Manly P Hall lectures on Norse Mythology! As a juggernaut of esoteric knowledge, it's always of interest to read or hear MPH hold forth about the hidden aspects behind a given subject. Here Hall brings to bear his recombinant & passionate telling of the myths, mixing & matching the Eddas with the Saga of the Völsungs, and his weighted interpretation of Wagner's The Ring Cycle. Given his highly accomplished masonic background and a lifetime of comparative investigations, MPH's lecture's a challenging & provocative #NorsePlay of mystic thought & cosmic ideas you may not have previously considered in tandem with #NorseLore.

The +Aston Martin Valkyrie. For $3.2M USD this thing should get up the Rainbow Bridge and park you in Valhalla. Get that Wagner on the stereo and go.

Svartálfheimr dwelling space. Note the spiral cone forge rising from the floor at right, the brain in the wall at left, and the switched with changeling infant making a swift crawl for freedom up the stairs.

Yggdrasil and accompanying cosmic animals. From the +Penguin Books UK cover of The Elder Edda. The bookshop upsell sticker on the front references it as an inspiration for Tolkien, and the art style somewhat calls back to the 1969 painted paperback covers from his trilogy. This Edda is part of Penguin's Legends from the Ancient North series, with equally neat new covers for The Saga of the Volsungs & Beowulf.

Spotted this #Valknut branded on +Paiste Cymbals at my workplace. It made us wonder how it sounded, and why it was selected for that particular adornment. Viking Metal, anyone?

Still from For Honor, a game where vikings, knights, and samurai face off! Note the #Mjölnir decorated gate behind Siv the Ruthless.
[Thanks to +Khaine Outsider for mentioning his current #NorsePlay.]

We've always liked the idea of Mjölnir's brother hammer, Stormbreaker. Marvel's bold #NorsePlay begs the question: If dwarven forgemasters #Sindri & #Brokkr could fashion one #Smarthammer weapon, what was there to stop them from turning their prodigious skills toward making another?
