Downtown Becomes a Jackson Lovefest and Street Fair

New, 23 comments

Another check-in with downtown, where the crowds are currently still around Staples Center. This guy was probably the most ambitious of all the Jackson fans. Thomas Dam, 49, from Los Angeles, jimmied an iPhone with a television set so that the crowd could watch the memorial. "I spent about six months designing this," said Dam, who works in computers. He said he was up late testing it last night. The only problem: When the memorial started, the stream--which was supposed to come through his iPhone--jammed, so the flow kept getting interrupted. Dam said he was a fan, but not a huge one. "But I wanted to show Michael what he meant to the world." More characters in the gallery; captions and text below pictures.
