Time has passed by surprisingly fast and it’s just about time for a new Crate of Curios. The theme ‘a shirt of violent green’ comes from the R.E.M. song that my brother sent me some time ago – it made an impression as you can see, and sparked the brain into gear.
- First of all the theme song itself – R.E.M. “What’s The Frequency, Kenneth?”
- Violent green apparently does exist as a particular colour and so do many other greens.
- “The Green Lady of Brooklyn”
- Noone did green like Tom Ford when he still designed for Gucci in 2004. Speaking of Gucci – “The House of Gucci” is absolutely worth watching.
- As Gucci and neon green lead us to the 90’s, ‘Dirty Lines‘ miniseries brings it all back.
- Why is the green room actually called the green room?
- An unbelievably steampunk computer powered by algae (unfortunately not in production yet).
- In northeastern India, some bridges are not built but grown.
- Book with only 50 words? No problem – want some ‘Green Eggs and Ham?’ (plus Dr. Seuss’ amazing illustrations)
- Nobody loved green like the postimpressionists and expressionists – from the left: Cezanne ‘In the woods’ (1885), Matisse ‘Montalban landscape’ (1918), Pissarro ‘Landscape at Pontoise’ (1882), Kirchner ‘Five women on the street’ (1913), Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso ‘Green landscape’ (1915)
So long and until the next Crate!
