Its KEY

Waking Up to TIMOTHY, again

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, TV Shows on July 26, 2017 at 11:13 am

I initially posted this piece in March of 2017, though as the days progress I feel compelled to post it again for further review.
Allow me to reintroduce the topic of tyrannical juice via TIMOTHY SNYDER to you.
A little insight on how dictators come through:

waking-up-is-keyI’ve been with my guy for more than two decades, (since high school), so waking up to Timothy Snyder was something new to me. Good thing my guy isn’t the jealous type, because Timothy has a book that has caught my attention and demands ‘curl-up-in-the-bed’ time, so I’ve been ‘curled-up.’

How did I meet Timothy? Bill Maher introduced me to him last Friday night (I’m quick! 🤗) – he was a panel guest. Did you see the show? It was enlightening and heavy all at the same time. And by “heavy” I mean in yielding brain lobe capacity. You know THAT works for me. Oui! Meet Timothy:

I met Timothy on REAL TIME with Bill Maher on Friday
He was discussing historical tyranny; education always equals a high day.

I kept the channel locked. Here is where I wanted to play,
it was pretty good stuff. Here’s a 5-min vid of Tim’s informative say:

Heyyyy! That’s whats up. Did you get that?
Aw, you know me. I’m a knowledge hungry she,
and yes — I definitely dug that.

It was so good, so proven and so deep…
I think I’ll transcribe the conversation for “readers on ‘the creep.'”

But that will take a little bit of time.
Peep YouTube – now, before they kill the line.

Me? On this Wednesday morning, I’m feeling fine.
I’ve got a few hours pending before tackling my grind.

I’m hitting you up, because you’ve been on my mind.
Good morning baby. I’m on my lobe-lift grind.

The day is early and knowledge is a good serve anytime!
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, I’m content with spooning this book of mine.

I’m imploring you to expand your mind and to read a book today
Protect yourself, health and wealth from the tyrannical methods of yesterday!
DO Be wary of it creeping up again; Resist “the tyranny sway.”

Mondays Reign

Good morning baby. What’s up?
Did you spend your weekend in the cut?

Did you rise early after bedding late?
Is your SUPER HERO m.o. – always in the office before 8?

I dig your style dear child and today I am working from home.
Things will be semi-different because I usually work alone,

but not today.
Todays desk project calls for absolute SLAY!!

And I’m all in.
IN so deep, I brought a friend.

Two heads are better than one
and Monday Mornings were made for fun!

I’m excited and I’m on it. You wouldn’t shut down at desert would ya?
No! I’m just glad to be in this seat and not that of Jared Kushner.

My sinus’ are quite flared. Arizona’s rain storms are duly moistened the agricultural gardens.
Mother Nature came in strong, but she wasn’t wrong – therefore she needs no general pardons.

Today we’ll be script writing, re-writing and think tanking.
I woke up early to get with it — to God I am thanking.

It’s good to be alive and able to craft my own vibe on this fun day.
Kinfolk, it ain’t no joke, I get real excited about the new of Mondays.

What about the weekend? What did you get into?
I went to see GIRLS TRIP and bonded with the audience group.

jordan-peele-sweating-buckets.gif

we were sweating profusely in REGAL THEATERS in Gilbert, AZ

We saw the film in Gilbert, AZ at REGAL, a movie theater with sweet recliners.
But the A/C was not live in theater 5. Our viewing experience could have been finer.

The facility itself was cold as ice, the lobby, the loo and theater 4.
I know because I took a bathroom break and dipped into 4 to “feel” the score.

It was cool. Real cool. The way I like to be pampered
so I sent my date to the front to inform the manager.

He did, as did several other patrons in the place.
But the air struggled to come through and cool off the space.

Now keep in mind they ask you for an additional fee upfront for their elite accommodations.
I always pay with pleasure. I dig the supply and demand relations

but I couldn’t relate to the hellish fate we endured
however the film was EXCELLENT and proved to be the cure

that kept us all silent and sitting in place.
GIRLS TRIP was off the hook; the audience was multi race.

We sat side by side, we smiled and we laughed.
We watched few step out — the heat was pretty bad.

Of those that stepped out most reported the 411
though it appeared management was rooting for our experience to be undone.

They smirked and tended not to our requests to have the A/C come on,
still kinfolk, you’ve gotta know GIRLS TRIP was the BOMBS!!!!

Have you seen it? If you have not
this is a date night that you’ve got to cop!

Especially if you’re wondering what’s up on my many girl trips.
Let the curious peep this to comprehend what I’m working with.

Good times are definitely being had
and even in the heat — we put off mad.

Though immediately upon the credits roll
the heat that we suppressed came due and on swoll.

We all started to exit, immediately with no words.
I, in my fedora, headed up the march – I was first.

Actually, I did not know
that in the same direction we were all about to go.

I just knew, in good customer communicative fashion
that I was duly on my way to the front to speak to the manager.

The Regal Theater manager on duty Friday afternoon was a no forgetter
his appearance drab, a young lad, his name was Troy Hegstetler.

He came from his box into the lobby seeing only myself and a few other women at first —
thought he’d give us a hard time about our concerns. He was all smirk.

But then as the remainder of the theater showed up to back us in the thicket
Troy asked me, ‘What do you want?’ I said we’ll all take courtesy tickets.

I asked Troy what happened to the AC in theater 5?
He laughed, shrugged and gave me “the business jive.”

I then called my Mom in Texas to inform her
and she said something similar happen to her

when she and her girlfriends went to see it.
They brought blankets for the cold AC, but never reaped it.

She thought that was strange but thought it was just a fluke,
and “Who cared anyway,” Mom said, “GIRLS TRIP is a hoot!”

Woooo! I absolutely do agree.
But she’d have got a pair of replacement tickets had she come with me. lol! 🙂

Ooo wee, kinfolk. It was a good weekend and good morning to you again,
I’m Qui
sippin’ on this jo and it’s still raining yo — at this beautiful day to begin.

What the CANE – Queen Sugar

In Communication, Griot, TV Shows on July 21, 2017 at 6:16 am

Did you see the episode 6 of Queen Sugar a couple of days ago?
The family dinner that closed the show was pretty hard to throat.

Post their fathers headstone memorial everyone came back to the house,
They sat down at the table before the dine to commune for a while
and ooo child

let me tell you what went down then:
Aunt Vi and Hollywood witnessed frayed ends.

Ralph Angel (RA) is the youngest and only Bordelon male child
he found a letter addressed to him from their father after he died

Ernest Bordelon left the lot of his farm to his son Ralph Angel to passed down to Blue.

Initially he shared the letter with Aunt Vi
And her surmise: the letter could ruin their lives 

Because big sis Charlie has invested big dough – she’s the farms financial motor.
Their fathers last days were spent cleaning toilets, learned (middle sis), Nova.

Charlie was blindsided by all and asked the fam to ‘hold the phone,’
And clarified that the letter Ernest wrote gave the farm to RA, alone!?

RA said, “Yeah. Y’all can read it for yourself.
Both his sisters got up – but no for the mail


Nova and Charlie both started heading for the door.
I got the impression they were done with the “unity” score.

Aunt Vi, Hollywood and Darla sat at the table in silence…
I wasn’t talking either. I was busy writing this. 📝

What the Cane is going on with the fam?
The farm belongs to Ralph Angel. The ladies are like ‘damn.’
What now?

Episode 6 is titled: Line Of Our Elders and rightfully so.
We are passed down and inherit our ancestors beloved whoas.

The content of this series is sweet, sticky and thick.
I’m Qui
A candy lover though eating too much Cane can make you sick.

The family vibe
is mud and Ernests’ letter is the stick.
