The Defenders

More Jessica Jones? Yes please. This might be enough to get me to finish Iron Fist.

Throw in Misty, Claire, and Stick (fingers crossed for Colleen, Karen, Foggy too) and colour me excited.

If you’re not following Dr Jackson Crawford (aka the Cowboy Viking) you’re missing out. Even if you have only a passing interest in Old Norse myth, language, or culture I defy you to not find his videos fascinating. Hell, if you speak English then his content is relevant to you whether you’re interested in Old Norse or not.

This video talks about old Norse words that made their way into modern English.

The Sk/Sh/Sch distinction is fun to think about, I imagine not all pairs are directly from Old Norse but Skiff/Ship springs to mind (it’s our old friend Grimm’s law!) and in the kitchen this morning Laura thought of School (as in fish) and Shoal. Shell and scale might fall into this too?

Stray thought: Wilson Fish sounds like a very different Daredevil villan.

Looks the business.

If you can’t wait until April and fancy a fix I’d recommend this.
