Our man with the literal connections, Chalupa from Lebowskipodcast has turned off his DVD player and curled up with a lovely piece of class — Adam Bertocci’s “Two Gentlemen of Lebowski.” To read or not to read, that is the question. (Hint: the answer is “read.”)
Having started the first of (what we hope to be) many Lebowski-themed retail outlets in the world, we were eager to chat with proprietor Roy Preston of the Little Lebowski Shop in NYC. If you’re in the area, go down and help support this zesty enterprise.
The Big Lebowski’s not the only chip off the old Tao. Highly commended artist Ren Adams holds forth on Taoism in the movies and is looking for input for her second installment of the analysis. Please slide your suggestions down, Misters and Mses Lebowski.
Adam Bertocci’s “Two Gentlemen of Lebowski” (The Big Lebowski re-imagined as a Shakespeare play) will be published by Simon and Schuster in October. Way to go Bertocci! We interview the knave-gazer himself to find out more about what’s going on in the world of Lebowskispeare.
The band “Banquets” has allowed the Dudespaper exclusive right to stream their new album “This is Our Concern, Dude”. They’re Big Big Lebowski Fans and though the songs don’t reference the film, they do in fact throw rocks tonight!
If, as a recent Boston Globe article suggests, making mistakes is what makes us smart, then the Dude sure is a smarter feller than ourselves. It all has to do with different ways of reasoning about things. And there’s no reason, no fucking reason, we shouldn’t all reason a bit more like the Dude does.
Here it is, the in-depth review you’ve all been waiting for: Our take on The Big Lebowski XXX Parody. Our roving reporter Rev. Crash Winfield is back from a long hiatus to report on the anticipated film. As is his tendency, Crash gets a bit philosophical about the whole thing. But he ties all the strands together in the end.
Chalupa chimes in with a suggestion for a good article on the history of “Dude.” If you define it, it is no dream. There may be no cooler word in history. Except maybe “cool” itself. But that’s not our opinion, man.
While trying to come up with a Lebowskian board game, we stumbled across as site that has found a beautiful tradition of pre-Lebowski games – from “Log Jam” to “A Line in the Sand.” You’re goddamn right we’re living in the past.
Ever noticed how many parallels there are between Jeff Bridges’ latest film Crazy Heart and our sacred source, The Big Lebowski? We have. Maybe we’re a bit obsessive, but if you hallucinate it, dude, it is no dream. Got any more strands for old Dudeism’s head? Let us know.
