So I might be moving to the Detroit area with my company for a six month period. I'm not getting enough hours where I'm at now so I'm pretty much just following the work.
For those of you who aren't familiar with Detroit, let me give you a brief synopsis of the city:
- It has one of the highest violent crime rates in the country
- 70 percent of murders go unsolved
- Its one of the most segregated cities in the country
- It has the nations highest unemployment
- It probably has the nations highest wealth disparity
- Large portions of the city have been abandoned
- It has short mild summers and long brutal winters
Doesn't seem like a place one would want to move to, right? Well this is why I'm posting this. I want to hear from any of you that live or have lived there what you like about the area.
Just from looking online, it seems that despite its rough reputation, many parts of the city are in fact very nice. It used to be a very rich city, so some of that still remains. Some of the architecture in the city is truly incredible; ostentatious monuments are all over the place. Of course, its also one of very few cities that has abandoned skyscrapers
It is also within close proximity to many other cities, such as Chicago, Toronto, Indianapolis, and Pittsburgh. I like to travel and explore new places, so this is an asset to me.
Share your thoughts, if you have any

Thought I'd check and see if any of my homeboys on GMC would know where to find one. Every single place I checked is sold out. Brownells has just one that can be back ordered, and the rest can't even be back ordered. I back ordered that one, but would like to get another one. Anybody have any luck?

Its not often I'm blown away by a random YouTuber, but this guy totally destroyed the low expectation I had when I stumbled on this grainy webcam video. I was looking up reviews on the DiMarzio Virtual Vintage 54 Pro and came across this video. Wow. Thats all I can say. He's clearly inspired by David Gilmour, but has his own twist to it. These are the tastiest licks I've come across since that dream I had about Kim Kardashian the other night.
Check him out. Subscribe if you like his stuff and give him some support. He definitely deserves it. He also sold me on these pickups, they sound wicked \m/
