Brown Bloggers/OSW: Xquizzyt1, Volume 3


What a weekend, what a weekend, what a weekend!!

I’m tired, behind with my blog readings (Nichelle,
do you know anyone with an IV tube?!) but I’m happy.

I had more fun than I’ve ever had with Chef
Bernie
, Jimi Sweet and
my main man Christopher
David
, who made my visit spectacular.

I ate and drank myself into a wonderful stupor. George, Chris, Donald, S Dot Porter,
and A. can attest to that).

I got a chance to hang out with Gordon
Chambers
and listen to him show me the time of my life. (Friday’s mix is
gonna be a knockout).

I have so much to say from my trip that I can’t even begin to tell you how much
of a wonderful time I had with the Brown
Bloggers
, and yes what
a night it was
, with getting to hang with Punchin’
Prometheus 6
, Radiant Ronn,
Devestating Donald, Photogenic
Phillipe
, Luscious
Lynne
, Hip
Hop Hashim
, the blogfather George
(and blogmother A.) and the hostesses with the mostesses, Luminescent
Liza
and Knockout
Nichelle
. I’ve got nothin’ but serious love for everyone that was able to
hang with, to talk to, to be with.

I still missed hanging with my homeslices, like eating with Al
Boogie
, groovin’ with KB, hanging with GrooveBunny,
chillin’ with Steve, and absorbing all that is Kevin
R. Scott
, but you know, that’s what makes me want to get up there even more
and make for missing some of my people. (Yo Berry,
Trent, Metalface,
where you at?)

If Sunday night was any indication, I believe there’s good things in store for
New York’s brown bloggers. To have this many people show up at the first annual
event shows that brown bloggers – and I don’t mean just the ones with brown skin,
but also the ones with a brown identity, can embrace what the idea of
brown blogging is and what it can be across the nation. I’m throwing
the gauntlet down not only for the Atlanta brown bloggers, but
brown bloggers across the nation. If it can be done in NYC, than it can be done
anywhere. Believe that. If you don’t know, now you know.
See
it for yourself from my lens
, or you
can check it out from George’s lens
, or you can check it out from
Donald’s lens
. Check it out from Nichelle’s
view (who’s got even more links of people up in the place)
and Liza’s
view
too!!

And yes, while I was gone, I was able to have Xquizzyt1
throw it down yet again, with her OSW, and she don’t stop:

    I wish I could have been there, it looks like everyone had a great time. I hope this encourages people to organize more of these, all over. It’s fun meeting the people you talk online to.
    Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some more pictures to look at….thanks to everyone for sharing them!

    You got to meet Gordon Chambers??? That’s completely awesome! What a true talent that man is. :) I’m sorry I didn’t get to meet you EJ. I lost my cell phone and then didn’t get internet access until too far into the end of the week to contact anyone proper. The next time I’m out that way I’ll be sure to get a hold of you! It would have been great to meet you and KB!
