Is the dress blue & black?
Or is the dress white & gold?
This is the great debate on social media during the last 24 hours.

My question. after partaking in a few color-centered debates myself, is what is this even about? Where did the dress come from and why is the world so split on the decision of whether or not it's black & gold or blue & black.

Oh, the dress is blue, by the way.

We've got a perfect explanation for why the world is on one accord with this indecision. 

Many people have been asked: "what color is this dress?" without giving a color coordination option. And each time the question was posed, either blue & black or white & gold followed.

So either half of the world is color blind or this is one hell-of-a joke.

Neither. explains the science behind it. This is what they had to say:
Light enters the eye through the lens—different wavelengths corresponding to different colors. The light hits the retina in the back of the eye where pigments fire up neural connections to the visual cortex, the part of the brain that processes those signals into an image. Critically, though, that first burst of light is made of whatever wavelengths are illuminating the world, reflecting off whatever you’re looking at. Without you having to worry about it, your brain figures out what color light is bouncing off the thing your eyes are looking at, and essentially subtracts that color from the “real” color of the object. “Our visual system is supposed to throw away information about the illuminant and extract information about the actual reflectance,” says Jay Neitz, a neuroscientist at the University of Washington. “But I’ve studied individual differences in color vision for 30 years, and this is one of the biggest individual differences I’ve ever seen.” (Neitz sees white-and-gold.)
That was A LOT of science stuff but it sounds so much better than, "if you see black & blue it's because you're angry and your anger is interfering with your ability to properly distinguish colors." 

I've even read a theory that suggested if you see black & blue that your soul was negative. 

This is what happens when your timeline quits their day jobs and become philosophers.

So I see a black and blue dress.
There were two different pictures floating around. They are BOTH black and blue. HOWEVER, one does seem to look a bit filtered or washed out. 

What color is the dress?

Black and blue
White and gold

New Music: Yung Nye - "Piece of Mind"

Everyone loves a lyrically talented hip-hop artist, someone with crazy flows, head-bobbing beats and memorable lyrics. Yung Nye, a hip-hop artist from Atlanta, gives us just that with his song "Piece of Mind" off his mixtape My Story. Yung Nye gives us his crazy flows over this even crazier beat produced by DJ Phreestyle. 
Yung Nye raps:
Excuse the excitement 
If you sue me for my flows then excuse my indictment 
I got dreams and aspirations of chilling on them islands 
No Gilligan, they said I'm getting out of here no discipline 

Yung Nye is not new to the rap game. Nye started rapping when he was 13 years old and has always had a love for music of all genres. Nye has a unique style that sets him apart from others and an authenticity that we don't get from every rapper. We can look forward to more of his work with his sophomore mixtape that will be released in the fall.
Nye says,"I feel that throughout so many obstacles in life, my passion for music comes from having a story to tell and being in a comfortable place where people can relate. Music is something very dear to me. I wouldn't engage in music if it didn't compensate for anything."
Check out Yung Nye's song "Piece of Mind," there is no way your not going to love it!
