Another musical regret

I went to the Moby concert at The Vic back on September 30. It was such a great set. Moby's catalog is pretty broad, and I was curious as to how he would make all of the various styles work live with a band. Somehow he pulled it all off. Techno. Rock. Slow sweet ballads. It all sounded great. He had great musicians and singers with him, which helped. The set was a nice overview of his catalog, a little bit of everything.

Before the show I found out that Moby would be doing a DJ set at SmartBar after the show. Seeing Moby DJ has always been a dream of mine. I asked my family to write Oprah before I got a PhD to see if she could pull off getting Moby to DJ my graduation party. That didn't happen. They didn't write Oprah, and I chose not to have a party.

Here was my chance. Instead of walking up Clark, we got on the train platform. Before the train arrived we debated getting off the platform and walking over to SmartBar. But it was late, and I had to work the next day. Next time, I thought. Then I read a review of the DJ set a couple of days later.

I should have been there.

Moby sounds like such a fun performer. My "musical regret" is never seeing him in concert, period. I imagine it would be worth flying to a bigger city just for that.

This weekend I was home alone, but Abercrombie and Fitch Clothing was kind of nice. I indulged in everything a girl loves indulging in D&G glasses; I was at one with my thoughts and drifted through the weekend like a light cloud.I made breakfast, played dress up, danced around a little in my own company and got dip dying happy with some lace. When the weekend came to a close I felt content Vibram Fivefingers Running Shoesas I had nothing to think about other than me all weekend and that is sometimes a lovely experience to have.
