    dear mike,

    have you designed EVERYTHING on the page…im talking about the codes too…me as webmastress i know how confusing those html codes can be…i wonder if u kno em 2…and if u spend ur time wif that! or do u hav guys at sparkart workin 4 u?

    and more and more celebreties have blogs which I honestly really like coz we Fans always wanted to have a closer connection to our stars, and when they write their own blogs, its just amazing..

    like kim kardashian..i mean she posts funny old pics of her..thats so cool…if I would be a fan of her i would love it! so maybe u post sum pics of baby shinoda so everybody is lke: aww..

    Howdy Mike,

    Long time no comment. I’ve been sloshing (for the lack of a better adjective)through school and haven’t been able to get on here as often as I would like. I really like all the updated/new additions, they really make the site more user friendly. I can’t wait for “RTR” and “Songs From the Underground” next week. I missed you on Love Line the other day, but I just got my hands on the audio from it. Sounds like you had a good time

    If you do not post before then, Have a Happy Thanksgiving Mike…Hybr1d_7h3ory

  5. sassi_lp on November 21, 2008 at 7:29 am

    IT’S ROAD TO REVLUTION DAY!!!!!!!!! πŸ˜€ Just bought it, good job guys! however, you were even better in Berlin:)
    But ey, at least we get to have the precious new cd/dvd set 4 days earlier than y’all in the U.S xD
    How can I put pictures in my post btw? I want to share my Starbucks-mug that you signed for me with the others aaround here… xx Saskia

  6. lpfaint43 on November 21, 2008 at 6:41 am

    heh good way to keep things organised, something i never managed to master

  7. Shadow on November 21, 2008 at 5:09 am

    Thanks for all the additions! I like the Welcome Page πŸ™‚ And I agree to linkinladie328 – what does this writing mean? A bit off topic but I just found out that my order for the “Road to Revolution”-DVD is on its way to me – can’t wait to see more after the sneak peek on German MTV! That was already great so now I’m waiting for more! πŸ™‚ See ya next week!

  8. zahra on November 21, 2008 at 2:24 am

    OH!!! MIKE RATING THE BLOGS WILL TAKE YEARS!!!!! I DONT HAVE THAT MUCH TIME TO GO OVER ALL MOST A 100 BLOGS !!!lol…..BTW ur site looks awesome!!!!! i love the new change!!!!!

  9. Charlotte_Jay on November 21, 2008 at 1:43 am

    Cool changes Mike! mikeshinoda.com is a GREAT place now! I love the rating system, tag listing is very much useful, it helps to find posts easier AND Mike, please come back soon…we really miss you πŸ™‚

  10. msgirl on November 20, 2008 at 10:30 pm

    hhmm,thanx for the additions mikey!! πŸ™‚ wow….ur welcome page is really nice…..i’ve just reaized the reason that why u’ve never responded me…cuz i write thoughtless,mean,generic comments…yeah?because i don’t live in US(which means i don’t know american culture,style very well)and because my english isn’t good at all….but i will try hard…. πŸ™‚ OK!!! actually i am trying hard to write good comments…but u know, that i don’t have any background knowledge about those artists,people u post about(the art i like) and ‘lost in translation’ – it’s so difficult to understand,cuz i am not good at my english…kkk..anyway,i love ur all post…:) u r the greatest person in the world . πŸ™‚

  11. analoggirl on November 20, 2008 at 8:04 pm

    Mike, your recent Loveline appearance made me break out the Digital Underground. Here are some lyrics in print from Digital Underground’s “Kiss You Back”:
    Shimmy shimmy cocoa-pop / We-we chocolate cross-over / Yea, we chocolate cross-over / See me cocoa might go pop
    I’m cocoa and I might go pop

    If you pinch my nose I’ll play with your toes / If you look real cutie I’ll play with your booty/ If you hold my nuts I’ll /Awright, that’s enough! That’s enough!

  12. linkinladie328 on November 20, 2008 at 4:30 pm

    question: (kinda random) but what does the writing under mikeshinoda.com mean?

    you’re awesome!
    appreciate it.


  13. SteppinRazor on November 20, 2008 at 3:11 pm

    I need to visit more often – everytime I’m here, so much has changed!
    Anyways, I don’t really have anything worthwhile to contribute.
    Mainly, I wanted to express my JOY from hearing u on Loveline last night. Well, in my time zone it was the wee hours of the morning, but that’s beside the point. Loveline alone is AWESOME but whenever u and/or anyone else from LP is there, it just somehow makes it all the better. πŸ˜€

    Know what else? Rob needs to be made aware of how much fans’d love to see Rob stop trying to blend into the background. Hearing him speak would be cool too. LOLl


  14. rocksylvie on November 20, 2008 at 12:19 pm

    Hey. Mike! I’m gonna miss you!

  15. simsta21 on November 20, 2008 at 11:46 am

    Ahhh that nice Mike i like what you’ve done. The site is more friendly πŸ˜€
    p.s Mike, heard you on loveline and notice you did a oops when talking about the dvd (btw which i cant wait for so excited!) you said the venue was Milton Keynes nono Mike that’s the city πŸ™‚ the venue was the National Bowl :)…just thought id let you know for future interviews and stuff for the dvd.
    p.p.s while im talking about the best PR ever winks lol hope you and the guys liked the cars that were given to you that day along with Mr Spongebob who i hope enjoyed the show

  16. rde on November 20, 2008 at 11:38 am

    Hi Mike! I know you’re a lover of snekers and I would have bought your amazing DC’s if there were enough small sizes. But unfortunately my feet are too small, so I made my own MS sneakers πŸ˜‰ Check it out and tell your opinion:

    And I just saw Joe’s sneaker collection and I was wondering can you beat Joe? ;P What kind of collection do you have?

    Greetings from Finland, – rde

  17. uuJesly on November 20, 2008 at 10:27 am

    Hey ,it’s awesome.I like your Blog .And i also wanna say “thank you”to you . Today is the most special day for me.

    i enjoyed listening to u on the show & i cant believe that you were actually asked to sign a Baby & actually did it!!
    thats just pretty Awesome!

    i cant wait to buy Road to Revolution!!
    just by watching the Trailer,i know its gonna be Awesome!!

    take care mike & have a good day/night[depending on when you read this,haha.]

  25. ninguem on November 19, 2008 at 1:03 pm

  27. Sonia_LPrnway_ on November 19, 2008 at 11:37 am

  28. rockermeg on November 19, 2008 at 10:39 am

    O.o Mike don’t leave uuus!!!! )-:

  29. Lobby on November 19, 2008 at 10:01 am

    A while ago you asked someone to change your picture on the wiki page.. I remember someone said (s)he did it, but I couldn’t see the picture changed. So I did it myself. Hope this pic is better, I myself find it cool, take a look here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Shinoda#Linkin Park the pic on the right! And thanks for the rating system and SEARCH! I love that, much easier for me to find the Wassup vid. Hehe. πŸ˜€

  30. Shinoda77 on November 19, 2008 at 9:07 am

    OMG we really needed this πŸ˜€ I love all the changes. Thank you for everything Mike πŸ™‚ We’ll miss you, come back soon πŸ˜€ Love you ❀ xoxox

  34. Umi on November 19, 2008 at 2:17 am

    Cool, your blog is more an more developing to an extended homepage instead of just… well, being a small blog. I really wonder, how much of the site’s layout (not the pictures, I’m talking about html and stuff) and the new additions you did by yourself and how much of it was done by someone else you pay for doing it (=sparkart?). I wouldn’t be, like, “disappointed” if really just the pictures and posts were by you, since you probably have a lot of other things to do… though my friends and I tend to make jokes about this not being the case, based on the number of your posts XD But you know we’re thankful for every single one of it, right? ^^ Lots of greetz – Umi~

  35. ms_shock on November 19, 2008 at 1:26 am

    I love your blog now!!!!! It’s GREAT!!!! Great job xD And where will you go? Post abt this xD

  36. nemi on November 18, 2008 at 11:22 pm

    and i am agree with aqua101, we really wants to hear if there is anything new about the next album !! πŸ™‚
    well, lookin forward to read more from you next week, then^^
    take care =D

  37. Gizmo_Mogwai on November 18, 2008 at 11:14 pm

    wow, I love the additions:) and I’ll be miss you and your blogs Mike!:'(
    and kinda HAPPY BIRTHDAY, cause two years ago today was your first artshow;)

  38. kellz on November 18, 2008 at 10:30 pm

    mike i’m coming out of nowhere on this one but you should make it a point to play madison square garden on the next tour…please and thank you! haha. i will never forget the first one πŸ™‚

  39. Mireya on November 18, 2008 at 10:21 pm

    Can you help me start my on web page? I want to make one of my family…your web page is pretty cool…how about you give us some tips on how to start one. If it helps I have a mac?

  40. Aqua101 on November 18, 2008 at 9:47 pm

    What?! Few days? Next week? Oh, NOOO!! Miikkeee…please don’t go!! Don’t leave us too long!! We’ll miss you. Can’t you bring yr Lap-Top w/ you??…tears in my eyes and sniff-sniff 😦 :(….just kidding, enjoy yr days off, Mike. Hope to hear some good news & posts after u come back, especially on yr new coming album. I’m sure u’ll be very productive. BTW, I like yr new page. But, where is the music section?

  42. WTF on November 18, 2008 at 8:34 pm

    If there was a post on Barack Your Wold…I’d give that 5 stars. Actually I just want to see the Behind The Scenes stuff of a certain someone playing with Barbie dolls and puppets. For the lol’s.


  43. LP_Suneet on November 18, 2008 at 7:11 pm

    Awesome Mikey……..The new features are amazing!!!!!

    We’ll do as you ask…..

    But please don’t be away for too long…..

  44. asaulp on November 18, 2008 at 7:04 pm

    Love all these new features! The site is so much more maneuverable (not that it wasn’t prior to the additions); I hope that you’ll be working on the LP album in your departure for a few days. Can I ask that you put up some tips for oil painting, specifically, since oils are much more different than acrylics in technique? Thanks. I’m anticipating an early/mid 2009 slot for the new album! (:

  45. ThePrincess on November 18, 2008 at 6:08 pm

    I Really love the new additions, Awesome..but WHERE ARE YOU GOING ??? pleaseee..dont go too long ok ..I miss u already 😦 😦 😦 ..come back soon mike ..and please take care ur self !!!

  46. lynndarwinharris on November 18, 2008 at 5:07 pm

    Love the new additions!

  47. ShadowerLiltani on November 18, 2008 at 4:47 pm

    Where is you going? Me no want you to leave… I figure since I work with whining children everyday I get to whine to at some point. (insert another whine here) But anyways, your site is so shiny and prettiful. And I get to look at it everyday which is awesome. But yeah, I was telling a kid today about Ken Block, which sparked another really big conversation about cars and the “vrrrrm” noise he likes to make. I showed that video to my father, too, he got a kick out of it.

  48. Danielle7777 on November 18, 2008 at 4:23 pm

    I really like the new additions to the site, it looks really good! You’re leaving us for the week! NOOOOOOOO! jk :p But you are leaving pretty much on my birthday. I will be 13 tomorrow… or well today sence on the post it says November 19 lol. Well I hope you have a great week and good luck on the new album. Danielle

  49. ravivandmikefan4life on November 18, 2008 at 4:19 pm

    I love the new effects.
    They are so awesome

  50. Elliot_aka_MC_Eli on November 18, 2008 at 4:13 pm

    what about your top 5 fav fan comments?

  51. Hawaii_LP_fan on November 18, 2008 at 3:53 pm

    I like the polished look of your site. Adding the google search is a great idea for incorrect spellers like yours truly. :o) Visually, the organized columns to the right gives it a crisp & clean look. Everything fits together in perfect harmony. I’m sure lots of your time was spent going back & forth kicking up/implementing innovative changes to your site. Great job & huge success! AMA’s is slated for this Sunday, all of LP nation is cheering for you. I know without a doubt you guys deserve to win. Hope to see LP at this gala! Have a productive, fun-filled, & hopefully relaxing week. Thanks Mr. Mike!

  52. sterilepoon on November 18, 2008 at 3:42 pm

    I expect that by “going to leave for a few days” you mean “going to work my ass off on the Linkin Park record” so I’ll let it slide~ Randomly, tomorrow I’m touring Jun Kaneko’s studio, and was thinking you might be interested in some of his work. His shit is HUGE. http://www.junkaneko.com/

  53. lucky_cat on November 18, 2008 at 2:53 pm

    Yea, it looks cool and is very comfortable now! Good job Sparkart! Thank you for implementing our suggestions. I’ll peek through in the next days. Have a good time!

  54. mike_n_LP_4ever on November 18, 2008 at 2:48 pm

    NOOO! MIKE DON’T LEAVE!!! LoL jk This is really cool! Like I loged on here and I was like, “WTF??? Am I on the wrong page?” But that’s a good, ‘WTF’ c[= This is sooo cool dude!!! I’m so stoked on your new website Mike.

    I’m gonna go back to old posts and rate a bit here and there, have a nice trip wherever you’re going to! see you soon then ❀

  60. Yume on November 18, 2008 at 12:47 pm

    Hey Mike!I like how you make great efforts for your side and how you care about other people( and their opinions). Please stay the way you are ( and were^^). But I have got a problem: the links: 3. Mike Shinoda / Blog and
    4. Mike Shinoda / Blog (most popular) don’t work for me. T.T
    btw.: hope you and the rest of the band are fine and I’m waiting for your new record.
    Take care! Kimi

  64. Raspberry on November 18, 2008 at 11:00 am

    Where are you that you’re a day ahead already?!

    I like the welcome page message and the drop down for topics. Very nice setup. : )

  67. Jaclyn on November 18, 2008 at 10:54 am

    BIG RESPECT AND MUCH LOVE! The coolest blog I’m hanging on now ))) i didnt expect “google” – that’s just great! It’s a pity that in upcoming week i won’t be able to look thru and rate your old post but later i’ll do it, btw soon you’ll celebrate the 1st Annivesary of MS.com πŸ˜‰ it’ll be nice to check out ‘the last year’.
    Have rocking days and relax!

    ps hm rarely but i see that some ppl crop your tag from the pics, i cant understand : if ppl need your pics ergo they are LP fans so how they dare to cheat YOU (( something goes wrong in the danish kingdom ^^

  68. Sven on November 18, 2008 at 10:44 am

    Hey Mike, thats some pretty nice improvements, i just started to read al the old posts! very cool stuff i haven’t read again since you’ve posted them!
    Btw, i think there are still some problems wich whants to be fixed:
    – Video Section; if i click on any of the 3 Videos it always show me the “Glorious Excess: Art Show”Clip
    – Photo Section; some of your posted photos don’t show up there, some are shown at the bottom of the page at recent photos but don’t enlarge by clicking.. and i think some photos should be put in the right section (don’t know why your guitars are in the “minutes to midnight” section. so thats it. hope you enjoy your break with your wife, friends and family.
    best regard

  69. pandora426 on November 18, 2008 at 10:31 am

    PS. I dont know if you saw a comment I posted a few days ago…I was asking your opinion about something I wanted to do on my art…Well, how can I make my drawings look more shiny? Should I use glue, like you once did in one of your paintings?

  72. eleni1997 on November 18, 2008 at 10:26 am
