Dan rapping in Somerville while Erin’s camper, my mom, and myself were all on stage. Thank you Conrad Hudson for recording this!
East Providence show
I went to Harmontown again tonight and again it was amazing. The show was a lot shorter because there was another show after it, so D&D didn’t go on for too long but it was still a great show. Dan saw me and asked if my mom was there again but thankfully this show was 18+ so she didn’t need to come.
Afterwards we went to the Whiskey Republic and got to hang out with everyone for a little while and they were all so nice! I got to talk to Dan again and when I told him I was nervous he said he was too. We talked for a little bit and he really is the nicest person in the world. When we were getting ready to leave I wanted to say goodbye so he came over and hugged me.
These past two nights were incredible. I love everyone on this tour. They’re all so nice and wonderful and I had so much fun at the shows. I’m so happy (and still in shock) that I actually got to meet Dan. He is truly an amazing person.
Thank you so much to everyone for being so incredibly nice. I showed up really early and was hanging out across the street with some friends when we saw their van pull up. My friend Sam dragged me by the arm over to them because I was too terrified to walk over. Dan and Erin said hello and hugged me and I was shaking for the next 20 minutes. Erin had us help bring in the merch so we could get in early and then we got to go down to the green room. Dustin came by and said hello and then Dan came down and hung out for a while and most of it got recorded. Dan, I’m sorry I was so awkward and nervous and couldn’t say much, but getting to talk to you was amazing.
During the show, Erin brought up one of her old campers, so Dan brought me up and then my mother. He did a momma rap while we were still up there and apologized to my mom during it and I got to join in on the “Come on down to Harmontown” song. It was so surreal. The show itself was incredible and hilarious, I was cracking up the entire time.
After the show I got to talk to Dustin, Erin, and Spencer who are all amazing people and they all signed my poster for me. Dan had a constant line of people waiting to talk to him for at least two hours and he actually took the time to really talk to everyone that went up to him. He’s the nicest person. I went up to talk to him as the line was dying down but the people who work there were kicking us out so I just had him sign my poster.
I honestly still can’t believe any of this actually happened. Thank you so much to everyone who made this night possible and thank you Dan Harmon for everything!
I KNOW!!!! I’m still freaking out about it!!
Yes, I emailed Dustin after he tweeted about the Harmontown data entry and him and Erin emailed me back saying they wanted me to help with the book. I helped find dates for some posts that were missing them, find posts for the Community chapter, order posts, and format them. I still can’t really believe it all happened!
Dustin Marshall and Erin McGathy thank you so much for the opportunity to help with this book! I became a huge fan of Dan because of his online writings, so I can’t even begin to say how much of an honor it was to get to help with this. I was planning on getting the book signed at the show, but then I opened it up today and found this and I haven’t been able to stop grinning yet. I’m in complete awe and shock. Thank you so, so much Dan and Erin. I can’t wait to meet you all next week!
This is what my secret santa made me for Christmas and it’s perfect
I bought my tickets for Harmontown in Somerville. Still trying to make it work out that I can actually get in even though I’m not 21 yet, but right now, I have tickets to Harmontown. Actual tickets to see Dan Harmon, live in person.
Something along the lines of
I listened to that part of the podcast at least 20 times the first night it came out. I was just so shocked. Someone who went to the show had told me that he mentioned it but actually hearing him talk about it was incredible!
I’m not the best with putting my thoughts into words and I have a lot of thoughts on Dan Harmon, so here goes nothing.
What’s so great about Dan Harmon? Everything. Simply put the man is a genius, but more specifically, he is an extremely talented, hilarious, inspiring person. I found out who he was because of Community and the more I learned about him the more I loved him. He started Channel 101 with Rob Schrab. They were putting hilarious videos on the internet pre-youtube. The two of them also made Heat Vision and Jack which should’ve gotten picked up because the pilot episode was perfect. If you haven’t seen it, do yourself a favor and look it up.
He also has some of the most incredible online posts. Those are what really made me love him as much as I do. He’s so honest and really puts himself out there because he wants people to like him and he doesn’t want to be alone. He talks about his views on himself and society and it’s poetic and eye opening at the same time. He has an incredible way with words and everything he writes makes me want to laugh, cry, or both. I find him very relatable. He tends to be able to find words for things that I’ve never been able to. He has a great way of speaking too. In every interview I’ve seen of him, he has so much passion for what he does and it’s incredibly endearing. And now he has Harmontown, which I’m so grateful is a podcast. He just talks about the most random things for a couple of hours but it’s all amazing. The way his mind works is just incredible. I could sit and listen to him talk for hours and hours.
If you want to know what’s so great about Dan Harmon, read anything he’s written that you can find. Read his blog posts and his tweets. Watch his channel 101 videos. Watch Heat Vision and Jack and Community. Listen to Harmontown. He puts so much of himself into everything he does. He’s a brilliant person.
