March 6th marks the anniversary of the first theatrical release of “The Big Lebowski”.

I still remember the first time I saw it. It was in a second-run theater with my dad and older brother. We came out after it was over and said this to ourselves:

– “…I have NO IDEA what happened in that movie.”
– “Me neither.”
– “…But it was cool!”
– “Yea! It was cool!”

And we were quoting “Shut the fuck up Donny” by the time we were in the car driving home.

Here’s a piece honoring one of my favorite “lines” from the movie.
