It’s autumn in the northern hemisphere, so here are some of my eternal autumn stations - with youtube links for easier access.

Watch: Come And See

A movie by Elem Klimov from 1985. Masterpiece and today as actual as ever. There are lots of writings and documents about it, and I almost envy everyone who sees it for the first time. Something for the better world and for me the plate to go to every autumn.

Watch: The Story

This is a short film by Homer Groening from 1969, starring his children Maggie, Lisa, and Matt (who would go on to create The Simpsons). Still a tiny reminder to keep wondering.

Read: Open Culture

It’s a classic, but I feel that it’s good to keep reminding that internet could be a good place. Just get lost and become your better self.
