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


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

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!

Seeing the Wienermobile, Chickening Out, and Obsessed with Tay Zonday and “Chocolate Rain.”


The Dude on the Right

a day when you need a smile there is nothing that might bring yourself a smile
quicker than the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile.  It was there, at the grocery
store where I needed to pick up some grocery type stuff up, so I took some
photos with my iPhone.  But as happy as seeing the

made me, at the end of the day I know I chickened out, because
the giant wiener was there as a promotion for the
"Sing the Jingle"
competition, and I didn’t sing the jingle.

And I was also sad that I figured
out how I would have actually sang the "Bologna Song," thanks to
Tay Zonday and
his singing "Chocolate Rain," later, as I was driving back to the dude-pad, and
although I didn’t sing it for the Oscar Mayer wiener folks, I sing it for you

during this podcast

Wienermobiles and "Chocolate Rain" aside, here in
Chicago, though, Angelina Jolie’s showing up in town seems to be the most
important thing in the world right now because the

Chicago Sun-Times
said so.

So this podcast gives you a plethora of things,
like the Oscar Mayer wiener song, my singing, Tay Zonday talk, and Angelina
Jolie.  What more could you want?

Thanks for listening.

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


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
With Voices
Uncle Kracker
, and

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!

What’s New? A CD Review of “The Best Damn Thing” from Avril Lavigne.

The Dude on the Right wasn’t sure if he would review “The Best Damn Thing” from Avril Lavigne, but since the web re-design is finished, and he doesn’t give a crap about the Baseball All-Star Game, tonight seemed to be the perfect time. He also likes the second release from the CD, namely the ballad “When You’re Gone,” and has always been a fan of teenish, dudette pop. With that he doesn’t care about the lawsuit from “The Rubinoos” because he thinks “Girlfriend” is a better song.

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.

What’s New? A Podcast of: Go Bears? Prince was Great, has a Big Guitar, and The Dude Roots for Jessica from Survivor.

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.

December is a Clusterf&%^. At Least I Posted Some Short CD Reviews of Springsteen and some Presidents.


The Dude on the Right

I won’t come out and say that I’m totally disliking December, but I’m stuck in a
quandary of getting things done, blowing things off, or just not giving a damn. 
The holiday season just seems to keep getting in the way of getting things done,
unless, of course, I would win the Lotto.

Case in point:  I wanted to do
a podcast tonight, but it didn’t come together.  I’ve been redesigning "The
Movie Theater
" archive area, to make it more functional, and thought I had
it all together.  The redesign looked fine in Explorer, but for a reason I
eventually figured out, the Firefox browser side looked crappy.  So tonight
I think I got the basic redesign of "The Movie Theater" archive section looking
okay, and that cut into the podcast.

Then there were all of the topics I would
like to write about in my last blog, which, my sister is probably right, I won’t
ever get to.  And who wouldn’t want to hear about Farmers vs. Dudettes in
Short Skirts.

Stu Gotz and I started our work on our next "Stu
& The Dude Reviewin’ the Movies for You!
" for the Mel Gibson flick,
Apocolypto, but knowing me and my OCD, or ADD (I always get them messed up), it
might take a little while to get it posted.  I figured for at least
tonight, I would post a couple of more CD’s I own reviews, "The
" from Bruce Springsteen, and the self-titled CD from "The
Presidents of the United States of America.

At least I got a couple of
things accomplished today.  How about you?

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

What the Hell is the “Chicken Noodle Soup Dance” Anyway, and Some New, Quick, CD Reviews.


The Dude on the Right

Blog-wise, I was going to get on this weird rant about a new dance craze I heard
about on the radio, but as I tried to do some internet research I became so
utterly confused I had no idea where to go with it.  The dance craze is
something called "The Chicken Noodle Soup Dance" and it’s based on some wacky
song by some dude named DJ Webstar.  I tried to watch some YouTube videos
about it, but those things are all over the place, checked out the

Wikipedia definition
but that was no help, so I gave up on "The Chicken
Noodle Soup Dance" because it doesn’t seem to have nearly the structure as the "Chicken
"  I suppose I really need to see this dance done at a wedding to
see if it really is the dance craze it is supposed to be.

Being done with my
"Chicken Noodle Soup Dance" research I decided I would at least get something
posted, so I’ve got a couple of new "All of the Dude’s CD’s" entries done. 
With that there are quick CD reviews of "Fairweather
" from Hootie & the Blowfish, "Tomorrow
" from Al Jarreau, and "Always
On My Mind
" from Willie Nelson newly posted on the website.

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

What’s New? A CD Review of “Face the Promise” by Bob Seger.

For this CD review of “Face the Promise” by Bob Seger, The Dude on the Right loves to hear midwest rock and roll, and Bob Seger does it with the best of those he remembers. For you teens who like classic rock, check out this from one of those whose songs you probably listen to.

What’s New? More of the Dude’s CD’s: Richie Sambora from Bon Jovi, and The Nerds.

The Dude on the Right is still, and this will probably become a long “still,” trying to review, or at least give a quick review, of all of the CD’s he has. Two more are posted, both which he loves. One is from a band called The Nerds, a band he first saw at Joe Pops in New Jersey. That CD is “Poultry in Motion.” The other is “Stranger in This Town” from this dude named Richie Sambora. You might know his name if you pay attention to the tabloids, but you probably know him more from his playing guitar in Bon Jovi. Yea, he’s that dude.

The Dude on the Right would still love to see Richie Sambora, doing his stuff, at a small, blues bar, and he would probably even pay for it. So, Richie, if you do a solo jaunt, The Dude on the Right would love to review it.
