Jake's Stressed Out by Wren's desk, so he built him a New One.Feb 27, 2020
It's time to clear this
desk. If we don't do this, your creative growth is in jeopardy. Wow. For years the rental has been running out of a beat up old door
desk. It has all these really cool accessories and gizmos and things like that, that it needs. , which he likes to have on his desk But I really can't stand cable management; the way it's a door that's supported by metal pieces really makes me think I'm going to make the ultimate Wrendered desk, a modded desk
builtspecifically for Wren. I'm getting excited about the idea, but it will just do it.
It will take a minute because I have to clean up all this stuff. That was easy. But Jake is upset by the flagrant use of... yes? Let's put a yes to light for the extra light. You can't wrap your mind well. Are these these things here My desk is C clamped to the legs The legs are the C clamp yes yes yes this is where our clamps went he is in love with this thing I mean everything from the history of it to the work it's doing I've already invested in it, man-hours I've just spent doing cool stuff on this surface, so let's preserve that you might remember last year I
builthim this huge electric skateboard That was super fun And he likes to ride on one wheel all the time we'll be incorporating an electric skateboard spot and wheel spot in here plus Bren has a three monitor setup and often works with two computers so there will be plenty of room For that.
Space to build plenty of space for gadgets, and we're going to keep the historical and sentimental significance of this desk. I will stain everything. I'll get a new stain and a fresh coat of varnish and finish So everything looks like it's one piece and the first thing I have to do is sand it all down We try to let me put the hat on what do you guys think of this hat? Do they like it? Because if they do, we will sell it. It hasn't come out yet. Don't run to the store Anyway, that's not what I'm here to talk about.
I'm here to talk about Friday's video. We are shooting a video that will involve Adrian, it will involve Nikko. It will involve our friend Freddie coming out of rock production. Adrian and Nikko wanted to do something that was a little more fun, a little more humorous. So they came up with this. ridiculous idea about how there are two policemen in a fight. They need to do the most ridiculous extreme reloads to take out all the bad guys. It's very important that both Nikko and Adrian work together to find the best way to shoot those sequences because that's going to make the whole piece hit the mark.
You can't work on this together, it will make the video not work. There's a girl tied up like Freddy standing there. He's like you only have five seconds, so he's coming In the door, I'm trying to do the ropes on the person that the kids like. He talked to himself as if some guys walked in. Bang bang bang. Freddy's gun locks up. Empty and pretty girls. so is going up and lengthening me? Shoot a guy at the hostage like he'd like more guys running in, we fight those guys and I'm scared. He is empty. He doesn't like a fancy yellow.
This is how it's going to be like an elevation game, of course, where we're on the same side instead of posing in neck school. Today, for the shot, it would have been a shot that sets the pressures. door, so the thugs are even closer, even more present than the second shot, would have been the first introduction of the character. Which probably refers to me. You see who you're dealing with. sweatin' Look I'm a close cop but I feel like the first one in the foreground We got to do something that hooks 'em like it's cool so I was picturing you sliding into the frame And then ending up like two dudes 'cause they're already in there and Bernie you already know reload maybe you know ice for the first one the first opening is like you're going into the action sequence and you missed like the first half Now we're entering phase 2 of building Ren's epic desk and today let's pick up some hardware so we can fit the world's largest electric skateboard to the front.
I'm going to put the board at an angle. An angle there. The question is how wide the board is. I would have to go. I'm going to on a desk I made out of doors I caught you Alright remember how I was worried the sides of the best one would be a little wobbly Yeah well that's not a problem at all keep that out of a can I got bones great look at this look at this feel how solid this is oh wow this is so sturdy. Oh no, I don't like to jump on him with your full force desk, Brenda.
It's just that this is the bone, okay. Let's move it up, right? And I want to talk about what he's seeing next because I realized something. There is no chance this desk will look pretty. I trusted you Jake, but don't worry Ren, you're pretty enough to make up for the ugly desk, and we're going to go straight to the feature, okay you crazy kids, let's rename the title of this video to Ren's extremely functional desktop mod. It has all the looks of this whole room in the middle. I got rid of the sink issue in the middle by adding the big support beam.
You know how it used to lean in the middle, yeah. It's a problem of the past, my friend, cool your knees. I will, you'll be fine. I'll run just for your surge protectors. Only need to deal with two sockets at the base of the desk? So it's going to be very easy to get things on and off your desk without fumbling around on the floor with cables and then up here. Underneath, right here, will be our cable management. He will be sick. Dude. Like me? I originally accepted the fact that the electric skateboard, the world's largest electric skateboard, was going to be ugly and non-functional, but over time it became beautiful and functional, we're doing the opposite here.
Well. It's getting more functional, but the more features we have, the less beauty we have. You can check out the electric skateboard video, just link under Jake when you started this. You promised me it would look pretty. the eye of the beholder my friend i don't want to tell you because i didn't break my promise it's going to be so functional it's going to be a beautiful thing remember those days when i used to shoot like the stevens moves your friends that was cool that's right yeah no just take a second . Well. Who is watching? Where do you get the body bags?
Here, yeah, walk around like there's no weights, turn around and agree, have a bag, yeah, and I like, like, come on, I end up with both of them making him have a gun, and I just go like him read the refills, which is the most challenging part of this. I've broken the action into small chunks so many times that it's not really hard for me like this, but the creative aspect of these things is really the real challenge, which is where my crazy recharge is. . How does Freddie Heaven recharge even crazier? What can that do? Especially when we have the rifle guys and he runs up to him and we try to reload the right of him what can we?
Do with him that special like or other great examples when Freddie and I start fighting over the gun how to do everything like trying to jam Megan and how to constantly block and dodge like you're creative in the moment and those things are really important to Let them surge. with Specifically Oh Snap you're drilling through that drill through the desk. This is Ren's highly functional desk. Mud, set That's scary, the house is silly, usually a hole from a drill, but these came through. Protection I don't know. I haven't fully understood it. He was more focused on how he was drilling than on the drill itself.
Well boy did you make the sizzle. So the key to a good cut is to do it from both sides and hold on. Don't look, don't look, get ready. Ren's highly functional Despot is now completely ready. You could join me on a giant skateboard, since the back of your desk is like the coolest thing. In fact, you'll know when you put it away on the other side because the walkway to the chamber room is right here. But only for looks. I have the wheels you need to start on the other side, but? My favorite features, okay?
You like to stop in the morning on your one wheel. Guess what the charger set you up, okay? That's my kind of pretty nifty parking spot. That's super clever. You have a power strip here and a powered ship here. I'm going to replace that green. Hey, it's still industrial and you don't have to worry about keeping it nice. Can you do whatever you have to do? Is the desktop complete? I think it turned out wonderfully. Let me show you what I did, first and foremost I rented like a smooth surface here on top. So I just sanded everything down real good after finding out the stain really wasn't going to take away.
I wanted to do it. go for just the full industrial look And I think that's really accomplished with the sanding I did here I was also able to preserve the Omega symbol Which is one of the things Renton liked about the desk I decided not to replace this monitor stand because it was well built and it worked fine. Next thing I did I used Carmichael's old door desk to make the actual feet of the desk. Now when I first bought them they were a bit wobbly. So I went ahead and put braces here to help stabilize the legs, plus I included a large cross beam that goes from one leg to the other does a couple of things number one, it stabilizes the sides and then number two, it keeps the desk from bend when there is a lot of weight. right in the middle i included an electrical hole here for the one wheel charger i included two different surge protectors one on each side of the desk now to make it as simple as possible i wired up the surge protectors which i know i He is friendly. from a surge protector by mistake But we're putting surge protectors on a battery protector that goes into a closed circuit So I think everything will be fine now He only has to worry about Unplugging a cable when he wants to die later obviously I included hooks for the electric skateboard, which makes it very easy to take it off and put it back on so you can use it as much as you want.
I included holes for the monitor here, which go straight down and then to both sides to plug in whatever electrical holes you have on top here, so I think we made great use of the parts we already had here anyway. We made the toughest thing. It is much more efficient. It's built for what the rental actually does instead of using the old C-clamps we used previously, which were obviously super rickety. The point of the giant board is that this desk could, in theory. Wren loves his electric skateboards to channel a super huge wall that Jake built into the world's largest Let's get to work Andrew yes we have important things to do I can't get distracted by this awesome desk gadget Pitch deck is ready.
Yes. What a beast, please. You do not know. I think the worst thing the internet is doing right now is making people believe that everyone else is an idiot, especially people who don't agree with them. Everyone's first reaction is someone who disagrees with them. It is like. Oh, you are an idiot. It's like the vast majority of people aren't really idiots. They just come from a different background. They have a belief system. They have different reasons. when they're professionals in their field it's like the worst mistake a person can make if Everyone stops just Amelie saying everyone else is idiots.
I think to make the world a better place, Eliza now chooses what songs she likes to listen to on YouTube where he doesn't like a song she doesn't know Fine and I flipped the song Fine
