I grew up a small town kid with a small town mind. I like scary movies, and drawing, and playing basketball in the driveway, and playing with my friends in the field across the street from me or the woods that was at either end of the road. We lived on a lake and lake… Continue reading Sometimes We Have To Leave
It feels strange to say this but I have been a part of putting seven film festivals together (eight if you count my involvement for the Flint Film Festival in 2005). Heck, I met my wife through a film festival. It started with the horror group I was a part of and our showing short… Continue reading A Festival of Film
In which I talk about the wealthy class and their responsibility to humanity. Theme by Grimson.
Living in a northern city, I can appreciate the trepidation that arrives with the changing of the leaves. It seems it’s either feast or famine for us thanks to the joys of climate change. We will get summer a little later and then we get a few days where it’s warm and makes you think… Continue reading What About Fall?
I have always had a love for classic cars. I imagine it comes from my father, who has always loved them as well. Classic cars and car culture are quintessential parts of Americana and of what we imagine as this idealized America. They are part of our identity. While I am glad that we are… Continue reading The Road Behind
Do you sometimes get the feeling that it just doesn’t matter? In the whole the big old largeness of EVERYTHING but then also closer to the ground, things like the January 6th hearings and, for folks like me in Flint, the quest to punish people over the water. That none of it really matters. It… Continue reading It Just Doesn’t Matter
In which I talk about the idea of placemaking and the idea of placemaking in my home city of Flint, Michigan. Theme Intro/Outro by SKELETON KIDS.
To say I have a love/hate relationship with my city of Flint is to put it mildly. I fiercely love this city and its people and its culture and its resilience. I loathe the bureaucracy that is so rampant here and the way that the leadership never seems able to coordinate or work together… Continue reading Save Our Schools
There’s a weird sort of gaze that the world gives my current home of Flint, Michigan. It’s not quite pity but it’s pity’s cousin. A sort of nodding look that says, oh, you’re from Flint. Ohhh. Yup. We’re the sadsacks of the country, it would seem. Our industry left. We got hit with a… Continue reading Knocking Off The Rust
I mentioned it a bit ago on one of my podcasts how the city I live in and love, Flint, has some money coming its way. Some of that money is from the water crisis – though most of that SHOULD go to the people, but we’ll see – and then there’s money that… Continue reading Re-Built, This City- blog
In which I talk about the arts scene in Flint, Michigan and the time some zombies tried to protest an art show we were putting on. IT'S TRUE! Zombies descended on our little art show as a sort of silly flash mob to protest our use of the word 'guerilla' and because artists dared to… Continue reading The Spooky Chris Podcast – Guerillas
In which I talk about money, greed, and Flint's water crisis payout.
