Hibbity Hump Day – Folks it’s Time To Slay

Bey Slay.gif

Hey, hey, hey!” Sounding like Rodg’s friend Dwayne,
What’s Happening” with you; how’s the view in your lane?

Me? I’m awake and up for goodgame.
Me? I’m the vehicle in the creative lane.

You? You’ve been on my mind for quite some time now;
different reasons ‘why‘ and dimensions on the ‘how.’

Believe me now, when I say that I’m enjoying the climb
that has delivered me to this day; my creative grind.

I’m happy y’all.
In a world of uncertainty, I have the gall.
I wish happiness for us all.
Flex your positive gall.

It’s Hibbity Hump Day, which sounds a lot like “hibbity hop.”
Saying “hibbity hop” reminds me of The Sugar Hill Gang – Hip Hop don’t stop.

Something like The HUSTLER’S CONVENTION, I’m a one-stop Griot shop.
I’m something like Lightnin’ Rod; The HC is not a publication that you can cop

but you can stay tuned to multiple flows like my own, for most Griotte’s are quite steady.
We are storytellers of the day born. I learned as much from Fab5Freddy.

I forget not, much. I am intrigued by various moves made.
I chronicle the view in rhyme. Griot is my mode of Slay.
Hey.

Hey-hey-hey!” I’m quoting Dwayne Nelson again,
I’m Qui
atop of this hump glad to be purveying and conveying What’s Happening.

It’s a total high day and I’m up for the win.
Come with. This vantage view is better with a friend.

Reflective FRIDAY

In Movies, Music, News, Science, Self Improvement, Video on May 8, 2020 at 5:30 am

Are you familiar with the headline song, beloved baby?
Have you heard of or bore witness to those big haired 80’s?

I am familiar; I was there.
It was a big time and we rocked with care.

Stiffness was for the hair and hair wasn’t consider an essential.
A stiff ball of hair is also not reflective of being presidential.

Would you agree there are concerns that the era that we’re in is unruly?
Good morning DOJ. Tell me, how are you doing, truly?

Please prove me wrong — I’m thinking you may not be blind.
How many fingers am I using to display this query pine?

paddling_punishmentYes, yes. Let me in – let me in, if you insist on bending over.
I considered you to be no mans lackey; don’t want to call you Rover.

Don’t be tacky, baby. Pray tell “what’s really going on?”
If a man pleads guilty — it’s because a man is wrong.

We are all American’s, we are living cautiously not dumb.
I must say whatever you’re smoking, I don’t want none —

it doesn’t smell right an this truly isn’t the time
for us to be divisive in order to embolden a party line.

This just is not the time nor is it the day.
The world is looking at the inside crooking of our united DOJ.

the-hill_supreme court bldg.jpgHey, from that hill, we’ve long hailed a cry of justice and glory.
Headline news today tells a very weak and different story.

Headline news is talking about you.
‘Hold your head DOJ; the people need you to.

Meaning, stand your ground in being sound.
America’s throwback reputation deserves a pound.

I know, I know – I know what you’re thinking
America has been dirty before; her tact was stinking.

It’s true. It’s true, a stinking past we all do have.
That’s no reason to jump into season “Let’s all stink like ass.”

Right?
DOJ, please “walk towards the light”.

[@2:00]

Pull your pants back up; no moons, please – we seek the sunshine.
Let’s get back to law keeping order; our choice of wielding pine.

jiggly-thigh_girl.gifDOJ: Hold those scales and close your eyes.
Someone please take some fabric and wrap up her thighs.

She is quite giving.
It’s not a good look for where we are living.

DOJ, DOJ. I am thinking about you
and all of the good that you’ve spurred and all you still DO.

You’ve still got our eye, please don’t change on we.
It’s sexy to live up to your potential and strengthen our legacy.

I am not going to give up on thee. I am just not one to quit.
Though the “ON MY OWN” video is how I feel in my spirit.

I feel like we, as American’s are ‘on our own.’
I feel like MacCaulay Culkin in HOME ALONE.

But you keep saying that ‘you are home.’ May I ask if you’re incognito?
I’m Qui
and the people, “we” just want to make sure that nothings wrong

Be Encouraged.

As important as DOJ NEWS is right now,
Covid19 continues to claim more lives anyhow.

Don’t forget it.
The state can reopen, but you don’t have to “get with it.”

This is not the time to return to normal and flex resilient clout
by laughing at PPE and insisting on taking your family out.

The weekend is upon us again
and I am coming to you as a friend

and asking you not to go out to that bar.
That day is coming – but not here by far.

Stick with me, kinfolk.
Look out for you; don’t be antsy and choke.

You may have to go to work, because the rent don’t stop.
But you don’t have to mingle with friends or cluster shop.

This moment in time is like ‘having sex with no condom in a day
when folks are dying in droves of AIDS.

Mondays Mercies

Mondays-Mercies.jpg
.
Good morning beloved. Did you rise early today?
I did. Me and the fam have plans to work and play.

How on Earth did you spend your Easter Sunday?
I wrote a short film and storyboarded the way.

I’m in a Short Film production challenge with friends.
We are charged to produce a film about physical distance.

A financial prize will go a long way on the rent.
Composing a comedy is a how my Easter was spent.

And then boom! The alarm went off this morning.
I was up at at 4am, with a quick goodbye to yawning.

I-want-to-be-with-you.gifGood morning beloved! I sure wish that you were here.
This “physical distancing thing” has me yearning to be near.

Monday be Merciful to us all and level out the numbers
of folk affected by the virus; official ineptitude bungle.

I arose this morning early because I like to pray;
check in with God, thank Him for my mind and bod,
before going forward to play out the day.

While kneeling in reverence I thought about you,
and inserted into my prayer, that God pull you through.
Check in with Him, for what you should and shouldn’t do.
He’s got the whole world… so he got you, too.

Live more mindfully during this era. Pray for divine & life saving insight.
Wear PPE to protect your family, KL, & me! And “we gone be alright!”

What do you think? How’s the fam feeling?
Boris Johnson was sick, and now he’s healing.

The world could use a little bit  more of that. I’d say it’s quite thirsty.
The world is full of much ignorant bull, I pray today for Monday’s Mercies.

Could you use some? Mercy is a verb
when the kids are at home from school and on your nerves.

Is that what’s up?
Consider the kids to be “gifted love.”

Think about it — you work so much to hold-it-all on the line.
When were you ever going to carve out so much family time?

who-me_black-guy.gif

Yes, you.

You probably were not. So, this moment-in-time is a gift. Do let it be.
Dig-in and wear a grin as you thank God for Monday’s Mercies.

Every free moment that you have today, please use it to pull rank,
by conversing with God (in your mind) and throwing in a few “thanks.”

It will go a long way in your energy yield and I’m confident that you’ll find,
Monday to be full of beloved Mercies wrapped in a Covid19 time.

Everything is going to be fine once we, collectively heed and yield respect to,
I’m Qui
Happy to be among the living with thee. We will only get better if we expect to.

Key BLACK HISTORY: Multi Media PLAYERS IV

In Communication, Griot, Movies, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on February 24, 2020 at 6:30 am


.
Alright, Good People: I’m at it again, with something that you can feel
in the spirit of Black History, I’m thrown back to JORDAN PEELE.

Have you seen the new Amazon series THE HUNTERS?
It parallels todays hell; the script is a punter.

I am enjoying the series install.
It’s a throwback view of — us all.

This show takes a particular look into hate,
the law, the people; a legacy page.

A lot is up for debate on this piece.
Composed of real stories, yet hard to believe.

Give it up people: for content creators who keep it real.
Give it up people:  for the history of Jordan Peele.

He is showing you yourself – regardless of your race.
The Hunters series has potential; may it take its place.

HOME. I am an American. The American way yields an intellectual key.
Home. I am an American; I am about her values and BLACK HISTORY.

BAD BOYS For LIFESpeaking of making history, let’s talk about Martin and Will —
and the alchemy of good times they have captured in their reel.

BAD BOYS came back this year and made history;
approaching $200 million box office reception carries mystery.

Like, why is it that folks have turned out to see them in show?
Is it likely we missed the days of wholesome entertainment, so….

We bought tickets to sit in the theater and be consumed
with yesterdays situation and these beloved two.

What is it about yesterday that invokes us to congregate,
pay a door fee in hopes to rewind history and improve today?

Whatever it is… let’s all hold to it.
When it comes to supporting Box Office Numbers
please continue to DO IT.

The BAD BOYS franchise is raking it all in
because yesterday was good and karma is a friend.

Not to mention that one of the cast members claims to be an Alchemist.
Both relate in laughter, though making gold belongs to Will.

He remains reflecting that “go getters appeal.”
Martin Lawrence is still the neighbor who ‘we feel.’

Scripting realities is quite the reflection of yet another —
Mr. Writer/Director/Executive Producer, Donald Glover.

Donald is Childish Gambino (the musician) and he knows full well,
what type of patience it takes to produce: A-T-L.

It’s been off of the air for a spell but is slated to come back with plenty.
In 2018 FX renewed for Season 3 and 4 to be broadcast the year after 2020.

It’s not easy being independent. So many of us want to be.
So give it up to the brother that embodies it; give it up DG/CG.

Which brings to mind another no limit storyteller
Curtis “50Cent” Jackson gets better and better!

Have you seen the view of his latest characteristic plight?
It stars Nicholas Pinnock in a new series called FOR LIFE:

Like Power, FOR LIFE takes off quickly.
The storyline is relative and connects swiftly.

A Multi Media Player usually plays more than one role;
an influencer of views to be told and to be sold.

Any chance that you’re watching either of these shows?
Your support is appreciated and I hope the show moves your soul.

Black History month is short and perhaps that was the calendar goal.
I am grateful for any reservations to culture-uplift and boast.

I’m a Multi-Media player; I write, chronicle, direct and shoot,
I’m Qui
Just taking a moment with thee to shine a light on our Black AmericanRoots.

A More Meaningful Monday

give-thought-meaningful.gif

It’s Monday again, but what does it mean?
Are we to comprehend what others say and unravel at the seams?

Me think not.
The day is young and the seat ain’t hot.

Is it?
I woke up early to Griot spit-it.
What about you? TAG! You’re it.

the-gavel.gifWhat are your intentions to see this day through?
It’s a friendly question from me to you.

What sayest ye on this Monday, good fellow?
Did you sleep well last night; was your weekend mellow?

Mine was. Regardless of the relentless hug
that Congress yielded to us; I call it love.

I rested well; meditated and stuff.
That’s what I do at impositions marked “rough.”

And I do believe that history will recall —
this era to be “rough” without an inked stall.

The moment is trying.
But I ain’t buying.

self-hug.gif

Life is intended to be lived;
to love to laugh, receive and give.

What are you giving today?
No hardness or bubblegum focus on the play.

Me? I’m giving encouragement, compliments, and love.
Starting with myself; I will begin with a HUG.

Did you hug yourself today?
Go on and list-it-out followed by a bullet point to PLAY.
It’s imperative that you don’t forget. Okay?

Inject and acquire more Meaning today.
Voice your opinion and comprehend the say.
Be mindful in the moment: A More Meaningful Monday.
Get up, get out, and get something; let OUTKAST play:

.

Today is a fine day because you’re alive and good moves are within your reach.
I’m Qui
and this day would have little meaning without you – pray for the dude whose under impeach.

In the spirit of “more meaning,” call it a good deed.
Let a blanket of love be our collective response and release.

The perfect way for this piece to end —
is to request more prayers for the loved ones of:

Kobe, Gigi, and Friends.

Make it A More Meaningful Monday.

 

 

 

 

I’m no Insider to THE OUTSIDER but

In Book, Communication, Movies, Science, Video on January 22, 2020 at 8:13 am

Heck yeah! I like it.
Stephen King serves excitement.

I haven’t read the book, tho I think I will
for the first 3 episodes of THE OUTSIDER has dimensional appeal.

Jason Bateman is the Executive Producer
who took Stephen’s book and became a juicer.

Now I don’t know where the series script is going,
but I am pretty sure that the writers hand isn’t showing.

I watched carefully and intently across three episodes.
What I found was circumstance and supernatural whoa.

THE OUTSIDER is nothing like Sam and Dean’s SUPERNATURAL adventure.
It’s a fresh spin on family & friends with an untimely indenture.

Not to mention an alleged child killer — who isn’t the killer at all.
He attempted to hurl his innocence, and met a fatal fall.

Yes-yes y’all. Folks are vanishing like flies in this macabre.
Coach Terry’s world is on a cliff hurl; a spirit impersonates him on camera.

Yep. No human  being can be in two places at one time.
Though this is THE OUTSIDER’s modus operandi vine.

Stephen King! Stephen King! Where hast thou mind been?
Perhaps at home alone, justifying not hanging with friends.

I’m sure that Stephen King is a fairly like-able dude
but I’m also thinking he’s alone when he sits and scripts such juice.

I, too, am a writer and with full reflective intent
who bridges-not scripts of friends’ lives being spent.

I’m not a horror kid, but I am indeed well read,
and there’s something to be said about a writers head:

It has no limits.
Creativity is solid; not a gimmick.

As a writer I am an insider whose keen on bearing out scripted theories.
THE OUTSIDER is a Stephen King exciter and I very much like the series.

Thus far…
Jason Bateman is a dimensional star.

3 episodes-in and I am truly less wiser.
Stephen owns the view and wears the creative visor.

DO tune in quick – to avoid being the outsider.

Next episode airs on Sunday @ 7pm; HBO does not miss,

Toasting to diverse scripts.

Last night, last night was about scripted writes.
We gathered before the sky took moonlight.

We sipped and drank, and shots were called.
Literally celebrating the leave of ol’ Fall.

We did so with open hearts and minds
we mingled over the new scripted finds.

Then we read…
with the drink about our heads.

Idris-Elba-eating.gif

Yeah, we had the CAJUN WINGS, too.

Sober? We were and all feeling well.
T’is was the perfect setting for a SCRIPT READING spell.

The readers in tow represented Millennials and Generation Z.
Then there were the older kids; kids who graduated with me.

Okay, to be honest when I’ve the opportunity to hang w/younger folk, I’m pretty glad.
It’s good to feel youth extended — and not play the role of ‘the mom or dad.’
Yes! A good time was definitely had.

We read 2 short films – all original content.
We did so expeditiously; only 90-minutes were spent

breathing life into the formatted short scripts.
The guest comments are vital; I put them on my hip.

Something like a gun holster would adequately hold.
The minds of the future are todays think-tank gold.

was full of high spirits, wet-spirits, all-smiles and no fight.

The party wrapped before 10 but we still had a little gin
and wine left over to sip.
We partied until Uber came, we grabbed our things and we dipped.

A night downtown was owned by a party of social-minded script readers
whose opinions weigh heavy me. I’m the receptive writer; I’m eager.

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,”

ALTERED CARBON

In Communication, education, Griot, Movies, Networking, News, Politics, Science, Self Improvement on August 24, 2019 at 6:51 am

Let’s talk about NETFLIX and all of their streaming…
let’s talk about ALTERED CARBON and it’s layered meanings…

I can’t begin to tackle the narrative series with certain clarity
because I just found it’s broadcast and the concept is “altering.”

The linguistics that encompass this show reflect a united world.
I like it – I won’t lie; I’m a linguistic and futuristic girl.

The protagonist in this piece
is an Asian guy wearing a white sleeve.

Looking like Rick Flag from SUICIDE SQUAD
with Jackie Chan’s moves and BLADE’s old bod.

Yes, Joel Kinnaman plays the series protagonist
who’s been re-bodied and remains on a shortlist

of ENVOY walkers.
Their bodies are weapons – they’re not big talkers.

Hand-to-hand combat scenes that look like video games
and the constant flashes of life before and after – are insane.

Have you seen such a thing?
The concept of avoiding death by dawning a new sleeve?

The body gets old, it can be injured and die,
but future technology is looking to re-home your essence of life.

Kind of like the concept of THE SIXTH DAY,
Joel is like Arnold Schwarzeneggar, in a way –

as in he has been re-bodied
and prefers a brew over yesterdays sake.

The writers have got me; I’m watching Season 1 in a binge.
I’m also concerned about mother Earth and her surface singe.

Fossil fuel is yesterdays rule and must come to an end.
Unless we want to be like the dinosaurs and cause Earth to start over again

without us inhabiting her land. For that would be a problem.
Earth is being mistreated by human issues. We can solve them.

At current, there is a 3-week old fire burning in the AMAZON
set by human beings — so it won’t bring the Apocalypse on,

but it will release MORE CARBON emissions into the air – a fatal falter.
Our air quality on Earth will degrade; our lives forever ALTERED.

But we’re not quite like the Netflix show.
We only have this life and this one body sleeve, yo.

What are we doing?
Earth is not the woman that we want to be screwing.

She is willing to be silent and let you burn and die off.
Thinking about space travel? Today it is not yours to be bought.

PUT THE FIRE OUT. Cease and desist on the idea of making a profit.
God gave the Earth to all of us – before you destroy it, He’ll stop it.

He won’t come back as in bursting through the clouds,
because man has put forth plans to burn mother Earth to the ground.

But He will continue to look after His children who remain fair
and secure a pit for those who support Earth’s fiery land snares.

It’s simple. Think about it for just one minute.
When folks set traps for others, they, themselves fall in it.

It’s old news, its life news. There’s nothing new about this story.
So if you’re wondering if Jesus is on his way? This is no invitation to glory.

This is a tale being told by a man.
If you’re a praying person, God has a plan.

Get in it and get busy caring for your Earth.
Selfish money hoarders, there’s a pit for your girth.

Pray for the world – yes! And remember God is mightier than Gibraltar,
I’m Qui
Up early thinking about CARBON emissions and things being ALTERED.

The bed you make will be your own.
To burn down the AMAZON is to burn down your own home.

YOU LIVE ON EARTH!

Hit it!

Ah! Where to begin? There is so much to go through —
the day is early and I’ve much to tend to.

I’ve got a script to create, at least the bones of it.
The concept is strong; I nailed the film’s pitch.

It’s an all-encompassing piece – you know I have an itch,
for pulling us all-together and securing our stitch.

So this project is easily classified as a feel-good piece.
It’s dramatic and suspenseful during its short-timed release.

When it comes to scripting new roads – I’m a no limit beast.
The film topic is a well-thought fit, about the commonalities of WE.

nice teeth coexist.pngYou, me, he and she
and them and him; we’re America’s teeth

and we don’t have TMJDwe don’t self-grind.
In the trenches of diversity, we find commonality and we bind.

Am I right?
Well yeah… that’s the way I composed my scripted write.

Another cool thing that I’ve done while in compose
is to script-collaborate with another peer for a longer reel-roll.

In working with another student I can add time on the run of our scripted truths.
So, instead of the short being a total of 5 minutes, we can have 10 via Part 1 & Part 2.

You see what I’m doing here?
Enjoying school; applying gamification over fear.

Why not? I prefer to play all of the time.
I’m doing it right now via this griot rhyme.

She’s graceful
