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


Today at Flavorpill, we finally got that Avatar is Pocahontas trailer that we’re sure you were anxiously awaiting. We realized how much the Toyota Trucks logo looks like Frank Zappa’s mustache. After watching these spoiler clips from The Office, we wondered if it’s lame if it makes us cry when Pam Beasley finally gives birth next Thursday night. We were deeply, deeply disappointed by Carly Simon’s big reveal — and then we found it wasn’t true! (Side note: Does anyone else find the fact that this story involves playing a record backwards totally insane?) We encountered some rather Jersey Shore prejudice from da club of all places. We enjoyed Jezebel’s take on how classic children’s books might be updated for “today’s young MySpacerati.” And finally we met the terrible rock bands who lurk on the album charts for years at a time. These are also known as the bands VH1 likes to play when we’re at the gym in the morning.
