"Pastors therapists through lawyers and even then only after a couple of cocktails. This is the box of oddities. For your topic on Robert, the doll got a lot of response a lot of messages and emails from people not ever unhappy with me. No. It's wrote my friend had a Robert, the doll encounter she and her boyfriend went to key west last year and made it a point to go see, Robert. They opted not to take his picture because the whole asking permission thing kind of freaked him out but they decided to take some pictures when they got back outside and the phone wouldn't take a normal picture. All the shots were blurrier streakier distorted. She showed them to me too. There were no phone issues before or after they left the Robert Museum freaky. Then on your facebook post about Robert, the doll, a ton of hilarious remarks for example, Goth why four twenty said complimented Roberts outfit in paid my respects before liking this post. And Nigel V eighty-one wrote my shower case crack this morning after listening to this episode, it's GonNa cost me a packet I should have skipped this one ps where should I send my forgiveness letter? I'd be less than honest if I did not admit that after doing that episode. I didn't think twice every time I got in Mike I've gotten in my car since then because Robert the doll was behind you because now I'm terrified that something awful is going to happen and Oh, terrible things don't just happen in cars they to me everything that's ever terrible. That's ever happened was in a car disagree I saw that you got that done in a salon alright. In a salon I was thinking more of my first sex act that was also in a salon. All right frank. Lloyd Wright. Let's get right it. Frank Lloyd Wright's liked Frank Lloyd her riot. Frank Lloyd Wright was, of course in American architect designer Latham a writer educator. He designed more than thousand structures over a creative period of seventy years according to wikipedia right believed in designing in harmony with humanity and its environment philosophy. He called organic architecture. Right was the pioneer of what became known as the Prairie School Movement architecture. We are both fans of Frank Lloyd, Wright because of the straight lines, we love straight lines that just makes us sound. So like Vanilla love straight line yes we do. Everything has to within them. It has to be straight and NEAT. In addition to houses though, right designed. Original and innovative office buildings, churches, schools, skyscrapers, hotels, museums, and many other structures. You just want to clarify and say that many of my favorite things are very much not straight. He has had his work listed a world. Heritage site and right was recognized in nineteen ninety-one by the American. Institute of Architects. The greatest American architect of all time. Loud. Not long after being commissioned by a businessman an Oak Park Illinois Edwin Cheney to design a house in one thousand, nine, hundred, three right began immediately hitting on his new clients wife. Oh, I did I did not know he was married with six children of his own at the time. But he fell in love with Mrs Cheney and they thought probably the best thing to do was run away to Europe together. So they did the Cheney's soon were divorced but Frank Lloyd Wright's wife Catherine refused to give him a divorce. So right decided to design and build a little hideaway nook where he and his mistress could live. He built a beautiful house in Studio in one thousand, nine eleven in Spring Green. Wisconsin he named his estate. Tally lesson in honor of the Welsh Bard but the precedent had different names for this house. They didn't want to call it tally us and they refer to it as love cottage and the castle of love. Local residents did not exactly welcome the new residents with open arms. In fact, the Superintendent of Iowa County schools in a local newspaper said quote the scandal is bound to have a demoralizing effect on the school children of the community. It is an outrage to allow young men and women and boys and girls to grow up in the belief that a man and a women can so disregard the marriage bonds zoos. Locals were very vocal of their displeasure. Did they keep their house? They did not teepee tally in that I know of but but they did give him some nasty looks when they would go to town did they go to town on the lawn because that seems really inappropriate When they literally went to town for supplies. Some people some locals even threatened to tar and feather the couple but that failed to drive either one of them away from tally s, and so the townspeople then called upon a local sheriff to arrest Frank Lloyd. Wright for living with his mistress. I have questions. Yeah. Go ahead like why wouldn't frank? Lloyd. Wright's wife give him a divorce. was he not willing to take care of the family financially even if he was granted divorce was that the concern is that they would be destitute without him? No, or was it just like no. Married and that is that I don't think that she was worried about him providing for her or any of their six children. She just did not want to give him the divorce. Well, that seems unreasonable. Well, this was nineteen eleven in certainly divorce still has a social stigma today but back, then home I god, you were a semi, you'll thinner your setup. It sounds like you're saying like the beginning part of cinnamon and I keep I keep wanting you to finish cinnamon. Just seeing. Bon. But even the all was going on a right didn't give two shits about the standard conventions or what the outside world thought of his relationship. He was asked by a reporter about this quote scandal and he said. Two women are necessary for a man of an artistic mind could one to be mother of his children and the other to be his mental companion, his inspiration, his soulmate. He also said in a different interview quote laws and rules are made for the average. Oh Jesus saying. Not Making this better frank the ordinary man cannot live without rules to guide his conduct. It is infinitely more difficult to live without rules, but that is what the really honest sincere thinking man is compelled to.
