WHAT MEN WANT

In Comedy, Communication, Griot, Movies, Networking, News, Video on February 15, 2019 at 12:22 pm


.

Sometimes I sit and wonder to myself
how men think and operate within themselves.

I admit on the subject that I don’t commit to thinking too long,
and after seeing Taraji’s new film I need an Erykah Badu song

and a bag of that magical herbal tea
that she pushed on her patrons and Taraji P.

Erykah’s character also sold weed
in the back of a salon that installed weaves.

This film was easy going and fun to see.
In addition to my patronage, I brought an additional three

and we all enjoyed the theater haunt
that entertained us for 2-hours on WHAT MEN WANT.

So what do they want? You may ask.
Child, you’ll have to see the film to truly bask

in why women should not be privy to men’s passing thoughts.
None were too lewd; I’ve heard many through a faux cough

in my own life.
Though yesterday was about Tina Gordon‘s write

and co-written with Peter Hyuck and Alex Gregory too.
Taraji P. and 8 others executed the films produce.

Taraji was like Paula Patton in the way that she walked the project through.
No shade to Proud Mary, but the WHAT MEN WANT film had more juice.

Okay – the last say may contain a wee bit of shade for Proud Mary. 
It’s just that the project was strong but its final cut was miscarried.

WHAT MEN WANT
delivered on many fronts:

The storyline was good and the situations were fresh.
Did the composition and cast yield a comedic gas? Yes!

I laughed out loud often as did my plus-3 party of friends.
We laughed and nudged in the dark from beginning to end.

aldis-hodge_b-e-t.jpgEspecially at what some of the men were thinking – I’ll divvy no spoilers here.
But I will say that Taraji’s co-star Aldis Hodge is a talent our audience held dear.

I heard a few gasps when he came onto the screen.
I remember Aldis as Noah from the UNDERGROUND scene.

My, my, my, it was good to see him cast in a single father’s role
and the chemistry between him and Taraji P was relative gold.

Yes. I really liked it. erykah-badu_what-men-want.JPG
Again big ups to SISTER, the weed selling psychic.

Big ups to Tracy Morgan  who played the dad that held it down
when it was time for his son to be NBA draft-bound.
He was the no-nonsense Dad who’s prone to clown.

I saw a little bit of a Levar Ball ingredient as his storyline did unfold.
Tracy’s character had merchandise to promote his son, including a trademarked logo.

Tracy held his weight and added cohesiveness to the script.
Every element of this film was well placed – none shot from the hip.

I’m sure I laughed through a few quips; this film is a winner and at the conclusion, I felt refreshed.
I’m Qui
and it was good to see Taraji P. Henson continue to shine and look her best.

I say as much because – we all know her as Cookie from Empire.
Empire is no comedy, therefore Taraji’s talent is just fire.

Black History is Our Legacy

February is one of my favorite months
because it represents love so very much.

While it’s a giving month it’s not too long.
What it lacks on long it makes up for in strong.

Like black coffee, this month and I are strong.
I like to make my points quick and not take too long.

Expresso?
I suppose so.

I like life strong.
In such a short month my mentions go long:

Don’t sleep on MASTER P and his NO LIMIT legacy.
Since 1989 he’s been on shine for the world to see.
His dimensions have depth,
Peep his journey; peep his steps:

Percy is always a favorite subject of mine.
I like my men like my coffee; fresh in grind.

I am mindful that there would be no Master P if first he were not birthed a baby,
so I have to yield Black History Props to the all-encompassing Black lady.

Good morning, good morning:

Key-blk-women

Good morning to you.
Qui is indeed Black History, too.

Big props to your mom, your auntie, that Black woman at your job.
It’s okay if you LOVE ON US all-at-once; we can handle the mob.

I am a BLACK WOMAN and I love every stitch of my fabric.
I love Adam’s seed who confesses that he’s a femme addict.

Come with it – WE give it.
LOVE.

beating-heart

Education is a great foundation on which to stand,
please tell me that you still kick it with Dr. Umar, man?

An educated community has always been his goal and plan:

As far as my personal diet goes – I’m trying again. 😛

There’s an interest to pay homage to Black folks who are willing to evolve.
A fixed mind suits little, let an open mind be our collective find and resolve.

The task is not small and I see honing in progress.
To what the world is trying to hurl… I retreat and digress.

To remove thyself from the rigmarole – is always best.
Remain positively focused and you’ll pass this test.

The Harlem Renaissance

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement on February 12, 2019 at 6:41 am

Harlem Renaissance Players

“…Our problem is to conceive, develop, establish an art era. Not white art painting black…let’s bare our arms and plunge them deep through laughter, through pain, through sorrow, through hope, through disappointment, into the very depths of the souls of our people and drag forth material crude, rough, neglected. Then let’s sing it, dance it, write it, paint it. Let’s do the impossible. Let’s create something transcendentally material, mystically objective. Earthy. Spiritually earthy. Dynamic.”Aaron Douglas

The Harlem Renaissance was originally called the New Negro Movement – a literary and intellectual era that birthed a new black cultural identity in the 1920s and 1930s.

Alain-Locke-Harlem-Renaissance.jpg

Alain Locke

Critic and teacher Alain Locke (a meticulous Virgo) described it as a “spiritual coming of age” in which the black community was able to seize upon its “first chances for group expression and self-determination.” Racism was rampant and economic opportunities were scarce therefore creative expression was one of the few avenues available to African Americans. The Renaissance was primarily literary while the birth of jazz is generally considered a separate movement—the Harlem Renaissance, according to Locke, transformed “social disillusionment to race pride.”

W. E. B. Du Bois (the encouraging Leo) was a Black historian, sociologist, and Harvard scholar. He was at the forefront of the civil rights movement at this time. In collaboration with a group of prominent African-American political activists and white civil rights workers in 1905, Du Bois met in New York to discuss the challenges facing the black community. Four years later the group founded the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), to promote civil rights and fight African-American disenfranchisement.

Charles-S-Johnson_Harlem-Renaissance

Charles S. Johnson

Black-owned magazines and newspapers flourished, freeing African Americans from the constricting influences of mainstream white society. Charles S. Johnson (a literary Leo – like myself) owned Opportunity magazine which became the leading voice of black culture, and the leading publisher of W.E.B. DuBois’s journal, The Crisis.

Jessie-Redman-Fauset_Harlem-RenaissanceWith Jessie Redmon Fauset (a steady Taurus) as its literary editor, she launched the literary careers of such writers as Arna Bontemps (the Libra perfectionist) , Langston Hughes (the hospitable Aquarius), and Countee Cullen (the “me first” Aries).

Jamaican-born Marcus Garvey began his (Leo courageous) promotion of the “Back to Africa movement.” Garvey founded the Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League (UNIA-ACL), which advocated the reuniting of all people of African ancestry into one community with one absolute government. The movement not only encouraged African-Americans to come together but to also feel pride in their heritage and race. Marcus was known to hold ‘unity’ meetings in Harlem from time to time – including at the current residence of Fab5Freddy ( the analytical Virgo). It’s good to know that the future of our history remains positively in progress.

Claude-McKay_Harlem-Renaissance.jpg

Claude McKay

A (Virgoan) poet/novelist Claude McKay is published in the magazine Survey Graphics as a literary reflection of the movement in Harlem, along with Jean Toomer (the ambitious [ethnic mixed] writer and philosopher Capricorn) and the (charismatic Gemini) painting artist Aaron Douglas. Survey Graphics was edited by black philosopher Alain Locke, the magazine featured a plethora of works by prominent black writers of the time period.

James Weldon Johnson was a (Gemini) poet, editor, and civil rights leader, who wrote about Harlem during the 1920s in his autobiography, Along This Way (1933). He described it as the era “when Harlem was made known as the scene of laughter, singing, dancing, and primitive passions, and as the center of the new

James-Weldon-Johnson_Harlem-Renaissance

James Weldon Johnson

Negro literature and art; the era in which it gained its place in the list of famous sections of great cities”. The Making of Harlem, is an article written by James Weldon Johnson, which was published in The Survey Graphic Harlem Number (March 1925) – the article has since ’gone global’.

Zora Neale Hurston (the literal & profound Capricorn) contributed four novels and more than 50 published short stories, plays, and essays to the credit of the era. She is best known for her 1937 novel “Their Eyes Were Watching God”. In a letter to Countee Cullen, Zora wrote:

“I have the nerve to walk my own way, however hard, in my search for reality, rather than climb upon the rattling wagon of wishful illusions.”

I agree with Zora as well as all of the artists that were involved in the movement & had great plans for the future. They thought that they could change the world and prevent racial prejudice with their literature and art, and this cultural conviction was taken more than less seriously. Even though we can look back now and see that their hopes were highly optimistic, it doesn’t change the fact that some of the best known African American Authors came from this period. Many wrote in Harlemese; meaning they wrote as they spoke – broken English and all. Zora Neale Hurston was one of the many authors during the Harlem Renaissance that wrote and spoke the lingo. Zora was a southern woman, born in the South but birthed in Harlem….again, much like myself.

The Harlem Renaissance era started this literal revolution that I stand on today. The Negro Movement has evolved over the last 90 years. I can truly say — what our ancestors put in place less than a century ago is still serving us today.

Literal, Black & Creatively Expressing,
I’m Qui (a word witty Leo she)
The Harlem Renaissance era is my current blessing.

Good morning Museful Monday. My weekend was great.
My collegiate studies were tended to; a strengthened GPA.

I did a little DIY artwork – to help me see clearer;
I applied strips of jewel-bling to my dresser mirror.

Pics are coming soon! It’s detail work in progress.
I was inspired by my headboard from Wayfair, I guess.

Coordination is what I’m into; let my socks match my shirt.
Let my unmentionables be a match and my scarf to my skirt.

Let my bag be like Cardi B‘s and filled with lots of M-O-N-E-Y.
I’m inspired to BACK IT UP, encouraged to script a new write.

It should encompass a little bit of you, a little bit of me and those other two…
I may even sprinkle in a bit of naught & a grin for my Monday Muse.

tracy-morgan_wordplay.gifA word orgy. Let’s do something rank!

HIGH MAINTENANCE

Season 3 Episode 3: BLONDIE – Have you had a chance to taste it?
I’ve watched it a couple of times and realize we have to face it:

FOLKS LIKE TO BE ELEVATED.

I must admit before season 3 episode 2, I hadn’t ever seen it before.
Dimensionally it is a success; check its IMDB score.

What’s more is that one of the show’s co-creators is more than a scripting factor,
he’s also the principle guy in the series; double credit as writer and an actor.

That’s what up!
I love it when one variable yields multiple cuts.

GOALS.

What’s the upkeep of your journey, how goes your lifestyle?
Are you high or low maintenance? Don’t put on for us, child.

Do your thing while you’re agile,
live incognito; live out loud.

Write up an idea about the world that you see,
then compose a POC and share it with me.

I say as much because beyond the day that I graduate
my POC’s and capacity will convey and facilitate.

I am very much into this.
There are not many stages of production that I care to miss.
Not if I really intend on (tomorrow), having this.

The Linguistic: GRIOT

In Communication, Griot, News on February 5, 2019 at 2:15 pm
pass-the-griot.png

To Inhale it equates to Comprehending it.

One of my main TAG WORDS is GRIOT. I very much like being identified with the historic West African Linguistic. [Griot is pronounced Gree-OH. ]

It was July of 2006— I’d taken my first trip to the BIG APPLE. I stayed in the PARAMOUNT HOTEL and all was well with the world, (according to my fantastic TIMES SQUARE view). To make a long story short and get to the point…while I was there, among all of the things I did and all of the monuments I visited, none were as memorable as meeting Fred Brathwaite aka Fab5Freddy. We hit it right off and took a ride in his Mercedes to delve more into what seemed to be a never-ending showcase of absolute & relative conversational rhyme…by yours truly of course. Fab was fantastic in encouraging me to do so and at some point, during our spontaneous conversation he dropped knowledge on me and informed me of a historical West African Linguistic called: Griot. Griot is the art form of telling stories and/or passing down cultural information IN RHYME.

Had you ever heard of it? I had not.

Thirsty for knowledgeI always am— so at the first free moment I had (post my conversation with F5F) I researched the heck out of the word Griot and how this linguistic thing worked. I, like many African Americans, have no clear record of where in Africa our families may have originated – so to be pointed to out of a crowd and told that my style of conversation likens to a tribe in W. Africa…I am thrilled, I am honored.

*´¨) ¸.·* ´¸.·*´¨) ¸.*·*¨) (¸.·´ (¸ .* ¸.·* )´¸.·*´¨) ¸.*·*¨) (¸.·´ (¸ .*

It doesn’t mean that’s where I’m from – nor does it mean that’s where I’m going,
but it’s good to know there’s a reference for the form of seeds that I’m sewing.

I’ve been talking in rhyme since my conversational begin.
I remember utilizing the skill & stunning my kin.

I remember my 2nd-grade teacher “literally” telling me —
that I was a poetic genius for my versing scheme.
Ooo Wee.

I didn’t know what it meant, but I kept the encouragement in stride
then it all made sense once I met the HIP HOP Statesman Fab 5.

It’s been all good on a daily – I enjoy sharing my comprehended flow
I’m Qui
and I’m grateful to know I’m DNA gifted something like a Griotte.

[Griot is the term usually referring to a male storyteller – Griotte is the term used for the female counter part]

Recognize the linguistic. Enjoy it's relativity.

We are in the 4th season of SHOWTIME’s series, THE CIRCUS with John Hieleman, Alex Wagner, and Mark McKinnon who are selling peanuts, popcorn, and front row seats to sift through seven days of political views under the current administration’s hue. If you haven’t noticed, it has been quite the sift-show.

Episode 2 of The Circus’ 4th season aired last night and the trapeze artists were all over the place; titling the previous week’s events as  ” Circling Vultures.” The opening had an Anthony Bourdain feel to it as we are meeting up with Mark and Alex in an NYC diner for their weekly rendezvous.; they call John and the sifting begins…

KAMALA HARRIS: “Let’s Do This!”

For those that say Kamala is a young senator that has not done enough outside of the state of California, THE CIRCUS has two names by comparison for you: Barack Obama and Donald Trump.

CLIFF SIMS, former Trump Advisor turned Aide has the cutest set of dimples and has published the most poisonous book of snakes: TEAM VIPERS. Cliff said there’s an atmosphere in the White House of  “Kill or be killed” kind-of vibe going on.” And then Cliff goes on to recall a line from TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, quoting, “Things are not as bad as they seem,” he continues, “That is how Donald Trump operates.”

SARAH SANDERS and the WHITE HOUSE PRESS BRIEF
yields the concerning public no sweet relief.

ROGER STONE‘s media tour of “I’ve Done No Wrong”
isn’t going so strong, despite paid aides fanning his throne.

MICHAEL BLOOMBERG is flirting to run in 2020;
as for advice to HOWARD SCHULTZ, he has plenty.

Both men are skilled and noted billionaires.
Neither man can relate to the average American Health Care scare.

Universal Healthcare & Healthcare for all,
just may be their identified APPEAL STALL.

COREY BOOKER, the Senator from NJ has thrown his hat in the race
and he did so in front of his domicile place; poised with relativity, hope, and grace.

Senator Booker’s tenacity for unity is no surprise
and his slogan hits home: “WE WILL RISE.”

Oh, Happy Day!

In Comedy, Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on January 30, 2019 at 4:24 am

oh-happy-day_smiley-face.jpgI am one y sister this morning.
Yesterday was the last day that TMJ reigned at dawning.

I’ve researched more than my migraine could stand
with a laptop, 2 leads on and a tens unit in my hand.

A migraine lasted for more than a week; it wouldn’t let up.
Every day felt like a hangover; I was annoyed by every touch.

I was really in a bind and I’d really had enough.
Yesterday’s migraine reigned long and tough

until I learned how to properly stretch my muscles.
Smoothing my SCM, Masseter, and Suboccipitals was a tussle.

They were years tight.
I almost cried – I thought I might.

Okay, I did. WHAT? I’m just a girl
and TMJ doesn’t fit the frame of my happy-go-lucky world.

I massaged my muscles in between tens treatments and further learned
that if you don’t move the lead-pads every 20-minutes you could get burned.

Yep. I burned my shoulders a little bit —
but my muscles are more relaxed, so the process was hit.

Today I am grateful. Today I did pray
when I woke up and realized that I felt great!

Oh, Happy Day!

What about you? How’s your vantage view?
Is the family good? How about your hood?
I really missed vibing with you.

Please tell me that you haven’t been watching the news?
What’s the point? We, the people are the joint;
Not politicians.
Me & you.

So what’s up? What are we going to do?
Are you free for lunch? I’ve enough for two.

Let’s sit and make plans for tomorrow, quick.
Let’s be mindful of what we take in – bad ingredients make us sick.

So cut back on the news and read a newspaper.
Cut back on the flower if you can vapor.

Um, I thought you might want to know that too.
Of course when it comes to homeopathic stuff – I got you, Boo! 😛

Today I hump lightly in jest and in love.
Today I’m giving you and good health a big hug.

LET’S HUG IT OUT:

Oui Oui Oui – SHORTS TV

In Comedy, Griot, Networking, Self Improvement, Video on January 28, 2019 at 9:52 am
short-film-shorts

I love SHORTS…

During my own personal “shutdown” (i.e., my 2.5-week & running visit with TMJ) I lean heavily on short films to keep my spirits up and my attention off of the pain. It works. Film-after-film I am enlightened, emotionally charged, humored, and alas, feeling less pain in my SCM and Masseter muscles. Endorphins counteract pain receptors.

#ResearchNerd 
#TMJSlapToTheFace

Being no fan of medicine (OTC or prescribed) I prefer natural and homeopathic remedies when my good health is challenged. For the chronic pains of TMJ, I prefer to administer MMJ topicals and edibles while watching original short films on DirecTV’s channel 573. It’s a winning combo if you’re trying to “be somewhere else without leaving the house.” 😉

Travel via channel 573 is the best way to go. You don’t speak multiple languages? How do you feel about subtitles? If you’re down – there are no limits to where you can kick-it.

This weekend I traveled well via these hard-hitting short films that took me far away from the tensions of TMJ. I found a few that had trailers and thought they’d be cool to share, so I started with:

WEST SIDE SWORDY:

.

WEST SIDE SWORDY [2015] yields strong homage to West Side Story in the frame of their tale of two street gangs and fight choreographies that was shot in California on a $15K budget. I loved the relative scene designs, the DJ who controlled more than the music and the integration of sword dancing. This is not a West Side Story re-make, but it is strongly inspired. Director Dan Liu and crew did a fantastic job on this 9-minute short that could have easily been a “Thriller-length” music video. Drop in on their website to catch the next showing: http://www.westsideswordy.com/

I then took a journey with Abraham, the principal character in IN GOD WE TRASH. Now before you send this one to the blasphemy bin hear me out. I really took this film to be hinting at a number of our population who say and do things in the name of Christianity to cover their own shortcomings. The film’s message is conveyed in a practical and comical way;  no offense – comprehend.  It’s only 22-minutes and is subtitled. Reading is fundamental – go for it!

IN GOD WE TRASH:

.

The following film was probably by far the silliest, most metaphorically visual film that I have seen in a long time. IS THIS A JOKE, (aka THIS IS A JOKE) is a fabulous comedy written by Tom Edmunds and whose Cinematographer is Luke Bryant. Laughter is a huge producer of endorphins, thus this show helped to TKO my TMJ pain easy. Here’s a teaser to a jam-packed comical pleaser:

I particularly like the way that Tom directs silliness; his vision is hilarious. To see a directors mind does little more to reveal to me the contents of his mind and Tom Edmunds mind is a colorful hoot. My TMJ didn’t stand a chance. Actually, I had to watch this film twice to catch all of the literal punches that were sewn into passing conversation. Believe it or not, on the second round I laughing harder, and reaped more of those pain-free endorphins. Yes-yes!!

It’s possible that I watched at least 20 short films this weekend to help keep my mind distracted from the taut pull of my sternocleidomastoid muscle and my masseter muscle. The pain is pass-out worthy, I just won’t give in.  Especially since there’s always  Probability & Statistics, Shorts TV, a Tens Unit, and BC Powder. 😛

There’s plenty to do than focus on TMJ’s hue. However, with all of the research I’ve done on it, I wouldn’t doubt that a future character in a future script will be battling this ailment.

The way it’s kicking my arse is a comedy, but I’m sure I could work it into a drama. STAY TUNED.

filmstrip-divider

So what have you got up for the day? I think I’m going to take it easy.
As much as I like “doing the most” – with TMJ it isn’t easy.

If you’re at the point of wondering why I keep bringing it up,
it is because it’s giving me a bear hug and the chronic pain sucks.

But I won’t lie, intense math equations help to keep me from focusing on;
and the hope of TMJ fading away is my prayerful sum,

I accessorize that with a couple of edible yum-yum’s and short film binging,
I’m Qui
Oui Oui to the reel vibes of Shorts TV and it’s assistance in my pain ending.

Watching more today because TMJ defense via endorphins is mind-bending.
Reviewing my peers’ films is what I call, “passionate time spending.”
