Its KEY

And Today is

Today is the beginning of another week of winning. I’m an early bird on the grinning, due to my nocturnal dream and the romp-winning 

that it entailed. I remember doing kegels and parallels. Today is going to be swell; I’m happy to be alive and I hope that you’re well.

Do tell if you watched the VMA awards? Were you satisfied with the winners and did the musical acts go hard? 

I didn’t watch it, but I read all about it. Headlines say ‘Gaga was the  -ish, and I don’t doubt it. 

The Weekend took home video of the year; best composition of scene — Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande took home best video during quarantine. 

KeKe Palmer was the show host, I do enjoy her vibe. I hate I missed the VMA’s; headlines read like it was live. 

And Today will exceed the weekends hype because you’ve got your health and you’re still alive.

I’m up early feeling a party-type vibe. In the season of Virgo I’m thinking of Fab5.

Today is his annual born day; in essence his pre-party was the VMA’s.

Michael Jackson‘s born day was 2-days ago and Bey’s birthday will be in fo.’

Virgo, o’ Virgos, we love you so. Your perfection plays out well in most award shows. 

And so today will surely follow the Virgoan suit. Power to the people who bear wheat and produce fruit. 

Happy Monday to you, as well as to all of the zodiac signs,

I’m Qui

And Today’s Virgo breeze is the best of its kind!

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.

Good Morning Monday

No Stress – is always best!

Good Morning Monday! I love you, and as soon as I opened my eyes —
I was delighted to see you, excited to breathe. Ooo! So glad to be alive.

And so 4am came quick – it feels like I just laid down.
I remember lulling off with a smile and waking up with a frown.

No, I’m not mad it’s just that last night was a hard lay.
I mean, you should see my hair – a coiffed mane despair – I’m not Beyoncé.

But hey the day is young and I am happy.
My hair is un-permed, strong, soft and nappy.

qui-nappy-happy

I woke up like this! 🙂

The sun is not yet up and already, I’m in pursuit to go. <
I’ve drank my lemon water, now I’m working on my jo.

Oh! Today is poised to be a winner! <
I do love Mondays – a natural beginner.

A straight-away kick-starter. <
Corsets, strings and belts of garter,

ice-cube-writing

Write your own story today.

Binds of writes score well in barter. <
Do your research, be efficient, work smarter.

Yes, things could be harder but only if you yield that way. <
Put no energy into negativity on this beloved day.

Good Morning Monday! I’m so very glad to see you again!
I’m Qui
a naturally happy she – ready to embrace you; another begin.

Yes-Yes,
Bring it in!

I’m PROUD like…

In Communication, Griot, News, TV Shows on February 2, 2017 at 6:39 pm

I’m PROUD like I’m a brand new auntie or something…
Bey said she is prego and since then, I’ve heard nothing —

from the side chicks with short wicks who were looking for a quick fuse
Jay-Z is nourishing a new 2-piece and likely won’t have time for the #GoldDiggerBoo.
Ooo.

bey-jayz.jpg

To me, that’s good news! I did not want the power CARTERS to break up.
I mean I loved me some LEMONADE but all I needed was one cup.

I was praying the tangy-ness would wake Mr. Jay-Z up.
A billionaire with a lot of flair; it’s not odd to be temped to cut-up.

beys-bambinos-2017You know American history. I am not here to re-sell it.
I’m that GRIOT SHE: Qui.  I’m just here to tell it.

I’m PROUD for the Carters, like I’m Auntie Qui or something.
This is the kind of PERUSE I like in the NEWS
because lately, there’s been nothing.

#MyNiece in Keller, TX is in love and is getting married in a week.
She’s my only niece on this family wing and she asked me to reception Emcee.
Ooo wee.

I’ve got my work cut out for me, though I’ve been around.
Give me the mic, and I’ll give you what you like —
MizQui is known to hold no bars and straight clown.
Yes honey! (Snap-Snap!) I get’s down. 😀

I’m PROUD because it’s an honor to entertain via personality say
among family, friends and non blood-kins on such a blessed betrothing day.

The count down is on and I have my part to play.
I’m PROUD to be kicking it with you. What are you up to today?

Watching any good television? You have!? You might?
Well don’t forget HBO will be broadcasting BILL MAHER tonight.

john-luther-idris-elba.jpgPlanning to stay in and cop an R&R fix?
I recommend a friend, snacks, liq and Netflix.

I recently watched a show with intellectual twists that delightfully cut through ya,
It stars Idris Elba playing the role of [Gov.] Police Captain John LUTHER.

LUTHER” is the name of the show and it was ruthless to its scripts core.
It had more deaths in its establishing episodes than I remember in FOX’s 24.

Woo! Remember that?
When we first met Jack.
Folks were dropping so fast,
I wondered how the show could last.

Good times.

Today is a fine day to feel PROUD about yourself.
It’s Friday – a likely payday, may you #ComeUP on your wealth.

This day is a full one for me as I’m hammering this piece out #OnTheRun,
I’m Qui
I’m PROUD about WE, enjoy yourself today and cop some fun.

Life is short and TIME is refundable to none.

Embrace the point

In Communication, Griot, News on December 21, 2016 at 5:57 am

the5whysFeeling good, I did both – turn in and wake up happy.
Like Bey said, “I woke up like this,” – complete with hair: nappy,
and I’m happy y’all.
I sashayed to the bathroom and danced in the hall
the moment my feet touched the floor.
Today is a new day and I am poised to score.

I woke up today thinking about you.
Some of the things folks say behind your back – can’t be true. 😀
I’m sweet on you and so is your mother,
how’s your family, your kids, your sister, your brother?

It’s Hump Day baby and I’m conversation surfing.
I’m up early feeling girly and deep griot wording.

If you’re into morning nookie – I can do a little twerking,
but you’ll have to make it quick I have to leave by six –
I’m a woman about my business, I love flirting before working.

It’s surely morning and I’m feeling good.
Daddy’s up like I knew he could.

We stayed up pretty late, and him – later still.
He woke up to breakfast in bed because I keep it real.

layers-eatworld-1-artist1010

Are you into Layers? Artist 1010 has got you covered. Click the image to visit his studio.

I’m happy today and I’ve missed you over the last two days.
Are you digging this weather? Are you out to layer slay?

Me? I’m in the A-Z and I’m layering sleeveless shirts.
I arm a sweater, the shoes of a go-getter and reasonably tailored skirts.

Arizona winters deserve all of “the hypes” worth.
Beyond reason I push many winter short skirts.

It’s morning again. Thank God we can all say as much.
Some aren’t reading this – some didn’t wake up.

Some aren’t living ‘as happy’ because of menial circumstance.
Those are the one’s who know life – but lack understanding ‘the dance.’

The details don’t matter; don’t withhold your happiness just because
you are pissed off at being dissed off by someone you dearly love.

Nothing is worth squandering love – no trivial score should thrive.
Love is actually the cure to all; nourish it for your personal survive.

Well, it’s 5 minutes after 5am and I truly am feeling good at onset,
I’m Qui
Humping Happy, waking up, hair nappy – ready to embrace this point of: YES .

The TALK —

OH my word and oh no!
What’s going on with those Osbourne folk?

I’m not an avid fan of The TALK show
but I do watch it on the occassional to and fro

but yesterday, yo! — I was saddened to hear at the table
that Ozzy and Sharons betrothed union isn’t so stable.

Well, Ozzy isn’t sick, as in health, that’s for damn sure,
but he is in some sort of crisis that calls for a “wait and see” cure.

I’m not so sure if you’ve heard of, but chances are that you have
The rift at the Osbourne home is certainly nothing of which to laugh.

osbournes-split-2016.gifOzzy and Sharon have been married for nearly 34 years
and now a 45-year old make-up artist is being blamed for new jeers.

Well not “blamed for” but “pointed out” – and Monday Mrs. Osbourne was absent from work.
Few things in life are certain, and when consistency breaks – it hurts.

Sharon has breast cancer and is facing the trials of her life —
Ozzy is in a position similar to where John Edwards was with his wife.

My goodness. Is it ‘mid life strife?‘ What is going on during the long haul?
I’m pretty inquisitive because I’ve been on the trail a while, y’all.

I suppose any time two human beings who are different decide to – in matrimony, come together,
we should respect their choices and processes to storm out their relationship weather.

I agree.
So that’s the news. Now let it be.

on-a-rant.jpg

I don’t think the same standard will be held or given to the Clinton’s
Trumps dowsing his stump with Bills yesterdays — the presidential UN-mentions.

But Hill’s an old pro and this won’t bother her.
Angela Bassett and Bey will be there to coddle her…

I pray the former first lady is sipping Lemonade and Waiting to Exhale
and gives, in the general election, the hair disturbing Donald Trump hell.

On higher ground in November in the state of Arizona, legalizing MMJ will be on the ballot.
I know a lot of folk verbally oppose but are secretly smoking from a bowl-like chalice.

To them, I say, “Suck a phallus.”
Blame my tactful speech on my being from Dallas.

IN OTHER NEWS —

It seems that the Trumped up rhetoric outlasted other Republican candidates
and that Donald is mounted on prides rock to head up the Republicans race.

He is their face now and many may not like it.
Politics has always been nasty, Drumpf only spiked it.

My charged task is to “write it” and so I’m doing my part.
I think Trump just wants more popularity and BEING PRESIDENT is not in his heart.

He’s an outstanding business man by failures overcome
but that does not qualify him to run the United States sum.

gwbush-guys.gifG.W. Bush was a business man and we gave him two terms
and while he led a corporate as a civilian – he gave us 2 burns.

He was surrounded by big heads who wanted to be in the seat where he sat.
They had their intentions and he was just an indention – so on his legacy ‘they spat.’

Recent history and conditions note his terms and now President Obama is closing his two.
The country is split on ‘how well he did it.’ Personally, I’m going to hate to bid him adieu.

It’s true. And perhaps a lot has gone wrong during his term but so much has gone right.
Who knew that any type of universal health plan would ever see true daylight?

It isn’t perfect but the platform has a purposeful passion.
Let time and amended law shape the necessaries it into action.

I absolutely believe in us. We can do it! We can do it!
The worst has been conquered – President O pulled us through it!

We now have car insurance and health insurance — because the law said it’s so.
It may not be perfect, but it will still ‘fix you up’ – yo!

Still the Republican party is sick and Trump won’t be bidding anyone adeiu.
Paul Ryan ain’t crying, but he did he say, ‘he’ll step aside of Trump asks him to.’
Oooo.

I’m paraphrasing but in context – I’m pretty dead on.
I may not be a Paul Ryan fan, but his reaction to Trump isn’t wrong.

Ain’t nobody up for being punk’ed especially while being the speaker in charge.
Pray for the elephants in the room. Their issues go hard.

Bernie and Hillary aren’t in a love fest either.
If Bernie’s energy could burn, it would probably feel like Ether.

He so wants to be the nominee. I know –and it isn’t over.
But it’s highly unlikely that he’ll be the nominated sewer.

He’s got bold ideas and I like that a lot.
Though Hillary, [Fmr. Secretary of State] will likely win the spot.

And not because her wardrobe is hot – if I were a better, I’d bet
that most of her campaign outfits were inspired by ol’ Star Trek.

Aw, what the heck! HIllary’s got odd fashion and Trump’s got odd hair.
Politics is starting to look like love and war – but we know ALL is not fair.

And so nothing is new when it comes to this race.
November is fast approaching PREPARE for the polls to see your face.

VOTE!

About Us —

And so, here we are again, still with life, fam and friends.
Still employed; bringing in ends. Still meditating and avoiding “the sin.”

All of this is very good my friend
and so, you and I, we’ll continue to strive for ‘the win.’

screenplayMe? I’m over here on these scripts. I’m birthing new pages daily.

Yay WE! We have so much to look forward to.
I’m out here doing me – you’re out here doing you.

The REEL Players

black-excellence-2016.png

Every now and then I fancy the BOOK of FACES, and the month of February thus far has proven to be awesome in finding cool video bytes. I’ve watched what seems like millions of them, I’ve seen cat videos, kids throwing tantrum videos, folk throwing blows videos and a few other that made me say ‘my God and Oh-ohhhh!‘ but none got me lit more than this piece. They are students at VCU (Virginia Commonwealth University) and it’s obviously no secret that the word-of-the-month around campus is #BlackExcellence. In the spirit of the very meaning of the #hashtag meet Terry, Terrance and John… I love these guys. They lead todays highlight of The REEL PLAYERS:

pride

Sometimes it’s not enough to just be suited  up, proper and proud,
sometimes you have to go primetime and say it loud:

Screen Shot 2016-02-17 at 7.33.40 PM.png

Like Beyonce did at SUPER BOWL 50.
The meaningful comprise of FORMATION is quite nifty.

Screen Shot 2016-02-17 at 7.33.50 PM.png

Love her or hate her – she means business and I am most convinced
she qualifies to rank in file among #BlackExcellence.

You know how I feel about those who serve up that “tactful real”
and Beyonce’s Super Bowl performance took the cake in “historic appeal.”

But she’s not the only one in this game to win it. She’s not the only one who dares to be bold
so let’s bring back this young dude whose got  fitness in the sack at 70+ years old:

You heard the man. You heard what he said,
get off of the couch, “too old” is ONLY in your head.

Me? I’m just getting started.
A lifestyle of fitness isn’t for the faint hearted.

But whose really fainting? Certainly not you –
so get on up and take a 20-min walk… maybe two.

It’s good for you, in fact take the selfie stick and film through it,

A REEL PLAYER and avid observer – so when you DO IT get into it.
