30 years ago, in Dallas...

around 30 years ago, I lived in Dallas. There was a big industrial music scene at that time. We attended a Revolting Cocks show that would be difficult to describe. Revco reunited and returned toDallas to play their Big Sexyland.

The guys are still alive and not fat. I'd call that a success. 

I was skeptical about the show. But I'll admit the band sounded great, the songs were still fun.

I had planned to go back to the hotel after the show. But somehow we hooked up with Adrian, and didn't make it back till after 2. That wouldn't be a big deal as I was hoping to sleep in. But that didn't happen. The alarm clock in the Aloft Hotel (Love Field) went off at 5:15 AM. I fumbled around till it went off. I must've hit snooze because it went off again at 5:20. I removed the plug that time. Then Troy's phone alarm went off at 6:20, I managed to get that off. The maid started knocking on the door at 8 AM. I ignored it and tried to go back to sleep. She came back to knock again at 8:15. I ignored her again but this time she used her key to walk in, at 8:15 AM! I had a 11 AM checkout time! I was not happy, not at all. I got dressed, grabbed the alarm clock and went to the lobby to complain. They were not too interested, "they're not supposed to do that" was the response I got, Yeah... I sort of got that.

I found out our friends Jason and Holly were staying at the same hotel this weekend. I told them about my experience, warned them about the alarm clock. They thought it was funny... until their alarm clock went off at 4:45 AM. Dallas Aloft Love field, get a handle on your housekeeping staff!
