Today at Flavorpill, we were impressed that someone took the time to scrawl the entire first chapter of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone on a bathroom stall wall. We found Ulysses much easier to understand when translated into bar codes. We were impressed by these customized Nike Dunks inspired by Firefox, Twitter and Google, which were designed by Daniel Reese. We were intrigued by rumors that Kevin Costner may have a “key role” in Zack Snyder’s Superman movie. We were surprised to hear that Bill Cosby agrees with Katie Couric that a “Muslim Cosby Show” could help combat Islamophobia in America. We learned that an Egyptian man has named his daughter “Facebook” in tribute to success of protests. We loved this list of 10 British costume dramas to Netflix while we wait for Downton Abbey to return. And finally, we feared the potential trickle down effect of the face tattoos trend in the hip-hop world. Will kids in the suburbs be requesting the “pink duck” in the not-so-distant future?
