keeping in mind that a certain blogging website permits only solid colors to be associated with blogs, & not patterns, gradients, or
textures: within that limited room to work with, faded colors are as skeuomorphic as it gets. they gesture towards being un-digital
by suggesting that the color might have been worn down from a prior state, & maybe on close examination one would find
un-digital irregularities that are smoothed out at a distance. it's contrary to a bold tone which announces that it
requires a constant supply of power to charge the pixels to push out such a strong wavelength... it is a lie,
though. each pixel is charged & dedicated to producing the particular faded tone & no others,
the surface is as smooth & sleek as #ff0000, #00ff00, #0000ff
