Note To Self – Work on Self.

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News on March 30, 2020 at 6:59 am

i-love-you-sticky-note.gifGood morning kinfolk, are you up just yet?
I am hopeful that beauty will evolve out of this mess.

This is just a human test. A doozy of a test, I will say.
And we are not without an EMO; we can always pray.

New York is in a grip. I am watching them closely during Covid19.
The tally is still rising and Science is fighting the scene.

I have loved ones in NY and I am praying incessantly.
They are on house-lock because it is necessary.

I have family in various places and I am concerned about them all.
I text and make video’s because I’ve not ever been much for a call.

Could you use a hug? I could greatly benefit from hugging you.
I’m naturally a homebody and I miss watching your view.

kids-hug

I’m a writer, an observer; I dig your to and fro.
In the wake of coronavirus folk ain’t got nowhere to go.

I’m glad that we’re being mindful. For sure.
Stay in, stay clean and pray for a cure.

Note to self: Work on self.  Let this be our word today.
I need you to remain optimistic and healthy so we can resume our play

on another day. We can do it; remain young.
Let’s try a new hobby for sustenance and fun.

How about sewing? How about science?
We need PPE for the medical community‘s compliance.

I can sew by hand and by sewing machine.
I’m over here trying to sort out things.

child-of-GodI am woman of science; I’ve been up researching today.
I am a child of God, I research while I pray. 🙂

Note to self: Love on your neighbors. Yield social support.
I’m Qui
Glad to reconvene with thee, unity is a viable force.

Where am I needed? Where do I go?
I’ll start with talking to God from my bedroom, yo.

Note to self that I’m passing on to you:
GOD is the fastest route to pull us through.

We need ACTION.

 

Hello Dolly

Charlie-Brown_Linus-dance.gif

Let’s jam on one accord. The W.H.O.

If you’re watching the news, I beg of thee to turn it off.
There’s illness in the message; you’ll mess around and get a cough.

Psychosomatics, baby. If you receive it in your mind then it will manifest in your body.
Turn off the news and refocus your views on you and the fam. Hello, Dolly.

Lodi-dodi. Look at you.
It’s been a coons age since you focused on the familial view.

Are you single with no children? Do you live by yourself?
Consider it a blessing; no co-piloting on your health.

Are you all boo’ed up? Do you have kids?
That’s even better – you’ve got pending biz!

No kicking back for you. Are still wiping the house down?
We can beat this virus. Let’s wear the disinfectant crown.

You can make your own bleach surface wipes, even produce your own lemon scent hand sanitzier.
We are daughters of CJ Walker and son’s of Ben Franklin; invention and evolution remain exciters.

Be encouraged by the world demand and by this writerI am telling you child,
If you have sewing talent your barter-capacity is about to go wild.

I compare the feel of today to about 1000 years ago.
A bit archaic, folks don’t want to say it – but we’re in the dark ages, yo.

Still, we don’t have to get lost in it.
Our species is in trouble; let’s buckle down and defend it.

DON’T GIVE UP, soldier! I need you to hold the line.
Keep the fam inside of the house and all will be fine.

We are not feline cats, our life availability is not 9,
I’m Qui
Hello Dolly, today is a great day to call on Jesus to bind.

Wash your hands, wear gloves and masks if you must go out.
Survival of the fittest is what our species is about.

WHO are YOU?
Ever heard of W.H.O.?

Dont Touch Our ACA Protection

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News on March 23, 2020 at 12:07 pm

.
What is going on American people?
You’re in a poo-house with a real short steeple.

Get out of the shitter!
Fight for the ACA. Don’t be a quitter.

The current administration is in court trying to take it away,
like we are all quarantining because today is a healthier day.

2-sisters-appauledWhat the? Get the ____ out of here with that BS heap.
Take from God’s kids and your own good health will cease!

Do you think that the universe doesn’t read ol’ QE?
Rest assured if you kill the ACA – your own creator, you’ll meet.

I may not get sick and fatally succumb to COVID19 —
but the world would be ridded of our beloved senior class scene.

The members of our current administration are older in age.
Back in the day we considered seniors to represent a wiser life phase.

This admin cabinet proves  – that such is not the case.
Why is the admin trying to repeal the ACA?

Too many folk are sick today.
Too many cannot afford their insurance rates.

Perhaps they can lean back on the ACA?
So why is the admin in court today?

They are working towards allowing you to sneeze, cough, and whittle
in your home with fam around or alone — but no ride to the hospital.

This has got to stop.
The American head-count is on a steep drop.

Have you lost someone to the virus? Are you, yourself not well?
The folk trying to take away your healthcare have personal invites to hell.

Their time on Earth is on a “slowdown” spell. It’s sad for me to fathom and to say.
I’m Qui
And God don’t like ugly. Hands off the ACA.

Dear Administration: Karma is real.
When you get sick, you, too will want to heal.

Be a LIFE SPORT
and abandon court.

Lets Get Clean and Blow Off Some Steam

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on March 20, 2020 at 8:09 am

French-maid.jpgGood morning beloved. How are you today?
I’ve been up since 3 on my sanitizing prey.

We collectively don’t know as much as we’d like to gleam
about that dominating virus: COVID 19.

As a domestic science researching hustler,
I’m sharing with you the W.H.O.’s list of Myth Busters.

Still, what we do know is that the configuration of this thing
seems to recoil and retreat from heat.

So…
Let’s get to steaming, yo! 🙂

Unfortunately, steam is not the answer and neither is direct heat.
Ok. Let’s research this more while sipping hot tea.

Of course hot beverages are no cure or solution,
but it might deliver COVID 19 some type of contusion.

Just do what you can to slow this mother down.
Let’s become clean freaks and blow some steam around.

If it is true that the virus has a tendency to live airborne…
Where’s the harm in steaming up the home this morn?

the-clean-home-crown_mug

Own it.

I’ve been up since 3am wiping my entire domicile down.
I don’t have the virus answer, but I do wear the CLEAN CROWN.

Ow!,” in my James Brown voice. “Get down!” And then get back up quickly.
Unless you’re steam cleaning the floors to keep folks from getting sickly.

In that case — that is what’s up!
We don’t have to be scientist to do as much.

So, good morning beloved. It’s time for you to get up
and steam up the home with more than fear-bluff.

Do take all measures to protect your fam
and please remain compassionate to your fellow man.

Do not sit around and succumb to jack!
Pray to God for wisdom to keep your health in tact.

Then wash your hands. Wash them again. I am re-washing my own.
I’m Qui
Glad to wake up with thee to steam things up and clean our homes.

It’s not the COVID19 cure, but  it certainly isn’t wrong.

Reliance on Science

In Communication, education, Griot, Networking, News, Video on March 18, 2020 at 1:06 pm
weird-science.gif

NEEDED.

Good afternoon kinfolk. What’s good in the hood today?
I’ve been on a researching binge of what scientist have to say

about this pandemic that is sweeping the world by far.
It’s being compared to yesterday’s strains of SAR.

I woke at 8am this morning to an incredible read
that a family member sent to me; an educational seed.

It was from STATNews.com and therein it conveys
that Scientists are in ploy; good minds are at play.

Still, for the masses, they have nothing good to say.
They are working from behind the eight ball to restore the day.

Turns out that W.H.O. did not offer our country a CORONA Test and we didn’t really say NO.
We have always staffed the biggest and brightest minds in science – per history shows.

So when initially we were notified of a test prototype –
America just responded with its usual rigmarole ‘hype:

no-thanks_meme.gif

Feeling nostalgic about our capacity to lead.

But this administration has laid off CDC scientists; they’re in the unemployment line.
I am over here on my domestic research looking for a viral bind;

a natural substance that can render protection.
I’m also praying for a new W.H. resident after the election.

We need leadership. We need healthcare solutions. We need the V.A.
We need to adopt an INDIVIDUAL’s MISSION to help ourselves every day.

It’s okay if you want to look at New York as Governor Cuomo leads the way.
He doesn’t have a blueprint on COVID19, but his wisdom is at play.

Washing our hands is a good way to avoid spread, as well as not visiting your friends.
If we all take a minute to cut-it-out, lives won’t unnecessarily end.

This is something that we all can comprehend.
Go on and hit up Skype and Facetime again.

Yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day and I drank myself silly.
I was in the company of a few friends; well kind of, but not really.

I’m about science and safety so —
I partied unbridled and solo on video. 😛

What did you do, yo? Please don’t tell me that you —
were locked in the house with a pursed mouth watching the news.

Were you? That’s what’s up. I applaud you for thinking “safety first.”
Me, too, man, but I couldn’t save the plan of not quenching the calendar-day thirst.

Enough of that. It’s HUMP DAY and I’m talking much,
because I miss your presence and the human touch.

I am glad that I have this blog page to write
and connect with you on life-saving insight.

So, if you are home and have a minute to “knowledge add,”
I implore you to go on over and read the article and comments on STAT.

Do it and be wise.
Do it to save lives.

Let’s do what we can to stop this virus, by comedy-hook or lab crook,
I’m Qui
Be encouraged to keep living and take your cue from The Brooks:

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.

NEWS PURUSE – Chatting It Up

In #SeveralLayersDeep, Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement on February 19, 2020 at 4:30 am

NEWS PERUSE_GossipNow that I’m watching the race a little closer – I turned the television back on
to see Mike Bloomberg on ‘The Bloom’ and his campaign growing strong.

I’m a forgiving lady, still I wanted to know more
about Mr.Bloomberg, his word, and his Mayoral score.

So I called up my cousins ex sister-in-law in Brooklyn, to ask her to divvy
me the goods on when Bloomberg governed over New York City.

Y’all, it wasn’t pretty and only  because I really do care
I promised her I’d Griot the info and drop it here, to share.

She said quite a bit and I wasn’t recording the call,
but thanks to ROLLING STONE Mag, this piece says it all:

Bloomberg-and-Black-Folk
https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/political-commentary/mike-bloomberg-audio-recordings-stop-frisk-trump-951302/

It was eye-opening among other things.
He, too, prefers to govern like a king:

The New Yorker remarked that when Bloomberg was Mayor she pushed through jeers;
the weight of not getting a raise from her city employed-gig for about 8-years.

Uh-uhn. I don’t think I’m ready to swallow. I am not interested in another play date.
I do not want to babysit another rich guy in the White House; I’m looking forward to the debates.

The ladies and I are hooking up this eve. We will be watching.
We’re keeping score cards on who and what’s clocking.

There are several campaigns that we are watching; we’re not interested in lies.
We know Bloomberg is a target-market genius – we’ll look past his eyes.

We’ll be checking out Elizabeth Warren, Bernie and Amy Klobachar, too.
We are black and have love for Biden. It’s the patriotic thing to do.

go-vote.gifWe absolutely love this country.
To congregate over anything but – is to be funky.

And this ain’t a time to be funky.
The DNC needs funding but all money ain’t good money, honey.

Not if it costs you: your peace.
I’m just chatting-it-up with you for a little community release.

Is that okay?
I think communing with you is a great way
to start my day.

What are your thoughts? I’d love to hear your say.
Especially after tonight’s debate.

Life is a ballgame – are we ready to play?
The world is in sitting in the bleachers to hear your convey.

Let us show up and create a good story to tell,
I’m Qui
Chatting in my community about which candidate sells.

Tonight, be informed.

yellow-brick-road_daisy-animated-gif-.gifNevada, Nevada we see your intent.
You guys hit early voting, like stellar tenants paying rent.

Thank you for choosing to civilly vent through diligence.
People are waking early to stand in line and change events.

Last night we heard a rumored mention
stating BLOOMBERG may be looking at CLINTON

and the world got a shade brighter.
It energized my solarplexus; I’m a writer.

Could Bloomberg jump to the front as an exciter?
Clinton is no shabby choice; she’s a fighter.

I say “today is a wiser day… go for it.”
The contest is rough but Bloom-Hill can score it!

Visit a beautiful park in NYC

The ladies and I were cocktail’ing when we heard the news.
Cell phones lit up because Bloomberg is a numbers dude

and we wanted to weigh-in with our views.
So, weigh-in we did. We like the risk hue.

Nevada, Nevada: this weekend is about you.
Thank you for your insistence in following through.

This could be the beginning – of turmoil ending.

The world is watching you. beating-heart
May the Sabbath usher in new truths

about who we are as a people.

Key BLACK HISTORY: Multi Media PLAYERS II

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on February 12, 2020 at 8:19 am

TUNE IN TONIGHT @ 8/7c

.

Multi Media – when defined as an adjective (of art, education, etc.) refers to using more than one medium of expression or communication. “A multimedia art form”
As a noun the term is defined as the use of a variety of artistic or communicative media.

Which is the perfect description, (in some aspect) of every PLAYER that we highlight in this piece. What do yo know about:

The Pisces and chameleon JORDAN PEELE?
I first took notice of him during a show titled Key and Peele,
and then he busted the box offices with creative & reflective reel.

GET OUT and US are digital releases that I own.
Jordan Peele is a Multi Media Player and one who’s quite strong.

I’d like to get him on the phone and bring up Issa Rae;
talk about collaborating and then call Issa on three way.

ISSA RAE, Issa Rae. Girl what do you say?
You are no longer INSECURE in any way

and it’s a good look.
Ass is getting fat,” cause your content hooks.

I am paying attention, I am learning and I laugh.
I’ll see you at this weekend’s opening of:  THE PHOTOGRAPH.

Though tonight belongs to – la bella, AVA DUVERNAY 
as she broaches Day 2 of: CHERISH THE DAY.

It is Key that we continue to understand our BLACK HISTORY.
Ava takes on Black Love because it shouldn’t remain a mystery.
#Anthology

The view is kissing me. Let it kiss you back.
Today’s topic is historic on the legacy that is Black,

and not only that, but the production cast and crew is Full Gender Parody.
That means 50/50 on the sexes; an even-playing-field is always key.

I need you and you need me.
Give it up for Ava and opportunity.

The world is changing and we should all strive to be stronger and leaner.
The views are showing up more true, like those seen in GRASS IS GREENER.

Have you seen her? The documentary that claims —
there’s been a miscomprehension on the necessity of Mary Jane.

FAB5FREDDY is no newbie to Multi-Media; he’s long been a reel player.
So, when it came to documenting weed? Fab5 took the lead as ‘the slayer.’

Nothing wrong with it.
I’m sure he researched the foliage before he ‘hit it.’ 😛

Still, he did it! He brought the topic to the forefront.
The documentary is blunt and yields an intellectual punt:

You don’t have to be a smoker to be concerned
about the legacy of a whole race of people being burned.

So many African Americans are still currently serving jail time,
behind a blunt on a roach clip from cirque 1969…

Or something like that.
There’s a legacy rotation on the puff-puff pass

in my community.
Like Native Americans – weed invokes unity.

The law has decided to let it be.
America’s GREEN LAWS are making history.

Let’s keep it up; lay good intentions like brick layers
and do it in plain site – like these Multi Media Players.

The children are watching us, so is the rest of the world.
I’m glad to be GENDER PARODY; highlighting boys and girls.

I’ve taken my cue from Ava and the rest,
I’m Qui
reflecting BLACK HISTORY – it’s me at my best.

Are you watching? Are you clocking?

Key Black History_Multi Media Players-1.gifI have a feeling this title will be a reoccurring one
because being a Multi Media Player is so much fun. So, let’s start with:

ANGELA BASSETT
She knows only to smash it!
Have you ever seen a show with her in it
and she didn’t win it?

BEYONCE is always about an intentional slay.
Learn the rules, and get in Formation if you want to play!

SHONDA RHIMES is a series network Dime.
Holding audiences captive is her M.O. shine.

QUI is WHO keeps
the Griot beat
and yields sublime rhymes
that chronicle our times.

OPRAH enhances the view inside of our homes
via the many positive morale shows on OWN.

She mastered adolescent success and transcended it to grown.
Kicking it with JADA PINKETT-SMITH is to listen strong.

She’s got a Podcast Show titled RED TABLE TALK.
She is a woman of will and she walks the walk.

Introducing Ms. SYLEENA JOHNSON – to those who don’t already know.
She’s new to me via  TV ONE’s SISTER CIRCLE show.

She is one of four hosts. Please tell me that you’ve seen it?
Once I tuned in, I realized just how much I mean it…

to support them.
Their union of love needs no alteration or hem.

On a recent episode I became a Syleena fan –
when I heard her new joint titled, WOMAN:

These are just a few skill capacity slayers
that I’m proud to list as Multi Media Players.

What about you?
What’s that thing that you do –
that you are into?

It’s because of you that each player get’s any play.
