16 Things I Learned In Montreal After Living There

16 Things I Learned In Montreal After Living There

1. Student Protests. Before arriving in Montreal the Internet was ablaze with thoughts that the Student Protests “would screw up Game in Montreal”. This was 100% false. (Typical weesh Internet data that you find outside The G Manifesto.) The protests actually went down my street two nights in June. They might have slowed traffic a little here and there, but had no effect on nightlife and swooping as far as I was concerned.

2. Hockey. It’s true, pretty much everyone in Montreal loves hockey. Even the girls. Maybe this isn’t a surprise to many, but I thought it was just a stereotype, like American’s all love football, which we know is not the case. Personally, I don’t really dig hockey. I like the fights, but since that is the case, I will just watch boxing. Or box. No ice skating in my future.

3. History of Montreal. I realized that Americans don’t learn any history of Montreal or Quebec in school. Basically, an American school teaches you that: “The French came over from France to Quebec and started fur trading things like Beaver Pelts. And now we have modern day Montreal!” That’s about it. Hell, I didn’t even know the capital of Canada. I felt like an idiot. That is until I asked all my friends if they knew the capital of Canada and I think only one knew it on a second guess. And a lot of my friends are legitimately smart and well traveled. Or at least smarter than me.

4. Americans in Montreal. Americans that come to Montreal are really low-budget Americans. Most are from weesh 3rd and 4th tier cities in America or crap cities like DC or places in New Hampshire or Maine or something*. A bunch of busters. Montreal is definitely not invaded by solid West Coast Playboys from the beach towns. Hell, I might have been the first person from Southern California to ever set foot in the place as far as I could tell. Don’t worry, I straight up represented. Hell, the next person that comes from Southern California should send me a few G’s for all the positive ground work I laid, so to speak, for them. I personally know at least 10 Montreal girls that want to go to California soon, because they think the place is chocked full of guys like me. They are in for a rude awakening though, as I am top tier in that place.

5. The Old Port. I like the Old Port. I like the buildings, some of the restaurants, some of the clubs and getting in my roadwork there. It can be great for swooping girls on dates and workouts. However, it can be touristy, you can get hosed on prices, and there are no real neighborhood joints. I had plans to chop up Cherry and St Paul Hotel non-stop last summer. Both changed on me. Club Cherry Closed, St. Paul Hotel Changed. Got unlucky. Not sure if I would live in or near Old Port again. But it still is pretty dope.

6. Québécois not Canadians. When you make sweeping statements about the people in Montreal, even if it is a compliment, don’t refer to them as “Canadians”. Refer to them as “Québécois”. Thank me later.

7. Northfield Cigarettes. These are the Canadian version of American Spirits. Smoke them. They are not as good as American Spirits, but they are pretty dope. In fact, whenever my boys visited, I had them bring me a carton on American cigarettes. Thanks boys.

8. Safety. Montreal is safe as f*ck. The chances of you slipping on some maple syrup and breaking your neck are way higher than you shanked in a street fight. The only thing that is dangerous is the hipsters on bikes. I almost got wacked by one on a sidewalk. If I wasn’t so damn agile, I would have gotten smashed. I had to dive out of the way, in a Custom Suit mind you, all stunt man style one night when I stepped out. It was pretty damn athletic if I may say so myself. Probably only an “in his prime” Allen Iverson, Floyd Mayweather Jr. or your humble author would have been able to avoid that hipster on a bike.

9. Hipsters VS Douchebags. I thought Montreal would be 100% hipster. But there were plenty of Douchebags too. Who would have known?

10. Construction. There is mad Corruption in the Construction industry in Montreal. It won’t affect you though.

11. Cabs. Like many cities on the globe, the cab drivers in Montreal are pretty retarded. You have to know where you are going, because the cab drivers don’t. And they try to drive you up St. Laurent all the time as well. Learn to use Rue Berri. Way quicker and more smooth.

12. Nightlife Districts. There are mad sections of Montreal with great areas to go out at night or get a grind on. Probably, 10 different “districts” that I could discover. Pretty amazing for a city of Montreal’s size. Especially when you consider a large West Coast city like San Diego has like 2 streets that you can party on.

13. French Language. Speaking French no doubt helps your cause. But it can also confuse girls when you tell them you are from California and then you can speak French. A couple of girls thought I was from Montreal and I was lying to them or something. It was not catastrophic, but something for a G to keep in mind.

14. Terraces. It’s all about Terraces in Montreal in summer. Find them. Live them. Love them. Spark up smokes on them. Swoop at them. I did.

15. Smoking. People in Montreal puff grits. Those gross images on cigarettes to deter smoking don’t work at all.

16. Perfect sized City. Montreal is really the perfect sized city. You can walk most of it, or take a 10 minute subway ride and be anywhere you want. Smooth.

17. Toronto. People in Montreal hate Toronto. I mean really hate it. Say you do too. Trust me.

18. Girls. The girls in Montreal are mad fly. However, they are not as easy as I thought on my first trip. I will explain more later, but there are plenty of thin, well dressed, high heel wearing, French accented dope girls to keep any International Playboy sedated. There are some good mixes. Black girls. Lebanese girls. Asian girls. Russian girls. Italian girls. Irish girls. Dark haired, blue eyed French girls. French Moroccan girls. I like them all. I regulated every shade of that *ss. On the real. Really developed an addiction to the French Moroccan girls. I may go to Morocco soon.

19. Partying. Partying in Montreal is fun as f*ck. You can go out seven nights a week there. Drugs are easy to come by, or at least they were easy for me to “sniff out”, so to speak. I almost got myself into trouble actually. But I am The G. I know what I am doing.

*Not everyone from those places is weesh of course. There are tons of cool cats from those places. I am just saying the people that visit Montreal from those places are weesh. Fair enough?

Montreal Street Game Moves

Montreal Street Game Moves

It is no secret that I love Montreal.

And it’s no secret that I hate the rain.

But a dope thing about Montreal when it rains is that there are fly girls in the doorways of buildings smoking when you walk around.

This makes Street Game in Montreal child’s play for a smooth, young, dashing, sharply dressed, Cash rich, International Playboy, like your humble author who smokes mad cancer sticks.

Just use The Greatest Opener of All Time and it’s Game On like Vietnam.

Somebody Down There Hates Me

» 15 November 2011 » In Guide » 4 Comments

Somebody Down There Hates Me

Over at The G Manifesto, we try to focus on the positive aspects of The Life of an International Playboy. You know, the Custom Suits, the Travel, the Fly Girls, the Nightclubs, the Smoking, the Boxing, the Racetracks, the Drugs, the Booze, the CASH, the Grinds, the Topless Beaches, and the overall style of being a Gentleman of Leisure.

However, as the most prolific writer on The International Playboy Lifestyle on the Internet, I feel compelled to let younger up-and-coming G’s on the rise know about some of the downsides of The Life.

When you choose this Life (or more realistically, this Life chooses you) you take some heavy beatings.

Also, you will have a tough time relating to people outside the Life (which is almost everyone).

Even more treacherous though, is the jealousy and envy that will be coming from your “friends”, your camaradas and enemies.

Don’t let it get you down, young G.

Keep punching. And look out for number one.

Success is a great revealer; you really get to know who stands with you and who doesn’t.

Because, a thug changes, and love changes and best friends become strangers.

The Greatest Opener of All Time

» 25 May 2011 » In Game, Girls, Nightlife, Style » 14 Comments

The Greatest Opener of All Time

We have already gone over The Greatest Pick up Line of All Time.

Roosh, who you might know from such books as Bang Colombia, is in the middle of a saga over at his blog called Gheridge (Gheridge Part One, Gheridge Part 2, Gheridge Part 3) reminded me how I have never posted The Greatest Opener of All Time.

Here is it is:

“Do you have a light?”

It is almost amazing how well it works; Day Game, Night Game, Street Game, Beach Game, any type of Game. It’s pure multi-purpose.

In fact, I just used it to meet my future ex in Miami Beach.

The old-school G’s figured out this stuff a long time ago.

No need to re-invent the wheel.

Ricardo Mayorga: On How to Talk Sh*t

» 08 March 2011 » In Boxing, Dope, Guide, People, Style » 3 Comments

Ricardo Mayorga: On How to Talk Sh*t

Talking Sh*t really is an artform.

Learn how its done by one of the best of all time, G Manifesto Hall of Fame Member, Ricardo Mayorga:

(Who happens to be fighting another G Manifesto Hall of Fame Member Miguel Cotto, soon).

Only one thing is better than smoking cigarettes at a press conference:

Smoking in the ring after winning a world title and saying F*ck You to a state where smoking is all but illegal:

(And smoking a cigarette after swooping a Brazilian Model of course).

In other news, Simon Black breaks down the War on Drugs:

“Fighting a multi-decades war against plants is just a dumb idea, ranking up there with other such gems as spending our way out of recession, borrowing our way out of debt, and invading other countries to reduce hatred against America.”

Travel Tips for Americans

» 07 March 2011 » In G Manifesto, Girls, Guide, Style, Travel » 7 Comments

Travel Tips for Americans

Traveling has become a real drag lately. Or I should say the “process” of traveling has really become a drag. Here are some tips for Americans to make traveling more enjoyable for all involved.

Go easy on the carry-ons

I know that Airlines sometimes lose bags, but everyone needs to start going easy on the carry-ons. Or at least people need to go easy on carry-ons if they can’t handle them. (If you can’t lift your bag into an overhead, check it. This is more directed at men, women and the elderly are excused). Personally, I always check my bags. It keeps me more agile for swooping girls in airports.

Fat-Free Flights

Ok, so we now have smoke-free flights. Now that Obesity is the #1 killer in America, and with Obesity rates in our Country hitting something like 95%, it would only make sense if we had Fat–People-Free flights. Right?

Dressing sharp

In the good old days, people used to dress with style and elegance when they traveled. Today, as we all know, it’s a real slob fest. It’s embarrassing. If I see one more girl in Ugg boots and sweats or another fool in a “hipster fedora”, I may take down a plane myself. Recently, I was on a flight where there were three weesh Twenty-something American girls in, get this, Pajamas. And it was a weesh connecter from the Midwest to the East Coast. It wasn’t like we were flying to Macau to chill with the Ho family or something.

Please, have some respect for yourself, and Dress Sharp.

I honestly think when people in the future look back to the fall our country; they are going to trace it to the loss of freedom (ie smoking bans, TSA) and loss of self-respect (people dressing like slobs).

And don’t even get me started on Stewardesses today.

How it should be:

New Anti-Tobacco Report: Question What The Government Tells You

» 09 December 2010 » In Guide, People, Style » 2 Comments

New Anti-Tobacco Report by U.S. Surgeon-General Dr. Regina Benjamin

If you like The G Manifesto, fill out this quick G Manifesto Survey

A new Anti-Smoking report was just released:

Cigarette smoke causes immediate damage to the lungs and to DNA, and President Barack Obama’s administration will make stop- smoking efforts a priority, federal health officials said on Thursday.

Smoking hurts not only the smokers, but people around them, and taxes, bans and treatment all must be used together to help get smoking rates down, U.S. Surgeon-General Dr. Regina Benjamin said in a report on smoking.

“The chemicals in tobacco smoke reach your lungs quickly every time you inhale causing damage immediately,” Benjamin said in a statement.

“Inhaling even the smallest amount of tobacco smoke can also damage your DNA, which can lead to cancer.”

Source

Seems like more over-the-top scare tactics by our government.

A couple of questions:

Does this look like someone you should be taking “health” advice from?

I wonder how involved the makers of smoking cessation drugs ie Big Pharma were involved in that study?

Doesn’t it seem that smoking traitor Obama has aged a lot since he quit smoking?

Isn’t this former Surgeon General that told us not to smoke the same guy that was pitching us on Kentucky Fried Chicken?

Question everything the government tells you.

Michael Mason on Rollerblading

Michael Mason on Rollerblading

Click Here for The G Manifesto’s Gentleman’s Club Report

Click Here 007 Lifestyle – Living Like James Bond!

One of my friends recently sent me this and it reminded me of a little story from back in the day:

(Side note: I haven’t really been up on the Most Interesting Man in the World thing, I don’t watch a lot of TV. However, the cat looks exactly like one of my friend’s Fathers who is a heavy Old-School G in his own right.)

Back when I was a young proto-type G, my running partner and I were walking down the Mission Beach Boardwalk at the beginning of summer, probably high on Chronic.

We were just rolling (and I don’t mean rollerblading or Beans, either, we were just walking), spitting Game at beach girls, slapping five with Bill Walton and Eek-A-Mouse riding by on bikes (as they often did in those days), and smoking grits. I think we were going to pick up a new stick at Liquid Foundation or something.

Just another day in the life.

All of a sudden, thru the crowd, a weesh rollerblader, out of control, came barreling into my running partner. My running partner, who always had quick reactions, and put up his elbows to “block” the rollerblader just as they collided.

The rollerblader got the worst of the collision by far. He took my droogs elbow on the chin and was KO’d flat on his back.

Then the funniest thing happened:

Everyone on the boardwalk started cheering.

What did I do?

I just lit up another smoke and kept walking.

Second Hand Smoking, Sports and Spain

» 17 August 2010 » In Style, Travel » 1 Comment

Second Hand Smoking, Sports and Spain

If Second Hand Smoking is so bad for you, how come Spain won every major sporting event this summer (Wimbledon, FIFA World Cup and Tour de France)?

The 2006 smoking ban made a non-smoking area mandatory in bars and restaurants of more than 100 square metres in size. Any smaller establishments were allowed to choose whether or not to ban smoking. Most chose not. In fact, of the 350,000 hospitality venues in Spain, less than 45,000 have banned smoking completely.

Thank God for Spain.
