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.
A good friend of ours in Thailand, writer Roy Hamric recently interviewed one of the coolest poets and writers alive, Jim Harrison. Roy has graciously allowed us to reprint the interview, originally published in the terrific Kyoto Journal. This feller Harrison is certainly high in the running for dudeliest poet world wide and it shows in his wise and heartfelt responses to Hamric’s sensitive interrogation. Enjoy.
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.
Most of you have heard of Two Gentlemen of Lebowski, but now there’s two more new plays out there and a bunch of other creative Lebowski mashups (or ding ups as we like to call them). Lotta cool strands to keep in ol Duder’s head. It might not be such a…you know? Literal connections, Dude. The treatises of life.
A XXX-rated parody of The Big Lebowski is about to be filmed (Feb 25-28) and the press are invited to attend. Any L.A.-based photographers/journalists interested in covering it for us? It’s easy to forget just how much The Big Lebowski actually deals with the porn industry in Los Angeles. Now the industry is returning the favor!
We’ve just become friends with a celebrated poet of a small part of the Netherlands, a cool feller named Hidde Boersma. Turns out that Hidde came up with a similar philosophy to that of Dudeism, called Doedeisme a couple of years ago. Far out, man! Dude minds think alike. He recently went on a local TV show to talk about Dudeism and Doedeisme. We interview him here.
Hey you can win a free copy of the Dude De Ching! A cool website called TheToiletPaper.com is sponsoring a giveaway of printed copies of our holy text. What a very dude thing for them to do!
Rev. Todo Duderado shares an excerpt from his story collection “Acidhead and Stories” in which he discovers the meaning behind the wild and crazy Jewish holiday of Purim while tripping on acid at a music festival. Made us hallucinate to beat the band.
We were just contacted by an amazing artist named Chris Hoffman who is so talented he makes the great Knox Harrington (the video artist) look like a rank amateur. Check out his incredible, colorful Dudels and maybe even buy one if you’ve got the bones or clams or what have you.
Another great mix of Lebowski audio clips set to groovy music has surfaced. That dance quintet is really coming along now…
