On Wednesday 11th August at 12.30 pm banned company director Steve Crow and Miss Erotica 2010 will be heading a parade of scorpion tanks, motorcycles with bare-breasted pillions and vehicles down Queen Street Auckland – in order to promote Crow’s failing hardcore pornography empire. Eden Digital Ltd directed by John Malcolm Carr, a San Antonio Texas based CPA, is the business entity linked to the parade of tawdry titillation that promotes a forthcoming three day event – Erotica Lifestyles Expo – featuring a collection of imported US-based porn stars, sex toys and lewd acts. On Thursday 12th August at 12.30 pm the same boringly predictable parade will head through Hamilton city streets.
Steve Crow is intending to hand out $250,000 worth of free vouchers to those attending the porn parades, so they can purchase hard core pornography DVDs marketed by his failing business Vixen Direct. [Read more...]

Media insiders are suggesting that the megalomaniacal managerial mantle of “Porn King” of New Zealand may now have migrated from Steve Crow to John Malcolm Carr CPA. Why?
Answer: Shirish Daddaram Vagal of Bucklands Beach Auckland has just resigned as director of porn ‘mother company’ CVC Group Ltd. The resignation was registered on the Companies Office website by Steve Crow on 19 May and made effective from 14 May 2010. Steve Crow who resigned as director on 15 May 2010 was served a banning order on Friday night 14 May, preventing him holding a company directorship for four years in Australia and/or New Zealand, issued by the Ministry of Economic Development. These two resignations leave John Malcolm Carr – in the proverbial sense – ‘holding the [porn] baby’ – as he is now the sole director of porn ‘mother company’ CVC Group Ltd and the sole director of hardcore porn company Eden Digital Ltd. (Mr Shirish Vagal and his wife Gulshan Shirish Vagal still own 180,000 shares in CVC Group Ltd).
Stephen (Steve) Peter Crow appointed his brother David Bruce Crow of Inglewood and his sister Leanne Marie Osborn of Fitzroy, New Plymouth, as directors of HWGA Company Ltd – effective 15 May 2010. HWGA Co. Ltd currently owns 705,000 shares (40.38%) in CVC Group Ltd – a porn ‘mother company’ from which Steve Crow resigned as director effective 15 May 2010. Leanne Marie Osborn, who with her husband Larry Charles Osborn, owns 3,000 CVC Group Ltd shares, will now be serving the role of co-director of HWGA Co. Ltd along side her brothers Steve and David – an all the family affair in would appear – helping the shrinking porn industry. (Four porn companies owned by CVC Group Ltd and directed by Steve Crow have recently been placed in liquidation owing unsecured creditors and the IRD hundreds of thousands of dollars).
The major shareholder of porn ‘mother company’ CVC Group Ltd, from which Steve Crow has just resigned as director, is HWGA Co. Ltd which owns 40% of the CVC Group shares. Steve Crow who for the last ten months has been sole director of HWGA Co. Ltd and still remains its director, has today registered with the Companies Office, the appointment of CVC Group shareholder Leanne Marie Osborn. his sister and David Bruce Crow his bother, as two additional directors – effective from 15 May 2010. The Society lodged formal complaints with the Companies Office last year over the attempted appointment of David Crow as a director of HWGA Co. Ltd by Steve Crow and this led to the appointment (lodged as pending on the website) being withdrawn. [Read more...]
