My self-summary
Hello! I am Dan. I generally divide my time reading about political philosophy or American history, writing essays, watching movies or television, playing video or board games, running or kayaking, or just chilling at the bar with some lighter reading material.

Like to think of myself as pretty easy going. I make bad puns on a frequent basis. I enjoy baking more than cooking. And I really, really want a dog in the near future.

Also trying to be more active in the political sphere. Always been aware; always cared a lot. Trying to do more to actively fight The Administration.

That's me in a nutshell. (Cue the scene from Austin Powers where he pretends to be stuck in a nutshell.)
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to enjoy it.

Reading and writing political essays.

Fighting fascism and tyranny.
I’m really good at
Making Ghostbusters references.

Staying up way too late looking up somewhat pointless information online.

Ignoring the word count on my word processor.
The first things people usually notice about me

Or my glasses.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Obviously, the following lists are way, way longer than the sampling here.

I read mostly nonfiction. Currently reading nonstop about the presidents.

Ghostbusters, Gojira, Mad Max: Fury Road, anything Edgar Wright does, Stanley Kubrick films (things with great structure, and gives me reason to re-watch them for something new), and I do tend to see all the Marvel movies (they're fun, even if I think they're a bit too formulaic and safe for their own good)

Community, Parks & Rec, The Wire, Lady Dynamite, One Mississippi, Atlanta

Sufjan Stevens, Robyn, Talking Heads, Dizzy Gillespie, the Hamilton soundtrack, many things encompassing a diversity of genres

Y: The Last Man, Bitch Planet, Ms. Marvel, Gotham Central, Saga, Monstress

99% Invisible, Infinite Monkey Cage, The Weekly Planet, Serial, Keepin' It 1600, Do Go On
Six things I could never do without
Board/video games
The internet
Frozen yogurt
My kayak/lakes
A word processor
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why do people pronounce it "ree-cee's pee-cee's"? It already rhymes if you say it correctly!

How, after all this concussion nonsense, is the NFL still so damn popular?

Is Shark Week actually good for sharks?
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading about the Presidents.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Godzilla was the first thing I ever got nerdy about. I don't think I can talk anyone into suddenly liking it themselves, but I'm confident I can convince most people that they're actually more interesting films than they get credit for.
You should message me if
You want to get a drink or tea or something, or you have something you're super into that you love talking about and want to explain it to someone who probably doesn't know much about it, but will be excited and interested to hear about it. Or you know of a rally or protest somewhere.
The two of us
