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


Today at Flavorpill, we were excited to hear that The Adventures of Tintin will soon be coming to DVD. We wondered why the Portuguese translations of Judd Apatow’s movie titles are so much funnier than the films themselves (for example, Superbad = Superguys Who Play Hooky). We loved this take on what your literary tote bag says about you. We learned a little bit about the hard knock life of an internet troll. We watched Dan Deacon’s crazy new short film Hilvarenbeek , which is a collaboration with his filmmaker pal, Jimmy Joe Roche. We wondered how Donald Glover got so good at crying. We were underwhelmed by the title of Beyonce’s fourth album — 4. We found out some of the science behind why we find certain things so annoying. We wanted to make a bid on Princess Beatrice’s royal wedding hat, which is going up for auction on eBay, with the proceeds to benefit UNICEF. And finally, we made plans to one day sample the best fried chicken in the universe — which is purportedly in Charleston, South Carolina.
