Everyone to the bar!!!!

So jealous of Dagger tonight.....
This got me searching for some fun LTJ stufff.
Since I screwed up and forget to see them last week.
I love these guys so much.
I think I've seen them in every Jersey Dive.
I interviewed Roger way back at the warped quickly in the deadly summer heat.
Loved everyone of Chris' disguises...
I missed when the cut back on all the guys in costumes but the pyro was great.
All those Electric Factory shows were so great.
Their merch guy may have jumped off the balcony, not sure.
So unless I make some trips it maybe a while to I see them live again, although.........

For the rest of My Life

One of my favorite songs of theirs(Gainsville Rock City)

Here's a crazy vid of the LTJ guys with Talib "Lyrics stick to your ribs" Kwali

And a very indepth interview with Vinnie...

Did you notice the Tara McPherson piece in the back

The Change Falcon


The Change Falcon, originally uploaded by thismeik.

This is the Change Falcon.
He sits to my left as I type and I feed him quarters.
Sometimes even 10 pence coins leftover from the UK.

Today we sayHappy Birthday to Karen Ruttner (blogger/model/dj/superhero)
She probably does like 10,000 other things that would make us crawl in to a hole and feel very lazy about what we do.
Maybe lawrence will croon her with some tunes
Lawrence x Karen + 1 / OK Erin = book party

Um no clue what lies ahead for today.
So far I need to go buy two tubes for my bike since I popped both.
I guess that's what happens if you don't ride it for 5 years.
Till then I'll be watching me some Wimbledon

Blinking Lights by Meik!


Blinking Lights by Meik!, originally uploaded by thismeik.

I want to write a book that partially relays my real life experiences.
I'm no one famous and I haven't found out yet how to get free donuts.
Though I do have some fun thoughts that are outside the box.
But I want to alsome be at least %51 made up and exaggerated.
I want it to have to be sold on an end cap between the fiction and non-fiction sections.
Kinda like some weird sort of Limbo.
The ship story was a quick exercise I did yesterday.
I just sat around and threw up some chapter ideas.
1. The Bus Crash....
2. The Broken Hand...
3. Lost in the City...
4. Running from the Rats
5. Locked in an Art Gallery
6. The Angry Bands Revenge
7. Kidnapped by a model
8. Trapped in Brooklyn
9. Port Authority Zombie
10. Meeting yourself
11. Blogtographer
12. The camera thief
13. Shattered nap time
14. Skateboard bowls
15. Falling down stairs
16. Other peoples Flashes
17. Fake Aliases
18. Locals Only
19. Awake for 72 hours
20. Thursday Night Black eye
21. Stop taking photos
22. Practice Spaces
23. A meeting with Heroes
24. A-Side
25. Steam Pipes
26. Pretending Your in England
27. AM DJ
28. 100 blocks south
29. Meeting Muses
30. Coming Home

I still need to define but I think this is my direction or starting point.
Maybe I'll start putting up rough drafts or ideas each day.
If I could have 30 done with in the month I might have a plan with a goal.
At least this will be fun....

Meik! on the Salty Dog 70 Days at Sea(This is just a test)


Meik! on the Salty Dog, originally uploaded by thismeik.

Rumors have washed that I will be giving up photography.
Possibly started by myself after spending 36 straight hours at a Magic the Gathering tournament followed up by filming Solstice instead of attending my CO-Ed Quidditch practice.
I think the confusion may have arisen by the recent departure of my twin Miles Nakamura Meik! and my disappearance from Mainland for the past several days.
Miles' middle name is Nakamura because of a family friend who assisted our great grandfather's uncle's elbow specialist back in the day. Although he's always been a big Glasgow Celtic fan and I thought he's changed his middle name about 25 times. Secret unclassified sutff.
Possible miss-communications between myself and Leonard Felipe de Meik! my twitter and flickr intern.
He's given college credit and all the smokes he wants for covering my innerthroughts, deepest lies, and ambitions...
He may also be another one of my aliases but that wouldn't happen.
Would it?

Reasons for my departure have been speculated as possibly for a life at sea on the Salty Dog. I have been in the midst of career path changes over the last 6 months. Due to an increase in costs of blue dye #34 I've had to cut back on plans for a line of Meik! hats, bags, and t-shirts... Maybe in the future..
I was trying to navigate the seas in search of fishing and wildlife. Venturing after fortune possibly finding some treasure through maps I acquired from various bar locals, gift shops and online media forums.

Day 1 the seas were rough...
No crab was caught though there was plenty of baiting.
I would later be told the area I was navigating did not have crab.

Day 2 Bella was not apparently made out for life at sea...
Bella on the boat
The puggy pup was very affraid of the water and possibly the motion.
She was returned back to land via a speed raft.
Where upon she was later motor coached back to her northern residence
Cheer up......

Day 3 Hunger sets in and there are still no catches...
I may have to use the hovercraft or jetski to find a shanty post.
back up plan
Not sure where to go but I hear rumors of a Wawa Island.
I have been noticing some weird signs of sea life around the boat.
The waves are getting much bigger but the skies look fine.

Day 4: I think I have scurvy plus there are no more oranges.

Day 5: Yep it's scury and now I have seagulls attacking me.

Day 6: Oh the scurvy. It hurts, it really fricken hurts.
Darkness is setting and I'm not feeling safe.
Night
Most of the other ships have left port and shops have closed.
I heard rumors or Pirates.

Day 7: (Contact was lost with Meik! and the Salty Dog)
Last transmitted image as giant sea creature was nearing vessel.

Day 68: I have been release after the Salty Dog Crashed.
Something attacked the ship and I don't know what it was.
I was asleep and wounded for many days.
Once I landed on sure in vest I was captured as possible spy.
The last two weeks I have been staring at this post.
No answers as to what would be done to me or if I could ever escape.
I found my case with camera and laptop but I need to be more secret.
In an attempt check the escape routes while secretly repairing the ship
It took some coconuts and some bribery.
With some help I was able to un-dock the ship and head back home
Land is not that far away....
Arrival at land
Other than that I will not mention anything else about the last 61 days.
I fear we may not be safe yet.

Day 69: We are set to auto pilot and only hours away.

Day 70 I return back the States and am greeted by Bella
Go USA!!!!
I have regained contact with Miles and he is safe as well.
But he tells me the same exact thing happened to him as well.

Sweet lights and loud sounds

Business Meik! 2.0


Business Meik! 2.0, originally uploaded by thismeik.

End of the night at B-Side with a new disguise.
Somewhere between james bond and michael scott
Went to the Vice Party and my phone shut off.
I really enjoyed the Muslims who were loud and fun.
I shot some amazing photos during the Vivian Girls set.
Something tells I think these girls have something big instore coming soon. The crowd was loving them and all their BK friends were chucking bottles of water, Cans of Colt 45 and glasses of ice at the ladies. They just seemed to take it in stride.

When the Vivian Girls finished I hucked it to The Delancey.
Only to find out that I was too later for MIG.
Trekked over to Bowery Electric to hear Lesley Arfin DJ.
Didn't go in cause some of the crowds were interesting.
But I did see but was too nervous to be like hey how's things...
I galloped over to max fish and it was packed crazy....
Jason O'dell from VBS.tv and Baker's Braydon Szafranski was there
Finally skipped over to B-side to see Dr. Sara for a hand diagnosis.
Also my fake brother Joe was there and Andrew(Mr. Mustachio)
For what I thought would be quiet turned in to some intense debate on tipping, crazy roommates, and even dancing lessons.
The ladies that said hi to me were very hysterical.
Apparently my disguises and aliases don't work when I have my real name on facebook...
Alright I need to go put my bike together fan unplanned journey...
Tonight is Frag's B-Day and I need to make a flyer and we'll be at Lederhosen later tonight...

Sounds like there's a mole at Late Night...

So via the kids at gawker and the adults at the NY POST.
At least a PR agent or gossip girl hanging on set.
If you're an intern and leaking this better double check that contract...
Mike Myers and the Seltzer Silk gate
All the errands I remember doing were hilarious and fun.
I was also probably 30 pounds lighter back then as well...
Intern Meik at Conan back in '02
Oh well, still waiting to see what happends when Conan packs up and leaves town.
I might need to get on the Jimmy Fallon staff.
But if I could only find out how.......HMMMMMM??
