Yesterday's Plastics Home of Tomorrow -- TODAY!




















Given the Utter Corporate Lameness (UCL) going on in the world during the past... oh, 150 years, I've been wondering: how difficult was it for Disneyland to remove Monsanto's Plastic Home of the Future? And could this indeed be indicative of how hard it will be to extricate Monsteranto from our children's children's lives? This from Wikipedia:
"The house survived the introduction of New Tomorrowland in 1967, but closed shortly after, as Monsanto's attention shifted to their new sponsored attraction, Adventure Thru Inner Space. The building was so sturdy, that when demolition crews failed to demolish the house using wrecking balls, torches, chainsaws and jackhammers, the building was ultimately demolished by using choker chains to crush it into smaller parts. The reinforced polyester structure was so strong that the half-inch steel bolts used to mount it to its foundation broke before the structure itself did. The reinforced concrete foundation of the House of the Future was never removed. It currently exists in its original location, now found in the Pixie Hollow attraction. The foundation has been painted green and is currently in use as a planter."

Now, THAT'S recycling, corporate America style.

As per the above, here's a link to AcmeVaporware's exciting new SOUNDS page, featuring the above link, as a prime example of "Yesterday's Audio TOMORROW," not to mention Monsanto's vintage '60s corporate-speak.
