    Neefer i feel you man. I live here too. I was mad hyped up to see him speak. Im hoping he didn’t know all that information. I really don’t think he would of posted it on his blog intentionally trying to be misleading. I went to that site, it was like 100 for a certain part and like 400 for another part. I was like thats crazy, that could buy my kid christmas presents. I would of loved to go. its a shame that we got excited for no reason.

  2. Neffer on September 15, 2008 at 7:28 pm

    Mike why didnt you tell us not everyone could go? Cuz I was going to go but you have to pay to be a member, and you have to be a member to go! Also when I was reading the registration thing it said
    “No one under the age of 18 will be admitted to the event. Absolutely no children, babies or strollers will be permitted. The Opening Party (conference registrants) is only open to individuals 21 years of age and older.”
    Awww MIKE!!! owell 😦 You and LP better have a show here in Vegas soon ok, please like REALLY REALLY SOON!!!!!
    hmm have fun in Vegas this weekend!!!

  3. ColorScheming on September 15, 2008 at 8:41 am

    i know you said early sunday morning, but do you have around what time. Because i have work too. So 😦 i need to know around what time.

    If you could please answer my questions that would be great and much appreciated!

    Also do you know whats going on with s.o.b record yet? When i talked to tak he wasnt sure of the release date. I can’t wait for it!

  4. ColorScheming on September 15, 2008 at 8:39 am


    I haven’t posted here in a while. So i thought i would check up and then i see this i can’t believe i almost missed it! I drove out to l.a to see your art show. Now your coming to my city and i almost missed it. That would of been shitty for me.

    But i do have a couple questions.
    1.Is anyone allowed to go? Or do you have to have your name before hand.

    2.Also, will you be signing certain things? Because when i went to your art show i brought the art deck from your old line, and i had to keep it in the front. Its okay because you signed the new one. But still i want it signed πŸ™‚

    3.One more thing, will we be able to take a picture with you?

  5. outlawserenade on September 14, 2008 at 12:38 pm

  9. YourConscience on September 13, 2008 at 9:11 am

    rolls eyes at self, then points to the LPMB The “Mmmk” thread in the Barracks (created by Anstice) explains a bit… If anyone else wants to know more, feel free to contact me ( because untrue to shallow belief, this is NOT just about a signature…

  10. YourConscience on September 13, 2008 at 9:01 am

    I know this has nothing to do with your blog – I’m sorry to post here, but I thought you should know about the super peachy morale over at the LPMB… Anyhow, in relation to your post, congrats on being asked to attend. I pobably would’ve tried to attend if my hubby wasn’t finally returning home (whee!). Hope you and the guys have fun in the studio and with whatever side projects that may arrise. Take care.

  11. Linkin_Betty on September 13, 2008 at 8:32 am

    hi πŸ™‚ do you know what happen this day? i think 13.9.1996… i think you do… so and i have a question: Do you think Tupac still alive or not? i don’t know… i want it so much but… but it’s so beautiful for this to be truth…
    Tupac Amaru Shakur FOREVER ❀

  12. Jaclyn on September 13, 2008 at 7:17 am

    Hey Mikey! Can’t wait to hear and see your speaking online! Your so good at making speeches and your voice’s hypnotyzing, i won’t wonder if you become a politician some day ;)) i hope ppl can trust you ❀ maybe your mission is to change the world…. have you read Bernard Werber? When i read The Revolution of the Ants, it reminded me Lp Project Revolution πŸ˜€

  13. Phoebolita on September 13, 2008 at 6:26 am

    Good stuff, hopefully someone will Youtube it or something. Like many have said, it’s crap to live elsewhere sometimes, we have to watch all the action online! Ha, ah well, it’s better than nothing.

    On a side note, Anstice is right. The LPMB has sadly gone to the dogs. Sure, it has some great people on there, but the ratio of those to the people f’ing it up is ridiculous. There aren’t really any mods to control the situation properly. There’s a hella lot of hating on there aswell; pointless flaming and shit. Ergo, the cool people on the board are leaving, and it’s a real shame. Let’s hope things pick up.

  14. Blaesbjerg on September 13, 2008 at 6:17 am

    Awesome to hear you stand up Mike :).. I hope that we can see it somehow.. Us people in europe have to keep contact with what is going in some way? huh? xb.. I think that this is really awesome, that you have to change to do this, you must be really happy πŸ™‚ Good luck!

  15. Berlin270608 on September 13, 2008 at 5:06 am

    Seriously, it is depressing to live in Germany. Sometimes it is pretty boring here, but at least LP came here this summer. Hope you guys come here again, I would love to see you again!

  16. I_B_Long on September 13, 2008 at 2:09 am

    cool shit. i hope someone records this. i’d love to hear what you have to say about this.

  17. Kalini on September 13, 2008 at 1:32 am

    One more message from me. I am from Bulgaria and you have never come to my country. You should include Bulgaria in your next LP European tour! Good luck on the conference and have a great time!

  18. LinkinSami on September 12, 2008 at 11:17 pm

    It’s official, you have now earned the title of “Blogger.” Hahahahah

  19. axrinekey on September 12, 2008 at 10:41 pm

    I dunno why but I can’t go into the link there 😦

    Anyways, good luck with your speech there! πŸ˜€

  20. Anstice on September 12, 2008 at 10:16 pm

    MR. MIKE. YOU my friend need to have a look at the people they’re appointing for your fucking MESSAGE BOARDS. Uhm? Hating on people much. Holy Jesus fuck. I’m so pissed off right now, you don’t even know. Way to ruin my birthday! πŸ™‚

  21. asianotter on September 12, 2008 at 8:50 pm

  25. soyuneik on September 12, 2008 at 3:44 pm

    I read this earlier and for some reason it annoyed me. It stayed in my head while the little accountants calculated what I could possibly be annoyed about. Turns out it was the word “keynote”, yea…. One word. I think the issue might have something to do with Business Administration in College, but I’m not positive. Maybe its triggering memories of all the horrid classes I had to take. lol, whatever it is, have fun. Mr Biz

  26. lucky_cat on September 12, 2008 at 2:41 pm

    IΒ΄m speechless. you are entering the next higher level, I guess … I think we all should come to this event but probably the most of us arenΒ΄t able to (including me). As the others here asked: Is there any chance to hear what you will be speaking about ? For me as a webdesigner this would be VERY interesting.

  27. nikkiann0100 on September 12, 2008 at 2:15 pm

    Ok. I will see you there. If you have an approx time, that would be awesome.

  28. mike_n_LP_4ever on September 12, 2008 at 2:09 pm

    AAHHHH!!!!! you always go to places i cant go to. fine then i’ll just have to wait……. OMG please come do a lil signin in south florida west palm beach,miami, etc. but not opalonca cause you might get shot lol no offense just warnin you.=P but come do a signin thing down in south FL like you (LP) used to do when you first became LP or do a contest or something. anyways, have a great time in LV k peez homiez….

  29. Anstice on September 12, 2008 at 1:19 pm

    AAAHAHAHA! What a NERD. Just kidding. No, but seriously, that would be awesome to go and listen to. What exactly is it that everyone’s going to be talking about?? I attended a conference about Facebook and Myspace a few months back. Anything like what that was??

  30. Curiosa on September 12, 2008 at 12:53 pm

    ha ha Hey Mike, I was just reading that in a recent survey LA residents were ranked last in the friendliest people & most intelligent people category. Here’s the link to the article in case you want to read it. :)~

  31. miKer0cks on September 12, 2008 at 12:26 pm

    It should be a blast Mike. See you on the podium and hopefully before…

    O tanoshimi da ne πŸ˜‰ A pat on the back to your little bro for the translations.

  33. Kalini on September 12, 2008 at 11:32 am

    You should put a video on your web site for your fans outside the US. It will be very interesting to hear your speech. It’s not so difficult to learn 6 languages, if you have a talent for it. I have studied 5 foreign languages, because I liked it. I saw the list of the speakers, smart people from different countries, having a different experience and know-how! It will be a great event!!! And Mike you’ll be there! I am sure you’ll prepare a special speech! So, don’t forget to put a video on the web site! Thanx!

  34. antje on September 12, 2008 at 11:28 am

    Oh yes, how I said to a friend yesterday…. I have to immigrate in the US. So I have a chance to meet you…. πŸ™‚
    Wish you a good time at the conference… Take care

  35. Curiosa on September 12, 2008 at 11:23 am

    ha ha I just had accounting ask me questions about blogging & since you’re the “expert” I guess I should have reffered her to you. :)~

  36. cuz on September 12, 2008 at 11:08 am

    i heard about that yesterday and was soo impressed and happy πŸ™‚ you’re one of the best person for such conference. would love to come and say hello but since i live in Poland… 😦 US residents are sooo lucky… is it going to be recorded or something? i’d really love to hear what you’ll be talking about. this is incredible how talented you are… you can do so many different things and you do them all great! much love πŸ™‚ hope you’ll be having very good time at the conference πŸ™‚

  37. So_S on September 12, 2008 at 11:02 am

    you’re such a dork Mike! πŸ˜›

    and hoy crap, 6 languages??i barely remember any French…

  38. Smarky on September 12, 2008 at 11:00 am

    You should post like the slides or notes of your speech here for all to read! =P

  39. Smarky on September 12, 2008 at 10:58 am

  40. Curiosa on September 12, 2008 at 10:50 am

    btw: you’re a bit behind in announcing this. :)~ lol

  41. Curiosa on September 12, 2008 at 10:49 am

    Wow, I’lm impressed with the guy. If I ever have kids, I’m going to make them learn to speak more than 2 different languages. Seriously dude, I think it’s great that they asked you to speak & who better to ask than you. You definitely have the credintials for it. :)~ lol I would love to go but unfortunately I already have family commitments that weekend. After all a girl turns quince only once. Good luck & please take notes for me & share. :)~ lol Have a good weekend. πŸ™‚

  42. yohannaaaa on September 12, 2008 at 10:30 am
