    "i can no more imagine flickr without a nameless yeast than i can beer without yeast. a yeast-less flickr would be a bland, unfermented, nondescript thing, devoid of flavor and pleasure.
    yes, a nameless yeast is the saccharomyces uvarum of this site.
    i can think of no higher praise to offer.
    because I am drunk on beer."

    "I dunno about Pat...he is either brilliantly mad, or just mad, and brilliant!

    Either way, the stories he tells with his camera is worth the price of admission...(in this case it is free!)

    Keep on, keeping on Nameless Yeast!"

    "Somehow, he turns the worst of America into the best of America. Through some kind of bizarre alchemy, he transforms the tacky and mundane into something that's uniquely beautiful.

    And I won't rest until I've guessed at least one of his NTF submissions!"

    "a nameless yeast is a cinematic genius because he/she/it recognized the overwhelming TALENT and FORCE of Joey Patina! It's ABOUT TIME! God Love you nameless yeast, you are truly -- a genius of EPIC proportions. Joey Patina is a Talent, America's Great Undiscovered Heart-throbbing Talent and a VSP! (aka Very Special Person...)"

    "a true original, nameless has an unexpected and quirky response to anything you can throw at him. not that you should throw things at him. you shouldn't. you might break his camera and that would be very sad."

    "A truly modern photographer,
    in all the best senses of both words.

    The Flickr Entity Known As a nameless yeast has the keen sense to balance the profound, tragic and totally retarded aspects of America without trivializing their beauty. Long may he wave."

    "a nameless yeast's photostream levels an assault on me so ruthless, so absurd, so cunning, that i'm left deliriously wandering through the rest of it looking for an apology."

    stale agreement says:

    "A perfect blend of humour and aesthetic sensibility is how I define The Yeast. Think sharp, think clever, think twice; even when he is bumping your photo from the pool, he is condensing your flava and offering solid criticism. Read on and RECOGNIZE!"

    "A Nameless Yeast is the wryest eye on flickr. Wit above, in and beneath the radar-no one marries image and idea quite the ironic and sometimes gloriously outrageous Yeasty way. Think, laugh and enjoy."
