Mac the Moose, of Moose Jaw, Canada, was the world’s tallest moose sculpture at 32′-2″ until he was dethroned in 2015 by a Norwegian chrome moose (pictured above). He resides at a rest stop off the RV3 road in Stor-Elvdal, Norway, and stands 33′-1″ tall .
Residents of Moose Jaw were pissed, so they replaced Mac’s antlers with larger ones in 2019. Mac now stands at 34 feet tall. Here he is.
Mac attracted national attention in 2004 when part of his jaw fell off.

LIVE CAM: Train Engineer’s Cab View in Norway [click here for local time]. Not sure which line this is, where it’s headed, or if it’s running above the Arctic Circle. Check it out in full screen view and I’ll see you back here in a couple of days.
Someday, I suppose I’ll go to Norwegia and ride that train. Meanwhile, I’ll listen to The Mighty Mighty Bosstones from 1993.
Or maybe I’ll roll with Fishbone, one of the tightest ska/rock/funk bands I ever heard. Those guys won me over a long time ago. (Check out this 1987 live version. Sound quality sucks, but the energy is killer.)
Let’s turn it down a bit with a cover of Bob Dylan’s “All Along The Watchtower.” The Allman Brothers Band in 2011 always found a nice groove (presumed band lineup here).
Have a great Easter/Passover/Seder weekend, folks. See you soon.
Looks like about 3PM in Røros, Norway, time for the evening commute.

TrollfesT is a Norwegian folk metal band (according to Wiki) who want to party in Cabana, and “Solskinnsmedisin” translates to “Sunshine Medical” according to Mr. Google. Where the hell is Norwegia? Bunkarina’s boyfriend thought I might like it, and I did. If that was a bit much, here’s something a bit lighter.
Irma Pany is a singer-songwriter from Cameroon. “Save Me” is kinda catchy, and the video is kinda interesting [via].
Have a great weekend, and we’ll be back tomorrow with more blatant inanity.
“Ja, kjære. Jeg kommer til å få en pakke sigaretter og et par øl. Jeg vil se deg neste uke. Hvis jeg ikke er tilbake på søndag, spise en røyskatt for kveldsmat.”
