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.

Coming around to Billy…

Billy Miner vs Tom David

L-R: Billy Miner and Tom David, ie… the beloved Billy Abbott

Billy Abbott that is. Have you been watching Tom David refill his shoes that Billy Miller relinquished last year? I really hated to see Mr. Miner go. He shaped the Billy Abbott role into something sexy. He brought swag to the persona. I am so sure he has exited Y&R for bigger dramatic roles. No, I have no inside information to share at this time, but you know you can tell when the depth of a character resides solely with the actor by how he comprehends and relays the writers template. Billy Minor single handledly gave Billy Abbott a huge fundamental facelift.

Tom David was the first Billy Abbott ever casted in Y&R back in the 80’s, and a couple (or few) have come and gone since, all were interchangeable and stuck to the script, but when Billy Miner wore the shoes, the writer was forced to add swag to the characters scripted choreography and to their credit, they did it seamlessly. Billy Abbott went from being Jill Abbott’s annoying, rich and aimless son to someone a house wife could and would break from mopping to study. Bravo writers! I saw it all happen and it was beautiful, then Billy Miner exited the cast last year to faites de meilleures choses

Tom David puts his baptized shoes back on and assumes his role-right.  At first it was a funky fit. He was walking funny, (in character), as if to say, ‘Now, whose shoes are these? I’m married to who?’ It was a struggle to watch Tom get back into the swing of things, but then today… today I tune into Y&R and see Billy Abbott moving forward in niching out his new view. It seems the writers have literally killed the old Billy (crafted by Billy Miner) and have started anew with a lighter, more social kind of Billy Abbott in script. Today I found myself not struggling, but Coming around to Billy. I can’t say it was anything in particular he said, but was definitely in how he handled himself in what he did. I do remember a scene he had with Chelsea Newman today, where he stopped by at a rather odd hour and unannounced, I thought I was about to be annoyed but Billy handled his role with a unique and interesting set of likable, quick-debating skills that won him entrance into Chelsea’s domain and into the favorable column in my loyal viewers mind.

Whew! That was a mouthful! That’s the work of the writing cast on Y&R. I’m full of praise because I know first hand how rough it is to keep the long-term interest of the peering public. ALL MY CHILDREN knows it. GENERAL HOSPITAL knows it and RYAN’S HOPE died shortly after it’s birth. Surely you remember? Well knock-on-wood, because that is not the story of Y&R. And I am content still, even though Billy and Victoria Newman-Abbott are filing for divorce. I am convinced that there may be a be a good life in the script coming down the pipeline for ol’ Billy – of course a lot of that will hinge on what Tom David can do in his shoes. I’m ready to see him dance. How about you? Yo DJ!! Pump that Y&R joint!

Yes! I’m Coming around to Billy, and I’m really glad about it.
I thought he’d be annoying and considered the role and ‘out-it.’

I felt like Billy Miner’s talents did the role a favor and that the story line would unfortunately show
that the scripted character took a shot-to-the-eye when they let Billy Miner go.

Yes, the switch started out slow and whenever Tom David would enter the set, I’d go and get water.
There was no interest in my mid-day routine for Jill’s son, ‘the annoying, the rich and the guarded.’

Though today the tides seems to be changing and rolling someone new up onto the beach.
I’m Qui
and Y&R’s Tom David is the one who seems to be up to dance. I’m looking forward to his role-right beat.

He has my attentions.
Enough to warrant this mention.

PS — Did you see that kiss Billy planted on Chelsea today? Wooo Hooo!

Doing it again…

qBefore my WordPress time, I was out on my own
I built a website that I’ll forever call home.

This website holds some of the coldest writings;
The authors were true and their lives:  exciting.

Young was the day and way before President Obama.
Even before Facebook – we assembled and aired ill drama.

Not for the cause of gossip or to spread
but mostly for the purposes of “the mind” being fed.

It was real conversation – perhaps something my man said the other day.
It was raw & untapped – no limits of what the author could say.

Well that was then, though today is shaping us nice,
it seems the grace that blessed us then, has come around twice.

In the age of all that’s good and social network mixing,
it’s good to know there’s a literal site where FREE SPEECH is kicking.

It’s a grown conversation – we say what the heck we feel.
It’s not a profane show. With integrity – we keep it real.

It’s not a PG show and certainly not for the faint at heart.
I can’t believe it’s come around again – 4 years past our part.

But it has indeed. Would you care to drop in and be nosey?
Learn something new, be blushed, breathless and rosy?

Then by all means of hospitality: I invite you to do drop in.
Spectators bring your glasses – Writers bring your pens.

Who killed Diane Jenkins

In Griot, Networking, TV Shows on January 11, 2012 at 9:04 pm

Who killed this woman?


Even though Victor Newman sits in a jail cell
after having confessed to the murder of Diane Jenkins — HE DIDN’T DO IT. Even though Nicholas Newman had a tiff with Diane Jenkins prior to her getting her head bashed in at the creek — HE DIDN’T DO IT. Victoria Newman didn’t do it. Nicky Newman didn’t do it. Deacon didn’t even do it. I’m no sleuth but I am an avid Y & R follower and I’m pretty sure the crazy arsed Patty did it. Patty is Paul’s sister. She’s crazy and insane and I think Adam Newman incited her to do the murderous thang that was done to Diane Jenkins.

Now there’s no NEW CONFESSIONS out yet that support my theory, but Patty has recently been worked back into the scene as “Myrna” — Genevieve‘s housekeeper, who recently had facial reconstruction after surviving an explosion that Colin (Genevieve’s ex-husband) allegedly caused. Before the explosion happened, we always heard Jack Abbott speak of Myrna to Genevieve in passing conversation, but never really got to put our eyes on the seemingly shy housekeeper, until the writers decided they needed to finally close the chapter on “WHO KILLED DIANE JENKINS”.

I imagine they didn’t want to pen it on a staple cast member, so they brought the loony toon Patty back from padded lock up to take the blame. It’s not so much a ‘classic move’ as it is an easy move. BLAME IT ON THE VILLAGE IDIOT – or at least the town loon if you need to close the case soon. I also predict Adam Newman had something to do with commissioning her to kill Diane. Ahhh, Adam is so good at persuading, (or so the writers WRITE IT as so). I’m never sold on his bird brain schemes — but without them, it wouldn’t be “the soaps”.

The facts are not all in and no one has been seriously charged for Diane’s murder. Victor Newman sits in jail under blame, at his own hands. In his mind, he thought Nikki Newman killed her while under the influence of alcohol, (she’s a recovering alcoholic). Nikki couldn’t remember if she’d killed her or not, so Victor swung into action and took the blame to avoid his former favorite stripper and ex-wife from going to prison for murder.

Alas, Nikki didn’t kill Diane and Victor sits in denim behind bars for nothing. With so much time on his hands he’s recently asked Sharon Newman, (his former daughter-in-law) to marry him and he put at least a 4 carat rock on her ring finger. Nikki and Nicholas are outraged that he proposed and that Sharon is wearing the ring. Victor stands to confuse his grand children born between Nicholas and Sharon, as they currently call Victor ‘Grandpa’.

We’d all classify this as trailer trash or Jerry Springer type stuff,
If the writers didn’t make the characters bank balances so rough.

They are stinking rich and their trash supersedes a trailer.
They are a hoarders dream –> they stack legacy paper.

They’re fictional and exciting and filthy alike.
They are the staple to so many who love the afternoon soap life.

Aye! I am one who loves soap in the afternoon. Perhaps because I’m a writer.
As trashy as Victor Newman is acting – he’s quite the distinguished exciter.

So Who killed Diane Jenkins? Well don’t be looking at me.
I’m Qui
That Young & Restless She & I’m pretty sure the answer is Patty.
