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


Today at Flavorpill, we chortled over the fact that James Cameron is working on a prequel novel to Avatar that should be finished later this year. We were creeped out by Robert Smith’s cover of “Very Good Advice” for the Alice in Wonderland soundtrack. We wanted to buy some of The Lost Art of Inglourious Basterds — Quentin Tarantino, Upper Playground and the Weinstein Company have all teamed up on the poster project, and it benefits Haiti. We wondered if making our own music video for “You’re So Vain” could be our claim to fame. We found it funny that Madonna waited until now to launch her own fashion line. We peeped the winning photographs from the 2010 World Press Photo Contest. We made a mental note to tell you to read this Roger Ebert interview in Esquire (also, if you’re not already following his journal, you should). We were sad to hear that the lead singer of the Knack had died, but happy to meet his Sharona. And finally we watched the first episode of HBO’s latest, The Ricky Gervais show, which premieres on Friday. You can download it for free now on iTunes.
