Well Rested and Format Tested

euphoriaEvery day for the last two weeks I have been a “reel tenderoni.”
I’ve been courting Phoenix in cinematic bliss,
via my new FS5, Sony.

I have utilized the exposure triangle to capture “the shot.”
Saturday morning I filmed Tempe Lake at the 911 Memorial spot
and I’ve been a little emotional over the footage that I got.

The FS5’s capacity is yielding to be quite hot.
I like the way she reels, I’m beginning to love her, a lot.

I’ve been taking her everywhere that I go.
Passerbyers star in my ‘reeled traffic show.’


I can’t keep my hands off of her.

Some of which are handed my card during their to and fro.
Good talent is hard to find, you know?

But if you look-the-part and pose for the camera as you pass me
I’m likely to divvy my card with visions of collab’ing on a cash heap.

Art is not cheap so I’m into paying
if the subject is committed to reel slaying.

Though the scenes that I have been shooting as of late have been for school,
I still run QuiFilms where neverending networking is infinitely cool.

I spent the weekend shooting from sun up to sun down.
I’ve been spending the wee hours of every night sleeping rock-solid sound.

It’s a good trade-off.
The hot and dusty atmosphere invokes a cough.

Still, observing Earth’s atmosphere and all who live here truly works for me,
I’m Qui
Good morning baby. See the world through your beautiful lens and make it what you want to be.

Be sure to format your SDXC card before you leave for the day.
Be sure to format your life; this happens when you pray.


OBX early…

FullSizeRenderI’m out here on the OUTER BANKS,
GOOD NETWORKING deserves all the thanks.

It’s St. Patty’s Day and we’ve got all the dranks…
Don’t you wish you were in the OUTER BANKS?

OBX is what they call it.
An exit out of the mundane squallin’.

Running not crawling, we took a flight to H-town
’tis a layover between our DC bound,

then we hopped a flight and road the cloud scene
that landed us safely into Washington, DC.

Anxious to be on grounded soil but not kissing the flo’
we hopped a shuttle to transport us to the condo.

Day one, two, three, fo’ — we filmed the day
People coming to and fro and, most had something kind to say.

The National Mall was all that you thought it was and I really can not say
how much my heart was overwhelmed in visiting the monument of MLK.

Qui n MLK

Tears void of fear but of legacy, history and love.
Diverse were those around me — I felt evolution in the ))hug((.

There were middle school children on field trips and non-black teachers doing the talk.
The kids were traipsing through the mall and peeping my ethnic style of walk.

They stared, but I didn’t squawk. I don’t know where they’re from.
They could’ve been staring, because they were curious or caring, and not being rude or dumb.

So I smiled at each one that was locked in a trance staring duly at me.
I wasn’t wearing shades and stared them back in the face, once they saw the eyes of me,

and then I smiled with all of my pearly whites between lips on show.
That’s when their stare would cease and no looking at me – no ‘mo.

It was fun – yo!, they were innocent, though I had a feeling on that scene,
that those kids hadn’t seen many black folk, beyond the memorial of Dr. King.

The beauty of Washington, DC squinted out of view
as I rode out for OBX with the traveling film crew.

That was Sunday, today is Tuesday and in case you didn’t see,
I woke up to this scene at 6:53:


It’s beautiful in the OBX early and I’m happy to be #Reeling the onset of Spring,
I’m Qui
Taking you along with me while I film, shoot-the-bull and the do the dang thing.

Happy St. Patricks Day!
Sip one with me...

And the beat goes on…

Hello baby – how are you really doing?
Are you surviving this congressional screwing?

Are your wages low and the rent too damn high?
Are you enjoying the staple poverty in your life?

Are you so sick of being last – so sick you could choke?
Well 201 2 is your chance to speak out and vote.

Wall Street is hosting a protest as we speak.
The people are peaceful in lining up in the street.

It’s now 13 days past & they’re still in organize.
A commander is being investigated for pepper spraying eyes. *(click link see video)

The media footage that exploits it was taken this weekend,
The brutality is so raw, it looks like 1968 again;

However the bullied protesters this time have white skin.
Ah-ha! Let the UNCIVIL investigation begin .

Herman Cain is doing his thang in the GOP run,
But he won’t win the nomination grin – he’s for good ideas and fun.

Disrespect? I mean absolutely none.
I dig his mind – he’s an intriguing sum. 🙂

Chris Christy is being called out of his comfort zone and into the spotlight.
He boasts he feels the presidential call – but the timing (for him), is just not right.

Rick Perry is down in the polls, he just doesn’t debate too well.
His charm was short lived – the tea party taketh & give
and have shot his once lead straight to hell.

Have a heart and take heart Perry, Everything will be cool.
At least illegal immigrants will be able to afford collegiate school.

I feel the same way as you brother and I’m certainly not taking it back.
But then again, I’m a liberal friend – a brotherly loving Democrat.

And the beat goes on, Life is surely good to me.
I awake everyday to film smiles for miles–
Those Happy Reflections are KEY.

I feel like it’s spring, with the allergies to match.
Texas is the place to be if tour selling things like a non allergy patch.

Excuse me, and I’m back on beat again,
I’m Qui
That happy Pre-Friday she about to dip & wash my hands.
