So here is my follower forever, I’ve had a very strange year with many ups and downs but there have been wonderful people that have pulled me through so thank you for being there for me. So here is everyone I follow, I hope I haven’t missed anyone out!. Have a wonderful new year and remember, enjoy John’s potato
Can you recommend me some good norwegian songs? I speak spanish and i'm trying to learn norwegian.
my current favourites from my ‘norwegian in norwegian’ playlist (keep in mind some of these are sung in different dialects):
“her” - karpe diem “kan du lære mæ?” - kristian kristensen “riv i hjertet” - sondre justad “alle snakker sant” - siri nilsen “vår beste dag” - marit larsen “fredag” - kjartan lauritzen “lørdag” - emile the duke “du fortenar ein som meg” - daniel kvammen “sansen” - tôg “ås to i osjlo” - ravi “årner sæ” - ravi/jo nesbø “hjerteknuser” - moi
you could also try searching for “norsk på norsk” on spotify
hi guys, i meant to do this earlier in the year but completely forgot! 2016 has already been a bit of a rollercoaster of a year - i’ve met some amazing new friends, said goodbye to a few, but i want you guys to know that i appreciate each and every one of you and love you lots!
it’s really weird to think that i have one thousand followers. let me tell you, three-ish years ago i never could have imagined this! thank all of you so much. i can’t really express how grateful i am to you guys. you are all so beautiful.
Why is the golden snitch called the Golden Dick in norwegian? Also why is Neville Longbottom called Nilus Long Balls? Also why is Madame Poppy Pomfrey called Madame Pussy French Frie? Did the original translators not think HP was gonna be big and just went "fuck it might as well entertain myself" with the names?
why is neville’s last name ‘long bottom’ in the first place???
no one is called “poppy” in norway, but pussi is a nice nickname seeing as pus means kitty and is often used as an endearing term. pomfrey and pomfrit are basically pronounced the same, but very few norwegian surnames end in -y. no norwegian kid would know how to pronounce the word “snitch”. snopp means dick in swedish, and some norwegians have adopted it (unfortunately), so get ur facts str8 ok.
sure, we’re the same in many ways, but i feel like they always steal our thunder internationally. moose? we have them too. northern lights? hell yeah. snow? yup. saying eh? we say øh. doing crazy shit in the cold? it’s the most norwegian thing tbh
I can't express how mindblowing it is to see, as a brazilian, a country were the public cable network can create a tv show featuring a gay teenager as a protagonist without receiving massive backlash. In my country, the first televisioned gay kiss (in 2014) received so much criticism (and it was in a private owned channel). People said that it should not have been showed before 23pm, that children were being indoctrinated into homosexuality, that it was being shoved on people's throats...
i was at an event today by the organization skeiv verden (queer world) where a brazilian gay guy talked about what it’s like being gay in brazil, and how we can’t talk for granted the rights and security we have in norway ❤️💛💚💙💜
Whenever racist shitholes talk abt how refugees make scandinavian countries unsafe I just wanna remind them that the white supremacist Breivik killed more people in one day than any major terror-incident involving IS that's struck scandinavia this past decade.
(also we’re not gonna reply to refugee politics or political asks in general on here, it’s not the place and it’s also way too fricking early to be throwing shizzle like that around. it literally happened a few hours ago, people are still in shock and barely mourning yet, have some respect)
