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.

Prague Vlog #12 – Entropa!


Original YT playout date: 6 October 2009
Duration: 50:17

An Evening in the presence of 370 members of Four separate Chambers of commerce. This was Prague’s business event of the Autumn, in the presence of one of Europe’s most talked about pieces of Modern Art, Entropa.

Produced for the Czech Presidency of the EU, it managed to spark off diplomatic rows between the humorless of different countries around the Union, leading to its censorship. It was also removed from Brussels prematurely by the artist as a protest against the way his own nation’s politicians behaved during the czech presidency.

Stereotypes both widely acknowledged and some more recondite are trundled out, but the most personalised satire is reserved for Klaus, the czech president, whose Euroskepticism and Eco-skepticism are quote-mined in the Czech section of Entropa, although I found myself in broad agreement with his sentiments.

The sections with the red cross showing contain background music by myself. Some was adlibbed, some was composed earlier. The song whistled at the end is my latest composition, but it doesn’t have any words or a title yet.

By the way, if you want to book the venue for functions from just a dozen people up to 2,000, I took the card of the curator of the Dox museum, and can put you in contact. They are underfunded, and need whatever help from the business community they can get.”
