FOR A LITTLE HISTORY ABOUT MY MUSICAL SELF I BEGAN PLAYING THE GUITAR AT ABOUT AGE 13 AND LEARNED TO PLAY THE SONGS OF WELL KNOWN RECORDING ARTISTS LIKE THE BEATLES THE ROLLING STONES THE BEACH BOYS ON MY OWN AND WITH THE HELP OF MUSIC BOOKS AND OTHER LOCAL GUITARISTS.
IN THE LATE 1960'S I SELF TAUGHT MYSELF HOW TO PLAY LEAD AND RHYTHM GUITAR WITH THE HELP OF OTHER NEIGHBORHOOD GUITARISTS
WHERE I USED TO LIVE IN QUEENS NEW YORK.
ONE AMAZING GUITARIST THAT I MET EARLY ON WAS JOHN HEFFERNAN.
HIS DREAM WAS TO BECOME A FIREMAN AND UNFORTUNATELY FOR THE MUSIC WORLD HIS FAMILY AND MANY OTHERS HE PERISHED AT THE WORLD TRADE CENTER ON 9/11.
EVENTUALLY IN THE MID 1970'S AND INTO THE 1980'S I DEVELOPED MY STYLE LEARNING HOW TO PLAY THE BASS AND DRUMS, BEGAN WRITING MY OWN LYRICS AND PUTTING MUSIC TO THEM AND EVENTUALLY RECORDING AND MIXING SOUND EFFECTS LIKE DELAYS AND REVERBS TO VOCALS AND MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS.
FOR A LITTLE BACKGROUND ON MY PHOTOGRAPHIC EXPERIENCE STUDIES.
I BEGAN TAKING PHOTOS EARLY ON IN LIFE AROUND AGE 15.
IT WAS A TIME IN HISTORY WHERE FILM HAD TO BE DEVELOPED FROM A NEGATIVE INTO A PRINT.
BEFORE THE NEW AGE OF DIGITALTECHNOLOGY I READ BOOKS ON THE SUBJECT AND EXPERIMENTED WITH LIGHTING AND CAMERA SETTINGS EXTENSIVELY. AS TIME MOVED ON AND TECHNOLOGY CHANGED I EVENTUALLY SWITCHED OVER TO DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY USING A MEMORY CARD TO CAPTURE THE IMAGES. THEN I BEGAN LEARNING VIDEO TECHNOLOGY IN THE LATE 1980'S. BACK THEN IT WAS RARE TO SEE TEENAGERS DOING PHOTOGRAPHY OR VIDEO RECORDING BUT THE ART OF PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEOGRAPHY HAS EXPANDED EXPONENTIALLY OVER THE YEARS AND IT SEEMS THAT JUST ABOUT ANYBODY HAS LEARNED HOW TO TAKE A PHOTOGRAPH OR CAPTURE A VIDEO.
SOME BACKGROUND ABOUT WORK. ALTHOUGH I BEGAN LEARNING PHOTOGRAPHY BEFORE VIDEO I THINK THAT MY FIRST PROFESSIONAL TYPE OF EXPERIENCE WAS WITH SHOOTING VIDEO AT IT BEGAN AT THE MERCEDES-BENZ FASHION WEEK NEW YORK IN 2003 AT BRYANT PARK. I SHOT FOR RICHARD RENDA WITH HIS AFFILIATION CALLED TOTALLY COOL. BACK THEN WE USED HI 8 TAPE OR STANDARD MINI DV TAPES BEFORE HIGH DEFINITION TECHNOLOGY BEGAN. EVENTUALLY I WENT ON MY OWN WITH MY OWN SMALL COMPANY AFFILIATION CALLED STARDUSTER1 MULTIMEDIA NETWORK PRODUCTIONS LLC. OR STARDUSTER1 MULTIMEDIA FOR SHORT. MERCEDES-BENZ FASHION WEEK NEW YORK MOVED FROM BRYANT PARK TO LINCOLN CENTER A FEW YEARS AGO.
LAST TIME I CHECKED RECORDING IN HIGH DEFINITION USING MEMORY CARDS OR BUILT IN INTERNAL MEMORY STORAGE THAT IS DESIGNED INSIDE THE VIDEO CAMERA PROGRAM MENU WAS THE CURRENT WAY TO GO. FOR A TOTAL OF 9 YEARS I SHOT VIDEO BUT AFTER A FEW SEASONS
I ADDED DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY TO MY COVERAGE OF MERCEDES-BENZ FASHION WEEK/OLYMPUS FASHION WEEK IN NEW YORK. AS STARDUSTER1
I HAD THREE VARIOUS TIME SLOTS A MONTH AT MANHATTAN NEIGHBORHOOD NETWORK (MNN) PART OF TIME WARNER, BROADCASTING INTERVIEWS OF DESIGNERS AND RUNWAY FASHION SHOWS FROM ABOUT 2004 TO 2009 BUT NOT ON A CONTINUAL BASIS. LIVING IN FLORIDA NOW IN ALL THOSE YEARS I MISSED ONLY ONE NEW YORK FASHION WEEK EVENT DUE TO EXTREMELY BAD FEBRUARY WEATHER IN 2014. EVENTUALLY INTO MY 10TH YEAR SEPTEMBER 2014 I WENT WITH PHOTOGRAPHY COVERAGE BECAUSE THERE IS TOO MUCH ELECTRONIC GEAR TO HANDLE AND CARRY AND MANAGE COMING FROM FLORIDA TO NEW YORK WITH THE AIRLINES THERE'S ONLY SO MUCH I CAN CARRY. IF I STILL LIVED IN NEW YORK I PROBABLY WOULD HAVE COVERED THE FASHION WEEK EVENTS IN BOTH VIDEO AND PHOTO AND WOULD HAVE STILL BEEN BROADCASTING ON TIME WARNER MANHATTAN CABLE. MOVING TO FLORIDA MADE THINGS MORE DIFFICULT FOR COVERAGE OF THE MERCEDES-BENZ FASHION WEEK NEW YORK EVENTS BECAUSE I LIKE IT OUT HERE IN FLORIDA.
On June 7, 2010 I completed my 14th CD entitled Let Us Not. Lyrics are in the bottom of the Home music and lyrics gallery. It will be available on CD Baby and for digital download probably in July of 2010.
My most recent CD #15 is entitled The Quest For Vogue
and it has been released in parts in pre 2012 copyright compilation music CD's with some pre existing works, and with a completed work awaiting on finalization from the Library of Congress of a separate copyright filing of my song Ready Or Not in which I built the song around the lead guitar playing of Peter Dunckley for which I credit in the separate copyright filing for one of my 9 songs on my 15th music CD.
I am currently working on my own on CD #16 which I am expecting to be completed sometime in 2013. A possible title for the album is Fashion Night Out which also happens to be my latest pre-release song title for CD #16.
May 7, 2013 Updated music album news;
My newest CD #16 is entitled Fashion Night Out
and was completed very early this year.
As with all of my music 16 CD's/albums that are now available, they can be download as a single or whole album from CD Baby, itunes or through CD Baby's other digital distribution networks, for a small fee. CD Baby may still have a few actual CD's left for sale but I think that only digital distribution is avaliable now.
I am currently working on my 17th music CD album and as of today there is a lot of music and lyrical content for it, but no title for these newest works as yet.
I am hoping to give it a name and complete this
new album by August 2013.
If I don't have it finished by then, some pre-release
album songs from the album may very well likely be available for complimentary distribution and the album would then be completed in early 2014.
The last Fashionweek 2010 broadcast aired Jsong Way Betsey Johnson the Heart Truth Collection and Jill Stuart in April and May of 2010
ON FEBRUARY 11, 2010, ALEXANDER MCQUEEN HAS LEFT US. THE WORLD OF FASHION HAS LOST AN AMAZINGLY CREATIVE ICON. MY THOUGHTS GO OUT TO HIS FRIENDS AND FAMILY AND ALL THAT HAVE LOVED AND ADMIRED HIS WORKS. I PRAY THAT HE IS IN HEAVEN'S SPACE.

On June 25, 2009 Michael Jackson passed away. It was alleged by the Los Angeles county coroners office that he died of a heart attack. He will be so missed (1958-2009) Back in the mid 1980's to the present he was the pop music undisputed genius singer/songwriter performer, and a one of a kind king of pop music video, as seen through many of his dance music videos. After a number of years out of the spotlight he was poised to make a comeback in July 2009 and to sing and dance in 50 shows in London to about seven hundred and fifty thousand (750,000) fans.
