How long have you lived in Galveston, Lindsay?
For 15 years.
What makes Galvestonians unique?
Oh man, there’s a hodgepodge of people. I’ve never met any more amazing people as in Galveston. They’re the weirdest, artist people. You see the most beautiful souls I’ve ever met.
What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever seen on Galveston Island?
Well, one time I was walking downtown. It was like 2 or 3 in the morning. The building was closed and had bars on the front of it, but on the inside, there was a light that looked like an interrogation light. And it had this table and these 3-foot-tall eggs sitting at the table. One of them looked like he was sweating, and the other one looked like an investigator. It’s just random things like that that makes Galveston unique.
Did an artist do it? It was just enough to mess with someone’s mind, right?
Yes, it’s just things to put smiles on your face and that’s what I love about Galveston. Everybody here is so friendly. They get mad if you don’t say hi back to them. (laughs)
What’s the main reason why people come to Galveston?
We have amazing beaches, amazing people, and there’s a lot to do here. The vibe of this island is just so organic, and everyone who comes here loves it and they always want to come back.
Galveston is known for its ghosts. Is the history scary?
No, it’s awesome. Oh yeah, I’ve seen ghosts in my apartment. I used to live above the old Slices Pool Hall and Pizza Joint at 24rd and Market, right next to where Buckshot Salon is now. It used to be an old hotel back in the 1800s, and when the 1900 Storm hit they used it as a morgue.
