I hereby nominate Richard Milhous Nixon, the quintessential anti-dude. Can you dig it?

We are entering a world of pain if we don't draw a line in the sand there.
I don't get it. How do I sign this? Is there a special pen?

How's about the late, great Warren Zevon?  Like the dude knew he was expiring fast and still carried on to "enjoy every sandwich".

He left us with a catalog of classic songs unlike anything anyone else ever addressed;

"Send lawyers, guns and money, the shit has hit the fan"...

"Well, I saw Lon Chaney walking with the Queen
Doing the werewolves of London
I saw Lon Chaney, Jr. walking with the Queen
Doing the werewolves of London
I saw a werewolf drinking a pina colada at Trader Vic's
His hair was perfect
Werewolves of London again
Draw blood
ahhh oooh, werewolves of London"...

"My Shit's Fucked Up :

Well, I went to the doctor
I said, "I'm feeling kind of rough"
He said, "I'll break it to you, son (Warren sings, "Let me break it to you, son")
Your shit's fucked up."
I said, "my shit's fucked up?"
Well, I don't see how--"
He said, "The shit that used to work--
It won't work now."

I had a dream
Ah, shucks, oh, well
Now it's all fucked up
It's shot to hell

Yeah, yeah, my shit's fucked up
It has to happen to the best of us
The rich folks suffer like the rest of us
It'll happen to you

That amazing grace
Sort of passed you by
You wake up every day
And you start to cry
Yeah, you want to die
But you just can't quit
Let me break it on down:
It's the fucked up shit "...


What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?

I nominate the proto-dude, Maynard G. Krebs.   Although pre-marijuana, he pioneered fashion, facial hair, love of music, alternative vocabulary, the will to abide,  brought to fore the issue of achieving and the lack of aptitude thereof, and an uncluttered value system.

A cool dude is Dick Dale, The King of the Surf Guitar. He created the surf sound in the late 50s early 60s. You will know his song mirserlou from the opening credits of Pulp Fiction. If that ain't cool I don't know what it.

Oh, and the Fonz.

Mark it 8 for Dick Dale, he may have lived near the dude's place. But not that close, surfers say there is no life east of the I5.
May have eaten at the same family restaurant.

I would have to agree with the Bill and Ted votes, but the main reason for my post is to nominate a pro athlete (other than RVD which was an awesome recommendation as well):

John Kruk

I'm not a Phillys fan or really a baseball fan (anymore), but I remember going to watch the Phillys play the Pirates when I was a kid and Kruk would either lay in the outfield or just sit there and "stretch". Krukie is also a very cool dude as well... good person all around. However it wasn't until I started researching some infamous Krukie quotes that I realized he should be enshrined:

After the Phillies scored eight runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to win a game:

"We?re losing by eight runs, and all I?m thinking about at that point is getting back to the hotel by midnight because that?s when room service closes. All of a sudden we start getting hits and more hits, and I?m saying, ?I?m not going to make it.? If you?re not going to get room service you might as well win."

"I would think I drive most hitting coaches crazy. During one single at-bat I used six different stances on six pitches. Oh yeah, I also struck out. So what do I know ?"

And my personal favorite...

"Lady, I'm not an athlete... I'm a ball player."

On a side note he also opened up a bar in West Virginia. When asked why he called the bar "Third Base," Kruk replied: "Third base is the last stop before you go home."

There are A LOT of DUDES out there. But let's analyze dudes in history. WHO influenced the Dude and this laid back, lifestyle of his and many others?

ALEISTER CROWLEY

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law



Creator of Thelema....he is THE man

Ah the Beast himself.

I have slight problems equating him with Dudeism though (I do own most of his books including "666 - Magical Diary of the Beast")

Damn fine occultist and good source of information on rituals (probably wrote the Wiccan Reed but don't mention it to them).

Massive egotist yes, but Dude, sorry but I don't think he was.

I'm gonna enter Kurt Russell.............not in the biblical sense of course, just cos I tend to get him and Jeff Bridges kinda muddled up and for this line at the end of the film The Thing, after much alien carnage has ensued (generally people morphing into hell knows what) wondering if the thing is dead with no hope of surviving says "Why don't we just wait here for a while, see what happens....."
It's a brave person who slacks when there's plenty to do.

See the movie "Elvis Meets Nixon" for a good laugh. These guys were for real but not many people could dig the way they do business. They watched the superbowl, and discussed who was on the "list of people to hate" not nihilists, not nazis, just run of the mill bowlers.

Sounds like "The Flying Elvis Dudes From Mars."
