  • “In an American accent, she describes her routine, switching out a few details from the original. Instead of an ice pack over her eyes, she uses two cold spoons, a big jar of Vegemite is featured in the fridge (seemingly a shout-out to all Australians), and the Les Misérables poster is replaced, naturally, by Hamilton. ‘There is an idea of Margot Robbie, some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me. Only an entity, something illusory,’ she says as she peels the iconic clear, rubbery face mask off. ‘Maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable. I simply am not there.’” – Watch Margot Robbie in a Strange, Oddly Soothing American Psycho Spoof

  • “Whether you enjoy making your own miniature fake foods or not, we think it’s safe to say watching someone craft them is spellbinding. The tiny details, the silent patience, and the absurd proportions all combine to create a relaxing stew of motion — almost like meditation but with more craft resin!” – This video of someone making ramen miniatures is the most relaxing thing on YouTube
