The Haunting of LOU GOSSETT Jr.

The Haunting Of Louis Gossett Jr.

My goodness did you see who Kim Russo met up with just the other day?
It was Louis Gosset Jr. and child, he had a lot to say.

I mean, Hey-eyy! He’s still looking good
though his concerns were more with the supernatural hood.

Something happen to Lou while shooting a film, based in truths frame,
about a guy being killed, and an innocent man taking the blame.
The film was shot near the sugar canes.

The year was 1987 and the film was called GATHERING OF OLD MEN.
Lou was residing in a hotel near the sugar can fields with other crew and friends.

However one night whilst he was sleeping and sound
3-5 male spirits (one in chains) at his footboard, did gather ’round.

They seemed to be yelling at him and he felt them pulling at his arms and feet,
Then his great grandma’s spirit appeared with authority and ushered them off of the scene.

Lou always wondered ‘what did it mean‘ and ‘why did it happen to him?
This was his sole reason for hooking up the psychic detective, Kim.

Kim showed up at the Louisiana sugar canes
and measured the energy: anxious and one in chains.

It seemed many years ago and on that land
there was a riot of some sort betwixt a band of black men.

Lou Gosset Jr. was there in 1987 to film show
and the commonalities betwixt art and life blended like whoa.

Kim’s team revealed that history does recall
that in an earlier day, a life did fall
and an innocent man did indeed take the blame
and the outcome of the situation was mortality lame.

Meanwhile, in the cinematic piece that Lou was filming
he played the part of an innocent man in a very comparable feeling.

Based off of truth — some details were changed
still parallels were so strong that they somehow blurred lanes.

Kim gave Lou’s account ‘gut thought,’ and confirmed
this situation is a moment from which he was to learn.

she explained,
The men in spirit that showed up at Lou’s footboard
were there to deter him from a mistake that he couldn’t afford.

History was stained with blood and kept fresh in time
with what happened to the man that did that – last time.

The innocent man who confessed back in the day,
lost his life for peace’s sake.

The free men that showed up including one in chains
were there to convince Lou not to do the same.

Believe it or not,” says Kim, but ‘spirit was confused…
they didn’t recognize this was just a role and that your craft was in use.’

Kudos to you, Lou Gossett Jr., for getting lost in the role,
this explained why great grandma showed up and told the ‘men of the past’ to go.

This was a pretty rad episode. I enjoyed the revelations of the journey therein,
I’m Qui
a griot she – giving The Haunting Of another literal spin.

It’s too interesting not to choose it –
Lou’s account hooked me and made me do it.

Glued to the tube – Who got the lube

I tried to look away…

Another day is closing on the impeachment hearings.
No funny hashtags emerged with metaphorical endearing’s.

There was a lot going on. I was watching. Were you?
According to the rating polls — you were glued-in too.

I know you saw it. I tried not to.
I left the house, merged with the crowds
and networked the morning through.
Everywhere that I went, regardless of the dollars I spent –
it was all about the “U:”

Unity & Under-dogging.
The two merged and displayed “cover story” flogging.

A lot of cover story’s may not “cover much” anymore.
If this moment were a bed — “the duvet” is on the floor.

Code red – code red.
The cover is off of the bed.

pink-panther_karate-chop-table

But maybe it’s still on the table; the truth.
This is a moment, where I could use a call from Aunt Ruth.

You already know what she would say in a time like this.
She’d round up the posse for comments and she would not miss.

Always tell the truth and no one can touch ya.
Aunt Ruth would high-five that and then hug ya.

She was about the truth, so there’s no need to say …
The truth showed up big time in hearings today.

And so, we’re all “Glued to the tube – Who got the lube?
Somebody’s getting it in; dildo is truth.

There were three amigo’s and a couple of other folk…
Necks and shoulders are heavy; hearings yield yolk.

Oh no and whoa. Who knew the hearings would be this real and so swift?
I’m Qui
I rewinded a time or three, it’s hard to believe this isn’t a series script.

Now turn the television off. Let’s cut a corner; let’s dip.

LIVE – New Content Creation

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, TV Shows, Video on November 11, 2019 at 7:04 am

1_evil_cast.jpg

Those who blur their work and their play are indeed considered living masters.
Have you been watching CBS’s new series spelled LIVE – but pronounced backwards?

Did you ever see the 1985 film FRIGHT NIGHT? Do you remember the little side-kick weasel
who ran along-side the good-looking vampire? His character name was Ed “Evil.”

CBS’s new hit series starring Mike Colter, former actor of LUKE CAGE fun –
Is now administering to humanities fester; praying against “Society Becoming Numb.”

I recently found the series and its already 6 episode’s in.
I’ve quickly caught up to current broadcast; for I’m a DVR kin.

The matter therein broaches the topic of sin.
The content therein is an EXORCIST‘s friend.

It’s truly good stuff; it’s not a comedy but a discerning drama.
It won’t scare you to hell, but it may invoke you to call your Moma,

if you were raised like myself; I was raised in the church.
Differentiating spiritual from physical – the distinction never hurt.

It’s GOOD LIFE STUFF that you may need to know.
Give it a looks’y; comprehend it and grow.

Another breakout series on-the-rise is a distant relative to CBS’ show:
“HIS DARK MATERIALS” is the tale-title of a new fiction on HBO.

It stars a couple of young protagonists
who surely have NARNIA on their speed dial list. ‘

Have you seen it? It’s a tall glass of water to quench thirst
of anyone like me (and perhaps thee) who likes fictional firsts.

Theres an alethiometer on this show.
Introduce me to a new word — and there I go!

alethiometer_Dark-Materials

It’s a device used to LEARN THE TRUTH.
Fictional word says it’s Lyra’s… I say it’s my Aunt Ruth’s.

Do you remember my Aunt Ruth? She’s the fine one; quick-to-relate and hug ya.
She’s also the one who lived life in the bold; she’d no qualms with saying “fuck ya,”

if the truth was not in your voiced rendition.
Mike Acosta lacks the tool, but he has his “visions.”

Both EVIL and HIS DARK MATERIALS are new and budding shows.
Both have great content, tho, by their names you wouldn’t know.

I really can’t say why the title packaging is so obviously dark.
I suppose its the perfect cover to parallel the in-obvious stark.

I’m clearly into character composition; I’m also about non-obvious titles,
I’m Qui
Up early at this start of this week, because I dig avid watchers and show exciters.

WHO am I?
I’m WHO, the writer.

No Debating HIGH RATINGS

In Communication, Griot, Music, News, Self Improvement, Video on October 23, 2019 at 6:26 am

neurosciencenews-lies_vs_truth.jpeg

Today is a big day, yesterday was a big one too.
It’s seems a whole lot of dark stuff is in popping up in the news.

It seems that all it took to deliver us here was an honest-man speaking truth.
It’s all that I’ve ever longed for, reminding me that I miss my Aunt Ruth.

Yes, I do talk about her a lot. Let her name comfort and hug ya.’
Aunt Ruth was about the real and if you couldn’t deal, she’d say “fuck ya!”

I miss her dearly and I hope that you know
that “middle-finger comment” isn’t from me, but  Aunt Ruth’s quote. 😛

So why the HIGH RATINGS last night? What, pray tell is Congress’ view?
Well, it looks like impeachment is around the corner as well as several #PrisonBlues.

How hard can it be to tell, hear, and digest the truth?
I hit up E-40 for an honest POV; a culture-reflective view:

Things are only low for those who have chosen to lie,
to not support the Constitution nor the quality of our lives.

The Kurds are losing theirs; their level of safety is bane,
and then there’s the issue of: quid pro quo and Ukraine.

So why the HIGH RATINGS? We’re in no position to gloat or flaunt.
I believe the ratings are high because this is a moment the people want.

There’s NO DEBATING that the world has been in a funk.
God still has our back and the new script isn’t bunk.

You don’t have to stay-tuned to the news, God will make the truth a prompt in your throat.
May honesty be your shotgun buddy and ride with you on every to and fro.
Having said as much, things are looking up, yo.

Good morning baby, we are mid-week already.
I woke up this morning feeling fly like Blondie and Fab5Freddy.

Everybody’s still fly, right?
I’m Qui
Digging the high ratings for more truth and less debating; I’m about that HONESTY life.

In The Loop

in-the-loop.pngA new year, the same me, the same you, and a new view.
In the spirit of yesterday’s News Peruse,
we’ll tie headlines together In The Loop.

The COWBOYS played the SEAHAWKS over the weekend and defended their playoff presence.
The EAGLES followed that cab and manifested their own “W” blessin.’

The Cowboys are slated to play the RAMS next;
each in pursuit of a Super Bowl respect.

Are you watching? Are you up on the NFL Loop?
How about the un-looping of lies; i.e, telling the truth?

I wish the White House administration could call my Aunt Ruth.
Like Jacob, she wrestled when honesty was aloof.

She wasn’t about that bull.
If you lied to her – a backhand kept you full.

back-hand.gif

Mm-mm-ughhhh. It would hurt so bad,
but it’s what was needed to curb a lying lass.

Wake up, look alive and live in the truth.
You can’t trump life’s backhand; keep honesty In The Loop.
Do it for you.

Keep excellence In The Loop; the fabric of your character is always on display.
Regardless of the government’s shutdown, employees should go out and play.

Don’t let your gig ruin your day and expend your vote at every opportunity this year.
2019 is a more awake and progressive scene and wisdom is your fishing spear.

Use it to plant seeds and use it to harvest fruit.
Whatever you do, please remain true and keep me In The Loop.

I’m crazy about you and this fresh Monday start,

Tying a loop that connects to your News Peruse heart.

Let’s stay connected.

Feeling POWER

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on February 3, 2020 at 6:43 am

I’ve got a feeling that today is going to be tops!
I also enjoyed Cedric The Entertainer on POWER as Pops.

Well, I didn’t expect to blurt it out like that,
but once I caught up on POWER I was lain flat

as to #WhoShotGhost.
My mind has been worked to and fro

until we came to the end of episode 14
where Jamie’s nightmare seems to be shaping-up as Tariq’s dream.

Did you feel something in the pit of your gut
saying, “My God, do you hate yourself that much?

That’s a question for Tariq and those who agree
that his anger should billow and rage like the sea.

But to what end?
Ghosts DNA resides within.

So will Tariq hate himself too?
If he is the reaper – heartbreak is TRUTH.

At current we don’t know much, but we do know fate —
and it is rising up via the storyline of Congressman Tate.

lahmard-lorenz-tate.jpgI enjoyed seeing Tate work with his biological big bro.
Sandwiched between Lorenz and Lahmard is the way to go,

says the femme viewer with the giving smile.
There’s no sleep on the last leg of the POWER mile.

You know, I hate to see it go.
I kind of wish it was like that FRIENDS show.

Remember how long they went on?
I believe it closed when their grandkids were grown.

Oh, I’m kidding.
But when the getting is good – we keep giving.

Did you feel that Tommy made the right move?
I think he saw the killer before cutting a new groove

in his inherited purple muscle machine.
Ghost left it for Tommy to exit the scene.

Stage right.
Episode 14 was alright.

I’m a girl of numbers; I’m a girl about letters and scenes.
To know me well, I like increments of 5; esp. the number 15.

The last episode of POWER is slated to air on Feb. 9th; next week.
I’m sad to see it end with all of my friends – this series is an emotional beast.

A common and dysfunctional release was emitted at every broadcast.
Still the people connected to it and 6 seasons went fast.

The good news is that each cast member is free now to commit to other projects.
I first knew of Omari Hardwick as Shavoo on a Comedy/Drama set.

Good times. I shant forget:

and

There’s power in not being typecast for too long.
Omari H. is easy on the eyes and his diversity is strong.

Make me laugh. Make me cry. Invoke me to feel fresh and sour?
Well that is indeed the science of cinematic power

and STARZ has the gauntlet, but not for much longer,
I’m Qui
Good morning Day 1. I reserve the write to compose stronger.

PS –  I just want to include a shout out to the lead actor on GOD FRIENDED ME.
He played Cedric’s son last night; a friend to crime until it became his enemy.

And so

In Comedy, Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on October 21, 2019 at 4:45 am

Mick gave us his word, before his word was dead.
That’s when I stood up to clarify the moment and said:

oh-no-he-didnt_DamanWayansJr.gif

But he did. He took back what he said 5-hours prior
when the press corp was in the room and he had the floor.

Weird moments in time have been popping back up
since the media started rewinding “honesty cuts.”

You know, “honesty cuts?” That’s when someone has a moment of clarity
and blurts out the whole-hearted truth then pretends it was all parody.

You gotta be kidding me! And so I just thought I’d mention
what is constant reality in this era’s indention.

It’s an integrity issue and it keeps on happening —
“honesty cuts” show up before faux-talking-point dampening.

Why?
What does it cost you to live a big lie?

I wouldn’t know.
The “lie-laden route” is one I don’t go.

And so today my integrity is in check but not my Vertigo.
I woke up yesterday morning thinking I was on a boat.
Do you know Vertigo?

It’s a relative to TMJ so here I go.
I got this though.

It will not keep me from chatting it up with you.
It will not delay me from honesty and spilling the truth.

As sure as my beloved Aunt’s name is Ruth,
honesty and integrity should rank out-the-roof.

Put no ceiling on that, kinfolk.
And pray for those who lack its show.

Leadership qualities are the bombs and so
I’m eating up the course that’s on my degreed to-and-fro.
It’s a must, yo.’

Good morning kinfolk. What-it-look-like outside?
Are you up for the challenge? Are you down to ride?

If so, I’ll step off of this boat that dubs as Vertigo,
I’m Qui
accepting nothing in my way that keeps me from play, and so

Black History is Our Legacy

black-history-month-icon.jpg

February is one of my favorite months
because it represents love so very much.

While it’s a giving month it’s not too long.
What it lacks on long it makes up for in strong.

Like black coffee, this month and I are strong.
I like to make my points quick and not take too long.

Expresso?
I suppose so.

I like life strong.
In such a short month my mentions go long:

Don’t sleep on MASTER P and his NO LIMIT legacy.
Since 1989 he’s been on shine for the world to see.
His dimensions have depth,
Peep his journey; peep his steps:

Percy is always a favorite subject of mine.
I like my men like my coffee; fresh in grind.

I am mindful that there would be no Master P if first he were not birthed a baby,
so I have to yield Black History Props to the all-encompassing Black lady.

Good morning, good morning:

Key-blk-women

Good morning to you.
Qui is indeed Black History, too.

Big props to your mom, your auntie, that Black woman at your job.
It’s okay if you LOVE ON US all-at-once; we can handle the mob.

I am a BLACK WOMAN and I love every stitch of my fabric.
I love Adam’s seed who confesses that he’s a femme addict.

Come with it – WE give it.

Education is a great foundation on which to stand,
please tell me that you still kick it with Dr. Umar, man?

An educated community has always been his goal and plan:

As far as my personal diet goes – I’m trying again. 😛

There’s an interest to pay homage to Black folks who are willing to evolve.
A fixed mind suits little, let an open mind be our collective find and resolve.

The task is not small and I see honing in progress.
To what the world is trying to hurl… I retreat and digress.

To remove thyself from the rigmarole – is always best.
Remain positively focused and you’ll pass this test.

Humping Life

happy-birthday-dad.jpgYesterday was my Dads birthday; the fact was embedded in my sublime.
No one called to remind me, still – all day he was on my mind.

Life is kind. I smiled and laughed aloud once I realized
It was my Dads birthday. ‘Twas a pleasant surprise.

Today upon rising I am still happy.
I slept in a silk bonnet to stave off ‘nappy.’🤣

The first thing I did was read scripture, pray and meditate,
Then I ran downstairs yo! – to fetch a cup of jo and duly start the day!

I’m happy to be alive to thrive in this vibe. Please tell me how you feel?
My dad checked out on May 3rd then my Aunt – on Monday morn. Unreal.

I was still on the heal from my Dad leaving us and now my Aunty has taken the lead.
If a broken heart was literal I’d be suffering an excessive organ bleed.

Sometimes it feels like … “Ooo wee.”
So I just keep it moving –prayerfully.

While I’m emotionally in transit dare I repeat and say,
I am still interested in you. How do you feel today?

Baby are you okay? I pray this day does treat you swell.
After all your health care was not repealed away and is doing quite well.

Whew! What a chaotic scare and the Republicans are in no way through.
In order to divvy tax cuts for the rich they’re dipping into medicades pool.

save-the-aca-protest.jpgDon’t stop showing up to those town hall meetings or those protests in the street
If healthcare for every American citizen is what you want to see.

Every time you let up from showing that you’re fed up they take your inch and stretch it a mile.
Your decency overriden and your good sense smitten while politicians play vile.

I know, dear child. I’ve already humped satellite news and early, yo!
I’ve been up since the night-to-day crux . I ushered in MORNING JOE.

And so here we go! The sun is up and we are effectively on the hump.
Today holds excitement; in my throat there’s a lump

In my solar plex; my tummy, I truly feel butterflies.
Today the limit is set pretty high – way beyond the skies.

rise-people-standup.gifSo rise kinfolk, rise! — if in you there is life
And call up that estranged fam  member and write off any strife.

Then hump on the back of this vibe that is about today,
And ride that girl like she’s yo’ own. Today is all your day!

Take life in with every breath that you draw
Today is another opportunity to move forward past Hem & Haw.

Remember them?

Gird yourself with wisdom and be kind to all that you meet,
I’m Qui
Happy Hump Day to ya, kinfolk. Life with you feels oh so sweet.

from the side chicks with short wicks who were looking for a quick fuse
