Here’s a video of a guy putting a camera on a sushi conveyer belt. It’s wonderful. Every table has a little story!

Have eaten very well in Leeds in this week. Lunch at in Kirkgate Market on Tuesday was fantastic. A changing menu every week made with produce from the market, always a vegan option. Excellent food and friendly service, do go and check them out

Went hiking today, missed bus stop for the trailhead & next 1 was miles so stayed on right to the end and came back other way. An unintended 1-hour bus ride through Taiwan’s mountains, absolutely stunning, like most gorgeous bits of Laos or Philippines (but with better roads)

But then Japan, Korea & Taiwan aren’t developing countries; they’re also affluent, but have some of the latest times.

I think I have to share this with , even though it’s a bit sweary for a US audience. Funny and useful.

yeah, watching TV in a foreign language without subtitles is really hard even after many years. I still can’t watch Japanese TV/films without subtitles even after living there almost 5 years and being an okay Japanese speaker. I *can* watch without, but will miss details & nuance

He recently gave an interview about how he chooses not to learn Japanese despite living there for 25 years because he wants Japan to maintain the mysterious aura it has for him in his head. Yes, his Japan writing is deeply flawed - the execution is lovely, but his attitude stinks

That’s why Game of Thrones feels different now. A show that had been about the weight of the past became about the spectacle of the present. Characters with incredible depth and agency - all the more rope with which to hang themselves - became pieces on a giant war map. /20

It’s good for Indonesia, Thailand & Vietnam if US companies move their factories there after bailing on China. Vietnam is particularly well-placed to benefit

This ramen shop has a space for メンデルスゾーン, which is Mendelssohn, but also kinda like "men-deru-zone", or "zone where the noodles come out" 🤣

I took the old ferry from Naha via Ishigaki to Keelung on my first visit to Taiwan in 2008, a couple months before it stopped service. Would love to see it back now I’m living in Taipei
