    this is my most magnificent piece of dubbed disney i have ever seen.

    yeah, yeah.
    peace and all that shit.

    -Emily

    p.s that video must have taken him FOREVERRRRRR..
    but being the fact that he was able to create that out of a few hours of recording himself pounding on some instruments is pretty darn amazing(:
    kids got some awesome ideas.

  23. NessyNezz on April 27, 2008 at 12:32 pm

All three of you look like the height of cool in those pics(especially the last one) and the piano shot is so…uh…”depeche mode” as Chester would say XD…uh I can’t think how to describe it originally so I’ll just say: beautiful,artistic,atmospheric,original,creative,emotional…you get the point😉 although somebody should create a word that means all 6…”SHINODA”!!! Yeeeaahh!!! =D Jokez🙂

    Meg x

  65. Shinizzle3 on April 26, 2008 at 6:27 am

    wuhhuuu!! this is great
    btw it must be sooo … amazing to be american…or english… i mean you understand everything!!! i may understand everything what is written in english and almost everything what you say [or sing of course^^] but in some interviews or something like that or when you speek very fast i have my problems…
    man i really wish i was american, than my chances to meet you also were much bigger!!!
    sometimes i really feel like a bad fan because i’m not al LPU [i’m not allowed to–>sucks] and so on, but i really love you sooooooo much… so i only wanted to get this straight!!

    you’re probably the ONLY artist who’s works appeal to me all the fucking time … not because your Mike Shinoda from Linkin Park .. you give so much to each bit you do that its nothing less than a master-piece EVER! oh and did i tell you that you have the MOST AMAZING LAUGH ever?😀 i love it when you go HAHA in any song/video .. and its not like the annoying laughs that most hip-hop artists have .. (No, i dont like Jay-z’s laugh)

WOOOah man, Eminem is a real rapper, for me one of the best. But now, everything has changed…😦 And Mike, You are the best of our time, I’m sure in the next years , we really will hear about you as rapper and producer.

  77. Blaesbjerg on April 26, 2008 at 2:23 am

  80. Lobby on April 26, 2008 at 2:05 am

    Hell yeah, thats Lasse Gjertsen. From Norway, he is a genius, truly. He has done the same with beatbox.
    I think you can find it in Youtube, just search for “Lasse Gjertsen – Hyperactive”

    Anyway, this video rocks, thanks for the share Mike! You’re the man, thanks for coming to Latvia, tho I don’t live there, It’s near, hopefully I’ll be there! =)

  81. Mickey on April 26, 2008 at 1:37 am

    Hey Mike. Cool photos from the video. Can’t wait to see it….tuesday, is it?

  82. soyuneik on April 26, 2008 at 1:04 am

    Dope. The coincidence in that is everyones jokes about how someone takes over my body when I play keys. I haven’t been taught much more than where C is tho.

  83. YourConscience on April 26, 2008 at 12:54 am

    P.S. You all should check out his “beatboxing” video while you’re over there… It freakin’ cracked me up! He looks kind of crazy, but it’s so fun… =D

  84. JadeGirl on April 26, 2008 at 12:53 am

    The stills are definetely super cool.
    My conclution the video must be extra special.

  85. Anstice on April 26, 2008 at 12:05 am

    lmfao. These music vids never cease to amaze me. I snorted when he dropped the drumstick at the beginning. It IS genius, BY THE WAY. Oh, and took your advice and looked at the pics. Mike+Piano=Hearts.

  86. Justeen on April 25, 2008 at 11:56 pm

    Hi Mike) I’ve checked them right now) It’s a mastespiece) That guitar with a boy painted on it)))))) And the main photo (WE made it)!!!!!! You’re an impressionist, really)))))))))) And the video is really funny and sweet) That guy is playing with such a joy) And the way he’s playing the piano is rather interesting) I like when someone is playing the piano))))))))))) Especially when I’ve heard the piano version of In the End and Lying from you, I got impressed) Their so sincere. I think that Shakespeare’s sonnet could have expressed my opinion more lightly)have a nice day)
