From the Mind of a Mad Man
“It happened one morning. It was a morning not unlike any other morning. I was lying there peacefully in my bed, just having woken up from a restful sleep, when out of nowhere a bold question comes rushing into my head, disturbing my thoughts like a bat out of hell.”http://www.zoundindustries.com/module/niklas-berg-creative-director/
