When asked about the idea of shutting it down, I told the Founding Dudes that its absence will most likely go universally unnoticed. LF's social media integration (Facebook / Twitter) is strong enough to get it into the next round robin (#amiwrong). It is a much smoother way for them to connect with Achievers. But just in case people see this, thank you very much for reading. There have been a couple instances when people have mentioned to me at a Lebowski Fest that they've read it, which is always surprising and flattering.
Favorite posts from my tenure as the Lebowski Fest Blogger:
- Jury Duty, which I used to convince the Founding Dudes to let me write.
- My open letter to John Goodman (but I did really love my "Stranger" open letter too!)
- The photos I took at the 9th Annual
- Chicago's Jesus Duel (with special mention to any post involving Vaudezilla)
- A small "Behind The Music" on the Nightline story.
For those looking to feed their Lebowski fix by way of a blog, I can't recommend lebowskipodcast.com strongly enough. In addition to the podcast maintained by Fest-regular Chalupa, the blog on the podcast's website is consistently updated with Achiever-minded stories grabbed from the fringes of the Internet.
Thank you to Will & Scott (the Founding Dudes) for allowing me the privilege of sharing my like love of Lebowski on their website, and in turn with all of you. This news won't stop me from writing about Lebowski Fests in the future (they just won't be here, but on my personal blog instead). More importantly, I can't wait to catch ya later on down the trail at an upcoming Lebowski Fest.
Goodnight, sweet prince.[TQ]

Oh my, what a beautiful web address it is:
Go watch that video.
Go watch that video. (Mr. Lebowski asked me to repeat that)
I knew they were coming.
If you read* my posts, you knew it too.
You'd think I had one leg longer than the other - the amount of circles I walked around that Nightline camera crew for I attempted to get into the background of more shots that I could count... I succeeded twice.
Paused DVR glory! You're allowed to blink once as long as you don't blink the second time I appear in the background.
It was great to see friends like the entire "Chinamen with Lebowski's Legs" Philly foursome get a moment in front of the camera. However, it was an utter shame the famous Mrs. Jamtoss fell victim to the red pen of Nightline's editor.
The highlight of the overall strike of a piece was it's conclusion. I was on the lane with the eventual "Best Walter" (and Trivia 2nd place winner I might add!) and pictured the before and after of the most clutch roll in Lebowski Fest history!
Dios mio, Bob.
*If you haven't read my posts... I guess you just weren't listening... but I do recommend at least two of my posts from this past July:
My Favorite Picture From the 9th Annual

"Walter, if you're there, pick up the fucking phone man. C'mon Walter pick up the fucking phone man. C'mon Walter, pick it up, man, this is an emergency..."
Achievers, you need to set your DVR / TiVo / VCR / Betamax / Hired hobo with video camera to record tonight's Nightline on ABC!
Late word came out today (click here for the article: http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/slideshow/big-lebowski-lives-12304530) about when the feature many of us saw filmed this past July in Louisville during the 9th Annual Lebowski Fest.
I'm sorry I have been as blogging as heavily as I have in the past - they got us working in shifts.[TQ]
