Wanna go to Wąbrzeżno?


Playout date: 7 June 2007

Another look at a town in my beloved Northern part of Poland. At the time I felt that a lot of time had elapsed between taking the footage and uploading it as the difference was two months, down to the busy period, and maybe that’s where the current backlog started but right now I am in 2018 looking still at footage from 2013 and only just uploading it. Which is the main reason I stopped taking current footage. When I do get back to it, there will be a chance I hope to show how much change has taken place in the intervening years as Poland changes very quickly

Huliganov’s American Experience #3 “The Seventh Wonder”


Playout date: 29 May 2007
Duration: 16:45

This film received a strike as I used some Fleetwood Mac, Seventh Wonder, referring of course to Niagara Falls, and the piece of music I replaced it with which was at the time supposed to be agreed by YT also got a copyright strike later. These problems with the secondary area of music in what is, at the end of the day, a video, are well-known to most channel owners on YT.

Recite the Lyrics Challenge “Up The Junction”


Playout date: 26 May 2007
Duration: 3:59

There was a challenge on one of the channels in the Community I subbed to in the early days where you had to recite the lyrics of a popsong as if it were a poem. Not sure I can even remember which channel it was and now of course the “reply to video” feature that was there then is taken away and with it all record of which early days reply video was a response to what and each is a post in its own right. Which has the same effect as if you were posting replies in a discussion thread and then each reply suddenly gets refracted as an original post in its own right. Very annoying, but if only it were the only thing Google and YT ever did to annoy us.
