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


Today at Flavorpill, we sent this tax form for the marginally employed to almost every marginally employed person we know. We imagined what it would be like to live on a floating island the size of Hawaii made from the plastic floating out there in the Pacific Ocean. We were afraid of Tactical Nuclear Penguin — a Scottish beer that has 32% alcohol by volume (ABV), which is more than six times the strength of your average can of Bud. We’re we were excited to hear that Joss Whedon is in final negotiations to direct The Avengers. We wished that someone would buy us this I’m With Coco doll. (He even has a detachable beard!) We were happy to hear that HBO has already renewed David Simon’s Treme for a second season. And finally, we watched Justin Vernon covering Tom Petty’s “Crawling Back To You” with the National’s Aaron and Bryce Dessner. Totally. Dreamy.
