Title: Drømde mik en drøm i nat Artist: National Museum of Denmark 11,496 plays



For people who are actually interested in how viking music might have sounded, “Drømde mik en drøm i nat" (/I dreamt a dream last night) is the earliest music (and lyrics) known in Scandinavia preserved on the last page of the (~1200-1300) Codex Runicus as rune notes.

The song and melody is still known and used today in most of Scandinavia, as a sort of folk-standard. This version, deceivingly slow in the beginning, is presented as close to the original sound of the years 900-1000 as historians think they can come.

This song might have survived because it was a gigantic hit, like the viking’s very own “Billie Jean”. A total pop slayer that stayed around long enough for music notes to be invented.

The more you know.

The Pop Surreal Paintings of Nicoletta Ceccoli

Ceccoli’s lifetime love and passion for children’s picture books came full circle when her first works were published in 1997. Since then, Ciccoli has earned numerous awards including the Andersen prize Baia Delle Favole. and in 2006, a Silver Medal from the Society of Illustrators in New York. Ceccoli currently lives and works as a full-time book illustrator in the republic of San Marino, Italy.


The famous white Lipizzaner Stallions are linked to the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Austria, for training and performance in classical dressage. Developed by the royal Habsburg family, the breed is named after a stud farm located in Lipica, Slovenia (“Lipizza” in Italian). Established in 1580 by Archduke Charles II, after a turbulent history and multiple relocations, the stud farm has now returned to Lipica and is currently thriving.

Though the dressage itself taught at the school was rumored to be based on war tactics used by cavalry mounts while in battle, it is in fact based on muscle and strength training. Four-year-old stallions come to the Spanish Riding School to train for an average of six years. Only Lipizzaner stallions are trained today for performance at the Spanish Riding School, though mares can study driving in harness and English riding.

In 2008, the Spanish Riding School welcomed its first two female riders, Hannah Zeitlhofer, an Austrian twenty-one-year-old, and Sojurner Morell, an eighteen-year-old from the UK. The school stated that they had never officially banned women, despite being only employed by men for over four hundred years.

The Lipizzaner Stallions tour all over the world, including performing in the Winter Riding School at the Hofburg Palace, and are the national animals of Slovenia.

Imagine how it would look if the Orion nebula is only four light years away - the distance the nearest star is to us, instead of 1,300 light years. It would be so bright that we wouldn’t be aware of the dark sky. We wouldn’t see other stars. The whole world would be the Orion nebula and the sun.
