The Dude's Threads Blog

Week of January 25th through whatever is 7 days after that, probably the 31st

Welcum to the first installment of...was gonna say our weekly blog, but it remains to be seen if it will be worth the effort of doing one of these every week.

So welcum to the first installment of our monthly blog post! Maybe it'll be weekly if you love it. Possibly.

Given that this is actually a monthly blog, the title should be "Month of January something something" but I already wrote it as it is and am unwilling to change it.

Here's some new shit that came to light, from our different social media pages.

The Dude as Alice in Wonderland

The Dude as Alice in Wonderland

After watching the video above, I don't think there's any doubt that the Coen brothers intended the parallels between The Dude and Alice in Wonderland.

Far out, man.

Bullet Points:

  • both start out without any ambition or responsibility
  • "fuck it" attitude
  • do drugs that change their size
  • end up in wonderlands (rabbit hole & toilet bowl)
  • Bunny, who is white, has a license plate LAPIN which is "rabbit" in French. The Dude is also chasing his own white rabbit.
  • Alice finds a golden key which becomes large as she shrinks. When Dude arrives in Lebowski's huge home, Brandt shows him the large gold key to the city of Pasadena, and for no real reason
  • Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum are Wu and the other guy who show up at The Dude's house in one of the first scenes of the movie
  • Walter and Donny are the Walrus and the Carpenter
  • Maude is the Red Queen
  • Treehorn is the Mad Hatter
  • The Nihilists are the Red Queen's henchmen.

What does this all mean?

Well if you consider the parallels, the meaning of the movie changes. If Maude is the Red Queen, then she's masterminded the entire plot. That's what she's laughing about on the phone with Knox Harrington. This is how the idiot, incompetent nihilists are able to pull off a fake kidnapping - Maude is instructing them.

The underworld The Dude enters is a matriarchy where the women control everything and give men (such as The Millionaire Lebowski) the illusion that they have any kind of control.

So what? So nothing, Dude. Just kind of interesting, wouldn't you say?

Mind if I do a J?
