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.”

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

Just for a little humorous irony I placed the map marker for this one on the top of the statue of Eros in Piccadilly in London!”

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.”

Huliganov’s Turkish Experience #20 – “Back to Cicek Pasaji”


Original YT playout date: 7 April 2008

If a restaurant has been good, I like to go there again. So, more great live music and food shots, as well as a visit to the celebrated Koska shop, the home of Turkish Delight!

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.

Huliganov’s Barcelona Experience #4 – Una Comida Memorablisima


Original YT playout date: 6 April 2008
Duration: 10:08

A Most Memorable Meal was something I recently was treated to by business partners in Barcelona. You can see it, unfortunately I can’t pass on the taste or the smell of it but suffice it to say it was perfect.

For all I know there may be a whole lot more such restaurants in Barcelona, but I can wholly recommend this one, Restaurante La Dama on Avinguyda Diagonal.

NTTBS 23rd March Test Post (Purple language warning)


Original (YT) playout date: 9 April 2008, (on Radio 23 March 2008)
Duration: 3:00:09

“Not The Tommy Boyd Show from Play Two UK.
***PURPLE LANGUAGE WARNING***
If you are easily offended, or even offendable at all, then better not to watch this series of videos. It is for aficionados of the more unbridled style of discourse, and not for young or impressionable ears.

Those of you who know me from the eclectic group of fans of the talk radio legend Tommy Boyd may be aware from the shrine posts that in response to Stu’s request I agreed to take on the task of youtubecasting the show feeds, which used to be done, and done extremely well, on the channel wwwplayradioukdotcom here on YouTube. Since December, that channel’s owner has not (either wanted to or been able to, I don’t know, but either way he hasn’t) continued. That was a channel entirely dedicated to the show, whereas as agreed in the Tommy Boyd forum my screenings will be on my channel, which has very mixed forms of films on it already and a fairly varied subscriber base. This means I can probably get more exposure for this show than the dedicated channel could, but on the other hand I want to squeeze each show onto a single film, so as not to flood this channel with items which may not be exactly what the bulk of subscribers signed up for.

Hence I purchased PowerDirector 6.0, and this is my very first attempt with it. All I wanted to do is test whether I could actually do it, that is get a three hour feed plus audio off two studio cameras onto a single clip on this channel. If you’re reading this, it worked.

I am aware that there are faults in this test post. First, I’ve managed to squeeze the audio too far. It’s what you might call “”AM”” rather than “”FM”” quality. Actually, make that “”SW””. I also did the picture in picture too small, and the facial expressions of Arron and Jo can’t be seen properly. I also did not do any editing or effects on this, as all it is is a test run, but I want to put it up anyway to let the fans of the show know that it’s on its way, and to get some feedback.

To participate in this show live go to http://stuandmatt.servebeer.com from 7 to 11 pm UK time on Sunday nights.”

45:47 is Viktor Huliganov’s appearance. 1:12:23 is Riley Martins famous clip.

Quote of the clip: “Life’s gonna suck when you grow up”

You Tube – The End Of Civilization As We Know It (yeah right)


Original playout date: 7 April 2008
Duration: 36:33

“This is the belated rant for December, although, despite a tiny amount of Christmas related talk at the beginning, most of this rant refers to an article in the online Telegraph dated 7 April 2008, which is when I made the rant.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2008/04/07/nweb107.xml
Some sense-starved junkalist, hiding behind the weasel phrase “”experts have warned””, presumes today to describe our use of the available bandwidth as less valid than his own use, for newspaper articles. I contend that anyone can write – at least at the stylistic level of his article, give or take a few spelling mistakes – whereas not everyone can produce entertaining and informative online video content. Therefore I go on to challenge the author of that article to produce his own video response to my rant, if he thinks that YouTube is such a bad idea, let him tell it to us face-to-face, over the camera.

On the way I give advice to town planners about traffic management in cities, and give a few pointers, which, if only listened to by the right ears, could greatly improve the quality of life for millions living in cities whose commuting plight today is largely caused by the control-freak complexes of minor government employees, and their inability to let free-market philosophy impact on road design.”
