    hey Mike..i got a question for ya.. why don’t ya come to LPMB anymore ?????? seriously why did you abandone it?
    and if you went there..you’d see that everyone hates the new layout..sorry man but white isn’t working for us..we REALLY REALLY need the black back and the whole LP community is falling apart..
    one more thing i think you’re not caring for your online fans anymore coz you took away the LPChat and numb journals and everything that was good in the old site.
    sorry don’t mean to be annoying bitch i just wanted you to notice that we have some complains..
    nywayz..love ya loadz.

    Just read your SOHH interview…Ironic part is what you mentioned about kid robot. Me and my crew were buying these lil guys 2 days ago in philly and battlin each other to see who’d get the coolest one.

    Renchy is about to receive a lot of spam. Bots that search though websites pick up anything with an @ and an indication of a url in it. and send that information to spammers.
    Today’s lesson, boys and girls, is to not post your email address in a public comment. And to not spam the comments section because it will come right back in your face.

  20. nillp on January 13, 2008 at 12:00 pm

    just passing..

    have a great day.. (:

    heya~ it’s my first time posting here😉

    i’m not sure if this is the right place to ask, but i was wondering if you could tell me how i can apply for a scholarship into Art Center. i’m very keen on joining the college after my A Level examinations here in Singapore, but i’m not familiar with the transfer system and all that ^^;; i’ve tried looking on the internet for information but i’ve still been pretty much clueless. i’d really appreciate some advice if you can find the time to give them. if it’s not possible then thanks anyway😉 you’ve been a great inspiration with your art and your music. keep it coming~

  25. nillp on January 12, 2008 at 11:30 pm

  59. nillp on January 12, 2008 at 8:53 am

    honestly, politics sucks to me.. they never help who really needs help..

    i don’t know if in us is like this.. but here, the politics just want to take money from people who doesn’t have much, and spend in their mansions, private jets, homes abroad… they don’t give a shit for the population less favored.. they just want their votes by promises never performed and their money.

    this situation really annoys me. ¬¬’

    I think it’s incredible just how crazy people get about elections. I agree it’s important for us Americans to vote for what we want but what most people don’t understand when they’re voting is that all the issues the candidates say they’re going to fix or change might not happen. It’s not just for the President to decide on. Issues have to go through the rest of our government as well. Also, I just wanted to say, “Thanks Mike!” http://www.sesc.k12.in.us/Cass/Courier/08seniors/Shaela/newspage.htm

  61. maria on January 12, 2008 at 7:30 am

    Hi Mike! I’ve never laughed so much in my life)))))))))) That’s really great) Thanks for the oportunity to do so) haha)
    And in my country those politians are just the same) Sometimes they’re getting on my nerves by saying the same things)
    And it’s better not to watch the tv debates with these you know what I mean) I’ll say it using another words: it’s better not to watch the debates on tv where these puppets and clowns participate.
    And who of the candidates in your wise opinion will win the elections? And how are you doing? Have a nice evening) Maria

    “Why are so many people trying to get mike’s attention not relating to his comment?” by Jenn
    I think that´s probably because we want his attention! and sadly we don´t have so much else to do.
    And, tristyn, that thing about spam it´s not even real. I know MS don´t have the gift of the time but we are only asking, by the way, for some attention. That´s all. I ´m going to insist on: “Mike, read the comments of the for last blog (LP Tours) – read it and think about it…” by MelMinerva.

  65. akitagirl on January 12, 2008 at 4:59 am

    Once again, funny video. To bad this is really the way this election will be covered. Usually it’s the politicians that give comedians a ton of material – this time I guess the press covering will too. LOL

  69. AS_21 on January 12, 2008 at 3:11 am

    wow!!! Chuck Norris is the most important person to hear news about… But what was he doing?? xD 24 / 7 informations are boring.. thay always could find some catastrophe and talk about it all the time… or they could find someone’s death and also talk about it all the time… that’s why they’re 24 / 7 ^^ yeah.. video was awesome… xx

  70. duendecilla_suky on January 12, 2008 at 2:40 am

    the video is really funny!
    lol
    Now,here in Spain is something like that too…I hate it!!
    all politician are the same…

    Thanks for sharing the video with us. I enjoyed it. =)

    I actually watch CNN pretty much every day before I head out to work. It’s a good way for me to know what’s current in this world. I don’t want to feel like I’m living under a rock. Ha. Especially right now, I watch it more often because of the Election. So I’m use to all those weird things that goes on those networks. LOL.

    Whoever you’re going to vote for, Mike (if you are going to vote?), hopefully it’ll be the same candidate like mine!😉

    everyone. stop spamming the “read my comments!” comments. don’t you see that’s the problem?? if people didn’t spam… it would be SO much easier for other people’s comments to be read. and the more spam there is… the more a person won’t want to read the comments knowing they’ll just hear the same things over and over. and don’t even TRY using the “we want mike to see it!” argument. it’s just selfish. aaaight? mike doesn’t wanna read it, i don’t wanna read it, and i know you don’t even wanna read it… he’ll answer the comments IF HE’S GOT TIME!!! in the meantime… stop bothering him and everyone else. please stop the spam. peace.

    I never watch the news. The news gives me a headache.😦

  81. ShadowerLiltani on January 11, 2008 at 7:24 pm

    Just out of curiosity, who are you rooting for? I’m a Hillary fan. I originally was okay with either Obama or Hillary being President, but, I found out that Obama isn’t pro-abortion or gay-marriage. I just think a President should be for the people and all the rights that they deserve. How neat would it be to finally have a woman in office? We’d be a normal country living in the year 2008!!

    US elections get so much hype and the whole thing is OPTIONAL.

    this video is friggin’ hilarious! thank gosh that it isn’t just me thinking all of the electiion coverage is starting to look vegas inspired. LOL! You are the best and thanks for sharing.

  87. bec on January 11, 2008 at 5:46 pm

    Mike, have you considered renaming the ‘blog’ link: ‘YouTube video of the day’?

  88. mina on January 11, 2008 at 5:36 pm

    God bless America. Or something.
    Stick to the daily show with Jon Stewart.

  89. shan1105 on January 11, 2008 at 5:19 pm

    That was funny, who thought of taking the time to figure that out , that is creative. I I love to hear stories that put humor into all this political repetiveness that we americans have to live with until November. I like to watch colbert report and jon stewart on comedy central. they are funny. U either love em or hate em!

  90. christella on January 11, 2008 at 4:43 pm

    And I wanted to say, that it’s so great when you take time to add new things here every day:)

  91. christella on January 11, 2008 at 4:42 pm

    When I first saw this video here, I was questioning how people manage to keep up with this kind of tempo of giving information? That’s kind of American phenomenon, everything must be on a highest degree, supreme in every meaning. It’s interesting for me, cause: first, I’m studying advertising; secondly, I’m living in Estonia! Things are different here… We tend to discuss the same things again and again; even our movies and series have such a lack of events, striking text (speaking I mean) and variability. Our reporters can never compare that many things at once. And I’m not going to discuss about politics…

  92. xLinkinParkFanx on January 11, 2008 at 4:35 pm

    well that made my day a whole lot better. great post. xD hope you guys have good travels.

  93. DaniShinoda on January 11, 2008 at 3:05 pm

    Cool video, i saw some things of US elections in TV news and we’ll have some information about this… do u like politician? i dont..
    Hey Mike, are you on US yet? When you’r gonna to travel?
    Good next shows, dude. Have fun! I’m still waiting for a live show in Brazil this year🙂
    Love.

  94. murry on January 11, 2008 at 2:17 pm

    All that so they can sit there all day and make finely-honed and accurate assumptions and projections about what will happen. Except they’re always wrong. Thank you, mainstream media, for failing at telling us what we’re all thinking. All of that primary could have been covered in one concise half-hour. That’s why I watch Comedy Central. Now, if only the writers’ strike would get settled.

  95. Jenn on January 11, 2008 at 2:06 pm

    why are so many people trying to get mike’s attention not relating to his comment?….
    anyways, i am so out of the loop in this election. why is New Hampshire the go-to state? hmmm im not really into politics at all.

  96. Zach on January 11, 2008 at 1:59 pm

    Obama for president!

  97. andrada on January 11, 2008 at 1:51 pm

    u americans have some issues…..here are 3 maximum 4 candidates and all of them are corrupt and stupid :)).i went to the elections and the one i voted was elected(that was a big surprise)(for all of us)….. btw: here we have like 6 or 7 ruling party and u choose that ruling arty and its leader.:(,our president is trying right now to change this…i mean if u choose a president…u fucking choose him not 60 other guys besides him.and as another surprise our nation voted in favor for this change…..lets hope its gonna be a change…if u didn’t know the ONU is being held in Bucharest this year…..its gonna be awesome.

  98. AS_21 on January 11, 2008 at 1:46 pm

    ColorScheming: I don´t know if you´ re reading this but I will explain myself. I´m a little bit crazy beacuse I´m from Argentina and LP NEVES come here. So I say things that maybe have no sense. Like:
    “I am not insulting you because I have still some respect for you. But we want a show in here, man! Why is always Europe and not Latin America? What are we? It´s not fair. In the end, it seems that money is the only important thing to you. Otherwise you would be bringing joy to all of us and not only to those who can pay for your expectations with a lot of money. Isn´t that discriminating?”

    O damn ))) I haven’t watched TV for so long. It seems we’re gonna elect the main man in Russia this year he-he Now it’s come to my head, have you read Bernard Werber “The Revolution of the Ants”( La Révolution des fourmis) ? About some kinda rock’n’roll revolution ;)) If not, pls take my advice / kiss

    Okay besides the fact most of us dont really give a shit to be the first to comment, if you post in another language most of us aren’t dreaming to translate your comment. And a trip without returning that no one will say anything, no matter what language you speak? wtf does that have to do with anything?
    Just to let you know your first two comments say exactly what your third comment says. so yes i can understand your comments.

  108. ColorScheming on January 11, 2008 at 11:38 am

    I love spoofs of the news programs, because it really does make it more obvious to the people blind to it that everything is a news STORY doesn’t mean its what it says it is.They over exagerate shit most of the time as you can see in the video, for my english essay in college my topic was stereotypes and myths that younger generation faced. I talked a lot about the news and how they always show the negative shit about younger generations, just like when fox was so damn concerned about rap and ludacris pepsi endorsment,well needless to say i got the best grade i could get. I love hearing about current events but i try to stay away from fox and msnbc.

    this video really breaks it down..

    if here in brazil had a news like this, i’d probably watch news.. not just read the newspaper or the headlines at internet.. lol
