  • “lensed” is not a word. And that’s the most annoying music ever.

    • It is now. It is called a neologism and we love the music. If you don’t like the music, there is always the mute button, the same way I respond to people who piss me off. But rather than a virtual mute, I do an analogue one. But then again, that is your opinion and you know what they say about opinions…

    • Wow. How one could look at the incredible art Benjamin and Frederique worked so hard to create and choose to say something negative is such a desperate cry for attention, most likely based in overwhelming jealousy.  It is called creative license.  They can make up words, choose whatever music they like, and create whatever they want.  The creative world we live in has no boundaries or rules.  If you do not like what you see or hear, leave. The fact you commented shows that you needed to spread your insecurity like a shit stain all over a white carpet.  Why don’t you go and find something useful to do with your time, like say trying to create something that you feel is better on your own.  Oh that’s right.  You can’t.  – Eleni Lewandowski
