Happy New Year

(Source)
So, it's a new year, calendrically speaking. I wasn't sure what to have as the inaugural post. Then I thought, "Hhmm, perhaps a discussion of some new TV thing I'm binge watching."

So during my search (and now I guess you can imagine what it is I'm binge watching) I ran across that image above. Ties in with my latest addiction and with the start of a new year.

I mean hirsute dudes who don't seem to bathe much, who fight and drink all the time (among other things), and carry swords and axes, what's not to like?

Seriously though, Happy New Year to all who stop by here.

Godt nytår!

    1. It should. My only concern is the HA (which seems reasonable for a fictional tale, the settings, weapons, boats, etc.) and the PSP. Not sure if a feminine spousal unit would care for it. Though there is a love story in there. I think.

      As to WTS and D&D? Off the charts.

  3. Happy New Year Sarge! Not sure about your Missus but I have enjoyed The Vikings. That could be because I'm descended from them...but it is a very good show. Have only watched the first season (got binging on other stuff) but plan to go back to it. Try it out with your lovely bride...she may surprise you.

    1. She might like it but we're on different TV schedules. She's binge watching some new Korean shows, while I have my Vikings.

      Finished the first season Saturday night, haven't started two yet, still catching my breath so to speak. The loss of Leif and Gyda was unexpected, to say the least.

    1. Um, the first recorded use of Chanters from the readership.

      I guess that's a done deal then?

      Happy New Year Paul.

    2. It's hard to believe that 2017 won't be better than '16, but then, Murphy was an optimist! Happy New Year!

  7. A healthy & happy New Year to all at The Chant!
    I have to disagree with this personification of Ragnar: I view the future as not ahead of us, but overcoming us from behind; the past is in front.
    Think about it. Things in the near past are clear, as if they were only a little while ago, because some are. The further they recede, the more difficult to see clearly; things get a little blurry. Things too far in the past can be rather dim, some so that only the bare outlines can be discerned. Exceptions to all this are the things that are really big. They tend to stand out & are always there, like a mountain, although if further away, the details can be hard to make out.
    The future, of course, whips over & past us with amazing speed, & can't be seen at all.

    1. I'm not going to tell Ragnar you disagree with him!

  8. I'm sure happy that your name isn't Gregory, Sarge.
    Otherwise we'd be Gregorian Chanters NTTAWWT

  9. This comment is so I will have an even number of comments. Don't ask.

    No, I'm not OCD.

    Well, maybe a little.

  10. And yes, you are- a lot. And it's CDO- in alphabetical order like it's supposed to be.

    1. Dammit. I forgot to look at the schedule.

      Now I need to reschedule my sim time. Damn!

Just be polite... that's all I ask. (For Buck)
