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.
This is a video essay adaptation of my Advent Calendar TV Shows article.
In Scandinavia we have a tradition where each year the television channels air shows with a Christmas theme, that has a new episode each day between December 1st and December 24th.
Indie folk rock musician Jonathan Coulton turns 50 today, so here’s a 30-minute documentary I made about his career.
This is a video essay adaptation of my Universal Monsters article.
Universal monster films are some of the best early horror movies there are. Join me as I take a look at these movie gems, and gush over the great work of Bella Lugosi, Boris Karloff, Claude Rains, and James Whale.
This is a video essay adaptation of my Why You Should Play Games article.
There are numerous physical and mental health benefits to gaming, but these are seldom on my mind when I decide to sit down with a game. Instead, what motivates me is to experience other lands, other worlds, even other identities. All from the comfort of my own living-room.
