He’s back, and he brought a new movie with him! This one means a lot to me, because it is really highlighting a skill that I need right now since I was laid off “How to Land That Dream Job”. Like all of gough’s other movies, this is a fantastic documentary, really thought out and highly researched, that explores the best methods to land that job that you have always told your significant other and parents you were going to get, and this time let’s see them laugh themselves silly or disappointingly cry!

gough, the world’s first blind filmmaker, has just released a new movie that exposes the seedy underbelly of the life of personal trainers… although he may not want to expose too much, they are in really good shape!

Traveling is so much fun! Sometimes you are on your way out to see family, or sometimes you are going to an event or to see the sights… sometimes it’s just about seeing someplace new and you have no idea what it is you are expecting to see! When I travel, I know I do it with intent… to duck creditors.
