Play is the fifth studio album by American electronica musician Moby. It was released on May 17, 1999 by Mute and V2 Records. Recording of the album began in mid-1997, following the release of his fourth album, Animal Rights (1996), which deviated from Moby's electronica style; his goal for Play was to return to this style of music. Originally intended to be his final record, the recording of the album took place at Moby's home studio in Manhattan, New York.

The year: 4699 - A young adventurer on a desperate mission sets off to find Captain Ahab and his crew of outlaw whale hunters, for only Ahab can save his home planet from the most horrific beast known to the universe: Moby Dick
Hi there humans, we’re Dick Moby. We love this planet, particularly the watery bits. We also love looking good. And we don’t see why anyone should ever have to choose between the two. We take oil-free and recycled materials and make beautiful eyewear out of them. We call it sustainable style. Meet bio-based acetate - plastic’s smarter, sexier, eco-friendlier cousin. Made from wood pulp and zero oil, it keeps the pollution down - and biodegrades in 115 days if you bury it in compost soil. This would be a stupid thing to do. Shop the range. Impact per frame made of acetate and bio-acetate. Industry standard acetate. Dick Moby bio-acetate. Chemical UV-stabilisator %. %.
By this time, the remake Moby Dick (1956), had already made its rounds in the theatres, and was beginning to pop up on local television, so this earlier version was rarely shown until the 1990s when it showed up first on Turner Network Television and, finally, on Turner Classic Movies, where it now receives an occasional airing. The scenes actually showing Moby Dick are dramatic and frightening, even though the fate the script has in store for him would never have passed muster with Melville.
The Glasgow-born film-maker broke the news on Simon Mayo and Mark Kermode's Radio 5 Live show on Friday. We're taking the premise into the galaxy," she said. So we're creating a whole new world, and a new alien. Lloyd Bacon's 1930 Moby Dick even witnessed a tacked-on happy ending in which Ahab successfully killed the whale and returned home to his sweetheart, and Ramsay's film will not even be the first Moby-Dick adaptation to shift the action to space. A Japanese animated TV series, Hakugei: Legend of the Moby Dick, got there first in 1997 (the "whales" were in fact giant space ships)
Moby Dick: Moby Dick, novel (1851) by Herman Melville detailing the voyage of the Pequod, a whaling vessel whose captain is intent on finding the white sperm whale Moby Dick. The novel was not well received when published but now is widely regarded as Melville’s magnum opus and one of the greatest novels in American literature. Moby Dick famously begins with the narratorial invocation Call me Ishmael. The narrator, like his biblical counterpart, is an outcast. Ishmael, who turns to the sea for meaning, relays to the audience the final voyage of the Pequod, a whaling vessel.
Ishmael explains what Moby Dick means to him (in contrast to what the whale means to Captain Ahab). What really bothers Ishmael about the whale is its whiteness. In a graph, Ishmael describes all the natural and unnatural contexts in which whiteness is considered good or superior, including everything from pearls to white supremacy to priests’ white robes. Next, Ishmael tells a supposed Native American legend of a divine White Steed, which inspires everyone who sees it with awe and terror. The next example of disturbing whiteness is albino human beings, who, Ishmael claims, people instinctively fear. Just when we thought Ishmael was getting over this whole thing by getting to know Queequeg, he comes out with something else.
133: The Chase - First Day) Lyrics. That night, in the mid-watch, when the old man-as his wont at intervals-stepped forth from the scuttle in which he leaned, and went to his pivot-hole, he suddenly thrust out his face fiercely, snuffing up the sea air as a sagacious ship's dog will, in drawing nigh to some barbarous isle. He declared that a whale must be near.
