Today at Flavorpill, we found solace in the fact that Train’s “Hey, Soul Sister” topped Maura Johnston’s list of the 20 worst songs of the year. We played pin the mustache on Hall & Oates and looked at 15 of the greatest mustaches in Coen Brothers history. We read a 6-year-old’s scathing review of the Spider-Man musical. We enjoyed Videogum’s retrospective of the best viral videos of 2010. We were surprised by how drunk the Tri-State Area is. We wondered how much Julian Assange is getting paid by Knopf to write his memoirs. We watched Paula Abdul slur inspirational things in the teaser clip for her upcoming show, Live to Dance. We found it hard to believe that a Blu supporter really vandalized Jeffrey Deitch’s bathroom. We were creeped out by this animated adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Christmas poem “Nicholas Was…” And finally, we loved the cover of the latest issue of Seattle Weekly so much that we wanted to gay marry it.
