    I love the whole decor! Especially the rotating bar! Just close your eyes and smell the stale cigarette smoke!

    That was magnificent, despite the fact the motel rooms made me physically uncomfortable just looking at them. The low ceilings, dark garish colors, shag carpeting.....shudder.

    It's gone now. (I am a HUGE Lileks fan. Been reading his site/columns since like 1999.) I would have KILLED to have just visited The Gob even once. The height of tacky and epitome of hideous! LOVE.

    I bet a lot of "gobbling" was done at that hotel.

    I want to start my own no-tell hotel -- The Crafty Canoodler.

    In all honesty, during that period, most of those types of films were filmed in either San Fran or New York City. Or wherever Bob Crane happened to be staying for the night.

    It is now. But the early films, from what I've seen, were done by counter-culture types and failed or struggling legit actors. Believe it or not, the actor/monologuist Spalding Gray was in one of these films -- and a pretty disturbing one at that. New York had its own subgenre - I think they were called "roughies". San Fran's were more lighthearted.

    This is my favorite comment when they were showing pics of the "office":

    On the other hand, look through the door: those chairs are original. Those
    were chairs for people who sat at the bar and watched a moon landing, baby.
