Hold that Tiger!

In a follow-up to recent TIGER/ORANGE events...The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, an opposition political faction in Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon) has been blamed for a roadside bomb attack overnight which took the life of Nation Building Minister D.M. Dassanayake. The group has been fighting for an Independent State since 1983, and the majority of violence in the country since then has been attributed to "The Tigers".

Completely unrelated...Famed author Arthur C. Clarke has lived in Sri Lanka since the 1950's. In an interview from late last year, he announced that he was suffering from polio, was wheelchair bound, and would never again leave the country.

For more on Mr. Clarke see Steve Willner's newest video:

Keeping in line with TIGER attacks, Louisiana State University's Tigers claimed rights to being the top team in college football last night by defeating the Buckeyes of The Ohio State University.

Just to add a few more bits - Tigger from Winnie the Pooh.
I lived in Northern Ireland from 3 to 6 , and lived in Protestant territory. Come July 12th everything was orange due to it being a day of celebration for the supporters of William of Oranje.
There's a lot of Orange in Fashion , and has been for the past couple of years. I know that Chemical Companies have to decide on the colours about 4 years in advance of them being spontaneously accosted by Fashion designers who tell us that Orange is in this year because etc.....
First theres the colour production, turned into dyes and paints, then the yarn is dyed before being sold to fabric makers who make the lengths that finally go to the clothes makers and 'designers'. The paints go to the paint industry for the home and office colours [ offices first] + the car industry.
U can't obviously buy an orange jersey without it fitting with the new office , or the car.
After enough has been sold the colours become all the edgings and buttons, accessories etc in clothes and stuff. They generally keep selling it until they've offloaded it all. Apparently for 2 or 3 years they couldn't shift brown quickly, as it was unpopular, but they kept in fashion for 2 or 3 years. I only have someone else's word for that , so might be a 'story'
orange is the Stomach Chakra - Consume more!!!
Cheers for comments

Hello Todd - Nice post and glad to see your continuation into the realm of Orange.. this rabbit hole is big and deep..the kind I like :)

Mr.Moon .. as to your post your spot on and its not just a story.. I have had conversations with BASF's color stylist Jon Hall..I have been to their lab and have talked to him in person.. he told me that Yellow(shades of)are going to continue to become more prevalent as it is a off shade of Orange..they never could get Brown(Rootbeer)to fly well. All colors are designed 4 years in advance is very true. Orange and Yellow are calming safe colors...part of the social engineering agenda..keeps the sheep from getting too nervous :)

Thanks again for your efforts Todd and wish you a great day!

BEE Well!

I live in Republican West Belfast... it was worse in some ways than when I was in a warzone back in '91.

Strangely enough last night I dreamed of watching the movie 'Paper Tiger' with David Niven (I hold you and AFM responsible for this).

This tiger thing is interesting. I posted some tiger syncs in Eye on the Tiger right after Xmas. Maybe helpful.

Personally, I'm hoping all the tigers turn into butter.

David Niven is beginning to gnaw, tickle and oscillate, though he seems rather a vast concept to entertain , not that small things are not clustering around that bit of the universe.
Have posted something that includes the Tamil Tiger - Orange- Tod the Fox connexion.

Talking about Sweet Tooth , Tod, the main temple in Kandy is called the Temple of the Tooth. St. Range , patron saint of high wierdness.

Michael: Oddly, I didn't see that post when I got back from the Holidays...I went back to read your newest stuff??? Oh well, Sorry I didn't mean to leave you out.

David/AFM: What are we gonna do about this Niven madness? "Paper Tigers" seems so right doesn't it? With America sitting around the globe with it's balls hanging out...

David said...

Niven - the US-UK military liasion during WWII, Bond written for him, his role in the real life prison camp for spies that inspired The Prisoner, his Masonic career - all the established fact before we even begin to engage with the poetic truth. Bring on the empty horses indeed.

FilmNoir23 said...

This is funny because I have had separate convos with both David & AFM about David Niven before...

any thoughts?
