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


Today at Flavorpill, we thought that this little kid dressed up like Carl Fredricksen from Up was quite possibly the cutest thing that we will ever see. We looked at the jaw-dropping views from the world’s tallest observation deck at the Shanghai World Financial Center. We watched an amazing time-lapse video of 47,000 people running across the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge at the start of the New York City Marathon. We listened to a segment from one of Tina Fey’s two new hour-long radio specials, “The Hidden World of Girls.” We had to hit replay on the new “Muppet Show Theme” about five times in a row before locating the Joanna Newsom vocals. We visited Track 61, the long-abandoned train platform that’s underneath the Waldorf-Astoria. We hopped on board of The Guardian‘s world literature tour, which is currently focusing on writers from Argentina. We wondered if Andy Rooney was really “The Godfather of Troll.” We were amused to learn that Hold Steady frontman Craig Finn is working on a Friday Night Lights tribute album. And finally, we were impressed by this 3-D Lego army that was designed by Leon Keer for Chalkfestival in Sarasota, Florida. Don’t the minifigs look real?
