I'm going to partake in the biggest tourist-trap weekend of the year in Toronto. Specifically, I'm headed down to Molson Ampitheatre for two days of OVO Fest. Drake puts on an awesome main event night, and I'm excited to see what the Outkast hype is all about today (I was too young for their early material and in my 'lol le wrong generation give me old rock' stage' in the end of the first part of their career).

As I write this, the entirety of hockey twitter is fascinated with the newest version of Sharknado. I still haven't watched the first one, because "So bad that it's almost good. Okay, not good, but we pay attention to it anyway" is the purpose of my existence, not the plot of a movie. Everybody seems to be having a ton of fun, though, so who am I to judge?
