"pigment of your imagination" is the second malaprop I've seen today. Betsy did a post on them in her "My Five Men" blog.

Cute!

Just delightful combination of word and title.

Pigment of your imagination? Ha. Nice one. The pic is so striking too. Faces flattened on to a single plane.

"When you dream in color...it's a pigment of your imagination."

This one is definitely playing with my head, but in a fruitful sense. Well, I think of the fleeting nature of dreams and the difficulty one has in recalling specific or non-specific images, and I can't say that color has ever been held in focus. Hmmm.

A play on words and we dream colors- and the hoedown becomes 3-D

Coffee Messiah said...

sam: It's a play on a pun.

layers: Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

The video is amazing; thanks for sharing it. I really have no concept of how you would make a video like this, so I prefer to think of it as magic. The collage and its title are great! I say things like this all the time (in fact, I've said "pigment of your imagination" many times), but no one seems to enjoy as much as I do. My students look at me like I'm crazy; my husband ignores me or rolls his eyes... geez!

When I dream, Coffee, quite often I fly. I just spread my arms and, from a high place, I start gliding.

It is an amazing experience and probably relates to my subconscious wish to escape from this earth and the human condition.

Dreams keep us sane sometimes!

tony: Thanks for stopping by.

subT: Yikes, plaid dreams, scary....

sharmon: It's imagine there's at least one student in your class that understands.....Thanks for stopping by.

dg: You'll never know how much I understand what you've mentioned.
Hope you are well.
Cheers!

Outside The Lines said...

"pigment of your imagination"

Very witty!

Coffee Messiah said...

outside: Yes, it's all around us, if we keep looking. Thanks for stopping by.

john: Hey, Thanks for stopping by.

layers said...

a color theme-- what a coincidence because I just did a blog post on the lack of color.. love the play on words.

Anil P said...

Haha. 'Pigment' surely :-)

Imagine how wonderful it would be to actually have history come alive in that fashion when reading a book.

Coffee Messiah said...

layers: Thanks once again for stopping by.

anil p: They do, in your imagination!

Hi Sir: for some reason, I'm back today and I'm reviewing this and thinking of the cutouts I saw yesterday on a non-orchestral post and they were even more amazing. These paper cut out pop ups seem to be the hot thing right now.
