Entrepreneur Spotlight: Rob Capelluto
Human: Rob Capelluto
The year is 2015.
Rob and I rendezvous, as is standard procedure for this sort of thing. Discussion ensues and we make our way upstairs to find a more secluded location to converse. Rob pauses for a moment as his gaze shifts from the tip of his nose to a window ahead. He mutters, “Sometimes I stand at this window for hours and watch the people in the apartment across the street.”
CS: Rob, could you tell us a little bit about your company and what you do there?
RC: Dubseed. Our company is unique in that people can look at the different layers (stems) artists use to create their songs. Basically, we provide a platform for people to buy these stems.
CS: That’s pretty cool. What’s your favorite toothpaste?
RC: I don’t like toothpaste with fluoride because I’m a conspiracy theorist. I like to use Tom’s. I also filter my water.
CS: What’s your favorite hot dog topping?
RC: What’s that onion stuff on German hot dogs?
CS: Do you mean sauerkraut?
RC: Yeah. I like that.
CS: Tell us what your favorite aspect of yourself is.
RC: My looks, my intelligence. I’m very funny. Wait. Don’t write that down. That’s not my answer.
CS: But this is funny, Rob. What’s your answer?
RC: Probably my good looks.
CS: What’s your favorite flavor of Pepsi: 1995-present?
RC: That is kind of a misleading question. You’re assuming I’m a Pepsi guy. I prefer Coke. Mexican Coke.
Then we played ping-pong.
RC: I feel like Pete Francis.
RC: Yeah, him. My grandma used to watch a lot of tennis.
CS: What’s the coolest thing you’ve ever said to someone, aside from that?
RC: That’s really a tough question. I can’t really think of anything witty. I don’t say cool shit to people. I don’t think I’m enough of a smooth talker. I don’t think…I’m not confident.
CS: If you could be the front man of any band, what band would it be?
RC: Nirvana. I have a dark side to me that not a lot of people know about.
CS: Okay. Last question. You’ve got $6 dollars, a unicycle and the world ends in 45 minutes. What’s your plan?
RC: Ditch the unicycle. Give the $6 to the first person I see and go streaking.
Be on the lookout for Dubseed as they take over the Internet, one stem at a time.
