a playlist for the dude.

For those not acquainted with the Dude….you…..I just…you are missing out.  The Dude is the main character in the Coen Brothers’ classic film “The Big Lebowski” (1998).  He is as chill as they come with his hippy-like baggy clothes, his portable tape player and beard to kill all beards.  Needless to say, he is someone you and I can look up to.

The Big Lebowski is an odd movie, definitely not normal.  It is the story of how a very laid back dude has his rug stolen by some guys who mistake him for a different Lebowski.  From that point on the movie is unsummarizable.  It stars John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Julianne Moore, John Turturro and Tara Reid.

John Goodman (right) (as Walter Sobchak) plays the Dude’s best friend and bowling teammate.

For those who DO know this movie then you should know that scene when the Dude is laying on the rug in his living room listening to something on his tape player.  Here is what is on that tape, I made it: the dude. (i suggest clicking “play all.”)

This is that scene. The Dude, a.k.a. the Big Lebowski, a.k.a. Jeff Lebowski is played by Academy Award winner Jeff Bridges.
