PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

Good Morning World. Are you home today?
Is COVID19 putting a dent in your slay?

I heard. I heard. I, too, am not going out for much.
I work from home a lot; utilizing the mono touch.

God bless the folks that flew into O’Hare airport;
packed in that facility like sardines of sort.

I’m so sorry you were there. I hope that you are well.
November is coming. Please bare out this spell.

Vote away the hell. Use your vote as your voice.
We can get better or die. Good life is a choice.

Good Morning World. Are you looking at us?Americas-shorter-short-bus
Is America sitting in the shorter short bus?

There’s a pandemic at play and we don’t want to acknowledge
that it has come to claim souls from nursing homes to college.

It has come to affect us all; every living man under the sun.
If COVID19 doesn’t claim the soul, it seeks to scar the lungs.

Beloved World: as a child of God, you will fall by none.
Talk to Him, again. Health favor. Get some.

It’s for you, too,
if prayer is a thing you can remember to do.

It’s morning and the stock market is flat, kid.
It’s a rich mans problem; el facade racket.

Pumping money into the markets, doesn’t make the virus go away.
Kinfolk we are on our own, if we are to survive this sway.

Life on pause.
I’m in here with y’all.

And I’m not sure how long this will last,
so I’ll make it my business to bring the laughs.

Today is a good time to engage in a movie streaming app
and sit around with your kids with a bowl of popcorn in your lap.

NETFLIX Monday
sounds like a necessary fun day.

Sounds like a day where we can reclaim familial glory
and maybe convey to the the kids a Biblical story.

There are so many stories that parallel this day that we are in.
The Bible is not a fictional book, but a chronicle of past kin.

Please respect the wisdom, therein.
Get with fam and renew your bond, again.

Good Morning World, I’ve got you on my mind,
I’m Qui

A Light Affair

The weekend was great: Friday felt V.I.P. special,
Saturday was kind and Sunday smacked the devil.

What more could you want? Please do say.
I’ve got a few funnies to share on this Monday.

Care you to comprehend? Lean in close.
I don’t want to print too loudly and pull anyone’s goat.
You know?

Below are a few
hardy-hars & yoo-hoo’s
that I’d like you to give a looksy to.
A little abdominal agitation is good for you.

What do you mean “Who’s going around laughing-it-up these days?”
As long as God gifts me with life I’m making jokes out of melee.
Let’s laugh at self a little. Eh?

February came and went quickly; love quickened the day but did it glow?
Many were proposed to and many said no, too; thus our first joke:
I-love-you-joke

Speaking of “proposal’s,” I had to compose one last night
for a multimedia client whose in the market for a website.

I was bar none when composing the user experience and shopping for interface.
I spent hours & hours with no sour; time flies when your work is your play.

Joke_Old-Age

Gamification is the way.
Remember when we found fun in everything, yesterday?

If you’re reading this piece, you have got to look back and laugh —
at how God has delivered you; you used to be bad.

I’m kidding. No you weren’t. Really. You were not.
Mucous is an endearing fluid – that’s why mom calls you “a snot.”
Because “bad,” — you were not.

I have enjoyed every birthday that has delivered me to:
being grown and doing what I want to do.

So,

Joke_Dirty-offer.jpgAfter all, I am of age and it’s Monday, too.
The kids are not looking;  it’s just me and you.

Lean in close I’ve been reading folks texts —
and this dude just admitted to crying after sex?Joke-Male-Sex-Tendencies.png

I didn’t make it up. I just shared.
I asked for your permission first, because I care.

I care so much that I would at least stick around until the sun rips the scene. And because I’m from the South, I’ll rise and cook everything.

Nothing wrong with it. I just like to admit it.

Speaking of sunrises, I’m trying to get out of this house before the suns rise but not before kicking it with you over smiles on life and tell you that “you stay on my mind and are always a muse for me when I’m on my grind.”

Having said as much I have to run. Do take care.
I’m Qui
Let’s make this day A Light Affair.

A Hand and A Stand

In Comedy, Communication, Griot, News, TV Shows on February 5, 2020 at 5:45 am

The title crossed my mind last night. A Hand and A Stand should not to be confused with “a handstand.” I was happy to tune in to the State of The Union address. It was interesting and reminded me of

kid-on-swing.gif

joke-time-sign

A new teacher tries to make use of her psychology courses. The first day of class, she starts by saying, “Everyone who thinks they’re stupid, please stand up.”

After a few seconds Little Johnny stands up. The teacher asks, “Do you think that you’re stupid, Johnny?” “No ma’am,” he replied. “But I hate to see you standing there all by yourself.”

There was quite a bit of standing at the #SOTU.
Republican should have worn house shoes —

the way that they were up-and-down in their seats so often.
If this were routine exercise, less butts would be softened.

Congress is full of spineless and mushy butts.
So, I know last night’s glute work drove them nuts.

Butt — it was fun to watch.
Every two lines, they would stand on-the-clock.

The American People are watching, as well as our global neighbors and kin.
I’m not the only one who was entertained by the constant and pointless standin.’

skating-elephantThe #SOTU was entertaining but nothing to leave you “in the know.”
Though it picked up significantly when it turned into a game show.

Remember all of the guests who were surprised that they had to act
like the Pres was surprising them after the dated fact?

Not one guest looked surprised – still it was good to know
that folks are compliant and came out to the show.

Though the state of our union, we still do not know.
I think that part of the speech hit the cutting room flo.’

Then again, truth be told, I know exactly how we’re doin,’.
If Congress reflected the people, there’d have been a lot of boo’in

in the esteemed gallery last night.
Civility is necessary; it was proper to oblige.

shrek-donkey-says-no.gifCongress displayed a pride; not quite model civilians.
At least the Democrats didn’t act-out like Joe Wilson.

Regardless of party – we are all family and we need to respect
each other/one another and slack-not on the “check.”

If your brother is wrong, it’s okay to hold his hand
and remind him of what’s right. No applaud – no stand.

The children are watching. So what does it mean, man?
Be a role model for the kids; tomorrow they’ll run the land

and not appreciate you, boo. Congress: bless your souls.
Many of you will be seeking re-election at the polls.

Mm-hm. Your way of business is getting old. I think it’s time to dip, man!

My Senses Told Me

In Comedy, Griot, News, Self Improvement on January 29, 2020 at 5:45 pm

I never wanted to believe that my Dad was stealing from his job as a road worker.

traffic-road-highway-signs.jpg

But when I got home, all the signs were there.

How are your senses: Touch, sight, hearing, smell, and taste?
Notice each body-part is on, around or has access to your face. 😛

‘Makes sense that everything’s within intimate reach if you want to sense it.
You can probably have a bite of it — right after you rinse it.

Assuming it’s fresh fruit.
The smell and taste is comparable to youth.

Fruit is only good in it’s youth,
though it shines best being digested by you.

Why eat fruit?
The ingredients are true.

There are all sorts of things that you can sense, smell, and taste,
but you may not want them in your face:
butt-cheek-joke.jpg

You get my drift…then again, a drift is what you want to miss indeed.
Use the nose for flowers, Mom’s cooking or Snoop’s weed.

Use your sense of touch (handsy-fill-up) on some fresh fruit and/or your mate.
Don’t have either on hand? Go grocery shopping and pick-up a date.

Single people love to hangout at the grocery store – it’s true.
Roll thru with a basket on aisle 8 and see what it do.

Your intuition is a sense, though it’s not near your face.
Your intuition will keep you on-point and generally safe.

Ladies: roll down the aisle exhibiting grace.
Men: be on the lookout; use the senses on your face.

When you see or smell an attraction coming
get near the subject and start to humming.

Okay, wait! That may not be the best way to score —
unless you’re into security and a show to the door.

butt-cheek-joke2.jpeg

Then again, I am not your intuition; I am not that sense.
I am your melanin sister with blonde hair who can be a little dense

when it comes to telling you how to pick up dates.
Your five senses will pull you through…be sure to pray.

I don’t want you out there being insensitive on any day.
If you piss someone off, have a joke on hand to say:

Okay, have one or two.
If the first doesn’t work – this one will do:

Word-Savvy

Is buttcheeks one word?

Or should I  s p r e a d  them?

Are you smiling now? Good. So I’ll make this quick:
Get in touch with your senses; smell, touch, and lick

every thing that you see, including that desired person near.
Get them alone in a room and make sure that the coast is clear.

With ears on alert the footsteps of others – you’ll be keen to hear –
then express your senses more, i.e., a consensual sear.
What do you say dear?

The evening is nigh and My Senses told me that you needed a change in vibe,
I’m Qui
Infecting your senses via the write. Thank you for being sensitive and stopping by.

We do a lot of things naturally, like expend and take-in copious amounts of energy.
If I didn’t break up the concentration of no-flux, what kind of friend would I be?

Reading is fundamental and is an activity that I enjoy best.
Good jokes appeal to me; I find them in the READERS DIGEST.

The world needs more smiles and less “do I still look happy” fakes.
If you reflect the latter of the two – please genuinely enjoy this LAUGH BREAK:

Scrabble

Good afternoon sweetheart, having it your way is key

….and it just so happens that I am she.
I am eager and ready for an afternoon release.

“Wooo-sah,” beloved. What’s happened in the day thus far?
You are the protagonist in this tale; you are the star.

Shall we meet at the bar? I’m having hot water and lemon.
What will you be sipping; live that quote by Russel Simmons,

and DO YOU, boo.
Me, I’ll have not one drink but a few.

After the lemon juice, I’ll likely have a shot followed by a Michelob Ultra Light.
Yeah, I’m big on socializing, but to be “saucy” is not my plight.

I can hold my liquor but can you endure the strength
that it takes to relax; like someone else has your rent?

Can you? Relax at this very moment by taking a deep breath.
And thank God for the moment; it’s life – not death

and nothing that you are doing will be the detriment of you.
Stay true to your values, your view, and DO YOU.

There’s that suggestion again. I’m like a leisure-pushing goon,

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,

For if I retreat from my thoughts, I may resort to drinking.

Who am I fooling? I am already familiar with the practice.
At the end of the day, my vodka toast to tomorrow is “I got this.”

Oh yes, Happy Friday! I insist on being such today.
I’ve got my scripts and a camera on my hip – I am ready to play

because I’ve been thinking… and a bit too much.
I’ve been busy with intellectualism and less with love.

For that, I apologize.

HBO is on fire with A BLACK LADY SKETCH SHOW.

We’re only 3 episodes in and I relate a hundred percent.
Issa Rae and Robin Thede create dough for the rent.

Binge-watching new episodes is how yesterday was spent.
Episode 4 airs on Wednesday; I’ll be watching with friends.

Get in where you fit in; be a social vulture.
If you have no black gf’s drop in on the culture.

It’s raw, it’s real and I like it very much.
I appreciate the cast for showcasing ‘the smooth & the rough:’

The topics aren’t easy, yet they are comedy sketched.
They yield to thought and laughter; covertness – nixed. 😛

HBO’s new feminine view,
is one that you should cozy up to.

Black Lady’s are fun and confrontational; they wear hair bonnets and are rarely known to flake-up.
Some are also synonymous with “beat faces;” a flawless necessary – is her MAC and NARS make-up:

Oui Oui Oui – SHORTS TV

In Comedy, Communication, Griot, Movies, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on June 7, 2019 at 12:13 am

I love SHORTS…

For 14 hours a day and at least 5 days a week, I am watching short films. I keep the television in my office on DirecTV’s SHORTSTV channel. It’s a way for me to feel surrounded by my peers, be entertained, educated, and inspired. It’s also a great way to stay motivated on my own scriptwriting journey. I can’t watch a movie without counting shot types and how they are composed to convey the story. It’s a science, for sure.

Inference. My creative mind immediately goes to what happened before the film started and what could possibly happen after it has ended. I dabble in inference daily. It’s the stuff new creations are made of; it’s also the stuff that encourages me to stay on the path that I am pursuing. I’ve successfully completed several collegiate projects where I had to create characters and scripts for popular films and narrative series. I’ll admit that it can be tough to watch a film that you did not write, comprehend the characters, fall in love with the storyline and substories and create breath to strengthen and sustain its life — but I’m into it. Call me a script empath.

filmstrip-divider

It’s been a very long minute
since you and I have talked short films; all up in it.

So let’s begin it:


BITTER is an 11-minute film about a middle-aged man who finds himself shocked by his 21-year old daughters taste in men.
A well-seasoned rooster seems to be pecking his offspring-hen.

This is a comedy with a real gut feeling spin.
I think you’ll enjoy its ironic end.

FATIMA is a 29-minute short film
about the reality of an immigrant living in the dim.

The dim would be an “illegal status;” always over-the-shoulder looking.
For the good that Fatima was doing on her job, it resulted in police booking.

Though all could have cleared; resolved by proof of videotape
yielding one person with positional power to free or shoot to hell her fate.

That’s about all that I’m going to say about that. You should consider giving it a look.
Although revealing it could be quite healing. The ending was unexpected; I was shook.
.

IMPERVIA is a work of science fiction that breaths life into an impoverished family of droids. Yes – I said droids, as in androids; think ALIEN with Sigourney Weaver, remember the android on board? Formed like so, an impoverished family of droids is sought out by the governing authority to make some pretty conclusive decisions about the family’s habitation. My good friend and novelist, Marc Abbott stars as the protagonist and head of the droid family. His character is responsible for charting a vision that will yield them a taste of freedom; a way to re-enter society functionally under a system that currently deems them not worthy:

Last but not least – in fact, this one is quite the short thrill,
Christopher T. Wood reigns in this film titled: TIME TO KILL.

Not to be confused with Samuel L Jackson’s piece, A TIME TO KILL.
This short film is comical before getting comparably real:

filmstrip-divider

Unfortunately, BITTER and TIME TO KILL are the only two
that I could find complete short film views for you.

As for FATIMA and IMPERVIA, if you want to catch them completely,
the best suggestion I have for you is to tune into SHORTS TV.

Me? I’m amped up today because it’s Friday and I’ve got script composition on my mind,
I’m Qui
and between you and me, I’m glad to know VCR’s did not take with them the power to REWIND.

Me, you and ShortsTV — we’re going to be just fine.
