For several years, the band had the pleasure of playing "Cinco de Lebowski," the annual parade / costume ball / midnight movie hosted by McMenamins at Portland's venerable Bagdad Theater. It was a wild scene and a crazy-ass party. In honor of the movie, we learned some cover tunes from the soundtrack, but over time, I felt obliged to come up with our own tribute. Former bandmate Reverend Mark Sexton had a cool riff floating around, and I took on the writing challenge. Although I'm nowhere close to being a rabid fan, it occurred to me there was a genuine "philosophy to live" by hidden inside the cult classic. The title may be cliche, but this ain't no novelty tune!
