This is pre-Friday and I am duly on one.

Thursdays are important for a myriad of reasons
but one in specific, it’s capacity of evening.

Yes-yes! I love Thursday’s best for it is the perfect time
for me to slip into something nice, put some 80-proof on ice,
grab a pen, and compose a rhyme.

You know how I like to throw it.
I think about you as I whip and compose it.

The jazzy tune in the background really helps to lead the way.
I’m sitting yet yielding my hips to a  rhythmic swerve and sway.
Hey-hey.

It’s what I’m looking forward to.
Good morning sweetheart, I’m thinking about you,

I’m creating a groove.
I’m enjoying the mood.
Tonight is all I want to do.

I’ll get through breakfast with a cup a jo,
with my thoughts on creating, yo.

Oh and you know that I can’t ever get enough
of implying, so in your imagination, I trust.

flirt-winking-black-girl.gifI do, I do.
Perky are my two

lobes. I know…
Don’t let words throw
you off. You’re so boss
in the way that you hold my thoughts.
I translate the vibe into to scripts that will be bought.
idris-elba_flirting.gifNothing so good comes without a cost.

I am invested in you
and the things that you do.

I like watching you. I’m a voyeur of sorts.
I like learning from you; I’m turned on by your smarts.

Oh yes. It’s morning and I’m awake.
Words on un-gird for the elevated take.

Take me. I like it.
That thing you do always spikes it —
so I write it.

Tell me your story; I want to know it.
You know that you affect me because I Griot it.
It’s just the way that I show it.

I know I don’t talk to you like this often. It takes discipline to restrain thyself,
I’m Qui
and being that we’re passed Day 3, I think it’s okay that I’m Feeling Myself.

Let’s start the weekend now.

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.

Once you’ve found it, then forgive yourself. It’s so very important. I already forgave me.

We are our most productive when our hearts and minds are clear.
We’re still in the first month of this awesome Tri-5 year.

If you’re pressing to do good, be on the look-out for situations to show up lacking,
Keep your head up high, and if you must – cry, then send old lack packing.

For when you are doing your best
It is within those times that you are in a test.

Don’t be caught off guard by ol’ man stress.
He is a hurdle – to all who are doing their best.

Burned a few bridges that you now need to cross?
A dose of forgiveness will ward the ash off.

And you will repair those planks that need so,
And you will be more fulfilled in your soul.

And while you’re repairing you’ll have time to think
About the icebergs you’ve hit, that almost made you sink.

And you’ll be grateful to God that you’ve made it this far
by simply purveying The matters of the heart.

Glad that many others including India Aire have chosen to carry it on.

NEWS PERUSE

In Griot, Music, Networking, Politics, Qui Audio Byte, Self Improvement, TV Shows on October 15, 2014 at 8:43 am

alison and mitch 10_2014Alison Grimes looks like her campaign will be left behind as she continues to avoid confession.
She’s really stumped on Old Mitch McConnells grunt as it pertains to the last prez election.

Mitch McConnell: Who did you vote for in the last presidential race?
Alison: (the look of encroachment is all over her face).

But why? Why the un-comfortability? It’s really not that serious.
If you voted for the loser, you weren’t the only one delirious.

KY has their hands full, as we all do with the upcoming month.
Today is the perfect day for a NEWS PERUSE hump.

Happy Hump Day babies! I hope you woke up smiling,
I did, in addition to my hearts emotions wilding.

2014 HipHop AwardsThe BET AWARDS went HARD last night.
It duly interrupted my thought of write.

I duly enjoyed ‘the cypher’ intro’s
and each talented player throwing lyrical blows..

Doug E. Fresh took the mic and his mom was in tow.
Doug E. Fresh kept it 100% and stole our hearts during the show.

David Banner was in a cypher line up and Common was featured on stage,
flaming last nights #HipHopAwards fire that still burns today in rage!

I jammed non-stopped. I’m surprised I’m not skinny.
Because when it came to old school dances, last night I pulled plenty.

The news is full of music and politics.
One burns calories and one will make you sick.

I don’t have any bones to pick with anyone. I’m ready to cast my vote,
However, I am curious as to why dems would distance themselves from President O?

Health care numbers look good and folks are paying back taxes.
I know that I’m not lying, the IRS found my rears axis.

I duly got behind
during that 3-year recession bind.

I’m happy to report, I’m currently “tax up-to-date”
and am happy to pay into America’s healthier fate.

Other good news is:  unemployment is down.
That’s great! No one wants to wear the unemployment crown.

COWBOYS RB Joseph RandleAlso, in the news, a lone situation with a real weird handle:
Frisco PD arrested Dallas Cowboys RB Randle.

It appears to be a very curious charge
citing Randle stole cologne, $40 and drawls.

Really? The dude on the roster of the team that won Sunday?
Felt compelled to steal some smell goods and other sundrys?

I’m a true COWBOY fan, but not much familiar with RB Randle.Dallas Defense Takeover 2014
I’m confident in whatever the details – research and law can handle.

Speaking of The Cowboys, have you been watching?
The defense is sick and the offense ain’t stopping.

I’m glad about it. Romo and the boys make it look fun.
I’m going to take this day to celebrate The COWBOYS 5-1!!!!

It’s Hump Day baby and it’s been a long time and I simply couldn’t refuse!

Ride the HUMP with me

In Communication, Griot, Qui Audio Byte, Self Improvement, Sports on June 5, 2013 at 10:55 am

You know you like it –
profess a HAPPY HUMP DAY to further spike it.

It’s Wednesday again and I’m feeling alright,
I had good company drop in on me last night.

We talked about football, economics and common sense. 
We talked about why Generation X is having trouble paying the rent.

We talked about guidance and reaching out to help the youth.
We talked about the future – facts, fauxs and missed truths.

We talked about it all and could have worked ourselves into a crunch.
Alas, we realized we were doing too much the night before the day of HUMP.

So we dropped all of the predicator stuff and got back to having a good time.
I’m Qui
Wishing the same for thee. Happy Hump Day – Ride the grind.

What have you been up to

And so I’ve been taking it easy
the holidays were sunny, warm and breezy

Thanksgiving was great’full  and Christmas was fun.
While some states gave snow – Arizona blazed sun.
Mmmm yum!

Oral Sum!

And so I’ve been taking it easy – the last 12 months deserve to be cheered,
for yielding wisdom to the Wilson children. I’m looking fwd to the 2013th year.

God has shown up & showed out during the last 365 days.
Leaving me beholden, free and feeling golden – to sing His unbelievable praise.

Indeed! Indeed – Let the roof be raised!
The pastures were plenty. We prosperity grazed.

All the year long we were blessed with good health;
the prosperity of life – far supersedes wealth.

So we’ve all been rich – some gave or lacked giving thanks.
Because the wealth I reference – doesn’t show up in the bank.

Well, think of it this way – money or not, if you’ve got your life: YOU SURELY WIN.
What’s the use of gaining the most dough to spend, if you die young (or alone) -in the end?

So I’ve been taken it easy. Kicking back and enjoying life by the miles.
I’ve been hugging, texting and kissing on my kids more – to invoke smiles.

Thanking God for the memories past, and certainly up for making some of new!
I’m Qui
Glad to be making this moment with thee. Tell me, What have you been up to?

Feeling real cool and…

In Griot, Networking, News, Qui Audio Byte, Self Improvement on December 19, 2012 at 12:14 am

Chilly with a hot flower

[Click HERE to let me say it in your ear]

Tonight it’s chilly out
and I’m really feeling about
myself.
It’s not about the dough coming (immediate wealth),

but my heart is full
no bull –
I’m happy and full.

Feeling real cool and abstract
my skirt is short, my boots are black
my cleavage looks like a fine butt crack.
I’m high on endorphins – ain’t nothing I lack.

I’m writing y’all.
Exciting y’all.

All I need is the lacquered top of a piano
while I scale from alto to soprano
in a smokey bar scene
sequence applique on my seams.

I’m writing y’all.
Free styling y’all.

Feeling real cool and without a care,
I’ve got no pressing problems in my hair.
Feeling free like that old willow tree,
Ooo wee. Ooo wee. Ooo wee.

Tonight it’s chilly out
and what I’m really about
is writing verses,
performing off the cuff – no rehearses,
jazz marinating; submersing.
Free styling – no rehearsing.

December
reminds me to remember
that poetry is at the root
of my soul,
from my head to my boots.
Conversational gold.
It’s a birthright – not to be sold.

So I ain’t selling,
I’m just telling
I’m sweet, comforting and gelling.
Volume is far in range – but I’m not yelling.

I feel good
I wish you would
come cuddle with me
baby.

I feel good
I’m in a mood;
a sweetly spirited
lady.

Feeling real cool and
All I need is a pen in my hand.
All I want is affection from man
and… and…

Feeling real cool and
I do it acapella – I don’t need no band.
I make my own music. No one night stands.
I prefer to use my hand.

Tonight it’s chilly out
without a doubt
I’m loving you… I’m letting it out.

Twins on perk and lips on pout
without a doubt
I’m sparked because… it’s chilly out.

I don’t need no crackers and no hot sauce.
I just need a pen and pad to get me off.

Come with.

Zoe Saldana plays Elizabeth Taylor

In Communication, Griot, Movies, Networking, News, Qui Audio Byte, Self Improvement, TV Shows on October 1, 2012 at 8:15 am

Photo Flipbook Slideshow Maker

Could you imagine a biopic of Michael Jackson being portrayed by a white guy, or a biopic of Elvis Presley being portrayed by a latino or perhaps the story of Che Guevara being portrayed by a black guy?

Sure in the 1920’s during the black-and-white film era white men played the part of indians in classic American ‘cowboy and indian’ tales and let us not forget about the rise of black face in 1830 that spanned entertainment for roughly 100 years – with a whites only cast playing to a whites only audience. Who was going to protest?

Todays SAG roster hosts a plethora of fantastic actors of every race. So why are some filmmakers still opting for the ol’ switch-a-roo?

A lighter, less black version of Nina Simone is the current biopic portrayal in question. “Born the sixth child of a preacher’s family in North Carolina, Simone aspired to be a concert pianist. Her musical path changed direction after she was denied a scholarship to the prestigious Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, despite a well-received audition. Simone was later told by someone working at Curtis that she was rejected because she was black.” –[Wikipedia.org]

[Click here to listen to Qui say the following:]

She lived the life of a true black woman in the darkest shade of stride.
She embraced her reflection in the world and rode gracefully on the highs.

It’s only been 9 short years since Ms. Nina Simone has died;
And film producers have chose to cast her in a Dominican/Puerto Rican light.

Not that there is anything wrong with a lighter skinned sister,
But Nina was black – the sun god of Africa surely kissed her.

Cleopatra was born of Greek & Egyptian blood then portrayed by Elizabeth Taylor.
Liz’s performance was stunning, but comparable to the tanned Cleopatra? No nailer.

The importance of LIKENESS’ is important – history is always at hand.
I really couldn’t imagine MLK being portrayed by a white man.

And even though Michael J. narrowed his nose and bleached his dark skin
I couldn’t imagine a white guy playing his Jackson 5 beginning or his end.

And even though Elvis P stayed high and kept a default set of bloodshot eyes,
I couldn’t imagine casting his portrayal as a bellbottom sporting black guy.

I’m all about artistic likeness’; reeling reality is what sustains her.
I’m wondering if Elizabeth Taylors life could be portrayed by Zoe Saldana?

I’m thinking about mistold stories – if mistold enough times they will be come fact.
Imagine someone portraying Ms. Nina Simone, but the actress isn’t even black.
Don’t do that.

Everyone deserves to see history in the correct likeness, forfeiting legends and reflecting the facts.
Likeness is an important part of our historic culture – even Barbie doll manufacturers understand that.

Jill Scott recently spoke on the news that Zoe would be portraying Ms. Simone,
and commented Zoe’s a great actress, but “may need a prosthetic nose…”
Uh-Oh.

Jill also commented that Zoe Saldana may need a darker shade of foundation.

Don’t wait for someone to ask you to be their sweet.
Beat them to the punch and invite them out to eat.

Stop by the store and buy a box of candy –

And put it on the desk of your office flirt fancy.

Why not?
Make this Valentines Day hot!

Don’t wait for exciting to happen to you – INVOKE it.
If there’s a cutie you’re digging – then SHOW IT.

We’re all mature here – so please don’t be vexed
when I ask you “When was the last time you had sex”?

I’ll bet – I’ll bet that that’s too long.
Go grab your Valentine and embrace ’em strong.

Make dinner for them when they come home.
