Okay, okay. I know I said Friday for the last contest, but new shit has come to light, man.
First, I’m running the #CoffinHop , man. I gotta keep an eye on everybody else.
Then, I had a good time rambling on for R.L. Treadway about “Why Horror Isn’t Scary Anymore” which you can check out on her site tomorrow.
THEN… best part of the story… dream come true… I got an email from The Dudley Lama himself, asking if I could whip something up for possible inclusion in the upcoming LEBOWSKI 101 book, kind of a treatise on all things Lebowski. Being a devout Brother Shamus, as well as a long-standing member (and licensed priest) of the Church of the Latter Day Dude, I was left about as brainlessly overwhelmed as if I’d just downed a half dozen Caucasians. (Check out the pic there of me and The Miz and #1 son for Halloween 2008. I’m the Dude in the Dudely raiment.) Suffice it to say, I am now hard-at-work trying to research my article on the ties between Detective Fiction through the ages, and His Dudeness, Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski. Praise Be to CCR.
In any case here are the winners of the first contest, as drawn by #2 son as he sang the “Daddy Ate My French Fries” tune from Adventure Time, in his skivvies, with a mouthful of pumpkin-cinnamon cookies:
KYM AMARAL & HEATHER POWERS
