The Ministry of Justice is already investigating Huliganov’s sharp business practices – but where’s the justice when kids fresh from college seem to have inside knowledge about the venture capital game? Find out more on http://vcr-gra.pl – 2010 is the pilot year, so right now you need to be a Polish speaker to play, but watch this space…

(S)lower Silesia


Original YT playout date: 3 April 2010
Duration: 15:16

A drive and a chat, in the area of Lower Silesia. I go by the whim of the GPS in my phone, but it seems it makes the journey slower than it would have been if I’d picked the route myself on a map!

This is border country!


Original YT playout date: 3 April 2010
Duration: 6:36

“There’s a long border between Poland and the Czech Republic, winding its way over hills and along rivers, but as far as roads negotiable by cars is concerned, until the two countries entered Schengen a couple of years ago, they had manned check points. Now these are disused and there is no-one there to look at your documents, if you even have them. Their old booth has become a dumping ground for used food packaging, and nobody cleans it up. The Poles spent money building a nice road right up to the border, but the Czechs, with their almost 50% more GDP per head, simply allowed a dirt track to remain from the border. They simply do not care what the “”visit card”” of their coutry looks like, not to Poles anyway, (in fact it seems to me that in comparison with Poles, who always concern themselves with their international reputation, Czechs are singularly unruffled by what anyone – in their country or outside it – thinks of them) and they seem to have no desire to encourage the Poles to venture into their country very far, even though the cheaper prices at restaurants might be quite tempting, and the existence of a fine swimming pool not far off on the Czech side, which I heard about, but didn’t see. It looks as if they are in no major hurry to go out of their way to attract their Polish neighbours in for a cup of coffee. So Schengen may be in force, and you can cross that boundary without any checks if you feel like it, but they certainly aren’t making the free movement across it all that inviting right now on the Czech side.

Despite the dereliction of the duty area, there is a certain open beauty about the side. It looks quite wild and windswept under the marbled, part-melted snow. It is, of course, under agricultural usage, and food or biomass is being produced on all parts of it.”

Drive, Drove, driven, drivel – or “Road trip meets linguistic meandering”


Original YT playout date: 2 April 2010
Duration: 29:10

Driving from the Amber Hotel through Olesnice towards Namyslow I start to talk about why Polish language has more exotic elements in it, more aspects usually more associated with oriental languages, than Russian has. This is really developing a thesis of mine that Poland has an oriental culture.

Learners of Slavic languages will love this one, as will those of you who use my videos to go to sleep, as some have told me…

Earth Hour in Warsaw


Tuesday, October 12, 2021

Original YT playout date: 27 March 2010
Duration: 15:54

The ordinary inhabitants of Warsaw vote with their light switches to show what they think about how our human activity can influence climate variability.

The UN, that diabolical organisation, has started these yearly events encouraging the people to put their lights out at a specific strategic time around the Spring Equinox every year.

I’m just wondering whether all this isn’t just a way of getting people, unknowingly, to assist in an act of mass witchcraft. As an act of obeisance towards “”Gaia””, the Earth mother deity of the pagans, people in their own homes dim their lights at the culmination of one of the most powerful witches’ sabbaths of the year, lending their tacit support to the atrocious spells being worked out against God’s people and God’s plans by the new age pagans.

Think twice before doing anything these people recommend you to do, from vaccinating your children to eating certain foods according to some “”codex”” they’ve drafted, to even switching off lights at certain times. They have their own beastly religion which they are trying to force on the world, on the people who rightly belong to Jesus Christ.

An Evening with Krzysztof Orlowski, part 1 of 2


Original YT playout date: 27 March 2010
Duration: 14:14

Much travelled Silesian musician Krzysztof Orlowski, whose group and whose own compositions you can find on https://annapietrzak.com/gitana-electric-eclectic-2/ is a gentleman I met in this place, Hotel Amber at Olesnica, one year ago. I filmed his concert at the restaurant and put it on youtube, it was appreciated by the viewers and also Krzysztof himself saw it, and got in contact with me.

These days he’s not playing at Amber so regularly, but was kind enough to come and join me for one evening and played a few of his fine medleys. In this part, we can hear his medley of Piaf’s “”Vie en Rose”” with Burt Bacharach’s “”I’ll never fall in love again””, as well as the Girl from Ipanema performed with impeccable style.

Dangerous Parking


Original YT playout date: 27 March 2010
Duration: 2:07

How sensible is it to plonk your van down and leave it just where the traffic is coming off the level crossing? The whole situation could easily get gridlocked if two of these idiots decided to do the same thiing on either side of the crossing – and the result could be that vehicles get trapped on the tracks when the next train somes. How can someone not see that? Anyway, thankfully the drivers on the other side of the road showed more foresight, and let us pass, therefore avoiding the risk of such a gridlock on the railway track. It just goes to show the sort of people we’re sharing planet earth with.

Huliganov’s New Rants – #1 Book or Film


Original YT playout date: 25 March 2010
Duration: 28:05

By popular demand, Longlat and Merlin to be precise, the Huliganov Rants are back. I’m leaving too controversial topics alone this time, but the question of whether to watch a film before or after reading the book, if so be there be one, is a popular evergreen for ranting.

Thanks go also to Fat Steve of http://www.thebigcigarette.com (unfortunately Steve died some years ago and this site has been taken over by some weird Japanese stuff) fame for bringing to my notice the Italian version of “”Is Vic There?”” by Department S. Please go ahead and buy this from the Department Store so that I can be perceived as part of the music industry’s value chain and then maybe they’ll leave my creativity in peace.
