It rises about 80 metres (260 ft) above the surrounding Brandenburg plain, more precisely the north of Berlin's Grunewald Forest. It was named after the Teufelssee (i.e. Devil's lake) in its southerly vicinity. It is an artificial hill with a curious history: It was heaped up after the Second World War from part of the rubble of Berlin, approximately 75,000,000 m3 (98,000,000 cu yd) all over the city, during the following twenty years as the city was cleared and rebuilt. While part of the rubble from destroyed quarters in East Berlin was deposited outside the city boundary, all the debris from West Berlin had to be dumped within the western boundary. Its origin does not in itself make Teufelsberg unique, as there are many similar man-made rubble mounds in Germany and other war-torn cities of Europe. The curiousness begins with what is buried underneath the hill: the never completed Nazi military-technical college (Wehrtechnische Fakultät) designed by Albert Speer. The Allies tried using explosives to demolish the school, but it was so sturdy that covering it with debris turned out to be easier. In June 1950 the West Berlin Magistrate decided to open a new rubble deposal on that site. The deposal was planned for 12,000,000 m3 (16,000,000 cu yd). The US National Security Agency (NSA) built one of its largest listening stations on top of the hill, rumored to be part of the global ECHELON intelligence gathering network. "The Hill", as it was known colloquially by the many American soldiers who worked there around the clock and who commuted there from their quarters in the American Sector, was located in the British Sector. Prior to establishing the first permanent buildings there in the very late 1950s, Mobile Allied listening units had driven to various other locales throughout West Berlin hoping to gain the best vantage point for listening to Soviet, East German, and other Warsaw Pact nations military traffic. It was also used to supervise the West Berlin Air Corridors. One such unit drove to the top of Teufelsberg and discovered a marked improvement in listening ability. This discovery eventually led to a large structure being built atop the hill, which would come to be run by the NSA (National Security Agency). At the request of US government, the ski lifts were removed because they allegedly disturbed the signals. The station continued to operate until the fall of East Germany and the Berlin Wall, but after that the station was closed and the equipment removed. The buildings and radar domes still remain in place. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teufelsberg - In July 2013 I stayed for 10 days in Berlin. After finishing some jobs, meeting up with my brother and exploring the city I wanted to make another Magic Lantern RAW test. The funny thing is, in my appartment was a picture of the radar station of which I was absolutely curious about from the beginning but nobody could tell me where I could find it. Hungry for a good rooftop location I began the research for a good place for the next test - and I found it! A blogpost about abandoned places from 2010 gave hints how to access the former NSA ground – sneak around the security at the front and go right through the hole in the fence at the back oft the station. But having a decent bag of equipment and a female model - this was not an option. The blogpost’s comments went on till April 2013 – luckily some abandoned places hunters still went there and wrote about having no problems at all and/or getting busted by the police. Today this property belongs to a group of people and they offer tours around the former NSA field station on the highest hill in West Berlin. After a couple of phonecalls I managed to get permission to make this video – success! www.berlinsightout.de/englisch.htm

Clips from some of his famous speeches spliced with images I shot during his January 20th inauguration. Shot on the Canon HV 20, had to upload a lower compressed file to fit it under the 500mb limit. no tripods were allowed during the inauguration and it was very cold, which explains the shaking.

                      January 17, 2011 by Jesse In 1964, Lyndon Johnson needed pants, so he called the Haggar clothing company and asked for some. The call was recorded (like all White House calls at the time), and has since become the stuff of legend. Johnson’s anatomically specific directions to Mr. Haggar are some of the most intimate words we’ve ever heard from the mouth of a President. We at Put This On took the historic original audio and gave it to animator Tawd Dorenfeld, who created this majestic fantasia of bungholiana. Enjoy this special treat from Put This On: LBJ Orders Pants. Then share it with a friend who loves pants. http://www.putthison.com http://www.polymorphproductions.com/
