Rán - Goddess of storms and the drowned dead

Ran (“sea”) is the Goddess of storms and the drowned dead. She is wife to ægir, god of the ocean and king of the sea creatures. She has a net with which she tries to capture men who ventured out on the sea. The sea was also referred to as “Rán’s road”.

She is also associated with the practice of sailors bringing gold with them on any voyage, so that if they drowned while at sea, Ran would be pleased by their gift.

   To the sky shot up the Deep’s Gledes,
   With fearful might the sea surged:
   Methinks our stems the clouds cut,-
   Rán’s Road to the moon soared upward
 - Prose Edda

kaptein sabeltann presentasjonen min
plastic-cutlery-queen

: Her er den, presentasjonen som satt meg på kartet på vgs dette skoleåret. Den beste infoen var selvsagt i spørsmål og svar sesjonen etterpå og jeg kan med glede fortelle om norsk læreren vår som alle kaller Abraham (ingen vet hva han egentlig heter), som faktisk tok presentasjonen min alvorlig gjennom alt som skjedde

Tusen takk for en strålende presentasjon. Virkelig bra saker dette her. jeg tipper @kapteinsabeltann selv er rimelig fornøyd med dette. Karakter 6

avocadokilljoy-deactivated20150  asked:

Could you explain 'seg'? I don't quite understand how it's used. Takk! :D

Absolutely! It can be a bit bewildering, but I promise it is quite simple once explained. 

In Norwegian there are object pronouns which I’ve posted earlier. Those are: meg, deg, dere, oss, dem, ham and henne. These object pronouns also function as reflexive pronouns (*except for: ham, henne, and demwhen using a reflexive verb. Reflexive verbs indicate that the subject is performing the action upon itself. We have them in English and an example would be: I dress myself, you dress yourself, we dress ourselves, and etc. Although, we would more commonly say “I’m getting dressed, you’re getting dressed” etc. They are more commonly used in Norwegian, though, and there are some verbs that require one of these reflexive pronouns. 

And that is exactly what “seg” means and is used for. “Seg” is a third person reflexive object pronoun and can stand for: “himself”, “herself”, “itself”, or “themselves”. It acts very similarly to the possessive “sin”. It reflects the action of the verb back to the subject, and you would know if it’s herself, himself, or itself based on the subject pronoun.

Here are some examples:

Hun/Han/Dem så på seg i speilet. vs. Jeg så på meg i speilet.

 She/He/They looked at her/him/themselves in the mirror vs. I looked at myself in the mirror. 

So in Norwegian they just simplify it. Instead of having himself, herself, themselves, they just have one: seg. 

As I mentioned before there are some verbs that require “seg” and here are some of them:

1. å barbere seg :: to shave

2. å forbedre seg :: to improve (become better)

2. å glede seg til :: to look forward to

3. å kle på seg :: to dress

5. å oppføre seg :: to behave

4. å sette seg :: to sit down

5. å tørke seg :: to dry oneself. 

There are a bunch more, of course. 

I hope this helps and clears it up! If it is still confusing, please let me know!

A VIKING YULE

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the Hall
Not a creature was stirring, not warrior nor thrall
And I in my armour, my greaves and my helm
Was drunker than anyone else in the Realm.

I staggered upstairs and fell into bed
While four quarts of mead were ablaze in my head.
Then up from below came the sounds of a brawl
So I grabbed up my axe and ran down the Hall.

I missed the last step and crashed down in a heap
Thinking, ‘Why can’t those low-lifes downstairs go to sleep?!’
When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But two brawny strangers, wielding mallet and spear.

I said to myself, ‘We’ll soon have them beat!’
Then I noticed ten warriors laid out at their feet.
I gave out a yell and leapt into the fray….
I’ll always regret my poor choice of that day.

For the one laid his hammer to the side of my nose
And up, up, up to the rafters I rose.
Then came a lone frightened voice from the floor,
'Those are no mortal warriors — that’s Odin and Thor’

Then they looked at each other and they said, ‘Battle’s done.
Now they know who we are, it no longer is fun.’
Then Thor raised his hammer, and his elbow he bent,
And with a loud crash, through the ceiling they went.

I crawled through the Hall and flung open the door,
Not really sure that I’d seen them before.
The snow bathed in starlight, the moon like a glede,
I saw them ride off on an eight-legged steed.

And I heard them exclaim, ‘ere they flew out of sight,
'TO HELHEIM WITH CHRISTMAS, WE JUST LOVE A GOOD FIGHT!’


Hope everyone has a very Blessed Yule! Hail, my Brothers and Sisters!

Bård synger og koser seg.

22.09.04 

Her en dag da jeg gikk gjennom alle mulige slags saker vi hadde tatt vare på på PCen min, så oppdaget jeg noen opptak som var blitt gjort hjemme hos meg i forbindelse med at vi skulle lage et eller annet.

Etter å ha hørt gjennom det, velger jeg å legge opptakene av en syngende Bård ut her slik at folk kan forstå hvilken hengiven og talentfull artist han er, og hvilken glede det er for meg å få jobbe med ham. Ikke bare synger og spiller han på nivå med det beste fra utlandet; tekstene er tankevekkende men samtidig poetisk vakre.

Jeg gir dere min bror, Bård, som vil fremføre sine låt-skisser; “Born Into a Lie”  og “Fantasy”.^

^Unfortunately the mp3 files were not available. ):


“Ylvis - En Konsert” avsluttet. 

22.09.04

Etter et og et halvt år med lyden av et 12-manns orkester i ryggen, er det på mange måter bedrøvelig å måtte innse at det er et kapittel som er modent for avslutning. For det har vært utrolig gøy på alle måter. Vi har blitt kjent med utrolig mange hyggelige og fremfor alt flinke personer, og vi har igjen fått reise rundt på mange steder i landet der jeg aldri hadde fått anledning til å dra ellers. Det har rett og slett bare vært et æventyr.

Men, vi må jo, som alle andre, utvikle oss og finne på nye ting. Og dessuten blir det jo slitsomt i lengden å måtte passe på at 12 middelaldrende menn ikke er oppe for sent og at de rekker flyene sine dagen etterpå…

Uansett; vi har hatt det utrolig fint i løpet av denne produksjonen, håper vi kan gjøre noe lignende igjen.

Vegard


Velkommen.

Det skal ikke være lett å få opp en side som ser noenlunde skikkelig ut, men nå har vi ihvertfall kommet ett skritt videre.

Og det har vært en rimelig travel sommer, først med forestilliger i Oslo, så 5 uker i Tønsberg og til slutt en helg i Trondhjem der vi gjorde tre utrolig gøye gigs. Jeg liker å si “gigs” fordi jeg føler meg som en internasjonal rock-artist on tour.

Jeg håper at jeg kommer til å klare å oppdatere denne siden ofte, det hadde vært gøy. Men man kan jo altids sende meg en mail på vegard@ylvis.com.

Arrow!” said the bowman. “Black arrow! I have saved you to the last. You have never failed me and always I have recovered you. I had you from my father and he from of old. If ever you came from the forges of the true king under the Mountain, go now and speed well

Full on the town he fell. His last throes splintered it to sparks and gledes. The lake roared in. A vast steam leaped up, white in the sudden dark under the moon. There was a hiss, a gushing whirl, and then silence. And that was the end of Smaug and Esgaroth, but not of Bard.
