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


Today at Flavorpill, we went hunting for the Hipster Grifter. Instead, all we found was a whole bunch of deer. We set our alarms for midnight, when NPR will start streaming the new St. Vincent album. We relived the 10 great cover songs from Coachella — or at least the two of us who were lucky enough to go did. We wished that Peaches and Radiohead would go head-to-head. It would be a more even playing fieldthan Mileygate. We discovered a tiny talent we love even more than Susan Boyle. She’s six years old and magical. (And no one better offer HER a porn.) We watched the latest from Michel Gondry: an airline commercial. We felt bad for poor Stephen Hawking. We pondered a future where Superman comics will become legal tender. And finally, we appreciated this roundup of the Slumdog kids controversy. We’re not surprised that Uncle Grambo nailed it on the head. He’s smart like that.
