THE CHI is back. I am still digging and feelin’ ’em.
Ax and Chuck Rhoades are back – I’m back to BILLIONS.

My DVR setup is filled with explosive narrative writes
that have attention-span holders to keep me up at night.

OFF CAMERA WITH SAM JONES is where I spend my lunch hour.
Have you seen his insightful guests? All fresh and no sour.

The Sam Jones production yields power and introductions.
I’ve got class & lab to craft-me-fab and tailor my productive functions.

I’ve got gumption! I’m going for it.
And innovative script? I’m known to score it.

It’s good to go on a creating binge
knowing there are streamers that will house them in the end.

While that’s good news, it’ll make you no star,
Productions are complete just to compete in a DVR spar.

Satellite TV, network TV, and streaming networks
are what comes to mind during a script writing growth-spurt.

So very focused – I am…
I’ve dreams to sit with ol’ Sam.

Though today I am happy to be doing lab in Science.
My GPA is strong. I’m course curriculum compliant.

color temperature_equals emotions.gifI’m studying color contrasts and what lighting temps do to a scene.
I’m honing in on how to visually make you laugh and cry at a thing.

Oh yes, fam. Science lives inside of Art.
Soap Operas own the sport of emotional war.

Give it up to The Young and The Restless,
tho I think OWN Network is in the lead at doing it best.

I’m watching quite a bit – I’m trying to see it all.
I must admit I rarely quit but pass out/nocturnal stall.

Good stuff y’all. Are you watching any show more than you watch the news?
I’m Qui
Into thee and hard on my studies to craft much fresher views.

I don’t mind the news but I’m am into a much more enlightened you.

The power grid tripped…

In Communication, Griot, Music, Networking, News, Self Improvement on February 12, 2012 at 3:53 pm

My Saturday had been going along well, there was the ZUMBA class that morning, lunch with two of my most beloved peeps in the world, a little shopping and then home, where I fully intended to keep the feel good party going. A couple of hours into the domain thing and my 14 year old kid knocks on my door and says, “Mom, who’s Whitney Houston?” I was shocked she’d ask. I thought maybe the child has fallen and bumped her head. I replied, “How do you mean? Are you okay?”. She responded, “Yes, I was just wondering if she’s the singer you love so much…” I interrupted with “Yes she is and you love her too”. My favorite teen then said, “I’m on FACEBOOK and everyone keeps saying ‘RIP WHITNEY HOUSTON’…” She kept talking, but I faded out of conversation, picked up my iPhone4S and read the news for myself: The first article (I saw) listed on google.

It was as if the power grid tripped. I think I subconsciously blacked out for a few seconds. I was still conscience, but totally unavailable for thought … forget a comment. I didn’t speak for a minute or two. I just sat there. I felt lightly nauseous. I was breathing shallow. Then my good mind kicked in and told me to breathe. I enhaled (big) through my nose and exhaled through the lips. That’s when I heard my daughter saying, “Mom?” I looked at her and said, “Yes, it’s the singer. It’s not a mix up. She’s gone.” I didn’t cry. I was nauseous. Truth was in the room and the lights were on. How sobering. For so long “sober” eluded the topic.

I’m melancholy with sober right now.

My heart goes out to Bobby Brown. Bobby was in Mississippi about to perform with NEW EDITION when the news broke. He missed the first number they did, because he was obviously yielding grief. However, he was able to join the ensemble on the second number, paid honor to Whitney, then sang TENDERONI (solo) in her memory. Read more about Bobby’s reaction here.

My maternal heart goes out to Bobbi Kristina. I can’t imagine her pain. I wish the SISTER COMMUNITY, (Super Star sisters that loved and closely befriended Whit, like Mariah Carey, Jennifer Hudson, and Oprah – even) would look after her. Kind of like God Mothers. You know? Say Bobbi K want’s to go into the music business, she may not be a singer, but maybe Mariah Carey or Jennifer H. could use an intern. Or maybe Bobbi K wants to go into television production, maybe Oprah could facilitate an internship at “OWN” or something. It’s a good idea – right? I just don’t want us as a people to pass Bobby K off as “grown”, knowing good and well, her life is highly comparable to that of a child star. Bobby K will surely suffer from her mothers passing in lows — that many of us will never know.

You can say what you want about Bobby Brown and Whit’s relationship. I do believe he loved her. I do not blame him for her demise in any sense. Whitney was a grown woman. I’m a grown woman. My choices are my own. My being the operative word. Whitney loved Bobby – through right, wrong and indifference. And the details therein — are none of my business. I wish every life to be happy. Life is too short to live it any other way. It’s your life. Spend it the way you want to. Blame no one for the way your life was spent. It’s yours. Other folks have theirs to live. Be happy. Love. Live. Whitney did.

The power grid tripped and the lights went out.
But it was only for a moment and no reason to pout.

Whitney was my Leo sister and I too followed her moves.
Whitney was grown and her decisions were her own – she had her own groove.

She loved Bobby hard and made Bobbi Kristina out of love.
Her very existence was a blessing in itself – her voice: a strong vocal hug.

A force to be reckoned with. Linger not on her death.
Whitney loved life, and left us with her absolute best.

Beyond the recordings that will make us remember the lady,
Let us rally around the surviving ex-husband and baby.

Let’s not blame anyone for anyone – In the end – it doesn’t matter.
Let us embrace Kristina with a support’ful demeanor via positive history chatter.

Let’s be a community who can positively handle lifes low grips,
I’m Qui
Surely missing Whitney – the reason the power grid tripped.

On our OWN Soon…

Supporting Our OWN

So we’re 15 days away from Oprah closing her ABC hosted show for good and opening up a world of her OWN. Will you be watching?

I’m simply here to parallel the inform:
O is leaving ABC – but sound no alarm.

She’s not being fired – not taking an absence of leave;
Not quitting the show because she’s run out of weave. lol!

Oprah’s got it all including the steady Stedman and the bffl Gayle;
In her interview with Barbara Walters – GAY RUMORS were dispelled.

With only a few days to go in the year 2010
The Oprah Show’s close will be the OWNs new begin.
So…WE all WIN!

It’s the weekend baby and I thought you should know
Even as the clock winds down – You’ll always have your “O”.

Ho’ohhhhhhh like Cuz’n O is known for saying,
I’m Qui
MERRY CHRISTMAS to thee – ’tis my preference of wish labeling.

God bless the child that’s got his OWN

Oprah's got her OWN

Especially if thier ‘OWN‘ stands for the OPRAH WINFREY NETWORK. Right? God bless the Queen of Talk Show Hosts. We all know she’s retiring from her couched position on ABC in the Fall of 2011, but what then?

Oprah will actually continue to host, but this time it will be a multi-night program on her upcoming network OWN. Yes – She’s got ‘her own’. The show [Dubbed Oprah’s Next Chapter] will air two or three times a week and will feature Winfrey globe-trotting to interview prominent figures. It’s expected to premiere late next year, after Winfrey signs off of The Oprah Winfrey Show in September 2011. OWN is scheduled to launch Jan. 1, 2012 under the Discovery umbrella. Her vision for OWN “is to create a network that inspires our viewers and makes them want to be who they are on their best day.” So in essence, it’s an extension of what she’s already doing. Aren’t you always inspired to be better post an afternoon of O? I am.

The OWN Network will run a variety of shows in series, like:

Visionaries: Inside the Creative Mind
This show will highlight stars such as the Black Eyed Peas, Annie Leibovitz and Tom Ford giving viewers a look inside of their creative processes.

Your Own Show: Oprah’s Search for the Next TV Star
The show’s focus will be on Oprah teaming up with reality guru Mark Burnett, goes on the prowl for the next big small-screen talent.

Gayle King Live!
(and NO. Larry King is not mad about being the titles inspriation) 🙂 O’s BFFL radio show will go visual. Not much will change in the format of how Gayle does her current radio show or interviews her guests; the only difference is, we’ll be able to see her.

Why Not? with Shania Twain
This series will chronicle Shania’s life since her marriage to music producer Robert “Mutt” Lange ended in 2008 amid reports that he had an affair.

Speaking of “affairs” Oprah dares not to close out her ABC relationship without hosting the mother of former Senator John Edwards illegitimate baby. Mm-mm-m. Television watchers are some nosey folks. I’ll be sure to document the details here on my site if any good juice should spring forth while I’m watching. lol!

Peace and Blessings,
I’m Qui
and it’s nothing like being open and telling.

You can call me ‘the Griot literal O’
I’ll always hook you up with the online flow.
Ohhhhh!
…and now you know.
