"Follow your bliss" - Dan Harmon
They already made the decisions. You just don’t know it yet. There’s nothing we can do at this point
Dan Harmon is a hero because he opens our minds to taking a step back, analyzing ourselves and asking “what do you know?” His self honesty isn’t a curse. It’s a blessing and it’s what makes him relatable. It’s what used to make Community relatable.
More than a few people have asked me where all the Community blogging has gone.
The reason I stopped and only started blogging about Dan and Harmontown and Erin, etc is because of course I was pretty crushed that Dan was no longer a part of Community .
So here’s my compromise: I’m going to keep blogging about Community AND Dan…but only blogging things from the Dan Harmon era of Community…nothing from season 4.
That is all
Amazing? Crazy? Wow.
I didn’t get up and do a testimonial, but believe me a few of you got me pretty misty eyed sharing yours. The past 2 days have been an emotional roller coaster of awkward hellos that make me hate myself and fun experiences meeting other incredible fans.
I was falling out of love with Community. Obviously it’s the best show that’s ever existed, but since I am and always will be loyal to Dan first and foremost, I was starting to get kind of “meh” on the whole concept of season 4 and I hadn’t watched many of my favorite episodes in a while. Then being at the convention made me remember how much I love this show and all the warm feelings I have for it which I will never be able to deny. I’ve never been surrounded by such energetic and loving and passionate people. Of course it hurts terribly that Dan isn’t a part of season 4, but going to this convention reminded me to appreciate the amazing fans and cast and writers.
I’m sorry if I didn’t get to say hi to some of you. Part of being a Community fan means being a little bit weird in your own right and I’m not one to approach people but to those that did come up to me and that I did get to talk to…you are all excellent people. This has been a great and memorable weekend and I’d love to do it again.
I was there all day today wearing a Harmontown shirt. I’ll be there tomorrow too. GET AT ME and say hi
