Which awesome person scanned the article? That was a good read, thanks!
But angry old dudes are awesome
Great idea. A cover at one angle, turns into something else.
I take it you're not a fan of Nine Inch Nails.
Cool, glad you liked it!
Chester's interviews always come across the most interesting and in recent years he has become really down to earth and open about what the band are doing. It was a good read and besides that, it makes the front page look pretty.
Good God, they're all coming out of their caves. I'd ask someone to kill me now, but it's physically impossible to inflict any type of injury on me.
Careful, I think those caveman style clubs could make you dizzy...
Do you have to sign up for mikeshinodaclan.com to read the scan?
It's going to be like this: Before hearing it-"Why they changed it?!? What's wrong with them?!?! They still have Hahn?!?!"
After hearing it- "It's the best thing they ever did! LP RULES!!!!"
Same o same o fair weather fans. *chuckles*
We have them. They're on the front page and in the first post of this thread.
I was thinking 'polarization' is more relevant with magnets than polaroid cameras... What do you mean by "polaroid effect?' How the picture looks when it's developing? Polaroid is called Polaroid because the camera uses polarizing filters. There is nothing 'polarizing' on the film. The film is developing because it was already exposed to the polarized filters...
"No More Sorrow" and "Hands Held High" to name a few, don't seem like they have a lost message in my opinion. There's also alot of metaphors in A Thousand Suns where, if you get it, they don't have a lost message either... I'm just sayin...
"We're in the best place of our lives, mentally, physically and spiritually."
That's not a word they used frequently in their earlier interviews.
Yeah, I'm really not sure about this ;"
"People acted like, you know, wow that's a new invention, thats hitting, you know,
then they're trying to put a label on it, so they can package it, water it down, and sell that shit for their own purpose,
they can't deal with something that don't have a label to it,
we are constantly evolving
shit is constantly changing,
it's all about change, know what I mean,
that's what I'm talking about,
what you focusing on?
you're focusing on the hybrid,
because that's what it's all about"
That change is what occurred, it did not happen to some people's specifications, but that's art. It's not like a T-Shirt you order on Amazon. You can customize it to suit your preferences.
That's a very good point, but NIN's angst isn't Somewhere I Belong level angst. Everytime I hear the chorus of SIB I'm looking for the razorblades. I hate to insult the band, but after the 50th time re-writing that chorus they should've realized that Don Gilmore was not a good fit for the album and dropped his ass right there. Imagine how Meteora would've sounded if Rubin had produced it? The album would've been a creative masterpiece instead of a Hybrid Theory clone.
I'm so glad LP grew out of that. It wasn't doing them any justice as artists.
I don't know, man. Wanting to heal and feel seems less angsty than wearing a crown of shit.
And no, before you even BEGIN to think it, I'm not defending Somewhere I Belong in any way. Somewhere I Belong deserves a special place in hell. A place reserved for the pieces of shit created by pieces of shit originating from [INSERT PERSON YOU DO NOT LIKE'S NAME HERE] eating a bowl full of steaming shit. Shit. And shit.
I don't think it was *that* bad, certainly was a good song for who I was when it came out. Anywho, I believe there's nothing wrong with emotive songs as long as they are universally relatable. Look at the Beatles for instance: not as many people love them today as they once did, but those who do still listen to them hail from all age groups. Who doesn't get by with a little help from their friends?
People who want to heal, feel, and be close to something real.
I'd just as quickly listen to Rebecca Black's Friday if the alternative was Somewhere I Belong. I'd kill my firstborn child before listening to that song.
If the Klondike Bar people were like, "Would you listen to Somewhere I Belong for a Klondike Bar?" I'd slap them in the face with a katana and piss on them.
And I believe you were meaning to say, "Who doesn't get by WITHOUT a little help from their friends?"
The notion that Linkin Park are even capable of selling out is ridiculous. What would they be selling out, their indie cred? Their first album sold more than most artists sell in a lifetime! Hybrid Theory put a nice pop sheen on a stale genre. That's it. They're not some influential, paradigm-shifting band who suddenly went pop. They've always been pop. I don't care how many chunky guitar riffs or woe-is-me songs Hybrid Theory had. It wasn't any less mainstream than every other top 40 act at the time.
