Is Chatroulette, the latest and greatest watering hole in cyberspace, now filling the shoes of Atlantic, Capitol, and Sony Music?
Dorothy … you’re a long way from masturbating 40-year-olds:
The band announced the album’s imminent release yesterday via the deeply sketchy internet chat service Chatroulette. Supposedly first single “Latin America” is streaming on Chatroulette today, if you can find it. When I tried just now, the service randomly paired me up with some dude jerking off. I seriously almost barfed. So be prepared for that to happen if you really need to hear the song.
Call me Andy Rooney, but I also curmudgeonly thought Twitter would be a flash in the pan. But now, aside from knowing what Jay-Z eats for breakfast, journalists “twit” breaking news in 150-word segments. Could Chatroulette be destined for a greater role on the interwebs?
It may not supplant Columbia Records, but Chatroulette sure feels like it’s here to stay. The excitement of random encounters, once the domain of speed dating and tacky bars, has found its niche in the ***FUTURE***.
