I watched the Dreamer movie mentioned in this FUN episode and found it quite inspiring. It was fun to see who I could recognize during the FIRST related segments other than Dean and Woodie.

The last 20 minutes was a long commercial selling registrations for a Dreamer Festival" hosted by the Archangel Academy who also appears to be instrumental in getting the movie made. Since registering to watch the movie, I have been getting 2 emails a day to remind me to watch the movie, promote it to people I know and to register for other events set up by Archangel. Unfortunately, there is no unsubscribe link in any of the emails.

I highly recommend having a whole separate email account for any “dirty work” you have to do (basically any website that uses your email address as payment). Not only does it keep the cesspool of advertisements contained, it’s absolutely hilarious to look through every few months.
