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


Today at Flavorpill, we wondered if Google paper towels are more absorbent. We were frightened by the story of a Peruvian gang killing people for their fat. We disagreed with Slate’s take on book trailers. We were blown away by Spencer Krug’s energy. We learned to be wary of any apartment with a portable sauna. We were excited for a new play about Muhammad Ali, starring Ben Vereen and Evan Parke. We analyzed the art of dating through Venn diagrams. We hoped that the rumors that Muse will headline Coachella were true. We had a hard time wrapping our heads around the idea of a new theme park in Rome that will have rides inspired by Ben-Hur and the films of Fellini. We found this beard head-cage appalling but awesome. And finally, we discovered 34 ways the New Moon movie is better than the book. Just looking at Taylor Lautner shirtless, we can come up with six.
