"Cormac Brown" is my pen name. I'm an up-and-slumming writer in the city of Saint Francis and I'm following in the footsteps of Hammett...minus the TB and working for the Pinkerton Agency. A couple of stories that I've stiched and stapled together, can be found here.
I'm sorry, I've always accepted this without question and never really contemplated the ramifications of this, but...
...just what exactly does "The Dude" abide by?
The zen of life?
The call of the no dress-code, code?
The call of a ice-cold white Russian? That was my go-to drink when I was at bars where the bartender would grimace at the mention of any drink that needed a blender to be made. That, and a Cape Cod, because there isn't a bartender alive that can f' that up or water it down.
Or is it the law that "one must bowl with a hot chick at least once in life?" Julianne Moore definitely fufills that requirement.
