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


Today at Flavorpill, we agreed with BuzzFeed that all hip hop tracks sound better mashed up with Disney movies. We didn’t understand Waffle House’s “new limited edition” line of salads. We loved one Redditor’s photo series recreating classic film moments with his cat. We read a case for loving tennis player Maria Sharapova as the ultimate underdog. We played detective with a group of unidentified Civil War photos. We took a peek at Daniel Johnston’s new t-shirt designs. We got to know assorted presidential pets. We hoped any marriage would live long and prosper with this Star Trek engagement ring. We looked forward to seeing Harlan Ellison’s first novel Web of the City back on the shelves. We celebrated the 30th anniversary of E.T. We got the scoop on all of Apple’s new MacBooks. We laughed at McSweeney’s increasingly threatening taglines for beauty products. And finally, we listened to an early version of David Byrne and Brian Eno’s groundbreaking 1981 album, My Life in the Bush of Ghosts. Dangerous Minds advises that this version differs from one in wide circulation since the early 1990s.
