Default My Haunted House...

Yup, it's true....my husband recently purchased a keyboard from a co-worker that used to belong to some heavy metal band. Since that thing has come into our house, some strange things have been happening!!! My hand mirror falling in the bathroom with no-one in there, the TV changing channels on it's own...lights going off...

Then it got quiet for awhile, until a few days ago when I left the house...I locked the bottom lock & deadbolt as always (hubby was in the house). When I got home, the door was wide open...when I asked him why he left it open, his response was "Huh?". VERY strange!

Speaking to his co-worker later, I found out he ALSO had some strange things happening! So of course I had to THANK him for sharing the wealth! haha

SO........if anyone wants a keyboard CHEAP from Southern California, just let me know where I can ship it!!!

Very interesting.
Maybe after the holiday, things will settle down.

Who You Gonna Call? GHOSTBUSTERS!! (now you'll have that song stuck in your head all day!)
Do you know if the previous owner of the keyboard (from the heavy metal band) is deceased? Verrrrry interesting......

In line with what RD wrote, Jean, I think it would be a good idea for you to try to trace the origin of the keyboard. Some of these heavy metal rockers have been into some weird stuff, and who knows...? I'm not trying to spook you or anything <BG>, but it wouldn't hurt to check it out. You might find an untimely death in the previous board owner's past.

Somehow a keyboard does not strike me as the ultimate "instrument" of evil.

Those 80's bands were, like, totally threatening.


The Cars were hardcore, man. So were the Psychedelic Furs, Thompson Twins, Blondie, Thomas Dolby, Oingo Boingo, Duran Duran, Devo, The Cure, Men Without Hats, The Eurythmics, Gary Numan, Dead or Alive Etc.......

The real bad seeds, the ones with dead members likely to haunt you like the Ramones, The Cult, Sex Pistols, Guns N' Roses and the like, didn't use keyboards all that much. (well some members of GNR are nearly dead, and will haunt you if you ask nicely)

Well, I found out that the keyboard belonged to the lead singer of Metallica (I think he is still alive?). Maybe it just misses him very much, or they were dabling in some strange stuff when it was in his possession....

I don't like strange things going on when they're not supposed to! But we'll see what happens.....

I was not into those heavy-metal bands but I could definitely see the keyboard being haunted by Metallica! Maybe it was his home keyboard, as I do not think Metallica used a keyboard at their concerts!
Cruise Cynic-you must be the same age as me!! I still like some of those bands' songs from the 80's. Love the 80's Internet radio stations!! Even my daughters like some of them too!
