    they called it the bates motel because it’s on sunset and bates

    ive lived in hollywood a long time and as long as ive been here it’s been abandoned

    11166040_10153239422183057_1967280028_n

    in the early days of the abandonment hookers used it as their offices

    later crackheads used it to do their business.

    after a while they boarded it up and it became the home for ghosts and bad memories

    the only time something pleasant happened near it was when the Sunset Junction Street Fair would rock out near it

    but then one thing led to another and greed seeped it followed by a flood of ignorance

    and the Sunset Junction Street Fair ended and the Bates Motel fell into absolute disrepair

    until last week when an artist had a vision to paint it all white

    even the trees. and now so many people have shown up to look at it in awe that theres bad traffic there
