Pearls before Swine
This is Danish Lagkage. This is the tradtional (and normal) birthday cake in Denmark. There is fruit inside (usually tangerines, strawberrys), some sort of jam jelly type stuff, and the cake itself is similar to poundcake. Its good stuff. Danes think I'm nuts because I like to take pics of food but the differences in food still fascinate me.

So I'm walking down the street in Nørrebro today, which is a part of Copenhagen that is to say the least, "multicultural", and this big grinning Somalian negro whips out this pic, and hands it to me. I smiled back and with all my Kentucky charm said "dejlig billede!" (which more or less means nice or good picture) then we both continued on our way. I'm still trying to decipher this one. I wanted to hang it on the fridge but the wife wouldn't let me.

Pan by Knut Hamsun -To give a brief synopsis a Norwegian man goes to a rural area of Norway to spend several months hunting and living in a cabin in the forest. Most of this book deals with his interactions with the locals of this rural community, in particular two women. One is married but makes herself available in all ways to the main character, the other who fancies herself an aristocrat of some sort seems to be mainly interested in mind games and seeing how many hoops she can make him jump through to please her. Because he is socially backward he often acts in inappropriate ways in social settings and towards her, which both enrages and makes her all the more intrigued by the outsider.

I liked this book, as I do everything else by Hamsun I have ever read, but he always writes good or very good novels but seems to fall short of writing a truly great book. Hamsun was a good writer but I think he is overrated in some quarters. One thing I do like about him is his stories are VERY Scandinavian, not just in predictable ways, but also in very subtle ways that unless you've lived in Norway/Sweden/Denmark that you probably wouldn't pick up on. Overall I liked his Growth of the Soil and Hunger much more than Pan. My favorite piece of Scandinavian literature however would be by another author Beyond Sing the Woods by Trygve Gulbranssen.

The Missionary Position by Christopher Hitchens -I really didn't need to read this book to figure out that Mother Teresa was just another globalist tool and a propaganda/fundraising cash cow for the Catholic church but Missionary Position does a good job of driving that point home and giving good solid evidence to that fact. To give a few examples, the millions she took from the mega swindler Keating and never returned, her response to the Dupont chemical spill in India instead of seeking justice and calling to make Dupont acountable was telling people to "just forgive" so as not to cause any problems with the globalist corporats. Then of course there were the notoriously deplorable conditions in her hospitals and shelters, totally filthy, where they not only reused needles but their idea of sterilizing them was washing them with cold water! Also people were not given proper pain medication (Mother Teresa had this idea that the more you suffered the closer you were to Christ!) So you had things like this going on but at the same time it was found out in just the bank account for her shelters in the New York area there was $50 million dollars sitting idly. When the city of San Francisco donated a fully furnished shelter to her for a shelter for homeless men who had AIDS she promptly had all the couchs, beds and televisions thrown out insuring that the dying would live as comfortless as possible. All I can say is thankfully this cash cow for the forces of evil in this world is dead!

Egils Saga by Anonymous -Egil was a classic anti-hero, a warrior, poet, runemaster, traveller, adventurer, took crap off of nobody, had bloodfueds and vendettas that went as high up the ladder as the King of Norway. The guy was everything an Odinist should be. I am a lover of Icelandic Sagas and have read many, if not most of them but this one is one of my favorites.

Seeds of Deception by Jeffrey M. Smith -After reading this book I have to consider Monsanto not just to be a typical greedy make money at all costs multi-national corporation but given their prior history, even before what they are doing with genetically modified foods an out and out threat to humanity. Plus what the global elites are doing with the Svalbard seedbank that was funded by Rockefeller and Bill Gates money I almost have to wonder if they are planning on out and out poisoning us all through the toxic corporate controlled food supply. I am grateful that I live in Europe where there has been opposition to genetically modified foods and for the most part they have been kept off of the shelf but I fear its only a matter of time before they find a way to worm their way in. Thank you Jeffrey Smith for being a real journalist/investigative writer and exposing Monsanto and their ilk!

 I just pushed a wrong button and lost a long post. I am fucking PISSED off right now to the point where I came close to deleting my livejournal account out. In the meantime here's another statue.

A statue that commends the Greenlanders for their greatness or something along those lines. There is also a similar Greenlander tribute statue just a few feet to the side of this one. The great irony and humor of this is in the little square where these statues are, every day there is a large group of wretched looking Greenlander welfare drunks sitting around guzzling alcohol and carrying on. More often than not they are actually sitting directly on the benches below these statues.

A rare instance of some intelligent grafitti around here. The text around the Lord Rothschild/J.D Rockefeller character thats snacking on planet Earth loosely translates to something to the effect of Wall Street is eating up/destroying the Earth. Of course I doubt that the artist understands that the same people created, funded, promoted and profited from his beloved Communism.

I thought this building looked cool. It reminded me of a big Viking ship or a dragon for obvious reasons. Even the shingles look like the scales on a dragon. I still love how the buildings and architecture look in Denmark.

I've been meaning to post a few pics from this for a few weeks. Yet another Tyr show! This one was at a Nordic Isles festival about a month ago. Most of the people there were from the Faroes and Iceland who weren't the usual metal types, although there also some Danish and German metal fans that made it to this show too. Lots of fun in a very casual atmosphere. 95% of the people there were drunk but there were no fights, no attitudes, no lame posers trying to out cool each other. When the band took a break they came out in the crowd and drank and talked to people like they were at home among friends. A great night of fun, Odinist metal and love for the true northern culture.

I was looking through a CD full of pics that were mostly taken in a period of about six months before I moved to Denmark. I think I am going to do a post or two of random pics from those considering I haven't posted any pics in a while because I haven't taken very many worth saving, much less posting for several months.

One thing I really miss is having the ability to go out in the woods whenever I want and hunt, track and tree animals, or just hike around and adventure with my dog in the forest. It has been difficult at times for me to adjust to living in such an urban environment.

Here are a few pics taken by my wife from a show Tyr did right down the street at Christiania recently. Tyr is a GREAT folkish Odinist/Asatru metal band from the Faroe Islands. The Faroes are a group of remote islands that are technically a part of Denmark but they have their own language and their own distinct culture and way of life. The Faroese language closely resembles old Norse. The lyrics of many of Tyrs songs are in Faroese.

Tyr on Myspace -Go here and watch the videos to Hail to the Hammer and Regin Smiur. I get chills every time I hear these songs. Real Odinic music! Hails and love to all Father Odin and the mighty Thor! Some of us will never forget! Our Gods are not dead! We are eternal!

Official Tyr Website

P.S- Check this out. 'Gandkvæði Tróndar' by Janus Djurhuus. Translated from Faroese its a call to the Gods and spirits of nature to destroy the churches and invasion of demonic Christian tyranny to the Faroes.

Gandkvæði Tróndar

Hevjið í homrum
harðmælta kvæðið,
villu valkyrjur,
vetrarins børn,
tit mínar frælsu,
froysandi hvirlur,
føddar av ódn.

Hastið í hernað
hamranmna døtur,
vekið til veldis
vilt glaðustrok;
gravið frá grunni
goysandi orrusturok.

Ramar eg risti
rúnir, ið rinda
ravni ræ.
Sanna skal Sigmundur,
Tróndur trøllsterkur kvað.

Verjast skal valhøll,
ið vølvur veittu
Miklum norðlanda monnum til mið.
Eydnast at inna
ei skal Signumdi
Eystlanda sið.

Fjallfríðu Føroyar,
ramasta rúnin,
ritað av gudum
um einstakra rætt!
Trygdareið Tróndur
hann treystligt at verja
svór síni ætt.

Hevjið í homrum
harðmælta kvæðið,
villu valkyrjur
veiti mær vørn.
Fram móti Sigmundi
skip hansar sorandi,
land honum forðandi,
fram móti kristni
kirkjurnar brótandi,
Tróndur til Tórs og til Óðins er blótandi,
høgt kvøður heiðin ørn.


J.H.O. Djurhuus (1881 - 1948)
Trond's Magical Chanting

Raise the roar
of rage from the rocks,
wild valkyries
from winter born,
fly my freeborn
furious whirlwinds,
born in the storm.

Ride in rage
daugthers of rocks,
wake up the wildest
waves of the sea,
raise from the sea-beds
raving madness and fear.

I carve ruthless
runes that reach
the ravens rape.
Sigmund shall suffer,
Trond the sorcerer sang.

Stand up for Valhall,
granted by gods,
to the great Norsemen as ultimate bait.
Sigmund shall never
succeed to impose
the East-landers faith.

Mountainous Faeroes
the ranciest runes
written by gods
about human rights!
Oath of allegience
Trond made in truth
for all in his sight

Raise the roaring
rage from the rocks,
wild valkyries
protect my rights.
Storm agains Sigmund,
ship wreck his vessels,
keep him from land.
Storm Christianity,
churches and vanity,
Trond prays for Thor's and Odin's insanity,
the heathen eagle fares high.

You could make an argument that my neighborhood is the shithole of all Denmark. That being said nine out of ten people around here are very nice and pleasant to deal with. But the thing is when you have so many people piled on top of each other even if only 1 in 10 is a piece of shit thats still a lot of terds.

The scene in the pic below is pretty typical of the sort of thing you often see around my neighborhood. In this case, which was right outside my window, on a recent sunday morning two drunken Greenlandic morons start fighting each other, one decides he was sick of fighting so he starts running in circles around my neighbors car using it as a shield while the other one chased him. Once the one chasing him tired from the chase slowing to fast walk in his circular pursuit the runner starts taunting him from the other side of the car. To show his enthusiasm he starts pounding one of the windows of the car over and over which ends up causing the window to smash into a million pieces and his hand and arm to start streaming blood. I found this ironic considering both of them were such bad fighters that it reminded me of two old ladies fighting over a parking space in a grocery store parking lot and no real damage was done in the actual fight. So anyway  the cops show up and throw the bloodied car window smashing Innuit into the back of the cop car and cart him off to jail. Although I would imagine they had to take him to the hospital first. Thats my befuddled neighbor standing to the side looking on as they put the idiotic Eskimo in the police car. What a way to begin your sunday morning! The poor car was just in the wrong place in the wrong time.



Just right outside my window I've seen everything from wild brawls, one involving close to ten people, hysterical drug freakouts, drunken females squatting down and pissing on the sidewalk, innumerable amounts of loud arguments and uncountable acts of loud drunken shenanigans. Multiply all that by about 500 and you have a good sample of what I have seen all around this neighborhood. Its getting worse around here too. A lot worse than fist fights and loud drunks. Nobody was actually killed as far as I know but in the past month there have been three stabbings and one shooting in my neighborhood. See I used to think all this stuff was amusing. I remember one night while walking my dog within just a few minutes of viewing multiple instances of obnoxious drunken buffoonery I was literally laughing out loud and fancying to myself that this was all a big joke and I was actually in a Monty Python movie because thats what it reminded me of. But anymore I really don't see much humor in it and over the past few months it has gotten old. There are some things I'm not going to talk about on a public thing like this that anybody can see but lets just say I have been in situations where I had no choice but to be a not so very nice guy a few times and leave it at that. But hey what else can I do? As big of a misanthropist as I am I still want to be nice to people and I have a very long fuse but I promise you I am one of the last people you ever want to fuck with either.

Unfortunately I am stuck in this neighborhood for a while. I will never move back to America unless they send me back in chains with deportation papers stapled to my head but I have been thinking about living in countries other than Denmark now more than ever. Overall I still think Denmark is a great place, especially in comparison with most other countries, but its lost its shine for me lately.

I finally found a bicycle that my poor ass could afford to buy. I went out for a bike ride around the city the other day with a camera attached to my wrist. Here are some of the pics that I took.

This is typical of what you will have if someone invites you over for a nice lunch in Denmark. Most of this stuff is eaten cold. They love to eat cold food here. My wife even drinks her coffee cold! On the other hand they like warm beer and act like I'm a freak for drinking iced tea.

These pics are from a room in National Museum where the walls are covered with huge tapestries depicting scenes of people showing affection towards or hunting with their hounds. Since ancient times they have been our loving, loyal friends, companions, hunting partners and protectors. From helping you feed yourself by tracking game on the hunt, to warning you of possible intruders with their bark, a good dog will not think twice about laying down their own life to protect you. Even showing affection, being there with you or making you laugh when you are feeling sad or lonely.  The dog is the most amazing and complimentary animal to man, not to mention being the truest, most trusted friends we could ever hope to have.

I found this Othala rune randomly stuck in the ground while walking around my neighborhood recently. Its made out of some sort of stone. Whether somebody stuck it there on purpose knowing what it was or its there by random chance of nature I don't think its an accident. 


Check out this sunwheel I found on, of all places, a church door!!!
 

I go inside and find this totally Pagan looking scene on the walls inside. See no matter how they try they can't kill it. They can't kill our culture, our spirit, our Gods.

The following are pics that I took at the National Museum in Copenhagen. This is a depiction of St. George. Forget about the "Saint" and the Christian connectations that St. George conjure up. The legend of St. George has Heathen roots. Check this link to read up on it.

These are some serious drinking horns. The craftsmanship on these is incredible, especially when you consider how old they are and the tools they had to work with. This one is made of Ivory. The Vikings really got around.

Some very random pics.

Drinking in Scandinavia with Odin and Thor. Odin Beer and Mjoliner Snapps. I thought I would like the Odin beer considering my taste in beer tends to run in the direction of lagers in green bottles but I thought it was drinkable but not something I'd go out of my way to drink. I'm not the snapps drinker around here so I can't comment on how good the Mjolinar is.

Here's some pics of the Gundestrup cauldron that I took at the National Museum a few months back. It was found in dried bog in Denmark in 1891. The cauldron itself dates back to the first or second century BCE. Although some academic eggheads have differing viewpoints, to state the obvious it is Celtic in Origin. Most also believe the cauldron itself, and the depositing of it in the bog was religious in nature. These pics do not do the Gundestrup cauldron justice in comparison to seeing it in person, both in the craftmanship, and the feeling and aura that it emits.
