When I find a person I like, either in a movie, or in a band, whatever. I have this habit of wanting to know all about them.
I don't know what it is I just love finding out interesting things about people. There is so much to people that you have no idea about. Secret talents, hobbies, whatever. I especially love finding super successful people like actors or musicians and finding out they have amazing hidden talents.
It also makes me think I should probably start working on my own stuff as opposed to wasting time with these other people...
Jeff Bridges is someone who I have loved since seeing my now favorite movie, The Big Lebowski. Weirdly enough I never went and actually looked him up before. I loved him as The Dude, but never really thought about him as a real person. My loss, he's freaking awesome. I was watching the latest Jimmy Fallon and Jeff was a guest. Jimmy recently mentioned Jeff going on tour with his band, The Abiders.
So already he is The Dude, and has a band.
He's cooler than you.
Definitely a little more country than I usually listen to but it's Jeff Bridges.
Now, his website:
His daughter, Jessie Bridges is a phenomenal singer.
He also wrote a book called
The Dude and the Zen Master
which I am about to buy.
I just love this man and everything he does. He is way cooler than I could ever hope to be.
