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


Today at Flavorpill, our eyes played tricks on us thanks to this crazy street art installation in Stockholm by illusionist artist Erik Johansson. We decided after some internal debate that we’d be happy to see Leonardo DiCaprio play a villain in a Quentin Tarantino movie. We were surprised to read that AOL’s newsroom is now bigger than The New York Times (in case you’re curious, it’s a difference of about 1300 staffers vs. 1200). We checked out the first photo from the second season of The Walking Dead, which suggests that this year’s crop of zombies will be just as skin-crawling as their predecessors. We got super excited over this slew of action posters for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, but had a hard time picking a favorite one. We enjoyed this fictional account of why Emma Watson really left Brown a little too much (in fact, we think it should become a YA series). We wondered if women are capable of giving The Look too. We tried to figure out who has it the worst at NYC intersections after watching this clip — cars, bikes, or pedestrians. And finally, we thought that a Darren Aronofsky-directed re-telling of the Noah’s Ark story sounded promising — just imagine how dark and creepy he’d make all of the animals.
