    That second to last one looks like a spaceship. Uh-huh. That’s what my brain says it is after being up for two days straight studying for exams that all seem to fall on the same freaking day.

  6. Charlotte_Jay on May 1, 2009 at 3:04 am

  13. Leena on April 29, 2009 at 9:40 am

    Haha it looks like you guys want to continue the “Mmm… Cookies” style xD

  14. maria on April 29, 2009 at 3:33 am

    wau))) Mike, that’s really sounds gorgeous)))))))). and the baloons look like candies that have different colors and remind me a big colored tasty pie)))))))))).

  15. Maaark on April 28, 2009 at 8:04 pm

    Hey Mike! Seeing you guys working, all the colored balloons. It just makes me happy! The pics are great! Can’t wait to listen to some new LP music.

    Take care man!

  16. felipeintheend on April 28, 2009 at 7:24 pm

    hahahahha WTF? thats to get some kinda of inspiration ?:P let us know man
    Now you are with your real hair cut! That made me remember 2001

  17. Lore_LP_687 on April 28, 2009 at 6:10 pm

    But Mike, I wanna ask you.. how did you get to that point?? ahahah balloons..
    Did they help you concentrate on music?? I think they didn’t.. xD I see you guys are having a lot of fun..
    I can imagine the first track of the LPU9: “Balloons, balloons.. I wish my name was balloons..” : D
    Hey Mike talking about LPU9, I know it will be a long time before it’s released, but here we were thinking about you doing covers of bands you like.. it would be great.. I post this here because for some reason I can’t enter the LPU forums..
    So here is our idea.. take Mike, love from Argentina!! ; )

  27. connielpl on April 28, 2009 at 5:51 am

    looks like a little kids dream room. hey whatever helps the creative juices flow,go for it!

  28. Shadow on April 28, 2009 at 4:53 am

    Oookaaay…if it helps…lol! Reminds me of a McD playground which has all those little balls… Anyway, as I said, if it helps to bring on some great music… At least it doesn’t look like just another manic monday…Or is it a sign of LP being overworked?! Hope not!😉

  29. SASI_the_Twins on April 28, 2009 at 12:47 am

    I hope could bring my lil bro to play with these balloons while singing with Mike ^_^

  30. Wotur11 on April 27, 2009 at 10:58 pm

  31. Neem on April 27, 2009 at 8:48 pm

    Lovely colourful pics! Can’t help wondering, though- what happened to all those bright balloons afterwards?

  32. chester2164 on April 27, 2009 at 7:27 pm

    WOW! The room looks so animated and colorful with all those balloons and lights all over…

  33. Giffy on April 27, 2009 at 7:04 pm

    LOL! awesome!🙂

  34. TiffTiff33LP on April 27, 2009 at 7:01 pm

  35. faiintx on April 27, 2009 at 6:59 pm

    i love you guys

  36. Holden on April 27, 2009 at 6:54 pm

    haha it looks like u guys r having a party! that has to be the coolest studio ever lol

  37. Keres on April 27, 2009 at 6:41 pm

    That looks like soo much fun!! So…who was the asshole and started jumping on the balloons much to the dismay of the others? Someone had to do it….was it you Mike?🙂

  38. Full_Metal_Ninja on April 27, 2009 at 4:23 pm

    After seeing the last pic, I think this is what happened:
    Mike: So what do you think of that chord progression?
    Chester: I like it!
    Brad: I would like it better if you add a ninth there.
    Rob: It’s cool.
    Joe: Hmm..I think..seriously.. It needs. balloons.
    Linkin Park: (silence)
    Mike: (Picks up phone) Hey, we need balloons.

    Hahha sorry..it’s monday..LP rocks!

  39. numbrocker02 on April 27, 2009 at 4:07 pm

    Whoa, so many balloons!! Awesome!! I like that last pic.

  40. pepper on April 27, 2009 at 3:56 pm

    Haha nice were the balloons used to effect the sound in some way? Cool concept. I love you all and I cant wait to see you guys again!

  41. ShadowerLiltani on April 27, 2009 at 2:43 pm

    Simple, yet effective. Ya know, my mother is actually afraid of balloons popping, and the sound gives her anxiety attacks. I swear to god, happy bubbly balloons freak the fuck out of my mother. Chester has a cute tummy ;D This was his idea, huh? I’d expect something so hilarious from him.

  42. Alba84 on April 27, 2009 at 2:28 pm

    Jajaja! Nice pictures!

  43. gilovesmike on April 27, 2009 at 2:12 pm

    OK!!! I understand, the simple way to write, sing or play something makes you crazy ;P haha, joke! it´s funny and make me happy to see you enjoying doing the next work. have fun guys, love you and Mike have a nice day

  44. OneOfAKind on April 27, 2009 at 12:53 pm

    Aaaww that looks like so much fun!!
    we should make a holliday of that! Fill-your-working-place-with-balloons-day!😀
    that would be awesome man! I still hope though that the balloons didn’t distract you too much from making awesome music ;D

    love you guys! <33 hope I'll see you live this summer!

  45. YourConscience on April 27, 2009 at 12:08 pm

    Awww. You guys didn’t have to fill the ENTIRE studio with balloons for my hubby’s birthday… =) Anyhow, hope you guys have a wonderful day. Can’t wait to see you. =)

  46. Curiosa on April 27, 2009 at 11:28 am

    =:0 BALLOONS! jumps on balloons – hits the floor. Ow my butt! :)~ So who’s b-day were you guys celebrating? 🙂

    Mike, that’s a good pic of you but I have to agree w/the person who said you look too skinny. I’m hoping it’s just the angle the pic was taken. Are you stressed out? Oh & all of you do look tired. You guys should get some rest, after all you’re not getting any younger. :)~ Take care.🙂

    PS: I’m so happy w/my crew on fmmb. They post whored this whole weekend.🙂 tear

  47. DLB on April 27, 2009 at 11:25 am

    stares at mike’s head in the first picture is that a heart shape in your head, mr. shinoda?o_O just kidding.😄 balloons are always fun.😀

  48. Madlen on April 27, 2009 at 11:06 am

  51. Merecy on April 27, 2009 at 10:26 am

    Hi Mike
    Ahah ! It’s funny to work in the studio isn’t it ?
    Have a lot of fun & Have a great Day

    M/Merecy

  52. KATHYxx on April 27, 2009 at 10:25 am

    Dude. Sit in a giant pile of balloons and have Phoenix or someone play a low note really loud. Maybe they’ll go all BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.

  53. cuz on April 27, 2009 at 10:14 am

    This is so cool! I’m such a kid, I’d love just to pounce on them right now🙂 And I guess, you guys play with them too, right? Hope you all have a lot of fun out there. Now I want some in my room too! I’m not asking, but I feel there must be some mysterious and funny story behind those balloons. And Rob wearing the tee which he wore at show in Poland ^^ Sooo nice. Have a wonderful day Mike!

  54. zimminator on April 27, 2009 at 10:01 am

  61. burningdaylight on April 27, 2009 at 9:20 am

    LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!! oh my…..is stress getting to you guys or something? my suggestion for the next “decoration” thing – bubble wrap. lots and lots of bubble wrap. bubble wrap is proven to reduce stress, and it’s UBER fun to play with. (and, it could also prevent chester from getting hurt jk lol!!!!!) have FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  62. PekiLinkinFan on April 27, 2009 at 9:19 am

  79. Brittney on April 27, 2009 at 6:19 am

    And THIS is the reason Linkin Park is my favorite band.

  80. relieff on April 27, 2009 at 6:13 am

    baloons! disco disco!

  81. _MiHaRu_ on April 27, 2009 at 6:03 am

    O.o well..what can I say?I think in yours minds you’re all 5 years old boys..and I love it!!!(just a question..who blow all these ballons?)

  82. LPqwerty93 on April 27, 2009 at 5:56 am

    looks like you guys have a lot of fun in the studio =)
    that’s great😀

  83. Leconte on April 27, 2009 at 5:48 am

    Are you guys in a balloon wonderland!? Balloon is called “FU-SEN (wind-ship)” in Japanese. I don’t know why it has such a name, but it sounds fantastic, doesn’t it?

  84. Alexandra1984 on April 27, 2009 at 5:47 am

    Hey that’s an excellent playground!!I don’t know if that is inspiring but having inflated all these balloons must have been really antidepressant..It’s good to see you in the studio,it seems like you have some fun and that’s very important.

  85. SalmonSushi on April 27, 2009 at 5:29 am

    hahah srsly what should we expect nowxDD i mean would it be a theme for new album or sth8Djk

  86. SkyOlker on April 27, 2009 at 5:18 am

    Hmm….people are getting weird sometimes :)))
    As long as you have fun and it helps to create something cool. That’s awesome when your working place looks like your birthbay party!🙂
    I can’t see Phoenix on pictures. I bet he was the one who was blowing the balloons :))

  87. ErbseLP on April 27, 2009 at 5:05 am

    lol it looks funny but… why have you done this?! Oo xD

    @Gaby_
    it was Phoenix, so he is missing on the last photo.😛

    Edit:
    Btw. 99 Balloons!😀 xD http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NU_2S7kC0OU (english version)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcEX7hoD9U8 (“new” german version)

  88. Stepha on April 27, 2009 at 4:36 am

    Seeing how it was 90 degrees here yesterday, I was being entertained with balloons too except mine were filled with water. My lil nine year old nephew and I had water balloon war. I won, go me. Then we painted with acyclics. His first painting, a swan. I dished out an alien baby in a tux. He said it looks like me o.O
    Conclusion, balloons must inspire.

  89. gaby_ on April 27, 2009 at 4:34 am

    woooow!!! looks like my 18 b’day party…..but..one question ??? who blow all of these balloons ????

  90. HybridSiren on April 27, 2009 at 4:13 am

    I think I just busted a gut! This is an awesome way to wake up! XDD That’s ridculous, and now a new Linkin Park secret.. The secret of the balloons! Oh man I’m gonna have this in my head all day at school, thank god I have no tests.😄 Thank you so much Mike for sharing!

  91. eleni1997 on April 27, 2009 at 4:07 am

    OOH MY GOSH!!! It’so funny! But,you won’t tell us.. why you fillled the studio with balloons?? 😀 just kidding😉 thanks for the pictures!

  92. KOBSHI on April 27, 2009 at 3:47 am

    Honestly, you guys do not match with the balloons, it seems to be an obstacle in studio, ha! Anyway, I’m pretty excited about seeing you guys working in studio even you sharing us a few pictures only. Oh but one important thing I really want to say here is, you guys have to be aware of swine influenza, it’s pretty horrible right? especially Mr.Bennington, he is always easier to get sick, don’t he? so Mike, please keep you guys stay away from sickness, because wthout the health body, you cannot do anything.

  93. teejay_92 on April 27, 2009 at 3:24 am

    haha awh; It looks like fun =]
    In the last photo of you , rob , chester , brad and joe it makes me laugh how you guys are so serious when their are ballons surrounding you xD
    Thanks for the piccy’s mikey xo;

  94. Lori on April 27, 2009 at 2:39 am

    You and I in a little toy shop
    Buy a bag of balloons with the money we’ve got.
    Set them free at the break of dawn
    ‘Til one by one, they were gone.
    Back at base, bugs in the software
    Flash the message, Something’s out there.
    Floating in the summer sky.
    99 red balloons go by.

  95. Raiden on April 27, 2009 at 1:59 am

    Thanks for the pics. I really love when we can see you guys in the studio working. I like the news about the new lp album. Thanks again.

  96. bojkic on April 27, 2009 at 1:42 am

    hahahah! awesome! I think you were celebrating sth, but nevertheless it’s cool to spice up your working environment, and it’s ubercool to do it with balloons😀 What ever makes you entertained.🙄

    WTF is that big thing that guy is holding in the first picture?😀 That’s one huge balloon. What do you need that for? “LP is bringing revolution into music making: BALLOON SOUNDS ROCK, as confirmed by one of their vocalists Dr Shinoda.”😀 That will be the headline😀 I have a feeling will will get even more awesome LPTV this time.

    Someone noticed you all look very thin😀 maybe you should have brought some food to the balloon party as well. Thx for keeping us informed. Bojan

  97. Eddie on April 27, 2009 at 1:36 am

    Ha ha!!! Nice!!! I wish I’d be there with all of you!!! You must have a great time!!! I can’t wait to hear the new album and also the Transformers song!!! This will be awesome!!!

  98. Mikado on April 27, 2009 at 1:07 am

    Nice picutres! Thank you for sharing. Would like to be there… Lovely greetings to all of you and take care

    ok Mike… Instead of asking how I was gonna ask you why… But then again.. Why not?🙂 (I forgot who I was talking to, lol)

  100. analoggirl on April 27, 2009 at 12:44 am

    Nice! I bet those balloons inspired some delicious “cookies.” 😉 Speaking of which, I’d love to hear a cookie with you emulating the Transformers sound effect. You know what I’m talking about. That would be hilarious. LOL

    Fascinating… where are the drums?

  104. Hawaii_LP_fan on April 27, 2009 at 12:03 am

    I LOVE seeing shots of you & the guys at work on your blog! Balloons? Well, lots of vibrant colors & a festive atmosphere to instill creative inspiration…good answer? Do the balloons add a certain vibish sound to the studio as you belt out the tunes? Thought I’d go on a creative tangent here…haha. In any case, I love that you are all spontaneous, full of surprises, and will never limit the creativity factor! Who else can boast 365 days of christmas lights & a flooding of balloons in their recording studio? Um, right…nada! P.S. Can’t wait to hear a snippet of LP’s innovative sound.🙂 Susie

    Miiiiike…..youve always liked ballons, just check out this video::: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jv8Yv9MK3zg …:P

    have you had a balloon fight yet?

  107. Spark on April 26, 2009 at 10:33 pm

    I did this to my bedroom last year after I found a bunch of party stuff in the loft. I blew them up by myself…took me about a week to do 300 of them😄

  108. DinaraLP on April 26, 2009 at 10:16 pm

    Wow! You guies are insane!😉
    It’s pretty fun and I think that these balloons can give you more inspiration! hm…what will be if you breath the gas from the balloon and record your voice? ;D

  109. murry on April 26, 2009 at 10:11 pm

    Dude. Whatever it takes. That really would change the sound in the room, though, wouldn’t it? I would imagine the music in the room would reverberate off the balloons and they’d be knocking into each other and making that shuffling of rubber sound. I don’t know how to describe that onomatapoetically. I just know the sound of a lot of balloons in a room. At the very least, you’d get shocked every time you touched a door knob after walking through them. Or your leg hairs would stand up. Something like that. Or maybe they just brighten up the atmosphere. Like I said- whatever it takes.

    xD cool!!

  111. Hybr1d_7h3ory on April 26, 2009 at 9:48 pm

    These pictures makes “99 Red Balloons” play in my head. Look’s like you guys are having some fun in the studio, I like the new haircut Mike. Now you just need to grow it out again and dye it electric blue, take it back old school. Is that a tiki torch in the background? What is that guy doing in the first pic, is that a giant balloon?

    I just recently bought Pro Tools 8, and I was wondering if you had any tips/tricks/frustrations/advice on where to start. I am excited to start writing music and recording it, but being that Pro Tools in my first DAW it is kind of overwhelming.

    Keep working hard for us Mike, we appreciate it…Hybr1d_7h3ory

  112. ThunderStrike on April 26, 2009 at 9:36 pm

    Umm……cause you’re so lost in recording that you think it’s still Christmas? lol =| Maybe you can use some balloon sounds in the album😉 Or in the album artwork or make a Cookie on balloons and release it on the LPU =D

  113. mike_n_LP_4ever on April 26, 2009 at 9:00 pm

    It really does look like you guys are having a lot of fun in the studio. Must have sucked blowing them all up, though. I’d love to just jump in there and start popping them.

  120. EpilepticChickenScratch on April 26, 2009 at 8:04 pm

    LOL. You guys get REALLY bored, don’t you?? Did you just wake up one morning and say, “HMM! I think I want to fill the studio with balloons today!”
    I think you were celebrating something and you don’t want to tell us what. Because it’s a secret…hmm.

  121. rjcrimzon on April 26, 2009 at 8:02 pm

    Looks like you guys have fun making music, thats why you guys are an awesome band.

  126. Carla on April 26, 2009 at 7:15 pm

    Hahahaha! That’s ridiculous, the balloons I mean. I think that’s a pretty inspiring environment to work in though. Like, I’d love to work in a room full of balloons one day! It’d be work time fun (wtf). xD

  127. noidea on April 26, 2009 at 7:11 pm

    You guys are crazy!!!

    Who started ?

    It must took a long time to fill the studio with so many balloons.

    I would love to see a LPTV about this. haha

    It makes me want to start to sing “bubble” from LPU8.0

  128. shan1105 on April 26, 2009 at 7:05 pm

    Great to see your having fun while working. who started that ?

  129. Umi on April 26, 2009 at 7:00 pm

    … do we have to be afraid of the music which might be created with all these colorful balloons as inspiration?😄’ But nice to see them new pictures (since the last ones were from February according to their file names) ^^
