    That’s an awesome video, I like the song at the end, lol.

    Your international fans beg for you to take your art over-seas 🙂
    Glad you’re still going with the art, hope to see that piece soon
    Don’t want to watch that video for fear it’ll be anti-semetic and I don’t want to hate you… [hugs]

    Good stuff Mike. That Ron English video was pretty cool, his work is kind of an evolution of graffiti.

    You know there is a pretty nice art gallery here in KC, the Nelson Art Gallery, you might have heard of it. But you should totally put on a show there 😉

    I can’t wait for the “New Divide” video on the 12th and Transformers on the 24th.

    Take care Mike…Hybr1d_7h3ory

    Hey Mike great news , but I hope this will not conflict your summer tour this year (especially your first two shows on 19th of July in Turkey and on 21st of July in Greece)….awesome news again!!!!!!take care!!!

  8. cuz on June 10, 2009 at 10:55 am

    “Butthole surfers”????…-.-..sounds strange to a german…xD^^

  10. numbrocker02 on June 10, 2009 at 10:22 am

    That’s really awesome Mike! Though doesn’t that date conflict with the touring this year?

  11. ShadowerLiltani on June 10, 2009 at 8:05 am

    Wow, that’s really cool. You’ve been all over the place lately, lucky you 🙂 Also, I found an article regarding some other things going on in North Korea: It doesn’t mention Laura and Euna, but, I think these two being taken into custody has a lot to do with this. Anyways, Obama’s slogan, “Yes we can”, is very good, I like it a lot. But, if I actually wanted to be in office, my slogan would be “The legacy stops here”. War is never necessary. It is such a male dominance thing. I don’t think South Koreans want to be blown up to feed Kim Jong II’s ego.

    Well, that sure is nice for you but what about the first dates of the European Tour? I hope nothing goes wrong because I’m attending Linkin Park on July 21st in Greece :/

  13. eleni1997 on June 10, 2009 at 5:50 am

    Oh cool Mike! But on 19th of July is the 1st concert in Europe.. (and on 21th of July the concert here in Greece)…:S

  15. lucky_cat on June 10, 2009 at 2:34 am

    I like “The Godfather” maroinette, but the cat in his hand looks really unlucky 🙂
    Cool project, Mike, I’m sure it will be a lot of fun!

    Hey Mike. Sorry this is off topic, but I didn’t know where else to put it…

    I was wondering if you were still doing the thing for people to promote their bands? I put my band (Autumn City) down for it, but at the time we just had a crappy recording on our myspace. Now our EP is done with really good recordings that represent our music a lot better. So I wanted to re-submit… or at least bring it up again so people took another look. Thanks! 🙂

  18. soyuneik on June 9, 2009 at 7:38 pm

    Yea, today sucked hardcore. Yo nah, hold up. Did I just read this right?
    Did you just say you’ll be in Nyc AND there will be toys???
    ::Insert 3 days of cackling evil maniacal laughter:: Yea, I’ll be there.

  19. Maaark on June 9, 2009 at 5:41 pm

    Oh I wish I could go! I’m glad you’re participating though. 🙂

    Take care Mike!

  20. ninguem on June 9, 2009 at 5:18 pm

    mike you can be in this galler, istambul have 10 hours more than la, so you can stay there, and after get a flight to that city, so you can sleep during the flight and arrive other person 🙂

  21. Carla on June 9, 2009 at 4:42 pm

    I’ll more or less will try to be at the NYC date. Haha, unless my family decides to take a trip across to LA…oh wait, dang I actually have my own art program then lol. I guess the other thing I thought when I saw the date was: “Why is it in September? So much later…” I mean, I only have a few more days of school left and I love how this made me jump a few months ahead to the beginning of next year. Yeah, I understand shows being up for some months before moving to different locations, but man that wasn’t cool. D:

  22. victoria on June 9, 2009 at 3:08 pm

    Hey Mike,this have nothing to do with the post, but I think that you have to watch this if you have free time for nonsense xD, is about art with sand: hope you like it, kisses from Spain one more time.

  23. Eddie on June 9, 2009 at 1:43 pm

  29. lp_fm_fan on June 9, 2009 at 12:35 pm

    Aw cool. I wish I could go, ha. Or be invited to places like that. x.x

    Hope you’re having a good day.

  30. EpilepticChickenScratch on June 9, 2009 at 12:22 pm

    Can we assume that you obviously won’t be at the opening in LA?? Mainly because that’s the date of your first tour date in Asia. So, I have a question. Honestly, how hard is it to get all 6 of you into the studio at the same time for ONE DAY?? Seriously.

  31. christina23al on June 9, 2009 at 12:11 pm

    do you know how frustrating this is? 😐
    I live in Greece so I can only check your page or youtube to find anything new about you or LP.
    I cant wait to see you guys in Athens 🙂
    keep up the good job!

  32. miKer0cks on June 9, 2009 at 11:49 am

    o.O congrats Mike!!! But hold on a sec…July 19th ? That’s when your first concert of the European tour is! Plz tell me you’re not gonna postpone the tour! o.O plz Mike cause July 21st is your concert here in Greece! I’m confused now :/ Anyway! Cool vodeo 😉

  33. Curiosa on June 9, 2009 at 11:23 am

    Hey congratulations. 🙂 That’s pretty cool. Are you still planning on having your art show in August? I’m planning a trip to LA (since my origional plans to Puerto Vallarta collapsed) & I’m hoping to be there while your art is displayed this way I can admire the detail. 😉 Anyway, any suggestions of what I should check out while in LA? 🙂 Thanks. 🙂
