September’s series of musical selections is officially over! It’s October! Or should I say . . . Inktober?

Do you remember what happened the last time I celebrated Inktober? No? Well, you’re not going to like it. You’re certainly not go to like this one. You see, a friend posted to Facebook a list of Inktober assignments, and being the smartass I am, I’ve taken on (synonym: stolen) those assignments despite my . . . “modest” drawing skills. Look, mine will be funnier, okay? I’d link to his (which are going to be much better), but he protects his tweets. You’ll have to settle for mine.

He’s drawing for a charity by offering his drawings for sale, the proceeds for which go to the Stillbrave Childhood Cancer Foundation. Noble, but my choice of charity is the JDRF. Unfortunately, no one will buy my work, so until their link breaks, you can directly donate here. Or you can donate to Stillbrave. I won’t get angry. Here are the assignments:

I don’t know all of these things.

And here is today’s entry.

Day 21: The Big Lebowski

This movie came out in 1998 while I was still in law school, so no, I didn’t see it in the theater back then. I saw it via Netflix on May 3, 2015 (Facebook never forgets), and it instantly became one of my favorites. On January 21, 2020, I got to see it in the theater with a couple of friends (again, Facebook). As with Life of Brian, I’ll watch this movie every time I have a couple hours to kill and think to put it on. I have two favorite scenes: 1) him crashing his car within seconds of putting it in drive; and 2) his switch between doing a spit take after finding out Maude is pregnant to moments later casually mentioning that he was going to be a father soon as if there was nothing worrisome about it.

Trivia: The original feminine form of dude was dudine (I hate using the Merriam-Webster dictionary). Dudette is relatively new (circa 1991). Dude has since became gender-non-specific. I still use dudine to sound smart. I don’t think it’s working.

Before you laugh, try to remember that it’s for charity. Then laugh.
