Buffering – What's Next, Who's Next?

Hey peeps,

I thought it was necessary to give my awesome followers a fair warning that something’s coming. Something very overdue. So, my friends, later tonight or 100% tomorrow we will all get another glimpse into the world of The Red Journal. I have been hemming and hawing internally for too long creatively. It’s time for all of us to see who’s been doing all the killing in Jamestown and what Jamestown’s finest will do about it.

From Dark

I walked in the shadows
before I knew any light
ashamed, guilty, and full of regret
my only out was running toward the dark
where I belonged
there, to slither between mistake after mistake
and masquerade with a beating heart
the scene, was set in rhythm and sweat
people would stare, stare straight through me
I wanted it…I deserved it
nobody allowed to peek beyond that curtain
to see who was in control, what was in control
all they did was help bury it deeper
beneath guise of a lie
then came the day where a key unlocked a clue
a tiny sparkling light
which found me, in await, to be let free
…from dark

Ashing Through The Snow

Hey everybody,

Well, looks like I/we have survived the mother of all storms, also known as…”Snowmageddon 2020″. Yup, Mother Nature and one of her biggest ass-kicking storms yet, brought upward to 70, 80, and over a 100 cms of snow. This definite storm of the century blew in last Friday and didn’t stop until sometime mid-Saturday. Gifting us with an unprecedented shit-ton of snow. Enough to turn your stomach each time you peer out the window. There has been a state of emergency in effect all week because we got so much. I do believe it’s to be lifted early tomorrow morning. It was that bad to initiate a full week of lockdown. I honestly think I have PTSD from it, in particular from the wind. The wind was the scariest part, I have never experienced high winds that strong before in my entire life. They got close to 200 kms/hr. The windows in the house looked as if they were breathing and every now and again, there was this eerie sound throughout the house like a boat was turning starboard or something. Pair that with the ludacris amount of snow that was constantly falling. Well…

Snow Way!!! You're From Newfoundland?

Hey All,

Yup, you’re reading that map from our local news channel correctly, it looks like tomorrow will be the end of my back. The whole city is bracing for one of the worst winter storms we’ve seen in years. Gas stations, liquor stores, cab companies, and grocery stores are making a killing. Oh, and I’m convinced this phenomenon of storm chips have become a new part of our culture. There’s even a hashtag all about it #stormchips

Hey all,

Up for a laugh?

Over the holidays I went to the Mall to shop. I hate the mall and the only reason I was there was because I had a gift card and wanted to use it for some last minute presents. It was the 23rd and I had a small window in the afternoon to shop, so I popped by and made a straight dash to this particular store in which I had the gift card for. All I was focused on was getting in and out as soon as possible before the place got too crazy with other holiday shoppers.
