Piercing Ken Thoughts: I’ll keep my editorial soapboxing to a minimum on this since its our first time doing this sort of news here on “The Chronicles”. I did like seeing some of the actors we find in the Marvel Studios releases being given stars on the famed walk since those are the films that we tend to enjoy the most. I’ve not been to Hollywood in more than 20 years at the time of this writing and feel I need to get back and so some kind of feature about the sights and scenes to be found. This is the kind of fun news that helps one forget about just how bad it is out there right now thanks to the pandemic which is now in its third full month. I don’t know about your neck of the woods but I am already tired of the President, Governor and Mayor being a part of my daily television saying not much at all but let me not get political here since I am here to entertain and distract. What do you readers think about this news and the honored? Who would you like to see given a star on the famous walkway? Chime in down below as I’d love to hear from you. I am starting to get stir crazy from the lack of activity but let’s hope we are in a better place come September. See you again soon and please be careful out there.

Content Creator Ken Pierce Reveals “Ken Pierce Media” Blog

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Readership of “The Chronicles” and PiercingMetal.com; it’s with great pleasure that I reveal my latest endeavor to you all with KEN PIERCE MEDIA. Now before you get too worried that this will replace the sites that you’ve come to love over the years let me explain that this whole idea stemmed from an experiment. Earlier this year I consulted on some blogs in terms of design and strategy and this was done in our own currently used medium of WordPress. After doing this consulting, I realized that I could use some background in the Google Blogspot or “Blogger” medium so I created a brand-new blog called Ken Pierce Media. Initially, this was only going to be a placeholder for me to test the creative options of Blogger in so I could be of greater use to my clients. This notion changed almost immediately and now onto more of the overall grand design of this snazzy sounding blog.

PiercingMetal Goes To New York Comic Con 2018

Greetings and felicitations my friends and please pardon my intrusion into your Thursday but I am here to share the news that as you read this notice, I have begun exploring the annual New York Comic Con that takes over the Javits Center (and some surrounding places as well) for the next four days. It’s my ninth straight year attending and I am once again doing this as a member of the press. If this massive Pop Culture event interests you, you are going to want to follow my posts on PiercingMetal with THIS LINK. Since I plan on going to all four days, you should expect quite a few photos going live on that website and of course on our social networks. I love all the colorful and creative cosplayers that I meet and of course the awesome vendors.

Now most of you diehard readers of “The Chronicles” already know that I do NOT permit comments on these traffic redirecting posts and instead prefer that any topical notions that you might have be left on the post that most inspires them to be left on. Let’s stick to that practice for 2018’s event as well shall we? Also, I cannot stress it enough that you should head on over to our Official Social Networks of Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to lend that support love to the PiercingMetal efforts. There is strength in numbers and we’d love to have you along for the ride and enjoying the presentations as they are done and those channels allow you to be right on point with it all. Thanks for reading and we shall be getting back to more posts here once the deluge from NYCC has ended. See you then.

PiercingMetal Goes To NY Comic Con 2017 @ Javits Center

Good afternoon my friends. I’m taking a minute of your time to use The Chronicles as a PSA to let you know that I have just begun loading up my thoughts and images from the currently running NY Comic Con. As usual this event is taking over the Javits Center and beyond and I am proud to share that I am once again wandering this massive happening as a member of the press. If you click the graphic below, you will be transported over to the PiercingMetal.com website and see a rundown of the posts that are online.

So far there are a little more than a handful, but that is because the event is still running at the time of this writing. It’s common for me to post between 4 and 6 posts per day from the convention since I like to keep the images to “50” and no more per post. It’s more work like this but who cares, I want to give you the most I possibly can. Please check it out and know that much more is coming to this site as well based on all the things that I have been lining up.

Remember that the means to comment on this post has been turned OFF as I encourage those who are compelled to add thoughts to do so on the chapter that is most relevant to do so on. Thanks for listening.

PiercingMetal Goes To NY Comic Con 2016

Hey there readers of the Chronicles Of PiercingKen, I’m here today to tell you that I am once again exploring the massive event known as NY Comic Con as a member of the Press. The convention actually started yesterday but my first post went up on the PiercingMetal.com site a few short hours ago. I’ll be stockpiling my visual finds on that website until I run out of things to post. To see all of the adventurous fun all you need do is click the logo below as that will transport you over to the music and pop culture site. The tag will present all of the posted narratives from the convention and since this runs for a few days and we have numerous posts to share, you might want to check now and then return in a couple of days to see more until I am finished. Based on the photos that I took during the first day, I anticipate no less than “10” narratives on PiercingMetal. I’ll be back with more conventional PiercingKen.com stuff as soon as possible.

Please Note: Since this is a signpost to another resource, the means to comment here have been disabled. You can leave topical thoughts on any of the posts that suit your fancy on the PiercingMetal.com website. Also, if you are a fan of Instagram, you can check out the Official account by clicking HERE. A ton of additional images from the convention have been uploaded there for your enjoyment.
