Hi Nanna,
I love the energetic, passionate musical style of feminist rap group Reykjavíkurdætur. What are your thoughts on the group? I am not sure if they are still recruiting, but would you ever consider rapping on stage with them at one of their live shows?



Yeah whatevs like, those girls can’t recognise talent, I auditioned for them but they had no time for greatness and that’s on them.


Hey Nanna, 

What is the point of you? I’m surprised the mirror doesn’t crack when you look into it. 


Hey M.H,

What is the point of you? What is the point of anything? Is life meaningless? Are we all hurtling into the dark merciless void? Does the lava know it is hot? Do the clouds know they are fluffy?


Hey Nanna, 

Do they sell Coke Zero in Iceland? 


Hey Cokehead,

Uhm, yeah, they sell Coke Zero in Iceland.
