but whatever it is, I still like it.
Armin was relentless. But after we demanded a few encores I finally heard one of the songs I had been waiting for... Satellite, his very last song of the night (i think). We did the coat check fiasco for another 30 minutes, then went outside to try to figure out where Janette might have gone.
I remember someone handing me a phone, and all of a sudden it was decided that I was nominated to call someone's voice mail (maybe mine?), this was after 1)arguing with the bouncers about trying to get Janette's coat (which we later found out she had on her) b/c we were convinced she was passed out and freezing in an alley somewhere with no coat, and 2) walking for several blocks in both directions and checking in 24-hour diners for signs of her. The message said she was ok, and was at someone's house in NY. she said peter and I thought BusyChild, and was CRAZY confused b/c I could have sworn I had just seen/talked to busy. when we established that she was definitely OK, we walked about 80 miles to Ruben's car and he was our lifesaver by giving us a ride to the train station. Thanks again for the Groovanauts shirt.. I'm really excited about it!
Sat at the train station for what seemed like 45 hours, and finally a train came. Danny and Joanna passed out instantly on either side of me, but I sat there exhausted, yet wide awake, and stared back at 2 people who were staring at US for what seemed like 45 MORE hours on the train. We voted to catch a cab and listened to some French radio station that made me literally want to kill myself. I wouldn't have minded hearing some good music right then, or even good old-fashioned silence, but that f'ing French station was torture. Peeling my white patent-leather shirt off my body was maybe the second best feeling in the world next to the almost-hot shower I took at Jerzy's. me and Danny are still here... he's got more than his share of sleep and I've just listened to 8 hours of creaking floorboards and this huge dog, I swear to God, TALKING all morning. I never heard a dog talk before. Joanna is NOT here, at her house. Janette *finally* called me and we got all those mysteries uncovered. And I was remembering only vaguely calling the missed-call number back on my cell phone around 8, thinking it would be the person who was holding Janette captive, and I swear I had a good 5-10 minute conversation with this person, only to realize way too late into it that I was ACTUALLY talking to Ruben. So Ruben if/when you read this, I'm sorry if I woke you up and confused the living hell out of you this morning. I wasn't in my right mind. I apologize. I thought I was talking to Janette's Austrian-accented friend. wow.. my brain is officially being SHUTDOWN for the day.
Well anyway, this review has gone WAY off track. I could have summed the whole thing in saying that it wasn't the melodic set I was expecting from Armin, but I wasn't disappointed with, I guess you could call it -- a set designed to rock the New York crowd. I definitely had a blast every second of being there and I just wish *some* of you could have been there. You definitely missed a good night.
Now its off to start another sleepless day and back to living in anticipation of new Glow opening. " />
