Today at Flavorpill, we listened to a new song from Björk’s Biophilia and Missy Elliot’s remix of “Last Friday Night.” We were surprised by what Australian artist Jun Gil Park can create using bananas as his canvas. We channeled our inner Lloyd Dobler. We liked the looks… Read More
Here at Flavorpill, we don’t pound chests when our posts get tons of “Likes.” We don’t keep a supply of warm Keystone Light under our desks. And on the rare occasion when we do wear a tie, it’s wrapped snugly around our necks, not our heads. But our recent partnership with Comedy Central changed everything. If you haven’t checked out their new show, Workaholics, then you’re missing out. It airs Wednesdays at 10:30pm. Briefly, it’s a bro-tastic chronicle of the lives of three fresh-out-of-college best friends thrust into the professional world via entry-level telemarketing gigs.
We launched a contest last week asking Flavorpill readers to write their own bro-ballads and shoot a video of themselves performing them. Think Queen, “You’re My Best Friend” or Tenacious D, “Friendship.” The response was overwhelming, and we’ve cobbled together a shortlist of our favorite submissions after the jump. … Read More

Comedy Central just announced the nominations for their first ever Comedy Awards, which will air on the network April 10th. We know what you’re thinking: Just what the world needs, another awards show. But thanks to the inclusion of TV shows like It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Eastbound & Down and films like Cyrus and Tiny Furniture, it promises to be a much different (read: more interesting) crowd than we typically see at these kind of events. Plus, Stephen Colbert, Seth MacFarlane, Adam McKay, Conan O’Brien, Joan Rivers, Chris Rock, Jon Stewart, and Lily Tomlin were all on the nominating committee — so that’s got to count for something. Click through to view the list of nominees, and let us know your picks to win in the comments. … Read More
Yes, the glare from the flash is a little annoying, but isn’t this image fantastic?! Obviously, we have a few questions: 1. Did you know that Stephen’s middle name was Tyrone? 2. What exactly is the “Rowdy Club”? 3. How cute is Stephen’s favorite saying? (Although we’re not buying that sad loner routine for a… Read More
So, Comedy Central has a new logo. They were certainly due for a makeover, considering how dated their long-running Earth/buildings icon feels these days. But, as Deadline points out, it also looks a hell of a lot like the “copyright” symbol. According to the network’s creative director, Bob Salazar, the new look “is the irreverent wink of Comedy Central.” The logo is part of a larger redesign project geared toward updating the channel’s look and integrating well with social media. See how the new logo compares with the current one after the jump and tell us whether you think it was an improvement in the comments. … Read More
Remember when every brand was racing to get on Twitter? While its numbers continue to grow, for most companies, Tumblr remains an unexplored frontier. Some guesses at why: People are confused by what it is exactly. They’re not sure how to translate their product into a blog — let alone one that expands, rather than weakens, their brand. Communicating with your community can be intimidating. But in spite of the challenges, there are some people out there doing it right. After the jump, we’ll look at 10 big brands on Tumblr, and tell you whether or not we think they deserve a follow. … Read More
