Today Scoutmob published the fun lil' post "The Official Atlantone Colors of 2012" about the colors that will define Atlanta in the coming year. It's a twist on the declaration by the color czars at Pantone that Tangerine Tango is "THE" "IT" color of 2012. Other experts agree.
The Scoutmob list was cute. It made us laugh! Really, we emailed it to each other and chuckled. But it made us think more about 2011 than 2012. So we decided to do a list, too.
Newt "White Thunder" Gingrich
Because look at that hair. And also, presidential stuff.
Chicken N Beer Brown
Did you hear? Ludacris got the go ahead from Mr. Mayor to open up his Chicken N Beer in the airport. Chicken N Beer Brown is also the color of the allegedly muddied, dirty airport vendor dealings.
Arts Funding Pot o' Gold
Because as budget proposals are being drafted and submitted in the coming weeks and voted on later this spring, YOU KNOW the arts will be handsomely rewarded.
Precious, Rare Lanier Water Blue
For when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers decides in July that Georgia is allowed to take only three (3) 12 oz. glasses of water per day from Lake Lanier, which for decades has been the metro region's primary source of drinking water and the subject of a 20-year water war between the Peach State, Alabama, and Florida.
Industrial Beltline Grey Surrounded by Progressive Green™©
For the new Beltline bike path that'll likely open sometime in April between Piedmont Park and Irwin Street.
Dapper Dark Indigo
Because per Scott Henry's bidding, Atlanta gents will finally start dressing for the occasion when they step out for a night on the town. And because a refined gentleman such as Mr. Henry deserves his own colour.
Mayan Apoca-lips Red
December 21, 2012 - my parents' 43rd wedding anniversary and also the for sure end of the world. This shade is appropriate for either celebration.
