A MoveMe vs A Movie

In Movies, Networking, News, TV Shows, Video on July 22, 2019 at 5:07 am

FilmProjector_ReelTapeWhat’s the difference between a #MoveMe and a #Movie?
Everything.

Just because both are excellent examples of #ReelScience and are entertaining – they are not the same.

Over the last 15-days I have patronized DIRECTV OnDemand and CINEMA services more than I have AMC and I must say my couch gives those theater recliners comfy-competition. Don’t get me wrong, I have lost no love for patronizing the movie theater – in fact, it’s just the opposite, between my homework and career, I have very little time for movie date nights or afternoon solo-movie outings.  Thank God for satellite and streaming services. The two movies that have inspired me did so equally; though they affected me differently. One is a #MoveMe and one is a #Movie:

FAST COLORS

US

Let’s talk about FAST COLORS first. Do you know Julia Hart?
I didn’t before this film and I love our introductory start.

FAST COLORS is about three generations of women within one family who have a relative supernatural gift that has global healing effects. Bo, (short for Bonnie) the matriarch and is portrayed by Lorraine Toussaint and her gift is being able to transform solids into atom-sized particles and manipulate them. Gugu Mbatha-Raw portrays Ruth, the only child of Bo and who’s past is checkered with waywardness and self-inflicted hurdles from the past straight to the future. Saniyya Sidney plays Lila, the only beloved

grandchild of Bo’s and the daughter of Ruth. This film is not a feel-good-family feature in the beginning. To be fair, the opening of the film canvases what looks like a mother/young daughter bond processing before sharp transitional glitches propel the footage into a scene of chaos only including a young girl.

After a few jarring scene snippets at the opening, I figured that the writer/director was trying to piece something together for us; though for me, the pieces did not quite fit. Then ACT 2 brought it all together…literally. Fast Colors is about being able to see your purpose; previsualizing the task before you and working it out accordingly. This family’s life task would not only serve them well in becoming a tighter family unit but it actually offered a huge benefit to the world.

Their family reminded me of the possibilities within my own; I am expecting great achievements from specific family members who are not even aware that they encompass greatness. I cried at the screening of FAST COLORS because it painted a beautiful picture of hope in a time when the world needs it most. I was moved to be a more positive supporter of others who are lost or don’t exactly understand their purpose.

I literally took it to heart
and am encouraged to mimic the FAST COLORS art.

I took a deep breath and had a cocktail
before familial hope was nearly shot to hell

in US.
The slow beginning was rough

but it picked up quickly and took on a thicker plot at the end.
Not even I expected it and I was prompted with spoilers – by a friend.

Until ACT 2, I almost lost interest when I did not understand
the high capacity of the nightmare in the director’s hand.

My initial WHY arose when a mirrored family showed up in the protagonist family yard.
Had I known WHY I would have been more scared, but good Lord

I was immovable at the mayhem without my beloved why.
My film emotions were in place but were ‘activation’ shy.

Post the close of the movie, I had a clearer reflection of Jordan Peel‘s WHY.
Still, I feel I would have enjoyed a little more ACT 1 glue, i.e., sub-story insight.

Having said as much, this movie truly deserves all of its accolades and hype.
I enjoyed it in dimensions; Jordan Peel’s talent is quite ripe.

BOTH FILMS yielded fun and refreshing 411 that I wanted to know,
I’m Qui
One film made me jump and the other prompted me to grow.

Entertainment & Education go well in a fold.
The  d i f f e r e n c e  between
A #MoveMe vs. A #Movie
is how it  a f f e c t s  in your soul.

 

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

It’s a total high day and I’m up for the win.

Good morning sweetheart. How goes your morn?
I’m up feeling refreshed – waiting on the dawn.

May I get you a cup of jo and a warm face towel?
Would you like an additional consonant? How about a vowel?

Ooo child, the fun that I had over the Fourth of July weekend
included me, fireworks and a rather knowledgeable gentleman.

A really good friend
is always well-worth the spend.

Museful Monday come hug me; I’m most thankful for friends

that can meet me in thought and inject a win.
This is exactly how I want my week to begin:

I’m SO GONE with thoughts

Thank you, o’ relative fun-day.
I remain excited about my Museful Monday’s.

What bringeth you – me, to further top
just what I know is cooking in the shop?

Creativity in my composition has been renewed.
I filled ‘the pot’ with sweet grinds and it brewed.

Ooo-oo-oo.
Good Morning Museful MondayI’m so into you.

THURSDAY is HER DAY

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows on June 27, 2019 at 7:53 am

thursday.jpgMe and Thursdays — we go way back
like 4 new tires on a Cadillac.

It just is what it is.
I’m all about that ‘Thursday biz.’

What are you up to today?
Is everything everything? Are you feeling okay?

Did you sleep well last night? Tell me, love, did you dream?
I did and I loved it – I’m up to research what it means.

Do you ever do that? Research your dream for a dimensional reveal?
Or when you dream something vivid do you blame your last meal?

Either way, good morning goodness. I’m so glad that we’ve made it this far.
I have a shoot this morning – my favorite healing arts star.

What? You don’t know of one? You implore the help of MD’s when you’re in pain?
Please don’t limit your access to good health – call a masseuse, a therapist, a saint!
For God sake, do not lower your quality of life because of pain.

During my documentary research, I learned much about the benefit of humans moving.
This morning via movement, I am up, showing-and-proving.’ What are you doing?

Do something for thyself on this day.
No other day is promised – please have it your way.

When was the last time that you went outside and played?
Thursday’s are verse-days; express your inner-kid today.

Me? I’m due on set in a few short minutes.
Experience is mine for the making; I’m in it to win it.

I’m making egg-scramble for breakfast: sausage-egg-potato.
I’d love to feed you, as well; consume breakfast before you go.

Rise and sip this jo that I have prepared for you.
Let me bid you a productive day filled with good energy through and through.

Whether or not you have to work the weekend, get jitted up, anyway – to win,

and Thursdays are my day’s to shape the week’s end. It’s always good to start it out with a friend.

I appreciate you in my morning spend.

Feeling 19

GIRL WOMAN NEXT DOOR

It’s where I am right now, in my life. It’s what I’m doing.
It’s how I’m living and how I’m… chewing.

Did you think I was going to say something lewder?
I’m still on stealth game — objectives shrewder.

I feel limitless. I feel bliss.
I feel like a few years prior, that I really miss.

You know?
Maybe yes? Maybe no?
Regardless of your age, let your youth show.

Who are you and what do you want?
Is life making you proud; your chief flaunt?

Either way, act how you feel.
Life is short; with thyself keep it real.

Let today have a limitless appeal – get your groove on.
I’m peeping the dude in front of me; deep melanin and strong.

Feel’s like a Friday kinfolk. I ain’t ‘gone lie.
If I can put in on a promising evening – I’m ‘gone try.

What about you?
Braces are tight and effect my chew.

Speaking of, I’ve been in braces for more than a year.
I’m smiling shiny chrome from ear to ear

and I like.
It has fashioned for me, a more perfect bite.

Not for the sake of conceit,
but to stop the grinding of my teeth.

Yes — I have TMJD and it hurts like heck.
Right now I’m in braces with pains in my neck.

It’s not solely the braces at play,
it’s a disorder at my good ol’ TMJ.

If you don’t have TMJD, don’t get it and relax your shoulders.
TMJ is facilitated by necessary fascia that has grown colder.

Crazy science stuff, still very true.
Fascia build-up is fixed but can move.

Did you know that?
My current documentary is about a ‘healing arts cat.’

Because of her handy work; moving the fascia in my face and neck
I was able to avoid cashing that double-jaw surgery check

last year. Remember that piece about TMJ = Teeth Mouth Jive?
TMJ disorder has a grip that is all-the-live,
though with the help of my LMT, I have more than thrived.
Eh fam, it’s truly good to be in control and alive.

How are you feeling? Me? I’m Feeling 19.
Good morning beloved. I’m glad to have you on the scene.

How about one of these?

Approach this day stressless and at ease.

Let’s breathe. This week is going to be a great one – I see.

Good morning beloved: I love my life.
All isn’t sunshine neither is it all strife.

My daily schedule fluctuates between leisure and unbelievably busy.
If it weren’t for my production assistants I’d be overbooked and dizzy .

I am grateful this morning, o’ beloved. Do scoot-in closer towards me.
Let’s stay in bed until 15 after 3. Let’s lie still for a couple of beats.

Let’s explore the autonomy to breathe.
Inhale, exhale, then repeat.

Let’s do a couple million reps.
Let’s stay oxygenated to avoid low depths.

All will be well.

What have you got up today? Thank God that Friday is here.
Summer vacations are in full effect, but I don’t hear the familial cheer.

Where are all of the road trip announcements and blogs chronicling such?
I know that you’re out and about because your yielding Neilson no love.

Film used to push-and-shove trailers during primetime, to get your attention.
Today, we are lucky if a new film gets a strong 15-second mention.

Television network stations fight the digital streaming folk for life.
Each one looking towards the future for better content and fresher insight.

Oh Me, Oh My! It’s so good to be alive.
For herein the dim, I’m a canary with pure oxygen who writes.

Things will improve and broadcast entertainment will, again soar sharp.

of what is capable of them and what good they can do…

they will not know.

For those who often wake-up and haven’t a clue as to what they will do once they rise,
consider approaching the day with meditation and prayer; give thanks for your breath and your eyes.

Rise happy in the face of and give thanks to the creator for life.
As hard as you slept last night, He never left your side.

Good morning beloved’s, we indeed have our work cut out for us today,

Glad to start my day with thee, it’s gonna be great – because I prayed.

Oui Oui Oui – SHORTS TV

In Comedy, Communication, Griot, Movies, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on June 7, 2019 at 12:13 am

I love SHORTS…

For 14 hours a day and at least 5 days a week, I am watching short films. I keep the television in my office on DirecTV’s SHORTSTV channel. It’s a way for me to feel surrounded by my peers, be entertained, educated, and inspired. It’s also a great way to stay motivated on my own scriptwriting journey. I can’t watch a movie without counting shot types and how they are composed to convey the story. It’s a science, for sure.

Inference. My creative mind immediately goes to what happened before the film started and what could possibly happen after it has ended. I dabble in inference daily. It’s the stuff new creations are made of; it’s also the stuff that encourages me to stay on the path that I am pursuing. I’ve successfully completed several collegiate projects where I had to create characters and scripts for popular films and narrative series. I’ll admit that it can be tough to watch a film that you did not write, comprehend the characters, fall in love with the storyline and substories and create breath to strengthen and sustain its life — but I’m into it. Call me a script empath.

filmstrip-divider

It’s been a very long minute
since you and I have talked short films; all up in it.

So let’s begin it:


BITTER is an 11-minute film about a middle-aged man who finds himself shocked by his 21-year old daughters taste in men.
A well-seasoned rooster seems to be pecking his offspring-hen.

This is a comedy with a real gut feeling spin.
I think you’ll enjoy its ironic end.

FATIMA is a 29-minute short film
about the reality of an immigrant living in the dim.

The dim would be an “illegal status;” always over-the-shoulder looking.
For the good that Fatima was doing on her job, it resulted in police booking.

Though all could have cleared; resolved by proof of videotape
yielding one person with positional power to free or shoot to hell her fate.

That’s about all that I’m going to say about that. You should consider giving it a look.
Although revealing it could be quite healing. The ending was unexpected; I was shook.
.

IMPERVIA is a work of science fiction that breaths life into an impoverished family of droids. Yes – I said droids, as in androids; think ALIEN with Sigourney Weaver, remember the android on board? Formed like so, an impoverished family of droids is sought out by the governing authority to make some pretty conclusive decisions about the family’s habitation. My good friend and novelist, Marc Abbott stars as the protagonist and head of the droid family. His character is responsible for charting a vision that will yield them a taste of freedom; a way to re-enter society functionally under a system that currently deems them not worthy:

Last but not least – in fact, this one is quite the short thrill,
Christopher T. Wood reigns in this film titled: TIME TO KILL.

Not to be confused with Samuel L Jackson’s piece, A TIME TO KILL.
This short film is comical before getting comparably real:

filmstrip-divider

Unfortunately, BITTER and TIME TO KILL are the only two
that I could find complete short film views for you.

As for FATIMA and IMPERVIA, if you want to catch them completely,
the best suggestion I have for you is to tune into SHORTS TV.

Me? I’m amped up today because it’s Friday and I’ve got script composition on my mind,
I’m Qui
and between you and me, I’m glad to know VCR’s did not take with them the power to REWIND.

Me, you and ShortsTV — we’re going to be just fine.
Us and this literary light o’ mine…

RIGHT NOW

Mustafa_Cymba_sunrise.gif

At current — this Thursday is parched
with the thirst of the public’s revelation – at its start.

Right Now that’s what’s going on.
No more singing the “blind clarity” song.

Did you see via Robert Mueller’s lenses?
Words were legal but there were no minces.

He said, in the report ‘that if he could, he would
have told us that the prez was innocent and that all was good

then he said, ‘but the report didn’t state that,’
because that wouldn’t have been a revelation of the facts.

What you say? And um, do what?
Right Now the White House’s lawn looks rough.

So far, so far
[we are] from the word salad of Barr.

Hardy-har-har? I don’t think it’s funny at all.
For the low-hanging “i-word” – many are mid-call.

The speaker of the house resides in a decision-stall. It isn’t easy.
She still remembers what happened to the Repubs when they impeached Bill Cleezy.

Bill Clinton was impeached for lying — one time.
Congress needs to step up and put it all on the line.

Don’t be scared this time.
Follow the constitutions etch and all will be fine.

I will be honest with you,
I’m a bit on-the-fence too.

‘Not overly optimistic about pulling anyone out of position.
I’d rather see our current course just cease;
put the country’s degradation in remission.

That’s all.
To take a breath; an intellectual stall

like the speaker of the house.
Wisdom at the highest levels is still allowed.

Yes-boom pow!
Let’s all reassess, Right Now.

Be not hasty in making any moves.
Adhere to the constitution for leading grooves.

At current — this Thursday is looking kind of parched
with thirst from the public’s inquisition at its start.

Now what? And how now brown cow?
I’m Qui
Chronicling a change in the air and it’s happening Right Now.

Getting Serious. Are we?

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News on May 9, 2019 at 5:34 am

Vin Diesel_Thandie Newtgon.gifAre we finally getting serious about what’s before us, o’ kinfolk?
Are we willing to look at ourselves and what was exactly behind our vote?

Was it the will of the American people or another actor with a self-serving sub storyline?
It doesn’t matter, the Constitution is our fundamental batter and it shan’t be tainted with old wine.

In my heart, I believe in Congress and pray that our union will be fine.
America is the kid with the best -ish. what’s with the old wine?

Ain’t nobody too drunk to read a report or a book with more than 400 pages.
Careful not to move too quick, there are checks, constitutional balances, and stages.

Chairman Nadler said we are in a Constitutional crisis and no one was surprised.
We are a people by the people and by our votes, we can set things right.

I’m not loyal to any party on the left or to the right – I am a lover of you.
I believe that our collective unity will be the strength that gets us through.

Love is the super glue.

I want our tomorrow to be okay.
I want our children to live like we did; full of vibrancy and play.

We can do this if we choose to stay the founding fathers’ course.
We can walk and chew gum – let’s heal the Earth and cool her core.

Let’s evolve to being a more compassionate sport. I know what you must be thinking,
that I’m a little high in my spirits because “the dumb train” is sinking.

No. I’m really not. But to say that I don’t feel the excitement in the air —
is to be lying to you. I feel a feeling of “We’re almost there…”

Broaching the climatic point where we find out many truths
that just may pan out to look like the discourse wasn’t started by me or you.

When provoked – our first nature to push back.
A third party injected hostility and the country’s unity showed a crack.
I’m not too concerned with that. We’ve been divided before  — we’ll get it back.

Congress will do its job before citizens, by and large, grow delirious.
I’m just glad that we can all agree, it is indeed time to get serious.

Good morning sweetheart and how do you do?
I’m Qui
it’s Thursday morning and I’m still into you.

Are you ready?

Let’s DO IT.

THE INTRUDER

In Communication, Movies, Networking, News, Video on May 6, 2019 at 5:58 am

So Friday night my guy & I had a double date with Scott (Michael Ealy) & Annie, (Megan Good) and it was good.

We enjoyed a reel cookie cutter layout from Roger Corman‘s old hood.

I’m into seeing movies and move-me’s; God bless production movers –
It was good to see new chemistry in the old lab of The INTRUDER.

I’m not really sure about the initial intentions of reviving this piece –
It wasn’t about innovation, resolution or love’s slow release.

It was a pretty decent remake of the same-named film
Dennis Quaid did great as Charlie, following William Shatner’s hem

as a disturbed white man whose pissed at the presence of black neighbors.
In 1962 the film highlighted discourse and sewing divisive vapors.

In this years THE INTRUDER Dennis played a disturbed guy
with only a remnant of racism coursing through his spine.

He was the seller of a big and beautiful countryside home surrounded by lushes of green.
He wanted to sell it and still dwell in it — an attached squatter if you know what I mean.

Among creeping around the new couples home without them knowing,
Charlie was making plans to assume Scott’s life and duly start sewing

“home seeds” with Scott’s beloved Annie;
thinking he and she could start a family.

There was mayhem and while all scenarios clicked,
I was sad to see Scott repeatedly get his butt kicked

so many times from Charlie; but Scott was a desk nerd.
Annie drew strength from a pan and her fist 
revealing survival skills when she s’kerd.

Deon Taylor is the director and producer of this remake
he is listed as the same in Traffik‘s sobering pace.

Remember that?
Paula Patton delivers like ‘Turner & Pat.’

Today’s Intruder film wasn’t hung up on race
but the face of a man with disturbing headspace.

Charlie’s daughter is all that he has in this world to co-sign his life,
but not even she wants anything to do with him because he took her mother’s life.

There were moments in the theater that I jumped out of unexpected fright.
It may be a remake film, but it’s perfect for a little date night.

There were hairy moments where I preferred to cuddle a little tight…
Like when Charlie was peeping-in on Annie in the shower one night.

I’m sure my guy enjoyed the double play:
him watching Megan in the shower and me being okay.

Annie’s body was a total fit slay. I admired the silhouette.
I’m thinking Charlie did too, he seemed to relish in her being wet.

Sex made a couple of debuts atop of the young couples sheets.
My guy and I were watching via Charlie’s secret peep.

It was line crossing  – still, actors Megan and Michael were flossing in this flick.
The legendary Dennis Quaid contorted his craft to display the encroaching counter-dick.

I’m sure the role won’t stick. Dennis is far too likable.
Catch him on the move in his string new of commercials.

Plus, you won’t be expecting the pivotal wording at the films end,
I’m Qui
and I figured I knew much about the script before going in…

I am pleased to concede that I didn’t.
Deon is pretty good at directing, producing and revealing the hidden.
