Today at Flavorpill, we celebrated some of our favorite library scenes from film and TV. We were excited to hear that Wikipedia will be joining the anti-SOPA blackout that’s currently planned for this Wednesday. We wondered what Coach Taylor would have made of Craig Finn’s solo debut, Clear Heart Full Eyes, which is currently streaming in full over at NPR. We tried to imagine who would want to take an Alaskan cruise with Kenny G. We asked ourselves if the latest poster for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is for real or some kind of inside joke. We lusted after this incredibly colorful typewriter. We found this manuscript version of Great Expectations almost impossible to make out thanks to Dickens’ unwieldy scrawl. We geeked out over this video showing how Google Image Search reacts when you begin your search with a transparent image. And finally, we were amused by these really old photos of very serious children posing with toys. What do you think it would have taken to get them to crack a smile? An iphone?
