Speaking of Lebowski

By John | July 27, 2007

I am about to leave for Phoenix tonight to join my wife and kids for a long awaited vacation in the Grand Canyon among other places.   I thought now would be a good time and cut my technical chord for a few days and tell you something you didn’t know about me (if you care?).

I am a HUGE “Big Lebowski” fan.  I am such a fan that I actually went to the two day Lebowski festival last summer in Austin (lots of dudes and bunnies if you get my drift).  I have seen the movie over 50 times and every time I see it again I catch something I didn’t see the last time.  In fact for years when I lived in Raleigh I would combine our annual Kentucky Derby party (my wife and I met at the Derby), with a Cohen brothers film festival.  We start with Blood Simple on Friday night and end up with O Brother, Where Art Thou? on Sunday afternoon. I usually loose most of the crowd a little into Fargo so I always swap the order so that the Big Lebowski ends the Saturday night of the “Derby” with a lot of White Russian lying around. 

If you are Lebowski fan like me you might like to read this list on IMDB:
