I want to hear the story behind the wedding dress hanging in the bar.

'Castillo Del Diablo' sounds so much more menacing than 'Castle of the Devil'.

The whole of Mexico is becoming famous because of my house...

"We're going to Acapulco."
"Where?"
"You know, in Mexico..."
"???"
"The place with the tacky goth house..."
"Oh yeah, I heard of that place!"

"There were people who called themselves Satanists who made Crowley squirm. It wasn't just the things they did, it was the way they blamed it all on Hell. They'd come up with some stomach-churning idea that no demon could have thought of in a thousand years, some dark and mindless unpleasantness that only a fully-functioning human brain could conceive, then shout "The Devil Made Me Do It" and get the sympathy of the court when the whole point was that the Devil hardly ever made anyone do anything. He didn't have to. That was what some humans found hard to understand. Hell wasn't a major reservoir of evil, any more than Heaven, in Crowley's opinion, was a fountain of goodness; they were just sides in the great cosmic chess game. Where you found the real McCoy, the real grace and the real heart-stopping evil, was right inside the human mind."

NGL, between punk kids faking Satanism to upset their parents and adult atheists doing it for parody/political reasons, I wasn't totally sure that there were any real Satanists out there.

The quote is from a demon named Crowley (originally Crawley, as he was the serpent in the Garden) from the attributed book, not Aleister Crowley. The latter was the inspiration for the former, IIRC.

This guy talks just like Trump, same fractured syntax, rhythm, braggadocio:

"My wife and I had a meeting with some big time social media guy because it's getting bad with all these people coming round, trying to climb the walls, trying to get into the house from all sides," he said.
"And a lot of weird devil worshippers, all crazy things like that. I said, 'It's gonna get worse, you know what? This is gonna be a museum.'
"Everybody's screaming outside, 'Let us in. We'll pay you.' So I figured that's the goal. It's so intense inside. I want everybody to see. You don't do this not to be noticed."


is this something they teach in Real estate Developer school?

I wonder if he is actually the owner.  México reserves sea front ownership to citizens (and their fortunate hubbies).  There are other ways, but it gets messy.

You're welcome.  I think I have another 4-5 bottles (Malbec, Cab, and Carmenere)  in my "wine cellar".   I certainly enjoy them.

Most of the Chilean wine I have had was pretty good. A man who was very much like a second father to me has family there, so I have what I consider to be non biological extended family in Chile.  Bastards hooked me on Pisco, which I have to make a special trip to the warehouse type liquor store for.  They used to only have Alto del Carmen, which they appear to be currently out of...

Any idea if piscos call Barsol or Vinas de Oro are any good?
