MLK — More Life and Karma

In News on January 19, 2015 at 9:32 am

MLKHappy MLK Day! I hope you have the day off
and are full of good health, with no kind of cough.

I am feeling pretty healthy – I am feeling pretty good.
However, yesterday I lost a soldier in my familial hood.

January 31st would have been the day
that he would turn 90 and we’d celebrate.

My dear friend and grand father crossed over real quick.
He was in perfect health – his exit was old age, not sick.

And THAT — dear friends is how we all want to go.
Living life like Warren Buffet until the end is so.

Life will end and if that is understood,
with each day you make Karma; so do a lot of good.

Plan to go to the Superbowl — and hang out with your friends,
I’ll be in the Phoenix-hood, making memories of good and chillin.’

The weather in AZ is fantastic, in a few months the heat will be a spinner,
right now it’s all good, The Superbowl and Tiger Woods rule the winter.

Congrats to the Patriots and the SeaHawks! Please accept my upside down frown.
I look forward seeing the shine of your beings and celebrating your super touchdowns.

No filming will be done today – I spent the weekend fully behind the reel.
The production is humming, the budget – firmly running. I love the way it feels.

Life. 

As of today, many have lost it, so be encouraged to )))embrace your being(((.
Raise your cup of juice or jo to the history we know of Dr. Martin Luther King.

If you’re a boot wearer, like myself, or from Funky Town in the Lone Star State,
Celebrate with me, the life of the 90-year old O.G., the captain, a Carter: LA.

R.I.P.
Lee Andrew “LA” Carter
January 31, 1925- January 18, 2015

Do some good, let loose and celebrate MLK.
Invest in your karma and help someone out today,
without doing it for pay! 🙂

I think the secret to reaping a long life may lie in how you live,
I’m Qui 
Loving on thee. I’ve got a lot of good karma to give.

Celebrate YOU today!
Peace and Blessings – Happy MLK.

How’s your KARMA

In Communication, Griot, Networking, Self Improvement on February 27, 2013 at 11:58 am

WHAT GOES AROUND…

What kind of karma are you building? What kind of future will fate be yielding?
The following 5 stories – are of karmic inherited glory:

Bad Butt Burt

He always played flagrantly when he was playing ball,
and when an injury hospitalized him – no one visited at all.

He never had a kind word to say to anyone about anything.
Soon he found himself lonely – because his phone would never ring.

He never listened to his parents. Their wisdom was an unwanted blur.
Now his own children won’t talk to him. What’s life-without-love worth?

Old Burt died early and no one was there to see.
However, what did survive him was his shady legacy.

Does it even matter to you and me?
The moral of the story: Don’t be a BBB.

Playful Polly

She thought it was cute to cut people down
until she realized her friends were no longer around.

And once the word got out, that she likes to back bite,
She found herself in quite a few unfortunate fights.

She would always poorly quip – ‘Girl – you know I was just playing’.
But words hurt deep & no one wanted to hear the quip that she was saying.

Precarious Carrie

She thought it was cute to sleep around with anyones man. That is until she fell in love and got married.
KARMA made it a 3-some when she found out her husband fathered the child her best friend carried.

Billy The [Other] Kid

Billy didn’t grow up with his dad but he always gave him top notch respect.
When his dad passed, he was sincerely sad & consoled by his new found DNA-connect.

By new sisters and brothers that he did not know.
But they embraced him firm – a familial show.

Unfortunately in life – Dad’s family really treated him (dad) bad.
Billy alone respected him & reaped (by will) every dime his dad had.

His new found DNA-connect retreated from Billy – then grew bitter and mad.
FYI: disrespecting your parents could easily yield you an inheritance lack.

Jilting James

He thought it was cute to slang drugs, cut everyone off and curse his father and mother,
until cop raiding season busted his game with reason –and an abandonment by his lover.

He thought his girl was down to ‘ride or die’.
She rode with cops and gave prosecution testify.

Oh my!

KARMA on a Can of Soup

ndy Warhol once glorified the Campbell’s Condensed Tomato Soup label;
50 years later Campbell’s is glorifying Andy – as best as they are able.

click to enlarge

How – you might ask? By creating and selling Special Edition Labels with reprints of Andy Warhol’s work on their Condensed Tomato Soup cans. There are only going to be 1.2 million of them in circulation and they will be available at TARGET starting Sunday [9/2/12].

The irony that only hindsight coule see is, back in the ’60’s – Campell’s Soup considered suing Andy for reproducing their label in his art until they realized his paintings were a huge phenomenon and Warhol was a massive hit. Eventually Campbell’s came to realize that Andy’s love of their soup can label was truly ‘Mmm mmm good‘ for their marketing legacy and they dropped the silly idea of a law suit. Whose reproducing whose work now?

Andy was a fan of the tomato soup can and consumed it most often, I am told.
He painted out of love and got a cold shouldered shove,
yet today he is honored as gold.

His soup rendition is still among the most popular reprints ever sold.

Sometimes we should let things marinate before we write them off.
Campbel Soup is much more cooler – post the work of Andy Warhol.

Good Morning Monday

shaping-up_change_Michael-Jackson.gif

Evolution is inevitable.

Good morning Monday, I’m so glad that you’re here.
My weekend was fair and yielded my thoughts clear.

The television did reign and sports did re-start;
baseball and basketball delivered with united heart.

It was good to see; team building & professional balling is great
but it doesn’t make a dent of difference against racial hate

or Portland, Oregon’s reality and fate. Their peace is on pause.
If we don’t support them – their issues may be the case of us all.

Music marks great moments; music inspires unity and a call to action.
New music is born for the #BLM, but Portland get’s Michael Jackson:

.

If we are not careful this will be the song across all 50 states.
Thank you Portlanders for pushing-back against hate. It’s not our united fate.

I care about you and what you’re going through.
Change is necessary; MLK did it too.

God bless New York, California, Chicago and other states
that have found that they are bound to jam Michael Jackson today.

It’s comparable to a black person’s historical and present fate.
Do unto others what you would have done unto you — is on the way.

Karma does not play. Stand strong for unity, civility and what you believe.
Tyranny gall will have to fall; protest until tyranny cannot breathe.

A new day yields a new breeze; resume your purpose after prayer.
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, if you bent a knee, divine help will always be there.

Dont Touch Our ACA Protection

What is going on American people?
You’re in a poo-house with a real short steeple.

Get out of the shitter!
Fight for the ACA. Don’t be a quitter.

The current administration is in court trying to take it away,
like we are all quarantining because today is a healthier day.

2-sisters-appauledWhat the? Get the ____ out of here with that BS heap.
Take from God’s kids and your own good health will cease!

Do you think that the universe doesn’t read ol’ QE?
Rest assured if you kill the ACA – your own creator, you’ll meet.

I may not get sick and fatally succumb to COVID19 —
but the world would be ridded of our beloved senior class scene.

The members of our current administration are older in age.
Back in the day we considered seniors to represent a wiser life phase.

This admin cabinet proves  – that such is not the case.
Why is the admin trying to repeal the ACA?

Too many folk are sick today.
Too many cannot afford their insurance rates.

Perhaps they can lean back on the ACA?
So why is the admin in court today?

They are working towards allowing you to sneeze, cough, and whittle
in your home with fam around or alone — but no ride to the hospital.

This has got to stop.
The American head-count is on a steep drop.

Have you lost someone to the virus? Are you, yourself not well?
The folk trying to take away your healthcare have personal invites to hell.

Their time on Earth is on a “slowdown” spell. It’s sad for me to fathom and to say.
I’m Qui
And God don’t like ugly. Hands off the ACA.

Dear Administration: Karma is real.
When you get sick, you, too will want to heal.

Be a LIFE SPORT
and abandon court.

Key BLACK HISTORY: Multi Media PLAYERS IV

In Communication, Griot, Movies, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on February 24, 2020 at 6:30 am


.
Alright, Good People: I’m at it again, with something that you can feel
in the spirit of Black History, I’m thrown back to JORDAN PEELE.

Have you seen the new Amazon series THE HUNTERS?
It parallels todays hell; the script is a punter.

I am enjoying the series install.
It’s a throwback view of — us all.

This show takes a particular look into hate,
the law, the people; a legacy page.

A lot is up for debate on this piece.
Composed of real stories, yet hard to believe.

Give it up people: for content creators who keep it real.
Give it up people:  for the history of Jordan Peele.

He is showing you yourself – regardless of your race.
The Hunters series has potential; may it take its place.

HOME. I am an American. The American way yields an intellectual key.
Home. I am an American; I am about her values and BLACK HISTORY.

BAD BOYS For LIFESpeaking of making history, let’s talk about Martin and Will —
and the alchemy of good times they have captured in their reel.

BAD BOYS came back this year and made history;
approaching $200 million box office reception carries mystery.

Like, why is it that folks have turned out to see them in show?
Is it likely we missed the days of wholesome entertainment, so….

We bought tickets to sit in the theater and be consumed
with yesterdays situation and these beloved two.

What is it about yesterday that invokes us to congregate,
pay a door fee in hopes to rewind history and improve today?

Whatever it is… let’s all hold to it.
When it comes to supporting Box Office Numbers
please continue to DO IT.

The BAD BOYS franchise is raking it all in
because yesterday was good and karma is a friend.

Not to mention that one of the cast members claims to be an Alchemist.
Both relate in laughter, though making gold belongs to Will.

He remains reflecting that “go getters appeal.”
Martin Lawrence is still the neighbor who ‘we feel.’

Scripting realities is quite the reflection of yet another —
Mr. Writer/Director/Executive Producer, Donald Glover.

Donald is Childish Gambino (the musician) and he knows full well,
what type of patience it takes to produce: A-T-L.

It’s been off of the air for a spell but is slated to come back with plenty.
In 2018 FX renewed for Season 3 and 4 to be broadcast the year after 2020.

It’s not easy being independent. So many of us want to be.
So give it up to the brother that embodies it; give it up DG/CG.

Which brings to mind another no limit storyteller
Curtis “50Cent” Jackson gets better and better!

Have you seen the view of his latest characteristic plight?
It stars Nicholas Pinnock in a new series called FOR LIFE:

Like Power, FOR LIFE takes off quickly.
The storyline is relative and connects swiftly.

A Multi Media Player usually plays more than one role;
an influencer of views to be told and to be sold.

Any chance that you’re watching either of these shows?
Your support is appreciated and I hope the show moves your soul.

Black History month is short and perhaps that was the calendar goal.
I am grateful for any reservations to culture-uplift and boast.

I’m a Multi-Media player; I write, chronicle, direct and shoot,

What is it that thou desirest? What will you do this year or you?

Everyday is uncertain, as is every breath in and out.
Your body is autonomous – but you don’t have to run routes.

No need to do more laps around a process that you have
that leaves you tapped-out of energy and with a block on creative gas.

Leave that route in the past. Today focus on building-up whatever you may lack.
Do it because you need to and ideas of ‘how to’ will begin to stack.

Go ahead. Give it a go,
And just like that, you’ll soon be a pro

at calling good energy your way.

I’m up early for the jo and inteclletual lift.

Communication.
I compose these pieces to promote positive relations.

Let anxiety and lack-of peace hit the door.
Tell old man lack that you ain’t with him anymore.

Don’t ever choose to — not do the best for you.
And just like that the universe will move to meet you.

Affirmations. Are you still saying them?
Practice them often and watch negativity hem.

Come on, it’s Friday. What are your weekend plans?
I’m over here feeling like a kid – kicking it with my fam.

My siblings and I are of the tightest knit, that God could sew.
A road trip to reconnect is on our legacy to and fro and so “on the road” we go!

Happy to pause world news; which continues to be a mess.
There are so many leaders, still, God knows best.

Please direct your life concerns to Him
and watch miraculous amounts of negativity hem.

If you don’t like the way things are going with and/or around you
a conversation with God will relieve all and pull you through.

And just like that – your vision will become clearer;
peace is always ours when God is nearer.

Get your peace. In this COVID era I am getting mine,

Go on and put in the work. Be mindful that you’re doing it for you.

The POWER of a Mid-Series Finale

Power_Opening_Title.jpg

 

Gimme got his neck broke messin’ with his kinfolk” and now folks are looking like “Who shot John and why?”

Have you ever heard either of those sayings?
They’re what folks in my community would say post a hood slaying.

Your name doesn’t have to be Gimme or John,
for you to act a fool and in the end, “get done.”

Gimme got his neck broke and John got shot.
Then the midseason of POWER Ghosted a drop.

Did you see the midseason finale?
There may be spoilers in this tally.

Let me start by saying that I have been pained every since this season began
knowing that I don’t have unlimited seasons with my scripted friends.

With a melancholy brow I buckled in at POWER’s begin
and invited the reality of ghosted karma to come in.

Walls closed in on Jamie St. Patrick from this season’s 1st Hour 
and the midseason finale was so fresh – that months later, it wont sour.

Tariq and his mother Tasha became a team – moving weight
out of her newly licensed and functioning day care space.

Yes child. You read that correctly.
Desperation so loud, each episode was deafening.

I remained tuned in and my tummy was consistently gripped
as Tommy grappled with heartbreak and put Ghost on his hit list.

tommy-eagan-power-Keishas-death.gif

Oh yes, and Tommy. Let me bring you up to speed.
Someone in his circle killed LaKeisha; a small circle of 3.

The circle consists of Tariq, Tasha and he.
Tommy is sure Ghost did it, but naw Keisha was smoked by a T.

Ha! Did you see that coming? Tasha paid Keisha an impromptu visit —
and assessed the luggage in her foyer to mean Keisha turned snitchett.

Keisha pulled a gun on Tasha, as if to threaten her with croak,
but Tasha took the gun from Keisha and Keisha got smoked.

It was brutal, I was heart broken. In her new home LaKeisha got “got.”
Tasha put one in her core, but the fatal blow was a head-shot.

Tommy was the person who found her body; he and Cash had picked out a ring…
Tommy walked into the foyer of his home and there on the floor, bled out his dreams.

Thus, his current mood towards Ghost; LaKeisha was his world.
Tommy thinks, surely this is Ghosts’ revenge, for killing his girl.

Angela Valdez showed up in the midseason finale, too, but gave us no hints
of how TRUTH would cash in on “the rent” — or how karma would be spent.

Ghosts-last-stand-Season6.jpeg

‘Ghost is unstoppable. No one can get in his way,’
at the top of the latter, like Caesar, he met his slay.

E tu Brute? — Well Brutus wasn’t there.
The person who smoked Ghost, was a person who used to care.
At the tube I did stare.

I love the scripted characters therein; this show is an exciter.
The powerful display of character composition is appreciated by this writer.

Ghost is a fighter. I can not say what is up nor what is down.
I did see Ghost fall from a 2nd story landing, but not hit the ground.

Marketing for the upcoming series reminds me of that old DALLAS line,
folks are saying “WHO SHOT GHOST“, like he’s JR – and all will be fine.

I DVR’d it and I did rewind.
The hole in Ghost’s chest looks “fatal co-signed.”

The reality in the series ending is also a metaphor for many other things.
For instance, if you’re in the drug business: karma is a boomerang. Ding-ding!

Perhaps an unlawful business isn’t a longevity scene.
Kudos to the POWER series production; your creativity is mean.

power-cast-1.png

Talent yielded = Raw and clean.
Above and below the line: you all are beast.

power-cast-2.png

I look forward to your soon-enough return.
You’ve got folks out here talking about Ghosts’ burn.

A standing ovation to ya.’ Especially the way that you made us think this was the end,
only to close with a little note, that you’ll be back again.

Ahhhh. I do like the way that you do it,

and no character is too righteous for you to say screw it.

Life. Paddle through it.

I once had a friend named Cheryl who was married to a dude named Bobby.
They were from Wichita Falls and to ‘be country‘ was more than hobby.

When Cheryl would come-up on something good she didn’t have to call me,
I’d hear her boisterous-stereo-lungs yelling “Yee Doggy.”

I’m from Dallas, Texas originally, and Cheryl was an implant.
Today I’m the guest in a foreign land and of good energy – I must vent.

Yee Doggy!

Today is Friday and this week has been quite the spinner.
From Monday to this very moment karma has been eating dinner.

Where are Cheryl and Bobby today? I miss them dearly.
She gave and received big energy like mine; thus she never feared me.

Folks:  Today is one of those days where the time is yours right now
to do what you want, say how you feel, and still be loved anyhow.

I love you.
Yee doggy!
Do you love me back?
Karma is a boomerang-girl eating more than a snack.
Did you see that?

Anytime is a good time to recognize your bad,
change your tone and be  a calibrated lad.

Gas, break. Gas, break. If you feel you have to.
Yee Doggy comes up when you find your groove.

Enjoy your life; you have the capacity to make it smooth.
I’m doing me and looking forward to you doing you.

Don’t sacrifice your life for others who are not FOR you.
