Gullibility-A-Go-Go

""We have bagpipers march through the club to march out any bad energy and bring good energy for the club's opening. We want to create good energy. We had a Buddhist monk come in earlier today. He burned sage and blessed the club, worked with us on our energy, got our minds focused right. We did meditation and had acupuncture for all our key employees. It is important to us that there is no ego and we work as a team. So, we blessed the club as a family."

- Greg Jarmolowich, the very-superstitious managing director of Prive, a Las Vegas nightclub, describing the various silly rituals he undertook before opening night.

Notice that only the "key employees" got the acupuncture? That's how he's going to make a team of "equals". A team of equals where some get (useless) perks that the others don't. That's a sure way to eliminate egos, huh? (And can someone explain to me why bashing someone's ego, ambition, etc., is always so important to superstitious folk? Is it so they, who dictate how these things will go, can always stay on top?)

And how much did all this mumbo-jumbo cost? As managing director, I thought his job was to make the club money, not to start burning through it on nonsense before the place even opened. Yea, he's a real find, this guy.

After all my years in the music business, I guess I just don't understand nightclub culture like I thought,...yet, based on Jarmolowich's "spiritual" outlook, I still think I can guess who his opening act will be: Obviously, it has to be an artist that shares his beliefs, and is willing to "march through the club to march out any bad energy and bring good energy for the club's opening." Someone who will be enthusiastic about it even.

Yea, I know exactly who it'll be. I can see the in-house video advertisements playing right now:

  1. Just exactly do you think you are?
    Greg Jarmolowich is one of the very most respected and intelligent people in all of Las Vegas. His focus on his people and customers rates higher than any Managing director or owner of any club in all of the Nation. Prive' will prove to be the top club in 2008 outshining the pompus brash management of PURE Management group (Pure, Tangerine, LAX and others) Where you are treated as meat!
    Obviously, you must be in bed with someone there otherwise you would not be writing such crap!

  2. You obviously don't know Greg. He is an all out genuine guy. There is not a person in town that would back up that statement. And...obviously you are a coward to not put your name to your comments. People like you ...jealous and envious are a dime a dozen. Why wast the time, go work for Steve Davidovici , now he is a real piece of work!

    Um, you left out "superstitious" in that assessment of Greg's qualities - which is all I charged him with. And, no, I'm not "in bed" with anyone but the beautiful, black, big bootied bitch who comes by every once in a while to laugh at this stuff with me.

    "You obviously don't know Greg. He is an all out genuine guy. There is not a person in town that would back up that statement."

    Hilarious.

    "And...obviously you are a coward to not put your name to your comments."

    Um, that's my name, and photo, at the top of the blog. Are you blind and stupid?

    "People like you ...jealous and envious are a dime a dozen."

    OK, now you're just making shit up. Assumptions are sad. Stop it.

    "Why wast the time, go work for Steve Davidovici , now he is a real piece of work!"

    I'll look him up. What? Doesn't he burn sage and shit?

  4. Greg was trained to do his job properly and learned his duties well. He may appear to be the great-guy-in-charge, but that is only a character he plays when he is working (you). People believe he is “someone” because he (and about 25 other people) can usher you in the door quickly, without a cover… what a remarkable, intelligent, sophisticated talent! Although you would like him, if you really knew him, you would know he has always been and always will be a greedy, opportunistic rat! Wake up and smell the con artist people!

  5. Looks like the last poster got it right along with the blogger. The ony thing Prive was tops in was the size of the fine from the Nevada Gaming Commission. Dont forget that Prive also went bankrupt and took two other clbs down with them (Living Room ad Rose)
