Tonight, I went to see “New York Legends of Hip-Hop” at the Victory Theater in Times Square. Looooooong-time friends Marjory and Kim Holmes (pictured) were featured dancers, along with Rock Steady Crew and other representatives of Hip Hop culture, essentially from the beginning of it all. 😀
Marj, Bill C., Kim Holmes
The show was great! 😀 Reminded me of ‘back in the day’, going clubbing all night, then hitting ‘Round The Clock or Midnight Express for breakfast before or while the sun was coming up. I’m sure it was even better for people that weren’t aware of or didn’t have access to the culture. Our seats were next to a tourist named Melanie. She was from Sweden or Denmark or The Netherlands, I can’t remember which. We took pictures on her camera, which wasn’t digital, so she’s planning to snail-mail me a copy whenever she develops the film!!! hahaha She enjoyed the show a lot, too.
I made sure I had my kicks, sweats & KR3TS shirt, in case I had to ‘get loose’. 😀 I had seen Kim recently, but hadn’t seen Marj in ages, so it was great to watch them perform and hang out with them after the show. This is the last weekend of the show, and all the remaining dates are sold out… as they should be, because “New York Legends of Hip-Hop” is well worth seeing… whether you lived through the evolution of Hip Hop in NYC in the streets and in the clubs or you didn’t, but you’re a fan of the style & energy of the culture.
Saturday night, I loaded up the Line 6 PodXT and headed over to Dave & Natalie’s for the evening.
About RenÃ©e DavÃde
RenÃ©e DavÃde handbags were born when a trio of creative entrepreneurs — brother and sister Dave and RenÃ©e LaTulippe and RenÃ©eâ€™s husband Vittorio — saw the need in the super-saturated handbag industry for a line of superbly constructed handbags that would combine timeless style and structure with a total representation of the modern woman.
The line has been described as feminine and whimsical, with soft lines and sharp accents, designed with an eye for unique details. Combining brilliantly bold shapes and timeless beauty, RenÃ©e DavÃde handbags offer ultimate wearability season after season. The line transcends and surpasses the current trend of floppy bo-ho bags, and instead offers highly structured handbags for a bit more grown-up playfulness.
Each season, the creative team begins the design process with an exploratory process to define what is equally lovely, fluid, functional, creative and fresh so that each bag is created to be completely exclusive, classic and gorgeous.
The seasonâ€™s designs are handcrafted by American artisans trained in the old-world Italian tradition of handbag construction. Using only the finest polished Italian leathers and European linens, the RenÃ©e DavÃde line is painstakingly crafted to ensure the creation of luxurious handbags that will become staples in the rotation of your must-haves.
So… The other day, I’m minding my business….. (Like I love to do)… and my sister calls me talking about “a small plane hit a building on the east side. I check out the TV, and there’s an apartment building with a few windows with fire coming out of them. I grabbed the camera and headed out.
I hopped on the bus, and unfortunately for me, I thought the reporter said 77th street & York. I got out on 78th & 2nd, and the fire trucks and police vehicles kept whizzing by. Turns out the crash was on 72nd street, so I had some jogging to do. I finally got down there, and the fire was pretty much contained. There’s still some smoke coming out of the apartment(s), but everything was pretty calm and the whole block was taped off. There was a helicopter floating around, which was apparently Channel 4 News.
After I got there, nothing really happened. I guess people were waiting to see IF something happened. I headed out as it started raining. The ‘funny’ thing is that when I got back home and turned on the TV…… the building was still on fire! :/ It was then that I realized that the news was running the same footage over and over and had been doing that the whole time. It’s completely possible that the fire was out before I even left my house.
Anyway… Here I go, ‘racing’ to the accident scene on public transportation!
