Hi everybody! Welcome to the blog where I talk about the past. Things I used to think about when I was lying on my back for so long.

Let's call this blog - Depression 101. I say this because for most of my career as a fashion photographer I would schlepp my portfolio around to different art directors for work. The hotels I stayed in ranged from premier to rock bottom. I remember one night I was in Germany, I stayed in a real low budget hotel. It was stark. It was like a freaking prison cell. And to top it all off, there was a vending machine that dispensed ice cold beer. Man, those Germans drink a lot of beer. I didn't sleep all night. You know, talking about Germany, one night I went out for dinner. The restaurant I went to was packed. The Maitre'd said, "Oh, you're alone. One person. Come this way please." He sat me down at the world's smallest table. Then, all of a sudden, as I'm going through my menu, a very attractive woman sits down across from me. She starts going through the menu. It was all very awkward. I was like, two feet from her. I didn't know what to say. I thought I was being picked up by a cougar. Well, apparently, in Germany, if there's a single seat available, they fill it. I didn't know this. Going back to when she sat down, I didn't know what to do. I asked her if she wanted a drink and started talking to her. She totally ignored me and pulled out a book. Like I said, it was all very awkward.

One time I was in Hawaii on a job. I was checking into my hotel. It was an amazing and beautiful hotel. As I came in with my luggage a big whale in the background came out of the water. It was like a TV commercial. You couldn't have timed it better. That was cool. Great Hotel.

Depression 101 was basically about the low budget hotels I stayed in. Reflecting about it, I don't think I'm even gonna go there. Like my friend here said, I'll just choose to remember the good hotels.

That's it for this week. This is B. Nice signing off. Oh yeah! Here's the link to the trailer for the movie I did. Remember, I did a movie to call attention to brain injury. There's gonna be a lot of people coming back from the wars and a lot of people using the phone while driving, that have brain injury. Watch and see the trailer. https://vimeo.com/134879643
