Today at Flavorpill, we listened to a new song from Björk’s Biophilia and Missy Elliot’s remix of “Last Friday Night.” We were surprised by what Australian artist Jun Gil Park can create using bananas as his canvas. We channeled our inner Lloyd Dobler. We liked the looks of director John Ford’s Forever stamp, which is the first in a series honoring American filmmakers, and will be issued by the US Postal Service next year. We were excited to hear that Comedy Central is teaming up with Weird Al to premiere his first televised concert special in over a decade. We wondered what could have possibly inspired the Farrelly Brothers to give the Jersey Shore cast a cameo in their upcoming Three Stooges reboot — because it’s certainly not their acting skills. We loved these cheeky (but totally spot on) ads for the New York International Latino Film Festival. And finally, we got our first look at Jon Hamm taking on his new director role in the upcoming season of Mad Men. Is it just us, or is it totally bizarre seeing him and Elisabeth Moss goofing around in their normal clothes while on set?
