I was being facetious. But that really is stupid. Not least because when you paint you don’t paint a background and then try to paint over it; that wouldn’t work at all.

Matt

nope,
Blue Skying.
A bunch of listners called in and said “that when start with a blank cavas you first start with a blue sky, then you add everything else. So to “blue sky” an idea is to take the idea back to the very begining and work it up from scratch.”

It just makes me want to slap someone.

Sarah

Maybe they meant “Vanilla Skying” – where you spend two hours on something you think is meaningful only to find it was all completely pointless.

It’d be more accurate, anyway.

Matt

As per O & A yesterday:
Have you ever heard of “Blue Skying” something?
Apparently that’s taking an idea from the ground up but I’d be damned to figure it out.
