The dudes from Lebowskifest sent me a copy of their new book, I’m a Lebowski, You’re a Lebowski: Life, The Big Lebowski, and What Have You. Made me laugh to beat the band. If you’re already a fan of the Coen Brothers classic bowling-noir film, this book is a must read. If you’re not tuned in to the cult of Lebowski, perhaps you need grab yourself a couple of oat sodas, watch the DVD a few times, and then read the book. Some new shit will come to light.

I shot the first two Lebowski Fest West events, and at the 2005 Fest Jeff Bridges made a surprise appearance. A couple of those photos are in the book. Take ‘er easy, dude.
