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


Today at Flavorpill, we decided that it might be worth schlepping all the way to the Iowa State Fair to sample a plate of red velvet funnel cake, but we’d never go all the way to the moon for the cheese. We watched a supercut of 25 of the greatest unscripted movie scenes. We learned about Times New Roman’s complicated history. We crossed our fingers that Julianne Moore and Todd Haynes are serious about bringing a new TV show about “a recovering heroin addict who becomes a private eye in the fifties” to HBO. We read an excerpt from Colson Whitehead’s forthcoming “zombie novel,” Zone One, which is due out on October 18. We listened Mavis Staples and Win Butler cover “The Weight” at this past weekend’s Outside Lands festival in San Francisco. We witnessed the evolution of Apple ads over time. And finally, we were happy to see Dave Chappelle doing his first interview in nearly five years. We hope that this is an indication that he’ll be flying less under the radar in the future.
