Claims of the Normal #11: 2011-03-23

- Published Wed, Mar 23, 2011 by Arkenor Oakshadow, Breki Tomasson and Petter Mårtensson

I called in Petter and Arkenor again, and great podcasting was done!

This week was a good week; we talked about William Shatner’s 80th birthday, Petter’s tattoo, his upcoming trip to Iceland, Breki’s upcoming trip to Botswana, Arkenor’s upcoming trip to the grocery store, Everquest 2, Rift, and an unexpected upcoming challenger to World of Warcraft. On the topic of World of Warcraft, we brought up things coming up in 4.1 and whether or not it’s as exciting as we had hoped.

Also, we wondered a bit about Joseph Gordon-Levitt and what the hell may be going on there when it comes to his casting in the upcoming Batman-movie. Also, The Hobbit and the utter failure that is Earthrise.


Claims of the Normal

Claims of the Normal was the first show to launch on the CSICON Network. Originally intended as the only show to run on the website csicon.org (the 'con' in CSICON stands for Claims of the Normal, after all), it quickly became the launch vehicle for so much more. Breki and Petter started the show, and got Arkenor on board, and it all just went from there.

The show, over time, was replaced by The MMOsketeers, starring Petter, Arkenor and Teppo, as well as Instanews, starring Breki and Jack. None of these shows exist in their original form, but the legacy created by Claims of the Normal lives on.
