    A cult is born at ‘Lebowski Fest’

    LOUISVILLE, Ky., July 21 — The Real Lebowski lives. And people love him. Jeff Dowd, the inspiration for the main character in the Coen brothers’ 1998 mistaken identity comedy “The Big Lebowski,” joined more than a thousand fans at the second annual Lebowski Fest — a celebration of bowling, white Russians and all things Lebowski.

    [SIZE=2]News like this makes me want to get old and bowl![/SIZE]


    THE FILM “HAS a rewatchability that most other films don’t,” said Russell
    Cooley, a 25-year-old research analyst from Madison, Wis., who drove
    more than 10 hours to attend. “You can watch it over and over again
    and it’s still funny.”

    In the film, Los Angles slacker The Dude — “I bowl. Drive around.
    The occasional acid flashback” — is played to perfection, Dowd says, by
    Jeff Bridges. He then becomes entangled in kidnapping and pornography
    when all he wants is restitution for his ruined rug — and he’s mistaken
    for a millionaire of the same name.

    “Let me explain something to you. Um, I am not Mr. Lebowski.
    You’re Mr. Lebowski. I’m the Dude. So that’s what you call me. You
    know, that or uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you’re
    not into the whole brevity thing,” explains The Dude, who’s accompanied
    in his misadventures by bowling partners Walter (John Goodman) and
    Donny (Steve Buscemi).

    Will Russell, the fest’s co-founder, said it’s his favorite movie
    because “the characters are brilliant, the dialogue is hilarious.” Said
    Dowd the Dude: “Sometimes I think they made the film just because
    they liked riffing on the name.”

    On Saturday night, [b]900[/b] people gathered at the AMF Rose Bowl in the garb of The Dude, Walter and Jesus — The Dude’s purple-clad bowling nemesis played by John Turturro — to roll a few frames and discuss the film in which “The Dude abides.” Friday night, 500 showed for a midnight screening with crowd participation rivaled only by “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.”

    “Rarely when I see one of my films on TV do I watch the entire
    thing, but whenever ‘Lebowski’ comes on, I get hooked,” Bridges said
    from New York, where he’s promoting his new film, “Seabiscuit.” “I’ve
    got to see Turturro lick the bowling ball."


    [color=gold]how cool is that?[/color]

    WALTER

    When he moved down to Venice he had
    to go door-to-door to tell everyone
    he's a pederast.

    DONNY

    What's a pederast, Walter?

    WALTER

    Shut the fuck up, Donny.
