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


Today at Flavorpill, we fell in madly love with the SNL Christmas card thanks to its delightful Stefon-meets-Rockwell-painting premise. We got a better idea of what 7 billion people looks like. We watched a very hairy Jeff Tweedy do his best impression of a weather dude. We wondered if BuzzFeed had a hard time narrowing down its list of the 20 most important cats of 2011. We were afraid that our Kindles might secretly be spying on us. We hoped that Stephen Daldry’s plans to turn The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay into an HBO miniseries actually pan out. We couldn’t decide which Golden Globes-related tweet we found funnier: the heartbreaking original by Jason Segel or Neil Patrick Harris’ hilarious followup. We read The New York Times’ 1949 review of George Orwell’s 1984 in which the book is referred to as “a work of pure horror, and its horror is crushingly immediate.” We made note of The Hairpin’s helpful advice for festival holiday boundary setting. We were excited to see that Kanye has returned to Twitter. We checked out the latest from Banksy, a pixelated new sculpture called Cardinal Sin. And finally, we decided to end our day with this excellent “at the end of the day” supercut from VH1. We have but one complaint: needs more Mob Wives.
