I’ve decided that, due to the DVD challenge, I should change Dissertation Tuesday to DVDuesday. I got the name DVDuesday from G4TV’s show “Attack of The Show.” Since I am trying to watch all 250+ movies within the year, I will watch at least 5 movies a week. I mean, come on, I can’t watch a movie on LOST Tuesdays, or Chuck Mondays. I also hope that DVDuesdays can become a forum for discussing films.
Yesterday I rolled a ‘D’, and I watched Danny Deckchair. Today I rolled another ‘D’, so I can’t decide between Die Hard, or Dr. No. Find out next Tuesday.
See you next week,

Over the weekend, Jane commented that we have so many DVDs (250 not counting concerts, TV Shows, Documentaries, or Stand-up DVDs), and we never watch any of them. So I’ve come up with a great idea. I’ve made a list of all our movies and Jane and I will watch a DVD every night until we watch them all.
Here are some of the rules:
1) TV shows, multiple part mini-series, and Documentaries will not be required viewing.
2) Movies will be chosen from random, using the Scattergories Die.
3) The Robot will be required to view all movies, Jane will be able to pick and choose which movies she will attend.
4) A post for the movie will be posted to my website within 5 hours of the viewing.
What do you think? I know I haven’t been able to keep up with my other posts but have faith in me that I will someday find a nice routine.
As a measure of good faith I have already selected the first of the many fine films. Tonight’s film will be:
If you want watch it on your own and let’s talk about it.
Until Next Time,

I know that I’ve been trying to be more constant with my blog posting, but due to my hectic schedule and LOST, blogging on Tuesdays isn’t even on my mind. So, yeah try not to keep your hopes up about a substantial Tuesday post.

31. My wife is a bit… fluffy, but I like her more now than when she was skinny.
I hope that Jane doesn’t take this the wrong way. During my dating years I dated a variety of women. Looking back I was always more content with the relationships when my dating partner wasn’t a stick. I think it was because they never complained about their weight. Why is it that whenever there is a skinny girl she never feels that she is skinny enough? That is a torturous mind game that I am glad to be over with. Don’t get me wrong, Jane is HOT, but since she had to put on some baby weight she has never looked hotter. She will also have you know that she weighs less now that before she was pregnant. Life is Awesome!
32. My favorite swear word is Bastard.
Yup, that’s it.
33. I secretly love Journey, Foreigner, Styx, Rush, and Blue Oyster Cult.
I guess it’s not a secret anymore. What can I say the music moves me. Besides I dare anyone to not sing when one of the following songs come on: Don’t Stop Believing, Urgent, Come Sail Away, Limelight, and Don’t Fear The Reaper. Don’t get me wrong, they don’t rank as high as The Beatles, or Coheed and Cambria for me, but they are in my top 50. (More on my Top 50 later.)
34. I enjoy the smell of my feet.
This might gross some of my readers out, but I’m not about to pull any punches. I don’t understand it either. I mean I know they don’t always smell like roses, but they aren’t as bad as Jane makes them out to be.
35. I love making my wife laugh; it takes a bit, because she has a very German sense of humor.
I try to make Jane laugh at least once a day. Most of the time she gives me a look like, “Are you serious?” or “I can’t believe you just said/did that!” Most days I am successful. About once or twice a week I get a sincere belly laugh outta her. Now about this German sense of humor. Some of you know the high quality of comedy TV shows that we view. 90% of the time she wouldn’t even crack a smile. I’ll talk with Jane after the show and she’ll say, “Oh that was a funny episode.” Thank you for sympathy in understanding my confusion.
Hope you enjoyed the post,
