    I am of Norse descent, and german descent. I liked hearing this even though I don’t understand it. Speaking of Vikings, if you havn’t read the edda Voluspa, I’d recommend it.

    Learning all kinds of new things on this blog–about Volvo (i.e., bad company), about Freya (i.e., can sing and play guitar), about Vikings (i.e., Swedes).

    Great blog:

    Freya – you rock! I was invited and attended Rusnak’s Christmas party 2 years ago. Quite the shindig! I’ve owned 5 Volvo’s in my lifetime, and I loved them all – especially the Bertone(2)!

    I don’t know about Volvo – but your song is amazing; your rendition is fabulous! You deserve a Rolls Royce for this song! – hope somebody with the means does that for you…Just loved the style and the rendition.

    Great hat.

    I was a parking valet for a while. I always liked the way Volvos handled, but then I never drove one for more than a few hundred feet.

    I am studying Norse mythology in college right now. Far out girl, very far out. Loved it. And hey, you made it to the Freshly Pressed page. BIG DEAL.

    This is so funny and cute. So are you. I love your helmet.

    That was fun! I was just writing a blog post for this week about guitars, and I ran into this by coincidence. I like the subject. Awesome helmet! I just scored a cool helmet kind of like that (some pics on http://facebook.com/couchsurfingori in the fantasy-fest album).

    Good story telling via song.

    please delete this. I am just testing to see if an account is needed. Thanks

    Love your helmet. You are a hottie with a sense of humor. So does every Swedish American have one of those helmets?

    I can relate. Had similar prob with Lincoln LS trans. As Ford and Volvo often shared parts — with similar customer treatment regarding faulty vehicles — I empathize.

    Wish I had set up a web page like this to help solve my transmission issues. Now driving a Lexus. No more probs.

    You are a stunning example of why I love the internet!

  20. 34 bob November 22, 2009 at 10:50 pm

    No VOLVO for me. It was Volvo or Honda, after this video, I chose the Honda.

  21. 36 James November 22, 2009 at 11:20 pm

    I’ll play for you now !

    Love James

    Hahahahah!! Loved this!! I love how straight faced and serious you are while you’re singing, too funny.

    Sorry about the car problems…that really sucks too when customer service is nil.

  23. 41 amanda November 23, 2009 at 1:27 am

    hahaha soo awesome!!

  24. 42 nuansa chalid November 23, 2009 at 2:43 am

    Jacob, This is awesome! Thanks for telling me. You are truly a honorary member of Freya’s Army. I love that you are studying Norse Mythology. Best, F

    Wagner would have added this to the Ring Cycle, or it might have made the Elder Edda. Pretty slick material. As one of Nordic descent it calls to the ancient blood, although I had a LeCar that gave me fits and not a Volvo.

  26. 46 Ravi November 23, 2009 at 8:18 am

    Wow Amazing and You’re pretty smart,i like your charactory.

  27. 47 givenchance November 23, 2009 at 10:50 am
