Light bulb problem

I can't seem to keep a light bulb working in my kitchen. They burn out insanely fast, including two in the span of about 30 minutes tonight.

Now, these were the cheap old school bulbs, so I'll try the new kind. I'm just wondering if it could be an issue with the wiring in our place. (I'm a renter)

Or it could be a haunting. It's that time of year and all...

Arcing occurs and it burns a tiny hole in the base of the bulbs letting the vacuum escape, and then the bulb burns out quickly. Try turning off the power at the breaker and then pulling the tab out so it sticks up slightly and then put a new bulb in it with out screwing it down so hard.
You don't need to flip the breaker. Be a man.
