I know that generally Friday is the weekday to celebrate. (Just count how many times you hear “It’s Friday” when you ask someone how he or she is doing on the last day of the work week.) But we like to celebrate Thursdays because those are the days we pay tribute to the ethos of The Dude.
Now, maybe when you think about takin’ er easy, you don’t immediately think of Nashville Pussy. After all, this band rocks pretty hard. Still, the song “Lazy White Boy” is a pretty good (if intense) take ‘er easy tune. I mean, the song is called “Lazy White Boy” and The Dude himself (the model of taking ‘er easy) is described as “most certainly a lazy man.” That’s not all though. Blaine Cartwright sings,
“Sit around getting high all day
Don’t let work get in my way.”
Whether you condone that sort of thing or not, the truth is if that isn’t following The Dude’s lethargic lead, I don’t know what is. The Dude doesn’t let much of anything (let alone work) get in his way of abiding. So yeah, this is an unusual take ‘er easy tune, but it is a fist-pumping (if they can be troubled to expend that sort of energy) anthem for Dudeists everywhere.
