  8. alinushuleee on June 14, 2008 at 12:28 pm

  9. asianotter on June 13, 2008 at 3:27 pm

    i knew you were going to own the new iphone! . . . the real question, for me, is what custom paint job are you planning on rockin’ on it?!

  10. Curiosa on June 13, 2008 at 1:41 pm

    lol Shinoda, I think you are 1 of those “i gotta have it” techies. lol My friend has an iPhone & he was so proud of it showing it off & I just looked at it & said “it’s ok”. :)~ lol I was partly joking w/him & giving him a hard time. lol For some odd reason I’m more impressed w/the iTouch than the iPhone. Maybe it’s cause I hate talking on the phone & I cringe everytime I hear it ring. lol

  11. schwarzkirsche on June 13, 2008 at 12:40 pm

    oh no…. o my god… i think appla is really god but… mike….pls tell me u are not one of these “oh i have to have this new technology as son as possible and already on yesterdeay”… -.-

    yeah, this phone is great^^ i want to have your old ^^
    have a question: do you make the youtube-channel LPTV?
    hope you’ll have much fun with the guys…

  13. atacadores on June 13, 2008 at 11:52 am

    Mike if you were portuguese i’ll understand your enthusiasm….
    otherwise…..
    but it looks nice!!
    If the memory space were bigger i will buy one to myself….

  14. MusicalMorphine on June 13, 2008 at 8:29 am

    Oh lord, is there actually any point in buying technology these days? Because as soon as you get enough money to buy something, the next one has come out. I thought the iPhone had enough. Iโ€™ll just be sticking with my phone that makes calls, sends texts and takes (crappy) pictures because Iโ€™m poor haha.

  15. Tiberias on June 13, 2008 at 7:59 am

    Sighing Oh who can’t understand you Mike! I’m addicted to high tech too!

  16. ms_shock on June 13, 2008 at 2:21 am

    But I don’t like touchscreen…… It isn’t comfortable for me๐Ÿ˜ฆ My dad said that my sister wants the same. EEK….

  17. ms_shock on June 13, 2008 at 2:19 am

    “Mike buy me one just because I post on your blog.” And ME TOO!!!๐Ÿ˜„

  18. WTF on June 12, 2008 at 9:43 pm

    Mike buy me one just because I post on your blog.

    Imagine being at Starbucks or doing 80mph on the highway and your phone/internet going off because Mike was stuck in a hotel room somewhere, bored and being a blog-whore..Instead of rushing home to read it, you can read it anywhere!

    (sarcasm/joking:)

  19. AlternatyvePhysicist on June 12, 2008 at 9:35 pm

    sorry, but apple is sucks ass.

  20. Ezza on June 12, 2008 at 8:05 pm

  21. plaaplaa on June 12, 2008 at 3:01 pm

  22. Alexandra on June 12, 2008 at 2:29 pm

  26. rockermeg on June 12, 2008 at 12:31 pm

  27. nikkiann0100 on June 12, 2008 at 11:54 am

    I am excited about the new iphone as well. Hopefully it will be better. :0 Are you going to sell your old one? It would be cool to have a phone with your design on it. I really wish I could go to your art show though. Too bad you cant have shows places other than LA. I really admire your work. I am sure it will be a lot of fun.

  28. LP_Fan on June 12, 2008 at 11:18 am

    What, you want to by a new one? O.O But the one you have now is soooooo cool !!

  35. Ilo on June 12, 2008 at 8:10 am

    You like the new i phone? Iยดve read about it in a magazine and they said it doesnยดt work as good as it should……..but itยดs really looking nice!! ;-))

    Ilo

  36. msgirl on June 12, 2008 at 7:22 am

    kiki…..so nice i think…..: ) have a nice time with ur new i phone….๐Ÿ™‚ hey……so u r old i phone is mine now? kiki…..:)

  37. rockgecko on June 12, 2008 at 7:02 am

    It looks like a pretty awesome phone, but to be honest the first iPhone that came out was pretty crap. Like my friend bought one and it died on her like… Three days after she got it. Mind you she did throw it against a wall.. BUT HER OTHER PHONES SURVIVED THE WALL THROWING FOR A YEAR! And she only threw it against the wall because the bloody screen froze on her. So yeah.. Looks good but I highly doubt it’s gunna actually WORK.

  38. Sammy on June 12, 2008 at 7:01 am

    hey the new iphone is awesome i’m going to buy it and the best is it’s better and not so expenisive than the version before … your art is amazing !!!

  39. punkimuffin on June 12, 2008 at 6:32 am

    it’s my b-day๐Ÿ™‚

  40. sandra on June 12, 2008 at 5:49 am

    gosh… i really don’t get all the fuzz about this phone… runsandhides
    but well, if it gives you so much joy, mike… fine…๐Ÿ˜›๐Ÿ˜‰
    i rather spend my money on other things… like concert tix to a lp show or something…๐Ÿ˜‰
    have a good one – and see you soon in duesseldorf!

  41. ilze29 on June 12, 2008 at 5:36 am

    Hi there! A huuuge thanks for the great show in Riga, Latvia! !! Thanks for visiting us finallllyy!!๐Ÿ™‚ I just love your positivity on stage! Keep on going and all the best from Latvia! Really hope to see you again some day…๐Ÿ™‚ MUSIC FOR RELIEF is something really really cool! Thanks for it to all of you!!!

  42. NoFace on June 12, 2008 at 5:08 am

    gosh, i hate rich kids.

  43. fragbaitelite on June 12, 2008 at 5:08 am

    @ Yun:
    He got his iphone colored by a company called colorware.

    @ Mike:

    Don’t know if you read all of these comments, but I’ve been looking for some way to get in touch with you and don’t know any other way so I thought I’d give it a shot. I really want to customize my iphone similar to yours but wouldn’t dream of using your art without your permission. If there is any way I can get your permission that would be fantastic..

  44. shinoda_me on June 12, 2008 at 3:29 am

    so THIS is what i saw in magazines!!!!!!! okay, now can i have YOUR iphone?๐Ÿ˜€

  45. AmyLynette_91 on June 12, 2008 at 3:17 am

    hahah im sure ur getting that i phone!

  46. yun on June 12, 2008 at 3:04 am

    But you already got that cool red one persolanized by apple! Personally I don’t like this new one and, a phone does not have to surf the web: they already inveted computers and wi-fi. By the way, your art show is reeeally more exciting than this. Pleeeease let us from europe buy the paintingssss T__T Pleeease.

  47. Xenith on June 12, 2008 at 3:01 am

    lol way ahead of you on the preorder Mike…

    Apparently its going to be free in the UK on selected tariffs. Now to just find a way of cancelling my 18 month contract one year ahead hmmmmmm.

  48. The_Hebrew_Hummer on June 12, 2008 at 2:34 am

    lol IPHONE with 3G network is amazing.. now i gotta save up money but we got it for months in israel .. but still what bad in n95 lol?

  49. Wong74 on June 12, 2008 at 2:21 am

    July 11th also equals my birthday! Shame i couldn’t suddenly win a comp to go over and see your art show being the massive fan i am…(hint much?)

  50. Mickey on June 12, 2008 at 2:03 am

    Lol, you have iPhone issues, man. I love how geeky you are, it’s cute.

  51. Noe_Kenji on June 12, 2008 at 1:49 am

    ehehehehehehe i would prefered to attend 15 minutes your artsow than get 100 phones like this one!!!!!please dont compare art and phones!!!!! art is the best thing ever!!! your art the besssst!!!

    so…if you buy this phone…what will you do with your last phone painted designed by you???? i want iiiiiit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  52. Yuki on June 12, 2008 at 1:32 am

    so..if ure going to buy that new one…can i have ur ‘old’ one??? id love to have an iphone..id tell nobody that u gave it to me:) or..could i send u my phone so that u can draw on it? that would be sooo cool:D i love ur art!

  53. soyuneik on June 12, 2008 at 1:32 am

    I made a mental note to add some geek points to your score later on ;c)
    As I’m typing this I’m preparing for my A+ Certification, When I’m finished I ‘ll become the ultimate cool geek hybrid.
    I like pretty shiny objects, but they just haven’t sold me on the iphone yet. We will see.

  54. skindesbous on June 12, 2008 at 12:46 am

    Mike… Do you compare this to your art show? Please, your art show it’s… the most exciting thing… EVER ๐Ÿ™‚

  55. navee on June 12, 2008 at 12:02 am

    Mike you got iPhone problems haha by the way your red iPhone is really cool what you gonna do with this one?

  56. Blaesbjerg on June 12, 2008 at 12:00 am

    AND You are definitely not the only one who are for you to post something..
    Aren’t you guys in europe right now? How can you have time for touring AND your artshow?๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    By the way, it’s REALLY awesome to hear your oppinion about No roads left! I can understand it takes much of your voice, since you aren’t quite the singer-type, even though is sound great when you sing.. ( If that makes sence?)..
    – I can’t even affort a normal Ipod, bur sure the Iphone looks great๐Ÿ™‚..
    By the way, what was it that was so fun about the show in Spain?๐Ÿ˜€

  57. renny on June 11, 2008 at 11:32 pm

  58. linkinparc on June 11, 2008 at 11:15 pm

    3G iPhone??? whoooooo

    have you jailbreaken your iPhone? you should do it, so you can mod your Iphone…it will look awesome

  59. ArielCahen on June 11, 2008 at 10:54 pm

    Hey Mike!

    First of all I’d like to wish you a good luck with your new art exhibition and compliment you for being an amazing and super talented artist, whether it’s on music or paintings.

    I will place two youtube links here. Hope you get to watch.
    This one ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gP0rlLkzL0 ) is the video I made for LPU’s “Help Introduce LOATR”, and this one ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWD1aXTqN0 ) is a video with the ‘bloopers’ of the video I did.
    It’s pretty funny. Haha.
    If you ever watch, I hope you like!

  60. Kostas on June 11, 2008 at 10:21 pm

  65. Blake on June 11, 2008 at 8:37 pm

    I thought this was goin to be the ad for your new kicks comin out haha, you should film a badass commercial for them though. I cant wait to get a pair there tight as hell

  66. Fishgoingwest on June 11, 2008 at 8:28 pm

    Oh No!
    I’ve just bought my iphone for 2 months,it’s terrible to heard that there will be a new iphone next month.
    Oh,my poor wallet

  67. PinkWater3 on June 11, 2008 at 8:22 pm

    Do you get paid by apple for the advertising? Free iphone for yaaa

  68. AmanDUH on June 11, 2008 at 8:10 pm

  69. M4LL0RY on June 11, 2008 at 7:48 pm

    I’m happy with my Ipod…and I’m happy with my phone.๐Ÿ™‚

  70. LPFreak1286 on June 11, 2008 at 7:40 pm

    Yea that would be great man. I was excited to but then I learned that we don’t have the 3G Network here in Roanoke VA, or anywhere close for that matter. It also cost $10 more to have it. So I’ll just have to stick with my old school iPhone.๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  71. zimminator on June 11, 2008 at 7:21 pm

    HEY!! you know what would be really cool…is if u go get that and you give me your old one….with that awesome pic on the back. lol only in my dreams๐Ÿ™‚

  72. beamer87 on June 11, 2008 at 7:13 pm

    There you go Mike, I am in kind of a pickel with Jully 11th though. Not only do I plan to get the iPhone 3G, but it is Free Slurpie day at 7-Eleven nationwide, it’s a very tough decision as to what line I am going to be standing in…hahahaha.

  73. LPROCKS on June 11, 2008 at 7:10 pm

    Well Mike, I guess you are the only who can afford a “new” iphone, having already payed $$$ for the old one, I am stuck with it, but I love it, you should put your red iphone on Ebay – profits for music for relief!

  74. mdky on June 11, 2008 at 7:10 pm

    Same here in Japan! If I were in L.A, I would grab new iPhone and go to your art show on July 11th!!

  75. Mireya on June 11, 2008 at 6:18 pm

    I can’t wait to get my IPone…

  76. YourConscience on June 11, 2008 at 6:09 pm

    Psh! I thought it would’ve been something good. =P If you’re going to share something about cell phones, make it this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gB6vS3KPOTk Haha. =)

  77. ManBearPig on June 11, 2008 at 5:38 pm

    Something quite applicable to your news of the new iPhone: http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/2b6dc10edf ๐Ÿ™‚

  78. ShadowerLiltani on June 11, 2008 at 5:35 pm

    I think I may be the only woman in the world that gets just as hot over new gadgets as all the men on this planet. So, like anyways, hopefully, they’ve worked out all the glitches. (I’ve noticed a Mac commercial recently that dissed windows Vista for being glitchy, which, Vista is, but, I have a feeling iPods/Macs are getting a little competitive there) Are you gonna decorate your new iphone like you did the last one? That was a really hot design, too. If you do, you should post up pictures cause you know we all wanna see ^ ___ ^ w00t.

  79. KATHYxx on June 11, 2008 at 5:34 pm

    Horaay.. an iPhone.

    Something I’ll never need.

  80. Loukkid on June 11, 2008 at 5:28 pm

    i’m very excited too ๐Ÿ™‚ but i don’t have art show

    i will get marry it make me very excited and nervous (i’m stay in Thailand )

    you get married how do you feel ๐Ÿ™‚

  81. lp_fm_fan on June 11, 2008 at 5:15 pm

    Oh gee. If I had a different phone company then MAYBE. Also, if I had money.

    Hey Mike, why do you like the iPhone? Like what do you use it for? and what makes it so special that you’re advertising it to us? A simple BEACUSE IT’S AN iPHONE isn’t gonna do.๐Ÿ˜›

  82. rubyred82 on June 11, 2008 at 5:14 pm

    LOL thanks for posting that analog, the Steve Jobs line was the best part.

  83. Fanlinkinpark02 on June 11, 2008 at 5:12 pm

    haha, you’ll can draw your new art on it, as the last one, it’s more pretty like that

    (it’s my birthday 2 days early too =D so we don’t care ^^)

  84. gae4ka on June 11, 2008 at 5:05 pm

    but i wanna comment about June 11th! thank you very much for amazing show in Latvia! hope that you like it and come back to us again and again!

  85. CherryRed on June 11, 2008 at 4:50 pm

    Your art is better! tehee! I feel bad for everyone that paid 400-600 bucks for the 1st generation one! Always wait till the 3rd generation with Apple.

    So will you be switching over your custom made iphone case you showed us before to your new Iphone? You should make a new one for the new phone! maybe with your new art that you willbe showing that day. That would look cool!

  86. analoggirl on June 11, 2008 at 4:47 pm

    RubyRed, it’ll be a birthday you won’t forget. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Because I’m a bastard, I thought I’d share this: http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y280/analoggirl1/iProduct.gif (No offense to anyone who loves Apple products!)

  87. MissLyss on June 11, 2008 at 4:44 pm

    That’s a Hottt Phone๐Ÿ™‚ But your art will be Hotter Mike๐Ÿ™‚

  88. teresamff on June 11, 2008 at 4:44 pm

    you’ll be dreaming with this new iPhone, won’t you??? :p

  89. STINGER_LP on June 11, 2008 at 4:37 pm

    no, it’s not tomorrow, it’s at “july 11thโ€ฆ”๐Ÿ˜‰
    Mike, you’re might be the biggest iPhone fan among all musicians =))))

  90. Xavi_cardenas on June 11, 2008 at 4:29 pm

    wow! tomorrow is the art show… good luck in that๐Ÿ™‚
    darn it… i’ve got a test tomorrow, why am i even writing this?!?!?
    mike you will have all the fault if I fail … lol

  91. rubyred82 on June 11, 2008 at 4:25 pm

    Ha I’m with analoggirl๐Ÿ™‚ and because July 11th is two days before my birthday. Woot for spending my bday with LP!

  92. lynndarwinharris on June 11, 2008 at 4:25 pm

    Not too excited about the phone. More excited about your art!!! The internet is as high tech as I get. When I accidently ran over my cell phone (it fell out of the car and I backed over it), I didn’t shed a tear. I thought oh well. It has been 2 years and I still have not gotten another cell phone. My friends finally gave up. They just email me now. I know it’s sad. Still I’m more excited about your art!!

  93. ninguem on June 11, 2008 at 4:24 pm

    ohhh i want one iphone =/

  94. Ann on June 11, 2008 at 4:21 pm

    wow! that cell phone might me great, but i prefer your paintings!๐Ÿ˜€
    i went to your show in madrid, it was great, i bit short๐Ÿ˜€
    . unfortunatly i wasnt among the crowd to sing with you a place for my head but a friend of mine told me hghe kissed your hand!! O.O kjajajaja.
    love!.
    Ann

  95. Pei on June 11, 2008 at 4:13 pm

    yeap…am waiting for that…the phone…and ur art of cos….am so eager for the decks!

  96. analoggirl on June 11, 2008 at 4:05 pm

    Oh! I’m looking forward to July 11th because it’s the day before Edgefest. Don’t worry, you’ve still got plenty of time to nail down that collaboration with STP. haha

  97. analoggirl on June 11, 2008 at 4:01 pm

    I just posted a comment about the wall between advertising and editorial (in response to your Rupert Murdoch post), and low and behold, here you are talking about iPhones. Is Apple a sponsor? ๐Ÿ˜‰ haha – just giving you a hard time. I liked how you tricked out your old/current iPhone – I wonder what you’ll do with the new one.

    I would only buy an iPhone (if I ever had that sort of money) for its interface, otherwise there are sooo many other better and cheaper phones (even the 3G version which apprently still doesn’t reach full 3G).

    “half price” still doesn’t mean anything, you still have to pay some ricidulous fee each month, its just not worth it.

    Looking forward to seeing some more of your art though Mike.
