I discovered yesterday that my projector is on the fritz. (Bad bulb) This would seem to put the LOSTathon in danger, save that snikanor
has nobally volunteered the use of his
projector while I wait for new bulbs to arrive from my supplier. My supplier is slow, and it's unlikely that the bulbs will be here before Saturday, so snikanor
's help is greatly appreciated.
Saturday looks to be the most logical day all around, thus Saturday is my current plan.
So here's the thing: There are 23 episodes in season 2, all about 47 minutes long. 23*47=1081 1081/60=18.016(repeating). That's 18 hours of LOST. Ouch. If we assume that people will be leaving around 10-11 in the evening, then the showing would start at 4am... Yeah. No.
We have other choices. For example, we could let the showing run late, such as midnight or 2am. 2am hurts my brain, but could be done. Midnight isn't too
bad, but still has the showing "start" at 6am. (No I don't actually expect people to show up at 6am) So what to do? We could cut out some episodes, or just start later in the season, or not watch the latest episodes... What do folks think?
Even if we manage to pair the length of raw footage down, I don't expect folks to sit in a dark room for 18 hours straight. I figure on setting things up so that it's easy for people to leave/enter when they want. There will be food and boardgames in the front room for folks who need a break from crazy LOST antics. I'm thinking on pizza for lunch and who-knows-what for dinner. If anyone has any food suggestions I'd certainly appreciate it.
