Movie Sign!

Hello all of three people still with eyeballs here...

I've been messing around with the service/app Rabb.it for awhile now.  It's a thing that lets you stream content like YouTube and Netflix and Amazon Prime etc etc with friends online, to watch stuff together, with chat and optional voice/video, but I've stuck with chat so far.

I love the idea, because some people will remember all of us hanging out and watching Babylon 5 when it hit Scifi Channel with reruns.  Plus I love community and chatting.  With my birthday looming a few weeks ago, I decided to pull the trigger and have a get together online to watch some of my favourite bad movies that have been Trisked over the last few years.

Aaaand it was a spectacular non-event, due to various factors.  But I remained undeterred, and tried again during the Super Bowl, and had a bunch of people show up.  Until I started the movies, and people trickled in and tried it out to see how things worked, we kinda just hung out and watched MST3K episodes, and Super Bowl trailers.

It was a LOT of fun.

I have every intention of doing this again.  I would love to do it with movies I have plans to feature on Trisk, because getting more eyeballs on them will make for better jokes and catch things I miss.  But I'm also not above watching good movies we enjoy, or some tv shows (I would love to chill with folks and watch Person of Interest, for example), or whatever.

I do also have the Doomed! documentary about Roger Corman's failed Fantastic Four movie lurking around as a possibility too.

If there's anyone out there that's interested, I'm kinda poking around to see what nights are good for folks.  Right now, Saturday or Sunday evening around 9 is my default idea.

Oh, and just to keep the legacy alive, I'm calling this the "Subreality Cinema".
