Today at Flavorpill, we debated what it means to be “so Brooklyn.” We compared the food in fast food ads with what you actually get on your plate. We laughed out loud over these photos of the dumbest T-shirts at Glenn Beck’s rally of crazies. We wanted to live in this pretty housing complex in the Netherlands that is made specially for musicians and features “parasitic music rooms and pyramid skylights” — even though we don’t play an instrument. We experienced The Bible as an 8-bit video game. We watched a decade’s worth of Ricky Gervais laughing. We were amused by the idea of hipster dinosaurs. We thought there was something kind of creepy about this underwater honeymoon suite in the Maldives. We wondered who still updates their MySpace page. And finally, we decided that if you need to hire someone to send you flowers and you-go-girl texts, then maybe you don’t deserve them in the first place.
