What's New? A Podcast of: Senator Craig Teaches Us, Labor Day Weekend Weakens Us, and "The Biggest Loser" Strengthens Us.

The Dude on the Right didn't get a chance to do his Thursday podcast because he was slacking off watching the Chicago Cubs beat the Milwaukee Brewers. Instead he decided to do a podcast today, on a Friday, and so, for this podcast,The Dude on the Right would like to thank Senator Craig from Idaho for teaching us about some things when we drop the kids off at the pool, is looking to eat like crap for a couple of days, and looks to get back in shape with the return of "The Biggest Loser."

Until then it's Labor Day Weekend, a time to eat bad food, enjoy the end of summer, and celebrate pregnant women!

What's New? A Podcast of: Stu & The Dude's Weekend Wrap-Up! "Mr. Bean's Holiday," Stu Saw "Superbad," & The Dude Left His Pad.

For this podcast of the latest episode of "Stu & The Dude's Weekend Wrap-Up!", The Dude on the Right still marvels at how much they fit in with so little time. Sometimes The Dude thinks they should have their own radio show to be able to elaborate more, but for now they talk of "Mr. Bean's Holiday," "Superbad," door etiquette, the beauty of Fry's, Michael Jackson's parenting skills, cutting grass, Tivos, running down people with a bike, going to Super Target, TV shows coming back in the fall, and they do all of this talking in under 20 minutes.

What the Hell is an MRAP, and Can We Ship Them via FedEx?

By: The Dude on the Right
I try not to get political in my blogs, but after reading a story that seems to have gotten little notice in the press lately, and watching the documentary "Shut Up & Sing" over the weekend, I thought I would relay something I read, that as I have kept thinking about it for the last couple of days, it makes me upset and sad, but mostly upset. My thoughts on "Shut Up & Sing" will wait for a later blog.

In the Chicago Tribune on Thursday, August 23rd, there was a story, sort of buried, titled "Delivery Lags on Armored Vehicles." Maybe it was the ad next to the story that initially caught my eye, and then my eye caught the small story, but there it was, that our United States, supposedly the most powerful nation in the world, still can’t seem to get things together to protect our troops in Iraq.

The story, as it turns out, was about the MRAP’s. I didn’t know what an MRAP stood for, but as I read I learned it’s for "Mine Resistant Ambush Protected" vehicles. The little article states, "According to the military, no troops have been killed while riding in one." Finally, a kick-ass vehicle for the good-guys! The problem is that it’s looking like the goal of getting 3,500 of them to Iraq by the end of the year isn’t going to happen, instead it’s looking like we’ll be lucky to get around 43%, that’s 1,500 to you and me, of those life-saving vehicles, to our troops, by the end of the year.

The story then goes on to state Geoff Morrell, the press secretary from the Pentagon, said that getting 3,500 of the vehicles to Iraq by year’s end was ambitious, and that the 1,500 number was more realistic. Who the fuck, and pardon my French, fed that initial goal? I can understand when your initial goal is 3,500 and you only reach 3,000 (that’s a touch above 85%), but we’re reaching less than half? How is that acceptable?  How is 3,500 a goal and 1,500 realistic?  Maybe he should have said "3,500 is a pipe-dream, we'd be lucky to get 500 over there by the end of the year."  At least then he'd be telling the truth.

And as disappointed, and mad, that we still can’t do the fundamental things for our troops that we need to do, and that is get them the equipment, vehicles, and Silly String (maybe that Silly String thing has been remedied, but I’m too lazy, right now, to investigate) they need to keep them alive, the end of the article was the part that really burned my butt, and if true, should burn the butt of every person in The United States. The end of the article pointed out that as of now the MRAP’s that do get built are being flown over to the Middle East to get them to our soldiers as fast as possible. The AP writer who wrote this article then states that as production increases we’ll probably be sending them by ship, because we can send more at one time, and it’s cheaper - The thing is it only takes longer. Go ahead, explain to the mother, father, wife, husband, child, or friend, of a soldier that dies, that as we have already blown our budget, that we’ve been spending so much already on our new embassy in Iraq, that we wanted to save a few bucks by shipping the MRAP’s by boat.  Sure, the writer stated we'll "probably" be sending them by ship, and what does he know, but why the hell shouldn't we believe him when we can't reach 50% of our goal of production?

I tried to do a little internet surfing about the delay of the MRAP’s, but for the most part, other than Senator Joe Biden’s people figuring out how to get a high Google ranking for his cause, most of the others were "this, that, or the other thing" about their delay. One site that does seem to give the best answer to the problem is at, but I still wonder why any of the problems they state are problems at all, when it comes to our troops.

Most of us say that no matter our stance on our going into Iraq that we always support our troops, and you plaster those magnetic ribbons all over your car, but our government doesn’t seem to have our side sometimes. I guess at this point of this blog, if you have made it this far, that no matter if you are Democrat or Republican, write to your Congressman, Senator, newspaper, that since our spending is already out of hand, at least send every MRAP by air. Maybe it is something we can at least do to support our troops, if the MRAP’s ever do get built, because no soldier should die because we sent an MRAP by boat to save a buck.  You already spent a buck on that magnetic ribbon, maybe your money/taxes should be spent better, like actually in a way that could save a soldier.

I’m sorry for getting political for this blog, but for me, now, the Iraq portion of this war, which supposedly started with the attack on the World Trade Center, is such a clusterfuck. Howard Stern apologized to The Dixie Chicks for his initial support of going to Iraq (sorry, I slightly digress to the "Shut Up & Sing" documentary), but I have to apologize to my mom for doing the same thing.  From Day 1 my mom knew better about going into Iraq, but that’s a story for a later blog.

If you have ever bought one of those magnetic ribbons showing you support our troops, and even if you didn’t, our government is already spending our money like it’s candy. Tell them to at least get the MRAP’s over to Iraq as soon as possible, even if they have ship them by FedEx. There shouldn't be any MRAP's that should float by boat - Fuck the money, we're already spending it, and it might just save a life for a change.

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

What's New? A Movie Review of "Mr. Bean's Holiday."

For this movie review of "Mr. Bean's Holiday," The Dude on the Right figures he had to sit through a little over an hour of Mr. Bean just being goofy and filming his travels on his trusty video camera. But it was at that little over an hour mark that all of that goofiness and videotaping payed off and really made The Dude laugh. Funny, though, because the kids in the theater didn't seem to understand why the adults were now laughing.

What's New? A Podcast of: Is God Mad at the Midwest, Should I Try Out for "Wheel of Fortune," and A Dude Named Chicken?

For this podcast The Dude on the Right has his wonderings about why God is mad at the Midwest. He must be mad because why else would there be all of this flooding, rain, and wrath of God stuff? The Dude also dabs a little into Michael Vick, but wonders more if he should try and audition for "Wheel of Fortune" and if he can control his TV viewing in the fall, especially since "Survivor: China" looks to have some good-looking dudettes. The Dude loves his TV.

What's New? A Podcast of: Stu & The Dude's Weekend Wrap-Up! Illegal Aliens, RVing, "Superbad," and a Cubs Game.

For this podcast of "Stu & The Dude's Weekend Wrap-Up!" Stu Gotz and The Dude on the Right give their take on the deportation of Elvira Arellano, how their grandparents learned to speak English, and where is the Dad? Stu also went on an overnight RV trip with the family, The Dude saw "Superbad," and they both went to a Chicago Cubs game where they can be seen on TV. What a weekend!

What's New? A Movie Review of "Superbad."

For this movie review of "Superbad" The Dude on the Right thinks that Judd Apatow has found the perfect formula for adult comedies. Almost. The Dude didn't really like all of the cop stuff in the movie, and the film brought back traumatic high school memories which he didn't really want to re-live, but now that The Dude is older, they make him laugh. The Dude just wishes he would have told, well, someone, that he liked her. At least the "Superbad" dudes probably got their girls. The Dude had to wait a little while.

Garth Brooks Probably Isn't Touring, and I Missed Dreaming of Boobs.

By: The Dude on the Right
At first I was going to blog about going to see the Chicago Cubs play yesterday, how it was cool to see the flyovers because the Air & Water Show is in town, and how my friends and I were actually on TV during the broadcast. But partially since I haven’t been able to dub the video yet as proof we were on TV, but more because I sort of feel duped, or at least stupid, so I thought I would write a little about Garth Brooks.

You might be thinking something right now like "Garth Brooks?  Isn't he retired?" to which I would reply, "So I thought," but it started last night, when I finally got home from the Cubs' game and checked my Google homepage.  It has some links to RSS feeds I read, and one was from the Cleveland Plain Dealer mentioning Garth preparing a comeback, "a new three-disc album, and, quite possibly, a concert tour."  It mentioned a press conference at this morning.  So I go to the web site and sure enough, there is a header stating "You've heard the rumors, now get the answers.  Straight from Garth Brooks."

For whatever reason I totally bought into a blurb, in a blog, from a newspaper in Cleveland, OH, and quickly posted an entry at our sister-site, rumoring about a tour.  Then I went to bed with visions of Garth putting out an unprecedented release of new material, going back on tour, and dragging our staff member Trash to another concert and press conference where she can stare at his butt.

So, I woke up this morning, didn't get myself a gun, but I did do some more internet searching wondering about this wondrous announcement.  I checked Billboard, checked CMT, checked here and there and everywhere, but there didn't seem to be any "surprise" announcements.  And as my morning was progressing I had two options:  Sit around and wait for Garth's press conference, supposedly to be carried online, at 11:45AM my time, or go and see "Superbad."  Thank God I went to see "Superbad."

After laughing a lot in the theater I got back home, eager to see news of the press conference on the Garth Brooks web site.  Nothing, it still just showed the announcement of a press conference (figured they would at least have a replay link somewhere).  No headlines on Yahoo, nothing new on Google, then I went to the site to see if they had anything, but there wasn't any new news on their homepage, either.  I remembered they had a forum area, surely something has to be listed there, and finally I found out that Garth Brooks squashed most of the visions that were dancing in my head the night before.

Now, although the Cleveland newspaper blog wasn't exactly wrong, from what I have found out Garth will be releasing a "box" set called "The Ultimate Hits" which will include 30 old songs you probably own, and four new songs, with the first single being "More Than a Memory."  The box will also include a DVD featuring 33 videos of the 34 songs in the box.  Garth said he doesn't plan on touring but will promoting the bejesus out of the thing, and from what most of the Planet Garth posted said, Garth is looking hot as ever, looking to have lost a good deal of weight.

With the news announcement, and being selfish I will put this out to Garth:

Dear Garth,
I know you are loving spending time with your daughters, and with Trisha, but if you ever wanted to tour, and give your girls an experience of their lifetime, you may not have a better time than now.  Right now your daughters are at that age when you still have a little bit of control, and if you took them on tour with you, especially with a double bill with Trisha, you could pull off that world tour that lets them see the world, in ways they could never imagine, all under the protective watch of their Dad.  They get to see the world, we get to see, again, one of the greatest concert performers of all time, your daughters get to spend your money buying lots of stuff around the world (oh, wait, scratch that last remark), and they get introduced to some of the safer ways to experience the world rather than finding out, in their late teens or early twenties, their ways to experience the world.  Yes, this is sort of selfish of me, because I would love to see you in concert again, but I'm just throwing it out there for you, because unlike the McGraw kids, your daughters are old enough to forever remember a tour with you.
The Dude on the Right

P.S.  I'll still buy "The Ultimate Hits," because I'm a fan, but damn, I miss you man.

And so, letter to Garth aside, I feel bummed that I let myself get roped into the wind of internet rumor, about a tour, and 30 new songs.  I should have done a little bit more internet searching before going to bed last night so that visions of the girl with nice boobs behind me at the Cubs' game danced in my head rather than that vision of Garth touring, but then again, at a Garth concert, there are lots of girls with nice boobs.  Garth, please give me a three disc set of new material (I've got some songs if you want) and a new tour, rather than a box set of old stuff, and only four things that are new.  You know what, as I think about it, never mind - I don't have daughters and I don't have a wife - I guess I can't understand.  Wait a minute, that's a country song, and it's mine, unless, Garth, you want ...

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

What's New? A Podcast of: Cornhole v. Bean Bag, A Happy Haircut, and Chicago Air & Water Show Advice.

For this podcast The Dude on the Right is a little sad because he won't be seeing the Chicago Air & Water Show but will, instead, be seeing the Chicago Cubs. He hopes The Cubs don't implode against the St. Louis Cardinals, but at least he got a nice haircut. He also shares his tips for the best viewing of the Air & Water Show, which he won't be going to see, but to capitalize on his suggestions you have to have Friday off. And, oh yea, he ponders "Bean Bags for Breast Cancer" vs. "Cornholing for Breast Cancer."

What's New? A Couple of CD Reviews of Aerosmith and Bruce Dickinson.

By: The Dude on the Right
In the slow progression of my “All of The Dude’s CDs” project, I sometimes use it as a crutch to add filler when I get some brain cramps and can’t write. Such was today, when I intended to do a full review of Bon Jovi’s latest CD, “Lost Highway,” but had too many clichés in my head and I really didn’t want to include them in the review, and for the life of me, I couldn’t come up with the opening line for the review. That is sometimes the hardest part for me.

In any case, today I posted some quick reviews of “Pump” from Aerosmith, and “Accident of Birth” by Bruce Dickinson. The Aerosmith CD brought me back to some of the times I have reviewed their concerts, and they so much kick ass, and although not an Iron Maiden fan, I can respect what Bruce Dickinson does.

As I look to get back into more music coverage for the web site I guess I really should get back into the groove of reviewing all of the CD’s I own, and getting back to seeing concerts, things I have missed in my life for a while.

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

What's New? A Podcast of: Stu & The Dude's Weekend Wrap-Up! Being Late Etiquette, "Rush Hour 3," A White Trash Picnic, and More.

For this podcast of Stu & The Dude's Weekend Wrap-Up!, The Dude on the Right had a pretty boring weekend, seeing "Rush Hour 3" and cleaning his fish tank. Stu Gotz, though, got to go on what he calls a "White Trash Picnic" in his new, used RV. The Dude also questions Stu on proper etiquette when you are running late, Stu has his idea of how the late-ee should make it up to the wait-ee, and Stu is afraid he won't be able to control himself in a "Second Life," so he limits his porn to the normal internet, like most of us.

Oh, and they also talk about some TV stuff.

At Least Lorain, Ohio, Gave Me a Lazy Squirrel.

By: The Dude on the Right
I thought I would get an old blog thought off my plate, still relating to my last trip home to Lorain, OH, and it’s about a lazy squirrel.

Sure it's summer now, but my folks still like to feed the birds and even the neighborhood squirrels. I’ve tried to tell them that it’s not necessary when it’s warm, the birds might need water more than food so a birdbath might be in order, and that by feeding the squirrels all they are doing is making the critters lose their ability to scavenge for food and become lazy. Little did I know how lazy one squirrel had become until I was able to capture these pictures as he proceeded to plop himself (or maybe it's a herself, I didn't get that close of a look) on the ramp in front of our house. The kicker isn’t the fact that the squirrel was lazing around on our ramp, but mom tells me that many times when he’s eating the peanuts they leave, he doesn't even bother to eat in the normal squirrel eating position, sitting up, he just lies there on the ground, nibbling away. I've tried to tell my folks to quit spoiling the varmint, but since when will they listen to me :-)

Lazy squirrel aside, I thought about writing a little more about my hometown, but figured I would leave it at a funny picture of a squirrel because sometimes when I write about the old country it leaves me a little bummed because of the potential that is there. It has the location, with a lot of lakefront and a river, although it occurred to me lately, and I know it was probably necessary and helped the Ford plant, that whomever let the railroad build on prime real estate wasn’t a complete visionary for the area. But now as its infrastructure, including, as I've read, its sewer system, is falling apart, how their mayor is bailing on the town for a new job, thus leaving the city leadership in a bit of turmoil, how every time I visit it's still like driving on the moon, and it looks like the final dagger might be an imploding educational system, I wonder, after my parents someday pass on, if I'll ever come back to visit, even to see some old friends, and if I did, where I would stay since my mom told me the Spitzer hotel, where a vision of a casino danced in some heads, closed a couple of years ago?  At least the American Slovak Club still has a good fish fry, and if that goes away I'll know the city is really dying.

See, now I’m a little bummed. Enough writing.  Better look at those pictures of that lazy squirrel, again, to give me a smile.

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

What's New? A Movie Review of "Rush Hour 3."

For this movie review of "Rush Hour 3" The Dude on the Right had to get over the fact that Whammy was late before he could enjoy the film. Lucky for him there was a cab driver named George in the movie who got his spirits up so that The Dude could just let it be what it was. It's a "Rush Hour" movie, that's all you need to know.

What's New? A Podcast of: Seeing the Wienermobile, Chickening Out, And Obsessed with Tay Zonday and "Chocolate Rain."

For this podcast The Dude on the Right was happy to see the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, but was sad that he chickened out and didn't sing. He does sing, though, for this podcast, thanks to his latest obsession with Tay Zonday and his song, "Chocolate Rain." None of that is important though since Angelina Jolie has arrived in Chicago.

Budding Engineers Giddy as Little Schoolgirls, Thanks to "Calvin and Hobbes."

By: The Dude on the Right
I had a lot of topics I was thinking of blogging about today, and I suppose if I started at the beginning of today, through my typing now, you would have been enlightened by my thoughts on how I thought Barack Obama could have vaulted himself into "everyman" territory at yesterday's Democratic debate at a sweltering Soldier Field (let's just say "dressing for the weather" rather than "dressing Presidential" - hell Bill Clinton played a saxophone!), how Stu Gotz figures the New York City council is on the verge of over-goofing the Chicago City Council with their supposed proposal to ban the words "bitch" and "ho," and how I still get excited watching a Space Shuttle take off.

And so, instead of intellectual things, this blog is about a comic strip - "Calvin and Hobbes."

Sure, "Calvin and Hobbes" has been out of print for quite some time now, but thanks to the internet, and the site gocomics, I get to again relive the fun Calvin and his stuffed tiger, Hobbes, have, on a daily basis.  I guess I have Google to thank for this because it was when I set up my Google home page that I found the gocomics site, and sure enough, they had a "Calvin and Hobbes" RSS feed, providing me a link, everyday to a classic strip.

Now sure, that's not that compelling, but yesterday was one of the strips that even made budding engineers giddy as little schoolgirls.  I vaguely remember the day, it was back in college, at the fraternity house where I was a member, and Stevie gathered some of us together to test something seen in a comic strip.  I don't remember exactly who was there, it might have been Odie, Gumby, or maybe Shithead, along with myself, but I don't think Yoda, Tosh, Elmer, Markie, nor Hammy were around.  T.P. was probably back in New Jersey, Flange might have been at 7-11, and Laughing Boy was probably sleeping.  But there we were, some of us, with Stevie, in probably the 2nd head, to see if maybe the world's most brilliant engineer, Calvin, had stumbled onto something of utmost importance in the world of toilets and toilet paper.  And, as budding engineers, we had to test the scientific experiment over and over again, at different toilets, do some modifications to our own control groups, and sure enough, Calvin found a way to make young adults giddy as schoolgirls.

Not wanting to infringe on some copyright things I won't post the actual comic here, but if you want to do your own scientific experiment at home, thanks to Calvin and his stuffed tiger Hobbes, this link should take you to the comic that brought a giant smile to my face yesterday.  As stressful as college can be, something as simple as toilet paper can bring good times.  Good times.  Go ahead, try it at home, but depending on your toilet and toilet paper, be sure to have a plunger around, just in case.

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

What's New? A Podcast of: Stu & The Dude's Weekend Wrap-Up! "The Bourne Ultimatum," Debating - Gladiator Style in Chicago, Chocolate Rain, and Poo.

For this podcast episode of "Stu & The Dude's Weekend Wrap-Up!", The Dude on the Right saw a couple of movies, and Stu Gotz just tried to stay cool. Stu wanted to know if The Dude was going to cover the Democratic Debate at Soldier Field, and even though The Dude is skipping it the both of them have some grand ideas, including Gladiator fighting and wet t-shirt contests, that might make the debate more exciting. The Dude, also, has sounds of "Everything Comes Down to Poo" and "Chocolate Rain" running through his head, but sometimes poo and chocolate rain are one in the same.

What's New? A Movie Review of "Hot Rod."

For this movie review of "Hot Rod," The Dude on the Right saw a lot of potential wasted, and thinks Andy Samberg should stop trying to act like Will Ferrell. There were some funny moments for him, but he thinks some of those might be attributed to the fact that he hasn't grown up yet. Someday he'll act his age, but for now he laughed at some things during "Hot Rod" that if you have grown up, well, you might not find them funny.

What's New? A Movie Review of "The Bourne Ultimatum."

For this movie review of "The Bourne Ultimatum," The Dude on the Right loved it. It had everything you would expect after "The Bourne Supremacy" and more. Matt Damon has turned out to be the best choice for Jason Bourne, and since The Dude is a Julia Stiles stalker he was happy to see her having a larger role as Nicky Parsons. And he also laughed during the movie. For him, it was nearly perfect.

Dear Stu Gotz, I'm Sorry. It is My Fault for your Chubbiness, and for Introducing You to "Snyder of Berlin" and their Cheese Curls.

By: The Dude on the Right
Sure the Chicago Tribune and other news outlets reported that your weight might be directly related to the people you hang out with, and in a podcast last week I blamed my buddy, Stu Gotz, for my chubbiness.  Now I realize that I owe Stu an apology because he isn't the reason for my chubbiness, and in fact, I might be the reason for his.  I realized this after a two day battle with the best cheese curls in the world.

You see, a few weeks ago I took a trip to the old country, Lorain, OH, to visit the parents, and prior to my departure I mentioned to Stu how the best cheese curls in the world were sold there.  They are from "Snyder of Berlin" (not ever to be confused with "Snyder's of Hanover"), and they make, in my mind, the world's best cheese curls.  The cheesiness flavor is fantastic, above the flavor of many other brands, but what makes these cheese curls almost the best, unless you want total crispiness (in which case you could buy the "Cheese Crunch" version), is if you chomp down on them right away you get a nice, fluffy, crunchy feeling without seeming to tear up the inside of your mouth.  But what makes them the world's best cheese curls, and is the the ultimate joy in eating them, is that if you let your mouthful of cheese curls rest on your tongue, for a couple of seconds, they suddenly melt in your mouth, nearly disintegrating, with a giant explosion of cheesy flavor.  You swallow, easily, with minimal chewing, it's on to your next handful of curls, and if you are sort of careful, all of a sudden, you have eaten at least half the bag.  If you aren't paying attention, eight ounces with 1,360 calories of cheesy, airy, goodness has made its way into your belly.

Then last Tuesday I opened up the eight ounce bag of cheese curls I brought home with me, and by Wednesday night they were gone, and as I was joyfully licking the orange, cheesy crumbs from my fingers I realized Stu wasn't the blame for my chubbiness.  That didn't stop me from finishing the finger licking, but I realized that maybe I'm the reason Stu is chubby because as much as he puts me in some situations where proper dietary functions could be done if I just picked the right things off of the menu, and he might actually follow, I brought Stu a bag of the world's best cheese curls from Ohio, and he and Mama Gotz ate them, and liked them, and if I didn't bring home that bag of cheesy curl goodness, Stu wouldn't have 680 calories of goodness he has never known before.

So Stu, I am sorry for making you be chubby, and your being chubby isn't the reason for my being chubby because maybe I should set a better example and not tell you that, if you ever get a hankering for the world's best cheese curls, you can sort of order them online, but sadly they want cash upfront and it might take a week for the delivery.  But, if you want instant gratification for your cheesy-curl goodness, they're only about a five hour drive away, somewhere in Ohio.

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

What's New? A Podcast of: Prayers for Bridge Victims, Analyze a Horse Dream, Lame Cub Fans, and Funny Items in the Newspaper.

Since it is Thursday The Dude on the Right is flying solo for this podcast and is looking for some analysis help as to why he had a dream about a horse that went crazy, how he ended up with keepsakes from the jockey of the horse, and who might be his perfect girlfriend. He also has friends who are supposed Chicago Cubs' fans but questions their allegiance. The Dude also reads a newspaper column called "QT" in the Chicago Sun-Times, lets you know why, and might let Stu Gotz off the hook a little bit for his being chubby. He has so much to talk about, in under 15 minutes, but yet The Dude on the Right fits it all in. His perfect girlfriend would like that, at least in his dream.

Quick CD Reviews from: Neal McCoy, Sisters With Voices, Bruce Springsteen, Uncle Kracker, and Jewel.

By: The Dude on the Right
In continuing my project of reviewing all of the CD's I own, here come quick reviews from Neal McCoy, Sisters With Voices, Bruce Springsteen, Uncle Kracker, and Jewel.

I was a little surprised as I listened to "Pieces of You" from Jewel that I didn't like it as much as I seemed to remember I did, I need to get back on the Neal McCoy bandwagon because his CD review reminded me how much I like his music and his live show, and I did find it funny that Uncle Kracker put out a fantastic "radio friendly" song but the rest of the CD probably shocked the hell out of those that bought it.  Springsteen, well, I pretty much love almost everything he puts out, and Sisters With Voices doesn't hit a chord with me, but that not to say the CD is bad.

With this installment of reviewing all of my "older" CD's, I'm up to somewhere around 30ish CD reviews.  I've only got about 700 more to go.  I guess I better get listening!

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