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.
When everyone else was waiting on line to get into the Mark Ryden exhibit across the street, I was in the newest addition to the Paul Kasmin Gallery empire taking photos of Eric Parker’s latest show (and third solo-exhibition with the gallery), which had opened the previous night. Because timing is everything.
Erik Parker’s Undertow is an exhibition of new paintings which represent a confluence of ideas and styles explored in previous bodies of work including the Maps, Heads, Landscapes and Hieroglyphics. Parker’s iconic, highly-saturated palette and intricate compositions are amplified by collage and airbrush techniques that create a balance of density and open space.
Undertow offers insight into the evolution of Parker’s work over the last two decades. Here, the artist continues to critically chart the world’s current political, social, and economic landscapes with compositions brimming with references to media, popular culture, music, and art history. Synthesizing multiple elements from his myriad styles into new dynamic compositions, the artist works at breaking down the metanarratives of late modernist painting while simultaneously digesting the pictorial chatter of scrolling feeds of social media.
Highlighted in the exhibition are Parker’s new shaped canvases with which he develops the narrative possibilities of form. In Offshore the support structure of the canvas takes the shape of binocular lenses, framing the action as if seen from afar.
Parker’s large-scale, two-part shaped canvas titled Disconnected, features a Pyramid representing the global elite. The pyramid is physically separated from the second canvas – literally leaving the rest of the picture, or perhaps, society behind.
Erik Parker’s Undertow will be on Exhibit Through January 23rd, 2016 at Paul Kasmin Gallery, Located at 297 Tenth Avenue in the Chelsea Gallery. District.
