Loads of people going on about Moby Dick at the minute eh


#1

Post can’t be empty


#2

*moby’s


#3

No, not this time


#4

Call me ishmaelby, a carly rae jepsen/Herman melvillle mashup


#5

Quite want this


#6

I like this more than your post that was “*moby’s”


#7

There’s a card game for everything these days eh!


#8

Just click the little heart button under the post


#9

Never heard of it


#10

Way ahead of ya!


#11

“Way ahead of ye!”

Might be a line from Moby Dick, dunno, never read it.


#12

Wait until I tell you about the one that’s a simulation of an intimate encounter between a human and a tentacle alien that I recently received.


#13

I don’t want to hear about that


#14

‘Call me Ishmael, I’m way ahead of ya’ is the opening line I think


#15

Too late, that’s about it.


#16

Remember Robert Duvall’s character in Deep Impact started reading it to the guy who went blind in space? Probably one of those endeavours you regret immediately after starting it.


#17

A good thread idea might be to speculate about the plot and prose of famous books we’ve never read


#18

Reckon former West brom striker Ishmael miller’s agent used to text him during the transfer window saying ‘call me, ishmael’ for a laugh?


#19

It would be good. Someone would suggest Moby Dick and would say “I think it’s about a whale or something”, and I would reply “wrong! It’s about obsession” and three people would smugly like my reply.

Would you watch a film adaptation of Moby Dick but at some point that bit from Free Willy where the whale jumps over the boy happens?
