We’ve made it to mid-week and my feet are like Thumpers…
So here’s a big hello and high to all of the HEMP HUMPERS.

Good morning and how are you doing? I’m elevated indeed.
Though the weekend is coming and tourists will be humming…
In Vegas – it’s all about oui.

Last November Nevada voted to legalize MMJ use
And now The CANNABIS CUP is rolling through in debut.

While the event is a few days away
You and I should be quick to Hump onto today

And ride her like the Thoroughbred that she is.
You’ll be her Mr. — I’ll be her Ms. 

Let’s get out there and make Wednesday our whiz!
For therein is all kinds of opportunistic begins.

I’m feeling pretty happy today. With excitement I’m doing the bounce & the bump.
I’m Qui
Good morning baby. It’s mid week, you & me and this fantastic hump.

Let’s BLAZE it!

THE MIRROR

In Communication, Griot, News, TV Shows on February 27, 2017 at 6:54 am

black-women-talk

Women talk. It’s WHAT we do.

Well child, we ‘done wrapped up MARRIED TO MEDICINE’s 4th season,
Lisa Nicole and Heavenly’s issues are a very live reason

to keep tuning in. The drama is real as is the sisterly communion.
Still a bigger fire singed the set of MARRIED TO MEDICINE’s Part 1. Reunion.

Did you see it? Honey, please tell me that you did.
There were tea stains and ruffled bangs between the cast of “breast friends.”

Mariah cancelled the boot on her foot. That thing was starting to meddle me.
Then she showed up in “twinsie footwear and earrings” exactly matching Heavenly.

The ladies were beautiful on the couch, competition was too tight to be outdone.
But when it came to high-siding energy – good Lord, our dear Heavenly won.

In Part 2 of the Reunion Mariah and Heavenly exchanged verbal blows
Tit for tat, Heavenly was on that ass and ‘to the wind’ Mariah did go.

Though not before Mariah called Heavenly a bullfrog and said she looked dusty.
Heavenly came back with “Yo mamma” and Mariah’s face grew real crusty.

Yes honey! The ladies were sweating, I know some must have been musty,
Though you couldn’t tell, by the glamour swell – not a shoe in the house was dusty.

Then during a commercial break Mariah had a change of heart –
Being twinsies with Heavenly had the aoura of a cabbage fart.

She just couldn’t do it.
During the break she ditched the shoes and earrings and said SCREW IT!

Mariah would rather be bare footed than dub Kimes style.
I reckon that’s what up – but Heavenly rocked ‘em child.

mtm-3Anywho, these mocha reflections of me and you – I dig them. I do.
I’m proud of Toya, Simone and Quad too.
For family, they’ve been there – each has come through.

Hard times took Simone’s father and downgraded Toya’s house.
It brought Quads brother to town, more love abound – then they moved out.

Jackie and Curtis are still in a realtively odd place.
It pained me to see the honest reactions on Curtis’ face

When Dr. Jackie said, ‘if things don’t work out, he can find someone else.’
That shocked my shick. I was like, “Jackie. What the hell?”

It was apparent that she was fired up and not thinking clearly.
I beg of thee to work harder Dr. J. – hold the regards of love dearly.

dr-jackie-married-to-medicine-hubbyDr. Simone has had much to say in reference to your relationship indentions.
Breaking from work and playing more with Curtis was in those mentions.

You gotta listen sister.
It ain’t easy to secure a “down for you” mister.

You and I – we’re pretty strong and stronger are our sires.
Let us not ruin it all by the passion of our fires.

Yes. I’m still Mirror watching.
Now I’m off to do a little Netflix clocking.

Married To Medicine has been good this season,
And yes Mariah, you’ve made sure Quad is the reason.

Mariah, I love you I do, you’ve got awesome self-loving pride
But it’s hard to get close to ya, because you’re a tad ugly on the inside.

It seems you’re role is old – let go of playing “the victim”
Your storyline is getting lost. Recalibrate and flip ‘em!

mariah-huq-faces.gifNext season please come back and share with us who you were
before the reality show’s birth; share magnetic character,  reveal your true worth.

Not the side eye, face making, trumped up girth.
I think you have real purpose – please unearth.

Remind the people why you are woman on the top,
And with the backbiting and face making – you can stop.

I’m looking in the Mirror and fixing my own face.
Black women are entertaining in a reality space.

But when the television show ends and the tube goes off,
Please believe medicine or not, counters are paying the cost.

Let’s look at self often and keep ourselves in check.
I’m Qui
Ladies keep pushing your side-gig and we’ll keep the connect.

For each of you I’ve got
MAD and ENDEARING RESPECT!

Are you OBSOLETE, man

technology-becoming-obsolete.pngShortly after I lock into Rod Sterling’s intro: “You are traveling into another dimension…” the Twilight Zone’s  opening scene starts to unfold and an elderly gentleman is being escorted through 40ft tall double doors leading to a judgment council where over the narrating host continues:

[June 2, 1961]

Rod Sterling: “You walk into this room at your own risk because it leads to the future.  Not a future that “will be,” but one that “might be.”

This is not a new world, it is simply an extension of what began in the old one. It has patterned itself after every dictator who’s ever planted the ripping imprint of a boot on the pages of history since the beginning of time. It has refinements, technological advances and a more sophisticated approach to the destruction of human freedom.

But like every one of the super states that preceded it, It has one iron rule:  Logic is an enemy and Truth is a menace.”

STRONG WORDS. Wouldn’t you say?

For years I have been telling my 19-year old daughter about the dangers of reality TV. It came out of nowhere and when it first started up, the intimate insight into “the behind-the-scenes views of a couple of “average you’s,” was fine, but then the concept took off like an epidemic. Trump became even more popular via the reality show vehicle and our youth have succumb to heralding “this particular attitude” and often vocalizing, “Ugh! Reality shows have some of the dumbest people on them, I COULD DO BETTER because my life is way more screwed up than… (the subject under review}.

How is that a good premise for a show?

My warning to my daughter throughout the years was ‘I won’t stop you from watching output_eivj5vreality shows but you must keep in mind that they are ENTERTAINMENT and more over that I really believe reality shows came into our lives to DUMB DOWN THE viewing MASSES.’ If that wasn’t the intention, it’s exactly what has and is happening. How many young girls wanted to be Paris Hilton back in the day or wanted to be Kim Kardashian yesterday? Reality icons always fall off the radar of remembrance a month after the show cancellation but during their weekly 15-minutes of fame… they are larger than life to the onlooking masses.

I warned my daughter to avoid being “one of the masses.” I advised her to look – if she must, but to stay focused on her own journey. We ran into instances where she just “wanted to be like everyone else.”  I encouraged her to stand as an individual and then Twilight Zone comes on in the wee hours of this morning and it turns out maybe my advice is indeed “OBSOLETE, man.”

Peep the clip of episode 65, Twilight Zone, THE OBSOLETE MAN:

I love books and there is indeed a God, my friend.
Mr. Romney Wordsworth was a librarian and believer until the end.

Though government could not appreciate his diversity stance
and decided if he’s not “like everyone else” he must be OBSOLETE MAN.

Obsolete? Because he wasn’t as shallow as the weighted mass?
After watching this episode, I promptly got up off of my ass

to locate the reel and share the episode with you;
There’s nourishment in the Twilight Zone’s archived view.

Unfortunately it has a PRESENT DAY hue, and still – I’m not feeling it.
Twilight Zone saw signs of obsolete back then – they were reeling it.

This episode is perfect to review today, hop onto the couch of a true Twilight Zone fan,
I’m Qui
Happy Hump Day to thee and BEING YOU is never OBSOLETE, man.
