Thought for the Day #2 – with Rev. Timothy Crosbeau


Original YT playout date: 4 May 2008
Duration: 10:38

This time we talk about respect, and an appropriate approach to ourselves, other people in society, the animal kingdom and growing things also.

We deal with the offence of vegetarianism and the correct way to conduct cannibalism and food-hoarding in times of incumbent famine.

Huliganov’s Turkish Experience #21 – Journey home from Turkey


Original YT playout date: 4 May 2008
Duration: 14:08

The 21st and final part of Huliganov’s Turkish experience – final that is until I go back there in 2014, This rounds off the current series, and some folks from Turkey who watched all 21 episodes concluded that I came away with a better understanding of Turkey than most visitors they know about, which I took as a great compliment. I think Turkey’s a fantastic place. Much better than I thought it would be.

Before my first visit I did not want Turkey to join the EU because they might spoil it by introducing Islam. Now I’m more worried that the EU could actually ruin their successes, built originally by the massive statesman Ataturk. They have a secular society, which means that although Islam is the majority religion, most people in the big cities are fairly disinterested and the clerics and zealots don’t get to push everyone else around. They know how to deal with Islam in their society, we don’t. We give the Islamic pushers more room to manoeuvre than they get in Turkey, and the EU would probably end up telling Turkey to give more freedom to the religious conservatives, allowing them to wear their scarfs in Parliament, etc, as well as forcing them to stop preparing certain local delicacies which we think are not healthy, like sheeps’ intestines.

In the end one way or another, we may be destined never to be in the same Union, but we should be close friends with Turkey, and allow them the best trade and mobility relations with our countries.”

Huliganov sings “Somewhere only we know”


Original YT playout date: 3 May 2018
Duration: 12:19

“The nutty Russian professor deconstructs the poesy of the famous Keane song and then murders it for good measure. Enjoy!

Thought for the Day by Rev Timothy Crosbeau


Original YT playout date: 12 April 2008
Duration: 2:38

This is the first in a new series by Rev Timothy Crosbeau, an influential cleric with aspirations to become an Archbishop one day. Today he teaches us a valuable lesson about tolerance, and the one exception to the rule of needing to be tolerant to others. Basically there’s nothing so sinful or heinous that we cannot include the people who do it and plan to keep doing it into the clergy, except for failure to be adequately tolerant of me.  (Next time, Rev Crosbeau will give us his considerations on the virtue of broadmindedness).

A Night in Wrocław


Original YT playout date: 12 April 2008
Duration: 15:48

“Which is pretty much what it says it is. This is a bit different because I’m still getting used to the new editing software I bought. The images are too dark, but I don’t get a lot of leeway there – I film when I’ve got free time, and that usually tends to be the evening hours.

Anyway, enjoy the atmosphere of this stroll, meal and also drive in night-time Wroclaw.”

Nice to see the same faces and hear the music and taste the food. I hope to go there again one day. I wonder if the same guys will be there.
