Recently some friends and I participated in a cancer fund raiser for the St. Baldrick’s Organization. If you have never heard of them before, please know that they focus their energies on raising money to help get more research for Children’s Cancer. What makes them interesting and a little different, is that you are able to volunteer to be a barber or get your head shaved in solidarity with the kids that lose theirs during treatment or from the illness. A detailed play by play about the event and a ton of fun photos can be found by clicking the logo below. I loaded this particular narrative under my PiercingMetal Musings blog since I went into this event using my website brand and fellow Metal supporters as my teammates. It was one incredible and unforgettable night.
Should you wish to leave us a comment about this adventure, we ask that you leave it under the full narrative on the PiercingMetal Musings Blog as they have been disabled on this signpost. Thanks very much.

Hi there, glad you stopped by 🙂 So what is this “Chronicles Of PiercingKen” that you are looking at you might be asking, well let me try and explain it as best as I can.
To those who know me, I am going to ask you to sit tight for a moment so I can give a brief introduction to those who might not and have found this blog while randomly surfing around the Internet. My name is Ken Pierce and for the past six or so years I’ve been a music journalist who adventures out into the Metal night and offers up findings on my PiercingMetal.com website. It’s a blast and a half presenting what I experience to a wider audience than just my circle of friends and since its own launch in 2005 has greatly changed from what I originally thought it would be. I do hope you will click the link and examine it if Hard Rock and Metal music are up your alley. Now back to the program already in progress 🙂
Long before I was doing any journalist stuff, I always considered myself a little bit of an amateur photographer and I would constantly be snapping away at things that I saw in my travels. This meant that I had a lot of photos that fell outside of my music pursuit to show people and I needed a place to do so. It seems as though the days of flipping through a photo album were over thanks to the Internet and social networking sites like MySpace and the now dominating Facebook and many people were using these mediums to share with their friends. Honestly, this was not for me, and I decided to launch a new blog and post those treats for you in it. The name comes from what a couple of my publicity people call me, and I felt it worked even though I have nothing to do with piercings. It’s in name alone I am afraid.
What’s The Premise Of PiercingKen?: I really don’t have a particular “mission statement” yet, but after looking through my recent and older folders of photos I can tell you to expect museum stuff, travel and touristy stuff, New York City visuals, Art, Fashion and Food as they come up in my day and maybe even the occasional music piece that is worth talking about but would not fit on PiercingMetal. I just might even scan some old photos that I like and share them here as well. It’s a very open playing field that I am establishing. I’m going to let this be a little bit of a catch-all that brings you into my day a bit more. Sometimes I might be profound and at others rather absurd. Let’s see what happens. Enjoy the ride.
