Thank you for voting in my original blog post about Summer Snark. The winning date is Saturday, August 15th and the film we shall Tweet snark about is “Real Genius” (1985.)

Before he was Iceman, Jim Morrison or Batman, Val Kilmer played Chris Knight, the super smart big man on campus at Pacific Tech in “Real Genius.” Described by IMDb.com as, “Teenage geniuses deal with their abilities while developing a laser.” It’s quirky and funny in that 80s comedy sort of way.

How to live-Tweet a movie, the Librarians (and Friends) way:

1. Have “Real Genius” (1985) queued up and ready to go. Make sure you are past any previews or commercials.

2. Hit “play” at exactly at 3:00 pm EDT on Saturday, August 15, 2015.
(That’s 8:00 pm BST for our UK friends.  What time is that where you are? http://time.is/compare)

3.  Use hashtag #liblaser (As in, the laser which is the whole plot point of the movie. Not a spoiler, it’s in the tagline.) for all “Librarians & Friends Live-Tweeting a Movie” remarks for this specific movie.

4. Keep your Tweets clean, don’t be a jerk, etc, etc, etc.

5. Make sure you have popcorn with you while you watch. No spoilers. Just have popcorn. Trust me.
