[문화] 트렌드로서의 초록색 (초록색지붕집의 앤) by 다음엇지

흥미로운 기사가 있어서 갈무리합니다. 최근에 폴란드의 앤 100주년 사이트를 살펴보고 있는데요. 서명이 <초록 언덕(hillside)의 앤(Ania z Zielonego Wzgórza)> 이더군요. 물론 폴란드어의 뉘앙스를 모르기 때문에 언덕위의 집.. 이라는 의미가 있을 것 같은 짐작은 갑니다만.. 저 푸른 초원 위에 구름같은 집을 짓고의 이미지는 전세계 누구나 공유하는 것 같은 느낌이 듭니다. 그냥 연예지 가십란에나 날 정도의 기사이지만 구지 문학 작품에 [Anne of Green Gables] 가 언급된 것이 독특해서요.

기사는 대중 문화와 역사, 문학등에 나타난 '초록색'에 대한 헌사들을 모아 놓고 있습니다. 대부분 Green 이란 이름이 들어간 사람들이나 그룹, 드라마 영화들에 대한 이야기이구요. 비버리힐즈 아이들은 역시 기억 속에 뚜렷이 남아 있습니다만 미국 대중 드라마에 대한 관심은 별로 가지 않네요.

It's easy being green
A look at how this versatile hue colored pop culture

Green has become such a trendy term these days, it’s hard to tell what people mean when they say the word. Environmental and artistic connotations have skewed what people think of when green comes up in conversation. But when St. Patrick’s Day rolls around, it’s easy to know what green means, and it’s not about hybrid cars and eco-friendly light bulbs.

Here’s a salute to green’s place in pop culture, history, literature and beyond.

With a competitive season behind them, the Green Bay Packers are still making news these days _ this time for being blue. For all the cheeseheads out there, it was a sad day when long-time quarterback Brett Favre announced his retirement. Some green beer could ease the pain.

Creepiness involving green is also found on the silver screen. With the cannibalistic conspiracy movie “Soylent Green” in 1973, audiences were treated to a not-so-savory take on the color.

Rising to popularity with the success of “Beverly Hills 90210,” audiences grew to love David Silver, played by Brian Austin Green. Green can be seen today as part of the cast of “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.”

The classic TV comedy “Green Acres” is best remembered for its fun theme song and its fish out of water subjects. The green really did pop off the screen, depicting the farm and its fields. And of course, Zsa Zsa Gabor’s emeralds.

Both a book and feature film, Stephen King’s “The Green Mile” focused on death row in a prison and the inmates that were incarcerated there. The green mile refers to the color on the hallway walls that lead to the execution chamber.

A classic book series featuring a heroine named Anne in “Anne of Green Gables.”

A key player in Hollywood, Seth Green has branched out beyond movies and TV series _ Scott Evil in the Austin Powers films, Oz the werewolf in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and Chris Griffin on “Family Guy,” to name a few _ to include productions of his own such as “Robot Chicken” on the Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim block, in which he produces, writes and directs.

On a lamer Hollywood note, there’s always the uncomfortably weird Tom Green. But since some of his scenes in movies and sketches from his show "The Tom Green Show" will make you a little green around the gills, we’ll just throw his name out there.

Green is the name of the elite military group, the Green Berets. The berets are the U.S. Army’s team of special forces.

Dr. Seuss’ classic children’s book “Green Eggs and Ham” is a favorite among the kiddie and adult sets alike. So get out your food coloring and get to work.

Punk/pop rockers Green Day started their rise to fame in the ‘90s and are still an integral part of the music scene today. With their anti-Bush themed songs, we imagine they’re fully on the environmental bandwagon, but also fun enough to have a green beer with.

If you’re a star or a guest on a TV show, the first place you’re shown is the green room. This is where you can kick back and relax and enjoy some catered food.

Since absinthe is making a comeback, we have to mention it. Also known as the "green fairy," the liquor was banned in the U.S., but has recently been showing up in bars across the nation. And in Paris Hilton’s hand.

The Grand Strand, of course, has more than its share of greens for the golf enthusiast. There are plenty of spots to practice and putting and driving the greens.

No green list would be complete without mentioning our very own Brookgreen Gardens. With green in its name, as well as its main attraction, this spot is ideal for a little celebrating.
