I’ll have the Gator
Actual conversation in Louisiana, somewhere on the bayou. I’ve been thinking about it ever since and suspect- just maybe – the human brain doesn’t do well on the toxic combination of gator, frogs and deep-fry. I do love it here, and the people are great, but this one was too funny not to pass along.
Me: I’m not from around here, what’s in the gator basket?
Me: Uh huh. And is there anything else in the gator basket?
She: I guess you can have fries or onion rings or baked potato.
Me: Onion rings please. Do you have beer?
Me: What kind of beer do you have?
She: You know. The usual.
Yet another long silence as I plumb the depths of this woman’s intellect realizing I’ve already seen the bottom far too quickly.
Me: And what might the usual be in these here parts?
She: Oh you know, Bud Light, Coors Light, Miller Li…oh, wait, we’re out of Miller Light.
Me: And do you have anything without the LIGHT in it?
She: Oh, you mean like Bud WISER instead?
Me: Yes. Yes, I do. I will have (in the absence of any real beer) a Bud WISER please.

The Nikon Post
I am approaching this post with trepidation knowing what kind of strange misplaced fury these issues bring up in some people. If only some people put as much energy into their creative lives, eh? But you are not those people, so that’s why I’m not keeping this to myself. You folks are friends and deserve [...]
Postcard from Kho Samed
Last night up to my neck in the warm waters off Kho Samed. Hello from the small island of Kho Samed. I came here last year for a couple days at the end of a 2 week shoot in northern Thailand, and knew I had to come back. So when I had a week to [...]
