I bought someone heroin just so I could get a ride.

My God I am tired.

As I type this I am just coming off a 7 day work week.

I have been busting my ass this past week. Pouring concrete everyday. And trying to do as much video work as I can for AfterPrisonShow as I can possibly muster in my free time.

Now that I think about it though…

I’m like, “what free time?”

I’m always working. Whether at my full time ass busting job. Or on my video venture that I am so passionate about.

It’s crazy.

Most days I have to be at work around 3 am.

Or 5 am.

And even with those early work days, I still find myself getting up an extra hour or two early to try and squeeze in any video work that I can.

But all of that is just my food for thought insight for ya.

I’ve really wanted to begin vlogging. But that is a lot of everyday video work that honestly, I just don’t have the time for right now.

So this “blog,” is where I can fill you in on the extra details that go into this journey of mine…

“Trying to find success after prison on a major level.”

There has been a lot to fill you in on, too.

Where to even begin…

For starters, I just recently bought a moped.

That now is my back and forth transportation to work. Which means I no longer have to rely on Uber or Lyft. Which, honestly, were KILLING my pockets.

I would spend about 100 dollars a week just in work rides.

Now I have a nice little death trap that gets me back and forth to work for about 5 dollars a week.

It’s not the safest transportation. But it is cheap at least.

By the way I’ve never rode a moped before in my life. Not until the day I actually bought this thing.

That’s kind of a funny story too.

I found the moped on OfferUp. And in order to get to where the moped was…

I needed a ride.

Well, the only person who could give me a ride was a heroin junkie type friend of mine.

I called this person and said I needed a ride.

I said I would pay them for that ride, as well.

So of course they came right over at the mention of money.

Then this friend told me that before we could go, they needed to stop in the projects for a second. And that they would need for me to give them some money so they could go get some dope.

I told this junkie friend of mine “ok.”

“I’ll give you some money so you can go get high. But I need you to bring your ass right back here so I can go get this moped.”

They went and got the dope.

Did the dope.

All before I even thought about stepping foot in their vehicle.

And then my junkie friend, my junkie friends-junkie friend, and I all rode out to get me my moped.

When we got to the location to purchase the moped, my plan was to hopefully load the moped in the back of my junkie friends suv.

That didn’t work out.

I test rode the moped and was a bit shaky on the damn thing.

I even almost crashed it.

Well, with the moped unable to fit in the back of my junkie friends suv, wouldn’t you know I had to ride this thing back to my house from the location I purchased it at.

This was like a 40 minute ride during rush hour. And through two busy cities!

Yep, that’s how I got to where I needed to be to buy the moped. And also how I learned to ride it.

Riding through two different cities during rush hour.


By the way, these are the real REAL behind the scenes moments here at AfterPrisonShow. So only those of you who take the time to read these posts will ever know these things.

Oh yeah, and like three days after I bought the moped. I crashed it.

I was going about 10 miles per hour when I locked the front wheel up and had the damn thing slide out from underneath me.

That shit hurt like HELL.

What does prison food taste like?

So today is Tuesday September 6th. And today is the day school starts again.

The end of Summer is upon us.

Yesterday, I put together a video showing just how individuals in prison prepare a meal from items purchased from the prison commissary.

What’s even better is that I had my girlfriend help me prepare that meal, and she TRIED IT..!

Her reaction is absolutely priceless.

I was/and still am sick as a dog while filming this video. I’ve come down with some sort of bad flu that has me very weak today.

But you couldn’t even tell I was feeling deathly ill while watching this video.

A dreamers work never rest.

Even while sick.

What do you think about when you think of a prison meal?




Well, would you believe that prisoners can buy items from their prison commissary and use those items to make a meal that actually does taste good?

A lot better than the food you’re fed in the chow hall, at least.

This latest video shows just how to prepare one such meal. And is even tasted by someone who has never before experienced anything like that.

My girlfriend!

What do you think her reaction to that meal will be?

Do you think she’ll like it?

Well if I have done my job and aroused your curiosity. Then please check out the link and let me know what you think!

How to make a prison meal and taste reaction!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by AfterPrisonShow.com 

I hope you have a taste


















There is no rest while in pursuit of what some might consider impossible… Even on Labor Day.

It’s Labor Day and that’s an important day for me.

  1. I have today off from my hell-like job.
  2. I have an opportunity to work on my videos and this blog.
  3. It’s almost been one year since I’ve been released from prison.

Wow. Next month marks one year since I came home from being locked up for almost a decade.

I’ve done a hell of a lot in that year, too!

I’m very proud of how far I’ve gotten just to be where I am now.

There is a lot of news to report about this blog and AfterPrisonShow on YouTube.

So lets begin.

First, there will be some changes coming to this blog very soon. Not really sure what exactly those changes will be. To be honest. But I have cancelled my premium plan here on wordpress. Which I think will mean something like this blog may go back to Joewriteshiswrongs.wordpress.com I think that is one of the major ones…

But no matter what changes do come. I will continue to post new content and updates here as often as I’m able too.

Next, there are some new videos to look out for on YouTube from AfterPrisonShow.

These new videos are ones that I think you will find highly entertaining and interesting. So please check them out as I get them uploaded.

I really appreciate everyone who has stuck with Joewriteshiswrongs/AfterPrisonShow throughout all this time. And I want you to know that I feel like I’m really starting to find my way with all of this that I have set out to do.

Things are definitely starting to pick up for me and my social ventures. And I want to thank all of you who have supported an ex prisoner turned good guy who is just trying to turn it all around for once in his life.

I hope my story and my perseverance will serve to motivate others somehow.

And just know that even on Holidays such as Labor Day when folks are supposed to rest from labor…

I’m working.

Whether at my job or at my dream…

I’m always working.

Check out some of what you may have missed too!

How Prison Completely Changed My Life.

A lot of people at AfterPrisonShow on YouTube have been asking me lately just what exactly I was incarcerated for…

I wanted to put together a video that would answer that fully.

What I ended up creating is what I’m calling my proudest piece yet.

A powerful video that gives viewers an in depth insight into what I was locked up for and also how I took the worst possible circumstance and turned it into an opportunity to completely change my life for the better.

Please take a moment to watch this video.

It’s titled How Prison Completely Changed My Life.
