Today at Flavorpill, we prepared to welcome our immortal jellyfish overlords. We couldn’t wait for an Alamo Drafthouse to open in Brooklyn. We discovered that someone actually owns a unicorn patent, and we explored an ancient unicorn lair. We met a badass cat that looks just like Batman. We got the scoop on some new songs Arcade Fire played at a show this past weekend. We spotted an installation at the former Borders flagship store that is a giant memorial to books and bookstores. We watched five-hours worth of airplane landings in 30 seconds. We were introduced to a workout inspired by 50 Shades of Grey. We looked at the handwriting of typographers. We traveled everywhere with Johnny Cash. We watched the teaser for Beyoncé’s autobiographical documentary. We found out how to make our voice sound like Darth Vader. And finally, we gazed at the monstrosity that is Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s collaboration with Damien Hirst. It’s a $55,000 pharmaceutical-covered backpack, of course.
