Assembly of an Ikea Couch Times 16

What you’re about to see is about 31 minutes of couch assembling action, zipped up into about 2.5 minutes. I only increased the speed, nothing was cut out (except for about 2 seconds in the beginning.) I think it turned out OK. Below the video is some of the dialogue (it’s hard to understand because it’s sped up.)

emkid: I’m recording
Wife: Alright. Oh, your recording. Where?
emkid: Right there, behind you.
Wife: I didn’t see you.
emkid: Right there.
Wife: Oh! Oh Casey! You’re a really nice person. (excellent acting!)

emkid: I-Ping can you open me up a beer.
Wife: OK, yes sir.
Wife: Yes master
Wife: Come on hurry up.
Wife: Yes, master.

emkid: Oh, shit. It’s still recording.
emkid: I can still make it.
emkid: I can still make it!
emkid: I can STILL MAKE IT!

Can’t Get Microsoft Software from Microsoft?

I had been using a copy of Ulead VideoStudio 8 that I got with a video capture card to edit my most recent movies, but I wanted to do the increased speed thing on the movie above. I heard the lastest version of Windows Movie Maker could do that, so I went to Microsoft’s website to download it. Microsoft’s site told me that all I needed to do was download service pack 2 (that’s right, I haven’t done that yet, if it aint broke…) I actually don’t know how to download service pack 2. My system is in Chinese, and any time I try I get tired of reading through the Chinese.

Well, I ended up downloading it from (link to Movie Maker). I found it strange that they would offer it, but not Microsoft.  Version 2 is pretty cool, plus now it’s in English (yay!)

    Nice job on the couch. Now if you could only work that fast when you come and clean up your sh#@ in the basement. The fire inspector is coming again and we were supposed to have that cleaned up. Oh, well…..
