I had 2 older black women check in and their reservation was for a King Bed and I guess they didn't know, but they said they couldn't sleep in the same bed because one of them had aids and it made the other uncomfortable.
I've had people tell me that they had cancer and to please upgrade them to a suite because they were going to die soon.
We had one of our agents check a room that had a DND for a few days to make sure everything was OK..only to find a meth lab in the room.
In Las Vegas Kanye West, Yes The Mr. West, came to the desk to complain that our upscale steak restuarant refused to serve him because he was black. It didn't occur to him that:
1. The place was about to close because of time.
2. It being an upscale place, they required business casual dress and he was wearing jeans, snikers and a hoodie.
3. The manager he was complaining to was Black herself.
We had a gentleman from NY walk into our VIP lounge and talk about how he just lock $250,000 and he is just fine with it.
People having sex EVERYWHERE. Yeah, public sex is hawt, but do you really have to do it by the public elevators where everyone passes?
I had drinks, punches and all sorts of curse words launch at me. I could go on forever with this one.
Wow this thread has gotten pretty long so far. I wonder how many gave their life stories already.
2. Both. It depends on my mood. I LOVE some of the Amercian Sushi creations. Dragonroll and Spiderroll being some of my favorites. However, I have yet to find a place in the US that had Sushi as good as the crap little stands in Japan.
3. DOWN, UP, OH GOD YES, Meh.
the doc "let's rock again" gave me that much more respect for him. i loved how he just wanted to talk to people. no matter who they were, he just wanted to hear their story, to listen.
So, I hate "real" chinese food.
In no order:
Daft Punk at Red Rocks. This really needs no introduction. I had missed them at Coachella and was kicking myself for months after that. Red Rocks was the most perfect of do overs.
Bjork and Massive Attack at Fuji Rock. STUNNING!!! Just too amazing for words. Everyone who was stunned by MA Coachella showing has no idea how much they can bring it when given the time and money. Youtube does it no justice. And Bjork was just wonderful. Hearing Storm and Where Is The Line for the 1st time all tripped out with the mountain setting.
Merzbow into Sleater Kinney into BOREDOMS!!!! into Aphex Twin UCLA ATP. SHUT UP! SHUT UP! SHUT UP! SHUT UP! SHUT UP!SHUT UP! SHUT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hour long drum circle? Eye screaming at the top of his lungs? Richard D James following? Just amazing.
Sigur Ros Hard Rock Hotel 2005. Over 2 hours. Nuff Said.
Radiohead 2 nights APW.
What's the scariest thing you could possibly think of?
Assuming you make it to 75, what's your ideal of what your life would be like at that age?
Not having to work hopefully. living downtown in a fantastic city, taking morning walks, reading, drinking coffee and still going to great shows.
i once saw Shaolin monks come down from the hills in a small town in Guangxi province.. they put on a street show..
I was the biggest guy in the audience so they plucked me.. guy had me hold a metal pipe to his throat, then he bent the pipe in half with his throat.
Would you rather have too many hookers and not enough blow or too much blow and not enough hookers?
if you had to be trapped in a tv show for the rest of your life, which show would you choose? This doesn't necessarily have to be your favorite show, just one that you could live in for the rest of your life without going bat-shit crazy.
Marco, if you could be a woman for a day, who would you be and what would you do?
