12-min video: tiny (tiny) Japanese apartments (YouTube: Tokyo Lens). My favourite part is the young woman reacting to all the other apartments.
hilarious essay: eating a 27-course dinner meal at Bros, Lecce’s only Michelin-starred restaurant (Everywhereis). ““We’ve infused these droplets with meat molecules,” the server explained, and left.”
17-min video: A Mile An Hour – “A different kind of marathon; running one lap an hour, for 24hrs, around my perfectly mile long block. The rest of the time I do as much as possible; making things, odd jobs, fixing stuff. It’s about running, doing, and thinking.” (YouTube: Beau Miles) I love that he decides to pick up rubbish as he runs. He makes a table, plays Scrabble, makes two paddles, sews, plants trees, mows the lawn (at night), makes bread and soup, repairs a bunch of things, chops wood, frames things, and goes off on tangents while drinking coffee and wine. 4 a.m.: “I feel like a ghost.”

2-min video: As Kyoto’s Eizan Railway passes through the famed momiji tunnel, the train slows down and, at night, with lights off, creates a surreal view. (Twitter: Spoon & Tamago). Surreal part starts about 20 seconds in.
