I'm not a huge fan of a lot of Daniel Stern's stuff, but here's a write up explaining it better:

I read the same article. I know I see best in fog or blizzards with yellow, and blue lights are very bad for me. I don't do well with any light over about 5500k. Maybe it's because I grew up in an era before these high color-temp lights and my eyes were "trained" that way, I dunno...

The only problem with that is that they're probably somewhat permanent. The film just peels right off if you change your mind. Ive never heard of using window paint but that sounds pretty cool! Do you have pics?
