An unlikely star (and cool for that reason) at that point, but at this point, has he become the musical Crocodile Hunter, another unlikely and delightful star become (to me at least) a tiresome self-promotion machine?

Not to sound like "the rock star is always better when no one knows who they are," but I can't help but think that at that point of his carreer, when he was Sherman breaking out his beats in underground raves, and sweetly naive at your forum, he was at his best. And now that he's become a savvy little media whore mugging to the camera, he's less interesting.

I guess the bottom line is that if he can produce fantastic music, that speaks for itself and none of this image stuff matters. However, if his fame surpasses the quality of his current musical output, then he has become the crocodile hunter, and I change the channel.

I used to love the crocodile hunter!

Not that it matters,

But wtf does Eminem have it out so bad for Moby? Like Brittanylips said, he's kind of annoying in his omnipresent contrived poses, but that's not enough to motivate me to do anything stupid, like allegedly hire up some thugs to go kick his ass at an autograph signing....

I don't like Eminem's music, but in reading some of his lyrics, i've come across the notion that he's just one angry and disturbed little man.

Phaeton,

But that's the beauty of Eminem.

An angry and disturbed little man. What you see is what you get. A self-deprecating rather than self-aggrandizing rapper. In rap, that's innovative with Eminem.

So all the angry disturbed little men of the world (otherwise known as adolescents) relate to that and buy his record.

On the other, as you nailed it with the perfect word, Moby has become "contrived."

Are you suggesting we're jealous of Moby?

Just got back from a Moby show - was recorded for TV - Moby did an acoustic show - himself and guitarist on acoustic guitar plus two female vocalists. All sitting on stools.

They were excellent - even played a few covers (Ring of Fire, Rebel Yell (lounge jazz version) and Take a walk on the wildside).

Highly recomended - and Moby came across as a thoughtful, humourous, generally good guy

Regardless of how you think he looks, he sure picks some excellent looking backing vocalists. Entirely because they have the best voice for the music, I'm sure....


Thanks, nursers. I'll look to catch the show when they broadcast it.

I've seen him around in NYC from time to time. Never wanted to approach him, though. Seems like a nice fella. I could have dinner and a chat with him, but not if I was ordering the food. It'll take forever and a day to turn me into a vegan, though my own diet is pro-vegetable, with a side order of tiny bits of fishie, and meats.

It could be worse....Blender magazine was on a kick where they posted that joker's picture somewhere in the mag for months on end...it was like a running joke...

...the catch?

It was a picture of him with nothing on but a sock on his pecker!

So consider yourself lucky. \:D

What instrument does Moby actually play? For some reason I thought he was a synth guy.

One of the most bizarre and surreal things I've ever seen was Moby on the VH1 show 'Top 100 Metal Bands' (or something like that) describing how much he loves the Motley Crue record Shout at the Devil.

As far as I know, Moby is a multi-instrumentalist. I saw Moby on tv (might have been Leno or Letterman) and he was performing "South Side" singing and playing electric guitar.

Don't mean to be hatin' on Moby but that guitar solo on 'South Side' is absolutley horrible. Its just a bunch of tired old boring licks and the last part is so out of tune its painful. Yuck.

It's practically "Phil Collins-esque".

I dunno, I think he looks like a dentist. You gotta work hard against nature when you have something like that going for you, if you wanna be a star.

Personally I think its cool that the guy looks like a nerd and is such a hit or success in the music industry. If anything, it should give most of us here (myself excluded \:D ) some hope that it is not always about looks...
