No ma’am – No sir. I wouldn’t have it.
I stay on “weekday cruise”

Juicing the LEMON

CNN on the weekends can be informative & fun
when facing COLORFUL FACTS with Don Lemon.

Have you been watching Don? He’s a CNN Anchor who works the weekend shift and usually covers controversial topics of enlightening proportions. Remember in the month of February he covered Confederate Month (in the South) and introduced us to H.K. Edgerton. The subject wasn’t pretty and neither were Mr. Edgertons comments, but Don Lemon pulled us all through it.

Recent news has Don squeezing the truth out of anyone willing to speak about the NAACP, Bret Breitbart, Shirley Sherrod, Anthony Hill (30 year old Black Man – Shot & Dragged in SC) or any of the racial situations plaguing America today. Last weekends CNN broadcasts were awesome. It takes a pretty strong person to tackle race. I mean, Obama is strong, but not even he has dawned the mic like Don has.

I can’t blame the President for not interjecting or putting RACE on the forfront of topics up until now. Our country is currently engaged in wars abroad, (Iraq & Afghanistan) as well as on the homefront, (our borders), so race relations were pending in their prospective places waiting for an entrance. I think Bret Breithbart has invoked an entrance for improved race relations the size of a pregnant elephant and well…sooner or later we’re going to have to face our racial issues as a country in order for us to all move forward “successfully” on “one accord”.

Division is a by product of ignorance – let’s open up the door;
Let’s not let ignorance divide us in our own country anymore.

We need each other more than we think; We need our brothers unconditional hand.
Why should we jump on the bandwagon with other countries who hate AMERICANS?
Come on man…

We can do better than that. At some point we need to give FEAR completely up
and stop pointing the finger @ who hates who & look in the mirror.

We’re hating ourselfs and blaming it on color,
I’m Qui
Digging Don for approaching controversy like no other.

He is one insightful brother…

Are you watching Don Lemon on the weekends?
It’s time for Racial Divisions to end.

IMAGINATION: I’ve got it and boy oh boy am I happy about it.

Everytime I hear Gene Wilders “Pure Imagination” song my mind is instantly thrown back to a time of innocence. And believe it or not, I heard the song long before I saw (or rather “payed attention to”) Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory. The bell toned intro of the song gets me onset. The entire melody rings and invokes open, endless creativity.

Lately I’ve been studying and working with different kinds of filming software and learning the amazing functions of them. The editing bay is the reel place where creativity and imagination come alive. Great software optimizes our conveyance with no respect to limitations.

I know some good stuff
about ADOBE Premier but
I think I’ve fallen in love
with Apples FINAL CUT.

And though my IMAGINATION is still
quite bigger than my skill
It yeilds me not one boring minute –

When faced w/the editing bay
or to go out and play…
The Editing Bay always wins it! 🙂

IMAGINATION makes all of the difference in the world,

A Creative SHE – Definitely an IMAGINATION Girl.
