Today at Flavorpill, we lusted after Jenny Holzer’s limited-edition line of canvas sneakers for Keds, which benefit the Whitney Museum of American Art. We read the first review of Jonathan Franzen’s upcoming September release, Freedom. (Spoiler alert: Publishers Weekly thinks it could save Christmas book sales!) We reconsidered Asher Roth. We wished that this hilarious Funny or Die video was the real commercial for the iPhone 4. We tried to survive this ridiculous heat wave. We learned not to mess with the women of The Daily Show unless you want an open letter-style ass whoopin’. We felt really young compared to multicellular organisms that are 2.1 billion years old. We looked at pictures of birds wearing hats. We perused the 2010 Polaris shortlist. And finally, we watched this clip of 30 minutes worth of fireworks in just 3 minutes. Total. Mind. Explosion.
