I'd just like to use this space to say how I thoroughly dislike the new profile page foisted on us by the Flickrbook® from Yahoo!® designers. Yahoo has smashed Flickr, and all its loyal users. WTG peeps. The new group stuff was the last straw.

 

As for me, well, I'm just a dog on the InterWebNets.. yep, that's me........... with toy cams, that is.

Jakey's lessons to live by:

 

We all need to use more FILM, Eh?

Focus is highly overrated.

Less is more, in most photography situations. And in life.

 

Lo-Res Por Vida!!

love to hear from you, feel free to flickr-mail me anytime!

 

Quote of the Day: Hey, hey, hey — don't be mean. No need to be mean. 'Cause, remember: no matter where you go... [pause] there you are.

 

If you know the quote, we WILL be friends

Jakes_World is a great host and keeper of all things DMU. Flickr should pay attention to folks like her - they keep communities going!

Jakes is a former surfer babe who now tends bar in the Pig Sty, where she serves up cold beers and stiff liquor drinks. Meeting Jakes in person is on my bucket list.

Until then, I will just keep on enjoying her friendly banter in the bar, while pondering all of the vintage shots in her stream (the beach ones are my fav, as I am a surfer babe at heart too).

I never met Jakes but I follow her stream. On the surface it looks like random low res gibberish, but there is a method to her madness. She reminds me of a lost Moriyama, searching to come into her own. She's almost there.

Carla is a paradox: friendly and forgiving, yet willing to suffer a broken ankle to make a stand against Almond's nagging. Word has it, after she broke her foot in his ass she left behind a little toe. You'll be hard pressed to find any active group on Flickr that doesn't have Jakes_World as an administrator.

What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” and that just about sums up Jake`s World so if you skip her photo stream you can`t say you weren`t warned ................ xo

Jakes World, is a topsy turvy joyride, of immense pleasure. JW is no dog, in fact she has the sexiest legs I have ever had the pleasure to drool over.

6 months ago, I asked myself, "What is a Jake's World" and how does she get 1,000 views on out-of-focus pics taken with with a disposable camera? I think she was gone for a while, and then came back with a vengeance. 6 months later and I've given up trying to figure out the Jakes_World phenomenon, and just sat back and enjoyed the ride. Speaking of enjoying the ride, Jakes seems to have lots of "friends with benefits" of both sexes. We've yet to meet in person, but sometimes I wake up and look outside and think I see her in the shadows, and in the morning when I check, there are empty beer cans and bottles of Mad Dog.

Jakes is awesome. Plain and simple. I feel happier for having known her on here. She may be a Gator, but dont hold that against her. I imagine she did a lot of drugs when choosing her school. I also like to imagine her wearing a sock monkey suit and screaming at children. Sometimes I imagine she is a viking, and she is hollering at her oarsmen, sweat trickling from her bosom....... Sorry. Got a little carried away. Yeah. Jakes is cool.

Jakes is a ray of hope in an otherwise dark place. This light shines bright and rids the world of evils and perils. The force is strong with this one, and the photos are a reflection of this strength.

My Flickr experience has been greatly heightened because Jakes is here. What a beautiful person you are,Jakes. Thanks for all the sunshine,Sunshine :-) xoxoxoxo

"She has that eye for the great shot, her photos show just how much she enjoys her friends.. Jakes is a one of a kind person filled with humor and passion and she is easy on the eyes as well. Put a check mark in the awesome column next to the young ladies name!

'Jakes World' For anyone who knows Jakes, these two words are synonymous with the words 'What If' What if... you were to take elements of the 2001 cult classic movie 'Donnie Darko' and combine them with 'Elmo's Word', with Elmo being played by Donnie Darko actor Jake Gyllenhaal?

'Jakes World' For anyone who knows Jakes, these two words are synonymous with the words 'What If' What if... you were to take elements of the 2001 cult classic movie 'Donnie Darko' and combine them with 'Elmo's Word', with Elmo being played by Donnie Darko actor Jake Gyllenhaal? This is the no-less-than-ambitious, thought provoking, moral and philosophical question raised by Jakes, through her compelling and sometimes controversial photostream 'Jakes World'. Unquestionably the most important work of this era!

I'm soooo glad that we finally met!! You are an amazing woman who is a ton of fun! I love all of your crazy cameras and you do beautiful work with them! I can't wait to see what you got in Philly!! Hopefully we'll be able to get together again soon! :) Kristen

There are more humanity and feelings in any shot of Jakes made with an Holga than in any of mine made with an overpriced camera. And she is hawt, like Fwot :)

"Better late, than a dead rabbit." That was the instruction manual for Carla's first camera/lunchbox. Jakey has shown me that it's harder than it looks when it comes to the world of LoMo photography. Any buffoon can snap a 100 shots with a P+S and get lucky, and maybe even end up with a decent image, but it takes someone like my pal here, to reverse the process. Please do yourself a favor and visit the land of this lovely lady and friend. One of these days, my dog is gonna sniff your dog's, butt.

Jakes_World is one hard ass bitch. Given the choice between fucking with a dozen angry drunken midgets or Jakesy, I'd totally take on the midgets. That is high fucking praise people. I have no proof or knowledge of this, but I'll bet she gives great head too.

Jakes may not know this. But (s)he's one of my main reasons for logging on to this place every day. Jakes is a funny soul and very few people notice this while looking at her photos. I bet she doesn't even notice herself. Actually I think that I might be the only one who noticest this. Jakes' photos are stuffed with little details that make me laugh inside. When there's very little sunshine in my life, I only have to sift through Jakes' photostream. Then I'm as good as new. But does that make her a good photographer? (Which apparently is a very important thing to be) Some might say no and some might say yes. Since I've allready forgotten what the question was, I join the "yes-side".

Jakes is one of those pups that you just can't ignore. 'Cause if you do, she'll send a camera your way. =) Also, she shoots film. Easy points in my book.

Jakes combines silly good fun, a biting sense of humor, and a joy for shooting. It all adds up to a person you'll want to know, and a photo stream you'll enjoy.

Jakes keeps flickr alive with her humorous and beautiful personality. I have many contacts but few I would call real friends. I cannot wait to finally meet Jakes this summer (it's already planned!) and give her huge, tight hugs and kisses, if she wants them. I adore you and am so glad we meet here. xo

Jakes_World has almost as many testimonials a Rebekka so it stands to reason that her photos must be fantastic.

Jakes is probably one of the nicest persons I've met of the flickrwebs, and, quite honestly, DM (and its uncensored spinoff) would NOT be the same without her. She is definitely great fun to have around! Did I mention she also masters the cameraphone?
