Some thoughts on Fandoms
Jeff Bridges’ Website – Except for the wealth and fame and what-have-you, the Dude behind The Dude is truly a follower of all things Dudeist. Always has been, apparently. Those were even his real clothes in the movie.
Jeff Dowd’s Website – The dude upon whom the character of The Dude was dudeified. An actual member of the Seattle Seven and by accounts a true vanguard of Dudeist ideology. He’s also got a blog at the Huffington Post.
Jimmie Dale Gilmore’s Site (Smokey) – Not just a real-life pacifist, but a deeply spiritual guy and marvelous musician. For inspiration, see his “This I Believe” piece on the NPR site.
