She Dies Tomorrow Review
"Welcome to film spotting. So if you're the kind of person who used to stay on top of new releases, maybe you saw two or four or even more new movies every month this new paradigm that has new releases popping up on various platforms with little or no warning can be frustrating. Probably, it is hard for us even Josh to keep up with isn't it miss the days of the studio release calendar that was nice. Never thought we'd say that that being said while the world waits for major titles like tenant or There are smaller films being released all the time every weekend. Later in the show, we're going to get to a few of them I though I review of a movie that had its own unique release plane drive in theaters for a week before becoming available on demand on August seven. How? Can you come over? Are you. Okay. I. AM going. Mar.. Is Not Marin for me. All right listen I'm really freaking right now. I feel like you put this idea of dying in my head can can you just call him back? Adam as the title suggests she dies tomorrow is about death. This is the second feature from writer. Director Amy Simon She's probably also familiar to send a files as an actor in the likes of upstream color and wild nights with emily and here she is specifically focusing on characters who come into let's just say a heightened awareness of their mortality caitlyn she'll plays amy a woman in. The wake of break-up who we watch and the opening section of the movie spending listless lonely night trying to unpack in her new home at one point in the evening, a pulsing blue and red strobe. Light effect seemingly invades the space casting amy under a spell. When she comes out of it, she calls a friend played by Jane Addams and tell Sir I'm going to die tomorrow. Now, that's a line or at least a variation on it that characters might speak in many of your favorite films atom fair to say mortality is a pet theme of yours You and Matty did a top five movies about mortality list back in two, thousand, eight, all that jazz wild strawberries. Those films were among your choices so I couldn't help lender after watching. She dies tomorrow. If you found the movie satisfying in the way, it explicitly presents plays with the idea of our impending deaths. Does it deserve retroactive consideration for a top five list of movies about mortality in terms of subject matter and the way it's explored regardless of my personal reaction to it, you'd absolutely have to consider it for such a top five and. I think about Jane addams character in the movie she's a friend of Caitlin shields, amy, and this is a film where almost every character in the movie not all but almost every character has the name of the actor portraying them just in case you were wondering whether or not. There was meant to be any crossover into the personal lives of this cast in the film makers Caitlyn. She'll is playing amy right named after. Presumably. Amy Siamese and whenever Jane is confronted by dubious when she starts her spiel about how she too is sure she's going to die tomorrow. She has a habit of trying to express what she's feeling that certainty with examples right there's multiple times where she says things like it's like when you're going for a walk and something happens and I'm GonNa follow her lead here Josh to start every single one of us knows. We're going to die right we walk around with that knowledge on some level every day but that doesn't carry the same terror with it as those times when it does really hit you
Fear Of Death Is Contagious In The Psychological Thriller 'She Dies Tomorrow'
"Our film critic Justin Chang says, she dies tomorrow feel surprisingly in tune with our present moment of unease. Everything you need to know going into sheet is tomorrow is pretty much right there in the title. This moody and more deadly funny psychological horror film opens on a young. Woman. Who Awakens one morning with a horrifying from edition of doom she believes that she's going to die tomorrow and it sends her into an eerily calm. Almost Zombie like trance. She wanders the rooms of her recently purchased lock home. She plays Mozart's requiem repeatedly on a record player and shops online for an urn to hold her cremated remains. She never explains why she thinks her death is imminent, but the look on her face is so grave and haunted that we find ourselves believing it to. The woman played by the excellent actress Caitlin she'll is named amy. Not. Coincidentally, that's also the name of the filmmaker amy scientists who has said that the movie was inspired by her own experiences with anxiety and her recognition of how easily that panic could affect those around her. And she dies tomorrow the fear of death proves contagious. The mere act telling someone that you're going to die tomorrow is enough to plant the idea that they are going to die tomorrow and so on and so on. The first person amy tells is her friend Jane played with a sharp comic edge by Jane Addams who thinks she's being ridiculous but the seed has been planted by the time Jane stops by her brother's house where a birthday party for her sister in law is in full swing she too has come to believe that she's going to die tomorrow. And once she voices this fear, the other party guests, it's only a matter of time before they also succumb. In the montage you're about to hear Simon's uses thunderously loud music written by Mondo boys and wild strobe lighting effects to achieve startling moments of operatic intensity. I'm going. To die. Tomorrow. Throughout the movie in these feverishly heightened intervals, Simon seems to be expressing level of horror that the characters themselves cannot. Jane's brother and sister in law. That's Christmas Gina and Katie Nolan do panic a little over what will happen to their daughter when they're both gone. But for the most part, everyone here tends to retreat into their own private moods showing little concern for others Jennifer Kim plays a party guest who abruptly breaks off a relationship something she'd been meaning to do for months. Her now ex boyfriend played by tune had been bay does something much more frighteningly impulsive. Interestingly no one really tries to ward off the crisis or even figure out what's going on a sense of futility sets in and stays there. There's something troublingly resonant for me about the characters inertia. Speaking as someone who's able to work from home and hasn't suffered so many have during the pandemic I'm not afraid of dying tomorrow but I recognize something of myself incitements as characters, the ones who retreat into a state of false calm maybe because screaming and expressing how they really feel might be too horrible or flat out exhausting to bear. I don't want to overstate the metaphorical implications of she is tomorrow, which was made well before the pandemic. But Simon's clearly has her finger on something about how people might respond or not respond to an invisible threat. She's made a fascinating disaster movie of the mind. This is the second feature scientists as written and directed seven years after her debut film. The lovers on the run drama sun don't shine. She's worked for more than a decade as an actor writer director and producer rooted in the independent film world, but with increasing forays into Hollywood. She's one of the key creative forces behind the TV series, the girlfriend experience, and you might also have seen her performances in recent studio thrillers like Alien Covenant and Pet cemetery a role that helped her finance this much lower budget horror movie. Depending on your persuasion, don't like she dies tomorrow might not sound like ideal pandemic viewing but I think one of the great virtues of the horror genre is that it can put our own fears into perspective. There can be enormous value in confronting our feelings of dread had on and feeling a sense of kinship with characters who are confronting there's to. Sign it's doesn't provide easy answers. She also doesn't tell us if her characters worries are justified. She closes the movie on a note, picked between serenity and alarm leaving us to wonder if the end is as near as it seems or tomorrow might, in fact, be another day.

She constantly worried that she was missing an opportunity letting the visitors and residents of Hull House down but she had to rest sometime eventually. Her body insisted and she would practically collapse into bed. Barely getting out of her starched close before her face to the pillow. She was usually a heavy sleeper but this time she will to the rattle in clump of a carriage making its way down. Halston street when the hoof beats faded into the distance. She closed her eyes again. Ready to return to her dreams but then her ice snapped open again. Gene couldn't move. The darkness seemed heavy holding her place. She told yourself to take deep breaths but even breathing hurt. She tried to close her eyes but our lives didn't respond is fixed on the ceiling. Strange shapes began to dance in front of them was shapes sinister amorphous and unsettling sometimes human looking sometimes not gnashing teeth knives clause. Jane's body shuddered with primal anxiety. She stared paralyzed at the frightening vision for what felt like ours. She tried to call for help but her body wouldn't respond to anything just as she thought she would lose her mind in the cold silence but quite was replaced by whispers hissing. Moving as if something was roving about the room stepping close to her ear. Only to fly away again into the shadows. Jane tried once more to scream. But all that came out was a slight whimper. She tried to move with all her might miraculously and without warning she was able to do it. She turned her head to the left. Finally letting out a sigh of relief she was free but there was someone in the bed. Beside her decaying form quivering with rasping breaths and coughs chain gasped and pulled away tumbling out of the bed and onto the floor. Her side hurt where she'd smacked against the Hardwood but full movement had returned to her. She scrambled to her feet to look around. There were no whispers. No dark shapes on the ceiling or in the corner it was just her room another carriage clattered by outside. There were no more frights that night. Jane slept in fits and she was bleary eyed the next morning when she came downstairs to cook breakfast for the residents and they're visiting neighbors. Mrs Graviano a woman who was helping out of the day care center as chain. What was wrong. Never ashamed to ask for help and Jane told the woman the whole story. Mrs Graviano tutted softly to herself. Then turn behind her to call over. Mrs Bear a small Jewish woman with round Brown is Jane repeated the tale. Mrs Bear blinked alledgedly at her. It was the terrorists. She said ethically Jane needn't worry. Sometimes the Mahdi and mind did not agree and the mind made such a stink about it. Just breathe edenly. Mrs Barra said and all would be well. Jane was relieved to have a reasonable explanation once again. She was learning more from our neighbors than they learning from her. She was actually excited to go to sleep that night confident that she had the tools to defend herself but when the darkness came again it was different when she awoke this time she was able to move her head but only slightly. She curled a chin toward her chest to bring her gaze down from the ceiling. And to the edge of the bed there was a featureless dark shape. They're waiting chain wasn't sure what to do. It just stood studying her with a slightly tilted head but then the head tilted further than it should slowly but surely Jane managed to bring her trembling hand to the lamb. She clicked it on sure that the light would banish the shadow. The figure was still there it's head lolling on a broken neck in front of her. It was a woman deathly Pale. Her dress was blue almost white shimmering the soft light Jane wondered fomative. This was the same corpse from the night before but she was awake. She was sure of it. This was no dream. Jane watched the figure intently. She was usually an excellent reader of people but she had no means of understanding the thing that stood before her if it mentor harm. She was finished gene.

Not Threatening only sad devastated. Spent gene suddenly called something. Miss Culver headset in passing. Mr Hull had never really felt comfortable in the house after the death of his wife in one of the rooms Jane was no stranger to death. Many of the women she counselled had lost infants or relatives to various wasting diseases and it was common for the police to find debt drunks in the gutters of the near West side. She and Ellen hope to change all that but this woman was beyond helping even if she was indeed Mrs Hull. Jane ventured the question gently trying and failing to keep your voice from shaking. The ghost did not open her mouth to answer but chain could've sworn she gave a slight not heartened. Jane gave the spirit the warm she could muster under the circumstances. She asked if she could help in any way. The ghost just stared. Unblinking Louis. Jane asked if the spirit wanted to move on once again. Nothing unsure what to do next. Jane stepped forward to call for help. The ghost move to block her path. Chains heart nearly stopped the movement. She found her voice as best she could treating Mrs Hall Lake any other distressed member visiting groups to the House. There was no need to worry. Jane reassured her forcing her voice to stay steady. It was all in hand. They would find a solution together. It was clear to chain that the spirit did not want her to leave so she laid back a bit in bed. The ghostly woman floated a bit closer softening ever so slightly. Jane Smile tightly again thanking Mrs Hall for Allowing Her to get her arrest. She turned off the light and closed her eyes. Potentally aware of the Ghost's presence beside her now. All she could do was attempt to sleep. Perhaps the spirit meant well and didn't mean to be a bother. Maybe Mrs Hall even intended to watch over chain to keep her safe in a room with darker forces at work. Whatever the true motivations were. Jane never slept in low.

Jane attended one year of Medical School at the University of Pennsylvania before dropping out due to illness. Her career and medicine was dead. But Jane's desire for mission driven work was still kicking. It was an era of social reform and activism in eighteen eighty nine Jane and her friend Ellen Gates Starr decided to visit a settlement house in London called Twain. Bohol in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries settlement houses were created by people who offered educational services and attempted to combat poverty particularly in neighborhoods with high immigrant populations in industrial cities. These centers provided space for people from very different backgrounds to interact and exchange ideas as such settlement houses were breeding grounds for new social reforms. Jane and Ellen were so inspired by twenty hall that they decided to create their own settlement house called Hull House. In Chicago's West Side House provided lots of different services to people in the industrial neighborhood including adult education and job training kindergarten in daycare job placement acculturation classes and cooking. There was a Community Center Art Gallery and a gym with success of Hull House. Under her belt Jane became a very active and well known speaker and reformer for a wide variety of causes.

In an essay entitled Utilization Of Women In city government Jane compared the government to a household. She argued that certain functions of the government fell under the traditional women's sphere.

"Which would debunk a lot of her previous stories? Like the Toco fire fire and stuff like that. I mean these people died in the in the lake and the ghost somehow got up there right. They came from the person so they had to go through the lake. So but that's a belief that there was I believe this is founded in superstition. And I believe that it was superstition superstition. They've they heard that someone had died in the house so they did that just for superstition and because of that superstition because of that pitcher of water it than it made everybody see or think that they saw something or expect to see something and when anything happens it could to be The lighting's really bad. We were one of the first cities to have lights Electric Lights in You know we. We did that in eighteen ninety three so this eighteen eighty nine when Jane addams moved in there there was not electricity in there and there probably wasn't for many many years. So this is all being lit by candlelight in oil lamps guests leading gas lighting as a precursor. Yeah so it could be gas. It could be guess could be. I mean you guys are laughing but the idea is that it could be something else and the the idea of ghost is that you have to prove that there is ghost. I don't have to prove that there isn't ghost burden of proof. The burden of proof lies upon on the supernatural. Not on natural. Okay well I get are proof. Is that many people reported similar things over the years I will also state I again. found this. I had her. I read this in that. I forgot about it. Mrs Bowen who saw ghost also claimed that three separate occasions she had to put out fires. Upstairs is that started for no known origins. Singed nothing and would just go out by themselves. No known origin except for Oil Gas or candle. Hello anything like so. The Jane eventually just turned this into a storage room and addressing the theatre later on you know I just think too. Many people were complaining leaning. I just think here's the thing we do have a lot of people that Supposedly saw this but there were a lot of people over the years that lived at whole house a lot more than just five or six people so to say that a lot of people if you put it into perspective this was in a normal house. That would be a lot of people because it would. It'd be most people saw it in this particular thing we're talking about a very small percentage of people that would have seen this ghost. Well I actually. I don't know that I mean that's that's just what I found. I don't necessarily know how many people I got to read the book. I believe it starts from superstition and it carries through from that in any little thing thing that happens would be attributed to this and they all have heard the stories of the person before I have another thought but I'm a save it for save for federal arguments. Okay okay save it all right. Geez all right okay. So then Another thing that we heard about on our tour and I didn't find a whole lot about this. I'm going to be honest. This'll will be short There's the fountain girls. There's a small Park with a fountain that's just outside of the house. Where supposedly the girls Sorry the spirits of the three girls play you can hear their laughter and feel a cool breeze when they run by you. Apparently they used to play chase around the fountain and continue playing it to this day. I again I only found a couple of references to this but I do remember them talking about it. I have a picture of the Fountain area. that I took on the tour I don't know do you remember hearing anything about this or Mondo or no. I don't feel anything when you were there. Anything happened. NOPE and I walked around it. I walked around the house. Basically you could go all the way around it. But I didn't get any sense or feel for anything in orbs or anything. Not We know how much you liked the ORB so not. They're not they're no well. It's tricky because you we couldn't go in the house so like I have pictures and and they look like there's things in them but there's not because it's going you could only look through a window so I can't say that there's anything in there from my pictures but there's other pictures okay. Then I'll put on the thing. Is there any pictures of the three girls now. Not that I could any video three girls that I can find. It just seems Kinda suspicious. Their van right. There's all these stories about the three girls that play at the fountain right but we have no proof of the three girls that play at the fountain right now did you. You said you had a story about about phone girls or did you not want to tell the story with. Oh my God. You don't want me to tell that story but we don't have to sell the story that's fine you just you met some girls at once. We'll just leave it at that while under the influence. Yeah now I just remembered. We didn't do we WANNA do ra Ra rankings for the woman white and then we'll do the phone girls and then I've got one more women in in white. I'm going to give it a one. Okay woman away does a one four PAT For minded. You WANNA go next. You want me to go to sure. I'll see eh. I'll say a five because lots of people saw it and they put a you know an object there. You know the water to if I would mean that you have a lot of doubt still about about it so where where does your doubt come from this. What is your? What is your questioning? Okay I'm just asking I'll move it up then I have less dealt and more believe I'm not trying to influence your your number. I just want to know that your attempt to Syrupy more doubtful as.

"Two two years. I was never made it to girl scout cookies. I just didn't care for it. Thank it wasn't my thing you don't want to be around other people too cool for that uh-huh okay all right so a lot of the things that that we enjoy today and I must say that she started all of those but she definitely brought a lot of them to the Chicago area for sure I was just thinking of that could there have been a YMCA MCA without a Jane. addams could there have been a boys and girls club without Jane. addams I I don't I don't think so or wouldn't be the same that it that. It is today Rhino where there are safe places for children to go after school. Yeah absolutely yeah that's big absolutely eh So some other things just a few more again. She had a big life even beyond whole house. She was president of the National Conference of charities and corrections from from nineteen o nine to nineteen fifteen the first woman to hold that title and became active in the women's suffrage movement as an officer in the National American Women Suffrage Association and Pro pro suffrage columnist. She was also among the founders of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People the N. Double ACP. So what is the suffrage movement. Can you sum that up. Yup well the suffrage movement is all about women's right to vote okay. Next year is going to be the one hundred year anniversary of the passage of the EH twentieth amendment. So I'm super excited because like when you say like pro suffrage it sounds like it. Sounds like the pro people suffering. Yeah isn't just about women. Voting Rights all voting rights suffrage movement was specifically focused on. I know women I know a lot of it was like it's no we are women. We have a different perspective on the world and therefore we should vote right absolutely is that we were the we run the household. We raise the kids and so we should have have a voice in how those how things are governed. Yeah it makes a lot of sense. I don't know why people didn't see it before but yeah well that's the episode. Have some other podcast. We're not on. You gotta get to the ghosts people. We're not at the Gold Coast here. This is just we're just talking. There's there's so many things to talk about yet okay. Inspired by Tolstoy Jane. Jane addams was a devout pacifist. She was a huge She spoke out against world. War One And here's the thing about World War One that I learned wooller one was actually a lot more or like Vietnam than World War Two when it comes to whether or not people agreed. We should join we'll because they didn't attack America right. Once you attack America. That was our way of getting into plus which by the way. What was it yesterday or day? Before was the anniversary of Pearl Harbor Harbor. Yeah yeah the six they think right yes so seven thirty sevens yes or the fifth or the sixth seven. Sorry sorry older people. Sorry but the idea though that you know it wasn't a universal thing because because we're one was so like well this treaty says that if they attack you we gotta go you know like it was just a different thing but anyways but people were upset with her it did ding her popularity for a little bit at the time but she for her really it was more. It wasn't about that war. She just hated alwar she just was someone that was like. No the only way that we can we can solve. These things is with talking. You know we don't need to go to war But basically it led to her being the first American woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize in Nineteen thirty-one. Good okay so this last part is a little bit more personal and is a matter of debate among historians people. This some of it is I mean some of these things are facts is just how you interpret those facts. One one word of what you're going to say is debatable. Yes but important word so Jane addams was Romantically tied with only two partners. That's the word that's the where the romantically part so so again. We're just you know I. We are two thousand. Nineteen we're going we're going forward and will interpret this in baby away that they wouldn't have back them but she was Linked with Ellen Star who we remember was who she went with originally to London and all of that yes And then later Mary Rosette Smith which actually would have Would have not been a part of history if not related the gene atoms we we actually forgot all about Mary Smith and she was a major contributor if not the biggest contributor to whole house not was doing a lot of the work while Jane was going off in giving speeches. off-side yeah so. Mary Smith and Adams live their life basically kind of as if they were married right. Well they said they said how you interpret that again you know. They remained together until Mary died in eighteen. Thirty four Jane Colter Dearest One. It was said that Marietta Mary Smith became and always remained the highest and clearest note in the music that was Jane addams personal life. Aw oft very sweet Early in nineteen thirty four. Jane had a heart attack and Smith nurse sure at home neglecting. Her own illness So Smith succumbed to pneumonia. Yeah fell into a coma and died on February twenty second nineteen thirty four. Wow so she put herself she. She helped Jane to the detriment of herself. Yes so I thought it'd be appropriate to Read a poem that Jane addams wrote to Mary Smith. Okay okay because you know I like poetry all right. One day I came into whole house. No spirit whispered who was there and in the kindergarten room there sat upon a childish chair. A girl both tall and fair to see to look at her gives one a thrill but all I thought was would she be best fitted to lead club or drill. You see I had forgotten love and only thought of Hull House. Then that is the way with women folks when they a attempts things of men they grow intense and loved the thing which claims from them a smile or tear like mothers who work long and late to rear their children fittingly follow them only with their eyes and love them almost pityingly so I was blind and deaf those years to all all save one absorbing care and did not guess what now I know delivering love was sitting there. is very touching. Yeah I was written by Jane. addams J madams. Wow Yeah She died on May Twenty First Nineteen thirty five at the age of seventy four of cancer those like year after after. Yeah Yeah when she died she was the best known pub. Female public figure in the United States House and the Peace Movement are widely recognized as is the key tangible remnants pillars of her legacy December tenth as you mentioned is Jane Addams Day and celebrated in Chicago. There's a park located near Navy appeared Chicago named after her as well as an entire tollway. Jane addams Memorial Tollway. That was more recent. That was pretty recent. Isn't it the Ronald Reagan. And is that the Reagan one eight right it's eighty eight. Yeah I'm pretty sure Mondo Mondo or Chicago guy it. I'm getting to the point where I just tune it out when I hear it on the radio every morning driving a chain well it so work as it could to be like the same road but they call it different names and different sections and Chicago can be really confusing. I still I'm. I'm just that person that likes. Go by what I know. The numbers senators and fifty five. It's not the Eisenhower the to ninety even and I do the same thing with all of our trained Sir Chicago two. We have the red line. The orange line the green light will they used to be the Howard. Line the Ravens. Would I still think that way. I don't think that way I think of them as the red color. Yeah Yeah what do you think of Ogilvy. Do you think it's still. What was the mattress station? Northwestern North Western station. I've all I've switched toby. Yeah okay all right all right moving on Oh Jeez okay so we are finally onto the one of the biggest stories and the reason that people associate this with haunting yeah. It's a shame that we that we take all all of this greatness and people when you say whole house this is the story that they bring up Yup pretty much. So there's it's one more bit of history that we should talk talk about when we talk about whole house. And that's the devil baby ever obey the devil. The Devil Baby. Oh Yeah Oh all right. I don't have a song but I don't have a song either. Thanks for giving me time to think of this Dave obey ban. Just your URA era. So the devil baby legend was a local story that immigrants and deeply religious people especially Catholics wchs started to tell it was in nineteen thirteen and a Catholic woman married an atheist right. The man refused to have a picture of the Virgin Mary on his wall saying that he would rather have the devil in his house than a picture of the Virgin Mary that can be arranged. And there's there's very things people say that he ripped up the picture other people said he just was like Nah. I'm good. I don't want that. The baby was born with cloven. Hooves pointed ears in a tail. It spoke in profanity as soon as it was born. The baby comes out and it's like yeah so as soon as he was born he ran around the table shaking his finger at his father in some stories say that the baby snatched a cigar from his father's lips the fathers soon caught him and took him to whole house supposedly Jane Addams kept him in the attic and denied his existence to anyone that came to the house. Some stories say that Jean Adams Baptize the baby and other stories say that when they tried to baptize him he ran away as a baby. And it's a baby was never seen again and their stories about devil baby went to. Oh it was someplace in bridgeport really. I'm serious it's what it was. And he grew up and then later headed dance on in a ballroom and jumped out out of a win. Yes yeah crazy story. Yeah after five weeks of people talking about it. The newspaper finally did an article on it. They didn't take get serious until they just kept talking about it for five weeks. This story might have influenced the Italian bride story that we told an episode two of ghostly having having listened to that we reference devil baby. Yeah we do. And it's honestly one of our favorite episodes. I enjoy that one. It was the research was weird and yeah I'll l. after his corpse cheese. Yeah go check it out. That was you're you're you're saying. I will say though that Gene Adams and everyone wanted whole house refused the this claim that there was a devil baby but they received a lot of visitors over years. Oh yeah people. We'll just show up in phone calls. Yeah and demand like show me the devil baby. Yeah so there was a great article that was written in the Atlantic in October. Nineteen sixteen. Sixteen that we will link to our show notes all about the devil baby. So where do we stand on the devil baby do you. Are you a Believer Mondo. Oh I'd like to see the devil baby. I mean you know it's interesting. I would have been one of those people that knocked on their door. Show me the baby I heard. Yes so I mean seeing is believing course but but just hearing this. Do you think it's possible. Oh yes.

I see whole house down the street st from a good Italian beef which the Italian beef place holders else. It's right down the street on Taylor and actually seniors manny's beef. That's not far. That's just to the east of there with the name of the Italian ice place and Taylor. Oh no you know everything. You're our man in Chicago. I know I always wait in the car and my wife or my son. Go 'cause there's long lines This this is a an interesting Italian Italian ice place. Across from Al's beef it is. Yeah like Danny's or something that's that's it. How did I know that? And why have I never been there. Oh because it's too good to see you might become an addict addict. The line is too long it is long is really live especially on a hot summer day. Well then let's not go on a hot summer day. Speaking of hot summer days. I think we have some listener manual. Yeah great transition keeping this is. This is hot off the presses. This is amazing. Fifteen minutes ago like fifteen minutes ago listener mail All about our previous episode on the Clown Motel so This is really exciting. I had something else planned for Listener Mail but we will save that for some other week because we've got An anonymous Lou a request to be anonymous listener mail. Wow Yeah all right so you guys ready I definitely am ready. Okay Mondo you haven't heard this okay. You did hear the con- Motel Episode Right. Did okay okay okay. Mondo does his homework he does. He doesn't come unprepared. No He's always prepared. Okay all right listen to every episode twice twice twice. Is that why our numbers are so good we have at least two downloads per episode. Then right right all right. So here's the message which in regards to the clown motel. I've been saying there since it was thirty one dollars a night. WHOA hold on thirty one dollars a night? I know I know so. Oh a couple of things but please keep this anonymous K.. So per chetty was not a doting motel tell owner. He's slum Lord who owns a lot of the town and US poor people to do maintenance which is why screws holding in laminate flooring are are baseboards etc to suffer a second. So screws holding in laminate is that bad Yeah that's where you get squeaks and all that oh no boggling buckling and things like that. Laminate floors are supposed to float. You know they just click together but there's actually nothing that's holding them down so if you take a screw and then you screw it down then Eh. CAN'T CON- would naturally expands. But it'll buckle interesting squeak interest. Now this is not the current owner. I just want to emphasize that that he's talking about so you're talking about her. Owner seems really cool. It is updating a lot of stuff so I don't WanNa go it's okay to go in. A person has a relationship with Tony Pause while this person would know right person yes. I'm so sorry I skipped US A. Ah Please keep us anonymous because I do work in Tonopah at times he said okay The clowns were out there just as a kitch kitsch it opened oh as kitsch. It opened when theme motels were big and kids would want to stop there. Finally it's not haunted. The maintenance crews for years walked the property nonstop so those footsteps maintenance knocks you hear three three doors down you hear actually heard three four three doors down there pretty good okay go ahead. I'm sorry The the cemetery haunted. Perhaps little known. Fact is that's not the full cemetery. The map was read wrong so so where the fence is is just a portion of the bodies that down a hill slope up under the abandoned barn structure up the hill all bodies. They are going into leave there. Because the cost to relocate at name is to our to locate a name is too much Finally we'll tell you or at least told me the clowns never removed and the lady in red is at the Mitzvah a hotel and not a school and was a prostitute chained to a radiator. I believe the story goes. Wow so that's a correction there at the end but yeah so he basically saying that the previous owner is like not haunted. Wow I wish we would ahead this for the episode might have won the polls. Well I guess it is time for the pulse. Oh No we don't need to do the polls you know we always have to do that. I mean I I think. That's kind of an outdated thing that we do on the podcast and I we should he wish you think I think we should do the pulse. Mondo what do you think you have after the polls and it just has to happen. I'm sorry we know how this is going to an hurry. And it's like a band aid ripping off. Okay do it right okay. Okay so here here. We go and the latest episode. We talked about the Klein Motel. Yeah and the polls were really close all week. People were like lobbying online line. Like you gotTa vote for like it was really there. Were people lobbying for you know. No actually they were lobbying for you for me and they were like pats right. We gotTA GIVE PAT the win. What I know they're like this is obviously just a gimmick to get people to come to the motel? There's no way it's haunted. You were very very supportive. So you're believers I even in some people that are typically believers were saying so in the end in the end it was a one. Vote Difference Mondo did you vote. I didn't ah I always do but.
