Dear friends and supporters,
The time has come to close the shop. Business has not been as usual for the last 12-16 months. I was losing money, even after firing all my employees. I have always enjoyed making sandwiches. But i enjoyed the customers the most. Sometimes work was hard and the pay lousy, but once in a while a beautiful woman, or a crazy story would warm my heart. The competitions were set up and meant in the same way. But as you have been able to see, last year or so, the website and competitions were neglected. Life was hard.
I have made a decision though. And those moments provide clarity. (never mind the outcome). I will leave Paris. I will leave you. At some point the hosting will run out. We will not return. Hopefully some spam-site will take over our spot and slowly erase our doings.
Stuff you send to us will be transfered to Flickr. The video will stay on Youtube. We will stay on linkedin. We will stay on facebook. But do not expect regular updates.
I have made a decision. I will be going to Asia. Maybe you ‘ll meet me in some thai village, cooking. But somehow i think nobody will find me.
We had fun. I hope you had it too.
after a freak accident involving icecream, a pogo stick and some coffeefilters the website was killed. Currently i am busy finding all the bits and pieces again. (dispersed among many harddisks and various versions of the site).
No backups found ; Is it necessary to upload all of your stuff again?

Below you can see the score sheet of the Crisis What Crisis competition. I devised a very simple system beforehand. I translated your top 5 into points and all the entries you didn’t choose in your top 5 were given 7 points. As you can see we had a clear winner.
For now: Congratulations to the top 5 winners in the Crisis What Crisis Competition.
Not all of the participants in the competition returned the judging forms as you can see. And almost all that did voted for their own entry in the competition. That was a bit dissapointing but understandable. As you can see this weighted system of voting has its drawbacks. Since all voters voted themselves first, the one with the most second places wins. And as we can see Ludens had the most first (actually second) places. four in total. And just 3 out of 10 jurymembers didn’t include Ludens in their top 5.
Anyway this wraps things up for this competition. We will be thinking about a new one soon. All ideas and support are welcome.

Congrats with your first prize.!!
I decide to write “TRUST YOUR MONEY TO PROFESSIONALS” in Portuguese, in mattresses after passing for them on the streets next to garbage dumpsters. With the banks providing no trust than ever, are they the real professionals? Theres a lot of old people in Portugal, so theres a lot a money in matresses. Are they the ones right, leaving there savings under it? I don’t know but if matresses could speak, i think they would say “trust me”.
