I have a confession to make.
I have still only seen The Big Lebowski once. Even now, after attending my first Lebowski Fest, I've only seen the film one time. Does that make me a poser? Yes. Did I have fun anyway? Let's see...
I talked to visitors from Kansas, Missouri, California, and Michigan. I saw three new-to-me bands (and got to see the March Madness Marching Band, again). I saw awesome costumes, sat on some Michaganders' rug, had my picture taken with two giant bowling pins (one was Lebowski Fest founder, Will Russell), and spent half my weekend surrounded by happy nerds. Did I have fun? I don't think there's any other option.
