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


Today at Flavorpill, this headline from The Onion — “Cost Of Living Now Outweighs Benefits” — cracked us up. Unfortunately, for some people it’s not a joke. We empathized a little too much with this comic. We crushed on Martha Cooper: “Chronicler of the Furtive Arts.” We found out who makes Web sites. We geeked out over some presidential pirate graphs and live piracy maps. We wondered if the ’70s really was the worst decade ever. We couldn’t handle the overwhelming weirdness of Kanye West + Jared Leto + Brandon Flowers all IN ONE ROOM. We thought about our favorite food movies and then parsed this foodie version of “Lazy Sunday.” We were grossed out by this. We checked in with some Deadheads. We discovered that Michael Bay is not on Twitter. (He thinks it’s a waste of time.) We felt bad for Ugly Betty and Adele. We got sucked in by Time Magazine’s Top 10 Literary Stunts. (We’ll always be partial to Barbara Ehrenreich’s Nickel and Dimed.) And finally, the idea that New York might be the next state to legalize gay marriage made us positively giddy. Woot woot, and goodnight.
