Topic: HM Movie Night #15- Comedy Horror - 7/28/2012

Ah, most likely the last Movie Night before HorrorFest 2012.  There are some differences this time (I'm doing an experiment due to requests), so make sure to at least skim the bold parts.

HM Movie Night #15- Comedy Horror

Skype convo name-  HM Movie Night #15 - Comedy Horror

Date:  Saturday, July 28th, 2012

Movies & Times (US Eastern/Euro GMT time):
See below for explanation of the odd times

THE REASON FOR THOSE ODD TIMES is that some people have requested some extra time between films to discuss the film in various aspects.  Such as plot, dialogue, cinematography, etc.  This is an experiment, so we'll see how it goes.

How we do this:
We use Skype (free) in text and voice chat mode.  We can't handle full video chat.  Also, it's helpful if you have a microphone separate from your speaker, earphones, or a full headset- t's not fun listening to feedback loops or someone piping their movie directly into a mic.  If there is a problem and you don't fix it, I'll kick you from the convo.

For new people, after you register a Skype account, go to the "Register your Skype name" thread and post it.  It would also be useful if you PM me on HM and/or send a 'Contact Request' via Skype to  azathoth1945  BEFORE the 28th.  If you try to get in for the first time during the Movie Night, you'll have problems.  And sorry, I'm not rebooting the entire conversation in the middle.   Downloading & installing Skype, registering a name, and posting/letting me know shouldn't take more than 10-15 minutes.

I set up the initial conversation on Skype, and invite the regulars so they will automatically be called in.  New or less frequent attendees I may have to call in after they log into Skype, but that is no big deal.

Other important stuff:
This will be a RECORDED EVENT, so behave your manners.  This will be put up for podcast later, so you have been warned, and if you don't want that don't talk  (Text is not recorded).  Now this is an adult event, so I'm not asking anything special.  Just no bashing of other people on the convo, no discussion of your Tuesday "pig love" night, etc.  Basically, follow HM's rules, especially #1- Respect.


If anyone has any questions, feel free to post them here or PM me.  I hope for a nice turnout this time; a bunch of movies that have the action and humor to keep the talking going.

Hope to see you there!
-Azzy

I'll likely be there, but I'm not sure how this shitty DSL's going to handle it.  I might stick with texting at first just to see if it holds up.  I have two of the three flicks on DVD; I'll have to re-download Tucker & Dale.

I've sorted a babysitter out and have the whole weekend dan free ( so no drunken phonecalls this time ) so I'm officially there. smile will be getting myself some popcorn and chicken crisps to celebrate the event. How do you record it azzy by the way? Just out of interest.

Re: HM Movie Night #15- Comedy Horror - 7/28/2012

Just the audio off of Skype.  If you want a fell tech breakdown, it's easier if we just do it over SKype- it gets a bit complicated.  And just so you know, full names are never used.  Usually we just go by our nicknames/HM names, but sometimes we let out a first name once in a while.  Didn't want to scare anyone with the whole "you will be recorded" thing, but if I don't tell everyone that's like a federal charge in every country.
And I don't like jail.  lol

Re: HM Movie Night #15- Comedy Horror - 7/28/2012

I don't care who says my name over Skype so long as they say it spelled correctly.

Re: HM Movie Night #15- Comedy Horror - 7/28/2012

Azzy calls me crispy anyway haha. I'm not bothered about my name being mentioned. Aslong as its all good things of course! big_smile really quite excited for it now.

Re: HM Movie Night #15- Comedy Horror - 7/28/2012

Aw, why can't this be on a Friday?

Re: HM Movie Night #15- Comedy Horror - 7/28/2012

Experience has shown Fridays are not a good day for Movie Nights.  But hey, we can do an impromptu one anyway.  If you want to watch some of the movies a day early, works for me.

Re: HM Movie Night #15- Comedy Horror - 7/28/2012

I might be able to pop in and watch the 7:30 movie with you.

Re: HM Movie Night #15- Comedy Horror - 7/28/2012
