UPDATE! All hail President Michael Squee!!
I was dashing from the Olympia and back so unfortunately only got to see Joe Chester & Maria Doyle Kennedy live. Other acts included The Stunning, David Kitt & Si Schroeder.
My second time shooting celebrity chef Dylan McGrath and my first time meeting the charming Nick Munier. Very lovely guys but whenever I’m in the company of Chef’s I have to hold back my “neglected vegetarian” rant. I swear, if I’m offered one more mushroom risotto as a veggie option….ugh!
Anywho, here’s some pix of the Foodies taken in Nick’s restaurant (Pichet). And for nostalgia I’ve included a snap of my 2007 shoot with Dylan on top of a building down the docks. Notice how I still haven’t masted my craft in so many years.
in the Academy last week shaking her perfectly pert bum at a load of sober kids.
Celina is my Home Girl. My Amazonian Goddess. My Love Child and the corrector of my grammar. She’s also my colleague but that sounds very uninteresting.
She’s my style icon lady girl and she has just started Ireland’s top Fashion blog called The Morning Strut. I’m doing all the snaps in my shiny new studio. It’s easy work really as she towers over me, wears little to no clothes, and has perfect skin (It’s the little things in life).
Follow that shiz and you shall be thoroughly entertained by her veracious use of the English language and her unrivaled sense of style. You may even be treated to some stories of Rock Star proportions. When we rock it, we rock it well.
Me and The Morning Strutter:
The O2 in Dublin tonight saw a short little performance from a well known cock head, Mr Rose. I stayed for only 3 songs coz I have more sense than the 10,000 people who paid in to see such appalling tripe.
People like Axl Rose should not be allowed to perform. A waste of everybody’s flippin time, the complete pansy. Sad thing is, they were actually pretty rocking before it all kicked off!
Full report in Hot Press magazine and on http://www.Hotpress.com imminently!
