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


Today at Flavorpill, we examined how Star Wars changed the world. We discovered our NPR names. We chortled over The Onion’s “Treasury Department Issues Emergency Recall of All US Dollars” video. We found this Woody Allen/American Apparel drama completely weird — in fact, those are two proper nouns we never thought that we’d use in the same sentence. We freaked out over the tiny, handknit clothes in Coraline. We groaned over the Octomom’s confirmed TV deal. We programmed the lobster line into our phones. We cheered over this small victory for plays. We feared hipster genocide — not that it looks like we’re in much danger, but still. And finally, we’re holding our breath for Man on Wire 2. If Philippe Petit really does one of his stunts this autumn, we’re totally there.
