The feds go at it – over NJ traffic

QE 4 Chris Christie

Christie charges ahead in the face of investigations

— So traffic was backed up for miles, and many hours at the bridge,
But what does that have to do with our beloved Governor Chris?

It seems 20 subpoenas have gone out so far
and counsel leading the investigation is Reid Shar.

It seems they are probing slight hints of bullying relations
as it pertains to the governors administration and partisan retaliations.

It seems State Senator Majority Leader Wienberg, and Mayors Fulop and Zimmer
were inspiration for the traffic jam per accusatory whimper.

The media is all over this story and Gov. Christie is trimming his staff.
His attitude has done a 360 – less sarcasm-witty; a much less rude bask.

I like the governor and I sure hope he’s not fibbing 
in saying the jamming of traffic wasn’t his for the giving.

With 2 investigations under way, via scrutiny eyes much will be seen
of the governor, a possible presidential candidate in 2016.

It’s all happening so fast. How can we possibly pull up and get past this?
A scandal’s stacking-up in Jersey so tough, like that GW bridge traffic.

Morning Joe can’t take it no ‘mo

Yes! You know I’m a lover of the show
and this morning ol’ Joe couldn’t take it no ‘mo.

QE 3 Morning JoeHe so wants folks to quit talking about Bridge Gate, 
to the point that he’s willing to down grade Benghazi Gate.

Oh wait! Cease your stray – don’t walk away from the rhetoric now.
Benghazi is a party favorite – a real partisan pow!

Joe is a pretty compelling talker in his staunch republican ways.
I may not agree to his bended plea, but I dig the way he plays.

I wake up eager to Morning Joe these days, just to see Mika’s face
and watch Joe scuffs down his Starbucks brown and hail his conservative space.

As for his boy Chris Christie, I hate to say it, but we’re just getting started.
And if details are as raw as Christies brass jaw, it won’t bode well for the faint hearted.

Be of good cheer if you support him, for among polled citizens
of those who believe he is innocent equaled 44 percent.

Polling is significant – we all enjoy consensus crunchers
So here is FactCheck.org on Obama’s statistical numbers:

The SeaHawks can’t rise above or get no love

Every since they clinched a spot in the Super Bowl
It seems “to belittle Sherman’s passion” is the way to go.

Why is it if a jock-like white politicians yell in press conference at others — he’s just a guys guy.
But if a jock champion yells in a microphone after clinching a title, he’s out of place – gone awry?

Seattle Sea Hawks WINHe’s barbaric on the field and t’was on the field he commented in press.
Perhaps Morning Joe should trade off Sherman’s hate mail for a Bridge Gate rest.

I rather liked Richard Sherman’s shout out to Crabtree.
Foul conversation @ NFL line’s is like traditional ooo wee.

That information is not just privy to me,
There’s a real dogmatic force behind sports broadcast on tv.

Sports live-in-the-arena are fun too and far more graphic,
but not nearly as rough as sitting 4 hours or more in traffic.

CHARACTER Much

In Communication, Griot, Movies, News, Science, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on September 3, 2019 at 4:45 am

WESTWORLD encompasses the epitome of Character Creation:


.
Please tell me, (especially if you’re the reader/writer type) that you have at least a mental bank of bad-arse characteristics and traits that you like your film subjects to possess. If you said you don’t – it’s likely that on the surface you do not realize that you do. Whatever your favorite movie/show is – the protagonist (star) of that show or their co-star (that keeps you glued to the scene) possesses some type of bad-arse characteristic that you like.

Me? I’m a writer. I create stories — most are inspired by life circumstances and situations. I craft them from specific highlights to broadly general, depending on what “the message” calls for. Story is told through characters. I love dissecting and creating new characters – so yes, I CHARACTER Much.

I have learned a lot from some of my favorite shows of the past – and not all were fiction. I am still learning tons about character traits from my current favorite shows like BILLIONS and SUCCESSION. Don’t even get me started on the content inside of POWER’s character bible. I’ll bet it’s intense and likely a bit shocking, but I’m up for the read.

Let’s look at some very familiar and strong characters that I admire:
Click the name of the show to learn the inner-workings of the character. Click on the actor/actresses’ name to read more about their social-media life.

LOGAN ROY (Succession) – The actor who pulls it off: Brian Cox
BOBBY AXELROD (Billions) – The actor who pulls it off: Damian Lewis
OLIVIA POPE (Scandalous) – The actor who pulls it off: Kerri Washington
ANALISE KEATING (How To Get Away with Murder)  – The actor who pulls it off: Viola Davis
TOMMY EAGAN (Power) – The actor who pulls it off: Joseph Sikora
JAMIE ST. PATRICK (Power) – The actor who pulls it off: Omari Hardwick
RILEY NORTH (Film: Peppermint – 2018) – The actor who pulls it off: Jennifer Garner
MAEVE MILLAY (Westworld) – The actor who pulls it off:  Thandie Newton
LARA CRAFT (Tomb Raiders) – The actor who pulls it off, Angelina Jolie
LORRAINE BROUGHTON (Atomic Blonde) – The actor who pulls it off: Charlize Theron
MINNY JACKSON (The Help) – The actor who pulls it off: Octavia Spencer

What characters, characteristics, and traits do you admire; which ones inspire you? Have you ever adopted any of those traits for yourself? If you have not – I wonder what adopting a new trait would look like in your life. If you have adopted a trait from a favorite character – I’m curious as to how that’s working out for you?

filmstrip_divider

I won’t lie to you, I have a little bit of all of them residing inside of me.
I CHARACTER Much for specific benefits; I CHARACTER Much for film and TV.

I rarely watch a thing without analyzing the dialogue and who’s saying it.
I rarely watch the view of any hue that’s half-hearted and not “slaying it.”

I like to learn, people. I enjoy experiencing and mirroring what moves you.
I CHARACTER Much after studying such, then I craft a comparable role in a new groove.

Award-winning compositions are proof that character traits “make the show,”

Life imitates art all of the time. Does your personal character have any glow?

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,

3 years, 9 months ago Journal 930 reported on a study,
about WHO MAKES A BETTER SEXUAL BUDDY?

Is it the Dem or the Repub?
Seems the elephant gets a lot of love.

In the article on Journal 930 they concluded
Repubs have the best sex — the “ass” has eluded.

How did they prove this? Likely by a polling of peeps.
I did my own study and I don’t mind if I speak.

Sex at 40 – Good Lordy!

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord, my soul to keep.

For once I arise – my sweet soul awake
I pray a “ROMP-ful breakfast” to be my fate.

Perhaps it’s because I had a good 30-somethings sexual run? I used every year of that decade to make sure I fully understood all that I learned in my 20’s. I went over it and over it and… yeah, I think I understand the intro mechanics just well. I felt pretty well oiled and well versed on the subject.

So what about Sext at 40? What do you need to do and what do you need to know?Well, I don’t have all of the answers but I am willing to use myself, in research, to find out. For the good of us all — of course therefore, I thought I’d share this little treasure trove that I found on Prevention Magazine‘s site.  The information dealt seems to be geared to ‘helping the woman calibrate,’ but my darling men, if you want to ‘dazzle your bedmate with more understanding and connecting to her comfortability – then by all means, this is for you too:

1. He doesn’t care if you’ve shaved.
Really. It doesn’t even cross his mind.

sex-at-40-no-shave


2. Wide beats long every time.
If you care at all about penis size (and studies show that women are far more into how penises look than how they’re hung), you know that width matters more than length.

3. All the girls are doing it.
Masturbating, that is. In a survey by AARP, nearly half the women between the ages of 45 and 49 said they had taken matters into their own hands in the previous 6 months. And many women have used more than just their hands. In a 2009 survey by the University of Indiana, more than half the respondents had used a vibrator at least once, and nearly one in four had used one in the previous month. (The pros know it, too. Here are 18 sex toys sex therapists love—and use themselves.)\

There are 44-points in total, if you are interested – please do not miss.

Ride with Me

The other output_BcxBdGday my girlfriend came up on a sweet deal of used car. She called me, she heralded and I was excited – I was literally screaming on the phone with her like we had just won The Price is Right or like Wayne Brady just kissed us. Anywho, she then invited me on a road trip, a quick overnight/turn around trip — all expenses on her. You know my response was “Yes!” As ROAD TRIP is my middle name.

She then expounded out in detail about her new [used] Volkswagen. I asked if she were aware of their faulty manufacturing issues? She responded that she had heard about that, but thought that was an old issue and resolved. That’s when I said, “Uh-huh. I see. Oh, about that road trip offer…”

I’d love to partake, but not in a Volkswagen please!

Humping Good Fashion

In Communication, Griot, Networking, Self Improvement on January 13, 2016 at 7:30 am

a-lion-is-like-a-LyonThere are a number of fashionable women that showcase on my 55″ flat screen weekly that I love. There’s Olivia Pope, Annalise Keating, the women on RHOA: Phaedra, Porsha and Kenya to name a few, and of course we can’t forget that diva at the top of EMPIRE. My goodness — I’m surrounded and because I’m a workaholic I rely heavily on my DVR to hold the 411 until I can dedicate an entire day to going through 3-4 episodes at a time to peep garment styles. It’s a necessary.

So let’s review a pic or two where hair, make-up and wardrobe all came through. Ooo! Nothings excites me more than:

.
RHOA_phaedra

Besides being an attorney and a funeral home owner Phaedra Parks is “hair and makeup.” I don’t care what this woman is wearing her hair and makeup is always on fleek. Eyebrows, lips and her fabulous eyeshadow color blending is always stunning. Watching Phaedra give me face makes me miss Married to Medicine’s: Quad Lunceford.  I can’t wait for the new season to fire up.
.

RHOA Kenya

.The USA twirls every time Kenya Moore is doing her thing. Have you ever seen a woman so flawless in action? If you haven’t check her out on BRAVO: Real Housewives of Atlanta every Sunday at 8/7c. I’ll never forget how flawless she looked when she took that lick from Porsha during a reunion episode. She recovered like a true diva with a mouthful of damnation — that played out royally for Porsha at the start of the following season. Kenya is the real deal. I like everything about her. As for those who feel otherwise — they will just have to get over it. I have a feeling she’s on display for the long run.

.
RHOA_PorshaWhat can I say about this lady? She’s just so darn pretty. Porsha is a member of the RICKY SMILEY MORNING SHOW in addition to being a fashionable, eye candy cast member on the RHOA. From head to toe, this lady knows how to work it! Check out her INSTAGRAM view too: OooLaLa! Porsha lends fashionable insight every time the camera is pointed her way. THANKS Porsha! #ShineON.

 

scandal_oliviapope

.Life is a SCANDAL and you very well know it, but good God I love the way ABC’s Olivia Pope shows it! I can never miss an episode of ‘a day in the life of Olivia Pope.’ The writers, hair, make-up and wardrobe designers are spot on – episodically. And while different retail outlets claim to have an Olivia Pope fashion line,” unless I hear it from the lips of ABC’s Scandal Wardrobe Director that this is her choice, I’m not buying it. Recreating a similar line at an affordable price is a nice try, however, Olivia’s look cut’s no corners and is not cheap. Let the spending scandal begin. #CopTheLook

.
htgwm_annalisekeatingHow to get away with staying on top of the fashion chain is much tougher than learning HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER. Yeah? Sometimes it feels like it may be, but Annalise Keating seems to have no problem staying on top of the a.m. fashion conquer regardless of what mayhem the midnight hour throws her way. Fashion, make-up, stunning shoes and the right wig is crucial. Annalise knows how to “put it on” and get away with it. I like that.

I resort to Cookies wardrobe for any battle that may be uphill.

Out of the darkness

In Communication, Griot, Movies, Music, Networking, Self Improvement, TV Shows on September 7, 2015 at 5:58 am

Queen-Latifah…and into the light,
it appears QUEEN LATIFAH has been out of sight

but that’s how things look when you’re film producing –
you spend a lot of time behind the scenes leverage juicing.

So last week I wrote a little piece on that grunting Master P
just to log onto Facebook and find him posting about the Queen.

She has signed onto another reel deal and soon she’ll be in front of the cam
playing the role of young Master P’s mother in an upcoming film: The Ice Cream Man.

Remember that jam? I just linked it – here, last week.
Though today is about Queen Latifah and her journey of many peaks.

She’s always been a bit classy and not to be associated with the messy.
The Queen showed up and rocked the scene via reviews on the show BESSIE:

.
I hear she went all out. I hear the production went hard.
I heard the choice critics loved it & it’s been nominated for awards:

Bessie-the-movie

Well good Lord, that’s why we haven’t heard from the Queen – she’s about her larkness.
She’s so busy singing and acting it only appeared she was consumed by the darkness,

the fade-to-black scene that a lot of black actors vanish into.
I’m excited to report Queen Latifah did not resort and keeps a project or two.

If you’re like me and you miss the Queen Latifah show
take comfort in knowing she’s not in the dark – yo!

She’s all up in the light, on her mark and ready for the next scene,
I’m Qui
lighting up the dark with productive sparks and this one’s about the Queen.

All hail her bright and universal appeal

TBS-talent-house-of-payneSome just talk whilst others are ‘doing the damn thang,’
He’s all work and no chat —  he’s Mr. ALLEN PAYNE.

Tyler has claimed Allens talent and the two are actively engaged in a successful series flirt.
The HOUSE OF PAYNE lives in the TBS lane – it is classic Perry work.

Looking at Allen has never hurt.  My eyes are happy to see him when he works.
He’s been acting since the 80’s and dazzling the ladies; he’s quite the visual flirt.

His resume has been the -ish since 1989.
He has aged very little and my God he’s fine.

Did I already mention that? Pardon my stutter,
but anytime he’s on the scene, I’m glad to see this brother.

I love his network loyalty, but of diversity I am inclined to pull.
Besides I’d love to see Allen Payne on the set of Shonda Rhime’s SCANDAL.

I bet he’d be good. I remember his performance in New Jack City.
The people demand to see you more – Mr.Payne please take  pity.

Allen is anything but lost in the darkness, perhaps multiple roles are not his plight.
I’m Qui
just asking the good-looking he, if his future plans include more diverse script writes?

I’m obviously inquiring because I think his craft is out of sight
and, well… like I said, he’s so darn easy on the eyes.

Anywho, I figured if I spent the day on topic Out of the darkness,
it would be good to add this brother to the 411 list.

Odd Couple of shows – that I’m digging

In Communication, Griot, Networking, TV Shows on April 27, 2015 at 10:08 am

OddCoupleOfShows
I’ve been watching a lot of shows, but not necessarily at their scheduled times.
I’ve been getting-it-all-in via my DVR rewind.

I caught up on quite a bit this weekend — there was no serial room for dull;
I sat down and wore ‘the homebody crown’ starting with THE ORIGINALS.

I was about 3 episodes behind, though at the moment I’m all caught up
I was shocked to see the rivalry of 3 against Klaus up-in-the-cut.

Alas the Mickaelson click quietens the ruff blooded mutt.
They daggered o’ Klaus, then watched him quicken-up.

The scene was rough, especially considering
Klaus didn’t kill Aiden; he’s been “defense pandering.”

Meaning when others came running, gunning for the ruff,
He accepted the charge — throwing caution to wind and Dahlia.

He knew he had killed no one, and sensed an evil connect –
so to protect his family, Klaus stuck out his neck.

.
But he did not confess to anyone except Camille, his (bar) home girl
shortly before his kinfolk surrounded him and took him from this world.

It was starting to feel like SCANDAL‘s “Command” was on the scene.
Command is Olivia Pope’s father — Command can be ruthless and mean.

On the last episode the writers put ‘the fear of the unknown’ in our mouths
as we watched Olivia’s click go down, one-by-one as if being picked out.

A good dose of un-clout revealed that Olivia’s father owns this fight
but was unable to execute the fatal root for Jakes life.

In fact, while Olivia was loving on (what she thought was) a random bar muscle
she was indeed knocking boots with her daddy’s henchman — Russell.

Yes! The sexy black man, we’d known as Russell who was creeping in Olivia’s bed
At the conclusion of the last episode was lying on his back with a gun to his head.

Do what?!?
Child hush.

Liv was holding the gun – an automatic glock,
she was pointing it at his head, but was the hammer clocked?

olivia+russell+thegun

We don’t know.
The gun to Russell’s head – ended the show.

So off I go
to another show
That is reflective of today in its reeled time –
who could refuse not relating to the views that are played out on AMERICAN CRIME?

The writers of this show are into dropping bags full of dimes
As it pertains to”domestic insight” — kind of like my griot rhymes.

However this time after my DVR shined off 3 episodes from the digital books
I was forced to see that prejudice is a crime that is accepted and overlooked.

The reflection that we are getting from this show, story-after-story
is that everyone who is offended leans back on “the blame game” glory.

Matt was a 20-something year old vet
who served our country and retreated to sell meth.

He duly married the county’s crowned “Ms. Modesto,”
and in addition to selling drugs he rented out a [betrothed] hoe.

Ohhh and Uh-oh.

You didn’t know? Well I just told ya.
American Crime reflects the grime
in the lining that did mold ya!

Matt’s Mom is beside herself and content with laying the blame on any other
As long as we can prove the suspects ethnicity is from a minority mother.

Matt’s mother doesn’t care if the killer is latino or black – it really doesn’t matter
as long as it draws media headlines that injects her lop sided banter.

A real offended ranter, Matt’s mom doesn’t want to come to terms or admit
that the trouble her son was in, may have been behind his own ‘bit.’

I understand the plight of the mom, but wrong is wrong.
When you find out the crime is yours – don’t sing that victim song.

Entitlement runs rampart in this script and is subject to impale
anyone who sides too soon, in an effort avoid a personal fail.

The throws of creating this script must be hell – as it closely parallels real life.
I am thrown with every minute shown; American Crime reflects that trife.

Are you watching yourself? Are you watching the crib?
Are you drooling at the mouth? Do you need a bib?

I’ll get that for you — and off I go
to another show; this DVR is pulling me to and fro

exposing me to no shortage of conflicting banta’ —
with scarf in hand I am tuned-in to the REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA.

The broadcast season is over – still there’s enough left over confusion
that would preface the very reason this show needs an off-season reunion.

Part I. of this 3-part reunion started out on the stage
being hosted by Andy – he’s all of the “reel gossip” rage.

We flipped back and forth through past shows scratching up flakes
of controversy between the women during film and outtakes.

Porshe admitted to “sleeping with a married man” & the benefit of “the gift” reap
when she was out with Claudia and the girls in the Phillipines.

Kandy held up her own when Ne-Ne came at her with “I see you,”
Kandy replied, “We see each other” and that scene was through.

Cynthia looked pretty in part 1 and even though she didn’t say much,
I look forward to part 2 of the reunion and Cynthia yielding a little more love.

She’s beautiful, but not heavy on throwing shade.
Should as much be said about Kenya? God forbade.

I am a fan of Kenya Moore. You don’t have to personally like her.
But she’ll always have a view as long as there’s someone to film and mic her.

She’s way more than a pretty face, a voluptuous pair of girls and a bouyant butt,
Kenya is beautiful, creative, smart, proactive, professional and rough…

when need be,
i.e, when facing Porsha or NeNe.
Ooo wee.

I love ’em all, I really do.
If you get a minute next Sunday – drop on through.
The ladies will be much thicker in reunion – in part deux.

This weekend I worked my way though my DVR list on the double
and ended up laughing at that that duo in THE ODD COUPLE.

Have you been watching Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon?
Clever situational writing is what keeps me grinnin.’

Who knew I’d dig The Odd Couple – it has invoked a thirst
that I knew nothing about during the run of its successful first.

The first Odd Couple television series remains yesterdays beloved hit,
when Jack Krugman portrayed Oscar and Tony Randall birthed Felix.

At the shows conclude I was two years shy of six: broadcast 1970-1975.
The Odd Couple is new to me today. I pray it well on its new thrive.

My DVR is alive and I am diverse in culture in its wake.
I’m Qui
The caught-up she, ready to take on this creative day.
Starting with a )))HUG(( a kiss and a “heyyy!
Have a fantastic, show-stopping day.

There are a number of fashionable women that showcase on my 55″ flat screen weekly that I love. There’s Olivia Pope, Annalise Keating, the women on RHOA: Phaedra, Porsha and Kenya to name a few, and of course we can’t forget those platinum girls casted on REVENGE. My goodness — I’m surrounded and because I’m a workaholic I rely heavily on my DVR to hold the 411 until I can dedicate an entire day to going through 3-4 episodes at a time. It’s heaven. It’s chique too.

So let’s review a pic or two where hair, make-up and wardrobe all came through. Ooo! Nothings excites me more than:

RHOA_phaedra

Besides being an attorney and a funeral home owner Phaedra Parks is “hair and makeup.” I don’t care what this woman is wearing her hair and makeup is always on fleek. Eyebrows, lips and her fabulous eyeshadow color blending is always stunning. Watching Phaedra give me face makes me miss Married to Medicine’s: Quad Lunceford.  I can’t wait for the new season to fire up.

RHOA Kenya

.The USA twirls every time Kenya Moore is doing her thing. Have you ever seen a woman so flawless in action? If you haven’t check her out on BRAVO: Real Housewives of Atlanta every Sunday at 8/7c. I’ll never forget how flawless she looked when she took that lick from Porsha during a reunion episode. She recovered like a true diva with a mouthful of damnation — that played out royally for Porsha at the start of the following season. Kenya is the real deal. I like everything about her. As for those who feel otherwise — they will just have to get over it. I have a feeling she’s on display for the long run.

RHOA_PorshaWhat can I say about this lady? She’s just so darn pretty. Porsha is a member of the RICKY SMILEY MORNING SHOW in addition to being a fashionable, eye candy cast member on the RHOA. From head to toe, this lady knows how to work it! Check out her INSTAGRAM view too: OooLaLa! Porsha lends fashionable insight every time the camera is pointed her way. THANKS Porsha! #ShineON.

 

scandal_oliviapope

.Life is a SCANDAL and you very well know it, but good God I love the way ABC’s Olivia Pope shows it! I can never miss an episode of ‘a day in the life of Olivia Pope.’ The writers, hair, make-up and wardrobe designers are spot on – episodically. And while different retail outlets claim to have an Olivia Pope fashion line,” unless I hear it from the lips of ABC’s Scandal Wardrobe Director that this is her choice, I’m not buying it. Recreating a similar line at an affordable price is a nice try, however, Olivia’s look cut’s no corners and is not cheap. Let the spending scandal begin. #CopTheLook

htgwm_annalisekeatingHow to get away with staying on top of the fashion chain is much tougher than learning HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER. Yeah? Sometimes it feels like it may be, but Annalise Keating seems to have no problem staying on top of the a.m. fashion conquer regardless of what mayhem the midnight hour throws her way. Fashion, make-up, stunning shoes and the right wig is crucial. Annalise knows how to “put it on” and get away with it. I like that.

.
There’s no better way to ‘get back at someone’ than to show up to the event so sharp, that onlookers get a paper cut from just seeing you enter the room. Ouch! Paper cuts are never expected and that’s the way I feel about the diva representations on REVENGE.

revenge_victoriagrayson

.Victoria Grayson is the fashion matriarch on deck sets the precedence. She’s always seductive, nice and nasty as it pertains to her fashion and her scripted lines bear a jagged edge. Careful in coddling this flower, but definitely coddle her style. It’s a must darling.

 

EMILY VANCAMPEmily Thorn may beg to differ as she is a leader of all things, herself. I do like the way Emily takes a licking and keeps on ticking in Laboutin’s . She also retaliates lovely, putting forth, (no doubt) her best poker (MAC) face. No one delivers lip perfecting color like Emily. No one has nicety line delivery like her either. She’s not one you want to cross in script or on the red carpet. Hair, make-up and wardrobe members that compose this characters look should open the next happening shop on 5th Avenue. They’ll have no problem selling out. #CompetitiveFashion is the always the best quip.

Today is Wednesday and I’m Humping GOOD FASHION.
A guide to what’s right is all I’ve been asking.

I still cop the magazines in the checkout line,
however the RHOA girls make it all come alive.

I DVR a few shows and suddenly my fashion thrives.
Using fashion as revenge is enough to make a girl cry.

I love it. Clean shoes and a nice hat always compliments sweet,
I’m Qui
Visiting the MAC counter for the flawless face of me.

Clothes works wonders,
but the right face brings all the thunder.

NEWS PERUSE – Glued To The Tube

In Communication, Griot, Movies, Music, Self Improvement, TV Shows on February 20, 2015 at 9:37 am

Cute Guys glued to the tube

I know your television has been on – what have you been watching?
I keep the DVR full, I’m always show clocking.

I’m into #HTGAWM and la bella Analise. You may have heard of her?
She’s that chocolate chic, whose knowledge is thick on HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER.

how to get away with murder FLIRTABC is out of control, they’re demanding my attention without cessation.
I know I am not alone based on the viewer alert tones I receive from FB nation.

If you are watching this show, then you know that we’re down to the wire,
the season finale is soon to come, yet, so many irons are still in the fire.

The creation and writing fulfills my desire to get more from “my comfy-couch time”.
Shondra Rhimes is growing a “David E. Kelley vine” and yields a great deal of my sunshine.

I love it, still my DVR has many slots available – increasing my capacity for “handle,”
so dare I miss an episode of Olivia Pope and them folk on ABC’s SCANDAL?

scanal FLIRTI shall not. The writing is hot and I do dig it very much.
I’ve got a thing for Hulk ‘ – because he’s got that “down-for-Liv” love.

Ride or die. Hulk said he’s a rider now, and that he is no longer “the killer.”
Still, the way he chooses to incapacitate one – belongs in a psycho thriller.

He’s the real deal’a, yo – and I can respect that.
NEW 411: I’ve got eyes for Mary Jane’s new cat.

BEING MARY JANE can’t be easy,
but a ride on her latest boy toy ‘sho makes it look breezy.

 

You can B.E.T. me every Tuesday from 8-9, because I will be in the cut.
The writers of #BMJ have got-it-going-on in scribbling out “grown folks stuff.”

Being Mary Jane w Brandon

Unfortunately, Mary Jane and Brandon don’t talk much…

 

I tend to like it rough and they don’t sugar coat too much.
I love that they encompass a lot of insight: the good, the bad, the love…

I’d love to give Mara Brock a big ol’ )))HUG(((!! I appreciate her
for contributing to facilitating our cheesy sitcom past – into a blur.

empire FLIRTThen there’s that awesome hustle and flow of business and lyrical fire —
that exists within the hip hop frames of Lucious and Cookies EMPIRE!

The writing on this show calls out and really speaks to me;
birthed from the same hands as The Butler – it’s the handy work of Lee.

Lee Daniels is the creator of this show and he did not at all miss
when he ‘took it to the head’ and casted Henson and Howard in the mix.

The other actors in the cast roster, are largely faces I do not know,
and that’s part of the hook that keeps me glued to this action-packed show.

The music is pretty good too. The score is composed by sir Timbaland.
He produced Missy Elliott and the sill beloved Alliyah. Remember them?

Blackish-PosterThen there’s the creator of that show BLACK’ISH – he’s got his hands full pulling this duty.
He’s taken-on introducing blacks to the world, via Anthony Anderson and Tracie Ellis’ booty.

Kenya Barris has once again proven that when it comes to show producing – he can do it.
I learned about this show via Exec. Prod. Larry — from The Daily Show with Stewart.

Speaking of Jon Stewart — he’ll be ending his show’s broadcast this year.
The man who divvied us the 411 via laughter-to-tears.

It’s been real funny, indeed. May his exit cause no lumps in the throat;
let us move on and laugh well with those folk on FRESH OFF THE BOAT.

My brief research on the shows creator left me feeling diversely strong –
the creator crafted this from a life of his own: the creator’s name is Eddie Huang.

FOTBI’m a passenger watching #FOTB and I must say based on the noted behaviors,
I have duly been missing out on laughing with my Asian neighbors.

My direct neighbors are of Asian decent and from 3-years passed to this day,
We are cool, with no friction to invoke fool — everyday we just smile and wave.

Digging Eddie Huang’s mind, makes me want to interact with them more.
This is a direct cause and effect from televisions diversity score.

I love it – I love it! Therefore, I remain intently in tune,
I’m Qui 
Rending a channeled view in this NEWS PERUSE – happily Glued To The Tube.
