We drive through part of this city in rush-hour. We don’t see the centre, but we drive past one or two of the “icons” of this famous industrial city.

As promised, starting from the beginning of 2011 I’m posting here the new YT uploads as they happen over there, as well as carrying on doing the ones that are 4 years old in chronological order. This is one of the newly uploaded ones, although I actually did it in the summer. I still have a similar routine, with the slight difference that I plane to fly out and back once every two weeks this year, rather than every week as it has been for the last year and a half.
By the way the currently uploaded (on or after 1/1/11) video will have the abbreviation (CUV) on and so you will be able to tell which which video posts are the ones uploaded now from the ones which I did 4 years or so ago. Another aim of mine is to try and keep within 5 years if I can. That may well be over ambitious on my part. By the time I get the last of those 2010 uploads up in chronological order they may well be seven years old. At this rate it could seriously take seven years to get this all the way I want it! But then … wot larks! I just hope YT is still around in 2017 in order to get there. And all of us, including me with my flabby health risks, for that matter.

In this video, Huliganov discusses the literary device known as the “pathetic fallacy” and illustrates it with a 50’s song by the poet Skeeter Davis, “The End of the World”.
This was a piece I did impromptu, as I had half an hour before a meeting and the idea had presented itself on the drive down to Katowice. Here we see the early Huliganov crystallising into the character we see in later videos.
This still has a medium degree of popularity, and even the same day as I upload this there is a video response by Atticus Stount. I also used stills from this video for a couple of channel icons that are going around, which you may have spotted.
For example, this one:
