so is it a thing in (american) english to use “texas” as a word for like, something that’s out of control or chaotic, or as like, “crazy”? like “that party last weekend was totally texas!”
because that is a thing people say in norwegian and i just think it’s important for americans to know that?
this is the best thing I’ve ever heard
So true and delightful
ave-lucha said: hey, do you know any movies based on norse mythology? thanks
Hello ave-lucha and thank you for the ask.
There is a pretty full list of films that have Norse Mythology, Scandinavian folklore and Viking Era influences here.
There are also some modern Scandinavian films (of varying quality) that deal with folketro (folk belief) and mythology:
- Trolljegeren (Trollhunter) which is (surprisingly) about Trolls
- Thale which is a story about a Huldra
- Vittra (Wither) which is an “Evil Dead” type horror featuring a creature from folklore called a Vittra (related to Vættr)
- Gåten Ragnarok (Ragnarok) which is an adventure story about Norse Myth
I hope that helps
