Color is a large, broad topic, yet color is a human perspective.
We see because cones on the eye’s retina detects a specified range of colors in light, transforms the light messages into nerve impulses to be sent to the brain for interpretation and translation into sight. If it wasn’t for the cones on the retina we wouldn’t see the range of colors that we do … but we could still see without cones.
Colors are a range in the visible light spectrum that correspond to some guy named Roy G Biv. We categorize colors into different levels as primary, secondary, and intermediate. involve tints, shades, and hues with neutrals, pastels, warm/cool, and complementary/contrast … yet designers and artists organize usable colors into a palate.
While a color space organizes colors, a color model serves as a mathematical interpretation … yet 216 colors have been identified as safe for web pages – each with an identify code – each with its own mixture of RGB (red, green, blue), HSL (hue, saturation, lightness and HSB (hue, saturation, brightness).
Cultures adapt color for various symbolisms. The same color can mean excitement, purity, danger, success, and more … yet colors are associated with personality, psychology, meditation, philosophy, and marketing.
No matter the perception, scheme, physics, theory, psychology, or culture, this experience is Colors: The Musical.
Act 9: White
White – signifying purity, innocence, a new beginning, serenity, wholeness, perfection, and cleanliness
White – a common color in nature – as in ice, clouds, snow, milk, chalk, limestone, doves, white swans, the arctic fox, beluga whale, a snow leopard, light, and white pearls
White – prisms transform white light so we can see the color spectrum that comprises white light
White – depending on the culture, the color for baptism, first communion, Easter, weddings, funerals, reincarnation, Hajj, Yom Kippur, and Niwa
White – used in idioms and expressions as white knight, white noise, whitewash, white collar, white lie, white paper, white as a ghost, raise the white flag, white elephant, and many more
White – fitting for the last act of Colors: The Musical – has equal amounts and equal intensities of other colors
Songs must have White in the title
- No forms of white (as whitish, whiter, whitest, etc)
- No shades of white (as cream, ivory, eggshell, etc)
- No compound words as (whitewater, whitecaps, whitewash, etc)
- No duplicates songs regardless of artists
To prevent browsers crashing from loading too many videos, please 1) include the song title and artist in your text, and 2) paste the URL as part of your last line (not a new line). The latter will provide a link, thus not embed the actual video … but I don’t mind unembedding, so apologies are not necessary.
Closing Night is always a sad night – and Colors: The Musical has been a success. But the final act also means a new theme is near. Because white symbolizes a new beginning, we’ve invited a rocker with the appropriate song title to start tonight act. Let’s stand up and start clapping to welcome Billy Idol with White Wedding.
