‘Doomsday’ seed vault meant to survive global disasters breached by climate change
The seed bank designed to preserve the world’s crops and plants in the event of global disaster isn’t prepared to withstand the greatest global disaster facing our planet: global warming. Melting...

So, I only post this because 1. I care about our planet and climate change, and 2. I only really noticed because of “The Futurama Holiday Spectacular.” I’m just that obsessed, I guess.

Norwegian Christmas songs (and also some Swedish)

A compilation of some christmas songs in Norwegian (and Swedish) because it is christmas soon :)


En stjerne skinner i natt

Sonjas sang til julestjernen

Vi tenner våre lykter

På låven sitter nissen

Himmel på jord

Nordnorsk julesalme

Jul i svingen


Vårres jul

Så går vi rundt om en enebærbusk

Gje meg handa di venn

Jeg er så glad hver julekveld

Det lyser i stille grender


It’s hard to be a nissemann (Norwenglish, lmao)

Santa Lucia (norsk ver.)

Bjelleklang (norsk ver.)

Mitt hjerte alltid vanker (norsk ver.)

Glade jul (norsk ver.)

Deilig er jorden (norsk ver.)

(Home for christmas) This one is in English but the artist and the movie it was made for is norwegian and it’s a nice song so I’m adding it.


Julen är här

Himlen i min famn

Nu tändas tusen juleljus

Jul, jul, strålande jul

Låt mig få tända ett ljus

O helga natt (svensk ver.)

Traditional Desserts (including Christmasy Mor Monsen Kake)!  Many Viking Age sweets have been modernized but still retain their status as regional favorites.


Episode Review S8E01: Deep Breath - "I'm not your boyfriend."

Title: “Deep Breath”

Written by: Steven Moffat

Season: reboot Season 8

Episode: 1

Feminist grade: B

Overall grade: B+

“Everybody take five.”

Make no mistake, ladies, gentlemen, and variations thereupon, this new era of Doctor Who is being carried solidly on the shoulders of Peter Capaldi. Attack eyebrows or no attack eyebrows, the man can play complexity. It isn’t easy to simultaneously show intelligence and befuddlement, as this episode demands, but he has done it.

Warning: like all my reviews, here be spoilers!
