in response to the W.O.W. art post…

wowza. that’s just amazing. i wish i had skills like that… makes me jealous of people who can paint realisticly. and about “lost in translation”… you might appreciate this mike…

MIKE SAYS: “tasty lighter is not drive,” ha! incredibly, i think i’ve seen more designs like this than i’d care to admit in japan and korea. my brother once saw a sign in the subway in japan that was meant to tell people not to sit in a certain area, but instead said “please, no shitting here”

I have a really important question, this is really important, Mike. A Korean artist named “Nancy lang” (or rang? I don’t know) insists that she created the album art of ‘Reanimation’. I don’t know whether she used alias or used her real name, anyway she is a Korean female pop artist. She insists that she was requested to participate in the cover art of ‘Reanimation’ by Warner Bros., and she created the cover art. Is that true? Then howcome there is no name of her in the album credits? Though I don’t believe her, I need to know is this true.
She is using likinpark’s name for her fame. Please tell me is that true Mike? Was the cover art of ‘Reanimation’ created by this Korean artist?

MIKE SAYS: not true…i did the art. i also basically do not post anywhere online except here and, and i don’t send fans direct emails, so if you’re heard otherwise, you are being deceived…

Or Brad with his Lvl. 5 Headphones of Silence…I heard those are rare and hard to come by

MIKE SAYS: hilarious!!!

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. :)~

MIKE SAYS: uh thatz like uh totally not troo, like i no a lots of peoples for who they are really cool so if you dont like it the nFUCK OFF!


oh yeah, check out this amazing art chester and i did. not exactly art show material, but…

  8. max_payn on September 16, 2008 at 2:48 am

    thankx Mike, How nice of you answering my question directly. i never dreamed of really getting answer from you…. anyway, I’m sorry for bothering you with that kind of question… I think she is just some little fraud, best thing is to ignore her. Forget about this small mess I brought up, Sorry man. Anyway I am happy your exhibition seems done well, I hope fourth album come out soon. Love you man, you are awesome and your artwork rules!

  9. axrinekey on September 15, 2008 at 11:52 pm

    The last comment is utterly funny!

    Oh, and the woman that said she’s the one that made “reanimation” was another funny statement too! πŸ˜›

  10. katie_parks17 on September 15, 2008 at 9:51 pm


    Please adjust the link to the art…ManBearPig deserves his props, too. πŸ™‚

  13. Brittney on September 15, 2008 at 1:09 pm

    “MIKE SAYS: uh thatz like uh totally not troo, like i no a lots of peoples for who they are really cool so if you dont like it the nFUCK OFF!” LOL and that’s why you win at life :]

  14. Mikeshi_Linkfort on September 15, 2008 at 12:12 pm

    So it is a pity that I did not know about that that Mike answers on comments.. It is very a pity…
    P.S. I have cluck under the reference{link} with a picture of Chester.. But unfortunately to me there was a message that a picture is removed: (

  15. Madlen on September 15, 2008 at 11:40 am

    heh the pic that’s been moved or deleted is the Canadian flag thing right?I’ve seen that already:DI wish my comments impressed you:DI should really come up with something good next time:DLOL it’s gonna be hard…:D

  16. nikkiann0100 on September 15, 2008 at 11:26 am

    I iked your last response. Thats funny. Wish I could see that image that you and chester did.

  17. Lvix on September 15, 2008 at 10:37 am

    i can’t see the art mike!

  18. Joanie_LP on September 15, 2008 at 9:05 am

    such an amazing art you did with chaz, Mike – photobucket-removed-pic art πŸ™‚ interesting πŸ˜€

  19. Curiosa on September 15, 2008 at 8:16 am

    BTW: I heard about the train wreck; such a terrible tragedy. My thoughts & prayers are with the families.

  20. Curiosa on September 15, 2008 at 7:37 am

    Mike, ha, made you look! :)~ or rather reread what you wrote. :)~
    I was actually going to post this after my first comment but I started having probs w/my commuter at home so I had to wait to do it this morning. lol I don’t know if Ryu would be considered LA but he seems like a really nice guy: even nicer than you :)~ so I know it’s not completely true.

  21. Curiosa on September 15, 2008 at 7:16 am

    @kimchee: Mentioning Hollywood & Paris does not help LA look good. lol Seriously though, my experience w/the areas around LA have been 50/50. I’ve met some really nice people & some really big stuck up jerks. & as much as I hate to say it, nationality sometimes comes into play. We discussed this on fmmb once with a friend of mine who lives in N. CA.

  22. daroker510 on September 15, 2008 at 4:32 am

  29. Hybr1d_7h3ory on September 14, 2008 at 9:19 pm


    I just saw that you responded to my comment on Brad’s lvl.5 headphones of Silence and that made my week!!! Why must you be sooo cool. I also was able to download the LP live from Kansas City yesterday, and I must say that show was badass and you guys were amazing, as always. Also if you get a chance to talk to Chester I have a vid on YouTube of him Singing “The Outsider” with Ashes Divide from the KC concert under the same username, Hybr1d_7h3ory, that I hope he will enjoy.

    Thanks again for being such a cool, down to earth person.


    ps. The pic link doesn’t work?!

  30. Doomguy13 on September 14, 2008 at 9:08 pm

    All I have to say is: Mike, why must you be so awesome?

  33. Keilah_136 on September 14, 2008 at 6:40 pm

  34. faiintx on September 14, 2008 at 6:34 pm

    hey mike =D im a huge fan of you and the band. i live in dallas and im 13 years old

    im doing a project in school where i can study an artist & their style, and then later, by march 2009, i have to paint an original painting that’s similar to the artist’s style.

    sooo, guess who my favorite artist is?

    YOU =D

  35. rubyred82 on September 14, 2008 at 5:26 pm

    As seen from another angle….

  36. ManBearPig on September 14, 2008 at 5:22 pm

    ButterflyVampire: Being the Canadian who brought him the flag, we really don’t mind. πŸ˜€

  37. Viry on September 14, 2008 at 4:34 pm

    you have to do this more often πŸ™‚ we wanna now what do you think of the comments.
    btw, nice photo πŸ™‚

  38. murry on September 14, 2008 at 4:21 pm

    Did you just hotlink Andrew’s photobucket? hahaha….

    The link is broken, but I know what you’re referring to, and it was adorable, btw.

    Also, I saw a sign at the county health department once that read: “DON’T SHAKE BABIES.” Just so you know… Don’t be shakin’ babies.

  39. Fanlinkinpark02 on September 14, 2008 at 4:21 pm

    The link of art chester doesn’t work =(

    How many demos did you record until now for the next album?

  40. lxlatinangelxl on September 14, 2008 at 4:10 pm

    I understand shinnizly …….i get confused too…..mike please…..answer that question……Is it Shinnizle or Shinizzle?

  41. Shinnizly on September 14, 2008 at 3:54 pm

    Hi Mike! There’s something I have been really curious about. I am a big fan of you and back in 2003 when I bought Meteora I read Shinnizle somewhere on the book. I loved the name and since I am a big fan of you I switched the E for a Y and now I use Shinnizly as my username. What really gets me confused is that if I search for Shinnizle on the internet it appears “Don’t you mean Shinizzle?” and some people refer to me as Shinizzly and not Shinnizly and when I see that name it’s always spelled Shinizzle although on Meteora’s book it’s Shinnizle. I know this is a really stupid question but please tell me! Is it Shinnizle or Shinizzle? πŸ™‚

  42. ButterflyVampire on September 14, 2008 at 3:41 pm

    LOL!!!!!!!! The Canadian flag!!!!? OMG!!! What did you do!!!????? Gasp! I hope you don’t have any angry Canadians getting mad at you. However my American side thinks it’s freakin funny. I love you guys. I’m putting that picture on my myspace page! πŸ™‚

  43. Curiosa on September 14, 2008 at 2:25 pm

    =:0 Mike was that an offer??? You’re cute & all but no thank you. :)~ lol
    Oh sure respond to that 1 & not about SOB . rolls eyes. but I’ve got to give it to you, it was a hilarious response. lol Take care. :)~

  44. cuz on September 14, 2008 at 1:42 pm

    you responses simply makes me happy, man πŸ™‚ a hug and big lollipop for you πŸ™‚ you should do it often, that’d be sooo nice πŸ˜€ much love from Poland πŸ™‚

  45. Mag_Shinizzle on September 14, 2008 at 1:04 pm

    Hey hey Mike, it’s been a little while since I last commented on here… just discovered an amazing pianist from South Korea, don’t know if he’s well-known or not, if you’ve already heard about him or not, so I thought I’d share πŸ™‚
    A friend of mine gave me that link, and when I heard him play the piano, I just stopped what I was doing and I listened… this guy is truly amazing… he’s called Yurima :
    Hope everything’s great for you boy ! πŸ˜‰

  46. huera713 on September 14, 2008 at 12:52 pm

    Mike..i was brother has autism..we are doing a walk for autism..October 14 at reliant stadium in Houston do you think you or the band could sponsor him?..if you : OR


  47. skindesbous on September 14, 2008 at 12:01 pm

    0.- Did you realize there’s a part of “In the end” lyrics on that shirt? 1.- Last night I dream on you. You were in “Where’d you go” video, and look soooo old (white hair, white clothes, you looked so happy). I don’t know what it means. 2.- The link for the pic doesn’t work (ok, I’ve just watched the pic on a coment hehe). 3.- “Please, no shitting here” LOL

  51. rockermeg on September 14, 2008 at 11:20 am

    Hahahaaa!!!Love the last comment Mike,you’re fucking brilliant!

    Oooh Mikey,what have you and Chester been up to?? “This image or video has been removed or deleted”

    Hehe,nah I know its nothing like that.Photobucket is really shite

    Thought you might be interested to know that my friends nicknamed me after you (-:

    They call me ‘Shino’ & I love it xD.I’m sorry if you’re freaked out by this but I’m not a maniac,trust me. You’re just a big inspiration to me musically and generally…And I never shut-up about you…hehe

    I think how you respond to our comments is just unbelievable. You don’t come across people like you every day Mike

    Article about the COCKBERG!!! and climate change being blamed for the Giant Ice Penis haha

  63. Anstice on September 14, 2008 at 9:37 am

    Hey, MANBEARPIG, I met them in Noblesville, too XD.

  65. ManBearPig on September 14, 2008 at 9:32 am

    That link to my PB doesn’t work, so here’s one that does:

    If someone knows how to make it into a real link…

  66. Anstice on September 14, 2008 at 9:28 am

    YourConscience, what? :gigglesnort: I always find the Courtesy Desk in Wal-Marts I’ve never been in by looking for the giant sign that says “Courtesy Desk.” If you can’t read, chances are you aren’t finding that.

  67. YourConscience on September 14, 2008 at 9:25 am

    Anstice, you make me smile… “If I can’t read, how am I going to find the Courtesy Desk?” =)

  68. Anstice on September 14, 2008 at 9:21 am

    The poor girl that was talking to me was so flustered. They had to transfer me to her dept. from the Courtesy Desk. She answered and was like, “Domestics?” I screamed in her ear, “JAMES IS THAHT YOO?!” She goes, “No? I’m Cassie.” She told me about their TV stands, what colors and kinds they had. I was like, “Is thahr a weighat leemit on thaht?” She was like, “It depends on the stand you get.” I was like, “Okay. Well, I gotz one more ques’chun for y’uns. I got sum trubble readin’. Will sumone help me get mah stuff? Cuz I can’ read n all.” AND SHE BELIEVED ME. She told me to go to the Courtesy Desk. I was thinking, “I can’t read. How am I going to find the Courtesy Desk?” It was good times.

  69. Simone on September 14, 2008 at 9:18 am

    Mike – the link to the picture doesn’t work…oh wait, others have already said bad. And ‘lol’ to the morons in LA… (Haha it’s funny because i’m an idiot).

  70. vivalavulva on September 14, 2008 at 9:17 am

    the link to andrew’s canadian beaver [or i assume that’s what you were linking to?] is broken.

    [..i won’t lie, i just wanted to say ‘andrew’s beaver’]

  71. Anstice on September 14, 2008 at 9:12 am

    YourConscience – OH MY GOD. HAHAHA. Wow, that’s sort of sad. :snorts loudly: HEY MIKE. I totally have to tell you about something that you talking like that reminded me of. If you ever get a chance, prank call the Wal-Mart’s in Evansville, Indiana (and this is a joke, people. Please don’t actually do it because I work there; and knowing my luck, I’ll answer the phone). But, I prank called Wal-Mart last week just for shits and giggles, and threw on this really ridiculous hick-accent. I was like, “D’YA’LL GOT ANY TEEVAY STAYANDS OVAR THAR?!”

  72. YourConscience on September 14, 2008 at 9:05 am

    Anstice – Ahw, hunay. Ah cumpleetly adore ya too. Ya sucha sweethart, gurl. Oh, an ah seen yer video, an theein ah saw theeis won…

  75. Anstice on September 14, 2008 at 8:59 am

    YourConscience – AHHAAHHA. Oh my God, Clare, I adore you. PS, I just saw the funniest commercial in the world. I saw that and laughed so hard. I love commercials.
