Happy 17 Mr. Lebowsk... er, Dude!
Thanks to my cousin Jim for pointing out the fact that on this day in 1998 - 17 years ago - The Big Lebowski premiered. We had a viewing tonight in honor of the anniversary. Such an amazing movie. Some great music therein as well, from Kenny Rogers' totally out-of-character Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In) to the Credence, to I Hate You by The Monks (which I'd never realized was in the film before) to this rustic little cover of one of my favorite Stones songs from my favorite Stones album, performed by Townes Van Zandt.
Dude, wherever you are seventeen years later, keep abiding sir!
