Today at Flavorpill, we learned about 10 products and services to help us face the end of the world. We watched The Frogs’ Bollocks and Other Assorted Bollocks by Stephen Ong — emphasis on the bollocks. We felt old looking at every item inside the 1992 Nickelodeon time capsule. We found out how to fix our email address after Facebook played switcheroo with our information without asking. We read a missive about tennis shirts. We vowed to read all 88 books that helped shape America. We listened to Flannery O’Connor read her short story A Good Man is Hard to Find. We liked the Dark Knight Rises billboard art. We tried to imagine the people who would go to the Avatar nightclub in South Africa, based on this ad. We squealed over a knitted Pee-wee’s Playhouse set. We observed Ukraine-style street gymnastics. And finally, we watched a surreal, feminist documentary about revenge. Talented female filmmakers seek retribution in the form of your dollars and cents.
