Huliganov’s Philadelphia, part 2 – Signers’ Hall


Original YT playout date: 13 November 2009
Duration: 23:00

We go to the place where the bronze casts of the original freemasons who decided that they were “the people”, as in not just SOME people, but THE ones with a capital THEE, and could get rid of the monarchy from the colonies. Some of them were dissidents, but only because they wanted some amendments to the Constitution, not because they were loyal to “Boy” George, the English king, who was considered to have had bad, even chameleonic karma. He was a herpetologist, you see, and his herpes were known all over the world. He tried to tax the colonies to finance his requirement for Zoovirax, so that he could house his chameleons and other herpes in appropriate terrariums, and therefore is considered to have been the first ever international terrarist.

They all signed following the words “yes, we really want to hurt you” in this very hall, built some 200 years later, and in that day they split the English nation into two, forcing the British to colonise Australia instead. The Western part started to be called Americans (even though they were in the process of killing the real Americans, but this self-same thing had been done before in Prussia by the people who made up a leading cohort in the non-loyal Americans) and the Eastern Part plus Canada carried on being the British Empire, and they played cricket and gave up slavery. Officially anyway. Later on America also gave up slavery in the South, battling each other in the process, and later on still they did battle against alcohol producers, the environment and most recently of all someone else’s freedom fighting, as well as turning up close to the end of two world wars, and helping us beat the Germans, who nevertheless love them and forgive them everything.

The leader, Ben Jammer Franklinstein, who was Grand Master of Pennsylvania, even though it was supposed to be a Quaker State and they have oats rather than Grand Masters, wanted all the people to sign, not just his fellow freemasons. He said the following immoral words: “I’d like to get the world to sign, in perfect harmony, this declaration of our state of independency. I’d like to buy the world a coke, and furnish it with ice, and put some lemon in as well, if only just a slice.” however, it was a rainy night in Georgia, we feel, from which that particular soda started raining all over the world.

And such is American history in a nutcase.

In honour of this, Viktor D. Huliganov signs the Treaty of Independence, thus ratifying it and assuring its immor(t)ality. He may not be a freemason like 13 or more of those 33 those bronze figures, but he is all in favour of life, liberty and the pursuit of ice-cold soda.

Huliganov’s Philadelphia, part 1 – Trouble Crossing


Original YT playout date: 8 November 2009
Duration: 18:03

Welcome to the third series of Huliganov’s North America. This deals with the difficulties of getting across the Atlantic when the first plane to Frankfurt takes off two hours late and the connecting flight has to delay so you can get on. The luggage came two days later. When we arrived in Philadelphia, it was raining the way it rains all the time in America whenever I go there but never seems to on your Hollywood films unless they’ve got George Clooney in, in which case it’s studio hands chucking it from the sides in buckets, and it’s really perfumed rosewater. Here’s where to come to see the real America. And we go to America’s first capital, to where American citizenship all began, to where a bunch of English people abroad decided that they wanted to be something else, and wanting to was, in the end, really all they needed. Now they really are something else, as you will see, as the series unfolds…

The bandy-wagon jump that somehow had to happen. Huliganov’s got big eyebrows too, he also sings songs and rolls his ‘r’s – why can’t Huliganov go viral too?

Please do whatever you can to help this go viral, even if it means sneezing on the computer screen.

Thanks.

Tommy Boyd and Viktor Huliganov discuss Tommy’s social experiment on media-fuelled outrage


Original YT playout date: 27 June 2009
Duration: 24:18

This was a live radio broadcast on Play Talk UK on 16th December 2008. Tommy Boyd and Nicky in the Studio received a skype call from this channel’s very own Viktor D. Huliganov, and the topics of discussion include:

1) Tommy’s famous “”set-up”” of Off Com and the powers that be by feigning that part of the country had down time. In fact what he did was fade down all the programme, so that no-body heard anything, following which he played pre-recorded complaints about what he was supposed to have said in the meantime. Find out what happened next …

2) Discussion of Viz, and why it isn’t translatable into other languages

3) A review of the internet project http://www.internetshout.com/

Enjoy!

Viktor Huliganov Rants against the YouTube Pirates!


Original YT playout date: 15 March 2009
Duration: 32:53

“New intro: I spent some time today mending the badly synched audio on this one, but as you cannot simply replace a video file with a better version of the same (if you could it would solve a lot of the problem this even talks about), I’ll have to put it up again, superseding this one, which I’m going to audio-disable myself, just out of irony.

The new version will be up later today.

Those who watched this rant already and got beyond the first few minutes of very odd jerky speech (thanks, Logitech!) will have had the dubious pleasure of watching me talking a good five seconds out and gradually getting back to normal over the course of a half hour.

So by way of repairing this message, which I consider important enough to have spent that much time on – and you might be surprised how much work it takes to clean up using Power Director after Logitech has completely chewed up some cammed audio – and also by way of giving an example of what I’m talking about towards the end, ie, redoing audio and uploading again as a ‘redux’, I’m going to do the ironic thing of “”audioswapping”” my own anti-copyright video! You’ll get the repaired one with re-synched audio in glorious black and white and audio rantycolor just two or three videos downstream in my channel from this one. Enjoy!

Old intro: A belated rant for December. What’s three months behind between friends? Please bear with the jerkiness in the start and the audio being out of sync. Some pirate was trying to sabotage my intellectual property at the moment I was saying it, probably…”

Huliganov belated monthly rant (November’s edition) Poolside thoughts on copyright…

I’m ranting about these pirates who ruin our creativity because they think theirs is the only one that counts. Usually it’s not the artist involved, but the ones who have put that artist in their pockets. As for themselves, they would not create anything, only make money from other people’s creations, and ruin people’s work who get in their way. That’s why they’re the real pirates here, and not the video creators.
