Pilgrimage!


 

Original YT playout date: 8 August 2008
Duration: 1:01:09

An account from the first day of the second army of pilgrims from Warsaw heading out for the shrine of the Black Madonna, on the annual footsore migration of hundreds of thousands of people over a route of well over 200 km, many (such as Lord Moggy of lordmoggy channel featured here) subsisting on mere bread and water for nine days in their quest for fellowship and blessing.

I make a few comments about what I witnessed form a Protestant perspective, but I do mean the remarks in a kindly way, as at the end of the day atheists and islamists need to see Christians standing up and being counted, which is what these people are doing.

Also features in one part an attempt at Chaucer’s famous opening to the Canterbury Tales in the original Middle English. Some of my older viewers can tell me whether I got the pronunciation right or not.

I am actual posting it here on Huliganov.TV during pilgrimage time 11 years later. It goes to show that precisely 11 years ago I got down to below 120 kgs and right now I have a good chance of repeating that, having eaveraged 10 or more kgs more in the interim, sometimes even 20 kgs more.

The Rickshaw Rant


Original YT playout date: 22 June 2008
Duration: 58:14

This video   h a s   i t   a l l !

Well, so it should, bearing in mind it lasts nearly an hour! Still, I would be very pleased if my dear listeners would sit back and just enjoy the show. Get a coffee!

Here’s some of what awaits you:

* Relaxing scenes from Warsaw’s Szczesliwicki park

* One of the rantiest impromptu rants I ever did.

* A unique ride through the park and Ochota in Warsaw’s (I believe) only family rickshaw. (There are a handful of commercial rickshaws in Lazienkowski Park for tourists, but I never saw them elsewhere, and only for hire, whereas mine isn’t)

* Creative use of the new annotations function, including lyrics to some of the background music and supplementary info. These annotations can and will be added to during the active life of the video.

* And to cap it all a couple of interesting pieces of incidental music in the background which I made a few years ago, and have been meaning to incorporate for some time.

Enjoy!

BTW For people in Poland wanting to get a rickshaw like mine, the place to go is

http://www.riksza.pl

If there is any interest in founding a rickshaw society for Poland or an international one, anywhere on the interenet, let me know. It seems the natural answer to the fuel crisis, but we need to lobby cities for wider paved areas, and for the space between bollards which prevent car access still to be broadly spaced enough to allow rickshaw access. Also they don’t go up kerbs very well, so kerbs need to be smoothed off at road crossings.

A Warsaw Evening in the company of Mr Alan Heath


Original YT playout date: 8 June 2008
Duration: 39:51

It’s a pleasant Warsaw evening, just the ticket for a chat with another prolific youtuber, and Alan Heath (channel name “alanheath”) is one of Poland’s most prolific, and like me he is a non-Pole living here. He is also the provider of quite a few of the Viz letters, and so if you see the name Alan Heath in the letters page on Viz, yes, this is one and the same man!

Little horse in the park


Original YT playout date: 18 May 2008
Duration: 14:17

Some of the playgrounds in Warsaw are called “Ogrod Jordanowski” after this guy Jordanowski who worked out that swings and roundabouts and stuff for kids rather than just have a park with plants in it.

We have lift off


Original YT playout date: 17 May 2008
Duration: 6:57

Taking off in a Boeing 737 on a day with reasonable visibility, I reconed there was a good chance to see my flat from the air, and so I did. Actually we were going to Madrid but I didn’t make this part of the Madrid series as it had a different focus.

Aquarium in Warsaw Airport


Original YT playout date: 10 May 2008
Duration: 7:23

This is a new aquarium in the “Business Shark” bar in the departures area of the new terminal at Warsaw airport.

They have a snail problem – nothing a few clown loaches couldn’t solve, but then they might have to kiss their shrimps goodbye too…

What’s up, ducks?

They are obviously still very much in love, but sulking. Each is hoping the other will turn around first. They miss each other, although they are only two feet apart, it may as well be another continent.

Windows on Warsaw


Original playout date: 21 December 2007
Duration: 9:59

“I think you’ll quite like this concept. All of these clips were taken before, during or after actual business meetings I had in Warsaw in the late Summer of 2007. I discovered it’s quite remarkable how many people in business actually take an interest in digital photography and video. Read the rest of this entry
