Today at Flavorpill, we considered starting a collection of celebrity finger puppets. We wished that we could get our hands on Jane Austen’s unpublished manuscript for a novel called The Watsons that’s going up for auction at Sotheby’s in London tomorrow — but sadly, we don’t have $330,000 to spare. We wondered if Rolling Stone’s “Rock Stars Who Look Like Wizards” will be the silliest Harry Potter-related feature that we’ll see all week. We watched a very young Louis C.K. do stand-up at Caroline’s in the early ’90s. We felt kind of sorry for Tom Green, who has emerged from the depths of obscurity to claim that he invented “planking.” We were kind of excited by the rumor that Kanye West will show a collection at New York Fashion Week in September. We couldn’t help but think that this Ryan McGinley lawsuit was kind of ridiculous. And finally, were thrilled to read that Errol Morris is making a film with Paul Rudd and Ira Glass. Is there any way that it won’t be likable?
