Tuesday’s Timings

2 Cats at the moviesGood morning, good morning. How art thou today?
June 21st birthed Summer; let’s go out to play.

I’m duly on break from my collegiate affair
and confess that I’m rarely without a movie in my hair.

Not a man’s fingers or an offspring humdinger but hear me when I speak,
I have been averaging for the last 3-months about 3 movies a week.

Yes-yes! Ol’ AMC Theaters is getting a pretty fair cut.
I used to court Harkins until I joined AMC Stubs.

Yeah. It’s just a loyalty click with a roped-line appeal
and their awesome full body recliners have an “at home” feel.

Anywho, between me and you, I’m likely going to see another movie today.
I’ve seen AVENGERS, SUPERFLY, DEAD POOL, UNCLE DREW and a few more via satellite play.

So, yesterday I saw a satellite run of the film EXPOSED on SYFY tv,
starring The MATRIX’s Neo; ol’ Keanu Reeves.

The director of the film is credited as a man named Declan Dale,
after Gee Malik Linton filmed his vision and producers in editing shot it to hell.

Yes. It appears producers are “known for” pulling a PROUD MARY; also known as “puzzle-editing” after the shoots.
I always reference PROUD MARY to make a point about movies made at the miscalculation of loot.

It was clear to me as I sat in AMC to watch the debut of PROUD MARY,
that the acting talent was great, but none, in particular, seem to be able to carry

the films expected reputation.
Producers unintentionally invoke degradation

when they plan to reign over sequence play
after the film has been shot via the editing bay.

I remember the writers of BLAIR WITCH having been under a terrible strain,
regardless of their film concept – the producer’s financial grip was a pain.

The producers withheld crew pay just a little bit
until writers bent in creativity and yielded to their will.

The writers did bend to feed their family’s – ’tis true.
At the risk of the entertainment experience of me and you.

There was no sequel; no part two.
The film EXPOSED pull something like a Blair Witch Deux.

After hiring Linton to envision the script and film the tale
producers, in editing, rearranged the sequence of scenes;
forcing Linton to create the pseudonym: Declan Dale.

Now, why is this important? Once the artistic view is reeled who will protect her?
The vision of most scripts aren’t the writer’s dib but yielded to the director.

So unless the writer is the director and the producer too,
it is likely (and pretty darn highly) they’ll be vulnerable to the producer’s hue.

The producers have the money, honey!

Pockets so deep they risk swallowing creativity.

The best producers are artists and writers with financial fluid.
Either way, if big money is at play…
Rearranging a director’s view? The producer will do it.

It’s how the business works. Besides, producers are mostly known
for having a good gut feeling of what the people want reeling.
Producers co-sign and finance – if a film is to be shown.

So why then did producers change up the view of EXPOSED?
The original title was DAUGHTER OF GOD, so God only knows.

The film seemed to be presented as a composition of two different stories
with Spanish subtitles and a mass request to believe in conceptual glory.

I bit on the subtitle reading and I’m a believer in glory,
regardless of the re-arrangement of scenes in editing, I still enjoyed the story.

Though I hated to hear about how Declan Dale came to be a credited pseudonym name.
I suppose the timing is perfect to get an understanding; I’m studying the science of the game.

I’m a student of film; not a day goes by that I don’t see several flicks,
I’m Qui
Timing this Tuesday with thee to be reflective of a Digital Cinematography chick.

She is me and my movie viewing log is thick.
The first film today starts at 11:30. Wouldst thou come with?
By 5pm,  the two of us could have at least 2 films in.

Wind in these sails

wind-in-sailboatSo I’ve gone back to school and taken on quite the load.
I’m comparing each new lobe-wrinkle obtained to a brick of gold.

Learning is the route to the fountain of youth.
It feels good to learn new topics and their truths.

I’m submerging myself into the full learning process.
A little less contemplating & debating a whole lot more: YES.

I’m stepping out of my comfort zones, slowly but surely.
I’m trusting my instincts, shaping and branding my property.

You’d think I’d know these things by now.
I’d like to think ‘when it comes to media producing – I’m the cat’s meow!

But I don’t.
I move at will, and if I don’t get “the feel” – – I won’t.

The feel,” that I speak of is that feeling in my gut.
The feeling is strong; it doesn’t lead me wrong –
and while it is important, there’s a science to WHAT’S UP.

In this core course I am learning the science of creative presentation.
I am gathering new tools to further use in my future conveyance.

You and I are going to have so much fun playing! Tomorrow is looking good.
I’m studying Digital Cinematography. I want to shoot your hood.

Actually, I’m more of a writer, director and producer,
though when it comes to unlocking brain capacity – I’m a juicer!

How could more knowledge hurt?
I’m attracted to learning – with a full class load, I flirt.

And even though I’m out here having fun and mingling along the way,
please don’t think that I don’t think about you everyday.

Often times I clear the passengers seat, before my days charted run
just in case you want to tag along and ride a la shotgun.

Yeah, that would be fun. In the meantime I’m on my school grind,
but the week would be weak if I didn’t drop a few griot lines:

The Wordcloud Art is in the shape of an upwards arrow and encompasses this text:

Qui is Who, I love you, be encouraged & be strong, see things as different & not-wrong, open your mind & heart, each new day is a new start, follow your heart & manifest your dreams, sew a great story – hem up your seams, eat your vegetables & exercise your body, you are a hit – I love your spirit – you’re a hottie!

Yes, I’ve missed you. I truly have.
Let the wind blow through your hair, be sure to stop and laugh.

Hug someone today regardless of who needs it more.
You or them? Good karma is a good reason to score.

Good morning sweetheart, I pray the day does treat you swell.
I’m Qui
That “up early on her studies she,” — I’ve got new Wind in these sails.

Skosh

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on September 18, 2017 at 4:30 am

about this much…

Less than a dollar worth of change, the last of the milk, a half of piece of toast…
If it’s less than whole, less than 100% — chalk it up as skosh.

Me? I’m skosh-ghost. A little bit of nothing rarely lives here.
I’m a Costco chick, bulk is a hit; yet I’m skosh on the beer.

It makes my stomach bloated, a skosh – it’s not pretty, but it’s true.
I want to spend quality time and more than a skosh with you.

Anywho it’s a beautiful Monday Morning
and I’m several moments post my yawning.

I’m thinking again… yeah I’m brawn’ing.
My morns are filled with academic honing.

To the point –  I’ve been meaning to tell you I’ve gone back to school.
I felt a new Bachelors Degree in arsenal would be pretty cool.

I’m a content writer; a PSA filmmaker.
A degree in Cinematography would add to my money maker. 🤗

Just a skosh.
Tho skill wise I plan to milk it the most.

A new degree and little ol’ me….
Surely you can recall — school does it for me!
Yes sir and Oui!!! Education is always key!

Sure — I already work in the field but it’s always good to know
The roles of as many as possible – as least a skosh.

Good Morning Monday! I don’t know much more than I’m loving you, right now.
I’m Qui
On a high. I’ve got the future in my eye… well a skosh of it, anyhow.
