Yes, it has come to this: the Eggheads take on the Dude and The Big Lebowski.
Speaking of Bridges, check out this L.A. Times piece about the music for his new movie, Crazy Heart.
And dig this: the Film Society at Lincoln Center is hosting an evening with Jeff Bridges on Saturday, January 9th. An interview with the actor will be followed by a screening of The Last Picture Show.

AND A GOOD DAY TO YOU SIR!
I saw The Big Lebowski at an actual movie theater, first run. It was the best time I've ever had at the movies I think.
I saw it here in Tokyo. My friend and I were in hysterics, when the Dude was smoking a joint in the bathtub while listening to the "Sounds of the Whales", we completely lost it. All the Japanese crowd around us sat in stony silence..comedy often doesn't translate I guess.
Tell me about it. I suppose if I ended some of my jokes with (polite) references to Disney or Hello Kitty I could get a chuckle? >;)
This is what happens when you f*** a stranger in the ass.
We have a shelf or two of DVDS. When all our Netflix are in transit and we are too lazy to drive to the video store, my wife will grab either pulp fiction or the Dude. Used to be Bogart, but we gave away the VCR tapes. I, too, saw the movie in a theatre. I have seen all the Coen's on a big screen. I think Lebowski is a highly underrated movie, as is animal house.
I think we will name our next car Maude, or maybe Donny, depending on its sex.
Because my mother's native tongue is French, cars were always feminine.
Donny: Are these the Nazis, Walter?
Walter Sobchak: No, Donny, these men are nihilists, there's nothing to be afraid of.
