The After Prison Show gets refreshed..!

So I’ve changed the theme here to spruce up the place a little… Also incorporated relevant channels and pages through the SMALLEST WIGETS EVER…

WTF..!

I want the Youtube icon and the Facebook like page icons to be big and easy to see..!

This theme only seems to offer teeny tiny little wigets though…

Oh well.

Still, the place looks good, right..?

Cool.

OK. SO yesterday I got to spend some time with my mom…

She helped me do some running around in preparation for an upcoming Paint Nite with Joe event…

She is even going to attend the event..!

Wow…

That’s pretty awesome.

The two of us haven’t really had a relationship in the last 10 years. So rebuilding one has been great..!

I got to eat lunch with her and show her some of the more controversial videos I’ve created as of late.

And she offered up her opinion on them and I appreciated that.

I think whats crazy to me is that people, or more so my family, is seeing the real potential I have to do something awesome with all that I’m doing. And that impresses them…

Them being impressed….

Actually any and everyone who is impressed…

My fans who are really starting to grow in numbers…

All that I impress with what I’m doing only furthers my drive and determination to make this shit blow up even more..!

For all of you and for me as well….

In the end this will all have been worth it.

Also, today I’m going to shoot a video..!

Uh oh..!

OMG.

What’s he going to shoot about NOW..!

Yeppo.

Today I’m going to shoot a new video..!

So look for that to debut soon…!

To everyone out there listening…

Reading….

As always, thank you.

Have an awesome Sunday..!

I was drinking when I wrote this…

What a day..!

And what a night, too…!

I mean, it’s Friday night and I’m sitting here typing up a post..!

Yikes.

Can somebody say “no life..!”

Kidding.

Please don’t take offense anyone who might also have spent there Friday night the same.

So, yeah…

What a day..!

Thank God it’s over with, too..!

Today I worked my awesome flagging job making the big bucks..!

No amount of 30+ mph winds that threatened to blow the stop/slow paddle out of my hand all day, or reckless drivers barreling down on me at breakneck speeds could out my flame when it comes to what the pay is like with this gig…

It’s all well worth the sacrifice…

Like working 8 hours straight with no lunch break..!

But thats another thing altogether. You know, for the labor board…

Kidding.

Or, am I..?

So, yeah…

I want to talk about something…

It would appear to me that certain folks are not happy with my videos as of late.

I’ve had a few NASTY comments, which I can handle.

Unfortunately I erased them which now I’m having mixed feelings about.

But still…

I understand that not everyone is going to like everything that I create..!

Some folks would like to argue that employers could get mad or upset for BLASTING and exposing the workplace…

But let me ask you something in relation to that…

Folks, where do I work..?

Do you know..?

No.

Why..?

Because it’s the same philosophy as when I was in prison and I would never mention the name of the facility I was housed at…

That way I never truly BLAST or EXPOSE anyone in particular. Or anything.

Or any place.

I do this ever so strategically as to not interrupt the flow of the cosmos…

In laments terms…

I’m not going to put at risk anyone or anything….

I’m a pretty smart guy I like to think.

Sometimes I’d even go as far as to call myself “genius..”

It’s true. Really.

I’m not some dumb fuck just posting with no direction or purpose here…

Let my words resonate with you…

By the end of 2016, it’s my hope to reach a major cable network..!

Remember that.

So yeah, if I upset some folks along the way. Well, I apologize…

But what I’m working towards is much bigger than that. Some folks won’t believe in it.

Some may even lose faith in my capability…

But hear these words…

Where one stops believing…

I’ll make three more believe.

If you hear me bitch and complain about minimum wage on a construction job…

Ask yourself this first before you pass judgement…

Would you work construction for minimum wage…?

Ass busting, psychical work all day..?

No. You wouldn’t. How ever you try and spin it.

You wouldn’t.

And if you did, for some miraculous reason…

You would say that you would do whatever you had to to improve upon the situation…

I.E. I shoot videos…

Because it’s through this extra ordinary measure that I WILL improve upon MY situation.

So, that’s about the gist of it.

What I create, I hope you enjoy and I hope you feel it…

Because it gets more real by the day.

And I’m pulling LESS punches by the day as well.

Rock with me folks…

Stay with me.

Even if one or two videos you’re like “ehhh.”

I’ll come back like “BLAM” with the follow up.

Thank you all for sticking around.

Bigger and better things are on the way.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Think your job sucks…

Hey everyone..! As I type this I’m up early pushing some new videos I’ve just recently published, and also getting ready for work…!

Yep, today I’m going back to my high paying flagging job after 3 loooong days out on a construction site where I just found out I was only making MINIMUM WAGE..!

WTF..!

Still, whatever…

I’m blessed to be able to go to work at all. So for that I’m thankful.

The construction job did suck, though. And what a fucking disaster that job was…

The guy we worked for was pretty cool, though. He told us how Osha was all over them for having 2 horrific ACCIDENTS in like two weeks..!

He showed me and my partner Wayne pictures of this guys legs who was crushed by 9000 lbs. of granite…

That shit didn’t even look real..!

Yuck.

But that gig is over now.

Ended with no hiring prospects. Which is always what I’m looking for out on these temp jobs.

I really do hope to find a good or even decent job out here.

What good did come from this is the two videos I shot while out on this job. One of which that has caused me to lose a subscriber to The After Prison Show channel on youtube.

Oh well, not everyone is going to be a fan all the time…

Everyone is going to have there opinions.

And I respect that.

This latest video is even worse than the first in the regard to why I lost that subscriber. But it’s a pretty good video that shows you and tells you a little more of what it’s been like in my working life lately.

So, please…

As always…

Check it out here.

I think I went just a little Bryan Silva with this one.

So my latest video gives you a little more insight into this crappy construction job that I just worked for the last two days…

A job that, like I said, is overrun by spanish workers who looked at me and Wayne like we were stepping wrong on their turf…

And a job that had me thinking quite a bit….

Like… How is it that we are only making $7.75/hr and we’re having to work so damn hard PICKING UP TRASH ALL DAY while everyone else around us was probably making MORE THAN US and they’re taking breaks all throughout the day..?!?

Didn’t think that was much fair.

Or…

Here’s one to kick the hornets nest with…

I wonder how many cartel dollars went into funding these Spanish run construction companies..?

Forget who is even legal or not…

How much drug money funded these companies..?

You’d be foolish to think none or not much.

But that’s just my opinion.

And just in case any of you out there are thinking I’m wrong for what I’m saying…

Remember this…

My last name is Guerrero.

That’s Spanish.

Pretty ironic if you ask me.

Well, if you haven’t been too offended by all this. Please check out the video here.

Comment and let me know your thoughts.

And if you haven’t done so yet, please subscribe to The After Prison Show YouTube Channel.

Thanks to all of you out there who check my content out..!

Have an AWESOME DAY..!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Where are the AMERICAN WORKERS on today’s CONSTRUCTION JOBS..?

OK. So this is the post I wanted to use last night. But unfortunately, my computer crashed.

Thankfully, this morning I was able to recover it…

So yesterday I got a job through the temp service that I was blessed to get because they tell me the work is SLOW…

It’s a low level low paid construction site clean up job…

Hey, anything is good at this point.

And when we get on the job the first thing I notice is the SIZE of this job…

IT’S HUGE..!

How can there be no jobs or how can work be slow with jobs out there like this one..? I think to myself.

That is, until I notice the second thing…

There are NO AMERICAN WORKERS on this site..!

ZERO.

Well, that is aside from me and my temp worker partner…

There are NONE OTHER THAN US..!

And we’re just some low level low paid peons..!

Damn this was crazy..! I thought.

All throughout the day asshole supervisors are walking around barking orders at spanish employees who could undoubtedly care-less.

Hell, they probably don’t understand much of what is getting barked at them in the first place.

Then add to that the level of workmanship displayed out on this job…

Much of the finished work looked horrible.

Which made me wonder…

Are these motherfuckers even QUALIFIED to really do the type of work they’re being hired to complete..?

I mean, how do you even check references for many of which are surely illegal immigrants..?

Crazy…

But, it’s the world we live in.

And just like how they have come and sucked up the jobs…

Doing whatever it takes to get the work.

We must do the same.

Hell, I know I have, too. What, with my criminal record and all.

It’s a dog eat dog world.

It’s sink or swim.

And if you don’t swim…

Then you’ll drown.

And I refuse to drown…!

We gotta get back out there and take back the workforce.

Show these employers that there are AMERICAN WORKERS who are just as deserving of these jobs as the immigrants they have put in our place..!

I’ll tell you this, too. It’s an interesting thing being around an employer who has nothing but Spanish folks working for him….

Many of whom don’t speak much if any English…

Being an American and one who is doing the “shit work…”

Those employers kind of just look at you with a mix of shamefulness and “hey, it is what it is.”

Almost like, “could you even imagine what I’m paying these guys.

To which I think in return…

“Oh yeah, a lot more than ME..!”

But like I assumed the big “boss-man” would think…

It is what it is.

These Spanish folks have put themselves out there in ways we have not to get these jobs.

Many of us Americans just use them as an EXCUSE to give up and not even TRY to find the work because we ASSUME they have taken it all.

Well, with that sort of thinking they are bound to keep it.

But me, personally…

I’m going to go out there and get it.

I’m going to stop justifying why it is the way it is, and I’m going to change things.

For myself.

Others should do the same.

That is if they are out of work and blame immigrants as the reason for why.

Stop being a pussy.

Go back out there and TAKE BACK these jobs if you feel you deserve them.

Go show these employers that they are missing out on a real opportunity EVERYDAY that they DON’T have YOU working for them…!

That’s just my view.

And for more, check out the little video that sort of accompanies all this.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

a new painting I just created for an upcoming paintnite..!

Just created a new painting for an upcoming paint party I just booked yesterday…

It’s a Valentine’s Day theme and I think it’s going to be a huge hit..!

Let me know what you think..!

Check it out at facebook.com/paintnitewithjoe

An Awesome Post from an Awesome Guy.

Hey, that’s right..!

I am an AWESOME GUY..!

So…

It’s Monday morning and there’s no work for me today.

IMG_1220

The snowy conditions as of late have made work obsolete. So now today I will focus on The After Prison Show and also trying to line up a new venue or two for Paint Nite  with Joe events.

What a storm we just had to deal with this past weekend, too.

It was like a hurricane mixed with a white out…

Guess that’s what a blizzard is, though.

We got about 2 inches of snow, total.

Where I’m located, that’s considered a state of emergency.

It was a nasty storm, though.

Hell, the wind was so bad Friday night that I woke up at about 3 am to a pounding outside my apartment window…

Turns out the vinyl siding was being ripped off the the outside of my apartment building and was banging up against the side of it.

It was also banging against the window, too.

That made me worry about the window getting busted out. So in order to prevent that from happening…

I pulled the long piece of vinyl siding in through the window and duck taped the window shut afterwards. It wasn’t a pretty fix. But it got us through the night.

Now the piece of vinyl siding just dangles as a grim reminder of what was… ( that sounds so cliche.)

IMG_1221

So now with the weekend over and the snow still here, the temp service is telling me that work could be slow for a couple of days…

Great news at the end of the month with rent right around the corner…

But I’m sure things will improve and if they don’t…

Well, I’ll just have to go out there and “get it on my own…”

In my old life that would have entailed selling drugs or robbing someone with drugs.

In my new life…

That means going out there today and possibly putting in an application with this construction company I’ve been flagging for (if they’re even open today.) And also talking to some new venues about hosting a Paint Nite With Joe event.

So that’s the game plan.

Sounds like a pretty good one right…?

I mean, a lot better than that of my New England Patriots yesterday against Denver…

Oh my God.

Hey, congrats to Peyton Manning and The Denver Broncos. They played a good game yesterday in relation to the horrible game my guys played and they deserve the trip back to the Super Bowl.

I just hope they do better than the last time they went to the Super Bowl. A time when I was still in prison and was prompted to write this post.

So good luck to them.

My prediction though…

And this is not the prediction of a guy who is “in his feelings” because his team just missed the ride to the Super Bowl…

But my unbiased prediction is that Cam Newton and The Carolina Panthers are going to ANNIHILATE The Broncos.

Just my prediction.

Moving on…

So if you have left comments lately, and have wondered why I have not responded…

Well, the answer is because I have been in my feelings because my New England Patriots just missed their ride to Super Bowl 50.

No, I’m kidding.

The reason is because…

Well..

I guess there is NO REAL reason.

I’ve just been slacking a lot, to say the least. ( Yes..! Awesome play on words..!)

I need to tighten up.

And I’m trying to just that.

So, I’m here now crawling back to wordpress and begging for forgiveness for my lack of disregard for just how awesome the support all of you have shown me has been…!

I need that back..!

SO PLEASE COME BACK TO ME..!

Also, in relation to The After Prison Show things have slacked up there, as well. And not really because I have wanted them to. But because I’ve been working a lot lately and not really having the money or time to invest in the project that I would like to have.

I do have some awesome ideas for upcoming episodes and I hope to get to shooting some of those soon.

Something I also want to start doing is video blogging more. I feel like that will help me a lot when I don’t have the time I would like to have to sit and type out a post.

I feel like we’re missing a lot of great content because of my lack of time to put content out there. So I’m hoping that vlogging will help in that regard.

I’ll be starting that today actually. So we’ll see how that works out.

That’s about it for this post folks.

Bottom line is I need to tighten up. Especially considering there is so much I’m hoping to accomplish. It’s not been easy to manage my time out here, and I’m trying to be more time conscious. I believe that will help in some regards and as I attempt that, you should consider it, as well.

We all have things we want to do and not enough time to do them…

What is the solution..?

“Make time.”

Take care and look for my new vlogging addition coming today..!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The first event I’ve ever hosted… A paintnite with Joe.

Hello WordPress. I have failed you. I have become so wrapped up in life and just how awesome it is, that I have neglected what was once so important to me.

Even though it may seem like afterprisonshow.com is not as important to me, it most certainly is..!

Like I said, I’ve just become wrapped up in life and all of it’s awesomeness..!

Ok. So let’s catch up…

Just did the paint party Tuesday night after working for 8 hours in frigid temps…

It was 30 something degrees with a wind chill in the teens..!

That’s been the story of my life lately working this construction flagging job.

So Tuesday I go to work, freeze to death for 8 hours, then have to hurry up and finish getting ready for the event as soon as I get off work.

Sooooooooo much preparation went into getting this event together.

Trying to get all the supplies needed for 30 potential attendees was not an easy job. Not a cheap one.

But I got it done.
So after work I was putting the finishing touches together all the while my bank account was overdrafted…

Not that I didn’t have money, just couldn’t get to the bank to deposit some checks in time with all the running around I had to do.

So we load up the car at 5:30…

An hour before the show…

Then we haul ass down the road to where there is a check cashing place where I try to cash a small check just to have some cash on me for ticket sales of change is needed.

But they want me to fill out an application just to cash a check. So I say “never mind…”

Screw it.

I go to the bar with no money on hand…

And my bank account overdrawn.

And add to that Levi is en route. Or better yet…

Late.

Oh. My. God…

I am in panic mode.

My iPad that I wanted to film the event with is dead. I mean, so dead it won’t even cut on….

Could things go any worse for a first time event…?!

We get to the bar and start setting up. 

  
Oh and “we…”

I mean, me and my girl.

So we start setting things up and the bar owner…

Special shout out to Ashley…

Ashley comes up and hands me the first money of the evening I’d see.

A good amount too.

Ok I breathe…

 Just a breath though…

At least I’ve got some cash on hand now if it’s needed.

But the real test is still ahead.

Levi shows up and becomes my right hand man as he always is. That dude is as real as it gets and he believe in me and all the shit I’m always trying to do…

So special shout out to him as well..

And to my girl too.

She really held shit down.

So folks started showing up and ticket sales started getting taken care of by Levi while I worked on other things that needed to be done…

Like finishing setting up all the tables.

After everyone arrived, I had 16 attendees out of 30 potentially. 

That was a good showing, I thought…

It was time to start the event…

I wanted Levi to film it off of my iPad that now had some juice.

If ever there is a more telling tale of how bad we need a camera that is compatable with input audio, it’s the intro video from this event…

Levi is in the back, I’m upfront welcoming everyone…

And you can’t hear me at all over the background noise.

Oh well.

So I begin the event and I am NERVOUS…!!!!

Hey remember all that anxiety I used to deal with bad when I first got released from prison THREE MONTHS AGO…!?!?

Well it was like that, times a hundred, just starting the event…!!!

But we got it started and I got right into after what I told Levi was my improv comedy routine for a possible career in stand up….

Yeah, I got some laughs. And laughs are always a good ice breaker.

Quickly though, I got right into the painting.

And from that point it is a paint party in all its splendor.

Two hours later it ended and I nailed it…

Proof is in the facebook like page I created for this second venture of mine….

Check it out here.

I’m working on another event asap.!!

And right now I’m sittin at work ready to work out in the freezing cold.

But gotta do what I must.

Someone gotta bring in the bacon for The After Prison Show…

So….

  
I do so while looking..! Lol

Til next time.

Whenever that might be…

I’ve been smoking crack lately…

I’ve been MIA lately, to say the least…

The reason for that is because I’ve been smoking crack.

No, I’m kidding..!

But I sure got your attention didn’t I..?

Note to bloggers, myself included…

Want eyes on your content…?

Then use big time titles to your sh&t like this one.

Hey, have a f&%kin sense of humor..!

But, hey…

Now that I’ve got your attention, let me see if I can keep it…

and maybe also warp your mind a little to  get you to do a few things…

But we’ll get to all that  in a minute…

So, MIA I have been lately and why…

Well, I’ve actually been working a legitimate JOB this last week..!

Yep, thanks to some pretty awesome people who really believe in me, they lined me and my new buddy Wayne up with this construction “flagging traffic” gig…

Sounds pretty lame, right..?

Well, hell..!

We’re making  good money just to hold a sign up..!

We’re making a hundo a day and we don’t even have to get dirty..!

Oh, by the way…

“A hundo…”

That’s one hundred dollars.

We just stand in the road, looking good, watching people drive by…

Some even wave at us…

Then again, some yell and scream at us and tell us to get out of the f&%king road.

Someone blew me a kiss.

I’m so awesome.

So yeah working…

Not Crack.

That’s the reason why I been MIA.

Oh, and let me tell you about my working buddy…

This guy is about as gangster as it gets.

It’s crazy, because where I live which I can NOW FINALLY DISCLOSE…

It was bureaucratic bullshit that prevented me from doing so before…

But, where I live…

In the heart of downtown Newport News.

I mean DOWN-TOWN…

It is a BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD area.

And there is always shit going on down here…

Hell let me just give you one of headlines from the last few days…

There was this big shoot out with police.

It’s pretty much shit like this on a daily basis…

But back to my super gangster work buddy…

He is always telling me about the crazy shit that goes on in “the hood.”

Hell, turns out there is a MAJOR GANG TURF WAR going on right outside my front door and I was completely unawares.

Nice to know these things though.

You know, just in case I’m ever riding down the main strip and sh&t “pops off.”

You sort of gotta always be prepared for sh%t like that in downtown Newport News.

So yep.

It’s been working a legitimate job lately, and NOT smoking crack that has been the reason I’ve been missing in action.

Oh, and that last post that just said “I’ve been working lately..”

Yeah, that was an attempt to put a post together that I never had a chance to put anything more together on…

And then, somehow just decided to post itself.

Now, on to all the mind warp talk…

Hey if you’re not familiar with the youtube channel that accompanies this blog, then you really should check it out.

New content is coming soon.

Got some new episodes in mind right now and I hope to get one of those shot this upcoming week.

So in the meantime, you really should check out what we’ve already been doing…

And then subscribe to our channel.

Yep.

Mind warp.

Well, that’s it for now.

Take care.

And try not to smoke any crack.

It really isn’t good for you.
