Watch The Throne Review

Welcome back to Music Monday Everyone,

As much as I would love to send you guys some variation of my fave genres (soca, dubstep, rap, and house), I couldn’t possibly mention anything other than the “historical” release of the album “Watch the Throne” by Jay-z and Kanye West.

Now I’m not much of a Jay-Z fan (in fact I’m quite the opposite), and though I respect Kanye’s work, cannot stand who he is as a person. I’ve always seen these two as the rap game’s most pretentious, and it has always frustrated me how people will jump on any of their tracks because of their name, and not the quality. They to me are a living exhibition of commercial America ruining music. Soulja Boy is a kid having fun, these are men truly selling out.

That all being said, there’s only one way I can truly describe this album. Swag.

I apologize for my 2 – 3 week absence from the blog but here is something funny :

OK remember in my previous post when i was plied with beer in my French class?

It happened again.

So there was this really cool oral presentation going on about ‘chessboxing‘, which if you are unaware is a hybrid sport combining chess and boxing in alternate rounds.


Apparently the concept originated from a French comic strip which was brought to life by a Dutch artist.

Anyways, I had not eaten all day and suddenly we were offered red party cups with a chess piece attached to them.

No lie, seriously. I was a bishop. And also asking for numerous rounds of beer.

Sadly the beer, supposedly the official French beer, tasted like ass, but I am a starving college student and of course cannot refuse the offer of some beer and Toblerones as they made up my sustenance for the entire day.

It is 7: 14 and I am slightly buzzed.

This is how I party I guess.

We go hard. RYE HIGH!!


Fun Times on Friday Nights

TYA Toronto here to announce that 1/3 of the total team has quit the pervasive and addictive lifestyle that is League of Legends. As you may have noticed on Facebook, Nicholas and David have quit in a recent attempt to stay in school. What is League of Legends you ask? Well, League of Legends (also known as LoL) is a way of life, something that kicks off your dopamine receptors, and a replacement for your social life. League of Legends has brought out the worst in all of us and caused one or two rage quat (plural of rage quit).

Anyways here is a good video that teaches you how to play League of Legends:

Right now, we’re both at my apartment, working on our separate pieces of homework. Which means Abi is reading a book like a normal person, while I am pureeing cardboard and water in a Magic Bullet and then heating it in a microwave to make abstract textures. I don’t even know.

If you have not seen the infomercial for the  Magic Bullet (the personal, versatile, countertop magician!) then you should probably watch it right now:

Seriously, what the hell kind of weird deluxe commune do they live in? Why are there a million people walking in and out of their kitchen? Who keeps that many random partially-prepared ingredients in their kitchen at a time? But at the same time, so weirdly addictive to watch…

Also clearly we are not actually doing our homework. Yayy for procrastination via blogging!!

Until next time,


PS. If anyone wants to add me (David) on LoL, my name is QueenoftheQueef and Nick is outerlabia 🙂

Work hard, play hard.

Hey people, it’s Abi here!

I guess this is more David’s territory than mine, as he’s the interior-designer-in-training, but WHATEVER. Finders keepers, and I just found this crazy article on 10 of the world’s coolest workplaces.

{Quick meeting at Google}



How incredible are those offices!? I want one of those inflatable chairs really badly. I bet those people love to go to work everyday. If my desk looked like that I swear I would be ten times more productive. Unfortunately, my desk is pretty average:


Also, my apologies for the crappy Photobooth pics; my camera is at home and I am too lazy to go get it.

Anyway, I’ll see you guys later.

Much love, Abi

PS. Toronto Crew has been reppin’ for two posts in a row. Step it up, Montreal+London.

PPS. Keep ordering shirts!

You can pay for school but you can’t buy class

Hey guys, it’s David here! I’m in the middle of a 6 to 9 french class and let me say this french class is the best thing ever that’s happened to me.

We’re in the middle of presentations right now and this girl who was dressed in Slavic dance wear did hers on the Polish community  in Canada … and gave us all free beer. Despite the odd taste of Polish beer, the fact that we all got free beer in class is incredible. We’ve spent about one hour watching Slavic Dancing and Polish food with interesting commentary from my prof and I am confident that this is my favourite class all semester by far.  Plus, my prof dismissed me 2 hours early last week. I think my prof looks like a crazy evil twin brother of Robin Williams. I’m looking forward to this semester >).

This guy is my teacher i swear

Here are some sample comments from

“Switched to this course because other teachers so boring. Best decision I made this year. 6-star rating prof. Interesting and fun. Loving it.”

“‘Merci Suzie..umm..Sarah..umm..Veronica……Michelle?’ He forgets your name on purpose and he is such an ass, and so funny! I would take french with him again! Btw his rubber ducks…he named them George Bush and Sarah Palin! This class was a good break during the day!”

“BEST TEACHER EVER!! he was sooooo jokes. everyday we would watch stuff on youtube and talk about unfortunate britneys spears. i would take his class again in a heartbeat. such a cool prof! and funny gal.”

Edit: 5 mins later, I’m on my second cup of beer. Rye High!!!! Drinking at school is certainly a novel experience.


There are also free Twizzlers going around but I do not really like licorice.

P.S. I found this article very funny, read the URL and you will go WTF:,18127/

Anyways, the Thousand Years Apparel home base is very much alive in Toronto; I’m at Ryerson and Abi’s reppin’ it at the University of Toronto ~~

You know where to go for your graphic tee fix : D

Me enjoying some quality suds and pretzels in french class

Peace out, one love until next week,


PS. Also check out this rad shelving unit … I don’t know about its practicality though.

lolll shelving fail

P.P.S. There is some dude named Jules-Caesar in my class. How awesome is that? And to think my friend Benjamin Meyerson would have been named after the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar II.

Edit: @7:50 PM  i may be a bit tipsy  that was my third cup oh god university and my asian tolerance
