Troll kalla mik
tungl sjötrungnis,
auðsug jötuns,
élsólar böl,
vilsinn völu,
vörð náfjarðar,
hvélsvelg himins –
hvat's troll nema þat?



They call me Troll;
Gnawer of the Moon,
Giant of the Gale-blasts,
Curse of the rain-hall,
Companion of the Sibyl,
Nightroaming hag,
Swallower of the loaf of heaven.
What is a Troll but that?

- from Skáldskaparmál



I've once mentioned that I'm not too fond of trolls. This is true to a point, but to be precise, what I'm not fond of is the stupid, blundering troll. The sinister, creepy troll on the other hand? They are a whole other category. So I thought – why not make a tribute to the trolls I do like? Well, here is my attempt at an audio-visual tribute to trolls.
