Special Correspondent: I started as a Special Correspondent, specifically Special Correspondent for Brown People Issues, as dubbed by former editor Jesse Oxfeld. Some negroes may squint their eyes, but I thought the title was kind of genius:
This was my debut ... some might say it's all downhill from here.
Smells Like Negro Musk ... This was my last "Special Report," I enjoyed talking about one of my favorite subjects: black hipsters.
Negrok/China IM chat I enjoyed this chat, in part because it was very impromptu and done from chat-to-post in an hour or so. Spinach Dip was a good foil, filled with reason and sensibility, while i made exclamatory jokes. Come to think of it, intelligent articulate people often make good "foils" for me. I got more backlash than expected for this. Asians were hating.
Black History Month: This was a very un-gawker like post, but it was for Black History Month, so I think they just let me do whatever..... or rather, obviously they let me do whatever. Give me whatever and I'll give you
Guest Editing: For a couple days in the summer of '06 everyone went on vacation, and they were forced to call up talent from the Negro Leagues. I subbed for Jessica Coen. Before this guest-edit stint I thought blogging was a fun means of sharing news and giving your opinion and such, but after a couple days on the job full-time I realized it's more Gateway To Hell than anything else. In any event, here are a handful of posts that came out of that two-day stint:
The Vagina Dialogues, prob my favorite post
morning after pill, "just woke up and boy do we feel pregnant," still makes me giggle.
bloggers are cheap, but you knew that already
times masturbation, breaking: couples are using computers
subway record, a nyc post ...
Columnist-y: Then came a couple columns/series/something-or-others:
Slave Auction-y: And we should never forget February of '07 when I was sold off as part of a White Castle Valentine. Good times, good times.
And so it goes ...
