And so it begins – The 12 Days of Looting, 2013 Edition.

The 12 days of Xmas are those immediately after “christmas”, ending on the Epiphany. However, since we here at LTV could give a rats ass about religion and magic babies, we enjoy Xing that hippy Jesus right out of his birthday, so we’re going to jump the gun and start celebrating the 12 days.… of LOOTING – starting right god damned NOW.

That’s right. Looting.

Looting is what happens when you visit an abandoned building and dig up stuff that would otherwise get crushed under a bulldozer or set on fire and broken by vandals. Sometimes this loot has retail value, but more often than not it has household value, or is something worthless to anyone else, yet awesomely collectible since it just plain looks cool-as-fuck. Since all the smartest explorers we know are looters, it made total sense to celebrate the 12 days of Xmas as the 12 days of loot-mas. Over the next 12 days we’ll post a new photo every day showing off some completely random loot.

What did you loot this year? And if you didn’t loot anything – why the fuck not start today? Xmas is coming! It’s time to Loot some gifts for all your reprobate friends!

Let’s start the first day of looting off right – Here’s a lovely Smith-Corona typewriter – looted from an abandoned factory where the scrappers were too fucking stupid to realize what it was worth.

    “Control knows more about the NYC looting than anyone else on or below the surface of this planet. He has spent nearly 30 years looting in NYC’s more forbidden locations. When not underground, he’s probably bitching about politicians or looting something digital.”
    btw- nice find and you’re absolutely right, never bought breakfast plates or coffee mugs for years, nuff closed hotels around!

    LOL! I should change that ridiculous bio to match the looting days of Xmas.

    I mean if you’re really desperate there’s always a ton of glasses and cups at the thrift store, or any number of bottles to reuse. In the early days of SantaCon 15 years ago, people would drink beer in public out of pine sol bottles. Self-recycling 🙂

    The LTV 12 days of looting series posts are truly magical. Teach the UERetards on the importance “taking more” than pictures… This has way more of a preservation arts impact…
