Trying an experiment this evening. Should have posted this yesterday, but, alas, I did not. Anyway, the idea goes like this:
Google Plus Netflix: a bunch of people watch the same movie at the same time though Netflix Instant and run a live text commentary on Google Plus.
This could be awesome. This could suck.
My main impetus for doing this is the idea of the commentary, but in such a fashion that it was “recorded” but not a podcast, and possible so that if someone watches the movie later they can read the commentary on roughly the same pace. Also, using a text medium like this means that there is no limit to the number of participants, so I’m hoping we get lots of voices, from the funny mocking tones to the knowledgeable remarking on production values.
Of course, the latter may be in short supply since I chose Birdemic: Shock and Terror as our inaugural film.
If you want to participate, go here. The movie will start at 10 PM Eastern.
