The Dude on the Right could really use a nap before this podcast about, mainly, going to see “The Swell Season,” especially since getting back home was past his normal bedtime, but that’s not important because this podcast isn’t a full review of the show, just a quick blip at his still liking the folks from the movie “Once.” The Dude also talks about some BFF family stuff, he’s still watching “The Bachelorette,” and is bummed he missed the premier of “America’s Got Talent” where some dude did a great version of “Nessun Dorma” from Puccini’s Turandot, complete with Jerry Springer interrupting it, because, well, it’s on TV.
The Dude on the Right
I don’t know if Stu Gotz and I will get together for a “Weekend Wrap-up!” podcast tomorrow, but I do know my weekend was filled with, well, I actually realized that my Dude-pad is filled up with too much stuff! It’s almost like I need to create my own “eBay Store,” only selling stuff I own, but now that eBay and Paypal changed the way people get paid, I don’t know if it will actually be worth it, or if I should just throw the stuff out. Thinking about it, who would actually want a 3 1/2″ floppy containing my original outline for a movie I envisioned back in, like 1989ish, a pair of pants that are too big for me and are a little bit worn, or a “Southern Comfort” flag? Tonight, though, are the Academy of Country Music Awards, and it kicked off with Carrie Underwood putting nearly every other “American Idol” to shame, and Reba McEntire letting her writers bring on the funny, even making funny of Roger Clemens (the joke, it was funny).
Today, though, other than realizing I have too much stuff, I did accomplish DVD reviews of “Juno” and “Girls Just Want to Have Fun.” Now if I could only figure out what to do with a giant, foam, cowboy hat.
That’s it for this one!
I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
Stu Gotz had some questions about religion for this podcast episode of “Stu & The Dude’s Weekend Wrap-up!”, part of it related to priests, and part of it developed because of the news of Pope Benedict coming to the United States. Maybe Stu should forget about religion and just worry about the best way to raise the little Gotz’s. The Dude on the Right gives his two cents about religion, wonders about the dislike of “Scooby Doo,” but for The Dude, well, his weekend was filled with watching golf and a buttload of movies. Such is another weekend for Stu & The Dude.
So it’s been a little while since “Enchanted” hit the movie theaters, but he put the DVD in his Netflix queue and decided to review it. As a whole he really liked the movie, thought Amy Adams was perfect in the role of Giselle, and thinks it might also melt the hearts of dudes who only like movies where things blow up. Even if you don’t have kids you will probably still like it, and although most of the extras on the DVD he found boring, the “making of” stuff fascinated The Dude.
The Dude on the Right doesn’t ski, but after watching the DVD documentary called “Steep,” he does have an appreciation for the extreme skiers spotlighted during the movie. He also liked the scenery shot during the film, he also was fascinated by the use of cable cams to do some of the filming, and even though the documentary fascinated him, there is still no way he is slapping on thin strips of wood to the bottom of his feet.
