Now if someone asks me where to film a post-apocalyptic zombie movie, I'll have a well thought-out answer.

My mom's from Detroit. It's really sad to hear her talk about it in the 60s and 70s, compared to what it's become today.
Also: what the fuck is with the guy's need to look at boats?
Also, notice how most of the boats are on the ground. All of the trailers have been snatched.
THIS INDICATES THAT WHILE THE CITY SEEKS RELIEF FROM IT'S DREARY EXISTENCE, IT HAS NOT THE MEANS TO REACH THIS GOAL, MUCH LIKE THE BOAT CANNOT BE WHEELED OUT TO THE LAKE ANY LONGER

Ah, The Renaissance City in all it's splendour and glory.
And why the fuck are there so many abandoned boats.
Is this the demo for Fallout 4 or Left 4 Dead 3?
YEAH GUYS I TOOK THREE LEVELS IN GRINDING POVERTY AND FOUR IN FAILED EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM.
I REALLY DON'T THINK I'M GOING TO MAKE IT OUT OF THE STARTING NEIGHBORHOOD.
If there isn't a video game analogous to what I'm seeing I can't process it.
Dying leaves hope for a future. There are many much dirtier, more terrible, cities on Earth that will continue to exist forever with no chance of ever improving.
does this really count as a ghetto? i didn't watch most of it but from the couple minutes i did see it seems as if its just mostly abandoned. the ghettos i'm familiar with are almost this shitty but then also filled with dirty children and sad eyed old people.

7:17 brings it all home.

This is where I grew up.
Fuck this place.
Way to go, 'merica!
Oh, and the boats are metaphors. Definitely metaphors.
Detroit is basically a case study for an introductory class in urban planning: some cities fall apart when you cram 3 million people in a space designed for 600,000, but the opposite is just as bad, if not worse.
The really sad thing is maybe a $100 million investment from the federal government as eminent domain could go a long way to turning the city around; just buy up all these slums and demolish them. Get people close enough together that the city can actually afford to provide them baseline services with the tax base it has, and you'd see a new dawn for Detroit. But, once again, the city's too black for people to actually see potential.
Also, this video needs a Kwame Kilpatrick highlight reel to really be complete.
Also, I have to defend my city a little bit; you aren't seeing downtown here, which isn't any more dangerous or less fun to visit than any other major city's downtown.
speaking of hanging out downtown, if you haven't been to D'Mongo's yet you are missing out waaaaay hard
Well, did he go to the Rhino or not?
No, son. The Rhino's just...sleeping right now.
To be fair, if it's a bar or strip club or something, he WAS there in what appeared to be late morning or early afternoon. I severely doubt it was regular business hours.
DO NOT CRUSH MY DREAMS OF THE RHINO.
more like "a tour of detroit"
Fixed it for a proper Detroit soundtrack!
I was thinking more
The horrors of living in a state run by unions.
It always strikes me as funny when consrvatives blame the unions for Detroit, because they could be making the Holy Grail conservative argument in that Detroit drove its entire tax base out of the city through oppressive property taxes for very little return, and it'd be a lot closer to the truth.
Pacobird: That's true too. But I hate unions and feel they're too blame for a lot of problems. They scare off business. When the Koreans and Japanese started making cars in the U.S. where did they go? They went to right to work states, where they wouldn't be harassed by union goons. "Oh those poor people in the KIA plant working for 2 cents an hour, if only they had a union."
Yes, we should be happy when the ruling class allows us to eat the scraps they give up.
Right to work states like Mississippi, which we all know has a wonderful record of human rights when it comes to employment.
People live here?!
What is this I don't even
Half-Life 2: Episode 3 is looking good!
NOT AS BAD AS IT'S MADE OUT TO BE.
