Gates of Hell

By the title your probably wondering what in the world? Am I right? Well let me explain, these places called the 'gates of hell' are supposedly all over the world, but I'm not 100% positive, I knew of one in Columbus,OH it is also known as the Blood Bowl, 'cause I guess some kid died there once while skateboarding. There is a lot of graffiti art there,When I went I didn't go in as deep as  would of liked, but some day maybe I'll be able to go deeper. I'm not going to give anymore deep history on the gates, 'cause my info might be wrong. I will however share some pictures with you. First I want to show you what we,( my friends and I found, no I know there all over the place, but we didn't think about it till this point.) 

What is this you ask? Well it's where the sidewalk ends of course.

Now we enter the Gates of Hell
This is the front entrance to the Gates of Hell, looks like once you enter you don't come out. Be ready to enter Hell!

This is inside the tunnel looking out, yes it is VERY dark inside, if you go here, you WILL NEED a FLASHLIGHT, oh and I recommend boots, my friends and I didn't have boots on, but next time I go I am wearing boots so I can go deeper there is a lot of water, and please be careful, there is a little bit of walking before getting to the tunnel itself.
Now we move on to some of the art.

 I am not sure who this man is suppose to be, I've seen other pictures on the web, that with the other surrounding pieces of art, I have confirmed that this is the same man I have seen, the paint just looks like it has been retouch up since the one's I've seen online. When I go deeper into the tunnel next time I will hopefully find more!

Some of the art is really detailed take a look at this one
and see for yourself.

I was not able to get the whole picture in the shot, it is very though to get pictures in the tunnel, very claustrophobic inside, but it's totally worth it.

That is all the pictures I am going to post in the blog if you want to see the rest, or see more please visit my Facebook or my deviantArt

Limited Time?

I don't watch the news, but briefly before Jeopardy was on, I caught the end of the news, and this news segment really got me thinking. Someone in Utah was being put to death  by firing squad.(no longer allowed, unless convicted before 2004). He could of choose lethal injection, but he choose firing squad,but what really got me thinking is he was executed at 12am this morning. The news segment was at about 7pm Thursday. So with only a few hours to live, what would/could he do with his life? I am not a criminal(obviously) but it still got me thinking, if I knew I only had a few hours left to live what would I do with the time I did have?

Bringing me back to my bucket list, a lot of the stuff on my list cannot be done in a few hours, or a few days if you really think about it. I know for one thing I would want to have a nice meal(like most criminals, normally get one last meal.) What would I want that meal to be, that I have not thought about. Something nice, but something I know I would remember if I were to still live. Steak and Potatoes would be nice, but I think I would want more. I would probably have a whole feast of stuff, pig out sure, but mine as well it would be my last few hours to eat. I would complete what is possible on my bucket list. I would want to make the last hours on earth more meaningful that any other time I had spent on earth. Which also gets me thinking we do not know when we will die, it could be today, tomorrow, next week, next month. I try to live my life to the fullest each day, but someday's  its really hard. Someday's I feel sad, others angry, and feelings are not the only thing to intervene. I cannot get out of the house most days, so most days I end up sitting around doing nothing. I am trying to write a book, and I plan on getting it published, if it goes well, I actually plan in writing a lot more books. I should also work on a memoir of my life, I'm just not sure how I would feel right now putting that out there, but a fiction story is a good start.

 So now I'm asking you, if you knew you only had a few hours left to live what would you do with the time you had? Would you live life like you do everday, or would you change your life just for those few hour

Even though he killed people I would like to thank Ronnie Lee Gardner for inspiring me to write this, somehow through your death it inspired me and really got me thinking. I need to work on my bucket list more, and actually TRY to do something with my life even though I'm with limited transportation. I can write my book as a start.

You should do it too.

How TWLOHA has effected me.(Order for TWLOHA street team!)

As some of you may know TWLOHA has had a big impact in my life, at sometimes it may not be as much as others, but it's still there, in the words, music and more! I spread the word about TWLOHA as much as I can. Not everyone will listen thought, but I think that's all there choice weather they decide to listen or not, and that's not just the case with an organization, but with anything I'm talking to someone about, I know my friends will listen, but strangers it's hard to tell. I found out mainly about TWLOHA through Hawthorne Heights, I was mainly on myspace then, and I saw a bulletin about Casey Calvert, and I cried. I read that the band supported TWLOHA and looked more into the organization, and I'm very glad I did. I read Renee's story and also cried. I do have a story of my own, I know my story is not complete, but I keep going I keep trying with the help of friends, and music I can make it even easier. Thank you!
