Today I will ease us all into the weekend by talking about nonsense. It seems social medias really dig the lite version of everything and anything so lets' roll with some shallowness for today...
I woke up this morning to find out in astonishment that people were passionately debating over the color of a dress. The topic is still trending...#TheDress
Is it black and blue or white and gold? I am surprised the Dali Lama hasn't wrote some wise words regarding the matter.
All I can really see is that the dress in question is quite ugly, so regardless of its color I wouldn't be caught dead in it.
|The infamous picture.|
|The actual dress.|
Seriously though...Maybe we should ask Cyndi Lauper, you know she was the first one to sing "I see your true colors". Perhaps she was referring to a dispute over the nuance of one her 80's get-ups.
A dress hasn't been so talked about since the infamous blue number wore by Monica Lewinsky while "servicing" former president Bill Clinton. Not even the stolen dress wore by Lupita Nyong'o at the Oscars got as much attention. Literally. The $150,000 with 6,000 hand sewed pearls Calvin Klein masterpiece was stolen from her hotel room in West Hollywood. That craftsmanship is worthy of some relevance, not that unidentified color cheap ass dress.
Some even wrote an article titled:
The Science of Why No One Agrees on the Color of This Dress.
A whole dissertation about the way light enters the eye through the lens—different wavelengths corresponding to different colors blah, blah,blah...
I will tell you what is is:
photo apps filters.
A filter can make anything and anybody look brighter, younger, more interesting, more muscular, slimmer, and all together just altered.
We all do it but when do you think it becomes just too much?
As SKYY vodka once advertised :
I feel all this filtering has taken the sanity out of social media users (not that we ever had much of it to begin with...).
We do like our social media pictures to be as our favorite vodka:
FILTERED TO PERFECTION.
Ciao for now.
