After not uploading anything with me in it for a while, in protest at my account having received a strike, I can now happily inform that the strike was removed this morning and therefore my strike on producing output is also over. I have a backlog of footage to put up now, this is Prague footage from about two months back, including taxi driver with appropriate name Milan Demeter and a sudden hailstorm, as well as the woman who tried to trap my colleague in her revolving door man trap.., Enjoy.

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.”
