Claims of the Normal #084: 2012-05-20

We’re back with another great episode! Your definition of ‘great’ may not agree with ours, but you’ll definitely agree that this show is great, no matter what your definition is!

This week, we talk about intellectual property rights, piracy and feeling entitled. Then we realize that this is Claims of the Normal and head over to la-la land, in which a discussion about the Mayan calendar reveals that not all is as it seems. After that, we head over to a more interesting la-la land, in which we learn that Icelandic politicians care deeply about elves. Petter reminds us of a Kickstarter to support, so go do that, folks!

Also, Superman has a bulge. I’m not sure if that’ll come in handy when he fights Wolverine in this week’s Deathmatch of Death and More Death, however!


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.
