    Shinoda's post says we did well at solving the last two puzzles, and that the answers to those could be found here. There isn't much for him to say about how well we're doing at this one. It's not that difficult, after all. :)

    Well, we don't know how close, or how far we are seeing as he hasn't said anyone is close at all.....yet.
    I am pretty sure now "A Thousand Suns" is the new album title.

    I'm not sure there will be another message after this one. I think the next piece of information will probably be Mike saying "The Catalyst our new single will be released August 2nd off our new album A Thousand Suns released september 20th". Maybe.

    Wait....
    The picture itself was scrambled....what happens if the text is scrambled too?
    Maybe someone could at least try it.

    EDIT: Could this mean that we have found the answer already?

    And actually, I can't confirm that the logo there IS the new logo. It might have just been used because they probably haven't made the new logos/art yet and that's why we're still seeing MTM era logos.

    Plus it would be kinda hard to put together a logo we haven't seen yet. But i'm praying that we get a new logo. I don't really like the MTM one

    I think the MTM one is the best logo they've had. I would only want a new logo it is was better.

    Yeah, that circle crest in my opinion is the coolest logo ever! I wasn't a fan of the M2M style font though..

    Yeah I'm agree, that's the best logo they have in my opinion. Even so, if they make another logo for this album it will be alright.

    Does anybody else think A Thousand Suns sounds like its in reference to how they described the first atomic bombs? and MTM also has to do with atomic bombs and doomsday...

    Hey...where's the white strip down the side of the solved puzzle come from if there's no gaps in the original puzzle? Small movements could make a big difference with these damn pixelated letters.

    LincolnParc – “Famous quote by J Oppenheimer / Bhagavad Gita:
“If the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the mighty one.” and “Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.” Note the Thousand Suns. My guess is, as Darkstryder said is that the new hints are references to J Oppenheimer, as he was referred to as the catalyst of theoretical physics and is seen quoting a thousand suns. Nukes. This can only mean an antiwar political concept album. Maybe a rebellion anthem like Smells like Teen Spirit. So now my prediction is the next hint / song name or what ever I’d gonna be “Destroyer of Worlds”

    M: "…Or maybe it’s a sci-fi love story. Or maybe it’s a fantasy novel about two lonely aliens from Uranus (heh) who find that the only way to stop an evil superpower from destroying the universe is to create the first vuvuzela-powered lazer beam. I think these are all equally plausible conclusions. Actually, mine are more plausible."

    And I just noticed that in that blog post, Mike divides each question with a italicised /// just because people have been overanalyzing that in the messages. :lol:

    I used the "Maximum RGB" feature to get this. are the red pixels part of the puzzle? i was trying to rearrange the red pixels for each letter (each letter has a 4x3 pixel box) but i'm not sure if that's what we are really supposed to do to make the text more readable. what do u guys think?

    First of all welcome to the LPA.
    I think maybe you could be onto something, there is a green one there too.
    I am not sure, try what you like and tell us what you come up with.

    People have said this;
    "The Catalyst /// August 2" - there are 3 slashes.
    then there is "A Thousand Suns // September" - there are now two slashes
    Maybe a countdown of messages, each having some important information/details, so maybe there will be one more message with only one slash?

    I was thinking the same thing. And at the pace they're going with the "messages", there could be one more either late this week or early next week, with 1 slash, then around the middle to end of July, *boom* ALBUM ART?!?!?!?

    Album art with no writing on it (such as LP logo and album title) then it will reveal it all like The Catalyst one.
