Pink Floyd - The Colours

A while ago I posted somewhere on the web a "theory" about PINK colour. The original post was about a pink lizard.

So I thought that in Pink Floyd's name we find the colour PINK.

Pink is a combination of red and white. The main colors are red, yellow and blue. By the combination of the other two colours, yellow and blue, we obtain green, so "Green Is The Colour". Corporal Clegg had a coloured medal:

Corporal Clegg had a medal too
In orange, red, and blue 
He found it in the zoo.

In Stay, "A yellow moon is growing cold" (from the album Obscured by Clouds).

Pink is the only colour that we will not find in the rainbow. The rainbow reminds us about their album: Dark Side Of The Moon. See you on the dark side of the moon!

Any Colour You Like is another great song!

Blue... Good Bye Blue Sky!

Us And Them, black and blue...

So: PINK is quite a colour, and PINK FLOYD quite a band!

Google 3D Warehouse

A while ago Google released another useful online tool named Building Maker. It is the software used in order to create 3D models of the building to be eventually displayed in Google Earth. There is also an offline version named Google SketchUp:

SketchUp is the finest (and most innovative) tool available for anyone designing anything from coffee pots to skyscrapers."
– McCall & Associates

So, I was curious about this new free tool, and I've started to use it. I've created at first a few simple models, which, to my surprise, were accepted! Being somehow pleased with the results, I've continued to improve my technique. So far I've uploaded 28 accepted models of buildings in Sapporo, Hokkaido Prefecture, Japan. Among these models, I consider the following building one of the most interesting:

This is a model which is still under "construction":

Google has some wonderful apps, only that some of them are very well "kept", and I do not know why...
