Today at Flavorpill, we perked up our ears at an ode to libraries. We discussed a recent study that found women are “lazier” than men. We saw what the houses in Edward Hopper’s paintings looked like now, in real life. We found out who all the popular character actors were in The Dark Knight Rises. We thought eyeball stitches sounded painful, but looked kind of beautiful. We tried to find 10 civilizations that mysteriously vanished. We declared this brief history of sliced bread the best thing since… yeah. We studied the 25 new faces of independent cinema. We watched the trailer for a Tetris documentary. We checked out the five most wearable Olympic uniforms. We watched a promo video for Rainn Wilson’s talk show Metaphysical Milkshake and saw the van he’ll be hosting it in. And finally, we learned more about F. Scott Fitzgerald’s intimate connection to Lake Forest, Illinois from Flavorpill’s New York Deputy Editor, Jason Diamond. Hint: it has to do with his first, true love.
