Paul was the first person in the world to watch this video of a rotating truck

On the end-of-the-month edition of the Waiting Room, we discussed how mallsoft was slowly becoming the new vaporwave, as the genuine aesthetics of the music of abandoned malls seems to be more appealing than the tongue-in-cheek critique of commercialism with a cyberpunk theme. What could be more representational of such a critique than an abandoned mall, the very definition of crumbling capitalism? What about the music drives people to it? Could it be that the music really only plays in the stores, prompting you to buy and begging you not to leave? Go to your nearest mall and listen to the music that they play. Why are they playing it? Where's the Muzak I was promised? 
 
Also coming to our attention is the website petittube.com, which sounds like a website you probably wouldn't want to click on at work. It is actually a single-serving site that combs the YouTube depths and finds videos that have zero views, making you the very first person to see that video. We experienced it and found a video of a car with no sound. Check it out right here. If you find something remotely vaporwave, congratulations. You've experienced art that no one has seen before, almost like discovering a cave for the first time, or maybe walking into a condemned mall that hasn't seen human contact in several years. The Muzak still buzzes in the background, an eerie soundtrack as you grab all the coins you can grab with your tiny hands from the dried up water fountain. After all, there might be some Crystal Pepsi still left in there. 
 
Oh, and Peter made this.
