Welcome to another edition of Take ‘Er Easy Thursday, loyal reader. You’ve almost made it through another work week and your reward is a tribute to a man who doesn’t believe in work. An’ I’m talkin’ about The Dude here. The Dude…in Los Angeles. He’s high in the running for laziest worldwide, and that’s just one of the things we find so durned innerestin about him.
Now, if you’re a Dudeist, maybe you already live a life full of driving around, the occasional acid flashback…you know, the usual. However, if you’re not that lucky and you still have to go to a job every day, know that you’re not alone. There are many Dudeists out there who don’t have the necessary means for The Dude’s life of leisure. Still, we probably think every day about leaving our job and never going back.
Hot Shorts has written an anthem for us called ” I Don’t Want To Do My Job Anymore.” I mean the title says it all, but of course you can’t have a song that’s just a title. Then the band comes up with a line like “I’m not even that good at it.” Can I get an “Amen”? My only beef with this song is that it’s too short. But then, work – even when it’s recording a song – is hard. Which is why we celebrate The Dude. Who am I to blame the band for a short song about hating work when it says everything it needs to say? Because after all, any criticism I might have about the length of the song is just – like – my opinion, man.
Well, that about wraps ‘er up. Until next time, you take ‘er easy. I know that you will.
