There used to be a phenomenon in Norway where the title of a lot of American and other international comedy films were translated into Norwegian as “Help, Something Something”. I thought it might be funny if I translated these titles back into English.
In my The Worst Episode of Frasier video, I briefly mentioned my love for the farcical Halloween episode from season 5 of Frasier.
I figured that after making a video about my least favorite episode of Frasier, I should make a positive video about one of my favorites as well.
In the video I refer to the Halloween episode as a comedy of errors, which was originally a William Shakespeare play. The term is now the name of a subgenre of farces which focuses more on misunderstandings and less on slapstick than a typical farce.
The last few years have been a wonderful time to be a Spider-Man fan.
So I figured I’d make a video essay talking about my favorite Spider-Man movies, video games and TV show.
I recently played all the Dishonored games and DLC back-to-back, and I really fell in love with the series and its creators at Arkane Studios.
Douglas Adams is my favorite author. His brand of comedy has inspired and delighted me ever since I discovered The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy science fiction books in my early teens.
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Norwegian co-production of Sesame Street, I made this short documentary about the history of Sesam Stasjon. I’m very excited to tell you about Alfa, Bjarne Betjent, Max Mekker, Leonora Dorothea Dahl, O. Tidemann, and Py, who all live and work at a small train station in Norway.
It’s fascinating where the winding roads of history can lead you once you start heading down one of its paths. In this video, I journey from the video game Among Us becoming massively popular in 2020, and end up at Norwegian and British explorers racing toward the South Pole in 1911.
A few years ago, I shared my favorite song from each ‘Miracle of Sound’ Level album.
I’ve since made a Top 5 or 10 list for each album (depending on how big the album was).
In the last entry of my gaming backlog countdown I went from 30 games to 25, and checked off five games I played by myself. Two games on the PlayStation 4, and my last three games for the PS3.
Among Us is an online multiplayer deduction game from 2018 that became massively popular in 2020.
While the gameplay is inspired by party games like Mafia and Werewolf, the narrative backdrop is inspired by Ridley Scott’s Alien film from 1979 and John Carpenter’s The Thing from 1982.
