Today at Flavorpill, we celebrated the 25th anniversary of Labyrinth by listening to “Magic Dance” on repeat and watching a behind-the-scenes documentary on the beloved Jim Henson film. We were happy to see that some of our favorite spots (Greenlight Books! Politics and Prose!) made this interactive list of the best independent bookstores in the world. We got a preview of this year’s Serpentine Pavilion by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Peter Zumthor, which opens to the public later this week. We fell in love with the latest minimalist pop culture print from Fabian Gonzalez — our favorite super heroes as flags. We wondered if Tom Hanks is in trouble with Pixar for blabbing that Toy Story 4 is already in the works. (In related news, we watched the trailer for Brave, the studio’s first fairytale.) We felt bad for eating so many tomatoes this past winter. We thought that Tina Fey’s hilarious memoir Bossypants deserved a higher ranking on Amazon’s roundup of the best books of 2011 so far. We couldn’t help but dance along to this catchy violin rendition of Katy Perry’s “Last Friday Night.” And finally we wondered what Lady Gaga was trying to say with this crazy eye makeup. Boo?
