If you are interested in trolls and Scandinavia, or Scandinavian trolls, this is the site for you!

Wonderful site, with works by John Bauer, amongst others. (I just ordered my John Bauer book, and I’m in a troll-y mood) 

Astrid, have you ever seen Trollhunter (Trolljegeren)? It’s a Norwegian mockumentary that I found quite enjoyable!

I saw it on Netflix and practically squealed for joy, cause I saw the trailer for it on itunes but never got to see it in theaters (not even sure it was playing in theaters near me). 

I thought it was very entertaining.  I especially enjoyed the element of thinking of them as wild animals, rather than…almost satanic creatures as they’re often displayed in folklore.  I thought it was an interesting subverted, if not purposeful, comment on how we think of animals that harm us.

Meanwhile in Sweden….
Drunken Elk Saved from Apple Tree

A drunken elk became lodged in an apple tree on his desperate search for one more mouthful of fermenting apples in Western Sweden.

So I just get home and my mom asks: “Wanna see a picture of a drunken elk in an apple tree?”
My reaction to this article: “Even Swedish fruit has alcohol in it!?! Do they export that shit?”

so I was going through the “meanwhile in sweden” tag…..

Found in a Junk Shop: Secrets of an Undiscovered Visionary Artist

His story is one shrouded in mystery, almost lost forever, intertwined with secret societies, hidden codes, otherworldly theories and seemingly impossible inventions before his time. Unseen for decades and salvaged by a junk dealer in the 1960s from a trash heap outside a house in Texas, his entire body of work would later go on to marvel the intellectual world. But during his lifetime, Charles Dellschau had only been known as the grouchy local butcher.

[…]

In 2009, Pete Navarro finally published his co-written The Secrets of Dellschau, revealing a lot of the script he had decoded from the books. Four books still remain in the Menil Collection, locked in a humidity-controlled room. Researchers continue to unearth new pieces of information through  surviving relatives.
