The Dude's Book Collection
« on: May 15, 2008, 03:15:23 PM »
everyone has noticed that the dude has a copy of "being and nothingness" by sartre on his bedside table. but there are lots of scenes with books in the background. i've been able to make out "gorky park", a book on bowling and i think one of the hoyle's card games or casino games books. oh, and catch-22. anybody else notice anything of note? a bit esoteric, i know, but just thought i'd ask.
I'll tell you what I'm blathering about...

I bet he has the Shapiro Pirke Avot, Illusions by Bach, and all the Charlie Brown and Seuss books.

Let's not forget his own personal copy of the unpublished first draft of the Port Huron Statement that he wrote..

I noticed that every time Donny bowls, he is wearing a different bowling shirt with a different name on it. I've tried to make out all the different names, but I always forget what I'm doing halfway through the film.

I'd be willing to bet that the dude has a copy of "The Lazy Man's Guide to Enlightenment" by Thaddeus Golas.  "We are equal beings and the universe is our relations with each other. The universe is made of one kind of entity: each one is alive, each determines the course of his own existence."  That is the first line of the book, and the rest of the book is based on that statement.  While I was looking for the authors name, I stumbled upon this link:

http://freespace.virgin.net/sarah.peter.nelson/lazyman/lazyman.html

it's the entire book online for your reading pleasure.

Thanks for reviving this zombie, and thanks RevWade for the link to Lazy Man, which I look forward to reading whenever I get around to it.

Really very good and useful book, which can help many people who are interested in cooking. In general, I like to read books of various kinds very much - art, biography, education. I am studying at university now in my third year of history. I am writing coursework with the company https://writix.co.uk/do-my-coursework. Books, which are both sources and literature, play a huge role in the bibliographic list. I am lucky to read from an early age, I keep a file cabinet for each book, so lists are no problem for me in my research work.

I struggled through "Being and nothingness" back at school.
That is some time I'll never get back.
Rarely would I recommend cliff notes en Lieu of the actual work but that might be close.
The gist is cool but a much boiled down version might be preferable.
Whatever gets you beyond the prison of bad faith.
Bowling, coitus. The possibilities are nearly endless.
