Tonight on Jake's Showcase https://youtube.com/JakesShowcase I have just released "My View on Social Media and Mobile Technology" https://youtu.be/EhF6ectonrc currently at 33 Views 2 Likes 0 Dislikes. It was taken in a single shot with all natural lighting.
Well two sort of just talking videos in a row, in really the exact same space and background. Here I was not looking my best as this was done very raw from me waking up....not even sure if I had turned on my computer at this point. But that was sort of the point....I wanted it raw here really raw.
This video was actually taken a couple days before the last and here I was much more enjoying looking at the sunny skies of the early morning....a few birds chirping was music to my ears.
Yep not a fan of social media and mobile technology. A Luddite...that's me.
You know in many ways especially with this venue, to then go and say...I'm not a fan it's so counter cultural so risky. But that's why you love me. I'm not afraid of telling the truth on Jake's Showcase, my truth anyway, going against the grain, being different even if that difference is right down to the core of how most watch me.
I have fans every other day now who want pictures in the streets with me. Just a selfie...with me. Who are these people, how do they know about me. Well they found me on social media half likely watching from some form of mobile technology. Yet here I explain why and how I myself really try to minimize use. In fact I count the good hours of hours I'm away from a phone and computer. Turn em off, unplug em. Those hours I'm experiencing the real world, the world I love.
Think Beatnicks, predating hippies, would love it. Greenwich, Beatniks, raw artists, Gothic, turn off them electronics and loving beauties...what a combo I am.
I love to entertain, it's true, I love the mystery, the mystique, it's true as well.
We, us, our type, we have to be different, we have to be multi colored, multi layered, why? To keep it interesting of course and more importantly to let our light shine.
A multi million dollar special effects studio can create fascinating stuff, create shows withing shows, keep the mind active and interested with war, fight scenes, dragons and beasts, fairies and princesses, unicorns that fly even.....they are wonderful entertainment. But little ol me, well I've just got me and this old beat up camera and a tiny space....so I have to use what I have....but oh my I have quite the mind.
So I keep it real, I keep it real for you the fan and I keep it real for me...and yes this is what I actually think.
Have a Wonderful Day or Night Fans,
