If there’s one thing Huliganov likes it’s a good rant now and again.

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.”

This is actually the Eighth Hulirant. I haven’t been counting them over to this blog but you can see the earlier ones by looking at the side bar with the detailed navigation – and find “Hulirants”. They are all being collected there.

True Pedantry


Original playout date: 26 February 2008
Duration: 22:12

A Huliganov Rant (done now but ostensibly for October 2007, as I missed that month).

What’s this all about? Well, right now, in the UK there are a few books and broadcasts going on about the so-called walking diet or the 10,000 steps diet, all of which revolves around the use of a pedometer, which is like a mechanism clipped onto the belt that clicks a counter forward every time it moves up and down. However, there is a problem with this whole concept, as I show in the rant.

Huliganov’s Rant for February – On UK Political Correctness


Original playout date: 6 February 2008
Duration: 2:13

Once again, Huli is not up to date with the rant. First off Huli points out that this is two years into his channel, and this is at the time of uploading here to Huliganov TV already 12 and a half years which is like one eighth of a century.

Huliganov’s Free Spee..


Original playout date: 18 November 2007
Duration: 4:22

The attempt on Benazir Bhutto’s life prompts a rant from Huliganov which you could get away with in 2007 but could never get away with in 2017, in this era of political correctness and special pleading for the religion of peace. Thankfully in 2007 we have complete freedom to express opionions, but there are still some opponents better left untouched. Therefore, on legal adice, Huli’s enthusiastic endorsement of pulling lawyers’ hair has been removed.

Original playout date: 13 November 2007
Duration: 32:03

Huliganov talking in another monthly rant, of the sort we did for a short while, this time for November, and November is of course the month for remembering, be it All Souls Day, Bonfire Night or Thanksgiving.

Huliganov rants on keyboard hygiene and sushi bars


Original playout date: 14 September 2007
Duration: 13:21

It mentions http://www.huliganov.com but as you will know by being here, in the end I opted to develop more on Huliganov.TV as it is a bit like a TV channel with the preponderance of video that is on here.

Huli has a word or too for those concerned with the current Russian miltary build-up.

Huliganov’s “Doom and Gloom”


Original playout date: 7 August 2007
Duration: 2:16

Huliganov begins by quoting Keats’ Ode to Autumn in a lovely Autumn scene, but there’s a twist. It’s mid summer, and the chestnut tree shows both the signs of Autumn and the signs of Spring.

Huliganov rants on house prices and the childfree “decision”


Original playout date: 31 July 2007
Duration: 15:16

I came in for a fair degree of criticism for this. Don’t care about that. It is quite a high dislike to like ratio, which for my demographic is quite high.

Plastic Pollution in our Oceans


Playout date: 31 May 2007
Duration: 8:50

People don’t put little pieces of plastic into the sea deliberately, but it gets their anyway, and gets mixed up with the planktons and ending up in the food chain, reducing the photosynthesis of sea algae, etc, and they never biodegrade.

Letter of Introduction


Playout date: 9 May 2007
Duration: 9:00

This was done still in the early days with still less than 200 films and under 300 subbers, asking for more, but being utterly perplexed by a letter addressing me as “my gentleman”.
