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. 😀
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:
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. 😀
I’m a paying supporter of this channel on YouTube, and also follow TLW on other social media as well. The YouTube-channel just hit 1 million subscribers, but there can never be enough so go hit that subscribe button, and watch and like their videos.
There are also videos of hyenas and black leopards on this channel.

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.
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:
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?
A really cool tune I first heard in a TV-show called The Blacklist. It was at the end of the last season 3 episode.
Watching and listening to David Attenborough is something I’ve done ever since I was a little boy. He has been with me as a grew up, became an adult, and even today he still with me in this journey called life.
His multiple series covering flora and fauna has always been a remarkable view on how diverse, and sometimes complicated, everything on earth is.
Netflix’ Our Planet is his latest series of which he is the narrator. I looked forward to this one as well, like with all the others, but this series is very serious, and it’s showing us footage (proof if you like) on how our planet changes due to climate change/global warming. It’s depressing to watch obviously, and these are things we’ve known about for decades now.
It’s a good series, with high quality footage of a lot of things never shown in this way before. For example, the use of drones gives us an extra dimension in several of the scenes.
Like Attenborough is saying, it’s not too late if we change our ways right now. Check out THIS video, at OurPlanet.com, of David Attenborough explaining what needs to be done.
It seems ESO is more popular than ever. I’ve been in some really silly queues in the last few days. This one is the longest one so far though.
