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


Today at Flavorpill, we channeled our inner archaeologists with news about a burial chamber filled with more than 80 mummies and a dozen infant remains. We judged 40 ’90s boy band members on their current hotness. We read 20 panels of Archie out of context. We browsed the lost projects of Dan Harmon. We were happy to learn that Doctor Who’s Matt Smith will carry the Olympic torch in Cardiff tomorrow. We hit the streets of San Francisco in 1971. We watched a collection of vintage toy commercials. We approved of Alan Rickman’s dramatic tea drinking. We discovered a 9-year-old student’s blog that tracks the sometimes “hairy” parts of her school lunches. We saw what the Avengers in dresses might look like. We loved this taxonomy classifying the hairstyles of 1980s musicians. And finally, we got to know @NotTildaSwinton a little better. How does she spend her free time? “I try to float in the water of my reflection pool for twelve to thirteen hours a day to keep my mind permeable.”
