Earth Hour in Warsaw


Tuesday, October 12, 2021

Original YT playout date: 27 March 2010
Duration: 15:54

The ordinary inhabitants of Warsaw vote with their light switches to show what they think about how our human activity can influence climate variability.

The UN, that diabolical organisation, has started these yearly events encouraging the people to put their lights out at a specific strategic time around the Spring Equinox every year.

I’m just wondering whether all this isn’t just a way of getting people, unknowingly, to assist in an act of mass witchcraft. As an act of obeisance towards “”Gaia””, the Earth mother deity of the pagans, people in their own homes dim their lights at the culmination of one of the most powerful witches’ sabbaths of the year, lending their tacit support to the atrocious spells being worked out against God’s people and God’s plans by the new age pagans.

Think twice before doing anything these people recommend you to do, from vaccinating your children to eating certain foods according to some “”codex”” they’ve drafted, to even switching off lights at certain times. They have their own beastly religion which they are trying to force on the world, on the people who rightly belong to Jesus Christ.

Ordinary Life


Original YT playout date: 14 February 2010
Duration: 17:46

This is just a few bits of early January footage left from my old Vado (these days I’m filming mainly on the new HD Vado). These bits were left over, but what they show is just some glimpses of very ordinary moments in the family and driving from work, etc. From this point on the “out and about” video is mainly going to be done with the new HD cam, although I may well press the old Vado into service when needed…

Belgian Conga


Belgian Chamber, Christine Avgustaki, Belvedere Restaurant, Warsaw,

Original YT playout date: 17 January 2010
Duration: 10:03

“Well, they didn’t exactly conga, not by the time I left, anyway. It was the day after Hermann van Rompuy was named by the powers that be, (by which of course, I don’t mean the democratic electorate, as we did not get a vote on it, but as yet we’re still allowed to comment that, so I am) and the Belgian community abroad were so delighted by this that they invited all their friends to a slap up meal and a concert by one of their stars, in the most expensive restaurant in every capital city, to celebrate. We got Christine Avgustaki, for Warsaw, and the Belvedere restaurant. I hear that we had tried to get Jacques Brel for Poland, as he has many fans here, but that he was otherwise engaged.

Many thanks to Belgium for this, we all had a wonderful time, and I only left early as it was already past midnight, and anyway I never trained to dance, so I dance like a train.”

Snippets of Warsaw


Original YT playout date: 10 November 2009
Duration: 14:50

Here are a few odd bits that didn’t really belong anywhere else, that only had in common that they are from Warsaw. The first snow in Warsaw this year, cockroach infested Que Huong restaurant which cannot be bothered to let you know it is having a closed party until you come right up the staircase to it, the stupidly named Samsung Corby, and the ludicrous new trend in Mentos advertising. These are just some of the odd bits in this here fillum.

Reckless Roof Clearing in Warsaw


Original YT playout date: 21 March 2009
Duration: 7:27

“There is a safety requirement to clear the snow off roofs, and so ironically, some people perform that activity with scant regard for the safety of people below. Here was one such case I witnessed.

I’ll leave it for the authorities to take appropriate action. Which they won’t of course. It would be too much like actually earning their money.”

Japanese friend in Warsaw


Original YT playout date: 24 February 2009
Duration: 24:49

Here is a day spent in the company of Takahiro Kajiura, an intelligent and cultured gentleman from the land of the flowering cherry.

I used for the background the song Ue o muite arukō, also known as Sukiyaki, by Kyu Sakamoto. This is a song I remembered from earliest childhood, which Takahiro-san helped me to identify.

上を向いて歩こう
Ue o muite arukō
I shall walk looking up

涙がこぼれないように
namida ga kobore nai yō ni
So that my tears won’t fall

思い出す春の日
Omoidasu haru no hi
Remembering Spring days

一人ぼっちの夜
Hitori bocchi no yoru
On this lonely night.
