IT FEELS GOOD

I am really feeling this:
throwbackbanner.jpg

In short, I woke up dancing this morning.
I sprung out of bed with very little yawning.

My mind spinning and spawning tales to convey in script.
The pages are filling, the details are ripped

and embellished with roots.
Ooo oui! I’m an excited she
whose pen is bearing fruit.

I had a script construction meeting Friday night
that did indeed leave me feeling dope & hype!
Oh my!

There was an Aquarius on board, a real pretty Ms.
She scribbled on my script – details that I’d missed.

Thank you, Ms. Aquarius.

aquarius-symbol

I do appreciate your input and wisdom
and will be sure to re-connect for another red-line check
via your eye for television. check-mark

This morning I woke up feeling blessed.
I’m slow to rise – no pending stress.

Though I’ve got my hands full with a pen in one and a lap top in the other,
I’m Qui
and you can bet I’m thinking of thee, as I continue to script a real cool mother. 🙂
I do it like no other. xoxo

Good, New, Me & YOU

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement on July 28, 2017 at 8:15 am

Good morning Good YOU! I’m up feeling good.
I slept like a baby and woke up a new lady
In my AZ-hood.

Life is new, I see the dew and enjoying the smell in the air.
I’m happy with self, being content is a wealth that keeps me in good care.

Friday’s are my high days and they rarely let me down.
I’m still in the sack, sipping jo, pen top cracked, my mind beautiful and sound.

I’m soon to rise and look around. The days opening is beautiful
Though If I didn’t share it with you, I would be less than dutiful.

A good morning is KEY.

Dutiful I am, so I better get to it!
I’m Qui
And together, WE are going to sashay through it.

Mmm, I’m awake.

Lets do it.

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:

divider blk_south

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:

timothy-snyder-tyranny

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

Click the pic and hang with the clique

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!”

girls-trip2.jpg

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.

POWER Gripping

In Griot, Networking, TV Shows, Video on July 19, 2017 at 5:58 am
Power Season 4 2017

Tony Teresi threatens to reveal Ghost if he doesn’t have Tommy deliver 20 Grand a week to his dying wife.

OMG and Ooo Wee! Did you see POWER Sunday night?
Angela, Ghost and Tommy all have their fights:

  • Ghost is still in jail.
  • The prosecution team is still giving him hell.
  • Angela is focused on her own vengeance spell.
  • She is  the ‘hold up’ in preventing Ghosts’ bail.

My goodness, kinfolk, Sunday night was a familial hard selll:
Kanan is building Tariq a rap sheet; to secure his future FAIL.
Dre’ knows Kanan’s kicking it with Riq but can’t tell.

Accessory to Burglary
even for a minor is a felony…

So he didn’t and the story was further hard hittin’
Teresi is on lockdown with feelings that he should be winnin.’

With thoughts of swindlin’ and grinnin he approached Jamie in the yard,
identified him as Ghost and insisted on bribing him for 20 large.

Ghosts told Proctor when he came to visit him
To give Teresi what he wants —  because he’s divvying Ghost’s grim.

power-prosecutor-john1st chair D.A. John enlists Teresi to get info on Ghost.
He’s looking for a move that could render Jamie toast.

While Tommy delivered the first bribe of 20 grand
He chatted it up with the “bribe receiving” hand.

He asked a series of questions that Jamie sent via Proctor
and when he mentioned the “Stoletti case” he could tell, he got ’em.

Now I personally don’t “know” the Saletti” case
but it was clear Tommy hit a nerve by the look on the guys face.

So the next time the two inmates met in the yard it was a viewers blessing.
Ghost duly set things straight between him and Tony Teresi.

Ghost slipped a rip about the Saletti case and stuff
and nodded condolences on Teresi’s wifes cancer being rough.

Though in light of “Saletti” – he won’t be wearing Teresi’s bribing cuffs.
Still I feel for Teresi, Jamie’s speech may not be enough.

Teresi’s wife is dying of Cancer and she doesn’t have long to live,
so him bribing Ghost is more of a necessary and a not a negotiable give.

So we will see where that goes…
Will Ghosts’ checkmate on Teresi end his woes?

The writers are not showing their hand on that piece
but there’s chaos on every page – a scripts slow release.

power-julio-dreDre told Tommy that he and Julio were Federally hauled in
and that Julio talked to the Feds longer than the span of his begin-to-end.

Julio on his beat ran into Cristobal
who complained about his soldier who is currently on the fall.

Cristobal complained to Julio of his injured hot headed grunt,
and how he doesn’t appreciate Tommy running over his legs – a wreckless stunt.

Cristobal further questioned how Julio is the boss
and let is slip it’s not a title bestowed, but comes at a cost.

Then he dropped the mic and walked off
leaving Julio looking like he wanted to bawl.

Julio took that conversation to Tommy to file a complaint.
But only soldiers talk to Tommy and a soldier Julio – AIN’T!

Tommy had no sympathy for Cristobal’s bedridden goon
and told Julio he better pull it together soon.

Something tells me,
Julio ain’t gone hone this beat.

power-cristobal

Cristobal never smiles in character.

Dre ran into Cristobal at the club
and the two of them discussed Julio “screwing up.”

I’m not really sure why Dre was talking to him,
but it’s likely because Dre wants to be the DISTRO gem.

Enough about him, what about Tasha and the fam?
Tasha dropped by the prison to speak to Ghost and say, “Damn!

Angela’s has been calling me quite a bit as of late…
she said she offered you a deal that you didn’t take.

She said it was an offer that would save the kids and me?
She thinks that she and I should be on the same team.”

Basically Tasha stopped by the prison in short
to prove to Ghost that he still has her heart,

but she also meant
no future deals are to be made or spent

before running it by her – because it’s a huge part of her life.
After all Ghost created this situation that cleaves to his wife.

power-lakieshaAnd then there’s LaKeisha and all that she’s got:
Tommy, her kid and OH LORD! Not the shop?!

Another warrant and FBI cops locked the shop down as she left one night.
In a panic she called Tasha looking for the light,

Tasha knew nothing; Her problems are overwhelming and by a few.
Dre placed a call to Tommy, because the FBI also shut down TRUTH.

All of Jamie St. Patricks assets are frozen and what was further not cool,
is that when Tasha retrieved the kids at 3, she was informed they’re suspended from school.

Because of insufficient funds.
They usually auto-draft, but there was none.

Could things get any lower? The script was going downhill and strong,
Then Angela looks over Truth surveillance footage and concludes she was wrong.

She watched minute-by-minute footage before and after Greg died
and saw not one minute that Ghost had a gun to hide.
It became obvious the mole is still active and alive…

Like I said the writers hand is invisible and I’m not even tripping,
I’m Qui
and it’s that kind of skill set that keeps Starz POWER Gripping.

This is a strong liq that I don’t mind sipping.

FARGO’s Uh-Oh

In Griot, Networking, TV Shows on July 17, 2017 at 4:55 am

Rays girlfriend & ex-con Nikki

Okay, I don’t know if you’re still looking
But FARGO, Season 3 is predicate booking.

There are 3 Stussy’s: 2 brothers and 1 unrelated Ms. —
A pricey vintage stamp collection is the younger brothers wish.

The older brother, Emmit is rich because he cashed in the stamps.
The younger brother, Ray is broke and is ‘Bridge Game’ amp’d.

The thing about Ep. 1 of Season 3
Is it parallels the White Houses troubles.

Oh Lawd and Ooo wee.
Did someone say (outside influence) bribery?

L-R: Emmit and Ray Stussy

So, let’s start with Emmit:
Not long ago he received a short term loan.
Alas his date of due pay has come in strong.

He’s made many calls to repay the loan
But found no one answers the lenders phone.

He & business partner Syd knew not what was wrong
Until the lender showed up and said it’s NOT a loan.

V.M. Varga is the villain lenders name
He insists the $1 million was an investment into Emmits lane.

Emmit and Sy think this is insane but Varga offered no out,
While Ennis Stussy is mistakenly murdered via Ray’s pout.

Ray hired a parolee to rob Emmit and get the vintaged stamp
But the parolee botched the job & got Rays gf amp’d.

Rays tempered gf is Nikki and she’s an ex-con (likely county not fed).
She pryed the a/c from her apt. window and dropped it on the parolees head.

Because the parolee lost Emmits address memo, he located and killed the wrong guy.
He killed Ennis Stussy not Emmitt. Ennis lived a lowly shop keepers life.

Chief of Police Gloria Burgle is the late Ennis Stussy’s step daughter

Ennis’ step daughter is the Chief of Police and she’s the one that found him dead
That was around the time the a/c fell onto the paroles head

across town.
FARGO is wild yo! True stories take the crown.

Season 3 has already concluded in tale totality.
I’m just now enjoying the run ON DEMAND. They held it there from me.

FARGO is an account of true recollections that you’ve got to see.
If you missed it but want to catch it – it’s FX ON DEMAND for free.

If you subscribe to satellite or cable
“Free” is the word used because it’s rewind able.

I’ve not ever been to N. Dakota but legend has it therein have been a lot of Uh-Oh’s.
I’m Qui
A pretty hard core fan of ON DEMAND and their archives of FARGO.

Ps— just so ya know transparency is sheer I’m hear to report Season 4 will be out in 3 years. It’s just pending — No cancellation jeers.

POWER Full

In Communication, Griot, Networking, TV Shows on July 16, 2017 at 3:45 am

power-raina-confronts-angela.pngWe’re 3-feet in, as in 3 episodes into the series Power
And not one darn moment has been boring or sour

even and amidst the in-house and familial quarrels.
The FBI has not been shy in serving up warrants.

First at Tasha and Ghosts’ place– though now we are to call Ghost James.
Second the FBI raided TRUTH & introduced a gun into the game.

The gun was planted in Ghosts office behind the wet bar
Turning certain evidence from probable to gold star. ⭐️

What about Kanan? Or shall we call him Slim?
He’s the power source to Tariq’s dark & grim.

Kanans evil intents are finger prints all over Ghosts’ fam,
While Angela presses forward on ‘not giving a damn.’

The FBI warrants were a slam to further embolden the line
That Angela believes Ghost indeed took Greg’s life.

Wow. All of this from the chick
Who was trying to assume Tasha’s schtick.

James was Ghost-thick and for one moment he lost true sight
Of how dangerous his life could really be shagging an FBI agent at night.

Webp.net-gifmaker (4).gifAngela is the changing variable in the St. Patrick’s way of life.
Yet the burden to clean this up this mess belongs to “the wife.”

It’s a bumb-deal but Tasha really has no choice,
She’s got 3 reasons to push on: 2 girls and 1 boy.

The Death Penalty is waiting for James as he sits in the legal stable.
Angela’s colleague, good ol’ John filed for it and now it’s on the table.

TRUTH, James’ nightclub is dealing drugs and  in mode: creative throttle.
They’re funneling drugs as liquor sales when patrons buy 2 bottles.

It’s a risky business. Angela assumed they could nail Tommy and James via a drug operating – ploy.
But for every person the agents interviewed James sounded like a choir boy.

Hardy-har-har! That’s how it all went down –
Leaving the prosecution team looking like clowns.

But James is still on prison lockdown
The whole “quick bail thing” hasn’t come around

And his new 2nd chair defense attorney Terry,
Is a realistic brother whose analysis isn’t so merry.

Proctor is 1st chair and Terry is the heavy hitting muse.
Terry told Proctor if he’s Tommy’s lawyer too, he needs to recuse.

But Proctor said, ‘No way.
I brought you in to Death Penalty slay
.’
…Well, that’s my little paraphrase.😊

During Terry and Proctors visit with James this  recollection came to light:
Agent Knox pulled James over in traffic before he died that night.

power-agent-greg-knox.jpg

RIP Agent Greg Knox

This is as important as wind is to a sail
Because Agent Knox had James’ DNA under his finger nails.

That FACT alone was duly solidifying
that James was the killer and probably lying,

To: Angela

To Me: Angela is so wrong
to sing such strong and questionable song.

But what can I say?
Jamie made this bed in which he lays.

Tariq is still stewing in trouble and too hormonal to say;
Tommy suspects foul-play and leans in for information from Dre.

Lord help me today because there’s another episode coming.
I just hipped you to  episodes 1-3, tonight 4 is gunning.

Will you be watching?
There’ll be a lot of Power clocking.

You don’t want to miss this – it broadcasts tonight on STARZ.
I’m Qui
Good Sabbath to thee – get your strongest Power from the Lord.

and yeah, the show goes hard – that ain’t no bull.
This production never fails to be POWER Full.no-bull.gif

What a Beach

In Communication, Griot, Networking, Self Improvement, Travel on July 14, 2017 at 5:35 am


Good morning baby, how did you sleep?
I woke up this morning in San Diego on the beach.

I’ve been here a couple of days and much has transpired.
The hillside views are beautiful and subject to combustible fires.

The temperature hasn’t reached 100 – not even at the height of day.
Today’s high is only 76. My God, I love this place.

It this beloved month of July
Phoenix, Arizona is on the fry.

A relaxing time in abundance has duly been on my plate
I love this place because Phoenix is forecasted to hit 108.

Hey-ey! The day is young and poised for fun
No “nothing burgers” being fed by the juniors of Trump.

Collusion, adoption, opposition research – what in the honest world gives?
I won’t lie the transparency is so fried; it trumps the unreal.

I won’t get into the details, click the link if you want to catch up,
It’s the news I woke to. God bless the White House – this is rough.

jimmy-fallon-dancing.gifI’m not into clowning folk or overly shaming a situation.
Careful to not dance on this scene – this administration is our world relation.

I’m not dancing at all. I’m prayerful and concerned.
Dancing with Russia will bust ya and yield ya’ to a burn.

I prefer this scene of our country’s script passes quickly, let’s turn the page.
The position of the USA is still tops today though we could opt to burn a little sage.

The world is looking at us crazy.
This “nothing burger” fire is still blazing…

The San Diego beach is still staring me in the face,
So I’m up at 5am to enjoy this beautiful place.

I’m up thinking about you. I wish you were where with.
So with this beach in view,
I crack the pen to give you a swig.

Sip it, savor and make this day positively reach.
No matter where you are in the world today, act like you’re on the beach.

Take no dark clouds via information, only receive sunny
And if today is payday – take care to put away a little money.

There’ll always be a day when “a nest egg” will have a need.
I’m Qui
Out here in San Diego on hiatus thinking of thee… on the beach.

Making jokes.

I don’t know, I’m not crazy about the orange homey,
but he had my patience-pending then he fired Comey.

And then he did an interview with Lester Holt

He admitted on camera like a bird that sings
