We’re Back Like Maxwell!

See, what had happened was...

So our little Spring Break turned into a short sabbatical. Hey, stuff happens. And in our case that stuff involved ridiculous technical issues that involved four different hosts in as many weeks and tech support that was anything but supportive or responsive to our needs. But we've finally gotten everything straightened out and back in working order thanks to the tireless efforts of our Creative Director and IT Goddess, Huny. She's the bomb. Truly.

For everyone who asked about the site and where we were during our absence, you can stop asking now. We'll be back to our regularly scheduled blogging next week, but in the meantime enjoy this Memorial Day weekend, wish our main man Maxwell a Happy Birthday (he turns thirty-sexy tomorrow) and feel free to leave us some love--or me some hate for the above photo taken a few weeks ago at Max's BLACKsummers' night press conference in NYC (video after the bounce)--in the comments section.

  36. Glad you're back online!!!! I was hating the fact that this site was gone... I felt like I was missing something I loved. Definitely glad you're back!!!

  37. I'm so glad you all are back. AND! I can totally understand the much needed rest. You all do such a wonderful job that I kinda got sad checking for the sincerely missed updates. Could you all support or berate my little snippet of a verse on my myspace page. *shameless plug sorry lol*

  38. Welcome back!!! You've been missed. Love the Maxwell pic...he's so dreamy...the only music man that makes me squeal like a

  39. Whew! Thanks for all your escapades on Twitter Butta. Can't wait. This year's new releases lineup already got me feeling high.

  40. I assure everyone reading this that there was no form of chilling, resting, frolicking, or fun-having for those of us involved in attempting to bring this website back. We more or less had to endure the same nightmare multiple times in a row to get it up and running, for you. But it's a blessing to be back and thanks for all your support. Namaste.

  41. Oh Goodness.....I think I would have melted into a big puddle of goo on the floor had I been that close to Maxwell. I am happily married, but I swear he is the only "fantasy" man that I would act a fool for. Love the picture!!!!!

  42. Oh...he's even better after listening to the clips. Thanks for posting those Butta! LOVE. THAT. MAN!!!


  44. 'Bout damn time! I've never seen a "spring break" last so long. LMAO at that Bernie Mac comment: "When Black folks break, we *break*!" Yes, indeed!

  45. Real talk, it's good to see you guys and dolls back. As one of the few bright spots were educated black folk can voice their opinions and carry on intelligent conversation, I missed SB.......HOWEVER:) why these technical D's always happen to black ran business' I dont see microsoft having server issues, I dont see King-Magazine having.....Oh wait they folded:) Anyway welcome back SB
