Timelapse of Flaming Lips in Downtown Tampa for Gasparilla Music Fest

I’m on the balcony with the computer dorking out while making time lapses of the Flaming Lips show in Curtis Hixon Park in Downtown Tampa. Pretty sick that we have good shows like this down here now. Please stop with the shitty cover bands shows.

The scene right now at gasparillamusic that just kicked off. Heard the Flaming Lips do a sound check last night, too. Will be watching the entire thing with the boy strapped to my chest from here while Brit enjoys it down there.

Multitasking with the boy strapped in this morning.

Everyone’s on manual labor while I’m on digital labor. We’re trying to get the basics set up for online retail doors opening up on February 1. I have a few more photos dumped from my camera here for you. Thanks for following along with our adventure to build something in skateboarding from the ground up.

Yesterday, Alvis Levi Meronek was born in Tampa, Florida. It’s been an amazing 24 hours. He’s healthy and chilling tight so far.

Are skateboard selfies just as bad as hot dog legs and duck lips? Maybe. I finally put down the iPhone 4 and got a 5. Just discovered slo-mo, ha. Sundown at Turtle Ditch with a couple meron grabs…

Brittany’s idea for maternity photos was us swapping out clothes. I of course had to change them all to animated gifs. Check the full size photos/gifs here: http://meronek.com/maternity/

I endured some nice stares from random bystanders as we quickly changed in our car for most of these. Meronek V2.0 comes on December 16th. I like this one with the full Tampa sign in there:

Kicks in Curtis Hixon Park.

The Thai Temple in Tampa: I think this is my third time at this place now. The first two times, I couldn’t bring myself to try any of the wacky grub. Today I dove in on some chicken curry and rice and it wasn’t bad. The little kid eating habits that are stuck with me for life still have me making fun of everything I see here, though.

Urban pumpkin patching in Ybor City.

A few photos from South Africa this weekend where the Kimberley Diamond Cup went down.

A few snaps from the pumpkin patch in Rochester, NY.

We got all grown up today and stopped by the Henry Plant Museum at University of Tamp. Interesting stuff there.
