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


Today at Flavorpill, we got a glimpse of what 10,000 yoga mats will look like in Central Park at our massive Yoga at the Great Lawn event. It takes place June 22, and registration ends the 15th. Have you signed up yet? We admired the gorgeous poster for Sofia Coppola’s new movie Somewhere but were less enthusiastic about George W. Bush’s first Facebook video. Something about hearing the words “I may be done with politics, but I’m not done with policy” come out of W’s mouth just worries us. We couldn’t decide whether a line of Sanrio-designed Doc Martens were garish or totally kawaii. As true children of the ’90s, we learned all we needed to know about the oil spill from an episode of Saved by the Bell. We couldn’t help clicking on a list of the 12 most watchable foreign films, despite our fundamental disagreement with the implication that most foreign films aren’t watchable. We wanted to go back in time and be BFF with this 12-year-old girl rapper. We soothed our ongoing Arrested Development withdrawal with a new viral ad from Will Arnett and Jason Bateman. Our inner video-game nerd and our inner music snob couldn’t agree on whether to be excited about Rock Band 3 , which will feature keyboards. We wondered whether HBO’s “female orgasm comedy” would be the new Sex and the City — except, you know, watchable. Last but not least, we absolutely fell in love with Robyn’s new album, Body Talk Pt. 1. Stream it in full here.
