Fans of the The Big Lebowski (which should include anyone with good taste) may remember a character by the name of ‘The Jesus’. He was a bowling rival to the titular character and just happened to be played by John Turturro. Now, if the rumors are correct, The Jesus may be making his way back to the big screen via a spin-off centered around his character. (more…)
There doesn’t seem to be much middle ground with people when asked about the Big Lebowski; either they really love it or they really hate it. This NerdBastard falls squarely in the really love it camp.
Now take that love and multiply it by 10, throw in bowling, white Russians, some serious Cosplay, and you get The Kentucky Lebowski Fest. These Lebowski Fests are happening at bowling ally’s all over the country, even around the world. Google Lebowski Fest and check the images. The posters advertising the Fests are fantastic works of art. The video below can give you a small taste of the fun. Started in 2002, the Kentucky Lebowski Fest has an open invitation to all the Dudes, Walters, Jesus’s and ferrets to bowl, drink, and relax.
