Vehicle City

If you have ever seen a Michael Moore movie or show, or have read one of his books, you are familiar with his hometown of Flint, Michigan. It was a town booming decades ago due to General Motors presence but was left without a leg to stand on when they abandoned the city for foreign soil, to save on costs. Anyway, while the town has suffered a slow death, there are still people there that keep skating, despite the condition of their boards. I went over there recently and some really rad people. I decided to throw together a clip from some of the skating I found myself among. This clip features myself (Eby Ghafarian), Christina McCollum (Polly), Stephen McCollum, & Kickflipping Kurt. I used the first recorded track from Polly's band Cheerleader. It is called "You're Not That Comfortable." You can find them on Facebook. Enjoy!
