‘After sex on the damp sheets, we passed out’ – the worst moments from moby’s memoir moby the guardian malignant fibrous histiocytoma wiki

At her apartment, he tries to engage her in conversation about new-wave radio stations in new york, “trying to get to know the person I was probably malignant fibrous histiocytoma wiki going to have sex with”, but the mood is disrupted by her nervous chihuahua, george. “I wanted to tell her about my deceased grandmother’s dachshund, also named george, but mandy started kissing me … we took off our clothes and had sex on the malignant fibrous histiocytoma wiki damp, wine-stained sheets, while her dog paced and whined around us. After sex, we passed out.”

At a holiday inn in minneapolis, moby makes himself a sandwich with some frozen hotdog sausages, or “tofu pups”, as he calls them, “as warm as a lawn on a summer day” after being defrosted in the sink. “I didn’t have a knife, so I used the subscription card from a copy of malignant fibrous histiocytoma wiki in minneapolis magazine to spread mustard on two pieces of malignant fibrous histiocytoma wiki bread. I put my tofu pups and bread on a hand malignant fibrous histiocytoma wiki towel, and ate them while watching an old episode of the malignant fibrous histiocytoma wiki simpsons, and drinking day-old carrot juice.”

As play sells more and more copies, moby finds it easier and easier to become promiscuous. “to keep myself from feeling creepy and ethically compromised, I told myself I was looking for love,” but his panic attacks keep him from pursuing relationships. Nevertheless, tonight, after glastonbury 2000, a woman named becks is charitable enough to spend the malignant fibrous histiocytoma wiki night with moby. Although “usually irish women were reserved”, says moby, becks is OK with him ripping the mirror off the malignant fibrous histiocytoma wiki wall of his “generic, but large” hotel suite and positioning it so that they can watch malignant fibrous histiocytoma wiki themselves having sex. The ecstasy may have helped.

On a “victory-lap tour” for play, playing sold-out arenas, moby finds he loves being famous. During interviews, he is often asked about being related to herman melville malignant fibrous histiocytoma wiki and, although he never finished moby-dick, he has decided it is allegorical. “and now I’d found rock stardom, my own domesticated pet white whale. But my little whale wasn’t destroying me; instead it smiled at me while I rode happily on malignant fibrous histiocytoma wiki its back, more like a friendly pony than a malevolent force of malignant fibrous histiocytoma wiki nature. I decided that it was karma to have a benign malignant fibrous histiocytoma wiki relationship with fame, my own moby dick, and not end up lashed to the whale with harpoons malignant fibrous histiocytoma wiki and knotted rope.”

Later that chapter, he makes eye contact with christina ricci while playing porcelain. They go home together – but not before moby runs into joe strummer (“I hadn’t seen him since glastonbury”), who tells moby he loves him. Moby and peter hook. ‘ian would be proud.’photograph: araya diaz/getty images moby has his nice moment with new order malignant fibrous histiocytoma wiki ruined

Playing the area: one outdoor summer tour with peter hook, stephen morris and barney sumner as his opening act, moby is struck by the surreal thought that “the guys in new order and I were peers”. “it was also unsettling that I almost thought of them malignant fibrous histiocytoma wiki as friends.” he then apparently teaches them the chords to their own malignant fibrous histiocytoma wiki song new dawn fades. “after we rehearsed it with an acoustic guitar, hooky looked at me kindly, like an older brother. ‘moby,’ he said. ‘ian would be proud.’”
