Ah, Germany. Savior of the eurozone; birthplace of the volcano (no, not that kind); breeder of philosophers with luxuriant facial hair (at least after the Aufhebung of this loser). Is there anything you can’t do?
Martin Kohout would presumably answer with a resounding “no” (that is, if he is indeed able to speak).
The meta-YouTube artist, whom you may remember from this post (Wesleying: so self-referential), though born in Prague, is based in Berlin and is a testament to all the wonderment of the internet/hipsterdom/the Fatherland.
His bio is as follows:
1984 – born in Prague, Czech Republic
1990 – first knock-out tooth (fall from tricycle to the road)
1993 – two times knock-out tooth (fall when walking on a paving, and slip on a wet foliage while pushing a concrete block up to the hill)
1996 – two times knock-out tooth (fall from a bicycle)
1997 – knock-out tooth by a classmate of dyslexia class during prankish attack by a ping-pong bat
2010 – broke tooth while eating candy
Other projects of his include “handmade railings of elastomer and metal, attached to wall”, an image of Robert (whoever he is) with one of the aforementioned handrails, an image of a family with what appears to be a YouTube-xylophone, and this.
Of course, though, it appears his YouTube channel, “Watching Martin Kohout”–which consists of 821 videos filmed between April 2010 and March 2011–is the main attraction. It has even spawned a MartinKohoutFan channel, though the proprietor is disappointingly verbose. We eagerly await a true “Watching Watching Marin Kohout” video (oh wait, HE ALREADY DID IT HIMSELF).
