ANNOUNCEMENT!!!

I'M OPENING THIS UP TO 20 PEOPLE DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND (we're already half full after less than 24 hours).
It would be a shame if someone was left out because they weren't on craftster for a day. Also it should be a lot easier to organize than the last swap I organized where we had multiple sendouts... All that said, we're still nearly half full after less than 24 hours so get in quick if you want in. If we fill by Friday I'll try to post partners this weekend. I want to try to match you up by your questionnaires.

I know that sometimes pm's get lost around here so if you sign up and don't hear back within 24 hours pm me again. I may not have gotten it or I may have had a life that night but either way better safe than sorry. I'm usually home and on craftster by 6 CST and get to pm's around 7 ( though tomorrow I may go out after work.)

Also - SHARING INSPIRATION is encouraged. This will be my 3rd movie swap (the first my partner had to drop out a week before sendouts) and I know it can be really hard to come up with things realting to a movie. So we have two options - I'll start a seperate inspiration thread or we can just have all the ideas on this thread (thoughts?). I know that I got all my ideas for the Hunter S Thompson/Fear and Loathing Swap by brainstorming. I didn't use any of the ideas from the brainstorming but it got the gears turning. I just wrote out a list as it popped into my head and  all of a sudden I couldn't stop thinking of things.

I'm already thinking of Maude's artwork... strongly vaginal...

Ok, I was just looking at IMDB for some inspiration and I can't believe I forgot about John Taruro's character--Jesus the bowler wiggling around in his tight bowling jumpsuit!  Everytime I see that it cracks me up!

How can you forget The Jesus!? "Don't fuck with the Jesus, meng!"

I say keep it simple and on this one thread. I love the idea of brainstorming...that really helped me with the Princess Bride swap!

I was just having a Princess Bride discussion at work yesterday. I love Wesley... and Billy Crystal kicked ass. We also talked of the Goonies. You guys do know that Sam wise the blonde hobbit is Mikey from The Goonies... right? And Rudy from Rudy!

Sean Astin is my Homie!

as far as inspiration threads the only reason I was thinking keep it seperate is so all inspiration things are in one place. That way if you're crunched for ideas you can get ideas without weeding through other stuff.  that and you only need one for all rounds of the swap. Thoughts?

I just signed up! Yay!

For those of you who don't know: there is a Lebowskifest every so often in big cities around the country. Their website is a good place for inspiration! Hopefully there'll be one close to Boston sometime so I can go!

I really want to get a friend of mine to dress up like walter for one of those but he won't do it! He says nobody told him he looked like John Goodman until he got fat. Pfft - he always looked like John Goodman it's just that if they said it when he was thinner it wouldn't have been appropriate! Anyone been to a Lebowski fest?

Nope - we're not filled up yet! Close though. Not that you couldn't start on your packages now - and I believe there was a request for the dude's sweater so I could match you up with that person if you started on it! Partners will be posted by next weekend but like I said I like to research the pairs so it may take a few days after signups end.

I just wanted to let everyone know that I will be gone for a few days at the end of August and will be unreachable. A friend of mine has a family lake house in the country and just happened to have it over my (golden) birthday weekend! It'll be the weekend of August 26-27 so we'll all have partners for a week by then and sendouts won't be for another two weeks so it shouldnt cause any problems at that point in the swap. I will be gone for two full days if not three but I'll post more when I know for sure.

And I know it's stupid to let "strangers" who have my address know that I'm going away but I have a house mate and a guard fish. "Don't fuck with the Jesus."

Oh yeah - I saw this years and years ago and I'm so glad it (or something just like it) is still around - Random Lebowski Quote Generator! http://www.thugbot.net/features/lebowski/

I think it's time for an inspiration thread!
