The Century of the Self: A 4-part BBC documentary from 2002 on how psychoanalysis (focusing a lot on Freud) has been used to control the masses (great for government) by engineering our desire for mass consumption (great for corporations too). I did a search and looks like this wasn't posted yet.

Samurai Gourmet on Netflix. Based on a comic by taniguchi. It's about a newly retired man who has to learn what to do with his time. He decides to visit different restaurants in his town. It's quite soothing and poetic.

DiResta's channel. It's mostly DIY with a focus on machining. Recycle/maker ethics. Many creative projects.

Not sure if this has been posted. Self-sufficient Renaissance man tries to build a fusion reactor in his home while running a technology website to help people build their own stuff. “This is what I do for fun and giggles. [...] It’s me against the world.” He also lights his cigarettes with a torch. Notice the forum theme.

“I’m a non-violent happy guy who likes to be left alone.”

Great inspiration.
