  1. Ay up! Lokasenna, (prendrelemick told me his kind of greeting)

    After a few blogging myself, I browsed other blogs and I ran into yours. I loved your blogs all three. I like your writing style, smooth flowing with fresh idea. A hat to you!
    I hope you are having a good summer break.
  2. All going well? Haven't seen you around for a while.

    Hey Loskasenna. Would you consider entering the Subject Poetry Contest? The subject is "...the letter in his pocket."
  4. Thanks for the acceptance, my friend - always great seeing you around.

    Hi Lokasenna! Just logged in to ask you whether or not you've read Tolkien's Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun (which I'm reading now) yet when I saw your post on lib's Tolkien thread what did you think?

    Ooooh, good luck for your results! I've got all my fingers crossed for you.
    Have you got your copy of 'Sigurd and Gudrun'? It really is an impressive bit of writing (in my opinion!). Let me know how you get on.

    Take care :o)

    Most odd. You're taller than I expected! I handed in an essay this week too. What a feeling of RELIEF! Are you confident about your work? About taking your exam? I think you'll sail through, you seem like the type. MA land is good, I'm back into my dissertation now which is fun. I got Tolkien's 'Sigurd and Gudrun' through the post the other day and my plan for tonight is to settle down with much tea and start reading. I'm EXCITED!

    Hey! How're things going? Are your assessed essays going ok/finshed? Do you have to sit any exams or anything? I'm sure I saw you at uni the other day... it was strange!

    Thanks Loki!

    I've read about Vikings and Norse myth when I was little.

    Hello Loki!

    I stumbled upon a post of yours in a languages thread, and I was wondering, is Icelandic the language used by Vikings? The alphabet they used, they were called 'runes', right? I've memorized them before, but now I forgot.
    Do they spell out words like they do in English?

"I should only believe in a God that would know how to dance. And when I saw my devil, I found him serious, thorough, profound, solemn: he was the spirit of gravity- through him all things fall. Not by wrath, but by laughter, do we slay. Come, let us slay the spirit of gravity!" - Nietzsche

My eyes do decieve me...

by Lokasenna on 06-16-2010 at 02:53 PM
Can anyone understand these things? It seems so farcical – that man can be so inventive, so creative, and yet a slave to the physical self! Is it perhaps because my mind so often conjures up mighty vistas of the imagination, never needing banal sight, that my eyes have wasted so? The sheer power of inherent wonderment is often enough; why then am I still so reliant on these weak orbs? Can human craft beget nothing more profound than flimsy plastic plates and tender wires to keep me truly in this

If not to heaven, then hand in hand to hell?

by Lokasenna on 10-06-2009 at 02:50 PM
A few thoughts on the debt we owe to Hell.

Satan was the first democrat. In all creation, he was the first to rebel against hegemony and tyranny - indeed, the great hegemony! Of God Himself! The ineffable plan was exposed, a declaration in a world were disagreement and discord had never previously appeared, and Satan took it upon himself to disagree. How revolutionary - how human! Power to the masses, not just the One! The first ever example of something so important: not just discord,

What the hand dare seize the fire?

by Lokasenna on 04-22-2009 at 11:27 AM
Out, out, brief candle!

Ah yes, the flickering flame, such a symbol of ourselves, and of our world. Almost every religion attributes some symbolic meaning to this item, representing some form of synergy with a higher power to our mutual improvement - bringing, as it were, illumination to our personal darkness.

But is it an accurate representation of our situation? Is our existence, our personal reality, a flame? A single burst of energy in an otherwise eternal darkness?

Cause Célèbre

by Lokasenna on 03-31-2009 at 10:51 AM
With Madonna attempting to use her 'fame' to adopt yet another African child, and being aghast at the media coverage of this event, its time I climbed on to my soapbox once more, and have a rant about modern celebrity culture:

'Celebrity' is such an odious term, and a repellent idea, at least in its modern application. Everywhere I walk, its soulless stink surrounds me. All men are not equal - this I freely acknowledge - but the distinction is not a meritocratic one. Rather, it is

We Humans.

by Lokasenna on 03-27-2009 at 03:40 PM
What are we? We humans! Elements and chemicals, atoms and molecules that move in such wondrous concert, such harmony. Yet my clothes move in concert with me - are they not me? There is no special property that differentiates the molecules in my skin from those in my shirt - yet I feel no pain if my shirt is torn. What are those molecules to me? We are such closeted ideas, so entirely cut off from the world around us, and yet we think we see! The irony! How do we justify calling ourselves alive,
