Today at Flavorpill, we surprised to discover that Bat for Lashes’ Natasha Khan has an alien altergo. Do you think Radiohead knew about it when they invited her on tour? We eyeballed this year’s pretty finalists for best magazine design. But what in the heck is onEarth? We daydreamed about taking a tour of Ben Afffleck and Jennifer Garner’s pricey new LA home. We were happy to hear that Spike Lee’s Passing Strange adaptation had been picked up by PBS at Tribeca. Now we can watch the rock musical at home! We realized that thanks to the swine flu epidemic, we’ll probably have to wait even longer to see the most delayed apocalypse movie of all time, The Road. We were proud of our fellow geeks for using their geek smarts to try and save NBC’s Chuck. Although we’re not sure it’s enough… We loved the irony of Devo’s Mark Mothersbaugh getting fired from Drew Barrymore’s upcoming film, Whip It! (Come back on Monday for an interview with the screenwriter.) And finally, we’ll send you off with this image of the “F*cking Hipster Cat.” We once dated a guy with those exact frames.
