I'm a Lebowski, you're a Lebowski
Here's a shot of a crowd at the Bagdad Theatre and Pub bouncing around to a cover of Kenny Rogers and the First Edition's immortal classic "Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)." On Friday night, KUFO and the old movie palace hosted their annual screening of The Big Lebowski, a movie I now have a hard time watching if I'm not surrounded by hundreds of drunk people all shouting out the lines along with the cast.
Admission was free but the audience was required to show up a few hours before the start time at Laurelhurst Park dressed in bathrobes ala "The Dude." From there, the crowd paraded to the theater through the streets of SE Portland behind a marching band. I cheated and ran back to the Bagdad ahead of them to grab a decent seat because I am, obviously, a terrible human being.
