Lets Go To DICK’S

In Communication, fitness, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on February 28, 2018 at 7:32 am

to-catch-a-thief-car-driveLast night was highly strung so I slept in a little bit.
I woke up feeling refreshingly sporty; therefore, I’m going to DICK’S.

I may order a few other items online, perhaps I’ll Amazon Prime check.
On the other hand, they still support NRA TV… Shopping explorations! I’m looking for the next.

Good thing, for the sporty feeling me that I’m up for sewing money into society’s mix.
And with my choice of retail stores to begin with – I think I’ll goto DICK’S.

Surprised this morning to learn this that I’m a gun sporting girl?
Actually I’m a hunter of words, scripts, and supportive verbs; an advocate of peace in the world.

In light of February 14th at Marjorie Stoneman Douglass High,
Dicks is looking good; there’s plenty of room for other companies to try.

DICK’S SPORTING GOODS has decided to remove all assault rifles from their stock.
I’m not a big hunting fan, still, I am a sport who likes to shop.

There are dozens of other companies that have recoiled their NRA support.
Perhaps I will review that list and consider spending with them more.

It’s a beautiful day outside on this midweek hump,
but Florida buried their kids last week, so they are still in a slump.

Please send them vibes of strength, prayers to the father and yield support to their neighborhood.
Let’s show the children that we’re reliant and not down with gun violence — Let’s Go To DICK’S SPORTING GOODS.

Mark my word on this day, I am moving to Denver.”

That’s what my daughter said to me last week. She’s all packed now and ready to go!
Me? I’ll be a kid in town all by myself. I’m excited about her to and fro!

I’m excited about my future travels, too. The Arizona’s dust can be a bit hazy.
I hear there are so many elevations in Colorado that the fun can border crazy.

She’s life blossoming, yet level-headed and poised to handle drama.
She’s a literary girl with very little cares. She got that from her moma.

Me? When was the last time that I did something wild?
It could go as far back as me having my last child.

I’m surely an out of the box kind of girl; limits are not really my thing,
still 6-years exist between my kids. I appreciated the time to breathe.

Therefore, I reckon I’ll be okay
with both my kids living in different states.

In fact, on the real, I think it’s carefree’ingly cool!
I’m still that rapper-girl from Trimble Tech High School.

Today — on the reel, I am a woman about my studies.
I’ve been hanging real tough with my collegiate buddies.

I’ve been putting in 15-30 hours a week on course research.
My head in a book near a window to outwardly look;
’tis my perferred creative perch.
My brain is massaged – my mind, alert.

I am really more of a nerd than even I ever knew.
The work is rigorous. I study and comprehend-slew.

I appreciate your reflection of love.

I just thought I’d rewind my weekend a day or two,
and share the beloved contents therein, with you.

No need to make our morning introductions a mono-score,

march for our lives.png

Students from  Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School : Cameron Kasky, Emma Gonzalez, David Hogg, Alex Wind and Jaclyn Corin

.
Martin Luther King had a dream and it looked something like today,
‘black kids and white kids are walking hand-in-hand (with a stop on the hill  before) play.

Their character is not content; they can very well hate you or adore you.
Congress, you’d best to pay attention, because they’re really coming for you.

Martin Luther King had a dream and he never woke up.
Today our kids are on the bus – they’re being forced to grow up.

This year, in the month of Black History – unity is fantastically brimming from the heart.
Remember that Louis Farrahkan, historically put us on to The Million Man March,

Parkland_shooting_protest.jpgNow the children of all races and gender
are promising Washington, DC another March to remember.

March 24th in Washington, DC is the date and state
when a million kids will show up and flood the gates.

State officials rejected a weapons ban in Tallahassee, yesterday
in the face of knowing a packed bus full of kids were in route – on their way.

Whatchu say?
Congress wears a careless face.
Our kids are going to vote them out of that space.

Donations towards the children’s march have been rolling in.
At a half a million a drop – The Clooney’s and Oprah had to get in!

Then Steven Spielberg ponied up and threw in half a million more.
Congress has been a real heel; the children aren’t impressed anymore.

Martin Luther King had a dream. Surely it’s something you’ve heard about.
Interestingly enough it all came to a halt when a shooter took him out.

Last week – 17 more
were added to the score.

Let us not forget. It’s long overdue that the people collectively rise.
Remember on March 24th, we’re MARCHING FOR OUR LIVES.

Once again, Hump Day is here – and I’ve really and truly missed you.
I’m Qui
Always thinking about WE ❤️ and super appreciative that you still come through. 🙂

SUPPORT
is by far, the biggest sport.
THANK YOU.

News Peruse

In Communication, Griot, News, Politics, TV Shows, Video on February 19, 2018 at 7:36 am

 

presidents day.pngPlease, yo – say it ain’t so.
Is it time for a News Peruse?
I’m inclined to say, “No.”

I don’t miss running down headlines, though they inspire me to script.
Then I wake up this morning to another round of the hill’s fat lip.

Oh, it’s nothing deemed new-news, we’re still swelling off of last weeks hit,
when Mueller passed down 13 indictments on Russians for election meddlin.’

I don’t want to talk about it, really.  :/ I’m poised to wait for the investigations answers.
Nor do I want to talk about Melania’s man cheating or the scowls of Sarah Sanders.

Oh – why, yo?
And on top of that, I think she’s a Leo.
Noo!!!

Have you seen Steven Colbert’s new animated show, OUR CARTOON PRESIDENT?
It is actually genius work and a great way to comedy vent.

When was the last time that you laughed? —- Oh! Just now? You did it?
Was the reason for the laughter over something the President twitted?

I see. I see.
‘Woah is me,’

is what I think when I start receiving courtesy cues
that folks in my circle are ISO a News Peruse.

I don’t even want to talk about the Florida shooting…
It’s like watching a hunting humans club and they’re recruiting.

The NRA takes no blame…
ill formed Tweets etch in certain shame.

The leader is so limp, unintelligent and lame
that even our children refuse to say his name.

We lost 15 children to gun violence on Valentines Day.
Giving credence to them saying, ‘Nothing ever goes their way.’

They complain and we brush it off.
17 more lives are lost. How much more is the cost?

In my mirror is a daunting reflection of world views,
in order to keep it real – we must thumb through and News Peruse.

I hear your vibes and it’s true – I love you anyhow.
You always come through with the supportive bOoM-PoW!!

Thanks for that.
Now make it a point today – to LAUGH.

You got this! I got this! Having a GOOD TIME is what we do!

Serving you for coming through; Bon appetit la News Persuse.

Is there anything therein that you can use?

Let’s talk about BLACK PANTHER

In Communication, Griot, Movies, Networking, News, Self Improvement on February 16, 2018 at 10:56 am

Black_Panther_Poster.jpg

.

img_8267Just before our 8:15 showing last night of BLACK PANTHER at AMC, I tore open my Amazon packaging and took a pair of scissors to my MARVEL Black Panther tee-shirt. I threw on a head band to accessorize – because my ancestry is rooted in eye-catching jewelry and I wanted to show up looking like I knew.

Good thing I did. Did you see the neckline pieces that Black Panther and his nemesis cousin, Erik Killmonger wore? I was out done on my accessory choices and pleasantly driven to unexpected depths in the story-line and relatedness of the tale that was a black life experience.

Did you see it? Among so many messages, the biggest one was the hurdle that mounts in the middle of many African American families for a mono power. It may be between two alpha male cousins, two strong minded aunts, two bull headed brothers, two stubborn standing sisters, it doesn’t matter — beef exists in the tightest of families. However, all too often, in the African American family beef has an HOV lane to tarnishing and separates families at the root. I saw this in the film. Also, I really hoped the dying cousin would have accepted the extended hand of the king instead of preferring death. Have you ever been a part of a damaged relationship and the person with whom you share the relationship with would rather die than work things out? Yep. Like I said, the film was strong in relatedness.

Gosh i enjoyed it. I must say, after the first 30-minutes of the film, the screen went black and… well, my mood almost soured. It took me back to last year at Regal Theaters in Gilbert, AZ when I went to see GIRLS TRIP last July 2017, (with Queen Latifah and Tiffany Haddish) and the theaters air condition went out. After waiting in the dark (and properly cooled) theater last night for about 60-seconds, the theater manager came in with jovial greetings and informed us that it had just been brought to his attention that the show we were viewing was not in Real 3D3!! —  I didn’t think so, but no one in the theater seemed to be have been bothered by that fact, but me, so… I just sat back and enjoyed the unfolding of the story. Thank God for the patron that did get up and alert the projectionist — I was just going to write about it in the end and inform you all that the Real 3D technology may not be worth the few extra bucks. 🙂 However, after the projectionist put on the proper formatted film – it was all gravy baby. We were were eating the steak of this tale in pretty radical 3D vision from the comfort of leather-style home theater recliners.

decorative-line-divider1

I learned a lot. I love it all.
I wasn’t even mad about the brief film stall.

I enjoyed much about the story-line – each detail, therein.
I hated to learn that Black Panther’s nemesis was his beloved kin.

I loved how we all could relate to a family member who hails “the brakes.”
I loved how through life and much adversity, the hero’s story was laid.

I appreciated the crowds that turned out to make this film a hit, by far.
I enjoyed our Real 3D audience at the close of the show, yielding applause.

I reside in Phoenix, Arizona where there are a lot of choices –
for folks to spend their entertaining dollar. So many new film voices

that they didn’t have to come out and support last night.
The fact that the audience was lit – is an aspiring writers delight.

Did I mention the dialogue was thick? They let me have IT with the details!
This is something I missed in PROUD MARY; their background story failed.

qui_black_panther2

Yep. I’m digging the apparel.

But the action was on point, so was the talent that delivered the lines.
Black Panther pounced all over Proud Mary. Still they have roots from the same heroic vine.

They just want to help.

I appreciate Disney and Marvel! Thank you for leading diversity; for tending to the plight!
I’m Qui
Happy Friday baby! Grab your guy, best friend or lady and go see Black Panther tonight!

Another TWO’s Day

day3

Today is Hump Day – “Let there peace!” That’s what I always say.
Peace is when you throw up the deuce aka Another TWO’s Day.

It’s mid-week already and boy do I feel it.
I took yesterday off; lethargy was the boss and I wouldn’t ‘up-hill’ it.

I wrote not – too much. I hung out with my favorite girl, instead.
I talked about my core curriculum – She was on ‘the last blog‘ that she read.

I talked about a media project due at the end of this week.
She talked about dawning a concert venue tonight as I approach sleep.

Our commonalities are sweet! I remember hanging tough like that when I was 23.
She is 3-years junior to that age, indeed. She is the aristocratic jiz and literal mini-me.

And oui!!! Hump Day is at hand and I am up early to create.
I’ve got a Narrative Series pitch that I need to produce – on my plate.

doppleganger-beyonce-brittany-williams.jpg

In the spirit of Another TWO’s Daymeet Beyonce’s doppleganger, Brittany…

I took off yesterday because I have been going non-stop.
Ideas flood my mind. I know not of writers-block.

Though organizing thoughts can sometimes be a blessing in desguise.
I jot down a concept then re-write it mid-step because another idea’s on the rise.

Sometimes the creativity is so strong, it becomes difficult to lie down and close my eyes.
Though that was before I was pulling a full class load; seeking time to nap now, is always nigh.

Self-Preservation, people. Take serious your sleep and your play.
There you go!  Two more cool points on this Another TWO’s Day.

Good morning kinfolk. Let us stretch, workout, shower and get to it,

All about good sleep, peace and the space to create. Ha! I can’t wait to do it!

Productive Childs Play

productive-childs-play.jpgGood morning sweetheart, how have you been?
I was up late script writing, so today I slept in.

I had a banner weekend, no day went undone.
I researched and learned; to concept I gave birth –
It was exhausting but oodles of fun.
Yep. I got it done.

I’ve got that feeling of accomplishment about me right now.
Suddenly questions of when and why are naturally forming with the how.

Wow. I am truly enjoying the season.
Though to talk about me — wasn’t my chief reason

in hitting you up.
I wanted to check-in and I’d love a )))HUG(((.

I’m up sipping jo and the sun is on its way.
Phoenix is boasting a grey overcast today.

I like that too.
It allows me to feel like I’m up early with you.

7:30am is not early but -’tis suitable for today,
because it’s Monday, a natural funday
regardless of my workload, I plan to PLAY.

productive play.jpg

Change it up at work today. Make each task a game.

Youth is about me when I wear my creative hat.
Put on your favorite helmet and get out there and bat!

GAMIFICATION is real. Think of protocol and task as a game.
It could yield a new spin to a routine plan that often feels mundane.

I’m into it! I am. I’ve arisen slowly and am fully charged.
I’m Qui
Checking in with thee, broaching creativity and thanking the good Lord.

I should know, I was raised by the tube

A SPOONFUL OF SUGAR

In Communication, Griot, Networking, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on February 5, 2018 at 9:17 am

.

So much went on last week on satellite TV that I failed to mention
this griot piece of intentional release that I created with specific indention.

Starting with Cecil and Simmone:
Is the love really all gone?

I heard, via the clip that you two are mid-course
on severing the union; you’ve filed for divorce.

I’m sorry to hear that.
You are a positive picture in the Culture of Black.

This bodes for a more detail conversation. On this topic, I’ll be back…

divider blk_south

Skirt It, Curtis!

Last week’s MARRIED TO MEDICINE was something indeed.
I heard about the verge in Jamaica, but how’s the Barbados’ weed?

I only ask because during Ep. 12 Island Fever we indeed flirted
with the idea that all is not completely understood with our beloved Curtis.

Besides inappropriately pulling Toya into his lap a couple of episodes back,
It seems the art of making up with his wife, properly –  may be a trait of lack.

I’m in your corner Curtis! I truly am. I want your union to work.
You made your point when you took a side joint out of being hurt.

Skirt It, Curtis! The world is watching. If you can hear me, you’ve got to back me!
Be informed young man, that which makes you taller than you stand –
Is indeed your wife; that woman named Jackie.

divider blk_south

It’s a DETAIL THING, Dear Dr. Eugene

No this spoonful post is not a MARRIED TO MEDICINE read… well maybe it is. 🙂
Only because we as fans understand life is not all hype episodes and glitz.

We love your style and your Psychological capacity to affect the way that we feel,
but outside of the MD’s office, I need you to increase your standing appeal.

I offer the same advice to your lovely wife. She’s the wisest broad.
I’m pulling for her, she’s a proud skirt, but you knew that when you met Quad.

jemaine_clement_flight-of-the-concords

About a married man…

She calls you Petty Betty and then she completely commits to the part.
It’s clear the two of you are wounded. I suggest you search your hearts.

I suggest you both focus less on the show and more on you guys.
It’s the magic that you had prior to BRAVO that was good medicine to our eyes.

Don’t get caught up in the productions and bankable checks.
These are always staple ingredients for reality TV to relationship wreck.

At the end of the day, I love the production and each one of the cast.

Weighing in, in hopes that the harmonious healing vibe will continue to last.

Collectively, you all yield us insight into life, love and a more fulfilled laugh.

Monday Morning Rise

newspaper-lady.jpgBetwixt the sheets and the down comforter on top
I slept quite well, dreamed deeply and drooled alot.

Good morning Monday, I slept until 4:30.
Beginnings at their best – watching the sun crest,
with opportunity I’m always flirty.

At this very moment I’m batting my eye lashes at you.
The day is early, dear Monday. What ever will we do?

Me?  Absolutely yes! I am definitely in the mood.
Aunt Stella started something and now I’m in a groove.

But it’s not quite that mono y mono touch that’s known to make a gal drool.
I tell you, Monday, everyday is a fun day; I can’t get enough of school.

You ever have a ‘jones that not too many people understood why or how?
Well call me the milk lady because I’m exposing the cash cow

to obtain a degree of science that I know will lead to new births.
When it comes to honing a picky diet, let education be my girth.

Let it increase my lobe capacity and shape both halves with a wealth of sum.
God bless me as I eat the curriculum of this degree. God bless my cerebellum.

I couldn’t help but to get up early, I anticipate the Monday Morning Rise.
I’ve got to attend lecture class – it’s always a blast.
New info is always a welcoming surprise.

Did you see Bill Maher last Friday night?
It was almost a Frum vs. The Mooch fight.

David was on panel with Bill and Donna Brazile
and before Anthony Scaramucci joined, the vibe was chill.

Though once The Mooch took his seat,
I won’t lie, he faced quite a bit of a heat.

bill_maher_frum_the_mooch

The Friday Night Fight

First of all, the audience members booed him as he walked to join the set.
I reckon it’s something about his last job association that folks can’t forget?

I don’t know, and still it really doesn’t matter.
The Mooch and I don’t see eye-to-eye, but I can stand his chatter.

I see his angle and he’s cool. I ain’t mad.
But David Frum embodied the spirit of my dad –

David was a verbal noose for the Mooch on Friday night.
I was wondering if you’re still rocking HBO? Because we’re still tight.

DirecTV and me… we’re alright. I keep coming back for mo.’
I’m up right now sipping and half listen to Morning Joe.

If you’re wondering why I keep dipping in on them —
it’s because I’m concerned about the way the country is being hemmed.

I take all political news with a grain of salt.
I laugh and raise a brow — but my good day is not up for halt

so I keep it moving.
I may even get online and do a little AP News perusing.

I’m still in bed.
This monologue is straight from the head.

This moment is for you and me and our capacity of no limits under the skies,
I’m Qui
Excited about life, opportunity, WE and of course a good Monday Morning Rise.

What are you up for today?
S C O R E !!
