Internet Time Waster of the Day: Idee Multicolr


mojo-photo-multicolr2.jpgVia the also-pretty-addictive Apartment Therapy, it’s a crazy little internet widget that allows you to select a set of colors (up to ten) and then happily goes off and searches Flickr’s “Interesting Photos” pool for pictures that prominently feature your selected hue or hues. First, pick orange, and watch the pumpkins, oranges, and fireworks line up. Then click on blue, and suddenly there are orange-brick buildings against blue skies, and spray-tanned babes in front of turquoise oceans. What’s it good for? Well, I suppose you could click on your living room’s color scheme and then print out a couple photographs for a do-it-yourself wall hanging, or something, but mostly it’s just hypnotic, grid after grid of scenes whose hilariously diverse subjects are united by tint. Ooh, orange, black and pink gets you lots of nice sunsets. There goes my whole afternoon. Have your secretary hold your calls and click here.
