Happy Earth Day 2014 World

Today is Earth Day and while not a holiday of any real kind, its surely important to try to pay a little more mind to the way we treat this place upon which we walk and go about our daily routines.

Some readers might recall that I love to share photos of my immediate area and one spot in particular is where some spectacular views of the Verrazano Bridge can be viewed. Depending on the time and the temperature it can be quite an awesome experience. Well, the other day I decided to keep walking the bike path to pass the bridge because I felt that some of the visuals I would get would be perfect for Earth Day in a sense.

Playing “Master Chef” On Easter Sunday 2014

I periodically like to share my cooking adventures and experiments here on the Piercing Ken blog and since this Easter was going to find me all by myself with no real plans to visit anyone, I would be left to my own devices in the kitchen. Oh don’t feel bad about that disclosure because I had two back to back killer Metal concerts to cover for PiercingMetal.com on Friday and Saturday so I was looking forward to the quiet time and seeing what I could find in the apartment to cook up. When I realize that I had one of those frozen turkey loafs in my freezer, it was time to use it.

My Last Visit To Roseland Ballroom (4/9/2014)

The venue had officially closed only two evenings prior to these shots being taken and since I had to be in the city to see some newly made friends, I decided to take a slight detour to go pay a visit to The Roseland Ballroom one more time. I was hoping for some kind of phrase on the marquee like “Thanks NYC” or “Goodbye” but as you can see by these images this was not to be found. That was sad.

A KISS Themed “Throwback Thursday” For All :)

It’s Thursday and according to the way that the world of Social Networking Legions engage their friends, fans and other populace – it that means we need to put up some kind of image that refers to our past or youthful times. A “throwback” to yesteryear so to speak. Ordinarily I have been fine with posting a scanned older photo on my personal Facebook page and perhaps a musically themed one on my Official PiercingMetal Facebook but since we are also celebrating the fact that KISS gets inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame later tonight I wanted to do something a little different and post it as a blog as well instead of limiting it to Facebook. So what do I mean? Well, the photo below is the box for the “KISS Your Face Makeup Kit” by Remco. It was released in 1978 and allowed you the means to do yourself up as any one of the masked foursome. Remember this was also at a time of complete band mystery and only a choice few knew what the band looked like without their signature makeup.

Hitting The 2nd Annual NYC Hot Sauce Expo (3/30/2014)

The other day I attended the 2nd Annual NYC Hot Sauce Expo that was being held at the Penn Plaza Pavilion and it was a spicy good time. Thanks to the invite by High River Sauces, I was able to peruse the offerings and bring you the best scoop possible. I would be joined by my friend Skeleton Pete and while it might have been nice to run some photos here, the full on coverage is on my PiercingMetal Blog since there are some Metal celebrity involved.

To Quickly Cook A Quality Culinary Concoction

I’m pretty sure that I had made something similar to this and shared it here with you on the blog but since this was slightly different I decided to share it just the same. I’ve no real name for the dish so if you come up with something that works I might just give you a toast and shout out.
