No Sunlight, No Sunlight....Meik!'s DCFC Adventure and chaos

Where's Ben? #dcfc by thismeik

Oh howdy...Let's get you caught up.
It's been quite really busy recently.
I see some road work possibly ahead.
And I'm not talking about off-ramps or speedbumps.
Well if I am it'd only be for metaphors.
So a while back I got tix for Death Cab for Cutie....
A band I've loved for a while but never saw.
There was that period where I worked freelance and was scared to spend money on ticketmaster concerts...
That's a long story...
So I was up in the upper upper decks for the Friday show....
It was great but I had superfans to my right.
And a super-dick with his barely legal lady in front of me.
who both kept their iphones up the whole time in my line of sight...
I'm not saying i start kicking seats...
But had it gotten worse a beer may have gotten spilled....Just saying...
The show was great but I kept zoning out freaking about an audio glitch I was having for an event in 8 hours.
Not kidding...I get really zoned out by work stuff...
That's probably not a health thing....
So show ends...Had fun.
Go to work crazy early and then Sunday gets booked up...
I would have an 8 hour gap when I was done to sleep for 3 hours and eat or what?

Well ready for round 2 I headed to Ticketmaster and found a row 2 dead center ticket.
Bammmm!
It was great...No Iphones to worry about.
Probably one of my favorite shows...
Didn't hear a bunch of old songs I wanted to hear but come on...
The Magik Magik Orchestra add in was pretty impressive...
If you can see this tour please do so...
Here's some of the chaos in picture form...
oh hell from row 2
Bad hair day, good seats
Chris Walla not picture...
Meerkat
Benny
Yes
Acoustic
Benny
Ben & Chris or Strapp & Kyle
Strapp and Kyle
I texted this photo to krebner saying we could be a DCFC tribute thing as a backup plan in life
Blurry...Walla's gear rig is crazy
Chris Wallace walls Washington
The End
Yes! #dcfc
Oh after this show I went home, fed the dog and then she slept
After going crazy for 15 minutes after I got home she passed out in her bed
....went to work at 5am till noon...
Slept in the Meik! Farms in the sun for 1 hour.
Nap time in @meikfarms ...hopefully food to follow
you thought I was joking....nope
Then went back to work for 5 or 6 hours...
Then finally home to eat my first meal....
Which was basically 3 or 4 meals...
Oh things get crazy some times...

Me and Messina showing off our blue sunglasses...
You know lunch time stuff

5boro Doubleday & Cartwright designs featured in AT&T ad in 30rock in NBC, like woah!

I really enjoy synergy commercials.
Let me say this when they are done right.
In this instance a telephone company is promoting a phone, by partnering with an agency that's designed for 5boro & fools gold
Got that????
During 30Rock there was an At&t ad.
It featured a new phone.
They had the guys from Doubleday & Cartwright using said phone.
In that they showed some of their work for as noted earlier Fools Gold & 5boro.
With these types of things usually people connected to the design and skate communities work on these ads.
People helping out people...

Back in the city for a little bit.
Got to hit up a bunch of crews and spots.
Said Aloha to the traveler headed to Hawaii.
Trying to plan some big things and stuff.
Oh and I spent almost 2 hours at port authority because one bus left early and the other was 30 minutes late.
I kept playing this track on repeat

And found this acoustic version today
