Liebster Award

Before getting to the Liebster award, we would like to let you guys know that the weekly updates will be moving to Wednesdays.

Consider this update a bonus.

Liebster Award

So Christian Schwager nominated us for a Liebster Award.

Here’s how it works (for those who might have forgotten, or still don’t know what the Liebster is):
The nominee’s task is to give 11 truths about themselves, answer the 11 questions given by the person who nominated them, make 11 questions of their own and nominate another 11 blogs to spread the contagion. The purpose of this is to discover new interesting blogs and have a bit of fun. Since Christian nominated the studio, he gets 22 answers to his question. Lets start!

11 Truths about us-

1. David’s desk is true chaos. If you would look at it at any given time, things are extraoirdinairy messy, but he claims he can find anything on the desk within seconds (we disagree on that!).

2.We got to know eachother in times when TFC and Counterstrike where in hype.

3.Our cat is called Khan, because it is very satisfactory to shout at him when he does something wrong.

4. We are a multi-lingual household, where even the children speak more than two languages.

5.Chocolate is a vegetable (or a salad).

6.We both have a keen interest in martial arts and have been avid practitioners of Kendo and Aikido for several years.

-Using no way as way; having no limitation as limitation

7. We can go from Bach to Iron Maiden in the same playlist.

8.Life begins with coffee.

There is no try, coffee or no coffee!

9. Between the two of us, we know a massive amount of fun movie-quotes, and often pick them apart in our day-to-day communication:

-Damnit Jim! I’m an artist, not a brainsurgeon!

10. …and we managed to infect the next generation with this as well.

-We are no longer the knights who say ni! We are now the knights who say ekki-ekki-ekki-pitang-zoom-boing!

11. Entering through our Studio’s doors is a better portal to another world then what the wardrobe ever was for Narnia.
