I come late to everything. My first R. I loved Philip Seymour Hoffman as the obsequious toadie to the other Lebowski whom the Dude is mistaken for. I loved the absurdist plot, something about a missing rug. And I seriously loved Tara Reid, pruriently painting her toenails. In the second year of graduate school I spent my days jostling with Foucauldians, trauma theorists, critical-race-studies scholars and other people generally hostile to frivolity and fun. Some of the worst offenders have been the armchair Buddhists, who have found Zen koans in various catchphrases from the movie, to be puzzled over in their quest for enlightenment.
The perfect gift for fans of The Big Lebowski, Jeff Bridges's "The Dude", and anyone who could use more Zen in their lives. Zen Master Bernie Glassman.

The White Russian-drinking, pot-smoking, pacifist bowler enjoys the simple indulgences. He loves listening to whale songs while smoking a jay in bath, listening to recordings of old bowling tournaments while lying on his rug and hanging out with his friends. He has nothing going on, but he seems genuinely content. Jesus Christ that is, not the purple-suited pederast and he uses koans. The Coen brothers of course wrote the dialogue, and they did not come from the perspective of Zen. But my looking at it, a lot of the dialogue could be used as koans. I finished koan work a long time ago, but I created a koan system out of that movie.
I read his book "The Dude and The Zen Master" and thought it was a truly incredible book about two great friends talking about the good life. So you and Jeff Bridges just kind of sat down and jammed about a bunch of topics. Yeah, life in general. It was a number of topics we have been studying together for about 10 to 15 years. So we sat down for about four days, and sort of went through a lot of things, and talked about life.
