Mojave Super Eight

Dedicated to motels that advertise color television.

Whenever I get into the car around sunset, I want to keep pushing west into the Mojave desert. All that strange spiritual space dotted with cheap motor lodges that advertise color television. The remote bars with blinking neon signs that you can hear.
