SATURDAY NIGHT RIFF THE MOVIES
What we do is play public domain movies from YouTube while everybody is in voice and riffs on the movie. This is done in the spirit of Mystery Science Theatre 3000 or Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.
-
But we will not be playing any episodes of MST3K or Elvira. There's plenty of other movies that were never aired on either those shows. Aliens. Godzilla. Dracula. Frankenstein. Airplane disaster flicks. Mad bombers. Teenage scofflaws in hotrods. 
-
Most of the movies we will be playing are older low budget films from the 50's - 70's but there will be some exceptions. The genres will cover horror, science fiction, monsters, disaster, thrillers, crime, exploitation, and maybe even a few comedies but most of the laughs we see will be unintentional.
Riff a short set of comments on a particular subject (Merriam-webster).  Riffing (MSTing) is a method of mocking a show in the style of the television series Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K)[1] and, in particular, is a form of fan fiction in which writers mock other works by inserting humorous comments, called "riffs", into the flow of dialogue and events.[2]  Wikipedia

If you want to participate here are some essentials.

You need a viewer that is capable of playing embedded webpage media. This includes the default SL viewer, Firestorm, and Singularity.
-
If you participate in voice you must wear headphones, a whole sim full of feedback is not fun.
-
Gestures are okay, but please keep it reasonable. Let's not become a Brazilian dance club.
-
We may be filmed so remember that you and your voiced comments may be recorded and uploaded to YouTube.
