    So pumped for this album. Waiting for a Linkin Park record is like waiting for Christmas Day when you were a kid.

    You're honestly on the dot as far as that goes. I mean, it's a long wait for each Christmas but even when I was waiting for Meteora, the feeling remains the same.

    On another note, I was a HUGE fan of Fort Minor and I miss the "old Mike" so I am very anxious for this. Hey Mike how about a special exclusive for LPA? :trollface:

    Here is my theroy on the album title. We know that the band has always dreaded naming albums like some of could have been chosen MTM ones, I have recently been giving some serious thought to the notion that we THE FANS named the new album(hear me out).

    During the puzzles for BID after a hint from LP this happend

    "Living Things Theory


    LPA users have been hard at work on the code of the numbers since the Cypher 5. 4. announcement and the stand-out theory is the "Living Things Theory". Here's how it works. Coded into the page source of the Burn It Down puzzles are a series of 5 digit numbers followed by 4 digit numbers, these are added each time a puzzle piece is revealed on the site. By taking these numbers and subtracting all four digits of the second number with the last four digits of the first number we are only left with the first digit of the sequence. Subtract this from the result of the first calculation and we are left with a number between 1-26, which is then ultimately translated into the alphabet. Here is a grid of how Living Things was derived using this method. What this means is unknown but it's the only legible result so far. It's also worth noting that website http://livingthings.linkinpark.com is being prepped as a sub-domain which currently links to the http://burnitdown.linkinpark.com page. Keep your eyes on the LPA for any updates and discuss this theory on the LPA Forums.

    01. <!--53282 3265--> | (3282-3265)-5 =12 -- L
    02. <!--41602 1589--> | (1602-1589)-4 =09 -- I

    05. <!--79546 9530--> | (9546-9530)-7 =09 -- I

    10. <!--39376 9365--> | (9376-9365)-3 =08 -- H
    11. <!--84149 4132--> | (4149-4132)-8 =09 -- I

    16. <!--58780 8756--> | (8780-8756)-5 =19 -- S"

    Now what I have thought from that post a few weeks back during the puzzle was who had proof this was the rite solution or "cypher"? The first teaser was put up by the band as "LP2K12" why? If the band had picked LIVING THINGS as the title why didnt that tumblr page have a different name or at least one that eluded to the title LIVING THINGS?
    We know Mike has always kept very good eyes on the LPA an other fansites proably out of wanting to stay in touch with how his fanbase feels so during everyones puzzle headaches with no snippets maybe Mike saw that someone decided to use the ATS method of the binary puzzles to try to come up with an answer to get that BID snippet.
    Picture LP having the songs but not the album title but they have picked BID as their 1st single off the new album and are working to get an album title so that the album pre-sale can begin with the new single debut. So perhaps Mike most likely or one of the other band members saw the forums talking about the cypher and coming up with LIVING THINGS as a result among a few other coded letters from the cypher based upon other theroies and Mike or the band decided that that would be the album title.

    Yes I know the domain name was taken but how do we know it was just picked by the band when they saw us all puzzled and debating what LIVING THINGS could mean and with all the millions of dollars and webmasters they have as a band just quickly snatched up the domain name? I know your gonna think I'm crazy but I'd love somebody to ask Mike this at sometime to know for sure. To me it makes perfect sense the band doesn't like naming albums and always keep some thought of what their fans are thinking especially when they delibrately put out a puzzle for a new song from a new album to see how we are reacting to the new info. So someone on this site comes up with LIVING THINGS and the band goes wow thats funny our fans our using the ATS method even though it wont unlock any part of the song because we have another "game" that will do that but hey "were all sitting here as a band trying to name the album and we still dont have a name, we just put out the first teaser on a tumblr page titled LP2K12 because we dont have an album title still. WOW look at all the reactions to this LIVING THINGS this person decoded using a pointless theroy some people loathe it some are puzzled others like it so maybe that's it you guys let's call the new album LIVING THINGS!"

    Again I know it sounds pointless but almost everyone agrees on here that LIVING THINGS is odd different reasons for different people but it did and does strike most as odd. And the title has been given barely insight from the band,Mike told NME why they chose that title but LIVING THINGS is so vague that even if they had just chose the title he could still honestly give an explanation as to what the album title means in relation to the songs and what they were about.

    Maybe I'm crazy but I'd like to hear your thoughts(whoever bothers to read this whole post anyway)

    Yeah, no. It just goes along with the song titles. In My Remains, Skin To Bone, I'll Be Gone...

    Mike said that it was called living things because the album deals with emotions and shit that "living things" go through

    In My Remains sounds like Hands Held High. I love the ending of that song. One of the best parts of all LP songs ever. Too bad the rest of the song wasn't as amazing as the ending
