The Cypher Ave Fictional Series that Never Was
Oh the memories. The Cypher Ave creators had such hopes and dreams for the site. Nick Delmacy wanted a space for Black non-heterosexual men to chill and vibe. While I wanted this shit to be on the cover of Black Enterprise. Well… one of us failed but 10 years later Cypher Avenue continues to be a place where Black men can come and speak freely without repercussions.
Amongst our blooming but now M.I.A. podcasts was a stand-out from Nicky “Where the Bottoms At” Delmacy. My nigga was attempting to drop a F.U.B.U fictional series that sounded dope as fuk. But kats didn’t know this bloggin-vloggin-pod’castin shit was cumbersome while attempting to hold down multiple jobs to pay the bills. Regardless my homie dropped 11 + minutes of some fire story telling.
Even back then he knew the task was hard, which is why he was soliciting for squad members to help with the reading materials. Uh… yeah… that went nowhere… just like this fictional series. I can’t knock my dude for trying though. He deleted it off of YouTube but it’s still available on this site. Check out the reposting of his production below but also feel free to check out the original details concerning the post from 7 years ago.
Damn, I wish there was more of this!
I can understand it not going any further, since you didn’t get enough people contacting you for your original planned direction. But, I wish you went ahead and read it yourself, just like this. That voice Nick! You played three different parts (Well two, but one character at different points in his life), and you did great job. Professional. The music. The world building. I felt like i was the age I was in 2001. I don’t know if that makes sense.
I can see how it could have been too exhausting to do it all yourself. Probably would have taken 7 years, to find the time! Collaboration does help boost energy and creativity. Such a missed opportunity.
I finally got a chance to listen – I liked it, the set-up was good and tight. I wish there were more to listen to.
