This March 6 is the Day of the Dude and also our (sort of) 10 year anniversary. So we’re running a contest! Winners will receive a signed copy of our book, The Abide Guide.
Rev. Austin “Auz” Lawrence sends us this report on the fun and games, as well as a healthy dose of Dudeist philosophy to be had at the first ever LebowskiCampFest. Attendees channelled their inner-Dude, and in the spirit of abiding had a very unigue camping experience. LebowskiCampFest seems to have been a fantastic success, Rev. Auz and friends are true achievers, and proud we are of all of them.
The Dudely Lama, Oliver Benjamin has created a life size painted elephant sculpture that looks like The Dude to help raise money for Asian elephant conservation. Come check it out at Doheny State Beach in California this Saturday and hang with the Lama.
We received an amusing letter from compeers-in-arms at slowdownnow.org. Apparently our meet-and-greet with them was much obliged. Shame we don’t remember much from it. Probably smoked too much Thai stick…
Rev. GMS has been participating in Bernie Glassman‘s Stone Soup Project to feed the needy in a very dudely way. It’s a great way to make charity more fun and friendly. With his pal Jeff Bridges, Bernie is helping to feed the world with food and humor.
Lots of things take their names from The Big Lebowski: rock bands, restaurants and books. But now Lebowski even lends its name to biological science! Those bugs really tied the room together, man.
Vagina. The word itself makes many men uncomfortable. Some will even go as far as banning a politician from speaking after using the term in public. This may be the land of the free, but when it comes to things sexual, the United States is the land of the very uptight. Rev. GMS takes a thoughtful look at the messy implications.
Rev. GMS makes an impassioned plea to get people to stop minding if he does a J. And we should join him. This aggression will not stand, this aggression against kush weed! Just reading this sober argument against pharmalogical fascism will give you a contact high.
Help preserve The Big Lebowski by politely asking Donna Ross (firstname.lastname@example.org) at The National Film Registry to preserve the movie, down through the generations, across the sands of time. Don’t let it die face down in the muck! Tell all your friends! This omission will not stand!
After slowing his career down a bit lately, The Arch Dudeship Dwayne Eutsey is back with a Dudespatch on the Occupy Wall Street (and the World) movement currently unfolding in England and France and other places where people are wondering “Where’s the money LeBankskis?”, among other things. Time to shed some Dude light on the whole what have we!
