So it was talked about in the Depression thread and a method of being able to stream movies in sync so everyone could watch the same thing at the same time with a chat room and whatnot was something universally desired, but a bit difficult to pin down in terms of a "how".
So VikingGuitar and I found a service that lets you do exactly what we were looking for - stream a movie that everyone can watch in-sync with a chat room we can all bum around in and riff the hell out of whatever we're watching. Thus, I'd like to get a semi-regular movie night started to help us deal with our collective SSS (Shizz Separation Syndrome) post-events or just in general and provide some good hangout time.
The site is myCircle.tv. You can register normally or sign-in via Facebook. (or login as a guest, though you can't change your screenname) Basically what will happen is I create a room to stream the movie from, and will post the invite code prior to the start of the movie so everyone can jump in. Then we have our own little viewing room with chat to watch the movie at the same time.
People can always do their own movie nights, but I figured a designated Shizz one would be a good start.
First up! (because it's technically my birthday weekend and fuck it, it's still my fav game-based movie)
WHEN: Saturday, March 19th
BEGINS @ 7pm EST / 4pm PST
I'll post the movie room invite code 20 mins. before start-time so people can login and fix any issues, and people can always pop-in after the movie starts too.
LETS DO THIS.
