Welcome to the official blog for the Lebowski Podcast.  It's hard to believe it's August and I've been doing this for 8 months now.  We don't have an 8th episode, but this is the 8th month the podcast has been around.  I never really knew how big this thing would get, but it looks like it's going to be around for a while.

Sloppy Joe recounts the story of losing his prom date to The Clash


Junior prom - I grew up on the west side of Denver and the night of our junior prom coincided with a Clash concert at Red Rocks.  A bunch of us had secured a room at the Sheraton to hang out and party after the prom.  As we were walking into the Sheraton lobby, a man was forcibly ejected from the bar.  He was dressed in leather, torn shirt, big boots and a big, multi-colored mohawk.  He got up and started cussing at the bouncer in the bar.  His accent was definitely English.  When he saw us, a bunch of 17 year olds in tuxedos and fancy dresses, he stopped short, signaled the rest of the band in the bar, and came over to talk.  They were obviously interested in the 8 or 9 teenage girls.  The prom group headed up to our room and started to party a bit.  Soon, there was a knock at the door.  There was the band with a couple of guitars and bottles of booze.  They came in and we sang Rock the Kasbah, London Calling and just jammed.  After a while, we noticed that the room had gotten a lot quieter and absent females.  The Clash had surreptitiously left the room, one at a time, with our dates!  The remaining boys sat around and tried to put a good face on but our hearts just were not in it.  We had all just blown several hundred dollars for this and we were now all dateless.

About 30 minutes later, the girls came back.  "They are animals" they said of the band.  Then the cops arrived and we all made a hasty exit.

I still love The Clash and BAD and always smile when I hear any songs.
Sloppy Joe's Name E-mail

One of our good friends, Sloppy Joe, wrote in to tell us the origin of his name.

This is an enquiry e-mail via http://lebowskipodcast.com from:
Sloppy Joe

Chalupa commented on the origin of this nick name and I thought I would delay responding until I knew about his.
But, since the story is not that interesting, I did not want to create an air of drama and intrigue then bore everyone.
In my younger days, I was able to do a fairly accurate Axel Rose impression.  I had the nasally voice and goofy dance down. It was the hit of parties (after everyone was a bit liquored up).  Adam Sandler then came out with a song about the lunchlady (Lunchlady Land) and he does a very good Axel in that song when he sings about the lunchlady's friend, Sloppy Joe.
My friends heard that, remembered my Axel Rose and started calling me Sloppy Joe, Slop, Sloppy Joe.  It has stuck ever since.
Sorry it is not more interesting.  Someday, I may tell you about the Junior Prom and having all of our prom dates stolen by The Clash.

Here's an "anonymous" email that was submitted to the web site.  There's bad grammar, bad spelling, incomplete thoughts and sentences.  I found out his name was Aaron and wrote him back.  Unfortunately, he never responded.
