The Dude Abides, and So Do I

Introductory paragraph that acknowledges that the name of this website, Ethan Abides, is a Lebowski reference, since somebody asked.

For the record, I am similar to the Dude in four respects.* First, we’re both unemployed. Second, we both smoke weed. Third, we both don’t like the Eagles. Fourth, we both abide. There, I’m afraid, the similarities end.

* I mean, beyond the fact that we’re both cis-het white middle class American men, and the raft of similarities that come with those designations.

    Ah. Always thought it was a reference to the old sci-fi book Earth Abides.

    Nope, sorry to disappoint. I’ve not heard of Earth Abides. Is it cooler than Lebowski?

    I searched on “Earth Abides”. George R. Stewart, 1949. Post-apoc. Lebowski is a better fit for me, reference-wise.
