Love.Hater.

“If I don’t like it I don’t like it, that don’t mean that I’m hating…” ~ Common “The Sixth Sense” Like Water For Chocloate

I get called a hater all the time.  And well, me and Reggie Noble?  We’ll be dat.

Now I can’t in good consciousness refer to myself as a hater.  That makes no sense.  For one, I’m too sexxy (for this shirt) for that.  For b, what exactly is a hater anyway?

I’ve always viewed haters as those assholes who came up with asinine reasons for not liking something or knocking somebody down.  You know that bullsh*t like, “Beyonce looks like a robot version of Brak from Space Ghost.”

That’s just not true.

Or even better, my favorite hater to want to slap the monkeyshine sh*t out of:  the person who just can’t be happy for anybody.  You know this dude very well.  Somebody gets a promotion and he’s on some, “he probably tossed a few salads to get to the top” type stuff.  True or not, that’s hateration at its finest.

Tyra Banks on the season finale of ANTM last night?  Not at her finest.  Word to the wise, my ebony sisters, dirty blond wigs mixed with the dresses from East Hell makes you look a gay metrosexual moose with a wig on that smokes Newports and only drinks Zima out of a shot glass.

Now see, that could be construed as hating, except…it’s totally true.

See, that’s not hating.

Well, anyway, this got me to thinking about stuff I’ve been accused of hating on.  And quite possilby it’s true.  There are things and people I just don’t “get” and in my lack of “getting it” I tend to make known my disdain for such things, which can be construed as hating.

So f*ck it.  Call me a hater.  Hell, call me what you want but don’t call me on my Sidekick.

I have an iPhone, beeyotch.

So, without further ado, things that Panama Jackson just doesn’t get and “hates” on:

Drake – I honestly don’t understand the hype behind this cat.  Sure he can rap.  Whoopty damn do.  Sure he can sing.  Whoopy damn do.  He is about as interesting to me as Soulja Boy is deep.  Read:  not very.  Plus, his entire rap style is Kanye’s…except, Kanye is WAY more entertaining than he is.  The funny thing about Drake is that it seems like the whole world fell in love with him at the same time.  In one two week span, I got no less than 20 emails, IMs, texts, and phone calls on some, “have you heard of Drake?”  Yes, bitch, I have.  And no I’m not feeling him.  I’d rather go watch a puma screw an oddly named IKEA appliance than listen to So Far Gone again.

(Suggestion:  Now if you want to hear that good raw hiphop, then I suggest you check out Diamond District’s “In The Ruff” album.  Been on repeat for the past three weeks. Real.Hip.Hop, dawg.)

Twitter – I’m on twitter right now trying to understand it.  Lots of folks are following me which is a shame because I update like every other other day.  And for no reason and with nothing interesting to say for real.  If you really want to holler at the good Reverand Petey Jakes, hit me on AIM or GChat or something.

Basically, tweet deez.

Panama – Ole wacksauce second tier bloggin’ a** ninja.

Hill Harper – He’s never seen a bad script he wouldn’t jump on and yet for some reason, women swoon over this cat like he’s Hollywood Will Smith and sh*t.  He hasn’t done anything of real accomplishment aside from graduating from college and going to school with Obama and writing a book for women (I think).  You know who else wrote a book for women?  Iceberg Slim.

Skinny jeans – “I can’t wear skinny jeans cuz my knot to thick”  I have no earthly idea why grown ass men thing wearing denim tights is the way to go but there’s a whole lot of buttchex looking cats running around influencing our youth.

Tyler Perry movies – Mostly because they suck.

OJ Da Juiceman – Sike.  I totally get this one.  He’s talented and makes me believe in myself.

Katt Williams – Mostly because he’s really not funny in his standup.  Actually, it’s ALL because he’s not funny in his standup.

I think that’s enough of Panama’s dislikes for now.  So my good friends here at the VSB.com HQ, what are some nouns that other people seem to love but you just ain’t feeling and get accused of hating on?

-VSB P aka THE ARSONIST aka TANGLE JIG P aka YOUR FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD 3

Panama Jackson

Panama Jackson is pretty fly for a light guy. He used to ship his frito to Tito in the District, but shipping prices increased so he moved there to save money. When he's not saving humanity with his words or making music with his mouth, you can find him at your mama's mama's house drinking her fine liquors. Most importantly, he believes the children are our future.

    I am with you on the Twitter thing. It’s for losers. Sorry one and all. I can take the heat.

    Others:

    Jennifer Hudson: Not. feeling. her. at. all. I did not think her Star Spangled Banner was great. Nor did I think her Dream Girls performance was great. Sure…she blew Bey out the water, acting wise. But is that that hard to do?

    Idris. My feelings about the crust have been made known.

    Carol’s Daughter. NONE of her products do anything for me. Waste of my money! Infusium leave in, Garnier conditioner and conditioning styling cream and Neutrogena Deep Conditioner work better. And it’s…gasp…cheaper.

    house music. Prefer true 70s disco.

    making friends/giving someone a chance. I could care less about it. I am never rude but I can tell if someone is an a$$ wipe in about 10 minutes. If my gut says you ain’t cool, I don’t extend the energy to get to know you. And I think I have been right 100% of the time. Now, my instinct on who IS cool is far less refined and I’ve been wrong numerous times.

    life long friendships. Some people ain’t meant to be around forever.

AND i had crunchy hair. i could have gotten the same results with some black gel. for cheaper might i add.

          sorry i just hate all these “natural” haircare products that are preying upon us.

          im also not a fan of purchasing things from online. me, this chick right here, she’s all about instant gratification, and taking ish back to the store if it doesn’t work the way i like want it to. online stores, not so much

          i don’t believe they sell it in stores but you can get it from one of their salons or salons who have it in stock. otherwise i guess it must be be purchased online.

      I really WANT to love me some Jennifer Hudson…but I can’t. *sigh* Loved her in “Dreamgirls” but nada else.

      I’ve only purchased one product by Carol’s Daughter. This bronzing cream stuff. Waste of $20. Used it once and never again.

      House music makes my ears bleed.

    I am with you on the Twitter thing. It’s for losers. Sorry one and all. I can take the heat.

    Others:

    Jennifer Hudson: Not. feeling. her. at. all. I did not think her Star Spangled Banner was great. Nor did I think her Dream Girls performance was great. Sure…she blew Bey out the water, acting wise. But is that that hard to do?

    Idris. My feelings about the crust have been made known.

    Carol’s Daughter. NONE of her products do anything for me. Waste of my money! Infusium leave in, Garnier conditioner and conditioning styling cream and Neutrogena Deep Conditioner work better. And it’s…gasp…cheaper.

    house music. Prefer true 70s disco.

    making friends/giving someone a chance. I could care less about it. I am never rude but I can tell if someone is an a$$ wipe in about 10 minutes. If my gut says you ain’t cool, I don’t extend the energy to get to know you. And I think I have been right 100% of the time. Now, my instinct on who IS cool is far less refined and I’ve been wrong numerous times.

    life long friendships. Some people ain’t meant to be around forever.

    I’m not a h*ter, I just roast a lot.

    iRoast:

    *Hairhats – I’m sorry but weaves makes me scowl. Every 5 mins, a horse (probably in Detroit) loses its tail. *cues violins*

    *House of Dereon – The clothes are tackier than a bed of thorns. Mama Tina needs not design jack but red lipstick (she loves em)

    *Napoleon Dynamite – All the hype around the film. When I finally watched it, I MAY have chuckled once. BOOOO!

    *Halle Berry in “Monster’s Ball” – Wackness! How she won an Oscar for that was beyond me. She was in greater movies and got 0 props (see: Losing Isaiah). The “Make me feel good” scene made me cringe. I averted my eyes till it was over

    *Asher Roth – White boy with slightly clever words that he SPEAKS (not raps. That fool just talks) to a so-so beat. Now he’s famous. WOMP! Jeebs be some musical standards for us all.

        @iloVEGrits, exsqueeze me, didn’t you like her in “Jungle Fever” as the crackhead with the foul mouth. I love that movie and I saw it when I was about 12 or 13 on HBO (what was my mom thinking, lol) and she scared me because I thought her and Samuel L. Jackson were crackheads for real (I know I was a sheltered child). This is her best role that I’ve seen her in and she wasn’t too bad in B.A.P.S. (I know I’m not PC but that movie was so wrong but so right because it was so funny).

      Napoleon Dynamite was comedic stupidity that I found to be hilarious.. not everyone liked it.. but I did..

      asher roth is a cool white rapper.. he’s no eminem, but he’s ok..

      LMFAO @ hair hats.. weaves are sometimes needed.. I know women with really thinning hair and if it wasn’t for the weave they’d really be “bald head scallywags ain’t got no hair in the back”
      I’ve worn my fair share of wigs and weaves.. and sometimes they are a needed accessory to an already fabulous outfit that couldn’t be achieved. its not that bad

      • iloVEGrits

        @Liryc,

        agreed. Weaves are okay if they are good weaves. And if you are not a repeated weave wearer.

        Since I frown upon sistas who frown upon girls with natural hair, I try not to talk about weave lovers, unless they are Bey or Tyra (because they are repeat offenders). To each his own.

      Halle made that movie so that 2520 would give her the Oscar. Nobody better doubt that.

      Both Vanessa Williams and Angela Bassett turned that film down!

      On the real, I really couldn’t take her seriously about how she tried dating Black men b4 her current mate (who is definitely a fine specimen) and couldn’t find one who would treat her right…If you’re judgment is so lapsed that you’d degrade yourself and women by picking a role like that, who really thinks you know how to point out a good guy?
      (I’m not blaming her for whatever trials she went through, but after a while, like Kat said, “You gotta figure out what it is about yourself that keeps attracting ain’t sh!t n!ggas”)*

      Good analysis of what that film was really about and it’s potential societal impact:
      http://metaphilm.com/index.php/detail/monsters_ball/

      *Sorry, I’ve been ranting as of late. I guess, as much as I try to like her, Halle is one of those who will eternally grind my gears because of that role.

      • temps

        @Lili, here here I am so sick f hearing well to do Americans crying about not being able to find a good mate-fools made more money in one decade than my grandmoms did in their entire life and have the nerve to make an issue out of not being able to find a good black man…We are out there but there are more excuses as to NOT date us than there are good men. On SBM.net some ditzy chick said the “more we men read the weaker our sex is” …wtf is that!?

        Oh so you want a good man but not one that reads so much cuz it might lead to ED…ONLY a jaded overpaid American women would reach so far as to say something so lame…now peep them Mexicans DIRT POOR and yet they in most case I’ve seen ARE MARRIED do you realize Mexico has been in a recession since most of us have been alive? Yet boneheaed American women heard Halle (a wealthy woman) BS and actually thought “see told you so”…whatever! Her ass got homes on both coast and in Europe..her ass just like white guys

No way.

        If P Ewing woulda been out of those playoffs in the 90’s Jordans Bulls woulda smoked the Knicks in four easy but with equal comp Jordan had to fight to win those series-win or not this series says SO MUCH about Kobe…to think he told Artest “you flopped” yet Artest showed him the bloody bit tongue he got courtesy of Kobes elbow. Remember Jordan got his ass kicked by them Bad Boys (Detroit stand up..RIP Mr Daly)
        from those playoff series he learned to win you must RUN OVER your opponent not assume he’ll just get out of the way cuz you know its the fourth quarter.

    *Air Yeezies: They are men stilettos, with those high *ss soles. I know Kanye wanted to get some height by designing some thick shoes but male chanclattas are not the answer. They look like Sketchers.

    *Gladiator Sandals – Some are cute but a majority look like they would be GREAT for 400 B.C. Them Air Foot Voyages just look outta place in the city. Ain’t nobody walking no deserts. Let my people go, and let gladiator sandals die a red (sea) death. Say no to Air Christs.

    I’m just saying… iRoast because iLove

      @Luvvie,
      Yea…Ed Hardy was hot like, 3.5 yrs ago, when it was somewhat exclusive because practically no one new about it.

      Now I see that mess plastered around Macys! Anything that was exclusive in tiny, trendy boutiques and is now being mass-produced for (mid-level) department stores is no longer not.

        @Lili,

        I disagree. Ed Hardy was NEVER hot. Ever.

      @Luvvie, We call the Gladiator Sandals, the Air Disciples. Nothin that the 12 disciples were rocking should be worn in 2009. I know trends come back in style but this is getting outlandish

      Co-sign on Ed Hardy and Gladiator sandals.

      Ed Hardy because those shirts look like they’re having seizures. Gladiator sandals because I don’t wanna look like Russell Crowe and this ain’t the biblical days.
