Star Trek FTW!

You guys are my kind of people. I was secretly hoping for Star Trek, but of course I couldn't say that! I'm so pleased that our next YA Cinema date will feature so much awesomeness!

Now, it's time to figure out WHEN we'll be watching this movie. I'm afraid my husband has requested that I start them after the kids are in bed, so I can't go earlier than 8 PM MST (or 10 PM EST). So sorry if that's too late for some, but I think overall that's a decent time for most of the US viewers to make. Stupid time zones.

So I'm thinking right before Labor Day on this one—somewhere between September 1-3rd. Please vote for what day you prefer on the sidebar poll, and we'll get together on Twitter then. You'll have until Friday to vote, that way everyone has time to get hold of the movie if they don't have it (seriously, just go buy it you don't have it, sheesh).

Voting Time

We've picked five movies for you to choose from. We tried to have a good variety, so hopefully there's something there you like (or even a few). The poll will be on the sidebar, and the winning movie will be queued up for our next YA Cinema party!

So, in no particular order:

13 Going On 30

You've Got Mail

Star Trek

Stranger Than Fiction

Dan In Real Life

Happy voting! Can't wait to see what wins:)

Wordle (click for a larger verson)


Fun stuff for last night's first YACinema event, Penelope!

According to THIS website, we had 311 tweets, from 16 twitter users. Wow!
In case you missed the fun, (or want to read everyone's tweets like I do!) I've created a hash tag archive, which can be found here:

and finally, I'm working on a Wordle, up later this afternoon! :)

I don't know about any of you...

But I had a BLAST! :) Thanks to everyone who participated. Stay tuned for an update on the NEXT #YACinema, coming to this blog, soon!

First Movie: Penelope!

Hey, everyone! Welcome to this new YA Cinema thing!

Our first event will be this Friday, August 13th at 9PM EST. I know we should probably watch something scary, it being Friday the 13th and all, but we've decided the only way to kick off YA Cinema is with Penelope.

Also, I am a wuss when it comes to scary movies.

To participate is simple:

1. Get a copy of the movie.

2. Prepare any treats you would like to have. (I'm so going Reese's Dark and pretzels.)

3. Start playing it at 9PM EST.

4. Join in the comments/ridiculousness on Twitter at #YACinema.

It's like a giant online slumber party thing! Can't go wrong with that, can you? You don't even have to go out and buy cuter jammies.

We will probably have votes for subsequent movies and times (I know 9PM EST could be a little early for our Pacific Coasters, so know that times will vary). I can't wait to see how this works out.

Stay tuned!
