Tania is Eight


Original YT playout date: 16 March 2010
Duration: 12:14

“We all celebrate
For Tania is eight
Her cake we all ate
And thought it was great
But Mimsy the Yorkie
And Pushkin the Cat
They thought it was dorky
And didn’t want that
They both prefer meat
Not things that are sweet
But at half Pushkin’s weight
Mimsy nearly got ate.”

The World According to Irina


Original YT playout date: 7 February 2010
Duration: 1:26:04

This was the footage on my sister-in-law’s mobile phone after she needed to clear it off after having it with her all the time and taking photos and films with it from time to time. It includes our family here in Warsaw, my wife’s and her family in a small farm in deepest Belarussia, and some footage from her final class at school in Warsaw and the fun she had with her classmates then and also on New Year’s with fireworks. In the main it’s Christmas 2008- Summer 2009 footage. I did a tiny bit of post-production and added some music on, but in the main it’s not my film, it’s the world according to Irina.

My New Exit Clip


 

Original YT playout date: 6 December 2008
Duration: 0.07

The reason for the OIOIOIO is that the domain OIOIOIO.com belongs to me. I picked it as there are not that many domain names 7 or fewer letters which can be flipped around backwards and forwards, up and down and always say the same thing.

I only had three exit clips or outroes for te whole of the YouTube collection. If I go on again post Coronavirus, then I think a new one for the new films would be in order.
