Just when you thought it was safe to go careening down a hill in a souped up shopping cart, the guys in “Jackass” are back with their fourth film called “Jackass Forever” and comes care of Paramount Pictures. The popular prank and feats of extreme stupidity will be opening soon and now you have a trailer to see what you are in store for. Its without question that I say “please do NOT try any of this at home”. Enjoy the clip.

The Premise:
The entire cast from the previous movies returned for the fourth movie, with the exception of Ryan Dunn, who died on June 20, 2011 and Bam Margera who was fired from the production in February 2021. It will be the first film in the series not to feature a guest appearance by Rip Taylor, due to his death in October 2019. (c/o Wiki).

The Press Release:
After careful consideration, the NY Luxury Design Fair has decided to make the very difficult decision to postpone the inaugural event to September 8-11, 2022, due to ongoing complications related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The fair has found great enthusiasm and support from prestigious media partners, A&D trade organizations, and many leading manufacturers, and expected robust ticket sales from trade professionals and consumers eager to attend. Unfortunately, many confirmed and prospective exhibitors, local and abroad, have communicated continued challenges including unpredictable future health concerns, managing product backlogs, current workforce shortages and travel bans, limiting corporate policies, and delayed shipping timelines.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: For starters I must apoligize for being a little late to the table with this news but I was not aware of the developments until very recently. That being said this news makes me sad because I really enjoyed the NY Times Travel Show and was looking forward to exploring it once again when 2022 rolled around. This event along with the BroadwayCon and the Boat Show were all January happenings that began my convention adventures for the year and prepared me for being busy by being a very hefty schedule. I hope something gets created to fill the void and that we can explore whatever that is because there were some awesome people involved and we enjoyed seeing them during our visit. Those who’ve attended the event are welcome to chime into this one with their thoughts about it ending. I wonder how many times you ended up going. I did three years of this and was at newbie status because of that and now we say farewell.
