Good Friday

moby writes:

“This weekend in acapulco, i’ll be dj’ing, not playing live. just want to make that clear. same thing is true in miami. at some point in the next few months i might play live again, but for now i’m happy to just be a bald beer drinking dj.”

For some, today is Good, Holy or Great Friday- the day to remember Christ dying on the cross. Today is the day that the Roman Catholic Church has designated the anniversary of the Passion and Crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The date of Good Friday changes every year. But I don’t know how they pick the date. Anyway, I stopped at St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Cathedral in Bucharest. There were long lines to the confessionals.

moby and me: last night, austin, democrats and degenerates

March 16, 2008

moby is writing a lot more these days. His new album, Last Night, is about to be released for sale. Several singles from Last Night are out there on the internet. Here’s some links…

Check out the moby singles samples here, here, here or here.

Ok, I feel bad that I haven’t written to moby in two weeks. I’m sorry, dude. Iarta-ma.

I’ve been a little busy.

I’m trying to work out something interesting for the Yahoo! advertising guy in Romania. His name is Mihai Fanache. Despite Mr. Fanache’s ADHD, he rocks for a 20-something entrepreneur. With the support of the mysterious Orlando Nicoara, he came a long way from being just another talented, hardcore young guy out of Targoviste.

Last Night

Dude, do you feel irreversibly contaminated by your celebrity life?

I continue to ponder your interview statement… that celebrity is a “corrosive” institution?

What’s it like… not to be anchored to ordinary reality with a 9-5 job?

What’s it like… not have to put up with people you don’t like, eight hours Monday through Friday?

Do you lose basic social skills and sociable perspective?

For example, does your contempt for nuissiants (nuisances and insouciants) get so out of hand (for lack of having to interact with them)… so much so that you just fade them into the background noise?

Did you get crunk with the new dawgs at the disco, last night?

Perhaps, this is asking too much.

moby and me: Bucharest and Chestii

Five cent tour for Patsaks:

Find out what a self-proclaimed blog star (me) has to say to an actual rock star (moby). See the official video for Alice, a track from the soon to be released album, Last Night.

“… san francisco, as i’ve written about before, is such an odd place. it’s beautiful and progressive and affluent, but it also has more hookers and drug dealers per sq km. than any city in the western world…”

I reply:

Dude… you need to get out more.

It’s obvious to me that you spend too much time in the clubs- especially if you think every woman on the street is a hooker. Most likely, they all just look like hookers.

Anyway, can we call them, working girls, instead of hookers? It seems to me that as long as we remember that they are persons, there can be hope for the rehabilitation of their dignity and destiny as persons.

Somehow, we also need to rehabilitate your concept of the western world. It’s more than NYC and LA. Most see it going as far as the African and Asian continents. Of course, the Russians are very offended by this kind of NATO-oriented talk. Generally speaking, Russians are somehow also western- if in their own mean-spirited way.

If you don’t believe me, ask Dmitry Medvedev.

Since you don’t drive, I know that you sometimes get stuck in that feeling that the world begins and ends in NYC with a few frontier posts out there in the badlands (LA, SF, London, Paris, etc).

Have you been to Bucharest?

Bucharest is out there… on the edge of the Western world. You will even find a lot of people here that can speak English. A bit of advice – avoid the Romanian girls on Match.com, Yahoo Personals, High5, etc.
