oh, for once i just stowed it. short version, i was staring
at my obnoxiously [visually] loud watch, and i'm getting
lost in the balance of color of the various splotches, and
just realizing: i just wear this for myself. what other
people think is an afterthought. and it's because lots of
well-balanced color just makes me happy; cheers me up for
some reason.

then i spent a few years writing video editing software, so
i'm fascinated by color on a technical level, too

so i thought i'd just make a thread about color. my favorite
color is probably jungle green. bright (so nudge up RGB
across the board) but with definite heavy blue value mixing
in with the dominating green

i see,
you know what pastels really got me was two recent animes,
BNA and The Great Pretender. loved those palettes...

i'm actually not a fan of pastels, per se. i prefer, like,
RGB on black. saturation. but it someone uses pastels
beautifully, well, not what i would do, but sure, yes.
haven't seen either of those

most people think of colorblind as... total monochrome. this
is actually rare. most common -- though it's still
statistically rare -- is red/green color blindness. like,
imagine seeing in shades of blue and grey and nothing else.

what is particularly fascinating to me is that robert del
naja, 3D, of massive attack, is red/green color-blind, and
used to be a graffiti artist (or still is, on the off-chance
he's banksy, but given banksy's colors... yeah, kudos if it
is for the colors) and in interviews he said, "people would
be all, oh, those colors are wild, how did you come up with
that? and meanwhile i have to label the spraypaint cans so i
know what colors they are"

that, i dunno, i can actually see that guy... very carefully
collating everyone's feedback, and carefully determining
what colors work where despite not being able to see them
himself. outsider 9000

lord help me i've left it alone but now i'm kind of
squinting at banksy art and, hmm. hmm, hm, hmm. that
actually... yeah, like, the fire is red, the dumpster is
yellow, there's a lot of monochrone throughout... that yeah,
actually, parts of this are colored but an overall...
monochrome tone. almost a vague sense of being
particularly irritated... "goddamn it i wish i could
see yellow" and we have some wistful bananas he wishes he
could see

but i've no idea what i'm talking about, him being banksy is
almost too easy

rumor has it...
in an interview banksy spoke of a blood test puzzling his
family doctor as he was not officially adopted but clearly
not his parents offspring. some theories hence emerged of
him having royal blood as its color was, yes, blue!
but maybe their doctor was color blind aswell.

im liking your theory tho,
they have a banksy exhibit in my home town right now.
i would go, but the ticket is kinda pricey actually.
rather buy a bottle of decent tequila and watch banksy
online.

fun fact, i did a stencil this summer near the police
station,
no, not a pig, but it was pretty exiting!

i was trying to google that to see if it was an actual
story, instead of a coded reference, a joke i don't get,
something, and, well, search results are so terrible now,
they've started to get good again ~ LAZY_TITLE

anyways, it's a tangent, but... someone noticed banksy
appearances correlated with massive attack tours, but...
it's not unheard of for people to follow tours around, you
know? and given 3D was (is?) into that, perhaps there was a
little help but otherwise nothing to do with it

but really... if we sweep aside squinting at the colors as a
litmus test, 3D has always been incredibly political. still
is. it does feel like the same... biting, clever, urgent...
but again, could just be a sort of kindred spirit thing.
though i also think, the timing, cops busted into poor guy's
house claiming he had kiddie porn (he didn't) then they
busted him for drugs. later he sued, it was all thrown out
because it was horseshit, and likely in revenge for
him being politically outspoken. it's actually been
completely scrubbed from wikipedia; you really have to dig
for it. right to be forgotten and all. it would just make
sense if he was racking his brain for a way to keep going,
but not get so much shit, and...

if i ever establish proof, i'll do the right thing and never
post it.

i did appreciate one thing out of that nonsense drug bust --
i was deeply into 100th window at the time; big influence on
me... and i'm wondering: what drugs does this guy do? and
here's a detailed list. mostly psychedelics. i think the
coke was for guests

COLOR

old-school cataract surgery, they'd remove the filter, and
you could then see UV light. monet had this surgery towards
the end of his life, and... i think the water lilly
paintings are, honestly, limp boring crap compared to his
river boat era... but seeing how his lillies changed after
his cataract surgery is fascinating

that, mind you, you can't truly see it... comes out as
blasts of white... but monet was so deeply into analyzing
color... yeah.

3D, get out of my thread -- he did that send-up of water
lillies with a traffic cone floating in it

...and, like, he's colorblind, and one could see him saying
"you could put a traffic cone in that and i'd not see it"
and then the lightbulb goes off.

the woman who can see 100 million colo(u)rs

tetrachromats. that i'm actually still not entirely clear i
have it correct, here, but, yes, normal color vision all
R-G-B and that's trichromatic vision. birds and fish and
lizards are tetrachromats, meaning R-G-B-? and so are some
humans with genetic edge-cases; mostly women. the men on
these genetic lines tend to crap out and be at least
red/green colorblind.

but it's the ? that irritates me. birds can see into the
ultraviolet, but i don't think human tetrachromats can.
instead, i think it's essentially like they've switched from
recording 16-bit to recording 24-bit and they can't see
colors we cannot, they just have immensely more granularity
about color due to more bits per pixel.

so i think i have it right, but i'm still looking around
trying to find a proper answer

The protein encoded is a G-protein coupled receptor with
embedded 11-cis-retinal, whose light excitation causes a
cis-trans conformational change that begins the process of
chemical signalling to the brain


cis-retinal. just wait until florida and texas hear about
this one
