Today at Flavorpill, we ogled the new Google phone and bemoaned its $530 price tag. We found ourselves awed by the international drug trade’s liquid capital. We definitely felt the effects of good spelling rules in comic form after reading Pride & Prejudice in emoticons, then sicked ourselves out with hard evidence of just how much sugar is in a can of Pepsi. We considered enrolling in The Ethos of Lebowski 101 (though we like to think we’re at graduate level). A marriage proposal on The Weather Channel melted our cold, black hearts. We wondered whether farming can save Detroit and drooled over a prototype for spray paint with the full CMYK spectrum. We bid a fond farewell to Carl Kasell from NPR’s Morning Edition. And finally, we made a New Year’s resolution: to ring in 2010 with Bono and Swizz Beatz. Don’t know if you heard, boys, but we’ve got the hot tip on some good parties.
