Today at Flavorpill, we enjoyed this atmospheric video tribute to the films of David Lynch. We giggled through Todd Barry’s audition to be Advil’s spokesman. We read some of our favorite writers’ musings on the least important events of 2011. We danced along to Chapter 9 of Girl Walk // All Day. We adored these glamorous vintage photos of a modeling agency, ca. 1948. We appreciated this colorful video of Maurice Sendak explaining his work. We seconded each and every pick on this roundup of the year’s best grimy, scuzzy, noisy indie-rock albums. (Roomrunner! K-Holes! Times New Viking!) We thought it was very funny that NBC is recycling the costume Adrianne Palicki wore in its failed Wonder Woman pilot for use on Harry’s Law. We added these contemporary party-rock anthems — with the notable exception of the Skrillex track — to our New Year’s Eve playlist. We found these sketches of fallen childhood icons very depressing. And finally, we wished a very happy 65th birthday to Flavorpill patron saint Patti Smith — and an extraordinary New Year to our readers. We’ll be counting down our top 10 most popular posts of 2011 over the holiday weekend and will be back in action Monday.
