Varg doesn’t know how good he has it.
But then, I was listening to the Last Podcast on the Left episodes on the “Norwegian Black Metal Scene” (about the whole Mayhem / Varg / Euronymous murder mess) and it was stated that one of these dork’s grievances was that life was “too good”!
Varg resents that his country is too nice and merciful with it’s strong safety net and focus on peace and Progressive values. He wants a hard world where men can be forced to live hard and become hard so they can be macho warriors and whatever.
He won’t move to a place that’s actually like that because he’s also a “Blood & Soul” weirdo who fetishizes his ethnicity (white), sub-ethnicity (Nordic) and his Nordic land and history (all that Norse Viking ‘barbarian warrior’, ‘Olden Pagan tymes’ stuff… which is also hilarious since the Old Deities were often gender-bending, promiscuous, hard-drinking party animals and Norse women tended to have more rights than elsewhere. The Norse also traded and hung out with Mid-Eastern Muslims, Turks, etc.).
He’s a weirdo with antiquated views on gender roles who fetishizes machismo, war, hardness, etc. and finds a peaceful world with a high quality of life very boring and “softening”.
Funny thing is, if he got his wish, he probably would be miserable… as all these far-right warlord wannabees turn out to be and, deep-down, he only wants an idealized existence where he’s the top-banana “Lord Humongous” and everything is easy only for HIM.
I guess that also explains why he wears a huge beard now and has “let himself go”. Don’t want to remain a whisper-thin prettyboy with flowing tresses because people might get the wrong ideas about him a we can’t have thaaaaat!…
… PICTURED (UP & DOWN): Young Prettyboy Varg. Old Ugly Beardie Geezer Varg.
Young Black Metal Prettyboy Varg definitely resents all the kinky slashfic floating around of him… especially the “Varg / Euronymous” stuff… REAAAALLLYYYY gets his homophobic goat!
… Making a prettyboy white supremacist homophobe who fails Norse Paganism forever and follows a “Disney Theme Park / Pop-Culture” version of “Norse-ness” into a closet-case banging the guy he hates is sweet revenge.
Although the younger version seemed (superficially) “cooler” (and a lot easier on the eyes) he’s still a murderer and both versions of Varg are still raging bigoted losers.
Sure, there’s the passage of time and aging but… STILL!…
Ya can’t fight aging but you can age and still be fit and hot. Better to age like Brad Pitt than Marlon Brando!
