Metermaids at Arlene's Grocery


Metermaids, originally uploaded by thismeik.

All of our crew of guests and comrads trekked yesterday to LES
Right down to Arlene's Grocery for a packed set by the Metermaids
We partied our way through before and wedged in to a packed room
The guys are getting much tighter on the sound with their full band
It was a pretty intense show and you might wanna see them before you can't...
Here's a bunch of photos in case you weren't there

Return to Lit....for NC-17?


IMGP1698, originally uploaded by thismeik.

So the past couple weeks I've been at Lit a bunch of times...
I like the dark vibe and stickers on the wall plus the $3 Brooklyn Lager
Thursday's bartenders are awesome one of ladies skates and the fellow has some pretty funny stories...
Definitely fun vibe so don't bring any bummer energy with you...
Your vodka tonic might come with a splash of mace if you're a downer..
So the last two weeks I believe I was shooting at the NC-17 party...
If it's not, let me know. But kids were dancing, gogo-ing and having fun
So here's some of the action from Thursday night
Oh miss nora...Anytime we hang with Nora it's a fun time
Oh miss nora
These two were having a lovely evening

She was going to be dancing and asked if i was taking photos..

Why hello!
Holding a pose with a happy look on her face

Dinner with friends and then bon voyage to Derek and Laura @AK
Those Bostonians or is it Bostonintes or maybe Bostoneers
Off to Boston....
Anyways avoiding the cold I made my arrival and had a fun time...
I was totally out of it though via lack of steep and crazy head ache
I took some fun photos of Jessie, Ariel and the whole crew...
I butchered a bunch with too much flash...Also prior day related
It'll look so much better when I get photo shop and a real laptop
So I made everything Noirish
Mysterious Ariel
All the kids
Trainwreck
I think I confused Michael too when I was...
I yelled I gotta hop in to this cab or something...
Oh Jessica!
Jessica by Meik!
There's a funny story about this since Jessie came in after the photo..
He had this amazing hat on checkered but I didn't know it was him..
So I said to myself. " I wanna meet that person because I like his hat"
Well it turns out I already have....
I got busted after this photo
I still claim I was hung over and looking at the ground

So here's the deal...I'm not sure about the next few weeks...
I'm trying to book fashion week and/or get a job...
Comic Con is coming up as well and I do have a badge. Hahaha...
So I'm not sure what I'll be shooting next week...
I'm still working on setting up the home studio lights and what not...
Don't worry everyday is always an adventure...

I was washing my hands and then...

The door swung open and all I saw was flashes...
You've gotta be on your feet all times with the LVHRD crew...
Plenty more stories to tell....
James Frey you've got nothing on Meik!
