    this reminds me of NIN’s “The slip”

  2. javilinkinpark on June 29, 2011 at 4:53 am

    REALLY GREAT!

  3. planetmikeshinoda on June 25, 2011 at 12:23 pm

    To be totally Honest i do prefer this background. I wasn’t fan of the green one. ;)

  4. cctjehh on June 24, 2011 at 5:36 am

    I like the new design though I think I liked the old one a ‘lil bit more… ;)

  5. ristinw on June 21, 2011 at 12:50 am

    The new design….makes me think of…. >.< blood!!! I like the previous color, green, which is more healthy and vitality.

  6. thegluelpfan on June 18, 2011 at 6:10 am

    I like the new design…it’s all red and pretty :D

  7. seniame on June 17, 2011 at 1:38 am

    Really liking this! :D Colours are nice and the background is a killer. :) The logo in the header is my favourite part. ;) Great job!

  8. bnur on June 15, 2011 at 9:15 am

    its cooler than before=Di love it.

  9. iwugrim on June 13, 2011 at 4:56 am

    this back ground is muuuuccchh better :D keep up the good work mike, cant wait to hear what lp comes up with next

  10. hightim on June 13, 2011 at 3:26 am

    simple and cool! More user-friendly interface, I think! I love it!

  11. djdomigringaupsilonnation on June 12, 2011 at 7:28 pm

    I like it, it’s more subtle, easy on the eyes. It’s a more mature Blog look =)

  12. monciukaz6 on June 12, 2011 at 9:37 am

    old one was better!!!

  13. iwugrim on June 12, 2011 at 5:45 am

    great colors mike, but the background hurts my eyes, its hard to focus on what ur writing :P

  14. jershalp on June 12, 2011 at 5:36 am

    wow… but the background is kinda distracting….

  15. faintypainty on June 12, 2011 at 3:14 am

    great, something new!

    Why don´t you do that every year, or when you have differnet moods?

    I like that!

  16. elmarvilino on June 12, 2011 at 1:37 am

    You said that, if you listen to “a thousand suns”, you should smoke something to enjoy it much more.
    I think this is the same :D
    The colous in the backround are a bit distracting, but it’s unique and i like it :D

  17. ohalien on June 11, 2011 at 12:24 pm

    Amazing?
    No, BETTER!
    This is amazing, Mike. BRAVO!

    With love, Ariel from Italy.

  18. janine1978 on June 11, 2011 at 11:41 am

    Very nice Mike. The design is more convincing and it is now more clearly structured.

    LG from Germany
    LP ROCKS

  19. iravegas on June 10, 2011 at 12:17 pm

    Mike is amazing. I’ve always liked your style.

  20. mizerablesi on June 10, 2011 at 5:03 am

    LOVE IT!!!!!!!

  21. tommyabella on June 10, 2011 at 3:37 am

    My Artwork for Iridescent ! http://ning.it/kPfS9b

  22. Agrandefadeles on June 10, 2011 at 3:33 am

    Love this new design. How long have you been planning this?

  23. evik90 on June 10, 2011 at 1:33 am

    Yeah, it’s very nice. Clear, simple and interesting ;) I like there is your art on the background – it makes it more personal and unique. It’s also good you put there your official web sites on the top of the page (now we know all Mikes on Facebook are fake or fanmade accounts, lol) :D

  24. kaynyne on June 10, 2011 at 1:09 am

    Pretty sweet, nice and simple, not over done and clear to read. Love it.

  25. lot321 on June 9, 2011 at 7:57 pm

    i hope Linkin Park’s next album will be something like this too, which is …a whole new change

  26. yooick on June 9, 2011 at 1:55 pm

    Mike sorry for my english. But with the Moscow concert is a mess. All the details here http://www.linkin-park.ru/

  27. lorenalp on June 9, 2011 at 1:23 pm

    I think it’s great, really cool

  28. jagta on June 9, 2011 at 1:20 pm

    I thought I was in the wrong page. Love the new design. And oh! there’s twitter! I wondwr what it looks like when you reply to our comments.

    P.S. How come Kim Kardashian got 7million+ followers and you only got 100thousand+…

    Cheers for your new page! :-)

  29. innamushkina on June 9, 2011 at 1:18 pm

    From recent time I notice that my tastes all anymore coincide with your. If honestly, I am not your fan, but very much respect you. If I will designed the blog, it was in the same style. So, I like. P.S. Sorry for bad English :)

  30. brysislupin on June 9, 2011 at 12:48 pm

    I love the new look! And mostly the store :)

  31. mottsimpson on June 9, 2011 at 12:44 pm

    I think it’s great mike :D

  32. alenakolesova on June 9, 2011 at 12:12 pm

    all die-hard fans will say that the good (the skipper). just a fan who is smarter – say your opinion.
    but I liked the old screen saver. pity that more do not see it, but it’s not bad.
    how many comments, I hope my fly :D

  33. autumnoh12 on June 9, 2011 at 12:02 pm

    Aw, I thought you re-designed it yourself. Way to let me down on your web abilities! Hahah.

  34. lnoelp on June 9, 2011 at 12:02 pm

  35. dovingbird on June 9, 2011 at 11:28 am

  42. LinkinFreaky on June 9, 2011 at 8:59 am

  43. mikeecem on June 9, 2011 at 8:53 am

  46. lucasstefano15 on June 9, 2011 at 8:32 am

    Hi Mike. I did a cover of the song on flute Iridescent that will be attending the movie Transformers: Dark of the Moon. He is on my you tube channel below:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=923AiwcRfL4&feature=related

    I dedicate it to the boy Kyle Rodas.

  47. an2202be on June 9, 2011 at 8:23 am

    BTW, you should have your own facebook profile, everyone has it :)

  48. MissShinoda on June 9, 2011 at 8:20 am

    I LOVE IT. <333
    Awesome, as always. :)

  49. an2202be on June 9, 2011 at 8:20 am

    Great design Mike! (most of all, I like the background & title) :)

  50. anquala on June 9, 2011 at 8:10 am

    Hello, Mike. This is the first thing I noticed when entering the site. Is not even bad. Have a nice day!=_

  51. mercenary18 on June 9, 2011 at 7:38 am

    Wow…really loving the new design!! I jus so happen to be a huge Alice in Wonderland fan too so this is extra amazing to me =) I absolutely LOVE this new design Mike! <3

  52. Radyo Plexus on June 9, 2011 at 6:46 am

    I like the new design! It’s much better than the first one. :)

  53. shivani94 on June 9, 2011 at 6:44 am

    yeah! nice….loads of new options and much easier to access.. :D

  54. thedaybreak on June 9, 2011 at 6:42 am

    Love this one.

    It’s easy to read!

  55. soxmandan on June 9, 2011 at 6:36 am

    dope…as….hell!

  56. Shinoda's Army on June 9, 2011 at 6:17 am

    I think it’s f*cking great

  57. margherita85 on June 9, 2011 at 5:41 am

    I like it! And sometimes we should change something….

  58. Ashikin on June 9, 2011 at 5:17 am

    1 of the comment said something like, “…it looks more feminine this time…” & i burst into laughter! sorry Bro, didn’t mean anything bad, that comment just totally get me ^__^

    i have to admit that i don’t have art/design talent at all. couldn’t comment much ^.^

  59. Alina on June 9, 2011 at 4:46 am

    Wow…. a little bit creepy and sombre, but stylish =)

  60. bomzis on June 9, 2011 at 3:44 am

    Very cool

  61. originalshoes96 on June 9, 2011 at 3:28 am

    It’s really cool but it’s quite dark. In my opinion, the green one was better. But yes, it’s nice!

  62. elmarvilino on June 9, 2011 at 3:26 am

    * the “MIKESHINODA.COM”

  63. 26pj on June 9, 2011 at 3:26 am

    Why such darkness?

  64. elmarvilino on June 9, 2011 at 3:26 am

    I like the Alice in Wonderland image on the right and the “MIKESHINODA” looks amazing ;D

  65. Rana LP addict on June 9, 2011 at 2:53 am

    That looks amazing!! But it’s so dark ..but the best !!! :)

  66. Orion on June 9, 2011 at 2:01 am

    makes me think of pepper and feel kinda spicy, like the upside down “SHINODA”, cool.

  67. anaaugustalp on June 9, 2011 at 1:58 am

    I really enjoyed it. You as always very creative and original! =)

  68. anjalika on June 9, 2011 at 1:52 am

    didn’t like it tht much..i like the older one..

  69. DS_insomniatic on June 9, 2011 at 12:59 am

    It’s fantastic! You’ve done a great job ;)

  70. nettiena on June 9, 2011 at 12:53 am

    It’s really nice. Good job! :)

  71. lpmaria on June 9, 2011 at 12:50 am

    It is very cool! i like it!=)

  72. rockermeg on June 9, 2011 at 12:49 am

    It’s awesome! Like that you have the tabs finally sorted out. Nice touch adding twitter too; my news feed is clogged up right now

  73. cineva9 on June 9, 2011 at 12:31 am

    very nice! :D

  74. katt888 on June 8, 2011 at 11:55 pm

    It’s great! I love it! =)

  75. nlopezdearenosa on June 8, 2011 at 11:38 pm

    I love how it’s so easy on my eyes! And your Alice- I’m in love with her! Can you give us any more information on her? When you’re releasing her?

  76. volk on June 8, 2011 at 11:21 pm

    It’s the absolute truth for me that I like everything you’re doing! :)

  77. pidgeon84 on June 8, 2011 at 11:20 pm

    I’m diggin it brohamn

  78. dcl1982 on June 8, 2011 at 10:55 pm

    Hey Mike! It’s me, Dori. I wound up getting a new e-mail, so I won’t be commenting to EVERY little thing you post on twitter. Anyway… I already told you on Twitter, quite emphatically, how much I love this new look!

  79. tinalein76 on June 8, 2011 at 10:54 pm

    Hi Mike, I like your new hompe style its really great :) Good job :)

  80. evooba on June 8, 2011 at 10:40 pm

    It’s by far the best layout you ever had! I love the way you combined the colors with the Alice In Wonderland background. I think it perfectly matches. And the tabs right on top with your flickr, soundcloud and twitter account are really useful. Now we got everything in one place :D Thx Mike!

  81. linkinnati on June 8, 2011 at 10:29 pm

    I love the new color!

  82. sshirlz on June 8, 2011 at 10:04 pm

    LOVE IT! Can’t go wrong with red and black. Feels more feminine this time.

  83. 3infinity on June 8, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    I like the idea, but could you make the background picture wider, the blank space on bigger screens is very annoying.

  84. fatimalp on June 8, 2011 at 9:26 pm

    looks awesome! :D I like it!

  85. camila on June 8, 2011 at 9:25 pm

    Cuando la vi pensé que me había equivocado de sitio, pero esta bella tu página Mike, siempre tan original, admito que el rojo nunca me ha gustado, pero aquí queda todo perdonado :D
    saludos y éxito en su nueva gira, entreguen todo lo bueno a lo que nos tienen acostumbrados y los esperamos en sudamerica, ya sabes que tienen la invitacion hecha hace mucho. Besos

  86. missleahe on June 8, 2011 at 8:43 pm

    i love it!

  87. aline4lp on June 8, 2011 at 8:30 pm

    I really like the new design, the colors red & black match great.
    Can’t wait to see you on tour & at the summit…

  88. ishinozuki on June 8, 2011 at 8:06 pm

    looks great!

  89. jpkaukonen on June 8, 2011 at 7:12 pm

    I love the colors way better. The logo and the bg are dope and so are the fonts ! See you in a week Mike, thanx for coming to my home Finland again (=

  90. tbone9 on June 8, 2011 at 7:09 pm

    Looks awesome, Mike! Two of my favorite colors :)

  91. theresiaria on June 8, 2011 at 7:04 pm

    it such a great layout ;D TWO THUMBS UP!!

  92. thegrandkaidbz on June 8, 2011 at 7:04 pm

    New Limp Bizkit single “Gold Cobra”

  93. betty108 on June 8, 2011 at 6:57 pm

    I like it a lot! Definitely my favorite ms.com layout as of now.

  94. persephonezkiss on June 8, 2011 at 6:55 pm

    Lookz okay! I don’t know if I would go with red but the BLOG, PHOTO AND TWITTER and other linkz at the top of the page waz a good idea. Have fun on the next leg of your tour.

  95. counter17 on June 8, 2011 at 6:51 pm

    ummm what can i say???
    Awesome like always…
    Simple and best…
    gr8 Mike and 10UP

  96. jdennis88 on June 8, 2011 at 6:42 pm

    It’s good! Red and black always looks good

  97. jdennis88 on June 8, 2011 at 6:42 pm

    It’s good! Red and black always look good

  98. argol8489 on June 8, 2011 at 6:23 pm

    I really like this very well, I love the detail of the lyrics, the figure of Alice is cool. You should too make a change, something in your hair. :)

  99. helazahg on June 8, 2011 at 6:21 pm

    I just realised that the background looks suspiciously a lot like tht alice in wonderland (i think thats what it was) sculpture thing you did. It actually looks really good.

  100. helazahg on June 8, 2011 at 6:18 pm

    Yea i love it. I really like the red (my favourite colour) and the way you desinged the texed ‘MIKESHINODA.COM’. way to go mike! Your awsome

  101. soufex on June 8, 2011 at 6:17 pm

    pretty cool, shinoda…. i approve of the ƨɐ.

    however, not sure if the background is buzzing or if i’m tripping pre-breakfast balls, though.

    sfx xox

  102. vickykun on June 8, 2011 at 6:14 pm

    I liked it*-*
    Despite the fact that´s too dark, I liked ;3
    It´s more like you.

  103. burningjavhy on June 8, 2011 at 6:01 pm

    as a true fan of lp or mike shinoda, receive my full support as the change made ​​on page
    uses colors and letters by which the true fans appreciate and aseptic
    I liked

  104. cincybmxlpfreak on June 8, 2011 at 5:36 pm

    I like it. It’s simple and not too different unlike Facebook where it changes everything in one sitting and then you gotta figure out how to use it again. Lol. I like that your “Alice” is in the background, also. :)

  105. korean6 on June 8, 2011 at 5:19 pm

    I think it’s more comfortable and very nice.I like dark red letters and grey black background.

  106. Gonzalo Martin on June 8, 2011 at 5:03 pm

    Congratulations mike!! The site looks awesome :)
    I’m Martin from LPU & Linkin Park Argentina, and with my team we are doing a makeover of our site too. Hope you can see us soon!! :)

  107. cyndi021598 on June 8, 2011 at 4:55 pm

    Pretty awesome to me! P.s. u guys should redo your song “fuse” that u did as Xero…. I LOVE IT!!!

  108. kathyaralp on June 8, 2011 at 4:47 pm

    loved, especially the Alice in Wonderland, you’ve made in 60 Birthday! Perfect

  109. abbykulyde on June 8, 2011 at 4:31 pm

    Like! simple and very easy to navigate.. :D

  110. linkinparkette on June 8, 2011 at 4:28 pm

    ohh its so cool. i really like how u got some letters in mikeshinoda upside down :3

  111. lpuniverse on June 8, 2011 at 4:09 pm

    I love the new site Mike :) It is really cool. It is easy to get around and very appealing to the eye. Good job <3

  112. yydisco0913 on June 8, 2011 at 3:55 pm

    I found from back to now, you show a special favor to the portrait who wears a gas mask. Does that mean something for you? haha:) Whatever, I like the renewl of your blog.

  113. ecosufpr on June 8, 2011 at 3:51 pm

    The red is kind of strange, because I was already used to the green letters. But it’s cool. I wish I could make my junior company’s WordPress like yours. I’m just too umb to this kind of things…

  114. Julian on June 8, 2011 at 3:48 pm

    You should add a ‘edit post’ option for us =]

  115. mclp2008 on June 8, 2011 at 3:34 pm

    Está genial Mike. Is great.

  116. coliinreiid on June 8, 2011 at 3:16 pm

    I just had a thought. Wouldn’t it be cool to change to the previous themes that you had before till now?!

  117. Nina Nine on June 8, 2011 at 3:14 pm

    ..I like it, any color with black looks good. But I want to know, if it’s can, why the change? I mean red and green are complementary, so I want to know if change something with you, or just you woke up today and think, I could change my page!
    Sorry if this engry you, it’s just a dude!
    But I like it the new desing! :D

  118. therosko on June 8, 2011 at 3:10 pm

    i realy like the new design! as some people already have said Alice on the side looks really good and also the combination of all the colors (black and red mainly) is really nice. but since you are asking i would also say that i think it will take some time to get used to the new heading (the inverted letters). i think only that it’s a bit confusing how less the space on the top is :) but still i really like it! the best one by far.
    rossi (rvi)

  119. ailinaannbe1988 on June 8, 2011 at 3:10 pm

    it’s awesome mike.

  120. thepixelpod on June 8, 2011 at 2:56 pm

    hehe black n red the best color for me in a website , so this is perfect ;3.
    something like http://www.lpspain.com/web/
    but MS is better ;D

  121. terribletoothache on June 8, 2011 at 2:54 pm

    There’s still a great part of the page unused, and I’ve always thought that red and black are good friends, but black and orange (or yellow) are a great partner, anyway, the new design looks pretty good :)

  122. ErbseLP on June 8, 2011 at 2:52 pm

    Pitch-black and bloodred… I love it, muahahaha. :D
    But I read every time “Mike Adonihs” because it’s upside down… xD

  123. derekoswald on June 8, 2011 at 2:52 pm

    Looks incredible. Best design to date! -Derek (LPAssociation.com)

  124. shinodatwin on June 8, 2011 at 2:40 pm

    I think it’s really awesome. Love the new layout!

  125. juliendevetter on June 8, 2011 at 2:38 pm

    Hi mike !

    I love your music since 10 years. I do not want an answer but I just want to say thank you. You and LP. I’m studying graphics and photography and I love your style!, here is my website : julien-devetter.com (if you’re bored ;-) )

    Thanks mike !

  126. aishalp on June 8, 2011 at 2:34 pm

    It is cool :P

  127. samanthalundstrom on June 8, 2011 at 2:31 pm

    I think it is great! :D

  128. adiek84 on June 8, 2011 at 2:31 pm

    I just thought earlier this day that your blog needs a new layout and only a few hours later you grant my wish. What I really like about the new layout is, that it looks really organized and clean. Also long overdue is the menu with the links to your other pages on soundcloud, Twitter & Co. The header with the upside down “Shinoda” is pretty awesome, too, and your Oyakodon-Alice (or short: Alicodon XD) makes a good background. So, well done!

  129. Alexandra Nofi on June 8, 2011 at 2:25 pm

    It’s cute!!! *squeals*

    Nice to have a photo page back up, plus the twitter page too, very cool. If I didn’t know any better I’d say you may actually LIKE twitter now XDDD

  130. lis0406 on June 8, 2011 at 2:20 pm

    i love the sexy Alicia next to the coments.
    AWESOME MIKE!!

  131. MetaMorph on June 8, 2011 at 2:16 pm

    Looks better now, the background pic is great, haha! The header’s pretty original too.

  132. coliinreiid on June 8, 2011 at 2:14 pm

    Looks awesome! This is my favourite design by far. Now you just need to update your Twitter background!

  133. Xenith on June 8, 2011 at 2:12 pm

    Very nice Mike, but next time consider helping a freelancer out *hint hint* :) – I would be happy to offer my services for free… In fact I would give my left arm to have your domain on my portfolio. (Just like noroadsleft.com!)

    WordPress expert of 6+ years = http://www.leanneborrowman.co.uk

  134. smokins on June 8, 2011 at 2:12 pm

    awesomeness, i love that Alice painting, the colors and the fonts are awesome too, the pale violet red and the grey with the concept of the background art makes me think of quinten tarentino’s movies.. dunno why!..lol

    How I said on twitter, I’d rather the color green, but it is great too… and about layout it looks clearer, I’m able to check pictures and other things…

    Looks Great.

    Looking good!
    Just need to edit the CSS colours for your subscribe labels that Ana pointed out.

    Your Alice is my avatar since the first day you showed her here – she is fantastic! I love the new angle and the colours (or rather their absence). The rest I still need to explore a bit…

    Change is always needed from time to time. Looks good.

    Well since I’ve got the basic 1280×1084 screen, everything looks just fine to me. :D

    I like your new page style :) the time for changing has already come :) ps: We are still waiting for New Turkey Concerts :) ;)

    I submitted that last comment on accident without finishing it.

    Needs edit button T_T

  150. kathyxx on June 8, 2011 at 1:57 pm

    OMG

    Also, I’m in my school’s computer graphics lab with the 16:9 screens. There’s a large empty space beyond the background.

  151. lpfmfan on June 8, 2011 at 1:57 pm

    Very awesome, you need to change the color of the ‘notify me of follow-up comments via email’ and ‘Notify me of new posts via email.’ doesn’t fit. :b

    That’s the only thing that doesn’t look right. Other than that good job. Btw hope you liked the keychain I gave you at KROQ Weenie Roast (girl that came from TX).

    Love the design! Although I think it would be slightly better if the theme was centered not left aligned but that’s just me :)

  153. drichester on June 8, 2011 at 1:56 pm

    It was great!

  154. aberu on June 8, 2011 at 1:56 pm

  155. anaphx on June 8, 2011 at 1:55 pm
