monday 11 april 2011.

it’s busy at the hotel tonight.  there’s some convention in town. and lots of stupid-ass people, with stupid ass problems that are not necessarily concierge-related, but they call me to help them anyway: 

– i’m at pier 40, and i can’t get a cab.

– your wireless is slow.

– i lost my phone in a cab. can you call the cab company and have the driver bring it here?  why aren’t they calling me back? i need that phone!

– where can we eat that’s good? we’ll eat anything. 
no, we don’t want sushi.
no, we’re vegetarian.
no, we don’t want italian
no, we don’t want american.
etc. etc. etc.

in other news, i’m working at the Other Hotel tomorrow in the am, because Lana is on vay-cay.

in other, other news, except for the stupid-ass people, i kind of enjoy the busy-ness of it here.  the DJ is pumpin!

and in other, other, other news, i’m going to the ‘hoe again on wednesday! good times!

geminis twin?

not, it’s not gemini’s twin, it’s actually twin sister.

but if you remember the SNL skit, you’ll know what i’m talking about.

anyway, twin sister is playing tonite at the hotel. it’s hipster central in the lobby tonite. i can’t even count how many ironic moustaches i’ve seen already, and the show doesn’t start for another hour.

i don’t know who the hell twin sister is, but thanks to the power of google and youtube, i’m totally well-versed. they’re kinda ethereal-sounding. reminiscent of the bands from 4AD from the early 90s:  cocteau twins, dead can dance, this mortal coil, throwing muses, his name is alive.  (note: before all of you music geeks lash out at me, here’s my disclaimer: i’m not sure if the aforementioned bands were actually on 4AD, so don’t get all crazy on me.)

i don’t really know how to describe their music, but it’s sorta like unicorns and stars and rainbows and waterfalls and “material girl” era madonna, with a backdrop of raindrops and flashdance and chimes, and lots of airy, breathless chanting, and charades. weird.

have a look/listen:

i don’t care. i enjoy this song.
