Lucjan O. Powrocki’s Extraordinary Rendition of Schubert’s “An die Musik”


Original YT playout date: 23 August 2009
Duration: 3:19

“””Du holde Kunst! In wieviel grauen Stunden…”” wrote Schubert, the composer who gave his name to a popular sweet in powdered form, to his Muse known as Musik (sic). “”Thou gentle art, in how many grey hours in which the earths wild circle encompassed me, hast thou ignited warm love in my heart, and draw me into a better world…””

After this Poworocki draws himself into the world of fast food, making short work of one of Knorr’s products, reconstituted dried potato.”

RL 102-20 Basic Russian Grammar lesson 20 – Prepositions governing the Dative


Original YT playout date: 10 August 2009
Duration: 27:29

The 20th lesson in this series, the 30th Huliganov lesson in the Russian course, and we’re not even half way to what I have in mind. Sorry that this one is a bit disjointed, but there were interruptions and I had very little preparation time. Just wanted to go a step forward as there has been nothing for 3 months. Thanks for your patience.

Huliganov’s non-pretty, non-intense Japanese lesson


Original YT playout date: 5 July 2009
Duration: 6:13

Just because I don’t know anything about a subject doesn’t mean I can’t teach a lesson in it. After all, it never bothers quite a few people on YouTube!

On Facebook there is also a group called ‘Huliganov’s Lessons Really Work”” by Lafeen Maggio, which I will leave you to find your way to if you are on Facebook. Both of these places are good places for help.

Takahiro-san not only gave me a wonderful present of a fantastic set of classical writing implements from Japan, but also gave me the chance to learn and share with you the way to do Japanese calligraphy the traditional way.

I hope you enjoy this unique film in which this ancient and subtle art form is fully demonstrated.

Japanese friend in Warsaw


Original YT playout date: 24 February 2009
Duration: 24:49

Here is a day spent in the company of Takahiro Kajiura, an intelligent and cultured gentleman from the land of the flowering cherry.

I used for the background the song Ue o muite arukō, also known as Sukiyaki, by Kyu Sakamoto. This is a song I remembered from earliest childhood, which Takahiro-san helped me to identify.

上を向いて歩こう
Ue o muite arukō
I shall walk looking up

涙がこぼれないように
namida ga kobore nai yō ni
So that my tears won’t fall

思い出す春の日
Omoidasu haru no hi
Remembering Spring days

一人ぼっちの夜
Hitori bocchi no yoru
On this lonely night.

Non Te Scordar Di Me


Original YT playout date: 12 February 2009
Duration: 3:22

“This is the a premiere for two new characters which emerged as I was mucking around with a program called Cyberlink YouCam – Lucjan O Poworocki and then a Yorkshire comedian whom I shall probably dub Bernie Mansfield, or something like that.

I have no idea whether people will like this or not. I’ve done two of these for now: this and another similar one. Have to see how it goes from there. Anyone else would have done two separate films instead of a double bill in order to double the hits, but I’m a fool to myself, sometimes, I really am…”

Czy każdy, który chodzi do kościoła, jest zbawiony?


Original YT playout date: 25 January 2009
Duration: 24:48

Grzegorz Gontarczyk discusses in Polish the question of whether the people you meet in church are all saved or not. Is it enough to go to Church and take sacraments to be a Christian? Are there any Churches that have the monopoly on Christians, or whose membership can guarantee salvation?

He was in mid flow when I decided to turn the recorder on, and being a good speaker he didn’t flinch, but because of my absence of planning the sound is very low. It is listenable, though, if you turn the volume right up and evade background noise by using headphones, and this thought provoking piece is well worth a listen – provided you know a little Polish!

Pastor Grzegorz Gontarczyk omówi sprawę, czy wszyscy chodzący do Kościoła są zbawieni? Czy wystarczy chodzić do jakiegoś Kościoła, przyjąć jakieś sakramenty, wykonać rituały, słuchać kazania, czy więcej jest wymagane? Czy jest jakiś Kościół, ktory miałby monopoł zbawienia lub mógłby go zagwarantować?

Ze względu na spontanyczność mojej decyzji nagrywania, nie jest to niestety od początku i też jest bardzo cicho, ale warto podkręcić dzwięk i ewentualnie słuchać w słuchawkach, bo mówi Pastor o rzeczach, o których należałoby się być świadomym.”
