You Tube – The End Of Civilization As We Know It (yeah right)


Original playout date: 7 April 2008
Duration: 36:33

“This is the belated rant for December, although, despite a tiny amount of Christmas related talk at the beginning, most of this rant refers to an article in the online Telegraph dated 7 April 2008, which is when I made the rant.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2008/04/07/nweb107.xml
Some sense-starved junkalist, hiding behind the weasel phrase “”experts have warned””, presumes today to describe our use of the available bandwidth as less valid than his own use, for newspaper articles. I contend that anyone can write – at least at the stylistic level of his article, give or take a few spelling mistakes – whereas not everyone can produce entertaining and informative online video content. Therefore I go on to challenge the author of that article to produce his own video response to my rant, if he thinks that YouTube is such a bad idea, let him tell it to us face-to-face, over the camera.

On the way I give advice to town planners about traffic management in cities, and give a few pointers, which, if only listened to by the right ears, could greatly improve the quality of life for millions living in cities whose commuting plight today is largely caused by the control-freak complexes of minor government employees, and their inability to let free-market philosophy impact on road design.”

I’m not myself. Tooth out, on a diet, bags missing, so you may have found my videos a bit too aggressive recently and this contains a fitting apology for that, don’t miss it, if you are someone who likes being apologised to.

Huliganov’s Rant for February – On UK Political Correctness


Original playout date: 6 February 2008
Duration: 2:13

Once again, Huli is not up to date with the rant. First off Huli points out that this is two years into his channel, and this is at the time of uploading here to Huliganov TV already 12 and a half years which is like one eighth of a century.

Lost – the luggage series


Original playout date: 2 February 2008
Duration: 17:20

All my Turkish trip luggage appears to have been subverted to feed and clothe the Dharma project. Here I try and get some sense out of the system that the airlines have put in place to reunite people with their possessions. This was taken after 6 days, by today it’s been 9 days, still no news, and I still have to wait for compensation. Next week I will have to repurchase my entire luggage for the next Turkey long trip, and I still don’t qualify for compensation if the luggage is found before the end of the 30 days, as this person says. I’m not blaming him personally, but the system absolutely sticks. And SAS is much less respectful of its clients than KLM was in my case 15 months ago.

There are quite a few juicy one-liners and bits of sarcasm in this call.

Duration: 15:16

I came in for a fair degree of criticism for this. Don’t care about that. It is quite a high dislike to like ratio, which for my demographic is quite high.
