Remember the website Omegle? Yes that one where you can get paired up with random strangers from all around the world. I decided to go on there for the first time ever today. I’d seen plenty of videos and screenshots of conversations online over the years but for some odd reason, I never actually thought about jumping on the bandwagon myself. Until today of course. I exclusively stayed on the text chat side of things(didn’t wanna see any weird stuff obviously) and you know what I had a real blast. I may even do this again sometime. 😀
Here are some of the highlights from that.
For their “What would you like to talk about” box I filled in Kdramas, Kpop, and Music. Since that way the site would hopefully pair me up with people who I would have an easier time talking to.
Although hold up! Before I get to that actually. I first tried out their spy (question) mode. If you don’t know what that is, basically it’s the same as getting paired up with a random stranger except you also get a question that somebody else asked. I suppose this is to help break the ice and to give people something to actually talk about. In my case though I chose to be the person who asked the questions. This means I didn’t participate in the discussions themselves but I could see the other two people’s back and forth. And can you guess the types of questions I asked…. Yup they were Kpop related. 😛
First, the most obvious I had to ask…
I only asked this question a handful of times and was surprised by how many random people seemed to at least have heard of them. Sure many of the people who replied didn’t actually listen to them but hey they knew them regardless. It means they are slowly getting into the public’s eye. lol Next time I may wanna ask this question more.
Next I tried to open it up. Instead of narrowing it to just BTS, I asked if people had heard of Kpop as a whole, if they could name any artists, and if they knew anything in general. These were some of the highlights for that
That last one was interesting because they didn’t know about Kpop really but they at least kept their cool and weren’t negative about it. Also I thought it was fun seeing them realize they are from around the same parts of the world. It was kinda heart warming in a way.
And lastly as a joke, I couldn’t resist and had to ask this. All you ARMYs should be able to recognize the question immediately. 😆What’s funnier tho has gotta be that response… gargligush, really? lol
BTW it should be ok to share this here right?
Then to close this out here are some of the chats were I finally tried my luck and interacted with people.
First was this guy. Apparently he is a rapper and has some tracks on Soundcloud. I looked him up and he ain’t bad. Really makes me wish he hadn’t disconnected so soon. Woulda been cool to ask him some questions about his music. Like the dude has some good flow and he’s got some good production values behind him. In fact what’s amazing is that according to his Instagram he is an artist, producer and engineer too.
So yeah here is the most recent track I could find on his Soundcloud
Then here are a few more chats:
…and that’s the end for tonight. Sadly there where way more chats that I didn’t save that I shoulda, but the thing is that it wasn’t until towards the end that I thought it would be interesting to share them. Meaning I left of a lot of what I thought were really good ones. Oh well, I’ll try to post some more chats in the future because it really was fun even though there were a lot of early disconnects and a lot were short.
If you ever go or have gone on Omegle let me know and feel free to share some chat stories while you’re at it.
P.S. you may have noticed me mention my name is Mike in one of these. That is obviously not my real name, it’s Miguel like I have mentioned before. However it is one of my many nicknames. Which if you are curious, I’d be glad to share them with you. 🙂 They are Mike, Michael, Michael Angelo, and Miggy. Almost nobody ever calls me Miguel. lol
