Obsidian Clouds won the Liebster Award!

So, good news, rattle your bones and oil your chains, because Obsidian Clouds just won the Liebster Award!

Many thanks to Cassie Carnage at Cassie Carnage's House of Horror for nominating me for this award, which according to the rules, means I automatically won it, along with ten other excellent bloggers.

So, Liebster. It's a German word (Pronounced leeb-shter according to my brother) meaning something along the lines of 'Dearest' or 'Sweetheart'. The Liebster award was started a few years back by a German Blogger (duh!) as a sort of pat-on-the-back encouragement for new bloggers. 

The Liebster is an award for bloggers from fellow bloggers. If you get nominated, you win! Then you have to nominate eleven other new and upcoming blogs which deserve attention.

So, here are the:

Unofficial Official Rules 

1. Bloggers who have been nominated must link back to the person who nominated them.

2. Nominees must answer the 11 questions given to them by the person who nominated them.
Why does it have to be 11? I've no idea. But you'll find my list of questions at the bottom.

3. Nominees must also nominate 11 of their favorite bloggers (who have less than 200 followers) and assign them 11 questions to answer.
Hmm... 11 again. (By the way, I've got no idea how to check how many followers a blog has, so if your blog has more than 200, let it slide. I'll make sure no one comes to know.)

4.  You cannot nominate someone who nominated you.
Okay, that makes sense. It would cause a never-ending Internet paradox.

5. You are not in any way obligated to participate.
But don't be spoilsports guys! Spread the cheer!

So, here goes, Cassie's questions:

1. What angers you the most when watching a movie in theaters?
People, obviously. Specifically, people moving in front of you during the crucial scenes.

2. What do you love about watching movies in theaters?
Well, the whole scale of the thing. It's an immersive, filling experience, which you share with a group of people who are just as interested in the movie as you are (hopefully). Also, there are very few annoying interruptions and diversions.

3. Name a movie you never want to watch. Ever.
That Justin Bieber movie. Never. Not even if someone was going to kill me otherwise. Burn that shit in holy oil and bury the ashes on Pluto. Or on an asteroid travelling to another galaxy.

4. Name a movie you're ashamed you haven't seen yet.
Okay, that would have to be Fight Club. Even though I've told people I've seen it. My bad. Truly ashamed.
Thing is, I already read out about the plot twist on a article. Never really got around to seeing it after that.

5. Favorite weekend hangout?
I'm not much of an outdoors guy, and I prefer to spend the weekend reading a good book. Or playing with my dog. Nowadays however, with my studies and all, don't really get time to do that either.

6. Favorite band or music artist for the past week?
Recently, John Mayer. Continuum is awesome.

7. 3D. Yay or Nay?
Nay, at least until better 3D glasses are available in all cinemas. In my opinion, the 3D content really isn't impressive enough to remedy the problem of watching less vivid movies.

8. Name a movie you wish you could have been on the set while it was filming.
I was going to say Jackass, but then I realized what that would entail. Dear God no.
So I would have to say Lord of the Rings. Being on those magnificent sets and locations would be epic.

9. How do you stream movies (Computer, Blu-ray Player, Game Consoles like PS4 and Wii)?
On my computer and tablet. Game consoles and me don't get along.

10. What are your top five favorite movie podcasts to listen to?
Um...okay, I don't really listen to podcasts.

11. Who is your movie celebrity crush? You have to answer for both guys and girls.
Both, eh? Answering from the Boys side, Cameron Diaz. She's funny and beautiful, and can be the very epitome of dumb blonde if she wishes.
From the Girls side, wel... Robert Downey Jr. for obvious reasons. He's funny, smart, handsome...and he's Iron Man.

So, all done! 
Now for the Nominees:
