VIDEO: Julie & Brandy In Your Box Office #2: Paranormal Activity

Hello friends! It seems like just yesterday that Julie & Brandy In Your Box Office Episode One – Gay-vatar dropped into your lives and blew your brain to bits OF LAUGHTER!! And now it’s time for Episode Two: Paranormal Activity, edited by Riese, in which Julie & Brandy rent Paranormal Activity, watch it, and subsequently have feelings about it!

Julie Goldman and Brandy Howard are the Matt and Ben of Lesbian Movies. They are a sensational acting/writing duo that are trying to cause a sensation with their sensational, lesbian romantic-comedy, Nicest Thing.

Since no one wants to make their movie or cast them in anything, they feel it is their duty to harshly judge everyone else’s work; based on a sliding scale of rage, bitterness, lesbianisim, and lack of any real significant training.

  1. When I saw this movie in theaters, Father Jew and I spent half of the movie grabbing each other’s wrists so we could fling each other in front of the demon if we needed to flee to safety. It wasn’t as scary when I watched it again at home, but it is SO TENSE IN THEATERS, and I think if you had a good sound system/dark room to watch in, you could replicate that.

    I loved it, and I was afraid you guys were going to be like “It wasn’t that scary!” but like they said, it’s not scary till you’re alone in your room at night, going “OMG WHAT WAS THAT??” And it turns out just to be your cat or your vibrator or something.

  2. I remember after seeing the midnight to this, I made my girlfriend come stay the night with me. Zombies I can deal with. Demons freak me out. Even when they’re fake demons.

      • as long as you’re not special like me(who thought the movie was for reals for at least the whole movie and a few hours after the movie) it’s not AS scary as it was when i thought it was real..haha

  3. OMG.
    The rating system? I don’t know what to say…
    I watched this movie with a guy I never realized I agreed to go out with, but I did it anyways ’cause he seemed cute and I thought I’d give him a chance. Turns out, he was an arrogant, homophobic prick who I ended up fighting with. I see him every day. He’s in my class. He hasn’t given up. Oh, and I don’t like scary movies (though I’ll admit it was good)… which he was totally aware of.


  5. Julie- Want to U-Haul with me? I’m really good at baking and I have an awesome rack.
    Take your time thinking about it. I can wait. I’ll just watch this series on repeat until you get back to me. No worries.
    P.S. Did no one else notice the naked dude suit?

    • naked LADY suit, most amazing thing evahhh! we’ll put julie noting that the pubes are riding up to her stomach in the DVD extras

      • Ah, yes. On second (or eighth) viewing I was finally lucid enough to check for junk-type on the naked suit.
        I needed more Executive Lesbian Realness in my day.
        Extremely premium.

  6. I feel like the Motion Picture Association needs to adopt this rating system as well. Like “this film may not be suitable for children under 13 and/or people who can’t take more than 2 fingers in their vagina.” The only problem is then there would also be some sort of censorship and rating system for the ratings themselves. “The following rating may not be suitable for children without parental supervision and/or people who have not gotten to first base in the back seat of a car.”

  7. had to hit pause and tab over to my gchat w/ sarah fucking palmer to say:


    so hey, i really enjoy these two gals. really! rally! pretty sure we need to sched a slumber party and idk maybe brandy could wear those tiny little shorts i’m just sayin’.

    • I noticed (and laughed out loud) when Brandy made an actual fist and Julie didn’t… my first thought was, ‘you can tell who has *actually* fisted someone…’

      • i’m glad the three of us [and julie] know how to properly turn a regular evening into a fisting evening.

  8. The entire explanation of the ratings system cracked my shit up yesterday and now I can’t stop watching it.

  9. hahaha “Nacho” as in whose dog is this? nacho dog bitch back off. that just happened.

  10. this made me laugh so much.

    the high five right after the rating was my favourite part.

    so, how many times each time i watch this am i allowed to pause and go back to see more of the naked lady suit before it becomes a bit weird of me?

  11. I love the noise Julie makes after making the fist hahaha.
    Love this. So much.

    Seven layer bean dip.

  12. so so so so amazing!! Although not something I should have watched in a very public very quiet study area…I tried so hard to contain my laughter but I probably still looked like an idiot.
    I can’t wait for moooreee!!!

  13. They are my favourite people in the entire world. My god. It must just ache to be constantly so awesome.

  14. this is ALMOST too much lulz for me, but it’s not…it’s just enough. Next episode looks, uh..promising!

  15. I was watching them talking and thinking the whole time “THEY should make the LESBIAN version!” and… then they did. So funny! I had to rewind (was she wearing…?) EEK! I’m totally crushing on Julie Goldman.

  16. Oh god I saw this movie at a friends house and it freaked me out so much that I did have to take Ambien. Unfortunately the Ambien just got me high as a kite and resulted in a rather bad case of email-regret. The movie was awesome though.

  17. “If you like it, then you better put a finger in it.”
    These, are the words of my womanifesto.

  18. AHHHHHHHH! Dear Julie and Brandy: We should be best friends. End of story. You should come hang out with me and wasteunit. All we do is watch tv/movies on her couch anyway. Love Taylor

  19. Julie, I love how there’s a fucking Menorah in the background. Just hit my upside the head with your fucking Torah why don’t you?

    Srsly tho, LOVE YOU. And Brandy, you’re just how I imagined you from listening to the Gay Pimpin’ podcast (and that’s a compliment). You’re beautiful, hilarious, and I have this weird urge to become a lesbian. Unfortunately, that’d mean I’d have to get a sex change and both have and get near a vajine, both of which are deal-breakers.

    Can’t wait for your next vid, and for the podcast.

    Sexo, sexo.
