Wednesday’s Horseplay – AMERICAN GODS

In Communication, TV Shows on March 11, 2019 at 4:34 am

AmericanGods_Wednesday_characature.jpgAny chance that you caught last nights episode: House On The Rock?

At 5.5-minutes into the show, the cast took a carousel ride that delivered them into the mind of the man with the glass eye, Mr. Wednesday.  He told the tale of how American Gods worked their way into the hearts and minds of Americans and beyond. Gods in this series are Easter, Christmas, Sex, etc., also known as things, dates & events that people worship.  Each God is embodied as human representation.

Have you seen it and are you following?
It’s all fantasy; creative swallowing

is what you will use to understand and enjoy this piece.
The cast is emanation; the storyline yields an intoxicating release.

It’s something to comprehend and see,
the Cinematography skill fills the TV.

The shoot-out scene at 55-minutes into the episode
is the stuff of which griot tales are composed.

Great work, the set, the colors, the metaphoric grasp, and choke.
The shoot-out rendered Shadow Moon into the sky and got Wednesday’s homegirl smoked.

Season 2, Episode 1
reaffirms my yearn for cinematography fun.

I’m shooting daily and learning much.
I could still use help with my lighting touch.

It’s not yet easy to create the perfect lighting plot.
I won’t give up because I’m a persistent snot.

I’m putting in the work but cinematography is not my god.
It is a skill that I am dating for reel; it’s a Science that I like a lot.

You could call it my new honey pot in which case you could call me Poo bear,
I’m Qui
enjoying the DP work on American Gods. The visuals are bold and can hold a stare.
The subject matter is always creative batter and leaves the imagination little to spare.

Mr. Wednesday pulls them all in…

Unexpected Endings

In Communication, Griot, Movies, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on March 8, 2019 at 5:12 am

.
And so it is the weekend, baby.
I’m up early for the worm – I’m a shot-calling lady.

I was up late last night shooting scenes.
The FS5 is what I do. It’s my thing.

I am focusing on camera movement and lights.
I’m studying all of the greats so that I can bite.

Aye, aye, aye! I’ve got many homages to pay.
I’ve got a griot script that I need to slay.

Hey! It’s the weekend baby and I’m excited about it.
Stand the studio up and not assist the cut? I doubt it.

I am giddy to be shadowing such exciting cinematographers.
I’ve got to thank my collegiate curriculum for turning out reel cinema-ballers.

I’m all hers; New Skill can call me up anytime.
I’m guilty of always picking up the call line

because Unexpected Endings is what I find.
BIG UPS to Arizona Studios and their reel project grinds.

You never know what life will present to you when you set out on a journey…
I pray that you find new life during your life before resting on the gurney.

Go on and pray-it-back for me, too.
Today I’ve got so much stuff to do

that I could really always use a good word being put-in with the big guy.
I’m gonna also ask you to send up one more for Alex Trebek‘s quality of life.

I’m not a big JEOPARDY fan, but my mom loves it the most
and it seems pancreatic cancer has donned on the host.

If you believe in the Father, The Son and The Holy Ghost, the Holy Koran and such,
then yes, send up a good word for the sick and shut-in; do it out of love.

And that is my Ms. Community plea for the week;
a knowledge-heavy weekend is what I yearn and seek.

I’ve got 2 short films to direct and reel
if I intend to keep my honors appeal.

I know that you’re with me; I know that you understand,
I’ve got some scripts to birth and some eyes to land.

Heyyy! Hold my hand. It’s been you and I since the very beginning,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, let’s script a movie. I’m up for Unexpected Endings.

Throwing Papayas at Tobias – BLACK LIGHTNING

In Book, Communication, Griot, News, TV Shows on March 6, 2019 at 2:03 pm

BlackLightning_RevPinky_Khalil.gif
.
Episode 11 took-out Reverend Pinky and Jade’s boyfriend, Khalil.
It had an emotional, roller coaster feel.

Episode 12 brought my girl Perenna (portrayed by Erika Alexander) back in.
Her metaphysics are strong like ethanol gin.

Hm. Let’s see… Where do I begin?

Thunder went into the trap and duly kicked the ass
of Black Bird & his crew – and then she took their cash.

For two reasons – if you’re inclined to ask:

1) for Black Bird putting his hands on his gal
2) to pay for Khalil’s funeral; because she’s a pal.

But stealing Black Bird’s money didn’t come without a price,
La Thunder chica almost lost her life.

Black Bird’s boys put it on her; they weren’t for that jive.
One of them mased her face and vulnerable became her life.

Though she healed up quickly and remains strong,
I’m digging her existence and hopes she goes long.

Dear Black Lightning:
Your new suit is exciting.

The series’ fresh content yields praise to the writers and to the producers.
Peep the above-the-line cast; magic is made by reel juicers.

At the conclusion of the episode we witnessed Khalil laid into the ground;
we also saw Tobias planning to live as Jade plans to take him down.

I wish I had a whole bag of rotten papayas,
I would throw them all at Black Lightning’s Tobias.

But when you really think about it, he is the sum of awesome character development.
I’m Qui
Digging Black Lightning TV; thus, it’s my pleasure to vent.

Way to nail a role Marvin “Krondon” Jones 3.
I enjoy your work on the BLACK LIGHTNING series.

Good Morning Monday

good_morning_monday.jpegGood morning baby. How are you doing?
I’m over here in my studies, Bachelors of Science pursuing

and I’m doing good. My GPA is one that you’d agree with.
The curriculum load is heavy – but not too heavy for the kid.

Enough about me, I have missed you duly.
Did you enjoy your weekend? Did you ‘take it easy,’ truly?

I did.
Nothing bothered my wig.

I lived in the editing bay.
The fundamentals of production are in play.

I’m up a little later because I bed real late.
I spend 8-12 hours on production; my work is my play.

Hey! I’m into it and I’m also into you.
Good Morning Monday love. I’ve really missed you, Boo.

Any chance that you caught the finale of the TRUE DETECTIVE series?
I loved the entire production especially Mahershala Ali.

Ooo Wee, he and Stephen Dorff his co-star
spanned the ages of their character’s, by far.

ms_jane_pittman_cicely_tyson

Cicely Tyson played ALL OF THE ROLES

They took a page straight from Ms. Jane Pittman‘s make-up chair.
The way Mahershala moved in and out of era caused me to greatly stare.

vultures_true_detective_mahershala_ali.jpg

Great work, good writing.
All of the composition was inviting.

HBO is on it; I duly aspire.
Having said as much, I’ll bid you adieu so I can go script fire.

Though you should also know that I have not had my a.m. coffee,
I’m Qui
Dear Monday Morning I love thee and the lack of caffeine has never stopped me.

Happy Third Day

dynamic 3.gifGood morning Humpday. How’s it hanging?
Spring is in the air and things are a changing.

My collegiate load is heavy but not to exceed more than I can take.
We’ve been going strong for a little long; thank God for the upcoming Spring Break!

For duly a break at Spring it will be mine to take.
You best believe that I cannot wait.

But today is the third day; Humpday –
I’m up early to work – because later, I plan to play.

Right now, there’s The PASSAGE series and homework in my face.
There’s no time for the jo.’ The two of us need space.

My hiatus is temporary, I’m sure.
But to combat morning anxiety — this is proving to be the cure.

pouring-out-wineEasy-peezy!
So I’m up sipping water and life is breezy. 😊

How about you?
How’s the view?

Are you in the office or are you out and about?
Are you on vacate, taking PA, or just have high clout?

Either way, enjoy this day to the fullest.
And don’t watch too much TV – that stuff can be bullish.

Hug yourself and your fam; make a sweet memory today.
Time is non-refundable nor do moment come to stay.

Take advantage.
Prioritize well and you can manage.

Happy Third Day, baby and how do you do?

Up early to reap the day’s firsts; a connoisseur of opportunistic dew.

HIGH MAINTENANCE

In Griot, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on February 8, 2019 at 5:43 am


.

Season 3 Episode 3: BLONDIE – Have you had a chance to taste it?
I’ve watched it a couple of times and realize we have to face it:

FOLKS LIKE TO BE ELEVATED.

I must admit before season 3 episode 2, I hadn’t ever seen it before.
Dimensionally it is a success; check its IMDB score.

What’s more is that one of the show’s co-creators is more than a scripting factor,
he’s also the principle guy in the series; double credit as writer and an actor.

That’s what up!
I love it when one variable yields multiple cuts.

GOALS.

What’s the upkeep of your journey, how goes your lifestyle?
Are you high or low maintenance? Don’t put on for us, child.

Do your thing while you’re agile,
live incognito; live out loud.

Write up an idea about the world that you see,
then compose a POC and share it with me.

I say as much because beyond the day that I graduate
my POC’s and capacity will convey and facilitate.

I am very much into this.
There are not many stages of production that I care to miss.
Not if I really intend on (tomorrow), having this.

i-got-this.jpg

Everything needs upkeep and everything needs maintenance,
Forego mediocre theater; don’t let circumstances play us.

Amadeus!

Take a deep breath in and exhale strongly my friend,
I’m Qui
and life is what it is; a cyclic rotation that we are in. I’m literal with the spin.

Miss me with the ash.

The SIFT Show

Kicking it with John, Alex, and Mark

.

We are in the 4th season of SHOWTIME’s series, THE CIRCUS with John Hieleman, Alex Wagner, and Mark McKinnon who are selling peanuts, popcorn, and front row seats to sift through seven days of political views under the current administration’s hue. If you haven’t noticed, it has been quite the sift-show.

Episode 2 of The Circus’ 4th season aired last night and the trapeze artists were all over the place; titling the previous week’s events as  ” Circling Vultures.” The opening had an Anthony Bourdain feel to it as we are meeting up with Mark and Alex in an NYC diner for their weekly rendezvous.; they call John and the sifting begins…

Executive Humiliation

Gallery of Presidential Candidates 

KAMALA HARRIS: “Let’s Do This!”

For those that say Kamala is a young senator that has not done enough outside of the state of California, THE CIRCUS has two names by comparison for you: Barack Obama and Donald Trump.

CLIFF SIMS, former Trump Advisor turned Aide has the cutest set of dimples and has published the most poisonous book of snakes: TEAM VIPERS. Cliff said there’s an atmosphere in the White House of  “Kill or be killed” kind-of vibe going on.” And then Cliff goes on to recall a line from TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, quoting, “Things are not as bad as they seem,” he continues, “That is how Donald Trump operates.”

SARAH SANDERS and the WHITE HOUSE PRESS BRIEF
yields the concerning public no sweet relief.

ROGER STONE‘s media tour of “I’ve Done No Wrong”
isn’t going so strong, despite paid aides fanning his throne.

MICHAEL BLOOMBERG is flirting to run in 2020;
as for advice to HOWARD SCHULTZ, he has plenty.

Both men are skilled and noted billionaires.
Neither man can relate to the average American Health Care scare.

Universal Healthcare & Healthcare for all,
just may be their identified APPEAL STALL.

COREY BOOKER, the Senator from NJ has thrown his hat in the race
and he did so in front of his domicile place; poised with relativity, hope, and grace.

Senator Booker’s tenacity for unity is no surprise
and his slogan hits home: “WE WILL RISE.”

Maya Wiley and Nick Ackerman closed the show over a meal with John H.
The Circus is the wildest political show on Earth and for episode 3, I can’t wait.

Drop in on The Circus this weekend and enjoy The Sift Show,

Sipping Monday jo and eating 411 on the go.

Keep It Moving

Good morning sweetheart. Allow me to catch you mid-stride
and say “There’s nothing new under the sun,” — not one new vibe.

That is if the above video is indeed a relic truth.
Isn’t that what one 2016 candidate was selling me and you?

I didn’t buy it.
Many did and now many deny it.

Still according to the 1950’s black and white narrative series clip
there was one 2016 candidate who was not shooting from the hip.

Not at all – not at all.
A script from a canceled series was recalled

and now we are living out a show that the networks cut short.
So about our collective position, whilst there be any thwart?

Especially since we know that some shows should never be remade.
Good morning Monday, please Keep It Moving and thank you for the shade.

Good morning sweetheart, I missed you over the last few days.
Were you out and about being compassionate or engaging in misbehave?

We all misbehave from time to time, and hopefully, we all know when to stop.
No one can fool all of the people all of the time – regardless of your status-quo-snot.

Things have long heated up to “hot,” and I’m so glad that I didn’t choose the turtle neck.

Good morning to thee, please continue to be patient whilst Karma does a check.

It may be his day today, though tomorrow – who is next?

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. 😉

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. 😀

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 “Stiletto 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. 🤪

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???
