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


Today at Flavorpill, we read up on the newest mock meat that freaked reviewers out. We learned 10 things we didn’t know about London’s Olympics. We reimagined Disney princesses as women of color. We listened to Scarlett Johansson cover Serge Gainsbourg’s “Bonnie and Clyde.” We watched Chris Marker’s YouTube channel in memory of the late director. We planned our next road trip with a new app. We found out what songs were included in the Olympics’ opening ceremony, now available for purchase. We discovered the five planets that could host life. We watched In The Shadow Of The Sun directed by Derek Jarman with an improvised score from Throbbing Gristle. We wanted to cam chat with Margaret Atwood. We browsed the first wave of movies that will be playing Austin’s Fantastic Fest. We couldn’t get enough of this Tom Waits video, which recalls Heath Ledger’s Joker. And finally, we cringed at 10 revolting foods people have made in prison. “Prison pizza” and “The Spread” both require trash bags.
