I was going to comment on Moby's recent jocular wish to have homosexual children, but I realized that a Windows Flatulent Error saved my ass from verbally over-beating a confusing dead horse.
Instead, I'll leave it at this.
Moby is a space alien.
Or . . .
Maybe, Moby is the boy in the bubble.
The article, to me, suggests that he is slowly becoming the left-wing version of Paris Hilton.
Destination: Meaningless Void.
Everyone digs Moby. And that's fine. The guy's made memorable music in the past, but yeah, he's definitely losing his meaning and heart it seems.

My mood somewhat begins with an F-Word.
I can't stop writing the word "fuck" a lot tonight.
I kind of liked those idealistic jacket manifestos back in the day . . . I was an impressionable young teenager, and some of the stuff made sense.
Somewhere from that time about 15 years ago, his songs started making the soundtracks in major Hollywood productions like Heat.
He enlarged his internet presence quite a bit.
He had a pretty good few days on his lil' blog when the fundamentalists started ramming planes into his backyard.
I used to dig him, a lot, but that was a looooooooong time ago.
Naturally, he remains an interest in my userinfo.
It's almost like Michael Jackson.
You can't deny the earlier stuff.

Re: My mood somewhat begins with an F-Word.
Nothing tops "Thriller", so, you're right.
well, it's not really fair to just say something like that without giving some reason why he's such a "space alien" or "the left-wing version of Paris Hilton".
If you expressed a jovial desire to have homosexual children, and you were a celebrity, what would you think the outcome of that would be?
To me, it was a joke he tried to make, and it fell flat on funny.
I think that if he'd STFU about the right-wing and un-bury his concern in politics, maybe he'd be a lot better for it.
no, i mean what's so wrong to you about what he said? why do you take so much objection to it?
It's a joke that misfired.
He's a gay rights advocate, but he's not doing anyone a favor by that interview.
To me, the comments are total bullshit.
"ok, normally i don't respond to the reactionary slander that some people spew on moby.com, but the 'moby wants to turn his child gay' is just too tempting and i have to respond.
first off: i don't have any children.
secondly: if i had children i would want them to be happy, regardless of their sexual orientation.
if they were heterosexual i'd want them to be happy and straight. if they were gay i'd want them to be happy and gay.
i would want my children to be proud of who they were regardless of their orientation and how socially acceptable it might or might not be.
parents should love and support their children, case closed. how much needless hurt and pain has been created by parents and family members not accepting a child's sexual orientation? far too much."
Yeah, now that's more like it.
It's a far cry from his shitty joke, though . . . that's making it a bit trivial.
I think this is what should have been said.
Moby's not much of a jokester, though.

I think our military at least took the time to find out about what's goin' down:Affection in Public: In most Arab countries, holding hands, kissing, walking arm-in-arm, and even flirting between men and women in public (even between husband and wife), is strictly TABOO! In Bahrain such behavior generally results in "dirty looks" from passersby. In some countries within this theater of operations, such behavior can result in arrest and imprisonment.
Conversely, holding hands, kissing, and walking arm-in-arm, between Arab men, is considered perfectly acceptable behavior. While there may be "something more" to it, such activities are generally little more than signs of friendship (much as the kiss on the cheek in France.)
