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.
The topic of the annual Halftime Show during The Big Game is always a hot bit of discussion and late yesterday, the NFL revealed that the 2020 spectacle will find both Shakira and Jennifer Lopez joining forces. Take a look at the statement that I snared from Official NFL provisions.
The Press Statement:
Let’s get LIV! Pepsi, the NFL and Roc Nation has announced artists Jennifer Lopez and Shakira will perform for the Pepsi Super Bowl LIV halftime show on February 2, 2020 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla.
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.
Outstanding Drama Series:
Better Call Saul
Bodyguard WINNER: Game of Thrones
This Is Us
Every now and again we need to be “newsy” here at “The Chronicles” of Piercing Ken and as a regular attendee of the Book Expo and The Book Con, I just knew that I had to share the recently received broadcast that pertains to the Expo side of the fence. Read on.
The Press Release:
Dear Valued Customer,
It is no secret that our industry has experienced radical change over the last 20, 30, 40 years. This surely can also be said about BookExpo, as tradeshows reflect the evolution, fluctuations and business trends of the industry they serve.
As our world changes, so must our way of gathering to learn, share ideas and connect buyers and sellers. In that vein, the BookExpo team has been in a phase of exploration to determine the right ingredients to deliver the perfect sauce. Forgive the culinary analogy, my sports lingo is crude at best unless we’re talking about women’s soccer.
We want to sincerely thank our customers and partners for all of their support and feedback while we continue the journey to shape the event together. As organizers, we deeply value these close relationships and partnerships; they are critical as we test formats, concepts and strategies. We know that not everything will work the way we hope. We know that each segment of the industry has unique needs that sometimes clash. Ultimately, with your commitment and open, engaged feedback we believe we will land on the right environment and format for you to accomplish your business goals.
