Let’s get out of here


Original YT playout date: 7 November 2009

In the third of the three videos featuring my recent drive from Warsaw to Prague and back, unexpected diversions at night force me to drive through the ancient settlement of Kozieglowy, or “the place of the goats’ heads”, a place besmirched by pagan rituals in the past and till today a major supplier of pagan Christmas trees to the rest of the country and an accident blackspot. It is like a Polish road equivalent of Haiti and the Bermuda Triangle all rolled into one. One gets the impression that the very road is haunted…

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.

Road Rant between Czestochowa and Opole


Original YT playout date: 31 October 2009
Duration: 46:09

We are driving on the way to Prague from Warsaw – this is part one of three videos taken on the same drive.

Topics covered include a discussion on the origins of pilgrimages and whether they should have such a central place in many people’s view of the Christian faith, then a live look at some of the places in Poland where there is still a German minority living unresettled after the war, and a glimpse of Opole city centre, and its inspiring sculptitudes.

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.

Greensleeves


Original YT playout date: 11 October 2009
Duration: 5:15

Lucjan O. Poworocki’s latest “Extraordinary Rendition” takes us into the composition of that fractionary King of merrie England Henry the Eighth, an ode to his paramour and her penchant for using her brachial garments as an Ersatz hankerchief.

The second course features Huliganov, discovering how some of the food and drink outlets in frankfurt Airport are failing to tick all the boxes when it comes to TQM and governance issues…

How Deep is Your Love?


Original YT playout date: 10 October 2009
Duration: 4:38

Lucjan O. Poworocki makes an extraordinary rendition of this Gibbs Brothers classic. Afterwards the Boss gives a dressing down to Miss Jones for being inappropriately dressed at the office.

The Boss was a one-off character made by me but his only real distinguishing feature was having one eye. Other than that he was similar to other characters I had already done. The irony of someone with only one eye criticising colleagues for their apprearance at work was supposed to be something along the lines of beams and motes, but when I checked about real human cyclopses the images of cyclopia were too tragic really to be adjoined to any flippant humour, so effectively I didn’t take the idea any further.

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.”
