Another Fine WEDNESDAY

Greenleaf-cast-2017-season2And I’m feeling very much like 32
It’s SPRING time and I’m on the take –
not sure what on Earth I’m going to do

with this sunny side of me that is clearly showing.
I’m over here reading, writing, learning and knowing.

I’m soaking up information that I didn’t know yesterday.
The sapeosexual that I am, this research equates to play.

Hey-ey! It’s Wednesday baby and I’ve got a feeling of Dallas, TX in my hair.
I’m quite a few miles out of her radius’ frame but my attitude doesn’t care.

greenleaf_family.pngI’ve got K104 blasting through my speakers, via an app and bluetooth on my phone.
I’m rolling through the streets, I’m Phoenix-deep, but the DF-Dub is all in my dome.

Monday seems like it was just yesterday — yet it looks like the weekend’s about to begin.
We’re atop of the hump, fix your posture – no slump, It’s not Friday, but WEDNESDAY, again.

What’cha got up for today? Be it all sweet and no beef
for later tonight on channel OWN, you can indulge in some GREENLEAF.

Yes, honey child.
GREENLEAF is back – you know it’s gone be wild.

UNDERGROUND will backdoor this awesome show and still new at season 2’s begin.
Underground isn’t on channel OWN, but rather on WGN.

Go ahead and DVR them in. Both are pretty good company.
I’m just a writer, a dome exciter – these shows are like friends to me.
You ever talk back to the TV? 🙂

I do, and all of the time.
Sometimes it’s a flat comment – sometimes it’s a rhyme.

Today more of the same will be on shine, I’ll be nail-biting on bended knees,
I’m Qui
on Another Fine Wednesday, join me later on for familial reflections of you and me.

Artful Notation

Just yesterday as I was on my way, sashaying and being productively steady
I received an informative text from the international and domestically cool: Fab 5 Freddy.

Beyond saying,”Yo Qui! What’s up?,” and spitting a few more verses that made me think
he split my wig with info of his current gig when he shot me this WJLA link:

Fab5Freddy & MC Yan hang hip, historic and cultural ART in the SMITHSONIAN

http://wjla.com/features/good-morning-washington/street-artists-bring-unique-collaboration-kung-fu-wildstyle-to-the-smithsonian

Two very different, yet influential international icons
collaborating in art of hip and historic cultural sums.

Mmm and yum. Y’all know how I feel about adding good and solid content.
It seems that their art and cultural collab has alas, been SMITHSONIAN sent.

The WILDSTYLE EXHIBITION is on display in Washington, DC as I speak.
The a fore interview was pretty telling as well, click PLAY and take a peek.

Good shows, good art and good love are like shots of caffeine to me,
I’m Qui
This Wednesday deserves a “Oui” for being so Fab and for tonights Greenleaf!

GREENLEAF

greenleaf-castf
The other day I had a couple of quiet hours alone
so I kicked back and put channel 279 on.

I have DIRECTV, so that channel is OWN
and the drama that resonated was good to the bone.

GREENLEAF is the show and though its coming to a close – its first season,
It’s PRIME SOAP and melanin dope;  the cast of players yield familial reason.

There’s Lynn Whitfield, Keith David, Lamman Rucker and Tye White
as well as Kim Hawthorne, Merle Dandridge and Madam “Oprah” Dynamite.

The familial situations and the scrip writing is out of sight.
I watched a couple of episodes back-to-back that night

and easily so.
It was so good that I absolutely couldn’t let go.

So I watched
and tick tock went the clock

as the Bishops family fell apart…
this, in the first seasons start.

greenleaf-bishop-1st-ladyGREENLEAF is the family, their faith and professions are in the church.
Prayer is hailed for healing – they pray for others, but they, themselves, are hurt.

Keith David is the Bishop, you remember him from SOMETHING ABOUT MARY?
The way this man transitions in roles is quite believable and errily scary.

He plays his part as if he’s playing no part at all;
his house of clergy is exposed and threatens to fall.

Lynn Whitfield is the Bishops wife and first lady. She’s classy from A to Z.
She walks soft, but you can tell she’s the domestic boss and reigns proper in her scenes.

Ooo y’all! Please tell me that I’m the last one to find this gem.
I pray that you’re watching, I love the scripted hymns.

If this show were not so fantastically WRITTEN we could call this a reality show.
In the face of the truth kudos to the writing team. I’m hooked and ready to go…

find this series in satellite broadcast do a religious re-run
because this season is “already in progress” and is almost done.

Catching up can be fun and on DirecTV it’s free.
I’m Qui
enjoying my OWN tv and the innards of the mega church via GREENLEAF.
And let’s NOT TALK ABOUT Brother Mc Cready….
