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


Today at Flavorpill, we met the world’s most typical person. We examined our overuse of the word “random.” We wondered how much money the celebrities in this new Annie Leibovitz-shot ad campaign for Disney Parks were paid to dress up like classic characters (particularly poor unfortunate Queen Latifah as Ursula). We enjoyed this collection of things that well-known and respected people and publications were wrong about. We were excited by the idea of David Fincher and Kevin Spacey working together again — this time on a TV show. We came across a new line of beer that “infuses the beer with a citrus flavor that appeals to the taste of the LGBT community.” We were horrified by this nice and naughty dude’s Black Swan-inspired tattoo. We got lost in Smithsonian Wild’s gallery of 201,000 camera trap images of animals from around the world. We wanted to turn our life into a comic book. And finally, we were happy to read about how Edward Gorey, the “master of high-camp macabre,” is still influencing pop culture over a decade after his death.
