Or maybe it should be I hate you, Mr Masked Writer? Why, well, maybe this
And to save you reading it all, especially as it wont make a ton of sense without the other 12 chapters, the quote is…
Another showed him as a proud Viking warrior, complete with the horns that Vikings didn’t wear until Wagner glued them onto some helmets.
Why do I hate this piece of reality, you might ask? Well, because as a woman, one of the parts I always wanted to play, despite the fact that I cant sing all that well, is to dress up like the Valkyrie women, with those amazing bodypieces, and the helmets with the horns, like the Viking women supposedly did, and then I find out that it wasnt really true! I suppose I shouldnt be totally surprised its all false, as I doubt many, if any women went on those Viking missions in the first place, but a girl/woman could dream.
Mind, I suppose that by now its so written into folklore, and that so few people would know the truth, that if the opportunity should arise, there’s no reason I couldnt still do it, while trying to remind myself that it was only a Wagner ornament, and not the real look, ah well…
In truth, I know, I only want to do it because of the crazy look, but I at least thought it was a genuine crazy outfit, but now even that dream is broken. As I say, in truth, there probably wasnt even any female Viking warriors, let alone wearing anything as excessive as that, but all the same.
But yes, you’re right, if someone came up to me, asked me to put on the whole Valkyrie costume, and perform, though hopefully not sing, of course I would, and love it!
Not sure I’ve ever included opera in any video, on either blog before, but there is always a first, and here it is!
