Review Summary: Internet conversational techniques perplex me.

Omegle.com is a site which connects you to a random stranger so you can chat with them anonymously. Of course, this is where all hipsters go to get their latest news on Bill Callahan. This reviewer, unable to get a hold of his new album, Sometimes I Wish We Were an Eagle, came to Omegle to get some help.

Attempt 1:

You: What do you think of Bill Callahan’s new album, Sometimes I Wish We Were an Eagle?
Stranger: hhhhhhhhhhhh ><
Your conversational partner has disconnected.

Attempt 2:

You: What do you think of Bill Callahan’s new album, Sometimes I Wish We Were an Eagle?
Stranger: i dont wanna know
Stranger: or hear

Attempt 3:

You: What do you think of Bill Callahan’s new album, Sometimes I Wish We Were an Eagle?
Stranger: hello
Your conversational partner has disconnected.

This does not seem to be working. Let’s try a different approach. I hear Pitchfork-readers have a lot to say about Bill Callahan.

Attempt 4:

You: Do you read Pitchfork?
Your conversational partner has disconnected.

Attempt 5:

You: Do you read Pitchfork?
Stranger: You: zoom zoom zoom?
Your conversational partner has disconnected.

Goddammit. Omegle is totally letting me down here.

Attempt 6:

You: So, what kind of music are you into? Bill Callahan?
Stranger: hey
Stranger: asl
Your conversational partner has disconnected.

This was the last straw. It was time for all or nothing.

Attempt 7:

You: IF YOU DON’T LISTEN TO BILL CALLAHAN I’M GOING TO COME TO YOUR HOUSE AND RIP YOUR JUGULAR OUT.
Your conversational partner has disconnected.

Omegle, you disappoint me.
