By popular demand, Longlat and Merlin to be precise, the Huliganov Rants are back. I’m leaving too controversial topics alone this time, but the question of whether to watch a film before or after reading the book, if so be there be one, is a popular evergreen for ranting.
Thanks go also to Fat Steve of http://www.thebigcigarette.com (unfortunately Steve died some years ago and this site has been taken over by some weird Japanese stuff) fame for bringing to my notice the Italian version of “”Is Vic There?”” by Department S. Please go ahead and buy this from the Department Store so that I can be perceived as part of the music industry’s value chain and then maybe they’ll leave my creativity in peace.

Lucjan O. Poworocki’s latest “Extraordinary Rendition” takes us into the composition of that fractionary King of merrie England Henry the Eighth, an ode to his paramour and her penchant for using her brachial garments as an Ersatz hankerchief.
The second course features Huliganov, discovering how some of the food and drink outlets in frankfurt Airport are failing to tick all the boxes when it comes to TQM and governance issues…

Our time, it’s our time, as the Russian song says. This was indeed my 800th video ever, so this marks one third of the task of putting all the channel up onto Huliganov.TV
Hopefully the next third will be done a bit quicker, as this on its own has taken a long time. Eleven years and one month, to be precise. That was eleven years to upload three years’ worth of video, but maybe it will take just three years to upload eleven year’s worth of video? Let’s see! Sounds like a plan, though…

“New intro: I spent some time today mending the badly synched audio on this one, but as you cannot simply replace a video file with a better version of the same (if you could it would solve a lot of the problem this even talks about), I’ll have to put it up again, superseding this one, which I’m going to audio-disable myself, just out of irony.
The new version will be up later today.
Those who watched this rant already and got beyond the first few minutes of very odd jerky speech (thanks, Logitech!) will have had the dubious pleasure of watching me talking a good five seconds out and gradually getting back to normal over the course of a half hour.
So by way of repairing this message, which I consider important enough to have spent that much time on – and you might be surprised how much work it takes to clean up using Power Director after Logitech has completely chewed up some cammed audio – and also by way of giving an example of what I’m talking about towards the end, ie, redoing audio and uploading again as a ‘redux’, I’m going to do the ironic thing of “”audioswapping”” my own anti-copyright video! You’ll get the repaired one with re-synched audio in glorious black and white and audio rantycolor just two or three videos downstream in my channel from this one. Enjoy!
Old intro: A belated rant for December. What’s three months behind between friends? Please bear with the jerkiness in the start and the audio being out of sync. Some pirate was trying to sabotage my intellectual property at the moment I was saying it, probably…”
