Today at Flavorpill, we browsed the shelves at the People’s Library of Occupy Wall Street — which recently started its own public readings series. We tried to imagine coming across this giant Lego man while walking along a beach in Florida. We decided that this clever (and fully-functioning!) Nikon camera getup is definitely the most impressive Halloween costume idea we’ve seen so far this year. We were thrilled to hear that the animator behind the unofficial Tintin credits was invited to the film’s premiere and got a job offer from Steven Spielberg. We learned how toothpaste gets made alongside Mr. Rogers. We were happy that AMC has renewed The Walking Dead for a third season. We listened to Patti Smith do a cover of U2’s “Until the End of the World.” We were a tad bit concerned by Burger King’s “all the Whoppers you can eat in 30 minutes” deal in Japan — can you imagine if they did that here in the US? And finally, we printed out a Ron Swanson mask, just to randomly wear it around the office.
