[beep] the intro.
Let’s just get into it. A couple weeks ago,
“This looks pretty swag.” Over 1800 of you agreed,
which is a little ridiculous. If you don’t know what swag means,
Urban Dictionary defines it as “the most used word in the whole
[beep] universe.” Apparently, it also means
Secretly We Are Gay.
Who knew? The mosaic tile bird bath,
originally posted over on Me and My DIY, this thing is made out of DVDs.
DV what? I think I still have a few of those
somewhere. Oh yeah, here we go,
House of 1000 Corpses,
classic, Pineapple Express,
Adventure Time, Womb Raider. Wait. Hold on, Assablanca?
How’d these get in here? These aren’t mine.
Corinne, are these yours? All right, moving on,
the directions say to take some scissors
and cut the DVD in half. Then it kind of splits into two,
so you remove the outer
plastic layer, and then you take
the reflective side and you cut
those into small pieces. All right, I did that,
and it looks like [beep]. I cut them into smaller pieces,
and they turned out even worse. I don’t want to glue these
onto anything. All right, I’m going to try this
out on some old CDs and see
if it gets any better. Katy Perry? Hold on.
You’re not going anywhere. All right, these CDs
are a little bit easier. No extra plastic layer to remove
or cut into, but still they’re turning out
like [beep]. It wasn’t until about 8 to 10
discs in that I realized the whole secret is you’ve
just got to cut these [beep] things
super precise, super slow. Only then will it not
look like [beep]. Applying this technique
to the DVDs didn’t really
help so much, so I just stuck to the CDs. And finally, things are looking up. A small tip: Cutting CDs
[beep] sucks. End of tip. Hours later, I finally had enough
tiny, little CD pieces to start work on my bird bath. I got myself a good-sized
saucer platter thing. I grabbed some heavy duty glue
and began adding CD pieces one after one after one after one. Once I was finished
with the bottom, I glued pieces around the edges
and along the sides. What had to be nearly
18 hours later I was finally finished gluing
[beep] to this platter. I left it out to dry overnight,
and the next morning busted out
the grout. Now, I myself have never used
grout, so I followed the drawn out
instructions the best I could and ended up with, I hope,
the right consistency. I don’t [beep] know.
Looks okay, I guess. Once mixed, I began to spread it
onto the platter using
a putty knife, but that kind of sucked Then I stole this thing
from the kitchen because that’s what they used
in the pin, but that really wasn’t much
better. It finally came down to me
just using my hands, which was the best option. I filled in all the spaces,
made sure it was smooth, and then, with a damp cloth,
wiped off all the CD tiles. I feel like after I added the grout
it muddled some of the color
a little bit. That and I think DVDs
are a little bit more purple-y
in color. Whatever the case,
I think it looks awesome. I placed it in the downstairs
garden, added some water, and now to see if this thing
actually works. Boom. Yeah it does. That is one swagalicious bird bath. Those guys are having a blast. Four things: First thing, subscribe. ThreadBanger is about to hit
a million [beep] subscribers, and that’s just [beep] insane. Second thing, like this video up. Even if you didn’t like the video.
Who cares? It’s just a stupid
button. Third thing, leave your pins
in the comments below so I know what the [beep]
I’m doing next week. Fourth thing, [snipping sound].
