"motel" Discussed on Poetry Unbound

"So this poem is from Richard Blanco's first book, a book also named after the same poem looking for the gulf motel, and I got the book a good few years ago and read through it and loved it. I brought it with me on a work trip where me and my colleague who was also a close friend were a way for a few nights. And the first night I had to go out to a meeting. And as I was leaving, I tasked my friend the book and said, I think you love this book. And when I came back from the meeting, after about an hour, my friend was sitting exactly where he'd been when I left, and his face was completely covered in tears, and he said to me, I have been reading this first poem, looking for the gulf motel, over and over and over for the last hour, and then he said, I think I know it off by heart now. And that friend is dead now, he died in the first year of COVID, and this poem a poem about remembering the past and a poem about knowing that there is death, and there is loss, and that somehow still remembering can be a sweet beauty, even if it's a sweet kind of pain. This poem from Richard Blanco has become a poem of my no two because it is a private memory that I share with a friend. And that's one of the things that a poem is yearning to do. I think a poem is always curious to know where will it land in the audience, where will it land in the readers, how will this poem acquire a new life in people who aren't going to remember the gulf motel, but who will remember the experience of loving this poem, the experience of sharing this poem, and this way a poem too is a dance between the writer between the art of poetry and then the people who read the poem and were brought in to all kinds of ways within which language.

"Looking for the gulf motel by Richard Blanco, Marco island, Florida. There should be nothing here I don't remember. The gulf motel with mermaid lampposts and ships wheel in the lobby should still be rising out of the sand like a cake decoration. My brother and I should still be pretending we don't know our parents embarrassing us as they roll the luggage cart past the front desk loaded with our scruffy suitcases, two dozen loaves of Cuban bread, Brown bags, bulging with enough mangoes to last the entire week. Our espresso pot, the pressure cooker and a pork roast wreaking garlic through the lobby. All because we can't afford to eat out, not even on vacation, only two hours from our home in Miami, but far enough away to be thrilled by a wider sands on the West Coast of Florida, where I should still be for the first time watching the sunset instead of rise over the ocean. There should be nothing here I don't remember. My mother should still be in the kitchenette of the gulf motel. Her daisy sandals from Kmart squeaking across the linoleum still gorgeous in her tail swimsuit and amber earrings, stirring part of arroz con pollo, adding sprinkles of onion powder and dollops of tomato sauce, my father should still be in a Terry cloth jacket smoking, clinking a glass of amber whisky and the sunset at the gulf motel, watching us dive into the pool, two boys he'll never see grow into men who will be proud of him. There should be nothing here I don't remember. My brother and I should still be playing part cheesy, my father should still be alive, slow dancing with my mother on the sliding glass balcony of the gulf motel, no music, only the waves keeping time a song only their minds here 10,000 nights back to their life in Cuba. My mother's face should still be resting against his bare chest like the moon resting on the sea, the stars should still be turning around them. There should be nothing here. I don't remember. My brother should still be 13, sneaking Rome in the bathroom, sculpting naked women from sand. I should still be 8 years old, dazzled by seashells and how many seconds I hold my breath underwater. But I'm not. I am 38, driving off Collier boulevard, looking for the gulf motel for everything that should still be, but isn't. I want to blame the condos, their shadows for ruining the beach and my past. I want to chase the snowbirds away with their tacky mansions and yachts. I want to turn the golf courses back into mangroves. I want to find the gulf motel.

Inflation Isn't Going Away Anytime Soon. Who's to Blame?

"Inflation, which had previously pushed past 7% as now moved up to almost 8%. The latest figures just out, inflation rises to 7.9% in February, the highest in four decades. So it seems like every month now we have the highest, the highest, the highest. Why? Because it's higher this month than it was last month and it's higher last month than it was the month before. And I just saw Janet Yellen from the Federal Reserve basically saying, hey, this is something that is going to be something we're going to be living with. Certainly for the rest of the year. And Jen Psaki says we're kind of hoping things will moderate by the end of the year, but that can be taken as propaganda. It's more an expression of the Biden administration's wishful thinking than anything else. Inflation here is being driven by a series of factors, all kind of coming together. I would say there are two that are paramount. One of course is the big reckless spending of the Biden administration itself. Essentially, when you print money, you get inflation, and that's the domestic cause of inflation. And then the secondary cause is global instability. When you have constraints on oil supplies, and now the United States is not buying oil from Russia, we're going to buy supposedly from Venezuela and from Iran. But again, if you say I'm not going to buy it on the world market, the cheapest place I can find it, it generally means you're going to end up paying more. And we see energy prices soaring. That's a major driving factor in inflation. And we're seeing that then percolate into the prices of everything. I mean, we're not just talking about paying higher gas prices at the pump, but of course it takes fuel to bring food deliveries it takes fuel to deliver furniture. It takes fuel to operate hotels and motels, and so we see prices rising across the

"motel" Discussed on Air Male with Robert Sunday

"Hey, what's happening? I'm Robert Sunday, and you're listening to airmail. That's right, this is the flight attendant who happens to be a Mexican straight man. Whizzing around in 600 miles an hour from city to city to city to city with all your stinky butts flying around paying $400 a seat round trip to get to where you want to go. And you want me to smile and pour you a soda at the same time, ah, yeah, I'll pull you out of the burning for carcass of an airplane if I have to because that's what they pay me to do, and I will do it for you, but today, actually going to talk about the sad things in life, man. I got Fannie members who are sick and dying from COVID, they're suffering because their family members are dying from COVID, man, and it just makes me just obsess and sets me, man. It makes me sad 'cause life shouldn't be that short and this tend to prayer out to my family and just, you know, we hope that recovery happens for healing and in everything and then just to love abounds, right? 'cause it's fucking virus won't relent. Shit. Anyway, on a brighter note, you know, I went on a road trip last week, you know, I work in Charlotte, North Carolina, live in the California desert. So I decided I'm going to drive my little whip. I got a little BMW Z four, little convertible sports car. It's fast. And I took it from Charlotte through Atlanta that was the worst traffic on the planet, never recommend anybody move into Atlanta or around it. I would recommend Alabama before any place out. And you know what speaking of Alabama? I stopped in Birmingham, and that place was actually pretty nice. I'm pretty sure Birmingham's Alabama. Maybe it's Mississippi. Nah, it's Alabama, but it's a quaint town. I drove through there at night with my little race car and they had all of their overpasses illuminated with lights. You know, they could easily snap right into the holiday spirit with these amazing lights, like you're in the land of ours with these crazy lights that make the concrete structure around it and artistic piece. All it needs a little light to illuminate its beauty and symmetry and overpass pal prowess or whatever have you. On the second day, that was cruising along, drove through the beautiful state of Arkansas, started to break the speed a little, started to break the speed limit a little more than I was used to. I was nervous. I didn't want to get hung from a tree over there in the south driving fast and you know, you know, I don't know. I use for some reason once I crossed the Mississippi River, fell a little more bold, I guess. But yeah, I was always in Oklahoma, stopped for some gas and these two farmers pulled up. Young dudes, cowboy hats, old 1980s truck with the payload full of firewood, and they're like, that's the nice car but I'm like, yeah, thanks, man. Fucking cool ride along this bitch don't get me in trouble. And then the guy, I know this guy had all his wood. I was like what are you guys doing with all that wood? Oh, we're gonna use it on our farm. I'm like, cool guys, what do you guys grow on your farm? At the same time in unison, almost like in song form, they say, wee. So they were pretty excited by the business. And the other, I had to say, people who were involved in that industry, especially on the growing side of it. There are some cool people. Cannabis cultivars are usually nice people. And I think they're just by nature of the product that they deal with are always in the happy mood. But anyways, yeah, he had a me a pamphlet of their company, royal cannabis company, Oklahoma, if you happen to be passing through Oklahoma on your way to Arkansas, or on the eastern edge of the state, nice guys. I'm sure they grow fine product and I'm neither endorsing or declining involvement in any industry. I'm just a podcast host. I'm not a connoisseur, we at least so you don't know. Anyway. So I had to sleep at some point, so I stopped a hotel room the night before, I met mister Oklahoma, you know, weed kings over there. And I tell you what, man, I stayed at a hotel room on that was the last night. I stayed in Albuquerque. Oh my goodness. It was the night before Thanksgiving. The hotel did not have locked back doors and it was at first it seemed like it was gonna be chill next to you know. There was a party happening in the dirt parking lot behind the fucking hotel and people talking about my little beamer. I'm getting nervous at the end of take the wheels off it and they put cars start rolling up, bumping bass into the night and people and hollering and I'm trying to do a zoom class. Online, not even 6 inches away from this fucking street party and actually the topic we're covering in social psychology is prejudice on like trying to be fucking focused on this subject prejudice, try not to exercise prejudice behavior because these fools outside hooping and hollering at the fucking motel 6 fucking make a noise. And try and get a good rains fucking quiz. Yes, again, my master's degree, and I got final exam coming up this Wednesday after this. It's going to be a celebration. It's going to be great. I'll be a whole lot smarter. I can almost feel it happening the osmosis is taking place. But yeah, the road trip ended uneventfully. I woke up in the still and I had to get the fuck out of that hotel room. I think someone was smoking meth in there. I had a really sour fucking I killed all my fucking life ambitions in the hotel room. Probably a couple people even got killed in that room. I have a feeling, I don't know. I use my satin pillowcase to prevent any cross mojo a nation. I don't want to be cat and she know weird hotel vibes. Take your own pillow case to the hotel. It is savior psyche, some fucking damage. That's another story from the time. Dreams of whole tones, they're always weird, man. I shared the same beds at all these 5 tents sleep in I think all their junkies rubbing up. I'll tell you about that another time, man. So, yeah. I'm your host, Robert sundae. You know you've been listening to another installment of air mail. This has been a land based version of airmail. It was great to be rolling through the countryside interstate freeway system and my fast little whip. We got to a 135 miles an hour. Thank you very much. That was a very fast very scary and I didn't do it for very long. Pretty sure it's cool to know that car can really fucking move it. And the car is no longer a sheet. We had a conversation in the road trip. It's zed. You could buy a non binary car. It's called unprofessional. Someone's text messed me during the podcast unbelievable. Subscribe anyway. I'm Robert Sunday. You've been listening to hair mail. Catch up again soon. Shit, man. Ready for some miracles in the world to happen. We sure need them. Have a good day.

"motel" Discussed on The Atlas Obscura Podcast

"There are clowns in ancient Greece that dressed in animal skins and were sort of like street performers. They would throw nuts or stones at passerbys. And in the late 1700s, there was a guy named Joseph grimaldi. He created the makeup and the humor style that we associate with modern clouds. Weight grease paint on the face, and he was beloved and incredibly famous. But he also had this really tragic personal life. He had this tortured relationship with both his father and his own son. And as he grew older, grimaldi's body began to deteriorate from all his clowning. And he drank too much, and he descended into poverty. Charles Dickens actually edited grimaldi's memoirs and created the image of the tragic clown. You had this figure that was that was literally putting on a face or putting on a performance and going out there and putting on a show and acting silly and doing pratfalls and this and that. But as soon as the curtain closed in the audience is left, they're left with, you know, they wipe off the makeup and they're back to their injured, in some cases, alcohol itself. And so that was the really sort of fascinating duality of the character. This tragic clown character would be what we associated with clowns for many years to come. In the 1930s, in the wake of The Great Depression, you have this whole wave of sort of hobo clowns, wearing a boiler hat and tattered clothes and frowning. You've probably seen paintings of these. But then, in the 1950s and 60s, clowns started to get cleaned up. No more drunk sad buffoons. These clowns were all red noses and oversized shoes and big smiles. There's too many reasons why the so called good clown emerged in America. And they are Ronald McDonald and Bozo the Clown. And so you had a generation of Americans who grew up with the smiling laughing, positive, happy clown, either trying to settle the hamburgers or coming into their afternoon shows. And then came that quintessential moment. When clowns turned scary. Back in the 70s John Wayne Gacy killed 33 people. Gacy was known around town, frosting little gatherings, and sometimes he dressed up as pogo the clown. In prison, he even painted self portraits of himself as pogo. He became known as the killer clown. From here on out, well, it's basically nothing, but evil clowns. You have Stephen King's it. You have the killer clowns from outer space. Wear clowns become scary is out of context. In other words, a clown not at a circus or a birthday party. So for example, a clown that is walking around a park alone at night. That's creepy, right? The clown is knocking on your door at midnight. The clown that is outside the normal context in which we expect to see them, that becomes threatening because we don't know why are they there? What are they up to? Who are they performing for? In clowns in the middle of the desert, next to an abandoned minor cemetery, yeah, that's definitely pretty much outside of normal context..

"Known as the tone of pop plague. Some of the headstones just say baby. And of course, they're the mining accidents. One of those people was clarence David. Clarence was a minor. A minor who had a deep abiding love. Of clowns. Over his lifetime, he mastered a collection of a 150 clown statuettes and figurines. But he died in a mine fire. In 1942, and he was buried in the tone upon cemetery. Clarence's kids, Leroy and Leona, lived in the area, and were in the motel business. And 40 years after he died, they still had their dad's old clown collection. They decided to honor his memory. By opening a motel, a motel, right next to the cemetery, where he was buried. Featuring his clown collection. They arranged all 150 figurines in the lobby. And then and there, the clown motel was born. I never never was there any clowns. I didn't even I think in a way I did after the years of putting in there 23 years. I became born to me. Bob porchetta was born and raised in tone upon. He loves his hometown. We got his number from the local Chamber of Commerce. He's got a personalized license plate on his truck that says tona paw. Yeah, I do on the program driving right now. And he took over the clam motel from Leroy and Leona, because they were old friends. He ended up running the place for nearly a quarter of a century. Bob, well, it kind of became the clown guy. He tripled the number of clowns in the place. Some he picked up at yard in a state sales, and others were gifts. A lot of clowns and I had on my shelf came from Europe. And one couple and they would pay for their rooms with it. And they bring me like ten clowns a year. I mean, really beautiful guns that they found on their travels. And I would give them a free room for that. I remember walking into the lobby of the clown mat for the first time. And it truly is. Floor to ceiling clouds. Shelves of clown figurines and statuettes landing the wall. In the corner, there's a life size clown in a rocking chair, creating two baby clowns. There are certainly enough clowns to give the average person nightmares. While that happens quite a bit, suppose there are things that happen in some of the rooms. I have a great big clown in the office. And I had a pain and so it looked like Ronald McDonald. And this guy, well, Kevin and he's into that. That says he was standing in front of his bed. And I said, what happened? He says, I'm trying to brush the sleep out of my eyes. And he says that big clown was standing there and he raised his right arm and left. And. He had to believe these Tories because why would they lie? I mean, I have no reason to lie. So he was crazy, no doubt about it. Yeah. Sometimes the customers wouldn't even make it inside the office. They'd ask bob to come out and check them in so they could avoid the lobby, with its floor to ceiling shelves of clowns. Alas. Even if they skipped the lobby, bob had decorated the rooms to fit the theme. Each room had a microwave, a floral bedspread, a shade carpet, and a big clown portrait. They come in, they understand here, but he says, I can't have those pictures there on the wall. So I would pick and put a mental over the pictures. And then they were converting me.

Why Its Expensive to Be Poor

"They say it takes money to make money. It's true and it's also true that it costs money when you don't have money or a better way to put it. It's expensive to be poor. This is jubal added things. Food is more expensive when you don't have a local grocery store or can't afford to buy in bulk wants to carry a ten gallon jug of pickles on the subway. Not me housing is more expensive when you have to stay in a motel because you can't afford a security deposit to rent an apartment in many other random little things. Add up like how it costs more over time to do your laundry at a laundromat when you can't afford a washer and dryer but today we're just a focus on banking and how it is more expensive to manage your money when you don't have a lot of it while cashing your paycheck and paying your bills is pretty tedious for most of us. It's actually a challenge for those who are poor or lack stable income. A few years back many big banks realized they weren't making enough money off of small accounts so instead of offering free no minimum balance checking accounts the kind popular with many low income customers. They decided to require minimum bounces and customers. Pablo that threshold. They have to pay a monthly see. That's right if you don't have enough money in your checking account you have to pay the bank ten to fifteen dollars that you probably don't have because if you did you'd have it in your checking

My Husband Told Me To Quit Undressing In Front of the Window

"My husband told me to quit undressing in front of the window. There's no place like home when you stayed in a motel. You're standing naked in front of the window again. My husband said then. He closed the blinds. You're probably thinking if you know me at all that this doesn't sound like me to be standing naked in front of a window and you're right at sixty eight years old. I don't gyrate nude for all the world to see. But i had a perfectly valid reason for dressing with the blinds open. The motel room was dark as a cave. Maybe my vision is failing. But i don't think so. I can still read the fine print and the eye doctor confirmed last week that my eyes were doing great her words but i have spent huge amounts of time in motel rooms recently and they are dark. I begin turning on lamps as soon as i swipe my keycard and crossed the threshold. And i don't stop until i reached the air conditioner control panel on the opposite side of the room by this time. Six twenty watt lamps glow dimly because six dim lamps only succeeded in throwing faint shadows across the room. I thrust aside the curtains push back the blinds and let the light poor in the view from the motel window is never much a parking lot or maybe a retaining wall one time. We overlooked a construction site but at least sunlight can seep through illuminating the room. Enough for me to tell if i've grabbed my black jeans or my blue ones are first motel. Stint of the summer was in minnesota. Because we went to visit kids and grandkids. We even took some grandkids from georgia with us so they can visit their cousins. For three days. I accuse the georgia grandkids of accidentally packing my swim bottoms in their luggage.

Well originally when i book my flight on didn't have a great big long layover like i ended up with While i was in darwin i ended up. Having my flights changed for different time. I think it was the last change not long before i left. Darwin that gave me a layover of twenty three hours. Twenty five minutes in melbourne. And i thought to myself well. I am not staying in the epo for all that time with that. Thinking of any of the light problem that might occur. I just booked myself into the closest mitchell that could which was the ibis airport motel which is six hundred meters away. And yes. I've just had a look at the on. The map. pins like the ibis budget hotel at melbourne airport is basically within the april precinct. It's a short walk from terminal and it's you know it is the only hotel around albany. Puerto says it's not quiet currently quarantined. I tell us it would have been the only option for an overnight stop but queensland consider that to be entering carpet hotspot. Yes and i didn't really a look should have done more research before i left because i didn't attempt to fill in the queensland boorda pass until i actually arrived in melvin so that was when my panic started when i was in the hotel and sort of read started to read the instructions and that you know have i transited through a hot spot and i thought well. Currently melvin is a hot spot. It wasn't went. Ibew the tickets and another thing that i thought was a beat. We'd was that. Why would virgin have put me on a flight that went via from darwin to melbourne. Full that long and then debris brisbane. The next day knowing that melbourne was out spot.

So why in the world would they protected. I thank you for reminding me. Maybe this is. Maybe this is a symptom of going into national. Maybe on the representing the european opinion on apple competitive. The us opinion. Maybe there's an interesting difference in the mid atlantic summer which is interesting because apple you know if their entire argument is if you're in the apple ecosystem you have more security. You have more privacy. You have this ability to opt in opt out of all of this. Where android doesn't if. Facebook wants every interview data et cetera. And i guess my question is if it's not app you know if we're gonna live these kind of digital lives where we go everywhere with our phone. You know yes. We're going to give up our privacy to some extent but if apple can protect us who would protect us. I think that that's maybe they're the the best of a bad bunch and i don't know well interesting.

Latest Melbourne hotel quarantine leak proves 'we're not learning'

"Happened in melbourne's melbourne's now in a five day down because of a hotel quarantine skype and we need your wisdom on it. Nominee basically. What we've seen is there was an escape from high to- quarantine that's a couple of times in the last few weeks and months all ever ustralia but unlike what happened in western australia and queensland they it's lead to more cases than just one or two zero so over the weekend we've seen another cases come out A few more exposure sites being recommended that people who were they're going get tested and isolate so the question is is five days going to be enough for victoria to bring these quarantine lake under control from reports. Seems clear that for a short period of time the contact tracing hesitate to use words Lost the plot but the behind it could be because it's a variant purdue could've conceivably happened with the wuhan virus as well is it's very infectious foreigners anyway and you've had a bit of escape and that's the problem that they're chasing a bit in melbourne and i think the the tracing commander in victoria does excellent work probably was prematurely the other day when he said they're on top of it you know i don't think they wear on top of that day and it's just got a beat out in the question is how much virus there is out there. There's positive sewage from various places including cobra. Where interestingly the was this private event where there's it seems to have been a bit of a spreading events how much spreading event we've remains to be seen and yet again we see with his forest that it's cluster-based that you get clusters so you're gonna cost situation in the holiday inn and then goes to other areas where you can get further sub clusters if you like developing the question is just to what extent you've got other clusters going and the extent to which they're tying them dina what's really good. News is a lot of victorians are coming forward for testing. The now seem to be on top of the contact tracing at least according to the press conference yesterday and they're the people who are becoming positive already in quarantine which is really good news artan about although it's relatively recent moved into quarantine see don't know backtracking the extent to which they were spreading the virus before they became positive. So my guess is the. I can't really guess because no inside information but what to watch for is just. How many new cases develop each states. If you remember from western australia queensland particularly when they went to short shot lockdowns zero cases each day's me say well. Why did they bother doing it here. There are not zero cases each day but now cases coming forward questions what happens today but if there are more cases each day particularly new venues than they are going to be a bit anxious about letting this go on wednesday so we'll just need to wait and see. unfortunately there's no crystal ball gazing. You mentioned just now this idea of a short short incubation period which is something that we've sort of his that it's language that's been used almost every time this being an outbreak so we heard it in south australia and in sydney last year as well. Is there any evidence that this time. They truly is a shorter incubation period. Looking at national evidence. No it's more that you the you're much more likely to spread it to other people are not the reproduction number is more like three point. Four and two point five with the wuhan version of the virus. The number of people that you're likely to infect if it was going on chick to live in faith but which is an artificial number because if you look at say the crossroads motel they are not there. I don't know guessing. But fifteen maybe fifteen people or something like that because it spreads and clusters the are not as average when you can get into super spanning the are not becomes really quite large and scary and with this new variant presumably even larger and scarier. And then you get people emerging probably with a lot of virus on board early on who helped the super spreading to a car and that makes it looks as the incubation period is shorter. It's just i think they've got a viral load. That develops faster rather than the the condition period being shorter luck with other times that we've seen a short shop look down as the company to fly over this idea of a five day quarantine. Is it an overreaction. I don't believe it is controlled. Every time i say it but the fact is you've got this new variant around. There's increasing information from britain that it's more virulent that there may be hospitalization and maybe even har- death rate with it still uncertain so i don't think it is and i think it's just a question of getting things under control and letting the contact tracers get on top of it really quickly and not really damaging and it's been damaging weekend for the restaurant trades in victoria with valentine's day we can also the lunar new year but it's an important thing to do and you if you go back to the middle of last year. If tornado had done this kind of thing probably for about two weeks just says it was spreading in the northwest corridor. They wouldn't almost certainly have had a lockdown lasting well over hundred

"A few years ago there was argus. There still is a list called HIP Pinon. Is a online message board that focuses mostly on. I guess it's kind of like a read it saying amongst it was sort of like a sub. Read it type of thing about maybe ELECTRONICA or Vapor wave or something. And there was an injury about night bus and the experience of listening to music on a bus late at night and the connection with the Public access show from Toronto in the nineteen eighties called Nighthawk and night ride. Night Walk and night ride were basically closing video filler. For. When the station would go out for the night at like three o'clock in the morning or whatever, and what it was was just a steady cam roving the streets of Toronto late at night with some very cheap sounding jazz and lounge music going on and. It has an extremely. Surreal. low-budget hallucinatory quality to it especially with the music mysterious. Very. A bit considering in Intrigue Yeah The music is like I think they they used a lot of local talent like Canadian. Jazz talent but it all sounds very amateurish and cheap. And the The. Lends itself to what I describe as the closest cinema has ever come to an out of body experience. I remember in the nineties or whatever everyone was going to these. Movies and I had no interest in that because it was just. So over the top cinematic experience where you feel like you're actually there whatever sent, you know the sort of sense around cinematic experience that doesn't interest me I don't I don't get like any kind of. astral travel cinema experience to me. This is the real. Pastoral Travel Cinema Audio video experience night walk in night bus. I can watch these things on a loop for hours at end I feel like I'm. I'm literally leaving my body and traveling back in time to Toronto in the nineteen eighties. Especially, this sort of like surreal quality because it's on a steady cam so it has it's like you can't tell that the guy is walking. It's just like this steady mechanical movement of the camera. Going through space lit also in night ride I'm wondering I forgot. Is it a cab? And if so, who's in the back of the cab like? That's the thing you're. You are the you are in the back of the. The viewer I wasn't sure I was in the back of the cab or someone else. Like an out of body experience where you are and you? Don't see the driver the driver is of divine or the driver's not. Why is that? It's a gestalt experience. Your soul has migrated through the television screen and you are in this moment like in this surreal alternate reality and the the music really lends itself to that feeling and we discovered that having a playlist that reflects this sort of. Nineteen eighties early nineties cheapness is sort of reflective of the whole night ride night walk experience. So, this is a micro genre, a bus, and then the related genres. Late. Night Grocery run. Aka. Attention Kmart Shoppers And Pink Motel. Now late night grocery run was born out of the. Concept of people who cannot go out in daylight for whatever reason well, I I also just want to add its foreign of a lot of things. It's like American Keith Moray it's a gory phobes. It's just people who are night owls who just need to get some pringles and paper towels and other things and want to wander around the grocery store. It's people who have different work shifts. I was a night owl myself. So I encountered like all these like different kinds of people roaming around and it just seemed like. A very surreal experience and Anna Music that would play just set the tone and it just stuck with me all these years. Yeah and it's the same kind of experience with this sort of fluorescent lighting and it's very late at night. And there is a music coming over the speakers. And it's reimagined that instead of like, you know what you would expect at a K. Mart in the eighties like sting or Dolly Parton, it's all these see list nobody's. It sort of when when I I was kinda learning about it seemed like it was sort of the musical replacement for Muzak SORT OF LIKE IF R&B was Muzak Yeah I mean it's sort of like they needed something just to fill the atmosphere of these stores. So it didn't seem like such a desperate situation. Yeah.

Everybody has when they you think something's haunted. They they all say that they heard voices always things open and closing this ongoing. Everybody can say day that they've had the same experience because they all know the story. They all know next thing you you're gonNa tell me is that there's a woman in white that hitchhike outside the clown motel. It would be it would be the classic story so I do not believe it's real. Why would you open up a clown motel next to who was cemetery of very weird? Looking old cemetery looks like an old West Cemetery. I'M GONNA take my next five seconds just to tell you that it. It is absolutely fake okay. MIC Job. Yeah there you go. I will just say one really quick thing because I didn't put it in here. It wasn't the clown motel quick thing. This is after the closing are just. There's like A. There's like a school nearby and that supposedly also wanted wanted and there's a woman in a red this. I totally believe it now. We didn't. That was a part of our thing so I didn't put it in there but I just despite individual. Here's the thing who would visit tone apo- if you weren't in the military doing testing nuclear testing now and you know there wasn't is in a spooky clown motel and nothing else was haunted. Well maybe the military actually is like no. We don't want people there. That's kind of weird. Actually I'm surprised. They allow so so they would all nuclear bomb the clown mode or just you know encourage them to close hummy.

"motel" Discussed on Ghostly

"Also people come to the hotel Clowns can be creepy for some people. I don't know if you've ever heard of that hat There is a term for it. And I think it's called Karl. Rove Phobia cowl. Yeah cowl Rubia cowl cowl cowl phobia. Yes extreme or irrational fear of clowns. Yeah so oh I mean people go there with this With this idea that they are already really terrified. When you're in spooky movie do you get more scared or do you like I mean I would say you do? You're probably at a heightened alert because you know something's can be Jumping out so as soon as it does. That's GonNa scare you even more. I don't know what I'm prepared. I feel like I do a little better but I get your. I've seen you watch movies. uh-huh never prepared. You are never prepared you. Might you might say you love them. But you are scared to death of that but I love it. I mean you are the person that screams like literally screams not all the time just some types. Okay what about the time. The lights went out. Yeah that was pretty scary. You WanNa tell him the. Oh yeah so I thought I already thought I did at some point. But that's okay Yeah so I was watching horror movies. My friends and the power our went out and the lights went out but it was like right at the height of like a super scary movie and I that was is terrifying that was terrifying and the carbon monoxide detector when the power goes out like beeps and it was just like what. What is the beeping? But I'll let you know I'd not scream. Somebody also screaming. No there was another. We were watching what I watched the movie. That was I can never remember the name of it. But it's where they're split linking it's like cave or cavern or something like that but they're like underground at is a bunch. Your women so cool. It's such a good movie but first of all the movie that you can't remember a while ago but what was scary about it is the most terrifying part was actually like watching people S- plunking in a cave But anyways all I remember there was a moment where I screamed and then I felt so scared that I I made myself scream a second time to release the energy you because I was so scared out after I was like I screamed named and then I felt that he screaming all right. So let me ask you this if we have it in the car right now and we drove out to Nevada Stay Day at the clown motel okay in. We didn't have any paranormal activity. Would you feel let down a little bit. No I wouldn't I now. I don't know you know I'm I'm a believer but I will say in general I haven't I don't typically have a lot of things happen around me to people. I know what I'm with them. Sometimes a few things might happen But I don't so it wouldn't surprise me. Let's just say that there's nothing happened but that wouldn't stop me from believing that it would happen to other other people. While some people would be disappointed if they went all the way out there that this was part of their trip that they were taking just to see the paranormal and there was nothing being married. I gotcha so kind of you kind of want something to happen right but I am again. Well we'll get into it in the final argument okay. Interesting okay so last one So I also mentioned this in the story. There are lots of reports of the clowns in the lobby turning on themselves like they're ones that are mechanical and they turn on or moving on their own for the actually. The owner talks about different employees -ployees seeing things having things happen And then There's two videos. I watched that actually recorded the clowns. Moving yeah I saw one and It was a longer video and I tried to. I only watched like the first five minutes of it. I think it's the one I sent to you. Actually yes that one and in the beginning You know they were talking with the owner and all of a sudden the one clown moved yes and and they turned to him hummy rat and they said. How often does that happen in? He said it's never moved. Yeah exactly yeah. Yeah and then the other one with the two girls. They videotaped the the cloud that you mentioned in the and in the front the and the rocking chair the vote was moving. Yeah so there you go all right so we were talking a little bit. About what kind of person would open a motel right next door to a cemetery and at at that make it a clown motel the kind of person that wants to scare people the kind of person that would charge sixty sixty dollars a night because your rooms are going to be filled up pretty often because just the concept of it just the idea of how spooky it is looking at it. I think that this is all just smoke and mirrors like. I think that that thing that moved in that video like when I looked at face. I think it's moved before I think moves sometimes and I think that they're okay with that. That doesn't mean that paranormal normal. It could be mechanical though and that would not be paranormal. That is normal these that one was mechanical. Yes the other one is on a rocking chair. Yes so if something hit it it would move. No but the rocking chair was not moving like we could see in the video. It was is just the first thing I dunno I you know. I think that these things are made up. I think that these are paranormal people. That are there to investigate eight and I believe that they want to get a million views of their youtube video one. How many of us was on that one? I'm sure it was over. One hundred thousand. Yes that's when you start making money on Youtube when you have over one hundred thousand. So that's why I keep ghostly around one hundred and seventy seven even subscribers because I want to keep everything legit. I don't WanNa make a million dollars yet. I mean if anyone wanted to subscribe to Youtube Channel we would welcome welcome in a really tight list. I mean we only accept applications. No I'm just kidding but I'm just saying though that I mean you can kinda judge judge these things by how many people are interacting with it and That's a lot of interactions and it would be very easy to fake something like that aright. I don't know I mean I to me. It just seems like there's too many people too many times but what was weird to me is that there wasn't a lot of if formation about what it was opened. I couldn't find a lot of about like you found some stuff. I didn't find a lot. Most of the stuff may from finding formation yeah. I don't know it was weird. But most of the stuff I found was more recent which again was was interesting and fun for me with this episode? Because we don't always have that don't so it was. It was great. It was like no. This is like from three months ago. These people saw this crazy stuff. I really I really enjoyed that. That aspect of it but I still I mean and even though I think it's fake and I think it makes perfect sense that it's fake AAC. I still enjoy it. I still get something out of that. I mean I love to be able to suspend my belief life..

"motel" Discussed on Ghostly

"It gets bigger and everyone. Everyone is Prospers and makes a lot of money and everything's amazing won't people die Sorry Rebecca all right so when people die you need cemetery and Old Tuna Pasta Metairie was founded on May seventh nineteen o one with the burial of John Randall. Weeks we believe he was a minor. It doesn't really specify that so like minor meaning like a like a kid no or minor meaning like someone in the ground around. Yeah with the with the light on his helmet and searching for the silver okay. I hope I hope sure that kind of okay. That was dwarf. I think ah but they were minors. Okay okay. Whatever whatever But this cemetery only stayed open until April nineteen eleven so the just under ten years after the first person was buried in it but it amassed around three hundred residents that is a lie. I small town right in ten years. There's only one person has been buried there since it's closed in one thousand nine eleven. And that was Mr comes in Nineteen ninety-six. Wow because he asked for it. Oh Aw that was nice of them to let him do rooms. Yeah old mister comes in one thousand nine hundred two. There was a mysterious plague into Nepal. That claimed over thirty lives lives while what exactly caused people to die from. This plague is still unknown in old desert evening news article from in April Eighteenth nineteen o five. It is said that Dr seemed to think it is caused by unsanitary conditions of the camp. Many people decided to leave tone. Apo- had time. Hey Castle but some stayed to make more money. You know there's money you're willing to risk the unsanitary conditions on February twenty-third nineteen eleven. There was a fire in the tone of PA Belmont mine that took the life of another seventeen people. They were all L.. Buried in old tonopah cemetery so these kind of mining towns don't last forever usually and the mind started drying up in the nineteen twenties. And if you look at the population at this time it had less than half the people than it did fifteen years prior since the late twentieth century. This this is this was really interesting. Tonopah has relied a nearby military torn apart test range. As its main source of employment the military has has used the range in surrounding areas as a nuclear bomb test site a bombing range and a base of operations for the development of the F. One one seven nighthawk. Wow so I'm hoping that they aren't still using it as a nuclear test. Say Yeah but think about that in combination and with a clown motel so weird like I mean okay so so so far. We haven't even hit the quantum we'll tell you like you've just laid out the background. Yes so if you told me that like let me tell you the story of this town Topola and you give me the Tonita sorry Toda and you give me this history and you know all this stuff like the last thing that I would think you'd be like and the other thing they're famous for is the I think that's it. Sounds like toxic avenger. That's what it sounds like. So the clown motel history. This part is a little shorter order because there isn't much history the clown motel is just under thirty five years old. I would definitely say. That's one of the newest. If not the newest of our things there's no major history here and you're not gonNA be startled by any of these things and I'm saying here. The clown motel was founded by Leona and Leroy David in nineteen eighty five live. They wanted to open at this location because their family was buried in old Tonopah cemetery. The clown motel is right next door to the cemetery. Okay so having distance right so I can't. I don't know that's not where I'm at so it's like in my mind. If I'm I'm like all right we got the the money we got the loan. Whatever it is we're gonNA open a fund motel that people will want to stay at Where should we do it? Let's do it next to the cemetery. metairie where relatives are buried. Yeah I I don't know maybe we can talk more about that in the debates so they knew that they wanted it to be a clown base motel and they decorated the walls with their clown collection. The collection has since Grown tremendously although the rooms. Don't have that much clown stuff in them no. I think it's more in the lobby in the lobby. There's over six hundred clowns including Ronald McDonald. That greets you when you walk in. Yes but not like the Ronald McDonald. You think of nowadays. Like the like the nineteen sixties Ronald Older. Yeah I they ran the motel until nineteen ninety-five when they sold it to Bob per chatty I have not had a chance to practice these names it looks to me so at some some point I might get one wrong especially there is a A name of a there is. There's an ethnic name coming coming up that I might stumble on so per. Chetty finally decided to sell the property with one stipulation them so he was there for like twenty something years or thirty years or something like that he was there for a long time. Yeah He decided to finally saw the property with one stipulation. Though whoever bought it had to keep it as a clown motel that was really important for him. Yeah well because I think it was it. Do you remember did you. It was it. Wasn't that long ago that it was sold. It was not an in fact at first they wouldn't release the name of the person that bought it but they finally did a man name Hami a nod. Yeah I'm on a nine okay He conveniently He has a fascination for clowns. Well then there are you go and his and a family member of his said that they wanted to buy him a hotel but it had cost less than a million dollars So the price ice of the clown motel was nine hundred thousand. Wow so yeah. So he bought the he bought it and He lives there two. Okay yeah any you know works like all the time. So that's about all I have for the history of the clone motel. I all right. I like it. Well I wanted to say too. I think I read that. A lot of the collection is people send them clowns yes to add to the collection and if you bring him a clown you could sign it and He usually lets. You put it wherever you want. Cool shelves are pretty packed right. Yeah Yeah Okay Yeah now the one clown you were talking about. That tapped his foot. Yes that is a very very spooky ish clown And maybe that's GONNA come up and debate. Yes I think it might all right. So let's just get into the debate all right. Let's do it do it. Okay okay you first so like you. I also read an watched. Read articles watched a lot of videos so really enjoyed watching those. UC's Zuber fine yeah super fine And some of of them were paranormal investigator. People but others were not they were just people staying at the hotel so several of these experienced doors opening and closing on their own. Yes that was like one common theme that showed up There was one video. CEO where they came into a room and they found a cabinet door open and they were like wait. was that open before not away whatever. They weren't sure so they closed it. They left they did a bunch of other stuff. They came back. I should say a bunch of other stuff but they left. They were looking at some other areas. They they came back and another of the cabinet or is open now. That was just one story that I wanted to. I just wanted to pick one but there were several. Yeah I saw a youtube video. Were three guys. We're kind of making fun of it and The one guy a TV came on in the middle of the night and so he he already had his bathroom light on any any turned on another light. Yeah he was surprised. You didn't get much. Sleep is Kinda funny and then Another guy He he said he put a a bunch of stuff in the fridge. Because each room has a little disgusting looking bridge and You put some stuff in the fridge. He closed the door and the door open. Yes that's that's one of the other ones that I was thinking about. Yeah so what do you think about these Doors opening and closing on their own. You know what I am thinking. Is that the ground owned is kind of soft over there and I don't know how level the clown motel is if you've seen pictures of the clown motel. I don't know how much much money they invested in the foundation of this motel it is you know I and I reached out to the clown motel for comments and they I did not reply. Never heard anything from them so I can say whatever I want about the clown motel dingy. Well again I've seen some ones that at the newer videos it looks fine. I mean for a motel. It's okay especially the bathrooms were like. Yeah yeah well you know. I don't Nevada data at a mining town. I guess I wouldn't think that as being Soft but I suppose the cemetery is right there so it can't be that hard of ground she's like a desert and if you look at pictures of the actual cemetery. It's not your typical cemetery where you know there's grass growing there's no grass of course and they mark everything off by like stones. Looks like a really old school thing so I'm just saying it's possible that that that that could be a reason now I don't no no because I'm not there and even if I was there I mean even if I leveled the it did a level today as I said I think the ground is soft so I think it might move oval little bit. I'm sure it's not perfectly level though. So that could explain why some of the doors open and close another thing could be. These are probably not the most. It's expensive doors probably the most expensive cabinets. I'm just imagining okay. And actually tell you the truth thinking about some of the pictures I've seen of the rooms. There's not many cabinets in these rooms. No this was like it. He the owner the new owner latte these two girls they were. Are there investigating okay. And so he was letting them walk around in more of the lake behind the scenes area. That's where they saw the cabinets. Gotcha yeah okay all right so you want another one. Yeah okay So another paranormal activity that several visitors mentioned was mysterious knocking and footsteps. So the again those are things these are all things that I mentioned in my story But one story I read had a guest here. FOOTSTEPS ABOVE THEM But then when they asked the owner owner if someone was saying above them he said that there wasn't and another video had guests hearing someone knock on the door but no one was ever outside. Okay okay so for this one I would like to say that the tone of PA city itself the town itself advertises the clown motel as being haunted and advertise. The town is being haunted. Why would people live in this haunted town? I this is a publicity thing that they do. The clown motel brings them revenue that they wouldn't have people come just for the clown motel although most people are truckers that are like driving driving through the night in sixty dollar room. So they go for it but Yeah it's I don't know I you're saying it's a conspiracy. So the town like hires people to like stay to like go and they go around saying that. I'm not saying that at all what I am. I'm saying. Is that the town advertises. This is haunted. Venue when you go in haunted venues. Your you're going to be at a heightened alert. Gotcha I don't imagine that the walls in this place are very thick well again though but if no one staying above you and you we know you like someone knocks and it's I can't imagine the rooms are very big so it's not like it takes a while to open the door that like you wouldn't see like whoever had knock knock will. Knocking could be someone next door so they could knock next door you you hear the knock or could be the TV. I mean how many times you thought you heard doorbell or thought you heard knocking because you heard it on. TV interesting and well. I mean I'm honestly. Has that ever happened to you. Oh yeah no that has happened to me. It's crazy to think that this is a possibility but it could be somebody knocking next store and the person could be right there by the door. Let them in you. Go go to the door to look. Nobody's there then. The footsteps above you could be somebody walking to the other side of the hotel to investigate more of the area as I said they're staying there a lot of times because of the paranormal. Yeah so if they want to investigate these I guess I just think like if it was somebody you walking around above me that I would hear the footsteps like coming in and going out if it was that much that I could hear it and if it was somebody next door opening the door like I I would hear that because maybe the walls or that thin maybe but the doors might be quiet. I don't know I mean there's a lot of scientific reasons why this this could happen..

I I started to hear about the clown motel when we were doing research of some of the most haunted places in the US and the Clown Motel L.. came up and I was instantly like oh I want to do an episode on that. Yeah and then you sent it to me and I was like yeah. That's a definite. Yes yeah we just had had so many other things that we wanted to do as well so going into our second year we we now can do some of the stories that we really wanted to do which which is where the big stories you know these are I like doing some of these.

Yeah well what's not to love creepy motel that is next to an even crappier your cemetery and then add in clowns i. That's it yeah right. That's it I I mean yeah. I've had the chance to read a lot of cool cool stories and watch a bunch of youtube videos about the clown motel That retin link did a did a commercial for the town of Tonopah But now it's no longer on Youtube so I'm reading about it but I can't watch the commercial. Oh that's interesting. Yeah it was like tone APO- we're different but yeah there's a lot of videos out there a lot of stories. Yeah I would love to stay there but the rooms are kinda gross. Well I've actually heard there's a new owner which I'm sure we'll talk more about but They are redoing the room. So it's been redone. Yeah but the rooms are sixty dollars tonight to stay there so I mean it's never going to be a five star hotel. I guess that's true. It's not even a hotel. It's a motel so I mean truth in advertising rising. You're saying at a motel so so would you stay at the clown motor our backup. Who has a good question? I think think I would want to do one night. I couldn't do more than that. I mean clone scare me but it's not like to you too crazy though maybe after staying there would be well. Let's get your friend stacy to come WH- Z.. What she never even she would never even want to drive up? Shaded would have nothing to do with that whatsoever and are right so before we get into you all the spooky news of the clown motel. Let's see if there's any listener mail. Rebecca what do you have. I've got a story from one of our listeners. Adam Gibson Okay and he says a whole bunch of them so I I Y picked a couple of them that I thought were were pretty great. Might read the rest in a future episode mice. Yeah Okay so these encounters. He says happened shortly after his wife. Nina's father and his mother passed away. They passed away within ten days of that one. Another in two thousand eighteen so very sorry for both of you with that Okay so I one Nina China and I were sitting on the couch watching TV and we looked over at our dog jack and he was just staring nervously intensely at the laundry room which connected to to our garage. Then we heard the door to the garage open stay open for a second and gently close like someone came into the laundry room. Jack Act didn't bark like he normally would or anything he just kept staring at the laundry room door for like ten minutes and we could not break his attention in for anything which is not like him. I got up to check the laundry room and nothing was there. There is no draft no one in the garage and no draft in the garage. Yeah you know me. I love anything with animals seeing stuff right And then just one more kind of right after this Nita was sleeping on the couch and I was sleeping with the TV on in the bedroom. And I woke up around two forty five am. However when I woke up there was a dark shadow shadow figure standing over me on the side of the bed and I flipped out through myself from it so hard I threw myself on the other side of the bed? What I look back backup gone see? That's Vox Shoulda done this. So there you go. We got doors opening opening by themselves and creepy dark shadow figures which see previous episode shadow figures. Yeah okay well. I can't debate those. Because that's listener mail listener man specifically say pat have added. No No. They didn't well. Hello Yeah so I if you guys have any stories to share again they don't have to be long right as we just saw could. Just be some like weird creepy thing that happened to you or to someone you know. Send it in Info echoes lay. PODCAST ECHO. Yeah couldn't remember there for a second all right so it's less get into the episode. We've got an exciting thing to do. Exciting things The polls that's never never excited. Oh No it's always exciting win. No Oh well then. We don't need to do this part time for the polls roles it's time so it was fifty three. What did we talk about? Would we do. I'm sorry the polls were does John Wayne. Casey's go still haunt this earth. No well fifty. Three percent of voters said yes. All how come I am. Forty seven percent said no so is actually pretty close and I was well sure then a lot of our votes. I was watching these these polls as they were happening and every day I'd look at it and it was like there was one time I was in the lead really. I missed that I never was a great day for me. I wanted to stop the polls right. You open forever to a week but I posted a little late so I apologize is for that everybody but over the polls out on facebook yes the polls are on facebook and what's our facebook page. FACEBOOK DOT COM SLASH PAT guests. Yeah absolutely absolutely to just throw these random questions at you to see if you're prepared. Yeah you're prepare. I am because actually I didn't remember it right off up my head but I'm glad you were prepared. I got it all right. So are we going to do a ghost story story. Yeah you want to do the story all right. It's do the ghost okay. Imagine you're taking a trip across the country. One of those ones you dream of where you just have the time to drive and stop it any interesting place you find along the way when you make it out west. You can't believe what you find. A motel filled filled with clowns. How crazy kitschy and cool? so you decide to stay the night. The owner is super sweet and even walks. SUCI your room. But before he leaves he warns you some people have said the place is haunted. Probably due to the old cemetery cemetery right next door you laugh. That's so silly. It's getting late so you decide to just watch a little TV before bed while you're watching you hear footsteps above you. How annoying that the floors don't ask sounds a little bit later? You hear three knocks on the door. You go to look but no one is there. Maybe some kids are running around playing tricks though. You didn't hear any foosteps around by the door you go back to your show but five minutes later another three knocks again. No one is there. No no one is outside the door. You decide to go down to the lobby and report these people knocking in the footsteps above you. That just won't stop when you get there. The owner tells you that he's confused. No one is staying in the room above you and there aren't any kids staying at the motel right now. He excuses himself because he's he's got to go check on something but promises to come back and help you figure out what's going on C.. You stand there waiting surrounded by clowns of all shapes sizes and faces. It's it's a little overwhelming. something what are the clowns is moving. No that can't be you tell yourself but then another one turns on and you look down to see the foot moving on the large clown sitting on the rocking chair in the front of the display. At that moment the owner returns and everything stops breathing heavily. You tell him that you're sorry but you can't stay stay. The owner gives a sad smile and says that he understands. He goes with you to get your things you apologize to him again and he says yeah. No this happens a lot and then when you leave you. Don't look back. Wow okay again. Based on my research yeah fictionalized story fictionalized so made up. It's not the whole thing. Parts of it or fiction is made up based on a true story. It can't be based on a true story but it's still fiction. Action means made up just so everyone knows the ghost story right there made up. Don't use that for your voting. Okay all right. So why don't we just jump right into the history of the con- Motel. Let's do it so the clown motel is really not that old compared to all the other stories that we've told on ghostly it's probably one of the more I I think this is the most modern place that we have ever done a ghostly episode John. Okay it is located in tone Apo- Nevada at the midway point between Las Vegas and Reno Tone. Apo- has a relatively small population between twelve hundred and twenty five hundred people that was according to the two thousand ten census okay. That's you know the most famous censused NCIS right now. I think in order to fully understand the history of the clown motel. We need to understand the history of the town of Tone Apo- Nevada okay. So Nevada became the thirty six states joined the US on Halloween eighteen sixty four. I I thought that was really close. On Halloween and Nevada's climate was very harsh and and it didn't take well to settlers so there were some small Mormon and settlements that touched upon the Nevada's border. But nobody really wanted to live there. Poor Nevada right well that change. Though in in eighteen fifty eight silver was discovered in the area and after that little boom towns would spring up from place to place with the hopes of somebody finding their fortune there silver and then their heels daring room for both of us in this town. A skeptic uptaking believer so this continued until politics changed in about nineteen ten and then after that nineteen twenty. Things started drying up a little bit Gotcha so Before that happened around nineteen hundred saw the birth of Tonopah Nevada. So the story goes Osa prospector named Jim. Butler found some silver rich or in the area while he was searching for a donkey and wandered off during the night he took shelter near a rock outcropping and when he woke up he saw the animal so he picked up a rock and he went to go throw it at the at donkey because he was so furious and frustrated. Like Jason Down Wall. When Jim picked up that rock he noticed that it was unusually heavy? It turned out to be silver rich or in the entire area he hit stumbled upon became the second richest silver strike in Nevada. Atta history. Wow Yeah With the mining town that has hit its mark people flock to it right. Yeah so they WANNA have their chance of finding finding silver this also brings with it things needed for living and for visitors to come visit so saloons often come next I mean. That's the first thing you need right in town saloon. You need a saloon With the saloons comes gambling in town start to form if the silver keeps coming right because they got money to spend at the saloon money to spend gambling saloons had like rooms to you could run. Sure sure some people make more money with the gambling than anyone ever gets with the silver. Though would you be you. Yeah like you'd be more of the gambler than the silver over. Find Your. Oh Yeah Okay Yeah. I don't want to be out there in the Nevada heat as now So when you have a mass of people coming to any area what do you think happens. What do you think the most inevitable thing to happen is.
