For some reason photos from the 410 Holiday party are my ipod.
This is one that always pops when I have it in shuffle mode.
I haven't see these kids in a while.
Partly by time management, chaos and work.
Hopefully in a week or two I can return to Trainwreck.
Beware of these 3, they have Firery Dragon powers.
So I've heard.....or made up!
Meik-losophy #6 or 7: It's confusing when you worry where your couch is going to crash rather than where you're going to sleep. Moving Tuesday. Get ready to set sail on journey. Ha! I connect the picture to the words....
Just checking in if you guys and ladies are there as well.
We're in the bit of moving and job stuffness going on.
Boxes all over, trying to close on new place and some limbo.
Hopefully in a week all or most will be calm.
I can get serious about the art and taking more photos.
So time for one last sip of the franzia and push the boxes aside.
Take it away Tears for Fears................

Shadows from the Ramp at KCDC.
Bascially you can do this with a wireless hot shoe cord flash.
Point it down towards the ramp or ground and bounce it up.
You get some cool giant shadows in the background.
If you get the angle wrong it might mess up here and there.
It's also a lot safer than shooting a flash directly in to skaters eyeline
Here now are couple more to check out...
On the wall
Eyes closed makes it even more tougher
In the air
Just behind you..
More fun all the time...Stop by KCDC your next time in BK...

Bonus Saturdays with Reda at KCDC: I wanna do that, originally uploaded by thismeik.
This guy is always amazing and rips at KCDC.
He was popping some really sick airs.
My goal for the end of the summer.
I had some really good progression skating last summer.
Been off the ramps a little while.
Here's to the future, but hey the past is always fun
There's no such thing as playing SXSW the home game. You just drank too much whiskey last night, spilled a jar of BBQ sauce all over your head, possible made out with the lead singer of an indie rock band, played your mix of downloaded tracks from BrooklynVegan.com and then passed out in the bathtub. We're not judging you and I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that but there is a factual difference between the 2. Now take off your cowboy hat and get a wet nap to wipe your face.
More than meik's eye or the meik! you know..........

Maya's got an amazing smile in this photo.
So why am I looking confused and such.
I said I looked like a Miami club promoter or slack salesman
I was the one who too the photo.
It must be some synapse logic malfunction on my part.
Fun times, Good convo and I think Maya only spit on me once.
Hehehe. And I even shook a little for some 90's hardcore.
I need to get the whole Fugazi, Minor Threat collection.
Quinn and Maya make it look classy!
Smiles on the side of the ramp
It got a little packed...
No seriously, can someone throw me a beer...
Oh and the ramp got heavy...I'll show more of these later
It's gotta be the shoes.
No real reason to post this banner photo.
But I did. Fun fact. One of my favorite skate shoes is the Getz2
By none other than DVS. I was pretty sure I saw him last night.

In case you didn't know here's the recap.
The folks from Milk Studios collaborated with Shut Skateboards.
Milk shot some photos and shut turned it in to a limited edition deck.
It came out pretty awesom so they decided to have a party at Etnies
Here's some of the fun that went down.
Pause and Smile
Tall Boys and regular peebs
Masters of Beverages and refreshment
Models and Skaters
Lights and Packed in pretty good.
A nice sleeve
The Empties bin...
I hope you picked up a board...
Report for MeikMeik.com this has been Meik! along with Park Ave Temp....

The shoe explains it all. A Night at the Etnies Gallery of course.
We ventured down to Greene Street after a stop at BLT Burger.
Those things are just deadly along with their milk shakes.
Which tags along well with the night of skate and art.
A party vibe and some good times.
The cellar was full of girls and guys from fashion & skateboarding.
Young and old all dancin, drinkin some beers and takin photos.
The event was a combo between Shut Skateboards and Milk Studios
They this stunning model print and then a few selected boards from the 200 print limited edition run displayed on the walls.
I'm pretty sure I saw the model their at the event and wow!
The dress she had on was pretty stellar as well.
If it wasn't her I still hold those same comments but different person
Locals were all around some of the Fish and Epsteins crews.
It didn't go to long since it was a crazy day...
We had fun and hope you did as well.
Celebrate life, art, skateboarding and beautiful women...
But we definitely look forward to the next event at Etnies Gallery.
I'll post some of photos last night hopefully later today.
Till then, see ya!

Quite a busy day later.
Get ready to get some.
Shenanigans, Etnies Gallery, AG Party and more...
If time permits a quick visit to Savalas...

Full disclosure this is a file photo from a while back.
But my eyepatch today is needed for my back.
Gym spasms and I forgot I fell of my bed and in to the wall.
It was like one of those stunt falls except it hurt.
So I've been making a ton of those gimp moans.
Need some stuff to work out that hasn't quite so.
Might waddle down to Epstein's later to numb the pain.
Gotta take it easy for tomorrow.
I will be going head first in to St. Patty's day tomorrow.
Not sure if I'll make it to the BK.
Etnies Gallery for sure I shall be there.
Maybe I'll break out a pair of my cali-cuts....Green and yellow
Till then the next 14-15 days might be pretty crazy.
So sorry if it seems like we may have disappeared.
May 1st everything should be normal...We hope.!

It feels like Ireland...See Galway, now look outside, originally uploaded by thismeik.
I'm completely over this weather.
Pour me a pint and then let me take a nap.
This weather has been crazy.
Oh man I can't take it.
Can I get some sunshine.
Haven't been able to take any photos recently.
Might be back on it this week.
I hear Etnies Gallery might be having a SHUT/Milk Event...
With PBR....OK we'll definitely be there.
