RL 102-17 Russian Basic Grammar #17/1


Original YT playout date: 16 August 2008
Duration: 22:52

This is what you’ve told me you wanted. At long last Huliganov responds to the demands, requests, threats and indecent proposals and produces the 17th lesson. It’s in 2 parts. The second part is very nearly ready, but just to keep the play out pattern going it’ll be three videos down the list. Ie, probably tomorrow, for those listening the first day this is up!

I introduce a whole new way of tackling the tricky area of prepositions in Russian. You’re gonna love this…

OK. The image promised is up on the facebook group. Please join the following:

Royal Botanical Gardens, Madrid (Huliganov’s Madrid Experience #9/11)


Original YT playout date: 21 June 2008
Duration: 18:17

This is pretty much what it says on the tin. If you like plants, you’ll love this. The only problem is, not may people watch botanical videos unless Alan Titchmarsh or Charlie Dimmock are doing them. Still, in the end, I always remember what my chief in the old TV station said; “you don’t make television for yourself” – thankfully, this ain’t television, this is youtube, and my rule is simple: if I like something, I do it anyway!

So watch out, Alan and Charlie! Victor Huliganov may not be on the war path, but he’s certainly going up the garden path, and while his puns are pathological, at least they’re not pathetic. Mostly.

Poetry Recital on Madrid Street (Huliganov’s Madrid Experience #8/11)


Original YT playout date: 14 June 2008
Duration: 21:11

A poetry recital in the street and a lot more in the eighth of the series on Madrid. Those of you who asked to hear more of the Julio Iglesias piece “Corazon, corazon” will be pleased here. If you want to buy your own copy you’ll find it on my astore. That’d only make me a couple of cents, and the only reason I mention it is that the piece is not easy to find, and quite a few of you have commented in earlier parts of this series that you want to get hold of the product.

Huliganov’s “Almost There”


Original YT playout date: 31 May 2008
Duration: 4:16

A rendition of the Andy Williams number “Almost There”. One of my perennial favorites.

My parents had an Andy Williams album and I used to listen to it as a boy and sing along to the songs quite a bit. So I tend to know some of this guy’s repetoire fairly well. Indeed I would describe myself as an Andy Williams fan and would be happy to visit his birthplace
one day. If there is one artist that deserves the london Philharmonic makeover more than any other (sorry Buddy, sorry Carpenters, I love you too) then this is the one it has to be, and it hasn’t happened yet. I don’t know if it’s in te pipeline, but if someone is in the know then maybe they can get this project going.

I remember once singing this number, or possibly “more” Read the rest of this entry

Huliganov’s Venice Experience #1 – Visionary Sinkers


Original YT playout date: 31 May 2008
Duration: 22:22

This is the beginning of a short series about Venice and actually I am pretty happy about this one, it is, for the technology I had, quite attractively done. Of course I get nowt, as the third party music takes any cash that might conceivably come from the ads they run, but I didnt have really the big picture back in those days. At least I made some nice things I can enjoy looking back on and hope you will also.
