So today I’m not gon na make a shitty robot
but something that’s like, kind of the opposite
which is both very wild and conventional at the same time
because when you make a shitty robot,
you take something that’s like really sophisticated as in robotics
and you turn it into something terrible,
but I want to make something nice
out of something that’s like kind of cheap and boring.
Scott: I’m gettin a makeover?
You’re getting a makeover?
好啊 斯科特 我有很多电动工具和胶带
Yes Scott, I have lots of power tools and tape,
we could figure something out
Just like the little tuck in tape.
Cut tuck tape, No.
Uh, I’m gonna make three desks for the office upstairs
就用OSB 它也叫“噢 这种板子”
out of OSB also known as Oh, Such Board.
It’s made by wood flakes that are compressed with like wax and resin
and it’s just like… super cheap and common build material,
but when you look at them,
they kind of have like a nice pattern
I was thinking I would like paint the pattern
or like fill some of the wood flakes in.
Does that make sense?
Actually, it doesn’t matter if it makes sense
As long as you don’t stop watching the video.
Sounds like I’m threatening people.
As I said, I have power tools and tape
I’m just gon na glue this together with some plywood
because it’s a little bit thin and flimsy
I need to find like heavy objects
to weigh it down with as it’s drying
Just gon na put the current political situation on top,
or like movies where a loyal pet dies
I think that ought to weigh it down
Oh man, I love woodworking,
but whenever I have to sand something,
I want to give up like half way through,
which was the same sentiment
that made me drop out of college after just a year.
Okay, it was a bit more nuanced than that.
But the thing is I’m still paying off my student loans,
which also segues me into the sponsored message from Lumerit.
Yeah, I managed to go from sanding to college debt
in like two sentences.
I don’t know if that impresses you but it impresses me
I’m an easy crowd
Anyway, Lumerit is a service
that helps you graduate quickly and affordably
whether you try to go to college and you didn’t finish like me
or if you’re just worried about how much it’ll cost,
they help show you exactly how long your degree will take
and how much it will cost
And they make a list like step-by-step plans
to guarantee that you don’t take any classes that don’t count towards your degree
with online courses you can graduate from any school that you choose
and you don’t have to buy any books
and you can register for classes in just a few seconds,
and start at any time by going to lumerit.com/simone.
对 你没看错 就是我
which is me, in case you were wondering.
It’s fine, you can be up there.
I’m just gonna paint the – the desks,
I still have my hopes up that they’re gonna turn into something pretty.
Scott: That’s what I tell myself every morning.
I don’t know if I like it or not.
Man, I spent like five hours painting this
so I feel like I kind of just have to like it.
You know when you invest in so much into something
that you don’t have a choice whether you like it or not?
Kind of like the parent of a teenager.
Okay, I need to paint the other two desks
and they’re gon na be different colors,
so maybe that would look better.
Let’s just spend some more time on it
and then things might look different in the morning.
That’s what she said
Yup, it’s super fucking slow.
I just really like taking very basic materials
and that people kind of don’t pay any attention to
and trying to make them look nice,
like I love art made out of PCB.
You’ve got, like, a circuit board material and stuff like that works like
If somebody would just take a second and look at it and be
like hey, I can make something out of this
Got three desks,
三张桌子全部抛光 粘合 边缘也都弄圆了
so all three desks are sanded and glued and the edges are rounded,
I painted them and then put varnish on top
and here they are
I called this one Broken Ice.
This one is something to do with like a skin infection or like pus
like pussy blister
Is pussy spelled the same way as.. oh fuck
That might be too crude even for me
oh, let’s just call it like Skin Infection.
or like”Hudinfektion” in Swedish, so it sounds like IKEA furniture
This one’s forgot to bring a tampon to work
Also, I’m all like”the desks are done!”
but they obviously still don’t have legs on them
But I’m traveling to Sweden on Monday
to hang out with my family
And also I’m finally selling my house boat
so I won’t have time to finish them
You’ll just have to make do with really nice shots of them
standing on like a compost bin and a recycling bin
You may not call me,
not only the Queen of shitty robots,
but also the queen of high-end furniture,
I don’t know. I don’t know.
They’re kind of ugly but who isn’t?
I’ll post a photo on Instagram once they are done,
but don’t hold your breath for it.
