Today at Flavorpill, we voted for Time’s Person of the Year. We crushed on Ryan Gosling in his new glasses. We remembered Tony Stark’s super sassy nicknames for his Avengers pals. We learned nine ways to make sure the restaurants we eat in are clean. We watched a new rerelease trailer for the original Django. We listened to a tiny fleet of robots play Beethoven. We got lessons for creatives from the world’s biggest rappers. We wanted to buy this Star Wars Death Star tea infuser. We read several sweet and beautiful letters from astronaut Jerry Linenger to his young son. We spotted the poster for the Doctor Who Christmas special. We enjoyed some lovely illustrations picturing Dorian Gray for volume two of The Graphic Canon — “the world’s great literature as comics and visuals.” And finally, we watched some high schoolers perform a musical version of The Shining. Yes, really.
