S Pink Premium Pointer Anyway, moving on ...: I'm man enough to like pink.
People used to remind me that "not everything's either black or white", but that doesn't mean they don't exist.
Because, where is all that grey coming from?

I'm man enough to like pink.

With that said, just what is it with me and this particular color?
I don't quite know it myself. Maybe I like it because part of my inner child is definitely a girl, but that's absolutely fine by me. :D
And come on, guys, each and every one of you likes that very special kind of pink. ;)

Aaaanyway, when I try to think back on when I started to like pink, I always end up remembering the first cellphone I really wanted:
Motorola V3
I first saw it in black in a TV commercial.
Until then, I had never given two shits about cellphones. I was happy with my grey Nokia 3210 (I only bought a blue 3310 later, because the 3210 broke ... well, I broke it. You have to kill those things, they don't die on their own. Back then I kept my Zippo and my phone in the same back pocket of my pants. One time, when I got drunk, I slipped, fell, went down on my ass and the lighter shattered the display - lesson learned. ^^) and probably would've stayed happy with it for years. But when I saw the Motorola V3 on TV, I couldn't help but to think, "Holy crap! That thing looks amazing." And it still does.
Shortly thereafter I discovered it in a flashy pink version, and it was instantly one of THE most disreable things I had ever seen.
Since then, "everything looks better in pink" seems to be a part of my source code. But I'm quite certain that I won't overdo it. I mean, I don't like stuff like this:
- it's already waaaay beyond too much, even for a location for a porn shooting. That's just fucking creepy as hell and not very comforting, neither for the eye nor mentally. It gives me the shivers.
So, no, it's not like I think that everything should be held in pink, but I LVE when something black or white has got pink accents in its coloring so that it shines out all the more.
Somehow it's a color that you're quite used to, yet in combination with something that usually has a different coloring and/or basically doesn't appear in pink at all (e.g. hair), it manages to look oddly uncommon, but in a good way. It's a real eyecatcher. And since it's such a bright, cute and "happy" color, I can't not like to look at it. ^^
Maybe it's just because I'm a guy that I find it somewhat strange to like pink so much.
But hey, it could be a lot worse, and I know I'm not alone. :D

Also, it goes rather nicely with some of my other fixations - pigs and everything dark.
I don't really like piggy-pink that much as a color, mostly because it's much too pale for my taste, BUT black + pink = THE color!

Gibson Les Paul Goddess Violet Burst

Do I need to say more about why I like purple/violet/lavender?
I definitely don't think so. I simply makes every other color its bitch within the blink of an eye.
You hear me, colors?!
Don't even blink. Blink, and you're dead.


Centaur ... awesome ... enough said. :D


  1. "You have to kill those things, they don't die on their own."
    I managed this too once. I was snowboarding, and had it in a pocket. Then I fell - on my face. And crushed the screen of my phone with my hip bone, lol. I was kinda surprised the screen shattered, but not my bone, it sure did hurt like hell though, haha

    Pink is cool, and it used to be one of the few colors I wore for a time. Now I kinda like purple and especially lavender more, but I do like the color a lot. Especially in spring and summer :3

    1. You were extremely lucky then. Sticks and stones may break your bones, but not an old Nokia phone - usually it works the other way around. XD
