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


Today at Flavorpill, we found out the answers to 29 of fashion’s biggest mysteries. We visited the World Pizza Games/Pizza Expo, which we momentarily confused with The Hunger Games since it made us ravenous. Speaking of pizza … We wondered what possessed Urology Associates of Cape Cod to offer a free cheesy pie with each vasectomy. We got excited for a new Wes Anderson commercial. We went behind the scenes with the readers and booksellers who launched the Hunger Games franchise. We watched Improv Everywhere make New Yorkers very sleepy. We made our own bikes from scratch. We thought this flower installation was beautiful. We visited this essay about 1970’s film and the importance of film criticism. We watched a documentary about J. D. Salinger on VHS, complete with media glitches. We checked out a few smart, sensitive housing options for the homeless. And finally, we watched a Mark Fiore cartoon that asks if slacktivism is better than nothing at all — or as the animation puts it, “Kony or baloney?”
