Rock'n rape

I got to be honest, this whole social media business can be quite taxing… The constant regurgitation of leftwing rightwing hullabaloo is making me rather queasy these days. But, I can’t boast of being a busy socialite with my dance card full. Sooo, like a moth to a flame…

You’ve heard about the festival rapes, right? …well, I came over this rant online which stated that a certain rock festival was patriarchal & that the reason why there weren’t rapes there was because of exactly that + the women who were violated didn’t report it because blablablaaaaah… *insert eye roll here* 
Let me tell you a little story… It’s about an awkward little girl who spent her first years on this earth with her family in a small black cabin in the woods. She picked up injured bumblebees & built them lego houses & fed them food & water, underneath her bed she had homemade scented rosewater which she stored in old jam jars… She even had a small pink grimoire which she wrote spells in. Eve…

Enough already.

Ever since I saw the mutilated body of 11 year old Ebba Åkerlund in April, I've been angry. Angry at apologetic people & looneys with love signs & pussyhats. This isn't the 70s folks. Unless you make a poisonous concoction & feed it to the people killing our kids, there's no f**king flower power, ok?

Source This Manchester attack made me go from angry to furious. I don't even know where to begin... This whole thing is unpalatable. Reading about how the shrapnel from the bomb had destroyed arteries, bones & nerves in the victims, leaving gaping holes... Do I agree with what the nurse said at the end of this article, that we should focus on the good that happened that night, absolutely. But ignoring who did it & why, no, absolutely not. Not this time around. As Norwegians we met our own extremist with a sea of flowers & candlelight. I just got numb back then, all those young lives lost...it was just unfathomable. But now I'm just plain old pisse…

How LOw can you go?

Today 193 voted against 117 from LO, the Norwegian confederation of trade unions, to boycott Israel. A jackhole even proclaimed "Enough is enough!" ...& probably pounded his chest at the same time as air deflated from his facial rectum. To me it seems like LO's more of a political party than an organisation looking after its own members.

Source How come people feel it's justified to boycott Israel, when a boycott of Saudi Arabia till example - which human rights abuse is far worse, is out of the question? Sometimes I wonder if the Blitz movement here in Norway altered the brain of many of the people we see in power today. Hell, even I was drawn to it for a little while...not in their heydays of course, cause I was like 4 back then...but I had a slight fling with it & I remember visiting their place in Oslo & I'm sorry (NOT), but it was a pile of sh*t & I felt like I was hemorrhaging braincells the more people I talked with there. It was an attempt a…

Little nugget of s**t.

There's one thing I get extremely triggered by. It's like my blood boils whenever I catch a glimpse of it... Swedish people lecturing about the invasion of Norway during the second world war. So unfortunately Twitterverse revealed a little nugget of s**t today, which contained just that. So here I am, unable to resist the resurgence of rambling rushing through the neutrons in my brain all the way down to my fingertips.


Source My mother & grandmother said they would never ever forgive the Swedes for letting the Nazis march through Sweden & invade us. I guess I'm continuing that tradition. Personally I don't give a flying f**k about them letting Norwegian troops train in Sweden, etc. during the war. It does not take away their ridiculous neutral stance to begin with...& it sure as hell does not excuse treacherous acts against Norwegians. Now I know there are plenty of Norwegians who joined the ranks of Nazi collaborators. We have a prime example in the hugest d…

Oh, deer...

We in Norway are such a weird bunch. We hunker down in front of our TVs & portable devices & watch minute by minute as water flow, trains slither through the landscape & pork ribs cook. Now a lot of us are watching the reindeer migrate...yes, you read that right. 
Source I love that it's one of the Sami tradition that's still being upheld. My ancestors on my Farmor's (Father's mother's) side was Sami & several of them had huge reindeer herds. I remember reading that one of them was referred to as a reindeer herder, plus a Lensman & I find that very interesting...but my brain's kinda fried these days & I haven't got the papers in front of me, so I can't delve deeper into it at the moment unfortunately. 
Watching this program though makes me imagine how it was for them. Images that I must admit were a tad bit romanticised at first... With lavvus being raised, people around bonfires, filling the night with joik & old tales...all wh…

Je suis tired of this s**t.

When I woke up this morning my first reaction to what occurred during my ever so deep slumber was: Wooooaaah folks, time to get our victory gardens in order... It seems like WWIII's just around the corner. 



I'm in utter disbelief how someone can order an attack on another country based on 'maybe & most likely'...& Trump didn't even get a congressional approval, as he promised. Not that promises made by politicians should be believed, but I had an inkling of hope you know? ...& now reports come in that Daesh moved in on the Syrian Army at just around the same time of the attack. It was repelled, but still. Oh, & apparently it's claimed that some children were killed in the U.S. missile strike. I admit my knowledge of military strategy & tactics is lacking, but I seriously doubt that it would be in Assad's best interest to use chemical weapons in an attack. Especially now that he had the upper hand. It just goes against reason. But if he di…

Norway's pillaging ways

I haven’t really had anything to write about in quite some time. But logging on to Facebook today made me grin...& quite fired up actually & this is why:

As a Norwegian who loves her heritage to bits it kinda got to me that someone would write that. But mostly because I’m one of those who doesn’t eat farmed fish & I haven’t done so in years. It’s been my silent protest. Silent, cause I learned a long time ago that my single voice doesn’t have an impact on politicians or the so called “system”. But I recon my wallet has…so my conclusion was to just stop buying their products. My hope is that more Norwegians will do the same, but most of them are still in the dark when it comes to what an impact our current fish-farming industries have on our coasts…& even more so on other countries’ coasts. I had a hope the Norwegian industry that established internationally, would at least do it in an ethical way… With the mariculture in closed tanks with a system which would clean the …
