Inaugural Lebowski Day: August 17, 2011

Post by Cliffie S. Bockerson » Tue Aug 16, 2011 1:24 pm

Dear fellow alcoholic urban, suburban, rural, foreign and ex-pat under-achievers,

Today marks the release of The Big Lebowski on blu-ray. (I know, it was out on HD-DVD, but who bought one of those players, eh?) This is the first chance that people like myself, who love this movie beyond explanation, have had to see it in its rightful state.

I consider this a Big Fucking Deal. I am taking the day off tomorrow--the first full day following the release. I am going to put on a robe over my boxers and white t-shirt. I am going to pour drink after drink, and I'm going to watch The Big Lebowski over and over again on Lebowski Day, which I'm celebrating this year on Wednesday, August 17, 2011, and it's going to be fucking awesome.

Woah, I got a beverage here, man!
Can I pour you a beer, Mr. Peterson?
A little early isn't it, Woody?
For a beer?
No, for stupid questions...

All right, then. I WILL have to see this flick. Apparently, it is the most wonderful thing to come out of Hollywood, since the Wizard of Oz. Damn. How could I have missed out? Well, I am well-known to be oblivious.

Savage, it's a quirky movie. Some love it, some hate it. It seems there are very few on the fence.

To me, it's the smartest and funniest drunk-ass, stoner-ass character study who-dunnit fuck-it-all movie ever made.

Yes, I really do believe it is the greatest film of all time, after approx. 80-100 viewings. I can't even believe, now, that this movie exists. But I'm grateful it does, and the blu-ray release is a true cause for celebration, for me.

Love it, don't love it, drink up. Me, I fucking love it, and I always will, and I'm going to watch it 4 or 5 times tomorrow on my day off. Gonna hit it early.

If you haven't seen Fargo yet, watch that first.

The two films seem related in my mind.

Fargo is brilliant.

I haven't seen the Big Lebowski.
