Who else would I be?
Don't believe those nasty stories in book IV: lies, seditious lies and statistical provocations!
Anyway, got tired of hovering over T-A-G's bed this weekend, vainly trying to "encourage him" to write faster and winged my way over to the "living room: to his weird mirror thingy. [Apparently his office is the "dying room" because it's pretty dead in there, not hearing much from his typewriter]
Using his magic wand, I found this thing called Netflix, it's sort of like Mirror-On-Demand or something, showing you visions of alternate localverse storylines and such and found this weird set of visions called Ragnarok.
First things first, the pro/an-tagonists listento authentic Doom Metal! Woo Hoo! And in ancient Norse even! Causes them to spontaneously pseudo-rhythmically dance, rip hearts out of dear and eat wounded birds whole. You know, the sorts of things you do when you hear a rockin tune!
It's a very "interesting take" on a Post-Ragnarok Earth. Apparently this Earth has some sort of climate catastrophe that is threatening the planet and a few humans are getting bothered. Including a one-eyed Norse-Grandpa in a scooter and his cranky shopkeeper wife. (Yeah Yeah, it's Odin and Frigg. 9 times out of 10 if you see and old, one eyed, mobility impaired Norseman--it's Odin--just saying the old--dead--fart gets around)
So, of course, Giants are "bad" and Gods are "good" and all that BS, but that being said, not bad. Truth be told, I have always had a warm spot in my heart for Magne. Much nicer chap than his cranky old man, Thor. Fortunately, he bit the snake, or was it the snake bit him, or the damn wolf? I don't remember anymore, suffice to say he's gone, or at least in deep space with a walking tree, talking raccoon and a near-do-well son of a god....
So you should check this thing out, if for no other reason the rockin Jotunn-Music.
