I live in The Netherlands. I work in IT as an application developer. I play amateur level volleyball. But on this personal blog I will unlikely be talking about work. Or volleyball.

I follow many talented singers and actresses / actors on the various social platforms. I love admiring their work, whether it is film, tv series or new album releases. I believe the current social media, for all its faults, allows us to do good: let them know their hard work and talent is appreciated. But only at their own choice, if they search on their name or look in their mentions. It also helps that casting directors can see how many fans their are.

I will not post paparazzi pictures. Or speculate about gossip or relationships. I believe celebrities should be left alone and be able to lead their own private lives.

In the entertainment industry people quite often start their careers when they are still under eighteen and they and their projects may also be featured here. In these cases you can rest assured that I will never contact them in any form, not even a simple @-mention on Twitter, nor their other fans. I expect people reading this blog to keep themselves to the same rule.

Photos I’ve made are CC-BY too, however if I don’t explicitly mention that I took the photo, it should be assumed the photo is from an external source, in which case the copyright is with that source. Many posts have been imported from my Tumblr blog, which indiscriminately imports reblogs as well; the copyright for those text is with the original authors.
