Back at it!

This is the first post quite a while... This is the start of my new focus, blogging about my experience in local news here in New Orleans at WDSU. Stay tuned for BTS  photo and video.

Paper and Pencil

TECH // PRODUCTS I LOVE 

This is a love story about analog and digital making the perfect connection.  Pencil and the iPad app Paper have just been announced by FiftyThree

Pencil has the size, weight and feel of a traditional drafting pencil, complete with functional tip and eraser. It’s available with a black anodized aluminum body or a sustainably harvested milled Walnut. 

featuring a rechargeable battery connected to the tip that can be removed and plugged in to any USB port for a full top-off in 90 minutes (which should power for a full month of usage). There’s no power switch Pencil wakes when you start drawing and goes to sleep after a period of non use. And then there’s a mysteriously placed magnet that conveniently secured Pencil to an iPad Smart Cover

Pencil works just fine with any drawing application

Download Paper for free from iTunes and pre-order Pencil in Walnut for $60 or Graphite for $50. Purchasing Pencil also gets you free access to all of Paper’s in-app purchasable tools.

COIN CARD

TECH //

With so much cool tech out there very rarely does something come along that is simple and solves an issue we all have.  Thats why I cant wait to get my hands on "Coin" an electronic device that looks and works like a credit card but what it does is store the data from all your cards, allowing you to swipe and pay with any of them while only having to carry and use the one Coin Card. Simple and cool and I love the dare to dream. Just don't give them money until its a real product.

Drinks in the secret garden.

TRAVEL // MONTREAL //

SAINTE-ELISABETH -1412 RUE SAINTE ÉLISABETH

Tucked down a nondescript street off the downtown shopping district the building out front isn't something you'd write home about - while the secret garden out back is one of the best places in town to grab a pint.

The locals swear by this joint and early 5-8 on payday (Thursdays) is the time to go. The bar serves cocktails, and a selection of excellent craft beers.

Good times when the weather is nice.
