Greetings friends and I hope you are having a “Happy Sunday” so far since it’s only just beginning. The weather forecast is for “HOT” but oddly not as sweltering as yesterday was but if you do head out into the outside for any reason maybe bring a bottle of water with you and stick to the shady areas. So with that being said you should know that I don’t do these side posts to give you a weather forecast and I am here instead to share some cool news about this being the 12th Anniversary of “The Chronicles of Piercing Ken” Lifestyle Blog. As many of you know it simply as “Piercing Ken” based on its social media profiles. So here we are…still publishing on a pretty regular basis and with a pandemic not quite completely in our rear view mirror as of yet. Mind you its much different than it was during 2021 and 2020 but its still here so please be cautious. Now a little about twelve years, let’s recap a bit.
Last night, the winners of the 2022 Billboard Music Awards were announced and while we didn’t watch the broadcast we still cull together the list of the winners for our audience to examine. As is my usual practice, the nominations are left in the rundown so you can see who beat out who for the honor. Let’s take a look.
Top Artist: WINNER – Drake

The 75th Annual Tony Awards nominations were revealed by Joshua Henry and Adrienne Warren. Henry is most famously known for being the first to play Aaron Burr in “Hamilton” on the US Tour while Ms. Warren is known for being the legendary Tina Turner from “Tina – The Tina Turner Musical”. We also fondly remember her from being a part of the company of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Here now are your nominations.
