The other day I found an article written by Hayley Rafner. Her father worked as a set director on The Big Lebowski and she's one of the kids in the Little Lebowski Urban Achievers photo hanging on Mr. Lebowski's wall. Obviously we had to interview her.

In 2007 we had the great idea of creating a full length commentary track for The Big Lebowski. The Coens aren't into DVD extras and we still haven't found one on the internet yet. We used the 10th Anniversary copy of the DVD and there are instructions at the beginning to synchronize.

Jeff DeLucia and Chalupa had a second phone conversation that turned out better than the first. Many random topics were discussed from how Freud relates to Lebowsk characters, different films Jeff has worked on over the years, Roger Deakins, and how to contact actors. If you like Jeff, be sure to check out Episode 44 - Crew member Jeff DeLucia.
This ends our episodes for 2010. We have some great episodes coming in 2011. Stay tuned for a Valentines gift guide later this month.

Earlier this summer I had the pleasure of chatting with someone from the crew of The Big Lebowski, Jeff DeLucia. Jeff is a card-holding union member and has been working on the sets of TV shows and films for the past 20 years. Jeff has a lot of interesting things to say about lighting a scene, and great stories from his past jobs. The audio is a little rough on this one. Had some technical difficulties with the recording. The whole interview is available in our member section.

The day before the 9th Annual Lebowski Fest officially started, there was an event at Carmichael's Bookstore in Louisville for Aaron Jaffe and Ed Comentale's book, The Year's Work in Lebowski Studies. Ed and Aaron are no strangers to the podcast. They were our guests back on Episode 15. Jaffe and Comentale allowed me to record the discussion between them and the audience at the event. I hope this gives you a good idea of what it was like.
