MOCA Apprentices

January 23, 2009

Incidentally, I would feel guilty omitting the fact that MOCA, JANM, and museums of their kind deserve your support. In tough financial times, these institutions are hit pretty hard. Whether you want to donate money, or simply visit to take in their incredible collections and exhibits, your help is appreciated.

    ‘Lil’ Wayne (they seemed intrigued / repulsed by him for some reason, LOL).’ Like duh!

    Shinoda sensei looks comfortable in his element! I’m sure the student’s artistic talents will flourish & blossom because of apprenticeship programs that are available, despite the difficult times we live in today. I hope one day they pay it forward and realize that it does come full circle.

    Mike, you look so cute!!🙂 It’s cool to see that you spend some time with things like these.🙂

  4. Shadow on January 27, 2009 at 6:06 am

    Looks like you enjoyed that🙂 Picture number 1 somehow reminds me of my job and so of where I am right now, lol. Means: looks a little bit like a good teacher teaching his class and uhm, I am working as a secretary at a school for trainee teachers😉 And picture number 2 reminds me of a photo of one of the best trips in my life to Singapore… (BTW: what is up with all that “Fuck” in the posts down here?!)

  26. ricemuncher on January 25, 2009 at 7:54 am

    Hey Mike! This is Dale one of the MOCA apprentices. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit us. It means a lot coming from someone who has had so much experience in both the music and art industry. Thank you for being so down to earth and open minded. I can’t wait to see your future exhibitions, wish you all the best and I hope you continue inspiring young people like us.

    PS your art books are amazing.

    thank you thank you!

    Dale M.

  27. ShadowerLiltani on January 25, 2009 at 7:04 am

    Whaddya mean, “for some reason”? I’m pretty repulsed by him too, he has this creepy smile while he raps that gives me the willies. I know the music and the personality are usually kept separate, but there are certain times when you support certain rappers like Jay Z, Lil’ Wayne and Snoop Dogg that you start too unintentionally look like a hypocrite. That’s been on my mind. Anyways, for the photos, you look like you are really in your element. I’d love to have an opportunity to sit down with a bunch of fellow artists like that and have a big discussion. Your status has a large effect on the Asian community, too, and you should be proud of that.

  28. orangeDennis on January 25, 2009 at 4:16 am

    Hey Dear Mike,today is Chinese Spring Festive Eve.I want to share the happiness of all our Chinese people!Happy Chinese New Year!

    -Cati~

  36. NoMoreSorrowGirl on January 24, 2009 at 1:02 pm

  37. Madlen on January 24, 2009 at 12:38 pm

    Aww you would have been a great teacher:DDid you have artists coming over at the college you were in?Probably yes…:D

  38. tpbarbosa on January 24, 2009 at 12:34 pm

    Mike, you look so adorable in all of those photos, I’m really jealous of those ppl, I mean they must had learned a lot from you.
    Anyway, Mike please answer my last question(posted on the last response to fans) , I think it would take only 2 or even 3 minutes😉
    You’d make me very happy and somehow I was needing those advices🙂
    Hope I can count on you =]

  39. rockermeg on January 24, 2009 at 9:36 am

    It’s great that you do stuff like this Mike
    You look like you had a lot of fun xD
    I really wish I could visit JANM (and now MOCA) but it isn’t too easy to get from England to LA.
    You should come to London and see some art galleries; there’s loads! And they’re all really interesting.
    Have you ever been to Tate Modern?? Actually that’s a bad example the smaller galleries are better
    You should check them out next time you’re over here
    xxx
    (PS – I heard via SodaHead you’re looking for acts for Projekt Rev ’09. I suggest Paramore!!! They haven’t been going long but they are crazy talented!)

  40. Shinoda77 on January 24, 2009 at 7:07 am

    Mike, be my teacher! xD❤

  41. missdunno on January 24, 2009 at 6:23 am

    I wish I had teachers like him…lol. He looks so happy and passionate! Those students are very lucky!

  42. Kalini on January 24, 2009 at 6:08 am

    These students are lucky to have Mike Shinoda as a lecturer in their Apprenticeship programe. It’s very nice from you, Mike. I’m sure you’ve given to them a lot of motivation and they’d never forget it. I’ve learned a lot during my Apprenticeship programe, especially from the conversations with the people I met then. Very cool photos! In the first photo it looks like you’re telling a funny story in order to make them relax. They look very shy at the photos. It’s been a great experience for them! Thanks for the links to the sites! KK

  43. zahra on January 24, 2009 at 5:42 am

    lol i wanted to be there!!!!!…lol…..that was niiiicceee ..thanx 4 the share…..hey mike can u pls pls pls pls pls pls pls pls pls……LOOK AT THE COMENTES ON THE OBAMA BLOG!!!!!!!….and if u don’t its all right…..but i’ll be really pissed that u never ever answer me…

  44. Blaesbjerg on January 24, 2009 at 4:56 am

    Lol, you look really happy on these pictures.
    Those students are some lucky bastards, every artist would like to discuss things like that with you :b

  45. msgirl on January 24, 2009 at 4:51 am

    haha!u r the only one optimist in these pics… :)hey!I HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT UR PAINTING FOR 5 MINS..AND I FOUND S/TH STRANGE…U KNOW WHAT?KKK….THERE IS A SIGN OF LOUIS VUITTON ON THE CHILD’S GAS MASK..:) HAHA…ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I FOUND INTERESTING IS THIS. AND I AM SO HAPPY THAT HE STILL HASN’T DIED..:) CUZ I REALLY LOVE HIS CLOTHE STYLE..:)🙂

  46. Shinodabestfriend on January 24, 2009 at 4:21 am

    aaaw this is cool… ^^ (and you’re gorgeous as usual…) …let’s see if I can donate somewhere……😀

  47. soyuneik on January 24, 2009 at 1:14 am

    lol! This soo proves my Ms clone/robot/alien theory. Admit it!

  48. Dori on January 24, 2009 at 12:54 am

    Thanks for sharing, Mike! It’s nice to see you donating your time to events like these. When you’re on tour or just loungin’ at home in Los Angeles, do you have a favorite art museum(s), other than JANM, that you like to visit?

    On a sidenote, I have to echo everyone’s sentiments about that smile of yours! You definitely have one of the goofiest, but cutest smiles! (:

    Catch you later, Mike

  49. ThePrincess on January 23, 2009 at 11:55 pm

    Sorry I didn’t mean being childish ..but Why I feel that you look very handsome in that pic and when I see the way you laugh it seems you are in a good mood right ? ok back to the topic when I opened MOCA & JANM site i’m very interested and now I will find out the way so that I could donate a little money for them..wish me luck and btw next times if you post something please do not enclose your photograph because it makes me UNconcentration here🙂 .. well thank you for sharing HOT TEACHER

  50. Noda89 on January 23, 2009 at 10:48 pm

    Is it just me or is Mike the happiest person in both pictures?? 0_o’ Lmao

  51. tristyn on January 23, 2009 at 10:27 pm

    hey mike what’s up. im hecka jealous lol. i wish i was an apprentice… even tho i’m not really sure what that means. hahaha. i think the main thing about lil wayne people don’t like about him is that he has talent and he’s changed a lot of things in mainstream rap but he still talks about stuff that doesn’t really have any relevance. that’s what my brother says… but iono. i like his rhymes… they’re insane. anyways what i really wanted to ask you… is i saw your piece oyakodon that you posted last time and i been doing art for a long time, but one thing i don’t really understand is the symbolism and stuff in art. can you explain that or something please? aight thanks i’m out =)

  52. ArmadaMusicLead on January 23, 2009 at 9:51 pm

    Hey. Mike or anyone, do you know how to send demos to Machine Shop. It used to say on the website, but now i have no idea. My band and i are trying to send it to a couple labels and M.S tops our list. Comment back

  53. ms_shock on January 23, 2009 at 9:45 pm

    you’re SHINING!!!! I wish i could see such a happpy, kind and shiny person! THank you for your attention and grins xD We all love you for this happiness that you give to us. Take care and have a WONDERFUL day!

  54. Hahninator on January 23, 2009 at 9:29 pm

    Hey Mike – quick question. SodaHead is doing the ‘What band would you like to see on PR09’ contest currently. Can you simply let us know if PR09 is going to happen in some form or just crush the rumor if it’s fake? Thanks! -LPLive. Any other album/touring updates would be appreciated. Hope the studio work is going well.

  55. pepper on January 23, 2009 at 8:11 pm

    hey hey hey mike!! those kids look like theyre havin a blast, wish i coulda been one of um!!!

    on an unrelated note (sorry): is this true Mike?!?!?!? http://www.sodahead.com/question/240566/linkin-park-asks-who-do-you-want-to-see-on-projekt-revolution-in-2009/?tki=poll_related

    Projekt Revolution ’09 is happening?!!!!!!! Please make my life and tell me this is legit, not a fake. I want a PR this year soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo bad!!!

  56. thuy01 on January 23, 2009 at 7:42 pm

    Wow Mike you look so great and so happy😀
    The students there are so lucky but why did nobody laugh hard like Mike😀
    If I were one of them I would laugh like this :)) or like dis =]] ooo i forget i would hug you tight Mike😀

    Im listenin to the songs from the underground and they are awesome😀
    Linkin Park 4 life :X
    Fort Minor 4 life :X
    Mike 4 life :X :))

  57. MS_Ineedyou on January 23, 2009 at 7:30 pm

    You look soo happy !! Haha. Your laughing in both pictures !! Your smile is contagious Mike !!! Haha. Why were you laughing so hard ?? xDD Oh well. It’s good to laugh !! Everyone says Linkin Park is getting old. (the members) I think you ALL look like your still in your mid twenties !! Don’t listen to that stupid hate mail. You guys look great :)—Brooke .

  58. Illara on January 23, 2009 at 6:47 pm

    that’s really awesome! nice pictures, Mike.

    smile more, your smile is contagious. xD

  59. Sonia_LPrnway_ on January 23, 2009 at 6:47 pm

    what a big grin in both pictures!!!!! you look so happy!🙂

  60. cuz on January 23, 2009 at 6:31 pm

    Whoa, that’s great! Those students were so lucky! I’d love to have a apprenticeship with you. You are so helpful to other people and look so happy with it! I love the fact that you are so active, doing so many different things. How many hidden talents you still have, hmm? You can make music, art, speak on a conference, teach the students and keep all of us so happy doing that🙂 It feels like sharing your heart and talents with everybody. It makes me want to be more active too. You’re so inspiring… And it also makes me feel so proud for you. Would love to listen to your conversation with the students. That has to be so funny and interested! Good night🙂

  61. Carla on January 23, 2009 at 6:13 pm

    Woah, it’s so awesome to be lectured by the great Mike Shinoda lol. Seriously, I wish I was one of those people. I also like how your expression pretty much looks the same in both pictures because it looks exactly like:😄 But yeah, I’ve heard about the museums getting hit recently and some of them even closing down as a result. Although I know I can’t exactly make donations at the moment, I still visit them alot in my spare time.

  62. Sintia on January 23, 2009 at 4:18 pm

    This is EXACTLY one of the reasons why I’ve been a fan since ’99. Of course it was LP’s music but how involved you are not only with your own fan base but with people who are in need. You also reach out to different people with different interests. I am very proud of all of you on no matter how big LP & FM has gotten you keep yourselves personally involved. That is why I am glad that you post links and information on message boards, blogs, etc to get fans to help if they want to. Thanks for keeping an open mind and doing a great job with every that would help others. Also keep bloggin & postin so me and others can help as much as we can. Take Care!

  63. YuN_RoCks on January 23, 2009 at 4:12 pm

    I can’t believe this, it is so great what you did Mike, you know that right? have a talk with you at the moca about art, music, LP and stuff would be the greatest thing E-V-E-R. Oh I’m so freaking jealous! DAMN! I fucking hate living in this country forgot by god and everyone else! I’m about to cry, it’s so weird to see you in a situation like that, sitting on the table like a professor, cool! that experience must have been crazy, funny and interesting, I would have killed to be one of those guys..sob.

  64. lucky_cat on January 23, 2009 at 3:14 pm

    Looks like you had a lot of fun! Awh, I would love to visit all the museums and galleries in L.A., of course, but it’s still a long way to go for me. It is on my list … Btw, the situation for our Berlin institutions is not much better, unfortunately. Hard times …

  65. keineAhnung on January 23, 2009 at 2:48 pm

    damn! I wish you would come to my university too, but I don’t think you’re that much into technical drawing, are you? ROFL (but we could offer you lectures about solar energy or the field of study about ‘Industrial Environmental Protection…’, so you wanna come by??? ;p)

    anyway, wish I could donate, but I don’t have much money either…

  66. Ash75 on January 23, 2009 at 2:27 pm

    see Mike? everyone says that you’re still young ;D Nice pictures, you’re so happy there🙂

  67. NeneLP88 on January 23, 2009 at 2:15 pm

    I love this. Really. I love the way you get this close to fans, young artists, guys who want to do something serious with the band they’re in. And giving them tips, but in the same time learning something from them. It shows that you do care. And that’s simply magical to me❤

    This kids have been so lucky having the chance to meet you.

    PS: what happened in the 2nd pic? did someone tell a joke which you only got? ha😄

  68. analoggirl on January 23, 2009 at 1:50 pm

    I love your respect for dialogue. You’re as willing to learn as you are to teach.

    Those guys are lucky… Well Mike, do you think Obama will do something about the financiël problems?
    Or actually, do you think Obama will change everything in a good way?
    Do you have faith in him?

    I’d love for someone like yourself to come into my university – it would make learning Business Computing much more interesting. Any offers?

    I love those pictures with you on – that smile! You look so flaming giddy! Lol. Whatever you’re taking – I want some!

    I wish I could make donations to a lot of organisations, but unfortunately, the organisation ‘Lynnie’s Empty Wallet’ is highest on my agenda! Lol. Care to donate? My student loans are going NOWHERE this term!

    On one of your New Year posts, I asked a question about the recession! Did you happen to see that, at all?

    Have a nice day.

    Hey Mike! It’s pretty nice to see your happy face!You and the guys had a very great time! I think my question will relate in some way to the topic😀 My friends are interested in your seven string guitar MS ibanez Would you tell us when and where did you play it? For what songs was it supposed to be?

    That’s awesome =) That would be really fun. It seems funny that in the pictures, everyone else just seems mildly happy and you’re busting a gut. But that’s just you =P
