Strange Sounds Coming From My TV

Maybe you guys can help me figure this out. I got out of bed 2 nights ago at around 3AM to take a piss. The house was pitch black; Kellee, the girls, and the dog were asleep but I heard the weirdest noise coming from the living room.

It wasn’t loud but was screechy and continuous. I thought maybe the TV was left on and it was broadcasting an emergency signal or something. The TV wasn’t on and neither was the satellite receiver, but the stereo receiver was and the sound was coming from its speakers. The weird thing, besides the sound it was making, was that the stereo was set to the satellite input. I hit power on the satellite receiver and the TV to see if it was really on and I was just hearing some garbled audio. They both came on, the screechy sound stopped and an episode of I Love Lucy was on the TV. Normal sound and picture.

So how was the stereo receiver getting any input to reproduce if the satellite was turned off? Fuck.

Get ready for this. Last night I was startled awake by my youngest daughter standing next to my bed staring at me. I think I screamed. :) When I asked her what was wrong, she said “The TV.” I layed her down in my bed and went to check it out. Same shit. Weird fucking sound, just a bit louder this time. Instead of turning on the satellite receiver and TV this time I went and grabbed my laptop and recorded it.

From what I can tell, its a loop. There is a distinct beginning and end with about 35-40 seconds of seemingly random sounds in between. I edited it down to a single loop and uploaded it to my server, listen and see what you make of it. Honestly, I’m a bit freaked out right now and not sure if I’ll be able to sleep tonight.

I have been thinking lately how I would save myself and my family from a zombie apocalypse. What would I need to do ahead of time? Where would I go? How do I not only survive, but ‘win’?

I’m writing this blog post tongue in cheek, but if you think about the preparedness part of it, it could be applied to cases of martial law or pandemic. But for me, this is about a zombie apocalypse.
