Serial Watcher

There are a number of synapses going off in my brain right now. There are many things to do, and details to comprehend on the HOW.

This happens all of the time. No matter what I do in real life, I summarize in rhyme.

Good afternoon beloved. I chose to sleep in. The clock moved up a notch, tho no alarm is my routine friend.

I rise when the body is ready, which is usually in the am-hours that look like night. I would go to bed at an earlier hour but I’m scripting screen excites.

Art imitates Life in many byte forms… afterwards, I retreat to sweet dream and angelic charms. How are you doing this morning? What is pending in this day for thee? Me, I’m off to hike a few mountains, but thinking about tv.

Have you been watching any good television lately – Have you found any series surprisers? One right off the cuff for me, is CBS’ EQUALIZER.  Are you watching? Queen Latifah in hand-to-hand combat is show-stopping.

I like Robyn McCall’s agility in her “action scenes.” I understand what the writers are doing, but depth-of-story is missing something.

Queen Latifah is a guru when it comes to series betting. The Equalizer’s writing, (is less than the 80’s episode exciting), some situations – fans are not “getting.”

As in, the show plays out like the series from 1980‘s did, but the Queen is neither a male nor white, and single with a kid.

Interesting change. I enjoy the familial aunt-inclusive scenes —  but having Robyn ride through the hood with suggestions to be good is “not a thing.”

I cringe every time she bikes up on dark danger. But then again, the Queen is a beast; of an action series she’s a wrangler.

There are a couple of other series I’ve been checking out as well. If you have a moment or two, drop in for a spell:

There is “BETTER THAN US.” It’s a Russian born series divvying A.I. love. You’ll love the auto mechanics of the protagonist chick. Give Better Than Us a looks’y – it broadcasts on Netflix.

Also on the same streamer is a series starring a dude of deep melanin kin — his charms are no alarm and he’s a thief among like-gentlemen. If you don’t know who I’m hinting at, consider dropping in on “LUPIN.” If you think life goes in a straight line, prepare for an entertaining bend. Oui-oui, Lupin:

Last but not least, have you seen PARADISE PD? It’s a reality-parallel cartoon on Netflix tv. Oh my, those writers are a beast. They cram a lot of societal views inside of this dark comedy.

Genre Cart-Dramedy, (cart stands for cartoon). Though this kind of animation may not air before noon.

You know the kind. Watch it alone, before “family viewing time.” Not suitable for small farm animals and children is what you might find.

Wether you walk towards either of these series’ or run – I’m thinking  you’ll agree they are a lot of fun.

What else is there to do on a Monday?

In A Zone

Imagine life as a multifaceted multi-lane highway with “yay-many” lanes going in each directional way, so very organized, smooth traffic with no delays. Imagine that and you will have arrived at me enjoying my creative space.

I am In A Zone; the kind that thrives when I’m alone.


R&D is conquered best when on hiatus. Travel is funky in our country and so I pray for us 

and zone-out onto a creative highway; a familiar route.

It’s Friday, again, and good morning to you. I’m up before dawn, done’ ditched the yawn to chronicle character truths.

The character seems to admire your natural charisma and personality fire. Situations are tight and character aspires. Consequences are set and hurdles are higher. I look at J. Blakeson’s work and I’m inspired.

Do you know J. Blakeson? His Netflix piece is hot – it stars Rosamund Pikes and titled “I CARE A LOT.”

It’s a Dark Comedy and it’s several layers thick. I definitely recommend it for viewing – I think you’ll like it:

Bored, you won’t be – this film nicks that thirst. I’d love for the same to be said when others view my work.


It’s good to admire, learn and incorporate specific seeds — into your work starting with serious R&D.


I’m nosey by nature so pre-production is a treat as well as interviews and meet & greets. Thank you to everyone who’s agreed to meet with me. There’s nothing like story and yours is key.


And so, this weekend will find me doing much of the same, I’m on a road trip and I’m in the creative lane.


What have you got planned for the next few?

I’m Qui

Always digging thee for digging me and coming through.


You’re good-company on my creative route; ‘tis what a good muse is all about.

Thank you. Meow. Pow! And ciao for now.

All Black People Know Each Other

No, we don’t, but I do like the fact that no matter where in the world we are, when we see another that looks like us, we speak and often times indulge in random conversation with no formal introduction, knowing full well, we may never see that person again. I guess it’s a social/cultural thing.

Personally, I speak to everyone I encounter in passing. I smile and wave at strangers. Some are caught off guard by the gesture and wave back, while wondering if they know me, some grow stoic and just stare (like a deer in headlights), and some mean-mug me in response. However, 9 out of 10 times when I speak to a black person in passing – without pause, they speak back in kind. I love that about my culture. I do. It’s so warming. I also love it when random folk of any race are cool enough to smile and wave back at me without reservation. It’s the coolest.

I have an awesome black male friend of 23-years who is married to a fantastic white woman for about 21 years. Their interracial union is beautiful and quite productive, though he once told me that early on in their relationship he and his wife had a slight falling out because they had gone to the grocery store and as they entered the doors, a white couple exited the store. They made eye contact with the white couple. My male friend acknowledged their presence with a nod and a smile, the couple saw my friends and continued to walk their way. Once inside of the store my friends see a black guy nearing the exit, my male friend acknowledged his presence with a head nod and a smile and the black guy responded with a head nod a smile and said, “What’s up?”  Then while they shopped, he encountered a couple of other social speaking black people and he even struck up a brief conversation with a brother about an NBA game that was going to broadcast later on that evening. Once they were done shopping and had returned to their car, his wife stared at him curiously as he began to start the car. He asked her what the look was for and she said,

Wife: How do you know all of those black people and why didn’t you introduce me?

Husband: What black people?

Wife: In the store.

Husband: I don’t know any of those people.

Wife: Then why were you talking to them? I didn’t see you talking to any random white guys.

He hadn’t noticed the fact, but after yielding brief thought, he realized that he nodded and smiled at everyone that encountered him making eye contact and that many responded in kind, but only the black people responded vocally. He kissed his loving wife on the forehead and welcomed her to his culture. This was year one in their marriage. Culture is real and curiosity is cute. But… 

All Black People DON’T Know Each Other – we’re just expressive in our social lovin’.  — I’m of slave descent like Oprah, sure – but we’re not really cousins.

 All cultures have uniquenesses as to what makes them hot. — Among rhythm and athleticism, Black folks talk a lot. 🙂

All Black People Know is that when they see each other in the streets — if one should speak kind to another – it’s common courtesy to return the speak.

Now that does not mean that All Black People do it.  — I love smiling and speaking – So to social boundaries? Ahhh – screw it!

I speak to everyone I see. — Especially those who act like they don’t see me. 

I wave at strangers I pass on the street — and known to hug a good soul at an introductory meet.

Life is short and hugs are sweet. — I smile and speak to most folk on the street.

Mean mugs don’t rest on my face. — You’ll find no frown line or ill will trace.


Yes, I’m an extrovert. I’ve heard and I am aware.

I’m Qui

Taking the time to speak to thee, because I humanly care.

Are you a random speaker?

 And would you ever dare?
