Roller Champions Preview: Rolling With Some Potential

Roller Champions is Ubisoft’s free-to-play, roller derby style competitive online game. The premise is straightforward: throw the ball into the goal and the first team to five points wins. Roller Champions is easy to pick up, but there are some strategy options to give you something to think about and experiment with.

Matches are 3v3 and take place in a variety of different themed arenas/locations. It’s a standard roller derby track but encased with high, clear glass walls around the inner/outer circle, which allows players more space to skate and more ways to strategize. There’s a single ball and both teams are fighting for possession; your goal is to get the ball and take it at least once around the track, uninterrupted.

Art Exhibition Champions Blemishes, Pimples, Scars And Other Glorious Flaws

For much of the world, a zit is something to be eradicated, a pimple covered up. Wrinkles, scars, bumps and blemishes of any kind are best hidden and hopefully obliterated, bringing the host of said flaws one step closer to physical perfection.

That being said, when have artists ever wanted to be like everybody else?

rebecca

Rebecca Morgan Self Portrait Wearing My Favorite Scarf and Sweater/My Face The Fattest It’s Ever Been, 2013 Oil and graphite on panel 14 x 12 inches

An exhibition at Invisible Exports, titled “Fetching Blemish,” glorifies all your hairy moles, your chipped teeth, your discolored flesh and your ingrown toenail, too. The show features artists working in portraiture and figurative work that revel in our human defects, the various bloody, fuzzy, off-center things that make us who we are.

The group show explores physical deformities as manifestations of inner turmoil, ugliness as a crucial element of identification and self-horror as an opportunity for liberation and even transcendence.

Cindy Sherman Untitled #362 from the Hollywood/Hampton Types series 2000 color coupler print mounted on foamcore 27 x 18 inches 68.6 x 45.7 cm Edition 3/6 signed, numbered and dated ‘Cindy Sherman 2000 3/6’ (on the reverse)

The ecstatically grotesque exhibition features work from emerging names like Genieve Figgis and Rebecca Morgan alongside beloved artists Cindy Sherman and Nicole Eisenman. It’s also a female-heavy roster, which we don’t mind one bit.

Rebecca Morgan’s self portraits funnel the artist’s visage through a Robert Crumb-style funhouse mirror, ballooning her flaws into hypnotic aberrations, turning the figurative portraits into a caricature’s freakish cousin. Queen of glamorous self-contortion, Cindy Sherman dons the disguise of a gnarled Hollywood vamp, skewing her appearance just beyond recognition. And Celeste Dupuy-Spencer’s oil paintings, straddling figuration and abstraction, muddle brushstrokes and human flesh, rendering murky visions of swamp girls and pizza delivery men that feel like half-remembered visions of a dream you’re desperately trying to forget.

The artists on view vary in generation, medium and style — though all consider themselves outsiders in some sense of the word. Their work often reacts to the dominant contemporary culture, which claims to accept and cherish difference, and hold the importance of self-acceptance and self-love above all else.

Yet, as Invisible Exports explains, “To many, those shibboleths are a foreign language, a small consolation and perhaps even an affronting falsehood — offering a narrative of full-inclusion that is so basically at odds with the lived intimate experience of otherness, no matter the cultural conditions, it can only be, for all its political virtue, an inert impersonal mantra and expressive nonstarter (and therefore its own kind of otherness). Ugliness is a much murkier, more enriching stew.”

sedaris

“Fetching Blemish” runs until February 15 at INVISIBLE-EXPORTS in New York. The other artists on view include Wolfgang Black, Nicole Eisenman, Genieve Figgis, Dan McCarthy, Aurie Ramirez and Amy Sedaris. Get a heavy helping of pretty ugly in the artworks below.

Channel Champions

Channel Champions


If product is no longer king, what is? Companies like Dell Computers, Lexus, Wal-Mart and Amazon.com have found phenomenal success by coming up with the answer-channels. The channels by which goods are marketed and distributed have become the new drivers of economic success. From these channels flow customer satisfaction, market share, revenue gains and profitability. It’s not so much what you sell today, but how you sell it. And there is no going back. In The Channel Advantage, Booz-Allen & Hamilton consultants Steven Wheeler an Evan Hirsh write about dozens of companies that have excelled in this channel-driven economy. In one telling example, Wheeler and Hirsch analyze the great success of Dell Computer. While Dell makes top-quality personal computers, it’s the company’s direct-to-customer sales channel that sets it apart. By building computers to order, Dell keeps inventory low, lets consumers buy exactly what they want, and pushes prices down by cutting out the middleman. The Channel Advantage examines today’s ‘Channel Champions,’ the companies that have mastered this new environment. Wheeler and Hirsh tell us how Lexus broke into the luxury car business by focusing so intensely on customer service that dealers personally called up customers to report a product recall. The authors also explain how the rise of Amazon.com represents the exploration of an entirely new channel: e-commerce via the Internet. Wheeler and Hirsh, both partners at Booz-Allen & Hamilton, the leading management consulting firm, base their exploration and analysis on real-world experience working with clients. They’ve not only identified this change, they’ve lived-making The Channel Advantage a must-read for anyone who wants to understand what it takes to thrive in today’s channel-based economy.
