josh homme of queens of the stone age is creating a new revolution in hotel vandalism. rock bands have long been known for trashing hotel rooms, but rarely for secretly beautifying them. while his band is on tour, whenever they stop at a hotel they will move certain fixtures out of the way (paintings, mirrors, toilets) and draw secret artwork behind them. homme and other artists are now even beginning to get paid by some hotel chains to do this, hoping that people would pay extra to stay in rooms with celebrity graffiti in them. but this expression isn't merely for celebrities - homme and friends hope that it will catch on in a major way, bringing secret wall tattoos to hotel rooms everywhere.
