two random things

January 26, 2008

the other thing, which has nothing to do with the first thing, is this clip. i saw it and thought is was kinda funny, but i wasn’t going to put it up here…but then other people kept emailing me sending me the link, so i figured that some of you would think it’s as funny as they did.




  1. Fighter on February 23, 2008 at 1:55 pm

    I actually bought that magazine and spendt my last money on it while i was in London( I know 2Β£ but im 13 from norway, im broke x) ) because of the article about you. I’ve like read it plenty of times.. and the story is very inspiring! … and btw.. I don’t know if you really read this but is there an email address where I can send a text i wrote? hope this isn’t concidered spam.

  2. Linkin_Paranoik on February 15, 2008 at 7:10 am

    I can’t buy that magazine cause I’m not american unfortunately, but I heard things about it which I don’t like.
    Honestly I think that magazine is strange…anyway I already knew the Linkin Park story! Cause I’m an old italian fan of you guys. LOVE YA ❀

  3. LPMIKEcn on February 12, 2008 at 12:17 pm

    I heard something about that magazine.

    But acutally,I don’t know how I could get one. =P (i always said so..)

    but actually I see some pics of that magazine.

    BTW, that clip,yeah,I agree with you Mike…

    that man surely kinda funny….

  4. Raspberry on February 10, 2008 at 2:43 pm

    I read the Magazine and must say i was both saddened and proud of the way Chester has taken very negative experiences and turned them around for the better. I firmly believe things happen for a reason and look where you are today! Your story is an inspiration to youngsters in the same situation all over the globe and i wish you all the very best for the future. x

  5. someone on February 5, 2008 at 11:27 pm

    OMG!!! i bought the magazine!! i was just traveling in milan and saw it!!! hahaha ya!! (british english is hard to understand 😦 ) ^^

  6. Lidda on February 4, 2008 at 11:10 am

    Man u look great!! (Chester’s hair looks strange…) When r u coming in Greece???? My friends and I r looking 4ward!!!!!!! πŸ˜€

  7. LINKIN_PARKS_BIGGEST_FAN on February 4, 2008 at 4:02 am

    I heard the magazine had lots of nonesense and half-triths about you guys and stuff… Is that true? If so, do you know if I can buy this magazine in Singapore? I might call and complain and I NEED THEIR NUMBER!!! LOL. Not really tho…

  8. WTF on February 3, 2008 at 10:34 pm

    That pic is kind of..scary.. for some reason. Something about the expressions on their faces.

  9. zahra on February 3, 2008 at 7:56 am

    i cant buy this! i live in IRAN????? MIKE I WANT TO READ IT !!! BUT I CANT

  10. Simmeh on February 2, 2008 at 8:37 am

    Hey Mike,
    I read the Kerrang exclusive thing (what you want to call it) and I just want to say that it was awesome for the band to be able to open up and tell everyone in further detail of the shit that you guys have been through. I’m glad that nowadays you guys are picking up on your feet and that your showing the world that you can all do it and thats why I love LP so much.

    Also, seeing you guys live in Brissy made my year=)!

    So inspiring. (=

  11. kuiz_worldstar on February 1, 2008 at 5:38 am

    oh my god !!!!! in book, Mike u looks so so awesome !!!! so cool man πŸ˜› i want that book!

  12. madprincessofthedrums on January 29, 2008 at 1:18 pm

    Hi Mike,it’s Cansu…Wow,cover is amazing and sentence cant be more true(:
    by the way,the people who sent comments about how amazing your shows are made me jealous!
    wish you guys have at least a plan!!! for Turkey…(when you read this,and maybe you’ll be drunk or by my chance ,im seriously waiting for reply :P)but it seems it’s never gonna be huh?you will never come here…
    anyways seem like i’m talking to myself…
    Cant wait to see inside of the magazine…

  13. tpbarbosa on January 29, 2008 at 1:14 pm

    Yeah I read it few days ago
    It’s cool to know Chester is fine now
    Hope it keeps in this way
    Nice video ^^

  14. Sabie on January 29, 2008 at 11:01 am

    Hey, Mike! It’s me again!!! Was looking for Kerrang 2day, he-he, you guys never look lame!!!! Whatever you do, and it’s true. Hey, by the way, i didn’t order Digital Souvenir Package and now i regret so much!!! How can i get it? I want the concert ive been on, in Manchester!!!!!

  15. YourConscience on January 28, 2008 at 10:35 pm

    Oh, yeah. Here’s something random…

    I’ve been trying to get in touch with someone (anyone, really) about helping with the MFR booths at the upcomming CA, NV, and UT shows, but haven’t heard back from anyone yet. There’s more and more posts about how they’re still looking for people, but no one will write back to me…? If y’all are still looking for volunteers, please have someone contact me ASAP so I can start making plans… You can reach me at or

    Here’s hoping you see this…

  16. YourConscience on January 28, 2008 at 10:29 pm

    “…a lot of the pictures are lame πŸ™‚ but then again, maybe that’s our fault…”

    MAYBE… Come on, Mike… You KNOW it’s your fault… =) Hehe. And I don’t know why this blog is titled “Two Random Things”, as if you always post relevant things… =) Hehehe. Man, Im fiesty today! Hope you have a good one! =)

  23. durg on January 28, 2008 at 11:26 am

    haha XD

    you guys need to start being cheesy in pictures instead of being so serious, show em the funny side we all know & love! =D

  24. nillp on January 28, 2008 at 10:56 am

    ha! lol

    the new exclusive video from LPU is hilarious..! i loved it.. x)

    you rocks, dude.. πŸ™‚

  25. Sharp_Swimmer on January 28, 2008 at 10:55 am

    Wow.. Been a Linkin Park-fan since May (I didn’t know music existed until then, you see) so I didn’t really know the stuff that was in that article.. Got to say, I really, really admire Chester for getting out of all of that, and I admire you guys for being there for him all the time. You must truly be the amazing persons everyone considers you to be. πŸ™‚ I hope with all of my heart that you guys will stick together as friends forever (hopefully as a band too!). But, to face the facts, you’ve kept it going career-wise since 2001, so we have faith in you! πŸ™‚

  26. edyta on January 28, 2008 at 10:12 am

    Hi, that’s edyta – from poland:) from warszawa. I’m glad to be here. i don’t remember many words in english/american πŸ™‚ I wanna see you in poland again. i’d like to thank you from … many … everything πŸ™‚ I think that you very interesting and talented guys. respect & 3mam kciuki πŸ™‚ zapraszamy do Polski na bigos πŸ™‚ buΕΊka baaaaj πŸ™‚

  27. ShadowerLiltani on January 28, 2008 at 10:06 am

    Some people posted parts from the article on the LPUMB. Frankly, from what I’ve read, it’s stuff we’ve known for the last, what, six years? It’s sad, but, it’s not shocking anymore. Somebody, please tell me something I don’t already know.

  28. IEv on January 28, 2008 at 9:39 am

    Hi Mike! When you will come to Lithuania? We are waiting you guys..

  29. LinkinPete on January 28, 2008 at 8:48 am

    wow, IΒ΄ve had network porbs for weeks.. and I came back to see IΒ΄m kinda behind everything (testweek? fuck it, I need to check MikeΒ΄s blogs =).. great that you educate us with the vids and all…funny stuff =)

    damn I wish I had that issua of Kerrang…

    ok, so good to be back, IΒ΄ll vote for the poll, even though I havenΒ΄t been able to go to an LP show..

  30. de_nice on January 28, 2008 at 5:05 am

    I bought the magazine on ebay! Can’t wait to read it ;]]

  31. Melk on January 28, 2008 at 2:46 am

    Reassure you, you are always so good-looking on the photos, Mike!!!

  32. kr1sty on January 28, 2008 at 2:08 am

    Hey, at least this dude’s got more $ in the bank than me!!! lol Some people should just stick to singing in the shower.

  33. shinoda_me on January 28, 2008 at 12:15 am

  35. nillp on January 27, 2008 at 10:10 pm

    given up, the new-live-video?!

    just ‘pure rock, man!’ πŸ˜€

  36. Fin_Fin0121 on January 27, 2008 at 9:35 pm

    Hey, guys here~I know I shouldn’t post this here. It’s an excursion from the topic. But I think it’s also a random thing.γ€€

    Actually, I went to a “rockless” rock’n roll concert of the world yesterday…..haha…

    The most ridiculous moment was happened in Taiwan….MCR rocks!…but the stadium sucks…..

    I really want to know what did they feel about the horrible event…..But they are not as diligent as Mike(post something on his blog almost every day)….haha….

    Sorry to MCR for the sucks stadium…..don’t be annoyed with Taiwan, please……..wu……..

    I’ll try to get some photos from my friends….

  37. WTF on January 27, 2008 at 9:11 pm

    lol@ that stupid video

    That was more..interesting.. than the usual rap about all the guns, pit bulls, bitches and hoes they have.

  38. AundreaJ on January 27, 2008 at 6:54 pm

    The video was funny! It was pretty good though! haha. LP pictures can’t be lame. I love every single one of them! =)

  39. Veronica on January 27, 2008 at 6:53 pm

    I never ever post on these things but I just finished reading that article and I have chills, I’ve been fighting with addiction for quite a while now and I’ve been using linkin park and now fort minor as tools for dealing with the withdrawl, (sorry im being stupid and pointless) …. it provides a glimmer of hope is all I’m saying. ok bye bye now

  40. Jess on January 27, 2008 at 6:53 pm

    Aww haha Mike, you and your little modest heart.

  41. nillp on January 27, 2008 at 6:06 pm

    gabriel simas is going to uk to interview LP.. i hope that LP give to us ~[brazilian fans]~ the answer that we all wish to hear since 2004..! πŸ˜‰

    and yeah annaloggirl.. we all wish that he continues to stay sober and we will always be here to support him in everything.. chester is such a fucking admirable man.. πŸ™‚

  42. Squishy_Ho on January 27, 2008 at 2:06 pm

    holy shit. i was wondering who he was at first but then i remembered where i’ve seen him: he’s actually playing in a well known quebeccer soap opera. so to see him in that… is the funniest shit ever

    i think Jon was trying to imitate this vid : or something… except that D-Natural actually made it as a single that he sent to tv stations… it’s in french but i suggest you check it out cause it’s just funny as hell.

    anywayz thanks for sharing a part of quebec/montreal’s shame with the world mike =P


  43. zeljka on January 27, 2008 at 1:26 pm

    haha, i watched the video below and than i thought you should try this: dutch rap, in my opinion a funny video. πŸ˜€

  44. Madlen on January 27, 2008 at 11:58 am

    i read the kerrang article and i dunno what to say…i knew the stuff but not so deep really…anyways the video was…wow!:)btw something you definately have seen- it’s the cover of umbrella by vanilla sky:)so funny!

  45. Crystal122208 on January 27, 2008 at 10:55 am

    haha ive seen that vid before but its still funny and i wanna read that article thing

  46. analoggirl on January 27, 2008 at 10:53 am

    I think I see the connection between the article and the video… This is the rapper that the label wanted as your replacement, right? πŸ˜‰ (Just kidding.)

    I’m glad you posted the video because that sh!t was funny. Nothing beats satire.

    Also, that Kerrang article was pretty interesting. I love reading about the band’s early goals; you know that Dave was trying to be realistic at the time, but he come off as an underachiever. LOL

    On a serious note, I wish Chester all the best as continues to stay sober. He has our support. πŸ™‚

  47. Y_ on January 27, 2008 at 9:40 am

    hey, post the “lame” pics ;p u look good on that cover πŸ™‚
    btw, i watched new lptv. u guys r so hilarious πŸ˜€
    u guys were here in…good days..have safe trips! and don forget wash ur hands before u have meals and after picking ur nose, so u don get flu, maybe. (…i got flu…i’m dying.. )

  48. Andizzle on January 27, 2008 at 9:40 am

    hey Mike,
    I have to say I gave up on Kerrang cos they kept slating LP, but i’ll give this article a go and see what the “shocking truth” is.
    BTW, you guys rawked Paris!

  49. Jaclyn on January 27, 2008 at 9:29 am

    I’ve just read the article……it’s hard something to say coz all is said here at the comments. I was shocked that Chester was so little kid when that happened ((( All I can add is What Doesn’t Kill Us Makes Us Stronger and Diamond is Just Another Piece of Coal, That Did Well Under Pressure πŸ˜‰

    Hm, the photos are just great, you look different and strange and that’s cool ! I Love You Guys xxx

  50. Renchy90 on January 27, 2008 at 8:47 am

    hmm…you loock perfect …are you crazy..!! and the photographers made a good job…have a good days at europe..

  51. LiiNKiiN_PaRk_GurLL on January 27, 2008 at 8:27 am

    heyyy Mike
    you’re doing a concert at the MEN Arena tonight (27th) and im going to be there!! :O:D im sooo exicted! only 1 and a half hours to goo… OMG!!! πŸ˜€
    thanks for choosing the MEN to do a concert
    You all rock
    Much love

  52. MICHELLEPINHEIRO on January 27, 2008 at 8:17 am

    i’m so deceptioned! in brazil don’t sale this magazine, so i tryed (without sucess) enter in files and read something, but i will have to wait the edition get old to read it! cool! it’s for this and others reasons that i really want to get out of this cowntry.
    but it’s ok. i’ll read later, and i’ll give my oppinion, of course, if you’d want to hear…

  53. Avi on January 27, 2008 at 7:17 am

    yeah, it’s definately your fault XDD

  54. AmiexLP on January 27, 2008 at 7:13 am

    WooHoo i have this kerrang

    i love reading how you started out even though i knew how it pretty much started but theres some stuff in here that was new to me and really intresting i’m so glad you got through that and you dedinatley deserve to be where you are now!
    yay i am seeing you guys tommorow at the 02…Shall be awweesome!


  55. karolp on January 27, 2008 at 6:23 am

    you and chaz are really great in the magazine picture !! you’re wonderful !! I really like you !! kisses for everyone from LP !! ;*

  56. oleander on January 27, 2008 at 5:31 am

    i’ve just read the article yesterday…terrific!!!

    great to get to know what’s ur beginning like-really enjoy the audition part aha!

    apparently chester’s been much better now, it’s really brave for him to tell the truth, which made me respect him more

    ps.chester’s earring and his haircut fit…however, i do not like them very much, not so rock…

  57. zeljka on January 27, 2008 at 5:22 am

    i dont like the cover, it looks so wrong. like somebody had done it in 5 minutes. the whole composition just doesnt fit together.
    and chesters earings... i dont know. less is sometimes more… πŸ˜‰

  58. AS_21 on January 27, 2008 at 5:13 am

    about video… just LOL… xD and one more thing about that pics… they’re not any kinda of lame.. but what are those chester’s earings ?? looks funny… ^^


  59. Illara on January 27, 2008 at 4:48 am

    LOL! mike, that mag pic was actually awesome.. it wasnt that bad πŸ˜‰ btw, that video was funny alright! πŸ˜€


  60. nooon on January 27, 2008 at 4:48 am

    Hey, i hope that you got that reindeer-thing, with text greetings from finland !
    And i hope that you got the message also πŸ˜‰ That means, that we in here would reeeeally love, if you would visit here β™₯
    I’ll wait that day, and hope..

    Love you ~ β™₯ β™₯ β™₯
    Noora, Finland

  61. nooon on January 27, 2008 at 4:43 am

    I have to find that magazine somewhere !
    And i think, that you look good at all the pictures (β™₯), but of course almoust everybody sees themselfs different way than others.

    Btw i just bought The Rising tied, and im just listening song Right Now. β™₯
    I also copied the pictures, what were on the cd. I love this music, really, even i have never been so big fan of hiphop. But FM changed that thing. Thank you, really, for this wonderful music ! β™₯

    Love you ~ β™₯ πŸ˜‰
    Noora, Finland

  62. Mickey on January 27, 2008 at 4:39 am

    I just read the article (thanks to you, who send it to me. I don’t remember your name, but I owe you one!) and there were a lot of new things in it, for me.
    I’m a little shocked that it was so tough on you guys and especially on Chester. It makes me incredibly sad, to read that you all had such a hard time, when you first started out and that Chester had to go through all of that crap. He’s better than that. You all are.
    But I’m glad that it seems as though you’ve worked things out and are now in a good place, with each other, as well as in your personal lives.
    Stay on the path and know that you’re all insanely loved around the world.

  63. hit_n_run_me on January 27, 2008 at 4:36 am

    Thought that was a good article in kerrang; never sure to trust whats written in magazines and such but I guess I can take it as gospel now-ish – I think there were about two other issues of Kerrang you and Chester were in, I’m guessing on the same day cos your wearing the same clothes (I’m not sad at all or have nothing better to do); just thought Chester’s black earing swirl thingys were rad.

  64. EddieB on January 27, 2008 at 4:18 am

    Sup Mike, its not that bad of a picture- just most people think that there own pictures are lame but you can pull them off, not just saying that cause im a LP fan or anything .. hehe.

    Great work in Nottingham btw – Hoorah for chester – i was right underneath him when he came up on the railings and sang given up- if only You came to the 2nd barrier mike. . .

  65. Clarebear on January 27, 2008 at 3:46 am

    I’ll be buying it next time I see it. That video was pretty funny too, thanks for that

  66. Stelios on January 27, 2008 at 3:44 am

    haha, cool vid.. and i wished that we here in cyprus could get KERRANG 😦
    aanyway, check out some sk8 decks that I painted πŸ™‚


  67. ell93 on January 27, 2008 at 3:42 am

  68. Maksu on January 27, 2008 at 1:12 am

    Hey Mike, that video is funny :D, keep on with the cool posts.
    And i noticed that i am not the only fan around here who is from Estonia. Hey Helene i’m from Estonia too πŸ™‚

  69. Helene on January 27, 2008 at 12:53 am

    i liked thet story in Kerrang. and of course these pictures too πŸ™‚
    btw this vid is fucking hilarious .. i cant stop laughing :D
    greetings from estonia .

  70. shinoda_me on January 27, 2008 at 12:22 am

    although, i will say that a lot of the pictures are lame πŸ™‚ but then again, maybe that’s our fault, not the photographers’, ha
    L-fuckin-OL! =))
    NONE of your pictures are ever lame..
    and oooooooooo u’re lookin hot in the cover πŸ˜€
    i wish i cud get a copy of that damn magazine

  71. KATHYxx on January 27, 2008 at 12:05 am

    It really boggles me as to why you guys keep letting Kerrang interview you.
    sure they admit they flamed you guys like SEVEN YEARS AGO…. but i’ll bet they won’t apologize for squat what they said about you in May.

    lol @ the carrot picture..

  72. yanTyan on January 26, 2008 at 10:51 pm

    Qoo MINI CLIP!
    This is “In The End”~
    After listening this KUSO version, just laugh .
    Sometimes , i ‘ll imagine that if you guys sing chill out , funky songs ~

  73. twix on January 26, 2008 at 9:50 pm

    Thanks for posting that video because it’s freakin’ hilarious!!! LOL. I think that guy pretty much sum up what an everyday normal guy goes through…

    Awesome that you and Chester are on the cover of Kerrang magazine. Hmm…it comes with a free poster of (the band) Bowling for Soup. Neat. Hehe.

  74. karma_capella on January 26, 2008 at 9:40 pm

    lol i forgot! Cool video! ΠΏΡ€ΠΈΠΊΠΎΠ»

  75. karma_capella on January 26, 2008 at 9:38 pm

    Yoo Mike! Thank you for your everyday posting on your site MS.COM. Please persuade Joe, Brad, Rob, Dave and Chester to create their own sites πŸ™‚

  76. DaniShinoda on January 26, 2008 at 8:49 pm

    I forget to comment about… come to B R A Z I L !

  77. DaniShinoda on January 26, 2008 at 8:46 pm

    Hello MS, how was the things in UK now? This article in Kerrang! don’t brought me any new about LP’s old history but I think its cool to read about you, I don’t become tired of it, never.
    I like this video, its very funny.. the chorus impregnate on my mind. Can you availabe an email to send things for you?
    Good Sunday, MShinoda.

  78. nillp on January 26, 2008 at 8:35 pm

    oh, and btw.. i don’t think that’s ur fault about the pics. (x

  79. karma_capella on January 26, 2008 at 8:30 pm

    I agree! I agree! LP is the world’s biggest rock band. In Russia I never have seen that magazine “Kerrang!” but I would like to read this. It’s really cool that you and Chester got on cover πŸ™‚

  80. nillp on January 26, 2008 at 8:27 pm

    i’ve just read the kerrang! article and i didn’t find anything new on it..

    i think that the ‘shocking truth behind Linkin Park’, will be just ‘shocking’ for the new fans..

    but, it was a good read anyway.. πŸ™‚

  81. ChesterDEAN on January 26, 2008 at 7:22 pm

    I really want that magazine, let’s see if I can find it here where I live.

    About the video, I thought it was going to be boring at the beginning, but then he started to say a bunch of stupid things I couldn’t help it but laugh haha. The not so scary friend HAHAA…

  82. Sashy on January 26, 2008 at 7:03 pm

    I tend to avoid spending my money on crappy magazines that always claim to reveal SUPER AWESOME SECRETS which wikipedia has had for years. And Australia doesn’t get Kerrang, YAY. What also annoys me is that the MAJORITY of professional shots at LP shows focus on Chester and yourself; now that’s not anything against you at all, you guys take great shots (Okay this mag cover ain’t great) but it’s annoying that the other 4 guys do just as much work and barely get a mention? Yeah that’s my rant.

    The video is great. You just can’t say more than that.

    And your EPIC picture of a Horth in Perth (LPU video of Perth M&G) now has icon privileges on many sites!

    the last video was actually hiarlious.i have never seen kerrang, i dont even know if i can get a copy of it here in the u.s

  87. murry on January 26, 2008 at 4:52 pm

    I read that article today. I have to say I was a little confused as to why you guys would choose to open up to Kerrang, of all publications, but it was an interesting read, nonetheless. Especially since I was at the Club Tattoo show in ’06, and I remember Chester telling us about the seizures and the falling through the window that week. I didn’t realize what all was happening at the time. But I’m glad to see he’s on the other side of it, now.

    Also, I couldn’t believe they’d actually tried to bring in another rapper on you in the beginning. Well, I mean, I could believe it, but it was laughable.

    As for the video… ::puts hand up:: Now, this I can relate to.

  88. Chazanie on January 26, 2008 at 4:49 pm

    Well, I do really hope that Mike’s gonna read these comments, cuz i’m kinda dying to get a statement to these β€žrumorsβ€œβ€¦ Cuz – just like keineahnung said before – I can’t (and don’t like to) believe that all that β€œHey, these guys are kinda my best friends…” and stuff has been like good acting… but if so… Congrats, guys. You did pretty well! Pfft -.-

  89. Daga280 on January 26, 2008 at 4:39 pm

    i didnt know this song-he wrote it in nice way.
    50children hahaha it would be quite funny πŸ˜› (im wondering what Mike thinks while reading those comments πŸ˜‰ greets Mike)

  90. keineAhnung on January 26, 2008 at 4:27 pm

    @daga: sorry, if you thought/ it looked like I was talking (bad) about your first comment…but I (and I know chazanie as well) was talking about the headline of the article…”the shocking truth behind linkin park”…as it was kerrang, I expected it to be some super-shocking story about lp…like each of them already having at least about 50 children with groupies or being like milli vanilli or being aliens or whatever…ROFL…
    @gettin rid of mike: you’ve GOT to listen to “get me gone” on the rising tied…it’s about that story…great song!!!

  91. JazzyJaz on January 26, 2008 at 4:20 pm

    lmao,that video is fucking funny mike. πŸ™‚

    but what the hell is everybody talking about? chester started drinking again and stuff?

    im not not with it! idk what is going on. :p

  92. Snails on January 26, 2008 at 4:12 pm

    i won’t buy kerrang but i read it online! (and it must be true (to the doubters!) as it would have been retracted), really interesting to read and a little sad. Can’t believe how old some of the pictures look πŸ˜›

  93. Daga280 on January 26, 2008 at 4:12 pm

    keineAhnung, Chazanie>> when i said ‘i was shocked’ i was thinkin’ about this part about Chaz stuff and this part about gettin’ rid of Mike from the band o.O… rest of the article ive already knew πŸ˜‰ Chester>> don’t start drink again dude πŸ˜‰

  94. CHEN_IL on January 26, 2008 at 3:55 pm

LINKIN PARK COME TO ISRAEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!PLEASEEE we love ou so much. mmm.. the video truly made me laugh:] and i don’t thing that newspaper is sold in my country:[ i will try to get it anyway. you look cool in that photo and chaz is looking funny and cute:::]]]]]]LOVE YOU! you are the BEST!

  95. Chazanie on January 26, 2008 at 3:40 pm

    Read this article today and thought some parts of it were totally crap. I’m pretty surprised that you obviously think this one is a good article. Come on… You gotta be kidding me. What about that thing Chester started drinking and doing drugs again? o.O Any statement to this one?!

  96. keineAhnung on January 26, 2008 at 3:36 pm

    you liked that kerrang article?? o.O I mean, it was not as shocking as I expected (you can read about 90% of that stuff on fanpages, wikipedia & co)…but, I didn’t know that stuff about chester starting to drink again and feeling uncomfortable within the band…is it true????…I’ve seen so many videos with all of you laughing and fooling around…can’t believe you’ve been acting all the time…all that talking about “we’re best friends”… O.O

    btw @mickey: just email me ( and I’ll send you the scans πŸ™‚

  97. mary_ziv on January 26, 2008 at 3:33 pm

    spaghetti souce ha, nice one. at least he’s honest (we don’t know it but hey, who knows people are honest anyway πŸ˜‰
    magazines .. read books ha. no painting is actually best time-investment” right?

  98. Daga280 on January 26, 2008 at 2:54 pm

    I’ve bought this Kerrang! yesterday xD and this article hmmm its interesting and so true (i was shocked a few times when i was reading it). also i was thinking if everything in this article was really your (LP) words but if you said that its good article-i have no doubt πŸ™‚ see ya in London, i wish ive got the m&g pass :/

    this video hahha he is so honest (im scared too when i must go to the dentist πŸ˜› ) (^mada facka^) xD

  99. ninguem on January 26, 2008 at 2:48 pm

    hey, you need resize better the pics
    because they become much weird
    resize on photoshop or the program which you use to do this things

  100. Mickey on January 26, 2008 at 2:44 pm

    Haha, that was fucking awesome! What a geek…and not in the good way, either.
    I wish someone would scan the article from Kerrang! because we don’t get it in Denmark and I’d love to read it.
    ….got the hint, Mike? Hehe.
    And I’m sure the pictures are awesome 8P. With you guys…I mean…how can’t they be? Yes, I’m a suck-up, shutthehellup!

  101. Mag_Shinizzle on January 26, 2008 at 2:43 pm

    “The world’s biggest rock band” soooo true xD
    “The world’s biggest band” would have been perfect too πŸ™‚

    Love your website, it’s as if we’re always linked to you πŸ™‚
    Thank you for what you do, Mike. You’re a hero.
    France loves you,

  102. Anstice on January 26, 2008 at 2:27 pm

    LMAO! What the fuck? That was amusing. “And I don’t have many friends that would back me up. My friend Steve would, but he doesn’t look very tough pause ..You want some of this, bitch?” “If you got a pet cat, put your hands up!”
