His mother is so proud....clearly.
At first I was all "Heh. Lookit the goofy dork wanting a dumb custom keyboard."
Then the reveal of the goofy dork who lives in his mom's basement and she's borderline hoarder and he's trying to impress his borderline hoarder mom with his dumb custom keyboard.
It was like watching a rosebud open.
Well, poo. I shoulda put a spoiler alert up there. Sorry if I ruined it for anyone. I haven't had enough to drink today.
Which one of you is this?
Also, I'm so sick of keyboard nerds and their three hundred dollar, no-letters, mechanical keyboards.
Also also, Hoarder Mom's premise 2 is false, which leads to premise 3 (actually her conclusion, but whatever) being incorrect.
I'd totally spend the or so to get an ACTUAL Model M and a USB adapter, because I used them all through college and their reputation isn't just hype. And I say that as someone who is not a keyboard nerd at all.
Personally, I spend a lot of money on keyboards trying to find a good ergonomic experience that balances comfort, productivity, and pain relief. I can't stand keyboard enthusiasts though. One time I saw a couple of people get in an argument about Filco vs. WASD based on one of them having inferior stabilizers or something, but like, those two keyboards are pretty much identical except for the price (WASD costs more).
Wait, would that make JHMF my mom and am I fapping to my brother?
I know this is years to late but that was supposed to read "I'd spend the 50 dollars or so" but PoeTV sometimes eats stuff if you use dollar signs.
Also last time I checked model M keyboards were more like $100+ if they worked well, and I never actually bought one because there are a lot of better things to spend money on (also the alcoholic, retired public defender who lived downstairs from me at my last apartment left a perfectly good Gateway AnyKey out with the trash a couple years back, and that's close enough).

He had a more "nefarious" purpose for buying the keyboard: To show it to his mom, who is confused/doesnt give a shit, its a keyboard.

What a house.
He sounds like a muppet.
Wait wait wait "Given the number of keyboards I've had in the dishwasher"
Why does he need to wash his keyboard in the dishwasher? Repeatedly?
I want to see more videos with "Furhead."
They remind me of an amalgamation of poeTV users and a few of the more notable exhibits.
There's a third brother named "Keykeeper". Furhead seems alright, but this Bill kid is directly on that point of the spectrum that I find endlessly obnoxious.
They remind me of people I knew growing up. I'm sure their arguments are frequent, petty, loud, short and quickly forgiven.
There's something very compelling about Furhead. I don't know quite what it is, but I think the rest of you sense it, too.
It's called "fapping" Homie, it's okay, we all fap to Furhead.
Wait wait wait, so Bob's Burgers was right? "Sloppy Bear" is a real thing?
I think it's more to do with the fact that we see a lot of ourselves, and our friends, in this guy and his family. For example: ChrisChan, in that he's clearly past 30, yet still living with his mom in a hoarder-house. Ulillillia and OZ, in that he is endearingly enthusiastic about obscure electronics. Memedumpster, in that uxwbill is probably you. JHMF, particularly the mom with the cat. Gmork or Francis, in that he is fat. And so on.
Furhead has the most self respect on display here.
Those pool cues in the cue rack are in suspended animation awaiting the day when the pool table would actually be used to play pool.
We sure this isn't a scene from the next Rob Zombie film?
They're having fun. I like them.

I'm guessing that you found this when looking for UNICOMP vids? If not that, I have no idea.
That's one of those houses where if you walk in, the best thing, however rude, would be to just back right out and then pick up speed.
Who was it that said that you can always find something awesome on YouTube by searching in [mundane thing] collection? Maybe this was from searching on "keyboard collection" or something.
I did. I was looking at a video on Adafruit about turning a Model M to wireless.
This came up in the related vids.
Haha, I thought Furhead was the cat at first.
I paid for a keyboard once and was pissed they were out of ones.
She reminds me of the short lived Zach Galifnakis character "The Pretentious Illiterate" https://vine.co/v/MXXldeZzLxA
This guy's videos get recommended to me once in a while, I follow a few other channels in this community of hoarders. They all like to go to charity shops (or even schools) and bring home various computer junk fairly indiscriminately. But each has a special interest in something weird like fluorescent lamps or calculators. Bless them all.
Also note the old camcorders on the desk. A lot of these guys collect/hoard those too.

Mom doesn't get what the point is; bro gets in sick burn near the end.
