for admitting this, especially when, yesterday, my local gigaplex was having "Academy Award" picture day, where for a mere $30 you could sit from 11AM until it finished and watch all five of the films back-to-back.  Rather than catch up on my films for Oscar day, I opted to see "Reno 911!: Miami," which I can honestly say, even though I gave it 4 stars out of 5, has absolutely no chance of being nominated for anything for next year's award show.

Well, I suppose I'll wrap-up this blog now, let my computer do its rendering magic, and see if I can stay awake for the rest of The Academy Awards, and see if Jennifer Hudson loses the best supporting actress award, since it has already been bizarre that "Happy Feet" beat "Cars."

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

What's New? A Movie Review of "Reno 911!: Miami"

For this review of "Reno 911!: Miami," The Dude on the Right really enjoyed the movie, but then again, he is King of The Land of the Easily Amused. He also thinks he had a peek into one of the screenwriting sessions as to the real reason for the beached whale scene.

Thanks to Howard Stern I'm Now Just Greedy.

By: The Dude on the Right
I've always had two answers as to why I haven't found, nor actively looked for, a woman to marry yet.  One was that right now I like all of my stuff.  When the day comes that I only like half of my stuff I will then actively pursue the woman of my dreams.  I can then be content knowing that if, or as seems to be the case nowadays when, my marriage comes to an end, the only thing I have to hope is that she likes the half of my stuff I no longer like.  In a worst case scenario I am stuck with half of my stuff that I did like at one time.

The other answer was because of a man.  I suppose that really isn't an answer, but rather his name led to a pathway of explanations that seemed to make so much sense.  He explained many a time why marriage is the worst contract a man can ever enter into.  He also explained, as he seemed to be in complete bliss with girlfriend, as to why would he want to change anything with the woman he loved since things were going so well.  He also explained that if things did need to end, that by not being married it would be easier to complete the split.  He explained that there didn't seem to be a reason to be married as neither of them wanted children.  And he also commented on all of the things that would likely change with marriage, like less sex, more getting ordered around, and the wife letting herself go physically, things that he has seen happen with those around him who tied the knot.  That man was Howard Stern.

But I can use him no more because this morning he announced that he is officially engaged to his long-time girlfriend, Beth Ostrosky.  Yes, congratulations are in order, and Howard tried really hard to explain, well, that he is only engaged, and not married.  But lots of men, this morning, lost their probable last excuse for justification to their girlfriend that they shouldn't get married.  "Honey, look at how happy Howard Stern is with his girlfriend, and they aren't married.  Why would we want to risk our love with such a drastic change?" - Sorry dudes, you can't use that line, anymore.  "Honey, we don't need to have a silly ceremony to profess our love.  Everyone can see the love we have for each other by our actions, just like Howard and Beth!" - Nope, dudes, forget about that one, also.

Being 39 I suppose I could still use Howard Stern as my excuse, for a little while longer, as to why I haven't found the perfect woman, like when, at the local watering hole, my buddies ask "Dude, why haven't you found the woman of your dreams?", I can simply say "Because she's not old enough to get in this bar, yet."

Anyway, congrats again to Howard (and Beth)!  Beth sounds like a sweetheart and he seems totally lucky to have found her.  But this morning Howard Stern also threw lots of dudes under the bus because all they will be hearing now from their dudette is "... but Howard proposed to Beth?"  I've at least got a little while longer to use Howard Stern as my reason for not finding the girl I will marry.  After that, I guess, I'm just a greedy bastard because it will take a truly special girl to stop me from liking all of my stuff.

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

What's New? A Quick CD Review of "Right Back at Ya" from Michael Stanley Band.

For this quick CD review of "Right Back at Ya" from Michael Stanley Band, The Dude on the Right puts this one almost as a "best of" of a band that, for whatever radio reasons, but most likely "money’s still the way they keep score," never made the uber-national stage. They will still, always, be one of his top five bands ever.

Sundays are Productive Again!

By: The Dude on the Right
It's amazing how much more productive I can be on a Sunday when there isn't a football game to distract me.  For whatever reason football is not a multitasking sport for me.  Golf, baseball, basketball, or NASCAR I can have playing on the TV above my computer work area and keep up and never feel I am missing anything, but not for football.  Maybe it's the fact that any given play can be exciting, or there's the action, then the stop in the action to huddle, then the action again, then the stop again, and eventually a commercial break to go pee.  Baseball, basketball, and NASCAR just seem to plow along during their duration, and sure, golf has the action/break sequence of football but unless it's a hole-in-one, I'm not going to miss something exciting.

But now that football season is done, today has been one of the most productive Sundays in a while.  I read my newspaper with my breakfast, I did some grocery shopping where I bought only the foods I needed to get back on my healthy track this week, and I filled up the dude-mobile with go-go juice.  I was going to get the dude-mobile washed, but with this being the first, sort of warmer day we've had in a while, the line for each car wash I saw was over ten cars deep, and I didn't want to spend the next hour waiting in line to get my car washed, especially when the forecast for tonight is snow, which means more road salt, which means that if I drive anywhere tomorrow, well, my car will look pretty much as it does right now, and I would have wasted an hour in line at the car wash.  I didn't plan ahead, I guess, on the car wash thing, because the Turtle Wax does have free internet access and gives you a "Two Day Clean Car Guarantee," so I could have actually been productive, and got a free car wash on Tuesday, but alas, I'll have to try to remember to bring my laptop the next time.

But on my productive scale today, I also got a whole butt-load of movie previews posted, and started working on redesigning our home page a bit.  The Grammy Awards are tonight, so I'll probably try catch them and hope something fun happens.

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

For this movie review of "Norbit," The Dude on the Right doesn't have much to say except he did like the neighbor dog, and Eddie Murphy's portrayal of Mr. Wong.

For this podcast The Dude on the Right is sad the Chicago Bears lost in the Super Bowl, but looks forward to being confused for both baseball and basketball. He also wonders why there hasn't been an uproar about Prince's guitar during his halftime show, and looks forward to the new season of Survivor with his new girlfriend, Jessica.

What's New? Movie Reviews of "Epic Movie" and "Smokin' Aces."

The Dude on the Right saw a couple of movies over the weekend. He felt "Epic Movie" had pretty much no potential, but felt "Smokin' Aces" had a lot of potential, until it changed direction from a movie about a bunch of over-the-top assassins to an FBI mob want-a-be movie.

Being Sick, Super Bowl Pre-Game, and Bobby Flay Needs to Learn About Food.

By: The Dude on the Right
Maybe it’s the cold weather, maybe it’s something I ate, but for whatever reason I find myself sidelined from my Super Bowl watching plans by some kind of stomach flu, complete with a slight fever. So as I’m curled up here on my couch, waiting for the game to start, I am forcing myself through the pre-game coverage, and figured I would type a quick blog.

My Super Bowl viewing plans were pretty simple, and pretty much the same as it has been for the last half a dozen years: Hop in the dude-mobile and watch the game at Dewey, my accountant’s, house with his friends and family. I even had some hors ‘d oeuvres to bring, and had I felt better yesterday, I probably would have attempted this fabulous peach cream cheese cake/pie thing. So, instead, I’ll probably heat up the hors ‘d oeuvres for myself, so I don’t have to cook, and just stay curled up under a blanket on my couch.

But a couple of observations I have had while watching the pre-game coverage have really struck me. One is, and no breaking bad on Stevie Nicks, but what the hell was she doing there, singing "Stand Back," which is from like 1983. I also hope some producer or director is getting chewed out for the ending of the "Baghdad Bowl" segment. All was going well, we got to see the soldiers playing some flag football, then there was the nice "letting some of them give shout-outs back home," and as Randy Cross was introducing the climactic moment of the segment, with all of the soldiers yelling "Hello back home, we love you!" someone cut back to James Brown, asking an inane question if any of the soldiers might want to be football players, then cutting back to the soldiers, then Randy Cross doing his best to wrap-up the segment. Randy Cross had the perfect ending for the segment; too bad J.B. couldn’t keep his mouth shut.

And finally, a message to Bobby Flay, who was doing the food segment. First off, from everything I’ve been able to find on the Internet in my two minute search, Indianapolis is famous for its breaded pork tenderloin sandwich. You came up with corn, proceeding to now highlight a corn-dog, and I believe it was a butterscotch pie. Then you moved to Chicago, where you spotlighted the Italian beef sandwich and the Chicago Style Hot Dog. Both good choices, but in my now 21 years living in the Chicago area, I have never heard of putting mustard, nor red peppers on the Italian beef. From what I know there are only three things you add to your Italian beef: Green sweet pepper slices, hot giardiniera, and/or more juice. And I don’t know what bread you were using, but it also isn’t served on bread/roll that is sliced all the way through like a submarine sandwich, it is sliced half-way through to conveniently hold the beef and peppers, until, of course, the juice soaks through, the bread disintegrates, and the beef and peppers end up on your plate or tie. And your Chicago Style Hot Dog needs some work, also. You do not put chopped tomatoes on the hot dog, you put tomato slices, and you also forgot two other major ingredients, the Kosher dill pickle spear and the sport peppers. And you also forgot to mention that in no instance are you to add ketchup to the Chicago hot dog.

Well, I should wrap this up and get wrapped back up on the couch. And Bobby Flay, can I recommend two things? One is Google (look up "famous Indianapolis food") and Wikipedia, which gives detailed info on both the Chicago hot dog and the Italian beef, as well as that breaded pork tenderloin.

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

What's New? A Podcast of: Abdulism's of the Week Are Coming Soon, Go Bears, and Baby, It's Cold Outside.

For this podcast The Dude on the Right is eagerly anticipating the "American Idol" contestants actually getting to Hollywood, and really wishes the Super Bowl with the Chicago Bears and Indianapolis Colts was over already so the over-coverage of the event, at least in Chicago, would end. He also wishes the Super Bowl would be played in Chicago over the weekend, rather than in Miami, because the weather forecast for Chicago on the day of the Super Bowl puts the phrase "Frozen Tundra" in a whole new league.
