THIS IS A TRUE STORY
Listener Hugo and his family once visited me in Brooklyn. I had just returned earlier in the day from Ikea with, among other things, a set of plain red wood chairs. You see, we needed extra chairs to seat everyone at our dinner table.

Anyway, I had to put together the chairs in order to have seating for everyone, and the entire Hugo family, wife and two sons and Hugo descended on my Ikea boxes and started assembling the chairs.

The sight of this Norwegian clan in my living room cheerfully assembling Swedish furniture was an amazing thing to behold.

Oh and one more thing, I am sitting on one of those chairs right now!

Right on target for followers of this programme, I should think. And I saw that the shop is a WFMU record fair dealer. Somehow didn't surprise me. And the owner is very knowledgable, to say the least!

Yes, I can confirm that story. I think it's fair to say that we had some previous experience of assembling more complex IKEA furniture. And as they say, we survived to tell the tale! But for redoing the kitchen, we DID NOT buy IKEA stuff.

I got a self-build nightstand from IKEA some time ago. Managed to put the top surface of the thing on backward. It still connected properly, but once on, there was no way to take it off and reconnect it. Still keeps my phone and bedtime reading from succumbing to gravity, though.

I think "Cobbings" might be a reference to Bob Cobbings. Saw Jaap Blonk perform at Roulette in the 1990s, shortly after moving to New York. It was insanely beyond awesome

About Armand Schulthess:

"After running a women’s clothing shop in the 1920s and 1930s, Swiss native Armand Schutlhess went into government service. When he retired in 1951 he moved to his country home in Auressio, Switzerland.

Working with the idea of capturing all human knowledge, Schulthess gradually converted his home and large garden into a Gesamtkunstwerk (German for “an encyclopaedic or comprehensive artwork.”) He inscribed thousands of texts on to small, circular lead plates and the ends of varnished tin cans, then suspended them—sometimes with interconnecting ropes—in the trees and bushes of his garden.

He collected knowledge inside his house as well. He assembled handwritten notes about human culture and history into large packets, eventually assembling a vast library of his own bundled texts. He also composed illustrated books about topics such as geology and psychoanalysis, and collected books on sexuality, married life, and graphology.

Schutlhess died suddenly in 1972. The following year his heirs destroyed most of his collections, both in the garden and in his home. Only a few items were saved, and are now included in the collections of two Swiss museums—the Art Brut Museum in Lausanne, and the Museo Casa Anatta in Monte Verità."

I have taken only one trip to Ikea, with a girlfriend who purchased several things. Although some items were heavy enough to be secure in the back of the open pick-up truck and some were tied down....a box containing an upholstered chair was caught by wind, lifted out -- unbeknownst to us until another motorist alerted us -- and smashed to bits on the highway. The horror, the horror.

Unfortunately, Ikea makes the only under-cabinet lighting that is meant to be used over sinks. All others have somewhere printed on the box or in their instructions the phrase: "Not intended for use over sinks and stoves".

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/14/14 11:23am Alex In Illinois:

With Ikea furniture, I have actually found it more difficult to disassemble without damaging it. If you need to move your stuff to a new residence, it does NOT move well.

I think she pursued some AmEx replacement route for the chair's cost -- in any case we went right back in and got another one that day. And of course I applied my more standard, more obsessive, rope and bungee treatment for the long ride home. One of my sorta funny recollections is of a state trooper who'd arrived at the mishap site and was removing strewn chair guts and carton sections off to the shoulder of the highway.

It reminded me of something not very holy--something profane. Back in the 1980s, a rapper called Schoolly D had a number called "Mr. Big Dick" with a bunch of guys imitating women shouting: " Hey Schoolly! Tell us about your dick! Yeah, we want to hear you talk about your dick!". I guess he could not get any real women to shout that.
