As you can see I'm a Viking. I enjoy pillaging, plundering, long seafaring voyages and strolls on sandy beaches at sunset.

I'm an atheist, at least I have been since Thor, Odin and Loki stopped answering my text messages and blocked me on Skype.

You can find me on Youtube as TitenSxull

My blog is at godlessblogger.blogspot.com

On Twitter as TitenSxull

On Abovetopsecret.com as Titen-Sxull

On Xbox Live as TITEN SXULL

And on Fanfiction.net as Titen-Sxull

So you get the idea, that's pretty much my favorite pseudonym to use on the interweb. Most people pronounce it Tit-en Skull, those people are wrong. It's pronounced Titan Zull, because the X makes a Z sound.
