Do-Gooder Film School

After being understimulated for much of my life, moving to Washington, DC has brought on much needed overstimulation. 

Only problem now is that I don't have time to do all the exciting DC stuff that lured me up here in the first place. 

Or my laundry. 

I did, however, briefly meet Ralph Nader while waiting for a table on a recent Saturday night at Busboys & Poets. 

Here's some of the other things that have kept me from blogging/sanity in the last few months.

Reporting on the public media as an intern with Current newspaper.

Avoiding hooligans on dangerous city streets. 
Lots of commuting. 

Investigative journalist David Kirby spoke about his book Death at Seaworld: Shamu and the Dark Side of Killer Whales in Captivity.

Also present were Dr. Naomi Rose, a senior scientist at Humane Society International, and Courtney Vail, campaign director for the Whales and Dolphin Conservation Society, who addressed how damaging it is for orcas to be kept as play things for human entertainment. 
Ocean Doctor David E. Guggenheim gave a presentation on ocean life, how we landlubbers are wrecking it, and how it may be possible for us to one day live under the sea.

He also mentioned an excellent app for those who want to consume seafood responsibly.
