In the latest (6/08) DJ Dan podcast, (see clue thread here http://forum.thefuselage.com/...ad.php?t=49411
), the "man" aka some anonymous Hanso flunky with a funny accent, is making threats to our paranoid and, well, rather loud and crazy hero, DJ Dan.
It's time to take a stand. A stand for weird little people everywhere, who are brave enough to Shutdown! the man. They can track down DJ Dan. They can call him during his podcasts. They can even take his Jeep away. But they can't take all the Jeeps away. No, not if we hold virtual hands, sing campfire songs, and take a stand. Or whatever. Something inspiring like that.
So, I say, and proudly:
I'm DJ DAN !
Now, Who's with me?
(sign below, if you too are DJ Dan)
(If you want to further show your support, add "I'm DJ DAN !" to your signature with a link to this thread.)
Update 6/9/06 - Fanning the flames on this grassroots fire
So I woke up this morning, and the first thing I thought was, what can I, DJ Dan, do to show my support for DJ Dan ? Rosa Parks had her seat at the front of the bus - so that's been done. Ghandi had his self-imposed starvation - um, not my style. So I say, let's go another direction
(heh, subtle monster.com career advice reference there ... nevermind). I say, let's EAT TACOS FOR DJ DAN ! Yes, any tacos come my way, I'm going to crunch down on them with gusto, 'cause I'm taking a stand. Someone's got to.
I'm DJ DAN ! and I'm eating Tacos!
Once, again, who's with me ?
(if you have already declared your DJ DANship, you can just edit your previous post to eat for DJ DAN, or post again, whatever, ... who am I to tell you what to do, the MAN? No way!)
(if you are taco intolerant, eat something else for Dan, that's what all those food smilies are for)
Update 6/12/06 (early afternoon) - Waiting for Mr. Good-Dan
It started as a beautiful day for eating tacos and watching the World Cup
, but now the U.S. has been crushed by the superior Czech team, and here, in the early afternoon, still no sign of the promised podcast. Is DJ DAN a soccer fan, and too busy to update his website? or is something more nefarious at play here? Has the man taken DJ DAN's Jeep away? Will Italy turn Ghana into guano?
Stay tuned, DJ Dan Fans, as our taco-eating soccer-watching vigil continues...
Update 6/13/06 - Double Shutdown!
Two, count em, two podcasts, one by DJ DAN, and one by us, the DJ DANs.
You figure it out.

Update 7/12/06 - I'm DJ DAN ! fan podcast contest
Your video or audio submission must be posted online in time for the LOST event at Comic-Con Saturday, July 22 at 10:30AM PST.
Deadline extended indefinitely (since we are all slackers and no one that I know of is actually working on a podcast, and I have barely started myself)... oh well, this is just for fun anyway right?
Edit: Okay, we took a stand, but then, being of creative and whimsical temperment, we got distracted ... and, well, we fell off the stand.
Not every plan comes together, and that's okay, that's our nature. We are not, after all, "the Man." We must follow our whims
and release our creative muses
, wherever they might lead us
