Yes ladies and gentlemen, today…yes today, we celebrate our 100th post!!!!
*screams and applause*
First off, we’d like to thank each and every one of you who venture to our beloved VSB.com site and also to everybody who comments here, whether you’ve commented once or a million times. Thank you a thousand times over. Without you all, we’d both have failed to live up to the legacy of Johnson and Randolph who lost their lives in 1913.
But thanks to you all, their memory lives on!
With that said, we’re also going to pass the 25,000 comment mark sometime today. And get this, neither of our mothers has left a single one. That, my friends, is an accomplishment. Just ask Hot Stylez, whose mothers are going to buy all of their albums that actually get sold.
So we’d like to do a few things here today in commemoration of our 100th post. And we’d also like to make a request or two:
1) We’d like for everybody who stops by to drop us a line and let us know where you’re from or something. Tell us something interesting about yourself. And yes this includes the long-timers because believe it or not, we plan to throw shindigs across the nation and it would help us to know where you all are. It doesn’t make any sense for us to throw that party in Butte, Montana, when nobody actually lives there…and by the way, we’re canceling that event, though the Butte Chamber of Commerce is going to be really upset. Besides…who doesn’t like to put on for their city???
For kicks…Panama puts on for Washington, DC, and The Champ puts on for the Pittsburgh aka the ‘Burgh.
2) We’d like you to go check out the t-shirt store we have opened. Now it doesn’t have all of the shirts yet, but we’re moving in the right direction, no? Check.It.Out. Buy one. Buy twelve. Our mothers? Definitely exhibiting major coppage. Be like Mike.
Also, here are the winners of the vsb.com t-shirt quote poll.
“And no you’re not overanalyzing, you’re just a woman.“—deviant
“Breed carefully people!“—the hostess
“black women are the bangingest“—the champ
“I am an asshole, and I am ok with that”—luvvie
“Smart b*tches have drama too”—goodeness
“its hard out here for an abstinent pimp“—Abcde A-Lexus
Now in real VSB form, we’d be remiss if we didn’t do something to commemorate this momentous occasion. So what we decided to do was create some awards for the people who keep us afloat by venturing to our dear VSB.com (we’re working on our alma mater right now, Ne-Yo’s writing it)…follow along…
The VSB.com 100 Post Anniversary Commentator Awards
the boris and idris memorial, to the person who consistently leaves the most panty-wetness inducing comments goes to: d*stroy, who also has the honor of being the father of the youngest vsb.com fan.
the stan award, which goes to the fan who most consistently goes above and beyond, is actually a two-way tie between ms. patterson and the wise diva, two women who, from emailing sample topics to relentlessly plugging us in their own circles, have done everything possible to allow the gospel of vsb.com to grow.
the goodeness corner award, for the most consistently outrageously entertaining comments, goes to, you guessed it, the goodeness herself…a woman who also has the distinct honor of receiving an award named after herself. good job and sh*t. 1st runner up, and probable 2009 winner: luvvie
the mike eric dyson award, for semi-coherent yet always compelling longwindedness goes to genius khan, who we’ve become convinced is either a mensa chapter president or an inmate at leavenworth
the wes mantooth award for best screenname is a three-way tie between eff yo couch, tits mcgee, and westindianarchie
the krs-one award for never missing a single hip-hop reference no matter how obscure or randomly placed in a post goes to miss t-lee who’s made panama strive to throw as much random hip-hop into posts as possible and start to name drop more songs than The Game.
the Yolanda Springer Povich award for consistently managing to ask questions and approach topics like a talk-show host who’s trying to incite a riot and simultaneously spread knowledge to the masses goes to the hostess, who always finds a way to bring some insightful and personal twist to the random f*ckery that goes down here at vsb.com
the john witherspoon in boomerang award for telling it like it is goes to Deviant, who is ALSO up for the award for the most interesting method of procuring women with the hand-on-ti**y method which to date hasn’t worked for 98 percent of all those who’ve tried it
the rico suave award for getting more than enough women hot enough to try to locate his nightclub in Washington DC so they can find out if his bark is as good as his bite…and vice versa goes to Big Buck who can also tell you exactly how to talk yourself into a nightclub, assuming you’re a hot chick
the gustav harsford award for feeling like family goes to Monk who’s been reading both of us and commenting for so long that we’re either paying him or he must be family that we feel like we know the brotha, he also managed to slaughter all opponents back in the day during the blog rap battles at panama’s site…thanks Monk
We’d like to once again thank you all for helping make VSB.com what we are. We do the best we can to provide interesting topics but the fact is that as much is gleaned from the comments as our actual posts themselves. As we push forward and continue to move towards the 200th and 300th post and so on and so forth we hope that you all stick along for the ride and help us continue to grow.
You know what to do in the comments (see above), and if you have any awards you want to nominate someone for, shout them out.
Very Smart Brothas (and Liz)
