Poll, art show

June 10, 2009

A new poll is up on the LP.com message board. It cuts off at 250 votes, so get in while you can…



PS: “Participating” in an art show means that I’m going to have a painting in the Ron English / Michael Lau art show. I’m physically going to be doing shows in Europe (unless I figure out how to clone myself before then, in which case my clones will be at those events, and I will be in the Carribean).

    At least you can go to the Caribbean if you really wanted to! Lucky!

  2. Madlen on June 16, 2009 at 6:05 am

    Tuff choice…btw it would be sooo cool if you find a way to clone yourself:DThat way you can make your fans happy all over the world:D

  3. KATHYxx on June 14, 2009 at 9:54 pm

    A year later and he still hasn’t figured how to spell Caribbean. I kid i kid.

    Mike, if you do invent a cloning machine, can you include one with every LPU 9 package? I need a few chores done.

    PARAMORE!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOAH!!!!
    Oh God I can’t believe you grouped them with Fall Out Boy and Panic at the Disco :/ PARAMORE ROCK!!! I just got their live DVD “The Final Riot!” seriously amazing.
    Red Hot Chili Peppers forever x3
    Muse are touring in November 🙂
    Well that’s not very nice…you wouldn’t want to play the shows?

  6. Sintia on June 12, 2009 at 9:46 am

    O’ Mike,
    Your trying to pull a Multiplicity?! That would definitly be interesting. Just try not to go too far on your clones cuz you know what happened with #4. lol (exhibit A) I hope you, LP, and your families are doing good and are in good health. : )

  7. Arwen on June 12, 2009 at 4:32 am

    Wow!!It’s a good idea have clones!!!!Lucky u!!!haha. ((((((:

  8. Lynnie on June 11, 2009 at 2:05 pm

    I have clones! One at uni, one at home and one finding a job to earn me some money and I’m already chilling in the Caribbean (you spelt it wrong! Ha!) – for enough money, I could clone you!
    Outta curiosity – if/when you’re ever feeling down and like everything isn’t going as you planned, hoped or expected – what do you do/who do you talk to?
    I’m asking cause I’ve hit a point in my life where I don’t know what to do next about anything… and no one is offering any advice!
    Peace out, Noodles – take care of the pineapple!
    (I really need to lay off the Red Bull)

  9. cuz on June 11, 2009 at 2:00 pm

    I checked the Rage Against The Machine / Beastie Boys / Red Hot Chili Peppers / Cypress Hill option. On the art show – hope you can show us some photos of the piece. Can’t wait for Glorious Excess (Dies)! Take some time to rest 🙂

  10. Eddie on June 11, 2009 at 1:17 pm

    Great poll Mike. The PS is very funny! You had one of my Top 3 bands in (LP, Metallica, Nickelback). I voted for Nickelback, Limp Bizkit, Red hot chilli peppers, rage against the machine, 3 doors down. If you want watch this . It’s from the WWE, the Eddie Guerrero’s 3 Doors Down – Here Without You tribute video, when he passed away back at November 2005. I don’t know if you know him but it’s a great video, dedicated to a great wrestler, husband, father and much more. Eddie Guerrero and Linkin Park are my inspirations. Take care bro!

  11. Janni_Loves_LP on June 11, 2009 at 11:03 am

    Hi Mike! Sounds interesting, but where in Europe is it? 😛 The clone idea sounds interesting… Maybe you could stay here in Europe, and let the clone stay in the U.S.! 😀 ❤ Haha, just kidding… Btw. I voted "Rage Against The Machine / Beastie Boys / Red Hot Chili Peppers / Cypress Hill" & "Green Day / Rise Against / My Chemical Romance / Muse". All of them are awesome!! m/ Rock on! – Janni ❤

  12. mike_n_LP_4ever on June 11, 2009 at 11:02 am

    Finally ! I voted for more than one ! 🙂 But the best one had to have been with Rage Against The Machine, Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Cypress Hill…then after wuz with The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, and The Who . But may I question you Mr. Shinoda: Where is Bob Marley and Sublime ? 🙂


  13. DRUMMERDALZIEL on June 11, 2009 at 8:28 am

    oooh, shows in Europe! Please let us know if you have one lined up in the UK, it’s about time I caught up with my artistic side!

  14. tinkerbella26 on June 11, 2009 at 7:57 am


    Can you let us know when the New Divide video is released? Sorry I know my post is supposed to be “topic releated”.
    BTW I voted and the whole clone thing was funny!! LOL

  15. ShadowerLiltani on June 11, 2009 at 7:10 am

    That was nice of you to clear that up. I’m glad you did that for them. I wanna see this painting very badly. Oh, I remember what it was I wanted to ask you. Maybe it’s already been answered in the forums, but, when will the video for New Divide premiere? Or are you guys keeping that a secret?

  16. lucky_cat on June 11, 2009 at 5:41 am

    LOL … Cheers!

  17. Shinoda77 on June 11, 2009 at 5:41 am

    **Oh now im rly relaxed xD ur coming to Turkey ❤ oh and i already voted**

  18. DinaraLP on June 11, 2009 at 5:31 am

    I look forawrd to see your taking part in the Ron English. Because this kind of painting is very seriously and needs a lot of fantasy and also wit, a liitle bit of sarcasm….oh, how I look forward to see it!!!!

  19. miKer0cks on June 11, 2009 at 4:59 am

    Cool poll again Mike 😉 I’ve voted for the first 2 🙂 ”my clones will be at those events, and I will be in the Carribean” Hahahaha! 😀 That made my day!!! LOL

    PS. Jade is so lucky to be hanging out with you next week, but she’s a lovely person! Really you’re gona like her…She’s awesome 😉

  20. alex86 on June 11, 2009 at 4:00 am

  21. Elliot_aka_MC_Eli on June 11, 2009 at 2:34 am

Sick group, with sick guitarist. omg mike… total sidetrack here…… but please watch this guy, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JV00eW3wjHw he is so freaking funny! hahaha he’s better than george lopez or freakin carlos mencia. His name is Gabriel Iglesias

  22. gaby_ on June 11, 2009 at 1:16 am

  23. Gabry94LinkinParkfan23 on June 11, 2009 at 12:55 am

    Hey Mike 🙂
    ok, I’ll vote 🙂
    “my clones will be at those events, and I will be in the Carribean” LOL XD
    take care 🙂

  24. Ezza on June 11, 2009 at 12:30 am

    umm im not that confident in some of my musical abilities and was wondering about putting up a cover ( no backing music since one of my arms is in a cast 🙂 ) how would i stop any one who wants to take it down like lables that might get a little cranky?
    thanks 🙂

  25. sizedude on June 11, 2009 at 12:08 am

    To be honest, each group (from this poll and the last) always had just one band to make me not vote, despite being some top faves in there so I’ll just tell you my top 4/5 (excludeing LP):

    Innerpartysystem (they where with you at Milton Keynes)
    The Killers/Green Day

    Quite like The Prodigy and Pendulum as well some of Jay-Z’s stuff.

  26. ThePrincess on June 11, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Actually I prefer Avenged sevenfold But they’re not there 😦 so i choose Green Day / Rise Against / My Chemical Romance / Muse .. anyway speaking about ‘clone’ thing ..I really supporting that idea 🙂 ..i think you must clone yourself become 4! one is at those events,one is in the Carribean ,one is doing a show & the original one is with me ..here .. in Spain ! ( yes , I was a bit lonely in a foreign country alone ! ) LOL ! well regardless of your clone I prefer the real you .. thanks for your ‘PS’ daddy !

    NOTE : Btw you look handsome in the Street Dreams Movie Premiere .. I like your shirt ..very suitable

  27. Dori on June 10, 2009 at 11:55 pm

    Cool, Mike! Too bad you won’t be able to attend, though… However, August is right around the corner, if things still look good for YOUR art show…

  28. redwoman on June 10, 2009 at 11:53 pm

    if you’ll ever be able to clone yourself please tell me how…I want my own Mike Shinoda even if I’d rather be on holiday in the carribean with you.

  29. eleni1997 on June 10, 2009 at 9:14 pm

    Hey Mike! I voted “Beatles (1965-1968) / The Who / Led Zeppelin / Jimi Hendrix” :)) Thanks for the explaination on the “PS”..!!

  30. DianneMaeS on June 10, 2009 at 9:01 pm

    I figured that was the case, but wasn’t sure. Thanks for the clarification.

  31. Curiosa on June 10, 2009 at 8:39 pm

    lol What are u up 2 Shinoda? lmao –& then the clones will retaliate & take off 2 the Carribean & force u 2 b in those locations while they relax. 😛 lol Please no clones. Its bad enough having 2 deal w/one you. 😛 j/k Or am I? 😛 lol So did u hang out w/the guys at Disneyland & did u also wake up on Tues. w/a big hang over like a certain other person did. lol Well it’s his b-day week, he’s allowed 2 do that. 🙂 Can’t believe I mised Cheap n Dallas last weekend, hopefully I’ll be able to hang out w/the guys when I go to LA. If not maybe next time, thay’re funny together & pretty cool. 🙂 Oh so will they be on the new Transformers soundtrack? Don’t disapoint.

    PS: I like 87_Hetfield

  32. Maaark on June 10, 2009 at 8:00 pm

    Voted Mike. I chose Green Day / Rise Against / My Chemical Romance / Muse (not a big MCR fan tho) and Fall Out Boy / Offspring / Panic At The Disco / Paramore (not a big FOB fan either).

    By the way, I laughed so hard at your PS. If you figure out how to clone yourself, let me know! Take care Mike!

  33. lp_fm_fan on June 10, 2009 at 6:18 pm

    Green Day / Rise Against / My Chemical Romance / Muse <== first choice, though I don’t like MCR too much. Rage Against The Machine / Beastie Boys / Red Hot Chili Peppers / Cypress Hill 2nd choice.

  34. ninguem on June 10, 2009 at 5:45 pm

    i thought you was going physically, but you can try clone yourself, and clone the rest of the guys to make more shows

  35. milasouzams on June 10, 2009 at 4:59 pm

    uall…it’s so cool!!
    really…Mike needs a clone!!

    Kiss ♥

  36. EpilepticChickenScratch on June 10, 2009 at 4:58 pm

    @IBLONG – HAHA, Bia. I agree. This is why I don’t use the LPMB anymore (for future reference, I stop using the LPMB because there were so many n00bs complaining all the time. It had nothing to do with the fact that Joe (87_Hetfield) was making posts like he did. Joe = love). Oh, life. I should tell Mike to stop bringing in so many “one-post n00bies” when I hang out with him next week, HA. PS, Mike, you need to take off auto-formatting on your comments. That name SHOULD have said “I[underscore]B[underscore]LONG,” but instead, it looks like a rapper really wanted to talk to his “BEE.” Hmm.

  37. soyuneik on June 10, 2009 at 4:50 pm

    Aww, Bust. Yea… I’m going anyways. Ron is dope and I need some cool toys. Better get to making those clones. You need one Shinoda per capital.

  38. I_B_Long on June 10, 2009 at 4:50 pm

    if Joe (87_hetfield) gets chronically depressed, the” in betweeners” will hold you personally responsible. 😉
    edit: @Jade LMAO! i feel discriminated against. its underscore discrimination! why would anyone wanna undermine my underscore? (oki, bedtime for the drunkie)
    edit again: if you are making clones, i need one. my son frowns upon my skillz (or lack thereof) on the keyboard. seriously, he would rather hear a train whistle over and over for 20 minutes straight that listen to me play a childrsns song on his toy keybord. i must be REALLY bad… so i call dibs on the first available clone 🙂 and to clarify, Joe is a friend.
