What’s on at Flavorpill: The Links That Made the Rounds in Our Office


Today at Flavorpill, we argued over the symbolism of Kanye’s artwork for “Power.” We learned where some of the not-famous subjects of a few famous photographs are now. We were happy to hear that the smoking baby has cut back to a pack-a-day habit. We had flashbacks to middle school health class. We were proud that 82-year-old New Yorker W.S. Merwin has been named Poet Laureate. We watched Weird Al shred at a live show in Toledo. We decided that Awkward Family Pet Photos might be even funnier than the original. We were shocked by how much these tapestries look like actual photographs. We listened to previously unheard recordings of David Foster Wallace in conversation with David Lipsky. We downloaded Air’s remix of MGMT’s “It’s Working.” We liked this steampunk Ghostbusters tribute. And finally, we were blown away by 25 super creative product packaging designs — including, but not limited to, vagina can.
