What's New? A Movie Review of "Ghost Town."

The trailers for the movie "Ghost Town" showed a kinda funny, kinda quirky movie, and for the most part it was, but The Dude on the Right does his best, during his movie review of "Ghost Town," to try and explain that funny and quirky are fine, but dragging things out during a movie is not.  The Dude liked the jokes, laughed a bit, but thought the movie was too long.  His BFF was a little more harsh in her rating for the movie, so it's probably a good thing for the movie folks, at least for The Dude's rating, that The Dude really likes a good dick joke, even if it was about a dead dude.

What's New? A Podcast of: Stu & The Dude's Weekend Wrap-Up! Lots of Movies, Sports, and Spelling Julio.

It's a Monday so it must be time for a new episode of "Stu & The Dude's Weekend Wrap-Up!" podcast, and right off the bat Stu Gotz decides to put a different spin on a romantic moment that The Dude on the Right and his BFF shared while having dinner at "Uncle Julio's Hacienda" in Chicago.  Stu tries to make up for it with a not-that-humiliating story about not hanging up his phone after leaving a message, but as the podcast goes on there is a lot of movie talk, with "Hoot," "Eagle Eye," "The Hammer," and "Ghost Town," being some of the topics.  There is also some talk about the new design of the Chicago Tribune, and the both of them discuss sports, especially since, in Chicago, it's been weird with the Chicago Bears beating the Philadelphia Eagles, the Chicago Cubs waiting for the post-season, and the Chicago White Sox needing to win things in the weirdest ways to keep the nightmare of a Cubs-White Sox "World Series" alive.

The Dude also does his impersonation of Tina Fey impersonating Sarah Palin, but, well, The Dude's not that good.

What's New? A Movie Review of "Eagle Eye"

Going into seeing this movie, The Dude on the Right pretty much figured he would have to suspend reality if he were to review "Eagle Eye" properly, and he tried to do as much.  He thinks Shia LaBeouf and Michelle Monaghan were okay, but liked Billy Bob Thornton a little bit more.  In the end, though, he wonders if the film people became infatuated with a couple of films, like "I, Robot," "War Games," "The Italian Job," and any other movie where cell phones and street lights can be controlled by computers.  The Dude was also bummed the poignant ending wasn't played out rather than the feel-good ending that made The Dude drop his rating 1/2 stars.  In the end, though, if you're looking for action-packed non-reality, go and see "Eagle Eye."  Escape from the financial crisis and realize that yes, computers might be the downfall of us all!

What's New? A Podcast of: Remote Control Madness, "Survivor: Gabon," and Who's to Blame?

The Dude on the Right is flying solo for this podcast, but that's okay, because his life is now in turmoil thanks to his buying a new T.V., and Canada.  It seems that getting a new T.V. also required getting a new cable box, and now his way-cool remote control isn't way-cool anymore because it needs some major reprogramming.  And as much as he can still control his T.V. viewing with 4 different remotes, and as much as he can now record 5 shows at one time, the success of the Chicago Cubs, and the impending doom of the Chicago White Sox, throws a small monkey-wrench into The Dude's viewing plans because sports are best watched live.

The Dude also had a nice weekend planned, but as things are in turmoil in the United States, in the end, it might just all be Canada's fault.  At least it was on "South Park: Bigger, Longer, & Uncut," a movie he didn't let The W.G.N. see when he was youngin.  Sometimes The Dude tries to be a good uncle.

What's New? A DVD Review of "Baby Mama."

Is "Baby Mama" a movie for the dudes?  Well, The Dude on the Right saw the movie in the theater, and now does his DVD review of "Baby Mama," and he still thinks most dudes will find it funny.  It's pretty obvious the dudettes will find it funny, because, well, it's about dudette stuff, and the dudettes could easily use this movie as an excuse to have a dudette posse party, watching a funny movie a lot of them can relate with, but hopefully their dude isn't really like Carl (the Dax Shepard character).

Tina Fey is on a roll, with her Emmy Award winning show "30 Rock," and if John McCain dies, leaving Sarah Palin as President, and then Sarah has a brain aneurism, Tina could actually be the next President of the United States, in disguise, much like Dave became the President in the movie "Dave," and we wouldn't even know it.  Wow, that last comment isn't even about the DVD "Baby Mama."  You know what, just rent the damn thing - The Dude on the Right says that it's funny.

What's New? A DVD Review of "I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With."

The Dude on the Right was going to save this review of "I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With" for a rainy day, just to get something posted, but right now he is so sucked back into the Fall TV season, well, it might as well be a rainy day.  So here is his posted review of the DVD, where more people than he can recognize are actually in this movie, but to name two, Jeff Garlin (duh, he wrote, directed and starred in it), and Steve Dahl (unless you live in Chicago you might say "Who?") have big or small parts, but hey, if you are a fan of Sarah Silverman, and want to see her in some slinky lingerie, this movie will probably be worth the rental, just to, well, see Sarah Silverman in slinky lingerie.

The Dude does find the movie funny, in terms of dialogue, but also thinks the movie drags a bit, even though he still thinks it's funny.  The Dude is really confused.

What's New? A Podcast of: Bears, Emmy's, T.V., TiVo, and No "Buddy Christ" Explanation.

The Dude on the Right is lonely, and flying solo for this podcast, and doesn't even explain to the audio world why "The Buddy Christ" is back where he belongs, at least in the world of The Dude on the Right.  He does, though, talk about his football team, the Chicago Bears, still sucking, how the Emmy Awards sucked, but the only thing infiltrating the mind of The Dude right now, other than wondering how his BFF will accept him into the fall season, is how he will be able to TiVo all of his favorite T.V. shows, especially since he now owns an HDTV.  On a Monday when The Dude could have probably used someone to talk to, namely Stu Gotz, especially to tell him about the secret to maybe relieving his congested nose during allergy season, well, The Dude is relegated to viewing television, on a crystal clear, high-def TV screen, yet wondering how to record "Survivor: Gabon" in high-def.

The Dude really needs to win the lottery.

What's New? Hurricane Ike talk with The W.G.N. gets decimated by the tornado that is The W.F.N.

The Dude on the Right just wanted a nice podcast with The W.G.N., maybe talking about Hurricane Ike that hit the Houston area, but then a tornado infiltrated the podcast, namely The W.F.N.  All of a sudden it was talk about graduating from high school, The Dude disrespecting The W.F.N., her wanting her own podcast, and well, just about anything else she wanted to comment about because that girl has things to say, and she damn well will do her best to make sure you hear it!

It was a fun diversion for The Dude, talking to The W.F.N., but with podcast time running down, it didn't leave too much time left for The Dude to converse with The W.G.N., but they did get in some sport's talk, some college talk, and yes, even some hurricane talk.

The W.F.N. definitely needs her own podcast platform, but The Dude just wonders if he'll be able to control her so he doesn't lose any advertisers.

What's New? A Movie Review of: "Burn After Reading."

The Dude on the Right is getting back into the movie going groove, and for this one he went to see "Burn After Reading."  He loved it, though not 5 starring loving it.  The Dude did like the laughs, the intrigue, and even the violence, once the movie started clicking on all cylinders after about the first 30 minutes of plot development. He thinks Brad Pitt did a great job as the dopey physical trainer, appreciates the creativeness (and maybe the magazine subscriptions) of Harry, played by George Clooney, but, in the end, who wouldn't do anything they can to get the money for some plastic surgery?

This is a Coen Brothers movie, so expect some Coen Brothers goofiness, but let the first part set things up for you, and then, as The Dude on the Right did, you can just enjoy the rest of the ride, especially realizing that Harry just wants women to be happy.

What's New? A Podcast of: Stu & The Dude's Weekend Wrap-Up! Rain, Movies, TV, and A Loud Starbucks.

Stu Gotz somehow convinced The Dude on the Right that they should record their "Weekend Wrap-Up!" podcast at a Starbucks, and even though the music was loud, it did make for some nice, background music, even if it distracted The Dude.  The both of them, though, overcame the background music to talk about the boatloads of rain that were dumped on the Midwest over the weekend, they both talk a bit about Hurricane Ike and the people who want to be rescued in Galveston now that the storm is gone, and hey, why not critique Tina Fey playing Sarah Palin on "Saturday Night Live?"  Sure, they both liked Tina, didn't think Michael Phelps did that great on SNL, Stu's got questions about the ending of "3:10 to Yuma" while The Dude thinks Stu might piss his pants during one scene of "Burn After Reading," but a podcast with Stu and The Dude wouldn't be complete without some talk about TV, and The Dude on the Right needs to quit reviewing his visits to church.  The Dude does give a shout-out to his BFF, if you followed The Dude's Twitter you would have been texted to see Carlos Zambrano of The Chicago Cubs get a no-hitter, and if you're looking for Sarah Silverman in skimpy underwear, go ahead and rent "I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With."  Just don't ask The Dude what a "Hoagie Shack" is because he couldn't remember the term during his "review" while talking with Stu.

What's New? A Podcast of: I Hate Ike, Getting Shot, Forgetting "The Goonies," and Remembering The World Trade Center

The Dude on the Right is flying solo for this podcast mostly because he didn't want to invite The W.G.N. to be a guest podcaster, thereby delaying The W.G.N.'s getting out of Dodge, or at least Houston.  The Dude realizes he missed his opportunity for "I Hate Ike" buttons and bumper stickers, but is happy that he only got shot in a dream, by a dude who looked like Chunk from the movie "The Goonies."

The Dude also does some reflecting on the anniversary or September 11th, remembering that he was actually at the top of The World Trade Center in 1985, and is kind of sad that Presidential politics has come to sound bites about a "lipstick on a pig" comment that has been around for years, rather than the actual issues we really care about.  The Dude isn't perfect by not joining in with the stupidness of it all, but hey, he's only a dude.

What's New? A Podcast of: Bears Win!, A Dead TV, The MTV VMA's, and no Stu Gotz.

This should be a "Weekend Wrap-Up!", but The Dude on the Right is flying solo for this podcast because Stu Gotz decided to see Mickey Mouse. Actually, it was mostly Mama Gotz and the LIttle Gotz's that wanted to see Mickey, but, in any case, The Dude is left to lament about his TV woes by himself now that it is confirmed that his TV is really dead. And as The Dude contemplates purchasing a new TV, he sort of wonders why he should, especially since he fell asleep while watching the Chicago Bears beat the Indianapolis Colts, it was probably easier to watch the Cleveland Browns lose on a smaller TV, and there really didn't seem to be a reason to watch the MTV Video Music Awards, especially since Britney Spears wasn't a train wreck this year, she was just inserted into a lame skit. And yea, blah, blah, blah, the joke is old, but why is MTV still having a Video Music Awards ceremony when they don't show many videos anymore?

The Dude's TV: R.I.P.

By: The Dude on the Right
Maybe it's just a fuse, maybe it was God telling me I shouldn't watch John McCain's speech at the Republican Convention, but yesterday, just as I was getting ready to settle on to my couch to see how John McCain will save the world in a better way than Barack Obama (because that is what these conventions are all about, aren't they?), I went to turn on the TV in my living room, and, well, it didn't turn on. Because I couldn't believe it wouldn't actually turn on, of course I kept pushing the power button about twenty times, both on the remote and on the TV itself, and still nothing happened. What to do, what to do? I fished the TV power cord from out of the power strip, went to my garage to get an extension cord, plugged it into an outlet I knew was working, plugged the TV into the extension cord, and wouldn't you know it, my TV still didn't turn on.

Now I know that my TV had been making funny noises a few weeks ago, but those noises, surprisingly, had gone away, and things were working well.  I figured my TV was just going through a phase, but sadly, it looks like that phase was "Screw you, you 'America's Got Talent' watcher. I just can't take it anymore, and since you continue to watch crap shows like "America's Got No Talent," "Dancing with Loser Stars," and "Yup, These People are Fat," or something like them, I'm done. I just can't take it anymore.  I'll show you!"

Yup, I think my TV just couldn't stand my TV viewing habits, and with a new TV season upon it, and my forcing it to show another season of the Chicago Bears while the Chicago Cubs totally collapse during September, it felt it was actually doing me a favor by shorting itself out, thereby making me realize that there might actually be life without television.

But what my TV didn't realize was that its days were numbered anyway, what with him being an old tube, non High-Def television, and as I know The Chicago Bears will be in the Super Bowl in 2009 (I am so optimistic right now), I was looking to kick him to the curb anyway, or maybe put him in my bedroom, especially when those great sales came around before the big game.  I'm thinking, though, that I still might wait for those big sales, in the meantime moving my basement TV to the living room, and putting my really old TV that is still in the garage in the basement, even if the color is all discombobulated on that old TV.  Who cares if green grass is red, anyway?

In the meantime, maybe I'll put my broken TV on eBay.  If Governor Sarah Palin can try to sell an airplane on eBay, maybe some sucker, I mean handyman, I mean handyperson, will want a broken TV.  At least I should be able to make some money on the shipping and handling!

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

What's New? Stu & The Dude's Weekend Wrap-Up! Cheese Curls, Google Chrome, A Favorite Shirt, and More!

Stu and The Dude survived their respective Labor Day Weekends, and for this "Weekend Wrap-Up!" podcast they both show that hanging with a BFF, and doing some painting, can really be exciting.

Okay, maybe the more exciting parts of this podcast are about The Dude on the Right getting his BFF addicted to Snyder of Berlin Cheese Curls, and Stu Gotz loving his favorite shirt, but don't be mad at them.  At least they don't try to discuss Sarah Palin, churches wasting money, or the difference between sluts and whores.

You know what, go ahead and be mad at them.
