Samhain, bringer of Dome

Ok, now that I’ve gotten the worst subhead ever out of the way, here’s something fun: The Milennium Dome, scourge of the London skyline, is finally being given away free to developers.

For the record, the Dome was not soley a provider of looming shadows and embarassment. There was Peter Gabriel’s OVO album, which you still can’t really buy in the U.S., commissioned especially for the Dome’s feature exhibit. A more or less fantastic Blackadder reunion was filmed for the main screen. And James Bond fell off it.

But … Jesus, I mean … look at the thing! Long after humanity trudges across the radioactive rubble of World War III, he will shake his head at the misconceived ideas that went into making the Dome.
