Odin is a pretty well known and popular god. He is considered the all father but that is a more literary theme later on. Skaldic poetry, pre-Christian Viking poetry, is the father of Baldr, Thor, and Vali but Snorri Sturluson in the 13th century added Heimdall, Týr, Bragi, Vidarr, and Hodr as his sons making him all father. He is the wisest of wise and a god of war, death, poetry, runes, and magic. He is an Aesir and helped create the nine worlds under Yggdrasil. He rules over Asgard and collects the slain in Vahalla.

For so many reasons this playlist labeled “Laurel” has infected me. It has inserted hairy tentacles beneath my skin and will never recede from within my flesh. They’re like the barbed penes of various winged insects. Once their inside, they never leave, by design.
A Filmmaker's Guide to: Sci-Fi and Fantasy
In this chapter of ‘the filmmaker’s guide’ we’re actually going to be learning about literature and film together. I understand that many of you are sitting in university during difficult times and finding it increasingly hard to study and I understand that many of you who are not at university or not planning on it are possibly stuck of what to do, need a break or even need to catch up on learning film before you get to the next level. This guide will be brief but will also contain: new vocabulary, concepts and theories, films to watch and we will be exploring something taboo until now in the ‘filmmaker’s guide’ - academia (abyss opens). Each article will explore a different concept of film, philosophy, literature or bibliography/filmography etc. in order to give you something new to learn each time we see each other. You can use some of the words amongst family and friends to sound clever or you can get back to me (email in bio) and tell me how you’re doing. So, strap in and prepare for the filmmaker’s guide to film studies because it is going to be one wild ride.

'Event Horizon' Will Get a Well-Deserved Second Chance as New Amazon TV Series
There is no doubt we are living in the age of the reboot. It seems that every time you see a trailer or read a headline about the latest news on upcoming projects the result is almost alarmingly similar. Here comes another remake of an old movie or TV show. Sometimes it makes you wonder why someone would want to redo something that seemed perfect the first time around. It feels like a lot to live up to, and not every endeavor succeeds. Would it not make much more sense to revisit a title that perhaps failed to meet its full potential? There are many examples out there that if given a proper update could go from cult classic to exemplary. That is why the news of Amazon’s next nostalgic endeavor getting the TV series treatment is one everyone should be paying attention too. Paul W.S. Anderson’s gloriously gruesome film Event Horizon could very well become Prime’s next best series.
