Detroit Lives: Part 1

10 Sep

Palladium has produced this video series on the passion and creativity of Detroit’s young people and how they are creating a NEW Detroit on their own terms.

Starring Johnny Knoxville and featuring some of Detroits’ young entrepreneurs who look past the “pick and choose” journalism that is hyper focused on all the doom and gloom of it’s ailing economy and instead CHOOSE TO LOOK FOR THE OPPORTUNITY.

Featuring one  particularly inspiring “young dude” , Phil Cooley whom (besides being easy on the eyes) has a very similar attitude that I try to maintain about staying and making a difference in your own hometown.

i think this is pretty awesome…check it out:
