Live Tweet!: Eternal Sunshine etc.

I've already mentioned this on Twitter, but might as well make it official here: the next big Tweet-off (so sorry for the bump, Simon!) is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. We're trying to a) do a film slightly less widely-beloved than Jaws and b) see if there's still a crowd on weekday nights. And I mean, c'mon, is there anything you'd rather do more on a Wednesday eve than watch Jim Carrey get his heart stomped on as Tom Wilkinson fends off Kirsten Dunst?

Deets:
Wed., July 22, 8pm PST/11pm EST (it's not that long, East Coasters)
BYODVD

As per Simon bumping his musical LT till all the way till mid-August: do we want these things to be that spread apart? Is two a month too few or just right? Not that we all have to do all of these every time, mind.

Oh, and thinking the tag should be #ESOTSM Hopefully people can remember that as they tweet. Or not?

Proposed hashtag is reasonable and suitable.

I don't think the live-tweets should be spread out unless we end up doing only Bela Tarr films--in that case, two years apart please. Otherwise, what's the harm in scheduling them weekly or every ten days? Again, the trial-and-error approach works for me. If no one shows up, or you start losing followers by the dozen, spread them out.

I prefer weeknights to weekends, personally, but that could get tricky for the Eastern Conference of this Live-Tweet League if we tend to start late.

I offer 6000% of my applause for your selection of Eternal Sunshine. If only every live-tweet selection could walk that line--you know which line I mean.

I mentioned this on Twitter but thought I'd post it here as well. Database upgrades will commence on Twitter tonight at 8:30 Pacific. They will try to avoid having any down time, but they say users will likely encounter more errors than usual for several hours.

Prepare to exercise patience during the LiveTweet.
