I don’t use this forum often for personal reasons. This podcast is about having a few drinks with some friends, talking about movies, and, oh yeah, we happen to record those conversations.
Well, This posting is going to be a bit different.
Tee Morris has been a part of this podcast from the beginning. When Tony #2 and first sat down in front of his computer with one of those free stick microphones that you used to get with computers (Do they still give those away with new PCs?), we had a copy of Podcasting For Dummies sitting right there next to us. Tee co-wrote Podcasting for Dummies. I’ve since been able to get Tee to sign that copy.
Tee has come on the show a few times each time is more epic than the time before. From the insanely long ‘interview’ we did with Tee and Pip to promote Double Trouble to Tee’s astounding work on Episode 100 to help us blast through reviewing 100 movies in 100 minutes. Just Tuesday I got a tweet from Tee offering himself up for an episode on Avatar. He had apparently seen it the night before and was itching to talk about it.
Wednesday brought shocking news. Natalie Morris, the woman Tee married and mother to their daughter, Sonic Boom, died suddenly. It was completely unexpected.
I’ve known Tee for a couple of years now. We’ve shared amazing scotch, he gave me dieting tips for Tony’s Losing It and talked to me on a number of occasions during the stressful period that I was going through when Julie was in the Hospital for a month leading up to the birth of Erin.
You might know Tee as a podcaster, author, actor or showman. I add to that list friend. Tee is a great guy. Very giving and as genuinely nice a person as I’ve ever known.
Friends, fans… I’m making a request. Show Tee that he is appreciated, not only as a podcaster, author, movie reviewer… but as a parent. Because that’s a gig that he’s got to do solo now. As you can imagine there are immediate bills that need attended to and the community has already come together and, from what I gather, taken care of the immediate needs. Anything more that will be donated to Tee and Sonic Boom will go into a trust fund for SB.
If you have enjoyed what we do here, and especially if you’ve had 1/10th of the fun listening to the episodes that Tee has been on with us as we had recording them, please give.
