Its KEY

WEDNESDAY is a God but I’m thinking about Mr. NANCY

Good morning Orlando Jones! Appealing you are in silk threads; so fancy.
I fashion your contribution of live vibes that you yielded to Mr. Nancy.

Good morning beloved griot readers. Summer is upon us and is simmering hot.
And besides the STARZ character: Vulcan, Summer gets no AMERICAN GODS.

Season 1 laced us with hot sauce during those scenes of Mr. N. visiting slave ships,
suggesting that the slaves comprehend “life’s thwarted end” and to “boat dip.”

Boat dipping is my paraphrase for what was so delicately laid in the script,
for those who don’t know, the God portrayed by O, told them to “sink the ship.”

The slaves, in turn (and in different tribal lingos) communicated that they, too would perish and die.
Mr. Nancy is not chancy but calculates risks and responded, ‘you’re basically dead… so bye!

Several American bound slave ships went down over oceans and seas.
History chronicled no “ship-derailed details” — so we’ve got Mr. Nancy.

Amazing composition.  Creativity is on lock!
Mr. Nancy influenced many slaves to miss the slave dock.

And for that he rocks! Orlando Jones is the versatile bombs-diggity!
I fell for his talent-capacity-palette when he was a member of MAD TV.

I also fell for his talents in EVOLUTION. This guy is a riot for good laughs.
And then I caught 2 of his stories on THE HAUNTING;  Kim Russo‘s  old broadcast.

He is the joint.
But what is AMERICAN GOD’s point?

Coronavirus-Green-GFX-1-860x484Well, they did not return in 2020 for season 3
and COVID19 is the “rumored word” on the street.

But it ain’t COVID19’s fault completely,
and Orlando Jones will not be on Season 3.

What the what-what STARZ TV!?
Me thinks, lack of cohesive creativity
is holding back season 3.

What was the problem with Mr. Nancy?
Marking his exit was hella’ chancy…

But you did it.
Orlando’s scripting capacity...we won’t forget it.

Yes, Orlando Jones took to scripting Mr. Nancy in Season 2.
Being cut before word of season 3 is a fine ‘how do you do.

Ah, but it’s no bust! The show was diverse, but now it’s clear,
American Gods roll like perm rods — but isn’t so curly this year.

Crazy cast eruptions
yield little production.

I was captivated by American Gods as Shadow and Mr. Nancy walked us through season two.
Unfortunately, this is where I step off; I’m bidding another skin-shedding series adieu.

Not because Mr. Nancy’s gone; for cast changes are a flash in the pan —
I bid adieu to American Gods because I’m not sure they understand their Black fans.

Nothing new. Much respect. Carry on and why stop?
I’m Qui
with Oprah-atic dreams; streaming beyond American Gods.
