Monday Morning Goodness

In Communication, Griot, Music, TV Shows on October 12, 2020 at 2:20 am

Who doesn’t love “goodness in the morning? I know that I like it, yo. It’s in the sheets, in the streets, and in this cup of jo. Oh!

Good morning kinfolk. This cup of jo under my nose is the strongest. And if you think either candidate has this election ‘in the bag,’ — you’d be the wrongest.

Let urgency find no one sitting idle. I filled out my ballot; used my pen like a mallet, now I’m off to the poll excited & unbridled. Any chance that you feel remotely the way I do?

Monday Morning Goodness, you are everything to me. I look forward to meeting you at the start of every week. On you I am sweet. Serially.

The weekend found me missing you, and writing quite a bit. I chronicled my roots, like Alex Haley did.

I love histories that are not hid. Beloved, do you know from whose DNA of which you were chipped? Where’d you get those eyes, those lips those thighs or those hips?

Does your family have a legacy chronicler? Are you, yourself – it? The weekend found me “finding myself.” I chronicled our tree quite a bit.

I felt a little like Black Thought; something-like a walking HBCU. Monday Morning Goodness when research-jonesing it is good to start with you.

I’d love to write a book or two but I keep getting side-lined with Final Draft. Film writing is my default; compositions of fiction and/or fact.

I can’t help but to give-in to that; I can’t help but to give-in to you. You are the best day 1 before day 2, and you’ve got some pretty impressive grooves. Ooo.

Be good to we, be good to me; shine your goodness for the world to see,

I’m Qui

a fan of thee, and the goodness of your opportunities.

Weekend Speakin’

In Advertise, Communication, Griot, Music, Networking, Video on October 2, 2020 at 5:15 am

I feel like a verser, a freestyler, a battle rapper, a babe. I feel a moment coming upon me where I don’t want to behave.

Putting it on the mic is brave. Check 1-2. Can you hear me > hear me?The echo is my signature, yo; philosophers endear me.

The unintelligent could fear thee; agree with them quickly. Handle your business, avoid glibness, and return to base swiftly.

The weekend is speaking, and it is saying to you, “Keep your head on a swivel, be a giving-giver, and build a rep of following through.”

This piece is composed for you. What have you got planned for the weekend?

I’m Qui

Sweet on thee and the griot POV. The weekend is ours to win.

Let’s get it in.

Today is a good day. I can feel it in my bones.
Today is a good day because I’m beloved by my T-jones.

Today is a good day because I get to talk to you.
Monday is one of my favorite days; it conveys the week anew.

I’m wearing a flower headband sitting upright in bed and I’m sipping cold jo.’
The sun is on its way to meet the day. I’m starting mine with you, yo.

How did your weekend go? Was it a productive scene?
I spent time pressing play and rewind on Beyonce’s Black Is King.

I can’t get enough of that feel-good piece.
God bless Disney for such a sweet and reflective release.

Beyonce and Jay Z — as a power couple are beast!
They portray what they feel and uphold “the real;”  
they are investing in legacy.

Home is where your heart is, and your heart resides within.
No matter where you go or where you live, you will always be among kin.

Life is short. Live every moment ‘up and smile as much as you please.
Monday’s possibilities are for your realities. Conquer them with ease.

Happy Labor Day, baby. Will you spend it eating saucy, good food?
I’m Qui
Glad to be spending it with thee – I’m forgoing the delicious ‘Q for more produce.

Lifestyle changes are always in play.

Blow The Whistle

Yes, I did. I woke up with Too Short’s song in my head.
I didn’t yawn much but did a lot of bobbing to the beat in bed. 😛

I booty-popped down the stairwell and into the kitchen.
Once I was on the tiled floor I put some real work in.

calculating-cat.jpg

You should’ve seen me. I can really go.
Afterward, I brewed a real stiff cup of jo.

The weekend is at hand and I plan to lead the band.
I’m redecorating the house; new furniture is in the plan.

A manicure and pedicure will also be had.
I’ll laser the middle because later I’ll be bad.

I’m not booty-popping for no specific reason.
Fall is on the way and I want to have the tightest season.

Wink-wink. You know.
Be grown this morn’ and let your imagination go.

It’s ok to let loose a little. Ain’t nobody here but you and I,
I’m Qui
jam with me; move in sync and share the intent in your eyes.

I want to know what you really mean.
Let every move strengthen the scene.

No Weak End Here

In Communication, education, Griot, Movies, Music, Networking, News, Self Improvement, Video on September 4, 2020 at 7:56 am

Good morning, good morning, good morning to you. Friday is up for the taking. What do you want to do?

Have you been enjoying the presidential candidates in their new styles of campaigns? November is less than 60-days away; patriotic votes will reign.

The contrast between the two candidates is so very stark. One displays a bleak reality and the other one exhibits hope and heart.

It’s good to have choices; please do stay informed — of who’s saying what, shooting from hip or gutdecipher the intent of charm.

Polls roll in & polls roll out; some are tight and some are wacky.
I should know, I watch a show that rosters Steve Kornacki.

Polls don’t voice the sum of our whole, they are just insight. I watch lightly, and pray mightily: “God please make America alright.”

I watched the film HARRIET last night and I was blown away. Cynthia Erivo is everything, yo! Dare I say that she is one of the greats?

Have you seen her work in The OUTSIDER? Her flex of skill has an Edward Norton appeal; I know few who are brighter.

Tom Hanks is one of the few who submerges himself in a script. Cynthia Erivo is neck and neck; she breathes every moment real.

She also starred in Bad Times at The El Royale. Artists who eat, sleep, and birth script deep are craftsmen I call pals.

Cynthia’s capacity marks her “rare biz.” Every piece that she’s in is a hit. Who in the world is her agent? Kudos to Cynthia’s career dimensions.

I’ve also been watching a great deal of Disney Plus. The BLACK IS KING album is worth all of the fuss. Nourishment by Beyonce is a mass must;

she sings parallels and makes generational relations. Her video FORMATION should be the voting theme across the nation.

Are you ready? I sure am. The weekend is at hand.
I’m Qui
always thinking of thee. Dimensions keep us from being bland.

And Today is

In Communication, Griot, Music, News, TV Shows on August 31, 2020 at 5:48 am

Today is the beginning of another week of winning. I’m an early bird on the grinning, due to my nocturnal dream and the romp-winning 

that it entailed. I remember doing kegels and parallels. Today is going to be swell; I’m happy to be alive and I hope that you’re well.

Do tell if you watched the VMA awards? Were you satisfied with the winners and did the musical acts go hard? 

I didn’t watch it, but I read all about it. Headlines say ‘Gaga was the  -ish, and I don’t doubt it. 

The Weekend took home video of the year; best composition of scene — Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande took home best video during quarantine. 

KeKe Palmer was the show host, I do enjoy her vibe. I hate I missed the VMA’s; headlines read like it was live. 

And Today will exceed the weekends hype because you’ve got your health and you’re still alive.

I’m up early feeling a party-type vibe. In the season of Virgo I’m thinking of Fab5.

Today is his annual born day; in essence his pre-party was the VMA’s.

Michael Jackson‘s born day was 2-days ago and Bey’s birthday will be in fo.’

Virgo, o’ Virgos, we love you so. Your perfection plays out well in most award shows. 

And so today will surely follow the Virgoan suit. Power to the people who bear wheat and produce fruit. 

Happy Monday to you, as well as to all of the zodiac signs,

I’m Qui

And Today’s Virgo breeze is the best of its kind! 

Monday Morning Party Play

In Advertise, Communication, Griot, Music, News, Video on August 24, 2020 at 6:36 am

Good morning griot readers. What headline is good for the mention? The DNC did their thing last week, today we do the RNC convention.

How did the weekend do you? Did you network well; did you play? Did you happen to hear that Kellyanne Conway put in her resignation today?

The wired news hit my cell phone when I was first waking up.  Seems she and her hubby are professionally retreating; arresting the couple’s-cut-up’s.

I’m sorry to hear that their careers are such stress holders. I hope that the both of them can heal and maintain each other’s shoulders.

The weight of the world should not reside in any single relationship. God bless the Conway’s remainder and the first lady’s spouse’s lips.

Shooting from the hip is fun until somebody gets sick and dies.  America needs new brake shoes to slow down the Corona vibe.

There’s word that it may come in the form of a quick vaccine.  I’ve little faith in the hill’s word, so none for me, please.

Not right now – anyways.  Monday is at hand with new conveys.

What is your objective, what is your agenda? Are you all set to vote? It’s going down in November.

Today is big for me, I have much on my plate.  I’ve got marketing packages to compose and relay.

Digital upgrades and maintenance content are necessary tickets. It’s a party all day over here, no idle time or crickets.

Reading and research will rule a large part of my day.  For B2C – there’s the Prius and me; gassed up and on the way.

Ride shotgun with me if you’ve got time off today.  Let’s network, think-tank, and workout with Kieaira LaShae.

A party is a party within a party of one or more,

I’m Qui

Today’s party will be at the RNC. God bless the factual score.

STAY FOCUSED.

Wait a minute Mr. Postman

In Advertise, Communication, education, Griot, Music, Networking, News, Video on August 21, 2020 at 5:47 am
My mailman is always happy on his route.

I have always been in awe of the postal office processes, the mailmen & women, and the postmaster. Because I had two aunts who retired from service and a cousin who is currently employed with the USPS (for decades now) – as a child, I thought every family had a member in it that worked for the post office; who wore those cute & comfort bearing uniforms:

The USPS brand palette of colors speaks volumes towards the services that they provide; delivering friendly, warm, comforting, and supportive parcels.

As a content creator, I couldn’t resist showing off the USPS’ Coolors. Coolors is a color palette generating tool that I use when creating visual content. Colors invoke emotion. Here’s a great write up on colors, branding, and how people react on 99Designs. It’s a quick read and I enjoyed it.

My multimedia composition career is a colorful one. Every day is new and every client brings a new campaign that needs to be composed, packaged, and delivered. I sit up, pop my knuckles, read the schematics, and drive home tailored text with images and an effective color palette to support the call to action.

Delivering digital content is my profession. Delivering mail content is the job of the postmaster and postal workers. Where are they and where is the mail?

Like Johnny Carson revealed time after time, no one knows and no one’s talking. In the red state where I live, delivering the community mail has long been a “contract gig” – at least for the last 3-years.

MY ANSWER: On purpose and to deter.

The reveal of THE QUESTION inside of the envelope that is pressed against my forehead reads: With November so close, what is the issue with the post office? 

I’m no swami, I’m a content writer; most researched best – though I, too, put on a COGIC hat and pressed an envelope to my forehead.

The letter was dated one month back, but I had just received it. The contents had long come to past – so there was no urgency to read it.

I’d already talked to the addresser and they wondered, ‘did the post office eat it?  Then the song of MJ started to play – in thought; mail delivery “word” is beat it.

And life is rarely a bore – refer to the Democratic Convention. Pack comfy shoes & to-go food before hitting the polls and voice intention.

Life is at hand – let’s make it grand.  Pause on writing letters and visit if you can.

Mail in your ballots early and vote as early as allowed. This is the year to give Democracy a cheer. Vote and be loud!

You got this. Consider your due diligence to be patriotic fancy.  Be sure to bring your ear buds and jam. Alas, you got this Annie.

I’m here with you. Support is always key!
I’m Qui

It’s the weekend baby – keep your eye on the U.P.

About The BIRTHDAY GIRL

In #SeveralLayersDeep, Communication, education, Griot, Music, News, Self Improvement, Video on August 15, 2020 at 1:51 pm

An intimate throwback, because The Birthday Girl has your back:

I ain't never cared | Qui Entertainment Magazine

About Life…

WHO ME?

I ain’t never cared what you think about me,
or how you’ve always been free

or about your ethnic background –
if you’re of gentile or jewish crown.

I have not cared one bit
whether Governor Christi is fat or fit,

or if Hillary Clinton still looks good in daisy dukes
or who the Repubs will poll as their next “leading suit.”

I have absolutely given it no thought – because I do not care,
tho I am interested in what is just and what is fair.

The Dream Act, the removal of the confederate flag, racism and marriage rights for the LGBT
are definitely issues that get my attention and concern me.

I am into all people feeling good. Inclusivity is generally best.
Thank God we don’t HAVE TO judge – so we can wear the nonjudgmental vest.

Yes! Marriage equality is LAW and the Supreme Court said so.
It no longer matters the way your heart pitter-patters – to the alter, you’ve the option to go.

I don’t reckon there’ll be too much of an influx to and fro – but if it is don’t make the subject HOT.
Think not about it, (if you morally doubt it), remain cordial and just give it to GOD.

qui_i-aint-never-cared.gifLOVE is the most of the things that God has instructed us to do.
So to my Christian fam – the good book is now talking to me and you.
Oooo. You’ve gotta embrace the truth.

Personally I don’t care who marries whom. I’m happy and wish all others to be,
I’m Qui
and I ain’t never cared about much beyond what’s fair, love, equality, and good deeds.

Thank God we’ve got a major civil issue out of the entanglement of our hair.
Just respect your brother and remember: An act of kindness shows God that you care.
THIS I care for.
XO!!

Any Given THURSDAY

Thursday.png

Good morning goodness. How are you so soon?
It’s almost 5am yet, I’m at 5-minutes til’ noon.

I’ve been awake for quite a while, so the sun will need to catch up.
I awoke to playing footsies and then I put-in on some love.

You know that I’m on my cardio; I’m trying to be “less.”
So playing twister with the Mr. is my fat burning confess.

It assists in melting stress. I’ve certainly no stress at this moment.
I do have treatments to bake and POC‘s to make;
creativity is mine – and I’m on it.

Human touch is necessary; the human spirit is real.
Monday through Hump Day we fight to get atop of the weeks hill.

Alas, here we are.
The week has been an incredible journey thus far.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

Its capacity to be perpetual has long become mundane.
I won’t lie to you, goodness, I’m looking for things to change

significantly.
Sex should exceed Thursday’s indefinitely.

Life is a lot like sex. Agree? You’re either giving it or you’re getting.
Think of your bed as a yielding casino – get in there and start to betting.

Are you a stallion or rider?

Pick a horse and ride it like you’re wearing silicone spurs.
Be generous as you broach the cusp; fellas, please yield her’s first.

Pardon me. Do you find this piece to be a bit dir-tay?
Yeah well, that’s usually how I feel on Any Given Thursday.

And it’s okay. We’re all human; we can all relate.
As long as we live, to Mother Earth we’ll be kids
please don’t stall on the grown-up play.
It’s fantastic on a Thursday.

Alas, here we are, happily satisfied before the sun’s rise, yo.
The agile me – will make breakfast for thee and the sweetest cup of jo.

How much more goodness does this week hold?
I’m Qui
A Thursday loving she. Hardly secretive, but quite bold.

Let today find you doing whatever feels good to your soul.
