    So, let's try this Zoom get-together thing on Friday, shall we? Setting a time is difficult, because I want to accomodate the extremes of Nepal (Tim) and Nevada (Christopher), but let's try this:

    FRIDAY, JUNE 5 at 20:00 Norway time. That would be 11:00 Christopher time and 23:45 Timmer time. Not ideal, but most of us are in Europe anyway.

    I'll post a Zoom link in this thread on Thursday.
    I am extremely serious.

    Similar, though rather with mint juleps and rum.
    So, very sadly, have to take a rain check! Definitely will be there next time! It's a great idea!

    Yes.

    Sorry to hear that you can't make it, Steven and Martijn. I've never seen your mugs live, so that would be a first. But let's hope we'll get to repeat it at some point.

    Thankfully, the weather forecast for Friday is a rainy and chilly 14 C, as opposed to the sweltering summer days we've had recently, so that makes it ideal for indoors Zooming. At least here in Oslo.

    Here's the link for tomorrow's meeting:

    https://us04web.zoom.us/j/4386804511?pw … RSS28xdz09

    From what I know, all you have to do is to click it and I'll "let you in" (I'll be sure to Let the Right One In). But I think you need the free Zoom software: https://zoom.us/

    Raincheck! Could a film music quiz be incorperated somehow?

    Sure. I've nothing planned for this round, but if there is another, we could work something out.

    Yes, something like that. I've been part of Zoom quizzes before (although not about film music). I think there's a way you can share audio from your computer, so it doesn't sound like it's under a pillow from 100 meters below the sea.

    That would be preferable, yes. Although wasn't it you who said you'd enjoy a score performed on a soft pillow?

  4. Hey, how long do you expect it to be? I'm gonna be way late, because I have to watch a film on an online festival...

    We'll keep going for a couple of hours. If people fall by the wayside, I have several hungry FSM members eager to join. Alan will be later too.

  5. Apparently we had a 45 minute time limit! Or was it just me that got kicked out?

    You can now log in again. I don't know what happened.

  6. I was about to have to leave anyway as I have a work zoom meeting in 15 minutes. But Cailin, Thor, Alan, and Bregt, it was so awesome to meet and talk with you face to face, even if it wasn't in person. Let's do it again!
  7. The free Zoom rooms are 45 minutes long.

    Yes, lots of fun, but I'm really feeling it today. I kept going for 6 1/2 hours - and this afternoon, when I got up, I noticed 9 empty beer cans and half a bottle of red wine on my kitchen sink! When you guys left, a small group of FSMers entered. Thanks to Bregt, Filmscoregirl, Christopher and Alan! And Erik, who’s both FSM and Maintitles.

    However, the 45-minute limit thing was really annoying. I'm kinda angry at Zoom for taking advantage of our situation (with so many people relying on Zoom), and demanding premium accounts for longer meetings.

    It was a great time. Thanks to all who took part. I think that i missed the final 45 minutes - half a bottle of whisky caught up with me.

    Amazing that you can do that for 6 hours Thor!

    Anyhow, after the troubles with the 45 minute thing, and after I quit, I also had an electricity outage later that evening and Sien kept us awake for another few hours. What did you say to her in that weird Dutch of you Thor!? You must've scared her.

    Looking forward to the next meetup.
