Metal Inside(r) Home Quarantine is Metal Insider’s new column during this time of isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We asked artists five questions on what’s been keeping them busy ranging from their favorite movies, food they’ve been eating, music they’ve been listening to and more. We caught up with Off Road Minivan’s Ryan ‘Tuck’ O’Leary as he’s been spending this time starting a new podcast.
What have you been doing to pass time during Quarantine?
Like a million other people I started a podcast. It’s called Get Tucked! Out on all platforms. It’s just a music based interview show. Talking to my friends and favorite bands.
Have you been listening to any music or have any playlists worth checking out?
I’ve been listening to Self Defense Family – have you considered punk music, Hayley Williams – petals for armor and watching a bunch of dashboard confessional live performances. Yes metal as fuck I know.
A lot of people have been spending this time cooking including making their own bread, what food have you been prepping during this time?
Lots of slow cooked pulled pork, chicken, brisket that’s kind of stiff primarily. I’m starting to get a little thick though so need to back off.
In terms of entertainment, what movies, TV shows, books, or games have been keeping you busy?
My fiancé and I have been very obsessed with 90 day fiancé and have a 90 fiancé esq situation going on in our building. I balance out dumb reality TV with it’s always sunny and Seinfeld.
What advice do you have for your fans in isolation during this time?
Don’t stress about picking up a new massive skill or hobby. There’s been a lot of pressure to be active. Do whatever keeps you sane at this point. I’m usually very active and have lacked exercise overall. Once I get myself moving I feel much better. Go for a walk and get some sun. I’m trying to get that base for Beach season.
