Today at Flavorpill, we fell in love with illustrated sheet music. We learned what it cost eight women writers to make it in New York City. We smiled over this story about a 7-year-old cancer patient whose dream came true. We were happy to see Amazon will be reissuing the James Bond books. We remembered a time when the Beastie Boys terrified parents. We read a review about Abel Ferrara’s new web serial for Vice, which is set in a pizza shop and has a 1970’s vibe. We got excited (again) about Ridley Scott’s Prometheus thanks to this new viral tidbit featuring Michael Fassbender. We tried to guess the differences between Edith Wharton and Girls. We got nightmares watching Makode Linde’s performance at World Art Day at Moderna Museet in Stockholm. We went nuts over this 1928 bookmobile. We read a letter that the Eels, Mark ‘E’ Everett wrote to his 16-year-old self. And finally, we wondered what other kind of spreadsheets this guy keeps apart from the one about his Match.com dates. Creepy or just weirdly organized?
