I loved those costumes!

When I was a kid I wanted to visit Epcot so badly. Never got there, it just seemed like another planet to a kid growing up in Ireland.

before rainbow imagery gave conservatives conniptions...

Who builds geodesic domes these days? The geodesic dome's inventor, Buckminster Fuller, still has a cult following. But that doesn't make much sense because his inventions haven't really worked well.

Mark Plus: have you seen the Eden project in England?

October 21, 2007 | Unregistered Commenter73man

73 man asks,

have you seen the Eden project in England?

No. Judging from the http://www.edenproject.com/" REL="nofollow">website, it reminds me of the http://www.mobot.org/hort/gardens/CLhistarchit.shtml" REL="nofollow">Climatron (a paleo-future neologism, if I've ever see one!) in St. Louis, which I have seen.

In other contexts, geodesic domes just look increasingly dated.

BTW, I live about ten miles from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arcosanti" REL="nofollow">Arcosanti, another moribund architectural experiment from the paleo-future era.

For someone into radical rethinking & 'arcology', Arcosanti's founder has an astoundingly mediocre apartment.
Plastic lawn chairs?

And the bell foundry. How very 60s to believe you can support a community by making bells which, no doubt, were symbolic of man's need to wake up.

I knew it! I know where the Teletubbies creator got the idea of putting creepiness on children show.
