Off-Ramp | Off-Ramp host John Rabe and contributors share thoughts on arts, culture, and life in L.A.

Mid-Wilshirists abandon televisions, too, but more comfortably.

Doubtless you’ve been following my documentation of the abandoned tv’s of LA in my Vast Wasteland Project.

My friend Gary Minnaert writes,

Hi John. Saw your recent blog post. We have abandoned tvs in the Mid-Wilshire area also.

He sent this picture:

In my neighborhood, the abandoned tv’s stand alone on streetcorners and curbs. But in the Mid-Wilshire area, the dumpers thoughtfully provide a place to rest and watch the tube – if you have an extension cord long enough.
