GREEN MEANS GO on FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG!

GREEN has a great History and you can read all about it below. But to hit the BEST DANG GREEN VLOGS this side of anywhere… STEP ON IT HERE!

FROM WIKI… Green is the color between blue and yellow on the spectrum of visible light.

The modern English word green comes from the Middle English and Anglo-Saxon word grene, from the same Germanic root as the words “grass” and “grow”.

It is the color of living grass and leaves and as a result is the color most associated with springtime, growth and nature.

By far the largest contributor to green in nature is chlorophyll, the chemical by which plants photosynthesize and convert sunlight into chemical energy.

Many creatures have adapted to their green environments by taking on a green hue themselves as camouflage. Several minerals have a green color, including the emerald, which is colored green by its chromium content.

In surveys made in Europe and the United States, green is the color most commonly associated with nature, life, health, youth, spring, hope and envy.

In China its associations are very positive, as the symbol of fertility and happiness.

In the Middle Ages and Renaissance, when the color of clothing showed the owner’s social status, green was worn by merchants, bankers and the gentry, while red was the color of the nobility.

The Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci wears green, showing she is not from a noble family; the benches in the British House of Commons are green, while those in the House of Lords are red.

Green is also the traditional color of safety and permission; a green light means go ahead, a green card permits permanent residence in the United States.

It is also often associated with the culture of Gaelic Ireland, and is a color of the flag of Ireland. Because of its association with nature, it is the color of the environmental movement.

Political groups advocating environmental protection and social justice describe themselves as part of the Green movement, some naming themselves Green parties.

This has led to similar campaigns in advertising, as companies have sold green, or environmentally friendly, products. BOOM. There it is…

Wired.com, Toyota and Fireball head to Malibu…

There I was, minding my own business when WHAM! I get a call from the boys at Wired.com to join in for a cool event put on by Toyota. Specifically, the PRIUS. Now, the Prius being the #1 EcoMobile right now, this event focused on sustainability, greentech and… well, all things eco friendly. And using your Eco instead of your Ego is important in certain cases. Like this one.

Now, me being a designer of movie cars, 650hp tuners and a Green REDSTER, I guess I fit right in? … Um. …Or maybe it was just that I’m a little insane and they wanted me to freak people out? Or just maybe… there’d be a cool car or two there and I could reveal some inside Hollywood SECRETS? AH HA!!! Those sneaky Wired Rats!

So, up the canyon I went to be one of the Featured Speakers at this exclusive event in the hills of Malibu. And all this took place at a very unusual location. A house being built by Frank Lloyd Wright’s grandson, Eric Lloyd Wright. Still in the build stage, this architectural feat was really bitchin.’ And since Wired Magazine sponsored the event, you know it was going to be fun. Wait, didn’t I just call those guys Rats? Ok… I take it back. They are once again… cool.

So, I put on my green underwear and headed up. (Didn’t tell anyone that, though. Not sure they needed to know that?) But we talked environment issues, cool cars, soaked in the monstrous view and had a great time. Big thanks to Jon, Terrence and Maya for having me pitch in. Yes, the cool Wired guys. And no, Ghostbusters 3 isn’t really using the Prius… I just made that up. But they should…

LA Auto Show in GREENS…

Green is the color of nature. It symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility. Green has strong emotional correspondence with safety, like smacking your car into a tree. Another things that is green. Dark green is also commonly associated with money. Cool.

Green has great healing power. It is the most restful color for the human eye; it can improve vision. Green suggests stability and endurance. Sometimes green denotes lack of experience; for example, a ‘greenhorn’ is a novice or dood that is clueless. Green, as opposed to red, means safety; it is the color of free passage in road traffic. As in, HIT IT!

Use green to indicate safety when advertising drugs and medical products. Green is directly related to nature, so you can use it to promote ‘green’ products. Like, at the show, duh. As I said, darker green is commonly associated with money, the financial world, banking, and Wall Street. Oh, …and grapes.
