Today at Flavorpill, we watched the new Mykki Blanco video directed by Francesco Carrozzini. We talked about pop culture’s summer vacation. We were floored by this ballpoint pen portrait, which looks amazingly real. We were surprised by the deadliest occupation in this interesting infographic. We learned 12 hotel secrets from staff members — some of them kind of horrifying. We watched a mock PSA about “Sweatsy shops,” parodying Etsy sellers. We read about The Beatles in comic books. We shopped for 24 superfruits you can’t live without. We made popsicle stick chandeliers. We discovered six Tony Scott filmmaking tips. We spotted the shooting schedule, notes, and scene breakdowns for Godard’s Pierrot le Fou. And finally, we matched literary quotes with their doughnut soulmates via the New Yorker. The title, As I Lay Frying, won us over.
