the-day-of-the-dude-2011 Hey Dudes! It’s that time of year again. Our high holiday is upon us again on Sunday, March 6th, in which we say to the entire world…

Just take it easy, mankind!

The Day of the Dude is probably the laziest religious holiday around, high in the running for laziest worldwide. How do you celebrate it? By getting as relaxed as possible. So get together with friends, arrange a party, or go bowling, but under no circumstances should you do anything that causes any stress. Unless, of course, you dig stress, in which case who the fuck are we to tell you not to freak out a little.

So this year, try to gather your Dudeist (or Infidel) friends together for a nice relaxing time. Either that, or just hang out and read a book or take a long bath with a tape of whale sounds. The important thing is that you use The Day of the Dude to honor the spirit of our holy avatar by enjoying some well-executed attacks of the chillax. Please send us photos of whatever it is you end up doing (or not doing) so we can post it here for a recap of the blessed event.

two-gents The "Two Gentlemen of Lebowski" Giveaway!

In honor of the 2011 Day of the Dude, we’re giving away 100 copies of Adam Bertocci’s far out masterpiece of Shakespearean Dudeism, Two Gentlemen of Lebowski.

All you’ve got to do is this: fill out a form and tell us why you dig The Big Lebowski. The beauty of this plan is its simplicity. We hope to collect all the answers into a book or put it on one of our website’s pages, or use it for further study at Dude University.

There’s a bunch more going on as well: Our new book The Abide Guide is coming out soon, the Kindle ebook version of The Dude De Ching is available. And there’s lots more around the corner.

dayofthedudeshirtAlso, if you act fast, you still have time to order Day of the Dude 2011 tee shirts and stuff which will help sanctify the day. Of course, your old bathrobe will do just fine.

Make us proud, Dudes. Take ‘er easy for all the sinners of the world. It’s the modest holiday which is your charge, the most modestly priced festival of laze.

    The Big Lebowski is awesome because everything goes bogus and Jeff stays so fckn calm about it in he’s legendary outfit! And that makes him a great rolemodel! Now lets enjoy a nice white russian

    So why is this date not on The Dudeist Calendar of Events?
    AND!! How about March 5th, The Day Donny Died? That should be on the Dude Calendar as well.

  5. The Archdudeship on February 24th, 2011 4:10 pm

    I dig the video, Rev. Cakebelly!

  6. The Dudespaper on February 24th, 2011 6:36 pm

    oops forgot to put it on the calendar. thanks for the heads up cck.

    we need to showcase cakebelly’s stuff somewhere. so many cool artistic commendables.

  7. c.c.keiser on February 24th, 2011 8:37 pm

    That’s for sure Dudespaper dude! Cakebelly is a major video artist talent!
    I dig his style dude!

  8. Cakebelly on February 25th, 2011 9:05 am

    Thanks for the Dudely vibes, guys but it’s all down to other Dudes’ work – clips are taken from Fire Dude Dave’s “Alien Bubbles” vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8BUJTPnpJM
    and CC’s “The Dude Abides”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=szjfQgHn6eA
    Both Dudely videos in their own right, so to speak.

    No need for a showcase – The Abideist Channel is there for any Dude who wants to knock a slide-show / video together. Perhaps they’ll feel moved to create their own Dudely Channel.

    Dudes in need of inspiration may like to consider knocking a promo video together for the upcoming Dudestock (York, UK). Some kind Dude may like to put a link up under this missive. Cheers, abide. :-)

  10. Cakebelly on February 25th, 2011 11:57 am

    I never laid a finger on her!

  11. Doctor Joe on February 26th, 2011 12:15 pm

    I’m in it for the T-Shirt.

  12. Dude Jaway on February 26th, 2011 4:00 pm

    We’ll try to remember to mention The Day of The Dude on our TV show Moments Of Awareness with Peace & The Dudes, on every Saturday night from 10-11pm MT. There is a live stream and we take phone calls live from any Dudes or Dudesses who want to call and talk about anything dudely or un-dudely. We love to just take it easy and hang out with people. I do crayon drawings with my son Dude Jaway Jr. We’ll celebrate The Day of The Dude the day after the show, so…ah shucks..there I go rambling again…Take it easy everyone…Love, Dude Jaway

    Here is a link to download the Dudestock 2011 video: let’s help out the ole Arch Dude of York and spread the video around (FB page, twitter, MySpace – what-have-you). Assistance is still required with the Dudely project; help do a little – it may mean a lot: http://www.mediafire.com/?6zr9dx2zf74ioz3

  15. John on February 27th, 2011 2:21 pm

    Lebowski speaks wonders to me. Its what me and my best friend quote and talk about almost every time we hang out. It proves that good things come to those who take it easy. Its not just a film its a fucking life style,man.

  16. Hammer on February 28th, 2011 6:47 am

    Dude, like I meed a TShirt, man. Like before June… my bathrobe is wearing thin!

  17. Mojo on February 28th, 2011 11:19 am

    Dude I love the DOTD idea, but we need this sort of holiday to be more in the summer here in the USA for us dudeists to really enjoy. Is there another Dudeoliday in the summer months?

  18. Amanda on February 28th, 2011 1:13 pm

    Man, I don’t have to tell you why I dig the Dude. I just do, alright, man?

  19. CCinRI on February 28th, 2011 8:09 pm

    ommmmmmmm…Dude, it is.

  20. Count Fartula on March 2nd, 2011 6:02 am

    Dudes, I’ll be taking it easy, day one of 7 at a beach front front condo in Kona.

  21. jaxun on March 3rd, 2011 3:06 pm

    I sat and I thought, and I sat some more. It seems to me the best day for this holy sacred event is March 15th. Because the Dude abIDEs! Get it, IDEs of MARCH?!?

    Just another guy with an opinion, man.

  22. Len the Zen on March 3rd, 2011 3:46 pm

    Smoke a What?

  23. chris on March 3rd, 2011 8:56 pm

    unfortunatly i am stuck working on the day but will be slingin cheesecake in chestnut hill, ma, witha smile. i will be as relaxed as i can get away with without getting fired… so if you live in massachusetts, come and get waited on by a dudeist priest. what better way to relax and enjoy the day of the dude?

  24. aden on March 3rd, 2011 10:17 pm

    Fuck Nihilists! I’m almost 17, and the big lebowski has taught me more about life than any disney movie will ever teach a child. The dude and cheech and chong that is. It has taught me how to keep on keepin on, great taste in music, or an extension to my music becuase my parents are Dead Heads, and most of all a love for bowling.

  25. Damo Boyd on March 4th, 2011 3:12 am

    All hail the dude, or not if your too tired. I just found out that parts of the website are banned on my school’s network for having “Non-traditional religions and Occult and Folklore” I just thought that this was highly offensive and was about to complain when I noticed that my room was still tied together.

  26. The Dudespaper on March 4th, 2011 4:12 am

    jeez, sounds like a bunch of fascists. what kind of school do you go to Damo? obviously not a school that invites free inquiry. condolences!

  27. The Archdudeship on March 4th, 2011 4:31 am

    Yeah, Damo…where are you? China? Corproate America? :-)

  28. Rev. Ed C on March 4th, 2011 6:47 am

    Sounds like the sort of bullshit we have here in the UK (and your name smacks of england, Damo). I can see why they’d not want people pissing about at work on school instead of doing what they “should be doing” at that time, but to list it in such a fascist sounding catagory is offensive to our beutiful tradition.

    That being said, we have no rights or recognition for our ‘rites’ in the UK, which is a shame, considering the liberal approach we have with out secular society and the dudeliest side of protestenct christianity that is the Anglican church.

    I think this matter of site-blocking and lack of official recognition should definately go into the Dudarchy in the UK project. Maybe if you, you know, come through your experiances intact, and do like here in the UK you’d be happy to make the contribution, as a first-hand sufferer of those socio-political theocratic injustices (or not, as the mood takes you :)

  29. Damo Boyd on March 4th, 2011 11:44 am

    I’m from Northern Ireland, a grammar school which although it is proud to be a mixed school, it is only a mix of catholic and protestant students not a wide variety of cultures and religions. Also good reverend I do believe that the mood shall take me.

  30. Dudely Priestess on March 6th, 2011 9:52 am

    That rug REALLY did tie the room together…

  31. Tom man on March 6th, 2011 8:22 pm

    yeah man
