Re: Skype Call to Talk LTROI

i've used skype several times as a free vid chat platform. the only time I used it for a multi-party session was for business and this got into the Skype Connect (tm) product... hopefully somebody here knows more than I do about general, free skype.

So, we have:

dongregg
gkmoberg1
PeteMork
EEA
ltroifanatic
Nightrider

For those who aren't familiar with Skype, here are a couple of YouTube tutorials...it's not rocket science...





Those of you who already have a Skype account, please PM me with your Skype name so I can get my contacts database up to speed. I'll also need to know your time zone.

gkmoberg, why don't you provide me with your email address so we can explore Google Hangouts? Looks like it is very easy to have a multi-party Skype call, but there's no harm in seeing what Hangouts can do.

Please also give some thought to how long the call should reasonably be, and whether we want some structure to our discussion. Possibilities could include, for example,

- how you first came to see LTROI
- initial impressions
- comments about cast & crew: JAL, TA, HVH, Lina, Kare,
- talk about production features & music
- favorite scenes - what you loved/what didn't work
- larger themes
- ambiguities and unanswered questions
- FF
Etc. etc. etc.!

Ok, I've heard from:

Still need to hear from the rest of you regarding your Skype account before we can get this started! :)

Great! I've taken the liberty of removing your Skype address from your post because we like to maintain folks' privacy here. Anyone else, please PM me with the info.

Unless I''m mistaken, I think dongregg is the only holdout on getting our little Skype group together. So, we're coming down the home stretch toward some fun.

Yep. I'm the one. I'm just crazy busy for the next little while, but I hope you will let me plug into the group soon. :)

Eli, stop being such a little monster. Untie nice dongregg and let him use the computer. And stop singing The Sound of Music in his ear; I think he has it memorized at this point.

:lol:

Eli's cracking me up with her misinterpretations of the Do-Re-Mi song. "Tea, a drink with jammin' bread." Oy.

But then, she has a limited range of culinary experience. :roll:
