Today at Flavorpill, we watched Obama tweet for himself. We agreed that (regardless of whether she’s dating Jeremy Piven or not) January Jones is wack. We decided that they should rename the emergency brake something that’s a little less misleading. We wondered how anyone could have ever thought that crusty old Prince William was cuter than Harry. We finally understood what’s going on in the late-night wars thanks to the magic of Taiwanese animators. We were excited to hear that DreamWorks has hired playwright and Academy Award-winning screenwriter Ronald Harwood to pen the Martin Luther King biopic. We wanted to fall asleep to this indie-rock album of children’s lullabies. We voted for VocaForm, one of ten finalists in two categories in the 2009 Best App Ever Award contest — because it even comes in cake form. We really liked this nonconformist house. And finally, we streamed Beach House’s Teen Dream, which comes out next Tuesday. It was recorded in a converted church in upstate New York named… wait for it… Dreamland.
