I think I’ll be able to participate to the Your Friend the Rat commentary.
The thing is, I don’t think I’ll have anything to say about it. So, if I do it, that will be to see if everything is okay (skype and all that stuff) for the Ratatouille commentary (for which I’ll have some things to say).
Pixar.rocks: If you’re all right with that time, then welcome! By the way, that’s 60%, since you have 3 of 5 items ready.
A reminder to everyone: If you’re intending to participaite in the Ratatouille commentary, we’re going to need you to participate in the Your Friend the Rat commentary, since this is a way to practice using our technology and our scheduling.
Mitch: It should be easy to plug in the microphone; just look for the pink hole in the computer. This would be 4:30 PM in California, by the way. I can’t wait to hear what you’ve got to say about Your Friend the Rat…or anything else.
A113 - Ha-ha! Yeah, the installation process sounds simplistic enough.
By the by, Is there any particular brand/type of computer microphone that you would recommend?
Oh yes, 4:30 PM PDT/PST will fit into my schedule perfectly.
I’m a little nervous about attending this “practice session” actually, but I’m sure I’ll get into the swing of things soon enough. I have no idea as to what types of comments I’ll put forth; however, I’ll do my best! Heheh.
Thanks for taking the time to figure all of this out and set everything up for us, by the way! I didn’t think that a (Pixar Planet) fan commentary would ever be possible…
A computer microphone - SORT OF (One on the headphones is broken on my headphones, but my sister has a good quality set that I have to ask her if I can borrow.)
Working computer - YES
Just to double check, according to the World Time Clock, if it is 7:30pm Eastern time (in the US) on Friday 12th September, here’s a link that lets you know all the times around the world at that time. Make sure to look at this list and see if your time matches up. (At least I hope that link is correct…) You guys in the US still have daylight saving going on now, don’t you?
I’ve PM’ed qxgnxamy my Skype screename, and my guess is that once everyone has done so, he will PM the list of our screenames to all those involved so we can add each other to our contacts? You will have to let me know how the conference is going to work so I know how to be added to the discussion.
Honestly, I think 15 mins is too short of time even to do the short film. It may seem like a lot of time, but it will be good to introduce ourselves to each other beforehand to warm things up, make sure the technical side of things is running correctly, and to also discuss what we are going to say, and maybe go over some rules…? I think we should give our selves an hour, then at least if we finish early, it’s no problem.
I’m really excited for this, but also a bit nervous. I’ve been conversing with you guys for well over a year now, but never “on the phone” so to speak. But I’m sure I’ll be ok, and if you guys are as friendly and funny in person as you come across on this forum, we should have a grand time. Heh.
Thanks A113 and qxgnxamy (and anyone else involved), for organising this, too. I’ve always known that us members on Pixar Planet would be more than capable of doing something to demonstrate out Pixar fandom on this scale, if we were given the opportunity. Hopefully this will prove me right. =)
Well, let me think about this Peter. My class starts a 6:00 PM. It takes me 45 minutes to get there because the traffic there will be very, very frustrating. And it takes me a totaly of 30 minutes to eat dinner. So if you take 75 minutes off before my class starts, That would mean as soon as the commentary is done, I have gotta jet out of there and start eating.
