Dumb things over which I get all worked up

Via GOPINION, I found this post about Moby’s newfound respect for Eminem because of the latter’s anti-Bush song, ‘Mosh’. For those that don’t know, the two men had a very public verbal brawl. Eminem embarrassed Moby in multiple ways, including a mention in one of his songs calling Moby a ‘bald headed fag’, ‘old’ and describing Moby’s music style as ‘over’. Moby, wildly outmatched in every possible way including bankroll, talent, fame, brains and size, backed down and announced randomly at an Awards Show that he had ‘no problem with Eminem’.

This irks me so much. Do you mind if I use foul language to describe it? If you do, don’t click on.

It’s best not to get worked up over the stupid political opinions of actors and musicians. I actually like Moby’s (and Eminem’s) music, and just ignore their ignorant political rants.
On the other hand, I also admire Maggie Gyllenhaal’s work as a porn star, but her anti-American and pro-terrorist statements are so offensive that I won’t support her work anymore, no matter how many unnatural acts she performs in it.

HAhahaha that was too funny. But I don’t think moby cares about eminem. I think he sees him just as an adolescent potty mouth. And is techno dead in the US?

A big yawn to both of them.

I doubt Eminem got enough love from his Daddy, either. And even less love from his Mommy, that’s for sure.
Of course people listen to techno. There are people like Aphex Twin who play techno, and who make Eminem look dumb and talentless in comparison. I think Eminem has more personality than Moby, and Moby suffers from a lot more stupid ideas in his head, but I find them both boring and predictable. I read somewhere that Eminem is thinking of ending performing and switching to producing, which I think would be a smart move.

Eminem producing. Please God no. The last thing we need is more of the ultra-irritating, tintinitus (sp)- inducing stylings of “Wanksta” inflicted on the populace. Will the next song he produces use a dentist-drill sample?

Greatness. F Moby.
