A true master of his craft.
I’m looking forward to many more Dan Rodandan master classes. His commitment to the art of shapeshifting is hauntingly beautiful and I will never be the same.
There's a lot to unpack here.
But Dan's sitting at a bag claim in Sacramento, waiting for luggage sent to Scranton. If you have his new number, check on him. If he's still alive, stage an intervention.
