RL 102-11 Basic Russian Grammar lesson 11


Original playout date: 24 October 2007
Duration: 12:48

We continue with Dative constructions, used much more in Russian than in Western European languages. Everyone in the room, says Huli, gets kicked into the dative case and nobody is the subject of the sentence, therefore they are impersonal, and in Russian that’s much more idiomatic.

Huliganov’s “Downtown”


Original playout date: 29 September 2007
Duration: 4:29

This one is a mix of types of footage, Logicam and Fuji together, and a seamless overlay of Warsaw driving footage over the karaoke track done at my desk. This is a new experiment, like many of my films have been.

Huliganov’s “Carnival is over”


Original playout date: 15 September 2007
Duration: 9:52

“This romantic song by the Seekers is actually originally a Russian folksong of quite brutal content. Huliganov brings the two themes back together again, both culturally and linguistically.

Lyrics:

Say goodbye my own true lover
As we sing a lovers song
How it breaks my heart to leave you
Now the carnival is gone
High above the dawn is waiting
And my tears are falling rain
For the carnival is over
We may never meet again

Волга, Волга, мать родная,
Волга – русская река,
Не видала ты подарка
От донского казака!
Чтобы не было раздора
Между вольными людьми,
Волга, Волга, мать родная,
На, красавицу прими!

Мощным взмахом поднимает
Он красавицу княжну
И за борт её бросает
В набежавшую волну.
Now the harbour light is calling
This will be our last goodbye
Though the carnival is over
I will love you till I die
Though the carnival is over
I will love you till I die

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.

Introducing Lord Brucey!


Original playout date: 16 August 2007
Duration: 6:49

I did only one with this spoof character, which was invented to troll out my Ozzie friend Graham Rose, who called himself “Lord Moggy” who started out as a viewer of the channel, who ended up coming over to Poland and working with us for about fifteen months.

Lord Brucey is of course hanging upside down as an Australian spoof figure. He reads Samuel Coleridge’s “Xanadu” and then sings the song based on that poem by Olivia Newton-John and the wonderful Electric Light Orchestra.

I always intended to do a bit of him again, but never got afround to it. That having been said, I still do have that hat…
