Today at Flavorpill, we read about this digital copyright infringement nightmare. We learned why the details of the health care ruling could be lost on the public. We wished Atari a happy 40th. We remembered a few teen movie bedrooms. We watched a supercut of every movie ever screened on Mystery Science Theater 3000. We visited an Alfred Hitchcock Presents episode inspired by Roald Dahl’s Man from the South. We read tales about the Ritz Hotel in Paris by a writer who first went there with Hemingway. We wondered if anyone actually ate these bacon “Pop-Tarts” in 1964. We watched Joan Crawford on a 1970 talk show. We discovered what happens to 3 out of 4 girls who flip through a fashion magazine for three minutes. We wanted to play with Lego’s haunted house. And finally, we learned who the most influential young figures in the art world were. Everyone is under 30 and bound to inspire an existential crisis.
