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


Today at Flavorpill, we weren’t surprised to see that Avatar topped this list of the Internet’s most pirated movies. We were shocked, however, to hear that indie filmmaker Patty Jenkins (Monster) has signed on to direct Thor 2 — maybe this means we’ll see more character development? We examined some of the architecture found in different comic book cities. We wished Paul Simon a very happy 70th birthday. We found this exploration of what a independent band stands to make from services like iTunes and Spotify rather sobering. We wondered where all the Leos, Tobeys, and Jakes have gone. We craved apple pie cookies. We learned that we never ever want to work in a haunted house — no matter how sexy they seemed back in middle school. We questioned Nerve’s decision to put Chasing Amy at the top of a list of Kevin Smith’s best movies. We looked at how the ratings of some of our favorite canceled TV shows stack up against this season’s current crop. And finally, we were pretty impressed by this photo of Al Capone’s Eastern State Penitentiary cell in Philadelphia. Other than the peeling walls, his digs still look pretty swanky, right?
