    Hey Mike

    I idolize you man. You are the truth. Your music has truly β€œtouched me” if that makes sense. You paint pictures with music like no one else. My names Matt and im looking for some inspiration, maybe some pro-tips. See, I want to dj and maybe one day rap, but im just needing some advice on where to start. I can write lines, fix up some beats and trying to get some flow goin, but I just want to hear what you have to say. Anything really, maybe some short but sweet words of advice. It would make my day if you could spend 5 minutes to write back to a wanna-be dj trying to figure things out.

    send me a message at

    thanks in advance bro

    Speaking of concerts I just remembered my adventures at the Sanatarium Tour . I paid somewhere close to 500 dollars for my tickets. Yup. Oh yea, some drunk guy running to the pit got slammed by 6 or 7 security guards. Limp Bisquick was there.. I vaguely recall him talking about Britney Spears on stage. Chino answered someones cell phone in the pit. and me..well I’m not really a drinker but the guitars ..the guitars are no joke. I think I literally climbed over a bunch of people chanting in tongues as the Deftones came on.

    till you post again.. ‘Lets Fuck The World With All Its Strength, They Say Its All About To End’ XD

  9. kellz on April 14, 2008 at 8:52 pm

    my mom’s not too keen on concerts, i went to msg in february and pr way back in august and she starts freakin out when i mention bamboozle. says she’s only been to one concert, the kinks. i was like oh yeah i want to see the kooks in june. oops.

    just sayin’

  10. ShadowerLiltani on April 14, 2008 at 8:32 pm

    Cool seats. I love when you can get seats like that, which are close but not too close, and high up enough so that you can see over all the gigantimous heads.

  11. AnVanoppens on April 14, 2008 at 12:57 pm

    Hey Mike, must have been a nice show. But I wasnΒ΄t able to see it because I wasnΒ΄t at home this weekend. IΒ΄ve been on another Concert here in Germany of the very famous and fantastic “Beatsteaks”. That was real fun! If you want to check out their homepage which is in english too:

    Wish you a nice day πŸ™‚


  17. wsp on April 14, 2008 at 5:31 am

    That’s pretty sweet. You know what else you should check out – HAARP by Muse. It’s an INSANE live show. The cd honestly does not do the dvd justice. I don’t know how Matthey Bellamy does it… he’s truly one of the greatest musicians I have ever seen. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to discredit you or Linkin Park in any way. I’m a huge fan of your music and your live shows, but I seriously think that this live show by Muse is something that anyone who considers themself a true music fan should see. πŸ™‚

  18. Fishgoingwest on April 14, 2008 at 5:31 am

    This song sounds really good,I like that!!

    I’ve never heard the band before,but they did really good job on this song I think.

    I’m looking forward to their album

  19. shinoda_me on April 14, 2008 at 1:26 am

    guess what i saved this pic as? “Mike’s finger” πŸ˜€ as taken by your sexy iphone i s’pose? … someday im gonna own that …muhahahahahaha!! (if i dont steal it from you, ill own it like 99th handed)

  20. soyuneik on April 13, 2008 at 11:16 pm

    Now if you wanna talk about Serj and their songs. Thats a whole other story. Some people have this magical power to bring the best out of others.

  21. soyuneik on April 13, 2008 at 11:08 pm

    I think my musical expectations might be on some other planet. Its a good song and they’re very talented- I’m not trying to take anything away from them. Everyone has there own perception of what they are hearing and so of course this could very well only apply to a few. But, what I’m looking for, is that shit that makes me drop/stop what I’m doing and turn towards it. (possibly with my mouth hanging open) Whether its the melodies or the lyrics… One of them has to have that “special” thing I’ve never heard before or just flat out blows my mind. However, I have yet to even make something like that myself.

  22. shinoda_me on April 13, 2008 at 8:52 pm

    everytime he sang ‘lets FUCK the world..’ i let out an involuntary giggle …. i like the way he pronounces and emphasises so strongly on the word … haha!
    (kinda like the way you do in Be Somebody =D .. i almost got myself killed for trying it at the dining table with my Dad around =P)
    thanks for sharing! =)

  23. nillp on April 13, 2008 at 3:29 pm

    i’d love to see more pics of this night.. πŸ™‚

    cya; take care and have a great day..

    love ya ~ mk’nil

  24. analoggirl on April 13, 2008 at 1:51 pm

    Hmm, not feeling the song, but that’s okay. You’ve introduced me to Vampire Weekend and Enter Shikari so it’s all good. πŸ˜‰

    Btw, I’m amazed that Jay-Z, N.E.R.D., The Bravery and Enter Shikari are opening for LP in Milton Keyes! Bring that sh!t to North America! (haha) Can I make a request? Ask Pharrell and Chad to remix a MTM song Neptunes-style, (like Timbaland did for Bleed It Out at the MTV Music Video Awards). That would be sick.

  25. Crystal122208 on April 13, 2008 at 10:27 am

    sounds like you had a great time =D

  26. Sammy on April 13, 2008 at 9:03 am

  28. zahra on April 13, 2008 at 5:35 am

  29. cuz on April 13, 2008 at 4:55 am

  30. shinoda_me on April 13, 2008 at 4:48 am

    i cant even see this video now but im just obsessed with posting here .. haha!
    have a good day! πŸ™‚

  31. linkinparc on April 13, 2008 at 1:18 am

    haha you made the beginner mistake: YOUR THUMB is on the pic lulz…when I see my first pictures, there are soo many thumbs on it…but it’s cool…it has style =D

    what does the symbols under mean?

    and another question:
    I’m currently re-creating the rising tied painting, and on some i can see an orange it true?

  32. cynthia on April 12, 2008 at 8:46 pm

    ah system of a down lives on! btw just heard something like dj scratch and sniff on the radio, and they had some cool remixes of your songs.. different version of numb/encore, another version of it’s goin down, and given up vs. get busy .. it was pretty cool!

  33. nillp on April 12, 2008 at 7:51 pm

    i can’t believe u went; go fuck urself, dude.. πŸ˜› ~just kidding. but i’m really fucking jealous of u..~

    i’m sure that u had a fucking amazing time there.. next time u go, enjoy it for me too! πŸ™‚ they’re fucking awesome.. is really great hear daron and john in new music again.. the songs are just amazing.. πŸ˜€

    u could ask them to be part of PR’08 too.. (:

    and btw dear, it’s daron. ;P

    take care; cya..

    love ya ~ mk’nil

  34. lynndarwinharris on April 12, 2008 at 6:07 pm

    I like it. I will have to check them out now!!

  35. shan1105 on April 12, 2008 at 5:36 pm

    They are pretty dope. I will check out the album. Hey mike i was on you tube and heard this kid do a piano solo cover of no roads left. check it out if you have a minute, its not bad.

  36. Ravaging_Hamster on April 12, 2008 at 5:05 pm

    Good song. I’m going to have to check them out now πŸ™‚ as soon as I’m done listening to Reanimation

  37. YourConscience on April 12, 2008 at 4:13 pm

    Props to MISSDEE… Haha. I’m such a brat – I was just going to let people keep right on believing that Mike saw a show on Broadway. “Weird… I thought Broadway showcased musicals… I didn’t know they had metal bands play shows there…” =P But I suppose the cat’s out of the bag now. Haha. =)

  38. Jaclyn on April 12, 2008 at 4:02 pm

    Cool song! Thanx a lot! Lucky you having a great time )))

  39. lp_fm_fan on April 12, 2008 at 3:22 pm

    SONIA! what are you doing??

    tsk tsk, haha.

  40. Avi on April 12, 2008 at 3:15 pm

    oh lol. I’m sorry XD

    I feel so embarassed now XXDDD

  41. AS_21 on April 12, 2008 at 3:15 pm

    I love the song… it’s inspiring πŸ˜‰ and they’re reaaaaallly amazing!!!!!!! Scars on Broadway… one of the best ( just like soad )


  42. MissDee on April 12, 2008 at 3:09 pm

    is it funny feeling to watch the show and not to play it?and one thing i need to say, i have a feeling that some people do not understand that Scars On Broadway is a name of the band

  43. So_S on April 12, 2008 at 3:08 pm

    no Mike, i dare you!!! read the posts in your clan!! :PP

  44. lp_fm_fan on April 12, 2008 at 2:41 pm

    awsomeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. πŸ˜›


    yeah yeah, don’t read it… >.>

    hehe. um, yeah, lol.


  45. Avi on April 12, 2008 at 2:40 pm

    oh, I wish I could see something on Broadway…

    and remember, DO NOT read posts in your Clan on LPUMB.

  46. MelMinerva on April 12, 2008 at 2:37 pm

    thx@KeineAhnung (cool german word btw) =)

    @Mike: This is shameful. SOB has no member called DARREN, I just know DARON Malakian. Shame on you! πŸ˜€

    Edit it or die πŸ˜›

    the song is great. I’ve heard it one teh homepage after the countdown was over. I love it

    and to the show, on youtube –> some really great records of the show, take look around

    to Mike: You bastard πŸ˜€ No IΒ΄m not jealously, no…….never………why should I…….because you saw them…….argh!”

    btw. Serj was in Germany on thursday, and spoke a bit about this projekt….

    and hopefully: Serj and SOB (not Styles…) are playing on the same festival on the same day —> SOAD reunion? I hope so! SOAD is such amazing πŸ˜€ Don’t kill me mike to support a band like this and not LP w/ this post πŸ˜‰

  51. LPbourdonfan on April 12, 2008 at 12:35 pm

    they sound pretty cool^^

  52. Vecel on April 12, 2008 at 12:19 pm

    sounds cool. this was new thing to me. i was thinking that serj was only person who make some solo album. So thanks to Big M

  53. Romeo4wheels on April 12, 2008 at 12:13 pm

    Maybe this is just for that guy. ; )

  54. Urban on April 12, 2008 at 12:11 pm

  56. Ann on April 12, 2008 at 12:06 pm
