What’s on at Flavorpill: The Links That Made the Rounds in Our Office
Today at Flavorpill, we fell in love with Marc Ruygrok’s typographic sculptures. We discovered that Robyn and AC/DC actually make awesome mashup buddies. We laughed out loud over bits of Fast Company’s interview with Paul Vasquez, aka the Double Rainbow Guy, about his viral video. (A snippet: “When I shot the video, I was not high at all, I was not having sex, and I was not hiking, as a lot of people assume. This is my land that I bought in 1988. Wait, what was the question?”) We were super excited to hear that Alan Ball is creating a brand new series about a 20-something slacker based on Charlie Huston’s 2009 crime noir novel, The Mystic Arts of Erasing All Signs of Death. We surprised that so many people would want to make their iPad look like a 3D maxi pad. (Seriously, it’s a lot more popular than you’d think.) We were happy that the Today Show was shamed into letting gay couples compete to be married on the show — complaining works! — but confused about where said gays would be married if they won. Connecticut? We came across five artworks at the MoMA that looked good enough to eat. We wondered how Saul Bass would feel about his Girl Scouts logo getting bangs and a nose job. And finally, we were amazed by the stunning, edible works created by Jell-O artists in Gowanus last month — including a working lamp!
