Organizers Postpone The 2021 New York Tattoo Convention

The Statement:
Hey, hope you are well. The ongoing pandemic is causing huge uncertainty around international travel, especially into the USA. At this time we have indications from the New York health dept regarding the possibility of very-limited attendances at indoor events of approximately 20% – 25%. These contributing factors would severely detract from our vision of what will be a world class international tattoo convention. The integrity of the New York Tattoo Convention is a core value of the show.

Presenting The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards Winners

Well hello there my friends, I am back once more to discuss the topic of the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards. Now, the show has just recently ended its super long broadcast which was done live in front of a limited audience of artist participants and hosted by Trevor Noah. As expected the Rock and Metal awards were dished out before the broadcast and this narrative will showcase the entire list which we culled through by zipping past the stuff that didn’t interest us all that much. I don’t think I have to point out that I don’t really listen to much of the stuff that was honored do I? So sit back with that last glass of wine before the work week and if you are seeing this with the morning coffee make sure it’s a strong one. Here are your winners….may we have the envelope please.
