Bunk Beds

The new apartment! It was late last night, but we recorded this video to show off the new place! Isn't it wonderful?! It is pretty cramped though…

Alex's Thoughts

This came as a bit of a shock to me, but it costs a lot of money to live downtown. It only starts to become affordable once you discard the concept of “personal space” as a fevered delusion brought on by spending too much time in buildings that are many times taller than the width of their own foundation.

But I can’t complain at all, really. When I was looking at apartments, I managed to find quite a selection of roomy and elegant closets available for less than a thousand dollars a month! I just needed to pick the one with just the right balance of claustrophobia and squalor.

I don’t want to brag, really, but I think I did it. I picked an apartment that says, “I’m a normal guy just like you, but I can afford to live life in the fast lane.”

So on a jarringly-unrelated note, new video! I do hope you fancy it. And if you do FANCY it, please remember to click those Like and Tweet buttons! They help drive traffic, which is good because traffic pays the bills.

Which leads me to a funny story, because we did actually get paid by Google for our ad space a couple of weeks ago! We got about a hundred dollars, which was great because that check will cover our costs for just over a month!

It’s a shame though, because that check took us over four years to earn. :-P

No matter though! We shall press on and continue to post new videos, comics, and general silliness! We will not accept boring mediocrity! We will only buy groceries when toe jam becomes an accepted form of currency!

And with that, I'm off! Have a great day!

ttyl!

ROFL!

When I stop laughing from watching it the first time I'll watch it again X-D

I'd rather waltz than just walk through the forest- Owl City

Yay!

Success! I'm so glad you enjoyed the video, Lilly. :)

Hehe

Excellent! X-D Though I am sorry for your lack of living space. Anyway, fantastic job on this one guys, I definitely lol'd. Even though I'm sitting in my car and the rain picked up exactly when I started the video. Thanks to whoever assembled the video, I was able to hear it perfectly anyway. :D I always look forward to your videos, and you didn't disappoint. Thanks for the laughs! :)

Ah .. personal space ... I can almost remember it ...

As a dorm resident, I sympathize. As a dorm resident with a roommate who wakes at 6:15 in the morning, I sympathize especially with Peter ;) . Get some sleep, invest in some nice earplugs, and remember that mold is natural! :D

Huzzah!

More enthusiastic comments! How exciting!

And Leela, yes, our “bunk beds” are actually in the broom closet. It's quite wonderful! What ingenious use of space!!

Yay!!!!

It's great to see new comedy from you guys again. Poor Peter. (That seems to be the usual comment, doesn't it?) Not that the bottom bunk would be much better.

The Curtain of Blockness?? I need one of those for when company comes over. Wait...I have one!

We should take our comfort from God's word, not from the circumstances of our lives.

Impressed

Seriously, I'm impressed with Peter's ability to fit up there/hold himself up. Also, he looks so cute when he rubs his eye. Squee. My "little" brother is adorable.

Everything looks perfect from far away.

It's actually supposed to be the Curtain of Blackness. Like, “Here be dragons!”

Haha, I was very very impressed with the whole performance myself. We both tried fitting into the top shelf of a couple of different closets. I kept getting myself nearly stuck, having a faux-claustrophobic attack, then coming down in a panic. Peter kept it together and really did it! :-D

It's his magical hair. It makes him special.

I had to watch it again. This video is just so funny and cute. It looks like Alex can't keep the impish little grin away just as he's getting into the closet.

Ais is right. Peter is way too cute rubbing his eyes. It's such a perfect touch.

Sorry about the Curain of Blackness. But really, shouldn't it be the curtain of Beigeness? Or Ecruness, or even Camelness?

If you mention toe jam publicly once again, I may rescind my membership. :-(|

Sweet Reality

I'm glad I'm not really sleeping up there… :P

Good idea

Yeah... It's too close the ceiling, and the upstairs neighbors might keep you awake.

CONFUSION

You caught us. ;)

Actually, it was pretty amazing… Yesterday, we moved into a slightly bigger apartment. So that would be nice, except now there are four guys here instead of two! :-D
