Falling into something a little more comfortable

It Feels Good...

It Feels Good…

Like The QUEEN LATIFAH SHOW. Have you been tuning in to the daytime flava? It’s pretty good. Queen is a pisces, so she’s a chameleon by sign rite therefore, that makes her a natural at talking to anyone about anything.

I love the show. This week she had Zoe Saldana on the show, which is interesting because I’ve been wondering whatever happened to the Nina Simone biopic project? I have always been a fan of Zoe’s work and was very verbal about not agreeing with her choice to play Nina Simone in the unauthorized biopic, sometime back. I’m not sure whatever happened to that project, but I want to be clear, that I absolutely love Zoe Saldana as well as Queen Latifah for “putting her on” (giving Zoe a social conversation platform) this week on The Queen Latifah Show – it was some good stuff.


.
Zoe is preggo with twins! Did you know that? Well, I did not. Did you know that she is starring in THE BOOK OF LIFE and that it is in theaters right now? I did not know that either. Not because I’m not keeping up with the beautiful latina actress from Queens, but because, well… these days, movie trailers get far too little advertisement time on television. When did we decide that movie trailer enticement was no longer necessary on tv as much as it is online and on youtube? Nothing is worse than being force fed a random movie trailer, while desperately trying to get clarification on how to fix an editing software glitch via a youtube HOW TO video.  However, I would love to see a movie trailer on television during a commercial break of SCANDAL, EXTANT, or HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER. Bring back enticing movie trailers to network television dear Hollywood. If for no other reason than to increase your bottom line.  After all, isn’t that what it’s all about?

There are a lot of things we would not know of unless it were advertised or unless someone told us, which is why I watch The Queen Latifah Show, The View, The Talk, and as soon as I’ve an additional free daytime DVR slot, I’ll be recording The REAL TALK on BET. Are you watching it? I happened to drop in mid episode one morning during a channel surf and saw Tamar Braxton, Tamera Morrow and Loni Love sitting at the table and it caught my attention. BET is boldly going where no other talk show has gone before and has added a 3rd black woman at the talk show table format. The View was the progressive shiz when they put two black women on deck, but 3? BET is serious about definition. 😉

Daytime TV is doing alright
Diversifying the view beyond mostly white.

I see Rosie Perez is poised pretty nice
as Whoopi continues to serve insight.

It’s important to have diversity within ‘talk show glory,’
or I might not have come-up on Zoe Saldana’s rooted story.

No one has been interviewing Zoe on any kind of show,
so when I think of The Queens courtesy, I yell a resounding “YO!”

Zoe is beautiful, Zoe is bright.
Zoe’s a huge talent in the incoming tide.

Zoe is being offered all types of roles,
some lack match, but most are gold.

The game isn’t free and by all accounts it must be sold.
The Queen did her thing on daytime tv and hosted the talk of Zo’.

The season of FALL is upon us and I’m happy to be Falling into something more comfortable,
I’m Qui
always glad to talk-it-out with thee, because news stations be on ‘that dumpster bull.

The EXTANT of things…

Extant dillusionsIt’s a good thing I brought up EXTANT, because tonight is a 2-hour broadcast.
Set your DVR and do set it fast,
for on the EAST COAST, it has already started
and less than an hour from now, it’ll all be departed.

Are you watching?

Also, in keeping with the loose meaning of EXTANT
I think the perfect segue is “breath versus pant.”

So you survive Hump Day during the 9-5,
duly thanking glad that you’re still alive

then just at 5, a new list of demands —
please be reminded to breathe and not pant.

Panting will surely cause your blood pressure to rise.
Instead breathe and exhale the most creative surprise.

Surprise yourself in your work-ethic response;
Consider yourself a skilled fish in an pretty quaint pond.

Remember it’s your duty to survive and surpass all.
Let EXTANT be your new beck that seekers do call.

Plugged IN Concert 2014Suit up! There’s a party going down and QUI FILMS will be reeling the mix!
Please tell me you’re coming out to Chandlers PLUGGED IN Concert event?

It’s free to the public, so if you’re going to be in the Phoenix metroplex
you definitely want to click this link and come out to JAM and connect.

Plenty of networking will be in the house – for networking is way cool.
Come out and meet the good folks at Green World or Rock n Roll High School.

Come ROCK OUT to the teen bands that you’ve surely heard
will be performing Friday night along side of INJURY RESERVE.

Yes! I will be in the house. Friday is only several hours away,
I’m Qui
and we can’t get to Friday without a little mid week word play.

EXTANT
is the word of the day!
(drop in on the show too)

Tuesday Morning Special

In Communication, Griot, Sports, TV Shows on July 29, 2014 at 5:51 am

Ring The Bell – For The NFL

output_R4g54y

Yes! Yes! I’m so glad it’s football season
for the vibe that fans release – is my chief reason.

I’m not a STAT’s girl, but I love the unity
that comes with football season. It’s really good to me.

Though I must admit, I had to look twice
at the headline news on Ray Rice.
Aye-yai-yai!

After the security video footage shows
his gf had taken a 1-2-punch 4-doze,
somewhere beyond the elevator door,
and then exited knees down, face to the floor.

No. It’s not good press. No gain or get-ahead.
Now Whoopi’s under review for what she said.

ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith apologizes for comment made on Ray Rice’s situation

Whoopi isn’t defending Ray for knocking his girlfriend out,
she’s stressing, HIT NO-ONE lest you risk being knocked out.

Be it girl or be it boy – put your hands on no man
or you too, may realize an unconscious knee-2-face land.

——————————
It’s true. It ain’t pretty.
Betting on chivalry – is a pity.
—————

And so on this Tuesday Morning, I bid you early
to hit no man – especially if he’s burly.

FAR OUT with HALLE BERRY

EXTANT

Okay, please tell me that you are still watching
CBS’s EXTANT? It’s cinema-show-stopping.

Each week get’s better and better
The writing is so cold – I watch wearing a sweater.

I’m kidding. I’m kidding. It’s way too hot to cover up,
though I am still curious as to whose baby is in ‘the cut?’

Molly’s fetus is growing and the galactic ring symbols are concerning.
I mean, Molly always wanted a baby, but by an alien, isn’t what she was yearning.

Or is it an alien co-breed at all? Her friend, Alan, is acting up.
I’m trying to hear what he’s saying, but I don’t feel at ease, to trust.

We know he’s keeping something about his friend and her body.
But why not divulge all — when clearly asked by Molly?

Good God o’ mighty. I’m certainly filled with proclivity.
Dare I say, I’m scared away by good writing and cinemactvity?

I am not.
This stuff is HOT!

Please REMEMBER NOVEMBER

 

20111115-080206.jpg

November will be 10 years old on October 15, 2014. Besides old age, he’s suffering from the effects of Valley Fever.

It is indeed Tuesday Morning and I feel Special to be alive.
I could’ve lost my life last Saturday evening on a routine highway drive.

I’m so happy to be here, WordPress kin. So happy to be here with you.
I’m sipping a cup of jo, I’ve already eaten a waffle or two.
Ooo!

I’m feeling real good on this morning, though November, my dog, isn’t.
He’s still with me, for the moment; approaching a decade with me and him.

I woke up yesterday morning, preparing to do my Monday blog write
only to find November on the rectified laundry room floor, barely alive.

I did consult a vet and the vet did duly say
November has lived a good life, and his exit is on the way.

I don’t know what more to say. My kid is trying her best to be strong.
She doesn’t want to euthanize – and I concur.  Are we wrong?

We have another vet appointment tomorrow – I suppose then I’ll face my fears.
Do keep November in your prayers. I know his end is near.

And with that, I move on. Today will be the best Tuesday that I can render,
I’m Qui
feeling quite Special this Morning. I am the #PositivePushing defender.

The interest in EXTANT

In Griot, Networking, TV Shows on July 11, 2014 at 8:04 am

Please tell me that you met Ethan? He’s Molly and John Woods AI son. Moreover that, have you seen the new series EXTANT that CBS premiered Wednesday, July 9th? Well, you can take my word for it, they are on some 6TH DAY stuff here; they are on some GRAVITY parallel (in character career) stuff here — and I like it.

This television series plays out a like a movie and Halle is perfect for the part. She plays Molly an astronaut who after returning from a 1-year solo mission in space is told by her doctor that she is pregnant. Apparently prior to the last mission Molly was suffering from infertility, thus encouraging the demand for the AI son her genius scientist husband co-created and programmed. This show has all of the ingredients of a good SCIFI show and I’m so glad it is born, there’s so much mystique in the storyline. I’m watching it on DVR as I type. You have no idea how glad I am to have this show in the line up. Are you watching? CBS is looking like more than a YOUNG and The RESTLESS type-of-situation right now. They can have my days and my nights if they keep pumping out stuff like this, at least until I figure out how Molly got pregnant on that solo mission?

Are you watching?
Extant - MOLLY

What about ETHAN, you ask? Good question. I’ve got all kinds of questions about his programming. Near the end of the show, he started tripping. What was with all the “NO’s” he was giving Molly, all because he dropped his ice cream cone and wanted a new one? Never mind the fact that Molly offered him hers.  What was with Ethan running off into the forest? And why did he feel the need to stop at the dead bird altar to tell Molly, “I found it this way“? Was that a “programmed response”, and if so, to what? Surely his program is not prompted to respond, “I found it this way,” after taking random and brisk runs. What sense would that make? Well, I’ve got the DVR set for next Wednesday because I’ve got way too many questions.

Extant - ETHAN

AI is progressing along well, therefore, I’d like not to think
that much like dinosaurs, humans are on the chop block of ‘extinct.’

However, in its early show stages, I think the writers may be leading us there,
shock tv may be dead – but human extinction is new reason to prep with care.

AI will not replace us. We are the programmers of the heart.
How could we let this happen if there was ever any chance, from the start?

EXTANT is just getting started. The first broadcast aired this week,
I’m Qui
Kudos to the shows creators; the concept is reel sweet,
and alas our Hump Day heaps will be blessed with more network treats.

Watch EXTANT on CBS, Wednesday nights 9/8
