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


Today at Flavorpill, we watched a clever/slightly disturbing commercial featuring animal-free animal memes. We were frightened by this infographic that visualizes the US debt crisis as a really tall skyscraper made from $100 bills — fingers-crossed Ben Affleck will save us all. We decided that it’s been way too long since we’ve celebrated Tina Fey’s comedic genius. We saw some of our favorite works of art get a major makeover. We couldn’t believe that Facebook would censor the cover art of the Nevermind reissue — they’re about 20 years late to that controversy party. We wondered if we should take it as a bad sign that Frank Darabont has reportedly stepped down as showrunner for The Walking Dead. We were surprised to see how closely some of these famous mothers and daughters in Hollywood resemble one another when you look at photos of them at the same age. We reconsidered the work of Diane Arbus, who ended her life 40 years ago this week. And finally, we loved Entertainment Weekly’s roundup of the 13 funniest Broadway musicals ever. How many shows have you seen that made their list?
