We're scratching our heads over this Angeleno-item in today's New York Post "Page Six" gossip column as it doesn't involve Lindsey Lohan (she's in today's issue, too), George Clooney, Tom Ford or some celeb du jour:

FORMER Ch. 5 "Good Day New York" executive producer (and co-founder of "A Current Affair") Joachim Blunck has gone trippy in his new life in Los Angeles. The former trash TV pioneer has been making art under the name Joaquin Blanco, and he's raised a ruckus on his quiet suburban street by erecting "Garbage Cane," a monumental Christmas art piece made of 30 metal trash cans stacked into the shape of a candy cane and festooned with lights. True to L.A., the reaction of his open-minded neighbors has been more "Far out!" than "Get out!"

Blunck's neighbors don't sound like the typical (i.e. hostile) Angelenos to us; he must live in Venice Beach.
