Dear Google…

Annoying Youtube

Dear Google, I have been happily using YouTube under the nickname/web-handle/pseudonym “Kobestarr” since I joined the streaming service in 2005. I chose not to use my real name for many reasons including wanting a modicum of anonymity and feeling that “Kobestarr” was a pithier, catchier and more distinctive way to represent myself online on Continue Reading

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Amazingly its the Amazing Spiderman 2 Official Trailer! Wow - Sony's Marvel Hero seems to be in quick turnaround and sees Dean DeHaan from my favourite film of 2012 "Chronicle" step up for some banter with Andrew Garfield's friendly neighbourhood Spiderman.

Lenny Kravitz

Lenny Kravitz

It was such a pleasure to take pictures at this Lenny Kravitz concert. This was my first from the photo in the scrum with the other photographers with a limited 3 song time period in which to take all of the pictures that I needed. I didn't expect the adrenalin levels to get so high especially when things went wrong! Part of the problem was Continue Reading

Turbonegro

Turbonegro

The great thing about festivals is seeing and appreciating bands and artists that you wouldn't necessarily see if they toured alone. Turbonegro are one such band for me. They brought with them the most dedicated fans and had such a fantastic hold over the Turbonegro newbies that I'm certain they left Bergen with a few thousand more. Awesome fun and Continue Reading
