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

Today at Flavorpill, we witnessed the evolution of hands at gigs. We got hungry looking at this candy portrait of Tina Fey. We were excited to hear that IFC has greenlit Portlandia, an original comedy series about the inhabitants of Portland, Oregon. We wanted to live inside of a life-size 600-pound gingerbread house. We couldn’t believe that Kanye canceled his upcoming Today Show performance because of Matt Lauer — now he really looks angry and spoiled. We were intrigued by Jonathan Safran Foer’s new book Tree of Codes, which he constructed by taking his favorite book, The Street of Crocodiles by Bruno Schulz, and cutting out words to form a new story. We were blown away by these unreal 3D murals by Eric Grohe. We wondered why the “Andy Warhol New York City Diet” never became a full-blown fad. We saw what it would look like if Banksy tagged Downing Street. We loved this list of the top picture books from 2010. We wondered if we’re going to be able to afford a Thanksgiving turkey this year. And finally, we were surprised to discover that Carey Mulligan is the current frontrunner to play Daisy in Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of The Great Gatsby. At least it’s not Blake Lively…
