The Very Smart Takeover

I spent the entire 4th of July grilling and mixing drinks for a crew of Mexican plankers and n*gger scientists, so I wasn’t able to write last night. And by “I spent the entire 4th of July grilling and mixing drinks for a crew of Mexican plankers and n*gger scientists” I mean “I was drunk between 2:30 pm and (approximately) now.”

But, although we don’t have anything new for VSB today, Panama and I have been quite busy expanding our writing horizons, and I thought I’d take some time today to share a few of the moves we’ve made to help make this VSB takeover complete.

First, I wanted to let you all know that I’ll be writing for The Good Men Project on a semi-regular basis. My first article there, “Eligible, Black, Male, and Hopelessly Single” — which shed light on the fact that there are actually “eligible” black men out there who genuinely want to be in a relationship (with a black woman!) but have trouble finding the right match — was their most popular article last week and was picked up by several publications, including NPR News and Clutch Magazine.

Panama has a new gig at The Stir, where he’s blogging about being a single dad, being black, dating, actually knowing his daughter’s favorite color, and being a black single dad who’s currently dating and actually knows his daughter’s favorite color. It’s not a game with Panama and the blogging about being a single black male father (who’s not in prison) game.

A new edition of my “Ask A Very Smart Brotha” advice column at Madame Noire posts every Wednesday, and is guaranteed to provide insight, humor, ratchetness, anger, and conspiracy theory (and those are just the comments)

Panama is still holding it down at GuySpeak, a place where (I’ve heard) he’s much, much nicer than he is at VSB. Show the BFF some love.

Also, I’ve been named head editor of The Hill Review, a new literary magazine that’s set to launch in September. Founded and funded by The August Wilson Center, it will offer long-form essays, articles, critiques, fiction, excerpts, and even editorial cartoons. Basically, think The New Yorker with a focus on all things African-American culture. You’ll be hearing more about this in the coming weeks. And yes, we’re unofficially accepting submissions right now. (Btw, I have no idea what “unofficially accepting submissions” even means.)

Lastly, I know we’ve done this a trillion times before, but each of us — Panama, Liz, and I — greatly appreciate all of the support you all have given us. Yes, we’ve put in a ton of work ourselves, but the success we’ve had and the doors this success has opened is largely due to VSB nation, and we’re forever indebted to you all and shit.

Thank you.

Anyway, people of VSB.com, does anyone have any announcements to make? Any crazy 4th of July stories? Any planking pictures?

We’re all fam here and shit. Don’t be scared to share.

***1:25 am edit. Liz has a ton of awesomeness going on too, but she’s a bit less comfortable sharing in this space. Plus, she prefers to remain stealth. Easier for her to steal shit that way, I guess. Follow her at @calinative for the full Liz 411.***

    Please stop with the planking?

    • http://sunblossomkente.blogspot.com sun blossom kente

      Oops i misunderstood your blog title..i thought you meant “Very SMART brothas.com” …I didnt mean to interrupt your mcdeez and kool aid sessions…the comments after mine have just about solidified where the intelligence level is for this crowd. Please direct me to where intelligent black discussion is being held again?

      • http://verysmartbrothas.com The Champ

        “Please direct me to where intelligent black discussion is being held again?”

        i’m not exactly sure, but i think it’s currently being held somewhere underneath deez

        • http://sunblossomkente.blogspot.com sun blossom kente

          Right. Case in point. I feel sorry for you so I’ll let you have your clever zing.

          • http://sunblossomkente.blogspot.com sun blossom kente

            and by clever I mean juvenille

            • http://sunblossomkente.blogspot.com sun blossom kente

              I also think August Wilson would love that you called your latest venture The New York for “niggas”…accompanied by the planking..because that’s what his life work was about..making sure that we continue to project ourselves as NIGGAS… *Sarcasm*

              • http://kineticculture.com NubianEmpress

                Actually August had no problem using the word…chill sunflower.

                • http://thatswhatgemsaid.wordpress.com Gem Jones

                  yeah man. August Wilson used the hell outta n*gga!!!!

                  and he also penned: God is one bad muthafcka!

                • http://sunblossomkente.blogspot.com sun blossom kente

                  All the works I remember of August Wilson and hearing his thoughts, I don’t recall him looking him to promote nigga-ism. Just as spike lee writes the word nigga in his scripts, his higher meaning of his work is still not to promote the nigga legacy of black folks…but I think its very healthy that we continue to defend the n-word and slave mentality when as creative beings there are so many other ways we can define ourselves. But hey you like being a nigger go for it!

                  • http://thatswhatgemsaid.wordpress.com Gem Jones

                    sooooooo its ok to use the word “n*gga” to simply refer to “black ppl” in Wilson and Lee’s work but not at VSB? oh ok. thanks for clearing that up.

          RIGHT?!

        • Kema

          Thinking the same thing…

      • http://www.testorshia.blogspot.com Tes

        Uhm…hi :)

        I think what you fail to realize Ms. Sun Blossom is that in addition to an “intelligence blog” this is a humor blog as well. Now, in the world right now, there isn’t much to laugh about; we’ve got poverty, starving children in Africa, sex slaves and mail order brides in Asia, and the world is pretty much destroying itself on a regular basis now. So who does it really hurt if, for a day or two, we laugh about planking, kool-aid and deez? Who does it hurt if we laugh for awhile? Everything does not have to be rocket assembly, chemistry or quantum mechanics although that would be super hot to be deemed “intelligent” enough. Sometimes, all it takes is to change a person’s philosophic thought to be deemed intelligent. Also, sometimes a smile or laugh is the only thing holding some people on and for you to be so short-sighted about it says a lot about your emotional depth and understanding, or misunderstanding rather, about what this blog is about and humor apparently .

        • DQ

          We got sex slaves? Really? Show me where on Google Maps

        • keisha brown

          what she said.

        • http://sunblossomkente.blogspot.com sun blossom kente

          I like jokes as much as the next guy…and I don’t the people who commented or who read this blog care about the issues going on right now…Why can’t we have a day off? ummmmm….no disrespect to the blog but everything about the posts are about relationships and why Black women don’t like hand holding. In all the complexities of being Black it all boils down to sex and relationship issues that it doesnt take a genius to figure out. The people who write are funny but isn’t there more to being black than our relationship dysfunction..and isn’t there more to humor than planks on deez? That stuff was corney in JHS let alone coming from the mouths of grown adults who believe that they are moderately intelligent. And what grown people would find humor in just laying around on things? I mean really?!? It’s like a stunted mindset. And why take it so personally because I think its stupid? You must feel a need to be guilty about it or else you wouldnt have responded at all. but to get so up in arms about it shows that you know its wrong but your microchips have to defend it. I don’t like to argue with black folks but if August Wilson likes ninja-dom….then hey that’s between yall and God..just please leave Malcom X and Marcus Garvey out of it…I’d rather wear them on a tee shirt.

          • http://sunblossomkente.blogspot.com sun blossom kente

            * I don’t think the people who read this blog…

          • http://www.styleillusions.com WIP

            *now feels guilty about enjoyment of the toilet plank picture…

          • http://twitter.com/Phidelity15 Phidelity15

            So really though…who pissed in your holiday rum punch?!? I think even with Tes’s well thought out and simply put comment that its sad that you still don’t get it.

            We are ALL concerned about the world and its everyday going ons but if you let so much of that negativity invade our mind space everyday, all day with no reprieve…then we end up like you <—thats a joke..I think its funny, but thats just me.

            Like Tes said, its okay to laugh and joke and if you've perused the archives (please do so today as obviously this post here isn't to your liking) then you will see that they post and we discuss a myriad of topics, not just relationships.

            • http://thatswhatgemsaid.wordpress.com Gem Jones

              i dont know why you and Tes are bothering to even respond to this person. clearly he/she is in THE WRONG PLACE if this is not the type of reading he/she appreciates. why is he/she even here?!?! there no need to even have a \_ because clearly the VSB seats arent worthy of such an A$S.

              so it all boils down to this: FOH. *shrug*

              • http://twitter.com/SmartFoxGirl SmartFoxGirl

                Exactly. I was gonna type up some ultra ratchet goon response but then said F’it. Different strokes for different folks.

            I think the too smart for silliness folks are the real ones setting us back as a race. Why? Because you value white opinion so highly that you are scared some ninja is going to act like a stereotype and “they” will think were all like that. As if what they think matters more than people feeling free to be silly sometimes. It’s called initialized slavery. It’s not that serious because they are not that relevant.

            now pumpkin, you know that when you say no disrespect, you intend to be disrespectful.

            funny sh*t is that you walked into this house throwing stones but instead of making us look dumb you just made yourself look like an ass. read more. read better. we don’t only write about relationships. we’ve done it a lot. but we also write about other sh*t specifically as it relates to the black experience. just cuz you dont know it exists doesnt mean that it doesnt.

            and how are you going to tell folks not to take anything personally whe you walk into the building throwing shade and judging people outright, even questioning the intelligence of the crowd. sorry tootz, but you might as well suck that sh*t up.

            and since we’re making requests, i’m gonna ask that you dont rock a malcolm shirt since you clearly don’t understand sh*t else but your worldview. malcolm became enlighted. try it.

            you can have marcus though. that n*gga was a n*gga, thru and thru.

            What in the entire hell?

          • http://www.testorshia.blogspot.com Tes

            I’m not taking what you say personally ma’am; I take issue with how you chose to voice your discontent. There are ways women, and adults as a whole, approach things when they disagree and the way you did it is not how it’s done, at least not by people with class and higher intelligence.

            To assume, for whatever reason, that people here don’t think of real world issues on a daily basis is to assume that we aren’t active in day-to-day living in which we are bombarded with truisms of life such as the things I’ve listed, which is, once again, short-sighted. To assume you are the only one on this blog concerned with worldly issues and things of higher intelligence, whatever you deem those to be, is arrogant and erring on the side of delusions of grandieur.

            Lastly, to say you don’t like to argue with black folks while on a black blog which many of us are invested in personally enough to go to the functions, host the events and wear the t-shirts and saying something negative is, once again, short-sighted. Are you seeing a pattern here?

      i dont know how many times i have to do this on Twitter, but the only two signs that sound dope with “season” after are Gemini and Scorpio

      Cancer Season sounds like the months of January-December at an old folks home where they allow smoking on the premises.

      • Hawaii

        Lmao! Sad to say but you’re kinda right. I paused after typing ‘#cancerseason’ :|

      • miss t-lee

  • Cris Until I Find a Clever Name

    Congrats to you and PJ on getting more shine and spreading VSB throughout the Universe! May the Takeover continue!

    • http://verysmartbrothas.com The Champ

      thanks, and way to make it sound like VSB was an STD

      • http://twitter.com/itztrizz617 herbetteroption

        THIS!

      • DQ

        It kinda spreads the same way *hunches shoulders*

        I’m just saying… another poster gave it to me, and I gave it to another poster (who still ain’t posted yet – btw get your a$$ in gear – yes I’m talking to you). I know at least 3 people who got the VSB from this one poster.

        • keisha brown

          “i got/caught the VSB”
