Our Next Feature Presentation: Benny & Joon (6/15)

Join Us Saturday, June 15th @ ~8:00PM (US/EDT) Here: http://cytu.be/r/TroperCoven


For the uninitiated... A contingent of tropers (mostly from across America) holds regular get-togethers over the Interwebs on this site called Synchtube which lets individuals, such as ourselves, open and join in text-based chatrooms within typical web browsers (Firefox, Chrome, et. al.) that allow the chat participants to view YouTube videos in synchronization with everyone else present (without even needing to set up an account)... and we've decided to use said chatrooms to play cheeseball webvideos and feature-length movies found in the public domain which stretch all the way from letters B to Z, which everyone subsequently riffs on a la MST3K.

For over six years, everybody who gets involved mostly finds good enjoymentnote  in calling out tropes that are recognized in the videos and stories and coming up with jokes to fling back at whatever's happening on the screen, many of which turn into various in-jokes and running gags (a Coven Glossary is kept and maintained for everyone's help and convenience HERE) to repeat in the chat.

We're always looking for new ways to better coordinate and expand our activities and are more than happy to welcome newcomers interested in joining our gatherings.

Coven .gif Gallery

Should you find yourself with a compulsion to make .gifs out of content we feature and stumble across, this web domain in particular—Giflike—seems to be the best at being able to convert youtube videos, especially videos over 10 mins long, like we're most accustomed to finding/watching.

It's required to register an account name at that website in order to "publish" any .gifs (and access them as such), but the procedure is as easy as on the Synchtube servers; you just need a name and password, and providing an email address is optional.

If there's anything you've made that you would like us to include on this list, please either post it in this thread or PM Sean, and we will add it here.

Assault on Dome 4

Gangland

Golden Shoes

Hard Ticket to Hawaii

Maximum Overdrive

Murder Weapon

The Return of Captain Invincible

Seance (aka Killer in the Dark)

Everyone's favorite scene from TekJustice in gif form.

Also how do I directly link to the gif?

Edit 2: never mind, figured it out.

[up]After, you view the "published" product, there should be a button in the bottom-right corner, to the side of the streaming bar, that says "gif"

I just remembered that this coming Sunday we'll be approaching 13 nights since our previous (first) "re-run night", especially intended for re-watching old features on a regular basis.

Between now and Saturday, if you happen to think of anything that you believe we should see again, feel free to put it out there. Just don't all jump in at once; we got time to dwell and think on this. Whatever two titles may seem to generate the most interest, we will put to a vote before the beginning of Saturday's movie.

[up]EDIT: I have video of that, still, and I can apparently upload it to the same website and make a .gif out of it, if you'd really, really want that, but I wouldn't think that would be all that great without sound.

Anyway, time to put the .gif construction aside for a bit and get on with our show. Happening now, there's more of Limbo of the Lost, Captain Planet resolves religious and political strife in Ireland, a Double Dragon cartoon offers us some counter-intuitive messages about the dangers of video game addiction, and more. Then, at the top of the hour, prepare yourselves for the rare REBOOT of a MOCKBUSTER with the Korean Godzilla Yonggary!

[up][up]You don't want to watch that.

[up]Don't worry about it, and thanks for the .gif. I'll add it to the new archive, along with a few other new additions I'll call attention to, below.

Yeah, I got slammed pretty hard this week in terms of reading assignments. Then again, it comes with the territory when you're an English major. I'll definitely be there tomorrow.

This Thursday night, we got some classic black & white 50's science fiction from none other than the big man Roger Corman, with the likes of actors Peter Graves and Lee Van Cleef. Heck, this movie was featured on an early episode of MST 3 K, too.

I give to you... It Conquered the World!

[up][up]I'm assuming if you had to narrow that down to one, you'd still pick Foodfight!? Remember, you'll only be able to vote on one movie on Saturday.

Anyway, more of the original Yonggary (specifically, the German trailer): GODZILLA'S TODESPRANKE

I'll vote for Foodfight. I'm more at home hating bad CGI than bad filmography.

Have we watched movies by Vídeo Brinquedo? There you'll find not only bad CGI, but ripoffs of better-known movies.

Okay, time for us to get on with the show. We got more of Limbo of the Lost, Pooh Bear and Piglet have an important message for us, and, for a special treat, an episode from a mid-80's incarnation of The Twilight Zone. Then, at the top of the hour, we start Roger Corman's It Conquered the World.

Huh? For some reason ST isn't loading properly for me....

EDIT: It keeps working, then stopping working.

EDIT 2: Updating FF fixed it.

EDIT 3: Hang on, it keeps happening again. D=

EDIT 4: It doesn't seem to be clearing up. I'll try again in a few minutes. Otherwise I'll have to miss tonight. v_v

EDIT 5: I give up. It's only working for a few minutes at a time for some reason.

[up]Shame. Can't say you didn't try, though. Hopefully we'll have better luck tomorrow.

In other news, got loads more .gifs to add to Our growing gallery tonight. Quite a few of them are actually good, too.

Abraxas: Guardian of the Universe

* "Reproduction Commenced..."

Birdemic

* Office Chair Humping

Communion

* Dancing Walken

Evil Toons

* David Carradine's Final Moments

Traxx

* "THIS is What I Think of Your Cookies!"

Turkish Star Wars

* Angry Face & Boulder Chop
* Kicks Exploding Boulders

Weng Weng

* Manhandled
* Now I Gotta Infinite Kick You with My Little Feet...
* Jetpack

Miscellaneous

* "leave me alone stop haunting me!!!"


Also, speaking of "Turkish Star Wars"... Did you know that there was a Turkish Star Trek? And that it's a more obvious imitator of its original source material? No, really, they even use the same names. Sample it for yourself...

And, yes, a complete version with English subtitles (not that those would matter) can be found for our viewing pleasure.
