NO ART WE HAVE TO PHTHRD


NO ART WE HAVE TO PHTHRD, originally uploaded by thismeik.

So we pretty much shut down the offices.
In all honesty they weren't really even open today...
Ok I was watched SportsCenter on 3 loops til the Price is Right was on
Don't even get me started about today's episode.
Which proved the theory that spaz boys should not be the male models on stage showing the items...It was painful...Look it up on the intertubes.
Anyway I hooked up a special rig for tonight...
Combined my telescope with my copy/scan/face machine...
I'll be able to LiveFax the event tonight from BK to one Hardwired house...
Hahaha no...But now I wonder can this actually be done.

Mmmmmm I can't taste Dewars and Brooklyn Right now

BK BREW

I'm debating about props...I'm might just bring 1 For Rent Sign...
You know cause of the whole economy thing. Der!!!!!
Alright I have to prep AKA eat and get ready for a 4pm bus...
Catch you later

New Art tools


New Art tools, originally uploaded by thismeik.

Hey there folks, taking a quick time out today...
Just documenting some things I'll be working on tomorrow...
Got some signs, wood, feathers, scraps and various adhesives for mortar and cement...
You know the usual...It's funny I'm not really an oil paint kinda fellow.

I have a couple project ideas for my For Sale Signs
For Sale
It's either going to be 2 canvases with with two signs or 1 with all 4...
I'm leaning towards 2...1 clean and 1 vandalized.
There's a story behind this blue kobalt tool...
Which is funnier because I have 2 friends who worked for Jeff Gordon
So I started to Joke with them that I was a Jimmie Johnson fan...
Think I might have the NASCAR Disease now? If they hire I take cash
Kobalt
I just picked it up from Lowe's on a recent trips to my parents.
I helped my dad load up 30 bags of toping soil and driveway tools...
So I found this scrapper for cement and such...
I probably use it with apply adhesive to my wood pieces seen above.
Also it will great for spreading out bases coats on the canvases...
Hardware stores sometimes have better tools than art stores...and cheaper...

Hello Beard

That's all...Feeling a little grizzly...
This could be a completely amazing week

Stacked like palates in the middle of the night


Weird, originally uploaded by thismeik.

This was some side I walked by as I left Antarctica from WRK/PLY after party...It had been a fun long day with even a pleasant weather
Note to self don't wear vans slip ons if shooting photos and not sitting
Did you ever get that feeling?You know? Kinda like a confused zombie
The one where you go to a LVHRD event and then another only a few days later
Let's say you shoot photos at one but your also shooting photos at the other. I might bring some props with me....
Probably the secret red feather and maybe one For Sale sign...
But what about that weird midway point in between.
Maybe it's some sort of groundhog day syndrome...
Or in actually the distance between WRK/PLY and PHTHRD
Yep that's probably what it has to be...
I'm gonna bring some film and digital for Tuesday but of course....
I'm just debating if I got fixed or fisheye for my lenses.
Today was spent sorting photos, looking at laptops and Nikon D200's
One of which may be ordered in the next 24 hours...HAHAHAHA
We had a fun time shooting photos and meeting all the folks...
Check out all the photos and reports at LVHRD.ORG
I'll let you know when it's up for sure....

Two Ladies at Happy Endings


Happy Endings, originally uploaded by thismeik.

I'm switching this all up Quantum Leap Style.
You see after a night at Trainwreck we visited Happy Endings.
While me and a top level agent were at the bar acquiring Guinnes and some Cola flavored beverages we kindly waved at.
These two Ladies gained my attention from afar...
The were in that side room that's dark and is not pool tiled..
They had a few moments so I gladly shot some photos...
I gave my info but forgot to get their names....
Well It was almost 330am..so yeah

This is my poker face


Poker Night, originally uploaded by thismeik.

Alas recently was The Bloody Knuckles/Dutch Photographers Poker Night
I was in bright and fabulous form with some campari and sake...
Basically I spent the whole day reliving scenes from 30 Rock and the Life Aquatic...You think I'm joking I had a Shrimp Po' Boy and a Diet Rasberry Fanta.
I was pretty amazing have to say. Ok I might be lying about the Fanta but I did have a beverage that gave me the idea for Team Dutch.
All together there was a long journey and expedition

But here is some action during the match
Can I show you a magic trick
this is how i deal
I take this photo any time someone gives me their camera.
Other peoples cameras
You're welcome...Chips O'Hoy!!
chips
Good times!

There's a story here, originally uploaded by thismeik.

Oh yes there is a story behind this photo...
At the moment I'm confused where it's from via NYC or NJ...
You see there was a ton a commuting on Saturday.
I don't think you even know. It can only be understood as PATH madness
I have some more photos to post and I'll tell how I lost $20 by my own stupidity... Though I partially still blame Adam for his proper table etiquette.

Here's 5 things she may have learned last night....

1. I know the lyrics to Nine Days "This is the story of a girl"
2. That I kept calling Chris Black...Fake Chris Black as if he was a cyborg from the future sent to destroy us...Until I saw the Cartel guys and then realized everything was Ok.
3. You can't valet your Bike at AK
No Valet at AK
4. I have various disguises ready at all time... Pretty this photo will show up somewhere saying like confused irishtographerscarfguy

Good Nap for now..


Look at Me!, originally uploaded by thismeik.

I'm napping till the pubs open up....
See you there...

I've been to the promise land and it was good


I've been to the promise land, originally uploaded by thismeik.

And it is good...
I say this message on a day of days..
St. Patrick's day is one take to be merry and fun...
To remember those who are with and all that are without...
Each day to be waken should be cherished no matter what the notion.
Every Guinness sipped shall be embraced...
While cordially waiting for your next one of course...
I'm proud to be who I am and have no problem in saying...
I just may casually hide behind manipulate images and various aliases...
So with here is some inspiration for today from my Pilgrimage to Dublin
