The Weirding MiSTy Theater Presents John Agar in Night Fright - LIVE! Tonight at 9:00pm CST /10:00pm EST.
First of all, The Weirding and The Weirding MiSTy Theater are in no way affiliated, nor associated, with Mystery Science Theater 3000, RiffTrax, or Cinematic Titanic, nor any of the properties or companies concerning these properties.
To "MiSTy a movie" refers directly to Mystery Science Theater 3000, and means to mock a movie (generally in a group) the way it was done on the show. But use of this slang, as well as any other images or references to the classic TV show, is in no way meant to suggest nor establish any actual association with those properties nor anyone who owns, or is affiliated with, them. MST3K is obviously the source of inspiration for this repeating event and all references to it are meant to honor the show on those grounds.
The Weirding does not own the rights to the movie, Night Fright, nor do we own the rights to any of the movies we MiSTy, many of which are in the public domain. We are well within our legal rights as artists to mock them though, as - pursuant to American Copyright Law - we are actually adding value to the original product. Which, in many cases here, is the only value these movies have.
We're still learning, so don't quote me on this, but I'm pretty sure you can join the Hangout without a microphone or camera and post in the chatroom. You may not even have to join the Hangout to use the chatroom. We are just now starting to figure out Hangouts and what the hell we're doing here, so please bear with us. There is a chatroom, somewhere, but I'm not sure how you get there nor how it works. If need be, we will establish a chatroom for the audience that does not require logging-in to the Hangout.
Again, not 100% certain about this, but I believe you can watch the live broadcast on both/either Google+ and[/or] the YouTube channel (see top and sidebar for links, which are also posted in the Event). You do need to have the movie itself playing at the same time (in another tab or window). We will count you down when we start the movie so that everyone is in-synch - this is the Infamous Countdown. We will announce the current timestamp throughout the film, as well, and you can always request it.
Once the movie starts, it does not stop until it ends. We will excuse ourselves if necessary but it's simply too much trouble to start and stop the film. Sometimes we will stop the movie to resynch if someone gets too far off the time but it's rare.
Absolutely no topic is off-limits and no joke goes "too far." If jokes regarding race, rape, general violence, necrophilia, religion, politics, pets - whatever you got - offend you, The Weirding MiSTy Theater is not the place for you. In fact, The Weirding is not the place for you. Please do not make a scene.
Showtime is 9:00pm CST, promptly. Hope to see you there and be sure to tell your friends!
