Carson Daly Interview

May 30, 2009

I did an interview with Carson Daly for his show yesterday. Keep an eye out for it on his show. We talked about New Divide, the new record, and listening to NWA and 2 Live Crew when we were kids. I don’t know when they’re going to air it, but it should be in the next couple of weeks.

We also talked about the new white and green MS/DC Remix sneakers…speaking of which, it’s your last chance to get 20% off on stuff in the web store. If you buy a pair of the new shoes, you get that discount on anything else in the store (so if you were thinking of getting one of the prints, that’s $100 US off). Just FYI…



EDIT: I don’t make money on these items; the money from the sales of my art (which includes things such as the sneakers, books, and prints) goes to charity. It goes to Music For Relief and my scholarship at Art Center College of Design.

    Hey Mike, just out of curiosity. Why did you only do the high tops this time? I like the shoes but I think low tops would have cool too. 🙂

    Hey Mike 🙂 Those shoes are awesomer 🙂 and you’tr a good person 🙂 donating the money MFR and the Art Center College of Design sounds great 🙂
    Congrats ^^
    Take care and have a great day Gabry

    I love the simplistic design of the shoe. The kanji writing gives it your personal stamp, Shinoda, Kenji? In japanese class, I’d be an ace at hiragana & katana but kanji, kind of heta! There are so many characters that sort of look alike but are totally different because of a little stroke inside the box or outside. 🙂 Besides that I think guys would look pretty fly wearing these sneakers! 😉 I can visualize Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, or Dwight Howard sporting the look. Besides it’s ALL for a great cause! Susie

    Mike, I was right that I believed in you. You’re really good and nice person). The price is reasonable). Thanks). God help you with the album!

    Mike, you’re such a good person man, that’s really great that you donate the money from your art to charities.

    Your new sneakers are beautiful and the price is reasonable 🙂

    Fun. I’ll look out for the show 🙂
    I found this new site where you can make music. It’s a little limited but it’s easy to use:

  13. miKer0cks on May 31, 2009 at 5:06 am

    Cool! I’ll keep an eye for the show 😉 And yeah once again….You’re the best! I’m so proud to be one of your fans cause you give everything to charity and to your scholarship 😉 That’s so cool! Almost no one does that…Keep doing your thing Mike 😉

    PS. the new LPTV episode is hillarious! Especially the part with the gum song! Hahaha! I was laughing so hard when I saw it! And I can’t wait to see your new art! From what I saw on the video I bet they’re awesome! (as always!)

  14. mushroom on May 31, 2009 at 4:33 am

    will watch out for that show,Mike! i love New Divide.

  15. linkingabo on May 31, 2009 at 3:45 am

    I love your remixes and mixtapes, but this is one is the best for me…..cuz there is what I like:::: rap and rock mashed together in great harmony 😀 ….you got me to listen to Public Enemy….and I will make a remix/mash-up with them soon…..good job MS ;))

  16. Lvix on May 31, 2009 at 2:39 am

    Okay, i will keep an eye on that show, The shoes are awesome, gonna buy them in next few days when me dad agrees,

  17. Chemist999 on May 31, 2009 at 2:34 am

    Well, it’s your… “product,” or piece of art. You don’t have to answer to anyone regarding where the money go. Though it’s good you’ve found such a creative way to help fund your scholarship. And this way you can involve people around the world in it.

    And I love that reflective surface. Though it’d be even more viewy if they were on a black surface, to make them look like they’re just floating in the air.

  18. Shinodabestfriend on May 31, 2009 at 2:31 am

    you are a really good person. I’m so happy to support rare people like you.. and your arts are very beautiful… great work Mike!

  19. LP_fen4e on May 31, 2009 at 1:39 am

    Your shoes are really cool …ThunderStrike I like white shoes ; Carla LOL
    Mike It’s good that you make all the money for charity. 🙂

  20. lucky_cat on May 31, 2009 at 1:38 am

    I guess I’m too far away for all of this and my feet are not big enough … but I think I’ll buy the art book package asap since I saw it’s restocked. Talking about this, is there a date for GLXS (Dies) already?
    Souneik: LOL … I doubt the ostrich srtategy is helpful, keep your head up 😉

  21. soyuneik on May 31, 2009 at 12:49 am

    My wisdom teeth are late. Better late than never.
    Half way through, they started drilling into the backs of my molars.
    Now they’re cracking under pressure and I’ll let them.
    I can either have them pulled or put out my album. (end)

    If I had the money… I would buy them for the charity.
    If I didn’t like white… I would donate them to someone who needed some shoes. (problems solved) “I’m going to bury my head in the ground like a flippin’ ostrich now.”-ME ::Pats Mike on the back::

  22. TinaPants320 on May 30, 2009 at 11:32 pm

    That’s so cool that you make all the money for charity…
    A group at my school is actually interested in getting involved with some charity’s
    and we want to try and get involved with Music for Relief…
    How would we go about that?

  23. ThunderStrike on May 30, 2009 at 11:03 pm

    Two problems with your new shoes –
    1. They’re expensive. I know there’s a 20% discount on other items but if I buy the shoes, I’m not gonna get anything else. So instead of saving 20% I’ll probably end up spending like…180% ?
    2. They’re white. I won’t wear them, and I don’t want a pair of ‘shoepieces’.
    Sorry, Mike.

    oh, mike we know that this money goes to charity.. you’re amazing do you know ? and about your new shoes, I liked this words in japanese.. white and green, I like this combination !! but I think I prefer your first shoes.. I don’t know.. it’s more colorful.. I hope see you making a show here in BRAZIL with your new shoes !!!

    kisses from karolp and Brazil that love all of you !!!

  27. ShadowerLiltani on May 30, 2009 at 6:04 pm

    Sorry Mike, but, unless I know where my money is going, I typically won’t buy stuff from you unless it’s an art book. (Art books are always worth it, I’m building a collection of many different ones, on different styles). You are one rich motherfucker with a wardrobe bigger than mine, and more shoes than most women, so, you don’t need my money. I am looking forward to the show if it’s available with my cable, but I gotta say, I can’t stand Carson Daly. (Edit: I was just teasing you… Don’t be taking what I say personally.)

  28. DianneMaeS on May 30, 2009 at 5:47 pm

    I remember going to Carson Daly back in 2005 for the FM performance. I got a free t-shirt for being the loudest FM fan there. And you shook my hand before walking onstage :]

  29. ChazyChaz_LP on May 30, 2009 at 4:24 pm

    thanks for all the information, mike. really appreciate it.- jay

  30. NoMoreSorrowGirl on May 30, 2009 at 4:17 pm

    Is Carson Daly and you were friends since kids!?

    And I don’t even know who Carson Daly is!…hehe!

    Post the new LPTV here…is that your new LP sound on the background of the video!?

    Take care man!

  31. cuz on May 30, 2009 at 3:50 pm

    Nice. Hope the interview will be on YouTube very soon.

  32. Carla on May 30, 2009 at 3:27 pm

    Maaan, I really wish I could buy those sneakers but I have really small feet. (looking fresh by the way!) I will try to catch the interview then! Ahaha, but I think I’m somewhat more interested in what you’ll say about NWA and 2 Live Crew for some strange reason lol.

  33. Maaark on May 30, 2009 at 3:15 pm

    I wish I could watch it. There are no TV channels that broadcast this show in Brazil. Maybe some person with a good soul will put it on Youtube. You can find anything on Youtube right? HA! Well you could also post the interview here after they broadcast it on TV. Just an idea.

    Man I’d love to buy your sneakers. And your prints! And everything you sell in the web store. But they’re too expensive if you buy them with Brazilian money (which is called real btw). Any of your prints cost more than 1,000 reais, for example. If I lived in the US, I’d have bought some (and the sneakers) HA!

    Try to bring some sneakers to Brazil in your next concert here. 🙂 Take care Dr. Shinoda.
