I'm Ed the Sock, Canadian icon & TV legend. I generally say what you're thinking, but out loud. I went away for a while and the world went to Hell. Now I'm back to bring sense to the senselessness with my online channel FUN - The FU_Network. A...
On Citytv and Muchmusic, and TV channels around the world, my humour guided you to see through the hype-machines, PR spin and media manipulations of the music industry, celebrity culture and political machines. I spoke to you and for you and together we formed a mighty force in the War on Stupid.
Then I went away to write my memoirs and look what happened. Tree Toss. Speakers Corner. Loud. Electric Circus. Fromage - all swept away, taking our fun and gleeful anarchy with it. Fake news, alternative facts, micro-aggressions, safe spaces, tiki torches, 24 hour cable news amplifying the loudest and stupidest voices while drowning out any voice of reason. But I am louder and with me as your megaphone, we will again wage the War on Stupid through my online channel FUN - The FU_Network.
Help me bring back FUN by supporting our IndieGoGo Campaign - We're producing new versions of your old favourites like the ones above plus brand-new shows with that sly, subversive spirit that is truly Canadian. So Ask Me Anything about anything. But don't be an idiot.
EDIT 1: WOW! 7 Hours! I'm taking a break, but keep the questions coming. I'll be back shortly. We are now nearly across the $10,000.00 mark on the Crowdfunding Campaign. When we cross that milestone. Ed's Going Live. And answering questions with Videos. Keep it coming. BRB
EDIT 2: OK, I'm back. Let's (Continue To) Do This. You people are insane. Just the way I like it.
EDIT 3: Alright Everybody. It's past midnight. We just passed 10,000 clams. This has been incredible. It's officially time to wish you all a #HappyCanadaDay and it's time For Ed The Sock to go live with Liana and say thank you!
EDIT 4: Big shout-out to all the people - over 600 commentors with questions - and the over 100K people who followed the AMA today. We're keeping it going all weekend, so keep asking me anything. Except stupid questions!
EDIT 5: Oh, and the guy who's been helping me with this says I should say thank you "for the 2 X Reddit Gold." But I have no clue what that is. So, thank you? Whatever. Hey - I was asked earlier about my worst interviews and I promised video. Here's one about Vanilla Ice - https://www.facebook.com/edthesock.funetworktv/videos/2314804655203991/
and again on Youtube, for those that quit Facebook
