Sa mga kulay sa color chart, pink ang hindi ko masyadong gusto. Nagkakaroon lang ako ng kulay rosas na damit kung ito'y ireregalo sa akin. Sa kalikasan ko lang nagugustuhan ang pink---sa mga bulaklak at halaman, prutas, ibon at kulay ng langit. Pero ako'y nabighani sa nag-aagaw na kulay rosas, lila at ginto sa dingding ng gusaling ito sa Seattle. Ito ang Experience Music Project and Science Fiction Museum na dinesenyo ni Frank O. Gehry.

"In 1969 a screaming, reverberating rendition of the Star Spangled Banner by Jimi Hendrix seemed to herald an end to innocence. His resonant lyric "Are you experienced?" is now recalled in the name of software billionaire Paul G. Allen's Experience Music Project. Hendrix would have appreciated the design approach to Seattle's new museum of pop music.
"Architect Frank O. Gehry has made a career out of bending vertical and horizontal lines of building construction into something defiant and sometimes poetic. With Seattle's EMP, opened just over a week before the Fourth of July, he has met his perfect client in Allen and his metaphorical match in rock-'n'-roll. The resulting architecture is a unique performance and a new landmark on the edge of the Seattle Center." Source: GreatBuildings Page

For Thursday Two Questions - you are invited to answer and join:
1) What kind of music moves you?
- Music moves me in ways I seldom realize. It can be an opera, jazz, classic rock, blues. I remember listening to Andrea Boccelli's Romanza cd for the first time...I didn't understand a word but I had goosebumps and almost cried in front of a sales clerk. Pink Floyd takes me to another place. Flamenco music, Carlos Santana and Eric Clapton bring out the rhythm in me. Otis Redding, John Lee Hooker, Nora Jones for my moody soul.
2) How does color affect your mood?
- More often than not, I am unaware that a certain color affects my mood. But in many ways, I use colors to show my feelings. I wear bright red lipstick when I'm feeling crappy. I prefer black when I don't want to get noticed. Red and orange boost my confidence, yellow when I need a favor.:p I love waking up to clear blue skies, green growing things make me happy. Grey mornings get me down, i'm a bit intimidated and curious at anything purple. Sunsets, full moons and fireworks make me emotional---I think it has something to do with colors, too.
