Today at Flavorpill, we wondered if offering airline passengers the ability to choose seatmates according to their mood felt like a genius idea or a weird dating service. We watched comedian Mark Malkoff’s unusual Netflix challenge. We found out what Mad Men actor Jared Harris had to say about his final act. We read up on who approved of Gwyneth Paltrow’s use of a racial slur on her Twitter account. We calculated the fines regarding an 80-year late library book that was recently returned. We watched Die Antwoord’s video for “Baby’s on Fire.” We discovered that the Judd Foundation will open Donald Judd’s New York home and studio to the public next spring. We wanted to live in this magical mirror house. We explored 14 deserted morgues and mortuaries. We enjoyed this 100 years of Paramount Pictures’ poster. We searched for the global hip hop generation. And finally, we mused about the enduring fashions of Blade Runner. Will Prometheus’ seemingly minimal aesthetic have a similar effect?
