WHAT MEN WANT

In Comedy, Communication, Griot, Movies, Networking, News, Video on February 15, 2019 at 12:22 pm


.

Sometimes I sit and wonder to myself
how men think and operate within themselves.

I admit on the subject that I don’t commit to thinking too long,
and after seeing Taraji’s new film I need an Erykah Badu song

and a bag of that magical herbal tea
that she pushed on her patrons and Taraji P.

Erykah’s character also sold weed
in the back of a salon that installed weaves.

This film was easy going and fun to see.
In addition to my patronage, I brought an additional three

and we all enjoyed the theater haunt
that entertained us for 2-hours on WHAT MEN WANT.

So what do they want? You may ask.
Child, you’ll have to see the film to truly bask

in why women should not be privy to men’s passing thoughts.
None were too lewd; I’ve heard many through a faux cough

in my own life.
Though yesterday was about Tina Gordon‘s write

and co-written with Peter Hyuck and Alex Gregory too.
Taraji P. and 8 others executed the films produce.

Taraji was like Paula Patton in the way that she walked the project through.
No shade to Proud Mary, but the WHAT MEN WANT film had more juice.

Okay – the last say may contain a wee bit of shade for Proud Mary. 
It’s just that the project was strong before its final cut was miscarried.

WHAT MEN WANT
delivered on many fronts:

The storyline was good and the situations were fresh.
Did the composition and cast yield a comedic gas? Yes!

I laughed out loud often as did my plus-3 party of friends.
We laughed and nudged in the dark from beginning to end.

But I will say that Taraji’s co-star Aldis Hodge is a talent our audience held dear.

I heard a few gasps when he came onto the screen.
I remember Aldis as Noah from the UNDERGROUND scene.

My, my, my, it was good to see him cast in a single father’s role
and the chemistry between him and Taraji P was relative gold.

Yes. I really liked it. erykah-badu_what-men-want.JPG
Again big ups to SISTER, the weed selling psychic.

Big ups to Tracy Morgan  who played the dad that held it down
when it was time for his son to be NBA draft-bound.
He was the no-nonsense Dad who’s prone to clown.

I saw a little bit of a Levar Ball ingredient as his storyline did unfold.
Tracy’s character had merchandise to promote his son, including a trademarked logo.

Tracy held his weight and added cohesiveness to the script.
Every element of this film was well placed – none shot from the hip.

I’m sure I laughed through a few quips; this film is a winner and at the conclusion, I felt refreshed.

and it was good to see Taraji P. Henson continue to shine and look her best.

I say as much because – we all know her as Cookie from Empire.
Empire is no comedy, therefore Taraji’s talent is just fire.

Cherishing

Time flies…

Good morning. I woke up with the feeling of winning!
No jars to pickle me in – though I am hooked on KIDDING.

Have you had a chance
to check out KIDDING On-Demand?

Oh, you should. You really should.
It’s quite the SHOWTIME reflection of a ‘perfect neighborhood.’

I hope that Mr. Roger’s hood was not ever so deep.
You’ve got to see Jim Carey’s performance – It’s talking to you and me.

The writers scripted sex, death, and drugs
to accessorize the main story t’was born of love.

The society-observative me thinks so.
Season one came in hot; the cast is a pro.

The narrative view is fresh, it’s strong, and it’s rough.
Jeff Pickles has his shortcomings, yet he is enough.

TNT’s LAST SHIP has sailed, and it isn’t coming back.
Sunday was the last battle on Nathan James’ war track.

I like to watch television a little bit
and it’s channel 573 that I just can’t quit.

It’s called SHORTSTV and it has the best lineups
of creative short films that you can watch in your cut.

Time flies when you’re having fun and reviewing your peers.
I’m a student of film, popcorn, mimosa’s, and cheers.

I’m truly entering into my happy zone as Fall’s essence begins to ring,
and then I hear that Kim Porter’s crossed over; she exited the scene.

XO.

PDiddy aka Mr. Love: I am doleful for you and your beloved children.
Please take heart knowing Kim won’t be far – and that you’ll see her again.

Kim did cross over, but her love won’t ever end.
This morning I arose and with intent, my knees did bend.

I’m praying for you; you and the fam are not alone.
Kim Porter was the real deal, I can’t wait to hear the memoir song.

Life is not to be taken for granted, neither is the stretch or the yawning.

MURDER and MYSTERY without the DINNER

In Communication, Griot, Networking, TV Shows on February 18, 2015 at 6:47 am

murdermysteryNOdinnerWho did it? Who did it? Who among kin
took an object to the back of the  head of Austin?

It was supposed to be fun,
but then Fen spiked the punch.

Abby Newman secretly invited each guest to party at her family’s cabin-stead
they all blacked out – and woke up feeling foggy in the head and Austin is dead.

Abby Newman, Summer & Austin, Fen Baldwin

Ooo wee. There’s a murder mystery on Y&Rthe writers are no beginners.
They’ve served up another death and didn’t even give them dinner.

Beyond the murder mystery (that will, for the next few weeks, drive viewers insane),
there’s also the blizzard snow factor and that missing air plane.

Oh yes! A plane went down – Neil and his family were on board.
Turbulence took them down after Lilly called Hillary a whore.

The plane went down, more precisely at the point when everyone was staring Neil in the face,
after he revealed that he could indeed see and was hard clutching a brief case.

Screen Shot 2015-02-17 at 1.12.29 PM

Top Lft to Bottom Rt: Neil Winters, [wife] Hillary, [son] Devon, [daughter] Lilly, [her husband] Cane Ashby and Colin and Jill-Abbott Ashby

What’s in the briefcase?,” asked Lilly, Devon and concerned others.
This after Neil confronted his son and his wife on being lovers.

If mother nature were not the reason for the turbulence on that tragic plane ride,
bad energy from the fam, would be the blame for the crash and the pilots life.

Wreckage sprawled about 

Lying in the snow, Cane woke up first and began to yell and look around,
most folk regained their faculties, but Hillary is wreckage bound.

The plane was filled with family members only – the manifest wasn’t many;
so imagine the gut wrench of them all when they fail to locate Lilly.

The fever of our emotions were then thrown back to the cabin’s suspects and “who did it,”
that’s when Summer envisioned her hands ‘on an object’ and the spot where ‘she hid it.’

She ran to the couch, removed the seat cushion and screamed.
It seems Summer has killed her man — with no apparent reason at seam.

Oh my! Oh my! I’m sure she wishes it were a bad dream.
Now comes the work to find out why and what it all means.

Good work Y&R writers. I’m enjoying your hand at play,
I’m Qui
Voting you MOST INTERESTING for choosing murder on lovers day.
