Stumbled Upon Site of the Day…
August 3, 2009
“Flavorpill loves culture. We embrace the high-brow, low-brow, underground, mainstream, and everything in between — as long as it’s good. Every day, our editors comb through emails, websites, newspapers, and magazines in search of the must-see happenings in their cities — then they get off their computers and experience the events firsthand.”
What is FLAVORPILL?
“Flavorpill is an open network of culturally connected people. Our intuitive platform empowers Flavorpill’s eagle-eyed editors, savvy users, and the world’s best venues to share the most exciting and worthwhile events happening in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and London — with more cities on the way. Together, we foster and promote the arts, entertainment, and nightlife we love, embracing the underground, the mainstream, and everything in between.
THIS SITE IS GREAT! I just signed up to get my daily dose of Flavorpill Los Angeles. You can also submit your own artwork, or an event.
Here is a screen shot from Los Angeles Flavorpill:

- Murmur Study from Christopher Baker on Vimeo.
Above: “That waterfall of ticker tape is actually a live feed printout of Twitter and Facebook status updates; the thermal printers are part of Christopher Baker’s art installation, in collaboration with Márton András Juhász and the Kitchen Budapest, entitled Murmur Study. The project searches these sites for variations of “common emotional utterances” like argh, meh and oooo and collects them into piles, highlighting the way that all of our “personal” updates are archived by corporations without us really paying any attention to it.
You can check out the installation at the Weisman Art Museum in Minneapolis now through August 23. Note: All of the paper is collected for future projects or recycled.”
