  15. skindesbous on October 8, 2008 at 2:09 am

    But VIRGA, think about us, we’re the most pigheaded fans in the world =D! never gonna give you up(8)

  16. Frerard on October 8, 2008 at 1:13 am

    omg, Rick! roflmao. this reminds me of his phenomenal appearance at SINGFest 08, his name popped up in between Panic! At The Disco and Lostprophets xD
    and i smell some Joe.

    edit: oh sorry, i forgot that the “!” is dead.
    so.. Panic At The Disco. there >.>

  17. soyuneik on October 8, 2008 at 1:12 am

    Wow, I expected a whole different voice. I think he’s the alien,
    lol your really killing them with the Secret Asian Man thing, I have a secret identity too.
    I’ll never tell! Muhahahahaha!

  18. Virga on October 8, 2008 at 12:37 am

    I don’t like EMA voting system, people who have nothing to do, can sit all day long and push just 2 bottoms, so their favorite artists have a lot of chance to win. Well I just hope that there are a lot of crazy lp fans who do the same:))

  19. maria on October 8, 2008 at 12:14 am

    Hey, Mike, who is that danmly popular guy secret asian man)?
    is Chester getting well? I hope that he will be ok soon. All Hardcore is concerned about Chester’s injuries. some even thought that he jumped from the stage as if he wanted to make the end of Faint more glorious. And what about your thoughts?

  20. NoFace on October 7, 2008 at 11:33 pm

    Secret Asian Man? Sound like cheap kungfu movie I have seen my whole life. Jesus Delson Christ, can’t you find some better name?

  21. msgirl on October 7, 2008 at 11:06 pm

  22. ffmuteki9 on October 7, 2008 at 10:08 pm

    Tours in Asia are really cancelled…
    Though we re disappointed, hope Chester’s injury could recover soon.
    hope we can see you guys no later than an year.

    And http://lptimes.com/news2008/oct/Mike_XtremeRadio.html

    at 02:35: It’s not just China either, with kind of China a..an..and.. you know uhmm..other areas in that region.

    That area is “Taiwan”~~!!! I’m sad that you couldnt speak out our country’s name (cry)
    at least you came to Taiwan with Fort Minor and Linkin Park, and recorded “We Made It” in Taipei…

    anyway, hope Chester get better soon!!!

  23. TEQUILA on October 7, 2008 at 9:51 pm

  27. motsy on October 7, 2008 at 5:48 pm

    rick astley gets my vote. although i’m dating myself, it brings back some good memories of high school. plus, the other acts won enough awards, rick deserves at least one!

  28. karolp on October 7, 2008 at 2:33 pm

    Achmed the dead terrorist: http://br.youtube.com/watch?v=9dsClG9fPs0 it’s really cool !! the legend is in portuguese but who understand english…

  29. karolp on October 7, 2008 at 2:30 pm

    oh.. I’ll vote !!:/ oh… who are the Secret Asian Man ? ¬¬ please mike, tell us !!

  30. psykobouliz on October 7, 2008 at 1:33 pm

    haha i didn’t expect to this!!! awesome! Secret asian man, hum maybe this is… mr hahn?? lol

  31. Hybr1d_7h3ory on October 7, 2008 at 1:10 pm

    I think you should cover this on your next tour…Or have Asterly on PR. In response to the persons comment below me talking about Tokyo Hotel, LP was in the same nomination group with them and Paramore, and LP came out with the won. I have faith in humanities’ choice in good music.

    Keep up the good work Mike and Secret Asian Man

  32. rockermeg on October 7, 2008 at 1:01 pm

    huh?
    xxx

  33. keineAhnung on October 7, 2008 at 12:21 pm

    unfortunately he won’t stand a chance!😦 …he’s nominated in the same category as tokio hotel, who have like millions of little 14-year-old fan girlies who vote 24/7…honestly, no joking…saw some news about them when they were going to play in dortmund, germany in january…a lot of their fans were camping outside the venue weeks (!!!!) before the concert…well, I have seen a lot of other crazy sh_t about their fans too…those kids are CRAZY, boy band groupies are NOTHING compared to them!!!…I really even doubt lp will stand a chance against them as best headliner -.-

  34. Curiosa on October 7, 2008 at 11:53 am

    ha ha pure magic?? More like “ancient magic”. :)~ j/k dude So how many women have you used those lines on?? Don’t lie. :)~

    Hey have you checked out the new Adobe CS4 versions? Didn’t have time to mention it last week.

    Kalini: for some odd reason mentioning Mike’s romantic side made me think of the song “Wicked Games” by Chris IsaacO_o lol

  35. Presidenten on October 7, 2008 at 11:51 am

    Hey Mike! Im doing a project in school, a really big one. The project is going to be a fundraising concert, where bands, dancers and other amazing people are going to perform. the cause that we are trying to make people aware of is the situation of the polar bears and their biome, antarctica. I was thinking that it would be totally cool to make a short video with polarbears and some music and facts to show during the concert. The real question was if it´d be impossible to get to use a LP song in that video, becuase I have a pretty clear vision of how i want it, and Krwlng would be the ultimate song.

    You can email me at: cahov001@edu.stockholm.se

    Thankyou🙂

  36. Joanie_LP on October 7, 2008 at 11:38 am

  37. zimminator on October 7, 2008 at 11:22 am

    dude thats pretty sweet! but mike, i read these comments, saying chesters back is pretty bad. is it really that bad? fill us in on that mike, what happened to him? what did he do?

  38. Kalini on October 7, 2008 at 11:20 am

    Ha-ha! I’ve already voted at the MTV EMA’s, because of your 2 nominations, but I’ve also chose my favourites for the rest of the categories and Mr. Astley was one of them. Honestley, U2 deserves this award, too. As you say “Never Gonna Give You Up” is “pure magic”. Hey Mike, you started showing your romantic side, you really enjoy pop love songs, don’t you?

  45. ffmuteki9 on October 7, 2008 at 10:40 am

    Mike!!There’s a rumor goes that because of the severe hurt on Chester’s back, you guys decided to cancel/postone the shows in China!!?? is that real??

    then how about the show in Taiwan??!

    Please give us a clear answer~~!!

    Wish Chester get better soon.!!!

  46. Coach_K on October 7, 2008 at 10:39 am

    Haha, that’s funny.
