What do the Jewish Feasts of Leviticus 23 really mean? (Polish and German)


Pastor Harmut Ising has sent me a bit more material to read about this film and has kindly allowed me to share it freely.

See the following pdfs. They are great studies of prophesy in the Bible, in German.

Count von Weytzentrenner’s Oktoberfest appeal to North Korea


Playout date: 7 October 2006
Camera: Logitech Webcam
Post Production: WMM
Location: Home
Other people featured: My wife
Genre: Comedy
Music used: A little “Lano Moje” in the intro
Languages used: English, German
Animals featured: None

Oktoberfest is, for Germans, one of the most important dates in the Christian calendar, but while drinkning copious amounts of alcohol and swaying from side to side, spare a thought for the North Koreans, and  their leader King John the second, who needs to give up his weapons testing. Count Sproey von Weytzentrenner has no truck with Communists, and is sure that King John of Korea feels likewise, and sings him “Born Free” in a hamster’s voice, accompanied on the beerstein.

Watching this I can’t help feeling a lot of reminiscence as it was only 5 years ago but still my wife was able to walk freely around the home without crutches. How fine she looks in this video.

The Mystery of Gothic and why I left How-To-Learn-Any-Language.com


Guido Westerwelle

Guido Westerwelle - a politician whose remarks are only to be discussed in abtraction from politics, on how-to-learn-any-language.com!

I am repeating here a few comments I made about the Gothic Language on How-To-Learn-Any-Language forum some time back. As I am now not posting there owing to their heavy-handed moderation policy ( I was censured for discussing politics in a thread about why a certain German politician – Guido Westerwelle the Foreign Minister no less, refused to speak German at an international press conference because it happened to be held in Germany.

I am looking forward to the Eurovision Song Contest this year – instead of being done in French and English as per the tradition, as Lena won it for Germany last year (with a song that has not even been given any lyrics in German and is sung in Essex English by someone trying to impersonate Lily Allen but who is at any rate a good deal hotter than Lily, and that of course is what the Eurovision is all about these days…) it will have to be held entirely in German to appease Westerwelle’s nationalist complexes!

Anyway, it was for taking an anti-Westerwelle line that I got censured in HTLAL. I warned that if moderated I would simply leave and stop contributing and at that the moderator called my bluff and pulled the whole thread! In case anyone thinks that it means that I am spitting my dummy out and walking away like a big kid, let me explain the following points:

1. I have very limited time to post and type on the internet. Thankfully I have the pleasure and privilege of a small following of people who like to read my things or watch or listen to my multimedia outputs, and so I have the impetus always to continue. Even on How-To-Learn-Any-Language.com I enjoyed the privelege of popularity – not that many posters have received over 1,5 times the votes compared to the posts they have made. Many people have more than the 139 votes I received, but these are folk who usually have hundreds of posts and not just 87.  If it were not for the fact that I know many people like to follow what I do, at some times of year it would all stop as I get just too busy.

Count von Weytzentrenner sings “Was ein Wunderbar Welt”



Production date: 18 June 2006
Playout date: 18/6/2006
Camera: Logitech webcam
Post Production: Windows Movie Maker with effects
Location: Home.

He’s back. The Count Sproey von Weytzentrenner with his unmitigated gloating over the success of Germany in the first part of World Cup 2006. I can’t believe that is already four years ago, I think the Count may be due for an new airing during this year’s World Cup in South Africa. Not only is he jingoistic about Germany, in football – also, he claims that Louis Armstrong is originally a German, and that the original of the song “What A Wonderful World” is in German.

In the German original, the singer hearing the babies cry, and watching them grow, takes comfort in the knowledge that one day he will be able to employ them in his factory.

Halt!!! Verboten!!!


Production date: May 2006
Playout date: 15/6/2006
Camera: Fuji Finepix
Post Production: Windows Movie Maker
Location: Kaltenkirchen

When I look back at this now, I can’t believe we had been in Copenhagen and were on our way back and we popped into Kaltenkirchen just to see a friend, Andreas, and I was just filming on the offchance as I really wasn’t used to filming back then so it simply hadn’t been entering my head. I had very little time on my memory card back then anyway. I just had no idea that there could be any interest in these walkabout films.

It’s interesting that back in 2006 when most people still hadn’t heard of YT, getting a camera out and filming anything was something bound to evoke comment, as it did from these kids, who tried to provoke me by saying it was forbidden to photograph the town’s fountain. I kidded them back saying that “verboten” is a word much beloved of Germans, which is actually not necessarily the case, but since they provoked first, I reckoned I was not too mean to be trolling them a bit.
