Inside Llewyn Davis E-mail

Inside Llewyn Davis is the Coen Brothers' next feature film.  I'm excited because both John Goodman and Justin Timberlake will be acting in it.  I know Timberlake isn't always looked upon as a great actor, but I think he's hilariously funny on SNL and did a great job alongside Jeff Bridges in Open Road.  This film will follow the folk music scene in New York during the 1960s.  It is slated to be released in 2013, so we'll have plenty of time to learn more about the movie before its release.

 
Why is "chinaman" bad? E-mail

I read some interesting thoughts on the word "chinaman" today written by David Tang.  David doesn't think the word itself is such a bad thing, but it seems most people don't agree with him.  What do you think?

Check out the second question/answer in the link below to see what Tang wrote.

Lack of posting E-mail

We've gotten some questions about the lack of posting lately, so I'm going to assume more are wondering than are asking.  The Lebowski Podcast HQ is in the process of moving back to Indiana.  Things should pick up again in about a week.  We have a couple of great interviews from the LA Fest, and other content just waiting to be posted.

Take it easy, Dudes.  I know you will.

I don't know man, I just can't look at Vice President Biden in the same way anymore.  I didn't know he felt so strongly about THE WORST BAND EVER.

Every once in a while I see some fake Ben & Jerry's ice cream.  I think you'll enjoy this one.

For all you Walter fans out there, I'm sure you'll be excited to listen to Episode 55 - Walter.  In this episode Liz and I recorded some thoughts on John Goodman's character with a couple of friends in Louisville, KY.  We were of course all there for the 10th Annual Lebowski Fest.  Included in the episode are some recordings of The Dudes Abide! concert where a few achievers banded together to play some music from the soundtrack at Wick's in Louisville the Thursday night before the Fest kicked off.

The Eagles: Love or Hate? E-mail
Written by Chalupa

All Achievers (fans of The Big Lebowski) have an opinion about the "popular" musical group known as The Eagles.  Some achievers like them and others hate them.  Every Lebowski fan you talk to will have an opinion either way.  I'm kind of against the Eagles personally, but my buddy B-Styx just gave another reason.

Don Henley wants China to run the United States of America's internet

Ok, so neither the article nor Don Henley actually says this.  Let's look at the facts.

  • Don Henley is in full support of the Protect IP Act
  • Don Henley supports people wanting to censor content, block IP addresses, remove access to certain web sites, etc
  • Don Henley thinks Google and the Electric Frontier Foundation (EFF) are aiding and abetting criminals
  • Even Brad Templeton, Don's former band mate, told him to just take it easy

Take it Easy, Don. There’s a New Kid in Town, and it’s called the Internet. Get Over It. I Can’t Tell you Why, but in The Long Run, there isn’t going to be a Heartache Tonight. One of these Nights I hope you’ll you understand that for search engines to Take it To the Limit, they can’t be forced to police every search result. - Brad Templeton

This is nothing short of ridiculous and I now understand fully what the Coens had in mind when The Dude's arch nemesis, The Jesus, was introduced with a song made popular by The Eagles.  I also know why after The Dude had one of the worst days in his life, having to listen to a song by The Eagles was the straw to break the camel's back.

New Blu-ray today E-mail
Written by Chalupa   
Tuesday, 16 August 2011 08:19

This morning I had a new email in my inbox titled: "New movie and TV releases this week" from Amazon.  I eagerly opened the message and scrolled down to the Blu-Ray section.  Obviously some old man in a suit is in charge working hard to make the bums lose because there was one obvious film missing from the list.  Fortunately, I went out and achieved anyway.

The Big Lebowski has finally made it to the Blu-section, and proud we are of them!  You can get it right now at Amazon for the modest price of $16.99.  Also just released today is Jeff Bridges' 2nd musical album.  It's self titled - Jeff Bridges by Jeff Bridges.  I've heard some really good things about it, and if you've seen The Fabulous Baker Boys or Crazy Heart - you know he can hold a tune.

Dude for President? E-mail

I seem to remember last time the presidential election time rolled into the semis a movement arose for Jeff Bridges to be elected president.  Would that make him El Presidente?  If you've seen The Contender I'm sure you'd love to see The Dude rolling in the presidential lanes and ordering shark steak sandwiches, cause who wouldn't?  I'm not sure how Jeff Bridges actually feels about this, but here are some places to find more info if you want to support the cause.
