Great moments

2004-03-10 15:07:15.875102+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

An entry in Daze Reader to the Colonel Angus SNL skit, alerted me to Saturday Night Live Transcripts. I set out to find my old favorites: Willie Nelson[Wiki] doing Great Moments in the History of White Trash, Part 1:

Carl Starkwell: Well, you know.. you drink more than my sixth wife. Boy, is she a loser!

Jolene Starkwell: Well, I'll make you forget all about her. What do ya say we drive up to Lookout Mountain and have ourselves a honeymoon?

(I thought for sure I remembered a reference to the old "Lookout Mountain Adult Hotel", but maybe it was just implied to us Chattanoogans) Part 2 and Part 3.

Oh yeah, I remember...there WAS a Lookout Mountain Adult Hotel....peep holes in the walls for those who like to watch...one hour rentals...BIG party place...drugs... until the "religious factors" raised a big stink and got the place shut down. Being a "Chattanoogan", I knew of and about the place...NEVER went there LOL

Yep. When I first moved to Chattanooga I snickered, once I moved away I realized that the closing of that and the fact that the relatively pervasive swinger's scene was pushed moderately underground was a lot of why Chattanooga hasn't managed to acheive some of the economic growth that I believe it's capable of. Instead of having this stuff out in the open the desires all get suppressed into the incredibly sleazy Rossville Blvd "adult bookstores" which get raided and busted every few years by the morals police. Thereby reinforcing the bad stereotypes on both sides.
