Paranormal Hacktivity

  As some of you may or may not know, Bryan's family owns a townhouse next to his own that he and his wife help manage while his family is away. Well, in the weeks leading up to Halloween, there have been a ton of mysterious murders there, and because of it, they can't seem to rent the place out.
  So in the spirit of some post-Halloween hijinks, and fueled by watching a Paranormal Activity marathon, the two of us decided to stay in the townhouse and investigate these potentially paranormal murders ourselves.





















         So Brandon went to bed. And Bryan sat on the couch and played Angry Birds until he got tired. And nothing interesting at all happened that night... or at least that's what Bryan thought, until he spoke with Brandon the next morning.










          So Brandon went back to sleep, and Bryan went back to Angry Birds. And again, nothing even remotely interesting happened overnight... or at least that's what Bryan thought, until he asked Brandon how his night had been.














So was your Halloween as lame and uneventful as Paranormal Activity ours was?

  1. Ha! That pretty much sums up every Paranormal Activity movie. What confuses me about those movies is, why aren't the ghosty-demons ever amorous? You'd think before murdering they'd be mad horny. Possession, then sexing, then murder. That's why those movies are so unbelievable...aside from the thinly veiled premise of videotaping everything (a camera on an oscillating fan, really?).

  2. After Hurricane Sandy, a boring Halloween was welcome.

    At the risk of sounding out of the demo aka old, I watched "Anchorman" for the first time the other night, super drunk after the annual chamber of commerce dinner. I couldn't help but notice, before I passed out, his broadcast close, "Stay classy San Diego".
    Is that the source of inspiration for your close? (I won't tell)

  3. I did nothing for Halloween, I turned off all the lights closed the curtains and pretend I was not there.

    The first Paranormal Activity movie did freak me out a bit, I know very sad.

  4. Haha! Awesome! Glad it wasn't just me that had a lame/uneventful Halloween.

  5. You sure got the crap paranormal activity movies, those things really need to die already haha and yeah mine was just as uneventful in a much more uneventful way haha

  6. This is incredible haha and parodies the weirdness that Paranormal Activity is. It takes so long for things to kick in with the door only opening and closing and the bed sheet moving a little for what seems like ages. I still think I might check out the new film but I don't know, the premise is getting a little old, I loved what you did with the two windows thing haha.

  7. Yeh, I can see where your life is pretty uneventful. The chick in the closet looks fun and interesting though. Perhaps she has some ideas how to liven things up a bit.

    Off topic, love the townhouse's art work. The pig-in-boots picture is to die for. (perhaps, that was an insensitive way to say that)

  8. Oh I don't know. I'd say that my Halloween of watching "Halloween Wars" on the Food Network was pretty wild.

    Then again, Halloween isn't until Monday in New Jersey so there's that, too.

  9. Wimps!

    When you said you were going to bed, I was hoping the next shot was going to be of the two of you next to one another (hands on top of the covers, of course), sharing fears in bed.

    I am so let down!

  10. Terrifying. I think I just peed a little at my work desk.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Did you do a E.V.P. session? That's where the real evidence is. "Swoosh."

    "Did you hear that? It sounded like it said I wan to kill you! Listen to it again."

    "Swoosh."

    "It definitely just said it wanted to kill me!"

    I've only seen the first Paranormal Activity movie. I hear the rest are just like the first one....boring with the last 30 seconds being scary.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Love the bathtub o' blood 'n gore, but the piggy with the rain boots and the blood-filled toilet were even better!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I didn't do anything for Halloween and I haven't for years really. I would probably have been tempted to spend the night in that place though. I haven't seen paranormal activity either but yeah I've heard that the only good things that happen are at the end.

    ReplyDelete
  14. This was absolutely genius. I was riveted, even if there were no ghosts.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Wow them in the end! :) The last 30 seconds rocked.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Would have rather spent the night in the haunted townhouse than what I actually did for Halloween, which was work...

    ReplyDelete
  17. I had a dream last night where I lived in a really weird house, and my brother said he saw a ghost in the wall, and as I walked up, I saw it. But it looked just like Sean Connery, and then I woke up and my alarm went off.

    I got to write to Mr. Connery and tell him to never wake me up again. He is not needed.

  18. It's been a pretty crummy day, but you guys managed to make me laugh- for that I'm grateful. I'll also say that your Paranormal Hacktivity was way more scary than the last Paranormal franchised piece of garbage they released. Yeah I went to see it. I'm 4 movies in now, I'm in too deep to climb out of it at this point.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Take that back. Paranormal Activity is terrifying. I did my normal routine. I stayed in, sat in a dark house, drank wine, and watched The Exorcist and Amityville Horror. I tried to watch Psycho, but I fell asleep. It was awesome. I love Halloween.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yeah, mine was pretty uneventful as well. I went to Red Robins and got a new burger off the menu. The brger tasted just like any other burger. Worst Halloween ever!

    Though, the bottomless fries were delicious. I highly recommend them.

  21. OOOHHHH scary!!!! My Halloween was a bit more eventful because I had 23 teenagers at my house for a party. Talk about scary!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. The Hubby and I played to keep the heathens away from our house. He cranked up the amp and I beat the hell out of the Beast. If the doorbell rang, we didn't hear it.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I stayed in and packed... for my trip to Thailand!!!!!! (see you... err, talk to you... ummm, read you (?) in a couple weeks!)

  24. I played tf2 on xbox then went to bed.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Never saw any of the Paranormal Activity movies. Never will. I hate horror films, even the lame ones freak me out.

    Halloween was pretty good around here. Just the usual Trick or Treating with the chiddlers. Good times. :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Two windows on either side of the room!? In a townhouse!? Nah, I'm not buying it. Must have been a ghost.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I stayed at a hotel once that offered demon sheet pullers. Totally not worth the extra cost.

    ReplyDelete
  28. The 'activity' part of Paranormal Activity is grossly overstated and borders on false advertising.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm one of the lame people who like Paranormal Activity. Yep. It's true.

    I love the dead plant in the background - it kept catching my attention for some reason LOL

    I'm going to vote now!

    ReplyDelete
  30. How long does that voting thing go on? I need to read it...

    ReplyDelete
  31. I kept waiting for something incredibly scary to pop up, like in horror movies. Too bad your Halloween was so uneventful or you could have scared the heck out of me just now. I did absolutely nothing to celebrate on Halloween since there is nothing to do around here, except go to a fake haunted house that costs $40 a ticket. At least your "haunted" house was free, even if it was totally lame and disappointing.

    Also, I'll vote after I read your book. I plan on buying it once I have money to..you know.. buy it.

  32. Thank you for the laughs - and I will go vote for you. Funny, the bed/window thing reminded me of a time when my little brother and I stayed at our grandparents' house. There were shirts hanging up to dry and the window was open. The next day, my brother (who was 3 at the time) went in wide-eyed and told my dad, "SHIRTS WALK!"

  33. Paranormal Activity is just like American Idol (and other similar reality TV shows), only the last 30 seconds matter.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Pretty much summed up Paranormal Activity xD

    I voted for you!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Haha, I want you guys on my next ghost hunt.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Haha I'm not going to lie but the woman in the closet scared the living shit out of me, and so did Paranormal Activity 3, but we don't need to go there. This is easily one of the funniest things you guys have written, and trust me when I say every thing you write is funny.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Sorry, but I am so confused on how to vote for you guys. I first tried to look for your book in the humor and horror categories, no luck there. But I am now confused as to how to type in your book for voting. Any help? >.<

    1. Hi Lia, thanks so much for your support. We really appreciate it. Let me see if I can help. First, follow this link--->http://www.goodreads.com/choiceawards/best-humor-books-2012#73817-Best-Humor
      Next, when you land on the Humor voting page, you won't see our book pop up in the nominees cover list. But, you should see a text line (and empty box) directly beneath the list of cover pictures that reads "Write in Vote." If you type in our book name there, it should auto-populate and find it for you. I just canceled my vote and tried it again, and it seems to be working fine. So let me know if you have anymore problems. Thanks and cheers!

    2. Hey B&B! I realized what the problem was. The text line/empty box is non-existent for non-registered users. I logged in with my facebook account, and I managed to write in my vote afterwards. Thank you :)

  38. I love scary stuff, but at the same time, am also a big baby. Paranormal Activity scared me real bad (and sadly I'm not joking!) Still, though, I would love to spend the night in a spooky house. With a big strong man, of course :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. My Halloween was probably even more boring and uneventful. Isn't that just grand? This was nice though, cheered me up.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Ha! I barely remembered it was Halloween on Wednesday, because I'm still stuck without power. Good thing I didn't scare myself though (being alone in the cold dark), because that happens sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Halloween was non-existent for me thanks to Sandy. I see what you did with that photo's eyes... I hate that about pictures!

    Completely unrelated.. I tried Shock Top's pumpkin beer a few weeks ago. Holy delicious.

    ReplyDelete
  42. My Halloween was so lame I kind of missed it. It was more like a Byebyeween. That's never happened to me before. It's spooky if you really think about it....

    P.S. I've had to rebuild my blog, fellas. Hope you're both doing fine.
