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


Today at Flavorpill, we briefly considered this bizarre sweater onesie for the winter ahead. We were drawn to the awfulness of real estate agent headshots. We watched a moving performance of Pina Bausch’s legendary “Kontakthof,” put on by senior citizens. We browsed New York City’s Recession Art’s local holiday gift guide — connecting emerging artists and aspiring collectors. We remembered when six real-life authors turned themselves into fictional characters. We listened to Tupac mashed up with James Brown for the Django Unchained soundtrack. We saw what happens when kinky people take over a science surplus store. We chatted about the cult of Sylvia Plath. We said goodbye to outspoken Russian diva and muse, Galina Vishnevskaya. We found out what fitness guru Richard Simmons is up to these days. We watched a cute holiday message from Lil Bub and Andrew W.K.. We got eleganza while watching the season five trailer for RuPaul’s Drag Race. And finally, we met a rockabilly version of Batman. It turns out that superheroes and greasers are a great match.
