Yes, I know--my posts have been non-existent. I think every blogger goes through a period where they are ready to chuck their blog and just focus on the non-internet world. Some actually do it (R.I.P. Super Negro, The Black Actor, Babes, Bling and Booze, and most recently Black Kool *sniff*) .
Cause I know how disheartened I was when those blogs went away, I decided to keep it up, but needed a serious blog break with lots of beach and lots of dirty martinis and Sapporo. Mission accomplished, haha. I just wanted to give some love to some blogs that are my must haves, as well as one that I have recently discovered.
I think my regular readers know Madame Invisible loves a well made martini. One of the things I love even more is a witty and original Negro. My new blog crush is definitely the work of one: "The Black Market Index", relating the ebbs and flows of the stock market index to Negroid shenanigans and their ilk, like Whitney and Ray J. Loves it!
Photographer BygBaby is one of the most talented out there, but his hilarious crotchety ways, love of art & culture, and zero hesitation to call a mofo out makes him one of my favorite bloggers. If you haven't already, check him out at "BygBaby's Mindspill".
I always enjoy my time at "Maybe It's Just Me". Wonderman is an openly gay Black man, and he discusses the lifestyle, but also talks about current events, film, comic books etc. in a way that he seems to have read my thoughts. He is one great writer with a gift for expression, and can be pretty funny too.
Also on the Black Male tip (this is 4 for 4) is "The Happy Go Lucky Bachelor". I've noticed that he seems to be evolving from what a woman would give the side eye to in his unapologetic woman chasing to quite a thoughtful guy with an obvious love for women. Of course, that was probably the case from the beginning...and it is always nice to get a Black Man's perspective.
Let's get one in for the ladies, yes? I didn't think it was possible for someone to have an interesting blog about the oversaturated subject of fashion, but this beauty has somehow managed it, and thoroughly. In "Make Fetch Happen" Brigitte focuses on the Black situation in fashion and it's politics, both past and present, and makes it appealing to even those who aren't fashion maves. Go girl :-) Here is a picture from her blog. Recognize her?
And we all know that Thembi is always, always, always good for a laugh at "What Would Thembi Do?"
Speaking of laughs (or maybe tears), can someone please explain this travesty to me? I'll be waiting.
