Today at Flavorpill, we marveled at Sam Havia’s culturally relevant cassette tape paintings and the trippy art of teenage drug rehab patients. We wished we could un-see these creepy videos of monkeys wearing human masks and working as waiters. We learned that Bob Dylan actually wrote every popular song in the past several decades, including “Baby Got Back.” We wondered whether this sculpture was the world’s first portrait. We were excited for the return of one of our favorite shows, Treme, April 24. We loved James Blake’s cover of “A Case of You” by Joni Mitchell. Is there anything that guy can’t do? We placed bets on who will take the #1 spot in Salon’s Good Sex Awards. We spent far too long chuckling over these 45 ridiculous boy band photos. And finally, we learned that Dr. Dre started Burning Man — at least, according to someone on Tumblr who really, really seems to think it’s all some kind of crazy conspiracy.
