Yes-Yes! We are blessed with another weekend!
An opportunity for me to do my thing and SHE binge.
So where in the world is Susan Sarandon?

I’ve got a script to clean up and shoot.
Pardon me, not just one but two. This is what I do.

I’m that “play with the camera lady.”
Mess with my shot, the set-up on my lot –
and ”Waa-waa-waa!!! I’m Lil Baby. “😜

I like that lil ol ‘ jam that Drake has with Lil Baby.
It’s Friday, a get-live day, and I’m that high-on-God lady.

I ain’t studying them dudes on that committee
who are enraged, creating a farce of a stage – I’ve got God with me.

And you don’t have to believe in Him. I do. He’s the highest clout.
Come midterms enjoy the binders of women who will vote you out.

bell-toll-grim-reaperOh, and to those women on the committee who may vote Bart in,
It’s good to know Your Name and Faces when we recall the sin.

We’re coming for you, too via the polls in the end.
I love you, I do – but you’re no help old girlfriend.

We are women facing another weekend.
Literally, I’m taking it all in.
I suppose the “girl hate” didn’t dissipate at Hillary’s end…

That’s too bad. Personally, I need women.
When will Beyonce’s Formation request kick-In?

Ladies, If Bart O’ Kavanaugh gets in by tomorrow,
womens reproductive rights will be an issue of sorrow.

Don’t fall prey to this; do not choke.
November will bring with “the midterm jiz;”
Ladies we need to vote!

It’s the weekend ladies. Are you going out to march?
I’m Qui
In studio filming, supporting you with my cash and my heart.

Be smart.
Be Proactive.

 

The One Who Smelled it Dealt it

farting.gif

Unbearable.

I remember that saying from the early days of being a child.
It was the going-response when a foul smell was on the prowl.

The phrase was used to halt suspicion; a verbal deflection from the smell emitter.
Still, it didn’t deter the gas that came to pass; farters aren’t quitters.

But farters are the ones who deal the gas,
then they announce the funk followed by a weak laugh.

The laugh ends with them saying, “It wasn’t me.”
To farters, the attempt to deflect is always key.

The air is assaulted and all of their peers realize quick–
It’s so obvious that the one who smelled it dealt it.

This phrase is re-emerging and I am not a child.
Kavanaugh assaulting women and being offended at the recollection is wild.
He cries foul.

Any chance that you saw SNL?
Matt Damon to the coffin was the nail:

The prez bragged about grabbing women by the “P,”
then defends Kavanaugh’s innocence; wanting me to believe.

He’s crying foul for the farting child because he smells a lot like him.
If the Judiciary man-pack can’t see past their scrotum sacks
our justice system is gravely grim.

Are you still praying to God for a situational hem? I am.
Because when it comes to respecting women, America doesn’t give a damn.

They” are not alone in their actions, take a look around the world.
A lying male child is worth your while; to hell with an honest girl.

Do I take it personally? Yes, I do, just a little bit.
I’m like Janet Jackson – cock-eyed biases make me sick.

Get this right America, or that smell will lay claim to your ass,
I’m Qui
and America’s lack of wisdom is comparable to dirty-booty gas.

You think respecting women equally will unleash some kind of hell?
Consider that more women are voting for women to avoid sack smell.

What’s This About

In Music, News, Video on September 27, 2018 at 4:40 am

It’s all about the music.
If you have the talent – please use it:

If you have a radio interview invite with Charlamagne Tha God, then take it.
If you have to respond to Eminem’s Diss Track to clap back – you have to make it:

What’s This About? This is about word skill.
Rap started in Harlem but the “M’s” keep it real.

The American Music Awards
are slated to go hard!

Beyonce, The Carters, Niki Minaj nor Arianna Grande made the list.
Cardi B and Drake are on the UPTAKE because they’re the radio’s jizz:

Life moves fast and all is not always fair,
but don’t tell that to THE TALK‘s melodic billionaire.

Eve is on the scene – and you know that she doesn’t play.
Eve is like ol’ Blue Eyes, she does things her way.

I love her new face; hands down – she looks fantastic!
Terry Dubrow must have had an opening and Eve snagged it.

She is the epitome of life-melody as none of the usual music moguls helped her in her rise.

When your truth is too true

FACT: The title of this piece was provided by a person who was self-evaluating. And no, the person was not me.

Brutally honest folks who mean well should consider the following information before each honest delivery:

“Truth and honesty without compassion is brutality.”

decorative-line-divider1

I suppose I should know,
I’m an honesty-wielding Leo.

Yessir, and yes ma’am, -I’m confessing to you kinfolk:
with retrospection and honesty, I can impale another’s throat.

I often preface  though, “the following won’t be pretty, but it is honest reality…”
Often times the receiver is their best amen choir & believer – and may get mad at me.

Everybody wants honesty but not as it pertains to what they (themselves) do.
Right?
I cannot nourish your plight and recommend A FEW GOOD MEN for movie night –
because “you can’t handle the truth.”

I dig ol’ Bader Ginsburg, Ruth and McKinnon, Kate of SNL.
When it comes to lasting impersonations, Kate brings the judicial hail.

Still, I’ve always known that my most honest deliveries could use a little more tact.
I thank my mom for my compassionate heart and my dad for holding nothing back.

I am indeed Redd’s daughter; I am honest and I preface – please do not take offense.
I’m Qui
‘loving the honest quote that I heard on TV. I’m working on me and the quote makes good sense.

What show was I watching? Well, now that’s a good question.
This show is the best yo, it’s called MARRIED TO MEDICINE.

The truth and honesty quote is stronger than an espresso brew.
If you’re not a sugar-coater of truth, does this quote at all apply to you?

Absolutely Cellophane

In Communication, Griot, Music, News, Self Improvement, Video on August 20, 2018 at 4:11 am

Who’s the Navy Bean today?

I’m looking towards the future and I can see it clear and plain.
I’m putting in the work to increase the skill capacity of my worth;
my moves are cellophane.

You could call me vain, but I’d only argue that you’re a lot like me.
With all that you’re doing in your life to not live trife?
I wouldn’t label that vanity.

To prepare for the future is to operate within sanity. That’s you and me, main.
Show your hand; how do you plan to lead your band? Make your intentions cellophane.

It’s Monday morning again. I arose with no hidden agenda.
The week is young and Omarosa still has her gun.
In media wrestling, she’s no beginner.
The Whitehouse is really hoping to pin her
to the mat
for being a Republican and being Black.

But what I’m finding is that Blacks are familial pansies.
They may not like Omarosa much, but heck! She’s still family.

She’s making her rounds
sharing receipts via audio sound.

Omarosa is out making waves.
She’s dirty, yet quite cellophane.

Have you heard?

I’m looking towards the future and with my pen, I’m shaping reel.
I’m looking at the people; they’re looking to the hill.

The Whitehouse is piping hot, like tea and looks like it’s about to spill.
I really thought I’d craft a fictional piece, but I’m heavily leaning towards the real.

Life. It is but a necessary game.
It must be played – the consequences are made.
People pretend to be cellophane

until the legend becomes a fact.
Omarosa has audiotapes and folks, that is that.

Whether it proves any leaders to be in the damnation of wrong, is yet to be heard in any direct frame,
I’m Qui
Good Monday morning to thee, avoid miscalculated pains. Live like a Vegas dealer; live cellophane.

Trying to walk back loose-conversation is confusions reign.

Regardless of the Talib

In Communication, Griot, Music, Networking, News, Politics, Self Improvement, Video on August 10, 2018 at 12:58 am

The Talib’s do excellent groundwork

I dig a couple of pretty awesome people whose names sound the same but are spelled differently: Talib Kweli and Rashida Tlaib. I recently became introduced to Rashida Tlaib via her recent news headlines. Rashida is running for Congress in Michigan. You may remember her from being kicked out of the GOP nominations campaign rally in 2016. Rashida said of that event,

“I told Trump that “our children deserve better” and I asked him to provide a better example to our kids. I implored him to read the U.S. Constitution. And then I was grabbed by several security personnel who physically moved me to the exit while I continued to express my concerns.”

She was right and that was two years ago. My, how time flies when you’re making sense of things in the world. It’s certainly no day at the beach but it is a party to and for common sense holders.

Which brings me to the other Talib: Talib Kweli has been holding common sense court on Twitter single-handedly for a little while now. He’s patient in his Twitter tone and delivers ‘aha moments’ wrapped in wisdom.

Any chance that you are following his timeline of inspiring quotes, comments and wisdom notes? Check him out, if only because a little bird told you and then approach doing so with an open mind & heart because Talib Kweli, much like Rashida Tlaib is about unity through understanding your community.

Who wants to live life misunderstood because they had a misunderstanding? It doesn’t make sense, but this jam does:

happy divider

The Talib’s are important in any progressive story.
Each in search of unity and less narcissistic glory.

I like them both. They mean business and we need it.
Is diversification necessary? Learn it and heed it.

The world is changing rapidly, still with you in control; you have the power to vote and are still at the helm.
Take notice of who your neighbor is, whose shaping your politics and whose forming the care of your health.

It matters.
Don’t let your good head be scattered.

Get to know The Talib’s. They are your neighbors; they are you and me,
I’m Qui
and there’s some good out there, Regardless of the Talib.

A Mundane Reign

In Communication, Griot, Music, Networking, News, Self Improvement, Video on August 8, 2018 at 5:31 am

dictionary_mundane.png

Mundane is not what we have here. Nothing remains the same.
Every since late 2016 we’ve been in a comparable acid rain.

You may not like the way things are, but who really wants mundane?
Melee keeps you on your toes, eh? Commit to vote; commit to change.

It’s day 3 and everything is up for the take.
There was a special election last night that kept many awake.

Ohio candidates: Balderson and O’Connor were the political sayers.
Voters went to the poll to voice their souls, but no one called The Ohio Players.

What’s up with that?


Anywho, O’Connor went after Balderson’s truths. T’was a pretty tall horse to mount.
Franklin County is still weighing in – will there be enough provisional ballots to win?
— It’s likely these two will have a recount.

Congrats to the ultimate winner.
Godspeed on running again in November.

The midterms are coming in just a few months.
The Summers are hell in AZ; I crave Fall a bunch.

The heat is not mundane – not even a little bit.
I don’t know about you, but we’re in triple digits

every single day.
To not combust, is what I pray.

My collegiate curriculum keeps me indoors and alert.
Michael Hauge shapes script understanding and frames my work.

Script writing is hardly mundane. There’s always 5 turning points to be made.
Entertainment and morale will be woven-in like a sheets percale
with a hint of lust and shade.

Mundane doesn’t make the page. It reigns too often and I am into change,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee and creativity. Let us forego A Mundane Reign.

Life is too short to spare anytime to that vein.

BATW

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement, Video on July 25, 2018 at 1:13 am

one-lie-is-enough-to-question-all-truths.pngBATW is an acronym for Back Against The Wall. I could have easily used the term “between a rock and a hard place” to describe the point of desperation one might reach when they have no plan but have been given the microphone, a platform, and suspect of colluding with a foreign government.

decorative-line-divider1

In the event that you encounter a situation in life where you’re in a self-inflicted bind,
man-up to what you’ve done then utilize integrity & morale — but don’t lie.

Perhaps when you’re in a BATW moment and you have realized that you are wrong,
take a second to recap and reflect — then recall the words of this song:

Teach it to your wife, your kids, your neighbors on the right, and the left;
let integrity lead your conscience and know that honesty is always best.

It’s mid-week already and I’m eager to hump onto something with more integrity and overview.
I’m Qui
Suggesting a new song for those crucial moments when our BATW.

Sinking Long Before Helsinki

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement, Video on July 18, 2018 at 7:34 am

sinking_quicksand.gifYes, the ground has been unstable since the presidential race started;
unclear if Donald’s totality of morale and honesty had long departed.

Access Hollywood blamed Billy Bush for being socially pushy
in defending himself that he had nothing to do with Don’s quote,
Grab ’em by the pussy.”

Donald went on to become the Republican’s nominee.
They chose him as if it wouldn’t cost this country a huge fee.

The move is threatening to our democracy. It could… but it shouldn’t.
Don confirms his belief in Russia with the double-negative “don’t and wouldn’t.”

A strong man stands on his word
and is clear to be heard.

Therefore, Putin spoke his piece with clarity and no misunderstanding.
Don stood there like all in the world was lovely and fair;
the phrase “fire him now!” is increased; public demanding.

We’re restrained and sinking in quicksand.
Does not the branches of government independently stand?
I pray they get it together today because we could use a helping hand.

YES, WE CAN!

President 44 spoke on the state of our union yesterday morn.
Remarking that our way of politics is looking tattered and torn.

He‘s honest and he’s on it. Integrity? It’s a trait that he beholds.
I appreciate the sentiments but I’d like more for him to get us out of this hole.

“Ugh.” Is what my daughter always says, when something is waxing old,
I’m Qui
Good morning Wednesday.  Lend us a hump to get out of this hold.
Together WE CAN do this. I’ve got your back, kinfolk. beating-heart

Oh Boy

In Griot, Music, News, Politics, Video on July 13, 2018 at 5:39 am

spanky_oh-boy.gifAnother glorious Friday! The weekends always yield me joy.
Though for what went uphill with Congress’ grill
of Agent Peter Strzok made me say, “Oh boy!

Did you get a chance to drop in and see it?
Strzok on the stand – I wouldn’t want to be him,

but he handled-up and told it like it was.
the statement he made about who the FBI is yielded him applause-love.

I was tuned in and little else ran in broadcast so steady.
For whatever the committee had planned for him, Strzok was prepared and ready.

I’m sure on Thursday morning Republicans in Congress felt confident that they would ‘bring the grill-filled noise,’
though they weren’t fully prepared for Strzok’s dismiss of their dares – he spoke bluntly and… Oh Boy!

Mr. Goodlatte was the chairman and his tone was on swoll
as he tried to conduct business like a boss but quickly lost control.

Democrats spoke-up in opposition of Goodlatte’s lead and the session went into rogue fashion.
Many began yelling about what Strzok would and wouldn’t be telling;
made me think of Cam’Ron & Santana…

Especially when Mr. Gohmert was questioning the Agent and brought up the agent’s wife.
That’s when I had to check the station, Gohmert’s tact was on vacation;
is he about that thug life?

Things in the hearing were pretty ripe. I enjoyed witnessing history unfold.
It really looked like fiction; I grew an instant concern and addiction.
Our country is in crisis — PLEASE VOTE!

Peter was grilled for about 8-hours, with a 2-hour lunch.
How many people tuned in with me? My guess is a bunch.

I almost changed the channel at its start, but I had a back-of-the-mind hunch.
Oh Boy! How many around the world tuned into the hurl? I reckon a whole bunch.

That was yesterday and this is today,
it’s Friday baby. Drop the cares and consider play.

I’m going to consider it immediately after my endearing collegiate ploy,
I’m Qui
On this glorious Friday, an intellectual high day – I pray thee not succumb to the Oh Boy‘s!

Congress started it but Peter Strzok brought the noise.
