PiercingKen Goes To American International Toy Fair 2017

I’m happy to report that this entertainment outlet of mine was once again attending the American International Toy Fair at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC. It’s our seventh year of attendance and the plan is to offer up sights and scenes on both the and websites.

As you read this I am recharging the mental and physical self along with all of the technological implements that were brought along on the adventure. There is much more to document and photograph over the coming three days and when the postings begin to run there are going to be a lot of them. Interested readers don’t have to wait until that time though and can get a sneak peak into the observations by clicking over onto our Official Instagram link HERE. Be sure to give a follow and check back often to see the latest stuff. See you soon.

Presenting A Brand New “Look” For Your Blog MC

I don’t always make a personal appearance here in The Chronicles of Piercing Ken and am quite content with letting my words paint the necessary pictures you need for the best enjoyment but there have been some developments recently that I wanted to share with you and the new photo below pretty much lines them out.

Yeah, it seems that its time for me to get a pair of glasses since a recent examination has discovered that I am now on the nearsighted side of the fence. Being nearsighted means that I have some difficulty seeing things that are farther away while items that are up close are in a better focus. Farsighted is the opposite of this in case you were curious. Gone are the days of 20/20 vision and a laser clear focus on anything that I looked at. I guess I cannot complain about only starting to need them now after all of the years I spent glaring at a computer screen. I do like the frames that I selected and while I didn’t think of this at the moment I should have gotten the ones that get darker when out in the sunlight. I got some glare protection on them since I felt this would help with watching shows from the back of venues. It’s all very new to me and I must admit that I am having a little bit of a confusion about them and needing them on a regular basis. I must admit that they do make me see the farther away items with some nice clarity so I guess I cannot complain.

My friends and followers have all chimed in with positive notes on the new “look” so let’s “see” how this progresses LOL, sorry I could not resist a bad pun since that is how I roll. I thank them all for the words since this is so new to me as an experience. It will take some getting used to. Maybe sometime soon I will be able to get contacts that have little skulls on them to reinforce the Metal guy aesthetic. Alright, that is all for now. I’ll be back with the usual stuff soon. Thanks for reading and if you haven’t gotten your own eyes checked out in a while you should do it. The office said you should try and do this at least once a year as you get older. They have some cool machinery to test you out now and that stuff fascinated me.

Sharing My Swarm 2016 Year In Review

It’s without question that I consider myself a very active Social Networker and while I have the expected Facebook profile, I am using things like Yelp, Foodspotting, Foursquare and Swarm much more when it comes to my visits to clubs, restaurants and bars. Each of these networks offers me the ability to share over to Facebook but to be brutally honest I don’t always feel like doing that. Swarm is connected to Foursquare and is the “check in” app that they created. Essentially you arrive at a place and find it on Swarm and log it in. Each check in earns you phony coins and shows you a “leader board” against those in your friends list. I get a kick out of it and recently was sent an email denoting my 2016 highlights. I downloaded the images and figured I would speak about some of them in a site post. Here we go.

Swarm calculated that I checked in some “622” times but the actual number is much higher since I didn’t always remember to do it. It happens.

I’m almost embarrassed by it disclosing that I like going to bars. It’s true that they are often the pre-concert pit stop to meet friends and to eat but in my defense I didn’t always have a drink of alcohol. I’m a lightweight and last year I did quick a few months without anything of the sort in my system, but that is a topic for another post – maybe 🙂

Happy Friday The 13th My Fiends

I’ve never viewed the day as one of bad luck or that a Black Cat crossing your path will find you in some sort of distress if it happens. As a matter of fact, this black cat below crosses my path a few dozen times a day. Have an excellent “Friday The 13th” from Spooke and I.


Presenting PiercingKen’s “Best 9” Instagram Photos For 2016

Hello my fellow photo hounds and those who just like looking at images around the web on the social networks.  The other day I discovered what the “Best 9” photos were for the Instagram for my site and as some of our readers might already know, this profile has been in play for a few months longer than the “METAL” one but is more broad in its presentation. The overall tally of the Official PiercingKen Instagram at the time of my posting this narrative is that it has 966 photos uploaded and a profile that is followed by 501 users. According to the “Best 9” website this account has had 3,374 likes on 206 photos. I think that’s pretty cool and am glad that I make some people smile with the profile. I hope to use it a lot more in 2017 based on what I see around me. Now, thanks to the fun website link which you will find at the end of this narrative, I was able to learn what my “9” most popular posted images were in 2016 and I wanted to share that with you below. Here is the graphic of those nine images.
