For those of you who have just stumbled upon us, and for you long time listeners who might not be aware, I thought I'd take the opportunity to point out some ways you can get involved in the sub-culture of The Big Lebowski besides just listening to the podcast.

  1. Lebowski Podcast Blog - obviously you know about it already if you're reading this post, but do you participate?  Leaving a comment might seem like a trite or trivial thing, but it's a real confidence booster to a blogger.  I've been blogging since 2004 and feel I can say that with confidence.  Comments also encourage conversation amongst other readers and can be both enjoyable and enlightening.
  2. Lebowski Podcast Forum - sadly this is one part of this site that doesn't get used very often.  We've had several faithful users over the years, but it's gets boring when I'm the only one responding.  This is one place you can converse with fellow listeners or just talk about whatever's on your mind.
  3. Facebook - There are a lot of ways you can use Facebook.  We happen to have both a Lebowski Podcast Page and a Lebowski Podcast Group.  You can also find a plethora of other groups pertaining to The Big Lebowski and the Coen Brothers.  Some of our favorites include Dudeism, Lebowski Fest, and The Dude Abides.
  4. MySpace - Just like Facebook, we also have a MySpace page.  Honestly, we don't do much with it, but it's there if you'd like to befriend us.
  5. Twitter - Tweeting seems to be the new sensation.  I didn't get on this bandwagon until earlier this year when I was tasked at finding useful ways to implement it at the university where I work.  You can follow Chalupa at @lebowskipodcast and Liz at @LizBR.
  6. Other blogs - There are many blogs on the interwebs containing pertinent information about your favorite films, actors and directors.  Some of the blogs we read include:
  7. Dudeism - This is a tongue-in-cheek religion created by Oliver Benjamin and based out of Thailand.  Lots of deep thinking going on here.
  8. Dudespaper - This is an excellent online magazine ran by the fellas at Dudeism and devoted to the lifestyle of the deeply casual.  I must admit I'm a little biased because I'm not just a reader, I'm also a contributor.
  9. Lebowski Fest - If you haven't heard of the annual festivals ran by Will Russell and Scott Shuffitt yet, I'm afraid you might still have amateur status, but that's OK.  We're here to educate you.  These festivals used to occur only in Louisville, KY but over the years they have expanded their reach and are coming to 15 cities around the continental US this year.  Hopefully you can find one near you.

These are just a few online resources I came up with off the top of my head, but is by no means comprehensive.  You might also be interested in checking out our Links page where we've tried to compile many online resources we have discovered and have been told about by people like you.  If you have any additions, please let us know.

In the meantime, we hope you're able to enjoy the 4th of July weekend and please don't blow your hands off.  That makes it very hard to browse the internet and visit us later.

The Dude Abides.
