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


Today at Flavorpill, we had no words for this. We wondered if a food-themed tatt should be considered a red flag in a potential mate. How’s about a Lego brick thumb tattoo? We found 50 geek-friendly My Little Pony dolls for future lady Trekkies. We wanted to adopt this Eminem-loving ginger. We downloaded a free EP from the lovely Owen Pallett. We couldn’t decide which we liked more: the inevitable Mel Gibson/Christian Bale mashup video or Mel Gibson’s rants, visualized. We unpacked all of M.I.A.’s musical baggage. We kind of wished that we lived in DC, but were happy not to live in Louisiana — where women earn 65 percent of what men do. We uncovered the identities of 10 famous ghost writers — including Shel Silverstein, who wrote “A Boy Named Sue.” We tried to imagine Andy Warhol putting his head in a Xerox machine. And finally, we contemplated the redemptive powers of internet memes. No, seriously.
