By now you you should no about Owlee.
He's the official Owl of Meik! Farms.
In the past few weeks he's dealt with droughts, hurricanse, chipmunks and drunk gnomes.
Also a farmer who likes to spray beer on him.
Well recently Owlee introduced the latest edtion, Crowlee.
Crowlee is what you call a beast Owl.
But also looking to make it in the world of Media Operations & iOS streaming.
So Crowlee has set up show at my desk.
He'll be over seeing web & desk security.
He'll also be an executive producer and an Meik! News/Weather/Financial Updates from the OD Studios.
He's ready to strike
Crowlee is working on his introduction video as we speak.
He'll be flying around the offices quite soon.
So stay tuned, say hi and toss him a salmon..
Another day and more monitors.
In the beginning of a tourney it's all chaos.
It's basically making sure things are working.
Jumping from feed to feed and various outputs.
Slates, files, QA, spellcheck, correct, purge and stay awake.
We got a good crew and a fun team.
It's a lot of work and a lot of fun.
Come on who knew this internet thing would have been this way when we were young.
Week 2 things slow down and the matches come more in to focus.
I might visit the open on my off day on Monday.
Hello lots of food and shenanigans.
But we'll just have to wait and see.
So I gotta keep my eyes peeled for now...

It's that time of year again
Oh the bright lights
I'm not onsite at the Open but in the control room.
Might take a trek out there on one of my days off.
This will be a staple of my diet
Oh and add some fuel in there too
Till then I'll working like an owl and what not.
Like this guy right here...Meik! & Crowlee
Cheers! Brooklyn I'll see ya soon

Just found this photo searching through old ones.
It made realize 1 haven't seen Mers in ages which I knew.
And two I haven't seen A Great Big Pile of Leaves in a while as well.
I think this was from a show at the Loft.
It was a random day of meeting folks at picnic.
Having beers at a locals bar.
Going to the show.
And then doing the NY-JC-NY-NJ commute routine.
I do believe it was a crazy and tiring day.
Lots of walking.

Yesterday was a friday I do believe.
Got some work done and edited.
Tested out some new things.
More Projects getting figured out.
But was also surprised a repair man in the am.
We apparently have fellow Swatch Watchers in our building.
This will come up again some time soon.
At some point I was debating if I could get a full sized Deer or Turkey decoy shipped to the office.
But alas it was Karen's last day.
A large portion of the crew made it to Houlihans..
I order a drink called a blue whale.
Since it comes with a plastic blue whale.
However since we were on the patio I was told the patio cup could not support the weight of said blue whale.
So drink after drink I reminded the water I would still like like plastic blue whale.
Kyle (leaf pile) even joined in with the chants.
Alas a storm came and we all sprinkled away.
Good times and fun farewell for Karen who is off to the land of Curb and Treme...
Best of luck....
But seriously what do I have to do to get my whale...
Not The Blue Whale (Scotch)
Look Pa Pa a Twister, a Twister

So here's a short story.
It's about a bird in Rome.
It lives in the the Colisseum with some friend.
Such a crazy, sunny and warm place.
Too many tourists night and day.
This sucker never flies away.
A last I had to leave.
Wander on I do believe.
Dude was just resting...no rush
He had a buddy hiding in the shade
In the back
Nice house bird...

Here's some info, raffle stuff and a performance Lily Virgina.
I'll post some more photos later and write about the movie and the cause both great things to help.
Raffle to help
I may have finally documented the mysterious Nardelli posted above behind hand.
I need to confirm my images are correct before posting.
Crazy night last night with surf, skate and bevy.
Capture the eluse L&K
To the winds...to the future...to the road
Veterans Park to Princeton University and minimal geese, a photo by thismeik on Flickr.
Sometimes you gotta break the rules.
Cause some trouble and use a brown bag.
It's been a long day.
Heck it might get longer...

If you haven't seen yet we're all about Jasper.
And Jasper is all about our bevy.
He had his first taste tequila tonight.
We forgot to portion for gnome appropriate portions.
He got hammered.
He's been running around Meik! Farms for the last hour.
He finally just passed out in the Kale & Swiss Chard patch.
Oh boy he's gonna feel rough tomorrow.
Oh boy that's trouble
Oh look there's the basil
Jasper says carry on, he's also sleeping in dirt...

About a year and a day or so ago I shot this photo.
It's of the lovely Maya Contreras.
I haven't seen much recently since but that's because we've both been working hard.
The lady has a magazine she creates and it is quite impressive.
The Dirty Durty Diary.
And oh so much more to mention
And this gent has been roaming all over doing techy, sciency and photographicy things.
Growing the meikmeik empire...
Cheers to all the fun stuff that happens.
It's crazy the difference a year makes.

I made a mess on Saturday.
Here's a few things I made up testing.
I have an idea for some Red Krylon later.
Who knows they might be headed to hang in a wall near you.
Of course the one up top is Meik!.
I call this one SGT. or Seargant
This is Meik!'s
