panic on the streets of london
i debated whether or not i should even bother posting about this. i'm sure you've all seen it by now, and i'm sure you've all formulated your own opinion. what can i say about this that hasn't already been said, thought, or written? it reminds me of saved by the bell. an animated sequence was pulled from the olympics website, on the grounds that it triggers epileptic seizures. i think they should just pull the whole thing. it triggers my gag reflex.
i still really love lance wyman's entry for the '68 games in mexico city, including all the pictograms. but, geez. talk about triggering epileptic seizures! his website is fun to poke around in, too. so is this.
is my mind in the gutter or is this sorta phallic looking? or does it look like the olympic rings are giving me the finger? eff you too, georges huel. i must say, however, i'm really digging on all the product that came out of those games. especially those bitchin' fold up sport glasses.
