Today at Flavorpill, we listened to the first new music from Amy Winehouse in what feels like forever and watched Willow Smith’s television debut performance on Ellen. We got excited by the idea of a new Broadway musical about Houdini that will star Hugh Jackman with a book by Aaron Sorkin and music by Danny Elfman. We wondered how many calories is in Phil Hansen’s “Mona Greasa.” We did our best to figure out these 48 band names rendered as icons. We checked out photos of the Dia de los Muertos festivities in Oaxaca, Mexico. We were creeped out by a piano-playing Marie Antoinette ladyrobot at Versailles. Those eyes! We looked at nine examples of branded environments that mimic the web’s fluidity. We were impressed by Simon Schubert’s incredible folded paper art. And finally, we were reminded by the release of Jimmy McMillan’s “The Rent Is Too Damn High” music video that we still need to go out and vote. Have you?
