“The Chronicles” Are Off To New York Comic Con 2019

Hey there my friends, I am taking a moment to let you know that “The Chronicles Of Piercing Ken” Lifestyle website is heading to the annual New York Comic Con for the next four days and as always I am very excited about the people and the visuals that I will encounter at this massive media event which will be taking place at the Javits Center as usual. I’ve been doing some advance announcements over on the PiercingMetal website which you should peruse by clicking HERE because there are some cool things to be aware of if you are planning on attending or just in general as new information about some Pop Culture properties. Technically speaking, its the PiercingMetal website that has the press badge and this outlet comes along for the ride 🙂

As usual, the means to leave comments on this announcement have been disabled since this is only an alert. You should definitely make sure that you are following the PiercingMetal website on its social networks of Facebook, Instagram and Twitter since I plan on putting all of them to use. For those readers going to the Con, I will link to my handy dandy “Guidelines For A Seamless NYCC” that I wrote last year. I wanted to do an update for this year but the time just wasn’t there. This list is good for Comic Con and pretty much any other heavy duty convention.

Hope to see many familiar faces at this years convention. See you next time.

2019 Emmy Awards Full Winners List

It was only about an hour or so ago that the 71st Annual Emmy Awards were given out and while I had wanted to do more of a live tweet and updating to be different, I forgot that I had the Stone Temple Pilots concert to cover in Coney Island for my PiercingMetal website. Once it was over I bolted home to cobble together a plain old conventional website post with the rundown of the winners. It will have to do so let’s take a look at who brought home the trophies. The show had no “official” host and had a side commentary by comedian Thomas Lennon and I was split 50/50 on this. I found some of the snarky comments made me laugh but also many left me saying “this isn’t working”. Here now are the winners.

The Press Release:

In that vein, the BookExpo team has been in a phase of exploration to determine the right ingredients to deliver the perfect sauce.
