Today at Flavorpill, when we were supposed to be busy drinking green beer rather than working, we marked our calendars for the Beastie Boy’s Check Your Head Deluxe Reissue on March 30. We imagined being crazy enough to make an 11,000-mile voyage in a plastic bottle boat. We voted for the Name of the Year: fingers crossed for one Taco Vandervelde. We wondered how kids in high school are going to feel about six more works from William Shakespeare. Ha. We kept reading this as “Weird diamond heist piece” and getting confused about what made it so odd. We squawked at this and this, and then balked at this. We were surprised to learn that God Hates Figs — they always seemed rather biblical to us. We pitied Neil Gaiman in this awkward appearance on The Colbert Report. And finally, we decided to send you off on St. Paddy’s day with the true spirit of Ireland. Andrew Sullivan’s right: The Simpsons captures it best.
