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


Today at Flavorpill, we found out what people really think of the first page of David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest, including “There are so dang many HYPHENS!” We looked at a photo of Company costars Christina Hendricks and Neil Patrick Harris hanging out in their underwear. We imagined what it would be like to live in a $4.65 million replica of the White House. We were impressed by this artist’s crazy banana carvings. We watched the old Britney Spears and the new Britney Spears have a tragic dance off. We made plans to stream all five Sidney Lumet films that are currently available on Netflix Instant. We read Salon’s exhaustive primer on HBO’s Game of Thrones. We were intrigued by the news that Zooey Deschanel will be contributing a few original songs for the upcoming reboot of Winnie The Pooh. We were surprised that God agreed to be interviewed by Vice — even if it was about the Westboro Baptist Church (also surprising: how much he resembles Dumbledore). And finally, we became incredibly nostalgic while reading this New York Times profile of Beverly Cleary, who turns 95 years old (!) tomorrow.
