Wofford Beats Western Carolina University 78-58 in Southern Conference Tournament

After its decisive 77-58 win over Western Carolina University on Sunday night, the Wofford College basketball team has advanced to the Southern Conference Tournament Championship game for the first time in school history. Wofford made 15-of-16 free throws in the final three minutes of the game to claim the victory at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, NC. Wofford has now won twelve in a row (and eighteen of its last nineteen games) and is 25-8 on the season and 15-3 in the Southern Conference.

Wofford will play Appalachian State University in the Championship Finals, which will be televised nationally on ESPN2 and be played at the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte at 9:00 pm on Monday night. The winner of that game will earn the conference’s automatic bid to the 2010 NCAA Tournament.

Logorama: A Hard-Boiled Heist Flick With An Earth-Shattering Twist!

Logorama is an award-winning, provocative and daring animated short film from the French H5 design collective.  The film screened earlier this year as an Official Selection at The Sundance Festival, and it has now won the 2010 Oscar for Best Animated Short Film.  The film takes the viewer on an entertaining, violent, profane, action-packed caper set in a world comprised entirely of well-known corporate logos and iconic mascots.  How familiar are the stars of this film?  Well, an evil Ronald McDonald embarks upon a shooting spree on a street overflowing with 7-Elevens, U-Haul trucks, Wal-Marts and Pizza Huts.   The Michelin Men are bumbling, foul-mouthed cops on his trail, and Bob’s Big Boy picks his nose and flings it on an unsuspecting victim.

But make no mistake, Logorama is a cleverly executed critique of our times.  Our world is fueled with the signatures of commerce and consumption, where everyday symbols are imprinted in our collective memories, nagging away on the subconscious, hand in pocket and ready to draw money from our wallets.  It is within this context that H5 go far beyond a simple exercise in artistic defiance.  This is the beauty of their work: they transgress the graphic codes of our everyday experience.  They place them within a completely different context, which sufficiently sparks considerable food for thought.
