I saw my first published piece of writing go live in early 2009 at the age of 15, but I wouldn’t find any measure of success publishing other writing (mostly because I didn’t try, being too busy with high school and college, and I won’t count social media) until late 2016/early 2017 when my good friend David Malone and I started a website: “E.D. – Music, Movies, Etc.”
Mr. Malone and I were just two IT guys who started this site almost as a joke, hence the “E.D. (Ethan. David. and a reference to one of men’s greatest fears)”, but we also wanted to try to self-publish, at least in some small way, articles about the things we already loved to investigate together: music, especially hard rock and heavy metal, and films. We also had a goal of reviewing the complete discographies of the “The Big 4 of Thrash Metal” – Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, and Megadeth. Although we have started but not yet completed that particular mission, we have, from time to time, discussed doing so either on the site or in podcast form.
