ReneeDavide handbags party

Saturday night, I loaded up the Line 6 PodXT and headed over to Dave & Natalie’s for the evening.





About Renée Davíde
(reh-nay dah-veed)

Renée Davíde handbags were born when a trio of creative entrepreneurs — brother and sister Dave and Renée LaTulippe and Renée’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, Renée Davíde 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 season’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 Renée Davíde line is painstakingly crafted to ensure the creation of luxurious handbags that will become staples in the rotation of your must-haves.

The Spirit of Vlogging

In the spirit of vlogging, I’ve decided to revisit my footage from Manhattan Plane Crash day.

First of all… I spent ~ two hours going to the crash site, checking it out and coming back. When I looked at the television, the apartments were still on fire. That’s ridiculous, considering I had just been on the scene, and there was nothing but a small amount of smoke coming out of the building. It was like that when I got there, so the fire had been out for AT LEAST an hour, and still, the television was showing four windows with fires a-blazin’. :/ I’m now convinced that the fire may have been out before I even left my house, considering the exact same footage continued to run all day.

Anyway… I figured I’d go “between the lines”, into what I consider out-takes from the plane crash video. They didn’t add anything to the “going to the crash site” story, so they ended up on the cutting room floor… however, if someone’s never been on a bus in Manhattan, NYC or walked down the street here, they might enjoy seeing it.

Of course, New York City isn’t always like this. 😀 This was a special event, so Police, Fire, EMS, etc were making sure they were in position to handle the situation.

And… no… I wasn’t looking through the viewfinder while I was walking/jogging from 78th (I thought they reported the crash on 77th) to 72nd. 🙂

Welcome to New York…..

Cory Lidle Plane Crash

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!

Reinventing Television

Last night, I checked out Reinventing Television, hosted by Jonny Goldstein, with special guest Bre Pettis.

==> Watch The Video! <== The show uses webcams and tele-conferencing to bring people together to discuss cutting-edge issues in video blogging. Air-time is Thursday nights @ 10pm EST. You don't need a webcam to be involved... just a broadband connection & browser to see the video and a telephone to call the toll-free conference number to listen in. I definitely learned a few things I didn't know and I'm looking forward to next week's show, featuring Geek Entertainment TV.
