Leadership

leadership

What does leadership have to do with entertainment? The name of this site is Qui Entertainment Magazine, so then why are we always creating content that plays off of, parallels,  and reflects world views? Because multimedia producers are leaders. My line of work is global and requires me to create relative content responsibly. Research and think tanks are my jam.

Leadership is needed on every level. We need it in sports, we need it in combat, we need it in the E.R., we need it in church or else that one sister will sing all of the praise & worship songs during her testimony. Leaders set boundaries that support purpose. Stating that each testimonial is yielded to 3-minutes will keep most folk from going into the second verse on that hymn that describes their sentiment perfectly and will leave enough time in the service for others to express themselves as well. Leadership is needed, or we’d all be singing a different tune; not acknowledging or even hearing the messages of others that may contain life saving wisdom.
  Can I get an Amen?

Leaders are visible, like Governor Cuomo in New York.
Divvying life saving information is a patriot’s sport.

There are so many other leaders, I am sure, who are stepping up to the plate
to prove that they have the capacity to think, discern and contemplate.

It’s called governing and leaders are stepping up.
That’s great because virus cases are revving up.

We got this. Schumer is on the House floor right now talking sums
that equate to employers paying employees to stay home for 4 months.

We can do this. We can hit this head on and come out stronger.
We should act now – not in 12-more days; no need to be a prolonger.

Let’s first lead at home. Lead the family to wash their hands.
Then stay inside of your homes and admire your manicured land.

If your land is un-manicured, you don’t have to worry about being bored.weed-pulling
During your time at home, you and the fam can do team building with chores.

Make necessary work fun again.
Post weed-pulling pics on social media for friends.

Why not?
The weather is fair and not too hot.

Okay, maybe weed-pulling isn’t “a thing,”
especially if you’re in more of a city scene.

Leaders in your hood
are best equipped to tell you what’s good.

As for me and my household, we are full of hope.
Are we going to the mall and eating out as usual? Nope.

We have calibrated our to and fro
follow-the-leader_ducksto give the world time to figure things out, yo.

We are doing our best to be educated heed’ers.
We are doing our best to be in-home leaders.

Leadership should begin at home.
Line the fam up and get in a zone.

Together we can fight this.
Leadership is necessary but doesn’t feel like bliss.

That’s okay. Via united leadership we will all come out strong,
I’m Qui
Good morning to the leader in thee; prepare your fam to survive long.

Reliance on Science

NEEDED.

Good afternoon kinfolk. What’s good in the hood today?
I’ve been on a researching binge of what scientist have to say

about this pandemic that is sweeping the world by far.
It’s being compared to yesterday’s strains of SAR.

I woke at 8am this morning to an incredible read
that a family member sent to me; an educational seed.

It was from STATNews.com and therein it conveys
that Scientists are in ploy; good minds are at play.

Still, for the masses, they have nothing good to say.
They are working from behind the eight ball to restore the day.

Turns out that W.H.O. did not offer our country a CORONA Test and we didn’t really say NO.
We have always staffed the biggest and brightest minds in science – per history shows.

So when initially we were notified of a test prototype –
America just responded with its usual rigmarole ‘hype:

no-thanks_meme.gif

Feeling nostalgic about our capacity to lead.

But this administration has laid off CDC scientists; they’re in the unemployment line.
I am over here on my domestic research looking for a viral bind;

a natural substance that can render protection.
I’m also praying for a new W.H. resident after the election.

We need leadership. We need healthcare solutions. We need the V.A.
We need to adopt an INDIVIDUAL’s MISSION to help ourselves every day.

It’s okay if you want to look at New York as Governor Cuomo leads the way.
He doesn’t have a blueprint on COVID19, but his wisdom is at play.

Washing our hands is a good way to avoid spread, as well as not visiting your friends.
If we all take a minute to cut-it-out, lives won’t unnecessarily end.

This is something that we all can comprehend.
Go on and hit up Skype and Facetime again.

Yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day and I drank myself silly.
I was in the company of a few friends; well kind of, but not really.

I’m about science and safety so —
I partied unbridled and solo on video. 😛

What did you do, yo? Please don’t tell me that you —
were locked in the house with a pursed mouth watching the news.

Were you? That’s what’s up. I applaud you for thinking “safety first.”
Me, too, man, but I couldn’t save the plan of not quenching the calendar-day thirst.

Enough of that. It’s HUMP DAY and I’m talking much,
because I miss your presence and the human touch.

I am glad that I have this blog page to write
and connect with you on life-saving insight.

So, if you are home and have a minute to “knowledge add,”
I implore you to go on over and read the article and comments on STAT.

Do it and be wise.
Do it to save lives.

Let’s do what we can to stop this virus, by comedy-hook or lab crook,
I’m Qui
Be encouraged to keep living and take your cue from The Brooks:

Lets hit this ANTHONY HAMILTON Concert

In Communication, Music, News, Self Improvement, Video on March 14, 2020 at 6:34 am

When life is sweet among many days of tart
it’s good to reflect on the contents of your heart.

It’s good to sit back, kick your feet up and reflect
on where you’ve been, who you’ve loved and what you’re on to do next.

Let Anthony Hamilton sweeten the road.
His talent is a God-Science; substantial like gold.

Ooo wee and whoa. He can warm any cold;
the backup singers call to my soul
Anthony-Hamilton-NPR-2016

and I love listening.
It puts me in a zone; it’s got me wishing…

Is that alright? Pardon my forward stance.
You’re just so easy to talk to; I call you friend, man.

You and I are tight. Right?
Let us jam some Anthony Hamilton tonight.

The view above is good cinematography, by far.
Let’s give a little love to the Producers at NPR.

The TINY DESK Concert was shot 4 years ago.
Amazing resonance and penetrance to the soul.

Good morning baby. Yes, you must stay in today,
I’m Qui
Let’s start with breakfast in bed & Anthony on rotate.

You don’t have to go outside just to play.
Goodness is within. Happy Saturday.

Way To Go with The Vote

In Communication, Griot, Music, News, Politics, Self Improvement, Video on March 11, 2020 at 5:53 am

I hear you America, your vocals are strong.
Do what feels right because you understand what’s wrong.

Yesterday’s primary turn-out had it going on. I’m proud of you.
Michigan rose to the occasion to do what they needed to do,
and came through.

I slept like a baby and dreamed quite vivid.
Good energy is up while the low energy is livid.

Unity requires a standard of respect and respect has been at lack.
Rise this morning, smile in the mirror and get your unity back.

libra.jpgAmerica is a Libra today; the balance of her positive scale looks not so low.
The world is at a better starting-point today, because of the American vote.

Atta’ boy! Enjoy the self-pat on you head
and jam the headline video of what UMI SAID.

As for that nasty-boy Covid19
the blood of Jesus can cover you from that scene.

Divine favor from your maker is real.
Someone that you know tested positive? They can heal.

Atoms and energy composes us all.
Angels are protecting you; illnesses fall.

When life presents us with a situation that has swollen out of our control
God steps in with biological winds that avert ill-will from His children’s souls.

I’m a girl of Science. I think Science is tops.
I’m a supernatural girl; I believe in God.

I’m a storyteller; you know me,
I’ll always champion the good of WE.

Last night the world saw our intentions; may the markets honestly rise,
I’m Qui
Good morning sweetheart, there’s divine help beyond the skies.

Key BLACK HISTORY: Multi Media PLAYERS IV

In Communication, Griot, Movies, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on February 24, 2020 at 6:30 am


.
Alright, Good People: I’m at it again, with something that you can feel
in the spirit of Black History, I’m thrown back to JORDAN PEELE.

Have you seen the new Amazon series THE HUNTERS?
It parallels todays hell; the script is a punter.

I am enjoying the series install.
It’s a throwback view of — us all.

This show takes a particular look into hate,
the law, the people; a legacy page.

A lot is up for debate on this piece.
Composed of real stories, yet hard to believe.

Give it up people: for content creators who keep it real.
Give it up people:  for the history of Jordan Peele.

He is showing you yourself – regardless of your race.
The Hunters series has potential; may it take its place.

HOME. I am an American. The American way yields an intellectual key.
Home. I am an American; I am about her values and BLACK HISTORY.

BAD BOYS For LIFESpeaking of making history, let’s talk about Martin and Will —
and the alchemy of good times they have captured in their reel.

BAD BOYS came back this year and made history;
approaching $200 million box office reception carries mystery.

Like, why is it that folks have turned out to see them in show?
Is it likely we missed the days of wholesome entertainment, so….

We bought tickets to sit in the theater and be consumed
with yesterdays situation and these beloved two.

What is it about yesterday that invokes us to congregate,
pay a door fee in hopes to rewind history and improve today?

Whatever it is… let’s all hold to it.
When it comes to supporting Box Office Numbers
please continue to DO IT.

The BAD BOYS franchise is raking it all in
because yesterday was good and karma is a friend.

Not to mention that one of the cast members claims to be an Alchemist.
Both relate in laughter, though making gold belongs to Will.

He remains reflecting that “go getters appeal.”
Martin Lawrence is still the neighbor who ‘we feel.’

Scripting realities is quite the reflection of yet another —
Mr. Writer/Director/Executive Producer, Donald Glover.

Donald is Childish Gambino (the musician) and he knows full well,
what type of patience it takes to produce: A-T-L.

It’s been off of the air for a spell but is slated to come back with plenty.
In 2018 FX renewed for Season 3 and 4 to be broadcast the year after 2020.

It’s not easy being independent. So many of us want to be.
So give it up to the brother that embodies it; give it up DG/CG.

Which brings to mind another no limit storyteller
Curtis “50Cent” Jackson gets better and better!

Have you seen the view of his latest characteristic plight?
It stars Nicholas Pinnock in a new series called FOR LIFE:

Like Power, FOR LIFE takes off quickly.
The storyline is relative and connects swiftly.

A Multi Media Player usually plays more than one role;
an influencer of views to be told and to be sold.

Any chance that you’re watching either of these shows?
Your support is appreciated and I hope the show moves your soul.

Black History month is short and perhaps that was the calendar goal.
I am grateful for any reservations to culture-uplift and boast.

I’m a Multi-Media player; I write, chronicle, direct and shoot,
I’m Qui
Just taking a moment with thee to shine a light on our Black AmericanRoots.

Key BLACK HISTORY: Multi Media PLAYERS II

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on February 12, 2020 at 8:19 am

TUNE IN TONIGHT @ 8/7c

.

Multi Media – when defined as an adjective (of art, education, etc.) refers to using more than one medium of expression or communication. “A multimedia art form”
As a noun the term is defined as the use of a variety of artistic or communicative media.

Which is the perfect description, (in some aspect) of every PLAYER that we highlight in this piece. What do yo know about:

The Pisces and chameleon JORDAN PEELE?
I first took notice of him during a show titled Key and Peele,
and then he busted the box offices with creative & reflective reel.

GET OUT and US are digital releases that I own.
Jordan Peele is a Multi Media Player and one who’s quite strong.

I’d like to get him on the phone and bring up Issa Rae;
talk about collaborating and then call Issa on three way.

ISSA RAE, Issa Rae. Girl what do you say?
You are no longer INSECURE in any way

and it’s a good look.
Ass is getting fat,” cause your content hooks.

I am paying attention, I am learning and I laugh.
I’ll see you at this weekend’s opening of:  THE PHOTOGRAPH.

Though tonight belongs to – la bella, AVA DUVERNAY 
as she broaches Day 2 of: CHERISH THE DAY.

It is Key that we continue to understand our BLACK HISTORY.
Ava takes on Black Love because it shouldn’t remain a mystery.
#Anthology

The view is kissing me. Let it kiss you back.
Today’s topic is historic on the legacy that is Black,

and not only that, but the production cast and crew is Full Gender Parody.
That means 50/50 on the sexes; an even-playing-field is always key.

I need you and you need me.
Give it up for Ava and opportunity.

The world is changing and we should all strive to be stronger and leaner.
The views are showing up more true, like those seen in GRASS IS GREENER.

Have you seen her? The documentary that claims —
there’s been a miscomprehension on the necessity of Mary Jane.

FAB5FREDDY is no newbie to Multi-Media; he’s long been a reel player.
So, when it came to documenting weed? Fab5 took the lead as ‘the slayer.’

Nothing wrong with it.
I’m sure he researched the foliage before he ‘hit it.’ 😛

Still, he did it! He brought the topic to the forefront.
The documentary is blunt and yields an intellectual punt:

You don’t have to be a smoker to be concerned
about the legacy of a whole race of people being burned.

So many African Americans are still currently serving jail time,
behind a blunt on a roach clip from cirque 1969…

Or something like that.
There’s a legacy rotation on the puff-puff pass

in my community.
Like Native Americans – weed invokes unity.

The law has decided to let it be.
America’s GREEN LAWS are making history.

Let’s keep it up; lay good intentions like brick layers
and do it in plain site – like these Multi Media Players.

The children are watching us, so is the rest of the world.
I’m glad to be GENDER PARODY; highlighting boys and girls.

I’ve taken my cue from Ava and the rest,
I’m Qui
reflecting BLACK HISTORY – it’s me at my best.

Are you watching? Are you clocking?

Key BLACK HISTORY: Multi Media PLAYERS I

In Communication, education, Griot, Music, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on February 8, 2020 at 1:57 am

Key Black History_Multi Media Players-1.gifI have a feeling this title will be a reoccurring one
because being a Multi Media Player is so much fun. So, let’s start with:

ANGELA BASSETT
She knows only to smash it!
Have you ever seen a show with her in it
and she didn’t win it?

BEYONCE is always about an intentional slay.
Learn the rules, and get in Formation if you want to play!

SHONDA RHIMES is a series network Dime.
Holding audiences captive is her M.O. shine.

QUI is WHO keeps
the Griot beat
and yields sublime rhymes
that chronicle our times.

OPRAH enhances the view inside of our homes
via the many positive morale shows on OWN.

She mastered adolescent success and transcended it to grown.
Kicking it with JADA PINKETT-SMITH is to listen strong.

She’s got a Podcast Show titled RED TABLE TALK.
She is a woman of will and she walks the walk.

Introducing Ms. SYLEENA JOHNSON – to those who don’t already know.
She’s new to me via  TV ONE’s SISTER CIRCLE show.

She is one of four hosts. Please tell me that you’ve seen it?
Once I tuned in, I realized just how much I mean it…

to support them.
Their union of love needs no alteration or hem.

On a recent episode I became a Syleena fan –
when I heard her new joint titled, WOMAN:

These are just a few skill capacity slayers
that I’m proud to list as Multi Media Players.

What about you?
What’s that thing that you do –
that you are into?

It’s because of you that each player get’s any play.
Big THANKS to you and your consumer ways.

Black History wouldn’t be the same without you,
I’m Qui
grateful and humble. This bow is for you.

Feeling POWER

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows, Video on February 3, 2020 at 6:43 am

I’ve got a feeling that today is going to be tops!
I also enjoyed Cedric The Entertainer on POWER as Pops.

Well, I didn’t expect to blurt it out like that,
but once I caught up on POWER I was lain flat

as to #WhoShotGhost.
My mind has been worked to and fro

until we came to the end of episode 14
where Jamie’s nightmare seems to be shaping-up as Tariq’s dream.

Did you feel something in the pit of your gut
saying, “My God, do you hate yourself that much?

That’s a question for Tariq and those who agree
that his anger should billow and rage like the sea.

But to what end?
Ghosts DNA resides within.

So will Tariq hate himself too?
If he is the reaper – heartbreak is TRUTH.

At current we don’t know much, but we do know fate —
and it is rising up via the storyline of Congressman Tate.

lahmard-lorenz-tate.jpgI enjoyed seeing Tate work with his biological big bro.
Sandwiched between Lorenz and Lahmard is the way to go,

says the femme viewer with the giving smile.
There’s no sleep on the last leg of the POWER mile.

You know, I hate to see it go.
I kind of wish it was like that FRIENDS show.

Remember how long they went on?
I believe it closed when their grandkids were grown.

Oh, I’m kidding.
But when the getting is good – we keep giving.

Did you feel that Tommy made the right move?
I think he saw the killer before cutting a new groove

in his inherited purple muscle machine.
Ghost left it for Tommy to exit the scene.

Stage right.
Episode 14 was alright.

I’m a girl of numbers; I’m a girl about letters and scenes.
To know me well, I like increments of 5; esp. the number 15.

The last episode of POWER is slated to air on Feb. 9th; next week.
I’m sad to see it end with all of my friends – this series is an emotional beast.

A common and dysfunctional release was emitted at every broadcast.
Still the people connected to it and 6 seasons went fast.

The good news is that each cast member is free now to commit to other projects.
I first knew of Omari Hardwick as Shavoo on a Comedy/Drama set.

Good times. I shant forget:

and

There’s power in not being typecast for too long.
Omari H. is easy on the eyes and his diversity is strong.

Make me laugh. Make me cry. Invoke me to feel fresh and sour?
Well that is indeed the science of cinematic power

and STARZ has the gauntlet, but not for much longer,
I’m Qui
Good morning Day 1. I reserve the write to compose stronger.

PS –  I just want to include a shout out to the lead actor on GOD FRIENDED ME.
He played Cedric’s son last night; a friend to crime until it became his enemy.

A More Meaningful Monday

In Communication, Griot, Movies, News, Self Improvement, Video on January 27, 2020 at 4:48 am

give-thought-meaningful.gif

It’s Monday again, but what does it mean?
Are we to comprehend what others say and unravel at the seams?

Me think not.
The day is young and the seat ain’t hot.

Is it?
I woke up early to Griot spit-it.
What about you? TAG! You’re it.

the-gavel.gifWhat are your intentions to see this day through?
It’s a friendly question from me to you.

What sayest ye on this Monday, good fellow?
Did you sleep well last night; was your weekend mellow?

Mine was. Regardless of the relentless hug
that Congress yielded to us; I call it love.

I rested well; meditated and stuff.
That’s what I do at impositions marked “rough.”

And I do believe that history will recall —
this era to be “rough” without an inked stall.

The moment is trying.
But I ain’t buying.

self-hug.gif

Life is intended to be lived;
to love to laugh, receive and give.

What are you giving today?
No hardness or bubblegum focus on the play.

Me? I’m giving encouragement, compliments, and love.
Starting with myself; I will begin with a HUG.

Did you hug yourself today?
Go on and list-it-out followed by a bullet point to PLAY.
It’s imperative that you don’t forget. Okay?

Inject and acquire more Meaning today.
Voice your opinion and comprehend the say.
Be mindful in the moment: A More Meaningful Monday.
Get up, get out, and get something; let OUTKAST play:

.

Today is a fine day because you’re alive and good moves are within your reach.
I’m Qui
and this day would have little meaning without you – pray for the dude whose under impeach.

In the spirit of “more meaning,” call it a good deed.
Let a blanket of love be our collective response and release.

The perfect way for this piece to end —
is to request more prayers for the loved ones of:

Kobe, Gigi, and Friends.

Make it A More Meaningful Monday.

 

 

 

 

The BACKEND

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

I think that it’s high time we talk about the ‘hind-kind’ again.
As in your backside, badonkadunk, your derriere, o’ friend.

Let’s talk about your keister, your tuchus, your butt.
Let’s talk past the quarterbacks last count & hut-hut…

Word is, at 50 most folks should consider getting a colonoscopy done.
I am no such age yet nor do I imagine the procedure is much fun

but it’s a teller of what’s going on back there; a way to measure the sum
of -ish you ate yesterday that has or has not exited your bum.

Anywho, between me and you, I went to see a GI specialist the other day.
I marched my healthy arse in, knowing exactly where it’s been – to hear the doc’s say.

Who want’s to wait until 50 to get a peek
inside of the mounds that we call our seat?

Not me.
I insisted the doc take a peek

and he did oblige me with care.
He lit up his wand and went in my bum to see what’s up in there.

He looked twice
and asked if I’d like him to look thrice?

alien-butt-shaker

Not if twice is enough.
He was very gentle and not rough.

I really and truly appreciate that.
Upon retreating he concluded ‘I had a healthy ass.’

I’m paraphrasing of course, and the procedure was not a full body
scope of 6-ft bendable rope; it was not a complete C-scopy.

It was a short scope with a light
that went in for 2-3ft of insight.

There was nothing there.
My anus is secure beyond my mound-pair.

Sir Mix-Alot appreciates a firm-round and I’m happy to report,
that he hasn’t seen mine and I’m a healthy score.

What about you? Have you given any attention to your backdoor?
Beyond your lover checking it out; beyond the ball, the beads, and the oar?

Well, I’m not sure what you’re into.
Feel free to use whatever you want to

I’m good with that, I’m knocking at the human core.
I’m making sure to not be demure about the backdoor.

Are you bi-anal? It’s the perfect question to close with. 😛
I’m Qui
it’s the weekend baby and I’m a curious lady, how is your backend?
