brown sugar

yummy brown goodness! everlasting thanks to lettuce from bringing this brown paradise for morning nibbles at avenue c!!

from richard box 'colour and design for embroidery' :
Brown is the color of the earth and can appear rich, fertile and comforting. Conversely can be seen as color of dirt, with all colors it depends on how it is juxtaposed. When we look about our environment - browns - dark, dull reds, yellows, oranges and greens can be seen in abundance - they are foils to all the brighter, purer clors. Bright colors may sit on thrownes but browns are the colors behind them.

for something trippy check out this vid of bob covering the rolling stones' brown sugar.

have a great weekend!

Brown. I once read that brown is the color of honesty of the workingman, the woodsman. Brownies (the elves not the choco-treats had some positive brown symbolism but i can't remember)

But chocolate brownies are good too.

I like Brown, but as Frank Zappa once said: "Brown shoes don't make it." I guess brown will never be the new black, fashion wise.

Marmite; a taste not quite acquired 'round here . . . but you enjoy!

Lee's River said...

boy, on some of the photos, Bob and friends look like they tested out the brown sugar backstage :-)

I refuse to get into the marmite debate. Line me up with tut-tut on this one.

Is brown going to be the color for next week's prompt, or is that still a TBA?

mouse (aka kimy) said...

as the adverts say marmite: you either love it or hate it!

I do love it, but many friends hate it. I might not understand it, but I love them anyway.

oh zappa ....but I love brown shoes!

lee - think the theme will be a thing and not a color for next week. just waiting for word from ched on which thing will be the theme for theme thursday ....the mouse is celebrating color all month, but I don't expect color will be necessarily the theme....but of course color does infuse all that surrounds us.

I like the video. at 1:03 I look exactly like Heath Ledger did in "Im Not There" -- He was the best.

Dennis added to his sidebar 'wavers' he's so excited.

Sorry, I hate Marmite too :P I ate enough of it growing up to be a proper judge. The colours are soothing though and it's a great picture.
Just... yuck! from my side of the screen ;)

Okay, not the most PC sentiment in the RS's lyrics, but I love the sentiment on the cup on the right.

PS For much of my life, brown was my favorite color, and I usually got the response "That's not a color; that's dirt."

dennis - great wave captures!

te - I'll make sure there will be marmalade for your toast should you drop by for breakfast

junk - yes the lyrics are totally anti pc...but how could I resistthe find of dylan singing brown sugar.

in terms of clothing in fall and winter I've very fond of wearing brown clothing...and contrary to zappa's fashion advice I am very fond of brown shoes.
