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


Today at Flavorpill, we hoped the Nate Silver — the stats geek who was wrong about several Oscar winners — is just as wrong about New York failing to pass the marriage equality bill. We took a peek inside the new New York branch of the Ace Hotel. We liked the sound of Park Chan-wook’s Thirst — a vampire film that premiered at Cannes and got dubbed “a subversive Twilight.” We finally got around to reading Maureen Dowd’s last column, and found it funny that she called Dick Cheney a “rouge diva of doom.” We were grossly jealous of Donald Glover, a recent NYU grad and writer for 30 Rock who will be starring in that new Joel McHale show, Community. We wish we could go see him at the 92Y Tribeca tonight (he’s doing standup with Leo Allen and Eugene Mirman), but we’ve got to clean our apartment. We were frightened by this Russian Whale Tail trend. (And even more frightened by the tags on that post.) We were shocked to realize how long it’s been since Lindsay Lohan was in a real movie. That you know, like played in theaters. And finally, DON’T JUDGE US, but we are totally excited by the news that Kristin Cavallari will be joining the cast of The Hills. Go Team Kristin! Also: My Life Is Average.
