    Has anybody been to Lebowski Fest? It is a celebration of the movie "The Big Lebowski" Some of my friends are going to the one here in Chicago and I was wondering if the $30 is worth it. I am a big fan of the movie so I think I will cough up the money regardless.

    I've watched that movie 5 times in one day before. Other than the cost of snacks and drinks, which I would have had normally, I had my own free fest.

    Am I the only one who gives a **** about the rules?!?!

    When I read this article about the documentary, I was struck by this point:
    "A cult gives its members license to feel superior to the rest of the universe," film critic David Edelstein wrote on the Lebowski phenomenon, "and so does a cult movie: it confers hipness on those who grok what the mainstream audience can't."​
    I wondered if that describes the cult of Mac users as well.

    I never have been but I think if the opportunity presented itself, I would of course abide. It's in my top 5 favourite films EVER.

    I'm thinking of starting a cult, it's going to be called 'we're better than you!', anyone can join if they want, I don't mind...

    Let me tell you something, pendejo. You pull any of your crazy s*** with us, you flash a piece out on the lanes, I'll take it away from you, stick it up your a** and pull the f****** trigger 'til it goes "click."


    One of the best lines in the movie...

    Clearly, you're not a golfer.

    EDIT: Just saw that the OP actually posted this. Clearly, I am not the Achiever I thought I was.

    Guess I am the only one who watched it (just the other day as a matter of fact) and went "meh"
