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


Today at Flavorpill, we read Louis C.K.’s best responses to Vanity Fair’s Proust questionnaire. We wanted to attend this tasty Potato Chip Pop-Up show at gallery IAM8BIT, opening this Friday. We listened to Tom Cruise’s ex-girlfriend rap about Scientology. We talked about the beauty and tragedy of last Tweets. We sang with depressing Christmas carolers. We found out Samuel L. Jackson really wants to be in the new Star Wars films. We caught up with J. Hoberman’s review of the Whitney’s current Sinister Pop exhibit. We listened to Yoko Ono cover Katy Perry’s “Firework.” We discovered that texting to 911 will be available in 2014. We counted down the best films of 2012 with Criterion Corner. We prepped for the Instagram and Twitter photo filter showdown. We played goth club bingo, but wondered about the absence of clove cigarettes. And finally, we found out the answer to the eternal question about the cost of holiday decorations on those Clark Griswold-style houses. The house pictured here pays 26 cents per hour, which definitely adds up fast!
