It’s The Day of The Dude! ABIDE.
“That rug really tied the room together, did it not?”
Saturday, March 6th – HAPPY DAY OF THE DUDE!
March 6th is the anniversary of “The Big Lebowski” 1998 release.
Dudeism is a religion/philosophy/lifestyle inspired by
the Coen Brothers’ 1998 film “The Big Lebowski” and
March 6th is the annual sacred HIGH Holy Day of Dudeism: The Day of the Dude.
Takin’ It Easy for All Us Sinners. We celebrate by taking it easy too.
Have a caucasian. Do a “J”. Watch “The Big Lebowski” again.
Go Bowling! Take a nap. Take a bubble bath. And just ABIDE today.
“The Big Lebowski is a 1998 crime comedy film written, produced, and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen. It stars Jeff Bridges as Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski, a Los Angeles slacker and avid bowler.” – wikipedia
NOTE: The Dude drinks nine White Russians and never actually does any bowling in the film.
“The Big Lebowski” was listed in The National Film Registry of the United States
(and the Library of Congress) in 2014
4:20am: Let’s get this party started! “Mind if I do a “J’?”
We are wide awake and have been for a couple hours.
We slept for a little bit only because we were exhausted from yesterday….
AND NOW IT’S SATURDAY MORNING AND THE DAY OF THE DUDE!
“Careful man, there’s a beverage here!”
A double espresso to start the day, since we are already wide awake.

“Jackie Treehorn treats objects like women, man.”
7:40pm: Well, we did fall asleep with the dogs and we slept for maybe two hours.
The dogs went outside and they got fed. We ordered sushi for dinner.
It was picked up and we ate. And it was a good dinner.
On The Menu: Saturday Night Sushi! Spicy tuna cut roll, California roll, Rainbow roll, yellowtail and green onion cut roll, eel and avocado cut roll, albacore sashimi and an iced espresso.
9:00pm: We ate some ice cream for dessert.
And we watched a couple episodes of “Two and A Half Men” again.
A marmot was originally planned to be used in the bathtub scene, but a ferret was used instead after the Coen Brothers realized that a marmot would be too large.
Marmots are relatively large, heavily built, ground squirrels from the genus Marmota.
They are stout-bodied, short-legged, mostly herbivorous (plant-eating), burrowing rodents from the squirrel family. They have coarse fur, a short bushy tail, and very small ears.
There are 15 species living in Asia, Europe and North America, typically in mountainous country. They are active during the late Spring and Summer, are often found in groups, and they hibernate underground during the winter (see the Groundhog).
A ferret is a domesticated European polecat. They are a mammal from the genus Mustela, in the family Mustelidae, the same as the weasel. Their fur is typically brown, black, white, or mixed. Ferrets are small, affectionate, intelligent animals that love to play and explore.
“Lets not forget Dude that keeping wildlife, um… an amphibious rodent,
for… um, ya know domestic… within the city… that ain’t legal either.”
Celebrate Jeff Lebowski!
The Day of The Dude
Today is also the last day of “Hangover”,
which begins on February 27th, National Kahlua Day,
and ends on March 6th, The Day of The Dude.
“Uh, I am not Mr. Lebowski. You’re Mr. Lebowski.
I’m the Dude. So that’s what you call me.
You know uh that or uh his Dudeness or uh Duder or uh El Duderino…
if you know you’re not into the whole brevity thing.”
11:45pm: And so another Day of the Dude is slowly coming to an end…..
What did we learn today? We don’t know. We don’t care. One more day.
And soon it will be Sunday again…. “Fuck it Dude. Let’s go bowling.”
Gotta Lotta Balls!
“F*ck it Dude, Let’s Go Bowling”
Nice collection Man.

“Am I the only one around here who gives a shit about the rules?”

GET HOME ALIVE, DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE!
“KNOW WHEN TO SAY WHEN!”
“FRIENDS DON’T LET FRIENDS DRIVE DRUNK!”
DUDEISM: Come join the slowest-growing religion in the world, Dudeism.
An ancient philosophy that preaches non-preachiness, practices as little as possible, and above all, uh…lost my train of thought there.
Anyway, if you’d like to find peace on earth and goodwill, man, we’ll help you get started.
Right after a little nap.
We are an Ordained Dudeist Priest of The Church of The Latter-Day Dude.
We are available for weddings, parties and other occasions in California!
NOTE: WE ARE NOT AN ATTORNEY AND THIS IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE!
How to Perform a Marriage Ceremony in California:
1.) Show up to the wedding
2.) Review the marriage license
“The marriage license must be reviewed by the marriage officiant prior to solemnizing the marriage. Any person who solemnizes a marriage without first reviewing the license is guilty of a misdemeanor” (CA Penal Code, Section 360).
3.) Perform the ceremony (have the couple and the witnesses sign the marriage license)
4.) Fill out your part of the marriage license as The Officiant
(Name, place, date the ceremony was performed,
sign and print your name and the date,
and the best part, add your affiliation: Dudeism)
5.) Personally deliver (IMPORTANT: It Must Be You) the completed license
to the County Clerk’s Office in county where ceremony performed within 10 Days.
NOTE: The order of 1 and 2 can switch, of course.
“The laws of the State of California make it unnecessary for persons performing marriages to file credentials with the clerk of the court or with anyone else. The county and state are removed from any responsibility for verification of credentials. The State does not maintain a central registry of members of the clergy. Any such concern for verification is totally at the discretion of the parties to the marriage.” CA FAMILY CODE [400-402]
AND SEE CA FAMILY CODE Division 3. Marriage and Part 3. Solemnization of Marriage
Chapter 2. [420-426] FOR FURTHER INFO.
420.(a) No particular form for the ceremony of marriage is required for solemnization of the marriage, but the parties shall declare, in the physical presence of the person solemnizing the marriage and necessary witnesses, that they take each other as husband and wife.
2020 CORONAVIRUS UPDATE:
On April 30th, 2020 – California Governor Gavin Newsom issued an Executive Order regarding Remote Weddings. “Under the executive order, adults will be able to obtain a marriage license, at the discretion of their local county clerk, through videoconferencing, as long as both adults are located within the State of California, are present, and can present identification during the video conference. The license can then be issued via email.”
NOTE: There are some states and counties that are very undude.
Always check with the County Clerk where the ceremony is to be performed
to confirm or disconfirm whether Dudeist ceremonies are cool and legal.

A four-door 1973 Ford Gran Torino
“Green with some uh, brown, uh, or rust coloration”
There were actually two Gran Torino’s used in “The BigLebowski”:
One was destroyed during the filming of the movie,
The other Gran Torino was used in Blue Streak (1999)
and then destroyed in an episode of The X-Files in 2001.
