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.
Listen up, you might dig something! The Dudeist music festival, “Dudestock” is coming to York, UK! In this article you can listen to songs from the bands for free! If you’re anywhere near York, UK this June 18, make sure to attend this far out event for charity. Be there, man!
The second annual Day of the Dude was a massive achievement! Thousands of Dudeist Priests all over the world observed our high holiday by doing very little at all. Proud we are of all of them. Enjoy some of the videos and photos of people takin er easy in sacred style.
In honor of our high holiday, the Day of the Dude this March 6th, we’re giving away 100 copies of Adam Bertocci’s Two Gentlemen of Lebowski. Far out! Celebrate with Dudeists all over the world by doing whatever you like. Bowl, drive around, the occasional acid flashback, have a white russian with friends, burn a J, meditate on your rug, take a bath. How mel-low can you go?
Dudeism’s first big music festival is right on track with a new website and some media coverage. The Grand Old Dude of York could use some help though. Feel like lending a handout or a hand? Listen to the Dude’s story!
Rev. GMS brings us the piece de resistance of his three-piece series on the Zen Buddhist Symposium he attended – the part where he describes hanging out with Jeff Bridges and his family. A brush with dudeness, indeed. The Big LeBridgeski! Of course, GMS found him as Dudely as everyone else who meets the good man, and thurrah.
Happy Kerabotsmas to all, and to all a good night sweet prince! On this holy Dudeist holiday (December 13th) we celebrate the memory of Theodore Donald (“Donnie”) Kerabatsos, friend to Dude and Walter and a shining example to us all of why we should remain out of our element from time to time. He was the walrus, and one of us.
Too lazy to go to the Burning Man festival? Then hop in your Ford Torino this Saturday and drive on over to Dockweiler State Beach in Los Angeles for a much more easygoing, Dudeish and totally free event. Watch the sun set with some other Dudeists and watch as a Dudeist Priest burns a D.
Rev. GMS is back again to share more of his experiences at the Zen Peacemakers’ symposium back in August. He shares behind-the-scenes anecdotes and gives a shout out to some very Dudely folks who helped make the event a serious (and not so serious) achievement.
