Today at Flavorpill, we found John Edwards’ smiley mug shot absolutely terrifying. We were thrilled to hear that Lauryn Hill performed a recognizable (if slightly sped up) version of “Doo Wop (That Thing)” on Jimmy Fallon last night. We listened to Werner Herzog read Go the F*** to Sleep. We met a bunch of people who became nouns. We were kind of jealous of this woman’s iPad hat. We streamed The Guardian‘s 100-track history of modern dance music. We were impressed by the work of Polish artist Marek Tomasik, who built a 16′ x 14′ x 15′ room out of old computer parts. We wondered what look Helena Bonham Carter is going for in a new campaign for Marc Jacobs. We giggled over old footage of Larry David doing standup back when he had hair. And finally, we learned the secret history behind Oreos’ signature embossed look.
