John Goodman and Jeff Bridges on the celebration of John's Star on the Walk of Fame.
Sir William (from the new science fiction humor series, Sir William & Mac Life Without Slippers ) considers The Dude from the Big Lebowski to be one of his heroes. Before he became Sir William, he was just William, a space trash barge pilot. He wore slippers to work, played his music loud, and stayed true to himself. If anyone knows the value and sanctity of living a life with the symbolic meaning of slippers it has to be The Dude.
Quote from The Mac, first in the Sir William & Mac Life Without Slippers Series) “You’re an alien.” “Yes, yes of course I am.” William stretched and yawned. “I am from an ancient civilization on a planet called Fidea. Earth is one of our many colonies. One of our oldest, in fact, and a favorite vacation spot for many of us. The world’s largest ball of twine is popular among our people. Area 51 as well, mainly because it’s really funny. But, yes, I am an alien, and I suggest you sit down before you hyperventilate and fall down.” William took him by the arm, pushed over boxes from the shopping network, and gently lowered Mac onto the couch. He popped back up. “Sit.” Mac sat then got up again and walked to the monitors. “You have a camera pointed on Mrs. Ruben’s gnomes!” “That’s just for entertainment. They’re hilarious at night.” Mac dropped to the floor, hitting hard. “Drink some of your beer. Not too fast, though. Don’t want you puking on my rug. The rug really ties the room together, man.” Mac stared straight ahead, his voice mechanical. “You’ve been watching The Big Lebowski again, haven’t you?” “Damn straight. The Dude’s my hero.”
