Hello my friends and let me begin this one by asking how the summer has been treating you. So far it’s not been too super hot but as you know, its still only the tail end of June and July and August are often finding us seeking shelter from the heat. I’m just back from visiting my family and catching up with as much of the second day of the Specialty Food Organization’s “Summer Fancy Food Show”. This is my third year attending as a member of the press and its a treat to share some delicious finds with the readers of this lifestyle website. Let’s get moving. I will chime in as needed as the narrative plays along.

Tribeca Film Festival 2019: “The Dead Must Die” A Magic Leap Encounter

Hey friends, so as I’ve previously announced, I was going to be exploring the vast wonders that is the Tribeca Film Festival and while there are a ton of interesting films to check out, there are a score of other things to examine. One of them was this “Game Of Thrones” centric VR experience called “The Dead Must Die”. Take a look at the description and some images that my friend Dani from Royal Flush took when I was giving it a once over.

About The Experience: The VR encounter is called ““The Dead Must Die: A Magic Leap Encounter” and its a collaboration between the folks at Magic Leap and HBO. It’s an “immersive encounter” that uses a device called the Magic Leap One headset. Wearing this will bring the wearer into a “confrontation” with the wights themselves and it all culminates with a showdown with a White Walker.

Scenes From The 2019 New York International Auto Show: Part 1

Greetings my friends, it is great to find you joining “The Chronicles” of Piercing Ken on yet another adventure. The lyrics of “Born To Be Wild” begin with the phrase of “get your motor running, head out on the highway” and while I think the guys in Steppenwolf were referring to being on a motorcycle, I’m going to have it apply to our exploring the annual and ever popular New York International Auto Show that will be opening up at Javits Center in just a couple of days. Today I am coming to you from said event on its Media and Industry Day and rushing to get some images up so you know what you are in store for. As with our previous narratives like this one, its mostly a visual display with limited jibber jabber from me but I hope you have fun. Let’s go.
