Whoa, man! I just realized that this year marks the 15-year anniversary of The Big Lebowski. Crazy!
Well, to celebrate, as an occasion such as this should be celebrated, we here at Geeks of Doom have once again partnered with the super groovy crew behind the annual Lebowski Fest, to give away a dozen tickets to two of their exclusive 12th Annual Lebowski Fest parties coming up in just two weeks.
The 12th Annual Lebowski Fest is taking place in Louisville, KY on July 19th & 20th, and we’ve got three pairs of tickets to the Movie Party, which features musical performances by The Kyle Gass Band (the man behind one full half of Tenacious D), Kentucky Prophet, and a screening of the movie that started it all, The Big Lebowski!
AND, we’ve got another three pairs of tickets, this time to the Garden Party, which features Lebowski-themed games, music by Leftover Cuties, March Madness Marching Band, Taylor Brashears w/ Va Va Vixens, and Squeeze-bot!
Too much awesome to contain!
Both of these events take place this month in Louisville, KY. Keep that in mind. We’ll provide the winners with the tickets, but travel expenses and such are totally your responsibility, ya dig?
Also, Â¡muy importante! We’re gonna need you to specify exactly which party you’d prefer to attend in the Comments field of your entry. So, say “Movie Party” or “Garden Party” or if you can make it to either one, say “Either one.” If you don’t fill in the Comments field, you ain’t got much chance of winning.

Remember the Little Golden Books, the innocuously illustrated children’s book series of nursery rhymes, fairy tales, and ways to learn one’s ABC’s that’s been around since 1942?
Well, Josh Cooley, story artist at Pixar Animation Studios, has been having fun in his free time over the past few years making what he dubs “Inappropriate Golden Book“-style illustrations based on popular films.
Cooley compiled his fun illustrations, which include scenes from Alien, The Godfather, The Big Lebowski, and many more, into one book titled Movies R Fun, currently available through his online shop for $35.
The t-shirt deal of the day over at RIPT Apparel today is a Big Lebowski-inspired shirt called “The Jesus.”
The tee, by artist Tom Ledin, is on sale at RIPT only for today, Tuesday January 4, 2011 until tonight at midnight CST. Once the time is up, the shirt will no longer be available at the site.
The t-shirt is available in both men’s and women’s sizes in Purple for $10. Kids sizes are $15 (Boys, Girls & Toddlers in varying shades of Purple); Onesies are $18 (in Pink). You can also get the design on a Hoodie for $38 (in Men/Unisex sizes in Purple).
The design is inspired the character The Jesus played by John Turturro in the 1998 film The Big Lebowski.
