Other remarks:

One of my favorite Queen songs and also probably the most under-rated of all, since most people seem not to have heard of it these days. I was lucky enough to find one version of it in early YT to sing along with.

Other remarks:

Working in Wroclaw, or Breslau as the Germans called it, (it’s all about Tietz with them), it’s a good excuse to go out and eat after work with colleagues and show you the old town square and the Lwow Restaurant famous on that square.

I think this was the first ever time I had done covert filming, something you’ll see lots of later. You can see that this goes back to a time, which seems so long ago now, when people still used to smoke in restaurants. The only way to stop it turned out to be to outlaw it, smokers never managed to control themselves without being passed laws on.

The video name is a doff of the hat to the music festival Vratislavia cantans held here each year.

Quote of the clip: “There’s a bit of an element gathering over there…”

Happy birthday, Tanya!

This lesson talks about names and their diminuative forms. It finishes with a joke and a song – Huliganov certainly does it his way.

Other remarks:

One of my viewers, Uptodat, asked for a Don Williams number, but when I heard this I knew it was one I wanted to dedicate to Elena, and you will see some of our wedding photos in a gallery.

Thanks to my Hawaiian and Californian buddy, Ken Bankston, a super musician, provided the guitar and a backing vocal for this. I also play the mouth organ a little in it, and translate one verse in Russian.

Quote of the clip: “I’m always hungry”

Other remarks:

A nice reminder for me of fishes from times gone by. Of these fishes none are alive today, 11 years later. The pim catfish is the only one you could expect that for, but it had an accident and caught a fin in a net.

This is a discussion following on from someone saying that my tanks were too small in a comment to earlier video “Convicts in Love”.

Quote of the clip: “Small tanks, indeed! Enough of that.”

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.

Welcome to the new species of ape!


 

 

Big news in the atheist community. A new species of ape has been discovered. A phylogenetic study has just concluded that this kind of orang-utan speciated 700,000 years ago whereas the other two species of orang-utan separated from each other 400,000 years ago. Modern humans at that time were all one big happy family, and still pretty much in Africa, it is supposed.

Welcome to this new species, congratulations on being discovered, and what a wonderful thing evolution is that we see it going on around us all the time, with whole new species appearing again and again despite what these religious nutjobs tell us.

Happily thanks to this discovery, science has once again allowed us to pat ourselves on the backs and reassure ourselves that we can explain fully how this world came into being and even if there are loads of unanswered questions and uncertaintoes, one thing we can be absolutely sure of, God and the Bible had nothing whatsoever to do with it!

(I speak as a fool, of course).
