    I know I'm not on here much anymore; I think I go through phases where I don't feel like I fit in here on the board, and w/ the activity level here having died down a lot, I think it's an extended phase. BUT, if there's one thing about about Whitechapel I'll always love, it's the Skype Nights. And it's been a while since the last one... September, I think? December is still a while.
    I'm opening up a new thread, since I think a lot of people might skip over the Chatroom thread, since that's a pretty small group stationed there. I'd like to get an idea of when the best day would be to have another Skype Night, a big ol' shindig of a chat. So let me know: best general days of the week, or if you know you have a completely free day in the near future of which you could devote a few hours to bring silly. And if you've never been in one of our Skype chats before, I REALLY WANNA HEAR FROM YOU- the more the merrier (unless there's, like, 30 of us at one time; that sounds like a total disaster actually).
    I do have some activities in mind, and I'll throw some ideas out once I can get an idea of if this'll actually get off the ground.

    Hey Hey!!

    As everyone who does this seems to be in the US/Americas, then it would be best for me on Sunday/Mondays, as I work late shifts and can be up till 2am GMT.

    Monday nights might work for me, if I can borrow the hotspot.

    I am for sure off next Monday, so I'll go ahead and throw out an activity idea!

    If you've made it to a Skype night before, or if you've read about them, you know the dramatic readings are now kind of a tradition. This time, I think it'd be cool if we had a piece picked out before hand to do a monologue. Entirely optional, mind; I don't want to make this a chore. But if you have something you'd like to read- some lyrics, a weird poem, a nice dramatic monologue that would be hilarious when done in a funny voice- make sure you have it w/ you Monday. It'll be like a little poetry slam.

    I'm down. I keep forgetting I even have Skype...
  4.  (10988.13)
    Ooo, I'll join you. I need to work out if I have skype and then how to use it though... Brain not particularly functional today, but should be 'better' by the 24th/25th.

    And where do I find the connection details, pretty please? :-)

    @littlepurplegoth and anyone else wanting to join for the first time: my Skype name is ichbinbrittanica, so go ahead and add me a as a friend. I'll be the one starting the call, and I'll probably start fairly early. If there's enough interest, I might even try to break Andre's record of 10 hours! But jump on whenever you can, I'm the only one here that has to be insane about this.

    ...Speaking of Andre, if he doesn't show up to this one, I say we all go down to Brazil and beat him w/ his own dead hookers.

    I'll bring my own dead hookers, just in case Andre's already crammed his into a trash compactor behind one of Brazil's infamous gray-market bikini factories.

    Also, the monologue thing works out kinda nicely - I've been meaning to practice those so I can help my roomie out with her acting.

    Also also, my Skype name is ZeitgeistSam, if y'all feel so inclined to add me ahead of time.

    Not 100% certain I will make it but I'll try! And if I do I promise I'll read some of my own poetry (you poor bastards). t3xtur3 on Skype.

    Hmm. I finally have a computer that may actually be able to do Skype and so I really do have to figure out how. Unfortunately though I may have a class at the same time (7-10pm Pacific), I just don't know what time the meetup is.

    Regarding time: usually these things start around 6pm Central Standard Time (GMT-6), but taking our European folks into consideration, I should probably start earlier. If anyone's better at understanding time zones than I am, feel free to tell me the best time to start. Thinking about it makes my brain hurt a little.

    Also, I'm looking into recording options. Anyone who's more experienced in recording Skype calls may also feel free to jump in and take over/ tell me what I should do. I think I should be able to get Audacity to work, but you never know.

    I could be up for this, if only because even the slimmest shot at an opportunity to beat Navarro with a dead hooker is too good to pass up.
    I've understood this correctly, right?
