What’s On at Flavorwire: The Links That Made the Rounds at Our Office

Recognizing that there’s an overabundance of stuff on the Internet (and it’s not everyone’s job to keep up with it all), Flavorwire is curating the best of what we come across — and share with our coworkers — in our daily meanderings around the web. Below, check out both the big and the obscure stories you might have missed during your long day at the office.

FW moms

Looks like more than one great black comedian is getting a well-deserved tribute at Tribeca. Like Pryor, Moms Mabley has gotten the full documentary treatment, thanks to Whoopi Goldberg. An openly gay, black comedian who began her career in the early 20th century, her fame ran counter to all expectations. HBO has bought the rights to televise the film, but the air date is not yet known; we’ll keep you posted!

FW Lil Bub

Also making the rounds at Tribeca Film is everyone’s favorite (very) disabled cat, Lil Bub. The little runt is definitely adorable, but what does it mean that she’s famous for being, well, deformed?

FW the-great-gatsby-2012

Trolling for new music? Plug in and give a listen to Sia’s new Great Gatsby track, the aptly named “Kill and Run.”

jwoww

As personal fans of JWoww, our fingers are crossed that her foray into real TV acting will actually be awesome, but come on — it’s Days of Our Lives. This will be terrible. Best of luck anyway, Jenny!

FW break so bad

And finally, the Internet gave us this. Really, who could ask for more?
