OK, Y'all....

While the rest of the world is trying to figure out if Oprah really wears a weave (she says no), or why your cousins minstreled it up to the highest power over some Popeye's for Earth Day (hilarious post!) and for some KFC last week, and why any type of moisture whatsoever is kryptonite to Gary Coleman (see picture above), Ms. Invisible tries to stay sane through the arts, but even I have succumbed a bit. But even as I try to stay afloat these days, please believe that I will never, ever, be as crazy as this chick right here:



Because of the changes I have been navigating, I wanted to be fair and let folks know what is going on. When I started this blog, I compiled a 'Negro Justice League' of bloggers, which consisted of me (of course), Undercover Black Man, Afronerd, PurpleZoe, and Supernegro, with Just Judith as our loyal Gal Friday. Well, two folded up their capes to do wonderful things; Supernegro aka Jeffrey L. Wilson, also a tech writer, went off to write a book, and Undercover Black Man, aka David Mills, just shut down shop to write with David Simon (The Wire) on a new HBO show that was greenlit called "Treme" (watch for it next year, read about it HERE).


Anyhoo, I thought about taking their route. If you want to be strong and leave the blogosphere, it is almost like quitting drugs, honestly. But I am not able to do it cold turkey. I love and enjoy my readers too much, and y'all know I love talking about film too much. So rather than have you guys keep checking for a new post that isn't there, I will be going on hiatus with this blog for an extended period.

Thank you to the readers that have encouraged me to keep it open and not shut down-- specifically the wonderful commenters, those who have started "following" my blog even in the absence of fresh posts, and my amazing brother and sister bloggers--big up to 4 of them who all gave me a "SPLASH AWARD" (yes 3 separate ones! see the award pic above) in the past 2 weeks--Professor Tracey of "Aunt Jemima's Revenge", Ms. Marvalus of "Opinionated Black Woman" and "Conversations With Marva" (who ALWAYS has my back through thick and thin!), and Aaron and Alaine from "A Political Season". All of these bloggers are super-duper intelligent Negroes on every level, so it was quite the honor, to say the least.

But fear not, while I am away from this blog, I will be contributing to another wonderful Black Cinema blog--"Shadow And Act". It is collaboration of me, Tambay Obenson from "The Obenson Report", my beloved Sergio from Ebony/Jet, and my Black Cinema comrades of "Must Love Movies", "Black Film Academy" and "The Black Box Office". Please join us daily over there, because unlike me, there are some overachievers there that actually have the nerve to post more than once a day, every day. Can you imagine?


Keep those martinis flowing... and stay woke! :-)


I WILL be back....until then......SHADOW AND ACT

i'm sad you'll be gone, but i'll definitely be looking at Shadow and Act. Mad about this lady and her Amazing Grace rendition. HOT MESS. And the ashy feet? wow! That's all i gots to say. Stay strong and can't wait for the next one!

Invisible Woman said...

That "lady" is Hotee from the first season of "Flavor Of Love", and the original hot mess from which all hot messes sprang forth!
As for the feets...it would take me days...

msladydeborah said...

Awww!

I'm going to miss reading your thoughts. But a sistah has got to pursue her desires and dreams!

I hope all goes well for your plans. And I'll be on the look out for you!

charcoalink said...

I wish you all the best & look forward to reading your musings on the new group blog.

Issa Rae said...

I was going to say she looked just like Hottee from "Flavor of Love." She always has some kind of dumb YouTube release to attempt to extend her 15 minutes.

Her hair looks good though.

I'm sorry to see you giving up your own blog too :-(

Invisible Woman said...

Hey ms lady, aulelia, and issa: not closing this blog, no way. just thought i should do some other stuff for a while...it is nothing quite as glamorous as "persuing a dream"--it's simply cause a chick is lazy and don't feel much lahk bloggin' raht now, lol!~

i'll be back tho...

SDG said...

I've been reading the new site and I really like it. Take care.

Marvalus said...

You are TOO wrong for putting up that video of Hottee (ain't that her?!) Bwahahahahaha!!!!

You're leaving? Where you go, I will follow...see you @ Shadow and Act, sis!

Love!

clnmike said...

I so did not need to see Gary's feet.

Reel Whore said...

Sapphira, more like Suffera. Whew.

I hate your site will go silent, but I've already added Shadow and Act to the Reader! Catch you over there.

madame z said...

Been diggin' on Shadow and Act for a minute. I love the posts there and love that you are only transferring your bloggerly-powers to another site. But I will miss this one. Take care lady; see you on the flip-side. Oh, and extra-strength, factory-grade Vaseline-jelly might help Coleman's crusty situation much much better than Eucerin. LOL.

Tafari said...

Oh hell now, an extended hiatus sounds like a damn death sentence for one of my most favoritest blogs. You cannot do this to us.

If it helps, I'll send you a few Popeye's 8 piece coupons boo??? I know you like it spicy & fired hard. Please????

LOL!!!!

Hey do you & I will be checking out Shadow & Act.

wanda loves... said...

LMAO at all the cuts in that Amazing Grace video. She has no shame, but at least the hair isnt Barbie Doll blonde anymore.

I like Shadow and Act. I added it to my reader, but will try to actually get over and comment. The only downside to my using RSS! :)

Undercover Black Man said...

Oh wow. Sad to hear about the hiatus, IW. But look forward to seeing more of you at Shadow and Act. That blog is on fire!

DB said...

wow...those ankles....

yeahisaiditworld said...

I... cannot... breeve... @Amazin' Grace Beesh! LMMAOROTGDF!

soulafrodisiac said...

All I can and will say about those feet is - OH MY DAAAAYMN.

Seriously??

PPR_Scribe said...

I am guessing Coleman's skin problems have to do with his kidney disease and dialyis treatments.

Gurrrrrl... did you have to post that photo of a bottle of lotion?? *LOL*

Quit it!
