3 decades of Hubble space telescope

While we wait for the Webb space telescope, we still have Hubble, and the vast achievements it has made in its 30 years of discoveries.

On April 24th 2020 it celebrated 30 years in space, and here are some appreciation videos from NASA, ESA, and the YouTube-channel It’s Okay To Be Smart.

Bandcamp.com waiving their revenue share every first friday of the month May-July

It’s so cool that Bandcamp.com waive their provision from sales for 24h. I managed to get plenty off my wishlist and into my collection. 😁

Like the tweet below state, they’ve sold for $4.3m in the first 14 hours.

They will waive their revenue share every first friday of the month of May, June and July. It’s music release day, so that’s extra cool. Also, if there’s something you want to pre-order, do it when they have these waive days, and also wishlist things and buy them during these days.

Wanna check out my collection and/or follow me on Bandcamp? You can find the link on the right side here under Follow me.

Concert: Madrugada

I put this video on YouTube quite quickly after the concert, but I’ve had some issues with korp.no and kinda forgot to share it here. Hopefully my site issues has been resolved now, I will do a QC later.

Madrugada had a reunion tour celebrating the fantastic album that is Industrial Silence (1999). On December 7th 2019 it was their first of four concerts in Oslo, and it was awesome.

Madrugada was and has always been a great live band, where the music is the main thing. They certainly played around with some lighting and Sivert Høyem is wearing his discoball-jacket, but the music is their true strong point. We’re all missing Robert BurĂĽs of course, but Cato Thomassen is a brilliant guitarist and is filling the big shoes after Robert masterfully. I also saw him with Madrugada when they played at Oslo Spektrum in 2008, so I know he is capable and then some.

As for this video, it’s the first song of the concert, Vocal, and unfortunately the audio is a bit messed up. Still, it’s a long one, and the audio is quite okay and sometimes pretty good even… so I decided to upload it.

Ihsahn – Stridig (2019)

Ihsahn (of Emperor) just dropped this little gold nugget of a song. I was late checking out his solo works, but it’s all awesome, despite being very different from Emperor.

I’ve seen Emperor live once, and Ihsahn a couple of times and both are extremely good and professional in a live setting.

Oh – and the man really know how to play his guitar! The guitar playing is actually crazy good. 😀
