You are entering a World of Pain

That’s pain. Not to be confused with a certain VP candidate. But you know what: the two seem fairly close in description. One is a hockey mom/pitbull who wears lipstick, the other is a distressing sensation. But enough politik for one week. Mark it zero, mark it somewhere, for Tuesday brings the release of The Big Lebowski: 10th year Anniversary Edition. I have the 4 year edition which is holding up just fine, and unless the first 1,000 DVDs come with special brownies, don’t expect me to make a purchase so swiftly. But 10 years! 10 years since they peed on your fucking rug, 10 years of Shomer fucking Shabbos, and an equal number of Vodka and Kahlua handles for the White Russians to make the 257th viewing more bearable. The film that inspired fests, beverages, and another trophy for your Coen Brothers case, is finally coming home. Again.

I’m in the midst of finals and in need of some serious laughing medicine. You’ve got some options here, Achievers:

What’s your favorite scene from the film?
Who’s your favorite character and why?

    Auto Circus Cop: [the Dude asks the Auto Circus Cop if there are any leads on who stole his beater car] Leads, yeah, sure. I’ll just check with the boys down at the crime lab, they’ve got four more detectives working on the case. They got us working in shifts!
    [laughs]

    Auto Circus Cop: Leads!

    [laughs as he walks away]

    Auto Circus Cop: Leads…

    that movie is something else, i finally scored a version w/ hebrew subtitles, now looking for one which is dubbed w/ hebrew

    I might have to get the 10th anniversary, it would be nice to put over the fireplace although my efficiency apartment hasn’t one to speak of

    Please allow me the honor of being the first one to vote for Maude. “The word itself makes some men uncomfortable. Vagina”.

    Maude: Do you like sex, Mr. Lebowski?
    The Dude: ‘Scuse me?
    Maude: Sex. The physical act of love. Coitus. Do you like it?
    The Dude: I was talking about my rug.
    Maude: You’re not interested in sex?
    The Dude: You mean coitus?

    DONNY
    Sheesh.

    DUDE
