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?

Nasty.

Disgusting.

Repulsive.

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.

 

 

 

 

Prison Rape and Candy Bars Pt. Two

I’m going to let you in on some insider information about AfterPrisonShow…

For those of you who have been here since the days when I was in prison, and this blog first began..

And this wasn’t called The After Prison Show, ( which now has been shorten to AfterPrisonShow to coincide with the YouTube channel name.)  .

Back when this blog was called JoeWritesHisWrongs….

I made a post called Prison Rape and Candy Bars.

Well, here is the insider information about this site…

Did you know that THAT post is my TOP VIEWED POST EVER..!?

WTF?!?!

Everyday I look at the for this site and THAT POST is ALWAYS viewed..!

Sometimes even multiple times a day.!

Because of this, I almost even changed the name of my YouTube channel to the name of that post.!

With all of this being said, and known, I really wanted to make a VIDEO on my channel about the actual Prison Rape and Candy Bars post.

Better yet, I’M GOING TO MAKE A VIDEO ABOUT THE POST!

But the reason I haven’t done so yet, is because I couldn’t find the exact video that we had to watch when I first arrived at prison.

And believe me…

I’d been looking for it.

Well, guess what..?

I FINALLY FOUND IT..!

This is the video I had to watch in prison that had pale little frail white kids white knuckle to the bottom of their seats…

Truth be told, I was, too…

I’m going to make a video for AfterPrisonShow on YouTube using this video, and offering my take on the things they talk about in it.

That will be coming soon…

But I figured all of you who do take the time to check out this blog and have dealt with my serious bouts of infidelity… (Yes, YouTube is my true heart. I’m sorry. lol)

All of you deserve a treat.

Flowers would be ideal. But in place of that, how about a REAL LIVE “PRISON RAPE AND CANDY BARS VIDEO…?”

What follows is the video I just recently found…

That is very “GRIPPING…”

Maybe a poor choice of words.

Still, this is the Prison Rape and Candy Bars video I had to watch in prison. And that I’ll soon be making MY OWN VIDEO based off…

Enjoy.

BTW. The sound quality on this video is very low for some reason.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s a lonely life for an ex prisoner who works all the time.

It’s 5 in the morning and I can’t remember if I have to be at work at 7 this morning or at 8…

Quite sure I’m already in overtime too. But that is the norm for my job…

Overtime comes pretty early in the week.

Hell, my boss told me Wednesday night that he was already at 53 hrs for the week.!

This job allows no time for a life or anything else, and yet it’s time and more of it that I need badly if I’m ever going to get where I really hope to be with The After Prison Show.

I’m working 10…

12…

Even 16 hrs a day somedays and still trying to find whatever time I can to shoot, edit, and upload not only new videos to The After Prison Show…

But more importantly…

Awesome videos..!

I’m fucking tired, though.

And I have work in an hour or two which is sure to be hell. But even with that, I wanted to take some time and tell you all of what I’ve been doing lately in an effort to get the show out there.

First, I finally have the new camera..!

Took me long enough to get that, right..! lol

But I did finally get this awesome little canon vixia camera that does everything that I needed a camera to do.

And it’s compatible with the outsourced mics..!

So that is fucking awesome.

I also purchased  Sony Vegas movie editing software and that will help to make the high def video I shoot look even better with the use of effects, green-screens, and all sorts of other stuff, too.

But guess what..?

The cd-rom drive on my laptop is broken…

So I haven’t yet been able to upload the software.

In-turn, I had to order an external cd-rom drive that I should hopefully have by next week.

It will be then that I really try to get moving further and faster with video content.

Also, when I’m not shooting videos or working like a madman, I’m on YouTube literally studying why what works for all these successful channels.

See many of you may brush off YouTube as an over saturated media source for any and everything…

And to hear of a guy trying to “make it on YouTube” may sound a bit far fetched…

But I truly believe it can be done, and that I can be the one to get it done.

But…

That does bring me to another little hindrance that I’ve been also dealing with. And that is the lack of tangible support that I have.

And I’m not talking about views and subscribers, either.( Even though, I am a little lacking there, as well.)

I’m talking about having people to actually be there to help me create these videos.

Like in real time, and  real life.

That also makes me realize, that I sort of have no life…

And no friends.

Truth be told, I am a loser.

My life consist of getting up at all hours of the day and night, trying to squeeze out whatever I can from the little time I try to allow myself before work. And then going to work and leaving it all on the field. Only to come home completely exhausted and wanting nothing other than to just take a shower, get something to eat, and go to sleep.

And sometimes, that’s all I really, literally, have time to do…

I might get off at 2 am and have to be right back at 6am.

That’s been the case just this week as a matter of fact.

But yep….

I’m a loser with no friends trying to create on YouTube whenever I’m not getting worked to death.

And hell, you wouldn’t even know these little truths from looking at my videos…

Why…?

Because…

I’m used to being alone, I guess.

Prison for 7 years might make you feel like that.

But one thing about it, I always find a way to entertain myself…

And others, I hope.

I have some pretty awesome video ideas upcoming. But I won’t spoil the fun by telling you all those just yet.

Instead, in closing, I’ll leave you with a link to my latest video…

I hope you’ll check it out and let me know what you think.

Thanks, and take care.

Have an awesome weekend and I look forward to talking with you again real soon.

Here’s the video..!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rivers and roads to and from prison

Well I know I’m pretty much a stranger here these days. But I do miss my blog and blogging friends and everyone else who comments and checks my content out.

Life has just been life lately…

Busy.

Hectic.

Deadly…

But such is life that we adapt, (or die.) And we keep it moving.

So I’m here with all sorts of goodies.

First, I’ve been painting up a storm in preparation of an upcoming Paint Nite with Joe event.

Here is two examples of paintings I’ve done lately….

IMG_1568IMG_1589

So yep…

Those are some of the pieces I’ve been working on. There are more…

But the images are sideways are I don’t have time to figure out how to get the right-side up right now.

I really am proud of these pieces, though…

Next up, I finally got a chance to put together a new video for The After Prison Show.

It’s called Rivers and Roads to and from prison.

Hey that’s the same thing that I titled this post as..! Lol

Please check it out and let me know your thoughts. It’s a lot different from what I’ve been doing with more recent videos.

It’s a really good video, I think….

Other than that, I’m back to work since the tragedy that happened last week. It’s been tough, but things have to move forward…

And I have to keep doing the most that I can to make a positive impactful path for myself- and others.

Thanks for all of your support, still…

Even when I’m lacking on my posting.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The perfect job for a felon with no job skills, training, or transportation.

There is always a story when it comes to the daily adventures of Joe.

I don’t mean to speak of myself in third person.

But there really is no other way to put it…

OK.

Well, maybe there is another way to put it.

Hell, maybe there are a hundred other ways to put it.

But that’s what we’re going with here..!

So…

Yesterday I’m given some work through the temp service and it’s not the normal construction laborer…

Or flagging work.

Or banquet serving.

Or laundry gig.

Nope.

This time it’s holding a sign up on the side of the road for a bingo hall.

I was offered this job before, and I turned it down.

I won’t lie.

My pride wouldn’t let me do this at first.

All I could think about is those people who have to get dressed up and dance their little jig while holding up a sign for the tax places…

I really did not want to do this job.

But desperate times call for desperate measures…

And yesterday I found myself in an Uber on my way to this job.

Spent $20.00 just to get there, too.

But got there I did. And the first thing I noticed when I arrived…

Murals.

IMG_1439

IMG_1440

 

There were murals painted on the side of the building…

2 of them.

I walked inside, spoke with the woman. She pointed the sign out to me and I was out to the street to walk around holding up a sign.

The first thought that went through my mind…

This has got to be what it feels like to be homeless and holding a sign up on the side of the road.

It was pretty humiliating, at first.

Then I thought, “I wonder if I’d make more money just holding up a sign that said homeless.”

After awhile, the humiliating feeling started to fade as I started thinking about other things…

Like how I could incorporate some murals at this bingo hall to help advertise…

Then I started looking at places on the building where I could do some murals.

IMG_1443

IMG_1444

Then I started thinking about when I went to take my break, how I was going to go in there, find the guy in charge, and pitch him on some work.

Then I started thinking about “mopeds…”

Yep.

Mopeds.

Little 50cc scooters that are street legal and you don’t need a license for…

I need a moped.

And here is why…

  1. I will never see a license unless I find more/better work, where I can make more money to begin paying off my court fines.
  2. I won’t find that more/better work unless I have transportation to and from work.
  3. I could be more mobile and less reliant on individuals.
  4. I could even go out and sell mural work and paint parties to other venues… Getting there when I need to… And getting where I need to go… Self sufficiently.
  5. I could save the “ton” of money that I’m spending in Ubers and rides… In two days, I’ve spent $50.00 in rides… That’s a tenth of what a moped is going to cost me.

 

 

So, yep… I need a moped.

I thought all of this through thoroughly while standing on the side of the road yesterday…

It’s crazy the stuff you think about while standing on the side of the road in a humiliating manner. Almost anything just to keep your mind off of what it is that your doing.

By the way…

I’m going to need some help trying to get this moped too.

So you know…

I was thinking of a crowd funding campaign.

Maybe like if I could get EVERYONE to invest like FIVE DOLLARS into Joe’s Moped Mobility Fund…

Sounds like this thing is coming together already..!

OK.

Just throwing that out there…

So, the day continued. And at 2 PM, I took my break.

And just like I envisioned, I went inside, found who I needed to find…

THE OWNER of the bingo hall..!

I introduced myself as “Joe,” the guy outside holding the sign up. And I said I’m also an artist who specializes in mural painting.

He was very interested in this and there seems to be a good chance that I might actually be able to line up some mural work at this place.

Oh, and not to mention…

PAINT NITE WITH JOE EVENTS..!

I talked to him about those, too. And he seemed very interested in that, as well.

And what a location this venue would be for those…

He can probably seat 500 people here..!

Just I have no idea what he is going to want as far as money goes to rent this place for those events…

IMG_1446

IMG_1445

It’s a really nice location.

We’ll see what happens.

I have to put together some ideas and meet with him next week.

There is a good chance this could turn out to be my first mural job in the free world.

All because I decided to swallow my pride and do whatever I must to get by right now…

Well, I say do whatever I must…

But I’m not too sure about all that entirely.

I mean, and this is going to sound wAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAy out of left field…

But I found this guy on craigslist yesterday who wants to buy my dirty underwear.

How’s that for an ending leaving you wanting more..?

Or, maybe way less.
