“Very Smart Brothas” Pilot Part I

Over the past few months, we’ve screened our pilot episode for “Very Smart Brothas” in New York, Los Angeles, and Washington, DC. But now, we’re doing what we’ve intended to do from jump, bring it to the people who helped make it all possible.

We–well, Andrea Thornton (Solo Journey Productions) and Damon—wrote a 22-minute pilot that was filmed, produced, and edited in Los Angeles by Solo Journey Productions (Earl Bolden, Andrea Thornton). I was a consulting producer (I consulted and was on music duty and sh*t) and we had a VSBer, Derek Bellard, as an executive producer as well.

We’re going to break into three parts. Today, we’re dropping Part I and in the near future we’ll drop the subsequent parts…because reasons.

We’d like to thank everybody who donated and helped make this project a reality. Much like everything we do here at VSB, none of it is possible without the community that we have here.

Let us know what you think! Can you “see” Damon and I in the characters? What’s the 411, hon?

Ultimately, enjoy and thank you for sleepwalking.



eventbriteuglyWelcome to the REMINISCE UGLY SWEATER HOLIDAY PARTY AND TOY DRIVE! This Saturday, December 7, 2013 at Liv Nightclub, we’re bringing you REMINISCE with a twist of good deeds and fashion behindness.

We’re having an ugly sweater party in the spirit of Christmahanukwanzaakah and we’re doing a Toy Drive as well to help those who are less fortunate than we are during this holiday season. But it’s a toy drive with a twist. The people from Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas are sweetening the pot a little bit, so the first 50 people to donate a toy will receive a Madea Christmas Prize Pack which will include lots of goodies and free movie tickets. And a free shot! If you do good for somebody else, Santa will look out for you.

As always, it’s FREE BEFORE 11PM w/RSVP and there’s an OPEN BAR from 930-1030 and NO DRESS CODE though ugly sweaters are highly encouraged! With “Supa Qool” DJ Quartermaine on 1s an 2s and Mr. 2Oh2 on the hosting duties, we’re gonna throwback to the 90s like you ain’t never seent before!

See you next Saturday and RSVP Link below!
