Where it all begins...

Many days I've thought of getting back to thinking in text.  I had actually forgotten I got a couple of posts up in the spring of 2012...and with good reason: the posts sucked.  This is better:

I've been trying unsuccessfully to finish a paper for a course I took this summer.  The course ended the last week in June and my professor was kind enough to give me an incomplete because of some bumps in the road I've hit over the last few months.  Stress is a motherfucker.  Anyway My semester starts next week and I'm going to be TA's an undergraduate section of the course this fall...so, I kind of need to finish things up.  It's nothing crazy.  Ten pages about a negotiation.  I chose to write about The Big Lebowski, because, well, I really like the movie and I think the Dude is a shrewd negotiator in many ways.  It offers a unique case study into the mind of a, well, I won't say a hero, but a man...a man...well, he's just the man for his time and place.

The scene I'm talking about is the Dude's initial meeting with the Big Lebowski, and it happened to be posted on youtube.  I watched the youtube a couple of times because it's easier than running the DVD in my laptop but when the clip finished, one of the recommended clips on the screen caught my eye...can it catch yours, too??

Look closer and click on the picture to make it full size if you have to: six other clips of Lebowski, one clip of R. Lee Emery and Private Pile, and one illustrated image of how to check your cervix using a speculum.  

WE'RE BACK, BABY.  Cheers.
