It’s St David’s Day, March 1, again, and as every year Viktor Huliganov reaches out to the Welsh linguation with an acapulco song in Welsh, this time the famous Welsh hymn “Dyma Gariad Fel Y Moroedd” – Here is love, vast as the ocean. Bendygedig!

Metodologia Gold List – Pochodzenie i Dlaczego To Dziala


Original YT playout date: 5 February 2010
Duration: 39:06

Tu po raz pierwszy mamy cos w języku polskim o Goldliscie. Kuba przyszedł z swoja babcia i wyjaśniałem mu w jaki sposób może używać Goldlisting, aby nadrabiać swój angielski. Niedawno jego poprzednia szkolą uległa zamknięciu przez miasto, wiec musiał zmienić szkole. Tam studiowal niemiecki, a tu maja tylko angielski, wiec musi szybko nadrobić. Czy metoda ta jest w stanie pomoc w tej sytuacji? Powinna być idealna.

Niestety mamy tu tylko pierwsze 40 minut lekcji która trwała 2 godziny, bo odcięło się po tym czasie (mój syn ciągłe tam majstrował podczas filmowania) ale dla moich widzów polskojęzycznych, którzy licznie prosili cos o metodologii po polsku po moim występie w TVNie, to już jest cos, wiec dziękujemy mocnie Kubie i jego babci za zgodę filmowania lekcji. Przy kolejnej okazji będę filmował dalszy ciąg wyjaśnienia.

上を向いて歩こう


 

Original YT playout date: 3 February 2010
Duration: 2:23

上を向いて歩こう has never been so extraordinarily renditionated. Kyu Sakamoto was a brilliant and soulful performer of this piece, but that won’t stop anyone else getting their hands on it and making vastly inferior versions, like this one here by Lucjan O’ Poworocki. If you think this is sacriledge, you should just look at what Taste of Honey did to it!

Assistance requested by Huliganov to help to spy out the Russian…


Thursday, August 5, 2021

Original YT playout date: 1 February 2010
Duration: 9:57

…text to the much-quoted (but only ever in English) poem “Lying To The Young Is Wrong” which *purports* to be translation of a poem by atheist partyline-hugger survive-all-political-weathers veteran bard Yevgeniy Yevtushenko, the man of whom it was said that his ego could shatter glass at twenty paces. But even this doyen of self-promotion does not display the Russian version of this famous verse on his website, nor anywhere for that matter. Was it just my overlooking the obvious, or has he censored it out? Or has he simply lost it? Help Huliganov find the putative original of this highly dubious piece of poetry, and maybe if you like do a video response reading it, and Huli will be most grateful, and will give you a mention on the next big Russian lesson video. Update: Thanks to Gunsandbullhorns and also Chesneywormbot, I managed to get this far:

Не надо говорить неправду детям,

Не надо их в неправде убеждать,

Не надо уверять их, что на свете

Лишь тишь да гладь да божья благодать.

Не надо по желанью своему

Морочить их несбыточными снами.

Учить не надо верить их тому,

Чему уже давно не верим сами.

Солгавший детям детство обезлюдит,

Подсунет им бесчестье, словно честь.

Пусть видят же не только то, что будет,

Пусть видят, ясно видят то, что есть.

Сладинка лжи – отрава в манной каше.

Писк лживый не прощайте у кутят.

И нас потом воспитанники наши

За то, что мы прощали, – не простят.

The Star Child – Сказка о Звездном Мальчике


Original YT playout date: 3 January 2010
Duration: 2:361

From the old soviet children’s film archives comes (thanks to my wife’s Belarus connexions) this well-known film based on a story by Oscar Wilde – the Star Child who drove away his mother, and then came to realise the enormity of what he had done. This is the whole film, in two parts of roughly equal length. Happy Russian Christmas! С Рождеством! (I put it up for Russian Christmas in January, a tradition time of year when this used to be televised).

Russian humour – Stairwells and Sleeper Carriages…


Original YT playout date: 24 December 2009
Duration: 1:45

These two short sketches from a Russian production company have been shown quite a bit in YouTube but never yet have they been adequately subtitled for a wider audience. As part of my quest to help people gain an understanding of the Russia psyche and Russian humour, here is a version subtitled by me, for your viewing pleasure.

To see much more of this sort of thing, go to this chap’s channel – http://www.youtube.com/user/bahitkilibaev. As far as I know he owns the stuff, but I just wanted to give it a more adequate translation and thus broaden the audience for a couple of sketches. He has several hundred sketches, so Russian learners looking for things a bit more ribald (and I have had numerous requests for this) will find plenty of material on his channel.

Huliganov’s Core ‘Ngrato


Original YT playout date: 17 December 2009
Duration: 5:02

Recorded some time back, only played out now, an extraordinary rendition of an old Italian number. But right now it seems to have gathered much more topicality. The ungrateful heart. He gave them umpteen channels of popular television, populist government, newspapers, a prime minister playboy with charm and charisma, not above teasing the German social democrats for being like concentration camp guards, and what does he get in return? From the ungrateful heart of the Italian nation, a disloyal lover, he gets a metal mock-up of the Milanese duomo smashed in his face. E nun c’e piense ‘cchiu.

Когда Только Любовь Нам Нужна


Original YT playout date: 26 September 2009
Duration: 3:58

Russian version of “When All We Need Is Love” by Mark Maysey. Translated and performed by Viktor D. Huliganov.

This song featured recently in Prague Vlog # 11, and Mark Maysey said he liked it and asked whether I would make a separate video with some photos about love and war. Therefore, especially for you, Mark, here it is.

Not enough people know this song, and other of Mark Maysey’s original songs. I have only seen them here on YouTube and his subscribership deserves to be much bigger. However, those who do hear these songs find that they sink in very deep, and stay with the listener not only for a short time, but for much longer, improving the soul.

Inauguration!


Original YT playout date: 12 September 2009
Duration: 11:45

You wanna know what ceremony there is in Poland when kids go to school at the start of a new year? This is the inauguration of a new year of school. I don’t remember any pomp and circumstance like this when I were a lad in England. We didn’t have school songs, school flags, we didn’t sing the national anthem, and take oaths, and swear lifelong allegiance to the country. We did in the scouts of course, but not at school. Maybe we should have. But from my eyes, all this is entirely unfamiliar. Maybe the American viewers will recognise it more. You’ll see Sophie in there enjoying herself with her classmates, and the footage is from about two years ago. (The September 2008 at the beginning should say 2007, but what the heck) I didn’t put it up fresh as I have only just worked out how to get my mini DVs into the computer! (Don’t expect any technical prowess on this channel.) Enjoy. Read the rest of this entry
