*Chewing my way through the absurdly salt fish eaten in my region. The saltiness is a side effect of conserving the fish*

You know, this could be even more salty. I am positive i need to add extra salt on this already soaked in salt fish dish.

André Burakovsky and his new friends on ice 


The Swedes + Eller from the Cooking with the Caps cookbook.

  • Mojo is the only one of them who managed to provide a recipe from a family member.
  • In fact, I am not convinced Mojo didn’t immediately scream “DIBS ON MEATBALLS!” as soon as the team said everyone needed to come up with a recipe, and all the other Swedes sulked.
  • Nicklas Backstrom: proud supporter of LoveBeets.com.
  • Nicky’s recipe is a misleading because it actually only involves a single beet.
  • Andre’s recipe probably serves either four people or one and a half Tom Wilsons.
  • Eller’s recipe has nothing to make fun of so all I can do is look at his picture and conclude he and Philipp Grubauer came into training camp with the same haircut, had to rock-paper-scissors over who got to keep it, and Grubi won.

You're Swedish? No way! I can't believe one of my favorite artists is from the same country as me!

It’s always so fun finding other swedes!! Thank you so much! ;7;


they have buckets? in our country these used to be built over a big hole and when it was too full you’d call a specialist with a truck that could kinda vaccuum it up. fortunately they all but disappeared by now


yup a bucket. back in the 1990s we just dug down the poo etc in the backyard forest, which we were not allowed to do really, but we had no where to put it. then we carried back empty bucket to outhouse, one assume (i was small child back then so i just have memories of watching my parents doing it in the distance)

nowadays we put a lid on the bucket and carry it to a special poo bucket dumpster. about weekly a truck comes by and pick that up.

but no specialists involved sadly. it is all about moving, cleaning, and taking care of that poo bucket yourself. THIS is why i voting for my families summer house to get one of the many other more technically advanced methods of dealing with poo. i just don’t want to carry that poo bucket to the poo dumpster….. haha

although i will propabably not be able to fully avoid dealing with the poo personally in some way. sweden is not much for specialists coming and cleaning away your dirt for you. everything is always so damn diy.

that beeing said, when i say bucket, the bucket is underneath a proper built toilett seat. so it is not like, we just poo in a bucket. there is an art to it. as previous mentioned romantizing of the outhouses shows. a picture of how the indoors of the outhouse is. the bucket is under the toilett seat. same kind of logic as a water closet kinda.

also i suspect we have outhouses with seperate buckets CAUSE if it would be ground underneath the toilett seat, it would freeze during the winter. and you would have a unpleasant “hacking lose human poo and pee from frozen ground” job infront of you. nobody want that. so bucket!



The SDHL is a league formed/renewed for the 2016/17 season and onward (formerly known as Riksserien).The league consists of Sweden’s elite women’s hockey teams. The league strives to develop women’s hockey, through organizing teams, resources and partners.

Other than swedes and north americans the league has players from several European countries, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Germany etc.
At the start of this season a couple of former NWHL players found themselves playing in the SDHL. Most recently US olympian and former NWHL player Molly Engstrom joined Djurgårdens IF.

AIK, Brynäs IF, Djurgårdens IF, HV 71, IF Sundsvall Hockey, Leksands IF, Linköping HC, Luleå HF, MODO Hockey, SDE HF

I'm back with more Night At The Museum headcanons! Henrik Lundqvist as a king of the Swedish Empire; Hags, Horny and any other NHL Swedes who aren't in the Viking exhibit are his generals, soldiers, ect. Phil and maybe a couple of the others are miners who traveled north during the Yukon gold rush. Horny takes to hanging out with the Vikings since they speak Swedish, and they tell such interesting stories. Phil (whose exhibit is next to the Russians) is asked by their general Alexander to ...

… deliver a note to “the most beautiful viking, with long hair like spun gold and eyes like emeralds, and a smile as bright as the sun”. He doesn’t give a name, but Phil is too intimidated by the loud Russian who won’t stop talking about this guy to ask for one. When he gets there, he knows immediately who it’s for, anyway. Sure, his armour looks more like the guys from the “great religious empires of Europe” exhibits than the other vikings, and his eyes are blue not green, …

… but he’s with the vikings and the Russian general is weird enough that he could get his lover’s eye colour wrong. Carl is incredibly flattered, Nicky thinks it’s hilarious and goes off to tell Alex to stop terrifying the poor gold miners, and Phil is embarrassed but happy that he got to meet such a beautiful man. He becomes a regular in the “great religious empires of Europe” room after that.

I miss Alicia Online a lot and it’s been several months since they shut it down. Basically, Alicia Online was a korean mmo game where you participated in horse races. A little bit like Mario kart since it was possible to pick up different magic items and then use different magic attacks on the others in the race. 

I mean I’m not crazy about horse games because most of them are made for girls age 5-13 or something but Alica Online was such a cool game I mean look at this

You could choose between some really rad outfits and even put som really cool armors on your horse

(this is sort of the waiting room before the race)

the races are fucking wild, there’s lots of action (you could send lightning bolts on people and they’d fall over with their horse and everything, it was crazy) and I had a great time playing this

You had your own farm where you could keep lots of horses, get quests, get visits from your friends (and even keep baby horses!!)

you could ride around just doing nothing

play with your horses

and care for your horses (also I love the fact that the horses are fucking huge)

And those were all the crappy screenshots I got. So yeah I really hope they’ll bring it back (which they most likely will not) because I had so much fun playing this with my friends and even found some other Swedes that I started talking to! 

I found a fairly decent video showing some of the magic races


Ya’ll pls it’s been 3 years since i made this post, i know the game is back, let me rest

The Outsiders family Heritage/origins headcanons

The Curtis’ (my babes): As much as I love the whole headcanon thing that “The Curtis’ were French”, I’d like to say that I think they were at lest half French. mostly going off the immigration of the time period; most Irish, Irish-scots, Italians, and Germans along with others settled in places like Oklahoma and other back road/fly over states and worked on the rail roads, and the boys looks; Pony with the auburn hair, green eyes and all. I think it’s safe to say that they were at lest Half Irish, if not full blood Irish. They’d mostly be second generation and their grandfather(s) would have worked on the rail roads. I feel they’d know some of the French and/or Gaelic, there parents would speak it and they just picked it up while they grew. After the death of there parents they rarely use French and/or Gaelic; Darry uses to itemidate Pony and Soda into doing what there told, Soda to get girls and comfort pony or Darry, and when pissed Pony will more than likely mumble or yell at you in that language.

Dallas (he’s fave): I definitely feel that he would have some Russian ancestry, and for the sake of not knowing much about his family or past life (especially in New York). Again going off the immigration of the time; most Russians, some Irish, Italians, Greeks, and Swedes (also other such northern and Eastern Europeans) choosing to go farther north such places like New York, his actions and the way he acts; not including what he’s picked up from living on the streets but how through family and traditions on how he acts, and his looks are definitely on the northern/Eastern European side of things with his blue eyes and almost white hair. His mom would most likely be a second generation and his father either a first generation or third. Giving the Cold War reaching its heights during the 50/60s he probably kept his Russian past a secret. Also knowing that his father ran off to join the Russian mafia. I also feel he would know Russian; he’s mostly be somewhat fluent thanks to his mom and most of the gang he was in up there consisting of other Russians. But he’d never speak Russian in front of the gang in Tulsa; Pony had only ever caught him speaking it once when he was pissed (like steam out the ears pissed) and it scared the shit out of him.

Johnny (smol son): He would be a third generation Italian-American, possible Puerto Rican mix. His mother would be Italian while his father would be either half Italian/ half Puerto Rican; or full blooded Italian. More than likely half, The absence of his grandfather’s presence in both his and his father’s life, they chose to embrace the more Italian side of things. Johnny defiantly knows and using Italian on a frequent basses. Either to suduce someone, speaks it out of anger, or just talks behind someone’s back.

Steve (this nerd): Since he’s not described much in the book, unlike most characters, it’s safe to say this one could be a bit more difficult to headcanon but I defiantly think German ancestry is the way to go. Fourth generation German, his great-grandfather immigrated to the US a few years before WW2. His grandfather mostly worked on the rail roads. I think he wouldn’t know any of the German language: his father rarely speaking it- and no living grandparents. (Yay first one in the gang to not be exotic little fuck)

Two-Bit (love himmmmm): He would defiantly be Greek-Italian American, second generation Greek from his mom and third generation Italian from his dad. His grandfather would have worked on the rail roads for a short period of time before finding something better to do. Two-bit would definitely know Greek more than Italian giving his fathers absence and his mothers tendency to speak Greek; sometimes for no reason at all. This also shows through in his heavy drinking.

The Shepards; Again not much to go off of, there somewhat described with dark hair and dark blue eyes. They only ever mentioned a handful of times through the Hintonverse. But with how the are defined by the fandom and fanfics on acting and such I believe it’s safe to say just like Dallas, they have Eastern European ancestry. More than likely they’d be half Russian, half Romanian. With not much to go by except the small amount we know about them; they way they good, the general way they act (at least out in public), how the fandom portrays them, and very little no one information about the home life. I’d assume they’d be second or third generation Russian-Romanian American, assuming from the fandoms and fanfics, even though both parents are abusive and almost absent in life. But the mother seams to be more present in the kids lifes. The mother would more then likely be where the Romanian dna comes in. Tim, Curly, and Angela would know some Romanian and some Russian. (Russian from their dad stumbling in drunk cursing and screaming in Russian, Romanian from there mother screaming and muttering to herself. But note although Russian and Romanian sound similar but are different in many ways.) Tim would use this to his advantage to scare people, Curly would speak it all the time, most of the time it’s to seduce pony (sorry I had to throw Purly in here somewhere), Angela on the other hand rarely speaks it- finding no reason in it.

((I’m sorry all these are really shitty bc I just thought about this out of the blue and wrote it all down in like 5 minutes flat, but honestly these are just my opinions and thoughts on a more in depth backstory to all my favorite characters. These were not made to offend anyone or start any arguments. Hope you liked them!))

What did she say about Hope Solo?

She was interviewed watching the video of Hope:

“I think it is entirely too hard a punishment for the comment. I think far worse things have been said after matches than what Hope said then. I think if the federation had talked to her and maybe given her a reprimand that would’ve been more than enough. I can understand why she said it then, she was angry. She was disappointed - the Americans have never gone out so early. Obviously it was very difficult and she was very disappointed.” said Dahlkvist who reacts strongly when she sees the video of Hope Solo breaking down when she receives news of the six-month suspension. “I think it’s terrible/horrible, especially when you see how upset she is. This is a person who has sacrificed her entire life for football, and then she gets this punishment. I think it’s really terrible/sad. I really feel for Hope.”

militance also means: support each other.

it’s radical. it’s important.

The picture shows two people embracing each other after anti-fascists were trampled down by police horses in Malmö/Sweden at a protest against the SVP on August 28, 2014.

The level of detail in Unravel is amazing and very personal

I’ve only watched Cry’s first LP episode of Unravel, so I do not yet know everything in the game. Anyway…

As a swedish person, this game hits me really close to home in my heart. In the beginning of the game you see an old woman in her little house out in the countryside, and while a lot of americans just see that as just any other house, to many swedes it’s a different story.

You see, every detail in the surroundings in this game is something I’ve seen when I grew up and visited any elders home. The carpet, the furniture, the wallpaper, the brass pots hanging on the wall etc… every little thing in this game, even down to what kind of apples that appears in the first level, is sweden. The little pillow with the saying “Happiness blossom from simple things” embroidered in swedish is such a wonderful touch.

You can really really tell this game is designed with lots of care and love, and how personal it must be for Martin Sahlin, the creator.

That house in the beginning of the game is a house I’ve visited so many times as a child, when visiting the old grumpy neighbour to ask if I could have some of the apples from his yard. Or my own grandma’s interior with that same pastel colored flower patterned wallpaper, and that very old-timey furnace.

For you americans playing Unravel, take this into consideration, every object and detail in this game are things that exists in reality - especially in an old little swedish womans home. If you see a box with some odd brand written on it, chances are that is a real thing that can be found in Sweden.

I really love this kind of stuff, because very often I’ve felt that Sweden doesn’t really have such a “interesting environment” compared to the amazing cities in America or the rest of the world. No big cool animals or extreme weather. But games like Unravel proves me otherwise, that yes the little things we have is actually p neat looking for other people.

swedish enlightment upper class be like

i am better at french then actual french speaking people. thihi!

no i have never spoken to, or heard, a native french speaker talking. we just speak french to other upper class swedes to feel cool. swedish is just not snobbish enough for us, ya feel?
