Moby and Eminem both stink, lets kill :-)
2002-09-07 10:23:53 PM  
Moby seems like a cool guy. I hate M&M with a passion.
2002-09-07 10:24:26 PM  
When does eminem respond to my threats?
2002-09-07 10:26:48 PM  
Isn't it time someone biatch-slapped that attractive and successful Caucasian-American M&M anyway?
I think his 15 minutes are up.

''I only wish Eminem could relax and enjoy all he has: his unique talent, and his smooth white hair, which brings to mind a beagle's nutsack. He should lighten up... I mean, my mom was a biatch too, but I don't go writing songs about it.''

Best. Triumph the Insult Comic Dog comment. Ever.

I saw Triumph's response on Comedy Central. Much funnier than he was at the VMA's. They also showed his greeting of guests on the red carpet. Jack White french-kissing Triumph is one of the weirdest things I've seen on non-public access TV.

eminem is a hateful bastard. the end
2002-09-07 10:32:15 PM  
Hey, I dug how Moby at the Grammys, the year The Marshall Mathers LP got nominated for the boatload of awards it did, said his actual opinion about Eminem's work, how hateful and wrathful it was to everyone but white, straight males. Where everyone else was seen to be gritting their teeth and saying, "Oh, it's a wonderful expression of free speech," Moby spoke what he felt. And now Eminem has a grudge against him, how sweet. Also, "Natural Blues" was also a cool song. At least Moby could laugh at himself while getting dissed by a puppet dog for 30 seconds. Someone else also demanded Triumph not speak to them while it was in their presence. You know who it was? Kathie Lee Gifford, while they were both on Hollywood Squares. Eminem, you're no better than Kathie Lee Gifford, for Christ's sake. Grow up.

A prediction: Summer of 2008, Moby vs. Eminem on Fox's Celebrity Boxing.
2002-09-07 10:33:45 PM  
"Actually, Triumph was fine, too. In a statement on his website, the 'Late Night With Conan O'Brien' regular says he was unharmed, and adds, 'I only wish Eminem could relax and enjoy all he has: his unique talent, and his smooth white hair, which brings to mind a beagle's nutsack. He should lighten up... I mean, my mom was a biatch too, but I don't go writing songs about it.'"

Best feud ever!

Plus it is funny that Moby started it. Also it is unlikely that anyone who has hugged Elton John is a homophobe.
2002-09-07 10:34:45 PM  
Eminem perfectly encapsulated his reason for fame in one of his own songs:

"Will Smith doesn't have to curse to sell records, but I do"

Eminem has to talk shiat and offend people because that's how he stays in the public eye to make money. And people like that don't last forever... It's just a matter of time until his Behind the Music is ready.

Moby may not sell as many records, but he makes a positively STUPID amount of money from sellings his songs for advertisements... and he seems to have a pretty healthy sense of humor. He'll probably be around for a while.
2002-09-07 10:36:29 PM  
I don't care what anybody says about him, Moby is an incredibly cool guy. Anyone who can be photographed lying under dozens of naked women (in a replication of the Electric Ladyland insert thingy, as seen in a previous fark link) and be too enthralled by his computer magazine to notice is cool by my standards. When Eminem made fun of him in one of his crappy songs, Moby responded by wearing an "I (heart) Eminem" t-shirt on SNL. Tell me that that isn't a perfect way of dealing with the situation.
2002-09-07 10:36:53 PM  
Moby Rocks!
2002-09-07 10:37:10 PM  

"I mean, my mom was a biatch too, but I don't go writing songs about it."

2002-09-07 10:38:11 PM  
Moby is the result of an accidental conception between a militant feminist lesbian and an urban hipster fag. He carries the traits of both.

Except I would give him a pat on the back for one specific thing he said: "He should lighten up... I mean, my mom was a biatch too, but I don't go writing songs about it."

True that, Moby. True that.

I love this picture.

If Eminem isn't the poster-boy for repressed homosexuality, I dunno who is. His hatred of gays is just self-loathing. C'mon outta the closet, Marshall. We won't judge.
2002-09-07 10:39:19 PM  
time to throw myself upon the tender mercy of farkers. what the heck are: "feh" and "meh" and any other new hotness l337 things?
2002-09-07 10:39:43 PM  
My Mom was a Bouncer
2002-09-07 10:39:48 PM  
Eddie, didn't exactly pay close attention to the article did we?
2002-09-07 10:40:16 PM  
Eminem and Moby have a lot in common. They are both attention whores who have ridiculously overinflated egos and think they are better than everyone else.
2002-09-07 10:40:42 PM  
Damn, that's a lot of farking censorship. Let's see,

f-- => fag

bl-- => blow

36-year-old bald-headed => ????

And what's all this feh? Nobody I know says feh.
2002-09-07 10:40:42 PM  

very true.

I have a feeling he loves the cock


Moby farked Natalie Portman
2002-09-07 10:40:45 PM  
Gabbo is Fabbo: That's a fruity, un-confrontational, no-balls way to deal with the situation, yes. It's not even funny. It's just "Haha, I'm being ironic or something, look at how I claim the high ground". Basically, Moby is a woman.

Eminem's a prick, but Moby should be a man and just push him over.
2002-09-07 10:42:06 PM  
i thought "meh" was the in word! next your gonna see "beh", "geh", "deh", "zeh", and "heh". oh wait, heh is already one of em
2002-09-07 10:42:13 PM  
I think it's really more of a "meh" actualy.
2002-09-07 10:42:15 PM  
Whaddaya know, Moby's getting some support on Fark. I think he can get a little annoying, but Play was a good album, especially if you stopped it after the eleventh song. Also, I think(no proof) that he said he supported Eminem's right to say what he wanted, even though he found it repugnant.

And I haven't listened to his albums, but Eminem is a wimp for not talking to Triumph, and "Without Me" is one of the most annoying songs of the year.
2002-09-07 10:42:25 PM  
Eminem won't pick on any other rappers, which is a shame. We need a Biggie/Tupac sequel.
2002-09-07 10:42:42 PM  
I agree with what Gabbo said, and thought it was well said.
2002-09-07 10:42:47 PM  
EddieCochran....did you even read the article?

2002-09-07 10:42:58 PM  
Jakal: More than you did.
2002-09-07 10:43:35 PM  

I invented "heh"
2002-09-07 10:43:41 PM  
i actually say meh, feh, bah, and alot of the l33t terms in school, its funny, only my friends know what we are talking about sometimes =D
2002-09-07 10:43:46 PM  
Eddie, the word is non-confrontational. I have nothing more to say.
2002-09-07 10:44:53 PM  
Shiat, I can see the boxing match now. Two scrawny white guys (at least one who admits he is white), in some slap fest. I dont like techno. I hate rap. I hate white rappers with a passion. I can understand Moby and his type of music and why it has a following. I cannot understand M+M and his music, not to mention all the little white boys with baggy pants that listen to it. "yo what up my ni88as!" Ugg. Dammit. why didnt that die off with Vanilla Ice? Now we gotta deal with stuff like Icy Hot Stuntas. bleeeeeeck.
2002-09-07 10:45:13 PM  
That was Triumph with the biatch remark, not Moby.
2002-09-07 10:46:42 PM  
I used to find Eminem mildly entertaining, in a "train wreck" sort of way. He was funny, and his extreme style came across the same way Marilyn Manson used to -- shocking for the sake of showmanship.

Now, I'm not so sure. This whole thing just turned me off of him.

I enjoy Moby. Yeah, yeah, "Play" is better than "18", yadda yadda...but it's still great stuff. His videos show that he doesn't take himself too seriously ("South Side", and the "alternative" version of "Bodyrock" are prime examples.) Plus, the guy seems to actually *enjoy* his fans and his success.

Not that anyone gives a rat's ass what I think...but hell, I haven't posted in a while.
2002-09-07 10:47:09 PM  
i believe "feh" is yiddish for, uh, something. "who cares" seems to be the apparent translation for it.

i think moby is cool too, btw. his latest album kinda blew but "Play" was really quite a landmark album as far as it was able to bring electronic music into the mainstream. EddieCochran apparently doesn't like him much, but only because he doesn't resort to farking all-out war against someone who doesn't deserve that much attention.

c'mon EddieCochran, who needs a hug??
2002-09-07 10:48:31 PM  
Oops. Moby didn't say that. Foot in mouth.

Well I guess Moby is still the little biatch he's always been, then.
2002-09-07 10:51:15 PM  
i believe "feh" is yiddish for, uh, something. "who cares" seems to be the apparent translation for it.

Oh great, now everyone knows I'm not Jewsish.
2002-09-07 10:51:39 PM  
"heh", i just parked my car in the garage right now, and eminem was playing on the radio, so i changed it :D

First thing I found on a Google Image Search for FEH
2002-09-07 10:53:33 PM  
Oh great, now everyone knows I'm not Jewsish.

Yeah, now I hate you. fark off, biatch.
2002-09-07 10:53:45 PM  
That Eminem's a real tough guy to be picking on Moby. Talk about hard-core.
2002-09-07 10:53:50 PM  

Feh = farking empty hole. People say it when they hear something, and think that hearing it was a complete waste of time.

Meh = Monkey endorphin hullabaloo: It means that whatever was just said would only be interesting (be made a hullaballo out of) if someone were hopped up on monkey endorphins.
2002-09-07 10:55:16 PM  
Hey BigHonky, when did Moby bang Natalie Portman?
2002-09-07 10:56:15 PM  
feh meh and bah are multipurpose words, use them as you like =D
2002-09-07 10:56:22 PM  
Sorry, to AOL here, but...

I mean, my mom was a biatch too, but I don't go writing songs about it.

Best. Triumph. Comment. Ever.
2002-09-07 10:57:32 PM  
Does anybody notice Eminem always has a formula of picking on three or so celebrities on the first hit of each album, which all the sheep in the Entertainment media have to dedicate entire pieces, articles, etc. to the celebrities reaction. Are we expected to want to buy more of his stuff to hear this one lyric when he has three songs in rotation at once and about a third of all the radio space and we're constantly subjected to his trash?
