And Grey.

You are black and white.

Our colour monitor broke down a few months ago, and being that we live in mud-hut-landia, we haven't been able to get a fix or replace. Fortunately, we had a few black and white ones that we kept in storage, so we pulled one out and attached it.

It helps to keep the right perspective on the computer. When I look around me, the world is so beautiful and vibrant and alive. The screen is the only icy and dead thing in the room. It helps to break any developing attachments to the consensual hallucination of cyberworld, while still allowing necessities ...and maybe a few fringes.

Still, entertainment loses a lot of its colour when it is in ...black and white. Right now any form of computerized fun is rather pale and drained compared to--even walking around the house.

Well, the music's still in the full spectrum.

Watch Him go and break my headphones.

It is annoying, isin't it? In practically every Family home around the world, there always seems to bea surplus of monitors, keyboards, mouses, cords. All that. That is, except when we need them.

It always happens. Everyones always seems to get rid of everything a yesterday before the other one breaks. And then you miss it.

Imagine watching the movie Pleasantvile on there. Okay, it starts black and white. Then just keeps on going. The whole movie.

Freedom from grey!

Aack. The demo! Delete it!!!!!

Ha. It might not be strictly emo, but after research it seems that was the feel we were going for. Any tips on making it feel real?

Bring on the live examples! Send me an essay, to my email, along with which songs (scientific research material) to refer to, for me to pray about... Pleeeease?
