Two Years of Huliganov – The Quest


Original YT playout date: 28 May 2008
Duration: 14:51

“Yes, it was exactly two years previously to this that Huliganov first sprang into existence. This video speaks of the ongoing quest to find the unattainable star, and says that not expeditions to Mars, but work upon ones own character, is the best way to find your destiny, and by the mercies of the Lord which are new every morning, you can treat this day as the first in the rest of your life – it’s never too late to be the person you want to be.

Featuring an atrocious rendition of Brel’s song “”La Quete”” known to the English speaking world as “”The Impossible Dream”” from ‘The Man from La Mancha’.”

Huliganov’s “Je ne regrette rien”


Original playout date: 18 August 2007
Duration: 5:10

We’re out on the terrace again, one of my favorite places to be, this time the Fuji is doing the filming even though I am on the computer and usually use the Logitech webcam in the computer for singing to. But I always used to keep on experimenting with new methods. But the reason is that this time I am playing the chords and singing to at the same time. This is because I didn’t like any of the available backing tracks I could find for this one.

Other remarks:

It’s important to get the throaty r just right when singing Piaf, so obviously Viktor Dmitrievitch Huliganov would not be the consummate performer he is without gargling a bit and doing some warm-up exercises before embarking on this French classic, extolling the virtues of a life in pink.

Chateaux Drive


Châteaux of the Loire Valley

The big picture - we only saw a handful of the total available!

Occasionally these blog posts will contain more than one video – especially if the video is one item which was split up into separate items as this day chasing chateaux in the Loire Valley was split up in order to keep them on HD in YouTube.

They are all one day out, and they can best be enjoyed from beginning to end as one piece, hence putting them into a single post.

I don’t always do this, but sometimes I just feel like it.

OK, so here are the videolinks in order of their appearance:

Enjoy!
