Norwegian Shows and Movies On Demand

by Lindy

Films of Norway

As more and more people move away from traditional cable providers and towards digital media content on demand, there are many choices available to the viewer. For those of Norwegian descent, being able to watch Norwegian shows and movies is an incredible opportunity that hasn’t been an option in the past, due to licensing issues and accessibility. Now, Films of Norway is bringing Norway’s best media to the U.S., on your phone, tablet, computer and casting to your TV.

With a small monthly subscription fee, Films of Norway allows you to stream all their media content, most with English subtitles and completely ad free. This can help strengthen your Norwegian language skills as well as give you a culture fix. Almost like traveling to Norway, without going anywhere.

Films of Norway content includes movies, documentaries, TV series, kids’ shows, cooking shows, classics and more, with new shows added regularly. We watched a lot of the festive Christmas shows around the holidays. The kids also loved the shows Zookeeper and Vic the Viking (English version). The language difference served as an excellent lesson for the kids; reminding them that there’s more than just the English language and that they can actually understand what is happening in the show and follow along through context, facial expressions, body language and inflection.

I personally enjoy the Taste of Norway cooking show, Creativity for Kids kids’ crafts show, music videos and the Northwest Passage show. I love seeing the beautiful backdrop of the country of my heritage. I enjoy being immersed in the Norwegian culture through its media, which seems more authentic than the typical U.S. media content.

If experiencing Norway through media on demand, give Films of Norway a try. They offer a free seven day trial membership. Check it out!

If you end up watching a few Norwegian shows, drop me a line and let me know which are your favorite. Stay tuned for more detailed reviews of Films of Norway shows and movies.

 


Tattify Typewriter Tattoo Review

Tattify Typewriter Tattoo – Amazon.com

I learned about Tattify temporary tattoos when shopping on my favorite website, Amazon.com, searching for vintage typewriters. Up popped up a suggested product for a vintage Royal typewriter tattoo. A few clicks and it was purchased – two for $5 – what a steal!

The tattoos arrived quickly (thanks to Amazon Prime) and I was impressed with the packaging and product presentation. I love Tattify’s overall concept and designs. They are fun, unique and creative.

When I first put on my typewriter tattoo, an easy and quick process, I was giddy. It was a little big for my thin forearm, but it was a nice change from the empty canvas.

Sadly, in less than 24 hours, with no bathing or sun exposure, the tattoo looked faded and blob-like. I’m not pleased by it. I guess that is what a real tattoo would look like after a few decades of aging. I think I will use a Sharpie pen and make my own tattoo next time. Or (gasp) go for the real thing (not likely).

Here is my Norwegian cousin Heidi’s word art tattoo that I absolutely love and wouldn’t mind sporting on my forearm. It translates to (from my best translating attempts): tough, funny, strong-willed, joyful, brave, I’m good enough, honest, creative, comfortable, dutiful, conscientious. I feel these words speak to me and describe me as well.
