It’s getting FUNKY

In News on July 12, 2017 at 7:00 am

Qui Entertainment Magazine

Last night as satellite news was spilling it–
The world beside me was watching and reeling it.

Taking notes.
Making jokes.

On that man in the white house
whose not working but should be kicked out?

I don’t know, I’m not crazy about the orange homey,
but he had my patience-pending then he fired Comey.

And then he did an interview with Lester Holt
to prove his good mind may be on the fro.

He admitted on camera like a bird that sings
how he fired James Comey while thinking of “this Russia thing.”

McMasters, Huckabee-Sanders and Sean Spice alike
Have all looked like fools behind Trump on the mic.

Each one braving reporters to buff for the orange twitter.
Just to have the rugged pulled from under them; the prez is no quitter.

Sean is worn out and Huckabee-Sanders is looking crazy.
McMasters came out with…

Calling All BALLERS

In Communication, fitness, Griot, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows on July 7, 2017 at 7:38 am

ballers-spencer-stasmore-rick-jerriet.pngCalling All BALLERS
Not necessarily alcohol shot callers,

but those men in double-stitched shoes and starched collars.
When I see ya’ in transit I sho’ be wanting to hollar,

if for no other reason than to tell you, “Brother, it’s working.
There’s nothing average about the women that target you for their ‘twerking.'”

I should know, I watch the show.
HBO’s showcase of BALLERS is mad proper, yo.

Are you watching?
Financial Advisers are about ‘dollar clocking.’

Dwayne Johnson plays a wealth adviser named Spence’
who signs with NFL players before their cash is spent.

He’s trying to insure that tomorrow they can afford the rent.
The wealth advising game is hard up; relationships are easily bent.

The sound track to this series is jamming and the cast is approaching season 3.
It’s not too late for you to catch up, it’s ON DEMAND for all to see.

HBO-To-Go can get you there if  you’re lap top is up.ballers-spencers-car 

Ladies I promise you it’s worth it – to see The Rock strut.

His acting skills have always come easy. He slides into character like no other.
I must admit I also dig his schtick because he reminds me of my brother.

I only have one brother and he, too, is of former NFL stock.
He left the game and groomed his brain for business meetings on yachts.
.

My brothers collegiate degree
is in Criminology,
Though he found a career in finances to be
lucrative and hard hitting; quite “calling” to he.

Which is most interesting, because this is Spencers scripted story,
He’s a fine and well dressed ex-athlete still fit enough to play in glory.

Instead, just like my brother, before too many injuries were acquired,
he made a career switch that allowed him to still “feel rich”
while helping others avoid financial fire.

Spence is a legacy wealth manager and he’s for hire if you have long dough.
You could learn a lot about finances from watching this handsome show.

I have.

Webp.net-gifmaker (3).gifThe cast of characters are good for eye-candy and CSA isn’t stopping,
It’s a healthy mixture of actors and real players authenticating the copping.
Are you watching?

The show airs on Sunday evening and if you haven’t heard
Season 3 is lining up to Hut-Hut on July 23rd.

What’s not to like about this show, have you ever wondered just WHAT 
happens to NFL players after they resign from the prime time “Hut-Hut?”

They often get regular jobs and pull regular shifts
some at the finance office and some at car dealerships.

Yep. What’s done on the football field is rewarded handsomely in kind,
then you are ‘on your own Jack‘ once the game is done with your behind.

If many former athletes could REWIND I bet we’d find the chances
are high that they’d take better care of their blessed finances.

I wonder how many current BALLERS are a fan of this reflective show,
I’m Qui
learning the after effects of the game are not an if — but a certain, yo!

ballers-spence-wise-up-quote.gifManaging your health and your money, will effectively determine how your life will go.
To come up on male fashion, financial advice and eye candy; you’ve gotta watch this show!

Are you in?

Okay, I’ll be quick, because I have a lot to say,
I’ll start with Trumps tweet about Mika bleeding from the face.

What is up with him, women and blood? Dare I say a fascination?
I’ve no nasty counter words to render him into degradation.

I just don’t and would it really matter?
His base has supported him through countless nasty chatter.

It would truly be less than intelligent to argue with that man.
Unfortunately, it’s becoming easy to tune-out the leader of the land.

I’ll tell ya something else, since we’re chatting it up,
When it comes to 24-hour news: DO NOT TURN UP.

It’s not good for us; it never changes a thang’
To wallow in reality, this surreal strange.

So don’t!
Early on this year, I promised: I won’t.

I frequent outside, I hit the playgrounds,
I laugh at goofy jokes, to keep my humor sound.

I fancy indulging in an ice cream cone from Cold Stone.
And I do so with friends. What’s having all the fun alone?

Don’t do it!  Thus, I don’t.
Regardless the day of the week – I just won’t.

Time is short and is ours to spend
I vote we come together and work on our “mend.”

Work on reacquainting with our neighbors and friends and start some chatter,
About the world, what’s going on, where we stand and what matters.

Remember backyard Barbeques and house parties alike?
Remember when politics wasn’t squit and you had a life?

Friday is a good day to get back to it.
If someone says “let’s watch the news“… Just don’t do it.

Go outside and play, go hang out with family and friends,
If you love your job like I do, work overtime and make some ends.

I’m taking the weekend off, I have a funeral in Texas to attend,
I’m Qui
Happy Friday to thee, I was serious about working on our united “mend.”

Are you in?

Humping Life

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement on June 28, 2017 at 4:30 am

happy-birthday-dad.jpgYesterday was my Dads birthday; the fact was embedded in my sublime.
No one called to remind me, still – all day he was on my mind.

Life is kind. I smiled and laughed aloud once I realized
It was my Dads birthday. ‘Twas a pleasant surprise.

Today upon rising I am still happy.
I slept in a silk bonnet to stave off ‘nappy.’🤣

The first thing I did was read scripture, pray and meditate,
Then I ran downstairs yo! – to fetch a cup of jo and duly start the day!

I’m happy to be alive to thrive in this vibe. Please tell me how you feel?
My dad checked out on May 3rd then my Aunt – on Monday morn. Unreal.

I was still on the heal from my Dad leaving us and now my Aunty has taken the lead.
If a broken heart was literal I’d be suffering an excessive organ bleed.

Sometimes it feels like … “Ooo wee.”
So I just keep it moving –prayerfully.

While I’m emotionally in transit dare I repeat and say,
I am still interested in you. How do you feel today?

Baby are you okay? I pray this day does treat you swell.
After all your health care was not repealed away and is doing quite well.

Whew! What a chaotic scare and the Republicans are in no way through.
In order to divvy tax cuts for the rich they’re dipping into medicades pool.

save-the-aca-protest.jpgDon’t stop showing up to those town hall meetings or those protests in the street
If healthcare for every American citizen is what you want to see.

Every time you let up from showing that you’re fed up they take your inch and stretch it a mile.
Your decency overriden and your good sense smitten while politicians play vile.

I know, dear child. I’ve already humped satellite news and early, yo!
I’ve been up since the night-to-day crux . I ushered in MORNING JOE.

And so here we go! The sun is up and we are effectively on the hump.
Today holds excitement; in my throat there’s a lump

In my solar plex; my tummy, I truly feel butterflies.
Today the limit is set pretty high – way beyond the skies.

rise-people-standup.gifSo rise kinfolk, rise! — if in you there is life
And call up that estranged fam  member and write off any strife.

Then hump on the back of this vibe that is about today,
And ride that girl like she’s yo’ own. Today is all your day!

Take life in with every breath that you draw
Today is another opportunity to move forward past Hem & Haw.

Remember them?

Gird yourself with wisdom and be kind to all that you meet,
I’m Qui
Happy Hump Day to ya, kinfolk. Life with you feels oh so sweet.

Opportunity over Rabbit hole

What’s left in a world that’s chasing its tail
down a rabbit hole to hell
with an over inflated Wall Street, at the bell
and a healthcare plan that wishes you’d never get well?

I’ll tell you on a dime, exactly What’s Left:
Your GOOD MIND! Now, tend to your health.”

Good morning baby! How’d you sleep last night?
Me? Snug as a bug in a rug; solid and tight.

My dreams were alright, easy going, I’m sure I cooed.
Then I woke up to Life, Wednesday and YOU! All of which is cool.

What’s Left for me today? To hang with you and highlight the good
Since Jon Ossoff won’t be representing that Georgia hood.

And that’s okay, right? The political pool is filled with smoke.
I respect the people’s choice – twas the people who cast the vote.

Let yesterday’s story be wrote and make today memorable still.
What’s Left is opportunity! Go ‘head and cop a feel. 🤗

Making it my own…

I went shopping yesterday and bought a cute little chaise.
I’m in the mood today to rearrange this place.


I’m in the mood today to make a new space
In my life, my heart – renew the smile on my face.

I do meditate.
It’s the best way
to start the day.

What’s Left after you loose your sanity and your cool?
Well, there’s always, a cave and a bib for your drool.😄

But that’s not you! And I’m willing to bet
If you put forth new effort you can increase What’s Left.

Exercise your body, exercise your mind.
You’ll find What’s Left beyond a tighter behind

Is clarity of thought and creativity in flow.
I recommend focusing on YOU – you deserve it, Yo!

So with this beautiful new days begin,
I’m Qui
bidding you encouragement to Win! Win! Win!

Yesterday had its relative depths.
Today: opportunity is absolutely What’s Left.

Take it. Make it your own.

Hustlers Convention 2015Let me drop this on ya
– it’s in the air
I caught Chuck D’s “Hustlers Convention” piece –
my heritage on broadcast – a reeled square.

It was Friday afternoon when I landed on the STARZ BLACK station
and heard a few words that made a spirited-soul relation

to my thirsty ears.
Oh dear
I almost squeezed out a tear…

I was so excited.
Words rhymed on a dime
and I did not write it.

THE HUSTLERS CONVENTION — when first I heard of it
was the day I met Fab5Freddy – I rank no chance meet above it.

He shared the history of it all and I loved it.
He encouraged me to embraced my GRIOT root – so I )))HUGGED((( it.

Remember

In Comedy, Communication, Griot, Networking, News on June 16, 2017 at 4:30 am

dont-forget-to-be-awesomeGood morning sweetheart. It’s good to see that you’re up
today we’re just gonna touch on Taking it up the butt.

Today we’re going to take another look at what’s good for the mass,
and remind ourselves that What’s been Missing? The Gas.

Where are the comics? Where is the laughter?
Surely that’s what we’re really all after.

Just a little.
We could use the laughter distraction at our middle.

its-the-weekend-babyAs of late, anxiety is up and drive-thru food is being bought.
Stressful expressions are on the rise and little relief is sought,

so…. let’s not forget, despite what fails life is Pretty Good.
Especially when you’re not living in a prison yard hood.

Especially if you’re not testifying before the Senate
like Comey, Coats and Rogers. They were “in it.”

If those aren’t your issues, then you’re free to walk
unless, Tao, Towel and Chakra’s are on your mind for talk.

If so, Ah-ha! You have my full attentions
as long as Sex Comes Up and is in the mentions.

Remember? Life is at hand so don’t forget the fun,
and when you catch up with your love, ‘go on and get you some.

Friday has arrived and I’m high on life, like those rockies in Denver,
I’m Qui
Grateful to wake up to thee. Life is good, take a minute to Remember.

Pretty Good

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Video on June 9, 2017 at 4:45 am

book-reader-stickfigure.gifGood morning good people, I’m feeling pretty good.
The sleep has been sound in my A-Z hood.

The work has been easy; on my lobes it’s been light.
I’m pretty content in my free spirited life.

I’m  also in the editing bay by myself.
I’d like to take the day off, but it’ll wreak havoc on my wealth.

Hey-ey! I can do the math.  🙂 The hours are well understood,
so I strive to be reel productive in my beautiful A-Z hood.

What have you got up on this breezy Friday morning?
I’m up early feeling flowery & girly – no time for the yawning.

I’ve collected a stack of new books — they range in a myriad of topics.
I’ve got a date with a new book marker & we’re gonna ROCK IT!

There’s little that I like better than “going there” via a book.
Reading equates to mind feeding and THAT’S a Pretty Good look.

trump-hugs-comeySo James Comey testified on Thursday afternoon; there was no smoking gun but a whole lot of hooks.
James didn’t lie but rolled over on ‘the big guy,’ and it was a Pretty Good look.

The presidents personal lawyer made a statement after the public session closed their books.
It was written — he read, like he was fed it and it was hardly Pretty Good.

In fact it was weak, but the “stand up gesture” was sweet. He just wanted to rebut.
What’ll be Pretty Good is if we could get out of these woods and render aid to our gaping  cut.

We are bleeding and leaking out.
Twitter chat  and NSA docs are what its all about.

Reality Winner:  She has won a court case!
reality-winner-arrested-for-nsa-doc-leakThanks to misguided-patriotic duty – she’s staring prison in the face.

Patriotism is questionable these days as Reality went about leaking the documents all wrong.
NOTE: Do not consider leaking -ish, without first booking a room with Julian Assange.

God bless folk trying to do the right thing. We still need good folk in every hood.
Take no unauthorized blinks, loose lips cause ships to sink; none of which is Pretty Good.

Thank goodness it’s the weekend. Hang loose and do your ‘thang.
But don’t you go babbling like Arizonas beloved McCain.

He had the last inquiry during the hearing session yesterdayjohn-mccain-2017.jpg
and so help me God, ‘he gave Clinton a nod’ before he drifted away…

McCain later said, it was just ‘sleepiness’ at play.
He stayed up watching the Diamond Back game too late.

Yahhh! And the Maverick limped on, though his inquiry is now transcribed for historical books.
He sounded funny, but the laughter was good for my tummy, so for the Senator, that was Pretty Good.

This weekend will find
me with a new book bind
learning something new.

Though I always feel Pretty Good
when I’m kicking it with you in my hood,
so what will you be up to?

Are you coming through? You really should.
I’ve got an extra book for ya –  and that’s Pretty Good.

Good morning! Good morning! Let me close with a )))HUG(((!
I’m Qui
Feeling Pretty Good about WE. Whatever you do today, please do it in love.

I’m well on my way.
Yay!

Click here to read about the “Venus of Beautiful Butt.”

Hello and good morning. It’s time to get up.
I knew this title would work: “Taking it up the butt.” check-mark

Are you awake? Are ya? And no, I don’t need to be mentally checked.
I am not serving a side of griot with an entree of  bottoms-up sex.

No ma’am and no sir. That is not my agenda today,
though I do like playing word games. Games are for Monday. 🙂

Hey-ey! Welcome back to work, your salary jizoint, your main grind.
How did you indulge in the weekend? Did you behave your behind?

Did you go to the club? Did you party a little too hard?
Did you find yourself at church Sunday, praying to the Lord?

All is well. Yes – all is good.
I had a Fabulous time in Hollywood.

I did some introspective thinking as I drove the journey to and fro.
Introspection is good. Thyself, you always need to know.

butt-kickFor if you ever lose sight of YOU @ the bridge of any crux,
I’m afraid that’s a set up for Taking it up the butt.

Yes. It most certainly is. Wouldn’t you agree?
And that wouldn’t be best for you nor for me.

Unless, of course the “literal act” is something that you’re into.
No judgement here – I do me… you do you 😉

and we, us two, are here today, ready to start things off right.
I chose a ‘flickted title with provocative insight and you took the bite.

I love your mind.

Good morning baby.
I’m that ‘no limits’ lady.

I’m up early playing word games because it’s Monday and I like it,

A “post introspective” she – I don’t understand all, though I’ll continue to write it…

For life, you and me, I remain continually excited!

Remain COOL

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News on May 31, 2017 at 7:39 am

Screen Shot 2014-07-13 at 8.32.48 PMLIFE is a “happening” thing. It is always “happening” whether we feel we are ready for it or not.

It “happens” to us all. We all go through something. We all have our challenges, the thing is, we must remember to Remain COOL.

‘Tis easier said than done,” you say? I agree, but it doesn’t change the fact that, “The best way out is always through,” — [Robert Frost]

A few weeks ago, I woke up to a beautiful morning and received a note from a friend that she was at the Cancer Treatment Center in Arizona because she recently found out she had an aggressive form of breast cancer and it is in stage 4. First thing’s first I started an instant internal prayer going with the guy upstairs and then I began to research online ‘how to yield strength’ to someone facing such an unforeseen mountain. I found a story that was highly comparable to what my friend is going through, however, the write-up offered  8 Things to Remember When Everything Goes Wrong. These 8 things are fundamental in necessity and can easily yield strength to anyone going through anything. If you click the reference link the write-up goes in detail about each point, but today the details aren’t all that necessary – each line speaks volumes by itself.

LIFE “happens” to the best of us, just remember Remain COOL:

1. Pain is part of growing.
2. Everything in life is temporary.
3. Worrying and complaining changes nothing.
4. Your scars are symbols of your strength.
5. Every little struggle is a step forward.
6. Other people’s negativity is not your problem.
7. What’s meant to be will eventually, BE.
8. The best thing you can do is to keep going.

divider Abstract

I respect life and all that she has to offer,
her beauty, her chaos, her trade-offs and barters.

Everybody goes through something, be prayerful and don’t yield to ‘the fool,’
I’m Qui
encouraging thee, because I, too, need reinforcement to keep my ‘cool.

As for my friend, LIFE is happening to her right now,
While you  Remain COOL will you send up a prayer?
Thanks.
XOXO
