K+1 = Team 26 vs A mid summer nights pale ale

We had to get all algebraic on you...
OK so this is a busy weekend and 2nite is a crazy night.
If you haven't already head over to going.com/stolentransmission
Here's the seizure inducing flyer that ironically syncs up with..
The Horrors "Sheena was a parasite"
Come out and help Karen Celebrate a fun little birthday...
Karen turned me on to Art Brut and a bunch of other really good bands.
I think we started Meik! just days after seeing the Brut at Sound Fix.
So pack up your cash, card and ID head out to A&K around 11ish 2nite.
Fun Rules to follow
Dance!!!!
Don't request bad music
No collars...I hear a rumor if you come in with a collar you might lose it
(That rumor could also but a total lie we just made up)
Don't tell Karen you'll make her famous...Unless you really mean it.
No Lemurs(I've been working on documentaries all day don't ask)
And keep dancing and singing along.
Bonus Round
English accents are always a +
Buying a drink might get a smile...



Prior to this gala the Meik! Team is on a fact finding mission..
Where? Glad you asked. To the Brooklyn Brewery!!!!
A night of pale, summer and other seasonal ales for all.
So we're going to try to make it Angels and Kings.
We're just not sure what shape we'll be in.
Tally ho!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Last Meik!'s Party: Epstein's DJ, Max Fish, Van Wastell and a Guaco Loco..

So last night was on and on and on and on....
We sorta kinda DJ'd at Epstein's Bar
We were sampling beverage, Sol of course...
Then Valerie(Tender of Bar) asked us if we wanted to show responsibility.
Uh...oh...She threw us a couple singles
and asked if we could get the music going.
We were worried it was going to be something dangerous..
I asked if we'd be thrown out if she didn't like the songs...
She laughed, so I got a little nervous...

Meik! Playlist @ Epstein's Bar
Elvis Costello-"45"
Me First and the Gimme Gimmes"Wild World"
The White Stripes-"I just don't know what to do with myself"
The Stooges-"I wanna be your dog"
David Bowie Featuring Queen-"Under Pressure"
Billy Idol-"Rebel Yell"
Wilco"Heavy Metal Drummer"
James Brown-"Get UP"

I kept thinking of what skate videos each song was from.
I apparently picked a set that focused on skate music.
Some pretty fun stuff to sit, dance or take shelter with.
This was all going down during the crazy rainstorm last night.
We got the sign of approval from Valerie and folks were signing too.


Meik! meets Van Wastell @ Max Fish

Here's our short interview..

Meik!:(Whistling noise)
Van Wastell: Turning around
Meik!: Van Wastell!? (in a very awesomely shocked voice)
Van: Hey man how you doin..
Meik!: Hey it's great to meet you.
Van: Thanks
Meik!: Your last Video was pretty sick...
Van: Oh yeah, Gnar Gnar. You saw it.
Meik!: What are you doing out here in the city?
Van: We're working on the follow up...
Meik!: What!
Van: Yeah! Baby Gnar Gnar...
Meik!: No way...What are you going to film this with Casio Camcorders.
Van: No were using pretty simple cameras you could get at Best Buy..
Meik!: I can't wait to see this...Thanks Man..Great seeing you..


There may have been some other adventures...
Maybe!!!

Meik! Presents Turn Off CNN Night!

We wanted to start something to help the country.
Here we go..
The First Annual
National Turn Off
Cable News Night.


Starting tonight with Larry King interviewing Paris Hilton.
If you only saw Paul McCartney's response last night when they teased the interview.
Luckily they were using a far away jib shot...
He just shrugged and showed a look of disgrace....
I feel the 55-95 Wolf Blitzer demo might miss this message...
And obviously for the Cooper Andersonians
We mean no harm to your silver topped man.
We're down with Coop, saw him on 60 minutes..(network's calling)
If you really wanna see it just Tivo the interview and then watch it later.
Predictions you may here::
"It's like so hard in Prison, you don't have any control or freedom"
"I really found God and want save the world and poverty"
So many Grandparents tomorrow are going to say they feel sorry for that girl.
The Devil doesn't where prada, the devil works in PR and Publicity...

We here at Meik! have a saying...
If it's really important news they would interupt Sportscenter...

We're going to try to plan some events tonight...
Maybe something in LES or ABC.....
Something fun a show, maybe some beverage, art, or dance...
Look for updates later today.


Miguel Liab Meik
Chairman and Ceo of Meik!

Our Generation's Gerber Baby turns 17....

This is probably one of the most famous kids in the 18-34 demo..
The kid that was on the cover of Nirvana's Nevermind is now 17.
He just was in a recent interview and this popped up
and I found this posted on digg.com
His name is Spencer Eldon.
I wonder if he realizes how much of a part of american culture he is.
Spencer on Digg
or originally posted on paxtonland

Kinda crazy right!!
At least he's a skate rat..
Not like some some i dunno physicist.

Oh and last night was a fun fun fun time at the Habana Outpost..
You shoulda come, we told you.
Thanks for the raffle tix Runaround Sue.
We'll be back next month.
Maybe we'll make it an official Team Meik! adventure.

Off we go!!!
Meik!!!!

Back to the Shack....And off to the Outpost...

The folks at Sugar Shack Burlesque gave us a heads up...

OK, OK, OK!!! They just sent out a bulletin...
It's still counts...It's gonna be fun tonight...
Anyways there's a big little event at the Habana Outpost..
We're packing up the van/C-Train and heading down to the BK..
Come on out and say hello.....
It's been a rough morning since we found out we were allergic to soy milk...
Yeah that was a rough start to the day....
You realize how fun breathing is when your throat swells shut..
We're all better now..And going to celebrate. So join in.
You could even tell Strapp whether he should shave his beard on not..
Find out if it's rough or smooth...
Be weary of the venemous Frag waiting to attack...
I've watching a lot of nature stuff..
Anyways here's the info below...See ya there..

Meik! goes to the Habana Outpost!!!

Friday, June 22, 2007

Down in the Park with friends of Mine...

That was a sweet soundtrack...
The x-files sountrack.
That may have been the First Foo Fighters song
without Grohl playing everything.
I'm not 100% sure on that though....
I think it was songs inspired or relating to the show...
Don't confuse it with the X-Files movie soundtrack though..
That was definitely in a crate of 150 awesome cd's i lost 2 years ago.
Arghhhhh.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyway we're off to see Dave Attel host a fun evening of Comedy.
Down at the Central Park summerstage..
Oh wait isn't that actually up and over from where we are right now..
Uh oh!!! Too much info...
The secrecy of the Meik! offices could be exposed..

Anyways Rascal up for the weekend!

See you maybe at B-Side or Angels & Kings!

Tomorrow It's Go Skateboarding Day!!

Yeah not go swimming day...
That was yesterday...
We still smell the chlorine in our bodies from yesterday.
But it was a good old fun time at the QT pool..
You may see us brandishing some Team Sizzou Campari in the pool..
I'm not sure where the photos will be but I'm guessing gawker maybe..
We still keep getting asked if we're David Arquette..
We're not friends nor related
But we also asked some guy if he was the Gogol Bordello dude..
I still think he was a dead ringer. But it evens out.

Off to the facts... Tomorrow is GSD 2007...
Grab a long board or a short board...
Big wheels or small...
Just go out and either push, carve, or drop in...

If you're in the city the kids from 5boro have some
events planned.
The entire Team Meik! will be on board tomorrow..

The D-I-M-I-T-R-Y

Sarah starts to take over....

NZ Nick..(Friend, Financial Advisor, and Kiwi)

rob hitt and karen in the booth

These ladies were very polite so we photo bartered..

This photo is just really fun and happy..

So I ran into these fellas from my past...
I can't say from where but it rhymes with
Nate Light with Bonan O'Crien...

Hahaha...no one will ever get it.

Then some how as stated Sarah and Karen posed...
Holy crap these came out awesome...

The Wonder Tarts away!!!!!!!!

Smiling like they mean it...

Choose sitting on a bench...Choose a fun little time..

Shooting film is fun......

Introducing Dan and Mike's Monkey Farm Opening 2012


artwork by DK Dynamics
Dan and Mike's Monkey Farm...
Do you like monkeys?
Do want a monkey?
Do you have $69.99?

(Our Commercial Theme Song)
Come on down to Dan and Mike's Monkey Farm...
You can buy em...
We can sell em...(Both may acutally be illegal)
But just don't cook em...
Oh Yeah they might fling poo..
Our name again it's Dan and Mike's Monkey Farm...
Now with two locations in Namibia and White Plains..
(This offer may be totally fake, not real, and joke)
Project X starring Matthew Broderick was awesome...
Meik! Sciences Lead Reginal Fortnight III

Who are you taking photos for?

One, Two, Three gooooooooo

If you go to Angels & Kings you will lose clothes...
Now I say this and you probably go wait a moment...
I'm not really sure what my opinion is about this situation.
Don't worry. But then again, that could be a good slogan...
Last time I was there I lost my green track jacket(my fault)
This time some lady took my red tie off from around my neck.
Which I may add was securely fashioned....
It's a move prominently featured on Lastnightsparty.com or Cobrasnake.com
We do things at the Meik! offices a little differently...
We make decisions base upon folklore, magic, and JENGA!!!

So Friday night was part 2 of NZ Nick vs Meik!
With stops in including CB, Houstons, B-side, and Angels & Kings.
Stopping by the B-Side for some delicious refreshment.
A moment to reflect on life and pursuits.
Did I hear rumors of repeats of heroism guitar based in video gameology...

So were went to A&K to see(hear) the Tarts of Pleasure dj.
As always, I have a great time whenever either of them are spinning...
I think Nick had a swell time as well.
Dimitry was S.O.A(Spinning on Arrival)..
He was all over the Map from Fresh Prince of Bel Air to Justice...
D.A.N.C.E is going to be the dance hit of the summer....
I know you kids in France have been way ahead of the game...
Be on the look out for Road Rules, Laguna Beach, and Real World episodes have bar scenes with this song laced all over it...
If they bring back any of those dance shows this would definitely be the theme.

Sarah and Karen were getting a lot of action out of the crowd.
Someone broke out their choreographed Killers dance.
I am not saying who it was but i didn't take any photos of him/me...
So nick and I were dressed to the nine like the queens grandchildren...
He has better chance at getting the ladies
A. Sweet Kiwi Accent
B. Not married
C. Saturday Night Fever Ladies...That's just what I hear.. I don't know what it means.

Well I decided to break out the Nikon 35mm and shoot some film.
I realized this and this is not bull.
If you want to meet people and you don't have a pickup line get an slr camera with a big flash...
Nick acting as my photo assistant fending off ladies trying to figure out who I was shooting for..
In typical meik! fashion..."Ummm, myself, it's ummm art..."
Like this...

It was pretty funny.

Rob Hitt fact checked my audio biography to Nick of how I met him at Rutgers years ago for a Less Than Jake & method/redman show right as midtown was finishing up with school and touring massively...Fun fact Frag found me @ TCNJ wearing a Humble Beginnings T-Shirt.
The band Gabe was in before joining Midtown. Thanks Rob..

So there's this bench outside of A&K.
The last time Nick and I were vanting around we ran in to Albert Hammond Jr.
It was funny because he was shooting film and being very polite.
So my project I'm starting is called After the Party...
It's going to be a collection of photos when people step out of a place after a fun night.
That moment the fresh air hits your face and you make fun, crazy or food based decisions.
I'm not a party photographer period...
There's lots of really good people that do that and have the experience..
I want to make Nick a camera outta cardboard
and see what kinda responses he would get.
We even met one of "Are I"'s....
We remember E, we still aspire to turn Pro as a blogger..
But we'll probably just be Am for life....
Tarts on a bench will be getting developed tomorrow and maybe posted as well...
Or was it a planter... I don't remember..
Thanks for being gracious talent...
I just takes photos for fun....

With that said a crazy fun night was an end to an insane week.

Oh yeah...Don't forget this is a busy week as well...
The birthday of Frag as she joins team 26...
Monday will be at the movies in the park.. come along..

Next on Deck for black and white photos
The Assault
Zambri
The Timid Roosevelts

A and this has been a moment with Meik!

Have you seen these ladies(and gents)?

We partied a little tonight at B and Xunta...
Last night it was a fun old time with Demander we'll give you a proper write up.
My favorite line from Wednesday would be when I said...
"The drummer from demander told me to ask you for black tape"
It worked out, I was expecting to hear,"What?"
But for now here's a couple photos..
A lot of familiar faces showed and their beverage, singing, and photos.....

Pre Show Karen


Side angled Jared

The Rapture of Sivan on drums(Groooowll!!!)

B is for the Bass that says Stalker with an S

G is for a cookie..crap no it isn't... It's guitar

"Meik we were at the amazing Demander Show at Mercury Lounge"
We were able to grab not only Sivan, Karen, and (meik! favorito) Tara McPherson..

NZ Nick you're on Deck...
We'll see you at the movies...
No we won't....

Boston is for lovers...oh wait no it isn't...

So a little while back...I would say months ago...
The team packed up some bags, a vocoder, cameras, and youthlitude..
Thus became the sojourn up to Boston aka we love you Sam Adams..
We had a blast, saw some sights and caused trouble..
Well if you remember one our cameras dropped into a Sam Adams at Cheers..
Splaaaaaaaaaaaaaaash!!!!! Dunzo if you will...
Well the next day we picked up a fisheye 35mm from Urban O...
And finally months later finally we developed some of the evidence...
Enjoy as Meik! presents boston in Fisheye 35mm..

Residency Applies!!!

Well last night we had a blast at not only one but 5 art galleries.
It was a gallery crawl of some sorts at 25th between 10th & 11th.
We only got yelled at once for taking a photo of artifacts.
But that place had the best wine.
The security guard was really cool dude actually.
We thanked him for allowing us to sip and wander.
The best of the shows had (clean & new) buckets of PBS with dyed canvases.
Various versions of similarly themed face with aviator glasses.
I left the flyer at home but we'll right about the artist...
It was a lady and I believe her name began with an E..
If we sell the company Van we'll maybe buy one...

Tonight the residency begins of Maggie Doucet at Pianos
She goes on around 10ish...
We'll be shooting some photos...We got a new lens...HeHeHe...

The mysterman below shall be there as well we believe
But I hear he's going to be playing some keys instead of guitar..
By the way I wonder if he's the person standing right behind me now...
Keep it kool, kalm and clean....heyyyyyyyyyy!!!!
We like maggie and we'd like you to be there as well.Demander-Jared guitar

As earlier noted by U-less Karen, she's djing at Angels and Kings tonight...
We might stop by hopefully to hear some (Art)Brut....
I hear it's high collar season this time of the year during a summer's eve....
Think about....Keep thinking...OK now forget it every happened...

You should come it'll be like and episode of lost...(T-Shirts vs Collars)
I'll be playing the part of Jack..Wait but that means I have to...
Oh whatever....

We are Meik...They are the Pipettes....MY fave is?

Hello Pipettes....

So after debating, guessing and taking a train I decided.
I made it down to see the Pipettes at Highline Ballroom.
It wasn't sold out when I arrived but it was pretty packed.
I have a crush on the brunette but I feel it probably wouldn't work.
As I'm a Manchester United supporter and they are from bolton...
They probably have boyfriends and I'm murrayed....
But she's got an english accent with some foul cockney language.
Oh to be dreaming of dreams.
There may be numerous other reasons...
I think we made eye contact twice...Fact...Haha..
They put on a really sweet live show.

Smoosh one of the openers a couple young girls.
Think Hanson meets White Stripes and the sounds.
They played a little nervously on the first song but warmed up on the second.
But won the whole crowd a cover of Bloc Party's

Smoosh nailed Bloc Party

Highline overall was an interesting venue.
It's weird first off cause it's in meatpacking land.
The inside looks like Benjamin's lair from Wayne's World 2.
It's basically the TLA if it was renovated for Rich People....
There some sound issues they need to work out....
But other than that it was a darn good show.
The Pipettes finished the night with "We are the Pipettes"

The Horrors did play Pianos this morning as predicted..
Sarah posted the info probably when I was eating appetizers...

Tuesday, June 05, 2007

We not making rumors...Just Guessing..

The Horrors vs The Pipettes...
We're debating which show to try to see tonight.
It all depends if any are sold out like the Kings of Leon.
"The Bucket" reminds of our times in Vegas, good times.....
Pipettes are at Highline and The Horrors are at Fillmore East(irving)
What you should do is check out Pianos apparently
The Schoolyard Heroes who are opening for The Horrors at Fillmore are also playing Pianos at midnight.
There also happens to be a special guest scheduled for 1am....
Hmmmm who could that be... (the Horrors?)
I dunno for some reason I'm thinking about Many(poly)dor(s).
STSTSTSTSTSTSTSTSTSTSTSTSTSTSTSTSTSTST!!!!!!!!
We'll do some more research and keep you updated....

With that said we thought of a split 7" idea.
The Horrors cover the Pipettes "We are the Pipettes"
And The Pipettes cover the Horrors "Jack the Ripper"
Just a thought...Let's make it happen..

So with that Meik! may be at either Highline, Pianos or Fillmore tonight...
Who knows...

We went to Shindig a couple weeks...
It was rad. You missed out on tunes, bevy, and naked dude.
And we were really impressed by the Jaguar Club...
Here's one of the last few songs from their set.
Maybe we'll get a real video camera soon...
Anyways enjoy the grainy textures in grainy Meik! O'vision...
