420-holidayGood evening Munchie! 🙂 I’m here to divvy the sticky skinny
of the goods in Arizona on this day of 420.

Gimme! Gimme that tincture in a medicinal frame…
I could use it for this maxillofacial pain.

Despite Marijuana not being legal in all 50 states
Seems citizens support legalizing it– but it’s too little too late.

mmj-tincture.jpgOf states that are bold enough to put it on the ticket
The opposition to shut it down – comes in the thicket.

Personally I think law makers who voted it down smoke pot – the most.
And I think the smokers who voted it down don’t deserve to smoke no ‘mo.

Yes!! There is no such thing as a conservative pot smoker
But let them tell it – they’re true old school stoners; relic tokers.

They hail it “a gift from God; an all natural intimate sport.”
Q: So if you enjoy it so much, what did you vote it down for?

Medical card numbers soar, as the masses realize
You don’t have to take RX meds to pain disguise.

Knowledge is on the rise. The more I read, the more I score plenty.
Knowledge is in abundance today on this 420:

MMJ Legal States
Qualifying Medical Issues
What to do next?

The time, here in Arizona is 4:20 on the dot,
I’m Qui,
Elevated near the mountains – down below, it’s a little too hot.

Sitting to the left? What have you got?

Aw man! Brilliant LAUGHTER has left the land

My GOTO BUDDY whenever I felt ‘laugh thirsty”
Has crossed over today: RIP Charlie Murphy.

I’m truly sad for the family, myself and the population masses
Who won’t have another Charlie joke to lift us up off of our mundane asses.

The humorous mic: he passes it to those that will come behind him
Who’ll posses the light to laugh at life and flip a smile at obvious grim.

Gosh I’m gonna miss him. For Charlie Murphy
I’ve always had MAD LOVE,
I’m Qui
Chopping it up with thee, ’cause I’m in the mood for a group )))HUG(((.

NEWS PERUSE – Airline Jet Fuel

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on April 12, 2017 at 6:46 am

Knotted Up Travel…

Yes-yes! Good morning good kinsmen, I pray that everyone is fine.
I want to talk a little bit about the bad customer service at United Airlines.

I’m no bandwagon jumper, I am, however, an opportunist of writes
and my New Years trip to New York this year – was partly facilitated by one of their flights.

And I promise to God I am not lying, but I told my dear high school beau
That our purchasing 2 tickets and given no designated seats was a big fat no-no.

Their flight destination board was shotty and they had the rudest flight crew staff.
I wanted to write of it earlier, but it was nothing at which to uplift you with or laugh.

I told my dear beau, if there’s an opportunity to fly United Airlines again? I’ll forgo.
He didn’t care for their protocol and was too willing to let thier lack luster display go.

.

.

Unfortunately post seeing UA‘s new “customer dragging video,” I am convinced that they don’t care — even a little
for our passenger experience more than they do that we provide the funding in the middle.

The trip was more important for their 4-crew members that needed the seats of paid patrons.
It’s no wonder their seating was met with boo’s and statements that proved they were being ‘hated on.’

Again – I didn’t share my 2017 New Years Eve connecting flight woes with you,
because UPLIFTING news is what I’m into and bad news makes tasteless juice.

However, in light of what happened last weekend, I thought I’d better confirm
CEO Munoz is horrible with customer service; t’was from him, employees have learned.

Jimmy Kimmel gives an inside look into United Airlines Marketing:

WHAT IN THE WORLD is going on?
United Airlines… you aren’t looking too strong.

Your marketing team will have trouble spinning
the fact that you apologized only to the fact that you were inconvenienced in winning.

In fact Munoz said, and I quote:
united-airlines-apology-april-2017.jpg

Ooo wee kinfolk, something has gone terribly wrong
for them to think they can treat patrons like so and we dance to this song.

Well, I’m certain I won’t dance with them. I won’t play along and be smiley.
I dropped United Airlines quicker than the 58 advertisers that dropped O’Reilly.

O’Reilly and the other Bill, Mr. Cosby
seems to have had a pretty similar hobby.

Call it what you want – it sure looks the same.
Be it O’Reilly or Cosby — Bill is the name.

Good Lord! Deliver us from our exceptional selves.
Morals should count higher than the stack of wealth.

Munoz has apologized a third time without dismissive intent to “word clown.”
Or perhaps his apology was in someway tied to the stock prices that were going down.

If you’re a United Airline stock holder or spouse/lover,
no worries on the stock, before the close they duly recovered.

human-kindness.jpgIf it weren’t for the money, I don’t think change or an apology would have come.
I think Oscar Munoz thought the majority of America wouldn’t add up his careless sums.

My beau is a Mathmetician, we did the math rather quick.
The fact that we’re talking about dragging customer service says the country is sick.

There’s a lot of coughing but no vomit or blood (yet) gushin’,
still our country’s acting a little funky
and might need some sort of Robitussin.

You don’t have to believe me, in fact you can outright refuse,
go out and grab a pussy and you could make the next NEWS PERUSE. 🙂

It’s up to you. I’m just dropping heightened information
something like The Cat in The Hat, tho in Griot formation.

Good morning kinsmen, it’s mid week and I’m on my mid-week grind,
I’m Qui
I always love kicking it with thee on any relative NEWS PERUSE find.

A WISE SAY: Yesterday, The other day and Today

Seeds of wisdom

The bed you make may be your own.
Consequences matter from a kid all the way to grown.

Be quick to apologize if you’re the one in the wrong
and always pay royalties if you use other artists words to make songs.

That’s just good advice 
if you want to avoid a drama-filled life.

Me? I’m doing quite alright. I’m always digging the wiser say.
Anytime that you may find  me “quiet to the riot” I’m usually in Proverbs phase:

proverbs15-31

To myself and others, I always say:
Pick and choose your battles and be clear about your plight.
Don’t throw your weight around if you’re not prepared to fight.

Aggression is aggression, there is no such thing as a “slight.”
Again, Don’t throw your weight around if you’re not prepared to fight.

img_4439A WISE SAY: Yesterday, The other day and Today
Is nothing more, really – than COMMON SENSE in your face.

If you’re in the car but not behind the wheel – I suggest you pray.
Especially if the drivers skill are comparable to the roller coaster: Run Away.

As in old, herky-jerky, extreme sharp turns and full of thwarted thrills.
Click the roller coaster link; the Run Away is real. 🙂

Remember that a roller coaster ride is limited to its designated tracks,
walk your journey, know your road, don’t be side-tracked by this and that.

The world stage is too big for any type of menial tit for tat,
so if you have issue with your brother — please leave it at that.

Do not go global, do not take to Twitter or Facebook.
Take it God and maybe your best friend, then jot it in a journal book.
Lock it up so that your counters don’t take a look.

That’s A WISE SAY: Yesterday, The other day and Today…
All of your thoughts need not be aired. Some – you can put away.

However, if you’re all about healing the world, what ails the people or unity on a whole,
Hit-up your girl, Qui. To me, that’s Project: GOLD. I’m always down to positively affect the soul.

Good morning to you, be on your wisest beat,
I’m Qui
On this griot 1-2-3 sewing wisdom in relative seeds.

Plant. Grow. Eat.
It makes sense.

Another Fine WEDNESDAY

In Communication, Griot, Movies, Networking, News, Self Improvement, Video on April 5, 2017 at 4:29 am

Greenleaf-cast-2017-season2And I’m feeling very much like 32
It’s SPRING time and I’m on the take –
not sure what on Earth I’m going to do

with this sunny side of me that is clearly showing.
I’m over here reading, writing, learning and knowing.

I’m soaking up information that I didn’t know yesterday.
The sapeosexual that I am, this research equates to play.

Hey-ey! It’s Wednesday baby and I’ve got a feeling of Dallas, TX in my hair.
I’m quite a few miles out of her radius’ frame but my attitude doesn’t care.

greenleaf_family.pngI’ve got K104 blasting through my speakers, via an app and bluetooth on my phone.
I’m rolling through the streets, I’m Phoenix-deep, but the DF-Dub is all in my dome.

Monday seems like it was just yesterday — yet it looks like the weekend’s about to begin.
We’re atop of the hump, fix your posture – no slump, It’s not Friday, but WEDNESDAY, again.

What’cha got up for today? Be it all sweet and no beef
for later tonight on channel OWN, you can indulge in some GREENLEAF.

Yes, honey child.
GREENLEAF is back – you know it’s gone be wild.

UNDERGROUND will backdoor this awesome show and still new at season 2’s begin.
Underground isn’t on channel OWN, but rather on WGN.

Go ahead and DVR them in. Both are pretty good company.
I’m just a writer, a dome exciter – these shows are like friends to me.
You ever talk back to the TV? 🙂

I do, and all of the time.
Sometimes it’s a flat comment – sometimes it’s a rhyme.

Today more of the same will be on shine, I’ll be nail-biting on bended knees,
I’m Qui
on Another Fine Wednesday, join me later on for familial reflections of you and me.

Artful Notation

Just yesterday as I was on my way, sashaying and being productively steady
I received an informative text from the international and domestically cool: Fab 5 Freddy.

Beyond saying,”Yo Qui! What’s up?,” and spitting a few more verses that made me think
he split my wig with info of his current gig when he shot me this WJLA link:

Two very different, yet influential international icons
collaborating in art of hip and historic cultural sums.

Mmm and yum. Y’all know how I feel about adding good and solid content.
It seems that their art and cultural collab has alas, been SMITHSONIAN sent.

The WILDSTYLE EXHIBITION is on display in Washington, DC as I speak.
The a fore interview was pretty telling as well, click PLAY and take a peek.

Good shows, good art and good love are like shots of caffeine to me,
I’m Qui
This Wednesday deserves a “Oui” for being so Fab and for tonights Greenleaf!

Laugh Lines

In Comedy, Communication, Networking, News, Qui Audio Byte on March 31, 2017 at 2:52 pm

Life can be serious and often, not so kind,
so when I can, I gracefully yield to making new Laugh Lines:

Two elderly women were out for a Sunday drive in a large car and both could barely see over the dashboard. As they were cruising along, they came to an intersection. The stoplight was red but they just went on through. The woman in the passenger seat thought to herself “I must be losing it, I could have sworn we just went through a red light”. After a few more minutes they came to another intersection and the light was red again, and again they went right through. This time the woman in the passenger seat was almost sure that the light had been red but was really concerned that she was losing it. She was getting nervous and decided to pay very close attention to the road and the next intersection to see what was going on. At the next intersection, sure enough, the light was definitely red and they went right through, and she turned to the other woman and said, “Mildred! Did you know we just ran through three red lights in a row? You could have killed us!” Mildred turned to her and said “Oh, am I driving?”

Flying like Harrison Ford
harrison-fordAn airplane pilot had had a particularly difficult flight and a rough landing. The airline had a policy which required the first officer to stand at the door while the passengers exited, smile and give them a “Thanks for riding Royal Airlines.” But, in light of his bad landing, the pilot had a hard time looking the passengers in the eye, thinking that someone would have a smart comment. Finally, everyone had gotten off except for this little old lady walking with a cane. She said, “Sonny, mind if I ask you a question?” “Why no, Ma’am,” replied the pilot,” “what is it?” The little old lady said, “Did we land or were we shot down?” 🙂

Never mind satellite news today – tomorrow it will ramp up more.
For now, dowse out “suspicion” with this next J/K score:

no-firesA lady was complaining to her husband about remodeling her kitchen. “You have been telling me you were going to get me new cabinets for ten years!” said the wife. “They are a luxury and the ones we have are fine.” the husband replied. The next day the wife goes to visit her mother for two weeks. When she returns she is overjoyed to see a brand new kitchen waiting for her. She was so thrilled that every night when the husband got home she would have his favorite meal on the table and after dinner she would rub his feet as he read the paper in the recliner. A couple of weeks later a neighbor came by for a visit. After admiring the new cabinets she says, “All of us were so glad that the fire your husband had while you were gone was confined to the Kitchen.”

The last joke has so many “issues with it,” that I don’t know where to begin…crazy-smileyface
Let’s just say I’m glad the husband scored and no other square footage was singed.

Aw. It’s okay to laugh every now and again… actually, as much as you can, Boo.

Waking Up to Timothy Snyder

In Book, Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on March 29, 2017 at 7:05 am

waking-up-is-keyI’ve been with my guy for more than two decades, (since high school), so waking up to Timothy Snyder was something new to me. Good thing my guy isn’t the jealous type, because Timothy has a book that has caught my attention and demands ‘curl-up-in-the-bed’ time, so I’ve been ‘curled-up.’

How did I meet Timothy? Bill Maher introduced me to him last Friday night (I’m quick! 🤗) – he was a panel guest. Did you see the show? It was enlightening and heavy all at the same time. And by “heavy” I mean in yielding brain lobe capacity. You know THAT works for me. Oui! Meet Timothy:

timothy-snyder-tyranny

I met Timothy on REAL TIME with Bill Maher on Friday
He was discussing historical tyranny; education always equals a high day.

I kept the channel locked. Here is where I wanted to play,
it was pretty good stuff. Here’s a 8-min vid of Tim’s informative say:

Heyyyy! That’s whats up. Did you get that?
Aw, you know me. I’m a knowledge hungry she,
and yes — I definitely dug that.

It was so good, so proven and so deep…
I think I’ll transcribe the conversation for “readers on ‘the creep.'”

But that will take a little bit of time.
Peep YouTube – now, before they kill the line.

Me? On this Wednesday morning, I’m feeling fine.
I’ve got a few hours pending before tackling my grind.

I’m hitting you up, because you’ve been on my mind.
Good morning baby. I’m on my lobe-lift grind.

The day is early and knowledge is a good serve anytime!
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, I’m content with spooning this book of mine.

I’m imploring you to expand your mind and to read a book today
Protect yourself, health and wealth from the tyrannical methods of yesterday!
DO Be wary of it creeping up again; Resist “the tyranny sway.”

That girl lies when the truth would sound better…

Is “that girl” still “LYING” around?

This morning on MORNING JOE, Joe said that when he was younger that his sister had a friend that would come over. Of that friend his mom would say to his sister, That girl can not come back over. “She lies when the truth would sound better.” 🤣

The moral of the story was… for the Trump Administration.

Did you watch James Comey in the wiretapping hearing yesterday?
James came to spill tea. He did not come to play.

It was gripping TV. I was glued to the tube.
I was deep in writing though this seemed more exciting –
So I stopped to cop the “dramatic fuel.”

The intelligence committee holding the hearing, ruled!
They were wise, enlightened and was not up for being fooled.

It was deep and intricate and the details were ON FIRE.
Comey and the NSA Director were birds on a wire.

The NSA Director did indeed share the direct spotlight,
But James Comey brought the juiciest details to light.

Fam, it was alright! I watched from 8am to 12:30.
I only walked away because LUNCH was flirty.

I was ‘starving like Marvin‘ at the lunch blocks latter
And enjoyed eating among associates who politics chatter.

They broke it down for me MORE – in historical reference.
Seems a lot that’s going on is treason’y and setting quick precedence.

Where’s our governing sense? How’s your health today?
I hope that you’re well before all goes to hell –
They’ll vote to repeal healthcare on Thursday.

About the media, the administration, their lack of relation and weakened tries,

Is she incapable of telling the truth?

No Week End here

In Book, Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on March 19, 2017 at 7:18 am

no-weekend.jpgThere’s No Week End here, by any measure.
To work at being strong is absolutely my pleasure.

The last book that I read was a biography and it was depth-rich and information sweet.
It was on Michelle Obama, her family, her Moma…and it added strength to me.

That was Friday.
I woke up to the read; a high day.

The read set off a chain of reactions and awoke desires of stifled fires that I’d forgotten about.
So for the last 3-days I’ve been on “the creative raise” knocking incompleted work out!

There was so much to do sitting on the back burner.
What I didn’t know I read up on- I’m a real quick learner!

And so the Week has had No End for me and I remain merry.
Amidst the upload of good to my soul we lost Chuck Berry.

But don’t worry, before completing the dash ” – ” he made a fine mark.
He rolled right in and rocked folks in and out of sin, still all who knew him ‘fell for’ his heart.

He obviously lived a tad bit smart. If you question – bless your hiney.
Chuck was born in 1926 and crossed over at age 90.

Eventually the human body gets weak, gravity is a “hold-you-down” kin.
Still I rise like Maya Angelou and the skies;  I’ve yielded No Week End.
🤗

Today is a new day and per my usual, I started the day in meditation.
I hope you did what you know to do to keep mental clarity in your relation.

GOT TO —  and as often as possible these days.
Days that I forgo “the meditate” I still kneel to pray.

Pray?
Everyday.

It helps me to feel A-Ok. Never mind prescription anxiety meds,
I’m Qui
Affirming that RULE 1 of No Week End is to always Keep your mind fed!!!

So what was the last book about that you read?

Going UNDERGROUND

In Communication, Movies, Networking, Self Improvement, TV Shows on March 14, 2017 at 7:29 am

bokeem-woodbine-undergroundI’m going UNDERGROUND again. Are you coming with?
Bokeem Woodbine has joined the awesome casting list.

Season 2 has insight and good music comes with —
I believe I heard a little Beyoncé and Lamar, Kendrick.

The underscore is deep and references are thick
UNDERGROUND brandishes history and that “slave trade” shick.

I’m down with it – Season 2.
I’m trying to see what Noah ‘nem ‘gone do.

I see that Rosalee‘s mom, Ernestine (house slave queen) is in a reality bind.
Post her fling with the late master she left him hanging from the porch by a vine.

His demise split up the plantation and she lost her “golden ticket” lover.
Now she’s on another slave plantation shacking with a field brother.

Noah is in ‘fate limbo’ and Rosalee is on his heels.
She’s down to free her man; resistant blood will spill.

Talk about a woman that’s down to “ride or die…”
This series would get Harriet Tubman high.

rosalee-noah-undergroundSpeaking of “getting high,” Ernestine is doing it.
A handkerchief to the nose… Ernestine isn’t new to this.

Whatever she’s inhaling in the hankie yields a mind-altering haze.
It allows Ernestine to carry on in the lows that are the life of a slave.

Sad stuff.
America’s History is rough.

However, last season when she was living high on the hill
She offed Pearlie Mae. She delivered ‘the kill.’

Any thrill was short lived and death is nothing at which to squawk
On his wedding day, on the courthouse steps death took John Hawkes.

Now I feel like Esther Rolle, I’m saying “damn, damn, damn!”
We needed him and his protections – human decency is on the lam.

Hot damn! This plants a big arse stick deep in the mud
And retrieving a win with Noah, looks like a distant thud.

By the end of Episode one Rosalee was in progress to free him from a scheduled hang
When they were chased and had to face an even more hungrier gang…

They wanted Noah and while Rosalee and the crew fought –
It was John Hawkes CIVIL RIGHTS assistance that invoked his death be brought.

There was a single gunshot wound to his head as he did arrive
from the doors of the county courthouse with his new bride.

john-hawkes-and-wife.jpeg

Our country’s mirrored history is tough.

However, this show is back in the chamber and Thursday nights are looking up.
