Today at Flavorpill, we dug our heels into the history of platform shoes. We quoted eight seasons of Desperate Housewives. We read BuzzFeed editor Gavon Laessig’s pejazzled experience. We thought this video of an eight-year-old autistic boy — who is also blind — with a blues guitarist was extremely touching. We found out where the happiest seaside towns are. We took in a little Coffee & the Newspaper. We were amazed at five mind-blowing dance videos. We enjoyed a transcript of Salman Rushdie’s censorship lecture. We felt Nietzschean observing this animated, Russian Winnie the Pooh video from 1972. We brushed up on our history of British bikemaking circa 1945. We discovered Leonard Nimoy wanted to play the villain in Star Trek V. And finally, We confirmed that 1933, not 1939, is the greatest year for classic movies. You have found your new watchlist for the coming months.
