Old-School Hip-Hop Video of the Week-Halloween Edition

Wut's good folks!? It's Friday once again and todays video is a Halloween special. Since this holiday is known to bring some freaks out, we got a classic joint from Whodini called none other than...(drumroll...)"The Freaks Come Out At Night". Oh, and just a little fun fact for yall while you watch the video, look for a young (but still ugly) Jermaine Dupri. He dances in the beginning and it's kinda funny. Anywayz, hope yall enjoy it, and have a fun and safe Halloween! Peace.

They Said It, Not Us...Halloween Edition

So, Young Sumo, me, and 2 of our lady friends were walking into a restaurant to get something to eat. As we were passing cars in the parking lot, we saw one car that had a license plate that read "SRCTZN". I thought it was obvious, Young Sumo apparently isn't as hooked on phonics.

YS, in his infinite wisdom goes, "What does that say, 'circunsized?'"

(Um...First of all, that's not even a word, it's 'circumsized,' and I'd bet that you probably don't have a "mushroom tip," you filthy Philistine!)

ME: "It says "senior citizen. You dumbass."

Much love to Young Sumo, but he's evidence that sometimes, stereotypes aren't necessarily true...

Once again...THEY SAID IT, NOT US...

They Said It, Not Us

College has taught me 2 main things about other people, that:

1.) People are mean.


2.) People are stupid.

Since mean people suck, we think it's funnier to write about people being stupid. So we're adding a new wrinkle to our blog entittled, "They Said It, Not Us," in which we tell about instances where people say/do stupid things.

The other day I was talking to a friend about water, now, for all the intellligent people out there it goes without saying that water, chemically, is two parts Hydrogen, and one part Oxygen. This particular person apparently failed Chemistry. Here's the conversation...

Friend: "I like to water down my Kool-Aid. Add some of that H, Two, Zero."
Me: "What?"
Friend: "Yea, that H-20.

They said it, not us...


Slang Word of the Day

So we feel that it's our duty to "urbanize" White people and not-down Colored folk with the newest, and freshest slang.

Today's word is "No Homo."

"No homo" is a phrase that is often used after someone, inadvertantly or not, says and/or does something that can be viewed as "gay."

For example, Cyle got a haircut on Friday and I said to him, "Ay dog, your haircut looks nice, no homo." Thus nullifying any homosexual undertone.

For whatever reason, in today's society it is viewed as "not cool" or "weird" for a man to compliment his fellow man on his external appearance, or just on anything in general. "No homo" allows us to do this now. This allows me to compliment a fellow man on his appearance and watch "Brokeback Mountain" and "The Crying Game" without feeling "gay."

That being said, I'm gonna go watch "300" and admire Leonidas' homo.


P.S. We here @ "A Dime & A Nickel" do not discriminate against people regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, race, religion, quantity of baby's daddies and/or STD's. We celebrate and promote diversity. Please do not be offended, it is not our intention to do so. Heck, we didn't come up with the phrase...

Check Out This Article...

So, last Christmas break I was back home in SF when I heard that there was a shooting @ Sacred Heart, a Catholic, private high school where many of our friends attended. The victim, Terray "Tat" Rogers, was a father of one of the girl's on the team. Turns out, the daughter of the victim, Tierra Rogers, is one of the best high-school players in the country. Not only that, but Tat was working to help quell the incessant violence in the Hunters Point district of my hometown, San Francisco. Anywho, there was an article about it on, thought it was really interesting. Read the article here...

The Earthquake...19 Years Later

Today marks the 19th anniversary of the Loma Prieta Earthquake. While most people remember it as interrupting the World Series between the Oakland A's & the San Francisco Giants (BTW...what are the odds of there being a 6.9 earthquake in the Bay Area during a World Series in which the 2 local baseball teams are playing in? A million to one? A billion to one?), the quake was quite devastating. It killed 63 people, injured approximately 3,700 more, and caused $6 billion worth of damage. I was 2 @ the time, and all I remember is the ground shaking @ my Grandma's house, like walking in one of those "fun houses" where the floor moves from side-to-side as you run through it. Walking around like a drunk person as my Grandma ran towards me screaming hysterically. Anyone else remember it?

Old School Hip-Hop Video of the Week, 10/17: "Me, Myself,& I"-De la Soul

Aight, so every Friday to commemorate the end of the week, we're gonna hit y'all up w/ a Old-School Hip-Hop video. Like way back, like He-Man underwear, high-top fades, pump-up sneakers back. Like shit your older siblings danced to. Look forward to this every Friday. De la will lead us off...

"Me, Myself, & I"-De la Soul

P.S. Feel free to submit your own suggestions of what you wanna see next week for Old-School Hip-Hop Video of the Week.

Allow Ourselves to Introduce...Ourselves...?

I’m Cyle (the Black one) AKA “THA JEWELER,” AKA “ITIS MAN,” AKA “PETER DARKER,” AKA “MR. FREEZE,” AKA “TRON.” & I’m Anthony (not the Black one) AKA “The Reservoir Dog,” AKA “The Mexican Marauder,” AKA “Tony Lightning,” AKA “Dr. Bunsen Honeydew,” AKA “QUASIMODO,” AKA “Tony Sunshine,” AKA “Pretty Tony” (which then can be AKA’ed [yes, I made that into a verb, and yes, I put parentheses inside of parentheses] into “Pretty T., Pretty Tone, PT, P. Tony, & P. Tone.) We feel that aliases (or is it “alii?”) are very necessary to our blog.

We’re just two dudes that think we’re funnier, more interesting, and have more profound shit than most of the other blogs out there and feel like sharing that with all of Cyber Space.

Our blog is gonna have poetry, video clips, songs, recaps of our lives, and us ranting and raving about any and everything. We’ll have a bunch of new stuff on here throughout the week so keep coming to the site. We appreciate the love & support.

‘Til Next Time…

Cyle & Anthony…
