I went to Toronto’s MDBP 2016

Last Last Friday I attended the Mad Decent Block Party in Toronto for the third time.

If you have no idea what the Mad Decent Block Party is I’ll give you a quick low down. It all started back when Diplo created the label back in 2004 in Philadelphia. Throughout the years the label gained more and more attention. In 2008 the label held it’s first ever MDBP in Philly. Which was a local event and had a lot of children in attendance (this is nothing compared to block parties held by the label today)

Here’s a video of the first ever Mad Decent Block Party below.

(I would honestly just skip to all the parts with Elmo turning up because those are the most entertaining lol)

While looking to the first ever MDBP video I came across the Toronto one too

Personally I like the idea of MDBP being held at Yonge and Dundas because it’s right in the heart of the city and it looks like an actual block party. The only downside I would say is the amount of ‘other traffic’ (such as people trying to convert you into a new religion, trying to sell you anything possible, children … because not trying to see kids while I’m tryna to turn up, and etc.

This year I wasn’t as excited to attend because I was not feeling the line up that much. I used to let everybody know that ‘MDBP is my Christmas’ but this year I felt like selling my tickets and heading to NYC for ‘Fool’s Gold DAY OFF’ instead but I didn’t.

I went anyways, I went pretty late into it too. It was still good, because I went with the  right people. I still wasn’t feeling the music though, I’m not saying the music was bad either, it was just really on a dubstep vibe that was not my cup of tea. It also ended right on the dot too, I thought Diplo was going to do an encore but he didn’t it was nbd tho (even tho I basically came for just him).

Will I make Mad Decent my Christmas next year ? Stay tuned to find out lol

 

 

Dear Sbux, Please Leave Food Alone

For years now Starbucks has been trying to make food. Most food that they carried worked out well as they would in most coffee shops, such as there cookies, brownies, bars, and loafs just to name a few, you know the typical shit you find at most coffee shops.

But Starbucks along with many other companies always feel the need to add unnecessary shit to there menu, to expand, make money, change the future yada yada yada yet it’s nothing but supreme garbage at the end of the day.

Don’t get me wrong I don’t go to Starbucks in search of food, I know that Starbucks is good for coffee (except the cold brew which sucks).

I’m just sick and tired of seeing bs on the menu, it was one thing seeing a bootleg Rice Krispy bar on the menu for years but now Starbucks thinks they sell trifles. So if you go to Starbucks like that you know that they have a ‘Sunset Menu’ this Summer and if you haven’t checked it out here is a visual of it below.

So basically the new Summer Menu comes with  ‘Granitas’ (another word for drink in the fine language of Starbucks). It also comes with Trifles as well …. and when I hear the word Trifle this is what comes to my mind an actual Trifle you know. If you have never seen a Trifle before here is a photo of one

actual trifle

If you don’t know what a trifle is, it’s basically a cold desert with sponge cake layered with fruit, custard, jelly, and cream. (pictured above)

Here is a video on how to make one

Here is Starbucks version of a Trifle

It’s basically brownies and whipped cream in a cup. On top of that it’s probably a dumb price, I’m not cheap I just don’t see why your expecting me to pay for someone to put a few pieces of brownies in a cup topped with whipped cream, that’s stupid. Unless your working your ass off making that trifle like the dude in the vid above, I don’t see why this should even be considered to be apart of the menu or called a trifle. If i was a barista I would be so upset if I had to prepare that or even put that lame in a cup beside the nice ass drink I just made for some stush customer.

Here’s a tip – Stop trying to make food and work on your cold brew
