The Dude AbidesJan 12 2011

PBS is airing a documentary about Jeff Bridges tonight called Jeff Bridges: The Dude Abides. In a short clip from the episode, Bridges visits a The Big Lebowski memorabilia store called The Little Lebowski. Watch the cashier's mind explode as he recognizes who just walked into his store.

And I love how he calls Joel and Ethan "The Brothers". (via devour)

The Two Gentlemen of Lebowski, live in NYCJan 13 2010

Working quickly, the DMTheatrics theater company has put together a stage performance of The Two Gentlemen of Lebowski beginning March 18 in NYC. The Two Gentlemen of Lebowski, if you don't remember, is the what-if-Shakespeare-wrote-it version of The Big Lebowski that I linked to last week.

What if The Big Lebowski had been written by Shakespeare?

It was of consequence, I should think; verily, it tied the room together, gather'd its qualities as the sweet lovers' spring grass doth the morning dew or the rough scythe the first of autumn harvests. It sat between the four sides of the room, making substance of a square, respecting each wall in equal harmony, in geometer's cap; a great reckoning in a little room. Verily, it transform'd the room from the space between four walls presented, to the harbour of a man's monarchy.

Yep, it's the entire screenplay. The Knave abideth, indeed. (thx, conor)
