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


Today at Flavorpill, we celebrated Movember with these celebrity mustache mash-ups. We explored the thirteen best vagina/food metaphors of song. We vowed to play the 100 best video games of all time. We became obsessed with skydiving cats. We watched one man read Fifty Shades of Grey as William Shatner, Yoda, and 48 other pop culture stars. We found out more about the return of Arthur magazine. We couldn’t wait to get directed by Quentin Tarantino. We learned how to make perfectly garlicky mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving. We discovered that Tyra Banks’ new app teaches you the fine art of smizing. We attended The Friskies — an Internet Cat Video Awards ceremony. We looked at furniture made for aliens. We spotted new images from the upcoming Hitchcock. And finally, we read Slate’s examination of why sci-fi went mainstream. “Despite the fear that they might be regarded as paramours of porn stars, despite the desperate genre policing of some organs of high culture, literary writers are increasingly turning to SF and dystopia. The question is why dystopia.”
