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


Today at Flavorpill, our friends at TIME schooled us on some things that we didn’t already know about Labor Day. We refused to participate in the new Batmanning trend. We fought back feelings of nostalgia while watching a reunited Temple of the Dog play “Hunger Strike,” “Say Hello 2 Heaven,” and “Reach Down.” We were frightened by the news that Perez Hilton is working on a children’s book. We tried to decide which one of these wonderful TV families we’d like to be part of. We craved a slice of candy corn cake. We listened to some of our all-time favorite female singers cover Bob Dylan. We wondered if there’s any truth to the idea that Close Encounters of the Third Kind launched post-modernism. We saw a photo of the burning of the man at this year’s Burning Man festival. We paid a visit to the air sickness bag virtual museum. And finally, we learned that the Mister Softee jingle has lyrics — and they’re mildly disturbing.
