In case you were drunk off mead or busy raiding some near by town, here's a brief overview of the headlines you missed today on Odin's Eye Media:

Wyrd Words: Did the Vikings Have Totem Animals?


"There’s an interesting debate that I’ve seen drifting about the edges of the Heathen community for years, and (interestingly) it’s one of the only topics that I’ve ever seen debated more often in person than in the general Heathen “Blog’o’sphere”. Did the ancient Heathens have some concept of a “spirit guide” or “totem animal?” I’ve met plenty of Heathens who are perfectly happy to tell you all about their spirit animal, and I’ve also seen plenty who seem offended by the notion; claiming that such an idea is a holdover from Wicca rather than a “proper” Heathen practice.

A great article looking at totems in a different way I never will see like before.

"Present day movies show elves as beautiful beings who help people in their times of need. However, the original ancient form of these beings was quite hostile towards humans. Often enough, elves would lure humans to their death. The purpose of this article is to unmask and reveal the true identity of elves and to expose their hostility towards the human race."
