Computers lose value and functionality over a just a few years. I have an apple iBook and I love it. I used to love my old computer...but things change.

Music: Clem Snide - Evil Vs. Good


  • you were enjoying that entirely too much ...and so did I.

  • Oh, man, Josh, you crack me up...

  • LOL. Too funny! It seemed like it was hard to destroy! I liked the part where it is dark and you can just see the silhouette of you throwing your laptop up in the air. Brilliant! Hey, your Apple iBook looks like mine! Hopefully it won't have such a violent end. Great video!

  • I have often wanted to do similar things to my printer.

    I'm glad someone got to live out the fantasy! :)

  • ha. it's like that scene in office space when they take the printer out to the open field and just wail on it with baseball bats.

    d$%n it feels good to be a gangsta.

  • I agree.
    It's 'Office Space' to the extreme.
    See if you can't get a refund! That computer looks pretty defective!

  • You should have done that to your old car!

  • As I watched, I was secretly hoping you'd fill the sucker with firework dust and get pyro wif it. You did! Thanks for proactively reading my mind.

    On a more eco-friendly note... too bad you don't have a FREE GEEK there -- http://freegeek.org

    You could have donated it and they might have been able to fix or recycle the poor old guy. Not quite as entertaining, I know.

  • Reminds me of the time I put my TRS-80 Model III, from Radio Shack, on a charcoal grill, poured gas on it, and lit that mother up! Ah, what fond memories.

  • Ah, good old Toshiba Tecras - my company used to have a fleet of those. Josh, you did the right thing!

  • I think if I were to do this video, I would have shot it. Of course, I am not a gun-toting guy like I used to be back in the day...

  • that joke was so cheesy but I LOVED IT. hahahaha.

    By Blogger annie!, at 1:13 AM, July 08, 2005  

  • Very cool wallpaper. Did you put the old computer next to the new one to scare it? Now I have to find something to murder with a hammer, that looks like fun.

  • Too cool. Best vlog entry of the week!

    My wife says you look like Topher Grace, but nicer. I guess you get that a lot.

  • as a Psychologist I have to ask ... how long have you had this tendency to blow up, drop, and beat things? ... just kidding ... another entertaining one ... creative violence is my favorite kind ...

    By Blogger Richard, at 3:07 PM, July 08, 2005  

  • Awesome! I love the sparkler. At least the laptop can go to laptop heaven knowing that it's last task brought joy to many.

  • fun times. i did something similar to my car when it was time for it to get towed out of my driveway...wish i had shot some video of it.

    anyway - when i watched this i thought i've never considered blowing darts or rubbing a burning sparkler something that "has to be done" but now...well, i thank you for some creative additions to my revenge resources.

  • You totally went Office Space on that mofo!
    Oh, how I enjoy destruction of obsolete electronics.
    Nice one.

  • I'll have to watch that every time my computers act up on me...very soothing.

    By Blogger Devlon, at 5:06 PM, July 10, 2005  

  • wicked! i love to do this kind of thing and it's been far too long, so i'll live vicariously through this. the darts are a super sweet method!
