New Studio Name Contest!!

posted by JV | September 12 2010

I asked, you delivered. These names are so interesting to me, I had to post them. We owe it to history.

The back story: I'm trying to open a new studio early next year, so I asked for suggestions related to my current studio, Tiny Telephone.

This is the best list since our "2008 name the Vanderslice band" contest.
