For people who are actually interested in how viking music might have sounded, “Drømde mik en drøm i nat" (/I dreamt a dream last night) is the earliest music (and lyrics) known in Scandinavia preserved on the last page of the (~1200-1300) Codex Runicus as rune notes.

The song and melody is still known and used today in most of Scandinavia, as a sort of folk-standard. This version, deceivingly slow in the beginning, is presented as close to the original sound of the years 900-1000 as historians think they can come.

This song might have survived because it was a gigantic hit, like the viking’s very own “Billie Jean”. A total pop slayer that stayed around long enough for music notes to be invented.

The more you know.

Okay, so I watched this video for the first time years ago and thought “Well, this is gunna be stupid and not funny at all.” .. I died laughing throughout the entire thing. 

And everytime I watch it again I think “I’m not gunna laugh at this.” and I’m wrong every time! I crack the fuck up! This video will always get me to laugh.. no matter how bad of a day I’m having.

Amsterdam-based sculptor Cedric Laquieze decorates real cat and dog skeletons with colorful fake flowers to create some of the insect sculptures you’ve ever seen.

Do these not blow your mind? Composed of bones, plants, feathers, and insect parts, these fairies are the inspired creations of Cedric Laquieze, an Amsterdam based sculptor and recent graduate from the Rietveld academy (class of 2010). There is much more where these came from and I definitely recommend a trip to Cedric’s blog where you can view not only his fairies but also his flower creatures and goddesses – all of which are fantastic!

My finished draw-up of “Fat Death”.

I was just getting a bit bored of all humanised versions of Death being scrawny little Goth boys sulking around in black hoodies. She’s gonna reap souls and look damn fine doing it.
