Original YT playout date: 25 April 2010
This went up a couple of weeks back and a number of my viewers said they would like the version without being speeded up and having music played over it. They wanted the full reality of a bloka having a chat with his hairdresser as the beard came off and the hair got cut.
This is something you’d never see on TV. They talk about “”reality”” TV, but it’s all stage managed and nothing to do with real reality. Here we have a spur of the moment decision and agreement to film the cut, and it was pretty much the same as it usually is without the cam. I assume that’s why people voted on the other film to get the full unedited version, and here it is!
By the way, it’s eleven and a half years later and I still go and get my hair done by Ula every month.

I always go to this hairdresser, Pani Ula from Hest in Warsaw. Although she’s been in a few other ones since then and now is in Akademia Perfect Hair which I won’t advertise too much or there won’t be any slots left for me – it’s hard enough to get me hair done already! She does the best job and is such a nice person too – as you can see from her agreeing to this film, and the funny way she sut off my beard in stages. I’ve been having my haircut by hair for years. Even before I moved away from Warsaw in 2000 for a while I’d had my haircut by her. I never fail to go to sleep while she’s cutting and I did it again towards the end of this one, too.

All my Turkish trip luggage appears to have been subverted to feed and clothe the Dharma project. Here I try and get some sense out of the system that the airlines have put in place to reunite people with their possessions. This was taken after 6 days, by today it’s been 9 days, still no news, and I still have to wait for compensation. Next week I will have to repurchase my entire luggage for the next Turkey long trip, and I still don’t qualify for compensation if the luggage is found before the end of the 30 days, as this person says. I’m not blaming him personally, but the system absolutely sticks. And SAS is much less respectful of its clients than KLM was in my case 15 months ago.
There are quite a few juicy one-liners and bits of sarcasm in this call.

Agent de YouTube Uncle Davey takes Sophie up Monkey Moutain in Alsace, which is a rhesus monkey enclosure and Sophie has a nice time feeding them.
It’s a bit scary really the way she comes right up to them. Thankfully they are not so aggressive and usually will warn prior to biting like most animals.
