Is there any more of this interview?

I must say I am against wearing "robes" as a prerequisite to Dudeism.

I am A Dudeist because I am, not because I have a piece of paper or a robe that I wear, I am a Dudeist in all things (as far as possible), not just because I wear a robe and have a beard.

BTW nice to see Oliver again, he went through a media hussy period a while back then has been quiet for long time.

Hey Meekon,
If you haven't already found it, this is the actual Nightline spot.

Thanks for that Cakes, I hadn't had the opportunity to look for it.

I see it as freedom to wear your robe, rather than a requirement to do so. I agree; a dude is a dude, robe or not.

See I quite like wearing my Shemagh around my head when I'm feeling particularly holy.



So if a robe does it for you then I have no problem with that 9just don't be telling me I need one).

I just don't think we should represent that certain aspects are needed, else we will end up being like the Pharisees and arguing that someones robe is not the correct shade of brown to be a true robe.

Is that a head robe? 8)

Maybe this is just hopeful thinking, but I do not think that anyone here would say you would have to wear a robe to be a Dudeist. Not even the Dudely Lama himself. I think it is a pretty fun way to celebrate the movie and the laid back aspect of the religion, but no hard and fast rules.

I personally like to throw on a pair of Thai fisherman pants, a comfortable Tee, and relax that way when I am feeling particularly mellow and Dudely. I get overheated in robes...

I think it's more about not seeing anything wrong with wearing a robe to the market than necessarily wearing one.
I don't own a robe but I do own a pair of fuzzy slippers that I do generally wear to the store when I get my morning coffee.

IMO If a person feels silly being at that level of casual then they may be too uptight to be a dude.

Actually, my point in advising robe wearing was a way of saying "wear your dudeness openly" or "feel free to live your inner dude." The robe is a mere symbol, but a good one IMHO. 8)

I'm not sure if I'll ever wear a robe but not because I'd be embarrassed. Not sure how I'd look in one. However, my "robe" (the origins of the word not only mean a loose garment, but also booty or spoils or plunder) is different. I have no problem walking in public wearing old ratty sneakers or worn out jeans. I will wear a shirt such as my pirate girl ("Forget the chest, it's all about the booty"), Eaton Beavers college tee, various comicon shirts, shirts out of season (Halloween shirt in the spring), or anything at all.

I'm slowly being 100% not giving a fuck about what I'm wearing as long as I'm happy in it. This pisses off my "friend," more of an acquaintance, who is 100% about how he looks. He constantly asks a few women he knows what he should wear. He wears nothing because he's comfy in it; he wears it because he's totally concerned how they look to others.

I have the same opinion as Meekon on the subject.

you can't judge a book by its cover.

I'm a Dudeist, whether I wear a tux, or jeans, or a robe, or I run naked with my beard and hair flying in the wind.

Won't change.

That rocks so hard it abides, dude!

I don't have a robe, but while wanting one, not for Dudeism as I see myself a Dudeist without it, no I want one to not freeze my ass off out the holy bathing session. I wear a 12 foot scarf like one of my favorite dudes, the fourth Doctor. Get comments about blasting away fashion norms but I don't care, I can't be worried about that shit. Keep on abiding dudes and take er easy no matter robe, shemagh, slippers and what have you... You all inspire this plain dude  8)

Although I love my robe and wear it frequently, that's only because it's been a rather cold winter so far and my robe is big, fluffy, fleecy warmness.

That's the beauty of Dudeism... no trappings, but abundant symbolism if one so chooses to indulge.

Besides, the hoodie is the new robe.  :D
