Another convo I had regarding MFEST
Another person from the automotive world attesting to MFEST’s incompetence.
Earlier this year, Bimmerfest was set to occur on May 18, 2013.
MFEST had always taken place previously in May (2012) but this year, it had been scheduled for the exact weekend as Bimmerfest.
They changed it later on but a lot of people from both sides, MFEST’ers as well as Bimmerfest natives, were questioning MFEST, not Bimmerfest, about the date change. Bimmerfest had been around far longer than MFEST had and for this lack of pre-planning to have occurred was a revealing sign of the lack of awareness from the owners/creators/management at MFEST. Supposedly it was changed only after people brought it to their attention because they complained about not being able to go to both. Incompetence…?
My source went on to say that he has done work for someone “up there” within MFEST and that while their car is nice, it is not like the true car enthusiast’s. [I have stated this before but…] He went on to say that everything is taken care of; everything is paid for up-front with a blank check almost, there is no planning by the owner. “Think of it as here’s a black check, just make it unique and badass.”
They don’t know what’s in their car, and everything is just bolt-ons. Basically there’s nothing that can’t be bought by someone else with money, nothing that really sets it apart.
It’s amazing what one finds out from others when one just listens.
Totally fucked up today, and yesterday.
Smoked since I was sick and at home, thought it would put me to sleep.
Instead, I wake up late, still sick, I miss class, made a bad decision before I even walked into work, continued making bad decisions, and ended the shift early just to go home and kick it with a coworker. Going to stay in then because I’m still messed up….but at the least the GF came and took care of me. Got me food and soup….
Just really started to realize what I just did and it sucks…..it’s going to be a while for me to be in the managers’ favor again…..
