Missing the Award Shows, Movies and Movie Previews, and an iPhone WebClip.

By: The Dude on the Right
With this weekend coming to a close, and my having "The Screen Actors Guild Awards" on my TV, I realize that as much as I have been hating not getting new TV shows, other than the reality ones, I do miss the award shows that propagate the airwaves at the beginning of the year.  Why?  It's not the crap in between the awards because who really wants to hear bad jokes that can't offend anyone, but I do miss the speeches from those that win the awards, especially from those who are surprised they actually won the award.  We missed the drunken ones that might have happened during "The Golden Globe Awards," but damn, I hope the writers and the TV and whomever folks need to do it come to an agreement so that "The Academy Awards" can be the exploited award show we have grown to know and love, and maybe just give us that one speech, from one surprise winner, to make us dream (I'm cheering on Ellen Page).

On another note, this weekend saw me getting to see a couple of movies, namely "Rambo," which I really liked, and "Meet the Spartans," not so much.  I also got all of my movie previews up to date, thanks mostly to Tiger Woods making The Buick Invitational one of the most boring golf tournaments ever by beating the crap out of the competition, and the CBS announcers sounding like little schoolboys trying to call a golf outing, with one already pronouncing that this will be the year Tiger Woods wins the Grand Slam of golf and another (or maybe it was the same dude, I get them confused) upset because no one was able to get a birdie on the hole he was covering.  I know Tiger was so far ahead that it was nearly impossible for him to lose the tournament, but for goodness sake, can't you golf announcers control yourself?  He skipped Hawaii; it's only January; 2008 is the same length as any other year; with 320 days left, on any given day in 2008, Tiger might lose a tournament; but where is the dignity that is golf?  CBS folks, please go back and listen to your broadcast and boot the crap out of the broadcast of those who have already lost their minds in January.

And finally, on a last geek note, I have said before that I have an iPhone.  Fine, I'm a geek.  With the Macsomethingorotherconference, the world of Apple gave me another iPhone update, still leaving me without the ability to cut and paste, but that's another blog for another time.  What they did do, for the firmware update of 1.1.3, was give the iPhone the ability to add a WebClip to your iPhone.  Pretty much it means that on your iPhone homepage you can have a cute little graphic that when you touch it, well, it will open the web page associated with that WebClip.  Hell, that's too complicated to explain.  Look, if you have an iPhone, and you like our web site, Entertainment Ave!, go to our home page on your iPhone, click the "+" at the bottom of your iPhone screen and add us to your homepage.  We, unlike other non-cool sites, will have a cool icon on your iPhone that looks like our favicon, that when you touch it on your iPhone (and it also works for your iTouch, I think), instantly logs you onto Entertainment Ave!, keeping you informed of what's new.

Be smart, be safe, and if you like TV pray that the TV folks give in to the will of the writer folks, otherwise 2008 will be the year of reality, and who wants that, unless, of course, the dudettes on "Survivor: Where Ever They Are." are hot and get hotter with losing weight.

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