With the weather here in Chicago not nearly as bad as it is in Indiana, Stu Gotz and I were easily able to record this episode of our “Weekend Wrap-Up!” podcast, and I tell Stu who won, in my opinion, in the battle between Jerry Taft v. Tom Skilling and their respective” last weekend” forecasts. Here’s a hint – I’m fascinated by Mr. Skilling’s weather maps, but I’m a bigger fan of The Taftman! Stu, meanwhile, had his own battle to report on, one that left him a little tipsy, a battle of beer as it would be, specifically a couple of Michigan brews, Bells v. Founders. We also discuss some box office battling that was done over the weekend, but with the crappy weather here in Chicago, we can’t really comment if any of the movies were andy good or not because we didn’t see them. Stu, however, was able to catch an Indiana Jones’ Marathon on cable, and oddly enough likes the scene with Indy, the nuclear blast, and a refrigerator.

With Christmas coming we do talk a bit about the season of gift giving, and I have to hip Stu to what a snapback hat is, made famous now thanks to the likes of Tyga and Chris Brown. We also talk a bit about movies coming out this weekend, but more about a movie coming out next summer, “Cowboys & Aliens,” with hit director Jon Favreau.

Stu won’t be around for next week’s podcast so if you might want to be a guest podcaster, feel free to shoot me an e-mail or comment, and, as always, thanks for listening!

Jerry TaftBoth Stu Gotz and I attended conventions this weekend, and during this episode of our "Weekend Wrap-Up!" podcast you can find out who had the better experience. Actually both of us seemed to have interesting experiences, with Stu at a diving convention where he did a presentation, helped out a dude who had problem with his own presentation, and then was pissed at said dude with the problem. Me, I met Maxine, the lady from the greeting cards, or at least a real-life representation of her, at a health fair that served hot dogs and pizza.

Various "conferences" aside, the weekend brought us some funky weather (I would like to personally thank weather man extraordinaire, Jerry Taft, who, thanks to being a Facebook friend, both ruined my weekend by telling me there would be no snow day for me today, but made me like a weather man who goes above and beyond to let us know the real weather), and a lot of watching of the Winter Olympics. Stu is now a fan of "Imaginary Bitches," I’m looking forward to "Cop Out," and Stu is sick and tired of being sick and might see a doctor to be less sick. All of that, and more! How do we do it!?!

Thanks for listening!

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