Tree felling going on in a Warsaw park. I can’t get in to work, but at least I can make the best of the situation by making a short film recording my thoughts on the subject.

Re: Sushi Conveyor – chicken’s version


Original playout date: 9 September 2007
Duration: 0:46

This is another “response video” from he time when YouTube had a functionality to make responses by videos and develop a whole video conversation, which was a great idea but didn’t last. The origial sushi conveyor has someone putting their camera on the sushi boat and letting it go around filming people from the viewpoint of a sushi dish waiting to be selected. It was an origina and quite acclaimed piece at the time and several people did the same as a response as invited to do. but mine was a chicken’s version, as I was afraid of getting a quite valuable camera wet.

Admittedly the original was on rollers and not a water channel with very light boats as this one has.

This is Lucka Street in Warsaw, but you’d have been seriously outta luck if you were living here in the Second World War, as it was the site of the Warsaw Ghetto and Jewish people were held captive in their own heighbourhood, awaiting their fate and the final showdown.

I hope you enjoy the gallery part, showcasing photos of mine taken on a Spring walk like a hanami, with Sophie, feeding the birds in Szczesliwicki Park. Here you have Ochota in a nutshell, the part of Warsaw where we live, its charming mix of the drab post-socialist, the timeless park, and the new developments.

Wild hooded crow talking


Playout date: 1 April 2007
Duration: 1:32

This hasn’t happened to me since, in my interactions with the crows of Warsaw. I’ve been divebombed by them, had food stolen by them, and been defecated on by them , but this is the first and last time I got a human impersonation out of one of them. Thankfully I had a camera to hand.

Other remarks:

Another piece from the concert in aid of the Mine disaster in Halemab, hosted by Holy Sepulchre Church in Warsaw, the church most people know as where the heart of Chopin is entombed in one pillar.

This clip illustrates something funny about YT, and not for the first or last time. I called this unknown piece as I didn’t recall the name of it, I did not write it down at the time. Later, in the comments, someone is kind enough to supply the name but I did not change the name or description, just pointed to the comment in the description. Well, of course YT being YT, comments are regularly lopped off, and so right now no comments are showing and I think it is the case with all my videos that pre 2008 comments are largely not visible.

Thankfully that is not the case here. Comments are ot programmed to come down anytime soon, so if someone can be kind enough to identify this piece in the comments here on HTV, I will be most grateful.
