The northern lights: aurora borealisThe northern lights: aurora borealis You are outside on a clear summer’s night, when all of a sudden a flash catches your eye. You whirl around in bewilderment as the black night sky flashes and dances with a whirling array of colors. The northern horizon is draped with an iridescent green, deep blues, sharp violets, scarlet reds, and bright oranges and yellows. You stand awestruck as the colors descend, like a melting rainbow, across the sky. Then, as quickly as they appeared, they vanish witho

Even in specific groups there were divisions. A perfect example was the military. At this point in history everyone had an opinion about the military.

The beginning of Scandinavian Mythology goes backThe beginning of Scandinavian Mythology goes back before the Vikings, during the Scandinavian Bronze Age, which lasted from 1600 - 450 BC.

STRUM UN DRANSTRUM UN DRAN I have a friend, Matthew, who is a Wagnerian. For those of you who don\'t know what that exotic species is, "Wagnerian" denotes someone who listens to the operas of Richard Wagner and loves them to a degree bordering on the unreasonable. And he\'s continually amazed by the fact that I don\'t get off on Wagner to the degree that he does. He also hit me once when I referred to Wagner as a proto-Nazi. Granted we were both a bit drunk at the time, but even so, you may get a bit of an i
Titan AETitan AE Mathew Hall Titan A.E was the best book i have ever read by two authors, the detail was very good and was one of the only books that I can get a very good picture in my head.

The NibelungenliedThe Nibelungenlied The original aim of this paper was to encompass the bulk of Mythology\'s impact on the arts. Before very long I realized that to cover such a vast area, I would be treading dangerously close to a book\'s length project. I then decided to limit the topic to Mythology and its impact on music, specifically classical. Again, this was an enormous field to limit to a short research paper. After considerable deliberation I decided to focus primarily on the music of Richard Wagner (18
