Hi Guys! Who wants to hear an embarrassing Kim story??
Avatar 7:10pm emily, all alone:

thanks, howard--I feel much better seeing you all here with me.
Avatar 7:14pm TehBadDr:

I'm always up for an embarrassing story, but am currently mesmerized by the show.

Avatar 7:16pm emily, all alone:

hello, hello, new arrivals!
Avatar 7:16pm PsychopathJimFields:

Tell the story. And then dread your own vacation :D
Avatar 7:17pm emily, all alone:

@Jim: ha! oh yeah...I AM going out of town in 3 weeks. Better be careful...

Former Essex County Executive James Treffinger carried out his illegal activities in one of the Overbrook Asylum buildings
Avatar 7:25pm emily, all alone:

@Marc: oh no way! really?? what's the story there??
  7:28pm melinda:

Tuned in late but this is great.
  7:28pm Marc15:

I believe he held secret meetings there with those he conspired with. He ultimately plead guilty to obstruction of justice, mail fraud, and soliciting an illegal $15,000 campaign contributions
Avatar 7:29pm emily, all alone:

hi melinda! welcome anyway :) it was a fascinating trip. I'm so interested in old, decaying buildings and their history.
Avatar 7:29pm emily, all alone:

@Marc: yeesh. what a sordid history that place has...
Avatar 7:30pm emily, all alone:

those millipedes are freaky as HELL, man.
  7:32pm melinda:

I like the crunchy sounds of walking.
Avatar 7:32pm emily, all alone:

@melinda: me too! I was just thinking that. I love when we get good background noise.
Avatar 7:38pm emily, all alone:

if you're listening with headphones you can hear the echoes of the pump house...
  7:41pm melinda:

The Satanic Panic! It was real in the 80s.
Avatar 7:41pm TehBadDr:

This is some great material Emily!
Avatar 7:42pm emily, all alone:

I had no idea! I find that so fascinating...I was never warned about Satanists as a child!
  7:43pm Marc15:

I am more afraid of the Right Wing Christian Fanatics than I am the Satanists
Avatar 7:44pm emily, all alone:

@TehBadDr: thank you!! Wheeler was a great guide, and Kim and I find this stuff so fascinating--can't get enough of ghost stories and old buildings...history! yeah!
Avatar 7:45pm emily, all alone:

@Marc: amen, dude.
  7:47pm Marc15:

@emily, all alone I'm gay and those Right Wing Christian Nuts would want to "cure" with torture
Avatar 7:48pm TehBadDr:

Hey Emily, does Wheeler have a web site? You should post it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Here's an abandoned psychiatric center near me. Haven't explored it. Its days may be numbered. I think there are plans to develop the acreage for houses. www.untappedcities.com...
Avatar 7:49pm emily, all alone:

@Marc--I totally hear you. I grew up in the south and that stuff is still very alive and well down there--my mom is gay and I know she's been threatened...it's still a very real concern in a lot of places.
  7:49pm kate:

I am not a hooligan.
Avatar 7:49pm emily, all alone:

@TehBadDr: he does! let me find it...
Avatar 7:49pm TehBadDr:

Avatar 7:49pm emily, all alone:

Avatar 7:50pm emily, all alone:

@KenfromHP: yeah, that's happening all over! there's one back in Asheville, NC that's meeting the same fate, I believe...
  7:51pm Marc15:

@emily, all alone On Pride Day, I FINALLY came out to my friends. They said they were proud of me
  7:52pm Marc15:

  7:53pm kate:

The crazy thing (sorry) is that the building was really beautiful.
  7:54pm melinda:

New Jersey is fascinating.
Avatar 7:54pm emily, all alone:

@kate: old, crumbling buildings so often are, I think...
Avatar 7:54pm emily, all alone:

Isn't it?? I am falling in love with NJ!
  7:54pm Marc15:

  7:56pm kate:

There was a orphanage near the Catholic high school I attended and the stories about torture in the basement (told to me by one of the orphans who attended the school) haunted me for years.
Avatar 7:57pm TehBadDr:

He's a real interesting guy. Kudos!
Avatar 7:58pm Will from Seattle:

I remember seeing the remains of an old asylum of sorts near Morganton,NC with my grandpa & uncles a few years ago. It may still be standing

Little known fact: the neighbors on either side of me play bagpipes. All I can do is bring my phone out into the yard when Jonesey & X.Ray are on a mic break.
  8:03pm kate:

I tried to get my parents to adopt him. I was a bit idealistic. I still think of him at times like these. Joe, if your listening, still thinking of you.
