The Rickshaw Rant


Original YT playout date: 22 June 2008
Duration: 58:14

This video   h a s   i t   a l l !

Well, so it should, bearing in mind it lasts nearly an hour! Still, I would be very pleased if my dear listeners would sit back and just enjoy the show. Get a coffee!

Here’s some of what awaits you:

* Relaxing scenes from Warsaw’s Szczesliwicki park

* One of the rantiest impromptu rants I ever did.

* A unique ride through the park and Ochota in Warsaw’s (I believe) only family rickshaw. (There are a handful of commercial rickshaws in Lazienkowski Park for tourists, but I never saw them elsewhere, and only for hire, whereas mine isn’t)

* Creative use of the new annotations function, including lyrics to some of the background music and supplementary info. These annotations can and will be added to during the active life of the video.

* And to cap it all a couple of interesting pieces of incidental music in the background which I made a few years ago, and have been meaning to incorporate for some time.

Enjoy!

BTW For people in Poland wanting to get a rickshaw like mine, the place to go is

If there is any interest in founding a rickshaw society for Poland or an international one, anywhere on the interenet, let me know. It seems the natural answer to the fuel crisis, but we need to lobby cities for wider paved areas, and for the space between bollards which prevent car access still to be broadly spaced enough to allow rickshaw access. Also they don’t go up kerbs very well, so kerbs need to be smoothed off at road crossings.

This is not exactly seasonal for the time I am uploading this to this blog, but I am simply putting my old films up here in order and right now I am 10 years and six months behind the original play out times. I hope that this figure will get lower and lower.

Holiday in Alsace #12/12 – The journey home


Original playout date: 8 December 2007
Duration: 13:17

Yes, we’ve reached the 12th and final part of the Alsace holiday saga, and I hope that you enjoy the road trip shots, the rare photo of my wife as a 19 year old, the impromptu Borat impersonation and the music of the UK Mr Big (NB not the same as the US group of the same name) and the full version of the song which has started each episode of this series, namely “Ne me quitte pas” by Brel, a song that launched many translations such as Shirley Bassey’s “if you go away” in the 1950s but none of them come in my opinion anywhere near the original, which must be in the top ten French language songs of all time.

Holiday in Alsace #11/12 – Gallery shots of Colmar and Keysersberg


Original playout date: 4 December 2007
Duration: 7:43

There was me thinking nobody is ever going to be bothered over property rights for a song form Armenia called Pnjlik Mnjlik by a gent called Arsen Grigoryan. How wrong I was, the video has got a claim but fair play to Arsen it plays on. He gets all the money because we all know only the music is important in a video, not the image, that’s why it’s called video, but OK. Better than the vandalism I suffered on many of my vids and then got called on copyright for the “free” tune anyway, a little later.
