  • In this context we must observe firstly that the Viking Age Scandinavians themselves were on the cusp of such a distinction - undoubtedly literate in the use of runic scripts, though to an uncertain extent, but with a bookless culture that did not employ written documentation and historical record- keeping. A crucial point here must be the realisation that the early medieval Scandinavians certainly knew about these things, and that they either rejected them outright or chose to replace them with something else. Perhaps they did not serve their needs, or they did not fit into their view of how things should be.

  • The Viking Age: Religion and War in Late Iron Age Scandinavia 

    Much heavier and more academic than the last link I posted about viking scholarship. I’m still slogging through, but this is a very common citation in articles about the concept of ergi so I figured I would dig it up.

    thesweaterigaveyou:

    yeah you’re right that is lame! i’m sorry about that. i must have ran out of free downloads (which is fucking insane!! thank you so much everyone <33)

    i’m currently living paycheck to paycheck right now so i can’t really pay for more downloads but if you message me off anon i can make a dl link for you!

    sorry about that! but thank you for wanting to download them and thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who’s listening to my songs. this is all still so fucking mind-blowing and heartwarming for me. thank you thank you thank you <33

    Even as someone who is committed to offering my music for free, I take issue with telling an artist they are “lame” for wanting compensation.  I understand this was actually a simple mistake and that Ivan is also on the side of music being free, but still.

    Some people pay their bills with music, and people like me who have no other skills outside of music have to constantly devise ways to make it pay the rent while also maintaining whatever ethical sense they have.

    use better words.

    maybe the OP could have the decency to quietly torrent music they cant (or wont) pay for, like everyone else short on cash between album purchases, and leave the artist the fuck alone about it instead of shitting up their asks. your inability to figure out basic filesharing isn’t my problem. paying rent is my problem. tell it to ffshrine dot org

  • Some recent things

    octoberzephyr:

    • Our Bosun, ironically dubbed “Killer”, carries a 7’ rope in his back pocket and uses it almost daily for various projects. There’s a life lesson in there somewhere.

    • I am convinced a coworker’s inner monologue strictly the sound of a cash register. He wants nothing more in life than to be rich so he “can play all day” bc he’s “burnt out”. He’s not yet old enough to rent a car.

    • I’ve had to calm a witch hunt for whoever flushed a tampon down the toilet. They haven’t said one word to the man flushing baby wipes daily that has caused a blockage every. single. day. for ten days. But see one tampon and suddenly they want to line up the women and see who’s bleeding.

    • I’ve managed to get one sketch in a day. I put them on my safety observation cards and turn them in. I’m terrible at it, but it feels good to create. I will get in trouble for it soon.

    • Participated in an informative conversation about singularity and human emotion. This was followed by good and healthy debate about the state of the Merchant Mariners. I learned something and gained perspective.

    • I look at the horizon and sea and I feel infinite. My skin is denticles; my veins are salt and constellations.

  • Darren Wilson’s “blowout fracture”

    delphoxqueen:

    If you’ve been keeping up with what the media is saying about Darren Wilson, you may have read this article that claims he suffered a blowout fracture: a fracture of one or more bones surrounding the eye. Here is a screencap from the article of “Darren Wilson’s” CT scan. Also known as “lol_bc_not_darren_wilson.jpg”

    image

    When the article later stated that “police sources” said 12 witnesses had taken Wilson’s side, I was incredible skeptical, obviously.

    [I also want to mention that this article is using pictures of the convenience store where the owner’s lawyer blatantly stated that Mike Brown did not steal anything.]

    This article lists the side effects of an orbital blowout fracture. It also posts a video taken by Piaget Crenshaw, a woman who lives on the street where Mike Brown was killed. The video shows Darren Wilson standing around Mike’s body soon after his murder, showing no signs of pain; and you see the officer he’s reporting to acting like Wilson hasn’t been injured at all. That isn’t very likely for someone who would have visible signs of trauma. 

    The second article also shows “Darren’s” CT scan, and one that looks exactly like it, but: in the corner it says UNIV OF IOWA ETC-TC. Just to check up on this, I looked up the words “university of iowa blowout fracture” and set Google to where it would show posts from before this year, guess what.

    On uiowa.edu, this CT scan was on a page made in 2008[It’s about all kinds of eye trauma.] Here’s a screencap with the url in it so you can see what I’m talking about, if you don’t want to scroll through a page with graphic injuries.

    image

    I don’t know why they thought they could get away with this at all, oh my god. The article that says Darren Wilson was injured is a complete fallacy, and the police released this information to make Mike Brown seem like a “thug.”

    (“There’s no more racism in America! We have a black President!”)

    Now listen to me. If an article does not post credible sources (“two local St. Louis sources” does not count at all) or only goes off what the police is saying: double, triple, quadruple check it before you share the information, just to cause less hysteria for everyone trying to stay updated on these horrific events.

  • Being born a woman is an awful tragedy. Yes, my consuming desire to mingle with road crews, sailors and soldiers, bar room regulars—to be a part of a scene, anonymous, listening, recording—all is spoiled by the fact that I am a girl, a female always in danger of assault and battery. My consuming interest in men and their lives is often misconstrued as a desire to seduce them, or as an invitation to intimacy. Yet, God, I want to talk to everybody I can as deeply as I can. I want to be able to sleep in an open field, to travel west, to walk freely at night.
