PiercingMetal Thoughts: This is a great idea and one that we have seen in practice over the last few days as well. Over the last week, I’ve been watching “Live From The Living Room” clips from artists like Zebra’s Randy Jackson and even some local level friends who are just hoping to entertain anyone who feels like tuning in and escaping the monotony and daily political figurehead press conferences. I even did a quick “check in” clip for the readers of this website to see how everyone was doing and to spark up some chat for a few minutes. I might even make this a weekly endeavor since we really don’t know when our lives will be back to normal so please check that out HERE and tune in for more via our Social Networks since I’m going to be doing all that I can to keep your mind elsewhere. Closing up I wonder what you think about this livestream and if you will be watching. Chime in down below and let me know what you think. See you soon with more things to help you engage with your fellow Metalheads.
