Dude has fallen away as an icon of 20th century fraternity.

I'm a poor-loser type white-ish person forced to live around and interact with blahs for economic reasons. I've found that they just don't get the versatility of this word.

Too many times I've exclaimed "dude!" only to have it mockingly thrown back in my face with an inflected accent that tells me they're capable of talking like people if they chose to do so.

I can only discern from this that The Atlantic is a racist white heteronormative publication for printing this article.

The Big Lebowski ruined Jeff Bridges.

Jeff Bridges not being able to act unlike 'The Dude' ruined his films since then.

He was great as Kevin Flynn in the original 'TRON'. He was simply a Dude clone in 'TRON: Legacy'. If the character of Flynn wasn't so integral to the whole TRON scenario, I'd wish Flynn really was dead and gone, but the story needs him, so we'll get more existential Dude/Flynn instead of the actual character he used to be.

Even in 'True Grit', about as far away from 'The Big Lebowski' as you can get, he 'Dude'd his way through the film - oh, I get it, Dude with a hat and a rifle. Got it. *yawn*

'The Big Lebowski' sucked, anyway. It wasn't even worth the time I wasted watching it to see what the hype was about. Maybe it's because I don't get high. Whatever.

It's the 20th century equivalent of "I say, old chap!"

So wait, a whole article about "Dude", and I have to go to the Comments section before I get a Lebowski reference?

Article disappoints.

Subtle, but last line of the article:

It may be one of those rhetorical questions time dispenses with. Dude abides, but it also evolves.

Yeah, he was so terrible in Contender, Crazy Horse and True Grit that he won one Oscar and got nominated for two more.

No need to get high to enjoy the big lebowski, its all about character development. The more you watch it the more little things you catch that really tie the movie together.
