Name: Julian Ayrs

Nickname: The Tattler
Location: West Hollywood (CA)
Occupation: Film Critic & Society Page Editor
Personal websites, blogs, MySpace, etc:

Art (Painting & Sculpture), HD Video captures, rummaging through dusty antiques stores for lost treasures, yard sales, movie memorabilia, piano-playing (keyboard in the park), and boning up on my Big Lebowski folk lore, dude!

Favorite Lebowski prop or set piece:
The car, dude!

Favorite Lebowski character:
The Dude, of course. But, Jesus comes within a sliver!

Recent Dude moment:
Trying to avoid being trampled by Big Lebowski fans at a midnight screening in Hollywood!  They're animals out here!

How long have you been listening?
Since the inception!

Favorite episode or podcast moment:
Like, just betcha, I can't pick just one.  All Big Lebowski podcasts are gems, 'ya know?

How does The Big Lebowski apply to your every day life?
The laid-back - "what the fu** - attitude" is always ripe with me, Dude! I'm also always remindin' myself to steer clear of pricey heisted carpets (like the one featured in the movie) whenever I'm toking on a big fat doobie. Why? Because, I'd surely get lost in the dazzling intricate patterns, for days on end. Oh, what a tale I'd weave from that tapestry, then!

Are you a practicing Dudeist?
In some respects, yes!  I can raucaously quote trippy off-the-wall "dialogue" in unison with fans at packed screenings and also expound on the cultural integrity of the Lebowski philosophy at whim.  Have yet to make a Lebowski fest yet, but it is in the offing, I expect - Dude!

How many times have you seen The Big Lebowski?
Approximately 8 side-splitting times.  I'm a newbie, I guess.  Who's keeping tabs on the Lebowski data, anyhoo?

Best Bowling Score:
Can't keep it on the alley, dude.  The smoke gets in my eyes, I guess!

Favorite Lebowski book:
The Big Lebowski: The Making of a Coen Brothers Film

What is the best Lebowski reference or item you have seen in pop culture?
A poster I used for my blog post once.

What is your favorite movie with a Lebowski actor/actress in it?
Boogie Nights and Hannibal with Julianne Moore

And, in closing, I should like to poignantly (and nostalgically note) that when the Dude uttered those immortal words - "and what have-you" - he had me!
