I Won a Pop Culture Award

silver screenings pop culture award SindrElf

A few days ago, Ruth from Silver Screenings held The Silver Screenings Awards over on their website.

This is an award that they hand out to various bloggers they like, from time to time.


When it comes to awards in the blogging community, one has to be specific.

This is not a chain letter interview-award.

I do appreciate getting those aswell, as it can be fun answering questions, but I don’t think that those should have been given the name “award”.

How about “chain-interview”?


No. This is a more conventional award, with several winners in different categories.

And I won in the Pop Culture category!  Thanks Ruth 😀



Since part of the reason for getting this reward was my varied output of posts, I decided I would link to a few of my pop culture posts about various forms of media.

Of course, if you are more interested in one subject than another, clicking on a posts category tag should help you find even more of what you are interested in.

I hope you enjoy.

Top 5 Songs from ‘MoS: Level 2’

MoS Miracle of Sound Level 2

Back in February, I shared my favorite song from each ‘Miracle of Sound’ album.

This proved to be very difficult, as there are so many great songs there!

So I have decided to make a Top 10 or Top 5 list for each album, depending on how big the album is to begin with.

Here goes!


5. Nord Mead

A merry drinking song from the Nord warriors of Skyrim.

There is no better way to get your thirst up than slaying dragons!


4. Joker’s Song

A ballad sung by The Joker, to his archnemesis The Batman.

This song gives you a look into the mind of the best villain in DC Comics.


3. Life In Bullet Time

The Max Payne series is gritty neo-noir about the titular Max Payne, an ex-cop with a grudge.

This song mixes Max’s survivor’s guilt and self-destructive behaviour with the game-series iconic gameplay feature, bullet-time.


2. Shooter Guy

This satirical song showcases a lot of the clichés you can find in video game shooters, while still appreciating them.

After watching this, you can get a good idea about the experience of playing around 80% of all shooters.


1. Take It Back

InterRail 2010 – Part 6: Exploring Amsterdam


We spent the day after the concert by walking around Amsterdam, taking in the sights.



Amsterdam feels much more relaxed and calm than a lot of other big cities.

Much of this relaxed feeling comes down to how the inhabitants rely less on motorised transportation than in most cities, as there are many who opts for using a bicycle instead.

The popularity of bicycles in the Netherlands is probably somewhat due to the lack of steep hills in the country.


The bicycle parking in Amsterdam was packed!

Another cause of the sense of calm I got from Amsterdam is how nature is integrated into the city.

Trees and canals everywhere!


When our stay in Amsterdam had ended, I traveled on toward England, while my fellow previous servicemen traveled back home to Norway.

I would be traveling alone for the rest of the trip.


In the next part; Traveling to England.
