The Dude Abides


I’ve had a pleasant holiday weekend, but not a great one. So this afternoon, as I turned on NPR, I wasn’t in a bad mood, but I wasn’t in a great one. The first thing I heard was an analysis of the fictional character, The Dude, from one of my favorite movies (and definitely my favorite Cohen Brothers movie), The Big Lebowski. Here’s the NPR piece. Listen to it. Don’t read the transcript. I guarantee you’ll be smiling when it’s all over.
