The Dude Abides

The DudeExcellent, most excellent. Turns out the Coen Brothers based The Big Lebowski on a real ‘Dude’ who they met in the early 80’s. Jeff Dowd goes by the moniker ‘the Dude’ and served as the model for Jeff Bridges’ character in the 1998 movie.

His Dudeness is a film producer known for his laid back lifestyle and boisterous charm. Damn, I feel like spending the afternoon bowling and drinking Caucasians now. Seeing as I am a veritable Dude myself, this sounds like a damn good idea.

Whatever happens, the Dude abides man, the Dude abides.
