Yes my dear friends in Geek, today is the first day of the 2014 NY Comic Con which is once again being held at the spacious Jacob Javits Center on the West Side of town. Normally I do one of these broadcasts the night before but with so many posts going up yesterday I set this one to be scheduled for the wee hours of the morning on the day of the Con. As you read this I am still sleeping since its post time was 12:30 in the morning. A little early for me for sure but with such a crazy schedule today and over the next three days that follow it, the more rest the better I can attend to these adventures. I’ve secured the proper Press Credentials this year and cannot wait to share all of my findings with you readers here on the PiercingMetal.com site.
Hello there my fine toy and collectible loving readers, this is just a quick note to let you know that the 2014 Toy Fair is officially in NYC over at the Javits Center and that I will be heading over their brandishing my best plastic sword and shield in order to bring you the scoop on the latest offerings from some of our favorite companies. I’ve been attending this awesome industry event for the past three years as a member of the press and its always exciting to share the latest developments in the action figure world to your attention. With the upcoming “Guardians Of The Galaxy”, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”, “Captain America The Winter Soldier” and “Godzilla” films being among the properties that are hitting the big screen this year, I am sure that our toy collections are going to find us running out of cash quite a few times. Don’t blame me of course, you can point the finger at Diamond Select Toys, Mezco Toyz, Dark Horse and NECA to start (we are only kidding lads as you know we LOVE what you release). I will once again be joined by my comrade in arms Mr. Skeleton Pete who will not only be offering up some additional photographic assistance to me but also be compiling his own thoughts for narratives on his own branded site.
As you can see, I am up way early and that is because we want to hit the opening ceremonies this year. We’ve been told that Ms. Alicia Keyes is going to be a guest speaker and present her involvement in a gaming package. That sure sounds interesting and while this coverage is not the most Metal of topics, you know that we are raising our sites “Geekometer” to maximum since most of our fans love the action figure, comic book and film topics that get discussed here as well. The plan is to break the coverage up in the similar fashion to that of the NY Comic Con and span several days in serialized chapters that allow you maximum enjoyment. Stay tuned for those postings but for now it’s playtime for PiercingMetal 🙂
On your mark, get set, STRUM!!!! It’s that time of the season my guitar slinging friends and you know what I am talking about. Yes, the 2013 Brooklyn Autumn Guitar Show will be here in a mere seven days and that’s a week for those of you not paying any attention. So get your guitar and bass needs in order and make the list for easier shopping at the show. Check out the super cool poster for the event.
As I am not attending this massive concert event, I just wanted to get a last minute posting up for those fans who might be going to learn what they are most excited about and to remind them it is actually happening tomorrow in case they forgot about it for some odd reason. Hey, there is so many shows happening these days that I find myself getting forgetful so why would some of you not be the same…..
Remember that the show features not only the mighty Metallica but also Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rise Against, The Deftones, BASSNECTAR, Dropkick Murphys, Gogol Bordello, Infectious Grooves, Rocket from the Crypt, FLAG, Silversun Pickups, Foals, Tomahawk, Destroid, The Joy Formidable, Datsik, Borgore, Japandroids, Dillon Francis, Adventure Club, 12th Planet, Death Grips, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Vista Chino, Dirtyphonics, The Dirtbombs, DEATH, Fu Manchu, Dead Sara, The Bronx, FIDLAR, The Orwells, All Shall Perish, BATTLECROSS, Cauldron, Matt Clarke, Calico, dehaan and Trujillo Trio….
We at the PiercingMetal Command HQ would love to hear thoughts from those who might have attended so I will be leaving the comments open on this for your chance to make us feel as though we were there with you. If you do go please have fun and remember to stay off the stage…….
Attention all slingers of the six and four string weapons of music, it is that time of the season once more as the Brooklyn Springtime Guitar Show makes its return for 2013 at the beautiful Brooklyn Bowl. I’ve brought this fun event to your attention in the past and wanted to let you all know that both DJ Uncle Mike and Lisa Sharken will be at the ready to bring you the best event possible. We are now at t-minus two weeks and as you see on the poster will happen on April 7th from 11am to 5pm.
