DUDE! GHOST HUNTERS!
So, there's this place in Weston, called Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum. Mell actually lives in Weston, and yet she completely failed to mention this place. Not that I would try to break in, completely for photograph/exploration purposes. Nope. Not me. Never!
Anyway, last Tuesday, B IM'd me, freaking out that Ghost Hunters was filming there, and asked if I wanted to go along. So yeah. We went.
We stood around outside the gates until three in the morning talking to the security guards. And some random old guy that just happened to be walking by at midnight. He works at Dominoes and used to be a tour guide at the asylum. He also does civil war reenactments and knows everything there is to know about West Virginia history.
Apparently Steve is terrified of heights, so he drove ahead while everyone else flew, so he was the only one there. So they were just filming the outside of the building and the drive up. We were just waiting out there So at three, I ended up riding back with B, Heather, and Joe. B and Heather fell asleep. So I kept Joe company. Damn me for not being able to sleep in moving vehicles!
( Anyway, I got pictures!Collapse )
Random facts: This place is the biggest place they've filmed at. And, sandstone records sound. I'm highly doubting the validity of this. I spent a good portion of last night researching sandstone. Found absolutely nothing about it being able to record sound. But according to Mr. Dominoes, that's why you can hear people screaming when you go into the building. The whole thing is supposedly made of sandstone, and when it gets to the right temperature, it plays back sound. Huh.
And, on Friday, Heather went back, and I guess the guys were freaked that there were fans at the filming. Dude, it's Weston!
