new orleans / socalled video

February 24, 2008

two things: one, the tour’s going great, and we’re almost to new orleans…as many of you know, we still have our eye on the slow progress in the rebuilding of the areas affected by hurricane katrina. we funded two homes for habitat for humanity via music for relief. it’s very exciting. we’ll be there on wednesday (after shows in lexington and nashville) to hang out with the home owners and help build on-site. thanks to all who have been donating and participating!

two: check out this video i just found online.

  29. linkinparc on February 25, 2008 at 2:00 am

    I would like so much to donate…to buy that badana, you know phoenix has…but I have no paypal =(

    let’s make a deal: you are sending phoenix’s bandana to me, and I’m gonna ask my dad to donate, because I think he has paypal.
    deal or no deal?

    could you please show this to dave? i donT# know if he got my potrait, he picked it up on stage…but he said nothing yet, i spent so much in this real life potrait =(

  30. Ezza on February 25, 2008 at 12:27 am

    it’s fucking disgraceful that New Orleans is still in the condition it’s in!! The worlds wealthiest country cant even look after their own ppl… and i think that it’s sad that its hollywood footing the clean up bill and not the US government!!! but at least someone is doing something……there’s my rant

  31. AS_21 on February 24, 2008 at 11:50 pm

    that video is PERFECTLY AMAZING!!! and those Jewish cowboys.. Love it.. πŸ™‚


  32. ColorScheming on February 24, 2008 at 11:03 pm

  33. Sashy on February 24, 2008 at 11:00 pm

    That video weirded me out…

    Also, it’s great to hear that you’re being so active to help people in need.

  34. mina on February 24, 2008 at 10:53 pm

    Jewish cowboys are the best kind of cowboys.

  35. Akaree on February 24, 2008 at 10:51 pm

    This video is made by a genius. It’s excellent. Aki likes it a lot.

    PS: Last night at the John Labatt Center in London, ON…did you see a girl passing out after one of those stupid surfers smashed his heel into her head? then ambulance was there…? That was me. Aki was a volunteer for MFR & Missy said we can go watch your show when we were done…it was great up until that point. I’m just glad that I was able to stay conscious until Chester said good night. Aki’s head is in pain & my neck, can’t even move it, my shoulders are sore. My work as a photographer starts at CN Tower Monday at 11AM, can’t miss my first day, anyways the point is…THIS IS HOW MUCH AKI LOVES LINKIN PARK!!! =D

  36. Romana on February 24, 2008 at 10:48 pm

    Great to hear the shows are doing well:-)
    You guys sometimes on a show say thanks to the crowd, for donating/suporting Music for Relief.
    But i want to say to you and the band: THANK YOU!!
    Even i’m not an american (Europe,Netherlands) i think you did a great job on the MFR!
    I Really like it how much energy there’s going into the project, to help people who need it very hard.
    So Thanks to you this time πŸ™‚

  37. Jeana on February 24, 2008 at 10:31 pm

    Very weird idea for a music video, but somehow… i like it =)

  38. ManBearPig on February 24, 2008 at 10:31 pm

    Apparently my last post didn’t post? Either way…

    Phoenix was telling me about this during the private MNG Saturday night in London, and I told both Chester and Phoenix how amazing you guys were for actually taking charge in a situation a lot of people are all talk. You don’t just make a simple donation of money like a lot of other celebrites do, you’ve set up a framework to be proactive, to do stuff and not just spew rhetoric. And you use your position to spread the word to others. I’m glad I could help out with the Detroit and London MFR auctions I won and would do it again in a second.
