The other day I was driving home and took a shortcut through one of the “less sexy” parts of Leominster (that’s pronounced “LEM-in-stah” for you non-locals). I came across something interesting on one of the apartment buildings. Typically satellite TV dishes are mounted on the roof of a building, or at least somewhere out of immediate sight. The folks at this place decided to be rebels and break the mold. Smash the cookie-cutter, even! They all decided to proudly display their dishes on the roof of the building’s entryway.

DirectTV FTW

I can’t think of what to say about this really. Perhaps the landlord preferred the dishes there and would not allow them to mount on the roof? Or could it be that the dishes all combine at night like a DirectTV Voltron, providing unbelievable reception? Any way you slice it, it’s as ugly as it is amusing.

    Maybe they are shareholders in direct tv and are trying to advertise!

    either way…it looks hideous!

    Maybe the DirecTV guy was lazy and/or afraid of heights? Figured it would be easiest to place them on the awning instead of the roof, out of sight?

    Still very strange. At least the birds don’t seem to use their satellite dish garden as a perch/bathroom like the birds in my area do. I have a nice white streak down mine.
