A slow burn...

The past few weeks have been quite busy, mainly with railroad history stuff and turning 31. And I think I've found the perfect movie to relax to:

The Big Lebowski.

I don't know why, but that movie is a slow burn. I didn't laugh out loud the first time I watched it, but after I started reflecting on some lines like "OVER THE LINE!" and "I really liked that rug, it tied the whole room together." I started smiling.

It's just so absurd at times that I really stopped caring that there was no resolution for the Dude's rug and car. But that's the point. The Dude abides. He rolls with it.

So, if you haven't seen it check it out. If you have but didn't think it was funny, watch it again.
