Today at Flavorpill, we wished that we lived in Barcelona, where T-Mobile has installed a larger than life version of Angry Birds. We decided that Brain Pickings’ roundup of 10 books that will teach you (almost) everything you need to know about culture would make a good summer reading project. We watched the worlds of two great artists — Rodin and Beyonce — collide. We enjoyed looking at these photos of famous historical figures in unexpected places. We wondered how long it’s going to take for us to forget this slightly disturbing news about apples. We loved that Paramount decided to go the vintage route with this illustrated Captain America poster. We were happy to read that AMC has renewed The Killing for a second season. We celebrated some of New York City’s best old school jukeboxes. We wondered if reports that NBC’s Salt Lake City affiliate, KSL Television, won’t be airing The Playboy Club this fall is a sign of more drama to come. And finally, we found it impossible to choose a favorite from among these photos of famous people hanging out with their vinyl. It’s probably a tie between Sophia Loren and Brian Wilson.
