From The Facebook:
To the Jing Fong family, friends, and loyal fans from all around the world:
First and foremost, THANK YOU everyone for the endless support this past year, it truly means a lot to us and we really appreciate each and every one of you all, from the bottom of our hearts. We are heartbroken to announce that our Chinatown location at 20 Elizabeth Street, will be permanently closing its indoor dining operation on March 7, 2021 at 8:00pm. We will continue to operate from the 2nd floor kitchen for our outside patio, take-out, and delivery until further notice.

The Press Release:
To our queer geek community, 2021 has finally arrived, and with it we begin a new year of planning for this year’s Flame Con! 2020 presented us with several hard decisions and new challenges, especially around how best to keep everyone safe and provide as much of a Flame Con experience as possible. Several decisions were entirely out of our hands. 2021 is presenting us with very similar challenges.
COVID-19 continues to be the primary factor in our ability to hold an in person event safely. We are still in contract with the Sheraton Times Square, but are largely at the mercy of the venue’s priorities, the laws governing the city of New York and, of course, the pace of vaccine distribution across the country. Like many conventions, we currently have two imperfect options to choose from. If we preemptively cancel the event, before state & local authorities have expressly forbidden large gatherings, we forfeit our deposit with the venue. If we wait for authorities to make a decision on events like ours, we likely won’t know if an in-person Flame Con is possible until just before this August. As a non-profit with a modest budget, forfeiting the deposit to the venue would risk our ability to come back for another year. So, unfortunately, we must wait.
With the majority of the world still dealing with being under quarantine as the dreaded Coronavirus Pandemic continues to rule with its terrible fist, I’m continuing to showcase any of the awards show rundowns that I learn have happened. This past year of 2020 found me introducing ones that I’ve never heard about before but would gladly add to the context of our historical archive. The AVN Awards have never been documented here before and since a big story last year was that the Pornhub service was giving away free memberships to those of age in order to keep people home. For sure it was a clever means to build up memberships and advise people to interact outside a lot less. This is found me opting to include the recently announced winners for “The Oscars of Adult Film” and I hope that those of you who follow the industry enjoy this winners list inclusion. Let’s go.

The Press Release:
As COVID-19 remains insufficiently resolved, The Toy Association has announced that it will not conduct an interim trade show in New York for 2021, which was previously planned to take place May 1 to 4. Plans for Toy Fair Dallas remain on course for October 2021 and providing an ongoing mix of physical and digital business opportunities for the industry will be the Association’s focus this year.
“Our foremost consideration is the health and well-being of the global toy and play community and setting a clear path forward,” said Steve Pasierb, president & CEO of The Toy Association. “We want to provide our exhibitors, retail buyers, and the larger toy and play community with certainty on important destination shows and the ability to take advantage of immediate opportunities through our year-round buying and selling platform.” Continue reading The Toy Association Cancels Interim Toy Fair and Looks To 2022 Trade Show→
Hello my dear readers and “Welcome” to 2021. Let me be among the first to wish you a very “Happy New Year”. We hope that it will be one that is loaded with good health (especially under the current circumstances), special memories and prosperity. We kept it simple and dry here at the Creative Command HQ this time around and got straight to mapping out some of the things that we hope to accomplish as the New Year gets into gear.
Though 2020 was a terrible year in terms of “things” that could be done, we are glad to report that we made it through unscathed while many others were not so fortunate. We also chose to use the relative isolation of the last several months to keep creative and share as many ideas and notions as was possible to do with the resources we have around us. “The Chronicles” uploaded more than 225 posts last year and in addition to our popular Facebook and Instagram accounts we launched a long overdue YouTube Channel for this website. We also found the time to create a brand new focus we call Ken Pierce Media. Clicking any of the highlighted text will bring you to the networks and we would appreciate your follows, likes and subscriptions so we know you are out there receiving this stuff. There is strength in numbers I always say and with so many other creative people out there we want our Legions on point where it counts the most.
It’s my hope that this New Year becomes one of promise for you all. Thank you for your kind attention to our works, we shall surely keep the engine running for you when you need some distraction.
Ken Pierce, Founder of “The Chronicles Of Piercing Ken”
