And Today is

In Communication, Griot, Music, News, TV Shows on August 31, 2020 at 5:48 am

Today is the beginning of another week of winning. I’m an early bird on the grinning, due to my nocturnal dream and the romp-winning 

that it entailed. I remember doing kegels and parallels. Today is going to be swell; I’m happy to be alive and I hope that you’re well.

Do tell if you watched the VMA awards? Were you satisfied with the winners and did the musical acts go hard? 

I didn’t watch it, but I read all about it. Headlines say ‘Gaga was the  -ish, and I don’t doubt it. 

The Weekend took home video of the year; best composition of scene — Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande took home best video during quarantine. 

KeKe Palmer was the show host, I do enjoy her vibe. I hate I missed the VMA’s; headlines read like it was live. 

And Today will exceed the weekends hype because you’ve got your health and you’re still alive.

I’m up early feeling a party-type vibe. In the season of Virgo I’m thinking of Fab5.

Today is his annual born day; in essence his pre-party was the VMA’s.

Michael Jackson‘s born day was 2-days ago and Bey’s birthday will be in fo.’

Virgo, o’ Virgos, we love you so. Your perfection plays out well in most award shows. 

And so today will surely follow the Virgoan suit. Power to the people who bear wheat and produce fruit. 

Happy Monday to you, as well as to all of the zodiac signs,

I’m Qui

And Today’s Virgo breeze is the best of its kind! 

Saturday Night Reasons

Good evening, most attractive. Exactly how goes your day?
Yesterday was a good Friday and I think today is going great.

Would you like a split peach onto your coveted plate?
Your taste is exquisite. Would you like it on your face?

wild-passion-kiss.gif

This kiss, that is. I’m about that affectionate biz.

Gee golly-whiz, I do love a little word play.
A good reason to indulge is always on a Saturday.

In romance novels, the man squeezes and releases her.
This is a good time for deliverance; for tomorrow is Easter, sir.

Shall I release first, pray tell? I don’t mind if I do.
Tomorrow there’ll be eggs in the lawn and life will be anew.

Ooo. Me and you. We can ‘sho be reflectively creative.
When it comes to us being natural; we are Root Chakra related.

We give no thought to it. We do not debate it.
Me and you… you and me… Root Chakra related. 😛

Therefore, on this night we do indeed have reasons
to delve into self and make-good on ignored seasons.

how-to-fake-a-headache

Have you a headache now? Un-uhn. Not tonight dear boys and girls.
Take some BC POWDER and a nice long shower then prepare to rock your mate’s world.

Make tonight hotter than Saturday Night Fever could’ve ever conjured.
Invoke love into the universe; be revived at the sunrise’s bonjour.

I absolutely think that we should.
I’ll bring the water, you bring the good…

liquor. At least I didn’t say “lick her.”

It would be inappropriate to post.
So, in the morning, how would you like your toast?

B.O.B. aka Buttered-on-Both sides? Of course after the bacon and egg combo surprise.

ancient-sexual-carving.jpeg

Got it! It’s been in the air for centuries – only I recently thought it.

I think  I’m going to exercise it. Surely this is the season.
The cv can’t stand the heat; indulge in Saturday Night Reasons.

Love making is a natural exercise. When was the last time that you were in the gym?
I’m Qui
Getting-it-in tonight, because tomorrow morning we’ll be revived by the church hymn.

It’s who we are as a people. We’ll get it all in, regardless of pew under steeple.

Am I right? Having said as much, act with natural reason tonight. Retire early with your beau or girly and make natural heat rise.

Jester or Majestic

In Communication, education, Griot, Movies, Networking, News, Video on August 28, 2020 at 12:04 am

Q: What is a jester?

A: A good understanding’s arrester.

Self hate and ill understandings invoke sore and fester. Civility is in a fight and the jester yells, “arrest her!”

Qui

Pay no mind to the jester. He does not understand that to wear such a suit is to be dressed by another man.

A fashion not tailored for the backside of his own hands. Oh man, oh, man. There’s no favor in being bland.

Whatever you do — don’t don a jester’s suit.

Use your energy and platform to help folks stay alive. Respect begets respect – via compassion, we all can thrive.

I know that you know who you are. You used to be folks’ favorite star.

Love? We still have it, so please search your heart. Your skill is a hoot; versed in scripted parts.

You used to make us laugh but these times require no “jest it.” You are bigger by dimensions but framing-up far less than majestic.

Momma always says “if you don’t have anything good to say – then don’t say nothing at all.“ I like to key-key & ha-ha, but not as much as I love to stand tall.

BAMBOOZLED – 2000| By: Spike Lee

“Every time I watch Bamboozled and especially when I see the Blackface Montage scene – I cry because it hurts just a little. Okay it hurts, a lot. The montage is composed of real, archived footage. #Truth. Well done, Sir Spike Lee.” Majestic.

Humping Horror

In Advertise, Communication, Griot, Networking, TV Shows, Video on August 26, 2020 at 5:15 am

Good morning beloved. How are you this morn? I’m awake, for opportunity’s take; I’m bright eyed with no yawn.

How art thou, multimedia kin? The week’s halfway – we’re halfway in.

I am poised to watch LOVECRAFT COUNTRY at its begin. Are you on-board with the series? it’s a Jordan Peele kin.

I am enjoying Angela Bassett’s husband starring as George Freeman. Jurnee Smollett and Jonathon Majors are Jim-Crow-surviving friends.

The series centers around negro and witch hunting. Episode 1 starts out with a lot of gunning,

but the melanin prey gets away to live another day. Misha Green is the co-creator with Jordan who birthed the way.

Lovecountry Craft airs at primetime on Sunday’s. With no UNDERGROUND series, HBO get’s all the play:

HBO – Based on Matt Ruff’s novel of the same name, Lovecraft Country follows Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) as he meets up with his friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett) and his uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father (Michael Kenneth Williams). This begins a struggle to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the terrifying monsters that could be ripped from a Lovecraft paperback.

Lovecraft Country is executive produced by showrunner Misha Green along with J.J. Abrams, Jordan Peele, Bill Carraro, Yann Demange, Daniel Sackheim, and David Knoller.

Are you watching this series? O’ do tune in. Sunday evening episode 3 will begin.

The rise of the sun always yields vampires a good singe… Season one is so much fun that the number of episodes produced are 10. Let the fight begin!

Monday Morning Party Play

In Advertise, Communication, Griot, Music, News, Video on August 24, 2020 at 6:36 am

Good morning griot readers. What headline is good for the mention? The DNC did their thing last week, today we do the RNC convention.

How did the weekend do you? Did you network well; did you play? Did you happen to hear that Kellyanne Conway put in her resignation today?

The wired news hit my cell phone when I was first waking up.  Seems she and her hubby are professionally retreating; arresting the couple’s-cut-up’s.

I’m sorry to hear that their careers are such stress holders. I hope that the both of them can heal and maintain each other’s shoulders.

The weight of the world should not reside in any single relationship. God bless the Conway’s remainder and the first lady’s spouse’s lips.

Shooting from the hip is fun until somebody gets sick and dies.  America needs new brake shoes to slow down the Corona vibe.

There’s word that it may come in the form of a quick vaccine.  I’ve little faith in the hill’s word, so none for me, please.

Not right now – anyways.  Monday is at hand with new conveys.

What is your objective, what is your agenda? Are you all set to vote? It’s going down in November.

Today is big for me, I have much on my plate.  I’ve got marketing packages to compose and relay.

Digital upgrades and maintenance content are necessary tickets. It’s a party all day over here, no idle time or crickets.

Reading and research will rule a large part of my day.  For B2C – there’s the Prius and me; gassed up and on the way.

Ride shotgun with me if you’ve got time off today.  Let’s network, think-tank, and workout with Kieaira LaShae.

A party is a party within a party of one or more,

I’m Qui

Today’s party will be at the RNC. God bless the factual score.

STAY FOCUSED.

Wait a minute Mr. Postman

In Advertise, Communication, education, Griot, Music, Networking, News, Video on August 21, 2020 at 5:47 am
My mailman is always happy on his route.

I have always been in awe of the postal office processes, the mailmen & women, and the postmaster. Because I had two aunts who retired from service and a cousin who is currently employed with the USPS (for decades now) – as a child, I thought every family had a member in it that worked for the post office; who wore those cute & comfort bearing uniforms:

The USPS brand palette of colors speaks volumes towards the services that they provide; delivering friendly, warm, comforting, and supportive parcels.

As a content creator, I couldn’t resist showing off the USPS’ Coolors. Coolors is a color palette generating tool that I use when creating visual content. Colors invoke emotion. Here’s a great write up on colors, branding, and how people react on 99Designs. It’s a quick read and I enjoyed it.

My multimedia composition career is a colorful one. Every day is new and every client brings a new campaign that needs to be composed, packaged, and delivered. I sit up, pop my knuckles, read the schematics, and drive home tailored text with images and an effective color palette to support the call to action.

Delivering digital content is my profession. Delivering mail content is the job of the postmaster and postal workers. Where are they and where is the mail?

Like Johnny Carson revealed time after time, no one knows and no one’s talking. In the red state where I live, delivering the community mail has long been a “contract gig” – at least for the last 3-years.

MY ANSWER: On purpose and to deter.

The reveal of THE QUESTION inside of the envelope that is pressed against my forehead reads: With November so close, what is the issue with the post office? 

I’m no swami, I’m a content writer; most researched best – though I, too, put on a COGIC hat and pressed an envelope to my forehead.

The letter was dated one month back, but I had just received it. The contents had long come to past – so there was no urgency to read it.

I’d already talked to the addresser and they wondered, ‘did the post office eat it?  Then the song of MJ started to play – in thought; mail delivery “word” is beat it.

And life is rarely a bore – refer to the Democratic Convention. Pack comfy shoes & to-go food before hitting the polls and voice intention.

Life is at hand – let’s make it grand.  Pause on writing letters and visit if you can.

Mail in your ballots early and vote as early as allowed. This is the year to give Democracy a cheer. Vote and be loud!

You got this. Consider your due diligence to be patriotic fancy.  Be sure to bring your ear buds and jam. Alas, you got this Annie.

I’m here with you. Support is always key!
I’m Qui

It’s the weekend baby – keep your eye on the U.P.

waking-beauty.gifGood morning good looking. Yes, I’m talking to you.
What did the weekend find you ‘pulling up to?”

Were you glued to the tube? Were you talking with friends
on topic Senator Kamala Harris and former VP Biden?

Okay, okay. I won’t go all-in,  though it’s important to be a sport.
I’m interested in arresting COVID19, so towards fresh perspective: I support.

To lose another life, I don’t want no more.
The Lord is our shepherd – in Him, we score.

More folks are paying attention and joining the band
to wear PPE across these United lands

and I couldn’t be more thrilled.

wear-a-mask_breath-kills

Thank you, America. We got this and Go ‘head!
May our logistical routes get well, and our itineraries be met.

We are not ‘out for the count.’ There’s opportunity here.
It’s not how you start out but how you end the year.

Let’s remain focused and we’ll be fine.
Participate in wearing PPE all of the time.

make-lemonadeParticipate in transforming lemons into lemonade
and kick this pandemic ‘thit into “our past” phase.

It’s time to revive celebrating.
remember “Hip! Hip! Horray-ing?”

Gosh, it feels like it’s been too long since we’ve done it.
If you agree — adopt wearing PPE and let’s all gun it!

Do not let up.
Go out for necessities only then stay in the cut.

The Covid era is a social rut. I know… I’m with you.
Let it not deter us from perusing a headline or two:

There’s new news on the line coming straight out of New York:
there’s a call for the public to return to being a quarantine sport.

The article is a good read; minutes to complete it are only a few,
but I can paraphrase the response of the people: “they don’t want to.”

Mask burn out. Absolutely. I get it.
Though if it stymies Covid19 – I have to dig it!

Don’t you?
I hope that you do.

What about the mail, remember playing “Post office?”
Keep the P.O. open. What’s the cost of this?

Let’s not be fooled again — for that’s been happening a lot.
There is no common mass fraud around US mail-in ballots.

go-vote

This is the knowledge that needs to be ‘got.
To be informed is to be sexy – knowledge is hot.

Do what you-need-to-do to cast your beloved vote ballot.
Love for the United States and you? Mmmph. I got it.

Rumored voices hint some representatives may be confession
time off is enjoyed, but congress is better served in session.

What do you think? I think that would be great!
There’s so much on the table; so much at stake.

I know, I know… you just want to take a break.
But the American people’s residences’ are up for take.

With American unemployment ticked-up quite a bit,
rent is rolling around to bank accounts full of lent.

There was a $600/monthly relief given to the unemployed,
until word from DC came in last week saying ‘$300 is much better noise.’

FORBES.com reported on that tidbit last week
and rent is coming up — as sure I speak.

In these matters, I am praying for “we”
to survive impositions from the governs that be.

Things are always their best at the beginning,
let us operate as if — and claim the weeks end a winning!

Give me a pound if you’re down. Are you down to do it?
I’m Qui
at Day 1 – confessing that I’m happy to [co-] go through it.

The News remains at hand, take a moment to Peruse it.

About The BIRTHDAY GIRL

In #SeveralLayersDeep, Communication, education, Griot, Music, News, Self Improvement, Video on August 15, 2020 at 1:51 pm

An intimate throwback, because The Birthday Girl has your back:

I ain't never cared | Qui Entertainment Magazine

About Life…

WHO ME?

I ain’t never cared what you think about me,
or how you’ve always been free

or about your ethnic background –
if you’re of gentile or jewish crown.

I have not cared one bit
whether Governor Christi is fat or fit,

or if Hillary Clinton still looks good in daisy dukes
or who the Repubs will poll as their next “leading suit.”

I have absolutely given it no thought – because I do not care,
tho I am interested in what is just and what is fair.

The Dream Act, the removal of the confederate flag, racism and marriage rights for the LGBT
are definitely issues that get my attention and concern me.

I am into all people feeling good. Inclusivity is generally best.
Thank God we don’t HAVE TO judge – so we can wear the nonjudgmental vest.

Yes! Marriage equality is LAW and the Supreme Court said so.
It no longer matters the way your heart pitter-patters – to the alter, you’ve the option to go.

I don’t reckon there’ll be too much of an influx to and fro – but if it is don’t make the subject HOT.
Think not about it, (if you morally doubt it), remain cordial and just give it to GOD.

qui_i-aint-never-cared.gifLOVE is the most of the things that God has instructed us to do.
So to my Christian fam – the good book is now talking to me and you.
Oooo. You’ve gotta embrace the truth.

Personally I don’t care who marries whom. I’m happy and wish all others to be,
I’m Qui
and I ain’t never cared about much beyond what’s fair, love, equality, and good deeds.

Thank God we’ve got a major civil issue out of the entanglement of our hair.
Just respect your brother and remember: An act of kindness shows God that you care.
THIS I care for.
XO!!

Wednesday’s Word Way

Let’s reach back and utilize a word that you already know;
the compassionate you has surely been called SIMPATICO?

Yes? — No?
Is this a word that you “personally” don’t know?

This is “WORD” atop of today’s hill.
Simpatico means sympathetic; a heartening will.

Simpatico and SYMPATICO are words that sound exactly the same.
They also have the same definition – Sympatico is the misspelled frame.

That’s all. And the week’s hump is still tall.
Armed with defined terminology – let their be no stall

in your day.
Recognize simpatico whenever it don’s your way.

Respond in kind
and all will be fine.

Feel free to care. Care. Care.
Karma will make sure the return is always there.

Be sympathetic when it is called for,
and when you are in need, it will be your score.

You are Simpatico – aren’t you? It’s okay, so am I.
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, lets sow simpatico under the sky.

Karma is carried by the wind of your deeds; the intent of your “try.”
Like a boomerang it will all come back to you; when the time is nigh.
