  4. Curiosa on June 6, 2008 at 1:56 pm

    =:0 You went to the Louvre & shopping & you didn’t even invite me?? =:0 Mike how could u?? lol
    Glad you’re having fun over there. Hey who’s the artist for the painting w/the skull? Hmm…either u need a wide angle lens or u were in a bad spot to take the pic. :)~ Remember I mentioned the pic of a skull that i took. I put it up on myspace & since u enjoy games I’ll let you try to find my myspace. :)~ Have a good weekend. πŸ™‚

  14. Fanlinkinpark02 on June 5, 2008 at 11:40 am

    why you did not warn us for your arrival in Paris
    I wanted to see you

    That makes a few years that I am not gone back to the Louvre
    but i can go when I want, I take 20min by train to go there
    so when you come back πŸ˜‰ with a show because you come in Europe, make many show without France 😦

    see you, kiss

  37. lp_stef on June 5, 2008 at 12:20 am

    lol seeing the pyramid of the louvre makes me think about the dvd frat party where you stand in front of it and brad says “Mike comes to Europe in the coldest winter of the decade…Well, I’m predicting…Without a coat” and you just answer “without a coat!!” but have this smile like “damn! it’s f*cking cold!” LMAO i love this dvd xD and there you have RED HAIR!!! and it looks sooo great!! i really miss those coloured hair

  38. RomanaW on June 4, 2008 at 11:45 pm

As I hope you looked at my Bleed it out cover i hope.haha it was whack but hey. i like your rhymes,and if you haven’t. just look up the name RibBlake on youtube. You guys should do Don’t Stay as an opener again! just like RAR 04. It is just so hardcore and awesome has so much power behind it.

  49. LPNATY on June 4, 2008 at 8:28 pm

    and be honest. did you go to paris for the art or the romance? inquiring stalkers want to know.

  53. Tarna on June 4, 2008 at 7:47 pm

    Mike, are you a fan of mythology, the maiden in distrress Andromeda or Wtewael”s Persee’ secourant Androme’de? I think thier story is very interesting. Having fun in Paris? I’m still waiting to hear from Whitney! You should definetly have your own collection at Artoyz. It reminds me of you. I have a Tomodachi, Given as a gitft, don’t remember his name funny how I made it a he. Aimecube great street wear one of my favorite stops.

    Wow, the closest I’ve gotten to the Louvre was when I went on a field trip with my art class to the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, GA. There was a traveling exhibit from the Louvre. πŸ™‚

  64. Anstice on June 4, 2008 at 5:00 pm

    Fuck, lucky. I’ve been wanting to see that museum. Every since I read the Da Vinci Code -HUFFS-. The artwork is amazing, in any case. Didn’t even know you’d gone to Paris :). Have fun! -Jade

  65. Loukkid on June 4, 2008 at 4:53 pm

  72. AussiePrincess on June 4, 2008 at 4:17 pm

    Nice pictures…OMG YOU SAW RAGE? I tried to get tickets to see them at the Big Day Out…but the tickets sold in like 20 minutes.

    Hope you enjoyed yourself

  73. analoggirl on June 4, 2008 at 4:16 pm

    Just hanging in Paris, huh? And you just happened to take some pics of vanitas-inspired artwork? lol Hope you’re having fun. Also, I’m jealous that you got to take in a RATM show – how crazy is that? I wanted tickets to the Rock The Bells tour a few years ago, when RATM headlined. This year, the tour finally comes to Toronto, but no Rage. Oh well. At least I’ll be able to see ATCQ, De La Soul, Rakim, Nas, Mos Def, The Pharcyde and your boys Ghostface, Green Lantern and Black Violin. πŸ™‚

  74. Mark86 on June 4, 2008 at 4:14 pm

    ahah, you are obsessed by skulls. No picture of the Monna Lisa, but 2 pictures with skulls

  75. Rofy on June 4, 2008 at 4:12 pm

    nice pic miky .. i loved the third pic.. πŸ™‚ .. im happy that u enjoy your time… and hope that one of your art will put on louvre ..
    thanks again

    take care
