Today at Flavorpill, we wished that our apartment was more retro futuristic. We couldn’t believe that Barack Obama is a letter-writing Mad Men fanboy. We got some much needed style tips from Courtney Love’s new Tumblr. We fell in love with the French bulldog in the trailer for Todd Phillips’ new road trip comedy Due Date, which pairs two of our favorite actors: Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis. We learned about the movies and TV shows that have influenced Junot Diaz’s work. We wondered if Justin Bieber knows what meta means. We found out what Weezy’s average day is like in prison. (Spoiler alert: It involves push-ups and reading the Bible.) We loved Zelda on Paper. We witnessed some great moments in cursing on live television. We watched gorillas play an intense game of tag. And finally, we were happy to see that Star Wars geeks are everywhere — even lurking in NYC subway stations.
