September 20, 2009

Thanks to all the fan sites covering our stuff–I didn’t expect so many of you to post links. Thanks for the love. LOTS of DeviantArt galleries as well; great stuff! Assuming that if you’re coming here, you already know what’s going on in the LP world, I’m not going to re-post any links to fan sites (although they’re great, and I did check them out). Let’s begin!

Firstly, while you’re looking at these links, throw on the soothing sounds of:
MaTT (Beat-O-Rama) http://www.myspace.com/minoreffectmusic or
Burning The Night Sky (a little heaviness from Michigan, USA): http://www.myspace.com/burningthenightsky

6 – Naville Obeso’s blog, en espanol:

7 – Humor, culture, and blogginess from the UK:

    Hi Mike, I just wanted to say that I would be honoured if you could chceck out my remix of New Divide. Yes, I know that you’ve heard billions of LP remixes. I can only assure you that it’s not some kind of off-key or off-beat shit. I don’t know if you’re gonna like it but I really think that it’s worth of giving it a try. Greetings. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5S7gK08_Ow8

  8. Banquet_Tables_Pro on September 23, 2009 at 9:20 am

    もし本当に私はあなたまたは単に自慢したいあなたを愛し、マイクは昨日、考えていたのが、私あなたが私の魂の伴侶が好き私はあなたの愛…しかし、愛と傷心の希望、私はいつも、もう少し、ほんの少しのために期待したが、今ではこの目的のための時間、あなたの曲を、あなたの言葉を、あなたの冗談を、これまでせずに、この生活に感謝されているが痛いハイハイ…

  17. Metal_Value on September 22, 2009 at 12:39 pm

    I agree with Yun_Rocks, http://www.bobsmade.com is absolutely incredible, I went on when Yun posted about it few posts down, and it’s amazing, your own customizable clothing, amazing I love the concept, and it looks so easy to order aswell, some of the artwork also reminds me of your style too, it’s pretty sweet, I’m suprised it ain’t in the top 10. But thanks for the publicity for the sites dude (y) You do an amazing service for us =]

    Peace man!

  19. cavpollo on September 22, 2009 at 11:23 am

    Its a nice thing you do this kind of stuff to let the world learn about other’s people sites that offer good quality music, information, etc.
    Great blog by the way ^_^

  20. bangbangbangonddoorbaby on September 22, 2009 at 6:28 am

    Arsalan is my buddy, i always enjoy his stuff =) ROCK ON DUDE

  21. soyuneik on September 22, 2009 at 2:16 am

    I had a dream last night that a serial killer fronted on me and then I ate a sandwich.
    Shh its 5am, sleeeeeps

  22. shinoda_fan on September 21, 2009 at 11:31 pm

    Mike,what would I have to do to work for Linkin Park?
    or even you? I would like to be part of the LP family…

  23. Full_Metal_Ninja on September 21, 2009 at 5:50 pm

    Great top 10! It’s just so awesome you do stuff like this.

  24. Stepzero on September 21, 2009 at 4:20 pm

    haha thats so freakiong cool, Matt is in our band (Step Zero), pretty sweet having a featured artist with us :).

    please check us out too http://www.stepzer0.com — looking to release an album this year, independently

  25. YuN_RoCks on September 21, 2009 at 2:53 pm

    Let me say that I’m quite disappointed..Personaly I thought that music spaces like myspace were not even considered in this kind of “promote post”: you gave them the chance to promote themselves (letting us vote too) several times already. And myspace is not actually a blog platform, isn’t it? there was a girl I was SURE you would choose ( http://www.bobsmade.com ) but you didn’t: her art is AMAZING and the site is WAY cooler than those you posted (no offense guys, great blogs). but that’s life. I still think you’re amazing and this promotion you do is awesome!

  26. Madlen on September 21, 2009 at 2:40 pm

    Thanks for the links…I really like some of the sites.My favorites:2,4,7.Btw on the 3rd site I read that the guy made a flyer for Machine Shop:)Oh and Minor Effect Music-good stuff:)

  27. ShadowerLiltani on September 21, 2009 at 2:31 pm

    Ya know, I have never heard of a celebrity or famous person before who is so into talking to fans and getting involved in anything fan related. I’m sure this has probably been said before, but you are a very sweet person, and very down to Earth. Did you seriously look at all of those websites? There were close to 200 of them…

  28. HybridThe0ry97 on September 21, 2009 at 12:58 pm

    MIKE You forgot this one: http://photos-e.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs217.snc1/843114859680500264065000227646124388559_n.jpg

  29. Stephamotix on September 21, 2009 at 12:21 pm

    C: neat.

  30. rocksylvie on September 21, 2009 at 12:20 pm

    Hey, Mike! I’m not one of your fans who had time to post a link (I’m so sad I don’t have enough time for my kid sometimes.). I just want u to know that I’m still here loving your music (more than ever and more and more!!!) and I’m still waiting for u’r next album. Can you tell us something about it? Pleeeaase! Luv’ ya! 4ever!

  31. rockermeg on September 21, 2009 at 12:09 pm

    Ah awesome 🙂
    I was going to post my friend’s DeviantArt but you said not to :/
    The dominoes are EPIC WIN
    These beat the hell out of mine.
    Also, I’m going to post her dA now, because it’s her birthday today 🙂 And she is absolutely amazing. She entered a competition for under 16s in May. 1,500 people entered and she won.

    Thanks for the Mediahacker promo, Mike. Dumskeme and DominoBrothers are dope!

    (By the way, signing up for the LP network was a really arduous process for me. Switching your blog over to WordPress might make things better…)

  44. jeffryLP on September 21, 2009 at 6:24 am

    AGREE .. Cool choices 🙂

  50. Eddie on September 21, 2009 at 4:33 am

    The sites rock! They are awesome!!! I didn’t posted at “Promote your site” post, cause I don’t have an official promotion site, or a blog, only personal site/profile (myspace, facebook, twitter)… But at my personal site, http://www.myspace.com/addictedtoeddie (put _ between addictedtoeddie, it doesn’t appear…) , I promote your work, LP’s and DBS’ work. Check it out if you want! 🙂 Congratulations to Top 10 sites! Great work guys! Take care Mike!

  54. Rex on September 21, 2009 at 4:11 am

    cool, i love how easy it is to discover great music on myspace. with that aside, time for some randomness. i hate to share food with people. it’s like they try to take away the pleasure of enjoying your wonderful meal alone. unfortunately in school, private meals are not an option. insert sad smiley face here.

  55. Lucie3 on September 21, 2009 at 3:41 am

    hey mike,it’s me Lucie,your Chinese fan~~seems that you didn’t choose me,but it really doesn’t matter.maybe Chinese is a little bit diffcult to you.the most thing I wanna tell you is,I’m with you and LP 4ever~~~hope you would remember my name Lucie.from Hangzhou China.here’s my blog agian:http://blog.sina.com.cn/u/1603084455.maybe you can check it out,and learn some Chinese.hope LP will come to China again next year!I’m waiting!!!love.Lucie.

    I like Yegor Borisenco’s 8bit site. Especially the architecture photos made me all happy. 🙂 Thanks for filtering all those sites.

  62. Beatorama on September 21, 2009 at 1:33 am

    wow… didnt expect that! thx so much Mike, the fact of you listening/enjoing my music totally made my day!

    Congrats for everything

  63. boyzdontcry on September 21, 2009 at 1:29 am

    Actually I have one favorite site, that I think , The Most Alluring Website in The planet !!! unfortunately I respect The warning signs ( ‘This is a personal site, for Les visiteurs not allowed to publish the address without the permission of the owner’ ) , makes me not able to share here !! .. so, I only can say ‘ good choice ’ dude 🙂 ***

  64. luckyluck on September 21, 2009 at 1:23 am

    Although your choices was different with what’s in my head right now, but still , you are The Regulator here dude 🙂 …

  65. niabai20 on September 21, 2009 at 1:05 am

    It would cool. I saw all of the website.
    And it so cool.

  66. WidyaRahayu on September 21, 2009 at 12:55 am

    it’s why i got so shocked when i found my heARTwork on your ‘Art I Like’ folder. assumed that what you like was like these top ten you chose, while compared to mine.. i felt that my works were too..naive 😀 but i better not play with my perception. keep up the good work everyone! hugs ^_^

  67. girlaloud on September 21, 2009 at 12:43 am

    🙂 !!!!

  68. LPmadman on September 21, 2009 at 12:39 am

    You’ve set your options dude , .. so, I just followed what was ordained here 🙂 !!!

  70. lp_fm_fan on September 21, 2009 at 12:22 am

    Nice links, I checked out a few of them but for some reason my internet is going really slow, took me forever to log in! However, I did like this site: http://www.pimmey.com/ the photography is awesome, I love photography. Annnnd http://naveobeso.blogspot.com/ 🙂

    I wish you told us what kind of sites you were most interested in, and by that I mean if you weren’t gonna post any LP fan sites I wouldn’t of posted the MSC site, lol. But, I do think you should make a top 10 LP fan sites? Especially to the fan sites that are small and just starting. xD Those sites have hardly any viewers compared to he bigger fan sites, lol. sigh

  71. ThePrincess on September 21, 2009 at 12:12 am

    I agree http://www.dumskeme.com/index2.php is located on the first order coz I think that is really interesting and informative site , .. but it seems you didn’t mention to us specifically ,What kind of sites, which you think are included into a better Category 😉 !!

    NOTE : I was very shocked and grieved when I heard the news that The Legendary Turntablist Anthony Williams aka GM Roc Raida has passed away On Sept 19th , I hope his family is given the strength and patience to accept this unexpected tragedy !!

  72. Moepi on September 20, 2009 at 11:18 pm

    huuh…every morning (it’s 8.o5am) I visit you site: shock! Well xD…you didn’t choose my site, but it doesn’t really matter to me 😀 just because I’ve posted the link in here, I got over 200 visitors only at Saturday. And one of them wrote me an email that he likes my site…but doesn’t understand German that well, so I decided to make my homepage bilingual (English + German). At least, I finally did it xD (anyone there who wants to check out my bad English? ->http://moepiarts.piczo.com/?cr=7)…haha, I won’t complain ’cause you didn’t chose mine, it was your free choice and I’m gonna check out what you’ve chosen 😀
    But now…school >< byby 😀

  73. Bettie on September 20, 2009 at 11:15 pm

    Alas, I didn’t make the team. Those are some interesting sites, though. Minor Effect Music seems terribly familiar…feel like I’ve bumped into him online before, perhaps from the LPU or some such.

    Thanks for sharing them with all of us, and I really dig your idea of connecting with your fans…and connecting your fans to each other.

  74. aLLey_beNNoda on September 20, 2009 at 11:14 pm

    That’s very nice of u to promote those sites,honeyface!
    Hey,ever checked this site? http://www.bennoda.co.nr :p
    p.s:that site is pure fictional,so don’t take it too seriously,okay..

    so you also skipped over my question i’ve been asking your for the past two years. you know, the one about Given Up.
