In light of the fact that The Chalice has been out of Flint a while, And Tom is bringing it home. I would like to suggest Tom stage a parade down Saginaw street. It would be a FANTASTIC addition to the official video...If that doesn't work out... I have requested at least 3 still photos: 1. A picture of the Chalice with the Weather Ball in the background. Preferably taken from the roof of the Capitol theater.2. A Picture of the Chalice holding a cream ale next to a 1/2 pound supreme with everything olives and cheese.3. An action shot of Tom chugggin a strohs from the challice at the bar of his choice. As long as it's not a candy-ass suburban sports bar.Any other suggestions? Jim
A photo of the winner actually fishing for carp from one of the Flint River bridges would be nice.And what happened to the Chalice youtube video?
Howzabout a few suggestions that lean towards the negative tip.1. A picture of the Chalice filled to the brim with crack rocks stashed (rather poorly) behind the bushes at the corner of Avenue A and E. Rankin.2. An action shot of the Chalice being used as a urinal by one off the fine semi-homeless dudes who lurk Buckham Alley.3. The Chalice admidst a pile of scrap metal about to be recycled at a Dort Hwy junk yard.
Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
