What’s on at Flavorpill: Links that made the rounds in our office.


Today at Flavorpill, we followed The Daily Show’s John Oliver on his amazing report into the White House press corps, wondered why M.I.A. would name her son Ickitt, but loved that the story was randomly broken by Latina magazine, learned that everyone can be a cited movie critic as long as they make YouTube comments on the preview for a bad Joshua Jackson movie; we felt kind of bad for this 55-year-old intern (and crossed our fingers); we adored this This Recording piece about recently-gray New York even if it made us depressed yearn for brighter times; declared it was no longer OK to write “ella, ella” after every time one uses “umbrella” in a headline; got really queasy reading about the scent created in Amanda Lepore’s honor; watched Jon Stewart blatantly skewer the Oscars; fell vindicated when we read Gossip Girl doesn’t satisfy Miranda July either; creepily noticed that James Franco is seemingly (and awesomely) holding a Don DeLillo novel in this paparazzi shot; started counting down the days until Hangover, with Bradley Cooper, Zack Galifianakis and Ed Helms, comes out in June after we watched after this teaser trailer; we hoped Lonny Ross’ return to 30 Rock was legit and that he gets actual lines next time; and remembered to not to forget to remember that Daylight Savings Time begins on Sunday! You shouldn’t either. Or maybe you should? We’ve confused ourselves.
