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


Today at Flavorpill, we examined the last words of 25 geniuses. We argued over Nerve’s rankings of Terrence Malick’s limited filmography. We watched Neil Gaiman, Amanda Palmer, Moby, and Stephen Merritt sing “Science Fiction Double Feature” from The Rocky Horror Picture Show. We were amused by some of the horrible things that strangers have said to the readers of The Hairpin. We wanted the adorable tote bag pictured in Apple’s 1983 gift catalog. We wondered if someone at Chevy was inspired by Dear Photograph when creating this new ad. We couldn’t decide which of these pop culture Chuck Taylors would go with more of our wardrobe: the Breaking Bad ones or the pair inspired by The Walking Dead. We looked at some of the cartoon world’s most impressive facial hair. We learned an interesting new self-esteem technique from Jenny Slate. And finally, we found Anne Rice’s recent catty comments against Stephenie Meyer rather hilarious — but we’re also suddenly curious as to who would win in a Lestat vs. Edward showdown.
