Hi I'm Joe Patterson. I am a writer at heart who is a big geek for film, music, and literature, which have all inspired me to be a writer. I rap, write stories both short and long, and I'm also aspiring to be an author and a filmmaker.
Colin was driving fast in the warm dark night on his way to West Street with a gun in his lap. He was looking for a man named Shamrock who caused the death of his sister Vicky in a drunk driving accident last year one night after leaving a club. Shamrock was on his way to prison for involuntary manslaughter and he’s going to be gone for a very long time, but he was able to posted bail a few months ago because he comes from a wealthy family.

What I wouldn’t give for just a moment of peace. My name is Giver and a year ago I sold my soul. By the way I don’t mean that as a figure of speech, it’s legit. After years of life weighing down heavier than it ever has, I decided to throw my soul in the ether.

November 30, 2013: The day Paul Walker Died
I remember exactly what I was doing on this night 10 years ago. It was Saturday night and I was watching a marathon of the Fast and the Furious movies, specifically the first two entries in the series.

I don’t remember what exactly I was watching, but I do remember turning back to whatever it was when The Fast and the Furious (2001) went on commercial break. As I turned back to E! Channel during the commercial I saw a big red flashing E! News headline underneath the movie I was watching that said: “BREAKING NEWS: PAUL WALKER, DEAD!”

This food is about to be SMACK!!! Ain’t that right, Kendrick?” Kendrick was looking across the street distracted by what met his eyes. “K-dot! What you lookin’ at?” Elijah asked. “Y’all see him over there?” Kendrick asked.
