Haunting Us While Still Alive!

Residual Haunting (defined by Wikipedia): Repeated playbacks of auditory, visual, olfactory, and other sensory phenomena that are attributed to a traumatic event, life-altering event, or a routine event of a person or place, like an echo or a replay of a videotape of past events.

PLEASE, SLOWLY RE-READ THAT MEANING ABOVE.

I think I might have a case for residual hauntings of the living. See if you might have some other examples that fit that meaning...








Is it just me, or do they make you feel like you're stuck in a freaking time loop as if they are the only characters left in the entertainment world?

DON'T FORGET LONELY ON A FRIDAY NIGHT TONIGHT AT 7 PM EST HERE ON THE BLOG

  1. sad thing is they have more money than i will ever see in my life, and this behavior is the norm.

  2. Even someone like me, who avoids popular culture like the plague, cannot escape these people!

    (Although I'm not really sure who Snooki is or why she's famous)

  3. Jeremy;
    It's like a dysfunctional family, the kid who is the loudest, acts out the most, causes the most drama, gets the most attention and rewards.

    Eric;
    You're not missing a damn thing and all of us still want to know why this disgusting Snooki creature isn't doing public service ads making a case for birth control in New Jersey.

  4. At least the Charlie Sheen show has been entertaining, sad, but entertaining.

  5. Yeah, Charlie. If it didn't involve mental illness and substance abuse issues, it would be a fun Hollywood bad boy scenario and we need a few of them because everyone is all paranoid by the paparazzi. It's too bad he's just a sinking ship ablaze against the ocean, which is striking to watch, but will soon fizzle out. I seriously hope he doesn't circle the drain like Anna Nicole and Michael Jackson with people afraid to say anything or do anything. You know your real friends when you're drunk, they get you home safely. He needs some real friends that can take over when he can't handle it. Sad scene, but admittedly in his manic phase he's genius--just like an insane artist.

  6. They make good stuffing for time loop.

  7. Yeah, damn residual hauntings--you just can't get rid of them once they're in the loop.

  8. It isn't a residual haunting but I remember an episode of the Night Gallery where a lady bought her dream house at a good price because it was haunted. As it turned out she was the entity that haunted the house when she dreamed.

  9. I've always loved that twist. Wrote a post about whether you can haunt yourself while alive. I know my sister left a residual at our home while she was alive and so I think it's entirely possible. Makes you wonder what the next person living in your house picks up. Just so long as it wasn't your midnight raids of the fridge in your boxers, I guess that it's okay. My residual would bore them for the most part. It's me typing, typing, and typing some more.

  10. One of the most tragic things about our culture is the deification of celebrity. I think if humanity was wiped out by a gamma blast or something, the cockroach scientists of the year 2 billion will find our stuff and believe we literally worshiped them.

  11. Hahaha. Aaron;
    You and I think alike so much, buddy! Yeah, I gotta say that I thought they might find an edition of "Twilight" and think that was our Bible. Just finding women's skeletons with silicone might be baffling. They would postulate they were some kind of important objects the woman must be buried with because they were beloved.
