Today at Flavorpill, we were impressed by this sculpture in front of the New York Public Library, which was created from 25,000 classic Dr. Seuss books in honor of Read Across of America. We downloaded Animal Collective’s free mixtape, which they put together to mark the ATP they’re curating in May. We wished we lived in Sedgwick, Maine, the first town in the US to pass into law their right to produce and sell local foods of their choosing, without the oversight of state or federal regulation. We imagined what Ernest Hemingway’s reviews on Yelp might have sounded like (A sample: “I met a woman who said she had been to Pinkberry. ‘What the hell is that,’ I said, and she laughed but said nothing.”). We were surprised by how many non-Harry Potter films have more than four Harry Potter wizards in their respective casts. We discovered that two of the drunkest cities in America can be found in Hawaii — and the remaining member of the top three is Fargo, North Dakota. We watched Pixar animator Nick Pitera’s one-man Disney movie. And finally, we wondered why Woody Allen would get in a boxing ring with a kangaroo.
