@jnonfiction You don't want to know.

Or, you don't want your kids to know.

Or, click the news story link and hear our local anchor talk about it.

What SNES games do you have?? Why not just get 'em on the VC?

CLAME for a great video from Vimeo explaining Chat Roulette.

Lil bit of language that is questionable but no bad visuals.

Also, you're all invited to my CHAT ROULETTE PARTY, which apparently I'll be throwing sometime VERY SOON.

If Chatroulette is anything like Tosh.0 made it out to be, I'll be staying far, far away.

Yes! I think I can get #Birmingham together for a chat roulette party. Also, this is hilarious that you are being interviewed as a "charroulette fan". Ha! Love it.

im sorry man, never could get into chat roulette. too much naked man crotch for my taste.

shularbrau says:
I did not know what chat roulette was. I think from the @yourfavorite video and the wiki article, I understand.

I'm sure you're not in the 14% perverts. :)

Chinese Wildman says:
ChatRoulette is great if you feel like you haven't seen another man's balls in a while.
Posted: Feb 26th, 2010 - 7:30am -
Furricane says:
heh, watch out for that chatroulette. It's a gamble.

There's a reason they call it roulette.

Pip says:
@davidw I have my faves on the VC, but there's nothing quite like playing a game on the original system. Just feels better. I don't remember which games those are; I'll check when I get home.

wowzerz!

Pip says:
@kidstatic In the spirit of full disclosure, I only actually checked it out once when @Laura showed it to me the day before that interview. I was the only person in BestBuy who'd heard of it, so I got interviewed. I count that as a win.

@shularbrau I wish I wasn't.
Posted: Feb 26th, 2010 - 7:33am -
Pip says:
@letranger I always wondered what my descriptor would be if I was interviewed on the news. Kind of excited/shamed that it turned out to be "ChatRoulette Fan." I was hoping for "Maven, Bon Vivant."

Yogi Beard says:
Chat Roulette at a party is actually a really cool idea.

Flotsam & Beardsam says:
Hilarious! I'd trust a dude with that kind of beard to tell me what I should be doing with my free time.

I'm not so sure I'd trust that lady to tell me anything.

oh man, Chat Roulette is crazy- this is awesome. hahahaha

The main question is, "What the hell were you doing in Best Buy, Cripps?!"

This is so epic.

Brilliant, king fave.

And @letranger I'm down for that chat roulette party.

Army of Whiskers says:
@pip were you the x-rated chatter that made her gasp and immediately hit 'Next'?
Posted: Feb 26th, 2010 - 7:46am -
wondermade says:
I count this as a win too. But why head to Bestbuy looking for Chatroulette fans? Seems more like an Apple crowd thing.
Posted: Feb 26th, 2010 - 7:51am -
mattyc says:
dude... that's crazy. I've never heard of this before.
Posted: Feb 26th, 2010 - 7:52am -
Pip says:
@gfmorris Shopping for (and not finding) the new Joanna Newsom. So I got Yeasayer instead. It was lunchtime, so I don't think Vertical House was open!

@armyofwhiskers I WISH.

revgoomba says:
This is too awesome! I only went on Chatroulette once and was connected with an erect boaby... I disconnect before he could finish one stroke. You're a fan of this?

Laura says:
@gfmorris He was at Best Buy in the middle of a workday! Also, he came home that day with a bag from the Gap. I'm convinced he doesn't really have a job and he just spends all day out on the town shopping and talking to news ladies about pervy websites.

gfmorris says:
@laura Well, @pip *is* a civil servant. Everyone knows that us contractors are the people who do the real work. ;)

Pip says:
@Davis Babel is different than I though it would be. Only watched it once when it came out; I'll rewatch now that it's at my house again.

@Davis It's Animal Crossing, THE BEST GAME EVER. Actually it's okay.

@Davis I've never used Wiispeak.

@Davis Thanks.

I love that you were labeled as a "chatroulette fan" in this. You may have set beard acceptance back some for that. But it's cool. Nice move shady bearded internet chat guy. hahahaha

Ula O cealleigh says:
@pip !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

it was GREAT to see & hear you talk/speak!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You seem like a really nice guy!!! I like your accent it isnt really that strong american its quite mild!!!! Awww you are cool!!!! LOL!!!

Wow id love to talk to all the other beards on there & it would be a great way to get to know everyone better and what they are like in person!!!!

Also as for the dating side of it.. the problem with regular online dating is that you cant get the character across from a profile, description or hobby list.. used correctly & maturely that chat thing would be GREAT way to see if people get on/like eachother before making the effort/time to go meet up after just typing exchanges & photos.

I can see the margin for abuse but it does give a lot of benefits over regular dating sites.

Anyways!! really enjoyed that & the presenter was pretty kewl too!! haha.

Thanks @pip !! KINGED!!

ChatRoullette made the news?! Wow… Slow news day is slow. And weird.

Your beard is amazing on TV. Mind boggling! I don't recall it looking so vibrant.

Dirty Pirate says:
think the camera added some girth to that beard.

Just Jamey says:
Obviously they picked you because of the beard.

Davis says:
@pip - animal crossing is the worst/best game ever created. it has a way of turning normal, peaceful households into obsessive compulsive machines who can only think about furniture arrangement, catching fish, and "when that merchant guy is in town."

i should know: it destroyed the summer of 2004 for me almost completely. i've stayed away from the wii version because i was afraid of it.

nutty! i got my eye on you

Laura says:
@Davis If you ever decide to get back into Animal Crossing, LET ME KNOW. If you have Wii Speak and you visit someone else's town who also has Wii Speak it is like you are sitting in each other's living rooms. Also, I got the fruit hookup.
