        Detroit is facing enormous challenges with an abundance of vacant and abandoned buildings in the city. Demolition is a necessary part of moving the city forward, but Detroit can't just demo its way to revitalization. Here, individuals on the ground in Detroit show that through strategic preservation and rehabilitation of commercial and residential structures, you can change the dynamic one building at a time and demonstrate that just because it's vacant, doesn't mean it's blighted.

            In her ability to see a place for what it is and what it could be, Yvette Rock is unique among artists who in recent years have tried to capture the fall and rise of Detroit. It helps that the painter, collagist, and photographer lives there, with her husband and four children. "When I go and photograph buildings that are abandoned . . . I start thinking about who lived here and what happened," notes Rock, owner and director of Live Coal Gallery. "I know that someone was really affected by this. That there's a person who lost their home." In her mixed-media installation "The 10 Plagues of Detroit," it's these people as much as Detroit's social and economic challenges that come to the forefront. And it's these people, says Rock, whom God has called to be "repairers of broken walls and restorers of streets with dwellings" (Isaiah 58). In this film, our first documentary shot on location in Detroit, Rock describes how the Isaiah passage informs her own work—and sustains her hope for the restoration of her city.

              I was given this by an elderly neighbour, its a fascinating documentary based mainly in the east end of Glasgow (with some Celtic footage in later episodes) I believe it was recorded from TV onto a video then saved to a DVD. There are a total of 4 episodes, which I'll upload ASAP. Apologies for some of the overlap in the episodes

                Carol Ott, a 45-year-old mother of two, spends her days documenting every abandoned property she can find in Baltimore. She posts photos along with landlords' names and addresses on her blog, Baltimore Slumlord Watch. We spent a day with her in West Baltimore as she walked the streets in search of vacants.

                  This grocery store was flooded after Katrina. 16 months later, it still hasn't been cleaned up and remains a threat to public health and safety.

                    this weekend I wrote some surf music. By surf I mean pacing up and down my block while smoking cigarrettes and thinking about cool movies. So it's named after Greenpoint where I do all my pacing up and down the block when I'm not at the office. I think the video is a pretty spot-on re-creation of smoking cigarrettes on my block while being carried around like a surfboard, but it also looks like a bumper from "the kids in the hall" which is ok because they are awesome. Music used by permission of me, obviously, duh. http://carlos.lunabeat.com/musics/toxic_riviera.mp3
