Five years ago yesterday, I posted E.D. – Music, Movies, Etc.‘s first piece—a review of the film La La Land—officially launching this website, as well as getting myself back into public writing for the first time in eight years (my last public writing had been a contest winning poem named “Snow”). Since that first post, David Malone and I have been able to have some great fun writing and hosting articles to post on our website here, and I have been able to put my own writing and publishing into full swing. You can follow David Malone here or over on Twitter as @theedblogadmin. You can follow my writing and publishing at my site The Flummoxed, in addition of course to this site, or on Twitter as @AHeavyMetalPen.
To celebrate E.D.‘s five year anniversary, I want first to link my favorite article by each E.D. contributor, and second to link E.D.‘s top five pieces by how well they have been read (according to WordPress statistics). Enjoy!

Thank you to everyone who has visited E.D. – Music, Movies, Etc. and read our articles here over the last five years. We have had fun, and I hope you have too!
Thanks for having me on here. You know I’ll have something else (long of course) for the future (aka my 100 East Asian film essay or perhaps a long film essay if you like).
But there are a lot of articles that I like here as well.
