Viktor on the Radio with Oscar from Surbiton and Tommy Boyd


Original YT playout date: 20 December 2009
Duration: 34:33

We’re discussing the whole area of racism and nationalism – is it possible for a person ever to be completely free of a trace of racism and nationalism? Isn’t it a trait too deeply ingrained in our tribal characters? Is it always necessarily bad to have preconceptions about other races and nations? What about racial or nationalist jokes – can they ever be acceptable?

Radio from Playradio UK last spring featuring Oscar and Viktor on the Tommy Boyd Show. Please join the discussion either here or on Tommy Boyd’s new wordpress site, http://mrtommyboyd.wordpress.com

Huliganov’s Philadelphia, part 3 – Birth of a Nation


Original YT playout date: 20 December 2009
Duration: 43:53

We get the chance to look at the place where part of the British Empire was carved out and given to the people who lived in it, or at least the well-connected ones among them, on condition that they called themselves a different name. In the end all it was was the wrangling of one sort of elite against another sort, as we can see now, but at the time it seemed to people as though at last the ordinary man was able to assert his share of meaning. The sad thing is that to this day many ordinary British and American people don’t realise that essentially they are exactly the same nation, along with every other people that speaks the same language.

Race don’t enter into it, and I say that with an awarness that this is getting posted to huliganov.tv about the first anniversary of the death of that martyr to the excesses of white supremacy in the police force, George Floyd. Politics and structures don’t enter into it. Language is what defines our thought, and language is what makes us what we are. The people who speak one language are in essence all one nation.

English speaking people should never allow the world to classify us by whichever box the masons and royalists of history have made for us. We are the English, whether born in England and speaking with the accent I have, whether born in the US and never having been in England or had any ancestry from there, also those from Canada who are not from the French speaking part. They are the French, which is OK, there’s nothing wrong with that. You can live with them, you can play families with them, but you’ve got the French and the English there sharing a givernment structure and pretending to be a Nation, but it’s only artiificial.

Nations are a neologism anyway. In the past there were city states as well as Nations – nations won out and forced everyine to have a nationality, but it was just a way to put people in boxes and control them. We need to get back to language groups, and the way to be a citizen of the world is to learn a series of languages well enough to function well in other groups and effectively be part of them too.

There is no reason why we need to wait for some official to grant us a passport. We join the Russian nation by learning Russian well enough, even though very few people are awarded a Russian passport on that score. You have to be, like, Kim Philby or something.

So it’s time that we rejected Nation, and opened ourselves to the idea of Languation, Lation, Spation or whatever you wanna call it. That’s actually where we came from, and we may have been happier then.

Covid-19 is a Trial Run. Take Advantage of It.


So nice to see something that echoes my own thinking so exactly.

the coming tribulation

It has become clear to anyone, with half an eye open, that the Covid-19 pandemic is a trial run for something more oppressive. Many Christians believe the progressive oppression by power-grabbing politicians is a prelude to the subjugation and persecution by the Antichrist and his beast-kingdom. At the very least, it is clear that corrupt politicians are testing how far they can go, and how much they can get away with. We should, in every way possible, use these milder acts of tyranny as our own test run.

In the end-times persecution by the Antichrist, people will be restricted and controlled in how they are allowed to buy food. People will not be allowed to buy food unless they proclaim allegiance to the Antichrist, and receive the mark of the beast. Dictators, in most tyrannical grasps for power and control, also use the availability of food (as well as…

Huliganov’s Core ‘Ngrato


Original YT playout date: 17 December 2009
Duration: 5:02

Recorded some time back, only played out now, an extraordinary rendition of an old Italian number. But right now it seems to have gathered much more topicality. The ungrateful heart. He gave them umpteen channels of popular television, populist government, newspapers, a prime minister playboy with charm and charisma, not above teasing the German social democrats for being like concentration camp guards, and what does he get in return? From the ungrateful heart of the Italian nation, a disloyal lover, he gets a metal mock-up of the Milanese duomo smashed in his face. E nun c’e piense ‘cchiu.

If Cassetteboy can do it, why can’t I?


Original YT playout date: 12 December 2009
Duration: 4:41

This film is made with material from the BBC website’s Digital Revolution section. There is a share-alike license allowing any YouTuber to do a Cassetteboy wannabe attempt on a collection of interview footage and other programme collateral such as music and graphics and city shots. I don’t have time to make a very serious competition entry, but since it’s allowed I thought I’d have a little mischief with Stephen Fry, Marissa Mayer, Chad Hurley et al, here. The link to the site if you want to join in is at the end of the film.

Coming soon – ” History with Heath” on cable networks near you!


Original YT playout date: 12 December 2009
Duration: 1:41

I broke my current YT strike (occasioned by an unfair copyright strike on my channel – now the TV station concerned has fairly withdrawn their complaint, but I was still waiting for YT to remove the strike on my account, which did happen in due course) just to promote a friend of mine, Alan Heath, of alanheath channel fame, who had received a proposal to take on a TV programme in the same style, only more produced, than his existing work on channel http://www.youtube.com/alanheath.

Many of my subscribers also watch Alan’s work, and he was too modest to put an announcement about this on his own channel, but we’re all very excited about it. – Another youtuber breaks into TV, that has to be a good sign for all of us, even those who like me watch very little TV. It shows that we are becoming the new mainstream, and that the modest amateur producer really can achieve the recognition that once was the domain of people fortunate enough to know people in TV.”

Farewell Video of Extraordinary Mognitude


Original YT playout date: 14 November 2009
Duration: 1:09:34

“If you like long goodbyes, then this is the place for you. This one lasts well over an hour!

Lord Moggy, of nightshiftmoggy channel, as well as one of the stars of this channel, decided that his one and a half year visit to Europe has to come to an end. He has seen new things, made new acquaintances, learned a bit of the language, ate different foods – but it ain’t home. Like Peter Allen, he still calls Australia home, so off he flies.

You’ve seen him on this channel about fifteen to twenty times, maybe even more. This is his last interview before I took him to the airport, and he blows the whistle on certain unscrupulous practices he encountered recently, and his adventures in Ukraine, including getting deported.

This tells us some of the story of an extraordinary modern adventurer, the resilience of a man who lost everything, and then decided at last to follow a dream, even though everyone thought he was mad.

An account of someone who is at once a street moggy and a lord – a nearly penniless man … who has enriched us all.”

Maker and Redeemer


I have been working a bit on music of late, which is maybe putting it a bit too ambitiously given that I am not very musically educated and don’t even read the notes on the staves fluently, but I just felt like a play, and some extemporaneous music came out, which I expect to record when I can play it more faultlessly.

I wanted to basically fit the words to Glory be to Jesus which has the tune shown nicely here:


which I hasten to add is not mine as you may be able to tell when they skip one of my favorite hymn verses of all time.

What is sung there is called the tune Casnell by William Henry Monk (known for having composed the best-known tunes for “Abide with me”, “All things bright and beautiful” and many others). Whoever wrote that book they are playing from I know not, but as far as I can tell the correct name of that tune isn’t Casnell, at all, as I can’t find any other mentions of such a name. The correct information is that a German Lutheran composer called Friedrich Filitz composed it in 1847 for the tune “Wem in Leidenstagen”, which I cannot find any performances of. It is sometimes called Caswall in English, but still attributed to Filitz.

Edward Caswall in turn was the person who made the English words of Glory be to Jesus having translated it from Italian.

Here are the Italian words:

Viva! Viva! Gesù! che per mio bene
Tutto il sangue verso dalle sue vene.
Il sangue di Gesù fu la mia vita;
Benedetta la Sua bontà infinita.
Questo sangue in eterno sia lodato,
Che dall’ inferno il mondo ha riscattato.
Questo Sangue si fe’ nostra bevanda
E delle anime nostre la lavanda.
Il Sangue di Gesù placa lo sdegno
Del Genitore e ci conduce al Regno.
D’Abele il sangue gridava venedetta.
Quel di Gesù per noi perdono aspetta.
Se di tal Sangue è asperso il nostro cuore,
Fugge il Ministro del divin furore.
Se di Gesù si esalta il divin sangue,
Tripudia il ciel, trema l’abisso e langue.
Diciamo dunque insiem con energia
Al sangue di Gesù gloria si dia. Amen 

Ascr. St. Alphonsus Liguori (1696-1787).




I will be adding more to this later on to show the chorus I have added, both tune and words, but the refrain (i am planning for the refrain to develop over the course of the hymn but the culminating refrain, so to speak, will be:

Maker and Redeemer
Bathe us in Thy Blood!
Bring us home to Glory
Thou our Lord and God!

Watch this space for the whole thing and hopefully God willing a musical arrangement also.
