Caution, may not be suitable for work…

AOL has bought Huffington Post; Sarah and Bristol Palin have both filed to trademark their names.   While we watch raw footage of the protests in the streets of Egypt carried out at times with sticks and stones, the click and whirr of mergers, branding, spin and insider knowledge continue unabated.  We live in strange times.

Logorama, a short film by the French animation collective H5, François Alaux, Hervé de Crécy + Ludovic Houplain, won a 2010 academy award under the category of animated short.  All of the images are logos and mascots and the “success” of the film is of course predicated upon our brand awareness and the degree to which we are plugged into our endlessly self-referential pop culture.

Will logorama be coming to a beach near us if the city council decides to sell advertising rights there? Of course we will have a say in assuring that the ads are….tasteful.

Remember the days of the union label? Proudly made in the USA….that’s one label I would gladly support. So instead of selling advertisement in our parks and beaches I wish Mr. Faulconer would spend some time soliciting jobs to make things in the USA/SD….that I could support.

Hey OB Dude- no “Union Label” No “Made in the USA?” Time for a change?
