How is Tanner doing?
The doctor did call the other day with results from all of Tanner's x-ray's and testing. No surprising, they can't find anything wrong with him! That's a good thing, but it continues to be frustrating that we can't get to the bottom of why Tanner spits up almost everything he eats and that he's gained very little weight in the past three months! Our next stop on this journey is an appointment with a GI specialist at Johns Hopkins sometime next month. I'll keep ya posted!
Where did the name ED SOUTH come from?
Good question! It all started back in 1991 when I was part of a "pirate" radio station that a friend of mine built in his attic. Since our operation was only questionably legal, we all came up with fake DJ names. At the time there were quite a few DJ's on the air with the last names of North and West...so I jokingly picked South. We did that radio station on-and-off for two years, and when I got involved with the radio station at college I used the name Mr. Ed, and that was pretty much the end of "Ed South."
In 1996 I wrote and produced a play called "Barn of Thought". The main character's name was Ken, but when I ended up playing the character on stage I decided to change his name to Ed and I remembered my "old" last name and "South" came along for the ride as well! A year later I started doing a public access TV show, and thought South sounded better than my real last name, so that's when I kind of adopted it as my stage name.
Nowadays "Ed South" has come in handy on the internet, where you need to protect yourself with a certain level of anonymity.
What's your favorite Disney movie?
If there was one movie I could name as my favorite Disney movie, then I probably wouldn't love Disney as much as I do. There are so many great Disney movies, and so many of those that hold a special place in my heart that I can't just name one.
First of all, there are two types of Disney films: Animated and Live Action!
I really love just about all of the animated films that Walt Disney Feature Animation has created over the past 70-some years. I could probably single out The Little Mermaid as my favorite animated film because it came out when I was younger and it was really the first "great" animated film released during my life time. However, I also think Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio, Dumbo, Bambi, Cinderella, Peter Pan, Lady and the Tramp, The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, and Lilo & Stitch are some of the greatest movies ever made. Of all the animated films Disney has made, the only four that I really don't like that much are: The Sword in the Stone, The Black Cauldron, Atlantis, andBrother Bear.
When it comes to live action films, some of my all-time favorite movies are the Disney comedies that came out shortly after Walt's death in 1966. When The Walt Disney Company was suddenly without their leader, they played it safe and produced movies that were very close to the formula that the studio found success with during Walt's reign. The results are some FANTASTIC movies like: Gus, The World's Greatest Athlete, Blackbeard's Ghost, Snowball Express, The Strongest Man in the World, Superdad, and The Barefoot Executive.
There are also TONS of great classic films that Walt Disney himself produced, not to mention great contemporary films, including three of my absolute favorites: Cheetah (1989), Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken (1991), andHoney, I Blew Up the Kid (1992).
Aren't you glad you asked!?
