Answer to Response


Original YT playout date: 18 February 2009

This upload took seven attempts – seriously! But then it is seven times longer than it should be and was seven weeks late. It was seven weeks back, and the end of last year, that KenBank gave his well-delivered response to my video entitled “The Gospel and Homosexuals”. Here’s my response, or rebuttal if you like, to Ken’s points. Hard luck, viewers, the result of me addressing what Ken says in 10 minutes is a whacking 100 minutes of possibly not the most scintillating repartee you’ve ever heard, but I get into a number of ideas which I hope some of my viewers, who are used to the fact that brevity has never been my strong suite and are kind enough to indulge me, will enjoy thinking about. So it’s a question of grabbing a coffee at the start, I’d say. No feelings were hurt in the making of this film. Hopefully. But we’ll see what sort of reaction you give it below…

Huliganov’s Finnish Experience #3 – Land of Lakes


Original playout date: 21 December 2007

“We leave Imatra and start to go up country to Puumala. On the way, I take a hitchhiker, Kai, who it turns out lives in England only a few miles away from my first wife and kids. He came back to check up on his property, and he gave me some interesting insights into the region only a few of which you hear here, as this was where my panasonic ran out of batteries and the Fuji picks up the thread from the start of the next instalment. At first you can hear I went out of character when Kai was in the car, but I didn’t want to intimidate him and have him thinking he had got into a car with some crazy person driving, so I hope you’ll understand why that bit is off-accent and off-character.

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”
