This past week in NYC was the 108th Annual Toy Fair and as with many events of its scope would be held over at the Jacob Javits Center on Manhattan’s West Side. You might recall that PiercingMetal.com was on point at this very location for the NY Comic Con back in the last 1/4 of 2010, and if not, we suggest you hit this LINK to enjoy all of our narratives about the event.
Toy Fair 2011 would be no less the daunting effort and while I am still coming to grips with my some of my own coverage, you can see the chapters that are currently online by clicking the Toy Fair logo above. I attended this incredible event with my comrade in arms Skeleton Pete who was a busy little bee as well. He even wrote up a few narratives that can be enjoyed over on his own website SkeletonPete.com – Click the image below to be taken to them. This was an amazing convention and an experience that I will never forget.

Please pardon the interruption to your regularly scheduled Internet browsing but I just wanted to share this observation with you since it struck me as kind of odd. The other day I was heading back from the PDN Photo Expo with my good buddy Skeleton Pete and as we headed to the event we noticed how the bar once known as Shutters was now for lack of a better word “shuttered”.
I had never been to the establishment but did find it fascinating at the wordplay. Alright that is all I have for you now. Carry on and thanks for listening.
Halloween is really one of my favorite times of the year and I think that all of the fun that one can have along with how much creativity people demonstrate in terms of their costumes is what makes me feel this way. Of course had I said this as a youth I would have likely said the candy was paramount but these days one needs to watch the calories. Moving along, this year I decided to go through some odd and spooky images and present them to you all in a little Halloween hell-o. I also captured some ghoulish delights around the city in my wanderings so who knows, perhaps I will make this a yearly thing. Only time will tell. These first few photos are from a gig that was happening at B.B. King’s and if memory serves me correctly, this was a show by The Misfits. Dim the lights, and snuggle close to someone you trust because these characters sure looked scary. This first ghoul was out to get the patrons of B.B. King’s without question but the wraith would later get a whopping care of Jerry Only and the rest of the band.
For as long as I can remember I have been a fan of comic books, super-heroes and pretty much the whole Science-Fiction medium as a whole. During college I did a short internship over at Marvel Comics and while I “used to” draw various doodles and images, this was put aside to be more serious about semi-professional music pursuits. Anyway, a few days ago was the annual NY Comic Con & Anime Festival which was held at the Jacob Javits Center on the West Side. I attended all three days of the massive event and documented these adventures over on the official blog for my PiercingMetal.com website since I had been able to wander the halls as a member of the press. Clicking the logo below will bring you over there so you can enjoy what we saw and hopefully feel like you were walking next to us. This personal blog might do that every so often, and of course the PiercingMetal.com one might send readers over here when the need arises.
Please note that comments are disabled on this leader posting as we prefer any that readers might have be placed on the actual content postings. Have fun. We did post our visit to the fashion show that was held at the Comic Con by the Hangry & Angry folks and you can see those observations and images by clicking HERE.
Recently some friends and I participated in a cancer fund raiser for the St. Baldrick’s Organization. If you have never heard of them before, please know that they focus their energies on raising money to help get more research for Children’s Cancer. What makes them interesting and a little different, is that you are able to volunteer to be a barber or get your head shaved in solidarity with the kids that lose theirs during treatment or from the illness. A detailed play by play about the event and a ton of fun photos can be found by clicking the logo below. I loaded this particular narrative under my PiercingMetal Musings blog since I went into this event using my website brand and fellow Metal supporters as my teammates. It was one incredible and unforgettable night.
Should you wish to leave us a comment about this adventure, we ask that you leave it under the full narrative on the PiercingMetal Musings Blog as they have been disabled on this signpost. Thanks very much.
