Today at Flavorpill, we got the scoop on Mantyhose, which are exactly what you think they are. We found out why Chartbeat is an “addictive, sanity-ruining stats tool.” We said goodbye to Austin icon, Leslie. We watched last night’s Shins show. We saw an Eyptian prosthetic toe. We missed Lip Lickers tins. We discovered how a medical illustrator creates his works. We traveled with the Golden Girls to Space Mountain. We made a few vinyl butterflies. We wondered if this dating website that people can use to find out “What went wrong?” was too awkward. We met Ralph Baer, a 90-year-old video game pioneer. And finally, we were excited to find out that actor Steve Martin will be writing new music that will be performed by a live bluegrass band for the Shakespeare in the Park production of As You Like It. The news made us think of our favorite scene from The Jerk.
