If you think you should be featured in our listener spotlight,

Recent Dude moment: I forgot to pay one of my credit card bills, they called and said it was due and I answered and said "oh, ah, okay............ahh, I'll just slip it under the door." The dickhead on the other side got a bit nasty and said "I'm not sure what you mean, Sir, but we need your payment in as soon as possible, would you like to pay over the phone?" I answered and said "I'm sorry, I wasn't listening." Then I hung up and payed online. Bunch of assholes.
How long have you been listening? Year and a half or so? maybe a bit more?
Favorite episode or podcast moment: Your first one, first podcast....was great to see more dudeism being discussed on the net. Perfect use for podcasting. Loved it! Very casual, nice podpad you got there I said to myself...completely unspoiled. I dig the way you do business.
How does The Big Lebowski apply to your every day life? Inspires me to be relaxed when people get very undude around me. When someone blows a cork, I try to fall back on "that's interesting, that's interesting, man" or "far out."
Are you a practicing Dudeist? Does the Pope shit in the woods? :-)
How many times have you seen The Big Lebowski? Got no leads there...maybe 300 times? I keep a copy in my ride and put it on a lot while driving around.
Best Bowling Score: 115
Favorite Lebowski book: No book, but Wikipedia articles like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Big_Lebowski
What is the best Lebowski reference or item you have seen in pop culture? On CNN once, one of the talking heads mentioned that he was very dude-like in a quick discourse between a couple of news casters. I thought that was cool.
What is your favorite movie with a Lebowski actor/actress in it? Raising Arizona ...a classic! It rocks!
