Used to read these when I was a kid. Too bad our collection wasn't complete.

I had a link to read them free online...I'll see if I can find it!

 

Edit: Wellllll....I found my old link - but now it re-directs to anime porn sites which are kinda fun and interesting but not this early in the morning. LOLOL

:lol: oops 

 

I just checked the link I posted a while ago and it works, all the comics are there. But is seems the site is now plagued with crappy ads, most not safe for work... lol

 

So NSFW

I managed to read some of it. Didn't remember that it was that hilarious. I'm considering getting a physical copy. Doesn't seem like it's cheap, but not expensive either to get the whole collection.

If you read swedish, there's a few on Tradera which aren't that expensive.

I probably have about 2% Viking DNA, so I'm about as much of one as anybody else in this thread.

Recently broke my media fast, one of the first things I encountered was this series on youtube of some wonderful Canadian guys building a semi-traditional Viking long/log house in BC I believe.  Immediately thought of you @rene and this thread... so here's the first episode in their series.  Three guys, hand tools, ultra simple methods, pure awesome.

The previous series led me to this gentleman Shawn James, who completely by himself has built a log cabin deep in the woods of Canada.  While it's not Viking design, his techniques and skills are very high level and I found so many valuable tips for my own woodcraft through watching him.  Figured you might pick up some  beneficial stuff while you work on your meditation cabin.

 

Skol!

From the outside it looks a bit like the little log cabin my father built for my sister and I nestled into the edge of the woods at the property line. 

 

Nice to see you silent thunder.

Awesome image of Huginn and Muninn.

I wear Geri and Freki around my neck.

LOL perhaps. There are a few full-blood nordic-folks here... but no offence was taken and even with only 2% you would still be welcome at the longtable, if your heart is in the right place. Skål !

I've never seen them in a yin yang symbol before. Pretty cool. 

I wonder if they're connected to Fenrir? Or are they one and the same?

What picture is this? Who painted it? I would absolutely buy a print of this to hang on the wall if possible.

 

I like it too. A reverse Google image search gave me this.

Nope. Fenrir is one of Loki's three offspring  (and will end up killing Odin at Ragnarok)

 

Geri & Freki were created by Odin... here's a fun link:

http://rabidreads.ca/2011/07/the-myth-of-geri-and-freki.html

"After creating the world with his brothers, Odin became lonely traveling by himself so he created the first wolves: Geri and Freki ... The ruler of Asgard and these furry canines quickly became inseparable. They traveled the world together and slowly populated the Earth with wolves, their offspring. ..."

A fun show on Networks about the Viking pantheon is the Almighty Johnsons.   Set in todays time, the New Zealand show has highly depowered reincarnations of the Norse gods going through everyday life,  a great watch.

Good morning! I finally had a chance to watch these, really enjoyed them. YouTube is great, lol, and yours led me to one that is so incredibly peaceful to watch. Almost a meditation of its own..probably because there's so few words in it. Just fascinating to watch; much of what he's done, I have. His YT space is called Naturally Primitive, only two vids so far, hope he does more.

This is where I purchased them https://www.amazon.com/s?k=almighty+johnsons&ref=nb_sb_noss_2

 

or 

 

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=almighty+johnsons&_sacat=0

 

I get great deals on ebay for T.V. and movies.

 

Series is worth it have watched it through twice now. 3 seasons total second time around I picked up on even more stuff and it was funnier.

FYI On Starz American Gods Season 1 is completely out and Season 2 just premiered last night. Without giving too much if you like the Norse Pantheon ...

Spoiler

The day of the week Wednesday is named after the All-father Odin.
