Kissin’ Time: A KISS Valentine Playlist

I love KISS. Joanna got our family tickets to see them on the End of the Road tour this summer. This is all the reason I need to put together a Valentine-themed KISS playlist. Some of these songs are on the nose, some are innuendo, some just have ‘love’ in the title and some are… Read More ›

KISS at Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

Being thankful for KISS’ performance at the 2014 Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade

Remember when KISS performed during the 2014 Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade? It was awesome. Not because it was a spectacularly good performance or anything.
