Fridays Freight

Don’t let it split ya.’

Good morning dear Friday; not quite a blunt but a spliff.
Let’s make this day strong like the (RAS) Representative Adam Schiff.

The House Intelligence Committee is composed of wisdom – long.
House Repubs get no love and their attack on RAS was wrong.

I’m so glad Adam stood strong and looked his colleagues in the eye
as he read them their shortcomings and then turned off their mic.

Purposeful discord is not ever right; what’s with the intent to confuse?
Repubs can scheme up a dream but Dems have learned to diffuse.

Now that’s some hopeful news that we can use before we go
into the College Admission Scam and the Yale Soccer coach

Dude. What for? Did you really think you were a like-feather
when folks offered you $450K to forage Tom, Dick, and Heather

brown cowto get into a top college institution?
You are not a like-feather; coach they used ya.

I think you know that now.
So, ‘how now brown cow,’

what is next?
Bribery still offers yolks to the neck.

Spring is in the air as are travel plans. So, where are you going?
Godspeed on the fun, always pray on the run — and please don’t take a Boeing.

I’m just not trusting them.
To save a buck – they safety hemmed.

Planning a trip and don’t know what type of plane will deliver?
Ask the reservation clerk before you buy. Don’t lip quiver.

Your life in flight is always a concern on the line.
Rent a car and drive it; control the narrative vine.

I like to save time when traveling just as much as the next.
I prioritize my safety – every so often I drive to connect.

Not the most fun way if you are alone, but it may be the safer route.
Gasoline prices is another thing that we can talk about…

on another day.
Today we are in search of the safest travel way.

God bless your choices. I’m praying for you all the same,
I’m Qui

The Hairy Hump

It needs a shave or maybe a laser.
If the bush is unruly, maybe a taser?

Arrest the entanglement of idiocracy
and return this fine union to inclusive Democracy.

The old hairy hump is upon us again.
I’m taking her to the mat – I’m slated to win.

After today, my weekend officially begins.
I like to roll downhill with a paycheck and friends

to the bank.
Whatchu thank?

This isn’t a time in history where I should go to the mall
without a care for tomorrow‘s fare and spend it all.

If there ever was a time.
Today is that day that you save your dimes.

Start putting away coins; do put away plenty.
A recession is trying to court the U.S. in 2020.

Remember the last time that happened? Good times went to louse.
Also, I distinctly remember it being started by a Repub in the White House.

Dean_Winchester_spits_out_water.gif

I think Jensen Ackles has some of the best reactions

Are we really headed in that direction again?
Well, about that paycheck – please don’t spend.

Save today — or tomorrow you will throat-a-lump.
This is your wisdom cue on this hairy hump.

Take it. Take it.
Take a moment to prepare so that you can make it.

The Hairy Hump always needs a manicure,
I’m Qui
seeding a little foresight and wisdom into your core.

Have a fantastic Wednesday – please know that I love you and that I care.
As for our vantage view atop of this hump, stand in the parting of the hair.

A Bag of Monday

You can guess what’s in the details…

When it comes to bull corn do you really need to know —
down to the last detail from whence it traveled to and fro?

Will not knowing truly throw you into a rut?
You already know what you need to know – just check-in with your gut.

Sit quietly with eyes closed and ask the universe a question or two —
then check-in with your intuition; it’s always true to you.

Then open your eyes and thank God for the depths of truth.
Thank God that you’re not going to hell in a hand basket; His grace is holding you.

So what – if you’ll never know if a man is telling the truth from the start.
Let folks say what they want – know that God knows their heart.

Embracing this grace will prove you to look and feel smart.
Don’t let questionable chatter and worldly banter pierce your heart.

Staying focused on God is indeed a necessary art.
Your intuition is your compass; use it to chart.

What are your thoughts? Do tell what you think.
I’m Qui
and you’re quite intuitive if you think something stinks.

What I Do Know

salt-shaker-dance.gif

A seasoned dancer.

I do know that God is real and that in Him I trust.
What crimes need be committed to warrant the chant: “Lock her up?”

I suppose if Mueller found no wrong doings – then the Clintons must be squeaky clean.
I also know the government does what it wants to take-away from and to add-to any scene.

The worlds way… it’s an old thing, it’s musty and resembles an old box.
I do know that my intuition is gold and that my connection with God rocks.

It’s also true that if you don’t stand for something that you will fall for any old thing.
I do know that we have a creator and it is of Him, to thee I sing.

Wear the cares of this world like salt over your shoulder,”
after mom delivered me those words she turned to granny and said, “I told her!

My ancestors wanted me to know that there is nothing new under the sun.
What I Do Know is that they weren’t lying. Today’s safety is in Wisdom. Get you some.

Don’t spend your time running in packs devised under peer-influenced controls.
God is watching and time is clocking; Vote your interests and pray for your soul.

I don’t need to know it all,
to know not to fall.

This is What I do Know.

What you do with today is solely on you.
Don’t play to the mundane. Call it “an old thang” – that you just don’t do.
On the real, if you want to heal then turn off the news too.

 LET’S ROCK OUT ON LOVE –
It may be our last true defense.

stick-figure-love

Okay. You know me well and how I feel about love.
I’m down to start my day with grown play,  a smile and a genuine hug.

I’m down to tell you just how much your good energy makes me smile.
I do believe love makes cross-country journeying feel like one mile.

Unbiased love is the good stuff, child.
Give some today; be guilty of doling it out.

A good life is yours to live and requires not one day of pout.
Give it and it’ll come back to you; love uses a boomerang rout.

When was the last time that you were God-smacked with love?
I’m Qui
and I’m God-smacking you now. Open up, I’m coming in for the hug.

Let’s talk RELIEF

Khajuraho_temple_reliefband

What do you know about ancient and historic relief bands?
Appreciate the art and retreat from rolling into the gutter, man.

I only learned of relief bands in Art History while working on my BS degree.
Before that, it all looked like tempestuoussculpted works of art to me.

Still, I suppose it kind of does.
Understanding humans is a topic that I love.

India is responsible for the afore sculpture – several adorn many of their historic temples.
The craftsmanship of work is beautiful; from the tips of nips to the butt dimples.

Nothing about this piece looks simple. The work has stood the tests of time.
It was created between 900 – 1130 AD and shows up today in this rhyme.

Genius.
Reminds me of Venus

It’s not a bad view to be facing, if for nothing else to pass the time.
I’m looking at this particular band and I’m liking what I find.

Craftsmanship in every chip. What did you think I was going to say?
I could go on and on about “the positions” – we’ll save that for another day.

Let today yield a little mind-play. Also, take comfort in knowing that I am still that girl.
Let’s Talk Relief and how energy yields heat… let’s word play-it-up to the world.

Are you in, do you want to?
It’s nothing but for a hitch and screw.
Word-for-word it’s too easy to do.
Getting lost in various mediums of art is something that I’m into.

I’m also into you.
It’s Friday morning, honey – how do you do?

The weekend is coming and I pray that it’s sweet.
I’m the creative type looking to sculpt some relief.

Raise your leg (or hand) if you’re with me, and then start working toward sculpting today.

Good morning Monday. Good morning to you.
I’m up before dawn to griot a verse or two

about the world as I see it and as we live it.
I’ve got a lot of love for humanity and I love to give it.

Are you in the receiving mood?
Perhaps you’re like me – you’re a giver too?

The day is fresh and young… whatever will we do?
I’ve got “hot sauce in my bagswag” and enough to share with you.

.

Hot sauce? Oh, it’s flavorful seasoning – though we could go harder.
I’m perusing the hood to see what’s good; Monday is a Kickstarter.

Let today provide sufficiently for tomorrow.
Pencil yourself in: more happy, less sorrow.

You can do it! I’m doing it too.
Spring is on the way – she’s passing through

and you want to be sure to ride her refreshing take.
this Monday is a Kickstarter and all yours to take.

Use today to build-up Tuesday, and Tuesday will make way for the hump.
Wednesday’s vantage view will ensure that we get through; the weeks remainder is no slump.

Don’t be a procrastinating chump. Rise & shine and claim what you need,
I’m Qui
Kickstarting this Monday with thee – let’s be deliberate and sew a good seed.

REMEMBER:  Every deed leads to a reap.

Watch Out For That

In Griot, News, Self Improvement on March 13, 2019 at 7:54 am

 

snare_girl_trips_falls

Don’t get your foot caught

If it’s free, we often think it’s a trick and we may pass it up.
If it’s unobtainable some will steal and/or cheat – to get the stuff.

Why?

Watch out for that snare.
It’s a trick and that’s why it’s there.

You can steal a lot of stuff, even draw up a thieving plan,
but the truth is the only foolproof. God help the hearts of man.

Why make your plight
to win – even if it isn’t right?

I’m sure by now that you have heard
about the college admission scamming verb.

Word.

Seems rich folk have been unmasked
and revealed to appreciate a steal – but the look is bad.

“Hands up! You’ve been made,” said the FBI to several of them.
The collegiate admissions snare is an old trick with a lot of hems.

If we look closely at the business aspect of cheating and Rick Singer 
we can see that it is a winning business. Ouch! That’s the real stinger.

Yep. It’s been around forever –
it’s just that Rick’s scheme wasn’t so clever.

And that’s it. The End.
Educate yourself and you’re sure to win.

Educate, Cultivate and Elevate your skill

Don’t worry about the institutions that don’t or won’t let you in –
you just continue to read, research and learn; make Conquering Knowledge your best friend.

So my homie Conquering and I are taking a Film Portfolio class,
the syllabus is dope and I’ve no intentions to choke though it’s been known to kick ass.

There is a lot of work involved; Cinematography is a steady Science.
I wouldn’t think to cheat or steal my way through; my capacity is compliant.

Anytime someone brings up cheat, steal or lie,
I exit the room. I’ve no interest to try.

Integrity is real. I wake up with it.
Me, be a chameleon? You can forget it.

Plus I constantly keep one brow up
and all conversation is filtered through my gut.

My solar plexus.
Intuitive vibes do connect us.

I don’t care how elite Rick Singer must have been, the explanation of his business would have missed me.
I’d have been offended that my intellect was ill-comprehended; offering me his services would have dissed me.

And maybe even have pissed me off.
But I guess if learning makes you sweat — then you may pay the cost?

What are the thoughts of a man mindfully engaging in the ill?
Is he aware of the snare at the top of the hill?

Be it college admissions or Nigerian scams,
say NO to cheating when it comes around.

It’s just like beer, it’s just like drugs –
Friends don’t let friends be white collar thugs.

Surely you’ve heard that saying before… No?
Oh maybe not, because I just made it up, yo. 😛

It’s hump day baby and everywhere you go
I want you to be confident in what you know.

I want to encourage you to be your best and to keep it real,
I’m Qui
and if you don’t make the cut – please don’t cheat or steal.

Temptations lead to snares
Look behind dishonest inclinations
there’s a snare there.
Watch Out!

Wednesday’s Horseplay – AMERICAN GODS

In Communication, TV Shows on March 11, 2019 at 4:34 am

AmericanGods_Wednesday_characature.jpgAny chance that you caught last nights episode: House On The Rock?

At 5.5-minutes into the show, the cast took a carousel ride that delivered them into the mind of the man with the glass eye, Mr. Wednesday.  He told the tale of how American Gods worked their way into the hearts and minds of Americans and beyond. Gods in this series are Easter, Christmas, Sex, etc., also known as things, dates & events that people worship.  Each God is embodied as human representation.

barbed_wire_divider.jpg

Have you seen it and are you following?
It’s all fantasy; creative swallowing

is what you will use to understand and enjoy this piece.
The cast is emanation; the storyline yields an intoxicating release.

It’s something to comprehend and see,
the Cinematography skill fills the TV.

The shoot-out scene at 55-minutes into the episode
is the stuff of which griot tales are composed.

Great work, the set, the colors, the metaphoric grasp, and choke.
The shoot-out rendered Shadow Moon into the sky and got Wednesday’s homegirl smoked.

Season 2, Episode 1
reaffirms my yearn for cinematography fun.

I’m shooting daily and learning much.
I could still use help with my lighting touch.

It’s not yet easy to create the perfect lighting plot.
I won’t give up because I’m a persistent snot.

I’m putting in the work but cinematography is not my god.
It is a skill that I am dating for reel; it’s a Science that I like a lot.

You could call it my new honey pot in which case you could call me Poo bear,
I’m Qui
enjoying the DP work on American Gods. The visuals are bold and can hold a stare.
The subject matter is always creative batter and leaves the imagination little to spare.

Mr. Wednesday pulls them all in…

Unexpected Endings

In Communication, Griot, Movies, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on March 8, 2019 at 5:12 am

.
And so it is the weekend, baby.
I’m up early for the worm – I’m a shot-calling lady.

I was up late last night shooting scenes.
The FS5 is what I do. It’s my thing.

I am focusing on camera movement and lights.
I’m studying all of the greats so that I can bite.

Aye, aye, aye! I’ve got many homages to pay.
I’ve got a griot script that I need to slay.

Hey! It’s the weekend baby and I’m excited about it.
Stand the studio up and not assist the cut? I doubt it.

I am giddy to be shadowing such exciting cinematographers.
I’ve got to thank my collegiate curriculum for turning out reel cinema-ballers.

I’m all hers; New Skill can call me up anytime.
I’m guilty of always picking up the call line

because Unexpected Endings is what I find.
BIG UPS to Arizona Studios and their reel project grinds.

You never know what life will present to you when you set out on a journey…
I pray that you find new life during your life before resting on the gurney.

Go on and pray-it-back for me, too.
Today I’ve got so much stuff to do

that I could really always use a good word being put-in with the big guy.
I’m gonna also ask you to send up one more for Alex Trebek‘s quality of life.

I’m not a big JEOPARDY fan, but my mom loves it the most
and it seems pancreatic cancer has donned on the host.

If you believe in the Father, The Son and The Holy Ghost, the Holy Koran and such,
then yes, send up a good word for the sick and shut-in; do it out of love.

And that is my Ms. Community plea for the week;
a knowledge-heavy weekend is what I yearn and seek.

I’ve got 2 short films to direct and reel
if I intend to keep my honors appeal.

I know that you’re with me; I know that you understand,
I’ve got some scripts to birth and some eyes to land.

Heyyy! Hold my hand. It’s been you and I since the very beginning,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, let’s script a movie. I’m up for Unexpected Endings.

Throwing Papayas at Tobias – BLACK LIGHTNING

BlackLightning_RevPinky_Khalil.gif
.
Episode 11 took-out Reverend Pinky and Jade’s boyfriend, Khalil.
It had an emotional, roller coaster feel.

Episode 12 brought my girl Perenna (portrayed by Erika Alexander) back in.
Her metaphysics are strong like ethanol gin.

Hm. Let’s see… Where do I begin?

Thunder went into the trap and duly kicked the ass
of Black Bird & his crew – and then she took their cash.

For two reasons – if you’re inclined to ask:

1) for Black Bird putting his hands on his gal
2) to pay for Khalil’s funeral; because she’s a pal.

But stealing Black Bird’s money didn’t come without a price,
La Thunder chica almost lost her life.

Black Bird’s boys put it on her; they weren’t for that jive.
One of them mased her face and vulnerable became her life.

Though she healed up quickly and remains strong,
I’m digging her existence and hopes she goes long.

Dear Black Lightning:
Your new suit is exciting.

The series’ fresh content yields praise to the writers and to the producers.
Peep the above-the-line cast; magic is made by reel juicers.

At the conclusion of the episode we witnessed Khalil laid into the ground;
we also saw Tobias planning to live as Jade plans to take him down.

I wish I had a whole bag of rotten papayas,
I would throw them all at Black Lightning’s Tobias.

But when you really think about it, he is the sum of awesome character development.
I’m Qui
Digging Black Lightning TV; thus, it’s my pleasure to vent.

Way to nail a role Marvin “Krondon” Jones 3.
I enjoy your work on the BLACK LIGHTNING series.
