BSNYC Friday Etcetera And So Forth

In yesterday's post I included the video for "Disrespectful" by BlocBoi Fame, which has been "blowing up" all over the "motherfucking Internet."  Here it is again, "and shit:"



If nothing else, this video made me realize that I am hopelessly out of touch with the youth, since when I was young we had respectful, socially aware rap songs like "Fuck tha Police" and "We Want Some Pussy."  Even before that, we used to breakdance in middle school, and I can assure you there is nothing sadder than watching a bunch of Jewish kids rolling around on the floor and grabbing their crotches.  Actually, it's a lot like watching a dog scratching his ass on a carpet.

Therefore, in an attempt to better understand today's popular culture I used the "motherfucking Internet" to help parse BlocBoi Fame's name, and I was surprised to learn the following:

A "boi" is (generally) the younger male who prefers older men, and is the "boi" in a "daddy and boi" dating, relationship, or sexual situation, where "boy" and "boi", respectively, are used to differentiate between someone who is underage, and someone who just identifies as the younger who wants or needs someone older. In this context, "boi" can be masculine or effeminate, or anywhere along that spectrum, and some males identify as a "boi" well beyond their 20s, and especially so long as they are involved with older men. Often, though not always, a "boi" prefers the submissive role.

That's not at all where I thought he (or that OutKast guy for that matter) was going with that name.  Actually, it's probably not where BlocBoi thought he was going with it either, and he probably wouldn't appreciate my pointing out this amusing coincidence.

By the way, I also learned from the "motherfucking Internet" that BlocBoi Fame may have totally "bitten" another rapper named "YngRobb," who's "Speedin On My Fixie" preceded BlocBoi Fame's own fixie-themed hip-hop effort by at least six months:



Hopefully YngRobb responds to the affront by challenging BlocBoi to a combination rap battle/trackstand competition, which they should hold in Portland, since it would be tremendously entertaining to see how quickly the entire population of that city flees when YngRobb and BlocBoi arrive with their respective entourages.  I'd especially love to see that morning's BikePortland post:


Presumably Portland has an air raid siren reserved for exactly this sort of situation.

Speaking of Portland, a reader tells me people there are upset because they're cutting down a tree to make a bike path:


Wow, deciding between saving a tree and building a bike lane?  That's like the Portland "Sophie's Choice."  If you ask me though the solution is obvious:


But what do I know?  I'm no arborist.

And now, I'm pleased to present you with a quiz.  As always, study the item, think, and click on your answer.  If you're right, great, and if you're wrong you'll see Chinese crash porn.

Thanks very much for reading, ride safe, and if you see any trees, ride through them.

Wow, my communist canukistan brain read BlocBoi as "wood block" (bloc bois). I must have learned something sleeping through all those French classes. Your definition is mildly more disturbing.

Buffalo Bill said...

The devil went down to Georgia, he was looking for a soul to steal.
He was in a bind 'cos he was way behind and he was willin' to make a deal.
When he came across this young man sawin' on a cypress and playin' it hot.
And the devil jumped upon a hickory stump and said: "Boy let me tell you what:
"I guess you didn't know it, but I'm a cycle player too.
"And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.
"Now you play a pretty good cable, boy, but give the devil his due:
"I bet a lotus of gold against your soul, 'cos I think I'm better than you."
The boy said: "My name's Wolf and it might be a sin,
"But I'll take your bet, your gonna regret, 'cos I'm the best that's ever been."

Lone Wolf rosin up your bow and play your cycle hard.
'Cos hells broke loose in Georgia and the devil deals the cards.
And if you win you get this rhinestone lotus made of gold.
But if you lose, the devil gets your soul.

I had to replace my cables a week or so ago, and apparently missed a real opportunity by not having a violin bow around. I wonder if Universal Cycles has them under cable accessories.

Is that really a double occurrence of salmonella in less than 5 seconds in the Portland video? Once at 1:54 (the Cat 6 overtake) and then again at 1:55 (the overhead shot).

In both instances, there is a big arrow painted on the ground, pointing the opposite way.

the meaning of blockboi's name should come as no surprise. living on the Down Low is not some made up thing - a lot of black dudes are boning one another on the DL - especially really tough rapper types. That time spent in jail makes a man appreciate certain things about a man that a woman can't provide.

also accounts for the absurdly high rates of AIDS among young black men.

its absolutely true.

...personally , upon careful observation, i find russian crash porn to have a dark cinema verite quality that reveals the true angst of the russian psyche' whereas this recent wave of chinese crash videos bear more of a slapstick or even a somewhat chaplinesque sense of comedy about them...

Dear Leroy's Dog:
Since the Snob brought it up first, I have a question on dog behavior. He does a dance he calls the "Butt Drag" on my artisanal, locally sourced wool, hand woven, Oriental rug. I say he is flipping me off. What's a hipster to do?

leroy said...

Dear Mr. Anonymous 6:22 pm --

I posed your question to my dog and he responded:

"Excellent question. It's a common misperception that destructive canine behavior is a challenge to your alpha dog status. In fact, your four legged friend is merely adding to the value of your floor covering by distressing it in an organic and authentic manner. Think of it as the extra value inherent in a pair of pre-washed Levi's. It's just like that. But without the washing part.

"As for what you should do, Cheetos are always an appropriate way to say 'thank you'. That and not raising a fuss when he and his buddies clean out the fridge and leave a few spills in the course of their weekly Poker Night.

"Thank you for your inquiry."

(I can't believe he got fired from his advice column gig at the WSJ.)

Leroy - I know, right?? NOW who can tell me how to bet when I don't make my straight on the river?

OHOHOH! The boy has a friend who spent this week filming the latest Cheetos commercial. It involves a Cheetopult, which of course begs the question: How far can Cheetos fly? See? If he still had his advice column, yer dog could answer all of life's most important questions.

babble on said...

Ouch.

Plus he probably won't tell me to ride THROUGH the trees.

...non sequitur - non bicycle stuff...

...well...danica patrick handled herself nicely at the daytona 500 today despite all the crap the naysayers have tried to heap on her...

...last week, the woman took the pole position in prob'ly the most misogynist form of motorsport in the world, maintained her cool through hours of idiotic bullshit interviews, keep the focus needed to race at close to 200mph for 500 miles, basically stayed in the top 10 all day whilst staying out of trouble that took out a number of top names & although she ran the last few laps in 3rd position, she got shuffled back to 8th at the finish which may be attributed to a choice of drafting partner in the run for the line...

...bottom line...danica ran an awesome race in my book although i'd have loved to see her win, both for herself & to shut the pieholes of all the morons who aren't willing to give her the credit she deserves...
