When it comes to George Carlin, or GC, I just want to say, sir, that we're both enormous--on a personal level,
Branded, I mean the hippie dippie weatherman, especially the early episodes, has been a source of, uh, inspir---ation

GC made me smart.
Words I can do without.
People that I can do without.

The list goes on and on. He should have been elected to an office where he could have made a difference.. But he wasnt because he was too mouthy. That and a criminal record.
Is this your only ID?

I definitely think that "Hansel" from the 2001 movie Zoolander is the perfect example of dude. He shows that being male model of the year doesn't impede on his mindset of constant chill and living life how he wants.
Hansel.

To be dude is both a philosophy and a way of life.

Don't know if It's been said, but I would nominate Eckhart Tolle as a Great Dude In History.   Eckhart is one of the greatest laid back Dudes of our time (author of A New Earth & The Power of Now).  A spiritual person who is not affiliated with any religion, doesn't have a religion, he has gained millions of followers, and his books have been translated into 34 different languages.  Not only is he all about Takin' it easy, in his great relaxed efforts to show people how to do the same; he's not at all worried as to whether or not people will wake up to this important principle of life.  Strikes or gutter balls, he's perfectly content either way.

I second the nomination of the Beatles but only John, George, and Ringo.  Paul would have to be a "Dudas Iscariot" for selling out to money and bad pop music.  A wolf in Dudes clothing...

Interesting comment S and P, St. Paul McC sure has a spooky past, what with all that "Paul is dead" voodoo and such.

Dock Ellis for pitching a no-hitter on acid.   Or claiming to, or having a Dude-inspired acid flashback

Anthony de Mello, a Jesuit priest from India, influenced the world through his powerful understanding of the human condition. Through the use of parables and teaching stories, de Mello pointed the way to authentic living. The influence of spiritual traditions outside mainstream Christianity is clear in his work. The depth and spiritual insight in his teachings, stories and articles made him well known throughout the world. He is well appreciated by many inside and outside the Roman Catholic Church.

His teachings were temporarily banned within the Roman Catholic Church by then future pope Ratsinger, but the ban has been lifted. Catholics are still advised to avoid his writings though. It is good to be reminded occasionally that the Roman Catholic Church still has a blacklist, where mystics can get their work listed.

    "How shall I help the world?"
    "By understanding it," said the Master.
    "And how shall I understand it?"
    "By turning away from it."
    "How then shall I serve humanity?"
    "By understanding yourself."


    last recorded words, a prayer following Communion:

    Don't change: Desire to change is the enemy of love.
    Don't change yourselves: Love yourselves as you are.
    Don't change others: Love all others as they are.
    Don't change the world: It is in God's hands and he knows.
    And if you do that change will occur
    Marvellously in its own way and in its own time
    Yield to the current of life unencumbered by baggage.

    There were rules in the monastery, but the Master always warned against the tyranny of the law. "Obedience keeps the rules," he would say. "Love knows when to break them."

Alan Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs, and Tom Waits! Especially Tom Waits!

I saw Alan Ginsberg read his poetry in Los Angeles years ago and he read this one epic poem, the refrain of which was:

"Don't smoke! Don't smoke! Don't smoke! Don't smoke! Smoke dope! Smoke dope! Smoke dope! Smoke dope!"

He was very dude, very cool, and also very Zen.

And Tom Waits both for his hobo-inspired music and persona and his laid-back dudeness.

Also, Ted (of "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure").

Oh, and this guy named Tex who is the lead singer for a band called the Groovy Rednecks. He epitomizes dudeism...
