What’s On at Flavorpill: The Links That Made the Rounds In Our Office
Today at Flavorpill, we discovered what would totally be our new favorite flavor of ice cream if it really existed. We were as entranced as ever by the latest crazy mix from Pogo. We wondered if these Next Media Animation clips will ever get old after watching their latest, a summary of the Roger Ebert/Bam Margera Twitter drama. We downloaded the iPad app for Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, which includes such literary goodies as the original 1953 internal memorandum on the novel from editor Malcolm Cowley. We checked out a new piece from Banksy, which is a response to the British Transport Police’s anti-graffiti campaign “Operation Misfit.” We tried to imagine spending a month living in a museum in exchange for $10K. We wanted to grow our own adorable matchbox garden. We wondered if today’s cinematic landscape is really as bleak as it was back in the late ’80s after looking at this hand-drawn timeline of the AFI 100. And finally, we read Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas’s account of his life as an undocumented immigrant. We hope that his story has a happy ending.
