PIRELLI Calendar 2002: Beyond Nudity
November 9, 2001 2:53 PM   Subscribe

PIRELLI Calendar 2002: Beyond Nudity They blew it, flushed 30 years of tradition down the drain, destroyed a 20th century's socio-cultural phenomenon. Slow and erratic loading, but see all the Pirelli Calendars from 1964 to 2001. Is "...total nudity no longer fashionable..." or is this the real reason : "Bush niece is Pirelli Cover Girl." ?

"They blew it"? I, for one, am damn glad to hear this news.

Fret not. The '02 National Discount Tires calendar sticks to its roots: Candid photos of agitated customers sitting in waiting rooms; pin-up pix of the hunks of the Humble, TX, store; and much more. Best of all, it's free.

bummer. the pictures were very tasteful and completely artistic, but that's stupid... we should all be ashamed of our bodies and others' bodies. and how does this have anything at all to do with sept 11th? it's still just a bunch of pictures of attractive women. maybe artistic expression with partial nudity in a tire calendar is disrespectful to... people........ um... who are....... upset about sept 11th...... ? if it were up to me, i wouldn't print a calendar at all b/c then people would be less inclined to think of dates at all, thus easing pain and suffering somewhat.

Check out 1969: needs more oral imagery.

Look Ma - no Seventies! Gotta love anything that leaves out the Seventies.

This is only the first step. In preparation for rulership by the Taliban in the US, the amount of clothing that models wear will gradually increase with each new edition.

January, June and July are nice months.

Sorry guys, but it's hard to fuck with Peter Lindbergh: the man is, like, a really really really good photographer. Since Lindbergh is the calendar's author, it's pretty difficult to argue that "no boob shots = lame pictures"
