Returning from Tczew over local roads


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

Driving on roads which nowadays are not used much as the motorways are in place. Malbork is the seat of the templars or Teutonic Knights in Poland, or Prussia, as it then was.

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 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.

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.

Huliganov’s Barcelona Experience #2 – “Ancient and Modern”


Original playout date: 3 April 2008
Duration: 9:36

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.

Jet Aim – blow job reworking


Original playout date: 1 April 2008
Duration: 3:36

Right, anyone who has ever left somewhere on a jet plane, and not known when he or she would be back again, has had an aim in mind, a destination where they intend the plane to land in, as opposed to simply staying up there for the rest of their lives. After all, the Denver song is “Leaving” not “Living” on a jet plane…

This is certainly what one hit wonders Jane Birkin and Serge “boy in blue” Gainsborough, both alledgedly KGB spies working in French cafe society under the guise of being non-Russians (English in the case of Jane and not Russian any more in the case of Ginzburg).

Their mission was to corrupt western society by composing a pop song so filthy that it was sure to cause the downfall of capitalism, instead of which, their “jet aim” song, full of explicit lyrics about sex devoid of emotion, along with heavy breathing reached number 2 in the UK charts, thereby contributing to the success of the system it had been intended to overthrow. The Vatican then denounced it in a public statement, and most Catholic countries banned it and even the Fontana record label that released it, remembering they too had a name which meant something in Italian, withdrew it from sale.

Since I was in a Jet recently in Zurich airport and was indeed aiming to get back to Poland, I used my footage which had a lack-lustre original commentary which I had done better since then on another plane ride, decided to do my own version of the Jet Aim song. In order to respect Catholic sensibilities (ok Zurich is more involved with Zwingli, possibly, but he had little to do with the zwingling zixties, mark my words)I decided to do a whistle-blowing job on it, instead of quoting the filthy words, which I will leave the viewers to fill in in their own minds, if they wish to.

Also, I was going to replace the heavy breathing parts byu Birkin with my own snoring, but decided not to in the end, because, these days, dis russky boy ain’t got no time to sleep.”

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.

Uncle Davey’s Herts Content, #11 “Around Water End”


Original playout date: 29 March 2008
Duration: 9:22

Some nice colour on this video again. We look at trout farms, watercress, beautifully composed village scenery and sheep in pasture. What’s not to love?

Don’t miss the images of Hertfordshire pudding stone (which is a real mineral by the way, not just a pleasantry) and the the English pub food in Gaddesden.
