Asgard Funk.

This hit
That ice cold
Brother hrímþurs
That white gold
This one, for them gýgjar
That íviðja
Straight masterpiece
Stylin’, while in
Livin’ it up in the city
Got fur on with Asian silk
Got kiss myself I’m so pretty

I’m too hot (hot damn)
Call Thor and the einheri, man
I’m too hot (hot damn)
Make Surtr wanna retire man
I’m too hot (hot damn)
Say my name you know who I am
I’m too hot (hot damn)
Am I bad ’bout that, honey?
Break it down

Girls hit your hallelujah (whuoo)
‘Cause Asgard Funk gon’ give it to you
Laugardagr night and we in the spot
Don’t believe me just watch (come on)
Hey, hey, hey, oh!

Wait a minute
Fill my cup put some mjöðr in it
Take a sip, flyta on
Thjálfi! Chariot drawn
Ride to Miðgarðr, Jötunheimr, Helheimr, Ginnungagap
If we show up, we gon’ show out
Treasures and lies, gift wrapped

Before we leave
Imma tell y’all a lil’ something
Asgard Funk you up, Asgard Funk you up

Come on, dance
Jump on it
If you jötunn than flaunt it
If you æsir than own it
Don’t brag about it, come show me
Come on, dance
Jump on it
If you jötunn than flaunt it
Well it’s Laugardagr night and we in the spot
Don’t believe me just watch

5 things everyone gets wrong about Loki.

It’s been at least, oh, five minutes since we last had a guest post, so today I’m taking over Michael J. Martinez’s blog to talk about everyone favourite subject: the god Loki.

‘Cause, like, did you know Loki is supposed to lead an army of Viking zombies to kill all the gods at the end of the world? And how that’s amazingly cool but hardly ever talked about? Well. You’d totally have known that if you read this article. Which you should. Right now.

And say thanks to Michael (and go check out his books) while you’re there.

New stories for old gods.

Today I’m over at the Qwillery leading with a thrilling intro on population demographics:

Here’s a weird thing to think about: in the age of the Vikings, between around 800 CE and 1000 CE, the population of the whole of Europe is estimated to’ve been in the vicinity of 30 to 50 million people. In comparison, a little over a thousand years later, in 2012 CE, an estimated 76 million people in the US took themselves off to a cinema to watch the old Viking gods Thor and Loki battle it out in Marvel’s The Avengers.

Or, to put it another way: today, something like twice the entire population of medieval Europe knows who “Thor” and “Loki” are, in one country alone.

Who says the old gods are dying?
