Rob and Gaby asked me to take this photo.
It's either a band that Rob Manages or a Midtown Lyric...
Or I'm a complete idiot...
You make the call

Images keep popping up of the Secret Red Feather.
Most recently of an encounter between Rob Hitt and said feather.
What is it?
Where does it come from?
Can I use it as a spice in cooking?
We may never know....

Come kids you need to step up your game.
The bar was just raised by Jiscilla.
Working on Trainwreck photos right now..
Doing some sorting, picking and writing ideas.
A lot happened even in a short period.
Let me tell you a story about the secret red feather, originally uploaded by thismeik.
I will do this
But not just yet
And he takes the L train home after a long night at the office
I caught him after seeing the lady in purple start giggling...
I follow in photographic pursuit.
I would have shot more photos but there was a cop at the stair well.
And I didn't feel like getting yelled at or in trouble.
The suit I must saw was pretty serious
This train was even funnier cause Patrick from College Humor Show was on board as well.
I call that one successful train ride.
Now let's try to see if we can capture photos of She-Hulk or Spiderwoman next time...
So last night I stopped by B-side.
I left at some point to return to Trainwreck.
While walking I was blasting some Glasvegas...
Really feeling that record..Apparently I was blasting it quite loud.
You see a guy comes up to me pointing across the street.
I thought he was just haggling me.
Turns out Miles and Andrew were yelling at me
I followed them back and then the shenanigans ensued
You can insert joke here
Come here often?
Andrew is required by state law to wear his helmet while drinking
It's quite majestic
This is just random

These are Frag's feet, not mine.
I don't have more back story or research on these sandals...
Hmmmmm...but there was lots of sun
I wanna shoot some interesting footwear at tomorrow's Trainwreck...
Come with full flare and style
This was going to be a throw away photo.
But now I found out a reason to use it.
The girl on the left in green a choice spot during gang gang dance.
She's part of the canon army....I'll join when I get a 5D mark II.
But that's gonna be a little while off for me.
I kinda screwed my self over not grabbing a spot before.
I was running around getting what I thought were unique shots.
Then every now and again a swarm of slr's would arrive...
Additionally the lady on the right in blue dress is amazing.
I think her name is rebecca and she's been published
Like SPIN and many other places either online or print...
If I am wrong I apologize...
I am really excited to see the how her photos came out.
She's some one whose band photography I've studied.
I think I've learned a bunch from just seeing others work.
Maybe next time we cross paths I'll be like hey what's up, ur awesome.
But if you know me as some readers do, i'm just a dork
Soft Circle playing the drums in center after setting up his guitar loop
As usual I saw some interesting styles.
Blue dresses where really big this year.
I thought I saw beer on ice getting confiscated.
But everything was in control and all was fair.
Besides Bands, Models, parties, dogs, and such I've started to doc nature
If you've seen some of my previous work so far on ducks and geese.
I am writing this as the pollen in the air has closed my right nostril.
I need to take some allergy meds stat.
But with the weather getting nice I'm going to try to post a nice daily image
Something of nature that may or may not stick out...
From Dandelions to tiny little pebbles...We'll see

For some reason I was dreaming about Lincoln and Vowell last night...
And a Pair of Lincoln's
By that I mean Miss Sarah Vowell(Unless she's got a man) and Abe Lincoln.
Here's the connection. I have Lincoln's Bday..Vowell I believe has written about Abe and is also a heavy follower about his past like us.
Sarah I'm pretty sure was on Conan when I interned their promoting one of her books and chatting about Lincoln. Who Conan has had many a skit on Late Night where Lincoln was involved in many ways. Even being played by head writer Mike Sweeney. For which she would later come back on the show to promote her book Assassination Vacation. To which I just purchase today during a long time searching the shelves at the near by Barnes and Noble. One week to the day I was in DC for at this time I would be 12 hours away from standing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial....Lincoln Kennedy Kennedy Lincoln....Meik! Ok I need to pass out...I think I hurt my brain...
So I finally got the ball rolling on my Secret Red Feathers project.
Originally Thursday was going to be photo day, but it was painters nite.
I got to get a sneak Peak at Mers' giant masterpiece.
Don't even want to give any hints away, but it's quite magical.
U see Mers uses classical training of shapes, bodies, lighting & figures.
I come from the Playschool technique and Cinnabonn Icing methods
I didn't even take any photos of her work for fear of my alter ego posting them.
That's the comic books talking...just forget that happened.
But when it is complete we'll be one of the first to pass the word along.
So here's a look at what I got done.
No planning, leaking paint and hands covered in paint.
The smaller piece
Closer-Single White Feather
Let them Dry
And dry they shall
So in the next month I'm goin gto start working on 30 pieces like these
Large small and different variations...
I'm not too sure exactly what I'll do with them but I'll let you know...

Here's a set of photos of just that exactly.
My exhibit up above pretty much sums it up.
I noticed that we have a ton of photos of hyphy joyous expressions
Taken by myself as well as the very fabulous Nicole B.
Who can be seen right here
Here's some folks at Trainwreck having fun
Maybe some Jiscilla-ing
Not a shouting but a grinning smile counts...good job
