Linkin Park on Saturday Night Live:

BTW, this is where the lasers from our SNL performance came from:
Thanks to LPLive.net, I just read a Linkin Park news article that may be one of the funniest I’ve seen. It’s a roughly translated version (thanks, Google!) of an Israeli piece detailing “Linkin Park’s demands” for the performance. This is what’s traditionally called a “rider” for the show; it details the things the band needs from day to day–every day–at the venue, to maintain normalcy and regularity as they travel on tour. Here’s what ynet.co.il listed:
Linkin Park demands:
- “A sterile zone from smoking and alcohol,”
- “Personal rooms of the band,”
- “[Behind special rooms], a gym,”
- “Sausages, Belgian waffles with maple syrup oatmeal porridge,”
- “A package of throat,”
- “Food for eight days,”
- “100 towels and 24 black and yellow, hung on special racks made of metal and gold, so they can see the twinkling in the dark suspension”
Apparently, if Linkin Park doesn’t get 124 towels of specific colors, hung on twinkling racks of metal and gold, we won’t go on stage.
I need to start asking the other guys about this request list, because I’ve never seen it backstage, and I want to know where the hell to find it. Two reasons. One: I would love to see what those racks of metal and gold look like. I bet they’re amazing.
And two: I want to know what a “package of throat” is.
Ron English just sent me these great images, for marijuana products that could be available to Californians in the not too distant future:
Made me think of the “High Times Editorial Office”…
Just saw these online, and realized how high the bar is really set when it comes to naming an album and making a cover. I hope to someday capture even the slightest glimmer of the genius seen here.

When I got home, I received this glorious youtube clip in my email inbox.
Thanks to Ryu from Get Busy for sending this video. Remember kids, hip hop is an attitude, it can never go out.
This dude named Stefan is a photographer. He takes pictures involving Stormtroopers. One a day. For one whole year. They are awesome.
