Concert: John Fogerty

Why not do something different and see John Fogerty, the man behind the music of Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR), when he’s visiting Oslo?

Yeah! I waited for tickets to be released and managed to get two really good seats at an affordable price, and with that I got my sister a birthday present as well. 🙂

The concert was a July 4th so that added a little something extra to the concert too. They had a ripping good version of the US national anthem.

Overall I had plenty of fun, and the ca. 2 hours of music went by in no-time. It sure was a hit parade with many well-known songs, mostly from the CCR-era, but he also did a bunch of kick-ass cover songs.

The complete setlist from this concert can be seen here: https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/john-f…

Go check out his tour and attend a concert if you can, or get some of his awesome merch: https://johnfogerty.com

Unfortunately he’s done with touring in Europe for now, but one can hope he’ll come back soon. 🙂

Concert: The Dogs

Due to some health issues I’ve put everything on hold… including concerts. Thankfully I think maybe I have gotten on top of those health things now, and I have started going to concerts again. 😀

It began with John Fogerty in July, but a video has not been added to YouTube yet. I’ve had some issues with my video editor as well, and figured them out just now. A video will appear tomorrow… at the latest.

Anway, yesterday was my 44th birthday, and I celebrated by going to see The Dogs who were playing at a local festival. I’ve only seen videos before and heard stories, so it was about time I experienced these guys live myself. It was awesome… and cold, so I didn’t stay for the entire show. Still what I saw was beyond awesome, and I will definitely catch these guys again sometime.

Check out their merch, music, and everything else on Facebook and their homepage.

World of Warcraft: WoW Classic

The classic version of WoW will be released soon (August 27th I believe it is), and yesterday we could finally pick 3 character names each.

This is what the queue looked like to get in not even 15 minutes after they opened up:2019-08-12 - WoW Classic Pick character names queue-Web.png

It’s over 7k in queue! 😀 2 minutes earlier the queue was over 10k – and approx. 45 minutes estimated time. Since people were only creating characters they weren’t logged on for that long I guess. 🙂

Steam Summer Sale 2019

The Steam Summer Sale 2019 has just finished, and as a part of the whole thing there was a race you could join. Getting achievements and buying stuff got you points which you could use to boost your team.

The whole race-bit was very buggy, so I didn’t get to do much. At the end of the race, however, I got all the points I thought I’d never get – and got to use them on some nice backgrounds, chat icons, and I even got a nice discount on a game or two because of it.

Team Corgi finished 1st, Tortoise on 2nd, and Hare on 3rd. I was on the Corgi team. 😀

World of Warcraft: Gnome Heritage Set

Heritage sets have been around for a while in World of Warcraft, but for the gnome race it was introduced in v8.2, which was released a few days ago.

I decided to just get the set asap since I like it so much, and here it is:2019-06-28 - Kebabnissen-Gnome Heritage Set Combined.png

Deadwood (2019): Welcome the fuck back.

The magnificent western TV-series Deadwood, ended way too soon back in 2006. A while back I was happy to read that the movie finally was about to be made, after teasing it ever since the TV-series ended.

I’ve just finished watching the Deadwood movie, and the cool thing is that it continues 10 years after the TV-show ended. Things have changed, but Swearengen (played by the always brilliant Ian McShane)  is still the same.

It was fun to see this movie, and it makes me wish even more that they had made many more seasons of the original TV-series. However, this movie give us some conclusion and a proper ending that the TV-show did not give us.

The foulmouthed Swearengen, and the rest of the foulmouths will forever be missed, but a binge rewatch is always just around the corner of course. 😀

Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr

Finally the new expansion for Elder Scrolls Online is out. I’m still working on some old content so I won’t get to Elsweyr just yet, but I just got one map left and then I’m ready for the Season of the Dragons.

Birds of Tokyo – Good Lord

This is my second lyric video, and it’s very simple since I used the original video by Birds of Tokyo, and just added and timed the lyrics.

As for the song itself, Wikipedia states that it’s about Ian Kenny’s (the singer) marriage ending. I think most of us have been in a similar situation, I can relate to it anyway.

Ian Kenny is the singer of Karnivool, one of my favorite bands.

…and since I don’t think I shared my first lyric video here on korp.no, here it is, the song Vakaren by Katatonia performed in Swedish:

Marilyn Manson – Cry Little Sister

The first video below is the fantastic cover of The Lost Boys theme song – Cry Little Sister originally performed by Gerard McMahon.

I’ve been listening to it a lot ever since it was released, but wasn’t aware it was released as a video too, so I decided to list up some of Marilyn Manson’s other cover songs as well.

I started listening to Marilyn Manson when Antichrist Superstar was released in 1996, and it didn’t take long until I got his previous releases as well. Sweet dreams (are made of this), originally by Eurythmics, was the first cover I heard by Marilyn Manson, and it’s still one of my favourites:

Personal Jesus, originally by Depeche Mode:

Some other covers he has done are:

  • Tainted Love by Soft Cell
  • This is Halloween from the movie The Nightmare Before Xmas (Danny Elfman)
  • I Put A Spell On You by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins
  • Suicide Is Painless from the movie M*A*S*H
  • God’s Gonna Cut You Down, a traditional folk song
  • Five To One by The Doors

…and there are many more! Maybe someday they all will be released as an album or two?
