You suggestions for this site have been great. I’m sending Sparkart (our web design / hosting company) some stuff based on your ideas. Let’s see what they say. I’ll keep you all posted πŸ™‚


great idea Mike!! btw could you please re-consider or explain why Somewhere I Belong, Papercut, P.O.A, and Wake 2.0 has been left out on Road to Revolution.
Thank You
Veteran Fan m/

M: I posted about this on the message board, but it was a small, random post, so I’m not surprised you didn’t see it. CDs have limited space (74 min?), so all the audio wouldn’t fit. We decided to keep the DVD and CD consistent. The rest of the stuff will be made available to you, though…you’ll see!

Lol, yeah your blog already has RSS I actually subscribed to it but it didn’t give me the NEW news it gave me the old news, it was kinda slow, I dunno if it’s any better cuz I thought it’d be best just to visit your site everyday, lol.

M: Thanks guys, I obviously didn’t know it already existed. HA! For those of you who wanted to use that function but didn’t know the link, thanks to JNudda for posting it:

Mike, your blog already has an rss feed.

    Sorry been late on this one.

    I’d really love to have a nice official wallpaper section symbolizing linkin park and the cool artwork from Mike. Its so hard to get some good wallpapers off the internet for linkin park that are good quality, resolution, multi monitor etc.

    Another one would be to come back to the page you were browsing after you leave it to log in. Currently if you are reading a blog entry and want to post a comment, you log on and are taken to the the home page of So you have to trace back the post you were on. Kinda annoying πŸ˜‰

    ROCK ON!

    Hello!Mike!!! Thank you for holding such chance:)) Why doing “Somewhere I belong,papercut,P.O.A”come off by a site of the fan who has that or,I became the topic of conversation,so it was good! I wrote in a response of a Mike..Then…”In should have removed Numb/Encore, Jiggawhat/Faint ” there was writing in. I think the two song are an important song for LP,so I don’t think so.Also exert yourself now!!:)

  3. axrinekey on October 22, 2008 at 6:42 am

    Oh cool!
    rss feed. πŸ™‚

    Although I don’t really what it does, actually. :/

    Is it somekind of webpage that search for your blogs and stuff?

  4. numbrocker02 on October 21, 2008 at 4:46 pm

    Well I’ve commented everwhere else, but I need to ask you something, so I’ll do it here.

    There’s a rumor that this vid was made by you and Mark. Can you elaborate on this?

  5. KATHYxx on October 20, 2008 at 9:39 pm

  6. StrangeGirl1 on October 20, 2008 at 5:29 pm

    Hi Mike, is there any chance the LPU could get a suggestion box? =)

  7. Gemilla on October 19, 2008 at 5:32 pm

    Well, it seems to me a very good idea all … and especially what the top 5, why not a music player?, I mean, it’s top 5 is fine, but I do not think that can be replicated, or yes? I’m making a mess would be like imagining haha


  8. Hawaii_LP_fan on October 19, 2008 at 5:21 pm

    I hope your website blows up the internet world to the galaxy & beyond. πŸ™‚ Hah, all kidding aside, your blog site is like no other. Uniquely Shinoda style bypassing the regular sites. Your website offers the bloggers a lookie see in your world & the coolest thing that separates you from all those reg sites is that you listen & interact with your fans. You’ve grasped the magical piece. ROCKS!

  9. European on October 19, 2008 at 1:09 pm

    HI MIKE!

    I have question for you. When do you planning to come again to Europe? Straight after new studio CD relese? Are you going to visit some former eastern block countries? Maybe one or two shows in Baltic region (Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia)??? DID YOU REMEMBER?, SHOW AT LITHUANIA TOTALLY ROCKED!!!

    And I have second question. Are the 2008 Summer European shows going to release soon? If no, i’m going to cry :((((((((((((((((((

    Pls, pls, answer to my question!!!

  10. FCastro on October 19, 2008 at 9:27 am

    My suggestion is: you could enter more times in chats to talk with us man, ’cause not just me but lots of fans want to ask you about lots of things. And why Points isn’t in the dvd? the best song of the show to me… xD or Points will be some bonus track on dvd?

    please Mike, explain us and take off our doubts! Thanks

  11. rockermeg on October 19, 2008 at 8:22 am

    YEAH-I was just about to say how much it sucked that Points wasn’t on the DVD because you killed that Petrified verse at the beginning and nobody knew what you were doing! xD
    I’ll keep checking back to see then πŸ˜‰

  12. YuN_RoCks on October 19, 2008 at 5:55 am

    80 mins mikey, not 74! btw, the description under your works in the “art” section would be great! just to understand better what you wanted to show and express =] or everything funny related to that work, random notes about it, and so on.

  13. Daniel on October 19, 2008 at 5:21 am

    I understand that CDs have limit on the content , but would you guys put the whole show on the DVD just like “Live In Texas”. Also , we’re all expecting there are b-sides or new songs rather than live songs on LPU8 CD. Anyways , thanks for the updates and have a nice day! -Daniel from Hong Kong

  14. Stelios on October 19, 2008 at 2:43 am

    “The rest of the stuff will be made available to you, though…you’ll see!” oh mike, please tell me that you dont mean that the rest of the live songs will be on the lpu8 cd! no more live songs!

  15. Nintensity on October 19, 2008 at 1:32 am

    OH yes, try to incorporate quick links to certain blog posts. Archive your posts according to month, and have links that directly link to Quick tags. Its a wonder how much scrolling i need to go through just to search for a particular entry. WordPress, luckily, does all this for you. Check it out gangstarrr.

    PS: it wouldn’t hurt if your sign in form was present on your site, not LP’s site… and keep it to the top right of this website so users won;t have to scroll down and down and down the page just to get it.

  16. Nintensity on October 19, 2008 at 1:27 am

    Just want to let you know how much of an inpirational artist you are to me. your designs and concepts may not be artistically awesome compared to mr Simkins, however yours portray a much clearer message to your audience. Art, like websites, is about connecting to those who come and see it. It wouldn’t be good if a viewer didn’t understand what the art peice was trying to say. However, you definitely nail things. I’ve done a few projects myself that surround your artist talents. check me out


  17. Nintensity on October 19, 2008 at 1:22 am

    As a user, I am redirected to a website that I may be unfamiliar with, thus moving myself away from your website. It’s a ‘turnoff’ for users. I suggest that you integrate the website’s login into your homepage, so users know beforehand. Keep the login top-right for easy access
    Also, why have the “Sign In” message at the bottom of your website? It’s probably the last place users would want to see. After using the website, the layout seems a little bland. Tedious scrolling after scrolling

  18. Nintensity on October 19, 2008 at 1:21 am

    Your website/blog contains a particular design that I enjoy looking at every day. Navigation links are good, as its always shown whenever the user browses the website. If I were to make a comment, I would have to go to that particular post, click “read more” and click “comments” just to type in my message. As a user-centered design, users may have trouble finding this information as its nested from one link to another. You can put in a comments box after user clicks β€˜read more’. Why would you have a login at the Linkin Park official website?

  19. sweet_girl on October 18, 2008 at 9:09 pm

    Mike mmmmmmmm you’re so funny!!

  20. Linkinboss on October 18, 2008 at 7:34 pm

    I hope catch your atention with this post mike. it’s about the DVD again. i know, you want to keep the dvd same as the cd. but you have think if you release the (video?) in another way, you can’t see the show from beggining to the end?, so it’s like change the order of mtm, it looses some sense. anyway, we won’t want those tracks being released in audio in LPU 8.0 we already have those tracks from the DSP, so, i hope you realize that you’re hurting the fans with a uncomplete concert, plus the posibility to give more bad EPs for the LPU. i hope you can solve it in a better way. best wishes mike =D

  21. danielpsoad09 on October 18, 2008 at 5:57 pm

    Well, then I guess the cd will have 18 songs, but please put the whole show on the DVD.

    And I hope you don’t put the missing songs on LPU .. I think we deserve a b-side or something new.

  22. Jon on October 18, 2008 at 5:56 pm

    Find a way to release Hands Held High whilst the election’s in process… that fan-video a few days back was amazing and its such an important time to get everyone paying attention to what those in power do, and are able to do in the future. Whether you support Obama or McCain, awareness is required and that song is so relevant to the ‘now’. It may not be a profitable single financially, but by its very inspiration, ideas and lyrics it is profitable to the human soul if all it does is create awareness.

    Oh, and keep on replying and staying on contact with the audience, Mike. Its those things that keep me coming back and remind me that you’re not so distant a group as I sometimesbelieve.

  23. Kira on October 18, 2008 at 5:55 pm

  24. lp_fm_fan on October 18, 2008 at 5:31 pm

    Haha, you’re welcome, Mike!

    Oh, I just thought of a suggestion!

    When you read the blog post like once you hit “read more” and to comment you have to hit the comments button. I’m not sure if it’s just me but sometimes I multi-task or I just completely forget what I’m typing I have to either go back one page or open a new tab to read your blog post again. Now, is there any way you can put the blog post above the “POST A COMMENT” box?

  25. linkinparc on October 18, 2008 at 5:29 pm

    what the heck is a RSS feed?

  26. cuz on October 18, 2008 at 4:28 pm

    It’d be great to have whole show on DVD but if you’ll decide give the rest somewhere else would be nice too! Have a nice day πŸ™‚

  27. grace on October 18, 2008 at 4:05 pm

    mike… is nice be in touch with you…… but… why the other members doesnt care about LP fans?
    thx for take your time and update your blog…

  28. ninguem on October 18, 2008 at 3:10 pm

    mike, one blank cd have 80 min, they could insert at least somewhere i belong (points is a bit overrated, i will not miss so much) but let the dvd consistent with cd is weird, the dvd need be the full show, not only like the cd, the dvd you can rip the audio to listen in your mp3 player, the cd too, why have the same content
    and at least they will sell the dvd separated? will be better and cheapier to us, i will not buy the cd, because i have the full concert in sdb.

  29. Hybr1d_7h3ory on October 18, 2008 at 2:58 pm

    Thats all good news. I look forward to the potential update.

    High 5’s from Kansas…Hybr1d_7h3ory

  30. zwierz on October 18, 2008 at 2:40 pm

    If you’re planning to put those missing tracks on LPU8 I can’t imagine how angry the fans will be… Btw, I’m glad that some of you here liked my TLTGYA video. It took me a couple of days to make it, but when I read that someone had tears in eyes after watching it, I know that it payed off.

  31. noidea on October 18, 2008 at 2:30 pm

    oh…………….no………………………The songs were cut because it won’t fit in one CD………..
    Then I would prefer to get just DVD without CD. I want to have the video with full show…………
    I hope they will be included in the hidden track or something like that but it still feel like an incomplete DVD……..
    Anyway, looking forward to see your new sites in the future. I believe it will be good

  32. sandra on October 18, 2008 at 2:20 pm

    haha, mike. funny to see, how well you know your own site πŸ˜‰
    actually, there’s a simple and fantastic solution for spotting rss feeds: just use the social media browser !
    it always points out to existing rss feeds, media streams, search engines etc.on the websites you’re visiting…
    and it also allows you to directly manage your social media tools like facebook, myspace, rss feeds, twitter, photobucket, youtube, emails and much more with just very few clicks. you should really try it! i love it!

  33. lucky_cat on October 18, 2008 at 2:12 pm

    OH! already over? I had to work the whole day and put my idea on the LPMB one hour ago but it seems I was too late … Never mind …

  34. Mikeshi_Linkfort on October 18, 2008 at 1:59 pm

    Mike I am assured everyone will are glad to updating of yours blog, but I wish to ask as health of Chester? He has recovered?

  35. Joanie_LP on October 18, 2008 at 1:56 pm

    yey! πŸ™‚ put music player m/

  36. MS_Ineedyou on October 18, 2008 at 1:45 pm

    Hey Mike . I come to this website everyday so i am happy to help with any new ideas πŸ™‚ By the way CONGRATULATIONS for making onto what will be a BIG movie’s soundtrack also known as Twilight…. i have read the book and it is very good. Stephanie Meyer (the author) is a HUGE fan of LP so she wanted to put you guys on the sound track πŸ™‚ Take care !

    —————-Brooke .

  37. Monciukaz on October 18, 2008 at 1:17 pm

    Thanx Mike and keep up the updates!!! =))

    But I wanna ASK you not to theme… How Chester’s health?? PLEASE ANSWER……

  38. Kalini on October 18, 2008 at 1:09 pm

    Thanks for keeping us posted, Mike! No matter what Sparkat will say, it will take them some time to develop the new software. However we are patient and we are happy to help. I’m sure they will create a functional web site. Krassie K.

  39. rubyred82 on October 18, 2008 at 12:52 pm

    I know this has nothing to do with the suggestion box, but I thought you might find this video interesting. Kind of “holy shit” and “that’s cool” combined haha.

  40. Vecel on October 18, 2008 at 12:47 pm

    i think the site is ok. its great to see how you tell personal things about your job and life,i respect that. you are one of the biggest rock star right now,so its great that you have still so much time to talk with us..waiting for road to revolution,its going to be awesome i can feel it! best wishes

  41. graveguard on October 18, 2008 at 12:47 pm

    The limitation to the cd isn’t true -.-
    I’ve got CDs at home with a limitation to 99 minutes.
    Even if you wouldn’t cut out the encore breaks it should fit on ONE cd!

  42. Joanna on October 18, 2008 at 12:44 pm

    road to revolution is a nice name for the live dvd/cd.

    If you could, please please see if you guys could get involved with the making of the Linkin Park Underground 8 or at least have a say as in what goes on the LPU8 cd.
    We were kinda ticked that LPU7 had live music from Projekt Rev ’07. Im sure you guys know that at projekt revolution 2007 we could buy the live cd from the show we went too.

    And I cannot thank you enough for being nice enough to walk in on the meet and greet at the Camden, NJ show last July to sign our stuff with Brad and Joe.
    It was amazing.

  43. Madlen on October 18, 2008 at 12:36 pm

    I can’t wait to see the new stuff:DBtw the site is already awesome so:DBtw it would be cool to have like a video of the week thing or something?A video that impressed you the most or something like that:)Oh btw congrats on you guys being on the Twilight soundtrack:DHave you read the book?

  44. Trip on October 18, 2008 at 12:25 pm

    Thank you!!! Most people check out this site daily (me included) and im sure that we and u will benefit : )! Keep up the updates!

  45. zimminator on October 18, 2008 at 12:23 pm

  47. ShadowerLiltani on October 18, 2008 at 12:22 pm

    Glad to help, after all, I check this website every single day. I check it more than my own website, which is a little scary… Anyways, since you are always informaing me about something, I figured I’d inform you. In New Haven, CT, they are allowing a group of young children to make a public mural for a building, and are trying to teach them the difference between aerosol art and graffiti tagging. I don’t really know where to find more information just yet, but I am going to try looking it up online for some kind of article. The newspaper article I read really makes you want to go out and make a mural of your own πŸ˜€

  48. Jaclyn on October 18, 2008 at 12:12 pm

    Looking forward to updates of your blog! Soon there’ll be the 1st annivesary hehe πŸ˜€ I don’t wait too much for R2R, we shall see what we shall see ;)) Btw your and Chester’s outfit were amazing!

  49. I_B_Long on October 18, 2008 at 11:55 am

    YAY! thats all i have to say. and im talking about the RSS link.

  50. miKer0cks on October 18, 2008 at 11:47 am

    o.O great!!!! i cant wait for the new and for teh new cd/dvd….but i wish somewhere i belong and POA were in it too cause these songs are like…..the best on a live performance and sooo powerful πŸ™‚ anyway…..can u plz plz plz plz tell us how’s chaz? i’m really really sad about him 😦 is he better? o.O plz plz plz mike, let us know!!!! πŸ™‚

    cya and take care ok? kisses and hugs from greece ❀

  51. Sonia_LPrnway_ on October 18, 2008 at 11:35 am

    i hope these songs are used on this CD/DVD as extras (as you said on the LPMB ) and NOT ON THE LPU8 cd!! for the love of god please don’t! we don’t need another cd with live songs that we already have…

    and sorry if i sound a bit bitchy

  52. faiintx on October 18, 2008 at 11:28 am

    mike, i cant wait til road to revolution comes out =D

    you’re the best!!

    and good job on typing with capitals & stuff.
    im only 13 so i dont have to worry about that yet =D

  53. MarishkaLP on October 18, 2008 at 11:23 am

    it’s too bad that these songs Somewhere I Belong, Papercut, P.O.A, and Wake 2.0 will be missing…

  54. moodyrocker on October 18, 2008 at 11:16 am

    Does that mean on the LPU cd? If so could we at least have a demo of a song that didn’t make it to MtM? ❀ you :p
