Damon At The Schomburg In Harlem, VSB In NYC, And “WingChick”

VSB

 

Couple things going on in the VSB world that we wanted to let you all know about:

1. Tonight, Damon will be at The Schomburg Center in Harlem for a reading of The Meaning of Michelle, where he’ll be joined on stage by Veronica Chambers (the anthology’s editor), Rebecca Carroll, and Caroline Clark. We’ll read excerpts from the book, talk about the Obama’s impact and legacy, and then, at the end of the night, we plan to join hands with everyone there and sing a version of Cam’ron’s “Fuck You” directed at Donald Trump.

Also, speaking of Trump, here’s Damon’s Facebook status from earlier today:

Just landed at Laguardia. In NYC for a reading of The Meaning of Michelle at the Schomburg tonight. Been sitting on the plane for 15 minutes now because of some sort of delay. And I look out my window, and lo and behold is a fucking Trump plane.

I don’t know if this is why we can’t get off the plane yet, but I’m perfectly fine with blaming every inconvenience and annoyance I experience — a plane delay, a toothache, a sleet storm, a flatulent dog, a batch of too soft chicken wings, a batch of words escaping Zoe Saldana’s mouth, etc — on this nigga for the next four years.

2. Friday evening, Panama will join Damon in NYC, putting VSB together in one place like Voltron, and to celebrate this momentous occasion, they’re holding a happy hour at Latitude Bar & Grill (Located at 783 8th Avenue — between 47th and 48th) at 5pm. Come through and shit if you can.

3. VSB’s own Tonja Renée Stidhum (aka “Cheekie”) has created a hilarious webseries called WingChick — about the trials and tribulations of a woman who’s the perpetual homegirl. She’s looking to raise $5,000 through her Indiegogo campaign, so please support!

      Is this why he was trending on facebook today?

    • Cleojonz

      Please tell me he didn’t actually allow himself to be filmed/photographed this way and that this was creative photoshoppery. He can’t need the money this badly!

      • cyanic

        He’s a c o o n.

      • Mary Burrell

        He does the commercial with the Popeye’s Chicken lady too.

        • Cleojonz

          Yes, and that was bad enough. This brings it to a whole other level of wrongness.

          • Mary Burrell

            lol ?

    • Negro Libre

      This ninja’s publicist/agent must hate him lol.

      • cyanic

        That ninja is a happy smiling and grinning ninja for mistress and master.

  • The Resident Mexican

    Question.

    How long are y’all planning on staying at Latitude? The wife and I are driving from Philly so if y’all ain’t staying past 10 then we gonna have to meet y’all at another time.

    • Damon Young

      I’m gonna be out by 7. But I think Panama will be there longer.

      • The Resident Mexican

        Damon,

        That’s fair. But the reason we coming out is cause my I Love Bougie Black Girls shirt is shredded. I was gonna ask where I can score a new one cause my wife bought me my first one and I can’t have the shirt die without a new one.

        Any help is appreciated.

        Also, we live in Pittsburgh so we gotta hang out so I can buy you a drink.

          • The Resident Mexican

            @LMNOP,

            Thank you. I looked on their website a few months ago and didn’t see the I Love Bougie Black Girls t-shirt. Good looking out.

            • LMNOP

              There’s a link from VSB.

      • Damn. I’ll have to miss you then. I can’t get out there sooner than 8. Grrr…

  • cyanic
    • Cleojonz

      OMG I hardly remembered him with hair. Cancer is the devil.

      • cyanic

        His hair thinned prior to cancer.

        • Cleojonz

          I know that! That’s why I said I didn’t even remember him with hair its been so long he hasn’t had any.

          I was just referencing the fact that cancer is how he died.

    • nillalatte

      I had no idea that man’s name, but I knew his face, but not that face. LL Cool J posted a very touching tribute to him on FB. :(

      • Val

        Is that the guy from NCIS LA?

        • Lea Thrace

          yep

        • nillalatte

          Yes.

      • Cranberry05

        I said the same thing…

  • Mary Burrell

    This sounds like a grand affair. I will watch South Side With You and and have some brown liquor.

  • It will be nice to see all the beautiful women of VSB.

    • Also, can none of the men of VSB be creepy?

      • Tam

        ??

      • Kas loves Jamaican Breakfast

        Your phrasing is odd. Sounds like you are requesting the VSB men to be creepy.

      • NonyaB?

        Which ones were creepy the last time you met up?

  • L8Comer

  • PDL – Cape Girl Shero

    Off topic: I’m just glad HAHN upgraded to Samsung phones and trashed the cheesy track phones they had last season.

          • Kas loves Jamaican Breakfast

            We must dream differently.

            • fedup

              Have a seat, Sir.

    • nillalatte

      I was like, what? What’s on the West Coast. Nah, man, they don’t like us out here. We all Blue states and legal weed. LOL ;)
