Two Gentlemen of Lebowksi

Share on Nextdoor

As a music nerd, I find song mashups, such as Blondie vs. The Doors, simply horrifying. However, combining pop culture, film and/or literature, if done right, can come off brilliantly. Take Adam Bertocci's Two Gentlemen of Lebowski. It renders the script of The Big Lebowski in Shakespearean verse, iambic pentameter and all. The Bard's hypothetical take on the Dude (or "the Knave," as it were) spins lines such as "Is this your homework, Larry?" into "Is this thy parchment, Lawrence?" and so on. It might not inspire you to occupy administration buildings, but it's a great read, man. —Kate Bradshaw, CL contributor
