Today at Flavorpill, we practiced the art of the out of office email. We found out how many balloons it would take to lift our apartments into the air. We wished everyone a happy Thanksgiving, Twin Peaks-style, and then we imagined a Breaking Bad Thanksgiving. We watched Ai Weiwei’s latest video project featuring the artist unscrewing a screw. We learned more about the making of The Shining. We attempted to make Marilyn Monroe’s turkey recipe. We saw a sad, but beautiful image of Seaside Heights, NJ post Hurricane Sandy. We read about the theft of author George Eliot’s portable writing desk, which is indeed covetable. We listened to a Thanksgiving playlist. We caught up with The Twilight Saga thanks to this pictorial primer, and now we don’t have to watch the movie. We cooked up these pop culture-inspired pot luck meals for the holiday. We met the lamest villains in action movie history. We wondered if it was possible to redesign football to be a safer game. We memorized this cheat sheet so we could explain the election to our relatives. And finally, we were bummed to find out that the Snoopy balloon is being downgraded in this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Mickey Mouse and Kermit are not happy.
