Today at Flavorpill, we wondered if you’d even be able to smell this steak scent-emitting billboard if it was in Times Square. We crushed on NPR a little harder after watching this video that they made for D8. We got to see what Google Creative Labs’ Ed Kim wears to work each day, thanks to the self-illustrations on his Tumblr blog. We wished that these redesigned license plates would become a reality — especially New York’s. We found a bicycle seat cover that will ensure that your ride never gets stolen again. We wanted to crawl inside of this giant R2D2 and take a look around. We were happy to hear that the geeky Star Wars kid is now a slightly less geeky law school student. We made plans to visit all six of the world’s best-looking bookstores. We couldn’t wait to read Jonathan Lethem’s upcoming book about John Carpenter’s They Live, which is part of a new series from Soft Skull. And finally, we wished that we could see “the numerous costume changes” in Weird Al’s first-ever European show at ATP later this year. We’re sure his performance will be almost as epic as the #weirdalgoneindie hashtag game that the news inspired.
