Happy Bicycle Day Fam; the Cool Origin Story of a Slept on Holiday 

As we grow accustomed to certain holidays, bicycle day should be marked on everyone’s calendar, just to reminisce about how the hell it started. 

Albert Hoffman, aka the GOAT, self experimented with his own experiment that we like to call now a days “LSD” and he did in the coolest way possible. Hoffman knew that what he and his peers were working on can possible change the perception of the person using it, so he went on a bicycle ride and practically tripped balls for 2 hours, and what he said basically sums up the life of a person who gets frequent panic Attacks.

“affected by a remarkable restlessness, combined with a slight dizziness. At home I lay down and sank into a not unpleasant intoxicated-like condition, characterized by an extremely stimulated imagination. In a dreamlike state, with eyes closed (I found the daylight to be unpleasantly glaring), I perceived an uninterrupted stream of fantastic pictures, extraordinary shapes with intense, kaleidoscopic play of colors. After about two hours this condition faded away”

I am not promoting drug abuse, but what Hoffman described can happen to people sober, except these chemicals change the perception of what a person can think or believe. Who knows? I’m gonna go say high to the dragons outside,  and play real life Mario Kart with Mel Gibson and Will Smith. Have a good day fam. Stay golden. 

How Converse new Commerical will help Revolutionize the Culture (Again)

It’s really hard to explain how over the course of pop culture, Converse has always  been a helping hand in changing the style of sneakers, but now Converse sponsored a new commercial on Facebook, and it was probably the most woke commercial I have ever saw in my life.

First off, the song that they picked, was so on point, Im really interested in why Gaika 3d, it fit perfectly.  “these are my cities, and these are my streets in a state of emergency) and you just see all of these celebrities diving deep and saying short sentences that are truly impacting.

It’s very fast pace, and it’s a wide variety from rapper Vince Staples, eleven from Stranger Things,  but then things got a little tricky for me. I started seeing people I did not even know, and then I got the message. Converse is basically making it as if this were you, we all have thoughts of how to be successful, but we just have to wait for the perfect opportunity.

We do not know when that is, but in the meantime you can work on yourself and branch off and experience everything, and enjoy the little things in life, just  knowing  that one day your day will come, but you’re going to take a couple Ls a long the way. 

But also another great thing about this video was the outfits everyone was wearing. Basically the message of not caring what other people are thinking about your clothing, and just wearing what you like. And if you see something you don’t understand, ask questions, and Being yourself ( I know this could be hard it’s rocket science) 

I really like how diverse social media is going, and who knows maybe those robots will come in handy in the near future. But in the meantime, I’m going to hit the gym, and then get some bomb Greek food. Have a go

You are the only one holding you back

Don’t you just love those days where everything is going smoothly, then wam! The old existential bug comes to town. And everything is processed under a microscope. 

This can be overwhelming, but do not worry, this can actually be the greatest thing that has ever happened to you. As you go through life, you may seem to question if you are the best version of yourself, and some days I just don’t even look in the mirror and just have this belief that I’m just an awkward kid, and then I just came waltz around like yup I’m toats a douche

But then I just suddenly look in the mirror and just laugh, because I am not the person I was even a year ago, I am a much more independent person, and I basically became obsessed with waking up early to go to the gym.

Be patient, the good times will come. You just have to experience a lot of shit until you start seeing your true self. And each day I just feel like I am getting closer and it’s pretty lit. So yeah keep going my friend, and just remember you aren’t as alone as you think you are.

D Why has Risen; Macchiato Szn is Upon us 

During my sophomore year of high school, there was some crazy music coming out on YouTube, some from the likes of KYLE (k.i.d) Futuristic,Sk4MC, and many other “Buffnerds” but not a lot of people really cared about them and were considered under ground, although the music wasn’t bad at all.

One person who was popping with them, D Why, or David Morris, The Macchiato Music sensation, was basically the G eazy of that group, before G blew up the way he did. Morris had a couple of great mixtapes like Don’t Flatter Yourself, he was dapper, yet showed off that he has bars and can be indie at the same time.

We’re in 2017 and KYLE,Futuristic, and various other Slept on artists are seeing “mainstream” exposure, yet D why hasn’t dropped a song since 2013.

It’s been almost 4 years since Morris has dropped music, but I never really cared, I just gave him time until I realsixed it’s been 4 years since I’ve heard a new D why song. This time is almost over, D why recently tweeted that he will be dropping new music this year. 

I’m going to keep waiting, whatever this man went through, and learned over the past 4 years, I feel like will be some amazing music. Hey D grab a macchiato with me some time man, Manhattan Macchiato season. 

March Madness hits Vandy;Northwestern avoids the upset that never was 

The first day Of march madness has begun, and we have much to talk about. Whether the upsets or amazing game play our college athletes have to offer.

After coming back late from behind, Vanderbilt seemed to have thereselves an upset, but Mathew-Fisher-Price fouled a Northwestern player, which forced 2 free throws. Vandy was up by 1 point with 14 seconds, Northwestern was stressing on how to get 2 points, but Fisher Price venmoed them that easily with the foul. It was a mistake, but in the end did cost them the game.

Fisher-Price is going to have some sleepless nights ahead of him, hopefully he will bounce back and learn from this horrible experience. March has many surprises for us, and many of them will be introduced from this tournament. So sit back, relax and enjoy the madness.

Why the Mets should try to acquire Eric Gagne

Over the past years, the New York Mets have revitalized many careers, like Renè Rivers and James Loney last year. Seeing the success of the storybook ending events of both of them coming out of nowhere, and helping the Mets make the postseason, when at a point in time it was questioned to whether they could even come close to the wild card. Im sorry if we’re giving contracts to Tim Tebow (I love you) let’s consider Gagne lol.

Although Gagne has not thrown an inning of pro ball in 4 years, he shows that he has stuff left in the tank for Team Canada, throwing over 94mph with authority.

The Mets need one more started reliever, pending how long Familias suspension will last, everyone moves up in the ranks, and some may not be ready to be a big 7th inning or 8th inning specialist, Gagne brings a veteran mentality, while also filling the old veteran void, presented by Bartolo Colon over the past years.

It is reported that 5 teams have asked to see him pitch, I would not be surprised if the Mets were one of them, it would be fun to watch, and the Mets can find small ways to upgrade their already deep franchise. 

It will definitely be an interesting year for baseball, so stay up to date on anything sports or media related from PPF Daily. Gucci Suave out.

When Complex Beats you to the Punch; How Great Minds think Alike

Yesterday was a normal day for me. I started my day at 9am to hit biceps and triceps before school, as  I was loading up my pre workout I decided to get pumped up to the talented Atlanta artist 6lack, who although I have seen on SoundCloud, and Twitter, he has not really been on Complex’s radar.

So I’m jamming, snap chatting, people are replying like ” yo who is this kid” and I’m like yeah it’s 6lack, a lot of “damn this guy is fire” and they’re not wrong, but something strange happened

Out of nowhere I check Facebook, and Complex runs a huge story on 6lack, and Nadeska Alexis did an amazing job showing all of the aspects of 6lack. Complex’s platform can be presented to a large audience, and when you have that platform and really want to help your favorite artists get recognized, you can really mend the mainstream the way you want it to be.

Although Complex has always been fire, most of my curiousity has been focused on Jinx from Complex, who has been focusing on Pigeons and Planes. He has a wide range of taste in music, and he uses his platform to present the dopest music he finds, and wherever he is going to present his stories.

We need people to be weird. And I am willing to go the extra mile, like all of the people who we read every day. So that people can be enlightened on how much good music, and random things out there, we just have to find it.
