In this episode of the Geekare Humanum podcast, Sindre and Renate discuss: Theodor Kittelsen paintings, Anubis: Dog of Death, The Lonely Island, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.
This is a video adaptation of my The Art of Theodor Kittelsen article.
The Norwegian artist Theodor Kittelsen is my favorite painter. During his career as an illustrator he defined the look of trolls, Norwegian folklore, and The Black Death in Norway. The video includes some of his best paintings, and explains what makes his art so great.

Today is my 30th birthday! I’ve long had a plan of making a sort of autobiography composed of several blog posts on this site. This week, after writing a bunch of new posts, I finished that goal.
In November of 2015, me and my girlfriend Renate visited my maternal grandmother in Ålesund, Norway.
Renate had only been in Ålesund briefly one time before, but I had been there plenty of times.
In the spring of 2005, when I was 14 years old, I had my church confirmation.
Most people in Norway become part of the Church of Norway when they are baptized as a baby. The Confirmation is when people are old enough to chose for themselves that they still want to be part of the religion.
Here’s a few pictures of me, my sister and my grandpa. They’re from a boating trip we went on to Ona Lighthouse when I was seven years old, in 1997.
Christmas Eve is right around the corner, so Tor (the Norse god of thunder) has decided to dress up as Santa Claus for the occasion.
For this year’s Easter holiday, I and my girlfriend Renate visited Flåm, Norway.
Flåm is a small town located in a fjord in Hordaland county, just a few hours from our home city Bergen.
Anubis is all dressed up for the 17th of May, which is the Norwegian Constitution Day.
Every year on this date we celebrate the national holiday of Norway. We dress up in our nation’s folk costumes, wave the Norwegian flag, sing our national anthem, and participate in parades.
It is soon The 17th of May, also known as the Norwegian Constitution Day.
This is a day for enjoyment and patriotism, much like 4th of July is for Americans.
