The Many Forked Tongue

It’s Not Unusual plays wordlessly in a carpeted room. The singer breathes twice, speaks twice, speaks with a forked tongue, as it were. This has the desired effect: the performance redefines what is unusual within the room. One singer, a crowd of tongues. Meanwhile, in Nevada, Tom Jones gives a fake name to a hotel concierge, who politely pretends not to recognise the celebrity.
