Claims of the Normal #086: 2012-06-03

48 mins - Published Sun, Jun 3, 2012 by Arkenor Oakshadow, Breki Tomasson and Petter Mårtensson

It’s that time again! I sit down with Petter and Arkenor and record a show.

This time around, we talk about a very weird cleaning fairy, the fact that aliens do not want to eat us after all, and much more. Petter suggests the texts about the Temporary Autonomous Zone by Hakim Bey and the webcomic Ensign Sue Must Die. Both are good.

In this week’s Deathmatch of Death and More Death; Team Petter randomly picks Agent Smith to be his champion, while Team Arkenor picks Sauron. Interestingly, there is a weird coincidence here, as Petter’s champion is played by the same actor as last week and Arkenor’s champion comes from the same mythology. Either way, the vote is yours!


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.
