Piercing Ken Thoughts: So truth be told I don’t generally get to see too many Independent Films. I try to find the time but I am always either overwhelmed with the concert and convention side of PiercingMetal and don’t always have the means to do it. I didn’t see a single nominated film but did have some interest in the one called “Everything Everywhere All At Once” which many friends said they enjoyed. So I will root for that one from the cheap seats. What about you readers out there? Is this the kind of stuff that you key into? Chime in down below and let me know if you felt that anything was left out for some reason. I will return to this topic when they announce the winners after the Thanksgiving holiday. See you then for that news but of course I will keep the information flowing here on a regular basis on other items. Stay safe out there and I shall see you next time.
