Huliganov’s Finnish Experience #2 – Going up country to Imatra


Original playout date: 21 December 2007
Duration: 17:52

Quite disorienting to deal with a language I completely don’t know.

Finnishing School continues with a trip up country. It’s unavoidably dark on the journey as Finland doesn’t get many hours of daylight in the winter, but bear with me – it lightens up in the second half, and I recreate the effect of Sibelius Finlandia being played over speakers in Imatra when they let the waters come crashing over the dam. Unfortunately that only happens at Christmas and in the summer season, so I didn’t get to see one of Finland’s most vaunted spectacles, but in winter the site of it also has something to offer, as you will see the icicle formations hanging off the rocks, and the famous Valtionshotelli of Imatra set off in the snow.

Quote of the clip: “Imatra, a bit like Sumatra, but a lot colder”. Read the rest of this entry

“I think you’ll quite like this concept. All of these clips were taken before, during or after actual business meetings I had in Warsaw in the late Summer of 2007.

Huliganov’s Finnish Experience #1 – Arrivalli


Original playout date: 18 December 2007
Duration: 9:50

Yes, indeed. It’s the long awaited Finland trip series kicking off. As you can tell the mike on my new camera is a big let down and I’m still learning how to shoot with it, but look at the quality of some of the pictures in the end and you’ll see it’s not like I threw my money entirely away on that Lumix Panasonic

Minsk, Belarus


Original playout date: 17 December 2007
Duration: 2:57

In 2004, Belarus, in one of its first Eurovision appearences, decided to sing in English, but I defy anyone to understand any sentient message in the entire performance. Quiet a catchy tune, though. It didn’t make it to the final and in fact Belarus rarley do, although one of their boys has won it for Norway. They have more luck with the Children’s ESC.

When I recorded this piece, which was an idea to put a bit of Elvis into the Roger Whittaker number, I weighed I think my record ever weight of 140 kgs. By the time I uploaded it I was about 130 kgs and looking a little slimmer. Treat this as the “before” photograph to compare with later videos…
