I decided the other day that I'd like to do something special for the release of Brütal Legend, since the music Shafer seems to be celebrating in that game is an important part of who I am. One of the possibilities that jumped to mind was to crank up my amp and rock out on my guitar live.
So then I thought, "I've already got a good webcam coming in the mail. Is there some way I can stream a live show for free?". And you know what? Hell yes, there is!
Well, now that I've seen Ustream in action, I've decided I'm going to start a live show there in the coming weeks (assuming the new webcam I got is up to the job). The question is: What sort of show should it be?
It might just be about guitar and music. I bought that webcam so I could upload videos of my songs onto YouTube. No matter what I do with the live show, I'll be playing guitar at least some of the time. But I could do a show about gaming.
I'd basically be responding to whatever articles I read that day, perhaps using that day's blog as the starting point... then responding to questions and comments. Maybe I'd mix it with brief guitar lessons. When I write a review, I could answer questions about the game and respond to criticisms. When I hold a contest or giveaway, the gist of it would be on the show. Honestly, I'm a clearer thinker when I'm writing, but it might be less dry for y'all if you can watch and listen to me. It would be sometime in the afternoon or night, Central Standard Time.
What do you think? Would you be interested in a live or recorded video show that reflected this blog's content? Check out Ustream show or two, like this one, and let me know.
By the way, I'll likely be away from internet most of the time until Monday. Don't worry. I'll make it through... somehow.
