“Donny was a good bowler, and a good man.”

I’m watching TV tonight, flipping through the channels.


On the Women’s Network, I find “The Wedding Singer“.

I didn’t have to watch much, because as far as I’m concerned, it kind of peaks with Steve Buscemi’s bitter, drunken toast:  “Best Man?  The better man!”


One of the movie channels is playing “The Big Lebowski“.

And it is awesome.  I love it.  I don’t think I could be with someone, in the biblical sense, if they didn’t love this movie.


And then, to complete the Buscemi Trifecta, I catch the last half of “Ghost World.”

And I have to finish the night, thinking about Steve Buscemi…in that way.



I’m going to bed now.


But I swear, if I have a sex dream about Steve Buscemi, the programming geniuses at the cable company are going to get some very angry (and very confusing) e-mails tomorrow.

  1. I agree with you on all three, Ginny.
    One thing Blane always said when we’d get an orthodontist bill for the kids, “Just think if Buscemi wore braces, that dude wouldn’t have a job.”

  2. I LOVE Ghost World – it is such a cool movie

  3. I have the big lebowski sitting in front of me right now waiting to be watched.


  4. “Shut the fuck up, Donnie! You’re out of your element!” is a battle cry in our household… except it’s often directed at the dog…

    Will need to see Ghost World.

  5. For the longest time I kept calling the Big Lebowski the Big Lombardo. It started when the movie just came out and I said to Todd, “Hey, wanna go see the Big Lombardo tonight?” Of course he found it hilarious, and it’s just another one of those things that I say incorrectly.

    It’s turned into a faux insult, “No YOU’RE the big lombardo.”

  6. at least Armageddon wasn’t on.

  7. Kitty: So true. So wise, Blane.

    nursemyra: And it’s one of those Madonna/Cyndi Lauper things: If you’d asked me at the time, I would have thought Thora Birch would be way bigger than Scarlett Johannsen. Shows what I know.

    Xbox: I’m not surprised.

    daisyfae: Omigod, me too! The other one I end up saying (mostly to the kids, who don’t get the reference and stare blankly) is “Is this your homework, Larry? Is this your homework, Larry? Is this your homework, Larry?” And so on.

    Beej: My dear sweet husband did a similar thing with mimosas. He made me a really nice breakfast, and was especially proud of the “mamessos”. Now, I can’t call them anything else.

    Otto Man: True dat.

  8. Lebowski is just my favorite movie ever.

    “Nihilists! Fuck me. I mean, say what you like about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it’s an ethos.”

    Best line ever.

  9. Free Man: Oooh, that is good. Check out what I found:


  10. I’m glad I’m not the only one who has a thing for Buscemi.

  11. chris: He’s just compelling. But I can’t think of doing it with him. Just. Can’t.

  12. I use The Big Lebowski as the yardstick by which I measure all potential partners. The first time I visit their house, I say, “I really love that rug.” And if they don’t reply, “It really ties the room together”, they’re out of the running.

    Fargo, too.

  13. Big Lebowski is the perfect movie.

    “hey, this is a private residence, man!”
