LIVING THINGS First Birthday Project [Updated 20th June]

LIVING THINGS 1st Birthday Project

From the person that organised and delivered Rob’s 34th Birthday Video I announce this new project of mine . I would love to see my fellow LP fans come together and celebrate such a milestone for the best album of 2012.

So the first birthday for Linkin Park’s LIVING THINGS is due to hit on June 26th (the US release of it). So in celebration of it, and to show what a wonderful fan base we are to the six awesome guys, yet again, I have decided to work with various LP fansites to bring together a slideshow dedicated for this moment in time.

In order for this project to go ahead I only request one small thing. If you have the hard copy of LIVING THINGS, take a photo of it with a sign saying “Happy Birthday” in either your mother language or English. This sign has to be hand drawn or typed (it can be typed out and printed out) but it must be in a photo together. If you have the digital copy of it, on your iPod (or any other portable media player) take a photo of it playing your favourite song with your happy birthday sign. You do not have to appear in the photo if you don’t want to. The submission has to be that of a photo you took.

I am really not fussed about the quality of it, it can be taken from any sort of camera, as long as it has “Happy Birthday” on a piece of paper in either your mother tongue or English, your soft or hard copy of LIVING THINGS and if you want to, a photo of you. In your email submission, please have your twitter/LPU username in it (or if neither your full name) for the credits and your country to show the diversity of fans.

USA Residents: If you live in the US, please submit the initials of your state in your entry.

I must stress that “Happy Birthday” cannot be digitally added. It defeats the purpose of a sign. It maybe done on the computer and printed out, or handwritten on paper. You are welcomed to add photo effects to the photo if you please.

Kerrang! January 13 2001 Linkin Park – This Year’s Hottest New Band – Scribe – 2 articles

-please do not steal-
-please ask before any translation work-

Article 1:

The hottest band of 2001 have battled drug addiction, family problems, and accusations that they’re a ‘boyband’ to deliver the most exciting debut album since ‘Korn’. They are LINKIN PARK, and they are coming your way….

Kansas City, Missouri, isn’t the best town to pass through in cold weather, let alone the extremely brutal conditions this winter has brought with it. The streets are beyond dangerous; black ice on the highways makes driving at any speed a treacherous task, temperatures have plummeted well below zero, and there’s a whipping wind that penetrates the bones, no matter how well they’re insulated under heavy coats and scarves. Chester Bennington, for one, is thankful that he got to stay in a hotel last night, as opposed to the tomb-like confines of a tour bus.

Kerrang! Linkin Park July 20 2002 Scribe

-please do not steal-
-please ask before any translation work-

Postcards from the Edge
Linkin Park have spent a year at the heart of the “most backwards, blatant, unethical, immoral business” on the planet. This is their story…

 “I can tell you exactly what I think about the music industry: it’s the enemy. The music industry is the most backwards, blatant, unethical and immoral type of business to I’ve ever seen. The only people who use extortion to the extent of the music industry is The Mob, and the only difference is that it’s legal for the music industry to get away with it.”

RK 101-LP

HOW TO SUCCEED IN ROCK’N’ROLL BY REALLY, REALLY TRYING

Linkin Park are more than the eight-times-platinum nice guys of nu metal. They’re crusaders who’ll endure any torture – even near death spider bites – to bring salvation to a nation of teenage anger prisoners. And their new album Meteora, might just save your life, too.

This one time, at band camp – okay, it was actually Ozzfest 2001, but it really felt like being at camp, and there were bands there, and it was summer – this huge spider bit Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington on the ass. Bennington is one of Linkin Park’s two singers, the one who does the real singing and most of the screaming. The spider was, like, a black widow or something. The welt – which Bennington shows off, with a mix of pride and terror, on Linkin Park’s best-selling DVD Frat Party at the Pankake Festival – is awe-inspiring in a Jackass kind of way: black and blue and about the size of an orange.

Smashed gear, 40 different choruses and one major control freak. Expect another monster hit for Linkin Park.

With Hybrid Theory certified as the biggest selling album of 2001, you would have to expect some modest alterations to vocalist 26 year old Chester Bennington’s lifestyle. “Even if I had bought a house in Malibu, I don’t think it is something that people are interested in,” he says agitatedly. “OI don’t care when Tom Cruise buys a new house. It is not something that makes me want to run out and buy a magazine to read about it.” But there’s no denying that everything had changed for all six members of of Linkin Park. Emcee/Pro Tools whiz Mike Shinoda, 25, can’t even venture out for a hamburger in peace. “I tend to get recognised in fast food restaurants,” he says bewildered. “I expect to get recognised if I am in a record store because people are thinking about music, but I don’t get why Linkin Park would be at the forefront of people’s minds when they are thinking about greasy hamburgers.”
