An End and a Begin

In Comedy, Communication, Music, Networking, News, Self Improvement, Video on May 19, 2017 at 4:03 am

weekend-party.jpgYesterday came and yesterday went
and all the while my time was spent

running the streets going to and fro
to finalize the affairs of a man named Joe.

Joe is MY DAD, some folks called him Redd,
it’s because he had freckles and flaming hair on his head.

Had he lived to see June 27th, he would have been 70.
Today we’ll memorialize a man that meant the world to me…

Much happier will be I after this huge moment of closure indeed.
After the veteran send off, we’ll congregate among ourselves and delve in the feed.

Comfort food.

We’ll laugh and talk, give dap and hugs.
We’ll likely run through many familial stories of love.

And then it’s on to healing and living well. I’m just a few years past 40.
Life is at hand, enjoy the lay of the land; and always remember to party.

Feeling stuccato? Drop some E40:

After the party, ol’ Saturday morning will roll in sweet
and I’ll brave a smile before the floor shall meet my feet

Because I’m alive, I have the activity of my limbs and all is well.
God bless the family of the late Roger Ailes.

The FOX NEWS giant was doing fine just in the Summer of last year
when a forced resignation is all that the Murdock sons would hear.

Not to rehash old news but he was let go,
post allegations of sexual harassment when female employees said ‘NO.’

My, oh, satellite news has been popping beyond Pennsylvania Av
— none of which is okay, or poised to make us laugh.

So on a lighter note
for you, I have a joke:

A taxi passenger tapped the driver on the shoulder to ask him a question.

The driver screamed, lost control of the car, nearly hit a bus, went up on the footpath, and stopped centimeters from a shop window.

For a second everything went quiet in the cab, then the driver said, “Look malex-baldwin-pillow-cover-laugh.gifate, don’t ever do that again. You scared the daylights out of me!”

The passenger apologized and said, “I didn’t realize that a little tap would scare you so much.”

The driver replied, “Sorry, it’s not really your fault. Today is my first day as a cab driver – I’ve been driving a funeral van for the last 25 years”.

Anytime is a good time to start something new & productive in life,
I’m Qui
The day is yours, take the opportunity to soar and smile while you’re covering the miles.

Hindsight will prove it all worthwhile.

Let’s Talk

In Comedy, Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Science on April 23, 2017 at 3:50 pm

talk.gifThe weekend has been nigh and the hours have been great
for the most part, I’ve maintained a smile on my face.

Life is a race but I don’t think it’s about being swift,
more than about what you do, what you’re into and who you do it with.

You know?
Today Let’s Talk and exchange the blunt info.

Like, what’s going on in your life? Are you making positive strides?
Is your health, diet and fitness, shaking out to be alright?

Do you have a plight that you would love to voice?
Never settle for anything – you deserve a choice.

Especially within intelligent legislation as it pertains to health care… just an off the cuff mention.
I’m not down with the “repeal and replace,” as much as I’d like to talk about a SINGLE PAYER system.

Our health is in need of care and is nothing at which to squawk,
So yeah, today I’m feeling intimate, give me a minute and Let’s Talk.

Today I was up early, but much too early to rise,
I waited for the sun to break through the clear AZ skies.

Once it broke, I pulled it together and hit the road
a day of leisure will be my unfold.

I have writes to create and film editing — what a fun day.
The remainder of my desks chambers will have to wait until Monday.

Right now, I’m more interested in you, the weather and the GOOD that you’re farming.
I also wanted to know what are your thoughts on Global Warming?

I want to make sure that you’re still focused on tomorrow and constructively making lays.
I want to make sure you secure your future — stack chips for tomorrow (plan not to borrow) today.

These are notes that I have for myself on sticky notes and always on mind.
Let’s Talk, compare notes, look at our interests and plan our votes —
I’m curious to learn your finds.

When I decided to chat it up today I was duly thinking of Joan Rivers’ historical indention,
She used to do a CAN WE TALK routine that surely helped me to title THIS rendition.

can-we-talk-joan-rivers.jpg

decorative-line-divider1

Let’s Talk about being bold, being fierce, being raw…
Let’s Talk about congress, bills and laws.

What do WE really want, y’all?
Our country is looking funky to the rest of the world, y’all.

We could talk about how we got here and how we can reverse what we’ve put into action.
I think it’s time we take these discussions seriously. Child, serious talk is in fashion.

Clothe yourself with knowledge and learn what the heck is going on.
The PROTESTS in the streets are thoughtfully planned to go long.

Wasington-Post-Earth-Day-2010-Mall-Shot-1024x579.jpg

Washington Post – Earth Day 2017

Let’s Talk about your interests and where you stand on the EPA.
Let’s Talk about how bills have been signed to roll EARTH HELP protections away.

A few days ago was EARTH DAY and so many held signs, shoulder to shoulder in the streets
Across the world, there was man, woman, boy and girl, bearing weather – be it cold or heat

To make a point:
420 weekend was less about smoking a joint

and more about coming together across the worlds lands and seas
to say Earth deserves to be loved. A demand shown by WE.

Let’s Talk about what we mean more often, we deserve to be heard,
I’m Qui
Open to hearing your point of view. Communication rules the nation. WORD.

My GOTO BUDDY whenever I felt ‘laugh thirsty”
Has crossed over today: RIP Charlie Murphy.

I’m truly sad for the family, myself and the population masses
Who won’t have another Charlie joke to lift us up off of our mundane asses.

The humorous mic: he passes it to those that will come behind him
Who’ll posses the light to laugh at life and flip a smile at obvious grim.

Gosh I’m gonna miss him. For Charlie Murphy

Laugh Lines

In Comedy, Communication, Networking, News, Qui Audio Byte on March 31, 2017 at 2:52 pm

Life can be serious and often, not so kind,
so when I can, I gracefully yield to making new Laugh Lines:

Two elderly women were out for a Sunday drive in a large car and both could barely see over the dashboard. As they were cruising along, they came to an intersection. The stoplight was red but they just went on through. The woman in the passenger seat thought to herself “I must be losing it, I could have sworn we just went through a red light”. After a few more minutes they came to another intersection and the light was red again, and again they went right through. This time the woman in the passenger seat was almost sure that the light had been red but was really concerned that she was losing it. She was getting nervous and decided to pay very close attention to the road and the next intersection to see what was going on. At the next intersection, sure enough, the light was definitely red and they went right through, and she turned to the other woman and said, “Mildred! Did you know we just ran through three red lights in a row? You could have killed us!” Mildred turned to her and said “Oh, am I driving?”

Flying like Harrison Ford
harrison-fordAn airplane pilot had had a particularly difficult flight and a rough landing. The airline had a policy which required the first officer to stand at the door while the passengers exited, smile and give them a “Thanks for riding Royal Airlines.” But, in light of his bad landing, the pilot had a hard time looking the passengers in the eye, thinking that someone would have a smart comment. Finally, everyone had gotten off except for this little old lady walking with a cane. She said, “Sonny, mind if I ask you a question?” “Why no, Ma’am,” replied the pilot,” “what is it?” The little old lady said, “Did we land or were we shot down?” 🙂

Never mind satellite news today – tomorrow it will ramp up more.
For now, dowse out “suspicion” with this next J/K score:

no-firesA lady was complaining to her husband about remodeling her kitchen. “You have been telling me you were going to get me new cabinets for ten years!” said the wife. “They are a luxury and the ones we have are fine.” the husband replied. The next day the wife goes to visit her mother for two weeks. When she returns she is overjoyed to see a brand new kitchen waiting for her. She was so thrilled that every night when the husband got home she would have his favorite meal on the table and after dinner she would rub his feet as he read the paper in the recliner. A couple of weeks later a neighbor came by for a visit. After admiring the new cabinets she says, “All of us were so glad that the fire your husband had while you were gone was confined to the Kitchen.”

The last joke has so many “issues with it,” that I don’t know where to begin…crazy-smileyface
Let’s just say I’m glad the husband scored and no other square footage was singed.

Aw. It’s okay to laugh every now and again… actually, as much as you can, Boo.

Betting on #Sweets

In Comedy, Politics on November 8, 2016 at 10:29 am

Mid morning I received this tasty little treat in my inbox. I’m not much of a Krispy Kreme fan, but I do enjoy a fresh baked pastry every now and again, much like the candidates who have been diligent in stopping by for photo op’s at bakeries in various toss-up states. So yeah, this bit of #sweet was in my inbox:

sweet-bakery

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump walk into a bakery shop.

As soon as they enter the bakery, Donald steals three pastries and puts them in his pocket.

He says to Hillary, “See how clever I am? The owner didn’t see anything and I don’t even need to lie. I will definitely win the election.”

Hillary says to Donald, “That’s the typical dishonesty you have displayed throughout your entire life, trickery and deceit. I am going to show cinnamon-rollyou an honest way to get the same result.” She goes to the owner of the bakery and says, “Give me a pastry and I will show you a magic trick.” Intrigued, the owner accepts and gives her a pastry. Hillary swallows it and asks for another one. The owner gives her another one. Then Hillary asks for a third pastry and eats that, too.

The owner is starting to wonder where the magic trick is and asks, “What did you do with the pastries?”

Hillary replies, “Look in Donald’s pocket”… 😀

I suppose it’s a cool way to not send a con artist to jail but simply reveal that his actions were all a part of a joke.

I researched the previous funny and found several links that had the two candidates names switched. 🙂 Either way, it’s funny. Go on laugh and then give thought to not only paying for your next fresh pastry but also for the  order of the next person in line (or the one ahead of you). I do it all of the time. I won’t lie, I’m selfish in my doing — I love to see people smile. I don’t care about your political status, but I do love to see you smile.

Let’s SMILE and LAUGH MORE!

Measures of a MONDAY

In Comedy, Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Sports on November 7, 2016 at 8:46 am

gothic-calligraphy-letter-c

I have a few C’s to talk about today:

CUBS
COWBOYS
CHAPPELLE

2 of the C’s are winners and one not so much.
Two took home Neilson Ratings and one’s getting no love.

What the, What-What?
Let’s start off with THE LOVE:
cubs-winCONGRATULATIONS to The CUBS!I’m so happy for you!
Your fans across the land are reveling in your due. ;

The last time folks felt this way about ya, it was 1908.
“The curse” provided the thirst that you used to The World Series take.

You did THAT. You took THE WORLD SERIES bat for bat!
Honestly – the Indian fans probably aren’t even that mad.

A ‘honey years’ is a hundred years and you have pulled through well.
The curse was just extended rehearse; CONGRATS! You guys looked swell!

divider1

qui-82witten-nov-2016I felt the good vibes from CUBS LOVE all the way in the A-Z.
Not to mention their old training facility is just up the street from me.

Still there’s more love for another C of which I am fanatically happy to voice,
there’s a 7-1 record that’s duly being upheld by the COWBOYS.
I enjoyed yesterdays win, I grinned and enjoyed the good vibes.
Good energy is key for you and me – it’s the sweetener of #Life.

Go COWBOYS!! It’s good to be UP since we certainly know what it feels like to be down.
Yesterday was rad, my jersey made me the target of jabs – still our WIN didn’t yield me to clown.

divider1

Clowning is rarely necessary so you tell me ‘what the hell…?
I heard Trump was recently being pumped up by Dave CHAPPELLE?

My #HalfBaked homie is going rogue on me? Please say it ain’t so?
Morning news report the ranting sort was a kind of  “fart in the face” –  NO.

Okay, I’m padave-chappelle-blast-clinton-gimmickraphrasing – yo, but still.
Click the link and read the stink – I guess he’s expressing his ‘real?’’

He’s mad at Hill because he thinks she leaked the tape
that boasted about Trump grabbing pussy, by consent – NOT rape.

What?!? Dave are you, too, a pussy grabbing star?
Your debate makes me think you can relate – and for you SNITCHING is going too far.

For that– you get no “hardy-har-har‼️🙃

However Dave conjured up the Clinton jeer – God bless him and wow!
I guess it is what it is, perhaps he’s focused on his biz –
and he surely isn’t smoking weed now.

Relating to Trump’ is not a symptom of smoking weed.😀
I’m Qui
Up to Measure this Monday by the rule of a few C’s.
2 to 1, the weight is on #TheGood and that works well for me.

Not quite Kyphosis — at all

In Comedy, Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on September 7, 2016 at 6:33 am
hump-on-the-back

“Hump” on the backs of 4 and an exclamation mark.

Kyphosis. What it is? Kyphosis is the medical definition of a hump back. Kyphosis is evidence of an abnormal curvature in the upper back. It is grammatically and socially offensive to call the back condition a hump.

So what’s abnormal about the curve of the mid-week point that it is deemed “Hump Day?” I went on the hunt for clarity on this “hump” and found:

“Starting around 1965, Wednesday began being referred to as “hump day.” Smack dab in the middle of the traditional work week,
arriving at Wednesday symbolizes that we’ve made it over the hump and the weekend is in sight.
Mar 19, 2014″

http://blog.dictionary.com/wednesday/

cooltext203327515126872

Words, Words, Words. I can’t explain them all
and that “Over The Hill” marker is not your youthful fall.’

I’ve already had my 40th and I think that history has been lying.
Getting old takes effort baby, and your girl Qui ain’t trying. lol! 😀

Anywho it’s Wednesday at large between me and you
and I’ve been laughing a belly’s hoo

over these RICKEY SMILEY For Real re-runs.
TV One has been marathon’ing season 1.

I DVR’d it as I had only seen season 2.
Rickey divvies the laughs among the truths.

This is a loosely scripted reality show, like ol’ Larry David’s.
It’s an interesting way to broadcast a say — I’m just glad they’ve made this.

The show is funny, it’s enlightening and it relates to how I’m living.
Familial relating requires some debating and Rickey’s style is always giving.

I enjoy an intellectual laugh – the kind that makes you think and not just act.
I enjoy Ms. Juicy, Gary Da Tea, Da Brat and HeadCrack!

These are my people indeed.
Spilling laughter there after, beyond the radio feed.

DISH’ing celebrity dirt is certainly nothing new
Rickey Smileys work crew are into that too! Ooo!

It’s packed with good times and its moral points are often a slam dunk.
Though I must admit I crack up when they talk about “Monkey Stomp.”

rickey-smiley-monkey-stomping

Though I have a feeling it has to do with a dimensional “hump” –
I laugh at grown humor. I dig it very much.

Rickey usually broadcasts on Tuesday nights before “the hump” marks the spot.
Again, I’m fond of “the hump,” and my humps are supported by Sir. Mix Alot!

Fergie backs me up, she too, is ‘a lady of humps,’ dare I say.
I don’t know yo’, but to me, humps yield a fondness to Wednesdays.

Nothing wrong with taking a bad label and turning it around.snl-fist-bump-pound
If you’re into the mastering “the hump” –  give me a pound.

I think that you’re into it. I think that you like it.
If there were no humps in life – the bullet, you might bite it

in fear that you weren’t needed;  invisible.
Thank God for life — you’re needed alright.  
To think that you’re not, is just turkey-bull. 😀

And there’s nothing wrong with it: embracing the hump.
Though you don’t want to hoard a rash of bumps.

Ever!
Having a doctor treat that is both wise and clever.  🙂

What’s on my desk today is a total mixed bag,
A hump here, a valley there — no room in this day for a d r a g.

I’m glad too because I prefer to stay productively busy!
I’m Qui
If you see me in between humps, hug me and kiss me…

I’m always quick to hump onto #Reciprocation.
Let’s DO IT.
XoXo.

Animated Plated – Back Dated

In Book, Comedy, Communication, Networking, News on September 2, 2016 at 1:00 am

supermans-gf-lois-laneJust the other day I shared with you a page from a few comic pages and I mentioned one that might need revisiting, since I never saw its original print and in fact, I had just met this vintaged gem-of-a-reprint shortly before I posted the scene excerpt for you last week.

The comic print was a SUPERMAN’s GIRL FRIEND comic and it was dated only by the month of November. The price was right at just .15 a copy. Yeah! Anywho, I thought I’d re-post the pages of the comic that I found online via Ira Madison III’s BUZZ FEED column. If you like color commentation on the side, you’ll love his play-by-play of things.

Without further adieu I present to you:

lois-lane-goes-blk1

Click on the page to enlarge it

lois-lane-goes-blk2 lois-lane-goes-blk3 lois-lane-goes-blk4 lois-lane-goes-blk5

lois-lane-goes-blk6 lois-lane-goes-blk7 lois-lane-goes-blk8 lois-lane-goes-blk9

lois-lane-goes-blk10 lois-lane-goes-blk11

Tell me what you think. Stereotype much? 🙂
I’m hoping this was satire and not a pitch to ‘get some love.’

Lois Lane went Black to get the experience in the round
hoping that it would yield her a Pulitzer Prize crown.

I ain’t mad at her, but where’s that damn machine
that transferred her hair from bone straight to curled with afro sheen?

Ha! There’s the money maker, right there!
It could save me mad time in transforming my hair. 😀

But then there’s that little issue of ‘the rat‘ in that Black ladies home.
I cannot relate to the likes in my own clean and pest free home.

I call that “a dig,” a stereotype feed.
I was surprised there wasn’t a scene with smoking weed.

Even still, I am not mad
but wondered why the last scene showed the black man ‘glad?

Why was bruh’ man losing blood anyway?
I’d be willing to bet my reprint may be missing a page.

Or so, I hope.
I’m just trying to get the full scope.

What did you think? Have you seen the film BLACK LIKE ME?
Now there’s a white-to-black tale that you’ve gotta see.

Then there’s that old flick THE WATERMELON MAN,
where life dealt a random white guy the life of a black man.

Lois Lane was hardly alone in that zone of “curious Black stance.”
I’m Qui
Remember, I’m the kid that thought I was white – from the palms of my hand.

I was born into Blackness – Lois and the others put on an act.
Imitation is a form of compliment. I will take it and leave it at that. 😉
