Scenes in Cartoon Deserta


Perhaps the greatest design company that never existed is ACME, that make-anything, deliver-anywhere parody of consumerisms seemingly limitless offer. ACME brand-stretched before brands even recognized themselves as brands.


ACMEs speedy delivery of anything to anywhere - even to the sparsely populated desert, home to serial ACME customer Wyle E. Coyote reminds me of Reyner Banhams essay on the Sears Roebuck mail order catalogue. He argued that these catalogues were pivotal in the occupation of the American West, that the delivery of gadgets enabled the colonisation of the frontier landscape. You could think of it as a kind of gadgetecture, and an example of fresh-from-the-box, instant urbanism.


Of course, part of the parody of consumerism is ACME products often fail to deliver on their incredible promise - see Coyote v. Acme Products Corp.


The ORIGINAL Illustrated Catalog Of ACME Products is a great website, which shows every ACME product. Below is a small selection, including my personal favorite (in name at least): the ACME FUTURE PUSH BUTTON HOME OF TOMORROW HOUSEHOLD APPLIANCE CO.

See also Rosemarie Fiores macabre ceramic landscapes which create new endings for the cartoon drama of Wile E. Coyote and the Roadrunner. Each is a what she describes as a "Death Scene", where Coyotes traps, trips mechanics work smoothly, and the Roadrunner is killed - again and again.

Growing marijuana indoors is easy and legal, If you have a medical marijuana card. In some states in the USA you can actually grow up to 12 cannabis plants or more, legally. With that being said, it can be a bit of a pain to actually start growing your own.

But there is technology that can make growing marijuana indoors easy and fun. Indoor hydroponics systems can now be used to bring your herb garden indoors, and create danky, sticky marijuana and cannabis buds all year long; Ripe for the plucking and ready to smoke! Homegrown marijuna is higher quality, and much safer than pot that has been purchased commercially off the street. Those looking for medical benefits, will find growing their own marijuana to be the answer to creating your own medicine for pain releif and to treat symptoms.

Hydroponics is the practice of growing plants without soil. Most commonly, hydroponics cultivates plants in nutrient-rich water, although hydroponi
cs can also be considered to be the practice of growing plants in other aggregates, such as a soil-less bark-based mix. Hydroponics is an advantageous method of gardening both for home and commercial use. There are no weeds to deal with, and hydroponic plants are typically more healthy, mature earlier, and use less space. In addition, because it is entirely water-based, it is possible to fully automate a hydroponics system, so if the gardener is absent for an extended period of time, the plants will not suffer. The water is typically reused, as opposed to traditional farming methods where much water is lost through evaporation or runoff. In an indoor hydroponics system, plants may receive sunlight through artificial means such as grow lights. Another consideration for indoor hydroponic gardens is air circulation. This prevents fungal diseases and allows the plants to draw out the necessary carbon dioxide they require. The most important factor in hydroponics however, is the nutrient solution that must be mixe
d with water. Standard fertilizers are inadequate, because they lack some of the elements necessary that the plants would otherwise derive from the soil. Specially-formulated hydroponic fertilizer mixtures are required. These are widely available, but should be tested after dilution to ensure a pH of between 5 and 6. The nutrient solution should be changed every two weeks. In between changes, make sure that the volume is kept level by adding more water only, and not additional fertilizer formula. If water evaporates and the water level gets too low, the nutrient solution will become too rich and could actually burn roots. There are three different ways of culturing hydroponically-grown plants. The simplest one, the nutrient film technique, simply uses a plastic trough as a container. Holes are placed in the top to hold the plants. The trough is sloped slightly, so the solution will flow to a reservoir. Other methods include aeroponics, which suspends the roots in a mist rather than a solution, and aeration, w
hich uses an air pump to deliver oxygen to the roots that are immersed in the solution.

How do you grow cannabis and marijuana indoors? Look for a stealth hydroponic grow box with powerful lights and odor control...

Check this out!

Pretty nice huh? Indoor gardening for the 21'st centurty made easy with state of the art hydroponic grow systems. I know these are made for growing culinary herbs according to the web site, but they can be used to grow any plant! These grow boxes are great for the beginner or advanced gardener. I haven't used one, but my buddy says they work great for legal cannabis cultivation. My girlfriend wants one to grow her orchids and fresh tomatoes! But you can grow anything. Just remember to check your local and state laws before growing your own marijuana. Don't do anything illegal!! Be safe....

Hydroponics have been used to enhance vegetables to provide more nutritional value. A hydroponic farmer in Virginia has developed a calcium and potassium enriched head of lettuce, scheduled to be widely available in April of 2007. Grocers in test markets have said that the lettuce sells "very well," and the farmers claim that their hydroponic lettuce uses 90% less water than traditional soil farming.
