Moby's Releases Memoir And It Includes An X-Rated Donald Trump Story
The book, titled Porcelain, hits stores today and you might even be able to catch him at your local bookshop as he heads out on a promotional tour. Moby, who's best known for his folk-sampling masterpiece, Go, has a reputation for clean-living. He's a famous animal rights campaigner, a vegan, tee-total and at one point was a born-again christian. However in Porcelain he pulls back the curtain and details his life as a hard-partying DJ in NYC. Sex, drugs and afterparties feature prominently. Apparently there's even an anecdote about 'a friend' rubbing his willy on an oblivious Donald Trump at a fundraiser.
London Night Tube Finally Gets Start Date
The new London Mayor gained ground in his claim to be "London's best mayor for nightlife" as just a few weeks into office, he's managed to confirm a commencement date for the long-delayed Night Tube. The Central and Victoria lines will run throughout the night from 19th August. While the Picadilly, Jubilee and Northern lines will follow "in Autumn".
Chocolate Is Apparently The Next Big Thing In Party Drugs
Just as the Government implemented sweeping bans on legal highs, a hip new party drug has apparently emerged to fill the void. Cacao - or chocolate, basically - is the supposedly hot new substance in party drug capital, Berlin. Cacao powder reportedly releases serotonin and stimulates the movement of endorphins and has found particular interest in a party called Lucid. The party's organiser, Ruby May, said that the powder "amplifies the experience of listening to house music and any other electronic genre". Sounds like Easter Sunday with the family should be a lot more interesting next year.
