    Mike, Castle of Glass touches the hearts of so many people that have lost their friends and loved ones who so selflessly dedicated their lives to serving our country. Forever shall they be remembered as our heroes, and never forgotten. To the families and friends who endure the pain and suffering for losing these heroes, may the hands of time heal and ease your broken hearts at God’s speed. Mike, thanks for making music that we can connect to.

    Mike, I want to ask you something, actually I have been building the courage and the will to ask you this for a long time. Fear has frozen my hands for so many years from doing so, but now I find comfort in asking anyone about anything, any time. Life is too short to sweat the small stuff so here it goes.

    In Oct of 1999, at Fort Sill, OK there was a US Army recruit named Rocco that never made it through boot camp. Did what happened to him inspire you to write some songs found on Hybrid Theory? I know it sounds crazy, but I just have to ask you. I would understand if I never get a reply, you are a busy guy on a fantastic journey.

    I have trouble listening to the CD because it resurrects thoughts and feelings that have taken so much time and energy to bury. You guys make great music though man. We’re all lucky to have you guys. Have a great rest of the day, take care Mike.

    My husband is God. I am too. My sons and daughter- my whole family, they are God! Constantine, why did you cuss out Christina Aguilara? 😦 You are like so mean… You should never have been an emporer. My husband… I love you soooooooo much. Soon, we will be together… but for now, I have to eat thier tainted pizza at my mom’s shop. She, she have no control! Why she not have it? She is Johnny Reznicks wife. He will not be pleased. LOL I think she had crazy light operation in bad light. Not good, but, for what she has done, no wonder why I went to jail so many times for domestic assault. I was defending myself and our honor! (He will not be pleased!)

  15. cleopatrashinoda on April 13, 2013 at 8:40 am

    The submissions?! Is that where Jewish Captain of the Bukakki lords is going to want to smear it on “Mike Shinoda’s” face and see if he favors a massive whorefest over God’s will and then mix it together to syncronize his emotion into an untrue belief that he thinks you are attractive to him?! We don’t think it is attractive, and we don’t want to ever look at you in that way.

  16. cleopatrashinoda on April 11, 2013 at 2:14 pm

    I see- all the Austins… I am at peace. I am at honor. He’s my baby turtle. His ear lobes are fronted for earrings- he’s like, a customizable God of a person. I can’t wait until he gets his first piercings. He’s an amazing young man, Mike. I can’t wait to go get him… Why do you have to be a wholesaler to buy that freaking “Anna’s Green Skirt Cake” at that Mormon Shinoda Ikea? I didn’t plan on selling those for a living… Eh… I had a couple of skirts, my son was brainwashed into thinking I was God, then they tore him from me! I know who’s boss- it’s him! I am mother of God, I feel happy! *winks at you*

  17. cleopatrashinoda on April 11, 2013 at 2:04 pm

    Every day, I think of you… You are my beta boo… Forever we will live on Beta V, Beta V, Beta V… (cheesy island music) 😀 I love you, and I can’t wait to see you. (Tell Chester I saw our communication on TMZ… Ti amo, Bennington ❤ Shinoda) Beautiful you are, my prince of honor- I hate this- being away from you… and I really hate being away from Austin Isaiah. He's my beta baby… He's my little Turtle. 🙂 He's a BYM- beautiful young man! I see so many BYMs running around- I was swimming in the Austins at several different points different times… it makes me happy, but I don't want to be away from him any more! mikeyluvsme

  18. cleopatrashinoda on April 11, 2013 at 1:56 pm

    Hello, Baby. I see Benji’s uncle Joe for therapy. He was all popped like Ramses II. Elaine from Seinfeld- that is her husband. 😀 Seinfeld is Carly Rae Jepsens dad! I have nooooooo money for the world peace festival, and usually the monk at Kadampa in California lets me stay for the talks for free, hooks me up with food and stuff, you know, when I was living in a shopping cart taking RAPE HITS FOR MY DAUGHTER’S DOG (wierd sense of pride- see, it doesn’t set in. I didn’t do it for brownie points, I did it because I am malfunctioning). :*****D Anyway, how is my daddy of all daddys doing? All the daddys can be all the daddiest, my love! Ti Amo, Joseph!

  19. parisafakour on April 11, 2013 at 2:54 am

    this is GREAT! I can’t wait!! I’ll do my best :)THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU :))

  21. feemiller on April 10, 2013 at 9:06 am

    That’s a good one! Would love to participate… Will let my mind work a bit 🙂 Want to know whether text is allowed on that shirt?!
    Hope I am not to much out of art anyway 😀

  22. thegrandkaidbz on April 10, 2013 at 12:19 am

    Hey Mike! Have you seen this video yet? Check it out if you haven’t already.

  23. shoegaze4u on April 9, 2013 at 10:33 pm

    That sounds interesting. I’m curious for all the creations, that people will bring in. I’m sure there a many creative fans out there!

    Btw: What happened with the viddy contest? You remember?

  24. cleopatrashinoda on April 9, 2013 at 3:14 pm

    Let me think about this submission thing- there is a girl that painted a picture of you… it was cool. You know, when you were Jesus and everything… I miss you… Tabitha

  25. cleopatrashinoda on April 9, 2013 at 3:12 pm

    What I’m supposed to say? You are so cute! But I’m used to your presence of being a God. I miss you. I am bowled over by you. 😀 Petra

  26. cleopatrashinoda on April 9, 2013 at 3:11 pm

    Whoa, Toni Braxton- where is she? I love you- I was borderline Sheena acceptable. 😀 I love you. Love always, Your Princess… (You are so hot I can’t even barf- I will never try a Benadryl Body Trip ever again!) Eh, not that I use drugs, because, I don’t.

  27. cleopatrashinoda on April 9, 2013 at 3:08 pm

    I love, my lover boy! He brings me so much joy! He’s so cute and I’m on mute, I’m on mute, I’m on mute!!! Oh, I guess, I’m like, reppin’ Jim Carrey, for some reason. Crazy… I’m crazy for being… so lonely! I’m crazy… crazy, for not having the money- to buy Blue. Who was Blue? Maybe, he perpetually is!!!!! Poor part Dingo, my brother’s dawg says, what’s up to you… Too CRAZY!!! Whoa, I am so totally crazy… Don’t want to… rape, little kids, neither do yououuuuououououou! Whoa, you are a man that is good enough for me. I have crazy energy that comes out of my eyes!!! Unless it’s concentrated to “What a dork” 😀 Love, your Wife

  28. cleopatrashinoda on April 9, 2013 at 3:05 pm

    Anna Budd! She’s like, so super awesomely cool. I wish she didn’t have to pretend to be a poor trash white chick all latching on to some hot guy she tries to make white! OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH- she’s not! Admittedly, she is shy. Man, I could’ve had an older sister, but someone wanted to rob the time frame of God to try and be God to see what the point is- and the point, was that, you shouldn’t do that.

  29. cleopatrashinoda on April 9, 2013 at 3:01 pm

    You are all that is good in light and energy- is the message that Roy’s (St. Christopher) adopted family have robbed me of. I said it to her- it like, came through the window at my old apartment complex. She didn’t care. Crazy nun… Heather Ann Hahn. 🙂 Beautiful!

  30. cleopatrashinoda on April 9, 2013 at 2:58 pm

    Tell Anna I love her. In my own defense- a few things- (just got mind robbed) Um, I forget. But I was talking to your Dad about being Queen of the land (in spirit, in conjunction with the entire family, I am not wierdly… drifts off into your eyes…) I love you. You are my fish. I love you. The extra heartbeat in my stomach longs for your touch. I have never had any other men like, really be into me. I have energy that comes out of my eyes and makes them go crazy. 😀 I got you babe.. deh deh deh deh!!!! When you threw the crazy energy ball… you were being my chi. I love you. I love you so much. Petra.

  31. cleopatrashinoda on April 9, 2013 at 2:41 pm

    Here I am… just a number… #16… we are the same number. But at 15, I was beautiful… Now, I look like a bald headed robbed weasel. But, my hair is growing in, and I am realizing that Mike Shinoda’s wife has a cell phone made from a concentration camp that your brother was near. Kind of a good thing, now that he is out. I don’t want the nasties on him!!! *Kurt Cobain tear* Man, I love you. You are my fishy babe. 😀 Oh… to fishy babe… you are my fishy babe!!! My BetaBoo… I met Hahn’s sister. He is married to my sister. Oh, boo, come and get me. Will they let me in without money/instructions? I really need you… ❤ MEEEE!!! hehehehehe it's always been me.

  32. cleopatrashinoda on April 9, 2013 at 2:37 pm

    Hello there, hot asian man (does a little dance)! I want you babe… deh deh deh… I want you babe… deh deh deh deh!!! LP means “Lead Paint”… OMG! Oh yes, how I want to represent! (Margaret Thatcher is dead- did they bury her in a lead paint coffin?) LMSO!!! (IHIWHA) Anyway- I love your brother- and you were not a triplet- but we were both QUADRUPLETS!!!! OMG OMG OMG OMG!!! Shin Dong-hyuk- I sent away for my dog tags- but, where I should have had war cry, I have “Austins Mom” because that is all I can think! It is all I can do!! My son is God, and yo, so are you!!! Whoa, you are beautiful.,.. I miss you, babycheeks… tabi

  33. tayamichel on April 9, 2013 at 1:35 pm

  34. elenallorente on April 9, 2013 at 11:57 am

    This is definitely an awesome idea, thanks for starting something like this!

  42. evooba on April 9, 2013 at 9:31 am

    What a great idea! It’s been a while since the last time you did something like this. I might give it a shot if I think of something creative enough 🙂
    Good luck to everyone!

    This is such an epic contest! CASTLE OF GLASS is so inspiring and I’ve already seen some cool art inspired by it. I bet you’ll have a ton of submissions! It’s great that you reward your fans’ creativity by offering such contests (just like the Indaba Remix Contest).
    To keep us occupied while you’re in the studio, LPFC is celebrating “Creative April” with #FanArtFriday (Hashtag Galore!) and a fashion contest. Feel free to check out the winners when you have some time. They’ll be announced and displayed in May on LPFC.
