Today at Flavorpill, we put ourselves in the shoes of the trapped Chilean miners thanks to this clever infographic. We decided that we can’t wait to see HBO’s remake of Mildred Pierce — Kate Winlset and Evan Rachel Wood are both fantastic in the trailer. We paired up celebrities from the VMAs with their inanimate object doppelgangers. We were fascinated by Katy Perry’s Russell Brand manicure. We felt like Camille Paglia just doesn’t get Lady Gaga. Side note: Taylor Swift should always wear shoes when she performs. We were intrigued by the idea of Stranded, a single-issue magazine produced by 50 people stranded by the volcanic ash cloud in April. We enjoyed Florence and the Machine’s creepy new video for “Heavy in Your Arms.” And finally, we watched nine-and-a-half minutes worth of random people narrowly escaping violent deaths. It’s just the inspiration you need to go out and seize the rest of the day!
