from the moment benji got his skateboard he kept stomping on the tail popping it into the air. and i repeatedly warned him to be careful he didnt hit himself in the face with it. well he never listens till he gets hurt. it just so happened i caught it on video. dont worry hes ok and after a little hug he was right back to teaching me skateboard tricks.
after he taught me some more tricks i ask him who his favorite skateboarder is.
THIS IS A VERY OLD PIC I DID PROBABLY ABOUT 18 YEARS AGO. THOSE FAMILIAR WITH NORSE MYTHOLOGY SHOULD RECOGNIZE WHATS DEPICTED HERE.
"brothers slay brothers; sisters' children shed each others blood. hard is the world; sensual sin grows huge, there are sword ages, axe ages; shields are cleft in twain; storm ages, murder ages; till the world falls dead, and men no longer spare or pity one Another."
THIS REPRESENTS RAGNOROK THE TWILIGHT OF THE GODS. LOKI AND HIS OFFSPING HELA, THE MIDGARD SERPENT AND THE FENRIS WOLF ALONG WITH THE FROST GIANTS AND THE DEAD MARCH AGIANST ASGARD TO WAGE WAR AGIANST THE GODS WHO MUST ALSO FIGHT THE FIRE GIANTS, THE SONS OF MUSPEL, LED BY THE GIANT SURTUR. THERE IS NO VICTOR AS ALL ARE DESTROYED BY THE DRAGON NIDHOG WHO RISES FROM THE DEEPEST ROOTS OF YGGDRASIL, THE WORLD TREE, TO CLEANSE CREATION SO A NEW WORLD CAN EMERGE.
MY CURRENT UNDERSTANDING OF NORSE MYTHOLOGY IS FAR DIFFERENT TODAY THAN WHAT IT WAS WHEN I DREW THIS. SUFFICE TO SAY SNORRI STURLUSON, AUTHOR OF THE PROSE EDDA, DISTORTED THE ORIGINAL "MYTHS". FOR EXAMPLE ODINN AND WOTAN ARE NOT THE SAME PERSON BUT SNORRI HAS MIXED THIER STORIES TOGETHER. FOR MORE INFO ON THIS SUBJECT LOOK INTO THE WELSH/BRITISH EDDA. I WILL POST MORE ON THIS SUBJECT LATER ALSO
