It’s no secret that here at Extra Guy, we love the chiptunes. It’s not as well known, however, that we also love the 1998 cinematic classic ‘The Big Lebowski’. So consider us pleasantly surprised by the recently-revealed existence of Chipocrite’s 8-bit Lebowski — a reimagining of the soundtrack found in the seminal Coen Brothers film.
“Entirely arranged for one Game Boy running LSDJ, ’8-Bit Lebowski’ is dedicated to all the Achievers out there who have faith that the bums DON’T always lose,” reads the album’s Bandcamp page. “Please, enjoy it, down through the generations, westward the wagons, across the sands of time until we — aw, look at me, I’m rambling again. I hope you abide.”
Expect to hear your favorite songs from the movie, such as “Tumbling Tumbleweeds” by Sons of the Pioneers, “Hotel California” by The Gipsy Kings and “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)” by Kenny Rogers & The First Edition. An exchange of five dollars gets you a copy of the six-track album, though Chipocrite would probably appreciate real money and not a satchel filled with dirty laundry when it comes time to pay.
