Lucjan O. Poworocki’s latest “Extraordinary Rendition” takes us into the composition of that fractionary King of merrie England Henry the Eighth, an ode to his paramour and her penchant for using her brachial garments as an Ersatz hankerchief.

The second course features Huliganov, discovering how some of the food and drink outlets in frankfurt Airport are failing to tick all the boxes when it comes to TQM and governance issues…

I found this jazzed up version of the Gluck singing lesson staple on the net, but the singer and the backing were not credited. If anyone can help me give credit where credit is due, by all means do!

Have you seen but a white lily grow?

Lucjan O. Poworocki returns with a grievous rendition of this music class staple. Originally composed by Robert Johnson in 1616 for one of Ben Johnson’s plays, and possibly hummed by the Bard William Shakespeare himself on his way to work, this piece has been massacred by aficionados over the centuries, most notably of late by the former Police-man and head teacher Sting, who got his name while trying to put the songs lyrics into action and “taste the bag of the bee”. Probably.

Non Te Scordar Di Me

“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…”

Huliganov’s “Almost There”


Original YT playout date: 31 May 2008
Duration: 4:16

A rendition of the Andy Williams number “Almost There”. One of my perennial favorites.

My parents had an Andy Williams album and I used to listen to it as a boy and sing along to the songs quite a bit. So I tend to know some of this guy’s repetoire fairly well. Indeed I would describe myself as an Andy Williams fan and would be happy to visit his birthplace
one day. If there is one artist that deserves the london Philharmonic makeover more than any other (sorry Buddy, sorry Carpenters, I love you too) then this is the one it has to be, and it hasn’t happened yet.

I remember once singing this number, or possibly “more” Read the rest of this entry

New World in the Morning


Original playout date: 15 December 2007
Duration: 2:29

When I recorded this piece, which was an idea to put a bit of Elvis into the Roger Whittaker number, I weighed I think my record ever weight of 140 kgs. By the time I uploaded it I was about 130 kgs and looking a little slimmer. Treat this as the “before” photograph to compare with later videos…
