This week's links. Enjoy.

Fellini TV Commercials
Just stumbled across this and was instantly enthralled — TV commercials by the great Italian filmmaker Federico Fellini, created towards the end of his career. Wonderful, surreal and tiny films in themselves, they're also a lot of fun to watch.

Sad but true. And a little mind boggling.

From Baudelaire to Balzac to Proust, these 10 titles provide an insider's guide to a city of intrigue, romance and squalor.

The No-Diet Diet
Real Simple asked nearly two dozen food and nutrition experts for advice on the foods (and strategies) you need to feel healthier. Practical and humane suggestions.

How Do They?
Produced by the wonderful National Film Board of Canada (NFB), the How Do They? series of wordless videos reveals the mysteries behind everyday things — find out how they put the centres in chocolates, how a chain link fence is made, how paper is recycled and much more. Great to share with your kids. Via Kottke.

A lovely quick Jamie Oliver recipe — perfect supper for a chilly autumn weeknight.

I'm smitten with these great wide leg menswear-style tweedy slacks, from the Autumn/Winter 2013-14 Gabriele Colangelo collection — perfect for fall.
