What’s On at Flavorpill: The Links That Made the Rounds in Our Office
Today at Flavorpill, we dreamed of becoming the proud owners of a panda cow — although we have no idea what we’d do about pet care after the Rapture. We visited the amusement park where the kid in Big made his wish, and the Universal Studios backlot where Back to the Future was shot. We made a vow to watch less TV in 2011 — or at least less than the 34 hours a week that the average American consumes. We were envious of Hank Gioiella, who paid just $5,500 for the green 1972 Chrysler station wagon that John Lennon and Yoko Ono owned. We felt bad for laughing at Paula Abdul, who told Julie Chen that she has a brain and has never been drunk in her life — she’s just goofy. We found out that our own brain is 10% smaller than our ancestors’ were. We learned how footballs are made. We looked at some of New York City’s ugliest apartments. And finally, we watched what The Awl considers the 10 most wonderful internet films of 2010. Did your favorite clip make the cut?
