A Little Slice of Logo Heaven
Ah, the old days of EPCOT Center. When the future was cool, when sleek and shiny was in, when optimism reigned supreme.
Remember that? I spent many days (I can admit this now, in my 30s, but denied it vehemently in my youth) drawing logos from EPCOT Center on my book covers and notebooks, tracing pictures of them on my Disney light-table (did anyone else have one of those?!), waiting impatiently for the day that EPCOT Center would open. Living in California, there was no way I was going to be able to actually visit it back then, but just the thought that it was possible got my mind racing. (Thankfully, I actually did get to visit in June 1983, thanks to a family vacation probably designed to relieve everyone from having to listen to my EPCOT Center "reports" any longer.)
Now, an EPCOT Central blog reader sends me this link to some fantastic, fabulous, beyond wonderful t-shirt creations on Zazzle.com. The reader nets $1 from each shirt sold, which s/he promises to donate to charity. Meanwhile, I'm in EPCOT nerd heaven with these shirts! Oh ... and these, too -- more awesome EPCOT shirts!
