Train from Prague to Warsaw – Part 3


Original YT playout date: 16 February 2010
Duration: 14:42

We get as far as Olomouc and then the low light makes it not worthwhile. So we cut to a bit of the return journey – this time the plane was not cancelled, and I even got given an upgrade!

So, in the main, we’re good buddies, Czech Airlines and me. Which is more than I can say for SAS, British Airways and, recently, Lot.

Train from Prague to Warsaw – Part 1


Original YT playout date: 14 February 2010
Duration: 15:43

“This was going to be a Prague Vlog – the first one on the HD cam, but all I really ended up filming was the journey, as when I got there all I did was stay in the office! And as the HD cam is very “”bytey””, I can’t make just the one film of this, so I’ll do it in three parts. You get some lovely real Polish winter landscape from the train after heavy snow – snow that caused the cancellation of the aircraft I was meant to be going there on!

I was determined to go, as I had three meetings that week of people coming into Prague to see me. In the end all three cancelled, but at least my conscience was clear. I made it.”

After not uploading anything with me in it for a while, in protest at my account having received a strike, I can now happily inform that the strike was removed this morning and therefore my strike on producing output is also over. I have a backlog of footage to put up now, this is Prague footage from about two months back, including taxi driver with appropriate name Milan Demeter and a sudden hailstorm, as well as the woman who tried to trap my colleague in her revolving door man trap.., Enjoy.

Into and back out of Prague


Original YT playout date: 31 October 2009
Duration: 1:03:03

We continue the journey from Opole and go through Klodzko towards Prague. Can any of my viewers recognise the work of literature being played in the night drive through Klodzko – and the voice actor?

The next day we show unbroken footage of how to drive out of the centre of Prague in the direction of Wroclaw.

Don’t miss the third and final part of this epic drive where we have to brave the awful place of Kozieglowy at night.

Don’t Give Up – song dedicated to Vaclav Klaus


Prague flat, Vaclav Klaus, own composition,

Original YT playout date: 17 October 2009
Duration: 3:32

Czech President Vaclav Klaus is coming under more and more pressure to sign the Lisbon Treaty. Because he knows very well, as many of us do, that this Treaty has been forced on us without due consultation – a small taste of the massive abuses of democracy to come – and therefore, being that rarity an honest politician, he is against signing it. But the elite who want to return the civilised world to medieval feudalism with themselves as lords and masters, only with much more advanced tools at their disposal, as well as push for a unified world Government under such Reprobates as Obama, Blair and their anonymous keepers, they are increasing the pressure for him to sign. The thumbscrews are on the Czech Republic now, and in order not to have to repeat Ireland’s punishment (namely total undermining of their economy), they are already reaching for the pen.

Great that they held out the longest, but what a pity to give up now.

My latest composition, which starts half way through this after my version of Telstar, is called “”Don’t Give Up””. I wonder whether any of my viewers wouldlike to suggest lyrics for this song in the comments section. If you write the best lyrics, then they’ll become the lyrics and you’ll be acknowledged as the writer of the lyrics.
