This Limited Edition KISS Pez Collectors Edition Pack, featuring the band members from 2002 to the present — Gene and Paul plus drummer Eric Singer and guitarist Tommy Thayer — is owned by my pal Teddy. Like any good collector, Teddy has never removed the guys from the safety of their original collectible storage tin, which was apparently first released in 2012. Folks who bought this new and took good care of it (i.e. never opened it) are currently selling these for about $49 via various Amazon listings! Lick it up!

Here’s a fun item that I spotted at the recent National Stationery Show / New York Now Gift Show: Officially Licensed Kiss Rollerball Pens! Kiss‘ bassist and mouthpiece Gene Simmons may be an arrogant blowhard, but he also really knows audience. The Kiss Army of fans are nothing if not a fiercely loyal legion who will purchase virtually anything that has the Kiss name it. And now at last the time of the Official Kiss Pen has come!
This design is called the Rock Poster!
This one is called 1978!
Each pen comes with its own colorful case, to keep it safe and in pristine condition between uses! Please take note that the Spaceman character is fully represented by both guitarists Ace Frehley and Tommy Thayer!
And since these pens and accessories are all officially licensed, you can enjoy them with no fear of litigation! Find a retailer in your area at This Link!
Hey what’s up. Do you happen to be a fan of the legendary rock band Kiss? It’s OK to admit it. Even though Gene Simmons is the Donald Trump of Rock, there are no judgments here. But if that is the case, then you may want to know that for one night only, Wednesday, May 25th at 7:00 PM, Fathom Events will bring KISS to the big screen for an explosive event in KISS Rocks Vegas, a live concert film that no fan will want to miss.
Legendary street artist and social satirist Ron English’s Hulk Baby Mural has been on display at the corner of Houston and Bowery since late April, but you know sometimes we arrive a little late to the party, because so much else is going on. Because, NYC!
The selfie-friendly mural shows English’s Hulk Baby character (AKA Temper Tot) set against a patchwork American flag, featuring reproductions of the many scathing corporate/brand parodies, memes and unique characters he has introduced over the past two decades as “guerilla” billboards, paintings and collectible art toys. Here are a few of our favorites.
The child model in many of Ron’s paintings is actually his son, Mars English who is perhaps a teenager by now, and an artist in his own right.
The Grinning Skull is one of English’s most famous images.
I could be wrong, but I think Ron might like to smoke pot.
This is one of my favorites.
You could spend hours discovering new images on the Hulk Baby billboard and it’s certainly worth paying a leisurely visit.
