Humping Good Fashion

In Communication, Griot, Networking, Self Improvement on January 13, 2016 at 7:30 am

a-lion-is-like-a-LyonThere are a number of fashionable women that showcase on my 55″ flat screen weekly that I love. There’s Olivia Pope, Annalise Keating, the women on RHOA: Phaedra, Porsha and Kenya to name a few, and of course we can’t forget that diva at the top of EMPIRE. My goodness — I’m surrounded and because I’m a workaholic I rely heavily on my DVR to hold the 411 until I can dedicate an entire day to going through 3-4 episodes at a time to peep garment styles. It’s a necessary.

So let’s review a pic or two where hair, make-up and wardrobe all came through. Ooo! Nothings excites me more than:

RHOA_phaedra

Besides being an attorney and a funeral home owner Phaedra Parks is “hair and makeup.” I don’t care what this woman is wearing her hair and makeup is always on fleek. Eyebrows, lips and her fabulous eyeshadow color blending is always stunning. Watching Phaedra give me face makes me miss Married to Medicine’s: Quad Lunceford.  I can’t wait for the new season to fire up.

RHOA Kenya

.The USA twirls every time Kenya Moore is doing her thing. Have you ever seen a woman so flawless in action? If you haven’t check her out on BRAVO: Real Housewives of Atlanta every Sunday at 8/7c. I’ll never forget how flawless she looked when she took that lick from Porsha during a reunion episode. She recovered like a true diva with a mouthful of damnation — that played out royally for Porsha at the start of the following season. Kenya is the real deal. I like everything about her. As for those who feel otherwise — they will just have to get over it. I have a feeling she’s on display for the long run.

.
RHOA_PorshaWhat can I say about this lady? She’s just so darn pretty. Porsha is a member of the RICKY SMILEY MORNING SHOW in addition to being a fashionable, eye candy cast member on the RHOA. From head to toe, this lady knows how to work it! Check out her INSTAGRAM view too: OooLaLa! Porsha lends fashionable insight every time the camera is pointed her way. THANKS Porsha! #ShineON.

.Life is a SCANDAL and you very well know it, but good God I love the way ABC’s Olivia Pope shows it! I can never miss an episode of ‘a day in the life of Olivia Pope.’ The writers, hair, make-up and wardrobe designers are spot on – episodically. And while different retail outlets claim to have an Olivia Pope fashion line,” unless I hear it from the lips of ABC’s Scandal Wardrobe Director that this is her choice, I’m not buying it. Recreating a similar line at an affordable price is a nice try, however, Olivia’s look cut’s no corners and is not cheap. Let the spending scandal begin. #CopTheLook

htgwm_annalisekeatingHow to get away with staying on top of the fashion chain is much tougher than learning HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER. Yeah? Sometimes it feels like it may be, but Annalise Keating seems to have no problem staying on top of the a.m. fashion conquer regardless of what mayhem the midnight hour throws her way. Fashion, make-up, stunning shoes and the right wig is crucial. Annalise knows how to “put it on” and get away with it. I like that.

But wait! Don’t nobody move until Cookie comes in!!
Those shoes, that bag, that hat — that grin.

Whenever I feel edgy and want to start a fire,
I channel the fashions of that Diva Cookie, from EMPIRE!

Bossy & Bad — her attire fits the bill.
I resort to Cookies wardrobe for any battle that may be uphill.
Never thwarting the hat or the heels.

Humping Good Fashion is for real.

Today is Wednesday and I’m Humping GOOD FASHION.
A guide to what’s right is all I’ve been asking.

I still cop the magazines in the checkout line,
however the RHOA girls make it all come alive.

I DVR a few shows and suddenly my fashion thrives.
Using fashion as revenge is enough to make a girl cry.

I love it. Clean shoes and a nice hat always compliments sweet,
I’m Qui
Visiting the MAC counter for the flawless face of me.

Clothes works wonders,
but the right face brings all the thunder.

Odd Couple of shows – that I’m digging

In Communication, Griot, Networking, TV Shows on April 27, 2015 at 10:08 am

OddCoupleOfShows
I’ve been watching a lot of shows, but not necessarily at their scheduled times.
I’ve been getting-it-all-in via my DVR rewind.

I caught up on quite a bit this weekend — there was no serial room for dull;
I sat down and wore ‘the homebody crown’ starting with THE ORIGINALS.

I was about 3 episodes behind, though at the moment I’m all caught up
I was shocked to see the rivalry of 3 against Klaus up-in-the-cut.

Alas the Mickaelson click quietens the ruff blooded mutt.
They daggered o’ Klaus, then watched him quicken-up.

The scene was rough, especially considering
Klaus didn’t kill Aiden; he’s been “defense pandering.”

Meaning when others came running, gunning for the ruff,
He accepted the charge — throwing caution to wind and Dahlia.

He knew he had killed no one, and sensed an evil connect –
so to protect his family, Klaus stuck out his neck.

.
But he did not confess to anyone except Camille, his (bar) home girl
shortly before his kinfolk surrounded him and took him from this world.

It was starting to feel like SCANDAL‘s “Command” was on the scene.
Command is Olivia Pope’s father — Command can be ruthless and mean.

On the last episode the writers put ‘the fear of the unknown’ in our mouths
as we watched Olivia’s click go down, one-by-one as if being picked out.

A good dose of un-clout revealed that Olivia’s father owns this fight
but was unable to execute the fatal root for Jakes life.

In fact, while Olivia was loving on (what she thought was) a random bar muscle
she was indeed knocking boots with her daddy’s henchman — Russell.

Yes! The sexy black man, we’d known as Russell who was creeping in Olivia’s bed
At the conclusion of the last episode was lying on his back with a gun to his head.

Do what?!?
Child hush.

Liv was holding the gun – an automatic glock,
she was pointing it at his head, but was the hammer clocked?

olivia+russell+thegun

We don’t know.
The gun to Russell’s head – ended the show.

So off I go
to another show
That is reflective of today in its reeled time –
who could refuse not relating to the views that are played out on AMERICAN CRIME?

The writers of this show are into dropping bags full of dimes
As it pertains to”domestic insight” — kind of like my griot rhymes.

However this time after my DVR shined off 3 episodes from the digital books
I was forced to see that prejudice is a crime that is accepted and overlooked.

The reflection that we are getting from this show, story-after-story
is that everyone who is offended leans back on “the blame game” glory.

Matt was a 20-something year old vet
who served our country and retreated to sell meth.

He duly married the county’s crowned “Ms. Modesto,”
and in addition to selling drugs he rented out a [betrothed] hoe.

Ohhh and Uh-oh.

You didn’t know? Well I just told ya.
American Crime reflects the grime
in the lining that did mold ya!

Matt’s Mom is beside herself and content with laying the blame on any other
As long as we can prove the suspects ethnicity is from a minority mother.

Matt’s mother doesn’t care if the killer is latino or black – it really doesn’t matter
as long as it draws media headlines that injects her lop sided banter.

A real offended ranter, Matt’s mom doesn’t want to come to terms or admit
that the trouble her son was in, may have been behind his own ‘bit.’

I understand the plight of the mom, but wrong is wrong.
When you find out the crime is yours – don’t sing that victim song.

Entitlement runs rampart in this script and is subject to impale
anyone who sides too soon, in an effort avoid a personal fail.

The throws of creating this script must be hell – as it closely parallels real life.
I am thrown with every minute shown; American Crime reflects that trife.

Are you watching yourself? Are you watching the crib?
Are you drooling at the mouth? Do you need a bib?

I’ll get that for you — and off I go
to another show; this DVR is pulling me to and fro

exposing me to no shortage of conflicting banta’ —
with scarf in hand I am tuned-in to the REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA.

The broadcast season is over – still there’s enough left over confusion
that would preface the very reason this show needs an off-season reunion.

Part I. of this 3-part reunion started out on the stage
being hosted by Andy – he’s all of the “reel gossip” rage.

We flipped back and forth through past shows scratching up flakes
of controversy between the women during film and outtakes.

Porshe admitted to “sleeping with a married man” & the benefit of “the gift” reap
when she was out with Claudia and the girls in the Phillipines.

Kandy held up her own when Ne-Ne came at her with “I see you,”
Kandy replied, “We see each other” and that scene was through.

Cynthia looked pretty in part 1 and even though she didn’t say much,
I look forward to part 2 of the reunion and Cynthia yielding a little more love.

She’s beautiful, but not heavy on throwing shade.
Should as much be said about Kenya? God forbade.

I am a fan of Kenya Moore. You don’t have to personally like her.
But she’ll always have a view as long as there’s someone to film and mic her.

She’s way more than a pretty face, a voluptuous pair of girls and a bouyant butt,
Kenya is beautiful, creative, smart, proactive, professional and rough…

when need be,
i.e, when facing Porsha or NeNe.
Ooo wee.

I love ’em all, I really do.
If you get a minute next Sunday – drop on through.
The ladies will be much thicker in reunion – in part deux.

This weekend I worked my way though my DVR list on the double
and ended up laughing at that that duo in THE ODD COUPLE.

Have you been watching Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon?
Clever situational writing is what keeps me grinnin.’

Who knew I’d dig The Odd Couple – it has invoked a thirst
that I knew nothing about during the run of its successful first.

The first Odd Couple television series remains yesterdays beloved hit,
when Jack Krugman portrayed Oscar and Tony Randall birthed Felix.

At the shows conclude I was two years shy of six: broadcast 1970-1975.
The Odd Couple is new to me today. I pray it well on its new thrive.

My DVR is alive and I am diverse in culture in its wake.
I’m Qui
The caught-up she, ready to take on this creative day.
Starting with a )))HUG(( a kiss and a “heyyy!
Have a fantastic, show-stopping day.

NEWS PERUSE – Glued To The Tube

In Communication, Griot, Movies, Music, Self Improvement, TV Shows on February 20, 2015 at 9:37 am

Cute Guys glued to the tube

I know your television has been on – what have you been watching?
I keep the DVR full, I’m always show clocking.

I’m into #HTGAWM and la bella Analise. You may have heard of her?
She’s that chocolate chic, whose knowledge is thick on HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER.

how to get away with murder FLIRTABC is out of control, they’re demanding my attention without cessation.
I know I am not alone based on the viewer alert tones I receive from FB nation.

If you are watching this show, then you know that we’re down to the wire,
the season finale is soon to come, yet, so many irons are still in the fire.

The creation and writing fulfills my desire to get more from “my comfy-couch time”.
Shondra Rhimes is growing a “David E. Kelley vine” and yields a great deal of my sunshine.

I love it, still my DVR has many slots available – increasing my capacity for “handle,”
so dare I miss an episode of Olivia Pope and them folk on ABC’s SCANDAL?

scanal FLIRTI shall not. The writing is hot and I do dig it very much.
I’ve got a thing for Hulk ‘ – because he’s got that “down-for-Liv” love.

Ride or die. Hulk said he’s a rider now, and that he is no longer “the killer.”
Still, the way he chooses to incapacitate one – belongs in a psycho thriller.

He’s the real deal’a, yo – and I can respect that.
NEW 411: I’ve got eyes for Mary Jane’s new cat.

BEING MARY JANE can’t be easy,
but a ride on her latest boy toy ‘sho makes it look breezy.

 

You can B.E.T. me every Tuesday from 8-9, because I will be in the cut.
The writers of #BMJ have got-it-going-on in scribbling out “grown folks stuff.”

Being Mary Jane w Brandon

Unfortunately, Mary Jane and Brandon don’t talk much…

 

I tend to like it rough and they don’t sugar coat too much.
I love that they encompass a lot of insight: the good, the bad, the love…

I’d love to give Mara Brock a big ol’ )))HUG(((!! I appreciate her
for contributing to facilitating our cheesy sitcom past – into a blur.

empire FLIRTThen there’s that awesome hustle and flow of business and lyrical fire —
that exists within the hip hop frames of Lucious and Cookies EMPIRE!

The writing on this show calls out and really speaks to me;
birthed from the same hands as The Butler – it’s the handy work of Lee.

Lee Daniels is the creator of this show and he did not at all miss
when he ‘took it to the head’ and casted Henson and Howard in the mix.

The other actors in the cast roster, are largely faces I do not know,
and that’s part of the hook that keeps me glued to this action-packed show.

The music is pretty good too. The score is composed by sir Timbaland.
He produced Missy Elliott and the sill beloved Alliyah. Remember them?

Blackish-PosterThen there’s the creator of that show BLACK’ISH – he’s got his hands full pulling this duty.
He’s taken-on introducing blacks to the world, via Anthony Anderson and Tracie Ellis’ booty.

Kenya Barris has once again proven that when it comes to show producing – he can do it.
I learned about this show via Exec. Prod. Larry — from The Daily Show with Stewart.

Speaking of Jon Stewart — he’ll be ending his show’s broadcast this year.
The man who divvied us the 411 via laughter-to-tears.

It’s been real funny, indeed. May his exit cause no lumps in the throat;
let us move on and laugh well with those folk on FRESH OFF THE BOAT.

My brief research on the shows creator left me feeling diversely strong –
the creator crafted this from a life of his own: the creator’s name is Eddie Huang.

FOTBI’m a passenger watching #FOTB and I must say based on the noted behaviors,
I have duly been missing out on laughing with my Asian neighbors.

My direct neighbors are of Asian decent and from 3-years passed to this day,
We are cool, with no friction to invoke fool — everyday we just smile and wave.

Digging Eddie Huang’s mind, makes me want to interact with them more.
This is a direct cause and effect from televisions diversity score.

I love it – I love it! Therefore, I remain intently in tune,
I’m Qui 
Rending a channeled view in this NEWS PERUSE – happily Glued To The Tube.
