A Blan Boy. Every morning, I thank the Lord I'm Welsh.

21, I used to study Geography at Leicester University, now I plan to pick up learning Welsh again while attempting to get a proper job. Temporarily living in Leicester until I can get back to Cymru.

I like weird music, bad films and shitty comics.

I love all things Welsh, being Welsh myself, and so I often re-blog posts about Welsh history, culture, mythology, art, landscapes, or anything else interesting. This also applies to Europe as a whole, and sometimes to the rest of the World.

I'm happy for anyone to follow me, and generally I follow back. I've no particular political persuasion other than Right Wing(ish), but I don't tend to start talking about politics unless it's a rant on how much I Hate the Labour party.

I don't mind if you, the reader, wants to talk but you should start for I am internet-shy sometimes.

I was once described as "marmite". I think that's fairly accurate.

Quote reblogged from Wandering Heathen with 171 notes

From Ymir’s flesh

the earth was formed,

from his blood the sea,

from his bones the mountains,

from his hair trees,

and from his skull the heavens.

And from his brows

the blessed gods

made middle-earth

for the sons of men;

and from his brains

all the sullen clouds

were created.

The Norse Creation-Myth as Odin relays to Gylfi, legendary king of Sweden

Snorri Sturluson, Edda edited by Anthony Faulkes

Not only do such features surround us as we drive […] but rather than iconic symbols, these are unheralded props in television dramas and documentaries.
   Within these normative geographies, objects and people can be considered to be ‘out of place’ on the road or roadside, for the ways in which things are used and understood depend on geographical knowledge about where they belong. (Edensor 109)

traditionalism:

The Berserks and the Ulfhednir were notorious warriors, feared for their bravery and anger. Screaming in ecstatic fury, biting their shields, unaffected of pain. Literarily the names means those who wear bearskin and the wolf hoods. From the old Viking town of Hedeby a mask made of wool in the shape of a bear, found during the dig of the Town, is interpreted as a Berserkmask by some archaeologists…
