Weird coincidence…

April 29, 2009

Just thought this was funny. I was on the road, going to mix our Transformers song when I saw these two cars. Don’t know if you can see the emblems, but…

    I actually saw a car the other day…i think it was some kind of Honda, and the person had removed the Honda emblem and replaced it with a really sweet transformers emblem.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA what a coincidence!!!!

  6. highlandpark on May 2, 2009 at 7:48 pm

    Haw! We live in a world of Transformers! Sometimes, I’m just waiting for them to transform in front of me. Probably a good way to clear the damn traffic here in L.A. But then again, I get to spend more time in traffic listening to Reanimation album!

  7. nillp on May 2, 2009 at 7:40 am

    i don’t believe in coincidences, but, what a weird chance..!

    anyway;

    cannot wait to watch transformers and to listen to this song! o/

  8. Madlen on May 1, 2009 at 4:30 pm

    Haha yeah I notice this kind of stuff too:DLOL one day I was actually sitting in front of this monument in the centre of the city and I was watching the cars passing me by and i was trying to spot some similarities…it was weird:D

  9. Gemeni2u on May 1, 2009 at 3:06 pm

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHIFMkmhDY0. Must have been a great sign. LOL .Got to love LA never know what you will see on the road there. I remeber driving from Redding to LA and getting on 405 to visit my boyfriend stationed at that time down there, and seeing a old high school mate driving from high school that I havent seen in almost 15 years.
    Good Luck on the mixing of the transformer song. Cant wait to hear it!

    Have a great day !
    M/Merecy

  11. vampki55 on May 1, 2009 at 11:40 am

    mike, you’re not CRAZY…it was a sign from God, who is reminding you to come up with mind blowing lyrics for TRANSFORMERS =]

  12. AmyLynette_91 on May 1, 2009 at 10:12 am

    HAHAHAH!! MIKE…. IT’S A SIGN…. !
    Gotta bring Phoenix to say that!…. wow hahahah!!! funny man!!

  13. zahra on May 1, 2009 at 9:12 am

  14. Akira on May 1, 2009 at 8:30 am

    Pretty funny ^^ And a very big coincidence.. Maybe Decepticons or Autobots wants you to be part of the revenge or the Earth defense ^^ But you are on earth defense already (MFR) ^^

  15. NeneLP88 on May 1, 2009 at 8:03 am

    Cool😀

    But HEY! were you driving AND taking pictures?? :O Looks like these pitures come from the left.. and, unless you were in the UK..😄

  16. ThunderStrike on May 1, 2009 at 5:16 am

    Autobots rule!!! I guess even Optimus wants you guys to be a part of Transformers😉

  17. Eddie on May 1, 2009 at 4:09 am

    Yeah! These are the Transformers emblems! Cool!!! Is going to be and a videoclip for the Linkin Park song ( OST ) of the movie? You know, just like Limp Bizkit – Take a look around, Metallica – I Disappear ( Mission Impossible 2 ) etc. Does anybody know?

  18. colinreid on May 1, 2009 at 4:02 am

    Yo Mike. How are things w/ you?
    I came across this trailer of
    Transformers2 12 seconds in
    of the 2nd song played in the trailer
    wondering if it was your new track
    getting played?
    http://www.filmjunk.com/2009/04/30/transformers-revenge-of-the-fallen-trailer-
    let us know please thanks Mike ( =!

  19. beamer87 on April 30, 2009 at 9:50 pm

    Damn Mike, you rock one sick whip! My pops has the same car, hence how I noticed just from some hood shots. I love that car, it’s absolutely sick!

  20. Hawaii_LP_fan on April 30, 2009 at 9:33 pm

    Funny how things happen when you least expect it. I believe there are no coincidences in life, only synchronistic events that link together to give you a hint if you notice them. As in the case of those 2 vehicles with the transformer stickers you spotted enroute to your mixing. It’s a sign! That soundtrack is going to be a success!🙂 Thanks for sharing your photos. I agree with the others about your multi-talented driving. Be safe Mike!🙂 Susie

  21. HybridSiren on April 30, 2009 at 5:29 pm

    Heh, I love all the Transformers fans. The day you released news about you guys doing the TF2 music, I saw a car on my way to school with an Autobots insignia on its bumper. :3

  22. lpstaind1226 on April 30, 2009 at 4:04 pm

    oh! these are transformer signs!!!! [/blondemoment] i noticed the license plate on that jeep before i saw the emblems…dslick1 – very nice….^_^

  23. Maaark on April 30, 2009 at 1:51 pm

    HAHAHA that’s really cool Mike! Coincidence, maybe? I don’t know… But thanks for sharing!

    Take care man!

  24. Wello on April 30, 2009 at 1:14 pm

    You probably should smear or blur our those peoples’ license plate numbers. Common courtesy, yes?

  25. MS_Ineedyou on April 30, 2009 at 1:09 pm

    haha

  26. Sintia on April 30, 2009 at 12:53 pm

    It was a sign for you to hurry to go mix the single!! haha sings Transformers. more than meets the eye. xcited can’t wait for the movie to come out!!!!
    O & hope all is good with you, LP, and your famillies. : )

  27. cuz on April 30, 2009 at 12:38 pm

    Haha, great! Everything says “go Linkin Park!”😉 Or maybe they’re just around us? Like said in the movie…

  28. Jaclyn on April 30, 2009 at 12:00 pm

    O_O HAHA Awesome! It’s a sign! They’re coming for you )))

    Mike, your great stalker!

  29. Shinodabestfriend on April 30, 2009 at 11:31 am

    hahahaha! life is really strange…

  30. tacos_on_tuesday on April 30, 2009 at 11:10 am

    Dude -you need to blur the license plate number.

  31. gaby_ on April 30, 2009 at 11:09 am

    fate dude , fate…. u know…there are no coincidence….

  32. linkinparc on April 30, 2009 at 11:06 am

    You should be careful wif the reflections mike…there could be some freaks out there trying to get your carsign number

  33. Curiosa on April 30, 2009 at 10:53 am

    lol That is a weird coincidence. Since u always show us pics of the places u visit I figured I’d show u a few of my pics that I took at the River Walk while I was on the boat tour. Hope u enjoy them.🙂 TC
    http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewPicture&friendID=230215217&albumId=802787

    @Mickey: so r u 1 of those idiots I’ve had 2 slam on my breaks or drive off the road in order 2 avoid a collision cause they’re 2 busy talking on the phone 2 pay attention? I can honestly say that I do not take pics or text on my phone while driving cause I’m 2 busy paying attention 2 other drivers & the xtremely rare occasions that I do talk on my phone I use a headset.

  34. miKer0cks on April 30, 2009 at 10:37 am

    Hehe! That’s a coincidence! Wow! really cool though🙂 Btw what car are you driving? From the pics I can say that it’s a Hummer, right?
    And please Mike try not to take pics while you’re driving ok? We need you to be safe! Don’t worry about us, you can just descibe what you saw. We don’t need pics cause your writing skills are awesome🙂 So be safe ok? Drive carefully🙂
    Have a great day🙂 Kisses❤

  35. merve on April 30, 2009 at 10:31 am

    this one is soo random…and also funny:)
    i like your posts

  36. WaffletownUSA on April 30, 2009 at 10:18 am

    Haha thats pretty funny. you prolly shouldnt drive too close tho they could transform any minute.🙂

  37. Azrael on April 30, 2009 at 9:47 am

    I’d call that a good omen

  38. pink_skull on April 30, 2009 at 9:30 am

    well that’s a weird coincidence but what weirder that how you took these pictures while you driving?? good luck with transformers give us the latest news about that super movie(:

  39. Chemist999 on April 30, 2009 at 9:09 am

    You’re taking pictures while driving? Ts ts ts… little to much courageous?

  40. rockermeg on April 30, 2009 at 8:12 am

    Ahahahaha! Yeaah man!
    Maybe they’re spying on you or something…haha i know this is really…weird, but that reminded me of the Doctor Who thing with “Bad Wolf” remember that? For all you Americans in one of the more modern series of Doctor Who (just hoping you know what that is…) the Doctor and his companion keep seeing the words “Bad Wolf” everywhere they go…I can’t remember what it turned out to be but it was complicated…hahahaha.
    That’s what came to mind when I saw this🙂
    Good luck with the track! Can’t wait to hear iiit!!

  41. QWERTY on April 30, 2009 at 8:12 am

    OMG!!!!! A sign!…xD

  42. Illara on April 30, 2009 at 8:01 am

    its a sign!😀 Transformers are watching you guys! xD

    xoxo

  43. Ana_ on April 30, 2009 at 7:30 am

    What a coincidence… :p I also think that was a sign, a good sign: the Transformers song will be fabulous!! I’m sure!😉 Ana.

  44. hmw95 on April 30, 2009 at 7:29 am

    Geez Mike… Don’t you think these people will think something if you do that? You don’t want people who are supposed to be your fans think you’re a stalker… Haha.

    XOXOXOX
    Haley

  45. mike_n_LP_4ever on April 30, 2009 at 7:14 am

    Oh my gwad ! You guys are so stupid ! So what if Mike’s takin pictures while driving on the f-ing highway ??? (:P) Um…rap artist Young Berg has(had?) a Transformers chain. I saw him wearing it in ‘The Business’ music video…but it got stolen . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYuwHr5h97M < That’s the music video. But yea back to the pictures: That’s pretty weird. I’d start freakin out lol🙂

    -Cati

  46. PankakeMunky on April 30, 2009 at 6:59 am

    that is pretty weird. it’s a sign that you guys are meant to make the transformers song amazing.

  47. Ace on April 30, 2009 at 6:52 am

    Nice car, Mike ;P

  48. Gabry94LinkinParkfan23 on April 30, 2009 at 6:50 am

    “WEIRD COINCIDENCE…” i cant believe it XDXDXDXDXDXD im still laughging XDXD secret new transformers were waiting for you Mike, pay attention😄
    take care😄 gabry

  49. MartaH on April 30, 2009 at 6:46 am

    OMG😄 ! Transformers are among us!! wow.. in 105 days I’ll be there where you took the pics, more or less.. so well, that’s awesome!! I can’t wait to come to LA and to listen to this new transformers song! kisses😀

  50. DinaraLP on April 30, 2009 at 3:13 am

    I can see it! Transformers!!!
    Mike, maybe it’s a sign? They are looking at you, they are all around you….maybe this car is one of the heroes? (XD) Be carefull!)))maybe this transformer was near you just with purpose to take you authorgraph)))

  51. ThePrincess on April 30, 2009 at 3:12 am

    According to me that was a sign.. in my country had the belief if we saw two signs that were connected with ‘something’ that we will be done simultaneously usually what we expect will be granted .. well hopefully any work that you’re doing at this time Will produce something great and got the big success AMEN !!!

    NOTE : AND PLEASE DRIVE SAFELY HON !!!

  52. Mickey on April 30, 2009 at 2:53 am

    Ha, that’s awesome.
    And come on, people. Have a fucking aneurism at him for taking photos while driving, why don’t you? Yeah, I get that it’s not the smartest thing to do and I agree with the covering-the-license-plates thing, but seriously…those of you who drive…can you honestly say that you’ve NEVER texted someone or talked to someone or taken a picture, while you were driving? I doubt it. I know I can’t.
    Mike is not 12, you know. He probably knows that it wasn’t the smartest thing to do, but still did it…so that he would have pictures to show us all. So enjoy the pictures, instead of 836754758 people scolding him for taking them, in the first place.

  53. liope on April 30, 2009 at 2:40 am

    That is funny!! I hope the drivers didn’t see you photoshooting them!!😛

    PS: I notise something here at your blog..the pictures from the Art I Like section aren’t gatherd anywhere. I can’t wacth them at PHOTOS either at ART and i have to go back to the post in order to do that! So can you please fix that (when you’ll have some free time)??🙂

  54. _MiHaRu_ on April 30, 2009 at 2:25 am

    ahahahah you are so out of your head Mikey!!!!!you just..do things without thinking,,don’t you?I’d love hanging around with you!!I bet it would really funny!!keep going on like this!luv ya🙂
    ps..mike..do even sleep with your camera?

  55. soyuneik on April 30, 2009 at 1:16 am

    LOL Perfect Coincidence. That reminds me of the time me and my boy were driving behind this jeep and we couldn’t make out wtf was in the back window. So (the crazy mofos we are) decide we were gonna find out. There is no doubt in my mind that the dude thought we were trying to kill him. I mean, gigantor bronco up your ass with the driver and passenger hanging out the windows…ha! Dead deer with its tongue hanging out. So worth it.

  56. Giffy on April 30, 2009 at 1:08 am

    how – how could u be driving & photo shooting at the same time? O__O

  57. Daga280 on April 30, 2009 at 12:34 am

    :D:D theres no such thing like coincidence !!😉 since ur working on transformers’ song u c them everywhere😀

  58. noturninbacknow on April 29, 2009 at 11:08 pm

    That’s AWESOME BABY!!!! Everyone’s got to love Transformers…..MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    LS

  59. analoggirl on April 29, 2009 at 11:02 pm

    I bet you wanted to giggle, roll down your window and exclaim to the world that you’re writing the score. LOL

    But as others have stated, taking photos while driving wasn’t the wisest decision. I’d hate for that new song to be released posthumously.😉

  60. Anstice on April 29, 2009 at 10:49 pm

    That’s pretty awesome, actually. I like the mountains, too. But, uhm…you should totally blur out the license plates on those cars. Knowing your luck, some big, burly guy will show up at your door like, “…Why you puttin’ my license plate all over the interwebzz?!?!” I dunno. Just a precaution, you know. Just saying…

  61. MissV10 on April 29, 2009 at 10:45 pm

    Can’t wait for the movie!… dude love the pics but keep your eyes on the road! Especially in LA and Southern Cali
    : D

    I have been telling everyone you guys are doing the score and i get the same response “they are perfect for it!”

    Can’t wait!!

  62. Dori on April 29, 2009 at 10:40 pm

    I agree with Epilepticchickenscratch, Mike! lol I’m more ashamed to say that I had no idea what I was looking at when I first saw the pics, but the comments other people left, helped… no offense…

  63. EpilepticChickenScratch on April 29, 2009 at 10:34 pm

    You know, everyone else is noticing the awesome decals and how cool it is that they’re Transformers and whatnot. You know what I’m thinking about?? I’m never going to ride in a freaking car with you, because apparently, you take pictures while you’re driving down the freaking ROAD. I’m going to be in Los Angeles for the SocialVibe/MFR contest soon. I seriously hope you aren’t on the road when I get there. Knowing my luck, I’ll be the ONE person walking down the road, not paying attention when your car swerves out of control because you wanted to take a picture. Safe driving, Mike. Safe. Driving.

  64. CuteWhiteBunny on April 29, 2009 at 10:26 pm

    Transformers are taking over the world!

    You probably only noticed it because you were going to work on your song for Transformers.

  65. WonderG on April 29, 2009 at 10:14 pm

    Haha!
    Thats Krazzy!
    Coincidences are krazy!😄
    DJ Starscream!!!

  66. Carla on April 29, 2009 at 10:11 pm

    Hahahaha! Now that’s some coincidence! I wouldn’t be surprised if they were to transform right in front of you. xD
