BOO’d UP

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on November 1, 2018 at 10:37 am

good-friends-knowledge-funGood afternoon Sweetie! Naturally, I ate too much candy last night,
though it was the fudge striped cookies that just didn’t do me right.

Did you celebrate Halloween last night? Unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to.
No mimic-dress up for me – I was filming Roll B for a degree that I’m in pursuit.

I did dress “the part;” though, not quite one with bite, ghoul or ghost.
My fashion stroll was for the sake of the Cut Away roll – I stuck to the scripts wardrobe.

And not one kid knocked on my do’. That was truly the scary part.
I know Halloween isn’t my neighborhood’s scene – still I’m a kid at heart.

Oh! And of course, I was BOO’d UP.
I had a little something-something going on in the cut. ūüėČ

But like I said no ghouls, goblins, or ghosts.
So, BIG UPS to the guy who held the boom mic pole.
Thank you, dear sir –¬† you’re a very kind soul. ūüėÄ

So then why am I just coming around, if I stayed in all night?
While I was asleep, my stomach and those darn cookies had a fight.

Those cookies are my favorite, el KEEBLER FUDGE STRIPES.
If those cookies are the culprit, I’m facing yet another fright.
I mean, come on man! I just bought those cookies last night.

I digress.
It’s not a must to consume cookies – I guess.
New comprehension; I accept and confess.

What about you, BOO? What have you got UP for today?
I’m Qui
I’m woke and ready to go post watching Oprah in the G-A.

,

COZY-UP to the Idea of Good coming for you, in your cut.
Then MARRY the Idea and you’re officially BOO’d UP.

Good Luck.
Much Love.

‘Fess Up

In Communication, Griot, Networking, Self Improvement, TV Shows on October 10, 2018 at 6:08 am

BlackLightning-its-lit.pngLast night was the season premiere of that BLACK LIGHTNING mister.
However, the opening fight scene belonged to the ‚ÄúStiletto Sister.”

In this series script,  Kara Fowdy is her name
and from 9-5 she works at the school; after hours she’s in the ASA game.

What she did to Syonide was a fatal shame.
She wedged a stiletto in her throat – in the name of shoe-game. ūü§™

Meanwhile back at the crib with Jefferson and Lynn Pierce,
they discuss the school board not really being up for it and Lynn’s family fears.

She’s worried about the kids; Jennifer in specific.
Jen’s got a gift that her parents aren’t sure that she can deal with it.

Lynn was interrogated by ASA Agent Odell (played by Bill Dukes).
I also saw Robert Townsend in a pivotal scene or two.

Robert portrayed a school board member named Napier. He and Jefferson go way back.
Napier visited Jefferson off-the-clock, to “check him” on being too black.

Making sure Jefferson knows how the whites folk see him.
Reminding him it’s by no easy whim to be black and respected in Freeland.

Did you see it, man? The set up was nice,
though it’s Kara’s role that has me thinking thrice.

After impaling a stiletto heel into the throat of Syonide,
she went out to see Peter (aka Gambi, the tailor guy).

She went to ask for help and said that if he helped her to dodge her ASA fate –
that she would help him to secure “the briefcase.”

You know who else was in this episode among all of the stars?
Attorney Benjamin Frump; Tray’Von Martin’s family’s legal guard.

Attorney Angela Rye made a cameo appearance too.
Like Ben, she portrayed herself; they ‘do what they do.’

T’is true, t’is true. Good ol’ Black Lightning is bringing it to you.
Who doesn’t appreciate such real-life talent and crew? Ooo!

Back to the story, Boo.

Anywho, kids with special powers are trapped in pods;
Leaving the people of Freeland praying to God.

This season, Pinky from Next Friday plays the church pastor in the community,
whose trying to raise a half-a-mil for the return of the pod kids and praying for unity.

It ain’t working for Anissa; she voices as much to her dad.
Meanwhile, Jen’s home talking to Lynn and fires-off when she gets mad.

She literally fired-off a ball of fire and hit her mother.
Mom became the wounded and less the nourishing lover.

Mom was okay tho and recovered in quick time.
Anissa found a half-a-mil; committing a crime against crime.
She delivered it to the church and all is fine.

While the church praised God, Napier delivered to Jefferson, some bad news.
He said ‘the board is done with him and is closing down the high school.’

To make matters worse, one night while Jefferson was out with his LED Bender¬†on —
he ran into ol’ inquisitive, law-derivative, Detective Henderson.

It didn’t go well.
Jefferson’s covert status was shot to hell.

Henderson insisted he ‘Fess Up to the sum
and out came the “you got me,” response from Jefferson.

Yep, that happened.

The Pierce household is in upheaval at this point.
Jennifer can’t control her lightning joint.

BlackLightning-Cast_1

BlackLightning-Cast_2

Jefferson in the end, resigned from his job,
with more focused intentions on the ASA mob

and things are different.
Not to mention that Kara Fowdy is officially missin.’

Did you see what Tobias did to her?
Now her role has taken an interesting turn.

She hardly comes off like she takes easy to being burned…
The return of Black Lightning is more exciting and we’ve so much more to learn.

I do love a good story with many subplots,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, approach this day giving it all that you’ve got!

Side note: Salilm Akil‘s mind is hot.

‘Fess Up and then Bless up!

What now Jefferson???

Buckle up.

Good morning baby. Did you rest well?
The Judiciary hearing is on pause for a brief investigation swell.

It’s true. Unfortunately, I’m not kidding.
I thought Brett would get the point and by the weekend be quitting.

But that was not a marker that was within his scope.
Our institution is resilient; I won’t lose hope.

Good morning baby. Would you like a cup of jo?
Let’s sit and spit about The Global Citizen Festival, yo.

Did you see it? It went on forever.
It’s events like that that positions NY as especially clever.

The dimensional message and the music were true;
the crowd was composed of intellects who push through.

If you saw the event did you note just how chill
the audience was? They listened and stood still.

You heard Janet Jackson say that she was repulsed and showed no nipple or grin
when she referenced the way that our country is treating and disregarding women.

Good morning baby. What have you got up for the week?
You’re thinking about checking your voter’s registration as I speak?

That’s what’s up.
I bid you a prosperous Monday with lots of hugs and fun.

Human interaction. We all need some,
I’m Qui
Good morning baby. Would you prefer coffee or the human touch yum?

Today, go for them both.
And I’ll meet you in the middle, yo!’

POWER Devour

power-season-5.jpg

A Family Friend is someone most of the members of your family know.
You’ve prefaced their name with aunt or uncle; a respectful show.

Eh, yo, have you been watching that series on STARZ?
The storyline bars none and the deeds done are hard.

My Lord, I watched episode eight on yesterday
and I tell you the shows creator and producers do not play.

Kanan gave up his scripted soul in a shootout with the police
because Tariq was feeling hard; Kanan encourages his beast.

And so he’s given up his last dialogue line.
I don’t expect him resurface in the future this time.

The cops swissed him up while Tariq sat in a squad car and watched.
Tariq-Kanan-Power.jpgThe “hard” in Riq hit the road when he was close to losing his own soul;
Kanan chose not to deliver the fatal drop.

I suppose in the end Kanan really was A Family Friend,
as Tasha and Terry Silver abruptly ends.

Yes. Counselman Terry ran for the hills
returning Tasha’s retainer and any idea of intimate thrills.

That was a pretty cold chill, because Tasha had just told Angela and Ghost
that they can feel free to be together, because Terry Silver loves her most.

She said as much only to go straight over to his place
and find his home empty and without a forwarding trace.
The look on Tasha’s face…

She was going to Terry’s to ask him to lie
and yield testimony to the F.B.I. as her “gun witness” alibi.

He just couldn’t do it.
Ol’ Terry packed it up; his actions said “screw it.”

Keisha-Power.pngKeisha and Tommy are trying to get close…
Tommy is beginning to frequent questioning Ghost.

Ghost and Angela took a revived romp in the hay,
but so did Tasha and Terry, before he ran away.

Terry was almost A Family Friend.
Teresi and Tommy are thin blooded kin.

Teresi has plans with the FBI to turn Tommy in.
Diego is dead. Kanan put one in his head
and Dre is headed to the pen.

Yes-Yes, therein episode eight the writers got quite a bit of exposition in.
Blood doesn’t always act like family and who really, is your friend?

You have to know or else all that is good has the potential to sour.
I’m Qui
chopping it up with thee about yesterdays episodic POWER Devour.

Please tell me that you’re watching this.
It’s that insightful 411 that you don’t want to miss.

 

Watch This

watch-this_leonardo-dicaprio.gif

I watched a variety of shows this weekend, some  of vain and some of glory
but none of them were as real as the realities of HOLLYWOOD LOVE STORY.

Have you seen this series? The Millenials have pains.
God bless them, for they see no shame in being completely vain.

Hollywood Love Story is a 30-minute series that focuses on a real subject who strives by talent or sham
to become super-duper famous online,  tho in particular on Instagram.

There are many different people vying and HLS doesn’t focus on any one style or just one way to do it.
Each documentation reflects crystally clear that our Millennials are saying, “screw it.”

Pipe down and listen hard. Tune into HLS on DirecTV’s Viceland.
I’ve seen 5 episodes so far and it made me want to hold my child’s hands.

Where is their self-esteem?
Who did we raise and what did we mean?

They are who they are and they are here to stay.
How on Earth are we going to help them when they just want a popular face?

How is that going to pay for their independence and their rent?
Tune in to Hollywood Love Story; reality is true and generationally bent.

Webp.net-gifmaker (9).gifThe production is 5-star and Paris Hilton is pretty good at hosting.
The series set-up is reminiscent of The Twilight Zone and Rod Serling.

A little bit. Though it is the stories therein and the character content
that will connect, resonate and educate us.  Hence,
it is a series of 30-minute episodes that has equated to time well spent.
Our future is trying to vent.

Are you watching? Are you interested in understanding?
I’m Qui
and I don’t think the option is ours.¬†This culture is demanding.

You gotta’ WATCH THIS.

 

POWER Forward – Move Ahead

In Griot, TV Shows on July 1, 2018 at 1:19 pm

Pushing through to Rayna and Father C’s untimely homegoing,
Tommi and Kanan deliver Ghost to a black market doc for a bullet-wound sewing.

Only after the three breached a warehouse to duly take out Dre.’
but Dre was hiding therein with Cristobal and arms, ready to play.

It went down in an ambushed way – in the respects that Ghost was shot.
Dre is in deep and his spot is beyond hot.

Among professional peers, Angela Valdez is starting to shift into a murky light.
She was over at Detective Ray’s crib, shortly after he lost his life.

The lead police detective on the case is a latina female as well,
and amidst the detective’s intuition, she’s hearing “uncertain bells,”

as in, is AUSA Valdez being honest with her in all that she has to say
about her presence at the home of the recently murdered Detective Ray?

In the meantime, the three re-assembled amigo’s are planning and plotting to go after Dre again.
For 80K Tommy has hired delivery hitters to find and bring Dre to him.

Two Italian mobsters had eyes on him and nabbed him near the deck of laundry,
but Dre had a gun and fired twice; escaping via dual-victim tragedy.

With the help of Gang Jiminez, Tommy, Ghost, and Kanan receive death cards.
Dre delivered Ghosts at Raina’s grave while Kanan and Tommy found them on their cars.

Wearing a Grim Reapers hoodie, Dre is intent on going hard.
Who has the POWER to visit the Dad whose surrendered his kid up to the Lord?

This was Episode 1 of the highly anticipated Season 5
and get this, Tariq is the reason alone, that Dre is still alive.

When the Italians had eyes on Dre, they texted Tommy to say so.
Tommy leaned into the pew ahead of him and whispered the 411 to Ghost.

Tariq overheard Tommy and decided to do the most.
He exited the church, simulating emotions of being hurt
and proceeded to the bathroom to text Dre and let him know.

Dre looked around and saw two brothers eyeing him.
He gave them the slip, before murdering two Italian gems.

Yes! The POWER Forward seems to Move Ahead with Dre.
Therefore, for episode two I wait with breath at bate.

power - tasha_lalaTasha and LaKeisha are back to being tight.
LaKeisha always has Tasha’s back; she’s a Friend For Life.

Therein is also a special life-force and power.
I pray the writers have the strength to not ever let it sour.

Everyone, (especially every woman) needs a wing person like that.
Come hell or high-water, LaKeisha must be a Leo; she has Tasha’s back.

As for Kanan being true to Tommy and Ghost?
I do believe on this issue – he is true; for the most.

POWER Forward through all pains that don’t put you eternally on your back…
They buried their daughter; a twin/a martyr and their son delivers the family stab.

Where on earth is Tariq’s heart and mind at? To the point that I’ve no words behind that “at” preposition!
I’m Qui
at the start of Season 5 of Power and Episode 1 was quite the gripping rendition.

SOUTHERN CHARM – New Orleans

In Communication, fitness, Griot, Networking, TV Shows on June 4, 2018 at 5:15 am

southern-charm_NewOrleans.jpg

Have you seen this new series and the reality cast of players?
Southern Charm NO is armed with chocolate eye-candy slayers.

I like the look very much and the story-line therein does not disappoint.
I was drawn into Season 1 of Southern Charm SC and this is an awesome Jr. anoint.

First up in conversation is la bella Tamica and el fine Barry .
They’re southern rooted, television-suited and social savvy.

 

The two are a power couple/married and they have a couple of kids.
I like their chemistry, an open-book lined with mystery;
even so, they have the most interesting betrothed bid.

Then there’s Tamica’s cousin Jared, and they aren’t kissing.
The gene of good looks is one in their DNA that isn’t missing.

Former NFL stock, Jeff Charleston and wife, Reagan are a real southern treat.
Reagan loves him honestly, and Jeff’s honesty is sweet.

 

She’s in school to be a lawyer and he’s just trying to grapple as best he can with life.
He finds depression lurks from past game hurts and he admits a post-traumatic strife.

I’m an¬†NFL fan whose wavering on being a former fan of Dallas passion,
because I’m not feeling the recent no-kneel policy addendum action.

It’s a rich man’s game – I get it. Though, I thought WE were a team.
But the-rich-stick-with-the-rich and they’re threading the prez’s seam.

It’s not a good look for the NFL¬†teams,
so I’ll watch more of the narrative series¬†scene.

I’ll watch more reality television shows because they’re more real
than what the NFL is becoming while losing diverse-fan appeal.

It’s all the better for me; for in New Orleans, I am dandy
watching Southern Charm and the line of fit-men eye-candy.

southern-charm_jon-moodyJon. You’ve got to meet Jon; he’s the painting artist in the group.
He’s hella’ sexy and women flock to him like fine wine and stiletto boots.

He invites the male cast over to paint Greek-physique’d women in the nude.
They accept without knowing the event theme because Jon’s a real cool dude.

Surprised, each man was to participate in the task
of kicking it with Jon, the oils, the hanging racks, and ass.

I’m sure. Anywho, the look was a tasteful one.
The south is what it’s about and New Orleans is a whole lot of fun.

southern-charm_justin-reeseLast but not least, let’s talk about the good-looking Justin.
He’s the eligible bachelor with a legal successful factor;
the man Kelsey wants to make her husband.

I wish her luck.
Thier chemistry is good – it looks like love.

It’s been twelve months for these two on the Southern Charm scene.
For their 1st year anniversary, Jus’ gave Kels a necklace – not a ring.

Yeah, that sucked, but Kelsey took it in stride.
She’s quite focused at 30 on being a bride.

Kelsey isn’t in the headline picture, even though she’s a photographic flirt.
Beyond her obvious beauty, Kelsey’s a skilled nurse and was likely at work.

I like the cast dynamics. There are high-socials, a diverse skilled cast,  a lot of love and money,
I’m Qui
Enjoying the reflections of TV, it’s reality, the personalities, and the relatability, honey.

Good morning! Good morning! O’ do check my seams,
I went to bed in my forties and woke up in my teens at 10:15.

It’s not Friday but it’s freaky with no switch-out on the scene.
Mischievously perked, with a brow up and short skirt –
I’m definitely in my teens.

Maybe you do or don’t know what I mean.
Feeling without a care, I’m better than fair –
Good God! I feel like I’m my teens.

The day is new my face is aglow.
I’m bound to make my runs and put on a show.

Yo-Yo-Yo! I head Yo! MTV is making a combeback.
My 20-year old told me about a few weeks back.

I haven’t had time to inquire about it more with Fab.
I’m just excited about the jams to come; MTV, welcome back!

This hump day, for me, is but a mountain of sheer pleasure.
I’ve got the stamina of a teen and atop of the peak is a treasure.

Clock my speed as I maneuver. You better believe I’m taking advantage.
I’ve raised my kids and steadied the family bid – my time is mine to manage.

I love a new day and new challenges that come with.
I use my alchemist abilities to create compelling scripts.

Today I’ll be light and quick with the quips.
I think I’m going to a matinee of SOLO – so this entry shall be quick.

I’ve got script work on my mind and it has me feeling jitted up.
I woke up like this; I did, I did – with no caffeine in my cup.

My creative meter is going nuts, so in the latter of the day, I’ll hop onto Final Draft and write,

A giddy and opportunistic-she, happy to observe and perfectly preserved to script a delight.

Oh my, oh my, what will I scribe?

Oy PaperBoi

In Communication, Griot, Networking, TV Shows on April 30, 2018 at 8:15 am

AtlantaGood morning o’ neighbor, dear WordPress kin,
I’m back on the subject of PaperBoi again.

I like him and his cousin Earnie, his friends Darius and Tracey too.
I’m into exploiting the schemes, their dreams and the things that they go through

because the episodes are packed with potential to teach someone a lesson.
The fact that PaperBoi didn’t die in episode 9 was a miraculous¬†blessin.’

Did you see it?
The luck of PaperBoi; I wouldn’t want to be it.

I love the show and the cast of members
who pull me back into the south and its consequences…I remember.

Season 2, episode 8 of the ATLANTA series
PaperBoi went to get a pedicure and ended up in trees.

A forested scene showed up when he decided to walk home from the salon.
It was a half-thought-out idea because he needed to get his ‘clear mind‘ on.

In route, he ran into 3 dudes on a cruise who attempted to beat him black and blue.
It’s true and¬†PaperBoi was solid on delivering those 1’s and 2’s.

Via his handy-work, a can of whip-ass was unleashed
and that’s what lead him to run through the trees.

After fighting off the 3 dudes including one firing a gun
an immediate run through the forest seemed to be safer fun

as well as a reasonably good effort to get away from them.
PaperBoi’s life is full of circumstantial hem.

With a shiner on his upper cheek and blood in his mouth
he was still his even-keeled self, with no time to wince or pout.

As he submerged himself into the forests’ fist
he met a homeless man who wasn’t sure if he’d let him live.

The homeless man had mental health issues and such,
it appeared he was in the thick creating deer guts.

Yes. He had a box-cutter and was suffering a mentally-ill head;
he was slicing deer at the bowels and the deer would drop dead.

Upon discovering PaperBoi in the woods, lip bleeding,¬†and cheek cut –
the homeless man started to stalk PaperBoi – calling him “deer guts.”

The man was nuts. PaperBoi asked the homeless man to ‘please not follow!’,
the homeless man put the box-cutter to PB’s throat; making it hard to swallow.

It was some truly hairy stuff.
PaperBoi started to tear up – but he was not cut.

The homeless man didn’t relent but kept the box-cutter at his throat.
PaperBoi had just dodged a bullet¬†in the street and this was like ‘whoa!’

So, he took a chance and fell backward – away from the blade at his throat.
Then he ran through the lush green as if he was a starved and grazing goat.

He did not eat the green, but he didn’t let the forest eat him either.
Had¬†my dad’s life¬†not been so comparably wild,¬† I’d call the writers outliers.

The show is crazy fantastic; though the stories still ring real.
I’ve got a thing for PaperBoi and Donald Glover’s ATLANTA appeal.

That was episode 8, don’t get me started on episode 9,
but PB, Darius, Earnie, and Tracy wandered across a culture line.

A frat pajama party that PaperBoi was due to perform
lead him to a frat house with a Confederate flag, major weed, and little alarm.

Did you happen to see the show?
It’s about trees, again – but the one folks blow.

Oy PaperBoi and cousin Earnie! It’s a pleasure for me to dig your style,
I’m Qui
Missing the south but no reason to pout, for your series, is relatively wild!

Atlanta

Earnest, Darius, and PaperBoi in ATLANTA

Goodness, gracious, I do love that series ATLANTA.
I watch it by my lonesome for no unnecessary co-banter.

The writers keep a handle on what’s real in the hood.
I laugh, I get a little nervous, but in the end – it’s all good.

The situations? Some are new but most are relatable and well understood.
I live in the southwest, but I originated from a third coast hood.

Atlanta is good cultural food for me in the desert lands of Arizona.
FX gives the best ride of a laid-back vibe from the south upon ya.’

Have you been watching? I’m certainly a PaperBoi fan.
When an opportunity is in the air, he strives to catch it if he can.

Often times, he misses.
Still, his bars are full of dope disses

and he remains largely popular in his hood.
Comedy is at its largest when PB is misunderstood.

There was an episode where PaperBoi was in the backseat
of his hustler man’s car trying to score some weed.

Everything was going alright until
the hustler pulled a gun and -ish got real.

The hustling driver looked in his rearview mirror and said without stall
while pointing a gun into the backseat, “Eh, yo. I’m sorry dawg.”

I’m going to need your bag of cash because my son is sick; today I ain’t selling weed. ‘
Then he asked PaperBoi to get out of his backseat and to relinquish his car keys.

He and hustle man went way back; they had a history that was long.
PaperBoi ended up with dry mouth, empty hands and a sober walk home.

Any chance that you met Bibby? He’s all over episode five or six.
He’s PaperBoi’s barber who’s always in some illicit -ish.

The episode is funny as all get-out, so I won’t say too much
except for it takes an entire episode for PaperBoi to get a haircut.

You would not believe
the day that unfolds– and again with no weed. ūüôā

Why is weed a staple in the script?
Because it’s Atlanta and the writers keep it real.

I don’t know, exactly, but I can relate
to what the writers are serving on the FX series plate.

Dip in and DVR the show if you can’t watch it when it airs.
Donald Glover isn’t childish with his gambino – in fact, he’s quite fair.

A successful future, for him, is in the air. I’m glad to be¬†watching.
I’ve set my DVR to record ATLANTA because it’s the vibe that I’m copping.

I’m a southern girl on this Monday morning. I was southern last night before I went to bed.

Awake and refreshed, a good nights sleep is best – after yesterdays soul food meal and cornbread.
