The Dude Still Abides

While he’s been honored by the glitterati with the golden idol that is the Oscar award for his performance in Crazy Heart, to me Jeff Bridges will always be The Dude. And Lebowskifest is back in LA this weekend to celebrate all things Lebowski.

Tomorrow kicks it off at the Wiltern with appearances by lots of the folks who inspired the story & the characters, plus a screening of the film itself and a Creedence cover band, Paddy & the Poor Boys.

Then on Saturday check out the bowling party & costume contest at Cal Bowl, featuring games, celeb appearances, bowling (natch) and nihilists.

More info on the whole shebang here. And if you “don’t roll on shabbos,” well, you’re screwed.
