moby and me: coincidence and melancholy

March 2, 2008

Five cent tour for Patsaks:

Find out what a self-proclaimed blog star (me) has to say to an actual rock star (moby) in this surreal, ongoing fictitious relationship. And just because moby is an actual myspace friend, this is not cause for me or you (the reader) to think these conversations are anything more than fictitious.

“I’ve made tons of bad decisions and done tons of things I regret. But it’s an interesting process.”

Dave Simpson interviews moby

Congratulations on your recent interview. I found your answers to Dave Simpson’s questions… honest. Maybe, they were. Maybe, they weren’t. Dude, I’m just telling you how your answers struck me.

Simpson’s questions, I’m guessing, were some kind of scuffy clown shoes. Neither clever nor intrusive enough to reveal something profound and touching. I got the impression that the interview was really just a friendly chat, you shooting the frell while he took too many notes – maybe you were tired, slightly bored – but not bored enough to drop your usual fistful of expletives to stir things up.

Or k-mo the conversation.

What the frell is up with Simpson and the word, wistful? He uses it four times. Wistful isn’t very manly, masculine or forceful. It does not embody anything that relates to a will to action, decision and determination OR self-esteem for that matter. But these manly things are the things that are the spirit in a strong beat or great music.

Perhaps, reflective would have been a better word choice. Because each time that I saw wistful in the text, it struck me as odd- maybe even emasculating.

Were you so pensive?
