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


Today at Flavorpill, we liked Vulture’s checklist of things that you’re sure to find in any wedding comedy. We wished that we had dance moves half as good as the First Lady’s version of the Running Man. We got excited about all of the new books coming out out this month. We met a 29-year-old man baby who sleeps in a crib. We decided that Budweiser might be on to something with this whole “poolball” thing. We were impressed by this DNA helix chain made up of almost 3,000 people. We were confused by the premise of a new show starring Nathan Lane about “an unlucky actor whose career has been perpetually cursed by the fact that he resembles, but is in fact not, Nathan Lane.” We wondered if there’s any chance that Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s movie that sounds a bit like Party Down will help fill the hole that the dearly departed comedy left in our heart. We decided after watching this preview clip that we’ll be DVRing AMC’s latest soon-to-be critical darling, Hell on Wheels, even if it is a Western. We were excited to hear that Melissa Leo is writing a memoir that will be published by Simon & Schuster. And finally, we considered ditching our IRA in favor of investing in Barbies — although it sounds like it may be pretty risky.
