Have a drive through a city.

Here's something not so ace when having a drive through a city. The streets of Philly on any given day, the poverty, the casualties of abuse and avenues of damaged people I found staggering...

An eye-opening and depressing watch.

Following the first one of the day I sat down to watch it. Found it mesmeric. The absence of commentary (not that it needed any, it tells its own story) kept it neutral and without distraction, the ambiant sound provided atmosphere. Loved it.

I'm big into social documentary/people stories, another site of interest is 'Soft White Underbelly' on YouTube.

A sight repeated in certain streets of a great many cities. Quite impressed with just how fucked up some of those people are though. What drug combo causes people to stand folded over swaying like that?

Illicit pharmaceuticals mostly. Xanax, benzo's, opioid's, quaalude's, etc. And moonshiners. Most having a pitiful and grim back-story of childhood physical/sexual abuse, junkie parents, mental issues, familiar tales describing how and why they got where they are. The 'Soft White Underbelly' site takes some of them off the street and into the studio for interview.

Raw stuff and almost living art in some abstract way.
