Utopia Ubiquita: prisms & Rainbows

If anyone remembers the Vulnicura Ubiquita thread, I thought it would be cool to have a Utopia one too! If you've been seeing Utopia everywhere, feel free to share it :mrgreen:

I for one was immediately reminded of these two songs when hearing about prisms:

WTF IS UBIQUITA
Well ubiquitous means "present, appearing, or found everywhere" idk why ubquita, you'll have to ask Ultramarine, but I guess it's supposed to end in a like Vulnicura (and now Utopia)

:lol: :lol: it's based on my fallacious assumption that "ubiquitous" is a Latin-derived word, which led me to think that there is a latin word "ubiquitus," the feminine form of which would be "ubiquita." that's totally wrong, however, so you're welcome to dispense with "ubiquita", though for some reason it stuck, haha. i guess it made sense in the context of an album/era with a made-up latin-sounding name like vulnicura?

anyways, onwards to utopia!

I think it should be Utopia Ubīque Praesēns in Latin, but I like your bastardized Ubiquita more. :)

probably "utopia moodboard" would make more sense, but i like how ubiquita sounds so i'm good with it! :lol:

and i'm sorry but my millennial ass only thinks about y2k aesthetics ever since the gate artwork is out, so back to the :album2: days?

EDIT: the army of me cover literally showed up on google images while searching for these so my point is stronger than ever

(I recently learned that Blank Banshee actually sampled a Björk song somewhere, but I'm not sure which one though :shifty: )
