He has cavorted naked with Charlotte Rampling [this is VERY NSFW] and covered himself in caviar for Marc Jacobs, but Jürgen Teller thinks "fashion is a wank". Teller's first solo show in Paris is entitled "Nurnberg", it consists of a sequence of images (annoying Flash site, sorry) taken at the infamous Zeppelintribune parade ground, site of Nazi propaganda rallies, which was designed by Hitler's favourite builder, Albert Speer. Over several months, Teller (.pdf) has photographed the monument, the podium and the steep, ruthless steps, all of which have been left to decay. Or not. "It wasn't really maintained, but if there was a broken step, or a smashed wall, it would be mysteriously replaced with a new one." Teller's photographs show the delicate weeds, flowers and lichen [NSFW] that have grown up around the stone blocks. "In Germany, there is a saying about letting the grass grow over things, meaning that events will eventually be forgotten".

That's actually the last thing I was thinking after seeing that first pic.

Hey! She wasn't rampling him, she was shaving him. That's false advertising, dude. Haven't seen a good shot of someone getting rampled in ages.

Wow, and I thought he was the one that didn't talk.

That's my daily allowance of other guys penises right there.

what happens when you go to the gym? no shower?
posted by matteo at 11:49 AM on March 22, 2006

I don't go to the gym, but as you may note, my daily allowance is one, not zero. So there is some flexibility.

Does that mean that that you feel you need to look at one penis per day in order to remain healthy, or that you enjoy it so much that that you've had to set a limit?

A little from column A and a little from column, oh wait, you set that question up so that regardless of my feelings on the issue I have to enjoy looking at penises. Let me fall for your clever scheme in my next post.

An allowance, eh? Why, when I was your age my parents didn't give me any guys' penises at all!

A penis a day keeps the doctor... ?

« : "So there is some flexibility."

If he'd been gettting rampled properly there wouldn't have been.

"Do you like Rampling?"
"I don't know, I've never rampled."

Boy, you weren't kidding -- that Flash is painfully annoying. Couldn't even get through the opening titles before I decided "f-it".

Thanks if I don't see at least one flaccid, uncircumsized penis a day I feel insecure in my manhood.

Ya know, I hate to derail this thread away from all the penis talk...

But the big, historical place I wanted to visit when I went to Germany for the first time last summer was the Nuremberg rally site. And the "It wasn't really maintained," quote is totally spot-on. It's kinda weird. It's like they're not ashamed of it (there are soccer fields in the spaces where the soldiers lined up,) and they know they can't really get rid of it, but then again they just don't feel the need to take care of the site all that much.

And it's a lot smaller than I thought it would be. Say what you will about Leni Riefenstahl, but she knew how to shoot for scale.

It was still WWII history nerd bliss to stand on the spot where Hitler gave those speeches.

Cool post (minus the flaccid cocks...)
