Rabbit Girl, originally uploaded by thismeik.

Did you see Rabbit Girl?
We did and there's photographic proof.
There were a couple ladies with bear masks.
She scared us for a second since she reminded us of a Character from BioShock.
The video game that takes place in a failed Underground Utopian Society...
But after remembering we beat the game twice(good and bad) we were cool.
It was really fun to see everybody take it serious with outfits.
I think the bear got tranqued.
Bear down!
Some beeks
Some beeks
Our Identity may have been revealed on a couple sites.
We may need to shave off the stache and make it a Linclon
It kinda felt like Halloween in January.
Oh well I gotta go cut down some trees and edit some pictures.

Night Beard and Preparing for ARCH DL IV


Night Beard, originally uploaded by thismeik.

OK so tonight is another one of those LVHRD outings.
Some Archs vs some more arch.
Designing in a simiulated futuristic Alaskian setting.
Well tonight it's theme of woodland creatures and lumberjacks should be fun. If you can't tell what team I'm on take a look.
Since I'm shooting photos I guess that makes me a lumberjack/hunter
It's going down in the BK but that's all I can say.
If you want to sip some Dewar's and have your photo taken hit up the kids over at LVHRD.ORG and by hit up I mean buy tix.

Preparations for tonight include the following....
Shirts
Shirt
Hats
Headwear
Socks
Lumber socks
Pants
Pants
and Boots
Boots
We'll see you tonight....
Even if we don't know who you are yet....
Afterwards it's either the afterparty at Hugs.....
Or maybe a stop by Trainwreck.....
Let's see how many trees we cut down in the forest.....

Shred or Die with dissent tv

In the same vein as the Funny or Die comes it's board sport version.
They include bikes but it's just another way avoiding the words extreme or rollerblades.

Tony Hawk and Ed Helms


Shaun White turned 21...
I still remember him as a skate grom

Oh and after the end came the Beginning


I just beat Assassin's Creed by the way.
I need to talk to someone about it.
Oh and the many sequels on the way.
Got some issues....

Put on your (the) Thermals

I love the thermals.
I still think Pillar of Salt is one of my favorite videos.
We the kids put out a new one with some green screening and dollied cameras.
I love a person singing while running towards a moving vehicle.
Check out "Returning to the fold"


PS it's almost lumberjack time...

"Jane Eyre Dance Party" by Meik!


Jane Eyre Sensation, originally uploaded by thismeik.

This song was inspired by a night to Deitch(Biana Cassidy show)
Yours meikly! was shooting photos.
And spotting this Romanticism-era novelesque dancer
She's probably a model.
So we just made up this song.........

"Jane Eyre Dance party"
Tonight Tonight
I think she'll set fire to the candle light
The wax is falling and I think she just might get burned....
I've never seen a girl like her since I was reading Wuthering Heights
But she don't care about the time of year, her friends Emily and Charlotte disappeared
That doesn't seem to make her unhappy, I just don't know what to say.

This isn't the safest place in this town that I know,
Not smile but I'm quite unsure to see a frown.
Is it the time or the place
But she seems to be picking up the pace

Surprise, Surprise
I'm taking photographs of your eyes
What seems to be your surprise, I'm confused but you're getting serious.
I don't even know your name in this little game
But once you touch the dance floor you get so serious.
Maybe it's the chivalry from romanticism getting delirious.

Words, Words
They can't describe the way you seem to be moving at this gallery.
Pictures in place is that I have that can remind you to me.
Pencil out some words and letters how good this get better
But that type fun doesn't fit in to my diction cause I'm looking like a simpleton
I haven't said a word to you but you keep on with you dance tonight!!!!!!

Reflection, Reflection...
The night is getting darker and the music is loud
I'm standing on my knees in the middle of a crowd.
And your next to some Rainbowwarriors.
Kids in the corners on skateboards, purple denim, and plastic net-cords.

She looks like she's about to go riding
But she's out on the dance floor
I think she forgot about the black plague.
She's more concerned about moving all night on this floor..
I still remember running in to you.
Did you even catch a glimpse of me..........
some left over photographic imagery

She looks like, She looks like, She looks like Jane Eyre
I bet she's probably heard that before in paris and barely cares.
To pick up some digits and create conversations.
I wonder what's the reason......
She's living the 19th century and it's all moving to fast for me
Those were riding boots, a fancy blouse, and a fiece brown hat

Accidental Residents by Meik!


Steampipe Explosion NYC, originally uploaded by thismeik.

This supposed to be a song about a girl and a guy at a VFW show
It ended up about staying in places by accident.
Not being able to go home for a bunch of reasons.....
Black out, steam pipe, many things

"Accidental Residents by Meik!"
Traffic shouldn't have been as bad today...
The weather hasn't been as perfect since last may
I never heard that the mayor got scared and hid, no way
Probably not going to make it up north the borders are closed all the way
Bored, on a line some initials take the pain away.

I keep on running, I keep on running
Running all over this city
Ain't it a pity I don't even live here
This is not my home.
But it's where I need to stay right now.
Positively can't slip away under the borders
Follow someone out of a tunnel

There's anger in the rage I feel like we're getting shoved in to a cage.
The sun is going and it sets in some confusion.
The power being gone is no longer an allusion.
What will all this take away from me today.
No cellular solutions to keep up for the day

A sudden loss of power is causing all these complications.
We're starting to lose all of the syndications
The radio is dead and the tv is crying.
No one seems to care about the print cause it's too slow
it's just killing publications with all this radiation
I'm pretty sure it'll come down when the internet will be dyinggggg.

Why when we leave town, does it never see to shutdown
Take down the posters and pick up the cans of fosters
This'll be forgotten a couple hours after its over....
A pair of different faces will be stepping off a smaller van
Blame somebody else and it'll be forgotten.
So what is the plan...........

Six minutes past midnight.
Not even a moment to stop at the light.
Fist fights for the busses and blockades at the port
The sky is ptich black with a flicker in the night
Everything could be alright if we don't miss this train.....
I hoped I could just sleep in the park
I wish I didn't have to get back by the morning.
No time to stand still
Residential Accidents are making me an Accidental Resident.....

The Return of Blinkin Lincoln Vol. 3


blinkin lincoln, originally uploaded by thismeik.

It's almost that time of year...
Our b-day and yours...
And some other dude named Lincoln.
This we grew the Lincoln beard and just need to shave off the stache.
Al we need now is a top hat and start blinking......
If you with me let us know.
This years Blinkin Lincoln Day should be memorable.......

The Answer was Lederhosen...

Pants were the secret clue but we probably forgot to tell you.
We ended up going to Lederhosen after seeing it on Three Sheets on New Year's Day.
It was a fun ole time. Loads of German Bevy.
Drink ares purchase via the metric system.
Darn those units of standard measurement.
I had a liter of HB and something called an apfelvine.
I wanted Radler but I went on
But before hand there was a stop at Wogie's.
Proper Philly Cheesesteaks in the West Village.
After those 2 jaunts we caught up with a tank topped Sassy.
sassy and the knee
it was a bit hyphy
hyphy
There was some bouncing around. I think we ended up at Cherry Tavern.
After knocking over some drinks and watching some pool hustling we scanted.
Realizing we messed up the bus times we made a quick stop at Hanger Bar.
Saw the Tarts doing their thing.
Frag were starting to get worn and planned to find some time to rest.
We jetted in a cab after some quick skipping and leap frog contests.
The Knee and Meik! were reunited it's been a while
Rumors of a possible internet cook show.
Cooking with Meik! and the Knee.?????????
You never know.

Saturday Update
We just saw Juno
The flick was amazing.
We starting cheering at the screen when we saw all the Tara McPherson posters.
Pretty fun some michael cera, jason bateman, tara and the moldy peaches.
It was agood night.......
This week is going to be busy and you might catch us.
Tuesday for some LVHRD action ARCH DL IV....
Thursday: Start fashion week.
Friday: We might be shooting photos at Hanger Bar for Sarah's B-day.
(Barring that all my timing and calculations work out).
We'll see if we can make it work.......

A song about being away by meik!.....

When I wake up it feels like you were never there.
Well then the sun's on it lunch break.
A slight tear in my spine has me slightly aching.
Look towards the door and I'm not really sure what's breaking.
This winter's colder, not sure if it'll take dip or two
Bolder at times why don't we walk near something brand new
When the whispers I heard on the TV screen are not nearly true.
This light wind is causing the trees to make it sound like your home

Just going out for a drive to clear some mind and was time
Staring out the window at rest stop cafe is not a crime
Pausing for a moment to sit still and wake up from this day day dream.
Some more coffee and gallons of gasoline are part of the theme
Let's step out behind the sunset
Say something things that nighttime may let
If I'm walking in some kind of circles sit still
Probably just run down looking stars from windowsills

(Chorus)
Your midday is my midnight
The is nighttime tastes of sunlight
Lovely Underground contradictions...
Sometimes being home is being away.
Sometimes being home is being away.
Sometimes there not other words to say....

In Manhattan there's a subway station.
Where often at times I'll show some hesitation.
If I'm just visiting there's no time to play
But even at 1am at the worst, everything is okay...
If you fly down to some where far, maybe to florida.
I'll get in my car and be there in a couple of days
But when the sunrises I'll probably be ending my day
Maybe tomorrow I'll get to see you before it's time to dream away.....

PS Day 30 of the beard.....
Beard day 30
Come to b-side and deitch on Thursday.....

Follow the clues....


bk brew, originally uploaded by thismeik.

First off this has nothing to do with Cloverfield....
So we're taking the team out for a pre-fashion week party on Friday.
The coin is a clue. Here are your hints of the spots.
West Village or BK
One can be worn and the other is Open only on Fridays....
More to come.........Start collecting your pizza menu's

You got me all Locoroco

I've been playing this game Locoroco nonstop the last few days on my PSP.
You basically control the earth or surface to move this evolving creature.
It features a lot or random children's voices singing kinda J-pop.
I think that's the term for the sub-genre.
It's somewhere on the lines of a Katamari Damaci....

Anyways this is a video of one of the girls singing from the game.

this is the game

And this is the game coming out soon called Patapon.

Very excited....
It's looks to be more of a rhythm base game.
(Insert joke here)
I think it's from some of the same folks that made locoroco....
The design has very similar aesthetics and can relies on its unique soundtrack.

I should have known this from the start...

So I'm in a very self evaluation point this time of year.
Also the grammar is gonna be shoty so we might need to re-edit in the morning.

Trying to figure out if we're gonna go pro-photogs or blog loggers.
Well I got a call earlier today about an available position.
Hoping it was as a contributor for music, skating, or even video games.
Turns out it was for a company that wanted to hire people to assist the elderly with Medicare. First off I had no idea if this was legit or not.
Training people and I kept thinking of the Office where Michael did phone sales.
I dunno. I told the folks thanks but it's not the direction we're looking for.
I don't know where that will help me with file coding, editing, producing, or etc...
But the job hunt is kinda the reason I've been laying from the city.
Reason why I been shooting only digital and no polaroid or film.
It gets really weird and limiting when you can't express yourself in different mediums. a sort of cabin fever if you will.
I miss being at concerts taking photos of new bands I'm seeing for the first time.
Whether it's from the side of the stage or right on the floor of some dive.
I at times wish I was meeting folks again and going for a 1:00 am walk.
some of the most random art shows, book readings, and events that were barely events.
Other then some friends outings and what not I've been out but missed tons of shows.
Even some of my friends(sorry demander) due to tix, complications, or other....
I think there's been a couple days that i've maybe taken barely 30 steps in my apt.
I actually started doing yoga stretches today because my back was locking up on me.
Is that the beginning stages of muscle atrophy.
Oh well I think the new matt costa record came out tuesday.
I'll have to pick that up and either rejoice or cry my eyes out.
Those skateboarders/songwriters can compose some crazy stuff.

The last time I disappeared for two months was when I had my surgery.
Everything looks pretty good and is healed up.
I just seem to have a pretty wicked scar.
I actually stepped out on my skateboard Monday to pick up a pizza.
It felt so good and if you skate you know the feeling of getting back on.
This is really for me since when worked a tuesday-friday schedule.
On my Mondays I would go to Princeton or take the train to NYC.
These were some amazing trips that I would just hang out on the Princeton campus all day.
Or I'd go spend hours searching through music at the Princeton Record exchange.
Once I got the city itch I would just roam all over.
A couple times I'd venture In walk down to LES from PENN,walk to Harlem and back to west village. Those adventures lead to seeing kidrobot for the first time.
Finding all of these amazing new clubs and well watching plenty of soccer.
I think I'd shed a couple lbs if I took those adventures again.

I'm realizing that I'm either going to switch my fields of work or go for new training whether it involves computer language, editing, or design.
Is it the economy? Is it opportunity? Is it motivation? Is it timing?
I really don't know. I just realize that I love working really hard on stuff I care about.
I think I'm too much of a romantic dreaming for the life of the road of synergy between entertainment and work. Maybe that's why I detach myself from mainstream media at times. Maybe that's why I try to put a soundtrack together for every aspect of my life. I'm adhering to strict djing guidelines even while writing this.
So now I'm just going to put on Stars by Hum..........

In summation here are some photos of my randomness of the past year 365 days from now...
This makes me happy and I can remember these days and almost feel the temperature.
These days and nights may have been fun, scary or exciting but they all mean something....
