Moby and the sleeping seals at the National Aquarium
At the end of the interview, Moby tossed out this funny little story about Baltimore. Here is what he said:
In 1994, I came down to DJ with Scott Henry and I remember I went to the Aquarium at night. They had the seals and walruses sleeping where you could watch them sleep.
I remember so distinctly, I stood there for about 20 minutes watching all the sea mammals sleep.
They were all having REM dreams. Not dreams of Michael Stipe, but, you know, rapid eye movement dreams ...
I just remember thinking to myself, 'What do seals dream about? Do they dream about conch shells or do they dream about finally getting off their shackles and overthrowing their human overlords?'
I was going to ask Moby exactly what (if any) substance he was on at the time, but, alas, we ran out of time. I'll link to the finished piece, which will hopefully come out in Thursday's paper.
