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.”

Original playout date: 4 April 2008
Duration: 9:20

This starts the third of my three trips in 2008 to Turkey, which makes up this series, so in a sense I am in the home straight. On this occasion I was accompanied by my boss and good friend Adam, who is keeping quiet during the filming.

We’re looking at the way architecture in Barcelona is a fusion of older and more modern elements. Maybe not exactly ancient, but quite older stuff next to things from more recent decades.

Huli and Moggy deconstructing Rod Stewart


Original playout date: 30 March 2008
Duration: 29:10

Moggy (channel name was “lordmoggy” but he got banned) finally made it to Poland. Those of you who have been following the saga of his preparations on his channel might be wondering if he ever made it or not, but he did.

So here is an off-the-cuff Huliganov and Moggy collaboration made spontaneously on the back of today’s news that Rod Stewart is turning his back on the UK for LA.

Joe Becker also gets an honorable mention (that’s “Polish Joe” or “”Johio”” for the listeners of playradiouk.com)

Just a little point for travellers


Original playout date: 30 March 2008
Duration: 4:04

A mobile Hulirant encouraging people to repect the CITES convention and not buy rare species or things made from them while travelling. You can see the items confiscated in Warsaw airport, in a special “gablotta” as the term of art is, dedicated to making travellers wise up and stop taking elephants’ feet.

Huliganov’s Barcelona Experience #2 – “Arrival in Barcelona”


Original playout date: 30 March 2008
Duration: 16:26

Flying over the Mediterranean to Barcelona airport. Unsually, the arrival video in this Barcelona series is the second not the first as I made an initial one, largely about smoking being for morons, in the first part of the travel there. It is interesting how travel to Barcelona from Warsaw took practically all day as there was no direct flight at that time.

Huliganov’s Turkish Experience #16 – Eating in Kutahya


Original playout date: 29 March 2008
Duration: 5:33

Scenes from two fine meals, incorporating perfect Turkish hospitality, fine food, fine ceramic and football with Fenerbahce.

Black carrot juice with spices – a fine drink they should sell over here too. It sounds like I am saying “blackcurrant juice” but it is actually black carrots. Checking this out, I note that what this is is not a separate species, just the purple form which is actually the way they looked as they came into Europe in the tenth Century AD, along the silk road, while the orange version we know and love was only emerging in Afghanistan at around that time, and arrived some time later.

Carrots are one vegetable with quite interesting comparative etymologies, having clumps of similar words for them in similar languages, but these don’t really resemble one another. I hope to enlarge on that one day in a series of etymological articles.
