The Dead Girl Haunts the Internet

139400550937540863_ezbjq5yq_b I found another groovy website, and had to share.

Flavorwire is a place on the internet where all the cool kids hang out. The site has been around for awhile and has developed a real sense of personality and style. The intelligent writers are on-topic and have an insider’s sixth sense of what appeals to the alternative pop culture audience. I really like their “BOOKS” section with such offbeat topics as 15 Amazing Book-Filled Bars Where We’d Like to Drink and Famous People’s Awesome Literary Tattoos.

The author of many of these book-related gems is the delightful and imaginative Emily Temple. Her latest post deals with the very important subject of 10 Delicious Literary Beers to Drink While Reading . I am soooo tempted to special order The Little Prince Farmhouse Table Beer (Jester King Craft Brewery), if only to own that collectable label on the bottle, and I would like to taste the Hops of Wrath (Dust Bowl Brewing Company), because who wouldn’t want to find out what a beer that is “brewed, bottled and cursed” tastes like, right?

PLUS, Flavorwire has an entire Hot Topic Section dedicated to David Bowie. Gotta love that. The Bowie section reports on all kinds of news related to the Thin White Duke, such as Tom Hawking’s Exclusive: Download “Diamanthunde” From John Vanderslice’s ‘Diamond Dogs’ Covers Album and recent musings over which one of Bowie’s costumed characterizations was the least successful.

Flavorwire isn’t new, but it is one of the few websites that keeps getting better and better with age. Ch-ch-check it out.
