Today at Flavorpill, we hoped the current condo crisis in Williamsburg could be fixed by the Housing Asset Renewal Program. We were frightened by the news of Kate Moss and Simon Cowell joining forces in a business venture. We spoke in foreign idioms. We decided that if it’s always going to top every movie list, then it’s really time we rented Citizen Kane. We learned some of the backstory behind True Blood‘s scary Maryann character. We wondered if the new Harry Potter film can possibly live up to all of the box office (and critical) hype. We figured out why book bloggers love them some Pynchon. We feared Jack White. And finally, we got lost in these pictures from county fairs. You can almost smell the fried dough, no?
