Happy Father’s Day To All The Dads Out There

In the past I’ve culled together some images for Mothers’s Day to wish the Mom’s of the world who read this blog a very special day but it’s never been done for Father’s Day and since I don’t want to have protesting outside of the Creative Command HQ I decided to give some equal time. This is our very first blogging wish to the Father’s out there who read this blogsite and of course my own who I got on the phone early and is probably mapping out his next visit to the golf course.

fathers day, fathers day cards

There is a funny story about these images as they were of Pop-Up cards that were left behind by a vendor/exhibitor at the recent Book Expo convention that I attended. Instead of leaving them about for the interested passerby since they had fled the building once expo was over and it became the publicly accessed Book Con, they glued them with some kind of unrelenting bond to the display stand. I liked the look of them so much that I snapped the visual and share it with you all.

Presenting The McCarren Park “SummerScreen” 2017 Film Festival Lineup

So let’s catch up before getting into this new one. It was not too long ago that I posted about a host of free concerts for the early riser that would be happening over at the Central Park Summerstage as a part of the Good Morning America broadcast and I followed that with the also free movie screenings that will take place during a normal hour over at the beautiful Bryant Park just off of Times Square. Those posts are easily found on the website if you missed them so please give a look see because like I said “FREE”. Now it’s time to shift the focus over to my beloved Brooklyn for the film series that is happening over at McCarren Park which is in Williamsburg. I know the park well as I grew up in the region about a thousand years ago. They call their film series the “SummerScreen” and it features live music, deejays and food and drink vendors along with the free film. At the time of this narrative I have no idea about the performers or vendors and can only share the films and their dates of screening. Check out the films below and know that these events begin the run on July 5th until August 9th. You should check the times and restrictions via the individual entries that I will have on the calendar.

Dates & Featured Films:
July 5 – Mean Girls
July 12 – Office Space
July 19 – Donnie Darko

Scenes From The 150th Annual Memorial Day Parade (5/29/2017)

Today is Memorial Day and that means its time for the annual Bay Ridge, Brooklyn Memorial Day Parade. This year while a special one as it was the 150th of its kind, did not have the weather on its side and would be rather rainy throughout the course of the event. That was not going to stop me from snapping photographs for readers of the blog to enjoy and I will begin as usual with the video of The Rolling Thunder passing through. There didn’t seem like there was many of them today and I guess with other parades taking place that they had to split them up. Enjoy.

Now it was time to begin the marching and from here on its just going to be the photos to entertain you. With a lot of friends and family not living in the immediate area anymore, I feel this brings a little bit of home to where they live now. Enjoy.

Walgreen’s Introduces “Wonder Woman” Makeup Set

So the Warner Brothers film “Wonder Woman” opened up about two weeks ago and it’s been doing gangbusters in the theater which is very cool to see based on the three previous installments in the DC Extended Universe. I’ve discussed a lot about the film over on PiercingMetal.com but that is not why I am here today. Today I am here to let you know that while shopping for sundry items at my local Duane Reade, I passed a shelf with “Wonder Woman” makeup on it. This is a Walgreen’s exclusive product and they own the Duane Reade franchise in full. Take a look at this stuff if you have a little Wonder Woman in your world. I thought it was a cute idea and just had to share it with you.
