RIP Betty Page

I was very sad when I heard that the Queen of Pin-up passed away 😦 Arguably Betty Page laid the foundation of the sexual era in America.

She was one of the reasons why I got interested in pin-up style pictures. When thinking about Baseball Beauties, Betty was always in the back of my mind. She died at the ripe age of 85, she had a FULL and VERY EXCITING life and it will be remembered! She was one of the first Playboy centerfolds and a good friend of Hugh Hefner. He said: “Betty Page was one of Playboy Magazine’s early playmates and she became an iconic figure, influencing notions of beauty and fashion. Her passing is very sad.” Rest In Peace Betty! Her legend will never die, and I think that it’s awesome to be remembered as someone who was such a HUGE part of the American sexual era. Did I mention that Betty LOVED shoes?

Yes, she had a shoes fetish 🙂 don’t all women have that??? Oh wait, it’s probably just Betty, SJP and I… LOL I’m sad because I didn’t get a chance to meet her and listen to all the stories she had to tell. Ones Baseball Beauties is up and running we will do a Betty Page tribute in 2009.

I have been mentioning that Amy and I are going to start recording our weekly Baseball Beauties Viriety Show. And yesterday we finally went into details and figured out out how to start our first show. Its always the most difficult to start something, no matter what it is (a paper or an exercise program) but once you get into it, things flow smoothly after you get over that initial HUMP. We are going to record our first show this coming week. The show is going to be only 2 minutes in length (because MOST people won’t watch anything longer than 2 minutes!) and in our first segment we’re going to introduce ourselves and talk a little bit about the show and what it’s going to be about. Sounds SIMPLE right? Not really, because it’s going to take sometime to figure out what exactly we’re going to say in those 2 minutes, which is barely any time at all!!! Ahhhhhhhhh! Maybe we’ll increase it to 5 minutes and those of you who REALLY want to see it will watch our show till the end and the rest of you lazy people who can’t get through more than 2 minutes of film shouldn’t be watching it anyways! There….

Eventually, we’re going to have local guests and friends and Beauties themselves come on our show, we will primarily talk about baseball and what’s going on with Baseball Beauties in general (highlights from this BLOG) Once our cartoon artist is finished with an int-ro and out-ro for out show it will be up 🙂

I even bout a Flip MinoHD Camcorder to use for taping and just taking it with us when we go to different events.

Its going to be great to be able to get HD footage on such a tiny device. Although it only holds 60 minutes of footage on it’s hard drive that should be plenty for clips and memos. Look for more videos in my BLOG soon 🙂

This week I finally joined Webgrrls, I payed their $150 yearly fee and got a membership card. I’m looking forward to going to all of their Networking events! Nelly, who runs their NYC chapter is such a sweet person, she posted some pictures up on Facebook and tagged me in some of them. I also thought that it was cool that they chose to use my quote on their even page on top: http://www.webgrrls.com/sanfrancisco-ca/articles/2008-12-03_287.php

It says that I’m the “Founder” of Baseball Beauties, which I thought was kinda cool  🙂 I am indeed the founder, seeing it in print sort of puts a stamp on it and makes it OFFICIAL.

This week I also attended the FIDM Alumni event with Elena. That was fun! I met a real nice lady named Hanzel, who does social networking consulting and is also a big part of http://www.ladieswholaunch.com/ This is a great website for women with businesses. So I am going to look into it further this coming week.

FIDM Networking EventFIDM Alumni did a great job putting this event together. They served all ORGANIC food (which was Yummy) donated 2$ from every drink to charity and had a Christmas tree which was going to charity too. It was a pleasant evening and it was nice to spend some time with my friends. Lets see what this next week brings to the Baseball Beauties table!
