It’s been a hot minute since I had a hobby that so engrossed me and ignited my passions as this. In central Japan, and in fact all over the country, tiny furniture aficionados are sitting in silence pretending to make food. And today I am one of them.
If you, like me when I first started, are like ‘woah how did they make that so small’, or alternatively thinking that you got bigger somehow, you’d be right. My heart grew three sizes the day I discovered RE-MENT and their range of doll’s house 1:18 scale furniture.
Unboxing, looking at, describing, reading about, and playing with RE-MENT doll’s furniture is like meditation. It requires an empty mind and a steady hand. It offers a particularly welcome respite from the consumerism, futurapitalism, existential shopaholism, and alt-right mystimilism of the twenty-first century rat race. It allows me to manage my cravings by making them smaller. Instead of coveting new beds, new chairs, fashionable throw pillows, curtains, or tupperware, I covet tiny beds, tiny stackable chairs, small plastic pillows, palm-sized squares of felt, and other choking hazards. By buying the latter, rather than the former, I have climbed (a lot like Batman when he began) from the prison of my own desires.
Welcome to The Christopher Bingham Comedy Initiative. This inaugural episode collects several of the most recent sketches, including How To Build Hype (extended), Pound of Flesh, And Bing Was His Name, and unseen material including voice acting audition tapes, and a messy Snapchat meltdown…

The Comedy Initiative is a sketch show that collects recent videos from my channel as a long-form show. I’ll be posting a few excerpts and bonus clips for a couple of weeks to promote this one, then the process will start again. New sketches starting next month and running through new year 2017 will eventually mighty morph and roll out into a second episode.
Granted early access to Google’s new ‘Apple killer’ smart phone, the Pixel, YouTuber Christopher Bingham was keen to unbox the new tech in a video. One feature in particular caught his attention…
Bing has been unusually quiet on social media following the upload of the video. His Snapchat (slomozovo) appears to have been hacked, and his Instagram and Facebook pages have uploaded cryptic videos like this:
