Icelandic descendants of Vikings singing a hymn in a German train station. They totally need to be on the next Thor soundtrack.
Oh man oh man oh man. 6 guys, and it FILLS THE SPACE. Luck of the architecture - and they know how to pull it off. Nothing is easy making vocal music in a space not built for it. I want to do this kind of thing - randomly perform multipart harmony in public spaces.
To be safe, secure, and comfortable is, I feel, just another way to signify death. People who teach this lifestyle and children who live it are not really living at all. Our most vivid memories are of times we were not all that safe, secure, and definitely not comfortable…
Teach children to live on the edge, and to seek adventure, excitement, and intensity in living. I am not suggesting that children put their lives in danger, or take unnecessary risks. All I am saying is that children should be able to run wild in the rain, get wet, get dirty. Teach children to have fun and not to give discomfort too much power.

Dalriada – Dál Riata The people of the Kingdom of Dál Riata spoke a Q-Celtic Goidelic language. They lived in Argyll on the West Coast of what is now Scotland from around AD 400. The Gaels of Dál Riata are often called ‘the Scots’ as the Romans named the Q-Celtic speaking peoples of Ireland and Argyll ‘the Scotti’ which probably meant ‘pirates’. The Scotti attacked Roman shipping off the west coast. Only twelve miles of sea separates the Mull of Kintyre from Antrim. The Gaels of Dál Riata and Antrim traded across the sea routes, intermarried and sometimes fought.
