looks like joe’s short film, “the seed” is getting some love from the fans on iTunes…he’s currently moving between #2 and #3 on the “top short films” list. let’s make it #1! to purchase it, go to the iTunes main page, then click on movies (upper left). you’ll find “the seed” listed as “Short Films” (not joe hahn).

<p><a href="">click here to see the seed on iTunes</a></p>


PS – this is what a couple people had to say about the seed:

    πŸ™‚ i love the street team, but i got a membership error now so.. 😦

  2. Heshotmedown on April 3, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Kinda sucks that NON US can’t download it at iTunes. I was really happy that it’s finally done and now I can’t watch it…
    And I don’t wanna do it the illegal way, I think there’s a lot of work behind that movie so I wanna support it the right way (:
    Maybe I ask a friend that lives in the US to download it for me ;o)

  3. ShadowerLiltani on April 2, 2008 at 10:09 pm

    I don’t do anything that has a lower-case i in front of it. So, if they changed “eating” to “ieating” I would never do that again. Same goes for isleeping, ihanky-panky, ilistening to Linkin Park…. wait… scratch that last one… I can make an exception to the rule. Anyways, is there any other way to see The Seed without itunes? Like, a normal VHS of DVD movie maybe?

  4. S113 on March 31, 2008 at 8:30 pm

    I do not want to spoil anything but the film, short, whatever you call it is really unbelievable. A whole series, miniseries, heck even a movie could be made out of this. I really like how Mr.Hahn linked everything together in the end….but I am not going to say anymore. Really great job Mr.Hahn hopefully we will get to see more movies or films from you!

    I hope you see this one day(:

  11. asianotter on March 31, 2008 at 12:07 pm

    been there, purchased it the day it was released! it is amazing! i am so bummed . . . i missed the chat with Mr. Hahn and Will Yun Lee on LPU and MySpace. i know, i know i am a loser, right? thanks for sharing.

  12. Aditya_the_warrior_within on March 31, 2008 at 11:20 am

    love the sound tracks .. instrumentals !! hope to se them in an album soon !!! or an ep is also fine …. the seed rocks !!!

  13. Ann on March 31, 2008 at 10:06 am

    Hi mike!!!

    I m so happy right nw
    Ive just bought my ticket for your show in spain!!

    love you!!


  14. nillp on March 31, 2008 at 10:03 am

    navee, u’r so right! this same thing happend to me and it really sucked.. T_T’

    talking about this, another thing that really annoys me is that all* the LPU contests are just for “us residents”; and almost all the ‘non-us-residents’ pay more to be a LPU member and aren’t able to join the contests..

    all the ‘non-us’ thing really suck. ¬¬’

  15. linkinparc on March 31, 2008 at 8:54 am

    oh and yes:

    you wanna see HQ pictures of you or other band mates?
    then check my site out:


    for example this one (it won’t appear in High Quality)

    maybe you will check it out, maybe not…

    who knows…

  16. linkinparc on March 31, 2008 at 8:53 am

    Unfortunately it’s not working for NON US people, so I had to download it illegal and well I wanted to support the movie, because 2 bucks aren’t really much (i think it’s 1,30 euro) but as I said it didn’t work…why am I saying that I have downloaded it illegal…

    I have to tell you something, about the Instrumentals….like: DO MORE! DO AN INSTRUMENTAL EP! damn i love your instrumentals because you are giving to us, the base, the foundament and we can put our emotions, lyrics and etc on it.
    because of the instrumentals we have a personal relationship to you it’s like we are working together!

  17. yanTyan on March 31, 2008 at 7:35 am

    I’m a good guy,hehe
    i have seen this as soon as possible.
    And amm…
    be care to bid in ebaX
    Dishonest check and Unreal bank a/c/////

  18. Fishgoingwest on March 31, 2008 at 5:28 am

    I desire to purchase,but itune shop is not available to China.



    Maybe I have to think about moving to another country….


    Good Luck to The Seed~~

  19. JazzyJaz on March 31, 2008 at 4:07 am


    Go Joe! ♥

    man,now it sucks that i dont have itunes. gah. D:

    hope it makes #1 (:

    xxxJazzy Jazxxx

  20. rockermeg on March 31, 2008 at 3:45 am


    I’ve just been on Chester’s website and it says about the next video!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Can you post any other info on it??????Please???!

    I know we can rely on you Mike (hopeful smile),

  21. rockermeg on March 31, 2008 at 3:41 am

    Wow, congratulations Joe!

    That’s so awesome,I really hope it gets to #1!

    Mine’s downloading this very second!

    Another load of congratulations to Joe,

  22. SquideMS on March 31, 2008 at 2:50 am

    This is all very interesting but in our “great” country adsl internet is very expensive, and if we compare the price of the internet and the montly salary we can found out that salary isn’t much bigger than tha price of the internet. That’s why, I just want to know.Wouldl “The Seed” be sold in shops?Cause our country is terrible, it was difficullt for me to buy MtM and it’ll be much more harder to buy The Seed on CD or DVD

  23. akitagirl on March 31, 2008 at 1:19 am

    Congrats to JH on a job well done! I purchased The Seed from itunes! Hope it helps make it #1!!!!!

  24. MusicalMorphine on March 31, 2008 at 12:52 am



  25. maria on March 31, 2008 at 12:47 am

    Well, I’ve seen this film in Linkin Park community on (i’m its member currently). And there was even posted the video of it) But now I can’t find it there to refresh my memory. Anyway, my first impression of it was positive) I even got impressed) Your info and that site that you’ve posted here) is useful. Sorry if I didn’t write something about the plot) Have a very good day!

  26. xLinkinParkFanx on March 30, 2008 at 8:27 pm

    im glad joe hahn’s short film is getting the love it deserves. the trailer looks awesome! i would LOVE to buy it. xD buut i can’t get iTunes cuz i think you need like a credit card or some thing. and i dont have one! i shall beg the parentals (:

  27. navee on March 30, 2008 at 8:14 pm

    ABOUT THE NON US COUNTRIES… i hate that so bad!! what happened at you tube??? i used to watch al the lptv episodes and now it comes up with that i cant see them anymore cuz im not in the US….. im from mexico (Mexicali, Baja california) i live i few minutes from cali and with all respect thats bullshit same with the SNL you tube channel hate that.

    PS. the seed rocks i havent see it completly but the trailer looks really dope JH is a bad ass congratulations for him!!

  28. nillp on March 30, 2008 at 7:19 pm

    yeah.. i’d love if the seed was available for all non-US countries..

    ’cause i’ve already watched it; but it was in an ‘illegal’ way.. so, i’d be glad to do it in a ‘legal’ way.. ^^’

  29. bec on March 30, 2008 at 5:16 pm

    I second Roz’s comment seconding mine – if you want me advertising something on my website then it should really be available to 60% of the users including the site administrator!

    So until I can watch it myself the main advert on LPF will be pictures of ‘message board / comment page lurker’s arse, modelling the MFR bandanna…so far there have been no complaints about that

  30. prisonsecks on March 30, 2008 at 4:54 pm

    I second Bec’s comment about making it available to more people. It isn’t fair to send us street team emails telling us to promote something we can’t even watch…

  31. Seal on March 30, 2008 at 4:37 pm

    Hmm, well I saw The Seed as soon as I realized the technical difficulties were void, which was about 12 hours after they fixed everything up. XD
    I liked it. It reminded me of some LP music videos at some points, which was kinda weird. I hope it gets nominated for an Oscar next year, though. Hahaha, that’d be great for Mr. Hahn.

    I too am in favor of you singing No Roads Left live. That song kicks so much butt, and it shows how much you’ve grown as a musician. πŸ˜‰

  32. bec on March 30, 2008 at 3:53 pm

    Dear Message Board / Comments Page Lurker,

    ‘The Seed’ is not available in the UK – can you please have your friend Joe make it available here and in other non-US countries?

    Many thanks


  33. Vermillion on March 30, 2008 at 3:00 pm

    it’s not available for Germans so i have to disappoint you =P but i saw it, anyway cause some LP-fansites ripped it… sorry. i was too curios about it and i didn’t even know whether it will be available for us some time later. fazit: i really like joe’s compositions but i don’t really get the movie – have to watch it some more times i guess. the whole atmosphere of the short film is really good, too and the end is nice – a cliffhanger^^.

    well mike, one thing i really would like to know is: will the PR tour in Europe also be a’green’ tour or is it not possible?, because there isn’t a statement of the band about this so far, so i guess it won’t be.

    have nice holidays

  34. vanessa_6487 on March 30, 2008 at 2:01 pm

    Well I haven’t got the time to login into the itunes store to purchase it… but I will for sure…. I do anything for you guys…. you guys are the best…n you are AMAZING… well I think that the critics are important but if they don’t liked it oh well… as long as the fans do that’s all that matters ;] …. and we {the fans} are going to make it #1 …. I love u and take care ;]

    Att. Vanessa

  35. soyuneik on March 30, 2008 at 1:37 pm

    Damn. harsh critics and some brutal honesty? (best read with a high toned sarcastic voice)I’m pretty sure we’re only paying to hear his music on media and the shows as they are purchased and for when they happen. But I do not believe that we have purchased The Mike Shinoda service in which he’s a ‘work for hire’.

    Maybe in the future there will be a ShinodaBot (each sold separately)Everything is leaked on the internet…. Its really a matter of your personality. I’d rather not have [ greedy cheap ass] as one of my traits. Especially not if I come here everyday talking about how much I love a band.
    [end sarcasm]
    Ps: Hahn Rules everything around him

  36. svetok on March 30, 2008 at 1:18 pm

    the seed is awesome! such a brilliant idea! it just blows ur mind!!!
    mr. hahn is the best!!!

  37. AS_21 on March 30, 2008 at 12:59 pm

    yeah I’m impressed too πŸ™‚ GREAT!!! people like it (so do I)


  38. Vecel on March 30, 2008 at 12:39 pm

    i saw it and im impressed. actor suck but thats all minus. should be longer(i know its shortmovie but still). btw,what up with your break time? know youre still busy but it would be nice to know how you spend your time know like writing new stuff with LP or SOB or planning new stuff to live shows. First post here,hope you read it. Peace

  39. Xavi_cardenas on March 30, 2008 at 12:25 pm

    did you people know that LP fun sites leaked the movie… for free???
    i’ll wait till it gets into youtube lol i don’t have the money T_T and i don’t like to steal

    mike did you know about a guy that is saying that is you in fotolog???? well… now you do πŸ˜€ (if you read this)

  40. LPSoldier on March 30, 2008 at 12:23 pm

    The trailer about The Seed was really amazing.
    But i can’t purchase it ,because I life in Germany …!
    And yeah ,I like “no roads left” 2 ^^

  41. cuz on March 30, 2008 at 12:15 pm

    The Seed rocks! i saw it few days ago and i love that! i also love the music from the film πŸ™‚ and as someone said before it’s very nice to see you guys supporting each other πŸ™‚ No Roads Left live? oh yeah, that would be very very exciting πŸ˜€ much love from Poland Mike πŸ™‚ and also to Brad, Chester, Joe, Rob and Phoenix πŸ™‚ have a nice day


  42. AnVanoppens on March 30, 2008 at 12:07 pm

    my question for joe didn’t get through.. πŸ˜₯

  43. lp_fm_fan on March 30, 2008 at 11:58 am

    I bought it when it was available which wasn’t the 25th because of ‘technical difficulties’ but I got it ASAP and I love it, Joe’s directing skills are amazing. πŸ™‚

    I also went to the chat on the LPU and Joe and Will made some hilarious comments! πŸ˜›

    POST IN THE LPUMB, please? 😦

    hehe, take care Mike!


  44. AnVanoppens on March 30, 2008 at 11:52 am

    yea, i think “no roads left” is a really great song, actually it’s my favorite ^^ we all want to hear it played live

  45. nillp on March 30, 2008 at 11:50 am

    i think that Jome’s question, is the one that each fan would love to know the answer..! πŸ™‚

  46. EllePi on March 30, 2008 at 11:50 am

    I can’t purchase it because I live in France 😦 Is there an other way to see it?

  47. nillp on March 30, 2008 at 11:48 am

    the seed is completly amazing.. it’s really great to see that u guys support each other..! πŸ™‚

    and yeaah! let’s make it #1! (:

    I’m glad Joe’s film is going good, but noone outside the United States is able to purchase it. It sucks!

    And Mike, will you ever play No Roads Left live?
