I wanted to incorporate the city and its inhabitants into my filmmaking.

No Your City In a city of over 8 million people, it is impossible to walk the streets without running into interesting New Yorkers with unique relationships to the city. Whether it is Don Ward, the best shoe-shiner in Manhattan or Te'Devan the 6'7" Nomadic-Jewish-Healing-Freestyler. Everyone has a story that is worth hearing, but unfortunately most of them go unheard. New York City is the busiest place on earth and it is rare for someone to take a few minutes out of their schedule to stop and chat with a fellow New Yorker. No Your City is an 8-part documentary series that offers a glimpse into the lives of these extraordinary New York City inhabitants.

Shouldn't it be "No You're City "?

This post sounds like Naked City: "There are eight million stories in the naked city. This has been one of them."

I know some folks who went to Oberlin with that Kalan guy and they've been going on about what an asshole he was even then.

Then again, where else is everyone trying SO HARD?

I almost love Kalan. He's like the 2010s equivalent of Rik Mayall in The Young Ones.

It is a tribute to New York's version of civilization that Kalan is still alive.

Anybody know who did the music on that trailer?

Ah, I see now, there are credits on that YT page: Music by Falside.

I'd like to offer one bit of friendly advice to Kalan: you should stop drinking the remains of thrown-away soft drinks and such that you fish outta the garbage. You could really fuck yourself up like that.

Hard to talk to someone when you are walking around trying not to make eye contact with someone who's gonna try to slip you a Mickey.
