When I was doing this video I was thinking the mask was I was wearing was good enough when using the spray can. Boy was I wrong. I had to switch out mask for a thicker one but it still didn’t help. Those fumes were so strong I had take a break. Just to let you all know, if you do something like this or anything crazy please pre pare. Don’t just do it because you might get hurt.
This video I was supposed to talk about this crazy story about rats and roaches. How they team up and will invade the human populations through your sewer traps but it just wan’t funny. I wasn’t too confidence in it’s humor that I was nervous in saying it. When I was practicing it it sounded so bad and I decided to take it out. Not much to say about this except that it wasn’t the source of the sewer smell and I don’t know where it’s coming from.
AC 21 video:
I’ve decided to make Robot AC 21 a permanent character on my channel. I was thinking what’s the best way to make a video fun to watch. Having some kind of commentary going on. But then what about showing how to do things? I would need to talk and having a commentary will interfere with that. So that gave me the idea. Why not have two videos. One video will be about how I fix things and another video with commentary by Robot AC 21. This is great because I like putting crazy things in my video and that could be the commentary video and leave the serious stuff on the original video. This also allows me to have more content on my channel. win win. I hope this works. Ah screw it, I’m going to make it work.
Commentary video by Robot AC 21:
So the original video of this was so boring I keep thinking how could I make it better. I started to think what if my video editing software was alive, what would it think? That’s where I came up with Robot AC 21. He could make comments about how dumb my videos are or the mistakes I make. I can criticize myself pretty harshly so I thought this would be perfect for a robot. He’s also going to be arrogant but never ever able to back himself up. Basically he’s all talk.
This is probably one of the most boring videos I ever made. I tried to add jokes but it didn’t work. I really didn’t plan anything for this. I was printing stuff up and ran out of ink. I was like, “Maybe I should record changing out ink and post it to youtube.” That’s pretty much the only reason why I did this video. Sorry about this, so sorry.
My HP mother board died. I didn’t want to film installing a new one because I was kind of frustrated but I did anyway. I was so glad I did because now I could tell the story of what happened to my HP motherboard. I was thinking how could I tell it so it’s a bit entertaining? Yup, you guessed it. Sock puppets!!! I think from now on when I have a long story to tell I’m going to bring these guys out to tell it for me. A few problems I ran into. The audio and making it funny. My camera was having a hard time picking up the audio. So what I had to do was use my cell phone. I downloaded an app to record audio and put the cell phone next to me and hit record. Later on I took the audio and synced it up with my video. It worked pretty well. Making it funny, well you should watch the video to find out how I did that.
I was reading online on measuring how high your ceiling is. I read a post where somebody mentioned that you should use a string and a wet tissue. I was like, “I have to do that.” That’s where the idea for the video spawned from. I wanted to show how not to do it, than show the right way. It would help stick the idea in your head better. During the shooting of this video I made a mess on my ceiling with all that wet tissue. It looked like somebody shot their diarrhea up there.
I was thinking what tip could I give a person about screws and nails and the idea came to me why not just show a nail vs the screw. Show the biggest advantages and disadvantages. Then I though I could pretend they are in a boxing ring and announce them as so. When I watched the video it didn’t look or sound right. So I add some echo effects, cheering and other sounds. I wanted to add a strobe light but my computer couldn’t render it. Computes what good are they for if they can’t be your slave.
This video I wanted to make it more interesting and play with some effects. The idea I had was to make myself teleport around the room when trying to get to my door. I thought it would be funny to keep missing my goal and wind up in different places. The comedy seems kind of forced but who cares, I’m not a professional comedian.
So I tried to prank my brother by having my nerf gun shoot him when he opens the door. I did this at the last minute and did not plan. This is why I failed. The setup was really bad and the nerf gun would not fire unless you push the door really hard. But it’s still a little fun to watch it fail.
