LivinBob at MetalMark

Along with Zac Blythe, Socrates Lozano and Joey Ybarra began shooting videos for LIVIN, a YouTube channel highlighting people, locations and activities around the San Joaquin Valley. (LIVIN is an acronym for “life in Visalia is nice.”) Blythe has since ceased partnering in the project, but Ybarra and Lozano are aiming to keep it alive despite the loss. In the last month, their 12 YouTube videos have received more than 24,000 views. “Friends and family seem to love it,” Lozano said. “Depending on the video, our audience either loves it or they hate it, but for the most part, we get positive comments.”
