Today at Flavorpill, we tried to imagine a world where Ringo Starr didn’t end up as one of the Beatles. We thought that Jillian Tamaki’s “Have a Sexy Halloween” illustrations for The Hairpin were laugh out loud funny. We watched Rihanna puke out a bunch of ribbons in her new music video. We were excited by the news that a six-minute prologue to Dark Knight Rises will play before Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol in IMAX — but we’re not excited to pay for that ticket. We found it a little funny that Salman Rushdie likes Entourage, but thinks that Game of Thrones is “very addictive garbage.” We wondered if Chris Martin is a secretly a furry. We wished the legendary Divine a very happy birthday. We watched Devo hawk Honda scooters in this fantastic 1984 commercial. We were happy to see Peggy Olson looking so happy in this photo from the upcoming season of Mad Men. We wanted to buy a copy of this teeny tiny newspaper. We couldn’t wait to see French Stewart play “the best French Stewart celebrity impersonator of all time” on Community. And finally, we were intrigued to hear that according to a new study, people with more Facebook friends have denser grey matter in the regions of the brain linked to social skills than those who don’t. Crazy, right?
