GeneralOn the Outside: veganism. activism. dumb, gross shit. the straight edge. acting like a twelve year old. camping. road trips. finding soy d mint chocolate chip or peanut butter palooka. temporary tattoos. pretending like i know the lyrics to 80's glam metal. cheap nights at the santa cruz boardwalk. laying in bed entirely too long. downloading shit i will never listen to or watch. annoying others around me. annoying myself. saying inappropriate stuff around strangers. genital punching. zombies.
In Prison: Reading and writing letters, exercise, running along the dirt path called a 'track', playing soccer, yoga, reading, watching bad movies and worse TV, telling people to stop messing with the pigeons and the fire ants, finding vegan food on the commissary, making 29 cents an hour, explaining why I get so much mail, explaining why I can't hook you up "with a penpal, preferably a woman."
MusicOn the Outside: the postal service, stacey kent, rilo kiley, diana krall, beulah, ice cube, ida, terror, day of lions, aesop rock, sage francis, aretha franklin, trial, iron and wine, the shins, johnny cash, junior senior, kayne west, modest mouse, old school hip hop - pre '92, bad metal, hardcore that means something, anything that makes me say "god, this is fucking awful - i have to download this..."
In Prison: I'm stuck with all the AM/FM radio the Mojave Desert provides. However, occasionally I hear something that puts a smile on my face or think "Damn, I do like shitty music..." Such as: Angels and Airwaves, Snow Patrol, anything acoustic by Bruce Springsteen or Neil Young, Ingrid Michaelson, Hatebreed, Dead Kennedys, Sepultura, Pitbull, System of a Down, Sick Puppies, Micky Avalon, Taylor Swift, Sugarland, Bob Marley, Flobots, The new Crue!, Blink 182, Prairie Home Companion.
Moviesannie hall, day of the dead, evil dead II, raising arizona, cinema paradiso, akira, the abyss, zoolander, all the harry potter films, anything by the coen brothers, anything where the dead walk the earth, eating the flesh of the living. and anything that would make me want to curl up on the couch and watch it instead of going outside.
TelevisionOn the Outside: Anything I can download. the OC, of course. Freaks and Geeks, Six Feet Under, the Sopranos, Get a Life, the Simpsons, the Office, Da Ali G Show, Arthur (the cartoon, not the drunk dudley moore).
In Prison: Sopranos re-runs, Breaking Bad, Ultimate Fighter (really just to watch the vegan beat the crap out of everyone else), Family Guy, Rob and Big, 30 Rock, Rock of Love...pretty much any VH1 celebreality is genius.
BooksOn the Outside: evasion, memories of freedom, life of pi, we die alone, band of brothers, hotel new hampshire
In Prison: (good books are good books no matter where you are!) The Cider House Rules, High Fidelity, The Secret History, Atonement, Shopgirl, The Dirt, World War Z, Ever After, Candy Girl, Fight Club, Water for Elephants, Evolution of a Cro-Magnon, Them.
HeroesAll my heroes wear masks, besides my mom. she doesn't wear a mask. but no one really impresses me anymore.

What You Can Send Jake/Prison Mail Regulations
The prison is very strict as to what is allowed to be sent. Generally, only letters, postcards, cards, and photos (no polaroids) are allowed to be sent in. You can also photocopy or print stuff off of the internet/your computer. Books and magazines may be sent, but can only be sent from the publisher. Stamps, news clippings, stickers, food, treats, care packages, etc. are not allowed. If you send prohibited items, the prison will reject your entire package.
On September 12th, 2006, Jake was sentenced to 4 years in prison in the landmark SHAC 7 case. He started his prison sentence on November 16th, 2006. Fore more information, check www.SupportJake.org.
Jake cannot check this account, but messages will be forwarded to him (or you can write him in prison!). For more about my case, see www.SHAC7.com.
Please consider donating to the SHAC 7 Support Fund. It will help pay for the legal appeal on our case and it will also help us buy the vegan necessities (and stamps, envelopes and paper to write people back!) when we're in prison.
