Sleepy Monday - Special Edition

Tameeka Time here with a very special Sleepy Monday.

It's was not taken on a nyc train.

This photo was taken at the Long Island Childrens Museum.

It's a fun place for kids to learn and I had the pleasure of hanging here with a friend and their kids for the day.

I must admit it is a bit exhausting and I totally sympathize with the dad in the photos below.

Happy Sleepy Monday.

The Vimeo App

Vimeo finally has a (free) app
for the iphone. I know in the past they've offered the app to paying members but it was a good move for them to offer the app to everyone.

I've been using the app for the past month, it's no youtube but I'm enjoying it.

*There's a pretty cool record and upload feature. I haven't used it but I'm sure I'll put up some on the scene videos soon.

(the app is in the upper left corner in the photo below)






****If you've got any videos you want me to check out on vimeo, hit me up in the comment section below.

Back to the Bahamas


In 4 days I'll be heading back to Nassau Bahamas for a week of sand and sun w/ my bff Ngozi.

We had such a good time last year we decided to do it one more time..

Plenty of photos and video clips to come...

For updates follow me at:

Last year, every bar, club, or hangout we attended we kept hearing LMFAO's song Shots which then made it the theme of the trip.. I can't wait to discover this trips theme song.

Sadness is a Blessing


Lykke Li 's got a new video out that I'm really digging. It's for a new track titled; Sadness is a Blessing .. check out the video...

I'm such a sucker for music videos with that cinematic feel.

And on a side note, I will always love the song Little Bit by her.

Final Cut Pro X

Last month, a sneak peak of Final Cut Pro X was premiered at NAB.
Just to back track Final Cut Pro is a non-linear editing software application created by Macromedia Inc and the Apple Inc. - it's the program I use to create videos for my vlog page Tameeka Time and for CortesNyc Art Videos.

I'm pretty excited about the new features presented:

- a new user interface
- FCP can now support 4k resolution
- better render solutions (this is major for large projects such as films)

And I've noticed that Final Cut is becoming more and more compatible with canon cameras (which I may have to invest in one soon).

I can't wait to play around with the new FCPX

Here's a video from NAB 2011

Naked Man! Ahhh! - NSFW


I absolutely love the blog Subway Douchery.

This blog takes capturing candid subway photos to a whole new level.

I was going through my regular routine of surfing blogs and came across a post about the scantily clad man above ... lucky for me this post contained the most awesome video of the day!

I nearly cried laughing at this crazy guy strip down to reveal his manhood and proceed to cause havoc in a train station.

The best part of this video is not his take down but him chasing a lady and grabbing her Trader Joe's bag while she runs up the stairs.

O_O

RePo Games - TV Show - A Must See


There's a new reality show on Spike that I need to start watching.

This show is titled; RepoGames ... and it's actually a game show. Of course it was created by the producers of Jersey Shore (my heart is happy).

The premise is simple, repo men go around seizing cars from owners who neglect to pay their loans or leases. The vehicle owner is asked 5 trivia questions and if they answer 3 out of 5 correctly they get to keep their car(s).

And we all thought Jersey Shore was bad...

Ohhhhh good god this is the best clip I've seen in a long time... all I've got to say is "the green machine is paid for"

Air brush tshirts by CORTESNYC


Recently I edited a video for visual artist CortesNyc displaying his masterful airbrushing technique.

Cortes was commissioned to air brush skulls on a t-shirt.

While going through the footage, I realized that this artist can simply master any medium.

This was a fun promo video to work on and I can't wait to see what he airbrushes next.

If you enjoyed the work and want your very own custom shirt check out CortesNyc's Online Store.

Enjoy the video.

Stripper Down


The other day I came across a video of a stripper doing what strippers do - work the pole...

But this video is special...

No.... she's not the hottest chick in the world...

Unfortunately this young lady managed to knock herself out...

This video helps me in my decision to NOT take the oh-so-popular stripper pole fitness classes that my friends are taking.. knowing myself I'd end up like this... and I do not have time to be unconscious...smh
