Welcome to another chapter of the Loki Year 2016! Today we’ll discover that Loki and snakes don’t compute. Loki is famous for not liking snakes very much, especially if they let poison into his eyes. But before we explore Loki’s allergies, we’ll take a look at Thor’s journey to Utgard and Thor’s duel with Hrungnir from the eyes of Gods of Asgard : A Graphic Novel Interpretation of the Norse Myths. In Thor’s Journey to Utgard and Thor’s duel with Hrungnir, Thor plans to go to Jotunheim and fight Jotuns on the ground. Loki, of course, asks him to reconsider. Thor was going to go alone, but then he lets Loki join the fun. Because there’s a long journey ahead, they stop for dinner in a nearby farmhouse. Because it’s a penniless family, they have no meat. So, Thor offers one of his goats. They regenerate at night, so there should be no problem, right?

Welcome to another chapter of the Loki Year 2016! This time, we’ll keep calm and join Loki’s Army. Today we’re going to talk about the arrangement of Loki and Odin to end the World, the lay of Thrum, Loki’s Army, and we’ll also explore lessons 6 to 8 from book three of the Gospel of Loki. Let’s begin with the end of the World according to Loki : Nine Naughty Tales of the Trickster. Odin calls Loki in his presence to tell him a plan to make the Gods deeds live forever. He shows Loki a lonely figure that will come and destroy them: a man.

“Loki turned his head and saw a small, solitary figure walking across the sand. As he drew closer, Loki could make out a slight, bearded man wearing a simple one-piece garment that fell to just past his knees. His skin and hair were both dark, and he looked as though a strong wind would knock him over.
“And what do I see? A pathetic mortal who would barely make a light snack for one of my sons?”

That pathetic mortal turns out to be Jesus, and his followers are going to sweep up every single memory of Asgard. So, what to do to preserve their names, their memories and their deeds? Armageddon!

Let’s start with the Necklace of the Brisings. As you know, Freyja is the Goddess of beauty, but also war. So, how come the most beautiful Goddess of Asgard also became a terrifying one? We could blame Loki, but in fact, we also have to blame her insatiable wish for beauty. There were four famous Dwarves in Svartalfheim. They were famous because of the weapons and jewels they created. But there was something in particular that was famous because it was the most beautiful thing in all the realms: a necklace. Freyja, crazy to be the most beautiful creature to walk all realms, set foot in Svartalfheim and asked them the necklace. But they weren’t so eager to give it to her. Unless…

Loki Year 2016: Celebrity Culture

Welcome to another chapter of the Loki Year 2016! Sorry for the delay, but there’s been a lot these days, and it was hard to catch up. Today we’re going to explore what is celebrity culture from the point of view of Geek Anthropology of Loki’s Army and if it has something to do with Loki. We see celebrity culture as something related to the 21st century with phenomenons like the Beatles or the King. However, in some places celebrity culture goes back to the middle ages. In Japan, for example, the celebrities and fans were booming around Kabuki theaters. However, the type of celebrity culture we enjoy today is connected to technology and capitalism: we consume celebrity as much as we consume chocolate. Celebrities cannot exist without fans; that’s a reality. Thus, fans and celebrities are just heads and tails of the same coin: celebrities need fans to maintain their status, and fans need someone who makes them dream.
