I hope you already know that John Milius, a friend of the Coen Brothers, was one of the inspirations for Walter Sobchek. Even if you've never heard of him, you've probably enjoyed some of his work. He's a writer and director and has worked on many classics like Dirty Harry, Jaws, Red Dawn, Jeremiah Johnson, Apocalypse Now, Conan the Barbarian, etc. This guy has created some good lines in his day, besides directing. You migth remember some Milius references in Episode 15: Lebowski Symposium.
Anyways, Mr. Milius was recently interviewed and talked about how he thinks most scripts these days are garbage. I kind of agree and disagree at the same time. While I think a good portion of new films out there can be crap, need I mention the torture porn genre that's gotten big in the past 10 years or Paul Blart: Mall Cop?, there are also some really good films that have come about. So even though I kinda agree with him, I'd like to know exactly what we're agreeing on here.
I don't really have much to say except to just quote what I read here. Awesome real-life application, man.
Lastly, here are some fellow Achievers enjoying themselves Lebowski-style with a recent birthday celebration. She mentioned enjoying some caucasians and how much alcohol they contain. I'm no expert here, but I think she may have enjoyed a couple before taking this picture.
