Weekly World Music: “Ty Kosov Ket Keng Ta Knova” - Fatime Sokoli
Although I was unable to find much information on today’s song or artist I wanted to post it anyway. The artist, Fatime Sokoli was a traditional folk singer from northern Albania active in throughout the 60’s and 70’s. I have found little information on, and no translation of the song, but it appears to have something to do with Kosovo. As always, however, the enjoyment of another culture’s language and music is unhindered by lack of understanding.

u know how universal did a thing and made a huge big park for harry potter and they had the school and the wand shops and everything what if something like that was made for skyrim
imagine a whiterun and a riften and a solitude and a riverwood and you could buy stuff from the shopkeepers who dress as the respective shopkeepers
you would sleep and eat at the different inns like the bannered mare and the bunkhouse, it would only cost $10 for a room since in game it’s only 10 septims, and they’d sell real life sweet rolls and eidar cheese and grilles leeks and charred skeever hide (which would probably be some kind of fish or beef irl)
you could buy props like fake steel swords and hide shields and fake armor or jewelry from the blacksmiths
there could be little tombs and people dressed as draugrs in there and they’d hide something in the tombs, and at different points of the day they’d give different quests where you go get one of the hidden things while avoiding the draugr actors and bring the thing back to an actor and they would give you like $5 or a free sweet roll
animatronic dragons that yell yol toor shul or fo krah diin and fire or snow from a snow machine comes out, and would speak in dovah via an actor inside with with a microphone and Very Big Speakers
plays that are about forsworn attacks, bandit raids, the civil war
people that walk around and randomly ask you about which side youre on - stormcloaks or the empire, and if you side with the one they don’t like they’ll sneer at you every time you pass them for the rest of the day
carriage rides to the different hold capitals, sometimes bandit attacks would be scheduled and if you were on the carriage at that time bandit actors would seize the carriage and you’d have to walk
khajiit caravans that sell skooma that’s actually just an energy drink shot

Hamkrakken [ham-krah-kun] noun (often initial capital letter): Often found in agility, a dog who moves at lightning speed; usually cannot be contained. Also: a dog with very high drive. [See also: dogs who run/move so fast that you’ll be out of breath and/or probably pass out from trying to keep up with them]
Hamkrakkening [ham-krah-kun-ning] verb: Refer to Ein’s video above.
For serious though, when I use the nickname/term ‘Hamkrakken,’ I think of dogs like Ein (above) or emmathebean. I also think of border collies, like in this video (Fast forward to around the 2:30 mark, but really, all the dogs in that video are Hamkrakkens.)
There are 2 types of Hamkrakkens: the good and the bad. The good is a controlled start stay with a fast and clean run; the bad is…well. Just watch this video. I promise you’ll laugh.
