It's a scary world out there with COVID-19 going around. It would probably be best to stay inside and watch movies. In fact, your boss may even told you to permanently stay inside and watch movies. But watching movies alone is no fun. What good is watching something if you can't chat with your friends while watching it? I agree. That's why I made a website to do a massive goon/friend watch party 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. It's a relatively simple interface, just a big rear end video stream with a chat box on the side. It should work on all devices, PC, iOS, Android, SmartTV, Xbox, Playstation, FireTV OS, etc. It should also work in all web browsers, Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Opera, etc. The chat is Discord based so as long as you have a Discord account you can chat with us. You can even join the Discord server permanently with the invite link below and use your phone or device to chat while you fullscreen the video stream on your main watching device.

This website should be able to support quite a lot of people. Over the last few days of beta testing using GBS goons we have gone up to 40+ viewers and it put nearly zero strain on the system, worked flawlessly. So don't even feel bad about leaving a tab open and muting it and checking back later. I have briefly discussed with other members about becoming video DJs, giving them time slots to stream whatever they see fit. While nothing is quite set in stone yet I am interested in finding a handful of people who have the resources available to participate. If this is something you would be interested in please reach out to me and we will discuss it. Preliminary wise, you will need a computer that can run OBS in 1080p with at least 3,500kpbs upload speed capabilities as well as a very large movie library.

As of right now I have a Now Playing Discord bot to announce the name and year of the film, but maybe tonight or tomorrow I will be working on getting Discord itself to display what is currently playing. If you join midway through a movie you can always scroll up until you see the Now Playing bot, or ask anyone in chat. I am also looking for Discord mods who can help keep the peace throughout the day even if I am not online. If this is something you;d be interested please reach out to me.

I am trying to play a good mix of popular films and more deep cuts that us film nerds would really enjoy. If you have film ideas, genre ideas, theme ideas, etc please tell me or post a Letterboxd list. I have 7,500 films personally so there is a very solid chance I will have a large majority of what you want to see and can slap it in the queue or straight up just change the movie that's playing if the chat agrees. When it comes down to it, it's roughly 350+ films per month to stream 24/7. There is no way I can pull this off without your input. Help me out!

I look forward to watching with you goons!

Yeah it was directed by “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” director Tobe Hooper (with some not entirely welcome assistance from Spielberg who wrote/produced it). It’s just bonkers the whole way through.

Very much looking forward to what else is on the playlist.

looks like it if you go to the discord, type in "/nick reignofevil", and login to the website and whatever. just tried it and it used the name I used for the /nick command and not my discord name.

Fixed an issue where the Discord was kicking people randomly. Shouldn't do that anymore! Also a new Discord invite link: https://discord.gg/4YRHUZS

I had "Grant Temporary Membership" enabled so it wouldn't actually join the server and would eventually kick you for idling or refreshing. It will not do this anymore.

Per the guy who made the Discord chat bot



Until then, Discord still certainly works. Just join the server with the invite link. Hopefully the chat works tomorrow! Too bad I didn't write the bot. It's nothing on my end or your end. His bot is just bad.

Another satisfied customer!

But really though thanks for viewing with me goons. This has so far been a ton of fun. Averaging between 16-24 people almost 24/7 now. Plenty of people chatting along with the movie. We have watched some popular stuff, some weird stuff, and some dope deep cuts so far. Please, feel free to suggest any themes or genres. Even specific movies. I will do what I can! Right now I am curating the playlist for tonight as High Tension plays out. What are you all in the mood for tonight?
