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


Today at Flavorpill, we learned how to re-create the present world’s essential technologies if we somehow time travel to a past without airplanes, Penicillin, and aluminum. We listened to the Dinosaur Feathers’ song inspired by and entitled “Vendela Vida.” (Yes, the one who’s married to Dave Eggers.) We watched Fran Lebowitz talk with her hands while calling Jane Austen intelligent and corrosive. We found out that Heidi Montag is possibly more obsessed with plastic surgery than Michael Jackson was. We had far too much fun reading Disney’s 10 Hottest Guys, due to the hilarious commentary that links Aladdin‘s Jafar to New Romanticism and The Little Mermaid‘s Eric to Jon Hamm. We gaped at the difference in hand size between the world’s tallest and smallest men. We played first person Tetris. And, finally, we learned of the top 10 places we can’t go in the world, and now we naturally want to visit. Impossible road trip, anyone?
