Ways to Clean Your House

Postby Matt » 25 Apr 2011, 15:23

Whether it be due to a party, or sheer laziness, you'll have to deal with the mess eventually.

Yay, an "X ways to Y." :D

Did you guys buy ad space at the Escapist? Your "No Rules Means No Pants" T-shirt ad showed before all the videos I watched today.

EDIT: Let's try again. Experiments. They work, kids.
Apparently there are no ads at the moment except the T-shirt ads on the LRR-produced videos (LRR, Unskippable, Daily Drop); do you get to specify what filler ad goes up when they're out of other ads or something?

Saw the ads as well, and I enjoyed the video, as I always do with X to Ys.
And I can relate to the messy situation.

1. Was that the best quality version of the Katamari theme you could find, or was that on purpose?

2. That magazine...

Great X2Y, as always. Although, you guys may not be good enough at being messy.

Where was the location for 'Redefine the Norm'? It hasn't been in a video before, right?

The future glasses were a nice touch.

Nothing says "from the future" quite like horribly contrasting neon colors and late 80's fashion trends.

I am going to be a massive geek and find minor fault with the command line one. There are two issues. One your command 'sudo rm -r *.*' will not remove write protected files. Two your pattern will only match file and directory names that have a period in them. I know I am being pedantic.

Who else though you should have shot this video right after you shot 'Ways to Relieve a Hangover'?

What would be the correct command line to remove all those items?

Also, more cat broom necessary.

Code: Select all

sudo rm -rf *


However this will not remove any hidden files or directories (ones that start with '.') so you need this command to really clean out a directory while you are in that directory.

Code: Select all

sudo rm -rf * .*


But it is usually easier to go one directory up and remove the directory you want to clean up.

Code: Select all

sudo rm -rf directoryname/


Usually when cleaning up you want to be a bit more careful than just deleting everything.

This actually was the command used.

Also, Egg Carton is too big for that Katamari! You need smaller items first!

Good stuff. Some of them were pretty obvious, but well executed regardless. I liked the message from the future and the roll down banner of the clean room. Summoning the wizard was priceless.

Great editing, very tight. Which is weird because this seemed longer than usual, but it's no longer than any of the last few videos. Maybe it just seems that way as I'm going through the archives. Is the target length for a video still 3-4 minutes?

Is the TV that sweet-ass plasma James got a while back?

I thought the cat looked really uncomfortable with the situation. :(

Summon a wizard was my favourite. Or blindfolding everyone. Paul's expression when James nicked his glasses was hilarious.

That looked like Disgaea 3 on the table. Was someone actually playing it, or was it just there for extra clutter?

Mmm, catbroom. Annika doing his best Garfield impression just might be this video's win moment. That or the Katamari; thanks for getting that goddamn song stuck in my head again.

You assume correctly. It is indeed my new place.
