Color Me "Authentic"
how much more spiritual can it get?
how much more surreal?
The following polychromatic advice is from The Pantone Guide to Communicating with Color, which is useful in many ways, though the Pantone codes don't seem to quite match in Photoshop's various custom Pantone color pickers. Ah well, it's only technology. The quotes below, however, match exactly. As the book is primarily used in product marketing and corporate communications, I'm going to assume that these require no further comment from me. If you're going, "Yeah? I don't see the problem..." you should leave this page immediately and never return.

spiritual

"Composed primarily of enigmatic purples, meditative blues, dusky mauves, ghostly grays and wispy whites, this is the thought-provoking mystical palette that reaches beyond the heavens into other spheres, exploring unknown realms beyond the physical, creating a sense of the surreal." [p. 76]

buzzwords

"Keep your ears tuned to the newest buzzwords. For example, what does 'authentic' say to you? Does it say real, without artifice, natural, genuine? Could it also mean traditional and/or classic mood? Are spiritualism and a fascination for the supernatural a continuing interest that captures the public attention? If this is so, match the descriptive buzzword to one of the closest moods depicted in this book and that will give you a sense of where the color direction is going as well as the recommended combinations to get you there." [p. 129]

Permanent link to Red Panda for Wednesday, December 10, 2003. Wednesday, December 10, 2003

light fuse and run Lyndon Johnson interviews Stavros the Wonderchicken on Harold Bloom's Kabbalah, Emerson's Trance & Dentalism, and Richard Rorty's suck-job blurb of Dennett's latest take on free-will-in-silicon-why-not? Permanent link to some damn thing.

Shelley Powers shoots Kirlian auras in Kremlin as disembodied spirit of Anton Chekov plays baleful dirge on his glass trombone in memory of Ornette Coleman and Trane. Standards bodies evolve into Emperor Penguins worldwide due to sudden slippage in punctuated equilibrium. Stephen Jay Gould appears in drag as the Blessed Virgin in Red Square. Passenger pigeons make dramatic comeback, following in the footsteps of the Madagascar Coeloencanth. Permanent link to some other damn thing.

Jeneane Sessum tapped by Harold Dean Stanton as vice presidential running mate in a bid to get out the Southern trailer trash repo vote. Sessum vows to liquidate accounts payable departments across the entire high-tech sector using latest DOD hardware and C3I search-and-destroy capabilities. While most analysts agree that a mouthy woman with a black kid will no doubt win sympathy among bleeding heart liberals and assorted cockeyed Jesus freaks, some voiced concerns about Sessum's history of flying off the handle without notice and inflicting severe bodily harm on innocent bystanders during overwrought voter registration drives. More on this as it develops... Permanent link to yet another damn thing.

Until a minute ago, I had no photos. I still have no photos to speak of. I don't even have a camera. But all these people were linking to "my photos." It was embarassing. It's still embarassing. But I'm used to that.
