What’s on at Flavorpill: Links That Made the Rounds in our Office


Today at Flavorpill, we learned 50 facts about the 50 United States. We loved “Shoes,” the new song that art punk darlings Les Savy Fav wrote for their turn on Yo Gabba Gabba. We were jealous of all of the scooters and snacks at Google’s New York HQ. We mouthed along with the top 100 quotes from The Wire. We remembered the 7 shortest running sitcoms of all time. We wondered if having Jay-Z and the Smiths (as in Will and Jada Pinkett) producing Broadway’s Fela! will guarantee it’s a smash. We were excited to read that Chuck is coming back in January. We followed a purple vintage brocade jacket across the country. We watched Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” video as soundtracked by Skinny Puppy. And finally, we saluted Pink Floyd’s The Wall. The album — which inspired the film still above — turns 30 this month.
