The Perfect Episode in the Time of Quarantine →

I love everything about this episode. The fact that the team could get paid in an economically difficult time. The emotional relevance of the isolation & hardship of social distancing. The fact that this was pulled together — from concept to final production — in under three weeks, all shot on iPhones.

And then the ending just leaves you with a big fat smile on your face, to remind you than in tough times like this, we can get through it together with creativity.

As a keto dieter (for part of the year, lol), I was always confused by how the Japanese stay so skinny when they eat rice and noodles every day. After visiting Japan, I could see why:

  1. Everyone walks everywhere, even old people.
  2. Tipping is not a thing, which encourages people to eat fresh food at sit-down restaurants.
  3. Eating fresh food every day — even if it's carbs — will beat any diet that consists of processed food and refined sugars.

I could see myself living in Japan, happily eating rice every day, and still maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
