Who Gives A Shit: Chatroulette?

photo: NYT

Have you people tried this shit?

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, you clearly do not own a computer. But I'll humor you and fill you in anyway: chatroulette is this new online service created 3 mos ago by some Russian 17-year-old, that  allows you to immediately start videochatting with strangers. You basically go to the site, click "play" and BOOM: you're staring at a complete stranger somewhere in the world (and/or a complete stranger's dick). As you can imagine, there is allegedly some pretty freaky deaky shit that goes down on chatrouelette, but also its supposed to be weirdly addictive. If you don't want to chat with whomever pops up (or want to leave the chat at any point during your convo) you can click a button, spin the virtual roulette wheel, and get hooked up with someone else.

Personally, I'm afraid to try chatroulette, but as I continue to read about it EVERYWHERE, my curiosity is growing (sidenote: wouldn't it be cool if you could *just* chat with people in Brooklyn? Then I'd totally be down).

Anyway, fill me in Park Slope: have you spun the chatroulette wheel yet, or wha?

SMACKDOWN: BREEDER v. BALLER [Give Peace A Chance?]

I've been too busy feeling sorry for myself last week to blog, but I guess I'm going to have to wade into the fray on this "we love to hate BREEDERS" fest goin on (thanks, Erica, for that home delivery potline number. It took the edge off.)

To my point... Why can't we all just get along?

I love you single, kid-free and loving it folks. I love you Erica and @KarynMurph, wherever you are (ed. note: she's in THAILAND! Being a BALLER!). I love you, sleep-deprived beset-upon BREEDERS of Park Slope. Yes you, helicopterbreeder and brklynmind. Maybe even Nunzio (ok, not really Nunzio. Though I really want to because I like his name so much). I love robnyc and gogogowanus for their always pitch perfect comments and genuine BALLER dispositions.

THE RESULTS: UNITED METHODIST CHURCH BOOK SALE

Ok, so I just got back from the United Methodist Church book sale (see all the shit I bought above).

A couple of things to note: its totally fucking overcrowded, and you're gonna have to fight an overwhelming compulsion to flee from the moment you arrive. People are either pushy (and have no problemo shoving you straight into the table as they need to jam their fat ass by you into a corner where there's no room for them in the first fucking place) or clueless (and standing there in the worst possible spot they could be blocking 19,000 people as they bounce a cute lil bebe on their hip waiting for their wife to finish picking up her new stash of bodice ripper romance novels). Both are equally annoying. But if you can just resist the urge to run off to 7th Ave Donuts and persevere: its worth it if you can put in the time.

BALLER RAGE

So Denise Albert has some pretty major Mommy Rage issues she's contending with. Her rant on Metro this morning is literally EVERYWHERE (I read about it on Gothamist), and thus far people aren't exactly taking to her shit too kindly (as per u, best stuff is in the comments).

Anyway.

Here's the thing, Denise: I can totally relate to what you're going through! It's not exactly the easiest thing in the world to be a BALLER either, and sometimes I wish people would just, you know, be a little bit more understanding and offer me some special consideration. It's hard out here for a pimp!

So yeah, I decided to rewrite your entire opinion piece from a non-breeder's perspective, and I rully rully hope you like it! I tried to stay mostly true to form, so shitty sentence structure and the like is, of course, still yours!:

Just thought y'all should know.

Looks like the South Slope space (and sister restaurant to Lucali...or brother actually, as that's who owns it) will be opening soon (yay!).
